Forms Data Controls :: DataBinding And DataBound FormView's Events?

Dec 27, 2010

I have a very simple form that contains a FormView Control Bound with a SqlDataSource, The DefaultMode of the FormView control is "Insert". I noticed that when I run the page for the first time, the databinsing and databound events of the FormView Control occurs after the PreRender Event of the page ! I know very well the life cycle of a page, but I dont know when the data binding occurs in the life cycle of a page and if it can differ from a control to another.

Is there an article or a tutorial explaining all those things.

Forms Data Controls :: Changing Data In A Gridview During Databinding Or After Databound?

Feb 2, 2010

im building a simple message messenger web application, i currently have a column in my database dedicated to the status of a message. Its bound to the third column in a datagrid.

After converting the column to a TemplateField and using a Label to fetch the data how do i change the text from the database to a small message, e.g. if the data in the database (as an interger) is 0. how do i change the interger to a string to display "UnRead". Do i need to do this during the databinding call or after the grid has been databound?

I know it would be easier to use a boolean and checkbox control but the interger column represents more values than true or false.

Forms Data Controls :: Formview And Databinding?

May 18, 2010

I am trying to bind a FormView on runtime in codebehind (instead of using predefined datasource).


GetCase will return a DataTable with just 1 row.Then on my aspx:

<asp:FormView DefaultMode="ReadOnly" runat="server" ID="FormView1" DataKeyNames="complaint_ID">
<asp:Label ID="lblComplaintID" runat="server" Text="<% Eval('case_ID'); %>" />

Forms Data Controls :: Excluding Subcontrols Of A FormView From 2-way Databinding?

Sep 3, 2010

So we use formviews all over the place that recently we've started putting user controls inside that have databinding controls inside them. In this instance it's a grid so

<dynamiccontrol DataField="name" />
<customGrid DataField="addresses">
<dynamiccontrol DataField="city" />

That's the basic sitch. We have the customGrid, a usercontrol, bind to a collection on the main DataItem, and it contains dynamiccontrols (DD4) in its column templates so stuff in the cells displays right. (in reality, the customGrid is inside a dynamiccontrol like all the other fields here and is loaded based on ui hints, I've just stuck it in the pseudo-markup here for illustration). This works a charm, up until you try and update the formview. At that point, the FormView grabs all the keys from all the dynamiccontrols in its edititemtemplate, including keys and values from dynamiccontrols insde the customGrid control. Obviously this doesn't work as those are for an "address" object or something, and the formview is bound to a "person" object. What i desperately need is a way, inside customGrid, to stop FormView from getting out all the dynamiccontrol keys and values inside it. Overriding DataBindChildren doesn't work, nor DataBind. I don't know at what point or how the FormView queries its instantiated template for all the 2-way databinding controls it has inside it, but if I could get at that maybe I could figure something out. Or else, if I could make the customGrid stop sending back all the values inside it.

I tried overriding the formview's OnItemUpdating but that only so much; I can remove entries from the e.NewValues collection if they don't exist on the DataItem, but that doesn't if your custom sub control is binding items with fields of the same name as your main dataitem. There must be a way to abort this 2 way databinding in the custom control.

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding To FormView Child Control Programatically?

Mar 2, 2010

I've got a FormView control for which I'm Viewing, Inserting and Updating to a MS SQL Database.

Instead of adding a SqlDataSource control to the page, I've created it in the code behind and declaring the properties/attributes for it during Page_Load.

At the moment, everything is bound and working fine, but I'm having an issue Databinding to the child controls in my FormView with parameters set in the code behind.

This is where I'm at.



So, I need to be able to bind the DS.InsertParameters.Add("PageTitle", ---) with the txPageTitle control in the Insert Template, same with the PageURL to txPageURL. Is there any easy way to do this from the code behind? I can't seem to find a way to add a parameter without needing to assign it a value.

