Asp onrowupdating not working
The typical scenario might be a list where you can toggle certain options or where you can fire an operation that otherwise updates the data that's underlying the grid.
I tend to use business objects in my applications so using the standard data controls doesn't work very well, nor would it really buy much in terms of abstraction.
the good old problem of getting the data from the row that is being currently edited within a Grid View. Accessing the "Controls": This method gets you access to the control in the Grid View, which might be useful based on what you are doing.
Obviously the simplest method is to use Data Key Names on the Grid View and then you should have the data in your Grid View Update Event Args as part of e. (In the following example, I cast to a Check Box as I know I have a checkbox at the col Index You Are Interested In - you should cast to whatever control you have in that column).
In my case this was happening because I was binding to a List of custom objects.
