I have - what might look like an obvious question - for me it is a headache.

How to Access Parent Page (.aspx) control (IDs) from its child User Control (.ascx)

passing a primary key value from a parent to a child viewmodel

I have a view (parent), a user control (child), and each have their own viewmodels. I need to tell the user control's view model what the parent's viewmodel primary key (PK) is. I am creating an instance of the child's viewmodel in the parent viewmodel, but I can't seem to get the child viewmodel to bind to the parent's PK value. Parent viewmodel:         private void Initialize()         {    CurrentParent currentParent;        // set the datacontext of the parent             if (NavigationActions.DataContext != null)             {                 CurrentParent = (ParentDto)NavigationActions.DataContext;             }             else             {                 CurrentParent = new ParentDto();             }        // create an instance of the child's view

SSIS Parent/Child Package variable passing



I have having trouble getting my hands around how to retrieve variables from a parent package.  I read about the Environment variables and Configuration File at the parent package level and the Parent Package variable at the child level.

Here are my questions:

1.  Can you only store/retrieve 1 variable in a config file at a time?

2.  Does the child package have to define the variables and if so, do they have to be the same names as the parent package?

This seems so more more complex then the DTS2000 way of passing variables to and from packages.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

GridView Parent Child View with JQuery Effects

I was just checked how to add some more cool effects to the GridView control using JQuery. In this post I will display parent-child data in the GridView control with some help of the wonderful JQuery library.

Let's first populate the GridView control.

Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?
