    I am trying to build a Datagrid whoose edit column contains an edit and
    delte image button. However I want to be able to determine via another
    column whether or not the delete button should be presented or not.

    I have a column called "Submitted" and if that column = "Yes" then they
    CAN NOT delete the row, otherwise they can.

    I need to somehow do an if statement or something that will allow me to
    only show the delete button some of the time.

    I know I cannot do an IF loop within my <%# %> block or atleast I
    cannot figure out how to.

    I tried creating a function within the <%# %> but I cannot figure out
    how to pass the "DataGridCommandEventArgs" into the function which I
    would need to determine which row I am in.

    Any help much aprreciated.

  2. just use the Visible property of the delete button

    ....Visible='<%# Eval("canDelete") %>'

    if canDelete = true then the button will be visible, if not, then the button
    will be invisible :)

    hope it helps
