Selecting the multiple rows in GridView and inserting the selected rows to another Gridview & Performing some operations on it

 Dear All,

I have become mad for solving this problem. Please Help me.

 I have a Gridview bound to a datasource. I inserted the CheckBox Control in Templet to select certain rows. Gridview1 contains some products id & name.

I want to insert the selected rows in to second Gridview  and in the second Gridview I need to add two more colums AdvicedQty & AcceptedQty(TextBox Cotrol).

The user will select few products in Gridview1 & clicks add which will be added another gridview then in second Gridview he enters the AdviceQty & AcceptedQty.

After entering the data he clicks SAVE buton. The data entered will be updated to another table called GRNDTL.


Please help me to solve this problem.


please guide me step by step if possible....  I use C#.


Thanks in advance

Hello Vinay,

You will need a way to store the records that have been selected from the first GridView while the user is working with them.  Here is an example from another forum post that describes how to have two DataGrid's, where a user selects records from one and they are transferred to the other DataGrid.  You should be able to adapt the idea to your GridViews:

Here is another post that talks about copying GridViewRow from one GridView to another:

In order to have the other extra fields, they can be added to the DataTable used in the first link I gave you as extra columns, and TextBox's bound to those columns so that data can be entered into them.  Then in your Save button, you would just traverse the contents of the DataTable that stores the data in the second copied DataGrid (or GridView in your case), and build SQL query to add that data to the database.

Hope this helps!

 Hello Mellamokb,

Thanks for the replay.

Say In first Gridview I have checkboxs in ItemTemplate. and the page contains A add button & Gridview2 in the Same page.

Please give me the code if I click on the  Add button I need to traverse through the Gridview1 & I want to insert the selected rows to Gridview2 & also the Gridview should contain 2 more columns for the user to enter some data(TextBoxControl). Also please make sure that everything happens in single Page & upon clicking the ADD button it should reflect in the gridview2.

Please do me the favour by providing me the CODE in C#. I will be very thankful to you.

 With Regards

Hi Vinay,

I have done my best to adapt the example I gave you to your situation.  You may need to change some field names and stuff to get it to work, but here is what I have:
