Forms Data Controls :: Populating Listbox From Textbox And Dropdownlist?
Feb 1, 2011
1. textbox (Search for staff)
2. Dropdownlist( Search for department)
3. Listbox( Populate staff name based on textbox or dropdownlist)
I am able to populate the staffs indenpendantly according to what is written in textbox or dropdownlist. Whar i wanted to do is mix the population of staffnames from textbox and dropdownlist. In other words, when i search "sandra' in textbox and select a Department A , the listbox will show all the sandra from Department A only.
Protected Sub gvPunches_RowEditing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewEditEventArgs) Handles gvPunches.RowEditing Dim i As Integer = e.NewEditIndex() Dim ddl As DropDownList = CType(gvPunches.Rows(i).FindControl("ddlDiv"), DropDownList)
the question I have is when i enter this procedure in the code behind, ddl is nothing. what am I doing wrong in populating the dropdown for the row I am editing?
I have one dropdownlist and textbox which is databinded and will display retrieved data on a listbox, i wanted to clear the textbox and dropdownlist using a button after displaying data on the listbox.
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?
On my formview I have a drop down list that is populated with the names of the files in a certain directory. This works fine, but when the drop down list selected value is bound to the database field I get the following error :
'ImageFileDropDownList' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items. Parameter name: value
I have setup other drop down lists in the same formview populated from SqlDataSources and these all work fine. I can see perhaps why this is an issue because I have not specified a DataValueField or a DataTextField for this drop down that is populated in code (whereas I can for the SQL bound ones) because I'm not sure what these settings would be.
I need to have a "blank" option as well so that the field does not default to the first value in the list.
My code (I have stripped out some meaningless controls) :
I have a ListView that I need to populate a dropdownlist while rendering. For each rown in my table has a field called sizes which has data that looks like this "blue; red; yellow; green", I need to render a dropdownlist in the ItemTemplate with these values, I tried placing a PlaceHolder but I don't know how to populate it. I have tried to populate it OnItemDataBound and OnUnload but neither seem to work.
during edit mode i populate the drop down in question with data based on a value selected in another drop down also in the gridview, all works find, but the paramater is not being updated with the selected value, i think this is because i do not call any Bind in the aspx side.
I am drawing a blank and need some direction.I am putting together a simple website that has a single DropDownList that is DataBound to table inside of a FormView Template.What I want to happen is when the page loads, it runs the SELECT statement and displays that result(which it does, so that part works).Where I am stuck is that if I Click the DropDownList and select another item, and display the results of that selected item in the associated Databound controls.My code is below;
I have a dropdownlist in EditItemTemplate and InsertItemTemplate which I want it to populate at the runtime while Inserting an item or Editing an item.
I am facing an issue regarding populating a dropdownlist dynamically while in Edit and Insert mode. There are 0 Records in my table and it shows "Empty Data message" in my Listview control. Even the ItemDataBound event does not fire. So I am not able to find the dropdownlist in that listview.
This is my Aspx code which shows only InsertItemTemplate and EditItemTemplate.
I have a Gridview that has a template field containing a bound textbox (fieldname is 'Status'). I have an extra column containing an update button, which is designed to update the db with whatever is in the textbox.
What's happening is that when I load the form, the textbox is blank, even though there is existing data in the fields. If however I click the update button, all the textboxes in the Status column update and populate with the correct data from the database. I guess my question is why would bound textboxes not populate until an update command is run?
I need to create a TemplateField column dynamically , which will contain dropdowlist controls. I've been using this example to create my first dynamic columns and for the last column, the one that contains dropdowlist controls, I've written this class:
But what I don't know is, where should I populate the dropdownlist control?
i am poupulating data from database which was saved using Rich textbox in vs2003 into a text box in Vs2005.But,i had problems when the data is populated.I am seeing some ascii characters as textbox doesn't know how to present formatted data.
