Web Forms :: Accessing Textbox.text From Another Page?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a multiline textbox on one page and need to access it on another page that is opened in a new tab via a hyperlink.

I have tried to store the textbox.text in session memory by session("text") = textbox1.text

however, when I use this on the new page to access the text, all the formatting is lost (eg new lines etc.)

Is there any way I can access this text in the new page and still maintain its formating including blank lines

C# - Gridview FooterRow Textbox Text Is Null When Accessing From Code Behind

Oct 27, 2010

I have a GridView with the following columns

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Name">
<asp:TextBox ID="txt_Name" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:Label ID="lbl_name" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "t_Name") %>' />
<asp:TextBox ID="txt_name" runat="server" Width="100px" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"t_Name") %>'></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Created By">
<asp:Label ID="lbl_tabcreatedby" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "t_CreatedBy") %>' />
<asp:CommandField HeaderText="Modify" ShowEditButton="True" />
<asp:CommandField HeaderText="Delete" ShowDeleteButton="True" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Add a New Name">
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkbtn_AddName" runat="server" CommandName="Insert">Add Name</asp:LinkButton>

And then in the Code Behind I am trying to access the txt_Name Textbox as

protected void gv_Name_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
string t_Name = ((TextBox)(gv_Name.FooterRow.FindControl("txt_Name"))).Text;
// Insert Code

But I am getting null in the string t_Name everytime irrespective of what is the current Text of txt_Name.
However I can get the text if I disable the ViewState for the page.

C# - Setting A Textbox Text In Usercontrol From Page?

Jan 25, 2011

I have a usercontrol which contains a textbox. I now want to add variable to that user control, lets call it Text, which will populate the textbox with the value passed in. I thought this could be done in the "set" of the variable in the code behind of the user control.

public string Text
get {}
txtBox.Text = value;

txtBox is the ID of the textbox within the usercontrol. Does anyone know how this can be done?

Edit The problem I suspect is that I am setting the text value in the Page_Load of the page hosting the user control. Where should I be setting this value?

C# - Hide Text In A ASPX Page That Is Tied To A Textbox?

Sep 8, 2010

So there is a a table and a text box in one of the cells

<asp:TextBox ID="tbSomeTextBox" Columns="5" runat="server"> %

This textbox gets shown if a certain selection is made in a drop down. The problem is that I would like the "%" character to also be hidden or shown with the textbox.

I have tried putting the whole textbox control inside a DIVand in my JQuery hiding the DIV at the same time I hid the textbox.

<div id="divSomeDIV"><asp:TextBox ID="tbSomeTextBox" Columns="5" runat="server"> % </div

But I get an error in my java script that id="divSomeDIV" doesn't exist in the current context.


Wrapping that single character in a asp:Label seems like overkill.

Web Forms :: TextBox: OnTextChanging / User Is Clearing The Text, If The Length Of Text Becomes Zero?

Jul 20, 2010

I have a page with a text box, a button and a GridView. Enter an account number in the text box, press the check button and the result will show in the GridView.

I can only find TextBox1_OnTextChanged. But I want to have that while the user is clearing the text, if the length of text becomes zero, the GridView is clear out. So I am looking for OnTextChanging(). Well of course this function does not exist. How to achieve the same purpose?

Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Textbox Elements In GridView

Jul 12, 2010

I have a Gridview X in which there are 6 columns(5 template columns that are text boxes and 1 bound field). The user has the option of changing the value in the text boxes annd saving them. There is one more GridView Y that displays DB values(all 6 columns are bound fields). Initially X will show the values that being shown in Y, and when user changes the values in Y,he should be able to save it. If we are trying this using OnTextChanged event of asp:Textbox, there is a postback everytime the user makes a change in any of the textboxes. Instead i want it such a way that all the changed values should get concatenated together and should be sent to the DB.

Forms Data Controls :: DetailsView Accessing Textbox Through Code Behind?

