Forms Data Controls :: Updating A DropDownList In The GridView Using Databinding?

Mar 24, 2010

I am trying to create a Gridview in which I can update the Project Officer name in the Gridview from a DropDownList.

The Project Officer DDL comes from a seperate query (SqlProjectOfficerName) as the other information (SqlDataSource1)... as you can see below.

When I select EDIT, the DDL appears and I can select from the list of Project Officers, but when I select UPDATE, the name of the Project Officer doesnot change.

review the code below and assist as appropriate to write the Project Officer's name back to the table.

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding A Dropdownlist Within A Gridview?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a gridview in which I have two drop downs. One is populated with values that are static, so I have a regular sub that does that in the code behind. I tried to add code for databinding the other ddl to a datatable. I cannot get this to work. It just comes up empty. My asp code is fine, and the datatable definately has data in it - just nothing gets populated.

One other thing - the code for the static ddl has worked fine, but when I add this other block (either to the same sub as that, or dow the rowdatabound event) the static one doesn't work either.

Forms Data Controls :: Updating A Row In A Gridview With A Dropdownlist

Oct 15, 2010

I have a gridview that holds 4 columns. in the fourth column there is a DropDownlist that holds three items.

I want my users to select one of the values and when they do the auto post back (which is set to true) should execute a method that updates the database selected row. But do i use the selectedindexchanged of the DDL or the Gridview? My head is totally thrashed so i imagine its really simple and im just over thinking it.

Forms Data Controls :: Updating Dropdownlist Only In A Specific Cell In GridView

Mar 11, 2011

I have a situation where i need to update my Dropdownlist templatefield inside a GridView....but only for a specific cell. I have seen codes like this to loop through the whole GridView and update every rows in a specific column, but how do i do it if i only want to update one specific cell ? (If i know the index information of the cell, for example, I know i want to update the dropdownlist on Column 3 and Row 2)

foreach (GridViewRow row in GridView1.Rows)
{
if (row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
{
this.WorkTypeDDL = ((DropDownList)row.FindControl("WorkTypeList"));
this.WorkTypeDDL.DataSource = AL;
this.WorkTypeDDL.DataBind();
//more codes blah blah blah//

Forms Data Controls :: Remove Databinding Of DropdownList When Another Dropdown List Changes?

Aug 27, 2010

I have many controls on my form, but in particular, I have 2 dropdownlists. 1 dropdown list has 2 values, and each value controls what the second dropdownlist displays. This is an edititemtemplate and both dropdowns have the selecteditem set via '<%# Bind("fieldname") #>' on page load.

THe problem is, if I change the value of the first dropdown, it errors out because the second dropdwon has a bound value that is no longer acceptable.

Can I cancel the bind of the second control, if the the first one is changed? I would like to cancel the bind, and update the values by using a different datasource depending on the value of the first dropdown or hardcode the new values.

If Dropdown1 has a value of "A" for example Dropdown 2 Shows Values "1", "2", "3"

If Dropdown 1 has a value of "B" , Dropdown2 Shows Values "4", "5", "6".

It binds fine initially, but if I change Dropdown1 from A to B, I want Dropdown2 to show the new values, maybe with a default of "Select an Item" and not error out b/c it's attempts to bind a value of 1, 2, or 3.

Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist - - Loading Based On Another Control And Databinding It?

Dec 23, 2010

Bringing back to life an old post that I dont believe ever got solved: http://forums.asp.net/t/1562245.aspxThis may be an old thread .... but no answer was ever given ... and I too have a radio button list and DDL and am stuck in the EXACT same place. If I check one of the two data bound radio buttons, the DDL should repopulate with a different set of results. This works just fine EXCEPT .... the DDL cannot be databound. If I set SELECTEDVALUE of the control to a bind I get this error:Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.I have followed the advice on this page from various users, all to no avail....surely this can be done, and I assume quite simply. Anyone know the answer?

Forms Data Controls :: Databinding Dropdownlist Added To Form Via Placeholder?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a formview that has several dropdownlists in the EditItemTemplate. Some of the dropdownlists are added using placeholders. I can add and populate their listitems without any problem. But when I update the record, none of the controls can be found--even though when I look at the page source they are there. I first strated out using asp:ControlParameter in my sqldatasource updateparameters, but even referencing the control as myform$mycontrol did nothing. So then I moved to code behind on the sqldatasource.updating event (code is attached). The only controls I cannot seem to bind to the update are those added via the placeholder.

