Use value binded to gridview to show text corresponding to the value

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 Hi, I am developing a website which populates a gridview from an arraylist through binding it to the gridview. This data can come from the database or just be entered by the user. However, I have codes to represent the text values chosen by the user to reduce the memory requirements of the database. Is there a way bind a value to the database and then display the corresponding text. The text will be already on the webpage in the form of a dropdownlist. Any help would be really appreciated! I can't seem to find anything on this on the internet. Regards,       Seamus

Show grand total running total in GridView Footer

In many scenarios we need to display Running total as well as Grand total in GridView footer. In this post i will try to explain in an easy way that how we can display running total & Grand total in a GridView footer combindly. To explain this solution using an example here i use a sales order report. The report contains all sales order amount in a tabular way. I will use a GridView to display sales order amount and use GridView footer to display Running total & Grand total. Let we have a customer table with id and name column plus an orders table with OrderID,CustomerID,OrderDate & Amount. Now our goal is to show all customers order with amount as well as page wise running total & grand total. Note that running total is necessary when you enable paging in a GridView where as Grand total is always you can consider.

gridview tablecell text emptystring in RowDataBound event when editing


HI and thanks in advance.  asp.net using vb, using a codebehind page.

I have a relatively simple gridview bound to an product table that displays great.  The problem comes when I choose to edit a row.  When I do so, the gridviews' RowDataBound event fires and the values of the text properties of the tablecells in the row evaluate to "" emptystring. 

I do notice that if I break within the GridView1_RowDataBound event during a refresh of the page, the values are there.  But again, when I hit the "Edit" button in the first column (the CommandField column) .  Text properties of the cells resolve to ""

 Here is the code for the event, followed by the gridview in the form (inside an updatepanel)

Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then  ' not a header, footer row.. etc.
            Dim cellProductNumber As TableCell = e.Row.Cells(3) ' ProductNumber column

'>>>>> after clicking "update", even though a value displays in the gridview,
' the cellProductNumber.Te

GridView does not show picture in row


OK, what is the problem here?

I do a gridview code that when displaying the information that come from the database is not showing any error at all, but is not displaying the right picture.

The problem,  I think, is that the (Eval("....") is not reading the values that are coming from the DataKeysNames. Due to this the right pictures are not displayed. But in another column, just for testing purposes I was able to display the values from DataKeysNames with the Eval. So I do not know what is going on and to make worse browser is not giving me any error.

So, this is the line that is not processing, reading or executing well:

ImageUrl='<%# IIF( (Eval("TUDTIWasItemUpgraded")) = "Yes",           string.Format("~/Images/ItemUpgradedTo.gif"),          string.Format("~/Images/ItemNoUpgradedYet.gif")    )       %>'     


And this is the complete code for the GridView

Cleanest way of setting max string length for text in GridView cells?

I want to make sure that each row in the table is the height of one line of text only.  I know you can set RowStyle-Wrap="false", but I also don't want any really wide rows.  I know I can go through each cell on RowDataBound or something and cut it to a particular length and then append an ellipsis on the end, but is there a neater way of doing the same thing?

Get Text Value in Gridview from Invisible Field

Hello,  I've run into this before, but I was using a formsview and just changed the field to hidden.  If you've seen my previous post I am trying to get the value of a cell out of a gridview to a variable and here is the code: Protected Sub GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles GridView1.SelectedIndexChanged Dim varClientID As String = GridView1.Rows(GridView1.SelectedIndex).Cells(6).Text.ToString() End Sub This works perfectly if column 6 is visible, but because it's an id number (which is not the primary key) I do not want it visible, but changing it to visible="false" causes this code to return null.  Changing it back to visible and it works.I'm not sure why the visiblity of a control changes the functionality of it.Are there any other ways to get this data out?
