AJAX :: Dynamic Data - DropDownList Field Template With Cascading DropDown Extension?
Sep 10, 2010
Have spent hours trying to create a Dynamic Data Field Template holding a DropDownList which is extended by the AJAX Cascading DropDown extension.Final form holds multiple cascading dropdown boxes. User selects Country (Land) then Postcodes, Counties (Provincie) are populated. Once postcode is selected then towns (Plaats) are populated. The problem I am now facing is that the viewstate for the dropdown lists is not being saved/restored after an insert action or custom validation error. So basically the dropdown lists are being reset to their default values.Some code (if missing parts, just ask and I will post them) - Don't mind the code structures etc... needs some refactoring :)Attribute I created:
KlantMetaData (=> Klant is Dutch for Customer ):
DynamicDropDownList Control I created:
Dynamic FieldTemplate created for inserts:
I am new to using Ajax Control toolkit. I need to create a dynamic cascading dropdowns in which the no of dropdowns will be programatically decided. Also the last dropdown can be replaced with a listbox as well. how i can leverage the Ajax toolkit's cascading dropdown.
Setting up the editItem template of a gridview. I have a template field with a dropdown list for editing. When the gridview goes into edit mode the dropdown list is displayed with all the right options but the current value of the field (pre-editing) is not the selected value of the dropdown list? How do I make that happen? I have a couple fields where the editItem template will use a dropdown list and I'm sure a user will not realize those values have changed and they will just edit what they intended to edit and save the changes, inadvertently also making changes to other fields.
I have an ASP.NET/C# web project that uses an Entity Data Model and Entity Framework to interact with my database. I also have a DetailsView control that will serve as the control used to insert a new record. The user will need to be able to select from multiple, cascading dropdownlist controls to determine what parent record this new record will belong to. Here is an example.Say we have an online ordering system with the following hierarchy.
Customers -> Orders -> OrderParts -> Parts
We're going to add a new part to an order, under a customer. Ultimately the orderparts table won't have a reference to a customer, just an order. The order will have the reference to the customer. In the DetailsView for the new orderparts record we will need two cascading dropdownlist controls. One for customer and one for order, since we won't want to view some crazy amount of orders all in one dropdownlist.
However, the customer dropdownlist should not be bound to the detailsview control since there is no field for it. I also don't want to use the AJAX control since I don't want to create a separate web service to provide all of this information to the dropdownlist controls.
I have a gridview and basically at page load I want it to display with an empty row. The first field in the gridview would be a template field containing a textbox. I wan't to be able to type in, for example, a product code ('abc'). This would be the parameter for the stored procedure and then the rest of the columns (40+ additional columns) in the gridview would populate with the rest of the data pertaining to that product code (i.e. price, unit of measure, etc.). In short the template field texbox is the control to bind the gridview.
After the row is populated I could click a button or link that would add that entire row to my gridview and then add another empty row where I could enter another product code... populate the row then add that row to the gridview. and so on...
I'm trying to add an DropDownList to a DetailsView by code, because i'm writing a solution that let's the user select an table and view your records and edit them, some of theese tables, have a foreign key column and the user must have to select some item in the list.
Below is my sample code:
the code above is working correctly, when the user click in the buttons New or Edit , the DetailsView opens correctly, showing the DropDownlist, but when the user click in the buttons update or insert , an error occurs, the viewState cannot be loaded:
Failed to load viewstate. The control tree which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree used to save viewstate during the previous request. For example, when controls are added dynamically, the controls added during a post must match the type and position of the controls added during the initial request.
i am implementing a update query module.i am displaying all fields from a table for a term searched. well now i am implementing update option for the record which are displayed, i have like 70 columns in my table, and i want to know how to restrict some selected fields to be only read only while the form can be updated ?Like if user select to update a record then some selected field such as "Timestamp, UID etc some selected fields" remains READ ONLY !
I have a template field in a Details View which is a dropdown selection of values.While I can get the value of the textfields in the DetailsView by using: DetailsView1.Rows(i).Cells(1).Text.ToStringI don't know how do extract a value from a dropdownlist2 contained in the DetailsView.
I've been struggling with trying to figure out how to do this for about 2 weeks now. I have a DetailsView with several template fields in it. The first field (Unit_Code) is a dropdownlist item where the user would select a Unit based off the Unit_Code's Unit Name. Further down I have a field named (System), system needs to get it's value from the selectedvalue or selectedindex that the user selected in the (Unit_Code) dropdownlist. I have another dropdownlist item (Component) that will need to get the selected value from System to sort on, so once I have the first Unit_Code to System figured out I should be able to figure out the System to Component part seeing as it will basically be doing the same thing.
i have a gridview which consists of databounds and dropdownlist control. When I press the Add Grid Row Button, it will insert a row. Now my question is, if the user selected an item in dropdownList in the firstrow and the user click the AddGridRowBtn Again which will generate the 2nd row, how would i maintain the selectedItem in the dropdownlist after postback?
I have a gridview which is having coloumns Company name, Industry type, country, employees, revenue. i want to add dropdown at the top of each coloumn so that if user select industry as agriculture, all agriculture industry rows may be sorted, and same for other dropdown also.. i it may be possible,
I have grid view control that includes a dropdown control in a template field.I wish to execute some code when the value is changed in the dropdown list. Can't figure out how to capture this event though?
I tried cascading dropdown in asp.net using ajax. I have tried with 3 dropdown control. The scenario is First dropdown is loaded when page gets loaded and the second dropdown is loaded based on first is selected and thrid dropdown is loaded based on second one selected, now I want to know how do I load third dropdown based on first and second selected value...
Suppose parent dropdown is car (Values are car1, car2, car3)and its child is color(for car1 R Y G B, For car2 R Yand for car3 G B).Now on selection of car2 R and Y will appear and select R, then again made the change on car and select car3 then again select is comiing with G and B and select B.
Now if I select again in car, car1 then the child is populating with the values of car1 but it takes the B as a default value as it was previously selected and also present for car1 too.This case is only happen. on select of child value which is availble for both parent selection.
I am using Cascading Dropdown nad would be populating the values of the second dropdown from the session thats created when the page load.With the initial page load, the cascading dropdown works fine. But when I change the selection for the first one, the session values are not retained.

I have 2 dropdowns on my form for make & model.I want to populate the model dropdown using the make dropdown but without postback.Till nw I have tried this :-
