Accordion inside Gridview, fetch gridview data when expanding accordion

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

using asp.net/vb.net 2005

I want to create an accordion inside a gridview with the following functionality:

The user will only see one field of the gridview initially, the ProductCategoryID.  When the page loads it will only query the ProductCategoryID and this will be the only field displayed.

Next when the user clicks on the accordion to expand it inside the gridview I would like to query the database to get all Products that are part of the ProductCategory.  I will query using the ProductCategoryID that is being displayed.

I need to do this for performance issues.  The main thing I am looking for is how to query the database once the user expands a given ProductCategoryID.

but now I think of it one thing I need to know:  when you bind an accordion to a dataset will it create one pane for each record returned?  It might be better to put the gridview inside the accordion.  I'm willing to do either, as long as it works

How to Format Data inside a Bound Column of Gridview?



I have a bound column.

<asp:BoundField DataField="WorkPreference"  HeaderText="WorkPreference"
                    <HeaderStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" />

dr["WorkPreference"] = sa.WorkPreference ( This is how I bind the data  to a DataRow)

The example of the data which gets bound to this column is like the following:

Communications and Marketing Officers; Environmental Assessors; Geologists and Geosciences; Geospatial/Spatial Information Officers;

What I want is that the data should be presented to the user like the following:

Communications and Marketing Officers

Environmental Assessors

Geologists and Geosciences

Geospatial/Spatial Information Officers

In short: I basicaly want to put a break where there is a colon and then bind the data to the gridview.

It looks like simple but if you can let me know. Thanks.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

Editing the Data in a GridView

In addition to deleting a GridView's underlying data, another common need is to allow end users to edit the data displayed in a GridView. With ASP.NET 1.x's DataGrid control, editing the data is certainly possible, but requires creating three event handlers and writing a dozen or so lines of code. With the GridView and ASP.NET 2.0, it is possible to create an editable GridView without writing a single line of code! All of the necessary functionality is encapsulated within the GridView.

The GridView allows editing on a row-by-row basis. An editable GridView contains an additional column with an Edit button in each row. When the end user clicks on an Edit button that row becomes editable, causing the Edit button to change to Update and Cancel buttons and the other columns to become TextBoxes. The end user can then update one or more column values and click Update to save their changes.
