Datagrid column Sorting generating error

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I have a datagrid column whose column values are databinded. I have used DataGridTemplateColumn and i need to use the sorting in this column.

<my:DataGridTemplateColumn SortMemberPath="FileName" Header="Name" IsReadOnly="True" MinWidth="150">

It works and sort the the data but when i edit the data after sorting, i need to re-generate the columns data.

FileListingGrid.ItemsSource = listFiles1;

But this generates "'Sorting' is not allowed during an AddNew or EditItem transaction. "

It works file when column data is not sorted but whenever i sort the data and have to re-generate the column data, it throws the following error.

DataGrid - how to make Column sorting dynamic, to cater for when bound data changes?

I'm using a DataGrid in a VS2010 WPF C# project.  I have bound the DataGrid to an ObservableCollection<SummaryItem>.  When you click on a column heading it sorts the data at that point in time.

Question - How would I arrange such that the sorting in the DataGrid is dynamic, so that when data changes (within the ObservableCollection<SummaryItem>) the sorting keeps working.

Notes: Binding approach is via DataGrid

      private ObservableCollection<SummaryItem> _summaryData = new ObservableCollection<SummaryItem>();
      SummaryDataGrid.ItemsSource = _summaryData;
      SummaryDataGrid.AutoGeneratingColumn += (s, e) =>
        //if (e.Column.Header.ToString() == "ProcessName")
        //  e.Column.Width = new DataGridLength(1, DataGridLengthUnitType.Star);
        e.Column.Width = new DataGridLength(1, DataGridLengthUnitType.Star);
  public class SummaryItem : INotifyPropertyChanged
    public event PropertyChangedEvent

Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Based on my previous control "Multiple Column DropDownList for ASP.NET", I received many emails asking for the same control to be used in the DataGrid for web applications. Here we go.. This control can be used as the regular MS DropDownList in the DataGrid and also as a regular dropdownlist. It has all the properties, like DataTextField, DataValueField, DataSource, SelectedIndex etc. The download file contains the samples both in VB.NET and C#. In this sample, I have used the Northwind database of SQL Server.

DataGrid: Tailor Your DataGrid Apps Using Table Style and Custom Column Style Objects


One of the most enduring challenges in writing user interfaces is figuring out how to display large amounts of data efficiently and intuitively without bewildering the user. The problem becomes particularly thorny when the interface must reflect hierarchical relationships within the data that the user needs to modify. The Windows Forms DataGrid control gives developers a powerful and flexible tool to meet this challenge. This article explains its basic operations and shows how to extend the DataGrid to display columns of data in an application-appropriate manner.

BDC Column validation error in DIP



I have created a content type which has a BDC column along with other columns.

This content type is used in a document library. When the user adds a new document of this content type the system is asking for the extra data required for this content type and I am using AJAX to store data in the BDC Column fields.

The adding process goes fine and I am able to check in the document

Now if I check out the document and open it to edit it, a message is shown on the top of the document saying ' Required Properties - To save to the server, correct the invalid or missing required properties' along with 'Edit Properties' button.

When I click on 'Edit Properties' DIP is opening up and the invalid column is not highlighted. After some trial and error I found out that the problem is with the BDC column. When the cut the data from BDC column and paste it again and click on 'Check Item' the error disappears and allows me to check in the document.


Did anyone face any problem like this before. If so please help me out

Also I am new to BDC so please bear with me if I am missing something obvious.



Trying to set Calendar Time Interval Using Calculated Column, but getting Error



So i was trying to use a calculated column that added 7 days to the start date of a calendar item. The calculated column worked fine because i checked with several tests. Then i tried using the Column as the End Time in the Time Interval Setting in the Calendar View. This broke Sharepoint. Not the normal graceful error im using to seeing from Sharepoint but the Server Error Page when a dump happens in a ASP page. I havent enabled the full error page because i assume its not like i can fix it, i dont have the source code.


Does anyone else experience this? If so is it a known problem and being worked on?




Modified column missing when sorting


I resently updated few document libraries on my sharepoint site.  What I did I removed "Content approval" from those libraries and now my modified and created columns are missing from the columns of the list (appear to be hidden ).  So, I need to be able to sort by these columns and I have seen many people asking about this same question but I haven't found any answer to this issue.  The columns are still there but I they dont show up in the columns of the library.  I can still create a view with this columns but i cant sort by them.

Is this a bug or is there a reason why sharepoint does this? 


Bizarre Error. "Message: [Column Name]"


I'm getting a really strange error in my application when under heavy load.  The page(s) pull information from our SQL database and when this error occurs, I don't get a real error message.  Instead, the error information looks like the following:

StackTrace: at System.Data.ProviderBase.FieldNameLookup.GetOrdinal(String fieldName)

at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive()
at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

So what does this mean?  More importantly, how can I fix it?  If no one knows the answer, does anyone have any ideas for what I can do to better search for thi

WPF Datagrid Combobox column

Hi, I am creating a WPF Datagrid with the combobox column in it. All the datagrid binding and combobox column binding works fine without any problem. But, when I select a value in the combobox column and move to the next column or row, the value is reset to the previous empty selection. Am I missing anything here? Please find the code snippet that I have used below. <dg:DataGridComboBoxColumn x:Name="technicianname" Header="Assigned To" ItemsSource="{Binding}"/> technicianname.ItemsSource = dtTechnicianInfo.DefaultView; technicianname.DisplayMemberPath = "TechnicianName"; technicianname.SelectedValuePath = "TechnicianEid"; Thanks in Advance!!! Best Regards, Subalakshmi Vijayarajan.

How to scroll the DataGrid (horizontally) when user drags a column header far left or right?

We're working with the WPF DataGrid and I have a question about  dragging column headers: The grid lets the user rearrange the columns, by dragging the column header left or right.  So far, so good. But, sometimes we have many columns, and only the first few columns are visible; so there is a horizontal scrollbar.  In such case, if the user drags a column header to the right edge of the DataGrid window, I want the DataGrid to scroll, automatically, one column at a time.  Is there an easy way to do that? (To be clear: yes, the user can already scroll horizontally by interacting with the horizontal scrollbar, but that isn't what I'm asking about.  I'm asking if the "drag a column header left or right" gesture can cause the DataGrid to scroll left or right.) I guess I could handle various low-level events, but it seems like it shouldn't be necessary -- DataGrid has so much functionality built-in, that I'm guessing it already has the ability to scroll when the user drags the column header to the edge.  So, is there either (a) a property that I can set, to tell the DataGrid to scroll when the user drags a column header to the edge of the window;  or (b) a code example showing how to achieve this effect myself?  Thanks!

XML Column containing single quote causes replication error

We have SQL Server 2005 transactional replication set up, and some of our tables have XML datatype columns.  We have run into an issue with the following error in the publication: Incorrect syntax near 's'. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 102) Get help: http://help/102 Looking at the distribution database, I was able to extract the offending command, and it turns out that the XML column has a single quote (') embedded in it, and the command that was generated for inserting the row into the subscriber table has bad syntax because of the single quote (i.e., it is not escaped).  One interesting note is that the single quote happens to also show up in a non-XML column, and the command segment for that column was generated correctly (it was escaped). Is there a workaround / solution for this?

Sorting a DVWP by Column Total

I have a survey list in Sharepoint 2007, which from what I understand means I can't add a calculated column. In this survey list I have some number columns that need to be calculated for display. They are: (1) Number of Weeks, (2) Number of Hours per Week, and (3) Number of Hours for Credit. In Sharepoint Designer, I've created a Data View Web Part which displays those columns and two additional "calculated columns." Scare quotes because the calculation is happening in the XSL of the web part, not an actual calculated column. These columns are (4) Number of Hours (Column1*Column2) and (5) Eligible Hours (Column1*Column2-Column3). I have the data view grouped by @Author (Created By) and a column total row for each group. I even figured out how to get column totals for all four columns though the nodeset is grouped by Author, which breaks out of the box. Great, beautiful. The final step is sorting the entire view by the column total of Column5. In other words, I want my groups of @Authors listed in descending order by their Total Eligible Hours. Is this possible?

WPF Datagrid with multiple row selection/checkbox column template

Hello, I am using the WPF Toolkit Datagrid with a checkbox defined in a template column/template cell. We are using the checkbox template so that selecting the checkbox will also highlight the row in the datagrid. Here is the template definition: <dg:DataGridTemplateColumn MinWidth="50" Width="Auto" Header="" CanUserReorder="False"> <dg:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate> <DataTemplate> <CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding Path=IsCheckedm, Mode=TwoWay}" /> </DataTemplate> </dg:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate> </dg:DataGridTemplateColumn> We are allowing multiple row selection in the datagrid and using MVVM (using MVVM Light). We would like to keep a list in the View Model of selected rows as they are selected/unselected. Any suggestions on how we can leverage MVVM to keep the list of selected/unselected elements current.
