EntityDataSource.EnableUpdate Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether objects can be modified through the EntityDataSource control.

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

public bool EnableUpdate { get; set; }
<asp:EntityDataSource EnableUpdate="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if automatic update operations are enabled; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

Implements

IDynamicDataSource.EnableUpdate

Select cannot be set if the EnableUpdate property is set to true.

A false value assigned to the EnableUpdate property forces the CanUpdate property of the related EntityDataSourceView object to return false. When the EnableUpdate property is set to false, a NotSupportedException is raised if the data-bound control calls the ExecuteUpdate method on the EntityDataSourceView.

Setting the EnableUpdate property to true does not guarantee updatability.

If any of the conditions for updatability are not met and the EnableUpdate property is set to true, the EntityDataSource raises an exception.
