Can't Find DropDownList In Control Parameter

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a page with 2 Content Controls. Content1 has a SqlDataSource with a Control Parameter
that uses a Dropdown list. The dropdownlist is in Content2. I used viewsource to get
the dropdownlist control name which was
ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder6_ddlPersonFilter. I also got an error if I used ddlPersonFilter.
Thanks for any assistance.

Could not find control 'ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder6_ddlPersonFilter' in ControlParameter ''.

Unable to find Control ID of Dropdownlist Control of a UserControl from a ContentPage


I am implementing Master Pages in my existing project.

I am getting following Error:

" Unable to find control id '_ctl0:ContentPlaceH?older1:drop1:drop1' referenced by the 'ControlToValidate' property of 'valCust1'. "

I have a ContentPage which is refering to a UserContol. This UserControl has a DropDownList Control which i need to validate.

I am using a CustomValidator to validate the Dropdownlist and this CustomValidator is placed in the ContentPage.

The ControlToValidate Property of the CustomControl is assigned programatically as
(in ASPX.cs)

Control CTRL1;

ContentPlaceHolder cntplcHolder = (ContentPlaceHolder)?this.Master.FindCont?rol("ContentPlaceHol?der1");

 CTRL1 = cntplcHolder.FindCon?trol("drop1").FindCo?ntrol("drop1");

 valCust1.ControlToValidate = CTRL1.UniqueID;

My .ASPX page contains

<%@ Register TagPrefix="it" TagName="PickCntl1" Src="~/UserControls/?PickCntl1.ascx" %>

<it:PickCntl1 id="drop1" Runat="Server" Required="true" DisplayDefault="true?"></it:PickCnt?l1>


ASP.NET DropDownList Web Control, Part 1

Anybody with much experience in ASP has written an include file function for populating the contents of a SELECT dropdown list with entries from a database. Some of the more advanced users have even gone so far as to add caching to their function to reduce database hits for these rarely changing menu options. Naturally, these same techniques are going to be used with ASP.NET, but with a new programming object model. ASP.NET provides a web control, the DropDownList, which can be used for the same purposes as our custom built SELECT tag from Classic ASP.

Cant find vsi file for CSS Friendly Control Adapters


Hi guys

This is driving me crazy... I cant find the .vsi file for installing the CSS Friendly Control Adapters Project. Does anyone know where I can get this?

The following link: http://www.asp.net/cssadapters/ only leads to the CodePlex wiki where I can download the dll and a partial solution. Essentially, I'm looking for the source code to implement the Menu adapter.

Any help is much appreciated!

asp expression bound to user control parameter?


How can I get pass the DataKey of a GridView to a usercontol, preferably without code behind.

Why doesn't this work:

<ucOrderDetails:AJAX_OrderDetail ID="od1" runat="server" OrderNumber='<%# GridView1.SelectedValue.ToString() %>'  />

GridView1 is just a list of orders with a DataKey of OrderNumber.

od1 is not inside of a databout control, does it need to be?

output cache to be used only when parameter has changed + old question of user control not answered



i have 2 questions about output cache:

1.is it just me , or does it seems that it is used only after the second time that the user reaches the webpage? if so, why, and how can i tweak it to my needs? my guess is that it wouldn't be logical to cache every time a user reach a webpage, but only when it happens enough times.

2.i know that i can use "varybyparam" for using the output cache when the parameter doesn't change , but it seems that it would use the output cache even if there is no parameter , or if the specified paramter is not there. is there a way to overcome this?

3.an old question that somehow marked as "answered" , yet i didn't solve : suppose i created a user control and i gave it values through the CTOR via the aspx file . is it possible to show the values from within the split/design mode? remember that i've talking about ASP.NET and not simply C# winforms . i write this because this question was on :


and the answer that i got was for C# and winforms . i've tried to do the same for ASP.NET , but i've failed.

can anyone please help me?

Accessing a row's dropdownlist values AFTER the gridview control is in Edit mode

Hello, I have a gridview control. When it goes into Edit mode, there are 3 dropdownlists in one cell that are populated by separate stored procedures during the RowDataBound event. The 1st dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 2nd dropdownlist is populated with. The 2nd dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 3rd dropdownlist is populated with. Everything works fine when the row is first put into Edit mode. While I'm in Edit mode and I change the selection in the 1st dropdownlist, how do I access the control so I can feed this new parameter to the 2nd dropdownlist? I have the first 2 dropdownlists set for AutoPostBack so that the Page_Load event is fired when the user changes a value. I know how to get access to these controls via the FindControl method when the row is being databound but how do I find the control during the Page_Load event? Thanks for any help!!!   Penny

HiI have a drop down list (created during form design) with auto postback enabled. And I use AJAX to prevent 'visible postback'. When a user choose an item from the drop down list, the system will then perform a postback and created a set of form control's such as label, drop down list and text box for entry.Then, I will have a button (created during form design), and when I click on the button, i want to find for the form control that are created after the post back, but I cant find them!I wonder if those form controls are render to the web form?? But I have no problem finding the drop down list that is created during design time.Anyway I can find those form controls?Thank You.
