ListView Not Recognizing ItemType Correctly

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Here I go again.  I thought I finally had this cracked but now I want iterate through the records in my listview and do different things depending on whether the record is displaying existing data or is a blank, new record.  Easy, right?  Here's my code:

For Each i As ListViewItem In lstProtocol.Items
                If i.ItemType = ListViewItemType.DataItem Then
                    If TryCast(i.FindControl("hdnProtocolLesionID"), HiddenField).Value <> hdnLesionID.Value Then
                        i.Visible = False
                    End If
                ElseIf i.ItemType = ListViewItemType.InsertItem Then
                    MsgBox("This is an Insert Item")
                    TryCast(i.FindControl("hdnProtocolLesionID"), HiddenField).Value = hdnLesionID.Value
                End If

The problem is that the listview doesn't seem to recognize the insertitem as such.  Obviously I don't really want that message box in there but it was just to test whether the insertitem was being picked up.  The message box is never displayed.

I also tried a simple iteration through the listview items with a message box popping up on each item displaying the item type.  It said 'DataItem' every time, never 'InsertItem', even though

Microsoft ListView Control 6.0 cannot correctly display multibyte characters when running on a 64 bi

With all the regional settings set to Russian and the OS being Russion the ListView Control 6.0 does not display the column headers correctly on the Windows Server 2008 64 bit OS. If we switch to using Microsoft ListView Control, version 5 the columns (text strings) are displayed correctly. I am concerned that using an earlier version is going to cause problems. Is there a better solution other than using version 5? Thanks!

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.

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, 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"

Accessing Label Control In a listview using Javascript



I have a Button and Label nested inside a ListView.

When a User clicks the button i want the Label to display a specific value eg"Pass". Of course being a Listview the Label value will be relevant to the row the button was clicked on.

I want all this to happen on client side, but i am struggling to access the Label via my Javascript??

Any suggestions and examples Would be much appreciated..

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!