[Code]....

The item at the dim statement is not an item added using a placeholder and does not get a null reference exception (I used that to prove during debbugging that I wasn't losing my mind)--however, all the items being used to get the parameter values are getting null reference exceptions and are added via placeholders. Here is the code I'm using to set up the dropdownlists:

[Code]....

how to get the value of these controls so they can be used in my update?

Forms Data Controls :: Updating Formview And DropDownList?

Mar 26, 2010

One of the fields on my formview is a dropdownlist. When I go into edit mode the dropdownlist gets set to the correct value and works fine up to this point. Problem is I just can't see how to get the newly selected value of the dropdownlist to persist to the database when update is clicked. The DDL is a category list and I want to allow changing of the category for each record. Like I said I have it working so it displays the correct category for the record but if I change the DDL (change category) the new selected value doesn't get updated in the database. It just keeps using the binded value that was originally assigned to the selected value of the DDL. see code snippit

[Code]....

The above snippet is how I am binding the DDL. Now to not bore you with a ton of code paste I use various events of the formview to make sure the value displayed in the DDL is correct for the record that I am viewing at the time. All that works just fine. Where I need some pointers is the when I enter edit mode and change the DDL from say fire to ice it isn't getting persited to the database, all other info in the record gets updated just fine but the DDL never changes. I have tried several angles to getting this working and TBH my brain is yelling BREAK TIME.

Forms Data Controls :: GridView Sorting, Paging And DataBinding / When Control Causes A Postback GridView Is No Longer Sorted?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm trying to extend the GridView control to enable sorting and paging for any situation.

When using my control I am fetching data from a database and filling a DataSet with it, then binding the GridView upon every page load. My first question would be, is this the correct approach?

To sort the GridView I am overriding the OnSorting method which stores the sort expression and direction in the ViewState, then creates a DataView and utalises the Sort method to sort the underlying data. It then sets the Data Source to this DataView and rebinds the GridView.

Paging is handled by OnPageIndexChanging which simply sets the PageIndex property and again rebinds the GridView.

My problem is; when any control causes a postback my GridView is no longer sorted, presumably because it is persistently rebound. If I don't rebind it then the GridView is empty on postback since the data isn't automatically stored in the ViewState. I have considered saving the data source in the ViewState but I would assume that this is bad practice for large amounts of data? - also DataViews are not seralisable.

The only solution I can think of currently is to override OnDataBound and sort the data every time. This results in a double sort when paging triggers a postback which seems inefficient. Code illustration of this below,

[Code]....

I'm looking for the cleanest 'best practice' solution as this is a learning exercise more than anything else.

Forms Data Controls :: Getting Gridview Total Rows Before Databinding Is Complete?

Jun 22, 2010

On every row in my datagrid, i need to set a control to visible/invisible depending on how many entries are shown in the grid.

If total rows are > 1, the control needs to be visible on every row. If rows = 1, it needs to be invisible.

BUT, how do i do this? If i just check my GridView.Rows.Count, the first row will (of course) be invisible, while the rest will be visible.

Can i check how many rows are pulled out of my datasource, or do i need to go through each row, setting visible true, AFTER the grid is populated.

Forms Data Controls :: Changing Data In A Gridview During Databinding Or After Databound?

Feb 2, 2010

im building a simple message messenger web application, i currently have a column in my database dedicated to the status of a message. Its bound to the third column in a datagrid.

After converting the column to a TemplateField and using a Label to fetch the data how do i change the text from the database to a small message, e.g. if the data in the database (as an interger) is 0. how do i change the interger to a string to display "UnRead". Do i need to do this during the databinding call or after the grid has been databound?

I know it would be easier to use a boolean and checkbox control but the interger column represents more values than true or false.

Web Forms :: How To Load The DropDownList Controls With Items Before The Form Databinding Occurs

Oct 11, 2010

I have a webForm which host a gridview and a formview. The formview is used for showing/editing a record which the user Select from the gridview.

In the formview Edit template I used DropDownList controls with

SelectedValue='<% bind("datafield")%>'

for enabling the user easier interface. A few of the DropDownList controls need to have a list of 100 items and I want to load the items from code behind and not from the aspx.

I tried to update the DDL's from FormView.Load, FormView.ModeChanging, FormView.PreRender but
nothing I am getting an error like this:

How do I load the DropDownList controls with items BEFORE the form databinding occurs.
