Dynamic Filling of TextBox AutoComplete not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Hi guys,


i would like to fill the textbox autocomplete stringcollection "on the fly" while typing. i don't want to fill the collection while initializing, 'cause it's too much data: the sql server-table has about 100.000+ rows. the filling takes too much time and the "autocomplete-popup-find-something-box" itself is getting too slow, too.

my configuration:
.NET-Framework: 2.0.50727, System.Windows.Forms.TextBox

TextBox-Properties: AutoCompleteSource: CustomSource; AutoCompleteMode: Suggest

i tried several different things...

1. i did put this code in the "TextChanged"-event, but i think it's 'too late' there:

private void

Dynamic TextBox Validation not working on dynamic DataGrid on PlaceHolder



I have a placeholder to which I programmatically add DataGrids... In the DataGrids, I programmatically add TextBoxes along with dynamic validations. Somehow, the DataGrids show up, but the dynamic validations don't work. If I set them to static, the blank space for them appears, but still, they wont work.

I'd appreciate your help on this.

Dynamic Textbox List Control - problems refreshing


Ive been stuck on this one for a month:

So I have a custom control that has a list of textboxes, and a button that will dynamically add a new textbox to the list.

 So I have an addTextbox() function, that will do something like

TextbBox t = new TextBox()

 then I add it to the page.  So adding a new textbox works fine, but I have values that I want to put into each textbox and upon each page load, the values get replaced.  What I need to do is get the textboxes from the viewstate so I can use their values for other textboxes, but since they are created anonymously, im not sure how I can do that.  I tried to get the unique name and put all of them into an arraylist, then upon the next page load, load the names from the list, but the unique name isnt unique.  Thanks

TextBox AutoPostBack not working when handling other DHTML event


I have to format a number in a TextBox while it is being typed. Right after the TextBox looses focus, I need to do other processing on server side, including some database queries.

I'm doing the formatting by handling the onkeyup event, client side. But when I add the handler, the onTextChanged event stops firing on the server. I've tried different return values for the handler but unfortunatelly I'm stuck.

To reproduce the problem, here is a sample where the formatting function was replaced by a simple "convert to uppercase" function. You'll see that, contrary to the expected, the Label doesn't get filled when the TextBox looses focus. It does get filled, however, if the user presses the ENTER key.

What can I possibly be doing wrong with such a simple task?


<%@ Page Language="VB" %>

<script language="VB" runat="server">

Sub Page_Load(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal E As EventArgs)

'' Adding the event handler like this has the same effect as adding it inline

'txtTextBox.Attributes.Add("onkeyup", "return(upperCase(this));")

End Sub

Protected Sub txtTextBox_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

lblTextBox.Text = S

Dynamic compilation of aspx-files stopped working!



I recently ran into some strange problems. Changes to files that are not code-behind (and not gets compiled to a DLL) should not require you to recompile the whole website, and this has never been I problem for me. These should actually get compiled dynamically when you first access the resource, e.g. the first time when browsing an updated aspx-page in the browser. 

But yesterday, during development of a website, I noticed that even the smallest changes in html, javascript or anything in the .aspx-files doesn't get reflected when I save and reload the page in my browser. Rebuilding doesn't help either, actually I'll have to do a "Rebuild All" (in Visual Studio 2008) in order to see the changes. This applies to all aspx-files in my project.

I tried with minor changes on files in another web application project on the same server, and there it works as it should. Something must has happened to this particular application, but I cannot figure out what.
Do you have any ideas on how to solve this?

Best regards

RequiredFieldValidator not working for TextBox?


Hi there,

I've recently finished building one of my first websites (and CMS) in ASP.NET but have came across a problem where a RequiredFieldValidator isn't working as it should do? I originally created the admin page to not require the RequiredFieldValidator, but now that I do need it the page won't acknowledge it's there. I have even set the field in the database to not accept nulls, but the query will still insert a null value into the database (SQL Server 2008 Express).

Hopefully someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong! The TextBox that I'm referring to is "txtSectionTitle"

Thanks :)
