Cancel = true; Some people seemed to think that it was due to the Custom Errors being set to "off" but that was clearly not the issue I was having as that was set to Remote Only on my dev box.
Basically I have a details view with product information in it, when the user clicks edit it goes into edit mode when I change any of the fields and click update it updates but with the old values.The Edit Item Template will contain Text Box controls by default.The Text Box controls provide basic data entry support for editing a record.An old friend of mine, Joe Shook, laughingly said, you should read what other people write too once in a while. Of course, he was right and naturally I do. I read almost everything I can get in my hands including technical books, blogs, and articles because I am surprised by the number of things I haven't mastered or that I still don't have a best practices sort of solution for.
