Update a field in a gridview to False on a Button Click

 Hi, Ive got a list of records in a gridview (from an SQLDataSource) where a field value is set to True.  I've also added a "reset" button in a template field at the start of the row in the Gridview. What I would like to do is allow the user to click the reset button on a particular row and 'reset' the true value to 'false' (updating the source data). Are there any idiot proof tutorials to do this??? Many thanks for your help! Fiorano

Updating Person/Group Field when Current User Clicks Button


Hi all,

Im trying to either add the current user to a multi person/group field or remove them if they are already in the field when they click a button. My code works to decide which button to render on the page - it will show "Add" if the current user is not in the multi person/group field (titled Members) or it will display "Remove" if the current user already exists in the multi person/group field.

My problem is that when the user clicks the button, i want to take the value in the multi person/group field and use XSL string functions to either add/remove the current user to/from the string and push the updated string back into the multi person/group field - This is not working for me. I can reference the correct column with javascript, but it seems the value i get from the person/group column is not just a simple string, its got all sorts of HTML in there. I was hoping just to get a string like, "member1;member2;...). Ive tried changing the field to just display the account (rather than the name with presence), but it still pulls back a huge chunk of code that i cant work with.

Below is my code so far, just to give you an idea - anyone know what im doing wrong?


Custom Form with Lookup Field does not validate when it's set to require.


I have a lookup field in my custom new form and it's suppose to pull an id.  However, I have nothing to relate to this, so shouldn't the required validation trigger?

Is there a workaround for this or do I need to take this a step forward and write some custom code?


Thanks in advance!

Update a field that isn't in the row using a button in gridview


I have a gridview which shows a list of data... at the end of each item I have added a button which is linked to the onclick event... when a button is clicked I want a value to update on that specific row... but I can't get it to work :( my code is below...

SqlDataSource 1 code...

UpdateCommand="UPDATE [PurchaseProduct] SET [BDConfirmSent] = 'Yes' Where [Id] = @Id">

            <asp:Parameter Name="Id" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="BDConfirmSent" />

Code Behind...

Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Updating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) Handles SqlDataSource1.Updating

        e.Command.Parameters("@BDConfirmSent").Value = "Yes"

End Sub

Protected Sub Button1_Click()


End Sub

When I click the button it just postsback the page but then the [BDConfirmSent] field is still empty instead of being "Yes"

Using Button Field in GridView?

In .NET 1.1 to put in a link to download files from my server I used a Button Field in a DataGrid.

In .NET 2.0 I am trying to do the same with a GridView. 
In the Source of my page I put in <asp:ButtonField Text="Download" CommandName="Download"/>.
Then for the code behind I put in
Protected Sub GridView1_Download(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Download" Then
        End If
    End Sub
Download was a fuction and (e.Item.Cells(4).Text) would be the path to the file.  I noticed in a GridView I can't use
Is there a different way to do this?  Or should I not use a ButtonField and use something else?

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task.

Problem with Dynamic Button


Hi friends,

I am trying to make a page inspired from http://login.qlikview.com/help.aspx

here I have made a dropdownlist and on clicking I am able to dynamically add the textboxes and radio buttons using placeholders. My problem is I am not able to use a dynamic number of submit buttons. In the page (link above) I need to make the submit button available for two choices and invisible for one.  But the option dynamicbutton is not available alike dynamicTextboxes etc. What could I do? Is there any other way I could figure out to implement this.

Thanking you in advance,
