I read many articles on the web but almost all of them demonstrated the use of the Form View control with either Sql Data Source or Object Data Source that is why in this article I will demonstrate that how you can use the Form View control with the Data Set as the data source.
Remember, there’s a script file in the control that should open automatically (if it doesn’t, click the gray arrow on the upper-right corner of the control or right-click the control and choose Show Smart Tag), check all the available check boxes, shown in Figure 13-4. The links in the left column enable you to edit, delete, and select the relevant genres.
If you don’t see the Planet Wrox database listed here or you get an error, refer to the preceding chapter, which explains how to set up the database.
The form can edit, insert or display readonly records depending on the mode property assigned to the control.
The following control declaration can be added to an ASP.
To get the datakey value of the selected record of the Details View control, we need to set the Data Key Names property of the Details View control. " Select Command="SELECT * FROM Sample" Update Command="Update SAMPLE SET [email protected],[email protected] Where [email protected]" Delete Command="Delete SAMPLE Where [email protected]" Insert Command="Insert SAMPLE(Code, Name,description) VALUES(@Code,@Name,@description)" runat="server"/ When the page index of the Details View control is changed, the Page Index Changed event is fired.
This property should be assigned with the Primary Key of the database table. We cannot retrieve the datakey values as the data is not yet bound to the details View control.
While the List View control provides editing support, it requires a bit more work from the page developer to get it going.
The reason is because the List View is defined by templates whereas the Grid View and Details View are defined by fields.
An integer value of the language code or Locale ID of a language pack installed and provisioned in the CRM organization used to localize labels. Set to "false" results in ommission of the anchor links. On Post Back The Crm Entity Form View will not re-databind if this value is false.
If a user has selected values from option set dropdown fields and a control in the page causes a Post Back, re-databinding will clear the user selected value and load the values and select the default option according to the data and metadata in CRM.
Namely, each field in the Grid View or Details View is rendered in its editing interface; Bound Fields display a Text Box control while Check Box Fields display an enabled checkbox.
