Updating database records in a datagrid - ASP.NET Data Grid Control

In a datagrid, I read that you cannot add validation controls to the textboxes, you want to update, because they are using BoundColumns. I want to add validation controls to the text boxes. What is the way around this? Thanks, EmJ....

    Default Updating database records in a datagrid

    In a datagrid, I read that you cannot add validation controls to the
    textboxes, you want to update, because they are using BoundColumns. I want
    to add validation controls to the text boxes. What is the way around this?

    Thanks,

    Default Re: Updating database records in a datagrid

    Use a template column instead of a bound column and nearly all the
    validations controls will work the same by putting them in the
    EditItemTemplate; the exception behing the client side validation of
    CustomValidator, which will be a little harder to use. Personally, in the
    latter case, I prefer to use only a server side validation.
