DataGrid - TemplateColumn

Post by Adrian SALANT » Wed, 16 Oct 2002 23:29:52


I have the following aspx fragment:

<asp:DataGrid ID="grid" runat=server

Visible="True" Text='<%# Server.HtmlEncode (DataBinder.Eval

Runat=server />

    TextBox box1 =
    dr["invoice_number"] = box1.Text;
    TextBox box2 =
    dr["invoice_date"] = DateTime.Parse(box2.Text);
    Session["Invoice"] = dataSetInvoices1;

What am I missing here? Is there a pre-step to get the datagrid to accept
the user's text and other control input, or do I need a different API than
