How to populating GridView with data from XML file?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi, I am quite a new to the ASP.NET field and trying to populate a gridview with data from xml file. I have already done this using code bihind(C#) when the xml file is simple, like below: Dennys 730 W. Carson St. Torrance CA 90502 5625555555 4 The best burger joint in California! And code bihind: protected void GridView1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) { DataSet ds = new DataSet(); ds.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("RestaurantData.xml")); GridView1.DataSource = ds; GridView1.DataBind(); } But say if I have multiple child of a node in the XML file, say, Dennys 730 W. Carson St. Torrance CA 5625555555 www.tcs.com Then how to load this data(phone & website) in a gridview column using code behind(C#)? And what else I have to do with my aspx page also? Please help!

Load XML data (string format - not file) into a gridview




 I need some help help loading some XML tagged data I received as a reply from a Web Service (String format), into individual fields on the web form.


After spending some time,  I was able to load an XML file into a gridview using this code...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

Editing the Data in a GridView

In addition to deleting a GridView's underlying data, another common need is to allow end users to edit the data displayed in a GridView. With ASP.NET 1.x's DataGrid control, editing the data is certainly possible, but requires creating three event handlers and writing a dozen or so lines of code. With the GridView and ASP.NET 2.0, it is possible to create an editable GridView without writing a single line of code! All of the necessary functionality is encapsulated within the GridView.

The GridView allows editing on a row-by-row basis. An editable GridView contains an additional column with an Edit button in each row. When the end user clicks on an Edit button that row becomes editable, causing the Edit button to change to Update and Cancel buttons and the other columns to become TextBoxes. The end user can then update one or more column values and click Update to save their changes.

Easily manipulate data with the GridView control in ASP.NET 2.0

Last week, I introduced ASP.NET 2.0's GridView data control and covered the basics of using it. This week, I go a step further by going into the details of working with the data contained in the control. This includes viewing, editing, and deleting data. Thankfully, the GridView control makes it easy to utilize these features. Before diving into these topics, I begin with an examination of the different field types supported by the GridView control.

Display Related Data in an ASP.NET GridView

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!
