DataList doesn't load some of the times - hit or miss

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
This is the problem.  My datalist, which connects to an Objectdatasource (I implemented custom paging) becomes populated with data only half of the time.  When I go to the aspx page which contains that datalist (from another page), sometimes, the datalist fully loads, but sometimes only the header shows up.  The header just contains hard-coded text whereas the body (itemtemplate portion) contains things that are binded to the objectdatasource.  I thought I would mention this since the problem might have something to do with how things in asp.net bind.The strange part of this is that when I was testing and debugging within VWD 2010, the datalist loaded fully everytime and I had no issues.  When I placed my files on the IIS web server, this is when the problems started happening.What could the problem be?  The speed of the IIS web server vs VWD's "internal server"?  My page_load, init_load, etc methods are empty for this aspx page.  The datalist is solely handled by the objectdatasource_selecting method.  Should I explicit call something from one of those early lifecycle methods to ensure proper datalist loading?Thanks in advance.

Datalist doesn't appear to be working

I am trying to get a datalist to work, so I can use it as a menu. This is a learning experience for me, and would like to figure it out. I sort of used the TimeTracker as an example. Anyway, I build the ArrayList as the DataList datasource, but it doesn't work. So I put in a DataGrid, and copied the setting and binding of the datasource, and it works. I'll copy the page_load code to show how I'm doing this. I'm not including the TabItem class, but it appears to be working, cause it works for the DataGrid. Can anyone explain what is going wrong. When I try to used the DataList, I get the following error in the browser:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

And the following line is highlighted red:
Line 58: tabs.DataSource = menuItems;


public abstract class Banner : System.Web.UI.UserControl
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataList tabs;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataList MenuList;
//protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid DataGrid1;

General Application Performance - Speeding up Load Times...



I'm not sure if this is possible, or if perhaps I'm not thinking .Net enough for the idea, but I'm coming from a perspective of process creation and assembly loading, that appears to be much slower than I would desire. 

When creating a Win32 API application (non-.Net) in say Delphi or C++, and using Win32 DLLs I can statically or dynamically link the dlls and either way it doesn't really have much apparent issue on the loading of the application. 

I Currently have several library Assemblies which are "Engines" as they were that are used by other "control" assemblies that are used by the application.  So IN all effect there are 10 total assemblies to this application.  Now, when debugging, I've noticed the assemblies being loaded in sequence down at the bottom status bar of VS.  and sometimes given the nature of a rather full desktop of applications I don't always see the Splash screen.  However when I just run the application, not through VS for debugging, but i've installed it on another computer and just run the short cut to the exe, and even on average modern systems it can sometimes take 15 or 20 seconds (maybe more) before the splash screen even displays.  On slower systems this can even be extended to a full minute.  I'm wondering if my design of having t

Can someone tell me why this doesn't run upon page load?

Hello everyone. 
I have the following code, and I was able to run it. But it only work when I clicked on the button to call upon the "Page_Load" function. 
But what I would like to have is that it load up the gridview with all the data within in upon page start, and that I don't have to click 
on anything. I removed and test without the postback and that have no affect either. Thank you in advance.

Beginner: this doesn't make sense to me


Do you need and "empty" script tag in the head to run scripts that are in the body?  Also, can you run JQuery scripts if they're in the <head> tag?  The first sample only works if the JQuery script is in the form (and body) tag, not in the head - even if I add $(document).ready(function() { });

This works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<a href="">Here is a link</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('a').click(function () {
alert("you clicked me!");


This doesn't work.  Notice I removed the second <script> tag from the head
