Forms Data Controls :: Detailsview Change To Edit Mode?
Mar 28, 2010
I am trying to handle the detailsview programmatically but I don't know what I am doing wrong. My details view control isn't going into edit mode. My code for my gridview's select button properly loads the data into the detailsview but once the detailsview renders clicking on "Edit" doesn't switch the detailsview contol into edit mode.
This code draws the information from my database and loads the information into the dataview:
This code is in my dvTeamDetails_ItemCommand sub and the beep works:
I have a page where I have a tab container and four tabs. the problem is on the first tab "manage quote request" I have a Gridview with the quote request general informatin listed and have a template field created with a link button to databind to the formview quote details. the porblem comes in when after I click on the select linkbutton. the Formview loads right. Then Whe I try to click on the edit linkbuttin in the form view I have to click it twice to change the mode to edit.
I have a SQL DB with just 2 fields, ID and TEXT.What i was trying to do, was placing a Detailsview in EDIT MODE, then selecting from the DB like SELEC TOP 1 Text FROM DB.Then i placed a Ajax HTML Editor in the template field.How can i, keep the HTML Editor on the page, and use it for INSERT and/OR EDITING ?e.g.: on the first time the user opens the site management page, it will be blank, so it will show the HTML with no text on it. but the bottom button will be UPDATE and CANCEL. So when he enters the TEXT he clicks on UPDATE.
I've got a DatalList control on a page that I intend on using for Editing Items. I've added a button control into the Item Template with CommandName="Edit", and when click the button on the item, the page Posts Back and continues to display the ItemTemplate for that item.
I have a DetailsView within an UpdatePanel. I programmatically put the DetailsView into edit mode, change the fields then call the UpdateItem method which causes the "must be in edit mode to update a record" exception. Am I missing something blindingly obvious?
My gridview can have several hundred records, and therefore users will have to scroll down to view and edit some of them. The problem is when they want to edit a record that they have to scroll down to, when the page enters edit mode it stays at the top of the page, instead of focusing on the current record, how can I change it to scroll to the correct record in edit mode?
For ASP.NET, I'm using a DetailsView for insert and edit of a record. For edit mode I don't want to display the primary key field because it should not be changed. For insert mode, I want to display the primary key field because it doesn't exist and the user can specify it via a DropDownList that insures they will pick an unique value. A TemplateField is used in the DetailsView markup for the primary key field (hence the DropDownList for insert mode).
My problem is that I cannot get the primary key field to not display for edit mode and to display for insert mode. In the markup I have:
With the TemplateField Visible="True", the HeaderText="name" always displays which I don't want for edit mode. With the TemplateField Visible="False", the field never displays which I don't want for insert mode.How can I achieve the display behavior I want for insert verses edit mode. I'm fine with changing some property programmatically rather than relying an a pure markup approach,
How do I set the value of a field in a detailsview to the selectedvalue of a gridview on the same page? I am also trying to set today date as value of another field in the detailsview as well as UserID. I wrote the following codebehind for the date setting:
TextBox tb = (TextBox)DetailsView2.FindControl("TextBoxCreDate"); tb.Text=System.DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString(); TextBoxCreDate is a template field in my DetailsView.
Unfortunately, I get a Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Error message.
I am trying to "reset" the DetailsView in View1 to ReadOnly mode if the user changes the index in RadioButtonList. Currently, it is working correctly for the first pass and second pass, but fails at the third pass. I want it to just cycle through the DetailsVIewdatabound event, but the cycle breaks on the third pass and I'm not sure why?
I have a Gridview that handles double clicks. On a double click, the selected row goes into Edit mode, which means in my case that edit controls (textboxes, checkboxes and dropdown lists) become visible, and display controls (labels) become invisible. On Page_Load the values in edit controls get saved. Now my question is this: how can I get out of the edit mode if I don't want to save? Can I e.g. handle Escape key? BTW, I use C#.
I guess I'm not sure exactly how or where to do what I need.
First off - here's what I need - - when the user clicks on the NEW button in the detailsView, I have the User.Identity.name captured in a variable and I need to set one of the textboxes (InsertItemTemplate) named 'txtNew' to that name.
I've tried using the ModeChanging (and ModeChanged) event: Dim dv As TextBox = CType(DetailsView1.FindControl("txtNew"), TextBox) If (e.NewMode = DetailsViewMode.Insert) Then ....
However, no matter what, 'dv' always shows as 'Nothing', so I can't change the text of it.
I currently have a page that is used to insert or update records in a DetailsView using an EntityDataSource control. Insert is working perfectly. However, Updating is not. I have the default view set to insert. In PageLoad, I have:
However, the DetailsView always defaults to the first record in the table rather than the record with ID that is equal to the ID querystring parameter. I am not sure how to make it select the correct record. From spending a while researching, it looks like I might need to use a QueryExtender control on the Entity DataSource, but haven't been able to figure out how to configure the QueryExtender correctly.
There is also perhaps some sort of datasource="stuff", databind() that I could toss in there but again.. not really sure how to proceed.
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
