NET 2.0 most of the examples and tutorials deal with setting the Data Source ID, which buys you a lot of automation that you may not even appreciate unless you’ve done this the old fashioned way.

Details View Change Mode: private void Handle Cancel() private void Handle Edit() private bool Handle Insert Callback(int affected Rows, Exception ex) private void Handle New() private bool Handle Update Callback(int affected Rows, Exception ex) With Change Mode you are choosing that the control switch to one of it's modes.

Do I need something additional to fire Item Updated?
