Forms Data Controls :: Creating Dynamic Text Boxes?
Jan 1, 2010
I'm trying to make a form where the text boxes and titles for each box are created dynamically based on how many array values there are. I have tried a repeater but am a little unclear on how I can get the texbox to bind to one area of and the title to bind to another. This is what I have so far:
...and this is the code-behind with an associated array, arr1:
// Bind Array to Repeater
rep1.DataSource = arr1;
This works and adds values where container.dataitem is but how to I make it add one set of array values there and another set of array values where the *x* is?
Using C# and SQL as the database.I have a page with a gridview and some text boxes and drop down list boxes. A user selects a record from the grid view I query the database and fill the text boxes and drop down list boxes.
Some fields get updated periodincally thus there is no data in those fields in the database until some time.
A strange thing happens.When filling data some text boxes gets a one tab spacing .
So, how do I, at runtime, add these fields to my page?
Secondly, This form, upon submittal, creates a configuration file on my server currently in the format of
[FIELD1] FieldOne.Value [/FIELD1]
[FIELD2] FieldTwo.Value [/FIELD2]
[FIELD3] FieldThree.Value [/FIELD3]
With those fields, it's rather easy, as the form has static controls that I'm looking up and sending to my file.
How would I add the dynamic controls to the file as well? Obviously, if they've selected to add 10 fields, I don't want 40 other fields of blank/nothing (since they can choose to add up to fifty). How would I iterate only adding the fields that they've chosen?
I have to create some code for my website which will bring data from a database into my specific boxes. I have a map on my site which on click of a hotspot, a page will pop up showing a smaller map and the data underneath it. The data will be in text boxes. How do I get the data from the database into these text boxes?
I have a gridview in my aspx form. I have used template column & in that created a table. In the table of the Item template , I am displaying some fields. My requirement is that when I click on any row, the correspoding data should be placed in proper text boxes. Each row in itemtemplate has a unique id called UserId.
i have a grid view and check box in it. and there are 5 columns in it. user name, first name, lastname city and ph no. and 5 text boxes... and a edit button NOW when i check any checkbox and press EDIT button i want the entries in grid view show be entered into text boxes.
Dim objDatabase As New database objDatabase.OpenSQLConnection() Dim objAdapter As SqlDataAdapter Dim objDataset As New DataSet Dim objAdapter1 As SqlDataAdapter Dim objDataset1 As New DataSet Dim objAdapter2 As SqlDataAdapter Dim objDataset2 As New DataSet
i am using above code to generate dynamicaly textbox into grid view. I have 3 fix coloumns from database which i fetch at start of code.
Then i assigned it to datatable. in datatable according to Listbox item count i added more coloumn as per listbox items count.
then that datatable i i gave as datasourse to gridview. Now i inserted dynamicaly textbox to gridview in respective coloumn.
But after refreshing page all textboxes disappears....
I need to develop a custom data-bound control which will contain, few text-boxes, drop-down lists, labels, and other standard web-server controls. And, I want to be able to load this control from a web page on button click. When the user enters any data to any of its child controls, i should be able to save, and also retrieve when the data-bound control is loaded again. Also, the data in the child control should retain their value on postback. What approach should i follow?
Really getting better with VS, but I've mostly been displaying data. I'm on a new project and now and I have a lot of data entry forms to create. I created a form to enter data into an access db and got it working. I thought it would be cool to add an edit button that fired a gridview to load on the same page, under my original forms, so that that they could load up the data and edit or delete mistakes. But when I try to update the gridview, it also tries to post the original forms (text boxes), which fail because there is no data in them, and I get an error.
What is the proper way to handle this in asp.net? I'm sure this is kind of a common issue. I've done some searching, but the search terms, like forms and gridview, are kind of generic and I'm not coming up with anything useful. I just need a more experienced person to point me in the right direction and I'll get it figured out.
I have a FormView that is loaded with a records from my DB. Some of the fields may be blank or null. I am trying to check the value of some of the text boxes to verify that the user has updated the fields prior to allowing a DB update from the Edit Template.
I can not seem to get the correct syntax on the if statment to check the value of the text box....
Example: we have different articles in a database like cars, jewelery, boats. The data related to these articles is different in the tables. I have to show that data in a textboxes and let the user change those data and update. I can do the update and reading the data from database. But the problems is for each item the no.of columns and rows will differ.
My task is I need to get the data according to the use selection in the table with textboxes. I dont know which container (gridview, formview or etc) will suites for my requirement. send me any sample code or any tutorial related to this.
Note: showing the data in a table should be a constraint. Because I should show data row wise (each row contains 3 textboxes and 3 labels (DB table column names))
i have a gridview which is populated from a stores proc using pivot tables. The column are created dynamically apart from a total column which is created as a template field. the gridview looks like below:
CPW EE Foh H3G IND O2 ORG P4U T-M TSC VIR VOD Total
70 0 0 12 0 16 18 7 11 1 2 8 145
i need to add a hyperlink to each gridview cell and when that cell is clicked pass the header text through the querystring to another page. I can access the cells value ok and pass that through but i cannot seem to access the cells column header text. when i response.write out a count of the gridview.columns it brings back 2 which is the template fields but not the dynamic fields i have tried this on the rowdatbound, rowcreated, page_load and page_unload. the count should be 12 its like it cannot find the dynamic columns at all. ?
here is my code for populating the gridview
and here is my gridview:
i am also moving the total column in this code
and calculating my total in this code and adding my link to the total colum (which works fine)
now i just need to somehow add a link to the other cells and somehow get the value of the header text for that cell clicked.
I need to get access to the page index of the gridview so I can correctly get some data from a coresponding array to set the cell's contol properties correctly. Below is what I've got so far. The ExcelObject is a class that houses both the data read in from an sutomer submitted excel file and a matching 2 dimensional array of characteristics that I use in this case to set the CssClass property. My problem is that when I enable paging for the gridview I don't get the proper datasource row index when the data is read by the databinder.eval; what I'm getting is the current row of the gridview being generated.
