Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

ControlType = "System.Windows.Forms.WindowsFormsApplication1." + "PictureBox1"; System.Reflection.Assembly asm; asm = typeof(Form).Assembly; ControlObject = (System.Windows.Forms.Control)asm.CreateInstance(ControlType); ControlObject.Name = ControlName; The next code generated following exception for me: ControlObject.Name = ControlName;

using the linqDataSource control programmatically (dynamically)



my scenario is this: I want to use the linqDataSource control to bind data to a gridview for it's efficient built-in paging and sorting features *but* I don't want the data to be bound until the user has input various search parameters, so I need to bind the data from a button click event. Also, the search options will be somewhat complex in that there will be several optional search parameters, via various dropdowns and textboxes, so I can't just declaratively/statically setup all the WHERE parameters on the linqDataSource (at least I'm assuming I can't, or that it may result in poor performance if I do and just assign default values like the everything wildcard '%' for the cases the user doesn't use a particular search parameter). Given that brief description, here is an example of what I'm doing, but with only one WHERE parameter for simplicity, the real code will be adding anywhere from 1 to about 12 WHERE parameters depending on how the user sets the search options in the GUI.

the linqDataSource on the aspx page:

<asp:LinqDataSource ID="ldsMain" runat="server" 
        Select="new (field1, field2, field3, etc..)" 

Persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control


Hi All,

I am trying to persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control. Here are the details

I have a user control which contains a a listBox and button. On Page_Load of user control I am populating the ListBox control with some values. On Click of button, I am trying to fetch the values which I have selected in ListBox. Though this seems very simple and straight forward I am unable to fetch values.

My Page_Load Function

void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)










My Click Function

Protected Void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


       string strValue = listBox.SelectedValue



I have placed brake point at Page_Load and on click function, I am seeing that the moment the breakpoin

.NET Reflection: Dynamically Bind Your Data Layer to Stored Procedures and SQL Commands Using .NET M


One major inconvenience of using SQL stored procedures from code is having to match type information. You have to write long wrapper functions around the procedures just to expose the data types. In the .NET Framework, however, the reflection services of the System.Reflection namespace allow you to query rich metadata that describe data types. This article explains how to use reflection in .NET to end your stored procedure nightmares. The author creates four custom classes, including one that generates a SQLCommand object based on the metadata of a method. Using this library, you'll be on your way to automating the generation of stored procedures.

Dynamically load user control without postback


Hi all,

I need urgent help. (c#coding)

In my base page, I have a dropdownlist control which loads different usercontrols on selectedindexchanged event.

While loading these usercontrols, my page postbacks all the page. I used updatepanel but again same problem.

Is there any way to load controls without postback? I Really need help as soon as possible.

Here is my code:

protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (Session["control"] != null)
            string c = Session["control"].ToString();
            if (c == "1")
                iuc = (IlkogretimUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/Ilkogretim.ascx");
                dl.SelectedValue = Session["control"].ToString();
            else if (c == "2")
                luc = (LiseUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/LiseUC.ascx");
                dl.SelectedValue = Session["control"].ToString();
            else if (c == "3")
                youc = (YuksekokulUC)LoadControl("~/Controls/Yuksekokul.ascx");

Adding carriage returns between 2 dynamically created controls in an HtmlTableCell


The title pretty much explains it. Here is what i'm trying to do...

 Private Sub LoadGrid_CommentsField(ByVal Row As HtmlTableRow, ByVal BookingNumber As String, ByVal CommentsText As String)
  Dim Txt As TextBox
  Dim Cmd As ClickOnceButton.ClickOnceButton

  Txt = New TextBox
  Txt.ID = "txtComment_" & BookingNumber
  Txt.CssClass = "TFAppControls"
  Txt.TextMode = TextBoxMode.MultiLine
  Txt.MaxLength = 500
  Txt.Width = New Unit(95, UnitType.Percentage)
  Txt.Text = CommentsText

  Row.Cells(cComments).InnerHtml &= "<br/>"

  Cmd = New ClickOnceButton.ClickOnceButton
  Cmd.DisableAfterClick = True
  Cmd.Text = "Save Comments"
  Cmd.ID = "cmdSaveComments_" & BookingNumber
  Cmd.CssClass = "TFAppButtons"
  Cmd.EnableViewState = False
 End Sub

On the line where i try and update the InnerHtml, i get the following error; "Cannot get inner content of  because the contents are not literal."

