You might not believe I have faced a similar situation yesterday. What I
have done is when getting into the Datagrid edit  mode, I disable all the
validators set for adding rows and then enable it at the end of update  or
cancel click of the grid. You may also put it in gridbind or any other
method that you call after update/cancel. This would work.

Thanx for Giving me the Solution for
datagrid,But Suppose that there are 20 Validators
On that Page then I will have to write 20 Lines
Disabling the Validators and if I Disbale the
Validator at Page level then If there is any
Validations in the datagrid  During the Edit mode
Also wont Fire.Does Neone have a Compact Solution for
the same.

Well still to get enlightened with any other method for doing the same. By
the way could you figure out how to put validation  controls on a datagrid
during edit  mode?
