Passing Textbox Value to ContextKey in AutoCompleteExtender

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


I'm trying to use the contextKey in the AJAX AutoComplete tool but there is a problem with regards to passing the contextKey value to the method located in the web service file.

Let me describe how my web form is organised.

There are two textboxes. One of them has the AutoComplete tool. The user enters a word in Textbox1 (which does not have the AutoComplete tool). Afterwards, when he clicks in TextBox2 (which has the AutoComplete tool) and starts to type, the AutoComplete tool will show him the close matches. Now, the items in the AutoComplete menu are retrieved from a SQL database. The Select command (of the AutoComplete which is in the web service file) returns values based on the the value of TextBox1 in the main forum.

This is the client-code of AutoComplete 1:

<cc1:AutoCompleteExtender ID="AutoCompleteExtender1"

AutoCompleteExtender ContextKey with Session Problem

Make the AutoCompleteExtender more like the Netflix search textbox


I am using the autocompleteextender control in a project I am working on for a client, but I would like to be able to match words in the middle of the data I am searching. Controls such as the search textbox on sites like Netflix do this. For example, if I go to Netflix and search for 'wolfman' I get results like:

The Wolfman

The Real Wolfman

House of the Wolfman

With the extender I would only get results beginning with 'wolfman'. If my stored procedure in my webservice is written to do search the text as I want, nothing shows in the extender (I'm guessing because so many top results don't begin with the entered text). Is there a way to get the autocompleteextender to behave more like this?


Passing values from textbox to labels on another page


I have a form with a combination of dropdownlists and textboxes that I want to be able to show a user as a summary in another page before submitting to a sql server. Page 1 will have a verify button which will then pass the dropdown and text box info to page 2 where end users will be able to either submit the page or cancel the action. What's the best way to pass the values from page 1 to page 2?

Thank you,

SSRS 2008 - Passing parameter into textbox - can't seem to apply formatting to it (date/currency)


I have a report that is displaying a parameter in a textbox inside the report.

Now I right clicked on the textbox, went to properties, and set number formatting to: Date - 01/31/2000

However, when I render the report it does not display the date in that format. It displays it in the way the sproc returns it which is: 5/13/2011 3:08:30 PM

I tried changing the parameter type to TEXT instead of datetime, made no difference.

I am having the same problem with currency. I will return 12345 and it will just display that way in the textbox instead of $12,345.00.

Any suggestions?

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Highlighting Rows with TextBox OnFocus

In another article I explained that how you can make the rows of the GridView control clickable and highlight them when they are clicked. In this article I will explain that how you can highlight the GridView rows when you focus on the TextBox which is contained inside the GridView control.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key

Editable Gridview with Textbox, CheckBox, Radio Button and DropDown List

This is an example of an editable gridview containing different ASP.NET controls. When user wants to edit values in gridview, she/he can use these controls to edit existing values in Gridview Edit Mode.

This is pretty simple compared to jquery. Since we need refer a dll only. we dont want any script for this. we just include that reference into our website.

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?
