Get Text Value in Gridview from Invisible Field

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello,  I've run into this before, but I was using a formsview and just changed the field to hidden.  If you've seen my previous post I am trying to get the value of a cell out of a gridview to a variable and here is the code: Protected Sub GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles GridView1.SelectedIndexChanged Dim varClientID As String = GridView1.Rows(GridView1.SelectedIndex).Cells(6).Text.ToString() End Sub This works perfectly if column 6 is visible, but because it's an id number (which is not the primary key) I do not want it visible, but changing it to visible="false" causes this code to return null.  Changing it back to visible and it works.I'm not sure why the visiblity of a control changes the functionality of it.Are there any other ways to get this data out?

FormView Text Field Being Set by A Drop Down List


Hello, I have a FormView which is used to insert a record into a database.  Outside of this formview i have a drop down list, I want to grab the value from that drop down list and set one of the text fields within the formview to it's currently selected value.  I've tried the following code, but the dynamic categorytextbox line is what seems to not be working.

                    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCategory" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" 
DataSourceID="SqlDataSourceCategory" DataTextField="CategoryName"
DataValueField="CategoryID" Width="200px">

                            <asp:TextBox ID="CategoryIDTextBox" runat="server" 
Text='<%# Bind("CategoryID") %>' Visible="False" />

        protected void FormView1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
dynamic varCategory = ddlCategory.SelectedValue;
dynamic categoryTextBox = FormView1.FindControl("CategoryIDText

gridview tablecell text emptystring in RowDataBound event when editing


HI and thanks in advance.  asp.net using vb, using a codebehind page.

I have a relatively simple gridview bound to an product table that displays great.  The problem comes when I choose to edit a row.  When I do so, the gridviews' RowDataBound event fires and the values of the text properties of the tablecells in the row evaluate to "" emptystring. 

I do notice that if I break within the GridView1_RowDataBound event during a refresh of the page, the values are there.  But again, when I hit the "Edit" button in the first column (the CommandField column) .  Text properties of the cells resolve to ""

 Here is the code for the event, followed by the gridview in the form (inside an updatepanel)

Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then  ' not a header, footer row.. etc.
            Dim cellProductNumber As TableCell = e.Row.Cells(3) ' ProductNumber column

'>>>>> after clicking "update", even though a value displays in the gridview,
' the cellProductNumber.Te

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Cleanest way of setting max string length for text in GridView cells?

I want to make sure that each row in the table is the height of one line of text only.  I know you can set RowStyle-Wrap="false", but I also don't want any really wide rows.  I know I can go through each cell on RowDataBound or something and cut it to a particular length and then append an ellipsis on the end, but is there a neater way of doing the same thing?

Adding starting text to a column field

I am wanting to know if there is a way you can add starting text within a field that displays within a page layout?  I have a page layout that has a field (column) called 'page summary'. What I want to do is when a content managers creates a new page based on that page layout, the text "This page contains a public notice" is automatically inserted in the page summary field and the content manager can continue typing or highlight the text and remove it. Kind of like adding a base 'Text Value' to the field (column).  I want to be able to do it without having to do custom code though.

Showing highlighted text (HTML) in calculated field?

Greetings all,   We're porting our 2007 list to 2010. In Sharepoint 2007, we used the following Calculated Column code to display a highlight over items that had different statuses:   =IF(Date="","<DIV style='background-color:#ff6666'>Not <b>Yet</b> Set</DIV>", IF(Finalized=TRUE,"<DIV style='background-color:#66ff66'>Finalized</DIV>", "<DIV style='background-color:#fffa91'>Tentative</DIV>"))   When we use this in Sharepoint 2010, it doesn't seem to apply the DIV structure. Any ideas of how we can change our code to make this work? Thanks! --Dave   No matter -- I need to add a code snipped ( http://marijnsomers.blogspot.com/2010/01/write-html-code-in-sharepoint-via.html ) to the page... thanks!

Update a field in a gridview to False on a Button Click

 Hi, Ive got a list of records in a gridview (from an SQLDataSource) where a field value is set to True.  I've also added a "reset" button in a template field at the start of the row in the Gridview. What I would like to do is allow the user to click the reset button on a particular row and 'reset' the true value to 'false' (updating the source data). Are there any idiot proof tutorials to do this??? Many thanks for your help! Fiorano

Rich text field showing html code

I am an end user of Sharepoint. This issue only happens from my computer, not from any other within our organization. What happens is that when I edit an item in Sharepoint that contains a rich text field, HTML code is showing. Like so: <div class=ExternalClassC900CFF4F2BF4312A89133C01A6E3C96> Some text</div> This happens from any web browser. Sharepoint 2007 is used. I have Windows 7 x64. Any idea what is causing this?

Use value binded to gridview to show text corresponding to the value

 Hi, I am developing a website which populates a gridview from an arraylist through binding it to the gridview. This data can come from the database or just be entered by the user. However, I have codes to represent the text values chosen by the user to reduce the memory requirements of the database. Is there a way bind a value to the database and then display the corresponding text. The text will be already on the webpage in the form of a dropdownlist. Any help would be really appreciated! I can't seem to find anything on this on the internet. Regards,       Seamus
