GridView CommandArgument Needs Field From Repeater

Sep 4, 2014

I have a repeater. This gets bound to a data set which contains (amongst others) a field called EntityType and a field called ID. An Entity Type might be "Person" and there might be several categories of "Person". The ID field identifies that category. So there might be a "Person" type 1, a "Person" type 2 and so on. The Entity Type and ID therefore make up a compound primary key.

Nested in each row of the repeater I have a grid view which get populated as a result of clicking an "expand" button in the repeater row. Each row in the GridView represents an "Entity". So "Peter" who's own ID might be, say 59 might be a "Person" of Type 1. So Peter really has a three column primary key consisting of the EntityType and ID field's from the repeater's dataset and the ID from gridview's dataset.

So in order to query the database and fully retrieve Peter, I need that whole primary key. I know how to get the ID from the GridView's dataset, I set Eval("ID") as the CommandArgument for the gridview's button and then consume it in the event. But I don't know how to get at the EntityType or the ID from the Repeater's dataset. How can I do that?

Here's my code at the moment:-

asp Code:
<asp:Repeater ID="ChildClassesRepeater" runat="server" OnItemCommand="ChildClassesRepeater_ItemCommand" Visible ="false" >       
<ItemTemplate> <tr> <td> <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "EntityType")%> </td> <td> 
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Class")%> </td> <td>

[Code] ....

I'm thinking the easiest thing to do is put the EntityType and parent ID on the Command Argument where it currently reads IDontKnowWhatGoesHere but I can't work out how to get at them.

Alternatively, is there a way I can get at them in the event handler? I think not but I'm not sure.

I could have the query for the grid view return the parent columns, that would allow me to eval them in the same way as I am the entity ID. That feels like I'm reading redundant data, though, as it's already there in the client - if I could just get at it.

Use CommandArgument Property With LinkButton Inside Repeater?

Oct 15, 2010

The link button only sets some value as true and does nothing else. When I run the code the LinkButton's event just won't fire! In my aspx page I got this LinkButton inside of a repeater with CommandName="SetDefault", some ID, runat property. That's it. In my code, inside of myRepeater_Itemcommand(), I got this

if (e.CommandName == "SetDefault")
Users obj = new Users();
obj.IsDefault = true;

[EDIT] I resolved it myself. It was a silly mistake. "l" was missing from "SetDefault" in my aspx page.

Gridview - Passing Multiple Argument Through CommandArgument Of Button?

Mar 5, 2010

I have a gridview with multiple rows, each has a Update button and I need to pass 2 values when someone clicks on Update button. Aside from packing the arguments inside CommandArgument separated by commas (archaic and not elegant), how would I pass more than one argument?

<asp:LinkButton ID="UpdateButton" runat="server" CommandName="UpdateRow" CommandArgument="arg_value" Text="Update and Insert" OnCommand="CommandButton_Click" ></asp:LinkButton>

As a note, the values can't be retrieved from any controls on the page, so don't offer any design solutions. Please concentrate on the question asked.

C# - Nesting Repeater In Gridview: Hiding Gridview Row And Repeater Header If Data Is Not There In Repeater?

Apr 21, 2010

I have nested a repeater control in Gridview. Right now it is showing gridview rows and repeater header for every case(whether data is there or not for that particular grid view row in the repeater control). I want to hide the gridview row and repeater control header when there is no data present for that particular gridview row. That case I handled at code level by filtering the resulted data table.

Now the another problem I am facing: I have allowed the paging on the gridview i.e. pagesize 3. When page loads it works fine, but when I go to page 2 then it generates following error: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index

Below is the code to fill the grid, paging and fill repeater on rowdatabound event of grid.

Forms Data Controls :: Commandargument Wouldn't Change For Session As Long As I Didn't Refresh The Gridview?

Jan 29, 2010

I have a gridview set up as follows:


Now, as you can see I've set up the commandargument, and was expecting to get to that in my code behind file. My code is as follows:

[Code].... far so good, and as long as I'm the only one working on the system it works fine. The problem is if this scenario happens:

* I go to the page and look at the gridview

* Someone else enters a new record into the database, causing the first row to contain a new record (not displayed in my browser)

* I click select.

What happens then is that, for some odd reason, I will get n numbers higher than the one I actually selected (n = num_added -num_removed).

I was under the impression that the commandargument wouldn't change for my session as long as I didn't refresh the gridview...?... There are no ajax or anything else messing with postbacks or viewstate as far as I can see..

Forms Data Controls :: Nested Repeater - How To Get Particular Field Of The Anonymous Type?

Jan 26, 2011

nested repeater like this:

It seems my Eval(Container.DataItem, "JobNID") is not working and I assume this is because the datasource of the outer (parent) repeater is an anonymous type. So how am I supposed to access a particular field of my anonymous type?

C# - Passing Two Values Through CommandArgument And Splitting It?

Dec 7, 2010

I'm using the commandArgument property of the LinkButton ( Which is wrapped inside a repeater ) to pass two values -as one string- to a second repeater then I try to split them into two values, So I could use them as parameters in my ADO.NET Code (SqlCommand Parameters)....after testing my queries don't return any results but If I passed fixed values for the parameter or change the source of the parameter (just for test from a textbox or querystring or something) I get my results, so I think the problem is in splitting.

I Conduct some arugment values from the ArgumentCommand property of the LinkButton -which is wrapped inside a repeater:

<asp:LinkButton id="sort_lnkbtn" Text='<%# Eval("value")%>'
CommandArgument='<%#string.Format("{0}|{1}",Eval("arrange_by_id"),Eval("value"))%>' runat="server">

Then I receive these values and cut them into two pieces of information:

string sortByAndArrangeBy = (e.CommandArgument).ToString();
char[] separator = { '|' };
string[] sortByAndArrangeByArray = sortByAndArrangeBy.Split(separator);

Now the code uses this values as a

using (SqlConnection cn1 = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["testConnectionString"].ConnectionString))
using (SqlCommand cm1 = new SqlCommand("SELECT [name] FROM brands WHERE (name like @SearchString + '%' )", cn1))
cm1.Parameters.Add("@SearchString", System.Data.SqlDbType.Char);
cm1.Parameters["@SearchString"].Value = sortByAndArrangeByArray[1];
using (SqlDataReader dr1 = cm1.ExecuteReader())
List_rpt.DataSource = dr1;

Web Forms :: Persisting CommandArgument After Re-Creating Dynamic Button On PostBack?

Mar 14, 2011

I need some high-level advice on how to deal with this issue. I want to have dynamically created buttons, each with a different CommandArgument, that call an OnCommand event when clicked. Given that these are dynamic buttons, I have to re-create them in Page_Load after the postback. However, when I re-create the buttons, the orginal command arguments are lost, and the arguments generated after the postback are only valid.As you'd expect, if I don't recreate the buttons, the event handler is never called because the buttons don't exist.My question is, how can I retrieve those original commandarguments, without the use of sessions.
