How To Make The Gridview Columns NOT To Expand And If The Data Needs To Show In Full

Feb 25, 2011

So i'm currently designing a site ( ) and i've made my skeleton master page.What i've noticed is that the gridview must be cut down a little to fit my 1024x768 design.

Now i have taken a note in the past to look at this but i couldn't find the time so i guess the time is now.
What i have problem with is shrinking the columns.If i have a name, say "jack R" and i make a gridview column,say width 15 then the name is included and all is ok.However if i have another name,say "jack the 3rd" then the column will expand to fill the name.So all the grid will expand to the right.I have tried in the past some stuff but it seems that if a value is longer than the column then i expands whatever i do.Also i was surprised to see that only the dates will not expand and go "down" instead of right.At least in the gridview i have.

So the 2 questions.How do i make the gridview columns NOT to expand and if the data needs to show in full then how do i make the data go DOWN and not expand right.I have no problem of the grid expanding downwards but i have a problem of the grid expanding to the right.

Forms Data Controls :: Hide / Show Gridview Columns Using Javascript?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a webpage that lists information about trucks and their map sections and whether the combination is active and will be used.

On the page I put a check box that says Show Only Active and marked the checked property as true by default. When the RowDataBound event fires I check to see if that checkbox is marked as true and if it is I check if the individual map sections are marked as active. If they are not active then I set the row visibility equal to false like below.

Web Forms :: Make Data Controls Full Screen On IPhone Or Other Smartphones?

Sep 3, 2010

Admittedly, I haven't done a lot of development for iPhone or smartphones, in general. This is a conventionally sized 3.5 website with a subfolder that contains simplified webforms that are supposed to be optimized for smartphone screens, specifically the iPhone. The page giving me the problem contains an AJAX accordion control with three panes. The first pane has a DetailsView with the default mode set to Insert. The second pane has a three column gridview. The last pane has another detailsview that shows the detail of whichever record is selected in the gridview. Pane 1, the gridview, is the default view when the page loads. Everything works fine on the page but when it renders on the iPhone 4, the accordion and the controls are very small, occupying about 1/4 of the screen. Double-tapping the gridview causes the screen to zoom or you can use two fingers to stretch it to the size you want. I would like to find a way to make the page load with the controls already zoomed in to full screen. I have triedstyle="width: 400px;" in the <body> element, the <form> element, and in the <div> element. None of them made a difference.

C# - GridView - Columns.Insert() Cause Data To Vanish On Postback But Columns.Add() Works OK?

Oct 13, 2010

I have a GridView that has several dynamic columns (I do not know how many at design time and it could be 0-12 columns, hence need for dynamic columns). I have the columns in the grid and data bound to them - works great. There are other standard, design-time TemplateField columns with TextBox controls in them. These are bound with values that the user can edit. The grid is posted back via a Submit button. My question is "Why does gv.Columns.Insert() cause all my TextBox data to be null on Postback, but gv.Columns.Add() works like a champ?"

protected void BuildColumns()
// The first column to begin to insert the columns in the GridView
int columnIndex = 5;
BoundField aoColumn = new BoundField();
aoColumn.HeaderText = "New Column 1";
gvMyGrid.Columns.Insert(columnIndex, aoColumn); // kills txtQuantity.Text on postback
gvMyGrid.Columns.Add(aoColumn); // works fine
foreach (MyEntity my in _myEntityCollection)
BoundField myColumn = new BoundField();
myColumn.HeaderText = String.Format("{0:d}", my.StartDate);
gvMyGrid.Columns.Insert(columnIndex, myColumn);

I then go on to assign values to these BoundFields in the _RowDataBound method and all of this works great. However, when I post back and try to reference some TextBox and they are all null. And yes, I have the BuildColumns() call wrapped in if (!IsPostBack) on Page_Load. Of course I would like to use .Insert() so that the columns can go in the proper location and not at the end of the Columns array.
