Is there a way to have the same named control in two places on one web page?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a project where I'm rebuilding a legacy app and need to combine multiple similar web pages onto one ASP.Net web form.  I thought I could easily do this with MultiView / View groupings.  The problem I'm encountering is that each View control doesn't isolate controls of the same name.For example, I wanted to do this:<asp:View ID="view1" runat="server">   <asp:Label ID="TEXT01" runat="server" /></asp:View><asp:View ID="view2" runat="server">    <asp:Label ID="TEXT01" runat="server" /> </asp:View>   The reason for keeping the "TEXT01" name consistent is that tens of thousands of records in the legacy DB have this exact string, so to avoid a translation algorithm it would be nice to keep the historical names.  Note: The example I gave is one of about 20 such names.Anyhow, if there's no way to do what I'm trying to achieve in ASP.Net then so be it, but I thought I'd ask others for advice,Robert

Knowing the event occured in user control in current page




      My web application has user control which uses third party controls called Devexpress controls. The user control is a menu  and is part of the Master page. It is placed there because this needs to be available in all the pages. My user controls raises a even on item clicked. Now, My question is that Is there any way to know that the event has occurred in page_load of the current page in which I am in?

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Control Values When Returning to Page


Why do controls value not persist when returning to a page (e.g. via browser back button)?  If I set control values without utilizing a post back the controls will maintain their last value when I return to the page.  If I set a control value and then call a post back, the control value is reset to the default value when returning.

I have many pages with a gridview, and a textbox which is used to filter the gridview contents.  I set the filter textbox, filter the gridview (postback), go to another page, and when I return to the gridview page (via back button), my filter textbox is reset empty, and the gridview is the original (unfiltered) data.

What concept am I missing here?

Thanks in advance...

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

How to Access Parent Page (.aspx) control (IDs) from its child User Control (.ascx)

Full Control users only able to edit Shared Version of page in MOSS 2007

Hi, In MOSS 2007 we have a site collection that does not allow the owners to edit pages. There is no broken inheritance in the permissions, and when a user clicks "Site Actions" and then "Edit" they get a toolbar saying they are only editing the Shared Version of the page. No pages are checked out to any other users either and the users attempting this (including the Farm account) are not able to edit these pages. What would be the next steps to debugging this problem as it is not one I have encountered previously?  

Accessing User Control that is in a Master Page

I have looked everywhere for how to do this and all I come up with is threads describing how to expose public properties.  I have a USER CONTROL in my  Master page. It is a search box with a text box and a dropdown for search type (last name, account number, etc) and a search button.  When the user clicks the search button, I open a new page that displays the results.  How do I pass the values from the USER CONTROL search fields to the new page?  I would post code, but I have nothing to post yet since I don't know where to start. I have tried exposing the public property of the user control, but I don't know how to retrieve those values on the results page.  Anyone have any sample code on how this is done? Thank you in advance for your help!
