Forms Data Controls :: Display A List Of Names To Gridview?
Jun 28, 2010
i seem to have a problem with my gridview, i have a gridview with a list of names, this gridview is assign to a datasource and the datasource already has a select statement to display a list of names to my gridview, and i have a search dialog which i use to filter data to be displayed on my gridview, my problem iS after filtering , when a user select a certain row the gridview refreshes and display the initial data(it binds again the use the default setted select query). On my search i use
to filter the grid according to my search criteria, which is the one i have assigned its select to the string varieble filterQuery.
That works fine, and dispaly only d data i setted my search to retrieve, bt my problem is when a user select a row on d gridview , d gridview is repopulated with d initial data(Use initially datasource select statment). How to make d grid to stick to d select statement that i setted on my search and not letting it to go back to the initial setted select.
i want to display name of related table in my gridView insetad of it's id. one solution is using sqlDataSource or objectDataSource, but i don't want using this appproach. i want to do this without setting any dataSourceID or join tables, in other word, i want to do this like windows form datagridViewComboBoxColumn.
I have been working with this database for some time. Here is the situation...
I inherited a MS SQL database that has hundreds of tables with similar data. For instance:
FordTampa_customer is a table,
ChevyAtlanta_customer is a table, etc....
All of the columns are the same...just different tables with their own ID field. All I have done...Inside of another database id is created a table called 'Customer' and added an 'Dealer ID' column along with the rest of the other columns in the other tables...
So the combination of the 'Dealer ID' and the 'ID' field are unique.....I know...its not the best way to do things...but I cannot change the old data structure because I cannot have access to it. I am give back-ups on a weekly basis, so this is all I have to work with.
All right, on to the real point of my post...
Currently, I have an application that I use to select all of the data from the 'Ford_customers','Chevy_customers',etc... and inserts them into my new main 'Customer' table. I do this by selecting the table names, bind it to an arraylist, loop through the list and execute an insert statement.
I do this in VB.NET, but I would prefer to do it in a Stored procedure of some kind....I just am not sure how to accomplish it. I use this syntax to get my list of tables:
I am not sure how to take those names from the table and do another select based on that list of names.
populating the dropdownlist with column name. I have a gridview that has 7 columns . I want to have a textbox search and dropdownfield where user can select column name and type a word in search box and click search so that text for that column name is being search and displayed in grid. how I can fetch just column names from DB and search ?
I'm having trouble figuring out how to display a gridview based on the selection of a drop down list. I manually entered the drop down list items, but in the configure/choose data source I don't understand how you make a relationship between each list item and the corresponding database table you want to show.
I have a gridview that is dynamically created based off a csv file I'm importing.
Since I don't know what the column names are ahead of time, I can't pre format the gridview and use the "findcontrol" method to get the text value of the labels that are populated b/c I don't know the column names.
I know I can get the row index like this by iterating through the gridview...
but I'm not sure how to get the text value of the first column label? Not sure of the syntax?
I currently have a gridview that has autogeneratecolumns = true. Right now, I am trying to find all the column names of a given table. Since auto columns arent part of the columns collection, Grid.HeaderRow.Cells[i].Text does not work. I have also tried
I'm using a windwos authentication via intranet. I'm able to display the username in a label control on a page load event (which is very simple).
I'm not storing this data anywhere in the table (MS SQL). I have all my data in a table and I'm using a gridview to diplay them. I'm using a button control to update all the rows in the gridview. I wanted to update three columns in the gridview (1. Tickbox, 2.Datetime Stamp and 3.UserId).
I've created a query in the dataset, through which i can update the Tickbox and DateTime stamp using now() function. But I'm not sure how to update the UserID field with the UserName (which inturn updates all the three fields in the gridview when the button is pressed.
I am trying to populate table column names into a dropdown list . how can I query using Linq to SQL to just get the list of few Column names ? in a method in DAL which I can use to load in my UI page !!
I have web form and on it I have a DataList that is grabbing some Data from a Database and displaying them as a list.However when I look at the HTML Source Code produced, it's all Tables ! <td> and <tr> !!
How can I stop this ? I want my DataList to display the data like so:
I have a problem with binding a DropDownList. Let's assume a database five years old with many historical records. In order to enable just working with active data every datasource has a column hidden which is occasionally set by administrator in order to clean up old records. The selection looks like
1) SELECT Id, Value FROM Table WHERE Hidden = 0
The issue arises when the user opens a form with old data. As some records in DropDownListhave have already been hidden an exception is raised as the component cannot find the data for the list. For this case the following selection is valid
2) SELECT Id, Value FROM Table
it is possible to combine these two selection queries? The display value should always use query 2 while the listed values should use the query 1.
