Does anyone know why when event Form View1_Item Updating called there are actually no values.
If it's bound via Linq Data Source, Sql Data Source or Object Data Source I suggest you have a look at the Updating Event.
However, when I hit F5 (refresh), the Item Updating method is called again, and updates the database.
Probably something to do with my idiotic approach, but not sure. OK, playing around I realized that EVAL should be used instead of Bind, so that takes care of the extra field being passed back.
event when an Update button (a button with its Command Name property set to "Update") within the control is clicked, but before the Form View control updates the record.
