Forms Data Controls :: Displaying Data Together To A Printable Format
Oct 20, 2010
I have a page with a datalist on it. The datalist shows numerous rows with various data in each column, each showin in a textbox. I'd like the user to be able to select or not select each row (displayed in datalist), and then to click a button which would place all of the data in selected rows into one big label so that it can be printed or emailed.
I have been trying to do this for some time with no luck...
The user registers an item into our database and is then presented with the just inserted details. This item requires a couple of labels, a CD Face label, a CD Inlay label and a barcode label for the packaging. Previously this was done by word templates which had a form on opening to gather the info. Each item then (in theory) requires the user to put in some basic facts 4 times if you include the original registration.
The issue I have is with internet explorer I guess, or the presentation of the data... For instance our barcode printer uses labels which are 5cm x 7cm. Anything remotely larger will not print correctly. So I make a formview with everything set out as 4cm x 6cm and set the page setup to 4.5 x 6.5. it then printed across 4 labels. This is quite frustrating as the print has to be consistent and is reliant upon the user setting quite a few items before trying to print!
So my next excursion was with Word. Create an Interop.Office based way of filling fields in on a template that I knew printed everytime bang on. After the faf of CSID issues and permissions to launch applications, I found that it would work if I was running it using the ASP.net test environment, but on the server it just spawned winword.exe over and over !!!!!!!
The ideal way for me would be that a formview is printable, the ideal way for the user is using word but automate the items being filled in, however I can't seem to get either to work correctly!
Here is the URL to the Screen shot [URL] I want to display the data in the format that is represented in the screenshot. All the data that is shown is retrieved from Sql Server-2005 Database. Which is the best option for such kind of data representation? I have read in the forums, from them I could not get a clear perspective. Some were suggesting listview others nested datagrid, some repeater control. which one would be a easier, proper and accurate way to go forward ?? Along with some reasons (if possible !!). And I'm using visual studio 2008, .net Framework 3.5, asp.net with c# and I'm NOT using LINQ in my project and it is a web application. URL Screen Shot: [URL]
I am having a DOB field in database of type Datetime.I am retrieving this into a gridview .I want to display only date into the gridview in 'DD-MM-YYYY' format and that to in sorting order. How can I do that. I know that by converting DOB to varchar and using SQL Date formats codes(103,105...) I can do that but I can't able to display in sorted order as it will check only the date part and sort the dates. It will not chk the month & year. And I also want the user to insert the date in 'DD-MM-YYYY' format and this to be stored in database. How can I do this? Pls respond me ASAP.

I have a text field that users enter information into a database (SQL Server). They are entering as little as a few sentances to multiple paragraphs. I can successfully display the data on my webpage, but the text field is not formatted very nicely. The output is all smashed together like one big paragraph. Ironically, when I also display the text as a tool tip it outputs as multiple paragraphs like it was entered. How can I format the output in the datalist to create a more readable text field? My datalist field is as follows:
I have a datagrid which pulls data from a single database table to display it. However, this database table also contains information on the thumbnail URL for each record, and I would like to display the thumbnails for each record in the 1st column of the datagrid.
At present I have added the following to my datagrid:
So I presume the main challenge now is to set the Thumbnail.ImageUrl property to the correct file path in the VB.NET code. But how do I do this for each record? I am using a function to retrieve data for the gridview, which is based on the following:
I have a Table (in SQL Server) that is being updated roughly every minute or so with new records being inserted from various sources. The number of records inserted in this duration varies from a few records up to dozens of new records. I am using an update panel to rebind my data every minute to keep the GridView current. Now that I have the data refreshing I am looking for a better solution than reloading the data every minute. how to best keep my GridView up to date? Here is what I would like to accomplish:
1. Load the GridView and refresh the contents every minute. (60 second intervals)
2. When the GridView is refreshed every minute I would like to append only the new records to the existing grid, rather than bringing back the entire result set with each round trip to the database.
3. I would like a visual cue to identify the rows that have been inserted into the GridView. If new rows were to flash/flicker with a background color (yellow) that would be ideal.
Am I even using the correct control for displaying real time data, or are their other options? I essentially am looking to find the preferred method of displaying data that is being updated in real time in a web application. I'm hoping there is a solution involving AJAX but I haven't been able to find much on The Google. I am open to changing anything and everything about my approach -- this is largely a learning exercise. For testing purposes I am currently using LinqDataSource in conjunction with a GridView in an UpdatePanel being refreshed by a Timer control every 60 seconds. Informational: I have also started playing with the [URL] in place of the Timer control. However, for the purposes of this example I would be content to achieve the desired behavior using native controls as I have described them above.
here I can find some info on how to display data from my MSSQL database in something like old style tables (table,<tr>,<td>) becouse I used to done it like this in classic asp but i had a formula for calculating where to put tr or td and it becomed very confused, not to mention displaying gruped records like 10 on each page...I tried gridview in VisualStudio but I can not find any info how to use sql in it so I think it can not help me becouse it is to much predefined and I do not know where I can change code for it like what data source to use, sql and other important thing
I am currently trying to figure out the best way to handle a data formatting issue. I have a stored procedure that pulls back basically all the data I need, but using a gridview doesn't really give me what I need.
For example...currently the gridview displays data like:
I have a problem displaying data in a Grid View control when set a row to visible = false when a certain condition is true.
For example, if a DataRowData value has a condition set to true (custom in table) I set the visible property to false, so the data row will not be visible at run time.
The problem is that I'm using paging (10 rows per page) and if 8 of those rows fall into the true condition that won't show the row, that grid view page will only show two rows of data in page 1. The worst scenario is that if I go to page 2 of the grid view and all the rows (10) fall into the true condition, that grid view page will not show any data at all.
How can I show 10 rows of data at all times in a gridview? In other words, I would like to just show the visible rows at all times.
I have a Transport Detaisl in DB , i want to dispay data on gridview with marquee scrolling up. Cabs are scheduled for drop every hour. So if drop is at 7pm i hav to dispaly on data of that hour from 6:30 to 7:15 later after 7:15 i have to display next hour data ie 8:00 pm drop data. I am able to get scrollin g data on gridview but how to schedlue it to scroll for such timings
In one of my application, I have around 2000 records which i am displaying in gridview with normal paging.
Now I want to change this paging facility and would like to show a "more" button at the footer(just like [URL] has). The moment user clicks it, the next set of data will be retreived. This will go on till all the records are fetched.
I have a gridview with 20 records and I have scroll bar to scroll down to view the records.I m displaying respective row data when click on the select button in grid view. The problem is whenever I select the
row, the gridview refreshes and scroll bar is going up. Ofcourse it is displaying correct data. but the gridview refreshes and scroll bar goes up.I want the selected row to be shown when I select that row.
I'm in the process of developing a survey system. The tables / fields that are related to my question are:
My issues with this way were:
1) The Data Adaptors receive ALL the records from their correspondent tables. Not a good practice, I believe.
2) If, at some point, the survey had no categories, questions or choices under its child records, an error occurs when the page tries to build the Data Relation. With the work flow I had in mind for the system, this is bound to happen becuase all the Data entry pages (Add Category, Add Question, Add Choice) will be displaying the newly-created survey in a similar fashion (at which point, the survey will have no child records and so an error would occur)
I want to display data from one record in a ListView control. There are two other tables that could contain associated records. For each table, if there is an associated record, I want to display the data from a particular field. I'm only concerned with the item amd alternate templates
