Keeping in Control of Events
At work, I'm having an issue with losing control over events in my code. One big issue I'm having is recursion in the DataRow.RowChanged event. In this case, I'm trying to update the database, during every whenever e.Action == DataRowAction.Changed. This also means having a call to DataRow.AcceptChanges() which raises another DataRowAction.Changed.
