Asked On January 6, 2007 11:02 AM UTC


I have a gridDataBoundControl. The grid is sorted by date column, as shown in pic1. Please note the 2nd row with date 01/05/2007. Now i change this date to 01/02/2007, now as the grid is sorted by date, this row is supposed to move to the end as shown in pic2. But now i am getting an error as shown in pic2, here Asset_id, History_date, History_type are primary keys and below is the error i am getting in output window:

System.Data.ConstraintException: Column 'ASSET_ID, HISTORY_DATE, HISTORY_TYPE' is constrained to be unique. Value '-311795, 01/01/2007 12:00:00 AM, Trader' is already present.

Hi Anna,

This ConstraintException has to be handled by the underlying datasource of the grid(ie DataSet). Grid does not raise any events for this. Can you please double check with your DataTable/DataSet with "311795, 01/01/2007 12:00:00 AM" entry? If you want to catch this exception, you need to handle the Validating event of the grid. Please refer to the below KnowledgeBase article for more details.

What are the different validation events and event members? When are they triggered and how are they used?

Best Regards,
