Gets or sets the data-entry mode to which the FormView control returns after an update, insert, or cancel operation.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Use the property to specify whether the FormView control returns to edit, insert, or read-only mode after an update, insert, or cancel operation is performed. By default, the FormView control returns to read-only mode; however, you can keep the FormView control in edit or insert mode by setting this property to the appropriate value. 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.
This property is commonly used when the FormView control has a single purpose, such as only to insert or edit records.
