jquery datepicker not popping up in Gridview Edit Template textbox


I have a gridview that I can't for the life of me get the datepicker calender to pop up for.  I've been using the datepicker for months very successfully for a variety of textboxes on the page and inside of formviews but this is the first time I've tried using with gridview.  I didn't expect any issues however can't seem to find anything to work.  I have searched the forums for 2 days and attempted any suggestions found within the solutions to no avail.  I've tried using the CSS to link the datepicker but everything stopped working when I changed the code and my page which uses a css style already got all distorted looking.  Please help!

Here is my gridview (only included a part b/c it is large and am only having problem with the datepicker for the date completed text box)

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewCompleted" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
        AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="#CCCCCC" BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="Solid"
        BorderWidth="3px" CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="job_id" DataSourceID="SourceJobProjectCompleted"
        ForeColor="Black" CellSpacing="2">

Value into Textbox of GridView Edit

Hi there, I am not sure this can be done, and if not I am looking for an alternative. Before I start I am using VB.Net and ASP.Net.What I would like to do, is when the edit button is pressed on a Gridview row, I want the TextBox under the ClockOut column, to automatically have the selected value of a dropdown list at the top of the page. Basically so a list of users times will come up in the grid view, and as a fast way to insert a clock out time, the user will have to change the drop down list at the top of the ASP.Net page to the clock out time they want, then when pressing Edit on the row, the time from the Dropdown list will be in the ClockOut textbox, and pressing update will post this. Any help will be great! Thanks, Hope it can be done.

Accessing a row's dropdownlist values AFTER the gridview control is in Edit mode

Hello, I have a gridview control. When it goes into Edit mode, there are 3 dropdownlists in one cell that are populated by separate stored procedures during the RowDataBound event. The 1st dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 2nd dropdownlist is populated with. The 2nd dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 3rd dropdownlist is populated with. Everything works fine when the row is first put into Edit mode. While I'm in Edit mode and I change the selection in the 1st dropdownlist, how do I access the control so I can feed this new parameter to the 2nd dropdownlist? I have the first 2 dropdownlists set for AutoPostBack so that the Page_Load event is fired when the user changes a value. I know how to get access to these controls via the FindControl method when the row is being databound but how do I find the control during the Page_Load event? Thanks for any help!!!   Penny  

Gridview edit mode - What event does enter key call?

I have sort of a very specific problem.  I have a gridview with a few different template columns and a commandfield with the standard "edit" link.  There is no sqldatasource associated with it at all.  In the code, I pull some data from an sql database into a datatable and set the gridview's datasource to be the datatable.This all works fine.  When I hit the "edit" button, the standard textbox shows up where it needs to so that I can edit the data.  The problem is the updating portion.  I have programatically removed the "update" button and left the "cancel" button for design reasons. I want the user to be able to hit "enter" in order to update the data in the data table.  Then, when they're ready, they can click a submit button which will extract the data from the datatable and update the database.I'm having trouble with this 'enter key' business.  When you edit the data and hit "enter" while in edit mode, the page posts back, and the previous values are placed in the gridview.  What event was just  called?  I need a way to take what the user put in and place it in my datatable.  What are my options?Thank you. 

Populate textbox in FormView Control in Edit Mode with querystring

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong here. I am simply trying to get a querystring value and pass it to a textbox in a formview with the default view set to edit mode.     Protected Sub fv_Detach_Engine_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles fv_Detach_Engine.DataBound        If fv_Detach_Engine.CurrentMode = FormViewMode.Edit Then            Dim tbx_IDProfileAccount As TextBox = TryCast(fv_Detach_Engine.FindControl("tbx_IDProfileAccount"), TextBox)            If tbx_IDProfileAccount Is Nothing Then                tbx_IDProfileAccount.Text = Request.QueryString("IDProfileAccount")            End If        End If    End Sub  

Put outer-gridview in non-Edit mode when user edits inner-Gridview

using vb.net/asp.net 2005.(sorry last post I had the grids reversed, what I meant to say is this:I have an outer gridview I'll called "Outer" and an inner-gridview inside that I'll call "inner".There are times when the user will put Outer into edit mode and then put Inner into edit mode and change a value in Inner.  The user is not supposed to be able to do that.So when the user wants to edit Inner I need to change the edit mode of Outer so that Outer is Not editable.   EX: I want to do something like this but not sure in which event of outer to do it:'event fired when user puts inner gridview into edit mode Protected Sub Inner_RowEditing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewEditEventArgs) Handles Inner.RowEditing 'put outer gridview into non-edit mode Outer.EditIndex = -1 End Sub Does anyone know how to do this, is this the right event?  Also I assume I have to rebind the gridview?thanks,MC

GridView: Money-datatype in Edit-Item-Textbox


I have several fields in my GridView which are editable by the user (after klicking on "edit") and are displayed in the format XX,XX by default (because of "{0:c}"). The fields are converted to TemplateFields because I added Validators into the GridView.

