I have a search page, detailspage with formview and formview has multiple templates (item, edit, insert).
At the master page (I use vb as code), I have a menu with menuitems (for example "New Contact"), what I want is when I click on the New Contact menu item, I get redirected to the page with the formview on it and the mode of the formview is set to insert.
This is what i have using VS and VB: formview that is bound to a sqldatasource. In the formview i set up three panels and the visibilty is controlled by three buttons. I want to be able to click the edit link button and have the panel that is visible in readonly mode be the one visible in editmode
I have created a FormView whose defaultmode = "insert". When loaded the FormView displays the InsertItemTemplate. At the top of the page is a DropDownList used to select Clients. I have added a list Item to the DropDownList with value = "0" and text= "Select Client" option. So the Page is in Insert Mode. SO FAR EVERYTHING IS AS EXPECTED.
When I select a Client from the DropDownList, the page remains in Insert Mode (Don't understand why? ) Could it be the default Mode setting? So I added the following vb code.
Protected Sub ddlSelectClient_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ddlSelectClient.SelectedIndexChanged
If ddlSelectClient.Text <> "(Select Client)" Then If FormView1.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Insert Then FormView1.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.Edit) End If End If End Sub
So after an existing Client is selected, the FormView Mode should be changed to EDIT. AND INDEED THE EDIT ITEM TEMPLATE IS DISPLAYED.
Ah but life is not so simple (after all this is a Microsoft Application). So I enter data in some fields and click the [Update] Button.
Then I get the following message:
FormView 'FormView1' must be in edit mode to update a record.
THe FormView displays the Edit Template, the Update and Cancel Buttons are displayed. All this should mean I am in edit mode.
Just call me FrankenSoft !@#$%^^& or is it MicroStein?
Oh by the way I'm using Linq to SQL data sourcess. Should I be? I'm having a lot of problems with the FormView using Linq.
Formview1 datasource ID is SQLTest. When I click New on the form and go into insertmode, is there an easy way to auto file textboxID to the value of the NextIDNumber field ( field 9) from SQLTest datasource?
there are 2 pages (SummaryGridviewPage.aspx and FormviewPage.aspx) there are insert, item and update templates in the FormviewPage 1st case - there is no problem to insert new record, select and update action in the FormviewPage
2nd case - However, there is problem when i select a record in GV and direct to FormviewPage for edit this code is added in Formviewpage to open the record at readonly mode, no problem
Private Sub RF_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init If Session("RecordID") <> "" Then ' to check New or Old record SqlDataSourceRF.SelectParameters.Item("New_ID").DefaultValue = Session("RecordID") FormViewProject.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.ReadOnly) End If End Sub
however, no record if go further from readonly to edit mode then Code is added to the Edit button
Protected Sub BtnEdit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) FormViewProject.ChangeMode(FormViewMode.Edit) SqlDataSourceRF.SelectParameters.Item("New_ID").DefaultValue = Session("RecordID") FormViewProject.DataBind() End Sub
Now edit problem is solved but when go back to the 1st case (new record, and then edit) Now new record can be inserted, and then show it in readonly mode. but then try to go to edit mode, no record show i think BtnEdit_Click code is conflicted with the built-in "Edit" command Could anyone show me some info how formview retrieve specific record in a proper way?
So, I'm trying to use form view in insert mode on a dedicated aspx page. So when a user clicks "Add New" from the main GridView page, it will take the user to an Insert.aspx page that will be in Insert mode ready to collect information.
Here's what I have so far, and all I get is a blank page when I try to run it.
I have a FormView at the very bottom of the page in insert/edit mode. When I click insert/update button, the whole page reload and the pointer does not keep within the Formview but go to the very top of the page far away from the desired FormView.
What can I do here to prevent cursor going outside the Formview ? Is it I can use update panel ? What and where I should use the tags ? Or there are other better way ?
I have a combobox that is used as a control for Formview, so when the user selects a name from the combobox the data in formview displays in edit mode. However, some if the data that is displayed in formview needs to be empty. For example if the Date is being pulled in, it needs to be empty or null in edit mode.
I've been spending two days on this. My page formview is in a tab container and I need it to update, insert and display data. Insert and display are ok as long as the default mode is Insert. The problem here is edit mode, it's able to get values from the db(oracle) and display them in edit mode, but when I click save, any values I typed out on the textboxes do not get captured. When I call on my db update class, it just sends old db values. Here is the process: formview shows data selected from gridview, then an update button is clicked to edit the data. there is also a SAVE button to send updated data to db. Example: description textbox = "test", then I type out a different value, and in debug mode, the textbox.text still shows "test" after clicking save.
I'm having a hard time solving what should (I think) be an easy problem. I have a formview defaulting to Editmode. One of my data fields is a binary image. How can I change the editItem template to allow a user to upload a new image into the binary image field?
The following code successfully displays a record in a FormView and sets the FormView mode to 'Edit' when the user clicks on a LinkButton within a Repeater, however the record is not Updated. If I don't change the .SelectCommand and call .DataBind, I'm able to update the first record that is displayed. Naturally that's a moot point because the idea is to be able to update the record that the user selects in the Repeater.Because of the design of the FormView and Repeater, the record *must* be updated via the FormView. Updating the record via the Repeater is not an option.
In web config file I have add key values specified.
In the formview I have labels on edit , item and insert mode that I want to display all the time by getting those values from web config. I'm able to do that with no problem but when I change the modes between edit to insert or item view, I lose those label values until I hit the "select" twice from the Gridview, those values re-appear. Below is the snippet of the code. What do I need to do to retain the category values all the time?
I am simply trying to get a querystring value and pass it to a textbox in a formview with the default view set to edit mode.
Protected Sub fv_Detach_Engine_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles fv_Detach_Engine.DataBound If fv_Detach_Engine.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Edit Then Dim tbx_IDProfileAccount As TextBox = TryCast(fv_Detach_Engine.FindControl("tbx_IDProfileAccount"), TextBox) If tbx_IDProfileAccount Is Nothing Then tbx_IDProfileAccount.Text = Request.QueryString("IDProfileAccount") End If End If End Sub
