Help with updating database with values from Repeater control using c#

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

Hello, I'm new to ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. I really need some help.

I used a Repeater control to create a simple (editable) list where, when a user logs in, they can edit their list of expenses.  The ASP page works fine.

 My issue is with the code-behind.  I am really confused with how to extract the values from the repeater control. The FindControl method does not seem to be working.  Also, the code I am using resets my 'Amount' values back to 0.00. (0.00 is the amount the user sees when they first encounter the page).

 Here's a portion of the code on the ASP page:

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"





<td><asp:Label ID="lblExpId" runat="server"  Text='<%# Bind("ExpId") %>'></asp:Label> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="lblExpense" runat="server" Width= "190px" Text='<%# Bind("ExpenseName") %>'></asp:Textbox> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="txtAmount" runat="server" Width= "100px"

Updating Database with gridview control


I am sure I am not the first to ask this question but I cannot find an answer in these or any other forums. I guess I am not wording the question right.

In short I have a gridview populated but a database via an SQLDatasource. I have an Edit column in the datagrid and an updatequery in the datasource. When the Edit is click the line goes into edit mode, the user then clicks Update and I get an error. 

Could not find control 'DropDownList1' in ControlParameter 'Frequency'.

The only complication is that there is a drop down control when the "EDIT" column is selected. The dropdownlist gets it list from another SQLDatasource. This all works fine.

Here is the code snip:

        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateEditButton="True" 

            AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" Width="

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?



I am currently in the process of writing a facebook type 'activity feed' for a site. Currently I am binding the last 10 items to a repeater control, which contains a usercontrol representing each item. This works fine but there are a couple of requiremnts that are giving me problems and wondered if the the good people of the forum could make some suggestions.

The requirement is that when a user clicks a refresh button any new events are added to the top of the list, the previous items drop down and the equivalent number of old items drop off the bottom, all with nice slider transitions.

I have put the repeater inside of an update control and are able to handle the transitions by using RegisterStartup script to drop jquery calls onto the page for the slider. However I cannot find a way to dynamically add or remove new datarows to the repeater. I need the old items to stay in the repeater and be pushed down by the new items, so completely refreshing the datasource seems like a bad idea.

I was thinking about maybe storing the datasource in the viewstate and adding rows to that, maybe with an extra column on the end which stores what transition is needed on the databind for my jquery, but there will be a 'View more items' link at the bottom of the page, so I am worried that the list could get pretty large and there

Stored Procedures & SqlDataAdapter not updating a calendar control


Hi all,

I have a database linked to a calendar. I had a peice of code that retrieved dates from a database and populated the calendar. I wanted to tidy up my code using stored procedures (they seem neater & i assume there's a benefit somewhere). so i came up with this, however it's not working. The calendar displays, but it's not being populated with the database entries. The SqlCommand & SqlParameter I have working elsewhere in my code; as with the SqlDataAdapter (which also worked before i tried to conver to a stored procedure!) but combining these three (SqlCommand, SqlParameter & SqlDataAdapter) seem to be causing me problems.

It's probably something stupid but if someone could take a look and point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

Child control in Repeater

accessing values from a database with datalist?


I have a datalist and I am filling it using a dataadapter, dataset. So in my .ascx page, I have

<asp:datalist runat="server" id="dlProducts" repeatcolumns="2" repeatdirection="horizontal">


<table border="0">

<tr><td><%# Eval("Item_Name") %></td></tr>

<tr><td>I have to add a picture here</td><td><%# Eval("First_Name") %></td></tr>




In the area where I have put a statement like "I have to add a picture here", I have write a big case statement.  Like:

Case: 6 // show a picture from file1

case: 7 // show a picture from file2

Case 8: //show a picture from file3


So How do I do this here?  Because I dont know how to access the datalist values from code behind.


Here is my code behind:

SQLString = "SELECT First_Name, Picture, item_name, item_id from table1 where item_id = " + request.querystring["iid"];

dataadapter daItems = new dataadapter(SQLString, "connection_name");

dataset dsItems = new dataset();



Control Values When Returning to Page


Why do controls value not persist when returning to a page (e.g. via browser back button)?  If I set control values without utilizing a post back the controls will maintain their last value when I return to the page.  If I set a control value and then call a post back, the control value is reset to the default value when returning.

I have many pages with a gridview, and a textbox which is used to filter the gridview contents.  I set the filter textbox, filter the gridview (postback), go to another page, and when I return to the gridview page (via back button), my filter textbox is reset empty, and the gridview is the original (unfiltered) data.

What concept am I missing here?

Thanks in advance...

Values in user control fields empty when AutoEventWireup=true ?

