Cannot use same sql datasource for formview - working for gridview

Hello, I have problem that is confusing me...

I am using a gridview on page1 that when selected navigates to page2 queried by the ID. On page2 i have a gridview which uses a sqldatasource using the query parameter of the ID taken from Page1. I have this working, but when i try to replace the gridview with a formview (with the same sqldatasource) i get the following error:

'System.Data.DataRowView' does not contain a property with the name 'publicationID'

Why can i not use the same sqldatasource in the formview??

 Kind regards,

Hi gcp2985 ,


'System.Data.DataRowView' does not contain a property with the name 'publicationID'

This means that "Container.DataItem" in your line of code is evaluating to an object of type "System.Data.DataRowView" which does not have a property called 'publicationID'.

So please double check the underlying datasource to see whether there is one filed called 'publicationID' .

The problem seems to be that the SQL datasouurce you are using does not have  the property(column, field) named 'publicationID'  but You have tried to bind that field in the form view. Try checking if the field is there in the sqldatasource or not, or if it should be in the form view or not

Gridview linking to formview but NOT using formview.pageindex = gridview.selectedindex

I don't want to use formview.pageindex = gridview.selectedindex (ie using selectedIndexchanged) because if a row is deleted in my source table (both Gridview and Formview have the same datasource)  then my selected index will not match up properly to my formview.pageindex. So what I want to do is open Formview based on the primary key of the table. - ie when I click the GridView, the formview is then opened based on the key of the value in the GridView selection. Can anyone point me in the right dire...

Custom Datasource Controls Vs. Object Datasource Controls

I only use the API and the methods offered by it to interact with the data.For all the operations on the data, I have methods that I can call from the API (viz. Create(), Delete(), Modify() etc.). For connecting the data to my frontend data controls (viz. GridView, DropDownList etc.) I can use Object Datasource Control. I also read some articles about Custom Datasource controls. Now, I am having a d...
