Modifying the SqlDataSource SelectCommand prior to loading a page


I have a SqlDataSource setup in the markup on my page. After some new requirements, I am trying to find a way to modify the SelectCommand before the data is filled for the first time. The SelectCommand below will now be used by default since we'll always have the first param. I am faced with a need to modify the SelectCommand though, adding a second session parameter along with it. I tried to override the OnInit method but it didn't seem to help...it still used the default query. Is there a best way to accomplish this? Here is the section of markup I am referring to:

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManagerCustomerMaintenance" runat="server" EnablePageMethods="true"></asp:ScriptManager>
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSourceHD" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:HDOracleConnectionString %>"
        ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:HDOracleConnectionString.ProviderName %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE (HOME_PHONE=:HOME_PHONE)"
        UpdateCommand="UPDATE Customer SET CustomerEID=:Cu

How to retrieve data from SqlDataSource and pass to a variable?


Hi there,

I have a page in my website where there is very little code-behind. I only have two lines of code in Page_Load() and the rest of the code is declarative ASP.NET code. I have a FormView control which uses a SqlDataSource to get some order information. The SqlDataSource calls a stored procedure called usp_GetOrderDetails, here's the code for the SqlDataSource:

    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sdsFormOrderDetails" runat="server" 
ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ForexDB %>"
ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ForexDB.ProviderName %>"
SelectCommand="usp_GetOrderDetails" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"
UpdateCommand="usp_UpdateOrder" UpdateCommandType="StoredProcedure"
<asp:ControlParameter Name="orderId" ControlID="grdOrders" PropertyName="SelectedDataKey.Value" />
<asp:ControlParameter Name="orderId" ControlID="frmOrderDetails" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />

SqlDataSource how to change the stored procedures at run time



Is it possible to change the select, insert and update stored procedure of an SqlDataSource at run time. I don't mean to change the definition of the stored procedure, but I mean to change the assignment, i.e. To change the select stored procedure from "selectSP1" to "selectSP2" at run time. Is it possible?



SqlDataSource UpdateCommand using 2 tables


I have two tables

Trans  with fields TransID, Date, CustomerID and some other stuff

Customer with fields CustomerID, Name, TaxId

On the screen the user only sees the fields Date and Customer Name. CustomerID is behind the scenes only.


I'm using SqlDataSource. Having no problems with SelectCommand. I don't know how to construct the UpdateCommand and InsertCommand.

Let's say the user changes the date, then I need to do an UPDATE.

UPDATE Trans SET Date = @Date, CustomerID = @CustomerID results in an error message and the record is not updated.

I get an error on the page that says "Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: Input string was not in correct format".


I tried taking out the set for CustomerID and I still get the error on page.


Also, for inserting, the users will see a dropdownlist with Customer Names. I need to convert that to a CustomerID to be used in the new record being inserted in the database. I'm not sure how to do this.


Do I need to do something with Control Parameters?

Using SqlDataSource as the Datasource to Accordion



The accordion does not renders. What am I missing? I want to use a parent child kind of accordion. Perhaps the child is not defined correctly, but I would like to see at list the seven tabs with the name of each organ system show up. The numbers of records for each organ system varies and I need a text box for each organ/tissue to be displayed, so I can insert in a findings table.

Here is what I have

new protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            ModalPanel.Visible = false;
            ds1 = GetSqlOrganSystems();

protected SqlDataSource GetSqlOrganSystems()

         SqlDataSource dsL = new SqlDataSource();
            dsL.ID = "ds1";
            //#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Organ_System_ID" DataBinder.Ev

SqlDataSource and Parameters query


Hi everyone,

I'm on the edge wondering is it possible ? I have got 2 questions. Please help me out.

1. I have a GridView on my page and it uses sqldatasource with parameterized query. What I want to do is, on page load (where nothing has been selected so no parameter supplied), I want it to query everything (something like SELECT * FROM [this_table]) but since my SelectCommand is something like

SELECT * FROM [this_table] WHERE [this_column] = @someParameters AND [that_column] = @someParameters.

Can I play around with default value to achieve something like that but how ? Now, when the page loads, it doesn't show anything (No Gridview).

2. On my page, I made something like (username, gender, address, and more) and one single search button. That means, no single control enable auto postback. What I am trying to accomplish is building dynamic query

(if username specifed -> SELECT * FROM [this_table] WHERE [username] LIKE @username).

If both username and gender are specified (SELECT * FROM [this_table] WHERE [username] LIKE @username AND [gender] = @gender) and you know the rest. How can I do this using GridView and SqlDataSource ? To my knowledge, I can only specify one SELECT statement in a sqldatasource.  I am stucked and desparately looking for help. Thanks all.

Cannot properly join lists in SPD 2007


Ok, I have been reading all sorts of posts and such for about a week and still have no come up with any concrete answers.


I cannot properly join lists in SP 07. I say properly because I never get the option to select a field to associate one with the other. 

I select "Create new linked data source" from Data Source Library; Pane opens; Left Click "Configure Linked Data Source"; Add 4 to 5 lists from "Current Site"; Select Next; Select Join option but Next is greyed out. Is this supposed to be greyed out because they are lists? Can lists be joined? I see alot of examples on joining databases and excel pages but not too many on lists.

If I select next from the last point, open the linked sources and select my newly created linked source and click to show data, I can see all of the information in there. Problem is I don't believe the lists are really joined by anything since I never received an option for it. 

I also have been reading up on joined subviews but I never receive an option for  joined subview. Is the joined subview the way to go for lists? If so how?


I know these boards are fairly active and any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

Gridview Update outside of SqlDatasource


Is it possible to use a SQLDataSource to populate a gridview but not use the SQLDataSource for Updating?

I wanted to add the update code in the Gridview_RowUpdating event since it is a complex update I need to do.

I get this message when i click the update button

Updating is not supported by data source 'SqlDataSource1' unless UpdateCommand is specified.

dropdownlist bound to sqldatasource adds items instead of replacing on change



I have a series of dropdownlists on webform in ASP 4.0. The first drop down is filled upon load, and then when a user selects a value from that list, it populates the second dropdown. To accomplish this, I have a SQLdatasource with a parametersource of the first drop-down list control. This works great, except when a user changes their selection from the first drop down. It performs the query, but then adds the list of items to the ones that were already there from the previous selection, instead of replacing it with the new data. Here is the code:

 <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMajor" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="majortext" 
      DataValueField="majorkey" AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
         <asp:ListItem Value="0">Select Major</asp:ListItem>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlReq" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataTextField="req" DataValueField="admreqkey" 
            AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
                <asp:ListItem Value="0">Sel

insert into in combination with inner join


Hi All,

I have my data split in 3 tables for cascading dropdownlists.

How can I make an update statement of this select statement?

SELECT distinct BIER.Naam as naam1, BIER_L2.L2_Naam as naam2, BIER_L3.L3_Naam as naam3
	from BIER, BIER_L2, BIER_L3
	where BIER_L2.L2_ID = BIER.L2_ID and BIER_L2.L3_ID = BIER_L3.L3_ID
