Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Posted By: Venkat     Posted Date: February 13, 2010    Points: 2   Category :ASP.Net
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.

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. Many Thanks --Sam

ASP.NET Multiple Selection DropDownList with AJAX HoverMenuExtender

Recently, I was looking for a multiple selection dropdownlist control for my new project. After spending some time researching for it, I decided to put together all my finding in one web user control. This web user control consists of an ASP.NET AJAX HoverMenuExtender, JavaScript, StyleSheet and CheckBoxListExCtrl . The final product will work with or without a MasterPage and you can drag and drop more than one instances of the control on to the page.

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.

Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected


How do I Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected and make multiple entities data available in the same column.  Currently it supports only single value for an item.  This requirement is crucial need some solution immediately.

BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.

DataGrid ValidationRule or IDataErrorInfo validation code called multiple times for each data change

Following my enquiry regarding a problem in Datagrid validation, for which managing exceptions is apparently a problem, I tested the two other methods: using validation rules, or implementing the IDataErrorInfo interface. I ran into other problems there, more insidious this time. This has been done on Windows7 (32-bit), .NET 4.0.30319. 1) IDataErrorInfo When this interface is implemented, the this[string columnName] property is called four times for each modification: two times before the cell enters edit mode (with the old value in the corresponding property) two times when the new value has to be validated (with the new value) It strikes me as not really efficient, is there something wrong with my code? Here's the C# part: using System; using System.Windows; using System.Collections.ObjectModel; using System.ComponentModel; namespace DataGridTest2 { public partial class MainWindow : Window { ObservableCollection<User> users; public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); users = new ObservableCollection<User>() { new User { Name = "Teddy", Age = "2" }, new User { Name = "Avi", Age = "19" } }; datagrid.ItemsSource = users; datagrid.Focus(); } } public class User : INotifyPropertyChanged, IDataErrorInfo { string name; public string Name

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!!!

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!

Data Binding a DataGrid to a list fetch the same data multiple times

Hi, I'm using DataGrid to show data through data binding. My data are provided in a list. The setup I have is the following: DataGrid "binded" to the default view of my list that implement IList<T> and IList interfaces (MyList<T> : IList<T>, IList, INotifyCollectionChanged)             CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView(_myList);             // Set the data context             DataContext = view; T: is here my 'business object' that hold the data, called 'MyRow'. Then the columns of the DataGrid are bound to public properties of 'MyRow' object. MyRow class has a public property of type 'object' (public object data[int index]) and first column of datagrid is bound to myRow.data[0], second column is bound to myRow.data[1] and so on.   When the datagrid is displayed, databinding kick in and my data are showed in the control. The issue I'm having is that data fetching is very repetitive even for the same rows. For example for a datagrid with 20 visible rows, the first row is fetched multiple times even if the datagrid is not resized or moved. I put break point inside my list (MyList<T> into This[T] property (public T this[int index]) and i got multiple hits into the property for the same index. Fetc

MOSS 2007: list column that lookup to multiple documents stored in doc library

Hi All, I'm trying to understand how to customise MOSS to achieve the following: I need to lookup from a list to multiple documents stored in a documetn library. Example: - List item 1 --------> Lookup to Doc 2                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5 - List item 2 --------> Lookup to Doc 3                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5                   --------> Lookup to Doc 8 - List item 3 --------> Lookup to Doc 1 How can I achieve this? is it possible that in the lookup I have a "search" option? Thanks all Vit

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?
