Cutting Edge: Adding a Context Menu to ASP.NET Controls


Although the context menu is a common element of most desktop applications, it is still fairly uncommon in Web application names because it doesn't map well to a server-based technology like ASP. NET.

Advanced Basics: Adding New Features with User Controls


In past versions of Visual Basic, there were rudimentary graphics controls. In Visual Basic .NET you have the GDI+ library, which enables you to draw lines, circles, and most anything else. But how can you use the functionality of GDI+ to create lines and other graphics that respond to user mouse clicks and events? Find out.

Adding client event handlers to an ASP.NET controls programmatically



I want to add client event handlers to ASP.NET controls (For example: GridView/Button ) programmatically to ASP.NET.

I am aware of "onclick" event handler, so my code would be

GridView1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "JSGridViewFunction()");

Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "JSButtonFunction()");

I want to know what are all the event handlers that are available for (or that can be added to)  ASP.NET controls.

For example, I want to add "onsort" event handler to ASP.NET GridView control.

But the following code fails

GridView1.Attributes.Add("onsort", "JSGridViewFunction()");

Please help.


Problem with list controls and update progress template



I have an update panel that surrounds a wizard control which I use in conjunction with a update progress control. Now my update progress control works perfectly, with my animated gif and div tag that lays over my wizard control when the user goes from step to step. However, there is a problem that I am struggling to solve. A number of my steps use controls like list boxes, and when the update progress control fires, the list control is not laying underneath my div an animated gif no matter how high a make my css z-index on the div.

Does anyone have a way of solving this?


In a style template, express a property in terms of the controls properties it is applied to.

Hello,   In the style template below, which works fine, I'd like to express the "Points" property in terms of the applied to controls "Width" and "Height" properties.  As you see, the "Fill" property is expressed in terms of the "Background" property the template is applied to by means of Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}".  The following does not work:   Points="0,({TemplateBinding Height} / 4)  ({TemplateBinding Width} / 12.5),({TemplateBinding Height} / 4) . . ."   Is what I'm looking for possible, all in XAML, no code/converters? <Style x:Key="FolderButton" TargetType="Button"> <Setter Property="Margin" Value="2.5" /> <Setter Property="Template"> <Setter.Value> <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> <Grid> <Polygon Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}" Stroke="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" Points="0,5 4,5 6,0 23,0 25,5 50,5 50,20 0,20"/> <ContentPresenter HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"/> </Grid> </ControlTemplate>

this.controls.add - not always adding to parent form

My current code (snippet below) iterates through user info and adds the same custom control to a form based on how many "Meals" (1-6) the user has selected.  It appears that all even # controls (the second, fourth and sixth) are added to the previously added control, rather than the parent form, when I later try to dispose the controls by iterating through this.controls, only 1, 3 and 5 appear, the others appear as children to 1, 3 & 5. I've reduced controls size, etc. to make sure they're not overlapping (if that can force inheritence?) but no luck.  Anyone have suggestions on what to look at or other guidance? public void drawMealPanel(Meal m, int x, int y) { Controls.MealDisplay md = new Controls.MealDisplay(m); md.Name = m.name; md.Tag = m.id.ToString(); md.Left = x; md.Top = y; md.DragDrop += new System.Windows.Forms.DragEventHandler(this.MealView_DragDrop); md.DragEnter += new System.Windows.Forms.DragEventHandler(this.MealView_DragEnter); this.Controls.Add(md); }

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Dynamically adding User Controls -- newbie question!

