MVC :: What's The Best Way To Create Form Fields Dynamically

Nov 14, 2010

New to .net and revamping a project from classic. In short, I am trying to create all the form fields in the view based on the database and want to figure out the best practice for .net. I've tried a few things but none seem very clean.

So basically select all the fields and data from the database and loop through each record creating the field type(text, drop down ect)/name/onchange event ect along with creating the basic layout, like putting in a column or group a set related fields.

I see how it can be done in the view itself, but there is a bunch of logic required that would be better suited for a function or class more than a bunch of if then elses in the view itself.

Just for context, it's for a real estate investment management project. So there are over 1000 fields that represent information on a house. What the end user see's is based on their choices and their security. Also, all the fields save with the onchange event which is tied to the name of the field. So everything is dynamic.

MVC :: Looking For A Simple Way Of Pre Filling Some Of The Fields In A Create Form?

Mar 31, 2011

I am looking for a simple (or best practice) way of pre filling some of the fields in a create form. As an example, say the create view is loaded for a model that has a datetime field. I want the textbox for that field to be filled with DateTime.Now. I don't need a javascript watermark or anything like that, I jsut want to pre fill the text box.

The GET version of my Create method in the controller just returns the view with no model so I am not sure where to set this value.I've beel trying to figure this out for a while and I must be missing something, I expected this to be really easy.

Way To Dynamically Create Fields In Crystal Reports

Is there a way to dynamically create a report?I have the following tables:


Obviously, this is quite straight forward if I could restrict the limit of the sizes, but they want the flexibility to add sizes, particularly with footwear or if they should need to add women's dress sizes.So the problem is that I'm generating dynamic table columns (the number unknown) during run-time.

C# - Creating A List Of Dataset Fields And Form Fields For Easy Updating?

Feb 25, 2011

I have a relatively complex dataset (numerous tables, some with multiple records) generated from reading in an XML file. I need to connect said dataset fields to an ASP form. At the moment I'm assigning them manually, like so in the pageload:

txt_first_init.Text = formData.ds.Tables["phrmHdrKey"].Rows[0]["first_init"].ToString();
txt_last_name.Text = formData.ds.Tables["phrmHdrKey"].Rows[0]["last_name"].ToString();
ddl_pregnancy_flag.SelectedValue = formData.ds.Tables["pPhrm"].Rows[0]["pregnancy_flag"].ToString();

And conversely when it's time to submit.

formData.ds.Tables["phrmHdrKey"].Rows[0]["first_init"] = txt_first_init.Text;
formData.ds.Tables["phrmHdrKey"].Rows[0]["last_name"] = txt_last_name.Text;
formData.ds.Tables["pPhrm"].Rows[0]["pregnancy_flag"] = ddl_pregnancy_flag.SelectedValue.ToString();

I did some looking into binding the textboxes (and dropdownlists, and checkboxes, and and and...) directly, but it seemed to be too many formats to use.

So this works fine, but as the number of fields increases, those load and unload lists are going to get unwieldy.

How To Create A Submitable Form That Contains Dynamically Added And Removed Controls

May 20, 2010

I am trying to create a form that is made up of controls with values that represent an entity with multiple child entities.

The form will represent a product with multiple properties where the user will then be able to create options with multiple properties which in turn be able to create multiple option-items with multiple properties.

My question is what is the best approach? Can i use ajax to avoid postbacks and having to rewrite the controls to the page? If i dynamically add the controls in the form of table rows or grid rows will the data/control values be available in the code-behind when i submit?

This is an age old question.. the last time i had to do this was .Net 2.0, pre-ajax (for me) and i was forced to recreate all the controls on each post back.

Web Forms :: In The Aspx.cs Of The Form - How To Create A Table Dynamically In SQL Server

Sep 11, 2010

I put this in the aspx.cs of the form I am doing, but, since I haven't found a way to call variables from the ASP, I recreated them, still, even if I did get those, this problem would still exist:

private void DrawPicture(Bitmap bitmap)
System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image PictureFinger;
int PictureFingerW = 248; [code]....

The ImageURL doesn't take the image, but the URL. So, how can I save the image into a variable?

Use C# To Iterate Form Fields With Same Name?

