Label Control

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

Hello All,

I know i do this alot in my coldfusion apps but just having some difficulty with it with .net or may be it does not apply here.

I have a Label that i am trying to put text and dynamic info into..... Pretty much like  "Bank Name" which is a text and the exact name coming from my query... I dont know if its possible with .Net.

With Coldfusion i can just do

<td  align="center" valign="middle">Relationship-<cfoutput>#checkname.relationshipname#</cfoutput> </td>


Any ideas please

Displaying XML in label control using xslt formatting

I am using an XML file as a database and I am using a text box and a button to search for a node within the xml file and display that node on a label control using the format required by the xslt file.  I have created an example to use as the real file is rather big. If I add an xml control to the page and set the documentSource and transformSource to my existing files, it will display the node on the page in the correct format.  If I try and pass the query to the label, it only shows the inner text of the XML tags with no spaces and no formatting as specified in the xslt file. Is there a way to pass the query to a label control and render it using the formatting specified in the xslt file?  In all honesty, it doesn't even have to be a label if I can get the query to render as specified in the xslt file in any way shape or form, I would be happy with that.I feel like I am just one statement away from having it complete but for the life of me can't seem to figure out what it is.  Any help is apprecaited.XML File:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="animal.xslt"?><animals>    <animal name="dog">        <color>brown</color>        <hair>lo

Dynamically Centering a Windows Forms Label Control

I'm working on an athletic workout journal application that will include an Interval / Countdown Timer. I plan to build several versions of this application in different technologies (WPF, Web, Phone) but I'm building the first version in Windows Forms. I want the user to be able to dynamically set the size of the "Stopwatch" display font, then resize the form and have the text re-center in the form, taking into consideration the new font size. Stuff like this is easy in HTML, but not so much in Windows Forms. Though I'm still in the early stages I thought I'd share the bit of math that I've come up with and invite any suggestions you might have.

Hi. I got stuck in the following problem. I am using cascadingdropdown ajax control and binding data into dropdownlist from database. I have done to display the data from database. Now I want to display the data, which is related to the item which I selected from dropdownlist, to 'Label'. ex) I have a following table in database.If I select '2' from the dropdownlist, I want to display 'Taro' to the label. If '1' from the dropdownlist, 'Ken' to the label. ID name 1 Ken 2 Taro I changed 'AutoPostback' property of dropdownlist to TRUE,then when I run the page and select the item from dropdownlist, error occured. Error messege is as belows. Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: Invalid postback or callback argument. Event validation is enabled using in configuration or 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. If there is another way to display the item into a label without postback, or someone knows how to sort out this problem, please help me.

How do I write a string coming from a Javascript function in my Label control?


Hi all,

This is what I tried doing in my Javascript function (partially):

catch (err) {
              document.getElementById("lblError").innerHTML = err.description;

IE output of my lblError label component is a long id name like this:

<td>Last Error: <span id="ctl00_ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder_GlobalMasterPage_ContentPlaceHolder_DashboardMasterPage_lblError">No errors at this time.</span>

how do I look up for lblLabel in this case?

Thank you
