In my base page, I have a dropdownlist control which loads different usercontrols on selectedindexchanged event.

While loading these usercontrols, my page postbacks all the page. I used updatepanel but again same problem.

Is there any way to load controls without postback? I Really need help as soon as possible.

Here is my code:

protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (Session["control"] != null)
            string c = Session["control"].ToString();
            if (c == "1")
                iuc = (IlkogretimUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/Ilkogretim.ascx");
                dl.SelectedValue = Session["control"].ToString();
            else if (c == "2")
                luc = (LiseUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/LiseUC.ascx");
                dl.SelectedValue = Session["control"].ToString();
            else if (c == "3")
                youc = (YuksekokulUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/Yuksekokul.ascx");

How to create a dynamically populated items in a listbox and use it as a navigation?

Hello, I am trying to create navigation inside a listbox menu. I load data from xml to populate a list. Each item in the list box should be a link or button. Then, I create a frame to load xaml pages in it. I tested to load pages employing button control, outside listbox with on click event and it worked well. However, I cannot make it work with list box items. I am hoping to get help from you. Any sample or ideas are highly appreciated. Below is the code:  XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Pages> <page id="page01"> <name>Page 01</name> </page> <page id="page02"> <name>Page 02</name> </page> </Pages> C# to initiate a click o n listbox item and get the path to page: private void SelectionChanged(object sender, System.Windows.Controls.SelectionChangedEventArgs e) { ListBoxItem lbi = ((sender as ListBox).SelectedItem as ListBoxItem); string itemName = lbi.Content.ToString(); if ( Nav_ListBox.SelectedItem.Equals("Page01" ) ) { ContentFrame.Source = new Uri("Pages/Page01.xaml", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute); } } XAML:  <ListBox x:Name="Nav_ListBox" Margin="0" ScrollViewer.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden" Background="#FFF2F2F2" ItemTemplate="{DynamicReso

User Control Web Part - The type initializer for 'IBM.Data.DB2.DB2Connection' threw an exception.



I need help, in our SharePoint 2007 project we have created Web Part using VS 2005 & .Net 2.0, User Control. In the user control for one of the drop down list box databinding method we are using data from IBM DB2. It works fine on our local machine, but after Web Part deployment if i open the page then the Drop Down List is empty. I checked the log in the event viewer. I found the following error message in the vent viewer -

asynchronous call for data population in user control


i have a user control in which i want  to populate a drop down on blur event of text box asynchronously.. i tried with page method but it gives error as method is undefined.. then i tried with writing a web service..
and called a web service method in javascript on user control.. this also gives the same error as method is undefined...project is using master pages.. so the script manager is registered in master page..
so i added service reference as

ScriptManager sm = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
            sm.Services.Add(new ServiceReference("../Controls/MeetingTime.asmx"));

in user control...

below is my javascript call..

function getMeetingTime()
       var uclcmbUserId = document.getElementById('<%= uclcmbActiveClients.ClientID %>'+'<%= uclcmbActiveClients.ActualComboId%>');       

JQuery & dynamically instantiated User control



I have one problem which needs to be resolved immediately. I am using JQuery Datatable (http://www.datatables.net/).

This JQuery datatable is present in one of my webuser control named "LeftVerticalLayOut.ascx". I am dynamically instantiating Webusercontrol on click of a link button. This link button is bound with the trigger event of Update Panel control.

So clarifying once again : I have one UpdatePanel which I am triggering with Link button("lnkLoadControl") . On click on "lnkLoadControl" I am able to load Usercontrol("LeftVerticalLayOut.ascx") onto the updatepanel. Now the jquery datatable I am creating in load event of Usercontrol is getting generated.


After the datatable(having id as "example") is created, I am calling the below code in my

function loadHandler()

function BeginRequestHandler(sender, args)

function EndRequestHandler(sender, args)

Tab Control - load user controls in tab dynamically when tab is selected


I have searched the forum and I cant seem to find the answer to my question, although I have tried some of the hints I have found with no luck....

Can someone show me a working sample (with source code) of a page with a TabContainer and several tabs, with each tab having a user control, but the controls are not added/initialized/shown until the appropriate tab is shown/clicked?

Something like this forum's "Write a New Post" page, where the tabs load after I click on them, and an animated picture displays to show that its loading.

The solution needs to add user controls to the page, not just html into a dynamic populate extender.

I have one user control per tab, and is linked (ala master-child relationship) to the page using a property. My user controls perform long-running web service queries, and I dont want to waste database/computing resources loading content into a tab that the user will never look at.   Right now, all tabs load their content when the page loads, even though the first tab is only shown.

As mentioned above, sample code for the page (.aspx and .cs) and the user control (.ascx and .cs) would really help.

Easily manipulate data with the GridView control in ASP.NET 2.0

Last week, I introduced ASP.NET 2.0's GridView data control and covered the basics of using it. This week, I go a step further by going into the details of working with the data contained in the control. This includes viewing, editing, and deleting data. Thankfully, the GridView control makes it easy to utilize these features. Before diving into these topics, I begin with an examination of the different field types supported by the GridView control.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

Sorting Data in a GridView Web Server Control

The GridView control provides built-in sorting functionality without requiring any coding. You can further customize the sort functionality of the GridView control by using custom SortExpression property values for columns as well as by using the Sorting and Sorted events

Multiple Instances of User Control


I have a user control that I place on a page severl times.  When I make a selection on a ddl in one one control the SelectedIndexChanged event fires for all the control on the page for that ddl.  So I get duplication of an insert that I do.  Is there a way to make sure these events are isolated so this doesn't happen.
