Ajax Updating Update Panel Automatically?

Feb 4, 2011

I have an page which requires certain sections to be partially updated automatically at an interval of 5 seconds. I was planning to use the good old Timer control with the AJAX Update Panel for this purpose, but after a bit of reading on this control i found out that it may have some problems especially if,

1) The time difference between the async event performed ( 4 seconds ) by the update panel and the Timer's tick interval ( which is 5 seconds ) are quite small, the update panel will be held up in the async operation all the time.

2) Also, the fact that timer control doesn't work very well with Firefox.

I just wanted to get your opinion as to whether if i should go ahead with the timer and update panel approach, write some custom javascript that does the partial page update or some other strategy altogether.

Web Forms :: Updating Data Automatically Using Web Service?

Apr 15, 2010

I am creating a web app with sql server 05 and visual studio express 08. There is always live data inserted into my sql tables throughout the day infrequently.

I want to create a web page that will show the data in graphs etc. I can currently show the data present in the database on the web page. HOWEVER what i do not know is how to update the page (graphs) with the NEW DATA that has been inserted into the tables.

I guess I will have to use ajax to change the data shown on the web page automatically. I will also need somesort of triggers to tell when new data has arrived.

C# - Cached Objects Update Automatically With The Object Updating?

Jul 2, 2010

I found some code on the web and it threw me off. Look at the code below. You will notice only when the Hits == 1, does the cache get added. After that, the cache object isn't updated. It begs the question, does the object when updated, update the cache as well automatically? The answer here would make me remove some code in some of my classes.

public static bool IsValid( ActionTypeEnum actionType )
HttpContext context = HttpContext.Current;
if( context.Request.Browser.Crawler ) return false;
string key = actionType.ToString() + context.Request.UserHostAddress;
var hit = (HitInfo)(context.Cache[key] ?? new HitInfo());
if( hit.Hits > (int)actionType ) return false;
else hit.Hits ++;
if( hit.Hits == 1 )
context.Cache.Add(key, hit, null, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(DURATION),
System.Web.Caching.CacheItemPriority.Normal, null);
return true;

I would only guess that I would need to add the lines after the if statement:

if( hit.Hits == 1 )
context.Cache.Add(key, hit, null, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10),
System.Web.Caching.CacheItemPriority.Normal, null);
else if (hit.Hits > 1)
context.Cache.Add(key, hit, null, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10),
System.Web.Caching.CacheItemPriority.Normal, null);
Found the code at the bottom of the page here:

Web Forms :: Automatically Update Data Source According To Another Field?

Jul 28, 2010

There is a field called school which is a dropdown menu, I manually edit items and made it like these: select school, name of 6 elementaries and 2 middle schools, and a high school.I have another field called grade level, which is a drop down menu too, i manually entered the grade items for it: select grade, Kindergarten, 1, 2, 3......12.

I would like after user selects a school in the drop down menu, the field called grade level dropdown box' data source will be updated according to school. For example, if it is a middle school selected, the data source of grade level will be updated to 6, 7 8 grade, if it is elementary the grade will be updated to 1, 2, 3, 4 5 etc. In this way later, when user goes to select grade it will show appropriate grade level lists according to schools.

Updating A Hidden Field Via JavaScript?

Feb 3, 2011

I inherited some JavaScript that I was told to integrate into our ASP.NET site. I thought this would be straightforward but it's turning out to be a bit of a challenge.

The code looks something like this:

<SELECT id="Question1" name="Question" onchange="updateQuestion();">
<OPTION value="notChosen">--Please Select One--</OPTION>
<OPTION value="in">India</OPTION>
<OPTION value="de">Germany</OPTION>
<OPTION value="fr">France</OPTION>
<OPTION value="us">United States</OPTION>
<OPTION value="ch">Switzerland</OPTION>

The goal is to get the value from this HTML control into ASP.NET, however this control itself is being dynamically generated by another chunk of javascript, so I can't just change this to an control. My solution was to add the onchange="updateQuestion();" method, this JS will take these SELECT tags and place the values into an ASP.NET control:

function updateSecQ() {
var sQuestion = document.getElementById('<%=sQuestion.ClientID%>');
sQuestion.Value = "";
var questions = document.getElementsByName('Question');
for (question in questions) {
if (questions[question].value != null)
sQuestion.Value += questions[question].value + ",";

As you can see, that's looking to update an ASP.NET control:

<asp:HiddenField ID="sQuestion" runat="server" value="" />

This appears to all work, however when I goto the server side on the form submit I see that sQuestion.Value is still = "".

