ListView with DataPager problem on ASP.NET 4

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm currently working on upgrading an existing ASP.NET 3.5 app to ASP.NET 4 and I found a rather odd behavior with a ListView and DataPager. I'm using a ListView with an ObjectDataSource and in the ListView I have a DataPager with a NumericPagerField. On my 3.5 web app the page will display the ListView properly and will display the page number links at the bottom, where the DataPager is located. If I go to the last page and delete row by row until all are gone, the ListView will automatically page to the previous page. This is all behavior out-out-the-box since I don't have any special code for paging.

When I run the same app on ASP.NET 4 the behavior changes. The ListView no longer automatically pages to the previous page and I'm left with an empty list, with no way to get back to the previous pages even though there is still data to be retrieved. I get no DataPager control at the bottom because at this point what the ListView is displaying is the EmptyDataTemplate.

The way I've been able to reproduce this is by creating two web apps as follows:

Using Visual Studio 2010 Premium (a release version, not a demo or preview)

Create an empty web application (I called mine WebApplication1) using ASP.NET 3.5 and create a new web form called WebForm1.aspx

Use the following code:

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

Display a nested child ListView on PostBack while using DataPager on parent ListView


Hello ASP.NET community,

I am having trouble finding how to solve the following issue :

I am using nested listviews to display Sales and Sales details.

The main ListView displays General Information about Sales and the child ListView displays the detailed information about one sale. the child listview is shown only when the user clicks on a link (see included code, DataBind is made on PageLoad) :

ASPX Markup Code :

<asp:listview id="lvSales" runat="server" onitemdatabound="lvSales_ItemDataBound">

A layout, mouse selection, ListView problem/question

I'm having a problem with a particular layout scenario, and how it interacts with a left mouse click in certain situations. I have 3 rows in a Grid.  The first is a ListView (Master), with the Row Height set to '*'. It's ItemSource is bound to a collection in a ViewModel, and its SelectedItem is bound to a value in the ViewModel.  When the SelectedItem is null, it should take up its entire container (the other 2 rows are invisible). The second row is the GridSplitter.  It's visibility is bound to a value in the ViewModel.  It's only visible when the SelectedItem in the Master ListView is not null.  It's GridRow height is set to Auto, and it's height is explicitly set to 5 (via a style). The third row is a sub-ListView that shows Detail data for the Master SelectedItem in the top ListView.  It's GridRow Height is set to zero by default, and if an item is selected in the Master ListView, it should become visible and have a set height (400 to start, via a binding on the Height of the row). The desired effect is that when an item is selected in the Master ListView, the Detail ListView becomes visible and the GridSplitter allows you to resize the top and bottom as needed.  If necessary, the ScrollBars become visible in the Master ListView to show any items that are now obscured by the Detail ListView (via the automatic scrolling featur

Problem with listview selection

I have the following problem (which I have seen documented in many places with no solution).  I populate a listview.  The steps I use are: Set the ItemsSource to nothing (VB) Set the ItemsSource to the collection to be bound to Set the selected item to nothing (VB) Set the selected item to the first item in the collection The problem is that when I use the down arrow key to change selection in the listview, the first time I use the down arrow nothing happens.  After that first glitch everything works.  I have seen many "solutions" but none that work. Any ideas?? Thanks LLoyd Sheen

Problem with ListView and SelectionMode="Single"

  I have the following XAML: <Grid>       <ListView SelectionMode="Single" Height="100" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="26,118,0,0" Name="listBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120">       <ListView.View>       <GridView>       <GridViewColumn Header="Test"/>       </GridView>       </ListView.View>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       <ListViewItem>Test</ListViewItem>       </ListView>       </Grid>       Just a stock ListView with SelectionMode="Single". Isn't SelectionMode="Single" supposed to be single selection mode? There seems to be a lot of weird stuff with the Ctrl-Key. I tested the same behavior in a standard W

Exception caused by DataPager.SetPageProperties() on ListView (postback error)

 Hi, I have a issue with drives me crazy! I'm using the DataPager method SetPageProperties() to restore the current page in my listview after I navigated into a page related to a listview item. (I persist the current page in the session state) I display 10 items at a time, and there are 10 pages. Everything works perfectly for the first 100 items, .... but after I go beyond (to display pages 11 to 20), if I call SetPageProperties() to restore the proper "current" page, I cannot submit anymore anything without getting the following exception: An error has occurred because a control with id 'ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder$ContentPlaceHolder1$m_ListViewSearchItems$lvProductsPager$ctl00$ctl10' could not be located or a different control is assigned to the same ID after postback. If the ID is not assigned, explicitly set the ID property of controls that raise postback events to avoid this error. The exception refers to the DataPager sub-controls which are not rendered the same way for first pages (1 - 10) than (11 - 21); Is that because it expect then a "previous page" button? I don't quite know what to think about it. Does anyone have a clue?