Forms Data Controls :: Databound DDL Inside Formview When SelectedValue No Longer Exists?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a page that has a formview on it. Client info, name, address, usual stuff. The formview is populated by a DataSource, that calls a SQL stored procedure for the client info. It all works great.Within the formview, I have a dropdownlist for the Staff assigned to the client (StaffId is a member of the Client record called during the Formview binding). When the formview is in Item mode, the Staff name appears in a label, when in Edit mode, the dropdownlist
is bound and populated by another DataSource that calls a stored procedure of ActiveStaff. When the assigned staff exists, the StaffId is correctly bound to the DDL SelectedValue and the current staff name appears selected in the DDL when in edit mode, as it should.

Web Forms :: Formview Same Id For Controls Allowed Only If Databound?

Apr 5, 2010

I've got a formview with controls in different template views and I have a query just out of curiosity.

In my edit template I've got for example:

<asp:TextBox ID="IsPrestigeTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IsPrestige") %>' />
<asp:CheckBox ID="IsPrestigeChkbx" runat="server" />

and then the same code exactly in my insert template:

<asp:TextBox ID="IsPrestigeTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IsPrestige") %>' />
<asp:CheckBox ID="IsPrestigeChkbx" runat="server" />

However, the databound items seem to be allowed to have the same ID whereas the non-databound checkboxes arent.

What's going on there?

LoginView Inside FormView Control Is Not Databinding On PostBack?

Apr 20, 2010

I have a fairly simple form:


However, once the update is finished (and I call e.Cancel = true), the LoginView control does not databind its children... so they are all blank. The FormView's viewstate is still fine, as all the rest of the controls outside of the LoginView appear fine. I even handle the FormView_DataBound event and a Trace shows that the FormView is being databound on postback.

Why then is the LoginView not keeping its ViewState/being databound? Here's a sample code snippet showing the flow:

Populating A Listbox From SQL Server In Databound Formview

Oct 24, 2010

I am "trying" to switch my form from SqlDataSources to ADO.NET data sources. So I have a DAL setup, and ObjectDataSources in my form referencing these DALs. These data sources are bound to the form's objects. So far so good. In the InsertItem Template of one of the form's FormViews I have a list box that I am trying to populate with a value pair (ID, TechName) from a database table and I get the following error:
"Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control." Apparently, one of the two workarounds involves programmatically loading the listbox. The code below shows one of my attempts, resulting in the above mentioned error:

Protected Sub TestFillDefaultValueInFormView()
Dim vInspectorList As DropDownList
If (FormViewHydInspection.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Insert) And Not IsPostBack Then
vInspectorList = DirectCast(FormViewHydInspection.FindControl("DDlstInspBy"), DropDownList)
Dim vInspectorDA As New DataSetHydrantsTableAdapters.TechnicianTableAdapter()
Dim vInspectors As DataSetHydrants.TechnicianDataTable = vInspectorDA.GetTechnician()
Dim vInspRow As DataSetHydrants.TechnicianRow
Dim vInspectorHT As New Hashtable
vInspectorHT.Add("0", "Select Technician")
For Each vInspRow In vInspectors
If vInspRow.TechID <> 0 Then
vInspectorHT.Add(vInspRow.TechID.ToString, vInspRow.TechName)
End If
vInspectorList.DataSource = vInspectorHT
vInspectorList.DataTextField = "value"
vInspectorList.DataValueField = "key"
End If
End Sub

I tried populating the listbox directly using the Listbox.Items.add() method (which is the way I have it now so I could continue solving other problems, and it works!) but I could not find a way to add a value pair. I did try:

vInspectorList.DataTextField = "Select Technician"
vInspectorList.DataValueField = "0"
but that left a listbox without any data.

i have a FormView, it renders fields from a SQLServer database but also much static text specific to the database value I get. I dont know if this can be done in the code behind and put all this in a function . I put it in my formview

<% If Eval("Feature1") = "Yes" Then %>

<% elseIf Eval("Feature1") = "No" Then %>
<%# Eval("Username") %>

A lot of different text
