Determine template in Listview's ItemDataBound

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 Hello, I am using the ItemDataBound event of a ListView to attach data for the different kind of templates I am using. Well, actually, want to use - I have not yet figured out how to know which template is coming in in the ItemDataBound event. I want to figure out if it is the edititemtemplate, insertitemplate, itemtemplate, etc. All these templates have different controls (edit and insert are the same though) and I need to set the controls contained in them.

listview 3.5 bind dropdownlists edit item template VB.NET


I am trying to do this with many issues of data binding doubling the amount and not setting selectedValue on dropdownlist. I have read some posts and they help but I am missing a crucial piece. My problem is that my dropdownlist is doubling the amount of records for the dropdownlist. Instead of "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE", I am getting "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE;YES;NO;YES;NO". My database is correct with the UPDATE part but the rebind after update is failing horribly.

Can't access a control in a listview layout template with codebehind

While running ItemDetabound upon load of a listivew, I am trying to access the text in a label of the LayoutTemplate of a different Listview.  It works fine if I try access the same labels under the same names if they are in the same listview, but not if they are in a different one.  It was working for a while, can't figure out what I changed, but now says that object doesn't exist.   Here is the html code for the labels: <LayoutTemplate> <table ID="Table2" runat="server" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr ID="Tr1" runat="server" style="padding-left: 0px"> <th ID="Th1" runat="server" style="text-align: left; white-space:nowrap; "> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server">Label 1</asp:Label> </th> <th ID="Th2" runat="server" style="white-space:nowrap; width: 150px" >

Bind GetAllUsers To ListView with ItemDataBound

Hello all, I am using a listview to which I want to bind the MembershipUserCollection which you get from GetAllUsers(). I don't want to use reflection, I want to assign it in the ItemDataBound event of my listview. I've done this before, but with datatables. The code will be something like DataRow dr = (e.item.DataItem as DataRowView).Row. You can then access specific columns with dr["ColumnNamehere"].ToString(). But how do you do this with MembershipUserCollection?

WPF: how to change the ListView cell template if the content is too long, it will display as Charact


We have used the GridView inside the ListView. We fix the column width (see the following link):


if the content is too long in one cell (since we fix the column width), we want it display as CharacterEllipsis at the end

just like the TextBlock we can define TextTrimming="CharacterEllipsis"

how can we achive it?


we have used the ListViewItemStyle as following, can we modify the <GridViewRowPresenter  /> section to achive it?

  <!--ItemContainerStyle with the Trigger for selection x:Key="ListViewItemStyle"-->
  <Style x:Key="ListViewItemStyle" TargetType="{x:Type ListViewItem}">
   <Setter Property="Background" Value="Transparent"/>
   <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black"/>
   <Setter Property="Margin" Value="5,0,5,0&q

ListView ItemDataBound Event



I want to access a dropdown control value of each list item as soon as it is created. I tried with ItemCreated and ItemDataBound events but I am getting null contro when I try to access control as shown below:

ListViewDataItem item = (ListViewDataItem)e.Item;

int LstIndex = item.DataItemIndex;

RadComboBox ddlCategory = (RadComboBox)(listView1.Items[LstIndex].FindControl("rdComboCategory"));

Also, I get listview.item.count zero. IS there any event where I will get listitem count and list items?

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

WPF Tutorial - Using The ListView, Part 1

Many of the controls in WPF have a downright dizzying array of capabilities and features, due in large part to the composibility of all the components. The ListView control is a great example of this - the possibilities are almost endless. This series of tutorials on the ListView will hopefully make the space of possible options seem not quite as daunting

How to listen to events within a listview



I've got a listview and I've put a button control in one of the columns, I'm trying to figure out how I have listen to the button click within a certain row, but can't see the button in the dropdown for the IDs I can generate events for.

I'd like to get the primary key of the row that's been clicked on and then run a sql statement against it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dropdown Event (Template Field)



I have grid view control that includes a dropdown control in a template field.

I wish to execute some code when the value is changed in the dropdown list.  Can't figure out how to capture this event though?

Any suggestions?

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

Image processing, determine white space and crop



I have created a image upload for our ID card system to allow users to upload new images, edit them and submit for approval.  This is all working well with a combination of asp.net (c#) and jquery to give a seemless editor etc.

We have had a few users who I cannot believe have scanned a photo of themself and then just submitted it with the A4 page of white and little photo.

I am wondering if anyone can help with a suggestion on how I could possibly reduce the load of these coming through (I can't believe they can be this stupid), it stipulates UK passport standards.

Would my only option be to check for a single continues colour that occurs and if it reaches a certain percentage point say 60% then to just send back an error stating they need to crop the image.

Can anyone help with providing sample or that I can use to move this one on.

I am still in disbelief on this one.  the other one is they take a photo of whole body and other in it and cut straight down middle chopping the people out but supplying a photo that no use for an id photo card....but that I can't imagine being solved programatically as I need to determine where their face dimensions are and what percentage of the actual photo is taken up by it and if it below a threshold reject it.

Empty template support for GridView


Just add the following to support the empty text in the GridView.


protected override void RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter writer)
	if (Extender.AdapterEnabled)
		GridView gridView = Control as GridView;
		if (gridView != null)
			if ((gridView.Rows.Count == 0) && !String.IsNullOrEmpty(gridView.EmptyDataText))
				writer.WriteAttribute("class", "AspNet-GridView-Empty");

Example of tag to be added to the css
.NiceGridView .AspNet-GridView div.AspNet-GridView-Empty
	border-width: 1px;
	border-style: solid;
	border-color: #
