FormView KeepInEditMode=true isn't retaining values

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

I have an "Edit Page" in my application. It uses a FormView bound to an EntityDataSource.

I have a handler setup for the FormView OnItemUpdated event. If an exception occurs (such as foreign key constraints or non date vales entered in a date colum, etc.), then I set the "KeepInEditMode=true". This is SUPPOSED to retain the user entered values on all of the text boxes instead of rebinding the FormView to the data again and clearing those text boxes. (Right?)

Well, it isn't working...

I have stepped through the code via the debugger and the "KeepInEditMode" does get set to true, but as soon as the page reloads, the values revert back to the original database values (the data is being rebound).

I should also mention that I am setting "ExceptionHandled" to true. I am doing this because I am handling the Exception by displaying an error in a specific area of the page and if I dont mark it as handled, IE generates an Exception popup.

Any ideas?

Values in user control fields empty when AutoEventWireup=true ?

As a BizTalk developer I'm trying to build a ASP.NET website so some obvious things might be new to me (so please be gentle). I have a web form and I have a user control on it. This user control contains a panel with some user properties that are to be stored in a database. So far nothing fancy. The user control itself contains a panel and is working fine (all code to retrieve and store the values is working). I used the default settings of creating a user control and one of them was AutoEventWireup=true. This works fine because I also have some dropdown boxes (and other fields) that need to be filled with values from the database and that happens in the Page_load event. The panel specifies the 'DefaultButton' which calls a method when clicked to save the values after the user has changed them. On this click the code of the method is called, I confirmed that, but I found out that the values of my controls on the user control (for example the Textbox control) are empty. As a non-ASP.NET developer I couldn't figure out why. So I changed some settings like AutoEventWireup to false. Off course this resulted in my dropdown boxes no longer to be initially filled, but my surprise was big to find out my controls actually contained the values the user typed in. Logically I need both the values and th

Not able to save checkbox values as TRUE on record creation

I have a form I created in InfoPath 2010 on a SharePoint 2010 list. As part of this list, there are 6 yes/no columns.  Each yes/no column I have bound to a different checkbox in the InfoPath form.  In SharePoint, when I view the list and click "add new item", the blank InfoPath form appears, I edit the form and submit it.  All works fine.... EXCEPT the checkboxes.  It seems that the checkboxes always save as FALSE the first time I save a new record. If I save the new record, and then choose to "edit the item", I can set any or all of the checkboxes to true, and it works fine.  But on the initial creation of the record (using InfoPath), the checkboxes always end up being persisted as FALSE. If I create a new record directly in the list (using the datasheet view), I am able to save the yes/no fields as YES, and they persist.  So the problem really does seem to point to the InfoPath form. Any thoughts on how I can persist a TRUE value for these checkboxes when saving for the first time?

Trying to Retain Values in a FormView When Validations fails or the SQL Fails on an Insert


To me this should be much easier, but I can't seem to retain the values that are put in the Insert template upon a validation failure or when the sql fails. This will prevent the user from having to retype everything agin in the event of a failure.

As you can see I am using the Sub Insert_Click and not using an insert through the wizard. so the fields are unbound textboxes on the form. There are 2 dropdowns that provide choices for the other fields.

Any help would be appreciated. I pasted in the code using the text only option becuase the format was getting messed up. I porboably need more background on why the fields are blanking out.



See Code below



Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

Dim con As Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection = Nothing

Dim cmd As Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand = Nothing

Dim dr As Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader = Nothing

FormView + ObjectDataSource - can't find ControlParameter values


I'm trying to use a FormView + ObjectDataSource that uses ControlParameters to do an insert.

I have the following static DAL method which calls my LINQ-to-SQL stored proc:

public static void AddQuestion(string questionText, string expectedAnswer, bool alwaysShow, int interviewTypeID, int skillFamilyID, int questionSubcategoryID, int competencyTypeID)
using(ACITDataContext db = new ACITDataContext())
db.usp_AddQuestion(questionText, expectedAnswer,
alwaysShow, interviewTypeID, skillFamilyID,
questionSubcategoryID, competencyTypeID);
catch (Exception ex)
throw (ex);

And I have this WebForm page (some content removed for brevity):

<asp:FormView ID="frmQuestion" runat="server" DefaultMode="Ins

Compute Values in FormView From Row Data


Here's what I am trying to do:

Inside Form View Want to display the average of a field based from field1/field2


Field 1 = 10

Field 2 = 5

Field 3 would equal 2 (Field 1 / Field 2)

How would I go abaout doing this.  Code currently looks like:

<asp:Label ID="sales_per_qtr" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("total_sales/total_qtrs") %>' />

Using custom bind expression in the formview but it won't let me do this...

All input appreciated.


How to Pass Values Between Web Pages ASP.NET

Use a query string.

Get HTTP POST information from the source page.

The following options are available only when the source and target pages are in the same ASP.NET Web application.

Formview LinqData source not allowing updates


OK, I'm confused.  I've set up a formview with a Linqdata source to allow users to edit records.  When I run it, edit data and submit, it blows up and tells me "Linq datasource6  does not support the Select property when the Delete, Insert or Update operations are enabled."  I googled that warning and saw a couple of posts on this forum saying the problem is the slect statement has to be removed from the Linq data source for it to allow updates. 

But if I remove the select statement then how do I show the user specific info on pageload?   plus I thought the two way databind was an advantge of the datasource control.




JQGrid Loading deleted values



This is quite strange. here is the issue:

Some Info:

1. I'm using a multi-select jqgrid.

2. I have my own delete button to delete multiple orders

The problem:

When i press the delete button on the pager of my jqgrid, the records are deleted from the database but JqGrid shows some records (4-5). On refreshing the grid, correct numbers of records are shown.

Here is the code:

function delorder() {
        var amg = $("#horder").getGridParam('selarrrow');
        var cont = amg.length;
        if (amg.length > 0) {

How to cast integer values as an array of enum values?


Hello all!

I'm working with VS2010 Beta2, ASP.NET and Dynamic Data. I'm using VB but will certainly be happy to receive a C# example if necessary. Laughing

I used a few of Steve's examples (Writing Attributes and Extension Methods for Dynamic Data and Dynamic Data - Hiding Columns in selected PageTemplates) to create a custom property attribute to be applied to a dynamic data column and want it to accept an array of enum values (each value will represent a dynamic data page template where this column should not be displayed).  My new attribute works fine when I hardcode it like this, meaning the HideColumnIn attribute is properly populated with the array of enum values:

<HideColumnIn(PageTemplate.List, PageTemplate.Edit)> _
Public Property My_DD_Column As Object


However, I want to store the values to be used for the HideColumnIn in the DB as integer values that correspond to the

FormView -- Parameters and asp:Table


I've already solved this problem to my satisfaction, I just want to know WHY it works this way.

I have a FormView control bound to an ObjectDataSource.  Let's say our data source is a hypothetical table with three columns:  id, name, age.  Why is it that when I use the <asp:Table> element inside of the FormView, the parameter values are not set, but when I use the standard <table> tag, it works fine?

This seems like a .NET problem to me.  I expect the <asp:Table> element to work in the same way as <table> because they are, for all intents and purposes, the same thing.  Am I missing something?

DropDownList within FormView Error
