This example shows how to edit and update records in a Grid View in ASP. This example is helpful in situations where an administrator needs to edit several records from the database.For demonstration I have created a database (named Database.mdf) in which we have a table named tbl_Employee.To make the data entry easy you decide to use HTML5 date input type.A Bound Field of a Grid View always uses a plain Text Box (type = "text") to use HTML5 date input type you need to add a Template Field to the Grid View.HTML5 provides several new input types such as email, URL and Date.While using Date input type a textbox is displayed as a date-picker by browsers such as Chrome and Opera.
Select a Scheme from the left side such as Professional and click Apply and OK.4. Uncheck the Check Box from the left side (Auto-generate fields).8.This article is one in a series of articles on ASP. Some of these limitations were exhibited in the Updating Basics article when attempting to update a product's Category.In short, you had to modify the product's value from 1 to 4.Likewise, the simplified interface lacks any input validation that may be necessary when editing required fields or fields that must appear in a particular format (like dates or numbers).Fortunately, the Grid View's editing interface can be customized to include validation controls and alternative user interface elements.After you've created a layout with a data control of your choice and eventually bound them to some datasource, you almost always want to get that data back out of them(and why wouldn't you, its your data).One thing you'll learn about developing webpages is that its like petting a porcupine (yikes).Unfortunately these dictionaries are only filled out if you are bound to a datasource control :(.So that means when you bind to some raw collection and hook up to the Data Source property then call databind, if you try to handle the delete or update events these dictionaries are going to be empty.The Edit Item Template of this Template Field should have a Text Box whose Text Mode property is set to Date.This will cause the Grid View to render a Text Box of type Date.
