Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist - - Loading Based On Another Control And Databinding It?

Dec 23, 2010

Bringing back to life an old post that I dont believe ever got solved: may be an old thread .... but no answer was ever given ... and I too have a radio button list and DDL and am stuck in the EXACT same place. If I check one of the two data bound radio buttons, the DDL should repopulate with a different set of results. This works just fine EXCEPT .... the DDL cannot be databound. If I set SELECTEDVALUE of the control to a bind I get this error:Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.I have followed the advice on this page from various users, all to no avail....surely this can be done, and I assume quite simply. Anyone know the answer?

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding A Dropdownlist Within A Gridview?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a gridview in which I have two drop downs. One is populated with values that are static, so I have a regular sub that does that in the code behind. I tried to add code for databinding the other ddl to a datatable. I cannot get this to work. It just comes up empty. My asp code is fine, and the datatable definately has data in it - just nothing gets populated.

One other thing - the code for the static ddl has worked fine, but when I add this other block (either to the same sub as that, or dow the rowdatabound event) the static one doesn't work either.

Forms Data Controls :: Updating A DropDownList In The GridView Using Databinding?

Mar 24, 2010

I am trying to create a Gridview in which I can update the Project Officer name in the Gridview from a DropDownList.

The Project Officer DDL comes from a seperate query (SqlProjectOfficerName) as the other information (SqlDataSource1)... as you can see below.

When I select EDIT, the DDL appears and I can select from the list of Project Officers, but when I select UPDATE, the name of the Project Officer doesnot change.

review the code below and assist as appropriate to write the Project Officer's name back to the table.

Forms Data Controls :: Remove Databinding Of DropdownList When Another Dropdown List Changes?

Aug 27, 2010

I have many controls on my form, but in particular, I have 2 dropdownlists. 1 dropdown list has 2 values, and each value controls what the second dropdownlist displays. This is an edititemtemplate and both dropdowns have the selecteditem set via '<%# Bind("fieldname") #>' on page load.

THe problem is, if I change the value of the first dropdown, it errors out because the second dropdwon has a bound value that is no longer acceptable.

Can I cancel the bind of the second control, if the the first one is changed? I would like to cancel the bind, and update the values by using a different datasource depending on the value of the first dropdown or hardcode the new values.

If Dropdown1 has a value of "A" for example Dropdown 2 Shows Values "1", "2", "3"

If Dropdown 1 has a value of "B" , Dropdown2 Shows Values "4", "5", "6".

It binds fine initially, but if I change Dropdown1 from A to B, I want Dropdown2 to show the new values, maybe with a default of "Select an Item" and not error out b/c it's attempts to bind a value of 1, 2, or 3.

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding Dropdownlist Added To Form Via Placeholder?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a formview that has several dropdownlists in the EditItemTemplate. Some of the dropdownlists are added using placeholders. I can add and populate their listitems without any problem. But when I update the record, none of the controls can be found--even though when I look at the page source they are there. I first strated out using asp:ControlParameter in my sqldatasource updateparameters, but even referencing the control as myform$mycontrol did nothing. So then I moved to code behind on the sqldatasource.updating event (code is attached). The only controls I cannot seem to bind to the update are those added via the placeholder.


The item at the dim statement is not an item added using a placeholder and does not get a null reference exception (I used that to prove during debbugging that I wasn't losing my mind)--however, all the items being used to get the parameter values are getting null reference exceptions and are added via placeholders. Here is the code I'm using to set up the dropdownlists:


how to get the value of these controls so they can be used in my update?

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding With Templated Used Control?

Jan 27, 2010

I've created a templated user control by following the example on the microsoft support pages. I won't post it all but the important part of the CS file looks as follows:


I'm not sure if the whole _CurrentDataItem business is required, I don't think so.The problem I've got, is that I've tried nesting it inside a FormView control so I can use it to display a record from a database. My ASPX looks like this:


Now, the bound properties (TitleText and TitleSubText) bind correctly, but the nested / template content is blank when the page loads. I'm not sure if this is something to do with the order in which everything is loaded or because I'm missing some code in the SimpleTemplate to get it to bind (etc.).

