GridView AutoGenerated TextBox Problem!!

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Dear All,

I have gridview with auto generated textboxs which are in a row, and those are generated automatically in rowcreated event. Now gridview contains some DATETIME Columns. so i want to insert that datetime column in sql database with other columns in that row. other columns values(ie. Textbox values) are inserted properly but only date field needs conversion as entered date is in DD/MM/YYYY format and sql accepts datetime in MM/DD/YYYY format so can anyone tell me how to check that perticular textbox string value is string so that i can convert it to its required form??

Please Help Guys Urgently!! as my Project is pending for that part only!!

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.

Problem to group radio button across gridview rows

In general no one can easily group or make a single selection from radio button list inside gridview rows. There are a lot of way to make a single or unique selection from list. Here i want to share how i can address this problem in the most easiest way. Googling the problem most of the cases i saw the grouping in horizontal way. Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:

Gridview Enable Selection Problem



I have a gridview with Enable selection and Enable Paging equals to TRUE.

I also set the PageSize of my gridview to 4 so that I only displays 4 rows per page.

The problem is when I click the pager in the bottom of my gridview, my gridview is disappearing and no records appear.

Here is code behind of my gridview:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                e.Row.Attributes("style") = "cursor:pointer"

                e.Row.Cells(2).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(3).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(4).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(5).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(6).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))

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)

Excel-like experience - gridview focus problem



I'm creating a page where people can order several items from a list without having to press "edit" and "save" in between like you normally would in a gridview. The user writes down the quantity, and finally presses a "submit" button that saves the order.

I want the user to have a windows form (or excel) like eperience, so once the user puts in the quantity and moves on to the next item, either by TAB or by clicking on the TextBox, i make some calculations without the user beeing bothered with a full refresh or having to press a buton to execute the event, so I place the controls inside an UpdatePanel and use TextBox.TextChanged. The event runs code that calculates the sum for the row (price * quantity) and shows that in a column called "Sum", and updates a label in a fixed position with the new order total ("Total").

Any ideas on how to achieve this?

Right now I use a GridView with a templatefield for the Quantity and set the TextBox.TextChanged event to fire to make the calculations. The problem is that the focus then changes.

By using SmartNavigation or the ScriptManager.SetFocus I manage to retain focus on the TextBox that executed the Postback, but the user might have moved on to a textbox far down the gridview (thus causing the postback by leaving the previo

GridView Problem


I've been asked to change an ASP.NET project to MVP Architecture - which may have something to do with what is going wrong.

I make the call through the architecture to the database which returns a dataset which I've verified is correct, (using dataset.writeXML() ) just before databinding  to the gridview.

On one page everything works as expected (plus any post backs). Another page the Page_Load works correct and the gridview is populated, but any postbacks do not work- it retains the Page_Load's data. Then on the third page the GridView never shows though databinded. In all these cases I've checked that the Dataset is good data, and made sure to DataBind().

All three use the exact same logic. Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreicated.

Thank you for your help.

            presentation = new ManageFirms_Pres(this);

    protected void btnSearch_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string firmName = (txtFirmName.Text != string.Empty) ? txtFirmName.Text : null;

Changing a textbox's readonly property right before update on a gridview


I have a gridview with a date field. I don't want the user to be able to type in their own date and mess up the format so I made the property readonly. That date is then set by a point and click interface. This is all working fine but when the user clicks update this field doesn't update because it's readonly. If i turn readonly off it works so is there a way to turn off the readonly property right before submit?

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.
