Cascading DropDownList with LINQ

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
My application includes a gridview control with and Edit mode which allows users to do selections using cascading dropdownlist. My code is based on tutorial by Brian Orrell (link below). I am able to statically populate the dropdownlist but in my case I need to populate it dynamically based on a previous selection of a dropdownlist, I would like to do it programatically so I can manipulate data. I Could not find any code samples which show how to do it progamatically if anybody knows of a site with such example please post a link   http://borrell.parivedasolutions.com/2008/01/objectdatasource-linq-paging-sorting.html

It only will work is when i choose another album and then go back to PLease Select then it only can work.. anyone have experience on this problem for cascding dropdownlist? plz give some idea on it. Thanx in advance <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlPhotoAlbum" runat="server" Width="200px" AutoPostBack="true" /> <ajax:CascadingDropDown ID="ccdPhotoAlbum" runat="server" TargetControlID="ddlPhotoAlbum" Category="PhotoAlbumGUID" PromptText="Please select" LoadingText="[Loading...]" ServicePath="~/App_Ws/LookUpWS.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetPhotoAlbum" ContextKey='' UseContextKey="true" />    

ASP.Net Dynamic Data - DropDownList Field Template with AJAX Cascading DropDown Extension

Hi all,   Have spent hours trying to create a Dynamic Data Field Template holding a DropDownList which is extended by the AJAX Cascading DropDown extension. Final form holds multiple cascading dropdown boxes. User selects Country (Land) then Postcodes, Counties (Provincie) are populated. Once postcode is selected then towns (Plaats) are populated.  The problem I am now facing is that the viewstate for the dropdown lists is not being saved/restored after an insert action or custom validation error. So basically the dropdown lists are being reset to their default values. Some code (if missing parts, just ask and I will post them) - Don't mind the code structures etc... needs some refactoring :) Attribute I created:using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; namespace Data { [AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Property | AttributeTargets.Field, AllowMultiple = false)] sealed public class CascadingDropDownParametersAttribute : Attribute { //public string TargetControlID; // The ID of the DropDownList to populate. public string Category; // The name of the category this DropDownList represents. public string PromptText; // Optional text to display before the user has selected a value from the DropDownList. public string

Help: populate Html.DropDownList from table data? [Linq to SQL model]


I have two tables, Users and Roles.  The roles table is a reference table for the different roles of my site (RoleId and RoleName columns). The Users table contains profile data for each user, including a RoleId column that is FK'd back to the Roles table [RoleId].

Both tables are in a Linq to SQL model.

I have an edit page created which lists all the profile values of a user.  The edit page inherits the User model.  One of the editable values is the RoleId field.  I want to set this up to be a drop-down list that contains items labeled using the RoleName column of the Roles table, and matched with values of RoleId.

How can I achieve this?

Playing with Linq grouping: GroupByMany?

One of its features is grouping. Many people understand grouping like it is defined in Sql. Linq is implementing grouping quite the same way. Let's discover this syntax and how to make consecutive groups easier.

Linq: how to share parameters between lambda expressions ?

When using Linq to objects, you will quickly feel the need to pass some parameters from a method to another but it's not so easy because each Linq method is not calling the following one. In a Linq sequence, each method is using the result computed by the previous one. So, local contexts are not visible from one method to another.
The compiler is using two technical different ways to let parameters go out of a method.

Linq to Sql CompiledQuery container

Ok now let's go. Here is just a little trick but with some interesting patterns that could be useful in some other contexts not connected to Linq to Sql.

When using Linq expressions, like with Linq to Sql, translating the expression into something else (sql for example) is taking time and resources. Sometimes it's negligible, sometimes not...

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

What is Lambda Expressions In LINQ

A lambda expression is an anonymous function that can contain expressions and statements, and can be used to create delegates or expression tree types.

All lambda expressions use the lambda operator =>, which is read as "goes to". The left side of the lambda operator specifies the input parameters (if any) and the right side holds the expression or statement block. The lambda expression x => x * x is read "x goes to x times x." This expression can be assigned to a delegate type as follows:
