Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

limit data on charts



Is there a way we can dynamically limit the data in a chart?

I have a table and chart to be displayed in a report. The table is to display all the rows. But the chart should be plotted for 1 group alone. Is this possible?

e.g., the dataset will have data for all states. But the chart should be displayed only for 1 state. Can this be achieved?

have a calculated value display multi line data??




Due to a bug found in using multi line text boxes that auto expand (after every 20th characters a line return is added) i have switch the control to be a calculated column. The value of the field is being looked up from a sharepoint list when the form is loaded (so need need to edit).

The issue i have is that the data i am loading has line breaks and the calculated control ignores them. Is this meant to happen or is there a way i can get the control to render multi line. The height of my control is already set to be automatic.


Thanks in advance

Visual Studio Performance is terrible when editing data templates


I am building a WPF application that has multiple resource dictionaries and data templates.  I have my settings set to always open xaml in the source only view, and I have looked to see if I could find any other settings that would help my performance.

In visual studio 2010 the performance gets so bad I literally cannot work.  If I type one letter, the letter shows up and then visual studio thinks for several minutes before letting me type another letter and repeating the cycle.  It does seem that rebooting my computer helps, but it gets bad quickly enough that rebooting too often isn't exactly a good solution.

Does anyone have any information that can make visual studio usable for working with my xaml?

Change data type of library field from Single Line Text to currency


I have an InfoPath 2010 form that has a field listing the amount of currency on a meter. It is a Decimal form in Infopath but publishes to SharePoint as a Single Line of Text.  It will not let me modify the column in SharePoint and it will not let me select the allow edit from the Publishing Wizard.  I need the column as a currency so my Excel Queries work.



Reuse or combine data templates


In a TabControl it can be helpful to setup a control template. Unfortunately this makes all tabs use this template. It is easy enough to override the template completely on any specific tab BUT one cannot partially reuse the control template tab. Is there anyway to do this?

Basically I have several tabs with very similar layout and controls. I'd like to use this in a template then add the difference in the TabItem. I'd like to use the same controls that are common across all tabs(so any changes on one tab item will effect the other tab items(of course it would be nice to have the option to have them distinct too).


Anyways, I have a feeling that wpf can't do this from what I've read but I don't see any reason why we can't "extent" a data template or even just "overlay" two of them so they look to the user like one. Hopefully I'm wrong?
