  • 1. WRAP property in DataGrid doesn't work in IE
    Hi. I set WRAP property of ItemStyle in DataGrid to False, but still can see text wrapping in IE. My Code look like this: <ItemStyle Wrap="False" CssClass="list"></ItemStyle> When I open my application in IE, this property has no effect. The created source look like this: <tr class="list" nowrap="nowrap"> It adds wrap property to <tr> element, not to <td> When I open my application in Mozilla, everything looks fine and a source looks like this: <td align=center valign=middle NOWRAP> Did anybody experience similar problem? Is that a bug in the DataGrid web control?
  • 2. DataGrid - modifying data value for display
    I have a value in a column within my db that is numeri e.g. 0,1,2, etc. and I want to display the text enumeration within a data grid, e.g. red, green or blue. I'd like to put inline code within a template column in the HTML side, but I'm not sure how I can get at the underlying column data value. Do i access the dataset within the inline code? Can I set up an enum somewhere on the page?. Is there some other way of doing this? I thought this would be simple.
  • 3. Setting style properties in datalist depending on DB-content
    Hi newbie here, Is it possible to set for example the color of some data in a datalist which is bound to an SQLDatareader depending on what data is in the current record? Is there an event where i can read the current db-record and set the color of the text??
  • 4. Returning to a bookmark on a page?
    I have got a search button in the middle of a page. Above the page I have search conditions which the user can change. Below the button I have a DataGrid that shows the search results. When the user click the button, an onclick event is fired on the server that populates the DataGrid. When the page re-appears with the search results, it always appears showing the very top of the page, and the user then has to scroll down to see the results. Is it possible to position the page (using a bookmark ?), so that the bottom of the page, i.e. the search results, are the first thing a user sees when the results are returned? Any ideas? Thanks, Mike.

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
