Hello,

I am currently using a datalist to update the database with a textbox control.
The problem is that when I am pressing "Edit" and entering values in the textbox and when trying to update the database, the database is not getting updated with the entered value.

Could someone please let me know the exact procedure to update the database with the value from the textbox?

Thanks,
Rohith.

>the database is not getting updated with the entered value.

Maybe that particular code/event is not fired. Show us your code please.

Hi,
here is the code used to edit the fields.

<EditItemTemplate>
       <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1">  
       <td>
       <tr>   <td>
           <asp:Label ID="lbEmp" runat="server" Text="EmpId"></asp:Label>  <asp:TextBox ID="a" runat="server" 
                 Text='<%# Bind("EmpId") %>'  
                 ForeColor="Blue" BorderStyle="none" readonly="true" 
                 BorderWidth="0px" >
    </asp:TextBox></td>
        <td>
       
           <asp:Label ID="lbName" runat="server" Text="EmpName"></asp:Label><asp:TextBox ID="b" runat="server" 
                AutoPostBack="false" Text='<%#Bind("EmpName") %>'  
                 ForeColor="Blue" BorderStyle="none"  
                 BorderWidth="0px" ></asp:TextBox></td>
       <td>
           <asp:Label ID="lbSal" runat="server" Text="EmpSalary"></asp:Label><asp:TextBox ID="c" runat="server" 
                AutoPostBack="false" Text='<%#Bind("EmpSalary") %>'  
                 ForeColor="Blue" BorderStyle="none"
                 BorderWidth="0px" ></asp:TextBox></td></tr></td>
   </table>   <asp:linkButton ID="update"  runat="server" 
             Text="Update"  
                    style="height: 26px" CommandName="Update" />
                    <asp:LinkButton Text="Cancel" CommandName="Cancel" 
                      Runat="server" ID="cancel" />
   </EditItemTemplate>

Code behind:

protected void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListCommandEventArgs e) 
    {
        
        StringBuilder strSql = new StringBuilder(string.Empty);
        int yourValue = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["id"]);
        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection();
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();
        TextBox empnme = new TextBox();
        TextBox empsal = new TextBox();
        myConnection.ConnectionString = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["csRohith1"].ConnectionString;
        foreach(DataListItem data in databilling.Items)
        {
            
            empnme = (TextBox)data.FindControl("b");
             empsal = (TextBox)data.FindControl("c");
             string empname = empnme.Text;
            string  empsalary = empsal.Text;
             string strUpdate =
                        "Update Emp set EmpName = '" + empname + "'," + " EmpSalary = '" + empsalary + "'" +
                        " WHERE EmpId ='" + yourValue + "'" + ";";
             strSql.Append(strUpdate);
        }
        
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
        cmd.CommandText = strSql.ToString();
        cmd.Connection = myConnection;
        myConnection.Open();

        cmd.ExecuteReader();
        
        myConnection.Close();
        databilling.EditItemIndex = -1;
        load();
       
        

    }

Thanks,
Rohith

Edited by __avd: Added [code] tags. Encase your code in: [code] and [/code] tags.

Try this and report here,

protected void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListCommandEventArgs e) 
    {
        TextBox a=(TextBox)e.Item.FindControl("a"); 
        TextBox b=(TextBox)e.Item.FindControl("b");
        TextBox c=(TextBox)e.Item.FindControl("c");
        Response.Write(a.Text + " " + b.Text  +  " " + c.Text); 
     }

Thanks,

I think querystring might be a problem.

    {
        int yourValue = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["id"]);
        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection();
        myConnection.ConnectionString = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["csRohith1"].ConnectionString;
        myConnection.Open();
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select EmpId,EmpName,EmpSalary from Emp", myConnection);
        dataenv.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader();

        dataenv.DataBind();
        myConnection.Close();
    }

I have even tried this. The problem is i could not get the new values entered in the text boxes. empname and empsalary are storing the old values not the new text which is entered. Is there any way to trigger the textchanged event.