Issues with dynamically created TabContainer (Hide/Show TabPanel)


I have a web page that contains an UpdatePanel. In that panel, there is a TabContainer control that has 5 TabPanels, only the first one "Tab 1" will be displayed during initial page load. There is an Add button in "Tab 1", whenever it gets clicked, I will add (show) the next TabPanel (Tab 2, Tab 3, etc., all the way to Tab 5). "Tab 2" thru "Tab 5" contains a Close button that will close (hide) the current tab when clicked.

I'm doing all of these from code behind (dynamically create controls in Page_Init event and re-generate them during postback, track each TabPanel's content in a session variable, etc.), and everything seems to work just fine IF after adding several TabPanels, I remove  them in order (i.e. remove Tab 5 first, then Tab 4, Tab 3, etc.). It will NOT work whenever I try to remove a tab in the middle, then I will get all kinds of strange results.

I've attached the sample codes here for reviewing and testing. Any help is greatly appreciated.

how to apply validation controls on Gridview which is created dynamically

 hi, i created a gridview with two columns and 8 rows dynamically. All the rows are empty and editable at runtime. I am giving column names for this grid from some other .aspx page by passing column names using querystring.Because i am using this grid for three different pairs of column names.  i would like to know how to apply Required Field Validator, Regular Expression Validator  and Range Validator on Gridview textboxes. So that by using those validators i want to validate user inputs. And i would also like to know how to add rows at runtime for this grid. I am using ASP.net 2.0 and C#.net for this.(Visual Studio 2005) The code i am using to create gridview is below. <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="LoadData.aspx.cs" Inherits="LoadData" %>  <form id="form1" runat="server">  <div> <asp:GridView ID="GrdDynamic" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ForeColor="#333333" BorderColor="GradientInactiveCaption" BorderStyle="Solid" style="z-index: 108; left: 24px; position: absolute; top: 13px">  <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />  <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB"

Get content of programatically created control before postback

Hi.I have quite a problem here, and hope you can help :)I´ll try to describe the problem in steps, as this might be the easiest to understand:1. Page_Load is called when the page is requested, and calls a BuildTable() method2. The BuildTable method creates a table which contains several textboxes3. the user types some text in these textboxes4. The userthen  changes an item in a Dropdownlist on the page which is intended to change some other content on the page5. Page_Load is called, and afterwards the DropDownListBookingType_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender,EventArgs e) method are called, and the content is changed6. The text the user typed in the programmatically created textbox controls are lost!Now how do I remain this text information? If just the SelectedIndex_changed method was called first, I could save it in session.. But as far as I can tell, all data on the page are discarded when you create a partial postback :(What to do?Thanks alot for your time!

Dynamically Created Charts

Using SSRS 2008. Is it possible to create a chart dynamically based on data passed in the query and then used in maybe expressions. Example would be if ClientID=1 then create a bar chart for 12 months, column colors would be green, if ClientID=2 then create a quarterly bar chart, column colors would be blue, if ClientID=3 create a 13 month chart (if possible) to show regular 12 months and a 13th month as a YTD column, column colors would be black. Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated

dynamically add control or register and set visibility

I have a classic asp website that I would like to convert to asp.net. The application is structured such that there is one central page that uses "server.execute" to call a page template and the template uses "server.execute" to call the page functionality. I am thinking that I will create a single asp.net page that sits alongside the current page. I can then slowly convert existing page functionality to usercontrols and add a little logic to redirect to the apropriate page based on the requested page functionality. Should I dynamically add the usercontrol to the page for the page functionality or should I register each control on the page and dynamically change the visibility? We don't add new functionality or update the exisiting functionality very often. Most changes are to the content stored in the database used by the pages.

loadviestate of control created on the load() event

Why if I create a label on the load() event its properties are restored after a postback, even though it doesn't pass through the loadviestate stage? Example:Partial Class Default2 Inherits System.Web.UI.Page Protected Overrides Sub LoadViewState(ByVal savedState As Object) MyBase.LoadViewState(savedState) End Sub Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load Dim lb As New Label Me.Controls.Add(lb) If Not Page.IsPostBack Then lb.Text = "xxxx" End If End Sub End Class <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.vb" Inherits="Default2" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head runat="server"> <title>title</title> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" /> </form> </body> </html>   And why everybody advice to create controls in the overrides of the method LoadViewState(), if it's ok also in the load() event

Edit CSS path on file that is dynamically created by ASP.NET

Hi,I'm not very familiar with .NET so bear with me. The website is question is built in ASP.NET and is using Themes.The external CSS link is outputted on the .master page dynamically by ASP.NET (so I've been told), apparently it generates this code from any CSS file located in /App_Themes/The problem is I need the link to the CSS to begin with a "/" so it points to the root directory.Currently the syntax is: <link href="App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />And I need it to be <link href="/App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />Is there anyway I can achieve this?Much thanks,Nick
