controls disappear in UpdatePanel

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello,         I have an update panel and inside the update panel I have a button. When I click that button I want to show textbox which is hidden (i.e. style="display:none"). I want to do it from client side. I wrote a javascript to show the textbox. But the textbox disappears after it is shown.   my button  code looks like this: <asp:ImageButton id="b1" OnClientClick="showTextBox();">.   showTextBox() code is called and it displays the textbox, but the click event goes to the server and comes back and when it comes back it doesnt know about the newly added textbox i guess. Is there an easy way to show the textbox from the client side without going to the server inside UpdatePanel.   Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks, Bharani

Validation Controls Inside UpdatePanel

Hi All,If you use validation control, the base validator will render script WebForm_OnSubmit() to the page and add form onsubmit "onsubmit="javascript:return WebForm_OnSubmit();". This script is used to fire client side validation event.Now I have a listview inside updatepanel, when click edit button to fire the listview edit mode, the above validation script is just not rendered. How shall I work around with that? I need to customize the client validation event here.Thanks.

Masterpage + UpdatePanel + Formview + EditItemTemplate = Null controls

I have a content page with a DropDownList in an UpdatePanel, a GridView in another UpdatePanel and a FormView in a 3rd UpdatePanel.  The databind's for the 3 controls happen in the code behind.  The FormView is populated when a row is clicked in the grid.  The Mode of the FormView is contolled by a series of buttons in that UpdatePanel, displayed as appropriate depending on the data in the grid row.  When the FormView is in Insert and the bound textboxes of that template are edited and (partial) posted back, I can retrieve the controls and their values with casts such as: if (Emp_Form.CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Insert) { CheckBox active = (CheckBox)Emp_Form.FindControl("cbActive"); ... But when the FormView is in Edit there aren't and controls during the (partial) post back.  A reference to them such as: if (Emp_Form.CurrentMode == FormViewMode.Edit) { TextBox usrNmTB = (TextBox)Emp_Form.FindControl("UserNmTbx"); sUsr = usrNmTB.Text.ToString(); ... results in a Null object reference exception.  When a button's onclick runat server event fires how should I capture the FormView's controls collection?  Why does it work for the Insert mode and not the Edit mode? Thanks in adva

Issue accessing textbox controls nested within a DetailsView within an UpdatePanel

I have a couple of textboxes nested with a detailsview, within an updatepanel.  When I try and access them from the code behind, it returns a null value as if they don't exist.  Can't figure out why that would be.ASPX code is: <asp:UpdatePanel ID="upSpecificShout" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional" ChildrenAsTriggers="true" > <ContentTemplate> <asp:DetailsView ID="dvSingleShout" DataSourceID="sdsSingleShout" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="false" OnDataBound="SetDVIcons" HeaderStyle-CssClass="noDisplay" > <EmptyDataTemplate> <p class="Watermark"> The panel on the left shows a list of everything you've shouted. (Your replies to other shouts are highlighted in blue/green.) </p> <p class="Watermark"> This right hand panel will show specific shouts with a list of replies etc.. Just do a little click on a shout title to display more detail here. </p> <p class="Watermark">

Controls Disappear in Custom Control Design View

I have a site using eight (so far) custom web user controls  and two of them have started misbehaving in design view.  When designing the control itself some (in one control) or all (in the other) regular controls (labels, text boxes, etc.) disappear from the design view surface.  They can still be seen in the source view and if the control is hosted on a regular .aspx page the control displays properly.  The code window recognizes all controls in the objects dropdown list and I can write appropriate code.  The controls run properly on their hosted pages.  If I switch to Split view and select controls in the source view panel a very small area od the design surface becomes selected (like one pixel for any of us who remember programming old DOS applications with 80-column screens) but no controls can be seen. In short, the controls work in every respect except that I cannot see all or part of the design surface in Design view when editing the controls directly.  I've double-tripple checked the source code for anything that may be causing this and just don't see anything.  (The controls aren't that complicated.)