I read your article on ASPSnippets and everything worked great. I am having one problem and this is preventing me from moving forward. When I select the edit for a row (I only have two columns), the drop down comes back blank (no records). I have looked at the code multiple times and can't see where I made a mistake. is it possible to control the width of the drop down list? I can't tell if the column automatically adjusts because I am not returning any records.
using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq;
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 3 dropdownlist controls for use with capturing birth dates. One captures the month, the next the day and the next the year. Rather than having to use 3 different xml files to populate the controls I want to be able to use just 1 xml file, but I haven't been able to work things out. I thought this would work:
I thought I'd be able to assign the datatextfield of month, day or year to a given control, but this isn't working. They show up in the datatextfield dropdown in properties, but when I try to view the page in a browser I get an error that tells me the field (i.e., day) does not exist. Is there a way I can accomplish this? I am developing an ASP.NET 2.0 site in VS 2005.
I have one table which contains branch codes(primary key), Branch name and bank name columns. I have 3 dropdownlist boxes. the first dropdownlist is for the branch codes. When i select the a branch code i need the second dropdownlist box to populate with the appropriate branch name and the third dropdownlist box to populate the bank name at the same time.
Is it possible to have one table like mine and acheive this, if so how do i go about doing this?
I did read up on this but only came across ones with 3 tables.
I am trying to populate (store) an access database with the information from a DropDownList.
At the moment i have a form where the user inputs data into a textbox and on sumbission it adds to the access database. I am unsure how to add data to the database from the selections choosen in the DropDownList. I have a DropDownList for Title e.g. Mr,Mrs,Ms,Miss.
I have provided the code that populates the database from the TextBox's
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:
Code: Protected Sub TestFillDefaultValueInFormView() Dim vInspectorList As DropDownList If (FormViewHydInspection.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Insert) And Not IsPostBack Then vInspectorList = DirectCast(FormViewHydInspection.FindControl("DDlstInspBy"), DropDownList) vInspectorList.Items.Clear() 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 Next vInspectorList.DataSource = vInspectorHT vInspectorList.DataTextField = "value" vInspectorList.DataValueField = "key" vInspectorList.DataBind() 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 am designing a program that will let me enter the name of an item to swap and adds the swap to an array list when a button Add is pressed. Once the item is added to the array list a Sub Procedure should be called which displays the contents of the array list in a list box.
The system will also allow me to remove items from the array list using a Remove button
followed by updating array list.
I have done some part which puts item into the listbox1 which i named lstSwapList.I would need some assistance on the Sub Procedure to display the Value or Description on the other listbox2 which i have also named lstContent,if a value is selected from the listbox1.
I would also want to know how to update the Listbox content,However i hv added a sample of the way i guess it may be.
Any complete solution from anybody on the Sub Procedure and the Update Swap procedure will be greately appreciated.
﻿The script below is what i have done so far.
Partial Class _Default Inherits System.Web.UI.Page Protected Sub lstContent_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lstContent.SelectedIndexChanged End Sub Protected Sub lstSwapList_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lstSwapList.SelectedIndexChanged End Sub Protected Sub btnAddSwap_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAddSwap.Click Dim SwapValue As String = "Sixty Pounds" Dim Counter As Integer = 8 Dim SwapN0 As Integer lstSwapList.Items.Add(SwapValue) lstSwapList.Items.Add(Counter) lstSwapList.Items.Add(New ListItem("300", "1")) lstSwapList.Items.Add(New ListItem("ASP.Net", "2")) lstSwapList.Items.Add(New ListItem("Programming", "3")) SwapN0 = lstSwapList.SelectedValue For Counter = 0 To -1 SwapN0 = lstContent.Items.Count Next End Sub Protected Sub btnDeleteSwap_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDeleteSwap.Click lstSwapList.Items.Remove(lstSwapList.SelectedValue) End Sub Protected Sub btnUpdateSwap_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnUpdateSwap.Click End Sub End Class
