If I call the Bind Grid() at the start of Row Updating then the Drop Down List is available, but the selected Value is lost.From what was said in the other comment, should I be calling the Build Grid from somewhere other than Page_Load()?Once, you got the values you just need to send them to the database.
I worry it will still dont have your new value, but let`s try.
event is raised when a row's Update button is clicked, but before the Grid View control updates the row.
This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the update operation, whenever this event occurs.
Text; returns the the value of the "decription" which existed prior to typing in the new value. Thus every time I would click on Update, the data would get bound to the grid again after fetching the same data from the data base. I have a webpage that has a grid that allows select as well as edit. When I attempt to get to values in the rowupdating event I get the old values (which makes sense from your post). My question is that when I add the binding code inside If Not Page.
For example: if the value of the description was "Hello how are you" and then the users hits Edit and changes this value to " am fine", in the C# file, the value obtained in the string description is still "Hello how are you". Now I moved this binding after querying module into the (! Is Post Back and click edit on the grid I no longer see the grid.
