Web Forms :: Generate Controls Based On Xml

I have to create ASP.NET controls dynamically based on an xml schema/ file. For example I have following file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Field ID="Firstname" Name="Firstname" LocID="_Firstname" Type="String" MappingControl="Textbox"></Field>
<Field ID="Lastname" Name="Lastname" LocID="_Lastname" Type="String" MappingControl="Textbox">
<Validation Type="Length" MaxValue="10" MinValue="0" WarningMessage="_WarningTextLength"></Validation>

Based on this I want to create controls on the page dynamically. I think it is a bit like the ASP.NET Dynamic data project, but I have no Entity Framework or Linq to SQL Context available. Of cause: I can write my own XML parser and page generator but I don't want to reinvent the wheel again. Do you maybe created a similar project or know some good source that uses the same approach?

MVC :: Generate Proper Controls In View Based On The Model
it is possible to customize the typed view generation process to generate the proper controls based on the fields annotations of a model. For Example I have a Person Model that contains Foreign Keys like CityID,DepartmentID etc. So When i generate a view againt the Person Model it creates textbox's for all the Person fields but i want dropdownlists against FK fields. It Should be smart enough to at least geereate the peroper controls based on the Person's field annotations. How can i acheive that? Has anybody worked on that?

DataSource Controls :: Generate List Of Dates Based On Database Data?
I have a database which contains an ID combined with a date, for example:

ID Date
1 14-12-2009
2 17-12-2009
1 16-12-2009

What I try to achieve in ASP.NETis that for each ID (in this example 2 unique IDs, but can be more than 2) thelast weeks (Now-7 days) business days datesare listed, which are not yet in the database. Like:

- ID 1
- 11-12-2009
- 15-12-2009
- 17-12-2009
- 18-12-2009

- ID 2
- 11-12-2009
- 14-12-2009
- 15-12-2009
- 16-12-2009
- 18-12-2009

how to get started with this problem?

Web Forms :: Efficient Way To Generate, Based Upon The 'switches' Already Contained Within An Sql Database
My website wasdeveloped for me some years ago and is currently being rewritten by another developer.

One of the features of the website is that I can alter the layout of the pages using 'switches' in my Content Management System. These 'switches' typically allow me to swtich images on/off, alter their size and select whether text is shown to left, right, above or below the images.

My current developer has advised me that:

'there is no HTML document at design time, the HTML in it's complete form only gets generated at runtime. If you look atCMmod_main.ascx.vb you'll see that various fragments of HTML are being added to the page at various points throughout the server side code (inside if statements etc).'

He goes on to say that:

'it's extremely difficult to maintain, extend or debug in the future.'

So my question is what is the most efficient way to generate, based upon the 'switches' already contained within an sql database, webpages at runtime?

I have done a great deal of research on the internet and cannot believe that my requirement is unique. But I have been able to find little relevant information. The most promising solution, so far, seems to be an article [URL] which deals with email templates.

Web Forms :: Generate A Unique Identifier Or Reference Number Based On A Format?
I need to generate a Unique Reference number that has 7 digits.

It should be formatted in the following way:

1st: B (Ball), G (Gift), C (Cat)

2nd: represents year of booking A(2010), B(2011),C(2012), etc

3rd: represents the month of booking J(Jan),F(Feb),M(Mar),A(Apr),Y(May), U(Jun), L(Jul),G(Aug), S(Sep),O(Oct),N(Nov),D(Dec)

4th: days of booking A(1st) - Z(26th), 1(27th) - 5(31st)

5,6,7th: These are counters for the number issues each day. Each can be A-Z,0-9 giving a total of 46,656 combinations. So 0 is first, then 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A-Z, then 00 to 0Z, then 10 to 1Z, then 20 to 2Z, etc

Now , the 1st Digit is a Character that I generate based on a condition and that shouldn't be a problem.

Automatically Generate Pages Based On DB
I'm new to ASP.NET and I'm trying to make a site that has a couple of questions that are followed by four answer choices that are in a radio list. The user picks a choice and it gets saved to a database. My question is: can I create a table with a question number, the question, and the answer options and have ASP create the pages (one per question) for me based on a template? If so, how would I go about doing that

C# - Automatically Generate SEO Keywords Based On Dynamic Page Contents?
I have a webforms (framework 3.5) site with a TON of dynamic content. Depending on the url, one or many content items will be sent to the client. I need a way to generate meta keywords for SEO based on the contents of the page (or part of the page, if possible).

I've done a little research and am not really turning up anything that addresses my problem directly. I have, on the other hand, found some interesting stuff that might get me there with considerable work. One idea I have is to intercept the response buffer at Application_BeginRequest (global.asax), parse out some meaningful keywords, and inject them back into the response buffer. However, this seems like a pretty expensive process and I don't even know if it's possible. I also feel like there could be a way to do this with an HttpModule.

I'm interested in what the community has to say about this. Is there already an existing and accepted way to do this that I'm just missing.

Forms Data Controls :: Why Does DropDownList Generate Three Controls In A Table Cell
A DropDownList is put in a GridView's TemplateField. Its corresponding table cell at runtime shows three controls (verified by checking gv.Rows[iSelected].Cells[iColumn].Controls). The three controls are: 1. Literal; 2. DropDownList; 3. Literal. It is not the case for other controls, at least not for TextBox which I usually access by something like gv.Rows[iSelected].Cells[iColumn].Controls[0]. This is not a big problem because I can always access it by its static ClientID, but I am curious why so and whether other controls have the behavior.

Web Forms :: Want To Dynamically Generate Asp Controls From Code Behind
On my form I want to display n number of rows ofasp textboxes where n is determined by the numberof recordsin the corresponding database table. I can dynamically generate html controls and get the values via request.form but I can't figure out how to do the same with asp controls.

The output from the following code, displays the text boxes from the "input type=text" statement, but displays nothing for the "asp:textbox" statement. I would prefer to use asp (or third party controls) so would greatly appreciate help on how to render non-html controls dynamically from my code behind.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Dim ncount As Integer = 0
Dim strOutput As String = "" [code]....

Forms Data Controls :: Cannot Dynamically Generate A Gridview
I coded in code behind to dynamically generate a gridview as the columns of the gridview changes based on user selection. In the gridview I have dynamically generated controls like textbox, dropdown list etc.I have a few filtering options about, for example: listbox which will postback on change and causes the gridview content to change as well.My problem is: since the controls are randomly generated and every postback will read dataset from database and reload, the naming of the controls are dynamically generated too.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Generate Printable Report

I want users to be able to select a Location, Job Title, and a Salary Range, and then click Generate Report to show a list of employees. I created some code that will give me a select statement based off the filters but all I know how to do with that select statement is put it into an HTML table. I need it to go into a printable report with employees grouped by location on separate pages.

Forms Data Controls :: Generate Table Rows From Code Behind?
I have a question on tables, is it possible to generate table rows from code behind? For instance I retrieve data from my db and assuming in the db there's currently only 1 row. Then from code behind I want to create a table to hold the retrieved data.

Eg. data retrieved from table is 'username' , 'mobile no' and I want to create a table that looks like this (2 columns)

username jessie
mobile no 123456

The reason why Im asking if it can be done from code behind is because sometimes the table may have more than 1 row of data, so assuming it returned 2 rows of data, I want to create 2 tables.


username jessie
mobile no 123456
username donald duck
mobile no 678910

And Im using table instead of gridview because each row has like 10 columns, and my gridview will be really really wide which I dont want, hence I chose table.
