DataGrid: Tailor Your DataGrid Apps Using Table Style and Custom Column Style Objects


One of the most enduring challenges in writing user interfaces is figuring out how to display large amounts of data efficiently and intuitively without bewildering the user. The problem becomes particularly thorny when the interface must reflect hierarchical relationships within the data that the user needs to modify. The Windows Forms DataGrid control gives developers a powerful and flexible tool to meet this challenge. This article explains its basic operations and shows how to extend the DataGrid to display columns of data in an application-appropriate manner.

Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Adding table to a page, but the format lost when I use clear border



I added a table to a page, by default, the table layout is the light border. So, I add my content and the vertical align seems to set to the top. But when I changed it to clear border, the content of the table will set vertical align to center. Is there a way to change this back to top align but with the clear border. I don't think I can do this by what is available in the ribbon. Please advice.

SQLCE table column DefaultValues don't show up in XSD Dataset designer

Using Visual Studio 2008 with SQL CE 3.5, I notice that default values in the creation scripts for the database tables are not reflected in the dataset designer XSD file.  For example, the following SQL script creates the non-nullable table column names "Content" with a default value of 'Image':    "Content" nchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'Image',But in the column properties of the dataset designer (XSD) panel, this column correctly shows up as non-nullable, but with a DBnull default value as follows:     Name: Content    Allow DBnull: False    DefaultValue: <DBnull>Am I missing something somewhere, or is this a VS bug?  Also, how do I get the XSD file to regenerate after schema changes in the database?  Sqlmetal doesn't do it.Thanks,    -BGood

SSRS 2008 - repeating a non column header column on every page

Hi - I am working on my first SSRS report and I have mostly all of it down except one issue. Per requirements, I need to display a column that is a non header column to repeat on every page while printing and or when I save the generated report in SSRS as a PDF file. I have seen some previous blog from 2007 where RepeatWith property is recommended to be set to the same name of the Tablix in which the column(s) are embeded, tried that but it is not working. Can any one help me on this or guide me how to resolve this? Thanks, Manny

How to recover from Derived Column Transformation Editor corrupting table metadata?

Hi there, In attempting to use the DCTE to replace the value in a field with a trimmed version (SSN = trim(SSN)), it seems that my meta-data has become corrupted by the Derived Column drop-down list. As a result, #1: I no longer see my incoming SSN field in the "columns" tree, and any reference to it is deemed "invalid", even though it's value does make it out of the Data Transformation process. How can I get back the reference to this field without redoing this entire task? And, #2: in the process, DCTE created new columns with "SSN" prefixed by the task name, such as "trim character fields.SSN". How can I delete these? It seems that one slip of the mouse in this form can lead to irreversible corruption of the meta-data, which the "debugger" then references and uses to "invalidate" subsequent work. I have tried everything I can think of to refresh this, including using the "Advanced Editor" and reloading the entire package. Any ideas? Thanks, Karl Kaiser

How to pass page column value to data view parameters

Hi All, I have a page library with custom column, lets call it "FormCourseId". On that page I have data view which retrieves data from custom list filtered by page column "FormCourseId". In parameter wizard creates the following tag <ParameterBinding Name="ListCourseId" Location="Form(FormCourseId)" DefaultValue=""/> Then I try to use that parameter in XSLT of data view as a filter creteria.  <xsl:param name="CourseId"></xsl:param> It does not work for me. If I change data view parameter source from Form to Query String and pass parameter as url one it works fine. What is wrong with page column parameter binding? May be if FormCourseId column is not presented in form layout as a field(I do not need to show that field in user form of the page) it could not be treated as form parameter?

How to filter managed meta data column using page query string?

I have two managed term sets as follows: Articles:Downloads Projects:Downloads I am trying to use a content query web part to filter a list based on the above manged meta data column. I want to filter out only "Articles:Downloads" Scenario 1: When I edit the web part and directly set the filter option with the managed meta data column to "Articles:Downloads" it works fine. When I export the web part, in the .webpart file, the "FilterValue1" property has a value "Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910". Scenario 2: I want the web part to get the filter information from query string [PageQueryString:pageType]. So I tried using these options: a) pageType=Downloads      This works but returns downloads under 'projects' as well. (i want downloads only under 'articles')  b) pageType=Articles:Downloads     Does not work and shows no records c) pageType = Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work. (This value is the same as one found in 'FilterValue1' of the static web part). c) pageType = Articles:Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work. d) pageType = 9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work.   What am I missing here? Can some one please help?

How to get column value difference of rows in same table

Dear all, I need a TSQL statement to find the difference of values of two rows in the same table, by taking into consideration some conditions. I have the following rowss in a table named table1 dbname  sqlinst     size1   ddate sqldb1    inst1        200    1/1/2009 sqldb1    inst1        250    1/1/2010 sqldb1    inst1        170    1/1/2008 sqldb2    inst2        300    1/1/2009 sqldb2    inst2        340    1/1/2010 I need to find the difference between size1 values, for columns where their dbname and sqlinst are the same. I also need to define in TSQL that the ddate of row from where I subtract (size1) from is 1/1/2010 and that the ddate of the row I subtract (size1) is 1/1/2009 (e.g. in the above example: for sqldb1 inst1, I need to perform 250-200 and ignore 170, and for sqldb2 inst2  340-300). Please let me know if you have a solution for this. A million thanks!
