member ChangeMode :

One of the FormViewMode enumeration values.

Use the ChangeMode method to programmatically switch the FormView control between edit, insert, and read-only modes. This method also updates the CurrentMode property with the specified mode. The following table lists the different mode values.




The FormView control is in edit mode, which allows the user to update the values of a record.


The FormView control is in insert mode, which allows the user to add a new record to the data source.


The FormView control is in read-only mode, which is the normal display mode.


The ModeChanged and ModeChanging events are not raised when this method is called.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ChangeMode method to return the FormView control to read-only mode whenever the user navigates to another record.
