ListBox tricky to set in a DataGrid/GridView

Listboxes are very tricky to set selected items in grid - there is no real nice way to do it. It would have been great if Microsoft included a property that accepts an array or comma separated values - or anything! But they only allow each item in the list to be selected individually. The way to do this in a grid is a bit messy, but it is fairly simple to implement. When a row is created (as per the event), select the items of the listbox as per the datagrid source data:

Persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control


Hi All,

I am trying to persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control. Here are the details

I have a user control which contains a a listBox and button. On Page_Load of user control I am populating the ListBox control with some values.

Office: Relive the Moment by Searching Your IM Logs with Custom Research Services


Often, IM conversations contain important information you'd like to keep and reuse. Fortunately, MSN Messenger 6.2 has a feature to keep a conversation history permanently in XML format. This article shows you how to leverage that conversation history by consolidating IM exchanges so they are indexed, searchable, and ultimately reusable using the Microsoft Office 2003 Research and Reference task pane.

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

setting scroll position for a ListBox


I have a ListBox control showing 10 rows.  I have 30 rows total in the listbox.  How do I programmatically adjust the scroll to show the last ten rows?

Some sources have suggested that I set the SelectedItem.  But I am already making selections (myListBox.Items[28].Selected = true, myListBox.Items[29].Selected = true, etc); the listbox scroll is positioned on Item[0] not the first selected item.  I have also tried setting myListBox.SelectedItem in addition to the multiple selection just mentioned but that does not have any affect either.


Filter a listbox with textbox


So i currently filter the listbox with some javascript i have found.
What it does is going to the item i type on the textbox.
It will not filter the listbox so it will contain the specific matches.
I was reading for autocomplete but i don't seem to find this 2 way usage.
I was also reading this article:
But i'm completely lost on how i can implement it.
Any ideas?

How to reference a listbox from a procedure


I have a listbox that gets loaded from a couple of different places on my web form.

I would like to put the code to load the listbox in one place, rather than have two copies of it.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to reference the listbox control successfully from within a procedure.

Would anyone know how to do this?

My code looks like this:

private static bool LoadSubscriptionListBox(System.Web.UI.Page Page)
        bool bReturn = false;

        // Clear the listbox

        // Load the listbox



jQuery modified ListBox not posting back modified values


Hi everyone,

I have an ASP.Net ListBox that I'm trying to populate via jQuery, using the following snippet:

        $("#MyList_btnAddAll").click(function(e) {
        $('#MyList_lstAll option').appendTo('#MyList_lstSelected');

The code has two ListBoxes in fact, one a "source" and the other a "destination".  As you can tell above the ListBoxes are MyList_lstAll and MyList_lstSelected.  These are rendered in the browser as <select> elements, as you'd expect.

The jQuery is working great, the items are moving from one ListBox to the other, the DOM is updated but when I submit this form (not using jQuery), the ListBoxes don't reflect this change on postback. 

I realize my modifications via jQuery aren't available in ViewState but I thought since the DOM was updated these changes would be part of the postback data?  But in the codebehind after postback the ListBox contents haven't changed.  Does anyone know what might be going on and what I can do about it?  Many thanks.

How to create a dynamically populated items in a listbox and use it as a navigation?

Hello, I am trying to create navigation inside a listbox menu. I load data from xml to populate a list. Each item in the list box should be a link or button. Then, I create a frame to load xaml pages in it. I tested to load pages employing button control, outside listbox with on click event and it worked well. However, I cannot make it work with list box items. I am hoping to get help from you. Any sample or ideas are highly appreciated. Below is the code:  XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Pages> <page id="page01"> <name>Page 01</name> </page> <page id="page02"> <name>Page 02</name> </page> </Pages> C# to initiate a click o n listbox item and get the path to page: private void SelectionChanged(object sender, System.Windows.Controls.SelectionChangedEventArgs e) { ListBoxItem lbi = ((sender as ListBox).SelectedItem as ListBoxItem); string itemName = lbi.Content.ToString(); if ( Nav_ListBox.SelectedItem.Equals("Page01" ) ) { ContentFrame.Source = new Uri("Pages/Page01.xaml", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute); } } XAML:  <ListBox x:Name="Nav_ListBox" Margin="0" ScrollViewer.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden" Background="#FFF2F2F2" ItemTemplate="{DynamicReso

Data binding a listbox

I'm using VS 2010 and writing a WPF application.  I have a listbox on a form that I want bound to an access database field.  In the code behind I create the usual oledb connection, command and adapter and run a query.  In debug I can see the dataset has 143 items from the database, a single column called "path".  Here's the relevant code:  oleCon.Open(); adpt.SelectCommand = oleComd; adpt.Fill(dtst,"MyTable"); MusicList.DataContext = dtst; MusicList is the listbox.  There's 143 items in the dataset.  When the form loads the listbox is empty.  Here's the xaml for the listbox: <ListBox Grid.Row="1" Height="477" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="7,6,0,0" Name="MusicList" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="310" Grid.RowSpan="2" Background="#002400" ItemsSource="{Binding Path=path, Mode=OneTime}" DataContext="{Binding}"> <ListBox.ItemTemplate> <DataTemplate> <StackPanel> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=path}" /> </StackPanel> </DataTemplate> </ListBox.ItemTemplate> </ListBox> At least I know the data is present but why isn't it binding to the listbox? Thanks!

SQL User Permission (No answer found by searching)

Hello all!   I'm hoping someone will be able to answer my simple question!   Previously, I've run the below script to give one user access to their db in SQL management studio but nothing else. use [someDB] -- use the real db name go sp_changedbowner 'theUser' -- use the new username go 4. Next, deny the new user "public" access to ALL databases: use master go deny VIEW any DATABASE to theUser go   However I now need to add an additional user with view on permissions to the database and can't figure out how to do it. I'm sure it's simple but my SQL knowledge is at a low level.   Many thanks, Lee.