1st PostBack only: SelectedIndexChanged events fire AND GridView & ReadOnly controls disappear

On initial load of the page, everything is visible & runs correct. On the first PostBack fired by any one of my DDLs, RadioBtns, LinkBtns that have the AutoPostBack=true property, then ddlPriority_SelectedIndexChanged & ddlPendUserReqType_SelectedIndexChanged events always fire (and only from these DDLs, the others don't fire inappropriately), even when neither of those controls had been selected. Then my GridView gridPendRoles disappears, unless a DataSource & DataBind() is forced. Any ReadOnly controls (lblTicketID, txbxInsertTicketDate, lblPendUserID) will also loose their data/text in the first PostBack. However, every PostBack following will not inappropriately fire events. And as long as a DataSource was set & DataBind() called a 2nd time at any time during any PostBack, the GridView will stay visible with correct data displayed. Again, as long as the ReadOnly controls have their data/text set a 2nd time during any PostBack, they too will retain their data/text for every following PostBack. I've tried debugging with Trace on & walked thru everything very thoroughly, but still cannot catch any reasons why this would occur. And since I am using the Delete & Edit command linkBtns in my GridView, I can't just force a DataSource & DataBind() on every PostBack, or I would loose those Row

Find All Controls in UpdatePanel

I've used a Ajax UpdatePanel in one of the web forms and just want to clear all TextBoxes content which are in UpdatePanel.I've made sub below, however it dosen't work properly.Please help. Public Sub ClearPanel(ByVal ctrl As UpdatePanel) For Each c As Control In ctrl.Controls If TypeOf c Is UpdatePanel Then ClearPanel(c) If TypeOf c Is TextBox Then CType(c, TextBox).Text = "" If TypeOf c Is DropDownList Then CType(c, DropDownList).SelectedIndex = 0 Next End Sub

UpdatePanel, GridView and Timer controls used together - OnTick() and DataBind



I am currently working on a page that contains a GridView control which is bound to an ObjectDataSource control.  The ObjectDataSource invokes a method on a DAO layer class that returns a DataTable and all is working just fine.  Paging and Sorting are enabled and work ok as well.  I have "wrapped" the GridView control inside an <UpdatePanel><ContentTemplate> construct and now the Paging and Sorting occur w/o the Page reload as expected - still no problem. 

However, now I want to have the GridView simply refresh itself every 5 to 10 seconds so I placed a Timer control w/ an interval of 5000 milliseconds INSIDE the UpdatePanel.  I am sure there is more that must be wired and have had trouble finding a good article where the UpdatePanel, TimerControl, and GridView control are used together.  Examples that I have seen use Label controls and implement the OnTick event but it is not clear yet to me how to use this w/ a databound control like a GridView.  Can anyone suggest a link or 2 showing an example of this scenario. 

NOTE:  I am not currently programmatically "binding" the GridView control.  The GridView control and ObjectDataSource control are simply bound by setting the DataSourceID property of the GridView to the ID of the ObjectDataSource - they are bou

All TextBox controls in ASP.NET UpdatePanel won't accept any input after post-back


 My code behind is VB.NET. I use ASP.NET UpdatePanel like the following. However, after the post-back, all textbox in UpdatePanel won't accept any input, except when I move the mouse over and click on the TextBox.

  • Here's why I use UpdatePanel:

    During the post-back, after inserting data into DB, set all TextBox text property to String.Empty

    After the form is submitted, the Panel pStudent should be refresh , not the entire page

    and the TextBox txtId is set in focus again.

It's very strange that this happened to me today. I used UpdatePanel before many time I never had such problem.

Can anyone show me why  all TextBox controls in UpdatePanel won't accept any input after the post-back even though the textbox is focused , only when you move mouse click in them? 

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="upPOS" runat="server">
            <asp:Panel ID="pStudent" runat="server" CssClass="InContentInfoLight" 
        DefaultButton="btnSubmit" GroupingText="Cafeteria - POS">
                <br />
                <div class ="divleftcolumn-six">
                    ID Number :
                    <asp:TextBox ID

Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model

Custom Controls in C# .NET

Embedding user controls in a Windows form is just like adding a simple button or text box that are already provided with .NET. These basic controls were written essentially like you code your own controls. Typically the controls you design are to be used in multiple forms or to modularize your code. These reasons help reduce the amount of code you have to type as well as make it easier for you to change your implementation. There should almost never be any reason to duplicate code because it leaves a lot of room for bugs. So, implementing functionality specific to your control in the control's source code is a good idea. This reduces code duplication as well as modularize your code, which is a good programming guideline.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!
