  • 1. Datagrid, formatting, carriage returns
    It appears as though, in the transition from a query to the datagrid I am losing the carriage returns in an address field which I would like to maintain for the purposes of a Word merge. Here's the stored procedure. I have to Cast the data from text to varchar in order to replace the @@ characters at the beginning of the address field. But even if I don't do that and not cast it, I still lose the carriage returns. Ideas? Thanks. CREATE Procedure sp_UTL_MGAttorneyGroupMerge @sAttorney Varchar(50), @sGroup Varchar(50) As Select ContactName=Case FullName When '' Then CompName Else FullName End, Replace(Replace(Cast(AddrLines As Varchar(500)),'@@',''),' ',Char(10)+Char(13)) As AddressLine >From Contacts Inner Join ContactCategories ContactAtty On ContactAtty.Contacts = Contacts.Contacts Inner Join ContactCategories ContactGroup On ContactGroup.Contacts = Contacts.Contacts Where ContactAtty.Category = @sAttorney And ContactGroup.Category = @sGroup Order By Contacts.LastName
  • 2. Styling DetailView or FormView
    Does anyone have sites or references on applying layout and style to DetailView and/or FormView controls? It just seems like microsoft made these a bit rough to apply style sheets to. DetailView you can apply a style to the label, but to format the data you have to apply a format to the row (which I'm assuming would be there, and not desireable, when it switches to edit view) The formview layout seems just wrong. prompt control <br/>? How do you format the prompt to be a consistent width or on top of the controls, etc. Leaving you to manually change the HTML for *3* versions of the same form? Also is does anyone know if there is an easy way to add new styles (of your own design) to the list of styles supplied by Microsoft? Say to use your color scheme.
  • 3. Setting Hyperlink URL in Gridview
    I have a gridview in which I include a hyperlink column. That link points to a document whose name is in the "urllink" field in the record for that row. I know that I can use the following to link to the appropriate document: DataNavigateUrlFields="urllink" But how do I code that if I want to put all the documents in a "docs" subdirectory? Wayne
  • 4. Basic formatting for HTML text in ASP.NET 1.1 ?
    Hi all, Is there a way for a user of a website to control the basic font size/colour of text, then upload it into a HTML text page in ASP.NET 1.1 ? For example, I want a user to log into the website, and be able to type in text, give it a colour, fontsize and basic layout, etc. The hit submit, and the text will be available to view through the browser? Cheers, Jack.

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
