With a little bit of research, a lot bit of patience, and some help from the internet community, I was able to solve all my issues, and pretty elegantly at that. You can’t do something like Dim name As Hyper Link Dim inv As Text Box name = CType(Grid View1. in an actual post, just email me or comment somewhere and we’ll talk about it.
To enhance this process, be sure to include your Grid View in an AJAX Update Panel. Everything should be sorted out when the “Update” link is pressed. Finally, to pull your hidden value that you’ve dubbed a Data Key in the Grid View’s subroutine.After working with Data Grids so efficiently, I was scared that Grid Views were going to be a million times more complex. I suppose my eyes got big when I saw all the new properties and methods, and wanted to try them all out. Most articles I found were for hardcoded datasources (especially on MSDN, ugh) and didn’t really help me much, so this post will be referring to Grid Views with dynamically bound datasources.
