I am having problem to do a 2 way binding with DropDownList inside DetailsView, my markup declaration is:
But I am getting the following error messages on the line ddlCategoryId.DataBind(): ArgumentOutOfRangeException: 'ddlCategoryId' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.sometimes I get different error: InvalidOperationException: Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.]
Two ddl inside gridview. on selecting first ddl1 fill next ddl2 by passing selected value as parameter by executing the sqldatasource select command in codebehind.code:
GridViewRow gr = (GridViewRow)((DataControlFieldCell)((DropDownList)sender).Parent).Parent; //find the control in that DropDownList d1 = (DropDownList)gr.FindControl(ddl1); DropDownList d2 = (DropDownList)gr.FindControl(ddl2); SqliaDataSource.SelectParameters.Add("@name", d1.SelectedItem.Text.ToString()); dataView dv=(dataview) SqliaDataSource.select(DataSourceSelectArguments .Empty); Error: There is no source code available for the current location. and Returns null value
I use DetailsView to insert rows in database. Row has fields id, subcategory_id etc. I want to fill dynamically dropdownlist ddl_subcategories, which is used in TemplateField. Selected item value of first dropdownlist ddl_categories is used as parameter for generating collection for ddl_subcategories. I try it with using UpdatePanel, but method DataBind returns error "Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.".
CS0030: Cannot convert type 'string' to 'bool' However, if I use it one a Label it works fine: <asp:Label ID="lblIsPaid" runat="server" Text='<%# Convert.ToBoolean(Eval("is_paid")) ? "True" : "False" %>'></asp:Label>
So another trial I did was to CAST the data from the database to be the text that I want, like so:
SELECT not_paid = CASE WHEN is_paid = 0 THEN 'True' WHEN is_paid = 1 THEN 'False' END ....
System.InvalidCastException was unhandled by user code Message=Specified cast is not valid.

So I wonder, is it possible to change the "Enabled" property based on by boolean value?
I'm trying to bind both GridView and DetailsView to a single ObjectDataSource declaratively (in markup). I'm getting the error read as below when I tried to run it.
"The DataSourceID of 'DetailsView1' must be the ID of a control of type IDataSource. A control with ID 'ReservationsDataSource' could not be found."
It works when I bind GridView and DetailsView each seperately to my ObjectDataSource. Is it I can't bind two pagable data web controls to a single datasource?? or there is a trick needed to be done for this to work.
FYI, I'm trying to create a Master/DetailsView of my data. DetailsView of my application should show the record selected in GridView and it should be editable.
I am currently binding my Detailsview and Gridview together by a "ID" field selectedvalue "1". Which works great except for the fact that I don't want the user to have to go down to the gridview and select the page and then the record to view it in the detailsview.
I have 1 sqldatasource for detailsview and another sqldatasoure for the gridview. Both have the exact same select statement.
I want the gridview and detailsview to automatically display the last record inserted not the first record in the table.
I have a bound field in a DetailsView that I want updated with the contents of TextBox2.Text when I update. I have TextBox2 set AutoPostBack True. Cannot remember how to move the contents on update. I tried converting the "Description_Update" to a template field without success.
I can copy and paste the contents of TextBox2 into the DetailsView and it does update as do the other DataFields.
I have a details view in asp.net which I am dynamically replacing some of the controls using code behind (e.g. converting some text boxes to dropdowns). My problem is that I am unsure how to bind these to the field from the database on postback. I.e. I am trying to find the code behind equivalent bind('currency');
I can populate the dropdown with the current value from the database but cannot find how to save a new value on updating the detailsview.
I have a DetailsView (DV) control, an ObjectDataSource (ODS) control, and a button on a page. I have 2 classes in the App_Code directory (Customer and CustomerDAO). The DAO class provides static methods for the ODS control and simply hack values in (ie...no real database selects/updates). The Customer class has 2 properties (Id and Name) and a default constructor. The page takes an ID on the querystring and determines if the DV control is in insert or edit mode. If in edit mode, it sets the SelectParameter on the ODS (id field), calls ODS.Select(), and then calls DV.DataBind(). The existing (although fake) customer is loaded and display properly when this happens. I then change the name of the Customer in the DV and click the Button to save the new data.
