Using User Controls In FormView Templates?

Apr 24, 2010

I find the repetition of sets of controls for each of the EditItemTemplate, InsertItemTemplate, and ItemTemplate templates of a FormView to be tedious and risky, in terms duplicating layout and code etc. I would much rather create a xxxDetails user control, and use this in each template, cutting layout and code location down to one location.

However, this introduces several complexities for data binding scenarios. Are there any extablished patterns or practice guides for using user controls in these scenarios?

Forms Data Controls :: Editing The Default Templates In ListView And Formview?

Feb 18, 2010

This is probably a dumb question, but I have to ask because I spend so much time editing my formviews and listviews. Is there a way to edit the default template setup for these controls, in the code or somewhere? When you drag them over you get the default text with textbox column names; then I spend over 30 mins editing each to look the way I want it to.

I know I can create standard templates for WebForms and save them as Exported Templates.

And is it possible to edit the default control when you drag them on to the page, to list certain attributes automatically. example (validation controls you always have to add ControltoValidate I would like to drag mine onto the page and it say controltovalidate="" and then all I do is fill in the blank. Intellisense is fine, but sometimes you get brain freeze after hours of web design and forget the needed attribute and you have all to go through all of the errors and mistakes.

The ultimate would be, to drag a FormView Control and when you Refresh the Schema, you get textboxes, label controls instead of text for column name, and divs for forms, and Image Buttons , I am sure there is an XML file that runs the code that you can edit or something.

OR

ASP Developers, When you develop the next ServicePack allow us to edit or create default templates to customize the default templates, in VS and VWD.

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Force Table Width In Templates?

Mar 29, 2010

to force a table width in Formview control templates? I have created a table in the ItemTemplate that works fine but I can't seem to get the table to fill the entire width of the display area. I tried wrapping the entire FormView
in a div tag and setting the width to 98% but it didn't work either. Aplogies in advance if this has already been asked. I found a lot of references to GirdView (which didn't help) and nothing helpful r/e FormView except the div tag suggestion.

Here is the code I am using for the ItemTemplate (VS 2008, VB [preferred], in a master page):

Sample ItemTemplate

<ItemTemplate>
<table cellspacing="0" style="width:98%;">
<tr>

Use The Same IDs In Different FormView Templates?

Mar 3, 2010

I understand that only one FormView template is rendered at any given time, so is it ever a problem to reuse child control IDs?For example, the insert and edit templates are identical in this FormView, each has a TextBox in which a user may enter their name. Would it be a problem (or a bad idea) to give both text boxes the ID "NameTextBox"?Better yet, is there a way I can create a single template that is used in both insert and edit modes? With the same code-behind, event handlers, etc? I found a forum thread somewhere that suggested creating a web user control to use in both insert and edit modes - is this typical?

Modifying Default Templates For FormView?

Feb 4, 2011

I use the FormView control quite a bit, but I wish I had more control over the default templates.

When I drag a FormView from the toolbox onto my page and point it to a DataSource control it prepopulates the ItemTemplate, EditItemTemplate and InsertItemTemplates, but it doesn't do it very well.

For example, the InsertItemTemplate looks like this by default:

<InsertItemTemplate>
id:
<asp:TextBox ID="IDTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("id") %>' />
<br />
Name:
<asp:TextBox ID="NameTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Name") %>' />
...
</InsertItemTemplate>

But what I would prefer is a good old fashioned html table

<InsertItemTemplate>
<table>
<tr>
<td>
id:
</td>
<td>
<asp:TextBox ID="IDTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("id") %>' />
</td>
<tr>
...
</table>
</insertItemTemplate>

I know I can use a DetailsView to get a table rendered out, but I end up modifying the form so much that I prefer to use the FormView. It's just that I would like Visual Studio to start me out a bit closer to where I want to end up.

I would imagine that there is a T4 template somewhere in the guts of VS that I might be able to modify to get this done.

C# - FormView Templates Break When Refactored To Master/Content?

Apr 27, 2010

Let's say I have an abstract class IA, with subclasses A1, A2, A3.For each subclass, I had a page with a FormView to insert/edit/view, with code specific to that class. The templates for insert/edit/view are all very similar, so it was mostly cut & paste, and the compiler had no problem that there were controls with the same IDs in the different templates.Something like this:

<asp:FormView>
<InsertItemTemplate>
<asp:Label id="Label1" />

What Is The Best Way To Implement "Copy To New" Functionality With FormView Control And Content Templates

Nov 30, 2010

I have a FormView control in an ASP.NET page. I use the InsertItemTemplate and EditItemTemplate to provide data manipulation functionality, and it is working very well. I would like to allow the user to "Copy to new" from an existing item. In other words, I want the user to be able to display an item as if they are going to edit it, then, if they click a "Copy to new" button, it will load the information from that item into an "Insert" form so they could just change the bits of data that they want, and insert the new item.

The data objects we are dealing with are fairly large so, providing this functionality will save the user a lot of data entry misery.

I have experimented with copying the existing EditItemTemplate controls in the Copy button's click event, storing them, and writing them to the new InsertItemTemplate controls, once the form is reloaded (in the Page_PreRender event). But this is pretty ugly stuff. There has to be a better/simpler way.

Forms Data Controls :: .NET 3.5 FormView With User Entered Primary Key Update Error?

Aug 9, 2010

I'm trying to create a Formview in ASP.net 3.5. The underlying SQL Server table does not have an identity field based Primary Key. The primary key is a 4 character user entered field. I have created the form and all looks good but I get the following error message when I try to insert a record

Could not find a row that matches the given keys in the original values stored in ViewState. Ensure that the 'keys' dictionary contains unique key values that correspond to a row returned from the previous Select operation.

I thought ViewState was supposed to resolve the issue. I have viewstate enabled on the page and the formview but that doesn't seem to make a difference.

How can I create a form view with a user-entered text field as the primary key and get the b.... thing to work?

Forms Data Controls :: Filter On User.Identity.Name - FormView Disappearing From The Web Page?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a FormView and the SELECT statement I have is as follows:

SelectCommand="SELECT [UserName], [Full_Name_1], [Full_Name_2], [Email], [Address], [City], [State], [Zip_Code], [Home_Phone], [Cell_Phone] FROM [Homeowners] WHERE ([UserName]='<%$ User.Identity.Name %>')"... but it results in the FormView disappearing from the web page. Note: at the top of the page,
<%= user.identity.name %> displays the name fine, so user.identity.name does contain the info I'm looking for.I am trying to figure out how to correctly format the SELECT filter to feed user.identity.name to the SELECT statement as a filter. ... or if there is an alternative way.

Forms Data Controls :: FormView Clearing Value Set In Page_load / Initialize A Date Field In The FormView to Today's Date?

Sep 2, 2010

I have a page with a FormView on it. The page is strictly for adding records to a Table. I have the FormView bound to an EntityDataSource and everything works greate except for one thing.

I want to initialize a date field in the FormView to today's date. So, in my page_load event I have:

if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{
//Initialize SetupDate to today.
TextBox setupdate = (TextBox)fvJob.FindControl("txtSetupDate");
setupdate.Text = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
}

The first time this page loads, the txtSetupDate field is initialized.

Although, and subsequent loads of the page doesn't initialize the Text Box. I step through the code in the debugger and I can see that the code is executig, but something (the FormView bind?) is "clearing" the Text Box.
