Datagrid Postback issues

P: n/a
Hello all,

I have a Datagrid on a page. 1 column is a template column with a checkbox
(unbound). The rest of the columns are databound that are added
programatically.

If in the Page_Load I do:
If IsPostBack Then

else

end if

BIND DATA HERE

Then the grid displays correctly every time but the checkboxes are always
cleared so I can never check them.

If I do this...

If IsPostBack Then

else
BIND DATA HERE
end if

The grid posts back the first time but the second pass the grid is empty!

Any clues to what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

are you using the checkbox attribute AutoPostBack = True
make it False.

if it is required to make true then set the code
If IsPostBack Then else
BIND DATA HERE
end if

Thanks for the response but it still isn't working correctly... More
details....

Grid Definition...

<asp:datagrid id="dgEquipment" tabIndex="50" runat="server"
Width="664px" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#CCCCCC"
ToolTip="Equipment at this location" EnableViewState="true"
PageSize="9999" CellPadding="3"

<EditItemStyle Font-Size="Larger" Font-Names="Arial"></EditItemStyle>
<AlternatingItemStyle Font-Size="XX-Small"
Font-Names="Arial"></AlternatingItemStyle>
<ItemStyle Font-Size="XX-Small" Font-Names="Arial"
ForeColor="#000066"></ItemStyle>
<HeaderStyle Font-Size="Smaller" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Bold="True"
ForeColor="Black" BackColor="#D3F2FE"></HeaderStyle>
<FooterStyle ForeColor="#000066" BackColor="White"></FooterStyle>
<Columns>
<asp:TemplateColumn>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:CheckBox runat="server" AutoPostBack="false"></asp:CheckBox>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>
</Columns>
<PagerStyle Font-Size="Smaller" Font-Names="Arial"
HorizontalAlign="Left" ForeColor="#000066"
BackColor="White" Mode="NumericPages"></PagerStyle>
</asp:datagrid>

Private Sub InitGrid()

' Add the columns programmatically since we will eventually let the
users define which columns are displayed...
If dgEquipment.Columns.Count <= 1 Then

Dim col As BoundColumn

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderText = "Counter"
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Left
col.DataField = "Counter"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
col.Visible = False
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderText = "Make"
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Left
col.DataField = "MFG"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Left
col.HeaderText = "Model"
col.DataField = "MODEL"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Left
col.HeaderText = "Serial #"
col.DataField = "SERIAL"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right
col.HeaderText = "Install Date"
col.DataField = "INSTALL"
col.DataFormatString = "{0:d}"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right
col.HeaderText = "Warranty"
col.DataField = "Warranty"
col.DataFormatString = "{0:d}"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

col = New BoundColumn
col.HeaderStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center
col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right
col.HeaderText = "Agreement #"
col.DataField = "SerAgrNo"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Name = "Arial"
col.ItemStyle.Font.Size = System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit.XXSmall
dgEquipment.Columns.Add(col)

End If
End Sub

Private Sub LoadGrid()

' Equipment Grid

Dim equip As New clsEquip
equip.InitDBConnection(Session("ConnectionString") )
equip.Load(Session("CustNo"), Session("LocNo"))
dgEquipment.DataSource = equip

DataBind()

equip = Nothing

End Sub
With the following the grid displays all the data and the checkbox
correctly. But when I click any button on the screen any checks I have made
are cleared so I can't check and see what the user checked....

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

If IsPostBack Then

' Do some stuff here

Else

' Do other stuff here

End If

InitGrid()
LoadGrid()

Exit Sub
With this one the second time around the grid is empty except for the
checkbox column...

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
If IsPostBack Then

' Do some stuff here

Else

' Do other stuff here
InitGrid()
LoadGrid()
End If
Exit Sub
I am sure I am just missing something. Thanks in advance!
