Forms Data Controls :: How To Datbind A Listview Which Is Inside Another Listview InsertItemTemplate
Sep 30, 2010
I try to datbind a listview which is inside another listview InsertItemTemplate.
I'm binding the listivew in the parent listview onitemcreated events. I receive the error Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.
want to find textbox inside InsertItemTemplate in listview there are two list view want to find textbox in the second listview that is inside listview i used that code but told me that there is error.
Dim lv As ListView = DirectCast(Me.FindControl("lv"), ListView)Dim lv2 As ListView = DirectCast(lv.Items(lv.SelectedIndex).FindControl("lv2"), ListView)Dim txt As TextBox = CType(lv2.Items(lv2.SelectedIndex).FindControl("txtCode"), TextBox)' If txt Is Nothing Then txt.Text = dr.AssetCode
I've googled around for a couple of days now and tried different solutions posted here and there, but nothing has worked so far. Therefore I'm forced to write a new thread about this subject.
I'm working on a solution containing nested listviews. The top listview lists different projects, and in each project a nested listview lists images from that specific project using a nested sqldatasource. Inside the nested listview I want the user to be able to add new images, and i'm using the InsertItemTemplate of the nested listview. When inserting a new image, the project need to be specified, as the project is a foreign key in my image database. The problem is that in my InsertItemTemplate, "Bind" and "Eval" does not work (I believe this is by design). Therefore, when adding the new image I don't have access to the project. I'm using the ItemInserting event of the nested listview to upload the image, and the optimal solution would be to have access to the project in this event and just pass it on as a parameter.
The Insert row in the ListView has an empty DropDownList and GetCountries() is not called. However, if I click the Edit button on an existing row, GetCountries() is called twice (not sure why) and the DropDownList is properly populated. Why isn't the InsertItemTemplate DropDownList getting populated?
I have a dropdown list in ListView control in InsertItem Template. I want to bind the DropDownList when I Click on Link. I want to bind it in CodeBehind not to use Datasource. I tryed lot but not finding the DropDownList. See My Code....
<InsertItemTemplate> <tr> <td colspan="7"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="7"> <table border="0"> <tr> <td> </td> <td> Sector</td> <td>:</td> <td align="left"> <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDnSector" runat="server" ></asp:DropDownList> <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator3" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" ControlToValidate="DropDnSector" SetFocusOnError="true" ValidationGroup="vgUpdate">* </asp:RequiredFieldValidator> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </InsertItemTemplate> lnkNew is my linkbutton outside the ListView Code Behind: Protected Sub lnkNew_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lnkNew.Click Try lvSubscription.InsertItemPosition = InsertItemPosition.LastItem lvSubscription.EditIndex = -1 BindDropDownList() fn_ShowSubscriptionLevel(fn_BindSubscriptionLevelEvents) Catch ex As Exception fn_ShowMessage(ex) End Try End Sub ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Protected Sub BindDropDownList() Try Dim objSector As IEnumerable(Of SystemBuilder.SystemBuilder_Sector) Dim objSubscriptionLevel As SystemBuilder.SystemBuilder_SubscriptionLevel Dim DDLSectorctrl As DropDownList objSector = CSectorDB.CSectorInstance().GetAllSector() If (lvSubscription.InsertItemPosition = InsertItemPosition.FirstItem Or lvSubscription.InsertItemPosition = InsertItemPosition.LastItem) Then DDLSectorctrl = CType(lvSubscription.InsertItem.FindControl("DropDnSector"), DropDownList) If DDLSectorctrl IsNot Nothing Then DDLSectorctrl.Items.Add(New ListItem("--Select--", "0")) For Each ObjRec As SystemBuilder.SystemBuilder_Sector In objSector DDLSectorctrl.Items.Add(New ListItem(ObjRec.SectorText.ToString(), ObjRec.SectorID.ToString())) Next End If ElseIf (lvSubscription.EditIndex >= 0) Then Dim DDLSectorctrl1 As DropDownList DDLSectorctrl1 = DirectCast(lvSubscription.Items(lvSubscription.EditIndex).FindControl("DropDnSector"), DropDownList) If DDLSectorctrl1 IsNot Nothing Then DDLSectorctrl1.Items.Add(New ListItem("--Select--", "0")) For Each ObjRec As SystemBuilder.SystemBuilder_Sector In objSector DDLSectorctrl1.Items.Add(New ListItem(ObjRec.SectorText.ToString(), ObjRec.SectorID.ToString())) Next objSubscriptionLevel = CSubscriptionLevelsDB.CSubLvlInstance().GetSubscriptionLevelDetailsBySubscrptionID(ViewState("ID")) If objSubscriptionLevel IsNot Nothing Then DDLSectorctrl1.SelectedValue = objSubscriptionLevel.SubscriptionID.ToString() End If End If End If Catch ex As Exception End Try End Sub
I am using a Listview with InsertItemTemplate bound to a LinqDataSource with a child table in the ORM datacontext. This table has a relationship with a parent table in the OR/M datacontext. The record is to be inserted in the child Table. The parent table is bound to dropDownList in the InsertItemTemplate to provide a user friendly name. Using the ListView ItemInserted event in debug, I can follow the execution and no errors occur BUT no record is inserted. I confirm this by a showing all Table Data in the SQL Mgmnt Studio. The child to parent table seems to be causing the problem because when I delete the relationship in the OR/M .dbml , I am ABLE to insert records. I am using Scott Mitchells' Using ASP.net 3.5 ListView with Data Pager controls: Inserting Data as a model. I can provide code if required, but what is going on with the deleting of the relationship between child and Parent.
