DataList Within LoginView

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I've a datalist within the logged in template. On the page_load first I'm ensuring the visitor is logged inIf User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then Following that I'm just trying to populate the datalist... Dim myDataAdapter As SqlDataAdapter Dim strToday As String = DateTime.Today.ToString("dd MMM yyyy") conConnect = New SqlConnection(connstring) myDataAdapter= New SqlDataAdapter("SELECT command goes here FROM my table", conConnect) Dim ds As Data.DataSet = New Data.DataSet myDataAdapter.Fill(ds) Dim DataList1 As DataList = LoginView1.FindControl("DataList1") DataList1.DataSource = ds DataList1.DataBind() conConnect.Close()   However this doesn't work, I get the following error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.... Highlighting: DataList1.DataSource = ds If I take the loginview away then it works, but I thought the loginview1.findcontrol part would solve any problems. I would appreciate any help.

Datalist with embedded Grid or List...Sub Totals issue with iteration


Let me see if one of you can assist with this one...


i have a similar situation, but mine does not use the selected item (item Command). Here is what the form is to do:


1. this is for an educational environment, so we use SID- NOT SSN's, but i use the SID as a filter in the subset as the grouping unique id.

2. I'm trying to inject a sub total row at the last line item of each SID (if more than one item in the report for that SID).

3. I'm looping thru the items in the Datalist Item Command with a for each (item i in Datalist2.Items).

accessing values from a database with datalist?


I have a datalist and I am filling it using a dataadapter, dataset. So in my .ascx page, I have

<asp:datalist runat="server" id="dlProducts" repeatcolumns="2" repeatdirection="horizontal">


<table border="0">

<tr><td><%# Eval("Item_Name") %></td></tr>

<tr><td>I have to add a picture here</td><td><%# Eval("First_Name") %></td></tr>




In the area where I have put a statement like "I have to add a picture here", I have write a big case statement.  Like:

Case: 6 // show a picture from file1

case: 7 // show a picture from file2

Case 8: //show a picture from file3


So How do I do this here?  Because I dont know how to access the datalist values from code behind.


Here is my code behind:

SQLString = "SELECT First_Name, Picture, item_name, item_id from table1 where item_id = " + request.querystring["iid"];

dataadapter daItems = new dataadapter(SQLString, "connection_name");

dataset dsItems = new dataset();

var checkboxSelect = 0;

var sProducts = "";


var multiCheck = window.document.forms["frmCompare"].CompareCheck.length;


if (multiCheck != null)

    for (counter = 0; counter < window.document.forms["frmCompare"].CompareCheck.length; counter++)


        if (window.document.forms["frmCompare"].CompareCheck[counter].checked)


            var seperator = (checkboxSelect > 0)?",":"";

Thanks in advance for any help! Mike
