Custom Strong type HTML Helper for checkboxes?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

Hi!

MVC contains a strong typed HTML Helper (HTML.CehckBoxFor()) this takes a bool and returns a bool. To make the URL smaller I am thinking to change the bool values on the model object to byte or somthing like that so the url only contains &Parameter=1.

I have found this snippet :

public static string DatePickerFor<TModel, TProperty>(this HtmlHelper<TModel> htmlHelper,Expression<Func<TModel, TProperty>> expression)
  where TModel : class
{
    var inputName = ExpressionHelper.GetExpressionText(expression);
    return htmlHelper.DatePicker(inputName);
}


But I have no clue how to turn this in to a strong typed HTML Helper for checkbox that takes byte instead of bool. Its also important that the model object is set with byte instead of bool.

Any sugestions?

BestRegards

2 simple ways to create Custom Html Helper in ASP.NET MVC

  
ASP.NET MVC facilitates us to create our Custom Html Helper in following simple ways:

1. Creating Extension Method on Html Helper Class
2. Creating Static Methods

Using Dynamic Property inside Html Helper with Razor fires an error

  

Hello,

I have the following with Razor:

@Html.GoogleAjax(View.GoogleAjaxKey, new String[,] { { "jquery", "1.4.2" } })

And the I get a strange error:

  'System.Web.Mvc.HtmlHelper<object>' has no applicable method named 'GoogleAjax' but appears to have an extension method by that name. Extension methods cannot be dynamically dispatched. Consider casting the dynamic arguments or calling the extension method without the extension method syntax.

What is strange is that it works fine using:

@Html.GoogleAjax("123", new String[,] { { "jquery", "1.4.2" } })

I tried the following code line:


@View.GoogleAjaxKey

And the key is displayed just fine so the problem is how I use the value of @View.GoogleAjaxKey into Html.GoogleAjax.


Do I need to change something on my Html Helper? Here it is:


    public static MvcHtmlString GoogleAjax(this HtmlHelper helper, String key, String[,] libraries) {

Html.RenderPartial appears to be stripping Model of custom attributes

  

Hello,

I have implemented a custom ModelMetadataProvider so that I can decorate my view models with some custom attributes and everything was working fine until I made use of a Partial View.

The following code in my view works fine: -

<%: Html.DisplayFor(x => x.Results) %>

Results is a List which renders a custom display template and is also decorated with a custom attribute.  Using breakpoints, after the above line and prior to the code within the custom display template, the overridden CreateMetadata method in my custom ModelMetadataProvider is invoked.  If I look at the attributes collection parameter I can see that it does contain my custom attribute thus everything working as expected.

However, if I replace the above with the following line of code in my view then it breaks: -

<% Html.RenderPartial("ApplicationSearchResults", Model.Results, new ViewDataDictionary()); %>

All the Partial View contains is: -

<%: Html.DisplayFor(x => x) %>

Again using breakpoints, after the above line and prior to the code within the custom display template, the overridden CreateMetadata method in my custom ModelMetadataProvider is invoked.  But this time if I look at the attributes collection parameter my custom attribute is not there.

Any idea

corrupt html from custom control on win2003/iis6 box

  

Hello everyone -- first time poster and relative newcomer to the boards.  This bug I'm tackling has me at my wits' end and it's come time to turn to the masses!  If this is posted in the wrong forum and/or has already been addressed, I apologize.  However, I've done thorough searches and haven't come across anything akin to what I'm facing.

