Dynamically creating Gridview Template - Linkbutton Click not working



I have written some code to dynamically generate template columns for gridview which works well. However, each cell in the gridview has to be a linkbutton, which when clicked does a db update and redirects to a specific url with some parameters in it.

I have attached a click event handler to the linkbutton in the InstantiateIn method but the event does not seem to fire.

Could someone please help? the code is below -

gridview filtering using a codebehind (textbox + search button)

i am trying to replicate the following sequence: input text into text box > press search button > search a database using LIKE operator > display using a gridview or listview. this sequence is fairly easy to do using the drag and drop then sqldatasource options, but i am trying to do the same result using a codebehind.  here is my code:   ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SqlConnection myConn; myConn = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS; AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\projectDB.mdf; Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"); myConn.Open(); string strSQL; strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Message";       //strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Message WHERE Message LIKE '" + txtSearch.Text + "'"; SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, myConn); DataSet ds = new DataSet(); da.Fill(ds, "Message"); GridView1.DataSource = ds; GridView1.DataBind(); myConn.Close(); _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________  now, if I use this code inside a page_load event, it does work. if I put it inside a button_click event i get nothing. i am mystified by this.. any help? why can't i use a button to display my gridview1 when i'm using a code behind.  

Alert popup on Gridview Textbox Click

Hi,I am trying to make a Javascript Alert appear when someone clicks on a textbox that is part of a Gridview. the textbox is an Item template and I have an onclick="NotePopup()" in the TextBox properties. I am having trouble grabbing the correct ID of the text box, because it is nested inside a gridview. I have been looking around on Google for a solution but none of the responses are working for me.  The gridview will have multiple rows, so each textbox that could potentially be clicked will have a different ID, is there any way to pass the correct ID to the Javascript, or have the Javascript function grab the correct ID?I did use var Control = '<%= GridView1.ClientID %>';then cut and paste the ID from ViewSource of a textbox and append it to the Control Variable,  to test out the popup and it does workThanks for your helpChris

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

Build xml file from gridview values on button click

We are looking to add GoogleMaps to our application. With that said we are going to be using the geocoding api to pass in the lat and long values to pin point locations on the the map. Reading thru the documentation we can pass in the values via XML, so we would like to see how we can take the lat and long values from our gridview and pass that to the API if and when somone clicks on the button to show the map.. The process will work like so, you arrive at the search page, you complete a search, in most if not all cases, you will always get multiple results presented in a gridview. If you should to view them all on the map, you click button and it needs to map out each location on the map. So is there anyway to pull from the gridview the lat, long and description to pass into the API?   Any links to sites that i can review would be great. thanks.

cannot bind dropdownlist inside from button click inside updatepanel



I have a gridview inside UpdatePanel. 

Inside gridview there is a dropdownlist and a button on each row. On button click I am opening a panel through Modal popup extneder.

Inside that pop up there is again a dropdownlist. I am adding an item into this dropdownlist based on the selection from the dropdown inside gridview.

But first time this inserted item is not getting reflected in the dropdownlist. But after one postback this item is getting reflected.

Please let me know how to fix this. I tried UpdateMode conditional and always but didn't worked. If I am not clear let me know.

Gridview Link Button control click event


Respected Reader,

I have  Web page that uses LinkButton control inside Template Fields of Gridview.

I am trying to work on LinkButton Click event and trying to preserve the Value of LinkButton that user click, and based on that value, i want to refresh tha page data.

I used CommandName and CommandArgument property of Linkbutton, but i can use that property only in GridView_RowCommand method by checking e.CommandName expression. But the problem with that Gridview_RowCommand event fire after all other page_load activity. So the value never used in the page_load event to refresh the data in all other control.

I also tried to use OnClick Method, Session variable and Hidden variable. but when i run Response.Redirect method from Gridview_RowCommand, it clear all the Session and Hidden variable values. also tried (Response.Redirect(,false)) method but never got success.

Any suggestion will be appricated in advance.

I got a function to load a grid view and works fine. Then, I got a button, when click, I wanted to add a new row into the grid, what I did is I add a new to to the dataset and rebind the dataset to the grid view.

The problem I faced is that is it able to add a new row, but it only shows ONE column only, which is the most left column.

            string strSQL = null;
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();

            lblError.Text = "";

            strSQL = "Select * From tmp_Detail_Data_vaio1045xjh02l55bw4vtrmg_09282010_132652";

            ds = clsDataAccess.clsDataAccess.RetrieveDataSet(clsDataAccess.clsDataAccess.ConnStringDataCollection, strSQL);

            if (ds != null)
                ContentPlaceHolder myContent = (ContentPlaceHolder)Page.Master.FindControl("CPHDetail");
                GridView gvView = (GridView)myContent.FindControl("gvDetail");


                gvView.DataSource = ds;
