Tooltip for GridView Column Headers (ASP.Net)

Posted By: Amit Mehra     Posted Date: January 05, 2010    Points: 2   Category :ASP.Net
I just wanted to add auto tooltips for my GridView headers. There are couple of ways but I don't want to use javascript and wanted to use simple 'title' attribute. It took couple of hours to get the working code supporting sortable columns. I thought it will be very useful for others. Here's the code and logic behind it.

Multiple column headers in Gridview

Hi,  I've been trying for the past few hours to add mutliple headers to my grid view but keep failing to get it to show.  There's plenty of examples online that I found but can't seem to get the most simplest to work.  Below is the code I've been using with no success.  I even tried changing the "TableCell" to "TableHeaderCell" but still yields no headers as expected.  Anyone know what I could be doing wrong? protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) { if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Header) { GridViewRow headerow = new GridViewRow(0, 0, DataControlRowType.Header, DataControlRowState.Insert); TableCell headercell = new TableCell(); headercell.ColumnSpan = 3; headercell.Text = "My Custom Header"; headerow.Cells.Add(headercell); GridView1.Controls[0].Controls.AddAt(0, headerow); } }

Displaying Row Details Tooltip on GridView using JQuery

Continuing exploring JQuery! I decided to implement a feature to display some kind of details related to a row displayed on GridView. For example when displaying employees details on GridView some information might not fit in the GridView because it will make it huge and wide. These infomration can be diplayed as Tooltip. Or when you want to display a picture and some kind of formated text to be diplayed as tooltip when mouse hover on the image.

Scrollable GridView with fixed headers in asp.net C# vb.net

In this example i am going to show how to create scrollable GridView with fixed headers which don''t get scrolled with records and stay on the top in asp.net using css, I''ve tested this code on IE7 and Firefox 2.0 , 3.5.

For this we need to add css to headers of gridview to keep them on the top.

First of all place a Panel on the aspx page from thetoolbox. Set height to 200px and width to 200px
and scrollbars to Vertical.
Now add a gridview inside this Panel and set the datasource to populate gridview.

Use a column as parameter for a sds in another column; gridview


Hola, I have a gridview which is bound to a sds which returns 7 columns and I added two columns from the GUI.  What I want is to fill up the 9th column with DDLs and these  DDLS will get their data from a different sds which is using a stored procedure with a single parameter.  I created the 9th row, used template field, made the sds for 9th row, the stored_procedure, threw a DDL in Item template and all  I need now is to pass a parameter in the first column to the sds in the 9th column.  I can code this but i'm getting tired of aspx.cs :) and would like to do it from the GUI.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!
