| Code elaboration -- which direction to take?|
Ok, I went back and found an old post on here about doing a sort of "batch" update to a database. ChrisRickard was kind enough to get me started.
Anyway, I put the project on hold for a bit, but I'm ready to resume it.
In my app, I'll have a GridView with four fields: ID, TeamName, PointsScored, and PointsAllowed, and the final two columns will be editable. So it would look something like this:
|Team Name||Points Scored||Points Allowed|
Well, the PointsFor and PointsAgainst column will be text boxes that I want to update all at once. Ergo, a batch insert.
Well, The query itself would look something like this:
odbCommand = new OleDbCommand("INSERT INTO MY_TABLE(TEAM,PF,PA) VALUES(?,?,?)", odbConn);
odbAdapter.InsertCommand = odbCommand;
And, it appears that I need to create a parameter list, like this:
odbCommand.Parameters.Add("TEAM", OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "TEAM");
odbCommand.Parameters.Add("PF", OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "PF");
odbCommand.Parameters.Add("PA",OleDbType.VarChar, 50, "PA");
I get this part of it, and I understand what's going on, but my question is:
How do I get the data from each row in the GridView, and do the batch insert?
Do I just iterate through each row in the grid view, and do the inserts essentially one at a time, or what?
I'm at a bit of a loss here. I'll go back and check the practice code I tried...
