Web Forms :: Setting The Properties Of USerControl From Values In C#?

Dec 15, 2010

I have some user controls which have properties which need to be set from a form on the page

Property2="0" Property3="<%=Property3%>"

Property3 and Property4 anre both public properties of the page I am on and the user control

Currently the code complaing about Property3 saying it cannot create an object of Int32 from '<%=Property3%>' and Property4 always gets set to 0 (the default)

I do not wish to use the c# code to set these values as this Plugin will be deployed with a CMS which I have no control over

Setting Values For Invisible Fields / Properties In DetailsView?

Mar 16, 2011

I have a DetailsView which has two fields - one that is visible, one that is not. The first the user fills out, the second I want to auto-populate. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a way to set the value in this second invisible field. I've tried adding code like this to the Page_Load:

If Not IsPostBack Then
DetailsView1.DefaultMode = DetailsViewMode.Insert
Dim txt1 As TextBox = DirectCast(DetailsView1.FindControl("Type"), TextBox)
txt1.Text = "administrator"
End If

But this returns an error of "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." how to accomplish this - either using the method above or another method? The hoped for end result is that when a new record is inserted via the DetailsView that this record will include the username (entered by the user) as well as the "type" of "administrator"

Web Forms :: Setting Page Properties From Itself?

Oct 8, 2010

Is there any easy way to set properties of a Page (or UserControl for that matter) from *within itself*?As an example, I have several .aspx pages which inherit from exactly the same code-behind class, but I need to be able to pass different properties to the class to make them do the correct thing for the specific .aspx.
The only way I've found to do this is to create the following - which works fine, but doesn't feel right....

<script runat="server">
Private Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Init
Me.MyProperty = True
End Sub

It would be a much nicer, simplier and easier solution to be able to be able to set MyProperty = True somewhere... is this possible?The option of hard-coding properties within the class for the "parent" page is not going to work for my situation.

Web Forms :: Setting Properties Within BasePage Class Not Working?

Jan 11, 2010

We are trying to use a BasePage class (which inherits from Page) to populate and set the Meta Keywords and Meta Description Tags. I am using masterpages and below is an example code extract... According to examples on the internet, I could then set this also via the Page Directive using the MetaKeywords and MetaDescription properties, but they do not appear.

I have tried setting the CodeFileBaseClass="MyNamespace.UI.BasePage" but this does not work either. Using debug I can see that the BasePage classes' MetaKeywords and MetaDescription properties are not being set within my content page. I can access the properties but not set them.

Web Forms :: Dynamic User Control And Setting Properties?

Jan 25, 2011

I have a user control (i.e. ascx) that comprises of two related list boxes (i.e. once you change the selected item in one list the contents of the other list update). I'm adding this user control dynamically to a page on the click event of a button (i.e. using LoadControl).I wish to set the list box datasource properties, as well as the default selected item of the parent list from my parent page so I created public properties in my user control to accomodate this. I also created an event in my user control that notifes the parent page when the selected item changes in one of the list boxes so I can update the contents of the other list box.

I understand that I have to recreate the user control on every postback in order for it to function correctly but I'm not sure exactly how I should be doing it. I've shown below what I have currently - whilst it works the problem is that on postback I'm always creating the user control with all its default properties and then updating the properties that need to change(?). For example, when the choice in theparent list box changes the datasource of the list box is set twice (once in AddControl and then again in OnParentChanged)? As the contents of the list boxes originate in a database it means I'm making unnecessary calls to the database (unless I do some something like store each unique set of data in the ViewState).

I'd be very grateful if someone could review how I've done things and illustrate how perhaps I should be doing things. I'm not sure if the way I've done this is considered the 'correct' way. For example there may be a better way of doing things would avoid setting the properties twice? I'm a bit unsure of the way I've set the datasource properties of the list boxes and bound them. I wished to set the datasource from the parent page because I might have a second user control on my page that may also use the same datasource and I could reuse it (as opposed to each control making its own call to the database) so I'd like to keep this feature if possible.It would be great if posting code in reply that you use my example as a guide so I know what you're referring to.Here's the code for my user control:



Here's the code for my containing page:

Web Forms :: Dynamically Load UserControl, Access Properties In Parent Page Without Recreating In PostBack

Nov 15, 2010

I have several usercontrols which are loaded based on business logic.However, all of them have webcontrols whose selected/entered value needs to be accessible in parent page on an event.Since there can be any combination of UserControls, I do not want to load all the UserControls in the Parent Page, since they are heavy.

