Page event sequence and Databinding question

Which is the event sequence when a gridview button (for update) is clicked
and the page is post back? I am also a bit confused when to use
..IsPostBack(). If my page data is changing maybe in every 10 or 20 seconds,
should I use .IsPostback? If not, then the gridviews databinding in the page
should be written in Page_Load or in the other events like
SelectedIndexCh anged, RowCommand where the click is handled?

TIA

I'm developing a sporting bet system, so players can send their betting slips
on some events (usually worldwide soccer events). The available events to bet
on, span a 3day period. But most bets are sent as the events are about to
start or maybe half an hour earlier. So, when an event has started, it should
go off the list, so noone else can select it. This means that the event list,
although dynamic, is pretty static at first and then it should appear as
dynamic as possible.

How should I deal with the data refreshing? Should I use .IsPostback in
Page_Load or not? Should I rebind ALL my gridviews only once in the Page_Load
event, or in every other gridview event like SelectedIndexCh anged,
RowCommand, RowUpdating, etc ? Also, should I use RowCommand (using the
commandname="se lect") or the SelectedIndexCh anged event? There is also a bit
of confusion here. Which of the above events fires first anyway? That's why I
need to know the page event sequence.

Also, I was thinking if it would be better to read the data from a XML file
(no READ database hits) which the AdminUser creates for the players to see.
This file would be recreated every time something changes (like if an event
has started, or a betting odd has changed). Is it a better scenario for my
case? Should I use caching of that XML data and how?

Uphhh... I know I've set so many questions that need answers...but that's
the kind of cloud inside my mind right now. I always want to follow best
practices from the beginning, that's why I like to study a lot before
starting off. Any help is appreciated.

TIA

I have an ASP.Net page on which there are serveral static controls (listboxes, radiobuttonlist and textboxes).

When the Submit button is clicked I need to save (in viewstate) the contents of the criteria controls so that I can recreate the dynamic DataGrid(s) in the LoadViewState (overloaded method).

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...

Hi, i have inherited a page from another user. The page is the target frame in a frameset. for some reason the whole page runs twice (page_load, init, etc. all run twice) I can't figure out how this is happening. there are no transfers or redirects that are occurring in the pages. the page runs thru all of its events then starts all over again. Trying to inspect the stack track doesn't help because when i get to the init the 2nd time,...

Hi, I have a form with textboxes, a search button and a gridview. The textboxes are filled with default values so that the gridview should return all rows but not before the user has had the chance to change some of the textboxes and has clicked the search button. How can I avoid the gridview displaying all rows before the search button was clicked? Any Ideas? Thanks Diane

I'm just wondering if this would work. Please note that I'm not asking *how* to raise events. I'm clear on that. What I'm not clear on is the sequence in which events are raised by custom controls relative to the hosting Page, and therefore if the following specific arrangement would even work. What I'm looking to do is dynamically insert multiple custom composite Web server controls onto a blank Page. This is no problem, I know how to do...

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,...
