postponing changes to the database while using gridview-sqldatasoruce

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Aamir Ghanchi, Oct 2, 2007.


    Hi, above is the link to a question posted by soomeone in this
    usergroup an year ago, but it never got answered. I have exactly the
    same question.
    Is their a way for a (non paged) gridview-sqldatasource duo to hold
    off any changes to the actual database till the user clicks a save
    button (outside of the gridview). I would love to use the edit/delete
    functionality gridview provides, but not to make the changes right
    away to the database when the user clicks the Update or Delete
    linkbuttons in the EditItemTemplate. Any response will be appreciated.

    trival, as this is builtin.

    use a dataset (stored in session) to bind the gridview to. then on save,
    apply the dataset changes. extra points for using a typed dataset.
