Accessing controls / events on a master page from child page

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a problem i am trying to work out the best method with my limited skills. Im using vb.net ( VS 2010  ) I am using a dll for an IFrame , which is call from code behind.  On my site I havea masterpage which has two gridviews. ( GrdViewWebBureau is the one i am using for this  query)  GrdViewWebBureau is contained within an update panel and updated on a timer control trigger. GrdViewWebBureau updates the page with file counts and status from our clients. I can click on any one of the cells and the code behind is fired. What I am trying to do is put an IFrame on the master page and every time a user clicks on the grid, the Iframe is fired up.  I have tested the iframe and vb code behind from a dummy page and it works, however when the Iframe is on the master page it doeant work.  What I am tryingh to achieve is that no matter what page a user is on the site, they will be able to click on the GrdViewWebBureau and the iframe will fire with the correct childpage. Each webPage may also have an Iframe as well, so i dont know if it is possible to make the IFrame global and just call that control ??  I have no idea if 1 this is possible with the code i have and 2, if i have the brains to understand the who what why and when. Please can you look at my code and pass anyt suggestions / help /  solutions. Master Pa

Accessing master page controls from content page formview



I have a master page with a textbox that I want to use for a search, and display the results on the content page.

I've dragged in the datasource to the content page, and configured the formview to use that datasource... almost.

The issue I'm having is that on the last step of the configure datasource wizard where you select the parameters, I want to select the master page textbox control for the search parameter... but of course it's not available in the list. The list only allows me to choose controls from the content page.

How do I set this master page search box as the parameter for my datasource?

Any ideas would be much appreciated!



Not getting multiple composite controls on master page


I have created two composite controls in the same assembly and registered that assembly in a master page using <%@ Register tag.

When I try to use these controls using the registered tag prefix I am getting only one control along with the tagprefix .

How to get all the composite controls present in the registered assembly?

Maintain Controls State on Master Page.

I have Web Application which uses the Logged In User (Authenticated User) to query his Profile Data from Adabas/Unix using OLEDB. The application provides the user with about 21 different pages (Basic Info, Employment Info, Education, Dependants, Financial Info ...). The web application has a master page, and each profile data page is based on a User Control loaded in the Child ASPX Page. Since we are migrating our legacy applications from Adabas/Unix to SAP, the development Team has prepared web services to query for the same Profile Data from SAP using Web Services. Now, we have to modify the web application to consume the web services instead of using OLEDB to query Adabas. Since we are in the testing phase, and we have only very limited data in SAP, I have to provide temporary control to allow test query the Staff Profile for a Specified User (instead of the Authenticated User) and to select the Source: 1. SAP, or 2. Adabas.   So I am thinking to add the following "Control Section" in the Master Page:<div runat="server" id="divSAPTest" class="SAPTest"> <span>Test SAP Web Services. Enter Staff ID: </span> <asp:TextBox ID="txtSAPStaffID" runat="server" Width="60px"></asp:TextBox> <span>From: </span> <asp:DropDo

Accessing User Control that is in a Master Page

I have looked everywhere for how to do this and all I come up with is threads describing how to expose public properties.  I have a USER CONTROL in my  Master page. It is a search box with a text box and a dropdown for search type (last name, account number, etc) and a search button.  When the user clicks the search button, I open a new page that displays the results.  How do I pass the values from the USER CONTROL search fields to the new page?  I would post code, but I have nothing to post yet since I don't know where to start. I have tried exposing the public property of the user control, but I don't know how to retrieve those values on the results page.  Anyone have any sample code on how this is done? Thank you in advance for your help!

Accessing master page from content page? Raising Event?

Here is my situation:I have a user control that has a menu in it.  This user control sits on my master page.  It is my main navigation menu for my application.I am having an issue where, on one of my pages, users seem to be leaving the page before committing all changes to the database, which results in a loss of data.So what I want to accomplish is - if the user is leaving this page and the data has not been saved yet, I want to prompt the user and say something like "The information is not yet saved, are you sure you want to leave this page" in a modal popup.So my approach is this:In my menu user control, create an event handler called MenuClicked that is raised when the menu web control's (in the user control) MenuItemClicked is raised, I raise my custom MenuClicked event.Then on my master page, I can catch this event in NavMenu_MenuClicked.My problem is - I need to catch this event in my content page, not the master?Am I approaching this correctly?Thanks in advancesb

Check for session in master page before child page


I have a site which has restricted access.  Access is controlled via session variables.
There are a lot of pages to the site so I was going to check for the session variable via the page load event in my mater page.  However, on certain pages I use the session variable in that pages page load event.  This throws an error when the session doesn't exist, but what I want is the master page's page load to fire first.

Does anyone know how I could achieve this?

Now each and every thing is working fine in chrome and internet explorer. But in firefox, only the documnet.ready funciton works file in master page but does not work in child page.

for reference, you can check www.instruments.com.pk. You will see that it works fine in chrome and IE while child content does not load in firefox.

Any help will be appreciated.

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?


Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.


I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...
