MVC :: Display Foreign Key-bound Property From Model View

Apr 17, 2010 08:38 PM

but I am new with MVC and database-driven applications.

I hava a table with Cities (ID,Name) and one with Businesses(ID,CityID,Name). The later has a foreign key relationship with the first table.

I used a linq-to-SQL class to create my models.

My problem is that I need to access the City Name(not the ID) when displaying the Business Model View.

How can I do this? if from my controller I call the View passing the auto-generated Business Model, I only have access to the ID.

MVC :: Create View With A Model Class With A Lookup / Foreign Key?

May 14, 2009 08:23 PM

I am following along with the Contact example [URL], and using my own model. Instead of the Contact class, mine has a foreign key field to a lookup table for "Locations." I have the following code.


When I fill out my Create view, and submit it I get the following error:

There is no ViewData item with the key 'LocationID' of type 'IEnumerable<SelectListItem>'.


I am guessing I need to add a Location parameter to my Post-Create action, so I can assign it to pagerToCreate.Location. but, how do i pass that in from the view, and is there a more auto-magic way?

So I have code as below

I wonder why the ACCVM.newMtn0130 become null after RedirectToAction? I already assign with "_ACCVM.newMtn0130 = newMtn0130".

ACCVM._Error didn't become null after RedirectToAction.

How To Return Errors To View From Controller Not Tied To A Specific Model Property

Aug 26 10 at 17:14

Curious what the best practice is for returning errors to a view from a controller where the error isn't really a validation error, but more like "user not found" or "service timeout" type of errors. (in ASP.NET MVC2 framework)

I've been adding them to the ModelState's model errors, but that doesn't seem appropriate. (although easy to implement and maintain)

Example - A user tries to log in, and their credentials do not match a known user.

I am trying to create a relation between 2 of my model classes. I have separated my Model classes to be in their own project "Domain Model" and the application exists in the "WebUI" project.

I have 2 models.... SupportIssues and Users....

SupportIssues has a column UserID which is also a primary key in the Users table.

I want to create a relationship where one user can have many support issues.

MVC :: How To Use DropDownListFor With Model Binding For Foreign Key Column

Dec 18, 2009 12:23 AM

I have an edit MVC view page that is built up with the following

<%= Html.DropDownList("PatientID", (SelectList)ViewData["Patients"]) %>

I want to use Html.DropDownListFor, but it doesn't work because it builds up the select list with the name "Patient_PatientID" or "Patient.PatientID" and that then fails in the update.

The controller sets up the following

ViewData["Patients"] = new SelectList(scheduleRepository.FindAllPatients(), "PatientID", "Lastname", appointment.Patient.PatientID);

I can save with this code

Appointment appointment = scheduleRepository.GetAppointment(id);
appointment.PatientReference.EntityKey = new EntityKey("SimpleScheduleEntities.Patients", "PatientID", Int32.Parse(collection["PatientID"]));

Forms Data Controls :: Bound Parent Table's Selectedvalue To The Child Table's Foreign Key When Insert?

Oct 20, 2009 10:17 AM

I have this problem for the whole day. In my page, I have a gridview for the User Account table (parent table), below that I have a formView for the Users Project table (Child table which has the Account table's PK - UserId). Both tables are mapped in a dataset, and each of them has an objectDataSource inherited by the gridview and formView, However, when I try to insert new record to the child table , the UserId did not pre-set to the gridview selected value, so it give me error -

You cannot add or change a record because a related record is required in table 'aspnet_Users'

Of cause i know whats the error means, but how do it solve this problem, how to i bound the formview insert's UserId to the gridview's selectedValues when I try to insert ?

Should Data Annotations Be On The Model Or The View Model

Dec 15 10 at 16:13

I've been used to decorating data model classes with data annotation attributes, but the purist in me baulks slightly at including purely presentational attributes such as display format here. I am, however, quite happy to keep validation centric attributes here. One good reason I have to continue keeping all annotations etc. in the data model is that my view model aggregates data model classes, e.g.

my ViewModelBase.DetailItem<TEntity> property in the view model is just a reference to an entity class in my data model. If I wanted to move presentational annotations to the view model, I would have to quite radically revise my design to one where I duplicate data model properties in my view model and use an object mapping tool to populate view model objects based on data model objects.

MVC :: View Model To Convert To Domain Model?

May 04, 2010 01:43 AM

Say I got a domain model as follows: (and my repository expect an instance of this object)


And a view model (which my views are based on)


At the moment I got it like this and have my controller action manually create a new Person object from the PersonModel object before passing it on to the repository, which does not feel right.

So I tried to have PersonModel inherit from Person and pass that to the repository (also tried casting the PersonModel to a Person object first), but that don't work out.

What's the right way to have PersonModel automatically cast to Person? I want to keep this logic as my current structure allow me to keep things really loosely coupled, with the repository layer not having a clue how it's being used.

Like you would bind to any control in the ItemTemplate of a Gridview.

But - for some reason that value isn't being passed to my control. I have tried binding the value to a label and it writes to the page fine so I know the value is there but when I try to bind it my own web user control, it doesn't work.

GridView RowStyle Dependent On Property Of Item Row Bound To?

I'm currently using a GridView and I want to set the CssClass for the Row depending on a property of the object that the row is being bound to.I tried the following:

<asp:GridView id="searchResultsGrid" runat="server" AllowPaging="true" PageSize="20" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
<!-- The following line doesn't work because apparently "Code blocks
aren't allowed in this context --> <RowStyle CssClass="<%#IIF(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"NeedsAttention","red","") %>

Now I could simply handle theGridView's RowDataBound event and change the css class of the row there...but I'm trying to keep a clear separation between the UI and the page/business logic layers.

Is Echo <%= %> Syntax Evaluated Before The Declared Value Is Bound To The Property

Oct 29 10 at 13:40

When are declared values bound to properties of a user control in WebForms?

I have a user control which has a public property which is an enum type. In my aspx page I'm setting it's value declaratively. In the ascx I'm outputting the value to the page using <%= %> syntax. The value that is output by the echo syntax is always zero 0. The enum does nopt have a zero value.

My question therefore is, is echo <%= %> syntax evaluated before the declared value is bound to the property?


The output is :

<a href="foo.aspx?foo=0">Foo</a>
<a href="foo.aspx?foo=0">Foo</a>
<a href="foo.aspx?foo=0">Foo</a>

I'm going to assume that zero is the "unset" value for any enum member and therefore assume that <%= is executed before the value is bound to the property.

Gridview - Toggle Checked Property Of A Data Bound Checkbox?

Aug 9 10 at 9:52

I have a GridView control that has one column of checkboxes set up like this:

<asp:CheckBox ID="RowCheckBox" runat="server" Enabled="false" Checked='<%# (bool)DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem ,"Associated") %>'/>

Then when the user clicks an Edit button I run a script that enables all the checkboxes (which works fine), and then when the user then clicks on a checkbox the tick is appearing or disappearing as it should.

The problem I'm having is that when I try to read the value of the checkbox from the codebehind:

CheckBox checkBox = (CheckBox) row.FindControl("RowCheckBox");
bool checked = checkBox.Checked;

If the value bound to it was true then checked is still true, no matter if it was toggled or not.

Edit: Corrected a spelling mistake. Question still stands though...

MVC2 View Model For Multiple View Forms And Data

one thing that has been puzzling me since learning MVC2 is the following case scenario: I have a view which contains two latest news lists, a login form and a signup form. Every example I found on Views and View Models so far has a one-to-one example such as a simple login form etc. But how do I create a model that provides the properties and validation for a login and signup form and manages the data for the news lists. can I pass multiple models in the strongly typed view? When I created one model the form validation would fail as it expects all fields - login and signup to be filled. I am missing some advanced examples or information.

Localization :: LINQ2SQL / Text Label Is Bound To The SwedishText Property In The Mark Up?

Mar 12, 2010 04:33 PM

Im using LINQ2SQL and i have an object called Article. Its has 2 properties FinishText and SwedishText. The idea is to let the user choose language. Swedish is default.

I bind the objects to a listView and there is a label that takes the swedish language. When the user presses the Finish flag button i want the objects to reload and the finish text to show instead of the swedish. The problem is that the text label is bound to the SwedishText property in the mark up like this:

<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "SwedishText")%>

I can think of some ways to solve this, and i have one that doesnt work that well. My question is, what would be a good way to solve this? Im not so experienced so i know that there are lots of you out there that know how to do this much better.

Another problem i dont like my solution to is when i have an object that has a association with my Article object, like ArticleCategory. The ArticleCategoryId of my Article is, lets say 31, which is corresponds to the category "Movies". I dont want to display the category id but rather the name of the category itself (Movies).

So this is what i do:
<%#GetCategoryNameFromId(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Article_Id"))%>

I call a method that recreates the artice object and from there creates the ArticleCategory and gets the name from it. Its a horrible solution cause it involves lots of trips to the Database. Especially since i do similar things with other properties.

Just wanted to hear what is a proper and good way to deal with these common but for me new tasks.

Dynamic Data Foreign Key Table Display Name?

PAR_TipiDocumento with
idTipoDocumento PK

the 2nd:

This is my .cs code for the metadata:

[DisplayName("Tipi Documento")]
public partial class PAR_TipiDocumento[code]....

The problem is that in the Dynamic Data generated pages I correctly see all the display names "Tipi Documento" except for the header row of the PAR_ClassiDocumento table where I have "PAR_TipiDocumentos" (the plural generated by LINQ to SQL). The values under this column are correctly rendered as links to the PAR_TipiDocumento table with the right display name ("View Tipi Documento").

How can I change the Display Name of that "PAR_TipiDocumentos"?

Custom Server Controls :: Data Bound From Single Object Or Control Property?

Jul 31, 2009 01:04 PM

how to go about implementing this for one of many controls I am developing that will be extending a legacy system.

I have a custom server control that is supposed to be taking a single Form object and using that Form object to build up a UI for the control. The form is basically a class with several properties:

- height
- width
- controls collection

The controls collection is populated with data (textboxes, labels, each with their own properties, eg. top position, left position etc) from a database. I will be reading through these controls and creating one of my new custom controls (eg: a custom text control when it detects an input control of type "text") and all of this will sit inside my <tp:legacyForm ... />.

But, I'm a little unsure on where to get on implementing this.

Should the control inherit from "compositeDataboundControl"? With this though, I just have one single object and I don't really have an items collection to display... I don't really want the developers using this control to get hold of a Form object and add it to a list collection before assigning it to the datasource.

Or should the control simply have a Form property that I don't expose through the VS designer. If I did it this way, I would have to add extra code to support a non-simple type?

Forms Data Controls :: Formatting Date Within Bound Label's Text Property?

I got a suggestion from someone at the forum post listed below, but the syntax was in C# (Text='<%# ((DateTime)Bind("WeatherDate")).ToShortDateString()%>'). I'm trying to get this into VB code.

I've tried:

Text='<%# Bind(CDate("WeatherDate")).ToShortDateString() %>' , and

Text='<%# CDate(Bind("WeatherDate")).ToShortDateString() %>' , and even Text='<%# ind((CDate("WeatherDate")).ToShortDateString()) %>' so far, but got build errors saying the Bind was not well formed.

Forms Data Controls :: VS 2008 Cannot Insert Foreign Key Value In Form View?

Jul 26, 2010 07:51 PM

I have a database with a 1 to many relationship in SQL Server 2008. I have created a formview in VS2008 to insert records into the child table. However I can't set the foreign key to automatically insert this value. If I manually type in a value the insert works but I need it to pick up the fk ID automatically from the master table. How can I do this?

The master table: tblTopic has ID int auto increment primary key and the child table has ID int auto increment primary key and TopicID int allow duplicates no nulls, foreign key. I have set updates to cascade in the relationship.

My insert statement is INSERT INTO tblTopic (TopicID, Comment, SubmittedBy) VALUES (@TopicID, @Comment,@SubmittedBy). The TopicID keeps throwing the error, this is the foreign key.

This is the first time I have tried to do this, so apologies if it's really obvious but I'm on a bit of learning curve.

I'm trying to have that dropdown box display the full name of the person it references which would be combining the fields fname and lname.

Would I do this inside a Field Template? Metadata? I'm kind of stuck on this.
