Forms Data Controls :: How To Control The Dropdown Which Is Inside FormView EditItemTemplate
Jan 27, 2010
How to write code in vb.net to control the Dropdown which is inside FormView EditItemTemplate. FormView named "frmFaultsReg" DetailsView named "lstStatus" Actually what i want to do that there is a textbox inside FormView EditItemTemplate and ItemTemplate to insert Closing date. lstStatus has a value PENDING and CLOSED. If a user select CLOSED from lstStatus then the date textbox named "ClrDateTimeTextBox" should show current date time and to insert into database and if user again selects PENDING from lstStatus then the date textbox should show empty. I think the postback of lstStatus should work but lstStatus is inside the FormView thats why I am unable to hook it.
I have a formview which binds to a table where one of the fields is an integer zip-code field. I want to pad the zip with a leading zero in the edit template when the zip is something like "02134". How do I edit the bound data without "breaking" the two-way binding?
I wrote simple function to add the zero and return a string:
Public Function padZIP(ByVal zip As Integer) As String Dim tmpStr As String = CType(zip, String) If tmpStr.Length = 4 Then tmpStr = "0" & tmpStr Return tmpStr End Function
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 have a formview with an insert item template. I have added two dropdown controls that are databound to two different database tables to this insert template. However, when I click the 'InsertQuery' for the Accessdatasource neither of these controls are available as 'Parameter source options'.Out of interest, if I take these dropdown controls out of the formview and put them on the page they then become available to use.
I have a formview in which I have a dropdown list that displays a list of owners. In case the list does not have the correct owner for the user I have added functionality for them to add a new owner to the database table that populates the list. I did this by including a textbox and an Insert button in a panel. When the user clicks the new owner insert button I would like to re-databind the dropdown list so that they will see the owner they added and be able to select it.
When I add ddl_owners.databind to my button click code it gives me an error. "Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control."
I don't want to re-databind the entire formview because then it deletes all the information on the form that the user has already keyed in.
I'm attempting to load DropDownLists from the C# codebehind as the FormView switches modes to Edit and displays the EditItemTemplate. I present the data in a FormView ItemTemplate using text boxes. When the user selects Edit, I have been attempting to load the EditItemTemplate dropdownlists by creating a dataset and binding it to the control, without success.
I've successfully loaded them in previous projects from within the .aspx code using <asp:ListItem> and within the C# code behind using Control.Items.Add(new ListItem), which are essentially the same thing of course . This project is different in that I want to get the data from a stored procedure on a MSSQL server.
In my latest attempt, I can see the data in the datasets. I'm getting "Error connecting to database.'eitRace' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.Parameter name: value"
I include the code below. If someone could point me to an example I would be greatful. There has to be an elegant way of accomplishing this.
I want to dynamically populate data in Dropdown box in the Edititemtemplate of the Listview. The below code is showing error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". The problem is in Findcontrol function. How to solve this.
When i Updating my gridview and i modify the value of dropdown the update is all ok, but if i not modify the dropdown and leave the selected value after the update i see another value, the first of listitem of my dropdown.
This is my code:
Sub GrdUpdate(ByVal sendere As Object, ByVal e As GridViewUpdateEventArgs) Dim ID_ricette, NomeRicetta As String Dim NomePortata As DropDownList Dim NomePortataSel As String If Not e.NewValues(0) Is Nothing Then ID_ricette = e.NewValues(0).ToString NomeRicetta = e.NewValues(1).ToString..........
I have a gridview and I do Add, Modify and Delete operations. I am comfortable adding and modifying any text or date value. Now, I have a dropdown list to be displayed. I need to add and modify. The contents in the dropdownlist is fixed. Below is the code. I know there is a problem in my
I have a gridview and it has two EditItemTemplates. I want to update the items inside the second dropdown (EditItemTemplate) when I select an item from the first dropdownlistbox (EditItemTemplate). I want to update dropdownlist2 when I select an item from dropdownlist1. How can I do this?
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 Have the gridview control with 2 dropdown list and 2 text boxes,When the textbox chnaged event happen 1 row will create and the dropdown back to initial values( its not retaining the selected values),I am binding the control after text changed method,Is there any properties needs to be set or any other way we can retain the values in postbacks?
To insert a new product to table [Products] in DB i have a formview. The formview includes a DropDown list taken from foreign table called [Status]. The table [Status] includes fields ID and Status (Status values are: Inn, Out, Damaged).
When i choose from the DropDown i want the textvalues from Status to be displayed (so far im good) but then i want the [Status.ID] to be inserted in [Products.Status_ID] so the cell value will be 1, 2 or 3. This because [Products.Status_ID] is the foregin key to [Status.ID] so that i have the ability to sort products after Status value later.
But do i really need that foreign key? Do i just complicate it further by doing it this way? Perhaps Status could just be a regular string with no foreign key...?
I have DataList control and I want to assign to it's edititemtemplate some User Control. The problem is I can't find when I should databound UserControl to data, as my UserControl doesn't have static look (it renders different depending on some property values and datasource).
