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.

Web Forms :: Code-Behind Null Reference Exception Accessing Controls With Derived PageBase?

Feb 16, 2010

I have a class that derives from System.Web.UI.Page and have set my pages to derive from this custom page class instead of Page. At runtime, the controls are never initialized and throw a NullReferenceException. I've changed some class names and namespaces in the pasted code to protect the innocent. The only thing that I currently override in my PageBase is OnPreLoad and I do call the base.OnPreLoad. I'll eventually add more functionality to this PageBase but for now all that it has is this:


I've tried putting this into a class library (with System.Web referenced) and I've also tried moving the class into the web application and had the same results either way. As another strange twist, I have another class with derives from PageBase called IndexPageBase and it doesn't have this problem:

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

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?

C# - Cannot Retrieve Textbox Text From Code Behind

Oct 29, 2010

I have a Telerik:RadTextBox control in my markup called txtName. I'm trying to retrieve the inputed value in the code behind with foo = txtName.Text; but var and txtName always show an empty string.


<telerik:RadTextBox ID="txtName" Runat="server" Width="300px" />
campaign.Name = txtName.Text.Trim();

I guess the code couldn't be easier. Basically what's happening is, when I click my 'save' button, there's a postback and the text in the RadTextBox just disappears.

update Found the problem. My web.config file had a different version of the Telerik dll file that was actually in my bin folder.

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 :: 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.

WCF / ASMX :: Accessing A Published Web Service Gives Null Ref Exception?

Sep 2, 2010

I have an Asp.net web service that I created using Visual Studio 2005. I can acess the web service in my test environment, call methods and return data as expected. If this web service is published to the outside world (Outside of the company firewall), it will return a null why this might be happening? The same code is being used,against the same database. The only difference is that the published website is giving back the null reference exception. If I type in the URL for the web service "https://secure.theSiteGeist.com/wsIndigo.asmx" a list of methods for the web service is displayed in my browser. Yet if I try and call any methods on the web service I get back the null reference exception. Note that the URL I posted above is not the real name of my web service, but is just used for reference sake.

WCF / ASMX :: Access Denied And Null Returned While Accessing Web Services From Remote Server?

Sep 2, 2010

writing a web Service and one of its web method, I want it to download a png file in form

of buffer from remote server. And My consume application will write that buffer retured by Web service in to file on User's Computer.

However, I am able to do this using Local Web Service but when I published that service on my web server, I always get null retuned

And even in one of my test code while copying file from that server , I always get Access Denied.

Following things I have done for above issue.

1] I even tried making the Anonymous user for the web service the system administrator (with the correct password), to no avail.

2] I also tried sharing out the folder I'm pulling files from to allow access from Everyone.

[Previously same service was working fine on another remote server with IIS 7.0, we checked server IIS Settings but in vain.]

if you know where we are mistaken guide me to resolve this issue as its very urgent.
