Keeping Custom properties in GridView Added on OnRowDataBound Event While Sorting

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
All of my columns are bound in the Gridview. On OnRowDataBound event, I am adding some custom styles like underlines and colors to the text of the columns. Sorting of data is working fine but I am losing my custom styles when I sort. I am using the generic sorting code for the GridView. How I can keep my custom styles on sorting that I added during OnRowDataBound event.   Thanks for your help.

gridview tablecell text emptystring in RowDataBound event when editing


HI and thanks in advance.  asp.net using vb, using a codebehind page.

I have a relatively simple gridview bound to an product table that displays great.  The problem comes when I choose to edit a row.  When I do so, the gridviews' RowDataBound event fires and the values of the text properties of the tablecells in the row evaluate to "" emptystring. 

I do notice that if I break within the GridView1_RowDataBound event during a refresh of the page, the values are there.  But again, when I hit the "Edit" button in the first column (the CommandField column) .  Text properties of the cells resolve to ""

 Here is the code for the event, followed by the gridview in the form (inside an updatepanel)

Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then  ' not a header, footer row.. etc.
            Dim cellProductNumber As TableCell = e.Row.Cells(3) ' ProductNumber column

'>>>>> after clicking "update", even though a value displays in the gridview,
' the cellProductNumber.Te

Gridview Sorting and Page Orientation


Hi there,

I have looked at several posts on Gridview sorting but can't seem to get it to work in my code. I am using Subsonic objects as the DataSource. Every time I click on a page or sorting link it does a postback but the page orientation is left at the top, not where the gridview is on the page. Is there a way around this?

This is the code I have written for it:

        protected void PublicNoticeGridview_Sorting(Object sender, GridViewSortEventArgs e)
            MidvaleSiteDBDB db = new MidvaleSiteDBDB();
            SqlQuery pubNoticeQuery = db.Select.From<publicnotice>();