Listview WebPart Selectedview problem

We have a problem with the Listview WebPart on our current project.Situation:We are building custom sitedefinitions for a portal site. In these site definition we add our webpart/features that have to be deployed with this sitedefinition.In that defintion (ONET.xml) we add a ListViewWebPart on the page. <View List="Whiteboard" BaseViewID="3" WebPartZoneID="Left" WebPartOrder="2"    Type="108" /> Sofar everything is going fine, we generate our webs with the definition and the webpart renders like it should on the page.We then add an item in the list (Discussion list). Again sofar everything fine. when we then try to click on the item to view it in the webpart the item seems to magically disappear from within the webpart. However the items stays in the list so it's not like it gets deleted.After some searching we found out that when we bind the selectedview on the webpart again (modify shared webpart -> selected view) the item reappears just as magically as it disappeared.The problem is that for our project we have to create more then 90 webs with this sitedefinition and it's not an option manually start clicking every web for this "bug".Whe tried two other ways to solve this problem without success.First way was to remove the listviewwebpart declaration from the ONET and add the webpart with C# code in

ListView, DataPager, LinqDataSource: LinqDataSource Selecting event fire twice


Dear all,

In my web app, I used LinqDataSource, ListView and DataPager (.NET 3.5 sp1) to implement search feature with paging. I have a button to trigger the search.

But In the first time, the Selecting event of LinqDataSource fire twice and I don't know why (I debugged my code very carefully). I don't use QueryString with DataPager and assign PageSize of DataPager in the first time of page load to prevent the ListView bind again (as in some instructions I found in forum)

Have anyone seen this problem before? And If possible, can you give me some instructions to try?

I can't post my code because it's quite large.

Thank you very much

DataPager Manual input From Listview Control


Hi There,

I've been trying to marry up the listview and the Data pager with my own, Database class that pulls the information from the database.

I can display the information ok no problem, fortunately this time I know what the problem is, but I cannot figure out a way around the problem.

In my Page_Load event I fill out the listview accordingly:


Dim mList As List(Of Object) = mDbase.Record.Items("SELECT TBLResults.ID, Draw, [Date], B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, BB, Jackpot, Wins, Machine, BallSet FROM TBLResults, TBLMachine WHERE TBLResults.MachineID=TBLMachine.ID ORDER BY Draw", GetType(ResultItem))


     Me.ListView1.DataSource = mList





The problem lies in the postback, I need to figure out a way get the information as to what state the DataPager is in so I could update the Query accordingly.

I know there is a StartRowIndex avaialbe but this does not get updated in the Page_Load event.

Has anybody got any ideas?

Listview and DataPager not playing well together


environment:  VWD 2010 Express, SQL 2008 Express, .NET 4.0, VB

ok so this is driving me nuts!  I have a page with 4 radio buttons followed by 3 cascading ddl followed by a tab container with 5 tabs.  Each tab holds a listview, etc that is particular to the group that has access to that tab.  On page load I filter the listview based on who is logged in plus which radio button and DDL is selected - all ok so far.

after the page load, the initial datapager works fine and all other listview functions are fine.  However, if I select the 4th radio button, the data returned is correct and the datapager shows as if it knows the correct number of items but if I click the datapager page 2 (or Last, etc) it immediately reloads the correct data as if it were a new page load (and changes the datapager appropriately).  My suspicions are that this is due to the declarative select command defaulting to the data that it always goes back to. 

I have tried to move the select to the code behind and played with the tabcontainer prerender event.  That eventually got me to the point where the datapager was working properly but then I could no longer edit any of the dropdowns in my listview edit screen where I could before.   They would go through the motions but as soon as you selected a new dropdown value, it would revert bac

Problem with ListView' SelectionChanged event


I have a listview (C#) with some items representing metadata objects. Near this listview I have a Panel where the structure of selected metadata object is shown.

When user selects one item I want to show my Panel (with structure of this item).

When user doesn't select any item or selects many items I want to hide my Panel.

It works but there are a lot of blinks during selection changes. I've prepared workaround to this issue by checking in SelectionChanged event whether the number of selected items changed (none -> one, one -> many, many -> one, one -> none). If the number changed so I show or hide the panel, in other cases I don't do anything.

But one blink is still here. When I just move one-item selection from one item to another then SelectionChanged occures 2 times (for previous selected item and then for next selected item). So my check works incorrectly in this case: one item selection changes to none selection (first SelectionChanged event) and panel becomes hidden, then none selection changes to one item selection (second SelectionChanged event) and panel becomes shown. So user sees blinks.

How can I detect whether user deselected all items at all or just moved the selection from one item to another.

Thanks a lot. Sorry for my English:)

DataPager works inside ListView, but not outside


I have a ListView that uses an ObjectDataSource

When I add a DataPager control INSIDE the ListView, it works fine and the ListView's PagePropertiesChanging event fires.

When I move the DataPager OUTSIDE the ListView control and set its PagedControlID to the ListView, it stops working and the ListView's PagePropertiesChanging event no longer fires.

i.e. This works (and the ListView's PagePropertiesChanging fires):

        <asp:ListView ID="lvItems" runat="server" DataSourceID="dsItems" ItemPlaceholderID="itemPlaceholder">

ListView - Insert Problem



I have a ListView where I am trying to do an insert.

I put the property "oniteminserting" in the ListView, and created the method in the codebehind of the page.

When I try to insert a record, is not calling the method "ListView1_ItemInserting. I put a breakpoint in the method, but is not calling it.

To call the input method in ListView, I'm doing the following:

oniteminserting = "ListView1_ItemInserting"

And the method:

protected void ListView1_ItemInserting (object sender, ListViewInsertEventArgs e)

I tried to delete the method call in the listview, I went into design mode, I clicked in the ListView, I went into properties, events, I gave a double-click the event ItemInserting to recreate the method. But even so, the problem continues.

Does anyone know what might be happening?
