Can't render FormView with EntityDatasource in Design Mode

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi Guys! I'm not sure if I'm placing this in the right spot but since it has to do with Entity Framework I put it here.  Here's the deal.  I have a FormView bound to an EntityDataSource.  The FormView is a part of a user control.  In design view on the user control, the formview and the entity datasource show up as expected.  However once I put the user control in an aspx page, the formview won't show up.  The entity datasource shows, but the formview doesn't.  Instead I get this message in design view: "There was an error rendering the control.  Value cannot be null.  Parameter name: owner"  I don't have any parameters in my datasource or formview called owner.  Is it talking about the database owner. By way of comparison, I put a SqlDatasource on the page and tied it to a formview.  It showed in design view on both the user control and the aspx page.  So that led me to believe it has something to do with the formview being bound to the entity datasource.  I am using Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation. Thanks!

WPF+ VS2010: Design mode error "The URI prefix is not recognized"?

our application uses VS2008 and WPF. To apply the styles in the design mode, we have used the "BlendMergedDictionary" class (see the following link) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/995101/how-do-i-get-wysiwyg-design-in-blend-vs-without-merged-resourcedictionary-in-ever It works very well in VS2008 IDE. Now we plan to move our application to VS2010. In VS2010 Design mode (click on ~.xaml design), we get error message:  "The URI prefix is not recognized."    at System.Net.WebRequest.Create(Uri requestUri, Boolean userUriBase)    at System.Net.WebRequest.Create(Uri requestUri)    at MS.Internal.WpfWebRequestHelper.CreateRequest(Uri uri)    at System.Windows.ResourceDictionary.set_Source(Uri value) the styles does not apply at the design time. It works fine in runtime. The following are the code: public class BlendMergedDictionary : ResourceDictionary { /// <summary> /// This class the purpose is allow we reference the "themes" and "styles" in resource dictionaries in separated assemblies /// by using StaticResource. The big problem using StaticResource is that it will complaints at design time can not find the resources /// So we use this class in xaml file, if it is design time, it will load the resource dictionaries in. /// If it is not in design time, it will use the reso

VS 2008 Design Mode Hangs on Windows 2008 Server

 I have looked at all the posts I can find on this problem and tried everything I can think of, but still the problem persists. I am getting really sick of it. It was working fine for the last year until an update to MS Office 2007 caused a lot of problems (automatic update). After checking posts here, I removed it completely. No change. I then tried all the things I could find on other posts, also no change. Today, I removed VS and the Web Authoring Component and re-installed. Still no go. Does anyone have a fix for this problem. It seems that it has been around a long time, but is still giving problems. I even saw one suggestion to reformat the drive! You've got to be joking! Help please, I'm getting desparate.  

Want to show FormView in Edit mode with specific table columns depending on their Genre??

hi, I have  a table in my database called "Profiles". This holds data on Female and Male personal characteristics. On my aspx, I have a formview in edit mode which is binded to an object data source with a GetDataByUserId Select method which retrieves data from the "Profiles" Table via a DAL. The "Profiles" table has some columns which relates to females only and some just males and some are generic to both. See example below     UserId - / of Type GUID GenreId /  of Type BOOL. Hip Size (For females) Dress Size ( For Females) ChestSize (For Men ) TrouserSize (For Men) Weight ( For both )   When the User logs in , they go to an update Page which has the Formview in Edit Item Mode and contains drop down Lists which are binded to the Users Selected Value. The DDL are in turn bound to their related table such as HIP, Dress, Chest, Trouser etc. Objective If a female user logs in I just want to show them the (Hip Size) DDL  and DressSizeDDL in the Edit item template of the formview and not the ChestSize DDL or  TrouserSize DDL. At present the GetProfileByUserId returns all colums from the table My question is how do I do this and just show DDL which are relevant to the Female or Male Only. In some cases the user may not have selected an item in the previous form so they could also be

HTML 5 and VS2010 Design Mode


I have intellisense etc working with html 5, but is there something I am missing with getting Design Mode to correctly format HTML5 (header, nav etc).  My page has the display : block css in it and also the (for IE8) crerateElement scripts.

My user controls stopped working in Design mode! Why?


I have a few user controls that I have been using for months but now whenever I open a page in Blend that uses one of the controls I get an invalid xaml error. The project still compiles and runs and behaves just like it's supposed to but I can't edit xaml in Design view because of this error.


In the page I have

<local:ACAVariableWidth x:Name="CIDCloseButton" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,0,17.54,15" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Width="174" Height="89" MouseLeftButtonDown="callerID_close" Text="Close"/>

The error is: The member "Text" is not recognized or is not accessible

In the user control xaml I have:

		<StackPanel x:Name="TopSP" Orientation="Horizontal" VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Height="76" d:IsLocked="True">
			<TextBlock x:Name="ACATB" Margin="8,8,8.5,9.5" FontFamily="APHont" FontSize="32" Padding="5,0" Foreground="White" TextAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Text="{Binding ElementName=UserControl, Path=Text}" d:IsLocked="True">

Switch FormView to Edit Mode from Repeater ItemCommand


The following code successfully displays a record in a FormView and sets the FormView mode to 'Edit' when the user clicks on a LinkButton within a Repeater, however the record is not Updated. If I don't change the .SelectCommand and call .DataBind, I'm able to update the first record that is displayed. Naturally that's a moot point because the idea is to be able to update the record that the user selects in the Repeater. Because of the design of the FormView and Repeater, the record *must* be updated via the FormView. Updating the record via the Repeater is not an option.

    Protected Sub RepeaterMessages_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs)

        Select e.CommandName
            Case "Edit"
                SqlDataSourceMessageDetail.SelectCommand = "SELECT [Id], [MessageDateTime], [MessageOwner], [Subject], [Body], [AllowReplies], [ExpirationDateTime], [IsCityWideMessage], [DepartmentId], [BranchId], [CompanyFacilityId], [ShowNumber], [IsHighPriority], [UpdateDateTime] FROM [Messages] WHERE ID = " & e.CommandArgument

Visual Studio 2010 - Design Mode Error - "Error Creating Control"



I am using Visual Studio 2010.  I was debugging a web application and an exception happened and VS 2010 froze.  I ended the VS 2010 in the task manager and when I went back to developing, I found on every form for every ASP.net control I get:


Error Creating Control -

Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.


Also I am unable to edit  the form or add anything from the toolbox.


Any help on this matter will be appreciated.

textbox in readonly mode does not bind in formview



I was surfing the web about a bug that has asp.net about unability to bind a textbox which was set to readonly and does not bring any value when inserting data.  Some sites claim that readonly should be set in code behind in page load but it haven't work for me.

            TextBox txtCuota = (TextBox)fvPrecios.Row.FindControl("txtNewCuota");
            txtCuota.Attributes.Add("readonly", "readonly");


I was thinking in using a label instead for binding data but it didn't work either.  Is there an easy way to do this? 
Maybe a hidden field?
