Gridview rowupdating does not fire
Sorry i know i'm posting a lot of comments on my own question.Storing datatable in View State is not a good practice as it increases the size of your page and reduces the performance, also View State can be deciphered on the client side, so the Data Table is not secure.This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as checking the results of the update operation, whenever this event occurs.A Grid View Updated Event Args object is passed to the event-handling method, which enables you to determine the number of rows affected and any exceptions that might have occurred. On Row Deleting - can call registered event handlers" I couldnt figure out how to continue this thread, but the issues in it are related so i'm including it as a reference.In my custom grid View control I cannot raise the Row Updated event.
event is raised when a row's Update button is clicked, but before the Grid View control updates the row.To cancel the update operation, set the collections, if necessary, before the values are passed to the data source.A common way to use these collections is to HTML-encode the values supplied by the user before they are stored in the data source. I have tried to add an event handler to the Row Updated event of my custom control but it is not called.I have tried to override On Row Updated in my custom control, but the breakpoint never gets hit.
