How to switch a entire gridview1 into edit mode instead of clicking the edit button on each row?


I have a gridview1 that opens up via a sqldatasource and to edit each field, I have to manually click edit on each row.  Please suggest a way to switch the entire gridview1 into edit mode after the page opens.

 Thank you in advance,

 The following solution was build using the DataSet as a container and not SqlDataSource but this will also work in your scenario:

GridView All Rows Edit Mode

Allow editing of all rows simultaniously (without having to click edit/update for each row)?
I have an application where the user will be presented with perhaps 20 rows.  1 field of each row (the score) will need to be updated by the user.   Now with a gridview they would click on the first row's EDIT button then make the change for the Score field and then click update. Having to do this ~20 times would be somewhat annoying for the user :)  Is there any way I can get an Excel like behavior where the user can just click on the first row's Score field then enter the integer score and hit tab or down arrow or something and drop down to the next one and keep ...

Edit control is not loaded in edit mode
I have a problem that the dynamic data field edit control (such as TEXT_edit.ascx) is not loaded when in edit mode. Instead, the normal view control is loaded (such as Text.ascx). In debug I can determina the page mode is truly edit mode. Please help!

Edit Bound DataGrid row w/out entering Edit Mode???
Hi, I am not sure if this is possible or not, but I think it may well be... I have a databound grid, which, has just a single field which needs updating. Instead of making the user click edit to enter the edit mode just to change a single field in a single record, I wondered if it is possible to use a template field on the GridView with a textbox in. The user can then enter text for the record, in this case an Account Number, and click edit to update the record. I have written out the GridView and have a template field with the textbox in absolutely fine. Now I am trying to get the value...
