Dynamically creating Gridview Template - Linkbutton Click not working



I have written some code to dynamically generate template columns for gridview which works well. However, each cell in the gridview has to be a linkbutton, which when clicked does a db update and redirects to a specific url with some parameters in it.

I have attached a click event handler to the linkbutton in the InstantiateIn method but the event does not seem to fire.

Could someone please help? the code is below -

jquery datepicker not popping up in Gridview Edit Template textbox


I have a gridview that I can't for the life of me get the datepicker calender to pop up for.  I've been using the datepicker for months very successfully for a variety of textboxes on the page and inside of formviews but this is the first time I've tried using with gridview.  I didn't expect any issues however can't seem to find anything to work.  I have searched the forums for 2 days and attempted any suggestions found within the solutions to no avail.  I've tried using the CSS to link the datepicker but everything stopped working when I changed the code and my page which uses a css style already got all distorted looking.  Please help!

Here is my gridview (only included a part b/c it is large and am only having problem with the datepicker for the date completed text box)

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewCompleted" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
        AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="#CCCCCC" BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="Solid"
        BorderWidth="3px" CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="job_id" DataSourceID="SourceJobProjectCompleted"

Referencing Parent FormView from Embedded FormView

Looking for some direction here.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.   I have a scenario where I have a FormView positioned inside another FormView.  Each FormView is connected to a strongly typed ObjectDataSource (DataObjectName).  The parent FormView is a single record in Read Only mode.  The child FormView is defaulted to Insert Mode.  Can someone tell me how to get the Key Field (and even some of the other fields) from the parent FormView to use during Insert in the Child FormView?  I've tried using a combination of the different events (i.e. OnDataBind, OnInserting, etc.) on the child FormView.  This seems like it should be real simple but I'm just not getting it.   My structure looks as follows:<asp:objectdatasource id="vendor" dataobjecttypename="Vendor"... /> <asp:objectdatasource id="inquiry"... dataobjecttypename="Inquiry" ... /> <asp:FormView datasourceid="vendor" ...> ... <asp:FormView datasourceid="inquiry" ...></asp:FormView> ... </asp:FormView>   Tony

How to export gridview to excel template

I have a gridview that I need to export to Excel. Excel is not installed on the server, but I would like to put a template on the server so that when the user exports the data it will use the template and open the file on the user's local machine. To make things slightly more complex, I need to export the data to Sheet2 because Sheet1 needs to be a graph (thus the need for the template). I cannot use any third party software and I have no ability to modify anything on the server. This is used in a corporate environment on a shared server that I don't have any control over. Any sample code would be very helpful. I'm running ASP.NET 3.5 with Visual Studio 2008.

DropDownList inside FormView Insert Template

Hi, I am trying to change the textboxes in the FormView insert template to dropdownlists but they keep setting the parameters to null.   Here's what I have:  <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlYearOfQualification" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("YearOfQualification") %>' runat="server"> </asp:DropDownList> In Page_Load CType(frmSurvey.FindControl("ddlYearOfQualification"), DropDownList).Items.Add(New ListItem("2010", "2010"))CType(frmSurvey.FindControl("ddlYearOfQualification"), DropDownList).Items.Add(New ListItem("2009", "2009"))   and in the SqlDataSource InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [tblSurvey] (... [YearOfQualification] ...) VALUES ( ... @YearOfQualification ... ) And in insert parameters: <asp:Parameter Name="YearOfQualification" Type="Int16" /> And the insert fails with YearOfQualification as null. If I sue the standard textbox: <asp:TextBox ID="YearOfQualificationTextBox" runat="server"                 Text='<%# Bind("YearOfQualification") %>' /> It works.   Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.
