Custom Control Not Rendering After Event?

Jan 26, 2010

I am just playing with custom controls, and have one built that looks like so:


I'm pretty sure its the Rendering / CreateChildren process that I'm not doing right. Problem is I cant find a good example that shows how to rerender your usercontrol when something needs updating.

Custom Server Controls :: Custom Control Image Not Rendering In Visual Studio Design Mode

Apr 25, 2010

I have a simple HttpHandler that generates a dynamic image based on query string parameters and a custom web control that renders an image tag pointing to the handler as its 'src' attribute. All works fine when run in the web server, but at design timethe control displays as the "missing image" icon (red x in a box). The handler is registered in the web.config with a ".ashx" extension. The RenderContents method in the control looks like this:

output.AddAttribute("src", ResolveUrl(string.Format("~/Sparklines.SparkHandler.ashx?stype=pm&w={0}&h={1}&sv={2}&ev={3}&cv={4}&sc={5}&ec={6}&mc={7}&gs={8}",
Width.IsEmpty ? 100 : Width.Value,
Height.IsEmpty ? 15 : Height.Value,
caleStart, ScaleEnd, CurrentValue,
ColorUtils.ColorString(StartColor, true),

Custom Control Rendering In Designer With Object Reference Error

Jan 2, 2011

I created a custom server control. The control works perfectly when added into a project. The issue I have though, is that in the designer - it shows the error --> "Error creating control - MyControl1 Object Reference not set to an instance of an object" The error is because I am using this code to load startup scripts

Dim pg As Page = HttpContext.Current.Handler

if i comment it out then the designer does not throw the object reference error so I know this is where the problem is. So here is my question: How can I get the designer to ignore the HttpContext.Current.Handler object for rendering puroposes?

Mar 31, 2010

I currently have a file "abc.htm" in my Custom Server Control Project and it's Build Action is set to Embedded Resource.Now in the RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter output) method, I need to read that file and render it on the website.I am trying the following but it's to no avail:

protected override void RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter output)
var providersURL = Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(typeof (OpenIDSel), "OpenIDSelector.Providers.htm");
var fi = new FileInfo(providersURL); // <- exception here
//the remaining code is to possibly render the file

This is an example of how the providersURL is:


FileInfo is throwing System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

Custom Server Controls :: Dynamic User Control Rendering - How To Do It

Jun 8, 2010

I am using two user controls in my page. The controls are loaded dynamically one at a time. I'm just referencing the user controls in the page and loading them dynamically using 'LoadControl()'. Everything is working fine till now and the user can switch the controls one another.

Here the issue I found is eventhough the controls are working as expected and the data is visible, the rendered HTML contains only the first loaded user control's markup.

Even if the current control displayed is 'usercontrol2', the source shows 'usercontrol1' markup. How can I force the page to render 'usercontrol2' markup and remove 'usercontrol1' markup while loading'usercontrol2'?

C# - When To Fire A Custom Control Event

Jan 21, 2010

I am creating a custom control. Let's say I'm reinventing the wheel and creating a custom Button control that derives from the UserControl class(only for example)

Well, it of course has a Click event handler. Now my problem is, when do I call this event handler? I know it happens sometime between the Pages OnLoad and OnLoadComplete, but I'm not quite sure what event I can hookup to so that the Click event is raised at the same time as other control events.

Adding Event To Custom Control?

Jul 10, 2010

<asp:CustomValidator runat="server" id="custPrimeCheck"
ErrorMessage="Invalid Prime Number" />

PrimeNumberCheck is the method name which is passed as parameter, same way I want to pass method in my custom TextBox for CustomValidator to run on server side.

Web Forms :: Changing Custom User Control And Event Handling

Jul 29, 2010

I have a custom ascx user control on my page that includes a dropdownlist. There is an onSelectedIndexChanged event handler that is connected to this dropdownlist. The first time the user selects a value, the page does a postback and the logic executes correctly. However, if the user then goes to change their selection, the event handler does not get triggered.

Force An Event Handler To Fire For A Custom Control On Every Postback?

Feb 11, 2011

I've created a UserControl that is dynamically placed onto my page during the Init event. It populates and works great, but I'm left scratching my head at how to retrieve data from it during a postback.

It's effectively a multipick combobox that is manipulated entirely using clientside JavaScript (I'm using jQuery heavily). Inside the control container element, I render an empty DIV element that contains all of the selected items. As the user selects items, I generate DIVs within that container DIV that includes some markup. Of interest to me on the server side are the contents of a couple of INPUT fields.

After selecting an item, the rendered HTML looks something like:


I may be completely off track and this may actually be impossible (or a stupid idea). The only alternative I can think of is to emit actual ASP.NET controls and hook the built-in event handlers.

C# - How To Handle The Click Event Of A Button In A Custom ITemplate Control

Feb 28, 2011

I've created a custom control in ASP.NET for showing a pop-up message box. In my MessageBox class, I have a Content property as ITemplate like the following:

public ITemplate Content { get; set; }

I used my custom control in my page like this:

<cc1:MessageBox ID="MessageBox1" runat="server">
<asp:Button Text="Save" runat="server" ID="B_Save" />

Even I set the the Content property's TemplateInstance to Single, I still can't have access to the Button control.

All I want to do is to handle the click event of the button. When I assign an event handler to the button control and run the project, it throws a NullReferenceException.

Write A Custom Rendering Template For The DisplayForm?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm trying to write a custom rendering template for use in the DisplayForm of a list whose fields include Title, HeaderImageUrl, Body. I've got the following so far:

<SharePoint:RenderingTemplate ID="NewsListForm" runat="server">
<h1><SharePoint:FieldValue FieldName="Title" runat="server"/></h1>
<SharePoint:UrlField FieldName="HeaderImageUrl" runat="server"></SharePoint:UrlField>
<SharePoint:RichTextField FieldName="Body" runat="server" />

The HeaderImageUrl field is configured to be an Image URL, but when I use the UrlField control, it renders a link.

I was thinking there might be a way to grab field values and put them in attributes, so something like this:

<asp:Image ImageUrl="<% FieldValue["HeaderImageUrl"] %>" runat="server"/>

If this kind of thing isn't possible, then is there another control in Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls that would render an image from a URL?

Custom Server Controls :: Trigger Click Event In Composite Control?

May 10, 2010

My CompositeControl creates dinamically several RadioButtonLists according to the DataSource information. These controls are added to the Controls list and rendered in CreateChildControls event.

I need to create a LinkButton that clear a specific RadioButtonList selection and do a postback, to load the DataSource information again (some selections changes the data that need to be loaded from the database). For each RadioButtonList, I've put a LinkButton and assigned the Click Event to a method inside the same CompositeControl, to do the RadioButtonList cleaning.

Unfortunatelly, the LinkButton doesn't trigger the Click Event. In HTML code, the link has the "onclick" attribute setted with the event, but when clicked, nothing happens.