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 am loading the autocomplete extender properly but I need the PK from the selectedValue. I have looked at other examples and they do NOT show how to drill into the tabcontainer, then drill into the listview, and then locate the extender value. Here is what I have so far. My "TABCONTAINER" value shows the extender correctly but I am unable to locate it.
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 have a ListView, I've setup to use an ObjectDataSource, I've created my Layout and Item templates, and I'm able pull and view a list of my data no problem. However I want to add delete capabilities to my ListView and my reference material tells me to go into the "Configure ListView..." option under the ListView's smart tag, the only problem is I don't have that option, the only three options in my smart tag are "Choose DataSource", "Configure DataSource..." and "Refresh Schema", what am I doing wrong?
I have anested ListView control. I also implemented a jQuery to automatically expand the TextBox control inside of the nested ListView Insert Template. The problem is, when the Textbox expand, the outer ListView control is not; therefore, the Textbox control expands underneath the buttons of the outer listView control. How do I expand the outer ListView control as the nested ListView textbox is automatically expand? One great example is in Facebook where if I add a response comment, it'll automatically push any comments below mine down. If nested Listview control is not the best way to do this, what are my options?
Does anyone have an example for how to create a Dynamically Templated Listview with prefernces page to specify which columns & column order)? Also the listview would also have Edit, delete and insert options if possible. And uses the n-tier approach with Bus Layer and does NOT use LINQ.
Is there any way to enable alternative ListView (LV2) or any other control in case when ListView (LV1) returns no records from DB? I already have emptydatatamplate designed for this case, but I need to enable a new ListView below in this particular case and I don't know how to achieve this!
I am having trouble finding how to solve the following issue :
I am using nested listviews to display Sales and Sales details.
The main ListView displays General Information about Sales and the child ListView displays the detailed information about one sale. the child listview is shown only when the user clicks on a link (see included code, DataBind is made on PageLoad) :
ASPX Markup Code :
C# Behind Code :
If I removed the datapager part, I can manage show/hide the child list view on the button click event. but if I want to use the DataPager with the PreRender event handling, the child listview is not longer shown on button click.
The form allows a user to create and edit one estimate.
Each estimate can contain multiple Jobs, which are represented in a ListView.
Each Job can contain multiple Parts, which are contained in a ListView that sits in each item of the Jobs ListView.
A user can add and remove as many Jobs as they want.
A user can add and remove as many Parts to/from each Job as they want.
I have no issues adding to each of these, but I do have a problem removing a single part from a single job.
For a reference, here is one Job in the Jobs ListView on the form:
I want to make sure that no matter what a user does, the part of the form they are working on saves what they have. Removing a row from that Parts ListView is no exception. What I want it to do is save the values in each of those textboxes and then delete the necessary row.
Here's what I have in the codebehind:
The EstimateRow variable I create does not get a value from theListView)HFERID.Parent.FindControl("LVEstimateRow") bit of code. There must be another level of nesting that I'm not accessing correctly, because it can't seem to find that nested ListView.
I have a datakey defined on my outermost ListView. When I click on a linkbutton in a row in this listview, the second listview is displayed. This inner listview has several controls and also a linkbutton. When I click this linkbutton, it gets handled by its own event; linkbutton_click. In this event all the data is collected from the innermost listviews' controls, and sends it to the database. The only thing I need within this event is the datakey from the outermost listview.
I have a ListView1 control that his <ItemTempleae> has a another ListView2. ListView2 is surrounded by <UpdatePanel> with trigger and also UpdateMode="Conditional". But, I don't know why ListView2 is not being update as it should, I need to refresh all the page to see the new data enter to ListView2 only. What is the problem? How can it be fixed? I think that the problem is something in the structure. There are about 10 ListView2 with updatepanel surronded them, so when I am looking to update a specific ListView2, it doesn't know which one to update because there are lots of them. What to do in order to solve that problem?
