DetailsView error "must be in edit mode to update a record" when I have set edit mode in code behind

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi,I have a DetailsView within an UpdatePanel.  I programmatically put the DetailsView into edit mode, change the fields then call the UpdateItem method which causes the "must be in edit mode to update a record" exception.  Am I missing something blindingly obvious? <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" DefaultMode="ReadOnly" AutoGenerateEditButton="true" OnItemCommand="dvItemCommand"> <fields> <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="false"> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Panel ID="dlSpecificDetailsViewPanel" runat="server" CssClass="i_am_a_shout"> <h2><asp:LinkButton ID="lblShoutTitle" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Shout_Title") %>' On

Custom tool error: Failed to generate code for the service reference 'CompanyService'. Please che


A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

Using tabs from the AjaxControlToolkit causes error: ...control contains code blocks (i.e. <% ... %>


I'm getting the error:

The Controls collection cannot be modified because the control contains code blocks (i.e. <% ... %>).

When attempting to add the tabs from the AjaxControlToolkit.  A little background..Theres an existing aspx page in a microsite which used the accordion control and the tabbed control ...I need to modify this page to use a different masterpage. 

The original site was .Net Framework 2.0 and the page in question used AjaxControlToolkit 1.0. which I manually installed originally.  Some of the site has been further developed using the .Net Framework 3.5.  (Come with AjaxControlToolkit) Now I have come to update this aspx page and I get the error above.

I have narrowed the down to the TabContainer (I think)  Does anyone have any experience with this sort of problem?  Also what version of the AjaxControlToolkit should be with the .Net Framework 3.5? I have 1.0.20229.20821. 

I also tried to browse to the AjaxControlToolkit.dll to add the tools to the tool box as they're missing... thinking this may be an indicator as to why it wasn't working. I get the error: 'There was an error loading types from assembly C:\inetpub\wwwroot\project\Bin\AjaxControlToolkit.dll Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Extensions. Version=

Showing Designer error for Silverlight App when trying to access resource which contains code e.Resu

Environment is: Silverlight 4, VS Studio 2010. Designer is showing error in a Silverlight App when trying to access a resource as below. And there are no build or runtime errors.