Everything seems to be wired up correctly as the UpdateMethod that is specified in the ODS control is called and succeeds (even in my real example with my database). The problem is that the BoundFields in the DV control have not been updated with the new values and therefore the existing values are updated in the database and my changes are lost. I have handled the OnUpdating event of the ODS and the values are still the old values. I have also handled the OnItemUpdating event of the DV control and the NewValues IOrderedDictionary still has the old values in it also. In looking at the MSDN article for the UpdateMethod, it states the following:
Parameter Merging Parameters are added to the UpdateParameters collection from three sources:
From the data-bound control, at run time. From the UpdateParameters element, declaratively. From the Updating event handler, programmatically.
I am using the BoundField classes in my DV control so I would have assumed that the first bullet above would have handled the updating of values, but it doesn't appear to work with the way I am doing it. If I set the values explicitly in the OnUpdating event that is fired by the ODS control (the 3rd bullet) the right values are updated (again...even in my real database situation). It seems like my only issue is that the automatic binding that I expect from the DV control isn't working as I would expect it to. Here is the code that I have in my fake example:
How do i use drop down list in the details view? While inserting user should be able to select the "Car Name" from the drop downlist and the "Car Id" should be get inerted into database. Also while editing the appropriate Car Name should be selected in the drop down list.
How the HTML code and the Binding should look for this details view ?
When the FormView is in Edit mode, ddlCategory is populated as expected by calling GetCategories(), which returns a List of categories. However, when the ListView is in Insert mode, ddlCountry is empty. I put a break point in GetCountries(), but it never gets called. If I change the name of the method, I get an error. So it recognizes the method at compile time, but does not call it at run time. I'm guessing this is an embedded binding issue of some kind, but I'm hoping someone can save me a lot of time by pointing out the solution.
I need to set the "Text" property of a label inside a gridview using, I know how to set the label using static value and I also know how to set the label using the "Bind" keyword but I want to do both, something like this:
I have an UpdatePanel with a GridView. This GridView has a template column that is a DropDownList. The problem is that the SelectedIndexChanged event does not fire for the DropDownList. Here is the code:
I have a listview that is showing its result by using a linq query. The linq query goes like this.
* db.Varer: Varer is a table that contains basic product information like proudct name, product nr. etc. ** a.fk_kategori_id == CatParamId : I'm just saying limit the result according to the Category ID (a.fk_kategori_id). The category id is coming from a dropdownlist (CatParamID) *** Join: Besides the Varer (Product) table I also have another table, Sizes. This Sizes table contains 6 columns (ID_Sizes (int) primary key and the columns: OneSize, S, M, L, XL, XXL all are bit (true or false)). There is a relationship between Varer table and Sizes table. It says that I can only insert a value into the "fk_sizes_id - column" of varer table if that value already exists as primary key within the Sizes table. **** I'm starting by picking basic product values like productId, ProductName etc from the Varer (a) table ***** Then I'm picking the corresponding Sizes values (onesize, s, m, ...) from the Sizes table. Now within my ListView I'm showing the above result by using Eval, like this.
And this works perfectly, but now comes the thing that is causing me trouble. I have the below drop down list (still within the ListView ItemTemplate):
I want this drop down list to be populated with only those of the "linq query's Sizes table result" that are true. By "Sizes table result" I mean these
I am trying to use a DropDownList in a DetailsView for the ItemTemplate, InsertItemTemplate, and EditItemTemplate. I must bind this DropDownList to a SQL-Server support table using a function that returns a DataTable. I am not allowed to use a SQLDataSource in my backwards IT department. So, not only do I need to load the DropDownList, I also need to make the SelectedValue equal to the current record that I am viewing, editing.
I figure that this should be relatively straightforward, but I still can't get it to work. I have a gridview and a detailsview to set up shifts for students and teachers. I would like to be able to insert new shifts using a detailsview. I will limit the students, teachers and location to items that are in a dropdownlist. The problem is that when I handle the iteminserting event. the e.values collection doesn't contain all of the fields I want to populate. How do I add the new fields to the list. This is my codebehind:
Sub On_Inserting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DetailsViewInsertEventArgs)
I have a databound label control (i.e. Label 3) inside an Item Template that's in a DetailsView control. I just need to get the value of those label and compare it to some string. I tried several ways (i.e. Find control, DetailsView.Row) but nothing seems to work. I don't know if I'm using the FindControl methos correctly or if I need to access the Row first and do the findcontrol method.
