Cannot Get FormView to Fire DeleteCommand

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Have been trying this for three days, kersmacking my head against it with no success.  Can anyone see why this FormView will not fire a DeleteCommand?

<asp:FormView ID="fvPmtDetails"
 <h4>Edit Existing Payment</h4>
  <asp:HiddenField ID="hdnPaymentID" runat="server" Value='<%#Bind("PaymentID") %>' />
    <mp:SiteLabel id="lblPaymentDate" runat="server" ForControl="dpPaymentDate" CssClass="settinglabel" ConfigKey="dpPaymentDate" ResourceFile="AdManagerResources" />
    <mp:DatePickerControl ID="dpPaymentDate" runat="server" ShowTime="False"  CssClass="forminput" Text='<%# Bind("PaymentDate","{0:MM/dd/yyyy}") %>' />
    <mp:SiteLabel id="lblPaymentType" runat="server" ForControl="txtPmtType" CssClass="settinglabel" ConfigKey="txtPmtTyp

FormView: Button requires 2 click to fire the event



I have a modal formview with insertitemtemplate.
I have to click the insert button twice to fire the event.

But if I do not insert any values, only one click is required and the validationgroup fires.
But if I enter all valid values, I need to click twice and the event does not fire during the
first click. But I need CausesValidation = false because to required field validators.

How to avoid two clicks to fire the event if the formview is valid

Any input on how to handle this is greatly appreciated.


 protected void FormViewInsertApplication_ItemCommand(object sender, FormViewCommandEventArgs e)
        if (e.CommandName == "InsertApp")
            // Must explicitly cause validation because update button causevalidation is set to false   
            if (!Page.IsValid)
             if (!doValidate()) { return; }

<asp:FormView id="FormViewInsertApplication">
       <asp:Button ID="btnInsert" runat="server" Text="Insert" CommandName="InsertApp"   	   		                         

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.




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

Help with displaying formview based on dropdownlist


I have a formview1 with a dropdownlist1 in the insert template. Based on the value of that dropdownlist I would like to display a second formview on the same page in insert mode so that I can write data to two different tables.

How can I accomplish this?

Is this the best way to do it?



FormView KeepInEditMode=true isn't retaining values


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?

FormView Text Field Being Set by A Drop Down List


Hello, I have a FormView which is used to insert a record into a database.  Outside of this formview i have a drop down list, I want to grab the value from that drop down list and set one of the text fields within the formview to it's currently selected value.  I've tried the following code, but the dynamic categorytextbox line is what seems to not be working.

                    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCategory" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"

EventReceiver does not fire for other users than Administrator


Hi all

My code adds a EventReceiver to some SPLists. When I log into Sharepoint as Administrator, then the EventReciever is fired.

When i log in as an other user, it does nothing.


My current code is this:

string assm = "Minimizer, Version=" + FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(Root.Res.DLL).FileVersion + ", Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=d2d19387a15c363f";
          string cls = "MinimizerPlugin.Minimizer";
          l.EventReceivers.Add(SPEventReceiverType.ItemUpdated, assm, cls);
          l.EventReceivers.Add(SPEventReceiverType.ItemAdded, assm, cls);

What can I do to register this EventReceiver to all users?

Thanks for your help!!

Formview + EditItemTemplate + Bind + PageLoad + Prerender = Confused


I am working with a formview edititemtemplate.  Currently in my page load, i have some stuff that would show or hide certain panels based on dropdownlist values.  These dropdown values get binded during page load.  I need to be able to change the values/dropdowns, without rebinding the old data, and updating the visibility of the panels based on predefined rules.

I have experimented with putting my formview.databind() in page load if isnotpostback, in prerender, in prerender if isnotpostback.   I have tried my rules (ex if ddlState.selectedvalue = "DE" then pnlDelaware.visible = "true") in the page load, and the page render.   I'm just not sure how to get the stars aligned here.

The closest i have come is having the databind in the pageload if notispostback, and the rules in the prerender.   However I get an error "dropdownlist has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.


CheckBoxList embedded in FormView InsertItemTemplate problem


I've searched hi/lo and found many similar posts but those answers aren't working for me.

I've got a FormView, in an UpdatePanel.  In the FormView's EditItemTemplate and InsertItemTemplate I'm using both a CheckBox and a CheckBoxList.  To present the data I databind in the code behind, (but then have to iterate to mark selected).  There I cast the sender as CheckBoxList in the OnPreRender event and use that object. 

The problem is retrieval.  I'm trying to access the user's entries when they submit by using the cast.  It is working fine for the CheckBox, but for the CheckBoxList the resulting checkboxlist object doesn't have any items. 

Here, both active and roles are created (they're not 'null') and active has the expected 'name' and 'selected' values, but roles has an item count = 0 and the for loop isn't entered.


            CheckBox active = ((CheckBox)Emp_Form.FindControl("cbActive"));

            CheckBoxList roles = (CheckBoxList)Emp_Form.FindControl("UsrRoles");

            foreach (ListItem role in roles.Items)
                // do stuff


Is there another way to cast a checkboxlist?  Any help would b