As a BizTalk developer I'm trying to build a ASP.NET website so some obvious things might be new to me (so please be gentle). I have a web form and I have a user control on it. This user control contains a panel with some user properties that are to be stored in a database. So far nothing fancy. The user control itself contains a panel and is working fine (all code to retrieve and store the values is working). I used the default settings of creating a user control and one of them was AutoEventWireup=true. This works fine because I also have some dropdown boxes (and other fields) that need to be filled with values from the database and that happens in the Page_load event. The panel specifies the 'DefaultButton' which calls a method when clicked to save the values after the user has changed them. On this click the code of the method is called, I confirmed that, but I found out that the values of my controls on the user control (for example the Textbox control) are empty. As a non-ASP.NET developer I couldn't figure out why. So I changed some settings like AutoEventWireup to false. Off course this resulted in my dropdown boxes no longer to be initially filled, but my surprise was big to find out my controls actually contained the values the user typed in. Logically I need both the values and th

jQuery Rating Control in Repeater - Not Duplicating per Record

Hi Everyone,There is a similar instance of this @ http://forums.asp.net/p/1380776/2919093.aspx#2919093 However I haven't had a response, maybe due to the age of the topic, but the problem is different in the sense I am not using AJAX Rating Control, I am using radio buttons contained in a Div named Ratings, which is picked up by jQuery to style to radio buttons accordingly. The output is that it will put the stars on the first record but anything after just shows origional unstyled radio buttons. Just thinking off the top of my head, but does anything need to be put in the ItemDataBound event? The jQuery for the stars etc were attained from the link below:http://orkans-tmp.22web.net/star_rating/index.html#demos=&main-menu=0&demo-tabs=3 Here is my code:.ASPX:<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Admin/Admin.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Test.aspx.cs" Inherits="Admin_Test" Title="Untitled Page" %> <%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="asp" %> <asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="CPCHeader" Runat="Server"> </asp:Content> <asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="AdminCPC" Runat="Server"> <asp:R

Accessing a row's dropdownlist values AFTER the gridview control is in Edit mode

Hello, I have a gridview control. When it goes into Edit mode, there are 3 dropdownlists in one cell that are populated by separate stored procedures during the RowDataBound event. The 1st dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 2nd dropdownlist is populated with. The 2nd dropdownlist's value is used as a parameter to determine what the 3rd dropdownlist is populated with. Everything works fine when the row is first put into Edit mode. While I'm in Edit mode and I change the selection in the 1st dropdownlist, how do I access the control so I can feed this new parameter to the 2nd dropdownlist? I have the first 2 dropdownlists set for AutoPostBack so that the Page_Load event is fired when the user changes a value. I know how to get access to these controls via the FindControl method when the row is being databound but how do I find the control during the Page_Load event? Thanks for any help!!!   Penny  

Writing values back to a database

Hi All, I'm trying to write values back to an access database from an open source mathematical programming language (called glpk) using ODBC. I succeeded in doing so in most variables except one. The problem is described below: The following code gets an error when writing the data: \begin code:   table x3_iii {j in TF, k in C, p in P, t in T: x3[j,k,p,t]>0} OUT 'ODBC'   'FileDSN=.\d2.dsn'   'UPDATE ((Channels a INNER JOIN ChannelPeriodProducts b' 'ON a.ChannelID = b.ChannelID)' 'INNER JOIN TransformerTypes d' 'on a.OriginFacilityID = d.FacilityID' 'SET b.Quantity = ?'   'WHERE d.TransformerTypeID = ?'   'AND a.OriginFacilityID =?'   '    AND b.ProductID = ?'   '    AND b.PeriodID = ?':   x3[j, k, p, t], j, k, p, t; \end code Note that the sql is on multiple lines, because of a maximum strings limit in the glpk (but the way I used in the code is fine and worked without problems for writing other variables). Now, let me describe what I am basically trying to do: I'm trying to write the values for the variable x3[j,k,p,t] in its field "Quantity" in the table 'ChannelPeriodProducts'. The indices for that variable are j,k,p,t. The 'ChannelPeriodProducts' table has a "ChannelID", "PeriodID", "ProductID" and "Quantity" field

Issue with Repeater control.

Hello. I have a Repeater control which contains asp:Button control in ItemTemplate. I want to handle Button's Click event, but when I'm clicking that Button the error is thrown: Invalid postback or callback argument.  Event validation is enabled using <pages enableEventValidation="true"/> in configuration or <%@ Page EnableEventValidation="true" %> in a page.  For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them.  If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.But on other computer that piece of code is working.I set EnableEventValidation to false, but it's still not working. Please help me out.
