In order to familiarize myself with SharePoint development, I have created a custom web part to replace the default New, Edit, and Display forms of a custom list. Is there a way to use the already present SaveButton? This is what I have in SharePoint Designer.
<SharePoint:SaveButton runat="server" ControlMode="New" id="savebutton4"/>
I know there must be a way to connect this with my web part in Visual Studio 2010 on my server (maybe to my user control). If it helps, currently if I hit the save button, a blank item is created. So the button must be connected to something.
This project has been slow moving ever since I started it. In addition, if anyone has any good tutorial websites (or books) they use, please let me know.
I've shelved trying to use the provided submit buttons and have started creating my own in my user control. So far, there have been far less headaches. I'll continue tomorrow and update if that works.
Working Custom Save/Submit Button
I'd still like any other suggestions for online tutorials or any good books on Sharepoint/ASP.NET.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Aaron.
