Forms Data Controls :: Show Gridview Footer When Datasource Is Empty?
Mar 4, 2010
I have a gridview with insert new row controls in the footer binded to sql datasource. I want to show the footer when the datasource is empty. Although the empty data template is there but any other solution you fellows can tell me ?
I've got a gridview in which I have a footer that I use to insert rows into the grid. However, if the grid is empty no data is displayed (including the footer). Is there a way to still show the footer row so a user can insert additional rows into the grid despite it starting out as empty?
I am trying to show the footer template of a gridview on page load when there is no data in the database. The reason why im saying page load is that I have code to actually pull data from the database instead of a datasource.
The datasource of the datagrid is a LINQDataSource which relies on the value of a dropdownlist. In addition, I want to use the footer to insert new records - so I'd prefer not to use the empty dataset template. I am trying to find a way to always display the footer regardless if the datasource is empty or not.
EDIT: Is there a way to create an empty/invisible object of the type in the LinqDataSource?
i have used gridview to display data from the database and in the gridview i want to add two buttons CONFIRM and CANCEL...the problem is when i am addind two buttons they are added in another columns footer....how to align them in the center of the gridview...
I have a grid that contains a footer row conating the textboxes to insert data. The problem is that when there is no row in the the grid the header and the footer does not get displayed. Is there any way to show header and footer when there is no row in the grid?
I am trying to populate a gridview using two tables. I also have a strongly typed dataset and used the method on this page: [URL] the problem is that, when i try to use two table the gridview does show up (I checked through debugging that the datatable comes back as empty).
I have a gridview and i wanted to add a row when the gridview is empty, so that the header would be shown anyway. I have read about it on the web but i can't quite understand where exactly should i add the row.
My grid is binded by a sqldatasource. I am already adding a second header for the grid (to display some filters, and they need to be shown even if there are no results so that the user can perform another "search"), on rowCreated event, so, where am i supposed to add the row? Which events are fired even if the gridview is empty?
I got how to add textbox to gridview at footer... it working fine... but if i do pagination for it.. textbox at footer in gridview reapeting in all page.. but i want to show that textbox at last page of gridview..
I'm building a gridview on the fly in code behind:
I display the incrementing number in the header. I create a column to show the current Row Number, but I'm not sure how to display the header text (Incrementing number) in the corresponding footer. Is there a special trick for it if I'm creating columns on the fly?
I have a gridview with two bound fields. On clicking a button i want to display the values in first row of gridview in two textboxes. But if gridview cell is empty i am getting the text in textbox to which the value of cell is given as -' 'i know my problem will be solved if i use the template fields instead. But i want a solution while maintaining the bound fields ,if any.
If I write the following code, teh gridview will no longer show the data
gridview.DataSource = null; gridview.Databound.
My question is , I want to make the same thing with a user control that contain a gridview. when I use the user control in an aspx page, I am able to populate it with data, but when I try to make this code, the Datasource does not show, instead, I see .DV. So I tried this code but then , I do not see DataSource property instead I see DV (DataView), when I put .DV = null, I get an error message that the object is not in existed. any idea how to clear the user control gridview from its data.
