A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

Entity framework simple question




First I am newbie using EF - so sorry on this basic question


I have a Project Table that relate to Company Table


When I Map with EF I Do not have property of CompanyId in the Project Object

But I have related Company Object


For example

Project p = new Project();

p.CompanyId è does not exist!

When I try addingit myself I get this error:

If I need just the Company id, and I don't want get it like

p.Company.CompanyId - because than the application try connect again to the DB and I don't want this, because I need just the CompanyId.

What the best regular way to get it?


A simple Data Modeling Question


I have a data modeling question that hopefully this fictious example will help explain.  My application is data driven and the classes reflect the tables to a large degree.   In this example my database has two tables:

  • VendorMaster with an int Primary Key of VendorID
  • VendorContact with an int Primary Key of ContactID

The VendorContact table also has a Foreign Key of VendorID in order to associate the contact with a specific Vendor.  In this example a Vendor can only have one contact.

My question is how to represent these two tables in terms of classes.  In my current design I have two classes:

  • VendorMaster
  • VendorContact

In order to represent the relationship between a VendorMaster and VendorContact, my VendorMaster class contains a property called VendorContact.

My questions are about the VendorContact class and how it represents the relationship between a VendorMaster and itself.

Option #1

The VendorContact class should contain an int property of VendorID

Option #2

The VendorContact class should contain a VendorMaster Property

I am not sure which option is the 'best' option to take. My concern is that if I go with option #2 that I would create a cyclical relationship between the VendorMaster and Vendo

Simple data binding question

Newbie binding question here: is it possible to bind a control in XAML to a StaticResource by passing in the key via a data structure? Basically something like this: <TextBlock Text="{Binding ImageKey}" /> <Image Source="{StaticResource ResourceKey={Binding ImageKey}}" /> <-- doesn't work   The TextBlock binding on the first line works correctly, it extracts the key of the StaticResource from my data structure and displays it correctly. What I'm trying to do is get the Image control to bind to the StaticResource with that name (which happens to be a BitmapImage).

Simple Viewstate question

Consider a page with asp textbox and a button. textbox's "EnableViewstate" property is set as "False". In page directive also i set the Page's "EnableViewstate" property as "False".

After the postback also that text box contains the same text ("This is sample text") which i have typed. I have set the view state in page for false. Then how the state is maintained?  whats the reason behind that? Thank you.

Simple but unusual SQL 2008 peer2peer replication concept and question

Hi, I am not an SQL expert, but have to set up 3 remote SQL databases that need to be synchronised with each other. This is unusual because the locations are tiny atolls in the middle of the Pacific.  Communication between them is by satellite only which has limited bandwidth and is expensive.  The total population (thats all the people) on each atoll is only 500.  There is likely to be a maximum of 40 potential users per atoll and each SQL database is for internet login authentication only (Radius).  So the databases are tiny and have a very low update rate. What is the simplest way to synchronise the databases?  Doing this just once each night at around 4:00am would be best.  Peer to peer replication sounded right, but I do not want our extremely limited bandwidth taken up by this traffic when all we need is for the databases to be synchronised by the next day.  Also we are running MS SQL 2008 R2 Workshop edition and I am reading that this does not support peer2peer replication. The hardware is a laptop - since hot moisture laden salty air is very corrosive for traditional servers and power is intermittant at best.  Each atoll gets an identical system. Can anyone suggest a solution or ideas?  I am happy yo answer questions.  Thank you.

Simple question about indexing

Hi, Let's say I have a table that looks like this: StudentID int, PK FirstName varchar(50) not null LastName varchar(50) not null Score tinyint not null My question is this: if I'll be using the "Score" column in my SELECT statements such as MAX(Score) or SCORE > 75, etc. do I need to create an index for the Score column? Thanks, Sam

Simple drill through action question


Im using the the below query as the condition for a Drillthrough Action

IIF([Load Date].[LoadDate].CURRENTMEMBER IS [Load Date].[LoadDate].LastChild, TRUE, FALSE)

I am attempting to confine this action to the last loaddate member. I'm thinking this is fairly easy to do, but I cannot seem to get it to work. I haven't been doing MDX for a couple years now so I'm probably missing something simple...? Thanks for any assistance.


Simple SqlDataReader question


Do I only need to close the datareader on mydr.Read()  or also when I Execute the SqlDataReader without using mydr.Read()?  Would this Close in the following example be unnecessary?

Using mydr As SqlDataReader = mycmd.ExecuteReader()
End Using

    Thanks in advance..


Gridview question


I have a page which as been working just fine for months, that is simply pulling SQL data to a dataset, and on the RowDataBound event, I am adding a new cell to the row, a hyperlink to another page which is based on text data in certain columns of the row. All of that is fine. This week I have been trying to figure out a way to add one more column based on a user request. They would like to have a checkbox column and a button that performs an act with each of the checked items. This value doesn't need to be stored anywhere, and is only used in the session to determine what rows this action is taken against.

I am a noob to asp.net, usually spending time in Winform apps, but trying to help someone out by providing web page access to some data. I have scoured the pages trying to sort out whether I need to rewrite the page and data access in some way but there seems to be many many different ways people have solved similar problems. I think I have gotten really close a few times but either end up with a checkbox which I cannot get the value for (by adding cells in the same code that adds the hyperlink), to adding a templatefield. In this attempt what happens is that if I keep autogeneratecolumns=true then my databinding blasts over the templatefields and if I set it to false, nothing happens on databinding.. 

I really apologize to the many advanced users who

Question regarding C# Paging Gridview


Dear Experts,

GridView question


I have a GridView. The data is displayed in TemplateFields: textboxes and dropdown lists. E.g. rows 5 and 7 have certain values selected in the dropdown lists of column 1. After I use filtering, still the same values are selected in rows 5 and 7, though because of filtering, different records are displayed in those rows. The same thing happens with TextBoxes.

Could you tell me how I could avoid preserving data after postback?

I tried to disable ViewState of the GridView or of the dropdown lists or textboxes, but that didn't help.
