Master-Detail with the GridView, DetailsView and jQuery's ThickBox

One more article about grids from Matt Berseth. This time he shows how to create master-detail with the gridview, detailsview and jQuery's ThickBox. He writes:
So I thought I would check some of this out and along the way rebuild my Master-Detail with the GridView, DetailView and ModalPopup Controls and replace the ModalPopup with jQuery's ThickBox. I found it pretty interesting - read on to see how it went

Passing Primary Key to User Control to Display Record Detail


I'm building a user control to display detail information on a parent record. The user control will be displayed via an Ajax Modal Popup. The user control works and is displayed when expected. The problem that I'm having is that I'm not able to pass in the primary key for the parent. The control is displayed via the _ItemCommand event of a Repeater. In the markup for the user control, I explicity set the ContactId to 0 to avoid an error when the control loads (its still underdevelopment, eventually that I'll check if the value is valid).

I was assuming that I could change the property in the _ItemCommand event, but obviously its not working.

In the Page_Load event this code successfully sets the ContactId property of the control. The _ItemCommand event appears to set the value. However when I set a test label on the user control to the Me.ContactId, its showing '0' as if it was never passed in.

        UserControlContactDetail.ContactId = "1462"
        test.Text = UserControlContactDetail.ContactId

    Protected Sub RepeaterDirectory_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs) Handles RepeaterDirectory.ItemCommand

many-to-many / NM: find the master-record that contains a (NM-) list of given detail-records


Hi there,

I'm starting to pull my hair out (not much left, actually).

I have a simple table construct with two tables plus an NM-table in between. To illustrate this, I've tried to abstract this down to something (hopefully) easy to understand.

Let's assume I have a table of products (#Products in the SQL below). I also have a table (#Combos in the SQL below) that merges those products into a list of valid combinations (call these "product packages", if you like). Combinations may thus contain 1..n products each. As a result, I have a NM-table that connects #Products and #Combos (#CombosProducts in the SQL below).
For instance, I could have one combo that consists of product 1 only, then one that consists of product 1 and product 2, then one with product 1 and three and so on.

At runtime of an application, I now get a list of products (think of this as a view) and now need to find the record in #Combos that references the same combination of products.

Here's a script that I hope illustrates the problem:

-- Create some (temporary) tables
CREATE TABLE #Combos ( ComboID varchar(10) NOT NULL );
CREATE TABLE #Products ( ProductID varchar(10) NOT NULL );
CREATE TABLE #CombosProducts ( ComboID varchar(10), ProductID varchar(10) );

--> Creat

display an icon in gridview - selectively


I've created an ExpenseReport application which allows users to attach receipts to Expense Report Lineitems. These are contained in a gridview using a template field:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="File" InsertVisible="False">
                    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("filename", "~/workflow/Images/attachment.jpg") %>'
                runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("filename", "http://workflowserver/AtWork/workflow/ExpenseReport/retrieveattachment.aspx?attachment={0}") %>' Text="" />  

The trouble I have is that the 'attachment.jpg' icon shows for every lineitem (even one that does not contain an attachment).

I would like to be able to selectively display this icon or show a different icon if there is NO attachment.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm kind of stuck... ;-)

Thank You.
