Represents the different data-entry modes of a System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView control.


public enum FormViewMode


The System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormViewMode enumeration is used to represent the data-entry modes of a System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView control. To determine the current mode of the control, use the FormView.CurrentMode property. After an insert or update operation, the System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView control returns to the mode specified by the FormView.DefaultMode property. By default, the control returns to read-only mode. You can specify an alternate mode to return to by setting the FormView.DefaultMode property. To change modes programmatically, use the FormView.ChangeMode(FormViewMode) method. When the System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormView control changes modes, the events in the following table are raised.
