I have a 1-column gridview (and it must remain 1-column) which contains only text. My requirement is to prefix each row with an image followed by the text. The image may or may not be indented a bit, like an expanded child node in a tree.
I know a gridview renders as a table and I know I could put an image at the beginning of each row in a table (using a repeater, for example). But this is an existing app with a couple gridviews which need to be enhanced and I don't have the time to swap out the gridviews for repeaters.
i'm bindng data to gridview using bound field.one column of gridview is linkbutton.if the text is more than the cell width then the gridview width is increasing automatically.for ex if i have text like "microsoft asp.net forums" then it's displaying the whole text.but i need that text like "microsoft.....".how to display like this in gridview?
i want to access gridview collumn 2 and for each row replace the text that is there with a "*" because its a password fields so instead on show the pass hide it with * so its more or less this but... see comment line
I have a merged column of firstname and lastname by "Select firstname + lastname from table" but when it appears in the gridview the header text of the column is "Expr1000". How can I change the header text of that merged column?, and I want to change its text into "NAME".
I want if the header of a particular column contains a word "S", the header and row turns red. I used following code to make header red and it works fine. How to make it such that the rows also turn red if condition is met ? I cannot hardcode in columns since the Gridview is autogenerate colums as data structure keeps changing.
Protected Sub GridView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)Dim HeaderRow As GridViewRow = GridView1.HeaderRowFor Each c As TableCell In HeaderRow.CellsIf c.Text.EndsWith("S") Then c.BackColor = Drawing.Color.OrangeRed End If Next End Sub
I like to use GridView because it is easy and flexible to work with. However, I found it quite frustration when it comes to display a column with a large chuck of words into the value of that particular column. Is there anyway to restrict how many words should only be display in a particular column rather than let it expands to cope up to display all the word. For example, I'm trying to display 20w and normally it would display
but I would like to limit to 5 words in a line so it's going to be
