Insert, Update And Delete Rows In ASP.NET DetailsView Control

Introduction

DetailsView is a DataBound control of ASP.NET used to display a single record from a DataSource in the form of a table, where each row represents a field of the record. The DetailsView control allows you to insert, edit and delete records.

Description

Initially, I have loaded data from a database to details view, each record is displayed in the details view of each page. After the user clicks the update button to edit and update selected record details, if he or she clicks the Add Row Button then they will be able to add a new record to the database.

AllowPaging >>> true/false

To check whether the DetailsView should support navigation.

More Information

DetailsView Events I used in this sample:

  • PageIndexChanging
    This event fires when the DetailsView moves to another record. The first one fires before and the second one fires after a page is changed.

  • ItemUpdating
    This event fires when an item is updated. The first one fires before and the second one fires after the record is updated.

  • ItemDeleting
    This event fires when the current record is deleted. The first one fires before and other one fires after the record is deleted.
