Paging error using SPGridView


I'm using the OOTB SPGridViewPager control associated with an SPGridView. This worked fine in 2007 but now we've upgraded to 2010, I get the following error when trying to page through the dataset;

System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Int32' to type 'System.String'.    at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.SPGridView.set_PageIndex(Int32 value)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.SPGridViewPager.OnClickNext(EventArgs args)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.SPGridViewPager.RaisePostBackEvent(String eventArgument)     at System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument)     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint

My code is still referring to the version 12 Microsoft.SharePoint assembly so I'm not quite sure what's changed to cause the issue.

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.

Manually sorting and paging Gridview without using datasource control

Many a times while working with Gridview we want to work with the paging and sorting functionality without using any datasource control. Gridview is flexible enough to perform these tasks without the use of any datasource control and only a few lines of code.

Custom Control Design-Time SiteMap Provider Error


Greetings - I was referred here by MSDN forums hope this is the right place -  

I have a custom control (:WebControl) that renders web.sitemap in a specific way. While it runs error free and produces the expected result, at Design-Time it complains

Error Creating Control - MyControl  The provider 'AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider' specified for the defaultProvider does not exist in the providers collection.

I have discovered that the error is cause by this line of code:

string div = string.Format("<div class='{0}' id='{1}'>{2}</div>", this.CssClass, this.ID.ToString(), EnumerateNodesRecursive(SiteMap.RootNode, level));

or more specifically, by the reference to SiteMap.RootNode - I am not clear what is missing thoough because I have configured the SiteMapProvider in web.config as this:

        <add name="AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider" 
             type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" 

"Type ASP.x is not defined" error for dynamic user control when publishing updateable


I have a user control (ContainerCtrl) which programmatically instantiates another user control (SimpleCtrl) in OnLoad. It builds and runs fine, but when I publish it I get the error "error BC30002: Type 'ASP.SimpleCtrl' is not defined." (If I publish without the "updateable" option there's no error, but I need the site to be updateable.)

I assume this has to do with the particulars of how the assembly(ies) are built for the different compiler options. My question is, how can I get it to work properly for "updateable" publishing?

VS 2008 / .NET 3.5 sp1

The code follows (web.config is the default from Visual Studio).

Many thanks, Dave


<%@ Control Language="VB" ClassName="SimpleCtrl" CodeFile="SimpleCtrl.ascx.vb" Inherits="_SimpleCtrl" %>

    Simple control


Partial Class _SimpleCtrl
    Inherits UserControl

    'Nothing to see here.

Custom Control Design view error



I have created a custom control from scratch and it works fine as in you can build the project that uses it and it works fine at runtime. Problem is when you go to design view the control shows an error in the place of where the control should be rendered.

Error: '<SomeValue>' Could not be set to '<SomeProperty>'

This shows up on all my custom set properties. These properties are created as basic as possible. I can give the properties values in Source view and run the app just fine. I can even add a Onclick event. If I don't set any custom properties the control will render fine in Design view. It's only when I set a value to a custom property.

Property Code Example:

public string Text
                string ret = "";
                object obj = ViewState["Text"];
                if (obj != null)
                    ret = obj.ToString();
                return ret;
                ViewState["Text"] = value;

I've even removed the Category and Description tags with no difference.

I don't know if what I said makes sens, but I hope it

Using tabs from the AjaxControlToolkit causes error: ...control contains code blocks (i.e. <% ... %>


I'm getting the error:

The Controls collection cannot be modified because the control contains code blocks (i.e. <% ... %>).

When attempting to add the tabs from the AjaxControlToolkit.  A little background..Theres an existing aspx page in a microsite which used the accordion control and the tabbed control ...I need to modify this page to use a different masterpage. 

The original site was .Net Framework 2.0 and the page in question used AjaxControlToolkit 1.0. which I manually installed originally.  Some of the site has been further developed using the .Net Framework 3.5.  (Come with AjaxControlToolkit) Now I have come to update this aspx page and I get the error above.

I have narrowed the down to the TabContainer (I think)  Does anyone have any experience with this sort of problem?  Also what version of the AjaxControlToolkit should be with the .Net Framework 3.5? I have 1.0.20229.20821. 

I also tried to browse to the AjaxControlToolkit.dll to add the tools to the tool box as they're missing... thinking this may be an indicator as to why it wasn't working. I get the error: 'There was an error loading types from assembly C:\inetpub\wwwroot\project\Bin\AjaxControlToolkit.dll Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Extensions. Version=

SPGridView Paging In Webpart

I'm working on making results display web part and I'm displaying things using an SPGridView.  Things are working fine, except that I can't get the paging to work correctly.

The paging controls are displaying, but when I click to the next page, it reloads the page I'm on and I loose my results (basically the data isn't getting sent to the next page).  Below is the code I have:

Button cmdSearch;
        TextBox txtQueryText;
        DropDownList scopesDropDown;
        Label lblQueryResult;
        SPGridView grdResults;

        protected override void CreateChildControls()
            // Create and add the controls that make up the
            // user interface of the web part. 

            scopesDropDown = new DropDownList();


            txtQueryText = new TextBox();

            cmdSearch = new Button();
            cmdSearch.Text = "Start Search";
            cmdSearch.Click += new EventHandler(cmdSearch_Click);

            lblQueryResult = new Label();

        void cmdSearch_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

AjaxToolkit's CascadingDropDown control is throwing Method Error 404 in Hybrid system environment (

Hi Experts, We have an Asp.net web application, which is deployed in shared hosting environment. On shared hosting environment initial request to this web application is handled by Linux server and then based on the requested page the Linux server is redirecting request to web server on windows OS. Now, in our web application, we have used ajaxToolkit's CascadingDropDown control to populate three levels of categories. In the hybrid system described above, the CascadingDropDown control is throwing Method Error 404. I would appreciate if some body can guide on how to resolve this issue.

Error Creating Control - 'asp:UpdatePanelAnimationExtender' could not be set on property 'Animati

It doesn't seem to matter what I try to make the animation do, I keep getting this shown in the designer. No one else on google seems to be getting that problem either. Note: it doesn't cause debugging or runtime issues... in fact, the only negative thing it does is make it extremely annoying when I look at the designer... I'm going to have about 12 of these updatepanelanimations firing everytime the timer ticks too :(. MasterPage file has the toolkitscriptmanager on it. Here is my designer code for the page I'm having the issue on:<%@ Page Title="" Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.Master" CodeBehind="TimeLine.aspx.vb" Inherits="TimeLine.WebForm1" %> <%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="asp" %> <asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server"> <asp:Timer ID="Timer1" runat="server" Interval="7000"> </asp:Timer> <asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server" Height="285px" HorizontalAlign="Center" Width="970px" BackImageUrl="~/Images/Img.jpg"> <br />

Ajax Control Toolkit Error Creating Control

Error Creating Control - ToolkitScriptManager1Unknown server tag 'asp:ToolkitScriptManager'.Error Creating Control - ComboBox1Unknown server tag 'asp:ComboBox'.I encountered this error, very annoying becasue it would shut off design view rendering of ComboBoxes as well as entire parent containers like ListViews.  It took me a lot of efforts to hunt down the cause, which would seem very illogical if not weird.  So I am suspecting that it is just happening to me, but would appreciate if somebody could care to reproduce and see if it is actually a bug.Cause: HtmlHead title tag has textFix: Delete text in HtmlHead title tagSteps to reproduce and verify error:1.

help with error when using css friendly control adapter

I have installed the CSS friendly control adapters for my menus and treeview because the designer did the entire job in with <div><ul><li> instead of tables   so to adapt I installed the CSS adapter.
