Datalist with embedded Grid or List...Sub Totals issue with iteration

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Let me see if one of you can assist with this one...


i have a similar situation, but mine does not use the selected item (item Command). Here is what the form is to do:


1. this is for an educational environment, so we use SID- NOT SSN's, but i use the SID as a filter in the subset as the grouping unique id.

2. I'm trying to inject a sub total row at the last line item of each SID (if more than one item in the report for that SID).

3. I'm looping thru the items in the Datalist Item Command with a for each (item i in Datalist2.Items).

Embedded datalist issue


I have done that in the past but I am bumping into a problem I can't figure out where is my mistake.

I am getting the error saying "DataBinding: 'System.Data.DataRow' does not contain a property with the name 'Cme_Nombre'. Pointing to <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Cme_Nombre")%>

I have this code:

<asp:datalist id="dl" runat="server" Width="573" RepeatLayout="Table" BorderWidth="0" ShowHeader="True"
                                    ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" ItemStyle-VerticalAlign="Top" RepeatColumns="1" BorderColor="#84b41f"

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature


I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.



Compile issue with List<> and Linq

I am pretty sure this is some framework version issue but I am getting this on a (custom layout) page compile migrated over from MOSS. The following code complies in my MOSS 2007 environment but does not in my new 2010 environment. Thanks in advance for any help. Code section #1: private bool isSuccessReturnCode(string s) { bool bReturn = false; // Following line fails looking for ';' XDocument loaded = XDocument.Parse(s); var q = from c in loaded.Descendants("Node") select (string)c.Element("ReturnCode");   Code Section #2 private InvoiceItem getInvoiceItem(Guid ID) { List<InvoiceItem> InvoiceItems = ((List<InvoiceItem>)ViewState["INVOICEITEMS"]);

Issue Adding a new Lookup Field to an existing List Instance

I have a code base that houses all of the column, content types, template, and list instance definitions. Am using the Update functionlaity a lot from version to version. Has been working well to this point. I just added two new columns (fields), one a Lookup and the other a Multi-Lookup. The fields are added fine on the update, columns look correct and the content type to which these were added also look fine. I can create a new List instance from the content type, and the new lookup columns are fine. The problem is this. Any existing list instances that were created from this same content type, now blow up when I try and access list items via the SP GUI. Something about a valid GUID, I dont't have the exect error anymore, but will repost it when I recreate the issue for the tenth time. I tried deleting the new lookup fields from this new list instance, thinking that I might be able to re-add them to fix the problem, but I get a new stack trace when I try and re-add them. Any hints on where I can start digging would be appreciated. I think I'll start with comparing the list instance schemas between an existing list and a newly created one.  

Relation List Lookup Issue

Hi, I have 2 lists that are related. List 1 - costs ----- cost - Number quarter - Drop Down Created By - Default SP Field List 2 - people ----- person - User/Group AD Lookup team - drop down I am trying to link these 2 lists so I can retrieve the users team from the people list in a view for the costs. I have tried making it so the user has manually select their name for each cost (instead of using the Created By field), but when I try to make this value a lookup it doesn't allow me to select the person or team field from the people list? Does a lookup only allow you to lookup text values and is there a work around? Many Thanks, Michael

Trying to incorporate the use of a dropdown list control with a grid view control


I'm trying to setup a page that will utilize a dropdown list control inside of a grid view control using VS 2005 2.0 version. Everything that I can find online seems to only show the use of the dropdown list control using a data grid. I don't want to use a data grid because it doesn't have the functionality/ power as the grid view control. Can someone please tell me how I can incorporate a dropdown list control with the grid view control? Here is a copy of my code.

<asp:GridView ID="HardwareSetdv" runat="server" AllowPaging="True"
        AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="AcctID"
            <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="HardwareSetID" HeaderText="HardwareSetID"
                InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression=&quo

Calendar List View Issue - No Month, Week, Day Icons


I'm trying to setup a Calendar view for a list in SharePoint 2010. Everything is working the way I want, except there are no icons to change the view from Month, Week, or Day. Right now, if someone clicks on a date on the calendar, it switches to the Day view. But there is no way for them to go back to the month view.

I open the page in SharePoint Designer, and in the Design view I can see three icons on the Calendar (Month, Week, Day). But at no time do these icons show up anywhere except the design view.

I want it to have the arrow buttons, the month and year (which are already displaying) and then the icons to change the view. How do I get them to appear?

InfoPath list form publish issue when URL changes



We have a problem with publishing SharePoint InfoPath List Forms when site's or some top level site's URL is changed. After someone changes the URL that change does not affect to the InfoPath list form's publish URL value and you are not able to publish the form anymore. I got the following error message and if I change the URL back what it was before then publish works fine again. I don't know is this a feature or bug but does someone know is it possible to somehow update the publish URL to the form so that the possible site URL changes won't break the form publishing? 

The SOAP response indicates that an error occurred on the server:

Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown.
<detail><errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">There is no Web named "/sites/......./_vti_bin/Lists.asmx".</errorstring></detail>



list throttling issue


List throttling Set to all users : 5000 (the magic number)

for Admin : 20000 

now I have around 5400+ items.


Thru Object model I want to get the items (all)  - for administrators it works.   For non administrators (contributors) its saying the expected "This view cannot be displayed because it exceeds the list view threshold "

Is there a way to override this ? I tried using  the Override property in the SPQuery

query .QueryThrottleMode = SPQueryThrottleOption.Override;

But still, the Override is helping, ie.,  The Threshold error comes.


Bulk editing issue - list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view



On a sharepoint page i click on 'Actions' tab then select 'Edit in Datasheet'  and i see the following error message


"The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons: A datasheet component compatible with Windows SharePoint Services is not installed, your browser does not support ActiveX controls, or support for ActiveX controls is disabled. "


I am using XP professional, IE 6.02 to access the sharepoint site.


I was hoping that the hot fix KB938888 would fix that issue, but it did not. bulk editing is a nice feature that i would like to use but i have never been able to. The link to export data to Excel works fine.


if anyone has suggestions, thanks in advance
