dynamic creating controls in webpart

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hello everybody,


My webpart (wss 3.0, VS2005) initialy contain a listbox. Depeding on the selection made a certain amount of textboxes are to be created and rendered. Via these dynamically created / rendered textboxes text can be submitted (via a button), for futher processing.


I am not sure how, or where in the webpart code, to dynamically create these textboxes.


Maybe somebody can give me some advise on this topic.


Thanks in advance

Creating dynamic web controls outside Init method



I am creating a dynamic <asp:Table> based on a user's selection from a DropDownList. The number of columns and rows in the table depends on the user's choice from the DropDown.

The final two columns in each row needs to contain an Edit and Delete button. I am able to create these buttons programmatically. However, I am unable to get the click event to fire.

After researching this, it appears to be the case that my dynamic Web controls need to be created in the page Init method.

However, I am unable to do this as I do not know how many table rows, columns and buttons to create, until after the user has made a selection from a DropdownList.

I would be be very grateful for some tips on the correct way to create and enable the events for my dynamic buttons, in this scenario.

Here is a brief outline of how the program currently works (this is just a brief outline I quickly sketched, small details may be wrong!):


<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMyDropDown" runat="server" 
                onselectedindexchanged="ddlMyDropDown_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true"></asp:DropDownList>

<asp:Table ID="tblMyTable" runat="server" /> 

Error when creating a webpart using user controls


I received the following error when trying to create a webpart with user controls. 

Unable to cast object of type 'ASP._controltemplates_UserControl_ascx' to type 'namespace.class'. I deleted all the files from the location
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files, but still the same error occurs.
Here is the code for referencing the user control. 

protected const string defaultUserControlPathField = "~/_controltemplates/myUserControl.ascx";
 protected string userControlPathField = defaultUserControlPathField;
 namespace.class tempControl;
UserControl myControl;
 myControl = (UserControl)this.Page.LoadControl(this.userControlPathField);
                    tempControl = (namespace.class)myControl;

Does anyone have an idea about this error?

i have this code which works... 

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Label1.Text = Convert.ToString(radioButtons.Count);

It detects the number of radiobuttons that were dynamically created...

But when I use the following code inside the BtnSelectClick event...

Problem with Dynamic Controls



I have a custom user control that contains within it a repeater control. Inside this repeater I programmatically add another custom user control, which contains a text box and a custom validator. This final custom user control can be added any number of times depending on the application's logic. All of this is part of a wizard step.

When the user completes the step, if any of the data added to the text boxes is incorrect the validator gets fired on post back. However, because I can have any number of these controls added to the repeater, the user has to scroll down to see any of the incorrectly completed boxes.

Due to the controls being added dynamically it is not possible to use a validation summary control - I have tried!!! Therefore, is there away I can use JavaScript to position a cursor or to jump to each incorrectly completed textbox without the user needing to scroll down the page? For example, if there are 10 textboxes, and textboxes 8 and 9 have numbers inside them inside strings, then the JavaScript should jump textbox 9.

Creating Custom ASP.NET Control for use on a SharePoint 2010 OOTB WebPart

I am currently trying to develop a custom asp.net control that can be deployed to SharePoint 2010 and then included on something like a New item form. I have been able to build the control as part of a webpart but it needs to be done as a stand alone control that can be used on various webparts including the out of the box webparts like the WebPartPages:DataFormWebPart. Are there any good examples of building a custom control, deploying it to SharePoint and then using SharePoint designer to add that control to an existing web part?

Creating Dynamic Group Fields for a Crystal Report?

I have a VB.Net application which generates quite a few Crystal Reports. One report in particular has a Group Section. What I am trying to do with my VB.Net app is pass a value (a sql server column name used in the report). This value is represented by radio buttons. For example, the user may check either "ZipCode" or "State" or "Category" or "Type" or "Vendor". Each of these options represent a column in the database table used in the report. I simply want to be able to write the "SelectionFormula" using one of these options but not sure how to go about it. Thanks, Blake
