Reference control inside an iframe

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

I am trying to reference a control inside a iframe. This should be very simple, but I am constantly getting an error. Either object does not exist or undefined. Then I tried to get a reference to all the objects inside a iframe, but I am getting the same kind of error.

FInally I used
var test = document.frames("framename").document.all;

It returns 0, but iframe contains couple of controls...

Any tips?

Cannot access Label inside Repeater - "Object reference not set..."


I have a button on a page with a Repeater and an ObjectDataSource. To give credit where credit is due, the Repeater's paging functionality is courtesy of ScottGu. (However, I'm using ASP.NET 4.0 and SQL Server 2008, as opposed to ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005.)

Anyway, in the button's click event, I need to access the Text property of a Label that's inside the Repeater because it's used as an input parameter in a stored procedure. I'm getting a NullReferenceException when trying to access the Label's Text property. I have researched this error and have tried a few different solutions (involving FindControl and the Repeater's ItemDataBound event), but I haven't been able to get it to work. Any suggestions, in VB or C#, would be greatly appreciated. The code is below.


<asp:Repeater ID="rptText" runat="server" DataSourceID="tbsDataSource">
<table width="100%" cellspacing="1">
<%-- some rows removed for brevity --%>

Again, Getting control inside datatemplate from code behind

HI, All: This problem comes back to bite me again. I had a similar problem before but I changed the customer control to user control and define the click event in the xaml. But this time I have to stick with the customer control. I searched the internet and there are a lot of examples but in my situation, I still got null object. I have a CUSTOMER control which derives from treeview. The hierachicalDataTemplate for the treeview is following:     <HierarchicalDataTemplate         x:Key="CheckBoxItemTemplate"         ItemsSource="{Binding SubFolder}"         >         <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">             <CheckBox             x:Name="PART_CheckBox"             Focusable="False"             IsChecked="{Binding IsSelected}"             VerticalAlignment="Center"                 &nbs

Problems with a .NET4 Control GAC Reference failing at runtime but fine during debugging

I believe this question is specific to the CLR how ever I will test this in a Forms Application later. I have multiple .Net 4 Targeted WPF Applications that Reference Non Microsoft .NET 4 WPF Controls that I can confirm are in the GAC. Everything Debugs Great (Noting that none of the references are copied to the output directory) and Install's well using a Setup Package and manually installing has the same effect even after a reboot. The problem is the application will not start even as an administrator as it does not find the Control References in the GAC. This also happens if I try to start the application manually in the visual studio output Directory. I can also confirm that opening the application in reflector that reflector is able to correctly find the references. Finally if I copy the controls (.dll's) to the location of the application everything runs as expected for all the above issues.   My question here is why is my application not able to load the .NET 4 controls from the GAC? Also note that everything uses a Strong Name.

Get value of a label control inside the DetailsView

Hi everyone, I have a databound label control (i.e. Label 3) inside an Item Template that's in a DetailsView control. I just need to get the value of those label and compare it to some string. I tried several ways (i.e. Find control, DetailsView.Row) but nothing seems to work. I don't know if I'm using the FindControl methos correctly or if I need to access the Row first and do the findcontrol method.  Protected Sub DetailsView4_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DetailsView4.DataBound 'If (DetailsView4.Rows(2).Cells(1).ToString = "Regular") Then 'Label3.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Azure 'End If 'Dim StatusQualifierContainer As Label 'Dim S As String 'StatusQualifierContainer = DetailsView4.FindControl(Label3.Text) 'S = StatusQualifierContainer.Text 'If S = "Regular" Then 'Label5.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua 'End If 'Dim C As Label = DetailsView4.FindControl("Label3") 'If C.Text = "Regular" Then 'Label3.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.DarkBlue 'End If 'Dim headerRow As DetailsViewRow = DetailsView4.HeaderRow 'Dim lblText As Label = CType(headerRow.FindControl("Label3"), Label)

User control or sub-form inside tab-pages? Best practice?

I've got a Windows Forms application with numerous tab-pages within a tab-control. Each tab-page is a diffirent user entry form with different controls of varying types. As the application is fairly large it is important that more than one developer can work on it simultaneously. Thus we decided to create a form for each tab so that different developers could work on different forms at the same time without overwriting each other's code. Each of these "sub-forms" are then assigned its relevant container tab-page as its parent. This works well but I was wondering if this is good practice or not, after another colleague commented that we are making forms look like user controls and that we should rather be creating a user control for each tab. I've converted two of the forms to user controls with relative ease and it does work nicely as well but with one draw back. On the main parent form, e.g. frmMain, where the tab control lives, there is one single button the clear the current display. When you click "Clear display" it clears various others items displayed on the main from, finds the current selected tab and clears its contents. The latter is easy to do with sub forms as I can simply close and dispose the sub form inside the selected tab, and load a new instance. I don't have to write custom logic to go and reset/clear each control on that form. Thi

Does the ReportViewer control print button work inside of a modal MSIE window?

I am getting the following two error messages when using the new ReportViewer v10 control after pressing the toolbar print button. I am only seeing this error inside of a modal popup window in MSIE.
