Setting Values to dropdown in Repeater Dynamically

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Ok So I have a Dropdown in a repeater, which currently has a drop down linking to a single datasource which just 10 items in it..so all the drop downs will have 1-10 as options.

Now I need to change this since each item in the repeater (i.e products) could have a different quantity.

This is what I currently have

<asp:Repeater ID="rptEventsList"  DataSourceID="srcServicesList" runat="server" >
        <input type="hidden" name="hidden<%# Eval("displayOrder").ToString()%>" value="<%# Eval("itemCode").ToString()%>" />
        <input type="hidden" name="price<%# Eval("displayOrder").ToString()%>" value="<%# Eval("unitPrice").ToString()%>" />
        <asp:HiddenField ID="hdnItemCode" runat="server"  Value='<%# Eval("itemCode").ToString()%>'/>
        <td><asp:DropDownList  ID="qtyList" AutoPostBack="true"  OnSelectedIndexChanged="cblServicesLi

Retain DropDown,TextBox's previously selected values after redirected from another page.


 Hi People, How are you all doing?

I have 2 pages one is SearchPage & It has DropDowns, textboxes to specify the search criteria. From the search result the user is redirected to another page when he clicks the hyperlink in the search result  where he fills in the information and again redirected to SearchPage. Now the SearchPage is posted back with no state i just want to retain the search criteria and display when user comes back. Please give me some suggestion how to get this done. I've used ViewState to save the values and check them in Page_Load but they are null.   



 Update: I've come up with this code. But the problem is The values are being retained but the Button_Click event is not being handled properly. When i Check the code even after this "DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString();" DownList1.SelectedValue is EMPTY"" samw with DropDownList2 . please Suggest something


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (IsControlsEmpty())
            if (SessionExist())
                DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString()

Help with updating database with values from Repeater control using c#


Hello, I'm new to ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. I really need some help.

I used a Repeater control to create a simple (editable) list where, when a user logs in, they can edit their list of expenses.  The ASP page works fine.

 My issue is with the code-behind.  I am really confused with how to extract the values from the repeater control. The FindControl method does not seem to be working.  Also, the code I am using resets my 'Amount' values back to 0.00. (0.00 is the amount the user sees when they first encounter the page).

 Here's a portion of the code on the ASP page:

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"





<td><asp:Label ID="lblExpId" runat="server"  Text='<%# Bind("ExpId") %>'></asp:Label> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="lblExpense" runat="server" Width= "190px" Text='<%# Bind("ExpenseName") %>'></asp:Textbox> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="txtAmount" runat="server" Width= "100px"

Setting Managed MetaData default values on site creation

I am working on a project where the requirement is to have specific document content types.  I have therefore create a site columns feature which creates all my columns, I have a Site Contentypes feature which creates all my content type and I have list templates based on my content types.  I also have created a couple of Site definition features which create specific list instance based on my list template As part of my content types I have created a few Managed Metadata fields which I wanted to set defaults for on the creation of my sites.  I have therefore created a feature which is right at the end of the WebFeatures section in my ONET.xml.  This features enumerates through all lists, looking for specific column names(managed metadata columns) and looks to set these to specific values.  The code to set the default value on the field is: TaxonomyField documentCategoryField = (TaxonomyField)library.Fields["Document Category"]; if (documentCategoryTerm != null) { documentCategoryField.DefaultValue = documentLibraryDefault.ToString(); documentCategoryField.Update();                                                     }                         &n

Cannot retrieve values of dynamically generated controls

Hi All, I am creating a user control which contains checkboxes and labels that needs to be created on fly. The dynamic generation of these controls depend on the values retreived from a SPlist. I have several panels that display items queried from the list on the basis of a selection criteria. On a button click event I need to capture all the selected values from the controls that were generated dynamically.  When I traverse each dynamic control that I added to the panel, I dont see their values. I tried using recursive retrieval of the control from the page as well but it just behaves crazy, it treats a radio button as a checkbox and returns a value that I am not looking for. I am not using the the page_load() or any other event, I use the button handler on my custom method. I was thinking for ViewState, ControlsState or SessionState. I assume ViewState may not work on this as the dynamically generated controls need to be in the page_load event. Please guide as this getting way more complicated than what I had ever thought of it to be.

Values in multiselect dropdown not getting selected when Select All option is selected


Values in multiselect dropdown not getting selected when Select All option is selected for a SSRS dropdown.

There are multiple dropdowns on the page. We have one dropdown whose output is being used to populate the second dropdown using a stored procedure. When we check the Select All checkbox on the dropdown then ideally upon page refresh all the values should get selected in the dropdown, but in this case the page refreshes back to the blank dropdown, forcing the user to select the values again. The next dropdown too does not get populated. This makes it impossible to run the report for all the cases by using Select All.

We ran the report on differnet database environments. My current location is Mumbai,India, the report worked fine when we ran it on a Bangalore,india database. This issue occurs when we try running it on a Chicago database server.

I am using SSRS 2005, SQL2005.

If anybody has faced such an issue earlier, please help me out here.  Thank you. 


Adding Multiple Selected Values to ListBox Dynamically


I have a ListBox control that gets populated from a database like this:

For Each gvr As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
                Dim lb As ListBox = CType(gvr.FindControl("SectionsListBox"), ListBox)
                For Each sect As String In sectionlist


Then the selected values also get populated like this:

For Each gvr As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
                Dim lb As ListBox = CType(gvr.FindControl("SectionsListBox"), ListBox)
                Dim faqid As Integer = gvr.Cells(0).Text
                selectedlist = oCMS.getFAQSections(faqid)
                For Each sect As String In selectedlist
                    lb.SelectedValue += sect


I need to have multiple selections, but I cannot get it to select multiple values with this line "lb.SelectedValue += sect".  The listbox has been set in aspx to allow multiple selections.
