Detecting the "Update" button was pressed in a detailsview "Edit Mode"

I have a detailsview that has editing turned on.  So, of course when the user clicks edit, the buttons displayed are are changed to "Update" and "Cancel".   I need to perform additional steps once the update is sent. For instance, I'm going to have it email out changes on top of updating the database.  How do I detect in my code behind that this particular button was pressed.

 I've done several searches for a solution here and elsewhere, but nothing seems to come up to explaine what I'm looking for.  So, if anyone can point me in the right direction as to where I can find info on this, or explain how to do it, I would greatly appreciate it!

Precedence of "where" ("of", "is", "will")?
Nobody on #perl6 today could answer this one. Is: Str | Int where { $_ } the same as: (Str | Int) where { $_ } or: Str | (Int where { $_ }) ?

Detecting if "Back Button" and "Menu Button" Exist [Edit]
Hi: I am developing an app that is going to run on both iOS and Android. The iOS version will have a software back button and menu button to go back to previous page and show a menu, but I need to detect if hardware back and menu button (or the soft back button and menu that Android provides in tablets) exist and if it does hide these buttons that does not need to be there (I need the real state). I have looked at IFMXVirtualKeyboardService but it does not provide any way of detecting the hardware keys. Is t here a Firemonkey way of detecting the existence of hardware back and menu button? ...

FormView Control, and "Click" event of "Update" button
Hi Folks,I have a question relating to attaching code to the "Click" event of the default "Update" button within the EditTemplate of the FormView control.Without coding the "Click" event, the database update of the modified record works fine.However, as soon as I add some code to the event, as follows:protected void UpdateButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e){Response.Redirect("Default.aspx");}... the database update is not done.Do I need to do some manual coding to do the update via the ObjectDataSource in this case?If so, can anyone advise what? ...

"Before Update" and "After Update Of" triggers
Hi all, In a row-level before update trigger I set the value of a column ("SomeColumn) to some value (the value is only changed by this trigger, not by the update statement itself) Now I notice that the row-level trigger defined as "after update of SomeColumn" doesn't fire when I change the value of this column in the before update trigger. It does fire (as expected) when the change comes from the update statement itself) Questions: - Is this expected behaviour? - how can I uniformly trigger a change of a column wether set by the update statement or by...

No "Update" or "Delete"!
Hi,I am using the dataset wizard to connect to a SQL database. The wizard creates my dataset and generates  "Select" and "Insert" statements but no "Update" or "delete". What can be the reason? By the way, this happens only on certain tables and not on others. I just can't figure out what the difference between these tables is. And, they all have a primary key. Actually I found this error before, running the configuration for the table again gives me that, sometimes I had to delete the table and start again. Hope this helps, let me...

Get "Mail"/"Get "News" / "Write"/"Post" buttons?
If the "Get Mail" button text changed to "Get News", and "Write" changed to "Post" when TB's in the news-reading mode, it would save me and probably others from constantly forgetting to make the change before proceeding. :-) Or is there an extension to do this which I don't know about?

"Me" is better than "You"
Yes I know, strings are frozen. But let me talk about it, I really can't get through the idea of a PC talkin to me. I consider my PC as an extension of myself, not a dumb companion who addresses Me as You. Yes there are times when I get angry with Him while I work and get wrong calculations etc.., but it really is my fault, Me using wrong istructions and eventually wanting to find someone else to blame, but it's Me. And yes, I consider Thunderbird my mail program, reading my mail on my PC as Me. So I personally like to have Me in the header bar as a compact address ...
