  • 1. TreeListView
    In ASP.NET 2.0, is there any way to create a TreeListView type control (i.e. a multicolumn TreeView that can be databound). I've searched all over the net and can't seem to find a definitive answer. Many thanks.
  • 2. how to make message appear after record is inserted?
    Hello, Just after the new record is inserted in the database using a Detailsview control, i would like to display a short message "the record is inserted". In the aspx file, i defined a hiddenfiekd: <asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" Visible="false" /> In the code-behind: Protected Sub DetailsView1_ItemInserted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs) Handles DetailsView1.ItemInserted HiddenField1.Visible = True HiddenField1.Value = "record inserted" End Sub My problem is that nothing appears. It's due to the automatic postback, i think. Any way to make the message visible? Thanks Jan
  • 3. Derived BulletedList
    Hi I want to make a simple modification to the BulletedList control. I would like the control to render with a DIV element wrapped around it, e.g. <div id="MessagesList1" class="messages"> <ul> <li>Item 1</li> </ul> </div> The control including the div should only render if the BulletedList contains items. I've had a go at overriding the render method protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer) { if (!DesignMode) { if (this.Items.Count > 0) { writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Class, "messages"); writer.RenderBeginTag(HtmlTextWriterTag.Div); base.Render(writer); writer.RenderEndTag(); } } else { base.Render(writer); } } This works in the browser but It doesn't seem quite right in DesignMode. I get the following error: Error 1 Element 'ListItem' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site. Also it would be better i think if the control ID was fixed against the div tag, not the UL or OL. What would be my best approach here? Thanks Andrew

Can I use OnTextChanged in JavaScript for TextBox

try this:
set the "OnChange" attribute for your server side control 
to your js function in the onload event of your page's

1.JavaScript for OnTextChanged event.


I have created a web-based file manager. Now I'd like to watch a folder for 
changes, and when a change occurs I'd like to refresh my page.
Okay. So I have created a FileSystemWatcher set on the folder I need to 
watch. It works fine. The problem occurs when I need to trigger an automatic 
So I added two handlers - OnChanged and OnRename, in the same class as my 

In the handlers I tried to say Response.redirect(mypage) to force the 
refresh, but the error I got was: "Cannot redirect after HTTP headers have 
been sent."

So I tried to change the text of some textbox instead
<asp:textbox id="txtFileSystemWatcher" 
OnTextChanged="javascript:RefreshPage();" Visible=true  Width=500 

with this handler:
Private Sub OnChanged(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As 
    txtFileSystemWatcher.Text = "FileSystemWatcher: " & "File: " & 
e.FullPath & " " & e.ChangeType
End Sub

and add an OnTextChanged client-side event-handler which looks like this:

function RefreshPage() {
    __doPostBack('txtFileSystemWatcher', '');

which would force the refresh. However, now I have the following error:
BC30456: 'javascript' is not a member of 'ASP.BrowseFiles_aspx'.

So I changed the HTML to
<asp:textbox id="txtFileSystemWatcher" OnTextChanged="RefreshPage()" 
Visible=true  Width=500 Runat=server></asp:textbox>
and now, sure enough, I get
BC30456: 'RefreshPage' is not a member of 'ASP.BrowseFiles_aspx'.

I also tried in OnLoad of the page to register the event with
txtFileSystemWatcher.Attributes.Add("OnTextChanged", "RefreshPage()")

but it still does not work.

What am I missing here, please ?

Thank you, Alex 

2.Accessing Textbox inside a Template column using javascript

I am having a datagrid with a template column. Inside the template column I
have a textbox and an image button. On click of the image button, I want to
call a javascript function, where the textbox value has to be taken.

Since the textbox is inside the datagrid, how can I access the Textbox in a
javascript function?

what is happening now is that if I give document.frmname.textboxname then it
won't recognise because for textboxes in each row of the datagrid is
internally given a different name.

can you please assist me regarding this?

Thanks & Regards,

4.get Textbox Value in datagrid using JavaScript

Hi, All:

I have a datagrid that embedded 3 textbox using TemplateColumn. When
the user key in value in the first textbox, I need to check to see if
this value is between the the values in other 2 textboxes. I know I can
postback to server side and using datagrid findcontrol to get values of
these 3 textboxes and compare them. But it kind of combersome cause
every change in textbox 1 I need send back to server.

My question is how can I get other 2 textboxes values in the same row
of textbox1 using Javascript? I am using onChange function for
textbox1. Is it doable? any example?

Thanks a lot
