Blank Gridview Cell Populates "&nbsp" Into Textbox?

I've noticed that when i populate textboxes from a selected row in a gridview that if the field is blank it displays "" in the textbox.

Here is the solution I came up with. I check each cell before adding it to the textbox.

I get the feeling that I'm either doing something wrong to have this problem in the first place or that there is a better way to handle this.

protected void GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
//// Get the currently selected row using the SelectedRow property.
GridViewRow row = GridView1.SelectedRow;
// Load data from selected row into textboxes
if (row.Cells[1].Text.Trim() != "")
txtEditCust_ID.Text = row.Cells[1].Text.Trim();

Why does "" appear in the database table and not in aLabel.Text on the form?

What is the easiest way toprevent from being inserted into the table from a GridView SelectedRow null cell value?

Forms Data Controls :: What Is The Value Of A Blank Cell In A Gridview
I am trying to check if a cell in a gridview's selected row is blank. Nothing seems to be working. See the different options I've tried below. When I check an empty cell's text.length is tells me 6 ?!? Is that a tab and a space?


Or should I say what is the value of a blank cell in a gridview?

C# - Prevent Empty Gridview Data From Populating "&nbsp;" Into Textbox?
I have this code that populates a textbox based on a cell in the selected row of a gridview

protected void GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
txtComment.Text = row.Cells[14].Text.Trim();

It displays in the txtComment textbox if Cell[14] has no data. Is there a way to prevent the from appearing when there is no data in the cell of the selected row?

I tried this and it didn't work

if (row.Cells[14].Text.Trim().Length > 1)
txtComment.Text = row.Cells[14].Text.Trim();
txtComment.Text = row.Cells[14].Text = "";

This worked

if (row.Cells[14].Text.Trim()!="")
txtComment.Text = row.Cells[14].Text.Trim();
txtComment.Text = row.Cells[14].Text = "";

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="STD<br/>ID">
<ItemStyle BackColor="LightBlue" />
<div style="font-size:xx-small; overflow:hidden;">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtStandard" EnableViewState="true" Height="10" Font-Size="XX-Small" Width="50" Text='<%# bind("STANDARD_ID") %>' runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

TargetControlID="txtStandard" ServiceMethod="GetCompletionList"
MinimumPrefixLength="1" CompletionInterval="1000"
EnableCaching="true" CompletionSetCount="20">

I want to save updated values to database, But when I try to access values using string strs = ((TextBox)TwoHeadedGridView1.Rows[0].FindControl("txtStandard")).Text;

It always returns me the blank value for all the rows, Same thing happens for dropdown list it returns me originally selected value i.e. value selected at the time of writing dropdown box, there are no duplicate ids present on my asp form , This is my first interaction with customizing gridview, I want to somehow make it run,

Web Forms :: Textbox Database Lookup Populates Other Textboxes?
I am using VB code. I currently have a dropdownlist populated with Item numbers from a database. When the user selects item number, it retreives other field inforrmation from the table and populates other textboxes on the form. This all works fine. The problem is that the user wants to be able to type the item number and then when they tab off the field for it to retreive the other field infomation to populate the textboxes. The user has to enter lots of item numbers and does not want to search a dropdownlist. I would like to have a textbox where when the user starts typing the item number it displays possible choices to select from or the user can type in the full item number. Just like how when you type in the Google search box on their main page. my existing code which is below:

Forms Data Controls :: GridView Insert Control Parameter Null Value And Nbsp?
Basically, the user Selects a row on GV that executes an Insert into a table the GV cell values of the selected row.

The SQL field data type is varchar. If the GV field is Null, the Insert adds the value to the SQL field. How do I keep the @nbsp; from being displayed in the cell of a data control when it is called at a later time? Do I add some more asp to my control parameter? do Iadd some vb code behind? Here are some relevant code snippets of existing code.

Forms Data Controls :: Validate A Dynamically Generated Textbox In A Gridview's Cell?
I have a gridview each line has 4 linkbuttons - Edit , Update , Cancel , Delete and a few columns with data...For example TeamName and TeamEmail, and a hidden column that contains a validator (for ease of validating controls that are found on the same row , same naming container)

When Edit button is Clicked , the specific line goes into editing mode , Texboxes are created for TeamName and for TeamEmail .

I create dinamically (code behind ) a new textbox that reads the value from the TeamEmail textbox , i give it a new id (let's say "Email") , add that email to the controltovalidate property of my validator , and call the validate() method of the validator.

Everything works fine when i modify the value in a worng format , the validator err message appears , when i modify the TeamEmail value to a good email format , the validator property isvalid becomes true , and the update is running , but my textbox is empty :( updating the TeamEmail value to null.

This is some bad code but hope you understand what i meant :

This is my html coed of my gridview


This is the code that manages the validation:

C# - MVC - Blank Model Not Returning Blank Data
I have a form which a user can fill in x times with the data they want too. The form is posted to the following Action.

public ActionResult Manage(ProductOptionModel DataToAdd)
if (!ModelState.IsValid)
return View(DataToAdd);
var ProdServ = new ProductService();
if (DataToAdd.ID != 0)
//Edit Mode.
DataToAdd = ProdServ.EditProductOption(DataToAdd);
ViewData["Message"] = "Option Changes Made";
DataToAdd = ProdServ.AddProductOption(DataToAdd);
ViewData["Message"] = "New Option Added";
var RetModel = new ProductOptionModel() {ProductID = DataToAdd.ProductID};
return View(RetModel);

So at the bottom I blank the model (Leaving just the required field) and then return to the view. However the view holds the data from the previously submitted form. I have debugged the code and checked that the RetModel variable is empty.

Multiply 2 Datagrid Cell Values And Show In Textbox.text?
Using vb 2008 and 2.5 I have a datagrid that is showing a value of say 6.5 and 7.2 on different rows. I am wondering what code is needed to multiply these two and the show the result in a read-only textbox. If i use this example it seems to throw errors: textbox1.text = datagridview1.rows(0).cells(0).value * datagridview1.rows(1).cells(0).value I am probably doing something very silly here so wondering if you can . Does it need to be in a certain format to appear in a text box?
