Listview WebPart Selectedview problem

We have a problem with the Listview WebPart on our current project.Situation:We are building custom sitedefinitions for a portal site. In these site definition we add our webpart/features that have to be deployed with this sitedefinition.In that defintion (ONET.xml) we add a ListViewWebPart on the page. <View List="Whiteboard" BaseViewID="3" WebPartZoneID="Left" WebPartOrder="2"    Type="108" /> Sofar everything is going fine, we generate our webs with the definition and the webpart renders like it should on the page.We then add an item in the list (Discussion list). Again sofar everything fine. when we then try to click on the item to view it in the webpart the item seems to magically disappear from within the webpart. However the items stays in the list so it's not like it gets deleted.After some searching we found out that when we bind the selectedview on the webpart again (modify shared webpart -> selected view) the item reappears just as magically as it disappeared.The problem is that for our project we have to create more then 90 webs with this sitedefinition and it's not an option manually start clicking every web for this "bug".Whe tried two other ways to solve this problem without success.First way was to remove the listviewwebpart declaration from the ONET and add the webpart with C# code in

Unable to retain Global XSLT parameter value on Listview webpart when paging



Hi Gurus,


We are working on SharePoint 2010.


We implemented Pagination for a listview webpart, on which our custom xslt is applied. We achieved it by applying a pagination xslt to the webpart.


However, we want to filter the listitems appearing in the listview webpart using a pagesfilter webpart(our custom developed webpart for filtering values from the list) on the same page.

We enabled the “Enable Asynchronous Update” property of the listview webpart for pagination.


How to use Navigation Hierarchy control with ListView Webpart on a custom web page?



Here is what i am trying to do with managed metadata and lists.

List name: MyList, it will have 2 managed metadata columns 'Business process' and 'Management model'. I have enabled metadata navigation settings for this list on mentioned columns

I will have a data view webpart mapped with MyList on one of the custom pages. I want to add Navigation Hierachy Control Or equivalent on this custom page which will be based on managed metadata columns 'Business process' and 'Management model'. On the selection of a node from this hierarchy, i would like to filter the ListView on the page.

Is there a way to directly use Navigation Hierarchy that we get on AllItems.aspx page corresponding to List? or any other out of the box method to achieve this WITHOUT custom code?

Thanks and regards,

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.

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?


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?


listview 3.5 bind dropdownlists edit item template VB.NET


I am trying to do this with many issues of data binding doubling the amount and not setting selectedValue on dropdownlist. I have read some posts and they help but I am missing a crucial piece. My problem is that my dropdownlist is doubling the amount of records for the dropdownlist. Instead of "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE", I am getting "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE;YES;NO;YES;NO". My database is correct with the UPDATE part but the rebind after update is failing horribly.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If IsPostBack Then
            If Session("ACTIVETAB").ToString() = Session("SUBCONTRACTSATABNO").ToString() Then
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    Public Function loadlookups(ByVal id As String, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemEventArgs) As DataTable
        Select Case id
            Case "ddlCertReceived"
                dt = GetLookupTable("SubcontractsA", "Sub 1 Cert Received")
                Dim ddlCertReceived As DropDownList = _
                CType(e.Item.FindControl("ddlCertReceived"), DropDownList)
                ddlCertReceived.DataSource = dt
                ddlCertReceived.DataTextField = "lup_text"

Accessing Label Control In a listview using Javascript



I have a Button and Label nested inside a ListView.

When a User clicks the button i want the Label to display a specific value eg"Pass". Of course being a Listview the Label value will be relevant to the row the button was clicked on.

I want all this to happen on client side, but i am struggling to access the Label via my Javascript??

Any suggestions and examples Would be much appreciated..
