label not styling

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


Can anyone shed some light on why this label is not styling correctly:

This is .net lable

<asp:Label ID="Category" runat="server" Text="Category"  CssClass="label"></asp:Label>

and this is the html label


Both are wrapped in this div:

.contact_us {

width: 410px;
padding:0px 0px 0px 20px;


This is the CSS class:

.contact_us label {
padding:0px 0px 5px 0px;

Now on the html file the label looks perfect but on my .net label above it's not being applied.

jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

How to display a count of search results with keywords in a label?


Sorry for a basic post here; I am very new to VB!

I am currently building a search page, which includes a textbox and two drop-down lists, a search button, and a datagrid. If results are found and displayed, I would like a label to display:

(e.g.) "24 results found for 'blue sky clouds' "

...where the integer represents the results count, and the keywords and/or drop-down list selections are included in the string.

If no results are found I would like the label to display:

(e.g.) "No results were found that match your selection. Please try again"

I would also like the label to be invisible until a search occurs.

Thanks in advance!

Cannot access Label inside Repeater - "Object reference not set..."


I have a button on a page with a Repeater and an ObjectDataSource. To give credit where credit is due, the Repeater's paging functionality is courtesy of ScottGu. (However, I'm using ASP.NET 4.0 and SQL Server 2008, as opposed to ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005.)

Anyway, in the button's click event, I need to access the Text property of a Label that's inside the Repeater because it's used as an input parameter in a stored procedure. I'm getting a NullReferenceException when trying to access the Label's Text property. I have researched this error and have tried a few different solutions (involving FindControl and the Repeater's ItemDataBound event), but I haven't been able to get it to work. Any suggestions, in VB or C#, would be greatly appreciated. The code is below.


<asp:Repeater ID="rptText" runat="server" DataSourceID="tbsDataSource">
<table width="100%" cellspacing="1">
<%-- some rows removed for brevity --%>

orders = new Orders();

DataSet CustomersDs = orders.GetCustomerById(CustomerID);

lblCustomerName.Text = "sadasdad"; // CustomersDs.Tables[0].Rows[0]["first_name"].ToString();




Please suggest me solution to this.

Updating a label twice during a postback


I am updating a label as part of an imagelabel click using an update panel as this process can take some time. What I would like to do is update the label at the start of the processing so that when the user clicks it says 'procsessing...' and when it finishes processing it says 'done'

I thought I would be able to do this by calling the following:

btnClockIn.Attributes.Add("onClick", "return clearstatus();")

and then using the foolowing script on my webpage:

function clearstatus() {
    form1.lblStatus.value = "";
    document.getElementById("lblStatus").innerHTML = "change in text or whatever";
    return true;

But this doesn't seem to do anything (I have tried setting .value as well)

Is there some way that I can update a label more than once during postback?
