Calendar causing submit

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all

Ive just found the AJAX Tool Kit (Im new to .net coming from a Classic ASP position) andi  love it.

However i have run into a small problem which i was hoping someone might be able to help me with.

I have used the CalendarExtender Control with a Text box in a form. Most of the fields have validation if they arent filled in.

Ive put the Calendar Control inside an Update Panel to prevent it, when selecting a date, from causing thev alidators to show but its not working.

To see the problem in action go to www.leisurepursuits.co.uk/events/CPage1.aspx, follow the form to the third page and you will see the Calendar.

<asp:ToolkitScriptManager ID="ToolkitScriptManager1" runat="server">
					<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
							<asp:TextBox ID="txtStartDate" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>  

							<asp:Button ID="But1" runat="server" Text="..." />
							runat="server" Format="d/MM/yyyy" />


Thanks very much for your help

SharePoint Calendar Error: The "ListViewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Index was

In one specific SharePoint calendar, on one specific week in that calendar when we select the "more items" link in the monthly view (or the expand all option) we get the following error:
The "ListViewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Index was outside the bounds of the array.

If we select a different week the expand and collapse works fine in that calendar.

Calendar Extender Hijacks Submit Functionality


I have the typical date text box and I added the AJAX.NET Toolkit Calendar Extender to this text box.  However, whenever the user presses the enter key, instead of the page being submitted the calendar control gets displayed.

If I remove the calendar extender the enter button works like it should (the page gets submitted).

What is going on and can I get my enter key submit functionality back?

Reuse a gridview within calendar control


Hello, I have a calendar control that will have events displayed within each cell.

I want to use a pre formatted gridview and simply bind the gridview with a dataset dynamically and display it within the cell of the specified day.

Is there a way to do that or do I have to dynamically build a gridview for every day that there is an event? 

So here is the template gridview and datasource:

 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqlcalitemtemp" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NNTrainingdbconnection %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT NN_Fire_Events.Start_Time, NN_Fire_Events.End_Time, tblNN_Fire_Cli

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

Page.FindControl Causing Null Reference Exception


Hi guys,

I developed a page in VWD 2008 and it works perfectly locally, but when I deployed it on the server every Page.FindControl() call is causing the NullReference Exception "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. " Can anyone help me out? Code is below

Formview1 Submit submitting Formview2



I have a FormView control (FormView1) on a Panel next to another Panel containing another FormView (FormView2) on the same page.

Both FormViews share the same datasource.

FormView2 has Required Field Validation controls within it and FormView1 does not.

Both FormViews are set for DefaultMode of insert.

When I submit FormView1 the Validation controls within FormView2 fire and prevent submission, which of course I don't want to happen. I need both FormViews to function independent of the other.

Is it improper to have two FormViews on the same page and sharing the same datasource?

Thank you in advance.

Data lost on submit


Dear Experts,

I have a modal popup and a GridView in it. The GridView is populated programmatically, i.e. I use .DataBind(). I can enter data into some of the GridView's controls. After I press Submit, I expect to do something with the entered data. But in the button press handler, the GridView is empty. I realize that I have to DataBind() again in the handler, but how can I preserve the data the user enters?

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.
