Line 82:                 cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@repass", repass.Text);
Line 83:                 cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@imagelink", imagelink);
Line 84:                 cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

               String update = "update StdRegistration_db set Name= @name,ParentsName= @parentsname,DOB= @DOB,Gender=@Gender,ContactsNo= @contacts ,EmailID= @email,Address=address @,Hobbies= @activity,Password= @password,Re_Password= @repass ,Profile_IMG= @imagelink where  Name='" + Session["Name"].ToString() + "'";
               SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(update, con);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@name", name.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@parentsname", parentsname.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DOB", DOB.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Gender", Gender);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@contacts", contacts.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@email", email.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@address", address.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@activity", activity);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@password", password.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@repass", repass.Text);
               cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@imagelink", imagelink);

I do not think you need the ‘@‘ characters in the parameter names. Check the documentation to be sure.
Member 14083059 20-Feb-19 4:49am
sir i write the same query its work well for inserting

My mistake, but you did not explain which statement the error message referred to.

Having looked at the query again you appear to be storing passwords in plain text in your database. That is very bad practice. See these articles to understand why and what to do about it

Why are you using nvarchar(max) for the Gender column? Even if you want to be as inclusive as Facebook, and provide 71 options for the user to choose from, none of them will need 1 billion characters to describe them.

And assuming DOB is the user's date of birth, you should be storing that as a date, not a string. Not only will the proper data type take up less room, it will also avoid invalid or ambiguous dates from entering your database.

Way too much nvarchar(max)

In your query you have
Address=address @,
That should read
Whilst I commend you for using a parameterised query, why oh why do you go and ruin it by introducing a SQL Injection risk with
where  Name='" + Session["Name"].ToString() + "'";
That should be something like
where  Name=@SessionName";
and you will need
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@sessionname", Session["Name"].ToString());

i have used above changes now it shows this error @CHill60

The parameterized query '(@name nvarchar(13),@parentsname nvarchar(4000),@DOB nvarchar(10' expects the parameter '@Gender', which was not supplied.
CHill60 20-Feb-19 5:45am
But you have the line of code
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Gender", Gender);
still there?
MadMyche 20-Feb-19 6:23am
This could be caused if Gender is null.
CHill60 20-Feb-19 7:57am
Good call!
Member 14083059 20-Feb-19 9:34am
i know sir and i used it for not null Gender
this code : protected void rdb1_CheckedChanged1(object sender, EventArgs e)
Gender = "Male";
protected void rdb2_CheckedChanged1(object sender, EventArgs e)
Gender = "Female";
public string Gender
but it still shows same error above.
MadMyche 20-Feb-19 9:46am
And if neither of those button events fire what is the value?
Maybe you should try
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Gender", Gender ?? "not checked");
Member 14083059 20-Feb-19 9:58am
Thank You sir now it is work well!!
