i.e, if I have a customers ID column in a gridview and I'd like to show the customers last name for each rows ID..then I just: convert the boundfield to a templatefield rowupdating net-67rowupdating net-71rowupdating net-55

Find Control("lbl Project Status"), Label) Try If In Str(lbl Text.

Then there are a couple more steps to make it to where you adding the selected value in the update) Yes, you are correct, I am not using any datasources for the gridview, but in the Itemtemplate and the Edit Item Template the Text parameter is set equal to a bind statement as follows (see the example further down where i ref a datasource for the ddl): Or in the case of the drop down list I am binding with the Selected Value parameter, but of course you can see I lied and am pointing to a different datasource completely for my list.

you can always just turn the boundfield into a template field then put whatever control you want in templatefield then bind that control to any datasource you'd like (once again I prefer linq over all of the rest).

This is not necessarily a bad thing, we can still get all the functionality you can get from going from the codebehind. ♦ I prefer to use linq, but the fact is that when your using controls like the Grid View or Detials View etc..