This fields are read from a sql database where they are defined as the type "money".

My problem is when the user klicks the edit-button the format changes from XX,XX to XX,XXXX so the user is forced to keep this format when he edites the data.

htmlencode="false" and DataFormatString="{0:c}" doesn't work.

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Entgelt" SortExpression="Entgelt">
                                 <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Entgelt") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                                 <asp:CompareValidator ID="CompareValidator1" runat="server" 

Can't retrieve value from gridview row in edit mode



I have a grid view. When I click edit, the OnRowCommand fires and the row goes into edit state. Label becomes a TextBox. I then attempt to alter this value in some way and click update. This again fires the OnRowCommand event. The problem is, when I attempt to capture the new value, it instead just shows the original value.

In my grid view I have:


<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Start Name">





GridView RowDataBound and Edit mode


I have a gridview and a template column:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Active">
                            <asp:CheckBox ID="chkbxActive" runat="server" Checked ='<%# Bind("Active") %>'  />
                            <asp:Label ID="lblActive" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Active") %>'></asp:Label>

Variable column name in GridView edit mode



I have implemented globalization in my website by using Global Resources. I thought of implementing it not only on controls but in database fields. So for some columns which would be single columns in normal conditions, I considered multiple columns for different culture. For example if there was a [Title] column, I replaced it with [Title-en-US], [Title-en-GB], [Title-es-ES] and etc.

I have a web page with a GridView control that displays the content of that table. In a normal case (without globalizing),  I would have a TemplateField in the GridView like this:

                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Title" SortExpression="Title">
                                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("myTable.Title") %>'></asp:Label>
                                <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AppendDataBoundItems="true" DataSourceID="myDataSource"
                                    DataTextField="Title" DataValueField="XID" SelectedValue=&#

Want to cancel edit mode of gridview in the code.


I have several places where I have a gridview and dataview set, and when I hit an edit button on the gridview it opens up the dataview.  

When I hit a cancel button fom the dataview I have this code that returns mew to the gridview:

        dvwUser.Visible = false;
        gvwUserList.Enabled = true;
        gvwUserList.Visible = true;


        dvwUser.Visible = false;


Inplace Edit in GridView

In this article I am presenting a different way to look at EditItemTemplate, using which user navigation for editing is reduced and . it looks very different (see screeen shots) then regular implementation of GridView.

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.

Edit GridView Individual Cells in ASP.NET

The ASP.NET GridView allows for a row of data to be edited by setting the EditIndex property of the GridView, placing the entire row in edit mode.

You may not want the entire row in edit mode if you are using DropDownList controls for several columns in the EditItemTemplate. If each DropDownList has many options then loading them all at once may result in a sluggish page. Also, if your data structure is more like a 2 dimensional array rather than a set of rows, you may want to edit each cell individually.

Here I will demonstrate how to achieve this and also how to deal with event validation without disabling it.

ASP.Net Gridview Edit Update Cancel Commands

In ASP.Net 2.0, GridView Control also provides the functionality to edit and update the data retrieved from the database using CommandField template. You can cancel the action using Cancel Command of the CommandField. GridView consists of events that can be used to perform the actions like edit, update and cancel upon the Data items displayed in the ASP.Net GridView Data Control.

Edit Individual GridView Cells in ASP.NET

The ASP.NET GridView allows for a row of data to be edited by setting the EditIndex property of the GridView, placing the entire row in edit mode.

You may not want the entire row in edit mode if you are using DropDownList controls for several columns in the EditItemTemplate. If each DropDownList has many options, then loading them all at once may result in a sluggish page. Also, if your data structure is more like a 2 dimensional array rather than a set of rows, you may want to edit each cell individually.
