How To Get Values From Controls In Databound Formview Control

May 5, 2010

I'm working in a web application and my page is using a databound formview control. When i first enter the page via my code, I am unable to retreive a value from any of my controls -e.g. when i debug, i see that tbDate.text has no value (see code below). How can I retreive the values from the controls on my page e.g text boxes?


if (!this.IsPostBack)
TextBox tbDate = (TextBox)FormView1.Row.Cells[0].FindControl("txtDate");

Web Forms :: Formview Same Id For Controls Allowed Only If Databound?

Apr 5, 2010

I've got a formview with controls in different template views and I have a query just out of curiosity.

In my edit template I've got for example:

<asp:TextBox ID="IsPrestigeTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IsPrestige") %>' />
<asp:CheckBox ID="IsPrestigeChkbx" runat="server" />

and then the same code exactly in my insert template:

<asp:TextBox ID="IsPrestigeTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IsPrestige") %>' />
<asp:CheckBox ID="IsPrestigeChkbx" runat="server" />

However, the databound items seem to be allowed to have the same ID whereas the non-databound checkboxes arent.

What's going on there?

C# - Which Databound Control Should Be Use For Nested Databound Controls?

Dec 7, 2010

I want to render something like this (with ASP.Net Controls in the codebehind):

<li class="first"><h1>This is a caption</h1></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo3</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo4</a></li>
<li class="first"><h1>This is a another caption</h1></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo5</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo6</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo7</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo8</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo9</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo10</a></li>
<li><a href="#" title="" target="_self">Foo11</a></li>

The amount of li elements that will be rendered into each ul is determined at runtime. Each link in a li belongs to into a specific ul (the one containing a specific caption. Imagine this as a kind of a treeview with nodes and subnodes) During the bind Event I need access to an ASP:HyperLink that will be rendered into the a-element. Which databound ASP.Net control should I pick for this? Looks like a repeater in a repeater, which should make the databinding process ugly. I'm thinking about creating this HTML-Output with StringWriters myself.

Forms Data Controls :: DataBinding And DataBound FormView's Events?

Dec 27, 2010

I have a very simple form that contains a FormView Control Bound with a SqlDataSource, The DefaultMode of the FormView control is "Insert". I noticed that when I run the page for the first time, the databinsing and databound events of the FormView Control occurs after the PreRender Event of the page ! I know very well the life cycle of a page, but I dont know when the data binding occurs in the life cycle of a page and if it can differ from a control to another.

Is there an article or a tutorial explaining all those things.

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Update Mode Not Capturing Control Values?

Jul 22, 2010

I've been spending two days on this. My page formview is in a tab container and I need it to update, insert and display data. Insert and display are ok as long as the default mode is Insert. The problem here is edit mode, it's able to get values from the db(oracle) and display them in edit mode, but when I click save, any values I typed out on the textboxes do not get captured. When I call on my db update class, it just sends old db values. Here is the process: formview shows data selected from gridview, then an update button is clicked to edit the data. there is also a SAVE button to send updated data to db. Example: description textbox = "test", then I type out a different value, and in debug mode, the textbox.text still shows "test" after clicking save.

Forms Data Controls :: Databound DDL Inside Formview When SelectedValue No Longer Exists?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a page that has a formview on it. Client info, name, address, usual stuff. The formview is populated by a DataSource, that calls a SQL stored procedure for the client info. It all works great.Within the formview, I have a dropdownlist for the Staff assigned to the client (StaffId is a member of the Client record called during the Formview binding). When the formview is in Item mode, the Staff name appears in a label, when in Edit mode, the dropdownlist
is bound and populated by another DataSource that calls a stored procedure of ActiveStaff. When the assigned staff exists, the StaffId is correctly bound to the DDL SelectedValue and the current staff name appears selected in the DDL when in edit mode, as it should.

VS 2012 / Get FormView Control Values To Remain After Insert And Update?

Jun 4, 2013

I have a web app I'm creating and a form that has a formview control on it. The form's default is set to insert and when the user enters data and clicks save, the data gets saved to the database; only problem is that the form then clears all the data out of the controls.

Upon saving after updating or inserting, I'd like to set the form mode to edit and also have it retain the values they input into the form. I've tried a few things and have not had any luck.



Protected Sub frmCustomerInformation_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As FormViewInsertedEventArgs)
' Make sure record inserted properly.
If e.Exception Is Nothing Then
If e.AffectedRows > 0 Then
litMessage.Text = "Customer Information saved."

[Code] ....

What mode does the formview control have by default after it executes the ItemInserted method? Also, what is the prper way to do this?

Populating A Listbox From SQL Server In Databound Formview

Oct 24, 2010

I am "trying" to switch my form from SqlDataSources to ADO.NET data sources. So I have a DAL setup, and ObjectDataSources in my form referencing these DALs. These data sources are bound to the form's objects. So far so good. In the InsertItem Template of one of the form's FormViews I have a list box that I am trying to populate with a value pair (ID, TechName) from a database table and I get the following error:
"Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control." Apparently, one of the two workarounds involves programmatically loading the listbox. The code below shows one of my attempts, resulting in the above mentioned error:

Protected Sub TestFillDefaultValueInFormView()
Dim vInspectorList As DropDownList
If (FormViewHydInspection.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Insert) And Not IsPostBack Then
vInspectorList = DirectCast(FormViewHydInspection.FindControl("DDlstInspBy"), DropDownList)
Dim vInspectorDA As New DataSetHydrantsTableAdapters.TechnicianTableAdapter()
Dim vInspectors As DataSetHydrants.TechnicianDataTable = vInspectorDA.GetTechnician()
Dim vInspRow As DataSetHydrants.TechnicianRow
Dim vInspectorHT As New Hashtable
vInspectorHT.Add("0", "Select Technician")
For Each vInspRow In vInspectors
If vInspRow.TechID <> 0 Then
vInspectorHT.Add(vInspRow.TechID.ToString, vInspRow.TechName)
End If
vInspectorList.DataSource = vInspectorHT
vInspectorList.DataTextField = "value"
vInspectorList.DataValueField = "key"
End If
End Sub

I tried populating the listbox directly using the Listbox.Items.add() method (which is the way I have it now so I could continue solving other problems, and it works!) but I could not find a way to add a value pair. I did try:

vInspectorList.DataTextField = "Select Technician"
vInspectorList.DataValueField = "0"
but that left a listbox without any data.

