FormView::UpdateItem Method

Updates the current record in the data source.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

virtual void UpdateItem(
	bool causesValidation


Type: System::Boolean

true to perform page validation when the method is called; otherwise false.


This method is called when the FormView control is not in edit mode.


The DataSourceView object associated with the FormView control is null.

When the FormView control is in edit mode, use the UpdateItem method to programmatically update the current record in the data source. This method is commonly used when you need to update the current record from outside of the FormView control, such as from a different control on the page.


The FormView control must be in edit mode when this method is called; otherwise, an HttpException is thrown.

To specify whether page validation is performed before the update operation, use the causesValidation parameter. Calling this method also raises the ItemUpdated and ItemUpdating events.

The following example demonstrates how to use the UpdateItem method to programmatically update the current record in a FormView control in the data source.
