Gridview Check box and Parse()

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


Documentation for using a checkbox with a gridview has the following statement:


Because a check box can display only a selected or an unselected state, a CheckBoxField object can be bound only to a field with a Boolean data type or a string that can be parsed by Parse.


No example has yet been found to explain how using Parse to control the value of theis done.  Interestingly enough I can find a fine example for the unlikely scenario of embedding a bulleted list in a grid cell. 

How can get a Y/N (or Y/blank) value into the checkbox field?

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Continuing exploring JQuery! I decided to implement a feature to display some kind of details related to a row displayed on GridView. For example when displaying employees details on GridView some information might not fit in the GridView because it will make it huge and wide. These infomration can be diplayed as Tooltip. Or when you want to display a picture and some kind of formated text to be diplayed as tooltip when mouse hover on the image.
