Formview itemupdating not firing

formview itemupdating not firing-41

I need to set this form up so you can not only insert, but edit a record as well. I'd rather not use a Form View because then I would have to revise my existing code, since you can't access controls inside a Form View directly.

Is there a way to databind the fields without using a Form View?

I have a Link Button in an Insert Item Template which when clicked, should display a hidden Drop Down List in the Insert Item Template.

However, it doesn't seem to be working, but it will say, change the text of a label outside the Formview when the Link Button is clicked.

NET that allow you to easily create websites for working with the CRUD operations of an entire data model that exists as either a Data Context (such as LINQ to SQL) or an Object Context (such as LINQ to Entities). NET provides several server controls that build on top of the features of Microsoft ADO. These controls simplify the development of data-driven websites.