I would like to load only those controls which are supposed to appear on the page, yet access the value from the usercontrol which caused the postback. (I would rather not access using Request.Form) (ViewState is open, but unsuccessful to store value in parent page's viewstate in onClick)Here is a sample scenario

Page: Home

Dynamically Loads: UserControls1

UserControls has TextBox tb and Button btn, causing onClick

When btn is clicked, I want to get value of tb in parent page on PostBack, Page creates UserControl2

Forms Data Controls :: Setting Properties On Web User Control In Dynamic GridView

Jan 7, 2010

I am in need of some assistance in regards to how to best set the values of properties for a Web User Control which is being included into a cell of a GridView with dynamically created columns. I have tried a few different approaches, but can't seem to get a satisfactory result. Also, to be completely honest, I am not really sure if I am using best practices for what I am trying to accomplish.

First off a little background:I have a GridView for which we will never know the exact number of columns at run time. The columns are predicated by user selection. I am creating the command text for the DataSet on the fly and then looping through the columns of the resulting DataTable in order to use custom TemplateFields. This works ok for just printing out the row values but not so much for when I need to insert the Web User Control into a cell.The Web User Control is in essence a collection of image links which are used as a "Quick Nav" tool. I need to pass the values of 2 fields from each DataRow to the control via properties (for example, CustID and ProductID). I am using custom TemplateField classes inheriting from ITemplate for displaying my fields and extending the DataBinding event like so: [Code]....

This won't work for my User Control as DataBinding is called after the control is loaded into the page and I need the properties to be set before the Page_Load event of the control is fired.Is there a GridView event I should be looking into instead such as RowCreated or RowDataBound? Or should I modify how I loop through the DataTable by doing rows first, then the resulting columns as I've seen done elsewhere?

C# - Where To Initialize The Usercontrol Properties Before Databinding?

Jan 10, 2011

How can I write the C# code (aspx) to initialize the user control with some default property values? I mean where/which event? I have a user control with a gridview that I bind on container page. On page load of the container page I bind the data. I tried writing the initialization code in initproperties but it didn't work. Please suggest where can I set the default values for my usercontrol?

Edited:As suggested by DOK.. I already have a property and I change width of one of the DIVs. Here is the code that is not working.

public int CollapsiblePanelWidth

this works only if I set the width on calling program. Otherwise the default value of style="width: 105px;" is not added.

Order Of Precedence In Setting Properties?

Feb 4, 2010

Some settings in asp.net like viewstate can be controlled at the site (web.config), page, or control levels. What is the order of precedence? What happens, for example, if I set viewstate of site and page levels but on at the control level?

Also, is viewstate for a control the same as control state? Furthermore, what events to use for loading and saving viewstate for controls (is this the same thing as control state?) and also for custom controls?

Similarly, which events should I use to render controls? Is this PreInit and Load? Is this the same for custom controls?

Setting Value In MasterPage From UserControl?

Feb 17, 2011

I have the following situation:

A MasterPage MyMaster.Master

A Content Page Content.aspx

A UserControl MyUserControl.ascx

MyUserControl.ascx is being used in Content.aspx and is being added programatically. The content page is using MyMaster.Master

MyMaster.Master has a variable which I can access from Content.aspx as I have the @MasterType directive set. What I am wanting to do is the following:

1) Set a value in MyUserControl.ascx

2) Access value from Content.aspx

3) Set value in MyMaster.Master

Step 2 is implemented in the PageLoad of content.aspx as follows:

Control ucControl= LoadControl("/UserControls/MyUserControl.ascx");
UserControls_MyUserControl myUC = ucControl as UserControls_MyUserControl; [code]....

The PreRender handler just sets a value in MyMaster.Master to true. In MyMaster.Master I check that value in PageLoad and try display something if it is true. This does not work.I suspect it has something to do with the Page Lifecycle, but I cannot seem to find which part is wrong.

Web Forms :: Creating A Nested Property In UserControl Or Multiple Child Properties In Parent Property?

Aug 2, 2010

Can anyone add a complete input about how to create Parent Property with multiple child properties or in short nested properties.

Example: Style tag: which has properties like font, color, display... etc? which accept objects and its value.


As soon as Rainbow property is typed, user should get intellisense for list of number of colors. Then accordingly user can select list of those colors and assign a value to them.