I am new to ASP.NET (coming from ColdFusion, thank goodness I'm away from that!).  And I am have THE hardest time understanding how to work with forms in ASP.NET.  Here's what I am doing:Dynamically add User Controls to a PlaceHolder based on some int value (which currently is passed in a HiddenField).Fire an event if the WebControls inside of the User Control change, then handle that event in the Main Page (i.e. save the input to DB)When the user clicks the "Next/Continue" button, the next controls for the next page are loaded.And I guess maybe I just can't seem to get how things work in ASP.NET, because I am really struggling with the general idea of how ASP.NET flows.  Should I be dynamically loading the controls in Page_Init, or Page_Load?  Or should I load the controls when the buttonclick event is fired?Do I have to add the axCtrl.OnDataChange += new EventHandler(HandleAxControlDataChange); line on Page_Load?  Or should I put this in When I first load the UserControl, I need to initialize some WebControls within the UserContorl.  Is there a way to know if I have loaded new user controls into my placeholder?  I can't use Page.IsPostback, because after the first page, every page is a postback from the buttonclick.Any help for this confused newbie would be GREATLY appreciated!!Here's what I have: pu

Create site template and adding subsite using site template is broken in sharepoint 2010

Question about adding ASP.NET controls to the page later on via programming logic



I'm pretty new to ASP.NET as you'd expect and I'm coming from a PHP scripting background. I am understanding ASP.NET development so far, however, say you have added many controls onto the web page and later on you want to remove a specific block of controls and add new ones, and this is via programming logic (the backend VB file), how would you go about doing this? Or would you have to go for the approach of adding these controls in a container to the web page first - making them invisible - until you need to use them in your programming logic?



Adding Controls dynamically in the infopath form - A standard Expense Entry scenario



I am having a requirement where I need to create an Expense Report Entry form using Infopath 2010. 

1) The form would have pre-defined columns/Controls like Exp.Type(drop-down) , Details , Location, Amount , Curruncy, Date etc..

2) User can enter/update as many line items as possible by clicking Add/Update/Delete for the each line items. So basically its like adding the same row dynamically.

3) When User Submits, I need to capture this data and post it to SAP where I am using SAP web Services.

Can you please suggest if this is possible in InfoPath form ?

If Yes, how can I achieve this dynamic line items functionality in InfoPath

And how can I read the data using the code so that I can Post it to the WebService?

Odd issue with createuserwizard--can't see controls I add to template in code behind in .net 4.0


I was able to customize the createuserwizard in .net 3.5 with no problems.  I could add controls like the dropdownlist for city and state.  In the code behind, I was able to reference these controls by name, such as ddlstate.  However, I'm creating a new site from the ground up in .net 4.0 and was trying to edit the website that visual web developer 2010 creates when you create a new web site.  I went to the register.aspx page and added the city and state dropdowns.  In the code behind, I can't reference them as ddlstate anymore.  I even tried setting the clientidmode to static at the page level since I know the control names get mangled but that didn't help either.  However, the project builds fine as long as I don't attempt to reference the dropdownlist by name in the code behind. 

I'm also using jquery that I pulled from a working .net 3.5 site I had that gets errors when trying to reference the dropdownlist by name in .net 4.0.  The error says "ddlstate" is not a member of "asp.account_register_aspx".  The dropdownlist is set to runat server so I'm really confused why both my jquery and code behind can't seem to see the control in the createuserwizard control.  If I move the dropdownlist outside of the createuserwizard, it can see it and use it just fine.  A

Adding controls dynamically


Hi All,
I am creating a questionnaire in a gridview. The questions, answer options and answer control are under CMS. So I am building the questionnaire 'on the fly' adding controls to the page dynamically.

In Page_Load during !Page.IsPostback I bind the question text to the gridview then have another method that iterates through the gridview rows, and adds the controls to a cell eg.gvr.Cells[1].Controls.Add(rbl); The page renders correctly - I see all questions, answers and answer control eg, DropDownList, RadioButtonList, TextBox etc.

The problem is when I try to save the selected options, FindControl cannot find the controls. Even though when I view source I can see all ctrls and ids. I've seen a lot of posts about this issue and CreateChildControl, EnsureChildControl seem to be the route to take. But I don't unserstand how to use them. Can anyone point me to a good example?

And if anyone can explain why it is not working. The page 'looks' to be rendering correctly. Why then are the controls not being found on the postback? Are the controls not being added to the ViewState?
