In gridview columns im displaying date and time, as below.
Im also doing sorting on these columns.
But the issue is during sorting its only sorting on "day (dd)"....
for example....these 3 values are from column, Date.
when I click for "Ascending" sort....it should get "17/03/2010 09:30:51" on the top (because of month 03) others have 02, but it doesnt, it gets in the above order, its just sort on day (dd).Below is my code for boundfield....
I have a auto column generated GridView in a page, I have a dynamically binded column in that gridview, when page loads then sorting option is available on all other columns except that dynamically created column.
I have a gridview control bound to a sqldatasource in c#. In the rowdatabound event I look at a value in a cell and use a function to evaluate the value and depending on that value I populate an added unbound column in my bound datagrid to show an excalmation point. I now want to sort by the column with the excalmation point.
whn i click edit button on grid before sorting on any column it is working properly...but once i click on any column for sorting n thn click on edit then the rows get sorted again and edit is set on some other row... plz help me...herez my code..
Situation: SQL database, Linq to SQL class a ASP.NET page with a LinqDataSource and a gridview. The table has a ID field, a date field and a Serialnr field. In my Grid I like to Page on the datefield but to sort on the serialnr field ( or a selectable other field). Is that possible? Standard the paging is always done on the sort field and when you select a different sort field the page jumps back to the first page., and paging is then done over that sorted column.
I am looking to sort a column on my gridview by simply clicking on the column rather than clicking on the column header. In the design I have been given, the column header will not be shown, and I need to be able to give the user to sort this column, by simply just clicking any where on the column.
Moderators Note: THIS ISSUE IS BIG FOR ME AND EVEN IF POSSIBLE, GET THE REPLY FROM THE DESIGNER OF GRIDVIEW. I have been looking for him for long. I am really fed up with reviewing a good lot of web pages on how we can possibly customize the gridview to enable sorting and paging. So many sites have listed out a lot of information and so many guidances. But the problem is that one works out fine and the other is a burden. I really feel bad about being given the job of customizing this kind of a gridview which has no user friendly approach to it. Also, this control is rendered without the pager links inside the <tfoot> tag. I have tried the Pear Pager in php. It is that good and easy to use and compared to that, the gridview in asp.net is the worst ever control i have ever tried so far.
1. i can use the images to indicate the sorting direction 2. I can have the custom pager like
<<Previous 1 2 3 .. 7 Next >>.
When i click the next when i am viewing the page at 3 , the pager links should change as
<<Previous 2 3 4 .. 7 Next >>
Kindly look into this type of requirement and firstly tell me whether this is possible with the gridview control. I would like this request even to be escalated to the designers of the gridview control also, so that Microsoft comes out with a reply THAT WORKS and not the kind of stuff like surfing through a lot of links and pages and finally wasting a lot of days precious time and still breaking the head with this useless control. I have spent a lot of time in searching for a perfect way. Not writing a code that is non-standard. I am really serious b'cos I have spent weeks in customizing this control. If I dont get a solid reply atleast now, I am going to generate all the output by HTML content by custom coding.
I have a Gridview, which I bind to a Dataview programtically. My Gridview has 11 columns. Sorting works fine as long as I do not remove any columns programtically.
In certain cases I remove 2 of the columns from the Gridview. Still not a problem. All the data is properly displayed however the problem occurs when I sort one of the columns. I sort the Dataview and bind to the Gridview again. Data from two of my columns just vanishes. Both of these columns are based on ItemTemplates. The columns are still displayed but just empty cells.
I have a 1-column gridview (and it must remain 1-column) which contains only text. My requirement is to prefix each row with an image followed by the text. The image may or may not be indented a bit, like an expanded child node in a tree.
I know a gridview renders as a table and I know I could put an image at the beginning of each row in a table (using a repeater, for example). But this is an existing app with a couple gridviews which need to be enhanced and I don't have the time to swap out the gridviews for repeaters.
i'm bindng data to gridview using bound field.one column of gridview is linkbutton.if the text is more than the cell width then the gridview width is increasing automatically.for ex if i have text like "microsoft asp.net forums" then it's displaying the whole text.but i need that text like "microsoft.....".how to display like this in gridview?
i want to access gridview collumn 2 and for each row replace the text that is there with a "*" because its a password fields so instead on show the pass hide it with * so its more or less this but... see comment line

I have an additional column called 'KPI %' in my gridview that calculates the percentage of two template fields and thus I cannot use the sortexpression on it. How can I sort the contents of the 'KPI %' column in ASC or DESC format?
I have a merged column of firstname and lastname by "Select firstname + lastname from table" but when it appears in the gridview the header text of the column is "Expr1000". How can I change the header text of that merged column?, and I want to change its text into "NAME".
I want if the header of a particular column contains a word "S", the header and row turns red. I used following code to make header red and it works fine. How to make it such that the rows also turn red if condition is met ? I cannot hardcode in columns since the Gridview is autogenerate colums as data structure keeps changing.
