listview's emptydatatemplate not showing

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a datasource that returns a bunch of records, but in the listview's itemdatabound, I check each row, and set it to 'visible=false' if it shouldn't show. So, when this happens to every record, nothing shows, but the 'emptydatatemplate' for the listview doesn't take over.  How can I make it work?

how to navigate from EmptyDataTemplate to other templates in ListView


All the writeups on ListView's EmptyDataTemplate say that it's for displaying the fact that no data records exist, which is logical; but the bad thing is that I've found nothing as a follow-up. In other words, I haven't been able to find any "now what?" once you (as the site user) find that there aren't any data records. I am led to then ask what the real purpose of the EmptyDataTemplate is if you can't do anything with it.

I added a button called "Add Your Photo" on the EmptyDataTemplate, which activates a ModalPopupExtender with an AsyncFileUpload. All this works fine in terms of uploading the file but nothing happens after that. I wonder if I should be starting instead in the InsertItemTemplate.

So, I need to know how to accomplish a couple of options: I need to start out in either the InsertItemTemplate or the EmptyDataTemplate. If I do the latter, I will need to know how to get from there to the ItemTemplate so the rendering can be displayed.

What code should I use to display the data--that is, how do I move from the EmptyDataTemplate to the ItemTemplate?

ListView items added but not showing up.


This is a windows form.

I have a list view and have added items to it, but they are not showing up.

The code seems to run in debugging mode but still i do not see any items.

The listview is in details mode.

      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("bb");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("cc");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("dd");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("ee");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("ff");

Any ideas?

Thank you


Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

WPF Tutorial - Using The ListView, Part 1

Many of the controls in WPF have a downright dizzying array of capabilities and features, due in large part to the composibility of all the components. The ListView control is a great example of this - the possibilities are almost endless. This series of tutorials on the ListView will hopefully make the space of possible options seem not quite as daunting

How to listen to events within a listview



I've got a listview and I've put a button control in one of the columns, I'm trying to figure out how I have listen to the button click within a certain row, but can't see the button in the dropdown for the IDs I can generate events for.

I'd like to get the primary key of the row that's been clicked on and then run a sql statement against it.

Any help would be appreciated.

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

Trouble with UpdateProgress showing...


Recently I converted a project to VS.NET2010 and ASP.NET 4.0 (not convinced this is the problem, but regardless this is when the problem began) and now I am having an issue with an AJAX UpdateProgress showing. Here is the abrriviated code:

   <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanelPostPageLoad" runat="server">
         <asp:Timer ID="tmrPostPageLoad" Enabled="false" Interval="100" OnTick="PostPageLoad_LoadData"
         <asp:Timer ID="tmrPostPageLoadPt2" Enabled="false" Interval="1" OnTick="PostPageLoad_LoadDataPt2"
         <%--Placing the UpdateProgress inside the UpdatePanel targeted--%>
         <asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgressPostPageLoad" runat="server" DisplayAfter="0" AssociatedUpdatePanelID="UpdatePanelPostPageLoad">
                       Updating blah blah....


DAL Dataset showing all the column


I follow the tutorial and create DAL with Dataset. I created a Table Adapter with many column, but when i Call a simple Get for 2 column only. The system display 2 column and the rest column with empty data.

My question is that will this affect the performance? because i only need 2 column.

example: Table with 40 column define in Dataset in DAL. I have GetMember from Dataset with 40 column, some request only 1 column (with 39 empty), some request 22 column (with 18 empty column). Will this affact the performance?

Should i create a seperate DatasetAllColumn, Dataset1Column, Dataset22Column ?? so system only return exact column i need. and hofully the performance is optimized to it best.

GridView EmptyDataTemplate and FindControl Method


I have 2 textboxes, a dropdownlist and a button in the EmptyDataTemplate of a GridView control and when I click the button I want to get the text from the text boxes and DropDownList put it in the QueryString of a URL i redirect to, but I can't work out why the FindControl method cannot find the controls.  I am using the following code:

Dim ddlNumPpl As DropDownList = GridView1.FindControl("ddlNumPpl")

I get an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error though when I try to refer to the SelectedValue property of it though.  I would be very grateful if someone could let me know why the FindControl method can't find the control and what I should do to rectify it.

Many Thanks (in advance),


Programmatically Simulating the ListView's ItemCommand Event


I have a User Control that contains a ListView.  In the user control's code is this event handler:

    protected void listView1_ItemCommand(object source, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
      Button_ClickHandler(source, e);

What's occurring is that I'm explicitly firing an event so that the parent web page can monitor this and take appropriate actions.  Thus when the user clicks on a different ListViewItem it triggers the population of associated data elsewhere on the web page.

This all works fine except for one thing: When I first load the control I'm pre-setting the first ListViewItem.  Unfortunately, just setting the ListView's SelectedIndex = 0 doesn't fire the aforementioned event handler.

So I started investigating how to call "listView1_ItemCommand" but couldn't figure out how to instantiate the "e" parameter.

Any ideas of how to resolve this?


Dynamic Data Entities Modal GridViewPager not showing


I am using the ModalEF template, converted to a web application.

The GridViewPager is not showing up, though everything else works fine (filters, updates, etc).

I have tried several things in the last two weeks, to no avail.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The GridViewPager.ascx.cs Page_Load fires, but the Page_PreRender does not.

Dropdownlist in ListView


I have a transaction table with a field called product. There is a limited number of choices for product so I also have a product table. I am showing the transactions in a ListView with a dropdownlist for Product. The field Product can be blank (all works well then). The user can leave the field blank or they can choose from the dropdownlist. I am running into a problem with the dropdownlist in the Edit Template. No matter what the product is in the transaction file, I get a page error of "ddlEditProduct has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items". I have verified the product does exist in the product table.

My markup is:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlEditProduct" runat="server"
SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Product") %>' >
<asp:ListItem Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>

Manually coding controls such as gridview, listview, repeater, etc.


using vs2010 and .net 4

In my project I have a separate DAL built from class files that I'd like to use to store my code for CRUD operations against my database.

I'm having a hard time finding examples of how to code server controls like the gridview, listview, repeater etc., for CRUD operations manually, i.e., without a datasource control of some flavor.

I don't have any problem manually coding the referenced controls to get my data, but I do have problems when it comes to coding them to perform CRUD operations unless I use a datasource control. When I use the datasource controls CRUD operations seem to automagically appear out of nowhere after they're configured.

Can someone point me to some samples somewhere? Have I missed a section at MSDN?


memberships web part not showing memberships


Hi all,

We are using MOSS 2010.

The My Sites area offers a web part called "My Memberships" (memberships.dwp).
I have copied this to our portal site collection and am using it on the homepage.

After doing user profile imports and full search crawls the web part however is not correctly showing user memberships.
Sometimes it shows all, sometimes it shows a few, sometimes it shows none.

Can anyone please advise?
