Rowupdating event not firing
Here you specify the Command Name for the respective linkbuttons which fires the Row_Editing event for "Edit" command, Row_Updating event for "Update" command and Row_Cancelling event for "Cancel" command. Acording to my experiences of the problem, I think you can solve the problem by trying these steps: 1) Since you've added a reqieured Validator in the Edit Template, have you confirmed that your Update Button's Command Name is "Update"?
Have you re-written your Grid View_Row Updating event?
It might be because the field is empty which is causing client side validations. Can any one suggest me how I can get rowupdating event to fire in such a condition? As you've insert a validation control, if fires the validation when you click on edit.
Perhaps your required Value will raise an error report.