Apr 5, 2010

I have a section of a form that I need to handle differently from the rest of form results. In the section that needs special handling I need to iterate over 3 form fields that have the same name. They have to have the same name, I can't change it. The section of the form I am referring to looks something like this:

<td><input name="Color" size="20" value="" type="text"></td>
<td><input name="Color" size="20" value="" type="text"></td>
<td><input name="Color" size="20" value="" type="text"></td>

Using C# I try something like this:

I try to handle it like this:

int i;
for (i = 1; i <= Request.Form["Color"][i]; i++)
colorName.Text += Request.Form["Color"];

Which leads to the following exception:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

How should I be handling form fields with the same name?

Web Forms :: Dynamically Add More Fields

Sep 27, 2010

I have seen it on here or while googling, but never had a need for it with any projects, now i have a form that has 32 fields, PLUS up to 32 other possible fields.. Not sure how to go about this.. i dont think that having a form with 64 fields is the best solution as you may just need the first 32, but here is my attempt to explain it. I have a page which will gather configuration information, one of the things about this configuration is that you have a 1 to many relation with cameras.

So you have your set configuration for a location, but that location can have up to 32 possible cameras associated with it. But of course you may have just have one camara, so of course you would only need to add 1 new field. Any links to adding dynamic fields would be great.. the other thing is if fields are added dynamically, how to handle that in the insertign of the data into the database, since we wont know how many fields there will be until they hit the submit button.

How To Clear All Form Fields From Code-behind

Apr 10, 2010

HTML has an input button type to reset all fields in a form to their initial state in one step: <input type="reset" ... />.

Is there a similar simple way to reset all form fields of an aspx page from code-behind? Or is it necessary to reset all controls one by one with TextBox1.Text=string.Empty, TextBox2.Text=string.Empty, etc. ?


Context is a simple Contact/"Send us a message" page with 8 asp:TextBoxes on the page (where the user enters the name, address, phone, email, message, etc.). Then he clicks on submit, the Onclick message handler in code-behind sends an email to some administrator, and all the form fields the user filled in should be emptied and he gets a notification in a label ("Message sent blabla..."). I want to have the form fields cleared to avoid that the user clicks again on submit and the same message is sent a second time.

C# - Dynamically Growing Text Fields?

Jan 25, 2011

What's the best way to approach the following situation in mvc2 (c#):I have a form where a user can add more fields ... for example I ask user the details of personal computing devices that they have. For simplicity sake let's say I ask for the brand and type (dropdown list of Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Other) and they can provide unlimited devices. I will start with a pair of text boxes:

<input type="text" />
<input type="button" value="Add more device" />

And then as user click the "Add more device" button I will display another pair of Brand and Type text boxes ... and so on.My question is how should I use HTML helper for this, how I construct the viewModel, etc.I am from PHP background and I used to use the following in PHP:

<input type="text" name="brand[]" />

which on the back end will give me an array of brands ... not sure if that's doable in environment. I would appreciate any input.[I added the following lines to make my question clearer]
I think I have not been very clear with my question.Suppose I have the following viewmodel:

public class UserRegisterViewModel
public string DeviceBrand { get; set; }

I set the tabindex of the the textbox when it is created in the code behind, however when I try and tab in the page it doesn't work. If I click inside a textbox in the grdiview then pressing tab does nothing at all, If I click outside the gridview I can tab through the other controls on the page, and it will tab into the first cell of the gridiview, and then stop/

Processing Variable Number Of Form Fields?

May 17, 2010

I am working on a form which displays information about orders. Each order has a unique id, but they are not necessarily sequential on the form. Also, the number of fields can vary (one field per row on the form). The input into the form will not be mapped straight into the database, but will be added to the current value in the database, and then saved. An example of the form is in the picture below - the callout on the right shows the id for each row.

I know how to generate the form like this, but I can't work out how I can easily process each of these rows reliably. I also know how to give each of the fields a unique identifier, like name="order-23" or name="order[23]", but how can I translate that name so that I can update the related record in the database?

Preventing Extra Fields From Being Added To A Form

Mar 10, 2011

I realize what I am trying to do is a little unconventional; but I want to make my search SEO. Basically I want the query string resulting from my search to be human readable; if I was doing straight html this would be cake:

<form method="GET"><input type="text" name="Zip" /></form>

I realize that I can change the form method in, however, all the state holders show up in the query string. I even tried disabling viewstate and removing all javascript submitting controls (to get rid of __EVENTTARGET) to no avail.

The thing is, I really want to keep using the same master page as I do in the rest of the site; does any one know of anything I can do short of building the page from scratch?
