Forms Data Controls :: Template Field In Gridview Not Accessible?
Jan 10, 2011
I have a gridview, whose columns I am dynamically binding. There are two fixed columns, one is a button field and another is a template field containing an image. The other columns might vary in number and behaviour, so before binding the grid, I am removing all columns of the gridview except the button field and the template field. But after doing this, if i try to do a findcontrol for the template field(Image column), it is notgetting the control. Means while removing the other columns, this image control also getting removed.Below is my code:
Now, after this i call the databind method. The problem is with the for loop, where I am removing the columns after the image column. And I am not able to find the control after that.In rowdatabound i am trying to find the control like this:
i am implementing a update query module.i am displaying all fields from a table for a term searched. well now i am implementing update option for the record which are displayed, i have like 70 columns in my table, and i want to know how to restrict some selected fields to be only read only while the form can be updated ?Like if user select to update a record then some selected field such as "Timestamp, UID etc some selected fields" remains READ ONLY !
Setting up the editItem template of a gridview. I have a template field with a dropdown list for editing. When the gridview goes into edit mode the dropdown list is displayed with all the right options but the current value of the field (pre-editing) is not the selected value of the dropdown list? How do I make that happen? I have a couple fields where the editItem template will use a dropdown list and I'm sure a user will not realize those values have changed and they will just edit what they intended to edit and save the changes, inadvertently also making changes to other fields.
This is my Grid view source basically i want as soon as i click on Select Button , the corrsponding Row Data get's redirected to another Page with the Data I know how to redirect to another page with query string only thing is that where and how i can store the data my .cs source
i have a grid with template feild with two button's Accept and Deny and Command Name="update" and command argument ="Accept" and command argument2="Deny" now the problem is everytime when i click any Button it gives me first row data see my source
I have a gridview where I am using the update. I have converted the label into a templatefield and added a dropdownlist which is getting polulated in the Rowdatabound event. When I test the update i get an error
Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'StartTime', table 'HTC.dbo.EventDates'; column does not allow nulls. UPDATE fails.The statement has been terminated. so I am ussuming its still trying to update from the label rather than using the dropdownlist. here is my code:
I am using an IComparer to do the sorting of the gridview and binding it to a list of objects. It used to be that the linkbutton in the first template field was being done like this:
The sorting worked just fine when it was like this, but I would prefer not to use a querystring value. The problem with using the linkbutton is that the sorting appears to work (there are only two rows in my test case and they change places), but when the linkbutton is clicked on it is in the same order before the sort took place. After each sort the gridview's datasource is reset to the newly sorted list of objects and the databind method is called.
I have a gridview and basically at page load I want it to display with an empty row. The first field in the gridview would be a template field containing a textbox. I wan't to be able to type in, for example, a product code ('abc'). This would be the parameter for the stored procedure and then the rest of the columns (40+ additional columns) in the gridview would populate with the rest of the data pertaining to that product code (i.e. price, unit of measure, etc.). In short the template field texbox is the control to bind the gridview.
After the row is populated I could click a button or link that would add that entire row to my gridview and then add another empty row where I could enter another product code... populate the row then add that row to the gridview. and so on...
I have a GridView that is bound to a DataTable containing questions. Each question has a possible score of 1 to 9 which is handled by a Template Field with a RadioButtonList databound to another DataTable (containing the values 1 to 9). This all works fine except as an added complication, some of the questions have an extra choice in another field. So the problem is how do I bind the second Template Field to a datasource that is dependent on the question. It's like passing a parameter to the datasource of the second Template Field, the value of the parameter being the Key Field of the particular row. Is this possible and if so, how do I do it
I have a asp:button in template field of gridview, I set command name for this and in grid I mention on command event. On clicking the page it shows error message is :
Invalid postback or callback argument. Event validation is enabled using <pages enableEventValidation="true"/> in configuration or <%@ Page EnableEventValidation="true" %> in a page. For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them. If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.
I have an application that I would like to be able to allow the user to modify multiple characteristics of each record within a datagrid.
Most characteristics require data to be entered in a text box but some a check box would be more appropriate.
My question is does a gridview column need to have all the same item template controls? or could I read from the database the control type and dynamically alter the template control for each row as it loads?
I just wrote something small up with a GridView databound to the products table of the northwind database to play around with the control. I added a template field and put a checkbox in it, ProductID, ProductName, and UnitCost. I can successfully loop through the GridView and find the rows that have the checkbox checked, and can get ProductName for each row, but keep erroring out on ProductID and UnitCost. It's probably something small, but I just cannot figure it out.Here is what I have so far:
My code behind, where I handle a button click event to get all values in rows w/ selected checkboxes:
Can I not use row.Cells[i]? The only thing Intellisense gives me that makes any sense is 'rows.Cells[i].Text'... not sure what else to do.
I have seen several Web Sites that use GridViews that have lookup fields with different Value and Text Fields (as in drop down lists) but I can't seem to figure it out how to display the Text Field in the Item Template when the Text Field is not in the datasource. .
Here's what I have. I have a Gridview whose datasource is a Linq to SQL Invoice table, e.g.
InvoiceID CustomerID InvoiceNumber
THe Customer table is related to the Invoice Table thru the CustomerID. The relationship is defined in SQL Server and is displayed in the DBML.
I have created a template field for the CustomerID field in the Gridview. I would like to display the CustomerName when the Item Template is displayed and a DropDownList in the Edit Template. The DropDownList works great, but I cannot seem to figure out how to display the CustomerName in then Item Template.
I seem to remember seeing in some video that you can simply drag the CustomerName into the CustomerID Item Template Field. But I can't seem to find the customerName field. The DataSource includes the Customer Table because of the relationship, but no fields are displayed.
I suspect this is real simple, but I cannot seem to find an article or video that explains how to do this.
