Forms Data Controls :: Change The ListView Template Based On A Value In The Listview Data
Jan 14, 2010
I am simply trying to change the listView template based on a value in the listview data. I do have this displaying the information correctly. Except when I try to change the item template based on a value in the listview. My code is below ....
In my edit template I want a dropdownlist containing a list of possible customers. The list is populated from a database table containing existing customers. If the main record has customer "XYZ", then I want that customer to be the default in the dropdown. I'm using VS 2008 and C# My markup for the dropdownlist is currently:
The dropdownlist is populated but the problem is it shows the first customer in the list. I don't want the user to have to rechoose customer if that is not what they are changing.
I am using the ItemDataBound event of a ListView to attach data for the different kind of templates I am using. Well, actually, want to use - I have not yet figured out how to know which template is coming in in the ItemDataBound event. I want to figure out if it is the edititemtemplate, insertitemplate, itemtemplate, etc. All these templates have different controls (edit and insert are the same though) and I need to set the controls contained in them.
I have a ListView Which displays Customer, product, price, Quantity and comments from database.The User can either edit it or Insert new items. In Edit Item template and Insert item template, i need to add a image button next to the textbox, which when clicked, will display a pop up window with list of customers or products.I have been doing it with the normal aspx page with textboxes. I use click handler to pop up the windows.i'm not able to do with listview Please help to give a solution to it.How else can i add an image icon and click it and get the values back to the textboxes?i will post what i'm doing without listview first and then the part of the relavant code of Listview.
While running ItemDetabound upon load of a listivew, I am trying to access the text in a label of the LayoutTemplate of a different Listview. It works fine if I try access the same labels under the same names if they are in the same listview, but not if they are in a different one. It was working for a while, can't figure out what I changed, but now says that object doesn't exist.
I am trying to do this with many issues of data binding doubling the amount and not setting selectedValue on dropdownlist. I have read some posts and they help but I am missing a crucial piece. My problem is that my dropdownlist is doubling the amount of records for the dropdownlist. Instead of "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE", I am getting "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE;YES;NO;YES;NO". My database is correct with the UPDATE part but the rebind after update is failing horribly.
I have a ListView, I've setup to use an ObjectDataSource, I've created my Layout and Item templates, and I'm able pull and view a list of my data no problem. However I want to add delete capabilities to my ListView and my reference material tells me to go into the "Configure ListView..." option under the ListView's smart tag, the only problem is I don't have that option, the only three options in my smart tag are "Choose DataSource", "Configure DataSource..." and "Refresh Schema", what am I doing wrong?
I have anested ListView control. I also implemented a jQuery to automatically expand the TextBox control inside of the nested ListView Insert Template. The problem is, when the Textbox expand, the outer ListView control is not; therefore, the Textbox control expands underneath the buttons of the outer listView control. How do I expand the outer ListView control as the nested ListView textbox is automatically expand? One great example is in Facebook where if I add a response comment, it'll automatically push any comments below mine down. If nested Listview control is not the best way to do this, what are my options?
Does anyone have an example for how to create a Dynamically Templated Listview with prefernces page to specify which columns & column order)? Also the listview would also have Edit, delete and insert options if possible. And uses the n-tier approach with Bus Layer and does NOT use LINQ.
Is there any way to enable alternative ListView (LV2) or any other control in case when ListView (LV1) returns no records from DB? I already have emptydatatamplate designed for this case, but I need to enable a new ListView below in this particular case and I don't know how to achieve this!
I try to datbind a listview which is inside another listview InsertItemTemplate.
I'm binding the listivew in the parent listview onitemcreated events. I receive the error Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.
I am having trouble finding how to solve the following issue :
I am using nested listviews to display Sales and Sales details.
The main ListView displays General Information about Sales and the child ListView displays the detailed information about one sale. the child listview is shown only when the user clicks on a link (see included code, DataBind is made on PageLoad) :
ASPX Markup Code :
C# Behind Code :
If I removed the datapager part, I can manage show/hide the child list view on the button click event. but if I want to use the DataPager with the PreRender event handling, the child listview is not longer shown on button click.
The form allows a user to create and edit one estimate.
Each estimate can contain multiple Jobs, which are represented in a ListView.
Each Job can contain multiple Parts, which are contained in a ListView that sits in each item of the Jobs ListView.
A user can add and remove as many Jobs as they want.
A user can add and remove as many Parts to/from each Job as they want.
I have no issues adding to each of these, but I do have a problem removing a single part from a single job.
For a reference, here is one Job in the Jobs ListView on the form:
I want to make sure that no matter what a user does, the part of the form they are working on saves what they have. Removing a row from that Parts ListView is no exception. What I want it to do is save the values in each of those textboxes and then delete the necessary row.
Here's what I have in the codebehind:
The EstimateRow variable I create does not get a value from theListView)HFERID.Parent.FindControl("LVEstimateRow") bit of code. There must be another level of nesting that I'm not accessing correctly, because it can't seem to find that nested ListView.
I have a datakey defined on my outermost ListView. When I click on a linkbutton in a row in this listview, the second listview is displayed. This inner listview has several controls and also a linkbutton. When I click this linkbutton, it gets handled by its own event; linkbutton_click. In this event all the data is collected from the innermost listviews' controls, and sends it to the database. The only thing I need within this event is the datakey from the outermost listview.
Using a listview control for the first time... I need a button for each item, and of course I need to handle the click event for the buttons... upon clicking a particular button I of course need to know which item the button is associated with so the appropriate action can be taken...
In VS, I can't select the button and see my list of available events in the properties window like is normally done for controls outside of templates like this... what do I need to do?
way to change a ListView into Insert Mode when linkbutton is not part of the ListView? Basically I have a button at the top of my page and when the user clicks the button I'd like to put the ListView into Insert Mode. I'm assuming that it's not working currently because the button is NOT part of the listview Layout Template.
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkMachines" Text="Create New Machines" CommandName="Insert" runat="server" onclick="lnkMachines_Click" /> [code]...
I come across the technique on how to apply a different CSS class to make a row stand out from the others. However, the original code is for gridview whilst I am trying to get it works on a listview. The original code for the gridview is as follows and how to get it done on listview.
I would like to change the listview template on a button click event. for example if your in edittemplate i would like to switch to ItemTemplate.i am trying to do this because im writing my own custom update function for the list view. so after i successfully update the row, it doesn't switch back to the default view.
I have a listview and a dropdownlist that is pulling from an SQLTable that I am using to insert data into the ListView, which is associated with the SQLTable. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to get this thing to not allow duplicate entries into the listview.
If I could get at the data that is inside the ListView I think my problem would be solved. At the moment all the code I have is to simply find if I can at least get the data down to something I can compare, from that step I will have no problem writing something functional, at least functional for my needs. I really could use a hand with this:
I don't personally have access to the SQLTable, but I can have somebody make changes if this should/needs to be done from that end, but I would rather do it from this end in VB. I've been digging through the MSDN Libraries
