I am relative new to use Linq to SQL and MVC together, I am tring to save data to db when an Edit action is posted, I am able to get it to work, but I am sure there are better ways. Here is my code snippet:
public ActionResult Edit(FaqCategory form)
// db is a FaqCategoryDataContext declared in class scope [code]....
FaqCategory only has 3 properties so it's not much a bother to write codes this way, but what if the class has 20 properties? There must be better ways
I am new to AJAX. I am designing a feedback form for a video conferencing session in asp.net web application which will be displayed as a modal window. The questions on the modal window will be displayed from a table stored on SQL Server 2008 and the responses of those questions should again be stored back in a different table on SQL Server after user clicks on the SUBMIT button on the modal window (and also, the window should close after the action).
I am not aware of the way to retrieve data from or store data to SQL server from modal window though I know how to retrieve and store data using asp.net and c#...
What is the easiest way to save form data and retrieve it when the user navigates back to the page?
We have an application process that consists of several web forms. If the user clicks to go back a step we would like to auto-populate the fields. I am assuming there is a common generic way to do this without having to mess with individual controls - what is it?
I've got a form that inserts data into a database using ASP.NET 2.0 . The problem is that when I hit the submit button on FireFox, the page submits and I'm redirected to the correct page. The problem is that the data isn't actually saved.When I try this on IE, it works fine. When I try this on FireFox using another browser it works fine. When I mirrored the application and data locally and use FireFox, it works fine.
It just doesn't work on production, and it seems like only my FireFox is having this problem. I've cleared out the cache in FireFox already, but it still doesn't work.Any ideas what is going on? I can't tell if this is client side or server side, and there is no way to debug right now.
I have a webform (parent) with embedded webgrid(child) which uses sqldatasource. What I wanted to accomplish is to save both the form data and the grid data when the Save button is clicked. I tried to save form data(parent) in sqldatasource1_inserting event, does not work. I think there should be a way to do it, just do not know how.
I want to do something similar to what priceline does. It saves the recent searches in a dropdown menu. When you pick one from the recent search. The form will be populated accordingly. (See screen shot [URL] This is what I am thinking. (1) Save the searches into an array in a cookie (2), when a recent search item is chosen, retrive the corresponding array element from the cookie and then populate the form. What do you think is the best way to implement this? I especially want to know how to save the form entries into the cookie and how to populate the form.
I'm building an application that processes application forms. I'm hoping I can get an advice on how to approach it properly. There are 4 forms right now but it will have a possibility of having more. Most of them have the same fields but each have 4 or 5 items not existing within other forms.
What is the best way for me to store this data (and what sql data type) for me to easily retrieve and update it. I am using SQL Server 2005.
