Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Auto Generated Textbox In Gridview?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a gridview which has autogenerate Columns Property "TRUE", and i'm dynamically binding this gridview with columns with sql database dataset. there is no data in sql but i am successful in showing blank gridview on form, now i want textboxes in gridview attached with each column, so i wrote code in RowDataBound which generates textbox automatically and assigns ID to each textbox, nw i want to insert that data from textbox to database but i'm not getting text which is entered in those textboxes, as i am accessing that textboxes using findcontrol and passing the id like gridview1_ctl03_text0. but i''m not getting any value from textbox?

In short i want to access auto generated textbox (with out any id predefined ) values from footer of gridview

To restrict the same I have hard coded a template field which holds that column, But as I have set the AutoGenerateColumns Property to true the gridview automatically creates a duplicate field for holding the primary key column. For which I want to delete that particular column.

My Designer Code is:-

Forms Data Controls :: Best Way To Auto-format Auto-generated Grid Columns?

Mar 9, 2010

I have a "database explorer" page that is desgined to be pointed to an unknown database and allow users to browse the data, so it basically uses the SQL system tables to develop its queries and pull in data to tables using auto-generate columns.The problem that I have is that I would like certain types of columns to have certain formats and I'm wondering the best way to go about it. I could format the column in code in the RowDataBound event I assume, but I'm wondering if there some better standard way to do this? Is there a setting of any kind that I can use? For example I want all of the datetime fields to be formated for short date, like {0:d}, I want decimal fields to have 4 decimal places, etc.

Forms Data Controls :: Validate A Dynamically Generated Textbox In A Gridview's Cell?

Jan 28, 2010

I have a gridview each line has 4 linkbuttons - Edit , Update , Cancel , Delete and a few columns with data...For example TeamName and TeamEmail, and a hidden column that contains a validator (for ease of validating controls that are found on the same row , same naming container)

When Edit button is Clicked , the specific line goes into editing mode , Texboxes are created for TeamName and for TeamEmail .

I create dinamically (code behind ) a new textbox that reads the value from the TeamEmail textbox , i give it a new id (let's say "Email") , add that email to the controltovalidate property of my validator , and call the validate() method of the validator.

Everything works fine when i modify the value in a worng format , the validator err message appears , when i modify the TeamEmail value to a good email format , the validator property isvalid becomes true , and the update is running , but my textbox is empty :( updating the TeamEmail value to null.

This is some bad code but hope you understand what i meant :

This is my html coed of my gridview


This is the code that manages the validation:

Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Textbox Elements In GridView

Jul 12, 2010

I have a Gridview X in which there are 6 columns(5 template columns that are text boxes and 1 bound field). The user has the option of changing the value in the text boxes annd saving them. There is one more GridView Y that displays DB values(all 6 columns are bound fields). Initially X will show the values that being shown in Y, and when user changes the values in Y,he should be able to save it. If we are trying this using OnTextChanged event of asp:Textbox, there is a postback everytime the user makes a change in any of the textboxes. Instead i want it such a way that all the changed values should get concatenated together and should be sent to the DB.

Forms Data Controls :: An Error Has Occurred Because A Control With Auto-generated Id?

Feb 25, 2011

Currently, I am programming a web-based application with Visual Studio.NET 2003, and having a problem with an err below :

An error has occurred because a control with auto-generated id 'dgPreventiveMaintenanceSchedule:_ctl5:_ctl3' could not be located to raise a postback event. To avoid this error, explicitly set the ID property of controls that raise postback events.

That err occurs while I am rendering my datagrid for certain data. In the other words, it occasionally happens.

I've been trying to debug one by one, but I still don't any clues for this kind of err.

Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Textbox Inside ItemTemplate Of Gridview?

May 17, 2010

I've been searching all day for a solution to this, but nothing has worked.

Here's my scenario: I'm binding the gridview to a datatable. One of the columns is a textbox that will accept user input.

When a "submit" button is clicked, I need to loop through all the rows, get the textbox's text, and add them all together. Simple, right?

I've tried the following (this is on the "submit" button's click event):


The itemtemplate looks like this:


The txtDays.Text property is ALWAYS empty. UNLESS I assign it a value w/in the control. But then it's ALWAYS that value. I need to get the value of what the user enters.

Type Of Data In GridView / Listview Bound - Template And Auto Generated Fields

Aug 18, 2010

Background: I'm populating lots of c# GridViews and ListViews from a database and subsequently users may export them to Excel. I want export as native Excel (not html). I can't use office automation, and I'm using JET which works fine. I have no control over users' machines. Question: When doing the export, you have to tell Jet what type each field is, in my case "text" (varchar) or "numeric" (double). The difference is that if you export a numeric column, the users can sum the data in Excel, where as strings are exported with a leading apostrophe and so are not much use in arithmetic.

