Forms Data Controls :: Binding Repeater To List (of Abstract Class)?

Feb 18, 2010

I am attempting to bind a Repeater (but it could be a GridView or ListView) to a list of objects. The List's type is an abstract type, which has two different classes derived from it, both with different properties. Because they have different properties, I cannot just have one ItemTemplate. If I bind a control to a property of one type of class and the other type doesn't have it, it throws an error.

Here's where I'm at:

I cannot use <% if (whatever) { %> some stuff <% } else { %> some other stuff <% } %> because I cannot access the databound item to make the choice based on its type. I cannot use the <%# %> syntax, which lets me use the databound information, because you cannot code logic like if...then...else. I cannot (rather not) call a function and return a string with the code because what I want to render is complex and contains further nested databound controls. Has anyone found an ingenious way of doing if it is this type of object, display these controls, else display these other controls?

Forms Data Controls :: Binding A Repeater To A List Of Objects That Have Child Objects?

Nov 17, 2010

have some Objects, lets say Employee and Role defined as below and I have defined relationships in my database that gives me a list of objects say employees and thanks to my framework each employee object also has a Role object linked via the RoleIDID, UserName, Password, Email, RoleIDRoleID, RoleNameSo in code I can do something like this

Employee emp = dataService_GetEmployeeByID(1);
string RoleName = emp.Role.RoleName;

Now here is my problemI can bind any object in a repeater and it works fine for the first level in my relationship

For instance <%# Eval("UserName") %>

But I need to be able to show the details for my child objects as well (Role) so something like this (which does not work)

<%# Eval("Role.RoleName") %>

Forms Data Controls :: Binding To Checkbox In Repeater?

Jan 19, 2010

I have a couple of Checkbox controls in the Item Template of a Repeater and am trying to set them (checked or not) based on an underlying data value. With Labels the <%# Bind... > syntax can be used but there does not seem to be an equivelent for a Checkbox.

So I have moved into the code, specifically the ItemDataBound handler of the Repeater control but cannot seem to instantiate the Checkbox controls.

In the handler repProjectList_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e) I can instantiate the Repeater by casting sender or the RepeaterItem by using e.item and both have FindControl() methods but neither seem to find my Checkbox.

Further, once I am able to 'find' the Checkbox, I'm not sure how to reference the various values in the underlying data source.

C# - Binding A Generic List Of Type Struct To A Repeater?

Aug 19, 2010

I've had a bit of a problem trying to bind a generic list to a repeater. The type used in the generic list is actually a struct.

I've built a basic example below:


I then create two fruits using the struct (apple and orange). These fruits are then added to the list.

Finally, I bind the generic list to the DataSource property of the repeater...

The markup looks like this:


I expect to see the fruit name and price printed on the screen, separated by a horizontal rule.

At the moment I am getting an error relating to actual binding...

**Exception Details: System.Web.HttpException: DataBinding: '_Default+Fruit' does not contain a property with the name 'FruitName'.**

Forms Data Controls :: Binding To Checkbox Checked When Using A Repeater

Dec 20, 2010

i have a database of values that I am rendering in a table via the repeater control. (Previously I was using a gridview but I know require a repeater) I have a checkbox being 'repeated' for each record and I can get the id of each row to do some logic, but what I cannot get is whether it is checked or not as the value is null. As the database has no null values, I can only asume it is not binding for the checkboxes as current true values do not have a check in the box. The onCheckedChanged event carries out the logic required to change whether record is disabled via the database. With a gridview

Checked='<%# Bind ("Disabled")%>' was enough

is this done with the itemdatabound event? and how is it done?

Recommendations For Abstract Class Vs Interfaces?

Dec 21, 2010

From the following URL i got some doubts about the Recommendations for using Abstract class vs interfaces


1. If you anticipate creating multiple versions of your component, create an abstract class. Abstract classes provide a simple and easy way to version your components. By updating the base class, all inheriting classes are automatically updated with the change. Interfaces, on the other hand, cannot be changed once created. If a new version of an interface is required, you must create a whole new interface. { Is there any example for this t ounderstand throughly ?} If you are designing small, concise bits of functionality, use interfaces. If you are designing large functional units, use an abstract class. If you want to provide common, implemented functionality among all implementations of your component, use an abstract class. Abstract classes allow you to partially implement your class, whereas interfaces contain no implementation for any members. { Is there any example for this t ounderstand throughly?

Why do we use the reference of abstract class (or base class) to create object of it's sub-class. eg: TextWriter is the abstract class for StreamWriter & StreamWriter.

TextWriter writer = new StreamWriter();
