    Default Introduction to Group Editors

    To date, we've shown you how you can create Editors for fields in a FormView that edit one field at a time. Editors, however, can be built to edit any number of fields simultaneously. For example, you could open an Editor listing the street address, city, state, and country for a record when any of the editable fields is selected. An Editor that displays multiple fields is called a "Group Editor". Watch this video to learn more:

    Before you can dive into Group Editors, you may want to make sure you're comfortable with the FormView control and Editors. Check out these resources to learn more:
    • Introduction to the FormView Control: This gives an overview of the FormView control and a basic introduction to Editors and Editor Sets
    • Editors: Using a Dropdown Box: This discussion covers how to configure and populate a Dropdown Box Editor, allowing you to have one dropdown box control for editing multiple fields in your form.
    • Editors: Cascading Dropdown Boxes: A continuation of "Editors: Using a Dropdown Box", this thread goes into the details behind building cascading dropdown box Editors.
    • Switch Editors: Sometimes an Editor isn't necessary. Learn how to update logical fields without the need for an Editor.

    I have one question about 2 save buttons. I do not have any user(client users) who will be ready to click 2 times to save data in database. Is there any way to create complex forms easily that only allows one click save?(I mean rapid way)
