Devexpress rowupdating cancel

After binding your data to your datasource (and that datasource to the grid), you send a command to the datasource asking it for data to populate the grid.

To help us thoroughly understand the Dev Express Grid View, I am going to use a playful analogy.

Just imagine that the ASPx Grid View is an actor, the datasource is its agent and the database is a producer.

Use the following members to alter/manipulate data: Add a Command column to the view’s Columns collection and specify which commands can be used by end-users, so that they can manipulate data.

Let’s say you have an empty grid that you wish to populate with data from your company’s database.

Just like an actor presents his portrayal of the script on stage, the ASPx Grid View is a visual representation of data on our screens.

And just like actors use an agent via whom they communicate, get acting gigs and so on, the ASPx Grid View has its own hustler in the form of its datasource.

Now, you have a populated grid and are free to view, edit and filter through it.
