Dynamic page customization in WebForms

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki

Dynamic or Expression-based Report Page Properties

Hello, I have a tablix(table) with column grouping making the number of columns dynamic. Although our customers have been warned that this could lead to the columns going beyond the edge of the normal landscape 8.5x11 inch page, they have asked for alternate solutions. Beyond rotating the column labels and reducing fontsizes, the issue is not so much that it goes off the page, but the fact that in print preview mode the data is broken up requiring that you go to the next page to get the remaining data. What I am investigating is whether the Page Properties of the report body, either the pagesize property and/or the interactivesize property, can be manipulated at run time? This way if a user, based on their experience with the parameters they usually select and pass into the report, knows that the results will span the length of the page onto a second page, could choose a new parameter such as pagesize/interactivesize so that it changes from 8.5/11 to perhaps the next standard page size of 8.5/14 inches? This does not mean the contents would change during the course of rendering the report, just a new input that could decide at run time what paper size to use in print preview mode.   Thanks.

Dynamic columns on row group page

Hi, I have a SSRS (2008 R2) report on an Olap data source. On rows I have Agents (as a row group), on columns I have Stores (as a column group) and a measure, let's say SeelOutValue. I want to see sales from agents to stores. I added a page break between each group instance on the Agent row group => one page for an Agent, but the column stores are not filtered by the Agent. I want to see on an Agent page only the stores with values. My question: can I filter the columns (Stores column group) for each Agent (row group)?  Example Dataset:             Store1 Store2 Store3 Store4 Store5  Agent1     1                   1                    1     Agent2     2         2 Agent 3  .... Now an each Agent page there are all 5 stores columns (on Agent1 page column Store2 and Store4 without data). It is possible to see on Agent1 page only Store1, Store3 and Store5 columns, on Agent2 page Store1 and Store2 columns ... ?   Thanks in advance for your help!

An MVC view page in WebForms 4



I've read somewhere that one can actually mix web forms and MVC in the same app. I have a scenario that might benefit from this. I need to have a page where the FORM cannot have a RUNAT in it. It'll be used for file upload. I want almost like an old classic ASP type of page that I can still include some code behind logic. I think the answer is an MVC view page, is it not?

How do I go about creating this page?

Help! Can't find dynamic button's postback in page.request.form??


Okay, I know that dynamic buttons and buttons in general don't use a typical postback and they post through the page.request.form.  Okay, so in visual studio, I was able to determine that page.Request.form and in the all-keys property, i SEE my button there.  It is the last item in all-keys.

When I am clicking this dynamic button which is in an updatepanel, the script below does not detect it as a button, it is still showing it as null:

public static Control GetPostBackControl(Page page)

            Control control = null;
            string ctrlname = page.Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET");
            if (ctrlname != null && ctrlname != string.Empty)
                control = page.FindControl(ctrlname);

create a dynamic field in the master page (site.Master)




I'm starting with ASP.NET MVC (1.0). I have a problem to resolve.

I have developed a web applicaton (an application of articles like e-commerce) with a head (logo and menu). I have defined the head (logo and menu) in the Master page (site.master). Now, I must display the number of articles in the head in a field (like the number of articles in the virtual basket in the e-commerce).

I can read the number of articles in the data base (in the controller), but i can't integrate it in the master page.

Can a Dynamic Data page update a View?



I just started working with Dynamic Data (asp.net 4, VS 2010 express, C#) and have tried to simplify the displaying/not displaying of columns by using a simple, single table, updatable SQL view.  Adding and displaying the view work and the in-line edit and update controls are there and seem functional but I can't access any of the columns.

Does DD not support updatable views or have I missed something?


Dynamic Data Field template edits - Tooltip text, Dynamic Data Page template edits - field sort


I have an ASP.net website build in VB 2010 web dev pro using 4.0 framework.  Its a dynamic data site and I am having some trouble formating some of the field and page canned templates.

Q1: Field Templates - the tooltip code (TextBox1.ToolTip = Column.Description) is within the ascx.vp pages for each of the field templates.  Where can I update each columns description (as the code references) so the tooptip will be column/field specific.  If its not as straight forward as that, I was trying to write an if/else statement because the tooltip code is set at the field type level (decimal, date, etc) and I want it to be column specific.  example;

if column.value = Financial Impact

then  TextBox1.ToolTip = "enter financial impact in whole dollars"

else TextBox1.ToolTip = "next fields tooltip text"
