how to make dropdownlist (templatefield) on datagrid editable just when edit button clicked..?

 I have a dropdownlist as a templatefield on a gridview using ASP.NET 2005 (VB).. I want this dropdownlist's enabled property is set false when the grid is loaded, but I want it becomes enabled when I click Edit button on the grid (Edit button is a commandfield)..

 How do I do it? If anyone gets the informations, please let me know..

Or is there a way of showing the value on the grid by Label templatefield first, and when Edit button is click, show the Dropdownlist templatefield, and the colums where the Label templatefield is placed set false for the Visible property?

 Thank you very much.

Change your TemplateField into this:

      <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Title") %>'></asp:Label>
      <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
       DataTextField="Title" DataValueField="Title">
and put this in code-behind:
 Protected Sub GridView1_RowUpdating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdateEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowUpdating
  Dim ddl As DropDownList = CType(GridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).FindControl("DropDownList1"), DropDownList)
  e.NewValues("Title") = ddl.SelectedValue
 End Sub
and just change "Title" with your column name (in all 4 places).

Thank you very much for your answers..

I've found the answer. I mean, I just use a Label for the ItemTemplate on the templateField, and a DropdownList for the EditItemTemplate..

That's all my problem..Big Smile I don't have very deep knowledge in ASP.NET, so I apologize if sometimes my questions are very simple ones..

Thank you very much again..

Return in a Edit Item Template text box to cause the Edit Command button to click in a DataGrid
Hello Everyone I have a DataGrid with ItemTemplates.  What the client wants is to be able to hit return in the edit item template's text box, and as a result have the Edit Command Save button clicked. Doing a search I came across several discussions of this topic that indicated that one could do this using JavaScript, but I'm unclear about how to go about this; I'm guessing that I can trap the key press in the box and cause a postback if it's the return key but don't know what event I'm looking for. Suggestions?   Thanks in advance! I am assuming that there's only one save b...

Cant get new/edited values from cells when editing a datagrid ...
I'm having some trouble with editing the data in a datagrid.   When i go into edit mode and change to values, they revert to the original ones as soon as the update command is run.  My update command runs a stored proc on a sql server database and i have checked that it is working by giving it fixed strings as the parameters.  It works fine and updates the values as required.   The problem is, when i try to feed in the cell values to the stored proc, it just saves the original values that were in the cells and not the values that i updated.   Why ...

Problem getting a Datagrid to allow users to edit it...(in line editing)
Hi, In my DNN custom module I have three panels with various controls on them. If a user clicks the "edit database" makes all these panels disappear and one appear. That panel has a datagrid on it.
