Problem with Dynamic Controls

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


I have a custom user control that contains within it a repeater control. Inside this repeater I programmatically add another custom user control, which contains a text box and a custom validator. This final custom user control can be added any number of times depending on the application's logic. All of this is part of a wizard step.

When the user completes the step, if any of the data added to the text boxes is incorrect the validator gets fired on post back. However, because I can have any number of these controls added to the repeater, the user has to scroll down to see any of the incorrectly completed boxes.

Due to the controls being added dynamically it is not possible to use a validation summary control - I have tried!!! Therefore, is there away I can use JavaScript to position a cursor or to jump to each incorrectly completed textbox without the user needing to scroll down the page? For example, if there are 10 textboxes, and textboxes 8 and 9 have numbers inside them inside strings, then the JavaScript should jump textbox 9.

Need help regarding C# / AJAX Dynamic Controls creation


radiobuttons is assigned before page init.. 

public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
//Assign values as a specific Dynamic WebControl Creation.
List<RadioButton> radioButtons = new List<RadioButton>();
List<CheckBox> checkBoxes = new List<CheckBox>();

Then I created a class that would dynamically create a table containing the available flights depending on session.. (See CallPageLoad())

The placeholder and button is inside the UpdatePanel...

on the button inside the update panel, (btnSelect)

i have this code which works... 

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Label1.Text = Convert.ToString(radioButtons.Count);

It detects the number of radiobuttons that were dynamically created...

But when I use the following code inside the BtnSelectClick event...

//PLS HELP.......
foreach (RadioButton button in radioButtons)
if (button.Checked == true)
Label1.Text = "You select... " + button;



It does not work even though t

Problem with Dynamic Button


Hi friends,

I am trying to make a page inspired from http://login.qlikview.com/help.aspx

here I have made a dropdownlist and on clicking I am able to dynamically add the textboxes and radio buttons using placeholders. My problem is I am not able to use a dynamic number of submit buttons. In the page (link above) I need to make the submit button available for two choices and invisible for one.  But the option dynamicbutton is not available alike dynamicTextboxes etc. What could I do? Is there any other way I could figure out to implement this.

Thanking you in advance,


Problem with list controls and update progress template



I have an update panel that surrounds a wizard control which I use in conjunction with a update progress control. Now my update progress control works perfectly, with my animated gif and div tag that lays over my wizard control when the user goes from step to step. However, there is a problem that I am struggling to solve. A number of my steps use controls like list boxes, and when the update progress control fires, the list control is not laying underneath my div an animated gif no matter how high a make my css z-index on the div.

Does anyone have a way of solving this?

ASP.NET 4.0 charts controls problem

Hi All, I have a very weird problem. I have used asp:chart control to display chart on my home page. The home page is accessible to both, logged in and anonymous users. When I log in and access the home page, I can see the chart image. The problem is, when an anonymous user tries to access the page, the chart image is not rendered. I checked the folder and the image does get created but it does not get rendered. I have tried number of things, assigned full rights to the folders, tried to save the file in both, file and session. But none of them work. If anyone has come across such problem and know of a solution then please do let me know asap. Thank you in advance. -VT

Problem with user controls and the toolbox

Im building a control library, its just a library that builds to a dll with a bunch of user controls. But So far I can only get "user controls" to be loaded into the toolbox in a separate project. Many on my user controls need only be derived from a specific control and I often find using a user control is unnecessary for the control. So the question is, how can I get a control that is not derived from the user control class, to show in the toolbox, in a separate project? Another thing I would like to decorate my controls with an icon for the toolbox. I tried [ToolboxBitmap("Filename")] at the top of the class but it did not work for me.AbleOpus.ath.cx

Validation on detailsview that contains both dynamic and standard controls?

