On debuggng I fiound out that ItemDataBound fires for header only and not for Item and AlternatingItem private void grdSelectionList_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e) { if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem ) { if (e.Item.Cells[2].Text == "0") { e.Item.Visible = false; } } Any help on this will be appreciated.
  • 2. How-to link 2 Detailsview
    Sorry for a very basic question. I'm new in ASP.NET programming . Is there a way to link 2 different DetailsView controls, each one bound to a differet SQLServer table. Can I get an example in VB.NET? If I use a DropdownList instead of the first DetailsView I can reference the current selected value as <asp:parameter .... PropertyName="SelectedValue" ... But what about DetailsView controls? -- bruno

  • 5. Auto Postback Handling in controls
    Having trouble handling postbacks when they are coming from an asp:textbox auto postback and/or a button click. Is there a way to distiguish between the two? Details: ..Auto postback comes from a text box when user tabs off the box (AutoPostback="True"). this text box exists on an ascx page. this causes a recalculation of the page. Atlas is being used. ..there is a save button on the aspx (aspx hold 2 separate controls). if the user does not tab off the box, but wants to save the page, the postback from the text box is run first. this causes the user to click the save button twice; the second click actually fires the click event which is captured. ..i have tried various option including callback functions onkeyup to recalc the page, but the Atlas appears to interfere ..i need to prevent this double-click on the save button. Any advise will be appreciated. Thanks.

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
