Forms Data Controls :: REpeater How To Extract Html Tags And Show Contents

Feb 18, 2011

Repeater data rendering problem

im using Visual Web Developer Express2005 and language: VB

Example Image of my forum thread that im working:

i encircled in color red the part where i assign the 'content' as you can see EXAMPLE of code in my repeater that populate a <td>(inserting data FROM my database) from my TableField('content')


the part that i encircled in the image above was the data on my tableField named--> 'content'.

The idea was to show not the whole content but to show Only some part of it. example is to show only the 1st 300chars or 100 words.

i tried this code which shows the fist 1-100 chars. [Code]....

Problem is the data i stored in the TableField('content') has other html tagsExample my Tablefield('content') has the following data.

<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-CA"><span style="font-size: x-small">All hands worked in the preparation..............

When i use the code .tostring.tosubstring(1, 100) it shows: <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-CA"><span style="font-size: x-small">All hands worked in the preparation..................

instead of starting at: All hands worked in the preparation.......Is there a way that i could extract first the html tags then use the
.string.tosubstring(1, 100) to make it work.I use the code below temporarily to generate the 'content' as showed in the image above. i limit the height of the lable to 100px which does the trick. but i know its not a good method thats why im trying to look for other methods.

<asp:Label runat="server" Height="100PX" Width="615px"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Content")%></asp:Label>

Forms Data Controls :: Show / Hide A Div In A Nested Repeater By Clicking On A Button Inside Parent Repeater?

Nov 12, 2010

what changed do I need to make to my code for it to achieve what I'm after.

At the moment I am getting a "cannot cast to type" error message with the below code.

I have also tried calling the ItemDataBound method in with the parent repeater tags and had no errors but when I clicked on the button it would just move back to the top of the page and would not hide or show any data. Also I have made the div style to none but the first record still shows its child but the rest don't.

Show More / Less Without Stripping Html Tags In JavaScript / JQuery

Jan 6, 2011

I want to implement readmore/less feature. i.e I will be having html content and I am going to show first few characters from that content and there will be a read more link in front of it. I am currently using this code :

var txtToHide= input.substring(length);
var textToShow= input.substring(0, length);
var html = textToShow+ '<span class="readmore"> </span>'
+ ('<span class="readmore">' + txtToHide+ '</span>');
html = html + '<a id="read-more" title="More" href="#">More</a>';

Above input is the input string and length is the length of string to be displayed initially. There is an issue with this code, suppose if I want to strip 20 characters from this string:

"Hello <a href='#'>test</a> output", the html tags are coming between and it will mess up the page if strip it partially. What I want here is that if html tags are falling between the range it should cover the full tag i.e I need the output here to be "Hello <a href='#'>test</a>" . How can I do this?

Forms Data Controls :: Repeater ItemTemplate - If Eval(field)=0 Then HTML Else HTML

Feb 20, 2010

The following seems reasonable, but it returns an error:

<asp:Repeater ID="RepeaterF" runat="server" DataSourceID="DSF" >
If Eval("Item_Batch") = 0 Then
%><tr><td></td><td colspan="2"></td><td></td></tr><%
Else %>........

Error: "Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control."

I am finding it difficult to accept that the whole Repeater approach has any benefits over just creating a loop in code, iterating through a recordset, and building a html table into a variable, then dumping it to the page. This repeater is spawning pages of code and objects, and surely this is all using up server resources.

Web Forms :: Create Image (screen Cap) Of Specific A Tags Contents?

May 4, 2010

I am trying to get the pixel color of a mouse click event. (meaning when the user clicks on the page I need to identify what color he just clicked on.) I believe the best way to go about this is to create a screen cap of the browser contents then use image.GetPixel sending the x,y locations. The only part of this that I am having issues with is creating the screen cap at "click-time." It would be easiest for calculations if i could get a screen cap of the entire contents of the browser, but I could also work with being able to screen cap a specific div element by ID.

I have experimented with this using an actual image on the page and i can get the correct values however, the page will not be an image so i need to create the screen cap...

If you have any information about how to do this or have a better way to get the color of the pixel clicked on by a user.

C# - Recursively Extract Dynamically Created Controls In A Repeater, Part II?

Dec 16, 2010

To be fair, this is a part two follow up to Using C# to recursively get a collection of controls from a controlcollection. - and rather than heap another question onto the old one, I created a new one. Here is the code that I'm using:

private void GetControlList<T>(ControlCollection controlCollection, ref List<T> resultCollection) where T : Control
foreach (Control control in controlCollection) [code]...

and is involked like this when the form is submitted

List<CheckBox> checkboxes = new List<CheckBox>();
GetControlList(RepeaterCapability.Controls, ref checkboxes);

I don't get any results when I clearly added several during the repeater OnItemDataBound event.

Forms Data Controls :: Show Image In Repeater If Allowed?

Jan 20, 2011

On my main page I have a repeater that pulls the last 3 entries from the database. I want to be able to add pictures to the database and show those in the repeater, but only if the column is set to true. I can't seem to get past the part about have the image show only if its supposed to.

Here is the code for my page:


Code Behind:




So my questions are: Is the repeater the correct control to use?

How do I only show the image control if the column "NewsImgShow" is true?

Forms Data Controls :: Show Hyperlink On Condition In Repeater ItemTemplate

Nov 2, 2010

I have a Repeater displaying some data that doesn't do what I'd like to see. If a certain condition is met (ex: parent.NumOfChildren > 0) I would like a hyperlink shown. Here is what I have so far:

<asp:Repeater ID="parents" runat="server" >
<asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl='<%# "Children.aspx?parent=" &#43; DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Parent_ID")%>'
Text='View Children' runat="server" target="_self" ID="Hyperlink2" NAME="Hyperlink2"/> -

In this case, the "View Children" link shows up for every item in my Repeater, but I'd like it shown only if parent.GetNumOfChildren() > 0. Would it be correct to try setting the Visible="true/false" property of the HyperLink? Is that the norm for this sort of problem? Or, is there a way to wrap the entire <asp:Hyperlink> ... </asp:Hyperlink> tag in an if statement that has a reference to the object that is currently being interated in the Repeater? Ie:

if(CurrentDataItemInIteration.GetNumOfChildren() > 0)
<asp:Hyperlink> ..... </asp:Hyperlink>

To me, the Visible="true/false" solution seems cleaner, if possible.

Nested Repeater Show Data That Matches Parent Repeater?

Mar 15, 2011

I am using a repeater to build a custom table. However, I can't figure out how to make the table show subtotal if the next rows tour does not match the previous rows.

Something similar to that.

row1 tour1
row2 tour 1
tour1 subtotal
row3 tour2
row4 tour2


but this shows all the data in the nested repeater not the ones that match the parentrepeater fields for example tour,theme,dep7 should match in the child repeater

Forms Data Controls :: Change Stored Procedure When Dropdown Item Is Selected And Show Repeater?

Jul 9, 2010

I have one repeater on page which has his own sql data source. I've placed 2 dropdown lists on the page. The repeater has jQuery DataTable plugin. With 2 dropdownlist I wish to change the sql stored procedures so when each will be selected the data in repeater will change. When user select the first there will be only data (users) according to selected item and in the second the same. I wrote 2 simple functions for changing stored procedure of repeater and rebiding it. Everything works but when I try the second one and then the first I always get warning about error "Procedure or function .... has too many arguments specified".

I think that when I select the first one the second function is still called although I don't call it.
