Please keep in mind that there are many different ways to update the database using the Grid View control depending on the type of data you are updating and the functionality the user need and there are many solutions to achieve the same end result.
In the above tutorial I tried to give you one of the easiest solutions and I hope you can go explore Grid View control editing further after learning the basics from this tutorial. Thanks Thank you for writing this, after searching thru an unknown number of web sites, your tutorial had my issue resolved within 10 min!
You need to include the Grid View Command Field column to add Edit, Update and Cancel Buttons in the Grid View. You need to include Template Field for every column you want to provide Editing because Template Field provides you both Item Template and Edit Item Template to create interface for two separate Grid View modes. You need to handle Grid View events such as Row Editing, Row Canceling Edit and Row Updating to provide desired editing functionality.
Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="10" Data Key Names="Product ID" Auto Generate Columns="false" onrowcancelingedit="Grid View1_Row Canceling Edit" onrowediting="Grid View1_Row Editing" onrowupdating="Grid View1_Row Updating"In the above code, I set two properties Show Edit Button and Show Cancel Button of Command Field.
