a Method” and choose Create updater Method as shown in Figure 4-25 .
Figure 4-25. Adding the Create Updater method

an In parameter for this method. add another parameter to serve as the selected row item.
Click on add parameter, and choose Create parameter in the name column.
Choose the direction as “in” (in the Direction column).
edit the parameter typeDescriptor in the type Descriptor column by clicking on the edit link
on the drop-down menu.
in the type Descriptor properties window, do the following:
set the name property to BusinessEntityID and the type name as System.Int32 .
select the identifier as Identifier1 .
set the pre-updater Field value to True . the pre-updater Field is a Boolean value that