DataSource Controls :: Relational Field Not Updating On Update?

Mar 1, 2010

I have detailsview with a SQLDataSource to 1 table (City) and am referencing another table (Unit) for one if it's fields.


I changed the Unit Code (City Table) field into a template field and am using a dropdownlist item to reference the Unit Name from the (Unit Table) with the CityTable.Unit Code = UnitTable.Unit Code. However when I go into the update and change the dropdownlist item to another Unit Name it is keeping the original Unit Code value or it might even be selecting the first value from the dropdownlist item.

DataSource Controls :: Updating SQL Data Fields By Field Index?

Jan 7, 2010

I have a situation where I have a file with each Account Record contains Monthly Expense Total Fields and Monthly Budget Fields for 2009, 2008 and 2007. I'm working with 72 fields (36 Expense and 36 Budget).

Need to create New Year Proceure that will shift data from 2008 to 2007, 2009 to 2008 and move Zeros to 2009 for both Expenses and Budgets.

I can do this using Parameters and Update SQL but I am under the impression that I must specificaly name each field in defining Parameters and SQL Update Command.

Since all fields are sequential withing a record, is there a way that I can use a For/Next loop to index my way through the fields moving data from one year to another?

When using DataReader I'm able to use reader.item(index) to access data record fields.

Forms Data Controls :: Formatting Updating An Edit With Template Field?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm using a formatting expression with a template field. When the details view goes into edit mode the formatting is applied. It looks great because it applies the currency formatting. It shows up as "$60,000.00" instead of "60,000.0000". But then when I do the update it gets rejected because of the $. Is there a way to keep the formatting for the user to see in edit mode but remove the $ when doing the update so I don't get the error?

The error: Exception Details: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

Forms Data Controls :: Updating Field Value In Gridview Rowupdating Event

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Modified Date and Modified By column in my gridview and I want them to be updated with the current date and current user any time a user updates the row.

I converted my columns to template fields and the textboxes in the edititemtemplate are bound to my sql data columns "ModifiedDate" and "ModifiedBy"

Then I added the attached code in my RowUpdating event.

When I test the code and click the Update link on my gridview I don't get an error but the values don't update either. I put a breakpoint on the code and when I hover over "ModifiedDateLabel.Text" I see the old value of the field so I know I'm accessing the control correctly.

Forms Data Controls :: DataBound GridView Checkbox Field Not Updating SQL?

Jan 14, 2011

So I am uding a GridView bound to a SQL data source.

I have a template feild bound to a SQL BIT

<EditItemTemplate <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSelected" runat="server" Checked='<%# Bind("Selected") %>

The original Item Template was Enabled ="false" I changed this so that you did not have to set the row to a state of edit in order to just select a row. I enabled it so that you could "select" any row with out putting it in a state of edit. the only value changing is if its selected or not. What i am trying to do is use the Data Source Update method to update the bit in the database based on the check box. Currently Update() returns 0. I believe this is because the row/feild is not marked as changed so the Data Source does not see it as something that needs to be updated.

What I am hoping for out of this is post is a way that the rows whom check value has changed to be marked as changed/edited so that the data source will update the database with the values of the check boxes. If all rows are updated this is acceptable as well. I know this is a super simple solution but i have been out of the .NET for a little bit.

DataSource Controls :: System.Data.Datatable Updating SQL Server Image Field

Jul 1, 2010

I have a datatable for which i'm defining a dataadapter. I'm specifying an updatecommand with sqlparameters for the dataadapter I set the updatecommand's parameters using the following overload:


The length 16 is used because this is the length of the field according to sql (the image datafield is a pointer of size 16) I noticed .Net is actually truncating the string because of the length i'm setting. An image of size 3kb will properly upload if we set the length field to be greater than 3kb The question I have is what is the proper value (or strategy) to use in order to set for the length field so that ALL images will properly update to the database, with each using the appropriate size.

I guess i could theoretically set the length to be maxint, but this seems sloppy. Looking at sqlparameter documentation i didnt see an 'unlimited' or 'default' length i could set, which would allow each update statement called to use the appropriate size for the data length for that row.

C# - Code To Be Run Automatically When The Request Is Finished?

Oct 15, 2010

I have my own SQL based session class. I want to automatically commit the data in the session at the end of program execution (i.e. at the end of serving the page request). Do object destructors (finalizers) not get executed at the end of every request? Is there anyway of doing this instead of having to explicitly call a Dispose() method every time I am done with my session object?
