Submit Form to insert data into SQL and display with a gridview (edit as well) below how do i insert data into sql table?

I have an page that has a simple form where a user can submit customers information. Below that I have a gridview which displays customer information submited by the user who is logged in. I have the gridview displaying, sorting and updating as I want however I can't figure out how to bind a button click to insert data into the customer table and then have it refresh the gridview when they submit. Here is the basic code; (I am using AJAX for a calendar when a user wants to edit an appointment date) 

<div class="leftBar">
    <div align=center>
    Submit New Customer</div><br />
      <table><tr><td>First Name</td><td>Last Name</td></tr>
  <tr><td><asp:TextBox ID="cfirst_name" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td>
  <td><asp:TextBox ID="clast_name" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br /></td></tr>
  <tr><td>Cell Phone </td><td>Other Phone</td></tr>
  <tr><td><asp:TextBox ID="ccell_phone" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td>
  <td><asp:TextBox ID="cother_phone" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td></tr>  
  <tr><td>Email</td><td>Appt. Date</td></tr>
  <tr><td><asp:TextBox ID="cemail" runat="server" Height="22px" Width="128px"></asp:TextBox></td>

Please give me some direction here. I am of course new to .net and visual studio. I have experience with HTML and Asp classic.

This uses a formview to submit the info and displays the submitted info in a gridview.

        No data returned
If your gridview doesn't refresh with the new data you will have to add an event in the code behind that rebinds the gridview:     
Private Sub FormView1_ItemInserted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormViewInsertedEventArgs) Handles FormView1.ItemInserted GridView1.DataBind() End Sub

Thank you! Works great. I have another simple question. how do you pass hidden values to the insert statement? Can you give me an example? I want something like this from HTML;

<input type="hidden" id="submit_date" value="&now()&" name="submitdate" />

Basically using ASP classic and HTML this will pass on submit and then I would bind it like;

submit_date = request.form("submitdate")

now I would use that variable in my insert statment;

sql_insert = "INSERT into customer_entry submit_date VALUES ( ' "&submit_date&" ' )

So how can this be acheived with Sorry for the basic question but I appreciate your help.

Yes there is a hidden field control for and the insert would be very similar to how I mention above with the exception of changing the control id.

Okay so something like;


<asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" value=Today()/>

 ? I guess I am just confused on how to input the right format for Todays date in the hidden field and then how do I reference it for the Insert statement?

I would think by the ID, INSERT into customers_entry date_submited VALUES (@hiddenField1)

Does this look right? TY!!

4/26/2009 3:44:18 AM

Is it always going to be the current date?  If so, just set the field in SQL to default to getDate() and you won't have to fool around with it on the front end.  If not, you can set it in the when you modify the datasource in the GUI.  You will need to create an insert parameter on the datasource and make reference to it as you have shown above.

Thank you! That should work well. I still need to know how to pass variables over though. For example when a user is logged in I want to set a session variable to their cus_id which is a primary identity key in their info table. And then insert that value into another table so I can link them later. So something like

session("cus_id") = Rs("cus_id")

INSERT into customer_entry
(' "&session("cus_id")&" ')

I guess my question is can I insert session variables the same way I would in asp classic? Is there a way to make session variables easier in Visual Studio 2008?

Please forgive me for being a beginner. I am a quick learner and will pick this up quickly once I figure out the main differences.

One last question if you have the time; I want to create a login page to access a member portion of the site. I notice that VS 2008 has a login control however I want the usernames and passwords from a seperate table I already have and if they are logged in correctly I want to redirect them to another page which checks that they are logged in before loading it. I've done this in asp classic using session variables to check they are logged in before loading the page like;


If request.form("username") <> "" Then
  If request.form("password") <> "" Then
username = replace(request.form("username"), "'", "")
username = replace(request.form("username"), ";", "")
password = replace(request.form("password"), "'", "")
username = replace(request.form("username"), ";","")
SQL_select = "Select * from users WHERE username=' "&username&" ' AND password=' "&password&" ' ;
set rs=dataconn.execute(sql_select)  
If not rs.eof Then
session("userloggedin") = True
response.write("Invalid Login")
End If
Set sql_select = NOTHING
Set rs = NOTHING
username = ""
password = ""

If not session("userloggedin") Then
End If
