Expander width within a listview

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hello. I have a listview with expanders inside that reads rss feeds. My code is below. In one of the textblock within the expander has alot of text causing the width to go way out. How do i set a permanent width on the listboxitem or prevent a scroll bar to appear in my main grid? i need the text inside the textblock to wrap. Code Block <Style x:Key="RSSFeedItem" TargetType="{x:Type ListBoxItem}">            <Setter Property="Template">                <Setter.Value>                    <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type ListBoxItem}">                        <Expander IsExpanded ="False"  Header="{Binding XPath=title}" Style="{StaticResource CustomExpander}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Top">                            <StackPanel>                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding XPath=link}" FontSize="10"/>                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding XPath=pubDate}" FontSize="10"/>                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding XPath=description}" TextWrapping="Wrap"/>                            </StackPanel>                        </Expander>                    </ControlTemplate>                </Setter

How can I set the width property the LayoutTemplate in a listview through codebehind

Taking the following simplified layout for a listview, how do I get and set the width property of the columns. Using Codebehind, how do I set the width of Th2 to Th1. <LayoutTemplate> <table ID="itemPlaceholderContainer" runat="server"> <tr ID="Tr1" runat="server"> <th ID="Th1" runat="server"> </th> <th ID="Th2" runat="server">                         </th> <th ID="Th3" runat="server">                         </th> </tr> </table> </LayoutTemplate>    

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.

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.

Programmatically Simulating the ListView's ItemCommand Event


I have a User Control that contains a ListView.  In the user control's code is this event handler:

    protected void listView1_ItemCommand(object source, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
      Button_ClickHandler(source, e);

What's occurring is that I'm explicitly firing an event so that the parent web page can monitor this and take appropriate actions.  Thus when the user clicks on a different ListViewItem it triggers the population of associated data elsewhere on the web page.

This all works fine except for one thing: When I first load the control I'm pre-setting the first ListViewItem.  Unfortunately, just setting the ListView's SelectedIndex = 0 doesn't fire the aforementioned event handler.

So I started investigating how to call "listView1_ItemCommand" but couldn't figure out how to instantiate the "e" parameter.

Any ideas of how to resolve this?


Dropdownlist in ListView


I have a transaction table with a field called product. There is a limited number of choices for product so I also have a product table. I am showing the transactions in a ListView with a dropdownlist for Product. The field Product can be blank (all works well then). The user can leave the field blank or they can choose from the dropdownlist. I am running into a problem with the dropdownlist in the Edit Template. No matter what the product is in the transaction file, I get a page error of "ddlEditProduct has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items". I have verified the product does exist in the product table.

My markup is:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlEditProduct" runat="server"
SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Product") %>' >
<asp:ListItem Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>

Manually coding controls such as gridview, listview, repeater, etc.


using vs2010 and .net 4

In my project I have a separate DAL built from class files that I'd like to use to store my code for CRUD operations against my database.

I'm having a hard time finding examples of how to code server controls like the gridview, listview, repeater etc., for CRUD operations manually, i.e., without a datasource control of some flavor.

I don't have any problem manually coding the referenced controls to get my data, but I do have problems when it comes to coding them to perform CRUD operations unless I use a datasource control. When I use the datasource controls CRUD operations seem to automagically appear out of nowhere after they're configured.

Can someone point me to some samples somewhere? Have I missed a section at MSDN?

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.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If IsPostBack Then
            If Session("ACTIVETAB").ToString() = Session("SUBCONTRACTSATABNO").ToString() Then
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    Public Function loadlookups(ByVal id As String, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemEventArgs) As DataTable
        Select Case id
            Case "ddlCertReceived"
                dt = GetLookupTable("SubcontractsA", "Sub 1 Cert Received")
                Dim ddlCertReceived As DropDownList = _
                CType(e.Item.FindControl("ddlCertReceived"), DropDownList)
                ddlCertReceived.DataSource = dt
                ddlCertReceived.DataTextField = "lup_text"

Dynamic gallery using ListView and AJAX


I want to create a gallery where on top there will be a normal view of a selected image and below a horizontal listview in order to select an image. Both in separate ajax update panels.

When i debug i get the following error "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index" and highlights the "ImageButton imgbtn =(ImageButton)ListView1.Items[ListView1.SelectedIndex].FindControl("ImageButton2");" of my code behind file

Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance!

Display a nested child ListView on PostBack while using DataPager on parent ListView


Hello ASP.NET community,

I am having trouble finding how to solve the following issue :

I am using nested listviews to display Sales and Sales details.

The main ListView displays General Information about Sales and the child ListView displays the detailed information about one sale. the child listview is shown only when the user clicks on a link (see included code, DataBind is made on PageLoad) :

ASPX Markup Code :

<asp:listview id="lvSales" runat="server" onitemdatabound="lvSales_ItemDataBound">
<table cellspacing="0" border="1" width="250" style="border-collapse:collapse;">

Listview - Drag and Drop?


Hey everyone, I have a treeview and a listview on my ASP.NET application. However, with treeview I can drag and drop it to where ever I want it on my page. I tried this with listview, but it wouldn't let me. Listview automatically positions itself along the left side of my application. What I'm wanting to do is put my treeview along the right side and then put my treeview along the left side of the application. Any ideas on why I can't do this or suggestions on how I might be able to do this?

By the way, I'm running Visual Studio 2010 and using .NET FRAMEWORK 4.

ListView calls ObjectDataSource SelectMethod when setting InsertItemPosition


I have a ListView that is bound to an ObjectDataSource. I want to create a new insert item when the user clicks on a button on the form. I do this by reacting to the button click event on the postback. In the button click event, I set ListView.InsertItemPosition = InsertItemPosition.FirstItem.


        protected void NewButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // This line causes the ListView's ObjectDataSource to call its SelectMethod
            // Removing this line, the SelectMethod is NOT called.
            itemsListView.InsertItemPosition = InsertItemPosition.FirstItem;


This works, but for some reason the ObjectDataSource's SelectMethod is executed again.

Is there a reason why the SelectMethod of the ObjectDataSource is being called when the ListView's InsertItemPosition is set from None to FirstItem?