Forms Data Controls :: Paging Repeater Control In Databinding?

May 3, 2010

I have a strange problem. I have made a PagedRepeater control, which inherits from the Repeater, from a tutorial I saw here: It's in VB and I'm in C#, and it didn't quite have all the features I was lookingfor, so, I've modified it quite a bit. I added support for a SqlDataSource control, as well. The only problem is, that it always returns the first item from the SqlDataSource, even when the CurrentPageIndex on the PagedDataSource is set to a different value.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Implement A Custom Control That Supports Two Way Databinding

Nov 8, 2010

I'm trying to implement an ASP.NET DataBoundControl that supports two-way databinding. Unfortunatelly I can't find any documentation on how to do this on the web and even Dino Esposito in his ASP.NET 2.0 Advanced Topics only handles one-way databinding (also the contact form on his blog isn't working). Can anyone provide me with documentation or samples on how to do this?

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.

I have a composite control inside a repeater. I am trying to set the controls public properties inline like so (this is a simplified example):

When I place the repeater inside a user control INSIDE ANOTHER user control and onto the page this works - the property is correctly set, if I inspect it inside the EnsureChildControls() method of the custom control the composite control's Value propertyis set to Eval("value") as intended.

Oct 11, 2010

I have a webForm which host a gridview and a formview. The formview is used for showing/editing a record which the user Select from the gridview.

Forms Data Controls :: Dynamic Gridview With Dropdownlist / Dynamically Set The List Values Based On Parameters (of The Row They Are On)

May 28, 2010

I'm new to web dev and c# so please bare with me. I am trying to create a dynamic gridview in a web form for users to to answer questions with (code below).

The dificulty im having is that i am nesting a dropdwonlist in the gridview and want to be able to dynamically set the list values based on parameters (of the row they are on). These values are in the main dataset for the gridview as each row represents a questionid and question text and then a ddl for the criteria...

I just don't know how to set the values for the dropdown all the code so far is below... just need to be able to populate the dropdowns with the relevant values.

I have created a stored proc to return the different criteria based on the questionid and questionGroupid which is the dataset that populates the other fields in the gridview: dbo.usp_QuestionCriteria @QuestionGroupId, @QuestionId

I have added this as a tableadapter called criteriaTableAdapter in a xsd file as well using the wizard... not sure if this is the right option though or just use the same method as i have for the other stored procedure as in the code below:

Forms Data Controls :: Gridview-Calculate Value Based On Formula That Varies Dependent On Selected Code In Dropdownlist?

Jul 2, 2010

GridViewDetails uses templatefields. In edittemplate I put a button called "ButtonUpdateAdjustAmount" with OnClick="Update_AdjustAmount" in the EditItemTemplate for the "Amt to be Adj" column. There is also a textbox. My user's should be able to edit the textbox, but I also want the ability to click the button and the textbox populated with the correct calculated value. The formula varies based on the "code" column which is a dropdownlist called "DropListCode".

I am fairly new to, vb, forgive my code writing. Eventually I need to also put the same functionality on the insertrow for my gridview. But first wanted to get the edit one working. I am using templatefields for all columns and the FooterTemplate to perform the Insert New Detail Line.

I can get the functionality to work for the first data row and only if I take out the If code.SelectedValue = ... line and leave 1 static formula. However that isn't going to work. If DropListCode.SelectedValue is DNR then AdjAmt should be ((q_ordered - q_received) * cost). If DropListCode. SelectedValue is OV then AdjAmt should be (RKNumber * cost). If DropListCode.SelectedValue is NB the AdjAmt should be ((q_received - q_ordered) * cost). If DropListCode.SelectedValue is DAM then AdjAmt should be (RKNumber * cost)

txtPatietType and txtInpatientType are both ReadOnly. txtInpatientType.Visible = false by default.
