FormView.EditRowStyle Property

Gets a reference to the TableItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of the data row when a FormView control is in edit mode.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public TableItemStyle EditRowStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle
A reference to the TableItemStyle that represents the style of the data row when a FormView control is in edit mode.

Use the EditRowStyle property to control the appearance of the data row when a FormView control is in edit mode. When the FormView control is in edit mode, the data row displays the user-defined content specified by the EditItemTemplate property. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively using one of the following methods:

  • Place an attribute in the opening tag of the FormView control in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, EditRowStyle-ForeColor).

  • Nest an <EditRowStyle> element between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control.

The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, EditRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.

The following example demonstrates how to use the EditRowStyle property to specify a custom style for a data row when a FormView control is in edit mode.
