How To Format The Text In A Databound TextBox

Mar 22, 2010

I have ListView that has the following EditItemTemplate:

<tr style="">
<asp:LinkButton ID="UpdateButton" runat="server" CommandName="Update" Text="Update" />
<asp:LinkButton ID="CancelButton" runat="server" CommandName="Cancel" Text="Cancel" />
<asp:TextBox ID="FundingSource1TextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("FundingSource1") %>' />
<asp:TextBox ID="CashTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Cash") %>' />
<asp:TextBox ID="InKindTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("InKind") %>' />
<asp:TextBox ID="StatusTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Status") %>' />
<asp:TextBox ID="ExpectedAwardDateTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("ExpectedAwardDate","{0:MM/dd/yyyy}) %>' onclientclick="datepicker()" />

I would like to format the "ExpectedAwardDateTextBox" so it shows a short date time but haven't found a way to do this without going into the code behind. In the Item template I have the following line to format the date that appears in the lable:

<asp:Label ID="ExpectedAwardDateLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# String.Format("{0:M/d yyyy}",Eval("ExpectedAwardDate")) %>' />

And I would like to find a similar method to do with the insertItemTemplate.

Web Forms :: Can't Get Text In A Textbox To Format In The Middle

Dec 24, 2010

I am trying to get text in a textbox to format such that it displays in the middle.

For the control, I have theming off, I have tried a css file, and even a direct style with the HTML. For some reason it just ignores me or I am using the wrong parameter.

Here is my css. I know that CSS is working because as I change the other parameters, the control changes.

Forms Data Controls :: Store Format Or Format Output Of Text Field Into Datalist

Mar 29, 2011

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:

<asp:Label id="WebDescriptionLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("WebDescription") %>' ForeColor="Brown" />

AJAX :: How To Format Text In C# Into Proper JSON Format

Nov 30, 2010

I'm using jquery autocomplete to call a .aspx page which returns some matching words.

The jQuery stuff relies on a JSON feed to work. Currently, in my C# I'm formatting the output as a string, which ouputs something like this:

{ query:'aa','aardvark','aardvarks']}

I was hoping that because the string is formatted in the JSON format, that would be good enough for the Javascript to process but it appears not.

how to format this text in C# into proper JSON format which JavaScript can deal with properly?

C# - Which Databound Control Should Be Use For Nested Databound Controls?

Dec 7, 2010

I want to render something like this (with ASP.Net Controls in the codebehind):

<li class="first"><h1>This is a caption</h1></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo3</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo4</a></li>
<li class="first"><h1>This is a another caption</h1></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo5</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo6</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo7</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo8</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo9</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo10</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo11</a></li>

The amount of li elements that will be rendered into each ul is determined at runtime. Each link in a li belongs to into a specific ul (the one containing a specific caption. Imagine this as a kind of a treeview with nodes and subnodes) During the bind Event I need access to an ASP:HyperLink that will be rendered into the a-element. Which databound ASP.Net control should I pick for this? Looks like a repeater in a repeater, which should make the databinding process ugly. I'm thinking about creating this HTML-Output with StringWriters myself.

Textbox Text Populated By Session Variable Wont Update Into SQL With New Text

May 23, 2010

I have what I think is a weird issue. I send text from one page to another via Session Variable. When page 2 loads, the text box has the session text set, but if the user changes the text and clicks the button, the SQL database is update with the original session text. If I remove the redirect from the page 2 button_Click method, then, the page refreshes with the textbox reverting to the session text and thr SQLDataSource has the session text added to it.
