Forms Data Controls :: Want To Know Which Is Better Between Datalist, Gridview Or Listview
Sep 7, 2010
I am extremely new to ASP and just started learning. I want to know which is better between Datalist, Gridview or Listview if I need paging and sorting functionality? This is what I have so far.
I've tried Datalist but I am having trouble with the paging portion. I've tried gridview and listview and got the paging to work but for some reason, when I click on Pg 2, it refreshes the search or something and what was shown on Pg 1 would appear again on Pg 2.
I have a DataList control that I use to display a list of words.
When a user click on any of these words, I want to display the details of this word's in my ListView control that is on the right side of the DatatList control. The ListView control is setup to use a SQLDataSource control. I want to use the SqlDataSource1_Selecting method to grabe the ID from the DataList control but I'm not sure how I grabe the ID or how to setup the DataList to send the ID over.
I am using a Datalist and a Listview in a Master/Detail relationship. Each time a DataList item is bound, a Listview is loaded dynamically. I have provided the relevant Layout and Item templates. It is worked fine for one item. But for more than one item, it will raise the following error: "An item placeholder must be specified on ListView 'ItemListView'. Specify an item placeholder by setting a control's ID property to "MyLayout$itemPlaceholder". The item placeholder control must also specify runat="server". Despite having set up the item placeholder.
I am going to have a page that list an (image, description, category) this needs to be an editable list (the user should be able to edit description or select a cateogry from a dropdown or delete the whole image). lets say I need to display 20 rows per page.here are my questions:1) should I use datagrid, gridview or datalist?2) would PagingBulletedList works well with any of the above control3) when I go to the database to get the rows , since i am going to have 20 items per page should I just bind the control with all the rows or should I just display the first 20 items and when the user click page 2 i go to the database to bring the second set of 20 items?
I want to show just the first row or the datalist although datareader returns x number of rows. I need to use it for printing so is it possible to get x number of wors from the datareader and display just the first row hiding all other (it will make printingeasier)
I have downloaded the code 39 font to display barcode in my GridView or DataList. It shows the barcode with the numeric value under it. I only want to show the barcode. how to omit numeric value from barcode?
I have a webform that functions as a kind of a timesheet. The way it works now is that a user selects a project from a dropdownlist, the enters a date and the amount of hours worked. After that the user selects the link button "register" and the worked hours are registered and the result will be shown in a datalist (for each project a new one). Is there some possible way to show a user in advance all the projects he is authorized for in a datalist or so, so he can fill out the hours for all the projects at once? Now the selection for a project from the dropdownlist is a problem for some users cause they have a lot if projects and it is quit a workload on the manor now.
The problem is that i have a search page. Access Database holding the information. I have a Access Datasource on the page with a Datalist to show the data. I need to find a way on setting it up to says "Sorry no results found" when the is no results. i am unsure on how to do this though.
I have a master-detail page consisting of a databound GridView and ListView. It's pretty standard - when you select a row in the GridView is shows up the ListView. The problem I'm running into is when I want to link to that page with a specific row pre-selected in both views. It seems like it should be easy enough, but I just can't figure it out. Currently, the ListView is connected to the GridView with a ControlParameter in the SelectCommand.
I have a listview and inside the listview I have a gridview. I'm binding data to the listview, then on the listview itemdatabound I'm binding the gridview. I want to make the gridview editable so I have an edit template and an edit command button. I have the event rowediting and inside there I set the edit index. Now normally I rebind the control and everything works. But if I rebind this gridview, nothing happens.
I can trace through the rowediting and everything is working. It's setting the edit index, it goes through the databind and gets the right data and binds it to the control. What is happening? Why isn't my rebound edit mode gridview showing up?
and I have this around the GridView :
and this around the DataList:
Am building a Form for out intranet that runs on ASP.NET and C#, it is to be a survey from a SQL database. I have the connections setup can pull informations/Questions from the database.