Jan 25, 2010

I've been playing with a certain detailsview for most of last week. This particular control is located within a panel that is hidden until a user clicks a linkbutton on a gridview. Then the panel's visible property is set to true and the detailsview is populated based on the commandargument passed through the link button. What I've discovered is that with each postback, the datakey or control parameter, still not sure which or if both, is lost. I've discovered a lot about ViewState and how controls work and am a bit surprised that something as common as using a detailsview within a gridview wouldn't be handled better than it is now. I have been able to get the proper information to build a correct select statement when the user decides to edit a record. I am now working on an update statement, but for some reason while I have the right key to update the right record, I am unable to access the user-generated data that was entered in the details view.

For instance, I select record with ID of 1 in the gridview. It pulls up the detailsview and I can view it. I then click edit. The correct record is still there. (It was previously going to default). When I enter new text in a textbox and click update, the app still knows I am working with record #1 but doesn't seem to be able to find the textbox control. I have currently hard-coded a value into the field just to see if I could actually get the record to update and it did. I am using an OnInit to cause the sub to run and think this might be the problem. However, I have been unable to find a better way around this.

Here is the sub that executes on the OnInit() of the detailsview:

Protected Sub notes_binding()
If notesDetail.CurrentMode = DetailsViewMode.Edit Then
sqlNotesUpdate.UpdateCommand = "UPDATE [Oilchange_Notes] SET [notes] = '" & CType(notesDetail.FindControl("notes"), Textbox).Text & "' WHERE [vehicle_id] = " & Session("unitNumVal")
sqlNotesUpdate.UpdateCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.Text
End If
sqlNotesUpdate.SelectCommand = "SELECT * FROM [Oilchange_Notes] WHERE ([vehicle_id] = " & Session("unitNumVal") & ")"
End Sub

And this is the error I get: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. If I'm correct about why it's not pulling the actual value or even acknowledging the control exists and is actually 'notes' (it is), then at would point would be the best to place this code?

Forms Data Controls :: Accessing Textbox Inside ItemTemplate Of Gridview?

May 17, 2010

I've been searching all day for a solution to this, but nothing has worked.

Here's my scenario: I'm binding the gridview to a datatable. One of the columns is a textbox that will accept user input.

When a "submit" button is clicked, I need to loop through all the rows, get the textbox's text, and add them all together. Simple, right?

I've tried the following (this is on the "submit" button's click event):


The itemtemplate looks like this:


The txtDays.Text property is ALWAYS empty. UNLESS I assign it a value w/in the control. But then it's ALWAYS that value. I need to get the value of what the user enters.

Web Forms :: Accessing Master Page From Content Page - Raising Event?

Sep 10, 2010

Here is my situation: I have a user control that has a menu in it. This user control sits on my master page. It is my main navigation menu for my application. I am having an issue where, on one of my pages, users seem to be leaving the page before committing all changes to the database, which results in a loss of data. So what I want to accomplish is - if the user is leaving this page and the data has not been saved yet, I want to prompt the user and say something like "The information is not yet saved, are you sure you want to leave this page" in a modal popup. So my approach is this: In my menu user control, create an event handler called MenuClicked that is raised when the menu web control's (in the user control) MenuItemClicked is raised, I raise my custom MenuClicked event. Then on my master page, I can catch this event in NavMenu_MenuClicked. My problem is - I need to catch this event in my content page, not the master? Am I approaching this correctly?

Web Forms :: Accessing SiteMapDataSource On A Child Page From A Master Page?

Jan 19, 2011

I am just starting out with ASP.net and C#.

I have a master page that contains the main site navigation and a child master page that contains a secondary menu. I want to set the starting node on the secondary menu based on the selection on the main menu.

I can get the code to work when the menus are on the same page, but when I separate them into their respective master pages, I get an error saying "The name 'SiteMapDataSource2' does not exist in the current context".

I have tried playing around with the FindControl() method, but either it won't work or I'm not getting the syntax right. Most of the information I find is for a child page referencing the master page, but not the other way around.

How can I access the SiteMapDataSource2 control from the master page? If possible, can you include the exact syntax as I am still trying to get the hang of this.

Here is a basic representation of my code, with all of the uncessary stuff stripped out:

Master Page


Master Page Codebehind


Child Page