Forms Data Controls :: Databound Checkbox List, Default Values And SelectedIndexChanged Event

Jul 12, 2010

i have a check box list control that is used for showing related files to some post.

what i want to do is set the databound items "checked" to true by default


if a user unchecks some item and clicks the save button. then the selectedindexchanged will fire and i will do some logic.

what i have done is.

--Set All Databound items to "checked" --


in the end i want the item that was unchecked to be removed (all other items will remain checked). but even before that, when the user control is loaded all the files that were bounded are being deleted by the index change event.

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Insert Adds All Null Values - Update Doesn't Update Values

Apr 12, 2010

I have a typical gridview/formview master control setup. When I try to update or insert I don't get any errors but it also doesn't work. When I try to insert data all I get are null values and when I update, none of the values are updated. The formview looks like its working, but just doesn't. The primary key is an identity and it auto-increments by one.

C# - Dynamic Controls In Databound Control?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a control that inherits CompositeDataBoundControl. Based on the values of the bound data, I create som dynamic controls. In order to preserve state, I need to recreate the control tree on every request(from CreateChildControls):


The problem is that on postback the PaymentMethod object is null, so I have no method of knowing what kind of control to recreate. That means that the control state is ruined. If I hardcode the type of payment control to make, it works as expected:

UserControl userCtrl = (UserControl)Page.LoadControl("~/WAF/View/VisitControls/Shop/CreditCardForm.ascx");
userCtrl.ID = "CreditCardForm";

how I can find out what payment method is used, so that I can create the correct control on postback?

Forms Data Controls :: FormView Loses New Values On Error?

Feb 3, 2011

The new values entered by a user are lost when a error occurs.

I tried to solve this by catching the error in the item updated event as per the code below


however the data in the form gets set back to the original values.

It seams as though the object data source is rebinding the form. How can i determine if this is the case? Is there a way to stop the datasource from rebining?

Forms Data Controls :: Refresh Databound Control On AJAX Tab?

Jan 6, 2010

I have an AJAX tab container with 2 panels within aspx page. Each panel hosts an ascx control. Each control contains GridView and FormView that are databound - 1st control to the parent table and 2nd - to the child. The 2nd control/tab contains standard DropDownList that is bound to the parent values so the user can select a parent to create "child" for. everything works fine except when the parent (on the 1st tab control) is created/updates the ObjectDataSource on the 2nd tab does not getting refreshed. Only after refreshing the hole page I can see the new "parent" value in the ddl on "child" page. I use strongly typed dataset. How I can programmatically refresh the DataSource? Simple rebinding didn't make a dent. Do I need to refresh page, the tab container, tab panel?

Forms Data Controls :: Use Eval Or Bind In A Databound Control?

Sep 8, 2010

I have a repeater I've databound with a generic arraylist from a LINQ query (.ToList() ) in the code behind.

I was using

<%# Bind("FirstName")%> but noticed
<%# Eval("FirstName")%> works just as well.

Is it better to use Eval or Bind? or does it depend on the situation?

Forms Data Controls :: Adding Calculated Fields To A Databound Control?

Oct 14, 2010

I need a form that displays three columns drawn directly from a database (no problems here) as well as two fields that require some complex calculations. Not only am I lost as to how to incorporate the calculations into the control, I don't know exactly how to write the calculations. I am working in Visual Web Developer 2008 with Vb.NET.

The first of the two fields should take the sum of all payments made by a given customer and divide it by a DailyMembershipRate, returning a DaysPaid variable. It should take this variable and a CustomerSince field for that particular customer and calculate a PaidThrough field.

The second of the two columns similarly requires the DaysPaid variable described above. It should subtract the CustomerSince field from the current date and return the value in days, giving a MembershipDays variable. Finally, it should subtract MembershipDays from the DaysPaid variable, again returning a value in days, and then multiply this by the DailyRate value for a Credit/Deficit field.

I realize this is a lot, but I haven't been able to find any documentation either online or in VWD or ASP.NET texts on this topic. I could really use some fellow user input.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Set DataList's EditItemTemplate To User Control And Databound It

Feb 24, 2011

I have DataList control and I want to assign to it's edititemtemplate some User Control. The problem is I can't find when I should databound UserControl to data, as my UserControl doesn't have static look (it renders different depending on some property values and datasource).

I was try to simply set my user control in edititemtemplate

<uc:MyUserControl id="myUserControl1" runat="server" />

and then bind it to data in ItemDataBound event handler, but it remains empty

if(e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.EditItem)
var p = (Pair)DataBinder.GetPropertyValue(e.Item.DataItem, "Key");
((AnnouncementUserControl) e.Item.FindControl("userControl1")).RepeaterDataSource =
_templateWorker.ReturnTemplateByAnnouncementId(Convert.ToInt32(p.First), true);

how can I databound my control, or another approach which will make me avoid this problem?
