How to Access Parent Page (.aspx) control (IDs) from its child User Control (.ascx)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a parent .aspx page that has a asp:panel control in it, and this parent .aspx is also referencing a user control that I registered in that .aspx. Lets just call it usercontrolA.ascx for this post.The user control has a radiobuttonlist itself.Based on a selection from the radiotbuttonlist in the user control, I want to be able to hide the asp:panel in my .aspx (parent) but unfortunately I cant' get it to work:parentPanel.visible = true;  <<< I trried this in usercontrolA.ascx.csBut the user control doesn't know about the panel in the parent .aspxSo do I need to expose that somehow from the parent so that I can access it from the code behind of the child .ascx?  How?

How to access child(.ascx) page control from parent page(.aspx) javascript


I have functionality to select All check boxes on grid rows.

Child User control is having grid with checkbox to select all rows of grid. I want to select individual cell html from each row when I select all rows when checkbox 'select all' is clicked and place it into textbox which is in Parent page.

This textbox can only be in parent page.

So i need to call child(.ascx) page control from parent page(.aspx) using javascript as follows.

function CheckUncheckChildren(event)
        var childChkBoxes = document.getElementById('<%=gvUserDetails.ClientID %>').getElementsByTagName("input");
        var childChkBoxCount = childChkBoxes.length;
        var evtelem = (isIE())?event.srcElement:event.currentTarget;
        if(evtelem.checked == true)
            for(var i = 0; i<childChkBoxCount; i++)

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Not able to access child controls in user control using javascript



I have a user control "SettingsControl" containing an ajax:CollapsiblePanelExtender which in turn has a GridView (gridView) and checkBoxes. On top of GridView we have two LinkButtons "Select All" and "Clear All". I have written to enable select all and clear all functionality. Select All should select all the rows in the grid by calling the following JavaScript written on the Client .aspx file.

function SelectAll(chk)
    //get reference of GridView control
    var grid = document.getElementById('<%= SettingsControl1.FindControl("gridView").ClientID %>');
    //variable to contain the cell of the grid
    var cell;

    if (grid.rows.length > 0)
        //loop starts from 1. rows[0] points to the header.
        for (i=1; i<grid.rows.length; i++)
            //get the reference of first column
            cell = grid.rows[i].cells[0];

Propagate child event to a parent control in a user control

I developed a user control with using a picturebox and a label in .net.  Then I create an instance of the user control in a form. Here I wish to add an click event handler for that user control. I want to use only one click event handler for that control not for every controls (eg: picturebox ,label). Even an user click on a label ,picturebox or the form container, an UserControl_click event will be fired. How can I accomplish this?

Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control.

Removing a (child) user control from an observable collection

Hey all, so I have an ObservableCollection of UserControls.  These user controls have their own xaml and each of these has some type of "Close" button so it would be removed from the ObservableCollection. A groupbox is binded to the ObservableCollection so it would show all the UserControls.  When a user clicks on the "Close" button, the user control is removed from the ObservableCollection and thus, the groupbox.  How can I do this?  I've tried something like   (this .Parent as ObservableCollection<asdf>).Remove(this );   where asdf is a UserControl but I get a bunch of compiler errors.

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor
