changing font color on a data column field based on the contents

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I am trying to change font color if the datafield has the string EMERGENCY. This is my original template field: <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Type" SortExpression="DigType"> <EditItemTemplate> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DigType") %>' ></asp:Label> </EditItemTemplate> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DigType") %>' ></asp:Label> </ItemTemplate> </asp:TemplateField>   and this is what I thought would work: <EditItemTemplate> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DigType") %>' ForeColor='<%# IIf(Eval("DigType")="EMERGENCY","Black", "Red") %>'></asp:Label> </EditItemTemplate> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DigType") %>' ForeColor='<%# IIf(Eval(&quo

Is there any way to populate an InfoPath form field with the data from the site content type column?


I have a Form library with a form template.

The templat has a field "Office name" which should not be a fixed list of values, but a dynamical list, feeded from a different type of form. I'm a novice with InfoPath - Sharepoint and I want to find out, how can I can give users a possibility to create and maintain a list of offices and also have this list as a selection list inside main library form - ALL inside one library, if possible.

I assumed that if I publish main form (Itinerary) as a library template form and lookup form (OfficeInfo) as a SiteContent, I should be able somehow to connect to siteContent column and it's information. But I cannot see how - Site Content Gallery is not appering as a Connection item.

Can I use SiteConenct for this purpose or there are other ways to create end-user lookup lists?

Thank you!


Combine multiple xml elements into one column field based on subheading


I need to pull down data from a third party vendor's SQL view, where one of the columns is xml. I've never worked with xml before; unfortunately our vendor was not willing to change the format to what they were previously providing.

XML Example:

<ResponseDTO xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

Routing of Records to a particular folder (in a hiearchy) based on contents of a metadata column


Hi, i'm looking for ideas to solve a problem that is roadblocking our sharepoint 2010 records management implementation.  We have set up our sharepoint 2010 records center to mimic our existing folder based records management system.  We would like to stamp each of our documents with a piece of meta data (called classification) which contains the path to the records center folder in which this document should reside.  Our users are familiar with this structure and we can setup defaults for a lot of documents so getting the value in the meta data is not a big issue.

The issue is that we would like to create a content organizer rule that would forward a document to a path defined in a meta data column to the matching column in the records center.  I don't beleive this is possible OOTB but i would love to be proven wrong.  I don't want to manually have to create a rule for every folder / meta data value combination because there are thousdand of folders in the existing records center folder.

I'm open to developing a custom solution to this problem (or hiring someone to doe this), however not sure where to start... use the content oganizer object or a sharepoint timer job?  Don't want to have to reinvent the wheel...

here is and example of what i mean by the metadata / folder pair

Filter Data View Web Part based on a field



I am trying to filter a data view web part based on a choice made by the end user. I have a lookup field in the Pages list that displays the Title of all pages within that list. I want it so that when an end user selects something from that field that it will filter the list accordingly. Do I need to create a variable, parameter or something of that nature?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.


Changing column Data Type when using merge replication: RFC on my SMO code.


I maintain an application for that uses SQL 2005 / 2008 for data persistence.
Some clients use Merge Replication (pull or push) to replicate data.

Some of the data the application stores should be "versioned". All versions of a row containing medical information should be stored, somewhere in a database. This means all updates and deletes to those rows should result in in 2 affected rows:

  • a copy of the row before the change
  • a row containing the change (or the deletion of the row in question)

I plan to achieve this using triggers on all the tables for wich "versioning" is required.
The old versions of a row may be stored in the same database, an other database (or a database on a linked server).

Unfortunalty, the AFTER UPDATE, DELETE triggers do not support TEXT, NTEXt an IMAGE data type columns.
Thus I am required to convert all text, ntext and image columns to their respective "new" data types, varchar(max), nvarchar(max) and varbinary(max).

This is not a big issue when the database is not published, but when it is... most articles (and posts) i've read suggest:

  1. Add a column of the target data type to the table, copy data from source column. rename columns and drop the source column.

  2. Create a temp table (with the s

InfoPath 2003 - Populate Data Field based on text field from secondary/different data source.


I have a form where the main fields are populated based on the results of a query field.
Ex, Main Data (SQL) Source: 

Fruit         Color
Apple       Red
Orange     Orange
Pear         Green
Banana     Yellow

Secondary Data Source (Sharepoint List)
Fruit         Code
Apple        1001
Orange     1002
Pear         1003
Banana     1004

What I would like to do is create form fields that will automatically populate based on the contents of the text field.
Ex,  (text field)   Please enter your fruit of choice:   [ Apple ]

(Field 2 - from main SQL data source)          The color of your fruit is [ RED ]

(Field 3 - from secondary Sharepoint List data source)  Your fruits code is  [ 1001 ]


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Filtering Support Contact Field Based On Three Column Selectors in SPD 2007


How do I get a filtered list of support contacts and pre-fill/update that form field based on the selectors/list columns Application Group, Application, and Database in Sharepoint Designer.  Only application group is required and, depending upon what is selected in application group, it may or may not cascade application column entries to the application selector which, in turn, may or may not cascade database column entries to the database selector. 

So, not all selectors will have a value and I need to filter on one, two, or three column values to get by final list of support contacts from that column.  In InfoPath, I was able to do it using a CAML query in code behind but I'm at a loss on how to do it in SPD 2007.   The reason I'm not still using InfoPath is because the powers that be will not allow any code-behind in the collabrative environment.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!

Beyond ASP: XML and XSL-based Solutions Simplify Your Data Presentation Layer


The combination of XML and XSL can provide a powerful alternative to ASP development. This article presents arguments for building even small-scale Internet applications on the XML model. An example written with traditional ASP programming is compared to the same example written with XML and XSL in order to show the benefits of this approach. The example is followed by nine good reasons to make the switch. These reasons include separation of presentation and data, reusability, extensibility, division of labor, enhanced testing, and legacy integration. The XML/XSL solutions described hold the promise of greater simplicity, flexibility, and durability than ASP solutions built the traditional way.
