Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Inside Formview Edit Template

Jan 6, 2010

I keep getting a null reference when I try to access a listbox inside the EditItemTemplate of a formview. I check the mode before accessing the control (Formview1.CurrentMode) to make sure it is in edit mode and even set it manually to edit mode again! But formview1.findcontrol("blah") returns null. Formview1.EditItemTemplate does not have a FindControl method, not sure what else to try.

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Insert Template Fill Like Edit Item Template For All Fields

Mar 3, 2010

I have a formview with various templates set up for a database that has 255 columns. I need the insertitemtemplate to pre-fill values based upon a specific selection by the user (just like the edit item template) but when the template is switched to insertitemtemplate every text box is cleared. The idea is that a new entry is usually made by making minor changes to an existing entry. With 255 fields I don't want to require the user to enter every field when only three or four need to change.

Forms Data Controls :: FormView Edit And Item Template With Manual Datasource Not Returning?

Jan 12, 2011

I have a formview with both edititem template and item template as following:

EnableModelValidation="True" Width="90%"
onmodechanging="PFTFormView_ModeChanging" >
<tr><td class="style1">PFTId</td><td class="style3"><asp:Label ID="lblPFTId" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("PFTId") %>' /></td></tr>

<tr><td class="style1">Home</td><td><asp:TextBox ID="txtPFTHome" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("PFTHome") %>' Width="200px" /></td></tr>
</table><br />
<asp:LinkButton ID="UpdateButton" runat="server" CausesValidation="True"
CommandName="Update" Text="Update" />
<asp:LinkButton ID="UpdateCancelButton" runat="server"
CausesValidation="False" CommandName="Cancel" Text="Cancel" />
<tr><td>PFTId</td><td><asp:Label ID="lblPFTId" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("PFTId") %>' /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Last Name</td><td> <asp:Label ID="lblPFTLastName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("PFTLastName") %>' /></td></tr>

</table><br />
<asp:LinkButton ID="EditButton" runat="server" CausesValidation="False"
CommandName="Edit" Text="Edit" />

on my code behind, I have:

Sub PFTFormView_ItemUpdating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As FormViewUpdateEventArgs)
Dim PFTObj As New PFT
Dim PFTDST As New Data.DataSet
Dim newPFTLastName As String = DirectCast(PFTFormView.FindControl("txtPFTLastName"), TextBox).Text
Dim newPFTFirstName As String = DirectCast(PFTFormView.FindControl("txtPFTFirstName"), TextBox).Text
PFTObj.PFTLastName = newPFTLastName
PFTObj.PFTFirstName = newPFTFirstName
PFTObj.PFTHome = DirectCast(PFTFormView.FindControl("txtPFTHome"), TextBox).Text
If PFTObj.UpdatePFT(Session("PFTId")) Then
Me.lblErrorMessage.Text = "PFT Update Successfully"
Me.lblErrorMessage.Text = "PFT Update UnSuccessfully"
End If
PFTDST = Nothing
PFTObj = Nothing
end sub

The problem is:

PFTObj.PFTLastName = newPFTLastName
PFTObj.PFTFirstName = newPFTFirstName
PFTObj.PFTHome = DirectCast(PFTFormView.FindControl("txtPFTHome"), TextBox).Text

are not returning the updated value from the form.

Sep 13, 2010

I am trying to change the textboxes in the FormView insert template to dropdownlists but they keep setting the parameters to null. Here's what I have:


In Page_Load

CType(frmSurvey.FindControl("ddlYearOfQualification"), DropDownList).Items.Add(New ListItem("2010", "2010"))
CType(frmSurvey.FindControl("ddlYearOfQualification"), DropDownList).Items.Add(New ListItem("2009", "2009"))

And the insert fails with YearOfQualification as null. If I sue the standard textbox:

<asp:TextBox ID="YearOfQualificationTextBox" runat="server"
Text='<%# Bind("YearOfQualification") %>' />

C# - Set The One Template For Edit/insert And View In My Custom FormView Control

Aug 17, 2010

I would like to set the one template for edit/insert and view in my custom FormView control . But i got these odd exception Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.UI.LiteralControl' to type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Table'.

public class CustomFormView : FormView
[PersistenceMode(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty), TemplateContainer(typeof(FormView), BindingDirection.TwoWay)]
public IBindableTemplate FormTemplate { get; set; }
protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
if (FormTemplate != null)
if (CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Edit)
edited :
in the first step , I created the new user control and added a formview ("FV")
public partial class Form : UserControl
private IBindableTemplate _template = null;
TemplateContainer(typeof(FormView), System.ComponentModel.BindingDirection.TwoWay)]
public IBindableTemplate FormTemplate { set;get }
protected void Page_Init()
if (FormTemplate != null)
FV.InsertItemTemplate = FV.EditItemTemplate = FormTemplate;
if (!IsPostBack) FormTemplate.InstantiateIn(FV);

Now , I want to convert this user control to web control.

Forms Data Controls :: Populating DropDownList Inside A ListView Inside A FormView

Jan 16, 2010

I have the following (abbreviated) code:

<asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataKeyNames="ItemID" DataSourceID="LinqDataSource1">
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCategory" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Eval("Category") %>'
DataSource="<%# GetCategories() %>" DataTextField="Text" DataValueField="Value" />
<asp:ListView ID="lvParticipants" runat="server" DataSource='<%# Eval("Participants") %>' >
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCountry" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Eval("Country") %>'
DataSource="<%# GetCountries() %>" DataTextField="Text" DataValueField="Value" />

When the FormView is in Edit mode, ddlCategory is populated as expected by calling GetCategories(), which returns a List of categories. However, when the ListView is in Insert mode, ddlCountry is empty. I put a break point in GetCountries(), but it never gets called. If I change the name of the method, I get an error. So it recognizes the method at compile time, but does not call it at run time. I'm guessing this is an embedded binding issue of some kind, but I'm hoping someone can save me a lot of time by pointing out the solution.

C# - Filter Subcategory Dropdownlist Inside Editable Template Of Listview / Formview

Aug 20, 2010

In my listview object insert/edit template, I have two dropdownlists (category, subcategory). When a user selects a category (autopostback), I would like the subcategory dropdown to filter to only the those that match the categoryID from the category ddl. This seems to be complicated by the fact that it is in a listview object. I'm currently using a queryextender on the subcategory datasource, but I'm not sure how to apply the selectedvalue of the category to the queryextender. The subcategory just shows all items and is not filtered. How do you accomplish this?

Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist In The Edit Template

Aug 24, 2010

I have a transaction table with a field called product. There is a limited number of choices for product so I also have a product table. I am showing the transactions in a ListView with a dropdownlist for Product. The field Product can be blank (all works well then). The user can leave the field blank or they can choose from the dropdownlist. I am running into a problem with the dropdownlist in the Edit Template. No matter what the product is in the transaction file, I get a page error of "ddlEditProduct has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items". I have verified the product does exist in the product table.

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlEditProduct" runat="server"
SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Product") %>' >
<asp:ListItem Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>
