Forms Data Controls :: Make Label Visible Inside Formview?
Jan 20, 2011
protected void FormView1_ItemInserted(object sender, FormViewInsertedEventArgs e)
// Here I want to make a label "Saved" visible after user inserts the record into the formview.
// the label is in InsertItemTemplate of the formview next to Insert and Cancel Links. It is invisible by default.
// Is this the right event that i am in to do something like this.. if there is any other way to do this,
I have two formviews that I want to use together. I want the second formview to become visible based on a value in a textbox in the first formview using the item_inserted event of the first formview. How would I do this? What is the best way? Can I use the Ctype function?
I have a label inside a formview that is not bound to anything.
Lets say I have a table of customers (with a key field called CustomerID), and then another table that has all their orders (with amount spent per order (OrderID) - based on CustomerID)
On the FormView there is a key field (CustomerID) (this is to be used as an INPUT parameter to a SP - which is to return the SUM of all the customers (Order_Totals). I could nest a view within a view I suppose to get this result, however, I just want a label to simply show this ScalarValue.
Basically, I want the label to show the aggregate (SUM) total amount each customer has spent on all orders. I have a SP called SumCost with two Fields (one a grouped by field CustomerID and the other a Summed Total of each customer's orders SumCost)
SELECT [SumCost] FROM [SumCost] WHERE ([CustomerID] = @CustomerID)
I test my SP and it works great, returning the value based on CustomerID - no problem.
My problem is getting the CustomerID passed into the SP on runtime (do I put it in FormView2_Databound) and putting the value into the label (CustTotalLbl) which is inside this form.
I placed an invisible label inside a multiview control. I have a button in which its codebehind does the following:a- Show a particular viewb- Make the label visible After clicking on the button, the specified view is shown but the label stays invisible.
I have created a custom control that implements Templates (based on Panel controls) ... I can do a FindControl to locate imbedded controls. This allows me to get and set values in the imbedded controls, but I want to be able to reference the imbedded controls like they are properties of the associated panel. Here is a sample of how my custom control now works:
I can do the following (where my custom control has given the panel hosting the template the name "myPanel"): Dim txt As TextBox = myCustomControl.myPanel.FindControl("myTextBox") txt.Text = "Some text to put in TextBox"
What I want to do is:
myCustomControl.myPanel.myTextBox.Text = "Some text to put in TextBox"
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 a template field in datagrid. The field shows in insert mode. I do not want to show it because it is a thumbnail to an attachment. The regular bound fields have a setting "Insert Visible" which could be set to false - that is supposed to hide them in insert mode. The template field has no such thing. I have even tried to put Insert Visible = False in to the source but to no avail.
My definition of the template field looks like this:
I've got a formview that does a simple 'SubTotal' calculation based on some checkbox inputs. I write out the subtotal to an asp:label control. I want to be able to also be able to write that value into the QueryString so I can carry it over to another page. I can't seem to access the label from my codebehind (intellisense doesn't find it). I assume I'm not making the correct reference to the formview label control, but I don't know how to go about getting at it.
I have a formview containing an insert template. One of the fields you can insert is a multiline textbox. When i update or insert, i write the value to an SQL database. The next time i edit the record, everything shows up in the multiline textbox as it was when i inserted it. This includes the newlines(or break rules, or whatever you call it in english) i've entered.
For my itemtemplate, i want to use a label to represent this value. But when i do so, it doesn't use newlines, it just puts the text in one line.
How does the multiline textbox save these 'new lines' to the database? and how can i retrieve them when using a label?
I have a Gridview with some template columns. Inside one of the columns, I have a ImageButton with a serverSide OnClick handler to show or hide a panel. And all the panels by default are hidden. What happens is that when I click the imageButton the first time the panel gets displayed, but if I click the same button, on the same row again, - where the panel is now visible - the panel doesn't hide itself. Here's what happens when the imageButton is clicked:
I like asp:FormView because it gives me a flexibility to display a single record with an image, link and Paging on the bottom. And its very easy to databind to sql db table. But my question: is there any way to make FormView to change RECORDS automatically lets say every 5 sec. - Slideshow style?
In web config file I have add key values specified.
In the formview I have labels on edit , item and insert mode that I want to display all the time by getting those values from web config. I'm able to do that with no problem but when I change the modes between edit to insert or item view, I lose those label values until I hit the "select" twice from the Gridview, those values re-appear. Below is the snippet of the code. What do I need to do to retain the category values all the time?
