FormView programmatic binding for update, insert

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Frank Burleigh, Aug 3, 2007.

  1. I prefer to have more control over the plumbing in my apps, but the
    documentation for 2 assumes an "ObjectdataStore" approach.

    I have the usual data access and logic layers. Retrieving both a list
    and one record (for updates) is easy and working well. That's being
    done by my setting the DataSource for the FormView and calling the Bind
    method myself.

    Now, for updates (and later, inserts). Can the Bind method work from
    the form *to* the DataSource (not DataSourceID)? What if I'm writing
    the Update command event handler? Or would I need to get the values
    from the form (or the NewValues and OldValues collections), update the
    BLL, then call the BLL's method that finally makes the DAL do the update
    to the database server?

    Thanks very much.
