  • 1. questions about Controls.add
    Hi, In aspx file, i have a table: <asp:Table ID="table1" runat="server"> </asp:Table> In the code-behind, i create rows and cells: For i = 0 To 50 r = New TableRow() for j = 0 To 20 c(i, j) = New TableCell() r.Cells.Add(c(i, j)) Next Table1.Rows.Add(r) Next ... With this, the table is rendered perfectly (data are displayed in all rows and cells). Now i added this line just after 'r.Cells.Add(c(i, j))': Controls.Add(c(i, j)) Now i have no table anymore: data are dispayed the one after the other in the page. My questions are: 1) where is my table, why is is gone? 2) what's the difference between 'Controls.Add(c(i,j))' and r.Cells.Add(c(i, j)) in this case? Thanks for help Bob
  • 2. Retrieving Asp.treeview checked checkbox information
    Hi I am creating a website that reads some data from a database and presents it in an asp:treeview control. The tree I create dynamically using c#, and for the leaf nodes I enable checkbox (TreeNode::ShowCheckBox = true) Now my problem is to retrieve the checked information from the tree with a click of a button. I have to add that I am quite new to this. However, I have a good feeling of what is happening. So I believe that teh checked information is located on the client (web browser). Is it really that difficult to move (post?) that information to the server, and have the server act accordingly? I cannot seem to find that many easy options, unfortunately. If you give me an answer, could you please be elaborate, since many of the terms I am not used to yet. But not to say that any answer would be satisfactory, because I am really in trouble here.

  • 3. multiple datagrids on same page paging broken
    When I place multiple datagrids on a page, the paging breaks - no matter which grid's page link I click, it always posts back to the last grid on the page. Probably due to all the function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) generated on the page (one for each grid and named the same thing). Is there a way to get paging to work for multiple datagrids on the same page?

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
