Find RadioButton on nested MasterPage

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello Everyone

I´m having a little trouble finding a radiobutton on a nested masterpage.

I tried this code.

 //Principal principal = (Principal)this.Page.Master;
            //Secundaria segunda = (Secundaria)principal.Master;
            //RadioButton myRadio = (RadioButton)segunda.FindControl("radioBtn1");

Principal principal = (Principal)this.Page.Master;

Secundaria segunda = (Secundaria)principal.Master;

 RadioButton myRadio = (RadioButton)segunda.FindControl("radioBtn1");

I´ve tried other ways to do it but I always get the message saying that it can´t find ans instance of the object.

Does anyone have a solution for this?   

I have A Main master Page a NestedMasterPage inheriting from that and a web form inheriting from the NestedMasterPAge

How to find specific nested object type in Gridview

Dears, I have a gridview with a nested placeholder in each rows. I nested some checkboxes in each placeholders in each rows dynamically, so their ServerIDs are not the same (I dont want to use nested gridview). at the end in a button event I want to count checked checkboxes in gridview while I can not use findcontrol() method in each rows to find checkboxes due to their different ServerIDs. How can I do this?

Regex to find nested list items

Hi everyone,

I am trying to write a regex parser that will extract links from some html that is generated within our services. Now, extracting items in html I am able to do, but I have n idea how to parse the links from the following, and keep the structure, e.g with the following menu

<ul id="menu">

What I have tried is

<ul id=\"menu\"[^>]*>(.*)</ul>

Now, this does get me the whole menu, but then If I do:


I can get the menu items, BUT, I lose the structure.

So I thought I would be able to extract the LI that contain the UL inside it, but the problem is that using the regex above to extract that LI, I retrieve the following:


Can anyone suggest a way that I can use regex to retrieve this keeping the same structure? or another way of processing these menus and being able to record the structure?

RadioButton inside GridView, How to get it work as normal

Did you tried before to drag a RadioButton control inside a Gridivew templatefield, and then you attempt to select these RadioButtons , you will notice that the behavior of RadioButton control will be changed and it will work just like the behavior of checkbox control! the user will be able to select more than one radiobutton in the grid!

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers in asp.net

The RadioButtonList. Very handy for inviting users to select just one item from a list although because of the screen real estate it takes up, used less and less in favour of the DropDownList. In plain HTML, the browser knows to enforce the unique selected value amongst a list of radio buttons because they all have the same value for their name attributes.

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers

(In which AJAX-enhanced CheckBoxes become more useful than RadioButtons but inheritance saves the day, and a simple RadioButton-derived control establishes the purpose of a control's naming container)

The radiobutton control

The and Controls
In HTML, radio buttons are used when we need to make multiple sets of choices available, but we want the user to select only one of them. If they click on a second selection after making a first, the first selection is removed and replaced by the second. Radio buttons are implemented in HTML using the tag, and setting the type attribute to radio. Every radio button on the page needs to have its own tag. Each radio button within a particular group must have the same name attribute.

Binding Nested Listviews in MVC ViewPage


I am a longtime .NET developer but for big applications and services.  This is my first asp.net project and I have chosen MVC.   I have a need for nesting a ListView within a ListView.  In this simple catalog app, I have EF 4 Entities that are Categories, SubCategories, ItemTypes, and Items.

My goal is to display a 5 column layout of SubCategories with their ItemTypes below them in a ViewPage.  I did just fine with it done out in C# as server directives such as:

    var subcats = Model.SubCategory.ToArray();
    var nrSubCats = subcats.Count();
    var rows = (nrSubCats/5) + (((nrSubCats % 5) > 0) ? 1 : 0);
    for (var row = 0; row < rows; row++)
    { %>
        <div style="width: 100%; float: left; clear: right;">
        var start = row * 5;
        for (var i = start; (i < start + 5) && (i < nrSubCats); i++)
        var subcat = subcats[i];
            <div style="float: left; clear: right; width: 20%; margin-left: 5;">
                <h2> <%:subcat.Name%></h2>
                    foreach (var its in subcat.ItemType)

MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

Nested Tracers - is there a way to only log the outer trace?



I have some nested tracers. The outer one has a category of 'PageTrace' and the inner ones have categories of 'DBTrace'. When I set the outer category source to 'All' I get both traces. When I switch on the inner trace, I just get the inner trace.

So, my question: is there any way to just log the outer trace events, i.e. the Page Traces.




Using loginName to find ADInfo from an outside class



I wrote a class to pull adinfo and for the life of me I can't seem to figure

out why it says "Invalid Login Name" no matter what I type in. If I leave

it blank it seems to work properly but it doesn't seem to be actually searching

the AD. I'll drop the whole class here, it's being initiated by a button click

on an outside form.


Thanks in Advance for any help Offered,

LDAP nested groups filter


Hi all,

In my organization we use nested groups.

For a particular usage, we have a group (let's assume that the group name "kuku"), and the names of all the nested groups under it contains "kuku" as well.

We may assume that no other group in the LDAP has "kuku" in the name.

I need to create a filter which will return all the users which belong to one of the "kuku"s group.

Obviously, using this filter will bring only the head kukus

(&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=kuku,cn=.rest of the group DN.))

How can I use wild card to fetch all users which belong to any kuku?

For example: (&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=.*kuku.*))



LDAP - Can't find server


Hey people,

I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.

I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)

I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...

If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.