I have a form that, originally, contained only dynamic controls. Validation worked perfectly, all in one spot.Today I changed three of the controls to cascading dropdown lists, two of them being required fields.After adding a RequiredFieldValidator for the two required fields, it's as though I have two separate validation events:1. Dynamic field validation - any errors show up in validation summary, and after all are resolved, no longer appear2. Required field validation - do not appear in validation summary until after all dynamic fields are validatedA user could press submit, and be alerted of one or more validation errors from the dynamic fields. Then, after resolving all those, the user would THEN see the RequiredFieldValidator messages in the validation summary. That would be understandably frustrating.Aside from using non-dynamic validation & RequiredFieldValidator for each field ... is there any way to have one validation sequence?Hope this makes sense.Thank you!

JQuery with dynamic ASP.NET controls (DropDownList)

I am mixing JQuery with ASP.NET webforms.  Adding dynamic controls and accessing the selected values with JQuery works differently under different circumstances and I am trying to establish the difference. Why does Senario 1 work in debug mode but not without breakpoints?  What does databinding to a GridView do that adding DropDownList controls to a asp:panel does not? Is there some sort of DOM registration going on in DataBind? All senarios use the same JQuery: var ddlCollection = $("select[name$='ddlDynamicDropDown']") Senario 1: Breakpoints on each line (Success) Add DropDownList controls to a asp:panel dynamically in the PageLoad method (Does the page lifecycle matter? OnLoad method instead?). Run the code Select values and click on a button firing a JavaScript function (Break in Debug) Break in JavaScript file Access the dropdowns and their selected values successfully Senario 2:  Run the Senario 1 code without breakpoints (Fails to locate the ddlCollection) Senario 3: Use a GridView (Success) Add values to populate the DropDownList controls to a Generic List. Bind the values to a GridView control containing the DropDownList controls Run the code Select values and click on a button firing a JavaScript function Use JQuery to Access the dropdowns and their selected values successfully.  

Problem registering client side script to interact with AJAX controls

Im using some animationExtenders in my project. The thing is, the objects to be animated are created programmatically, hence i need to also build programmatically the javascript code that will interact with them.It runs properly but, when i interact with these animated controls and the javascript functions are supposed to get to work, i keep getting the usual run-time error saying that the javascript functions are not defined. But, if i check the final html code generated, i can see how all the controls i built programmatically are there ,as well as the script.Tried both RegisterStartupScript and RegisterClientScriptBlock, no luck.Any advice? thanks in advance

Viewstate dynamic controls in wizard

Hello group, I have a question about retrieving the values from dynamic created controls. I'am using an wizard witch collects it data based on the steps in the wizard. At a certain wizard step i generate dropdownlists and textboxes depending on some records from a database. At this point no problem, the controls are created perfect. When i press the next button on the wizard i read out the eventarg e.currentstepindex, iterate throug the gridview witch is displaying the controls and try to find the control with "findcontrol" function.   The controls are "nothing" and i cant access them. THe source code of the page lets me show that the controls are there and that they have the assigned ID's. I investigated on google what the problem could be. I has to do with the viewstate and i have to regenerate the controls on page_load. This is something i don't understand.   Could somebody please help me with this?   Thank in advance, René 

TemplateBinding for Dynamic Controls

I create a templated RadioButton at run time. After initializing the templated RadioButton, I set the DataContext and Tag property and then add this button in a StackPanel. The problem is that the template binding does not work. below is the XAML and the code behind. All this work if I assign values to these properties in XAML. Any ideas? Code: TemplatedRadioButton commandButton = new TemplatedRadioButton(); commandButton.DataContext = "bla"; // Some txt that I will. commandButton.Tag = MyImage; // This is the ImageIcon that I create at run time too. MyStackPanel.Children.Add(commandButton); XAML: <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type RadioButton}">  <Grid SnapsToDevicePixels="true">   <Border>    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Margin="0 6 0 0" HorizontalAlignment="Right">     <Border x:Name="Bd" BorderThickness="0 2 0 0" CornerRadius="8" BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" Height="68" Width="80">      <Grid Margin="0 8 0 1">       <Grid.RowDefinitions>        <RowDefinition Height="4*"/>        <Row
