Forms Data Controls :: When Click The Insert, The Formview Changes Fine To The Template For Inserting New Data?
Sep 20, 2010
I am using a formview to show data, with edit, insert and delete enabled. My problem is with the insert.When i click the insert, the formview changes fine to the template for inserting new data, the problem is it was allowing the user to insert the ID themselves, I have made this readonly, but how would i go about ensuring the ID key is made the next number in line? and that it is printed to this textbox?
I have a formview with various templates set up for a database that has 255 columns. I need the insertitemtemplate to pre-fill values based upon a specific selection by the user (just like the edit item template) but when the template is switched to insertitemtemplate every text box is cleared. The idea is that a new entry is usually made by making minor changes to an existing entry. With 255 fields I don't want to require the user to enter every field when only three or four need to change.
I have created a simple dataset with my ObjcetDataSource to my SQL table named Invoices and a new FormView. My form inserts are working 100% correctly, however after some testing i noticed the insert happens again if i hit the refresh button on my browser after an initial insert. I am currently submitting the form back to itself with a success/fail message returned on the page so that the user can keep inserting more records if they choose. This is done in my Inserted behaviour.
In my ObjectDataSource_Inserting code i am setting the values of a date prior to my insert. How do i stop a second INSERT from happening when the user refreshes the browser? I thought it was what IsPostBack was used for? Here is my code:
I'm using visual web developer and MS.Access and have the following created. 1. A formview control to enter data into the database 2. A File upload control that allows users to upload files. But however i'm unable to include the file upload control in the formview control. How can i achieve this? Below is the code for the page:
I am using an ObjectDataSource in my FormView for INSERT.
Data inserts correctly to my backend SQL table, however as i am posting back a success/fail message to the same page, i have noticed that after a successful INSERT if it hit the Refresh button the INSERT is doubled up.
How can i stop a user pressing the Refresh button and doubling the INSERT?
Is there a setting somewhere or can i stop this programmatically within my ObjectDataSource_Inserting method perhaps?
I have a web page with a gridview & formview (master/detail relationship) combo. On page load the gridview shows all records from a SQL table. On my page I have a button that when clicked shows the formview in Insert mode to allow users to add a new record to the data. I have also added a column to my gridview that has a link. When a user clicks this link it hides the gridview and shows the formview in edit mode with the detail from the record selected from the gridview.
In my formview I am using a listbox control to allow users to select multiple values. The choices in the listbox are populated by a SQL data table. I have successfully written code to post the selected listbox values to my SQL data field during Insert. When the user selects a record to edit I have code in the databound event to select values in the listbox from the choices based on the value in the sql data field. This works as well. My problem is that I cannot figure out the correct code to update my SqL data when a user is editing the record and makes changes to the selected listbox value. I have included my design code for my listbox in my formview edittemplate and also my behind code that I have attempted.
I use GridView & FormView to update a record. but when I click the "save" button, throw an except : FormView must be in the insert mode to insert a record. The record has been updated success, and I didn't change the mode of the FormView, how this error comes?
I'm joining 2 tables and using the formview. When I insert a record, I need to place the value of the max id + 1 of the second table in a field in the first table so that the tables are linked. I'm not sure where to put the value. I try to put it in the insert command and I've tried the select command but that doesn't work.
Table 1 - Product: ID, ProductNum, Brand, Description Table2 - Brand: ID, BrandName (Brand from Table1 is linked to ID from Table 2) <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionString %>" DeleteCommand="DELETE FROM [Product] ..." InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [Product] ([productNum], [Brand] VALUES (@productNum, @Brand)" SelectCommand="SELECT Product.ID, Product.Brand, Product.Description, Brand.ID, Brand.BrandName From Product INNER JOIN Brand ON Product.Brand= Brand.ID" UpdateCommand="UPDATE [Product] SET [productNum] = @productNum, [Brand] = @Brand ......"
In my "insert tempate", I formatted fields, moved them around so everything looked and acted as needed. My Question) Anyway of taking that work (including the field formatting) and copy to the "edit template" ?
I have a simple EditItem Template within a Formview that I am using to add a record to a table. There is one field in the form that I would like to assign a variable to. I cannot figure it out. I do not see any properties in VS2008 that allow me to assign the value.
The value that I am assigning is an item number, wich is the primary key in the table that I supply on the form.
I keep getting a null reference when I try to access a listbox inside the EditItemTemplate of a formview. I check the mode before accessing the control (Formview1.CurrentMode) to make sure it is in edit mode and even set it manually to edit mode again! But formview1.findcontrol("blah") returns null. Formview1.EditItemTemplate does not have a FindControl method, not sure what else to try.
I'm putting together a page that allows the user to enter a new record in an SQL table. A bunch of the fields in the table are bit datatypes. I want to use CheckBoxes to correspond to the bit datatype columns in the SQL table.
How do I bind the checkboxes to the SQL table columns?
I have a Formview residing inside am Item Template of a Gridview. The formview is not populating, and I am pretty convinced that I am not passing the parameter properly from the Gridview to the Formview. I have listed the relevant code only, so that you can scan though it easierGridview tag:
