Bind .NET ListVIew to Sharpoint list with Eval

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

I have a rather basic question of something that I just can't get to work. I have a user control with a ListView control. In the code-behind for the user control I bind the control to a SharePoint list.

Now, I want to render the items in a certain way in the LayoutTemplate and ItemTemplate sections of the ListView. I try to do this by binding to the columns with Eval, but this binding never returns any data work... 


This is some of the ascx:


<asp:ListView ID="ListView1" runat="server">
  <asp:PlaceHolder ID<

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.

Bind GetAllUsers To ListView with ItemDataBound

Hello all, I am using a listview to which I want to bind the MembershipUserCollection which you get from GetAllUsers(). I don't want to use reflection, I want to assign it in the ItemDataBound event of my listview. I've done this before, but with datatables. The code will be something like DataRow dr = (e.item.DataItem as DataRowView).Row. You can then access specific columns with dr["ColumnNamehere"].ToString(). But how do you do this with MembershipUserCollection?

Strategies for removing empty list items from a listview upon render?


using asp.net 4 and vs 2010

I have a listview that displays data from a database. I have to configure it to display all column data where present, however, not all columns have data, with the result that blank spaces get rendered where this data would normally be displayed.

The code:

<asp:ListView ID="lvNationalCouncillor" runat="server" DataKeyNames="PersonId">
          <h2>National Council Contacts</h2>          
            <asp:PlaceHolder runat="server" ID="itemPlaceholder"></asp:PlaceHolder>            
          <div class="ContactWrapper">
          <div class="ContactText">
          <h3><%# Eval("Title") %></h3>
          <br />
          <li><asp:HyperLink ID="BioLink" runat="server"
           Target="_blank" Text='<% #Eval("Name")%>'
           NavigateUrl='<%#"~/Biography.aspx?PersonId=" + 
              Eval("PersonId") %>' />

Bind Event Receiver to List Dynamically


Hey all, I've been working on a little application page that will give users the option to say whether a list should allow duplicate title entries.

I am able to pass the current list GUID to the application page using this:

<UrlAction Url="~site/_layouts/preventduplicates.aspx?List={ListId}"/>

within a custom action which I've added to the list settings. I'm kind of stuck now....


I'm not sure how to grab this GUID out of the url, and use it so I can bind the current list with my event receiver. Every example I've seen of binding has used a hard coded list name which is fine as an example, but isn't the best for real applications. Or is there a way to use the GUID to get the lists name which I can then pass to the spweb.Lists[var] ? Since I won't know the list name beforehand.

Hope all of that makes sense, any suggestions are appreciated.

Unable to bind a List of a [DataContract] class to a ListBox




I have a class who is used by Silverlight though RIA Services and who contains the [DataContract] and on its properties [DataMember].

That class is also used by my WPF Application and i have a List<myClass> which i want to bind it on ListBox.


The problem is when i bind the list, when i select an item in my listbox, the first item is always selected and the right-click doesn't work properly.

In fact, the behavior of UI is weird and badly refreshed.

But, before, the class didn't have DataContract/DataMember attributes and it worked fine.


Do you know, a workaround to continue to use that class and avoid to create an other class specially for databind ?