Currently I parse the first data row of the Grid/ListView, check if each value is numeric or text, and assign a type to the column accordingly. That works, except for when I have something in the first column which looks numeric but in fact is a text string. I don't want to parse every row in order to be sure I have the correct data type as some of these exports are quite large. When I load the Grid/ListView from the database, the database certainly knows what type each field is. So my question is... how do I extract the type of the database item behind a a Grid/ListView item? I could explicitly code it as an attribute on the item, but that's duplicating information I already have, if only I can get to it. I know that where I have a DataTable then I can get the underlying type from that, but mostly I don't have tables handy, just the Grid/ListView. Note that Jet will throw if you try to insert an empty string into a nullable numeric column. The way to do this is to omit that column name from the insert statement, or output a zero.

Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Data Generated By A Repeater?

Apr 22, 2010

I have a repeater that dynamically generates the sum of integers upon a button click (a random number gets stored in an sql database). The sum works fine and I get the appropriate output, however I would like to grab the sum and put it back into my C# code so that I can perform operations with it (it's the accumalated score of a game of blackjack so want to check if they are bust etc.) Here is my code:

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" >
<label runat="server" > <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"a") %> </label>

How do i grab the DataItem "a" and put it back into my code?

Prevent HTML Encoding In Auto Generated GridView Columns?

Jan 30, 2010

I have a GridView bound to a DataTable that I construct. Most columns in the table contain the raw HTML for a hypelinklink, and I would like that HTML to render as a link in the browser, but the GridView is automatically encoding the HTML, so it renders as markup.

How can I avoid this without explicitly adding HyperLink, or any other, columns?

DataSource Controls :: Linq To Sql Auto Generated Value?

Mar 12, 2010

In a database table, let's say I have a non-null field named "Description" with a default value of (''). If I drag this table onto the .dbml view in Visual Studio and click on the Description field, the properties will indicate that the Auto Generated Value is set to false, thus ignoring my default value of (''). This is fine, as long as I always explicitly set a value for Description when I perform an insert/update, but I ran into a problem today when I tried to do an insert without specifying a value for Description: Cannot insert NULL value into Description. The default value I set for the field was being ignored. To try and fix this error, I went back into the .dbml and set Auto Generated Value to true, and tried again - no error this time, but the data I tried to insert was ignored, and the default value, (''), was inserted instead. I do not want to explicitly set every field to a default value programmatically when I perform inserts. Is there any other way to resolve this issue other than making the fields nullable?

Forms Data Controls :: DetailsView Accessing Textbox Through Code Behind?

Jan 25, 2010

I've been playing with a certain detailsview for most of last week. This particular control is located within a panel that is hidden until a user clicks a linkbutton on a gridview. Then the panel's visible property is set to true and the detailsview is populated based on the commandargument passed through the link button. What I've discovered is that with each postback, the datakey or control parameter, still not sure which or if both, is lost. I've discovered a lot about ViewState and how controls work and am a bit surprised that something as common as using a detailsview within a gridview wouldn't be handled better than it is now. I have been able to get the proper information to build a correct select statement when the user decides to edit a record. I am now working on an update statement, but for some reason while I have the right key to update the right record, I am unable to access the user-generated data that was entered in the details view.

For instance, I select record with ID of 1 in the gridview. It pulls up the detailsview and I can view it. I then click edit. The correct record is still there. (It was previously going to default). When I enter new text in a textbox and click update, the app still knows I am working with record #1 but doesn't seem to be able to find the textbox control. I have currently hard-coded a value into the field just to see if I could actually get the record to update and it did. I am using an OnInit to cause the sub to run and think this might be the problem. However, I have been unable to find a better way around this.

Here is the sub that executes on the OnInit() of the detailsview:

Protected Sub notes_binding()
If notesDetail.CurrentMode = DetailsViewMode.Edit Then
sqlNotesUpdate.UpdateCommand = "UPDATE [Oilchange_Notes] SET [notes] = '" & CType(notesDetail.FindControl("notes"), Textbox).Text & "' WHERE [vehicle_id] = " & Session("unitNumVal")
sqlNotesUpdate.UpdateCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.Text
End If
sqlNotesUpdate.SelectCommand = "SELECT * FROM [Oilchange_Notes] WHERE ([vehicle_id] = " & Session("unitNumVal") & ")"
End Sub

And this is the error I get: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. If I'm correct about why it's not pulling the actual value or even acknowledging the control exists and is actually 'notes' (it is), then at would point would be the best to place this code?