I'm working with a website that has a set of custom controls, all descending from a base class.  These controls take DataSets returned from web services and renders custom html via overriding the Render method.  Everything works fine on my local box and my coworker's box (both xp machines running iis 5).  However, on our server (windows server 2003, 64-bit, iis 6), the html rendered by the browser appears corrupt, with garbage replacing individual characters, as follows:

Creating a custom drop down field type with SelectedIndexChanged Event

  
Hi All, I am trying to create a custom drop down field type and I was able to acheive that using the MS link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb861799.aspx. As per the link, once the custom field is created we can override the "Validate" method to write the Validation logic and that works fine for me too. However I am facing a challenge even before going to Validate . Let me explain my actual requirements here. I need to build a custom drop down field and expose the field to the user in "Edit Properties " Page of a document library. Along with this field, I will be having some OOB site columns in the Edit Properties Page (Ex: Title, Subject etc)  . When user selects a value in the drop down, I need to hide/show few OOB site columns based on certain criteria.  I am facing a challenge of how to capture the "SelectedIndexChanged " event for the Custom drop down field in Sharepoint (Can we wire the SelectedIndexChanged event to a custom dropdown field type) ? Is this acheivable in SP 2010 Custom field type ? If so, how can I do it ? Can any of you kindly help me here?   Regards, Yesh

But when I try to validate HouseType and say I have Persons not null and pets is null. I get errors of validation for pets. How do I get around this? -Thanks

Custom Entity Framework template and access to the database type

  
First and foremost ... I already made a few changes in the template, the most important one changing the methods generated for stored procedures with OUTPUT parameters and no resultset so that instead of instantiating a few OutputParameter objects, passing them to the method and extracting the values (all without any type checking) you just call the method with a few "out someType?" parameters so I do not need the very basics. I am totally confused by all those GlobalItem, EdmProperty, BuiltInTypeKind, TypeUsage and all this made of objects, all alike and all different though so as soon as I need more data than what's already used by the template I run into problems :-(What I would like is to change the WritePrimitiveTypeProperty() so that it outputs [StringLength(xxx)]  for all char, varchar, nchar and nvarchar properties. But I can't find a way to get from an EdmProperty in the model to the database type in the store.Can anyone help me?In case anyone is interested here's the modified stored procedure mapping code for the template. The first code replaces the original in the .tt: //////// //////// Write EntityContainer and ObjectContext Function Import methods. //////// region.Begin(GetResourceString("Template_RegionFunctionImports")); foreach (EdmFunction edmFunction in container.FunctionIm

Custom Field - SP is creating HyperLinks and using HTML entities

  
Hello. I'm seeking help with a problem related to a custom field in SharePoint 2010. Our Custom Field builds upon (extends) the SPFieldMultiLineText field. Data saved to our Custom Field is being processed by SharePoint before it is sent to the client. For example < and > is replaced by HTML entities (&lt; and &gt;). Text such as http://bing.com and mail@bing.com is automatically being converted to hyper links (<a href="mailto:mail@bing.com">mail@bing.com</a>). Is it in any way possible to have SharePoint deliver the data as it was stored in the custom field? We don't want it to replace HTML with HTML entites, nor should it create hyperlinks automatically. I have attached our XSL file below. <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:x="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/dsp" version="1.0" exclude-result-prefixes="xsl msxsl ddwrt" xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime" xmlns:asp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ASPNET/20" xmlns:__designer="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/designer" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" xmlns:SharePoint="Micros

Custom field type - set value doesn't work when field is hidden

  
Hi, I have a simple custom field type which gets a value from the Property Bag and sets that value to a label. This works fine as long as the field is set to Optional (the field is a site column and is part of a site content type), but if I set it to Hidden, the value doesn't get set. public override void UpdateFieldValueInItem()         {             this.EnsureChildControls();               if (this.ControlMode == SPControlMode.New)             {                 this.Value = GetChosenConsole();             }         }   Does anyone know why this is and what I need to do in order for it to work even though it's hidden? Thanks!

I already cleaned up my profile (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx) I use MOSS 2007 version 12.0.0.6421 and SP designer 2007 SP2 on Win7. Below you can see an example of the custom content type.     Columns Name Type Status Source Title Single line of text Required Item Segment Lookup Optional   Form Lookup Optional   Main Product Lookup Optional   Weight Number Optional   Price/Kg Currency Optional   Unit Price Currency Optional   Manufacturer Lookup Optional   Packaging Lookup Optional   PL Yes/No Optional   Label Lookup Optional   USP Lookup Optional   POSC Lookup Required   Place Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader Country Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader SC_Link Single line of text Hidden StoreCheckHeader
