So, the method in the code behind page would look like something like this: However, decrypting the data using a templatefield tag posed another problem, extracting new values from the ‘Text Box1’ control.
This will be solved when calling the Item Updating event.
If I don't put in the Mode Changing event implementation I get an exception: "The Details View 'dvw Work Item' fired event Mode Changing which wasn't handled." I do intend on adding other custom code into this method because certain actions need to happen when you start editing or inserting.
To prevent users from changing the name of the planet, you can develop a Item Updating event receiver.
So I might hit update and get the insert mode, or vice versa.
When in either of these modes, I have to press cancel twice to return to readonly mode.....pretty frustrating. I have the same problem which I have been fighting with all day and can't work out.
The reason why item-updating event receiver fires twice in case of document libraries is because of check-in/checkout.
Also it can fire twice in case of doc library/list if we are updating the current item values with in this item updating event. https:// @Robert about the before properties, yes your right they would be the same regardless....
