Forms Data Controls :: Change Binding Based On Formview Insert Or Edit?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm using an edittemplate to handle both editing and inserting for a Formview. In Insert mode, the Identity parameter is not needed (and cannot be used in the parameter list). In Edit mode, I need the bound value to know which record to update. So, what I tried to do is set the Text property in the OnDataBinding method.


The result is that the field is bound for Insert anyway, shows up as a parameter, and my insert statement fails (since this extra field messes up the field order of the parameters). Plus, it is always null in Insert mode by definition.

Is the OnDataBinding method too late to clear the property? If so, where can I do this, since PageLoad is too early (the template has not loaded yet and I cannot Findcontrol the field. Or is there a better way to handle all this?

Forms Data Controls :: How To Change A Textbox To Dropdownlist In Formview Insert Mode

Jan 5, 2010

I created a formview that I am using for data input (DefaultMode=Insert)

One of the objects I have is a text box (see below)


When I click submit I get a message that I cannot insert a Null into the field IntershipNumAvailable. This makes sense since I made this field a required field in the database.

How do I get the form to recognize that the user selected item is the one I want to write to the database?

What changes do I need to make here? Do I need to make changes to my parameter list?

Forms Data Controls :: How To Change Insert To Edit If UserId Exist In Table

Feb 6, 2011

It sounds pretty simple, but I can't find a way to make it work. I have a FormView with a InsertTemplate where it inserts the current logged in user's UserId and content from a HTMLeditor, and a EditTemplate where it retreives the current logged in UserId and shows content from database in the HTMLeditor.

How can I get it to show EditTemplate if the userId exist in the table, and InsertTemplate if the UserId does not exist in the table?

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Insert Template Fill Like Edit Item Template For All Fields

Mar 3, 2010

I have a formview with various templates set up for a database that has 255 columns. I need the insertitemtemplate to pre-fill values based upon a specific selection by the user (just like the edit item template) but when the template is switched to insertitemtemplate every text box is cleared. The idea is that a new entry is usually made by making minor changes to an existing entry. With 255 fields I don't want to require the user to enter every field when only three or four need to change.

I would like to set the one template for edit/insert and view in my custom FormView control . But i got these odd exception Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.UI.LiteralControl' to type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Table'.

public class CustomFormView : FormView
[PersistenceMode(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty), TemplateContainer(typeof(FormView), BindingDirection.TwoWay)]
public IBindableTemplate FormTemplate { get; set; }
protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
if (FormTemplate != null)
if (CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Edit)
edited :
in the first step , I created the new user control and added a formview ("FV")
public partial class Form : UserControl
private IBindableTemplate _template = null;
TemplateContainer(typeof(FormView), System.ComponentModel.BindingDirection.TwoWay)]
public IBindableTemplate FormTemplate { set;get }
protected void Page_Init()
if (FormTemplate != null)
FV.InsertItemTemplate = FV.EditItemTemplate = FormTemplate;
if (!IsPostBack) FormTemplate.InstantiateIn(FV);

Now , I want to convert this user control to web control.

Forms Data Controls :: Conditional Binding Of Selected Value In Formview DDL?

May 4, 2010

I have a sql-bound formview with three DDL's bound to individual SQL datasources. In edit mode, I want to set the selected value to the formview's value, and this works:

SelectedValue='<%# Eval("Name") %>'

But it only works when there's a match between what's in the formview's DS and the DDL's DS.

Unfortunately, there may be instances where the the formview's DS may return a null value or a value different from the DDL's datasource...and when that happens I receive a compilation error like:

'ddl2' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.
Parameter name: value

What do I need to do to trap that condition before attempting to set the selected value? Do I need to set the selected value of the DDL in formview's dataBinding or dataBound event, by looping through the DDL and checking for a match first?

Forms Data Controls :: Binding A Label Inside A FormView To Another SP Result?

Dec 6, 2010

I have a label inside a formview that is not bound to anything.

Lets say I have a table of customers (with a key field called CustomerID), and then another table that has all their orders (with amount spent per order (OrderID) - based on CustomerID)

On the FormView there is a key field (CustomerID) (this is to be used as an INPUT parameter to a SP - which is to return the SUM of all the customers (Order_Totals). I could nest a view within a view I suppose to get this result, however, I just want a label to simply show this ScalarValue.

Basically, I want the label to show the aggregate (SUM) total amount each customer has spent on all orders. I have a SP called SumCost with two Fields (one a grouped by field CustomerID and the other a Summed Total of each customer's orders SumCost)

SELECT [SumCost] FROM [SumCost] WHERE ([CustomerID] = @CustomerID)

I test my SP and it works great, returning the value based on CustomerID - no problem.

My problem is getting the CustomerID passed into the SP on runtime (do I put it in FormView2_Databound) and putting the value into the label (CustTotalLbl) which is inside this form.
