Databinding with two datasources....

I have a page that displays a news article in a form view feeding off a
datasource that just picks up the id from a query string. I want to add
functionality for related links - so i created a stored procedure that takes
three parameters. On the page i have added a second datasource which calls my
stored proc, and spits out the results into a Repeater.

Currently however the two datasources are independant - my second data
source takes 3 parameters - one is the ID which i can get from the query
string but the other two are specific to the values of two fields in my form
view; relying on data from the first datasource.

So my question is as follows:
1) Which event should have the code to manipulate the second datasources
input parameters (i was thinking the onDatabound of the primary datasource;
would this be efficient)

2) can i programmaticall y change the input parameters of my second
datasource dependant on results of the first - if so how?

3) is the approach i am using an OK one? Is there a way of programatically
telling the system not to bother with doing anything ave with the second
datasource until we have filled its input parameters? i dont want it to go
through process the datasources... then when it hits my onDatabound procedure
have to go back and redo the processing of the second datasource - or am i
just not understanding things??

4) can anyone think of a better way of providing my related links?? is my
approach dense??

Regards
Owen

Ive got the basic idea behind DataBinding Expressions, but I have a couple of questions, Ok its four actually :) Q1.) It would appear that if you use Page.DataBind that all child controls and the page get bound to their respective DataSources, is this correct ? and if so why would you need to individually bind controls, why not jsut use Page.DataBind everytime?, Im sure there is a good reason why not but I cant think of one at the...

Can someone explain to me the difference between these two bindings? dim b as Binding b=New Binding(dsMyDataset.tblMyTable, "colMyColumn") b=New Binding(dsMyDataset, "tblMyTable.colMyColumn") They produce different behavior in my application. I know which one I must use, but I don't understand why.

We have been noticing that questions on vs.2005/2.0 don't appear to get much in answers so I'm reposting some questions posted by some of the programmers here in our organization that never got answered... In 1.1 we always did our own myDataAdapter.fills and we liked that control for lots of good reasons. Now the new DataSource (or is it a TableAdapter:Dataset) automatically fills the Gridview. How can we control that fill? In a...

Hi all, I may be missing something with how databinding works but I have bound a datasource to a control and everything is great, the control updates to reflect the state of my datasource when I update the datasource - awesome, but I have an issue with updating from a different thread. Here is my datasource, a person class that raises the PropertyChanged event: class Person : INotifyPropertyChanged {

L.S., Hello is there a way to implement 2-way databinding without using the datasources from dotnet 2.0. Why would you ask? Now that's simple. I've created an object model with BusinessObjects and I don't want to write an separate provider layer for the datasources. This is because I loose all the benefits of my objectmodel. Are there other developers who think this way?

Has anyone else noticed that the design-time support for databinding in custom controls in ASPNET2 sucks? At least for GridViews? So far I've spent going on two days trying to get the following simple statements to actually generate something at design-time: gridView = new GridView(); gridView.AutoGenerateColumns = true; gridView.DataSource = ; gridView.DataBind(); I have tried everything I could think of, or read about in four books...

Hello guys, im new to asp.net and im trying to get me used to it. I've managed to create webpages with detailviews, databinding and datasources. Adding or inserting data went very well and, after a while, very fast. Now i ran into a problem with accessing the data. I need to send an email to the administrator with the data the user has selected instead of calling the update method. Everything i've build up via the designer or the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
