I tried to run your code but they even lack runat=server. Try to make a better
effort before posting code.

This works fine :

<form runat="server">
<datagrid id="dg">
<asp:TextBox id="name" Runat="Server" />
<%=name.ClientID %>
</datagrid>

I just realized you are trying to use an asp.net datagrid control,
but are using html <datagrid...> syntax.

You can't insert a textbox inside a datagrid unless
you declare it in code as an ItemTemplate.

That's why you're getting the "Name 'name' is not declared." error.

Try this, if it suits you.

<form runat="server">
<asp:datagrid id="dg" runat="server">
</asp:DataGrid>
<asp:TextBox id="name" runat="Server" />
<br/>
<%=name.ClientID %>
</form>

If you want a textbox inserted inside a datagrid,
you'd do well to study Scott Mitchell's excellent datagrid tutorial :
http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/040502-1.aspx

The 9th part of the tutorial explains how to do what you want to do:

Unfortunately, not for me. It throws that error, and I don't know why.
Any clues?

Neo,

In these newsgroups is almost everybody helping for free (Including Juan).
You can take an answer as it is. I have earlier seen that the way you thread
answers in not inviting to give you answers. Probably am I not the only one
who has seen this.

I saw no parts in the help from Juan were I could add something, therefore I
don't understand your behaviour.

This message is meant to help you.

And there you go again missing the basic etiquette of newsgroup posting.
You give us 2 pages of code instead of isolating the problem to its bear
minimum in a controlled environment.
This is not to pester you but isolating the problem actually helps solving
the problem yourself and a reader will actually try to run the code (ic the
sample has a database dependency too)

If you want us to help you I suggest you change your attitude or read a newsgroup
posting FAQ. No flame intended.

Cheers,

Maybe when you acquire some manners.

That, sir, was uncalled for.


Yes, but so was your condescending tone, and your act of treating me
like someone who didn't even know the basics. If I was really doing my
DataGrids like that, do you think that finding the ClientID would really
be at the top of my priority list? I don't think so.

The first rule in creating any piece of code is to start with the
basics, and add things as you go along. As the saying goes, "you cannot
climb a mountain in a single step". I started out with a basic DataGrid,
and then added features (add, edit, delete, etc.) as I went along,
testing all the while to ensure I wasn't making major mistakes. Now I
have advanced to the point where I need to be able to provide the ID of
a form element to a piece of client-side JavaScript (for a pop-up DHTML
calendar). Since ASP.NET changes the ID that a form element is given to
something of its own choosing, I needed to pass this client-side ID on
to the JavaScript so it could fill the form field with the results.

My problem came when I tried to call this client-side ID. While this
works quite well:

<%= dg.ClientID %>

because "dg" is the ID of the DataGrid; I get a return of "dg", which is
the client-side ID of the Table that the DataGrid creates. However, when
I do this:

<%= formelement.ClientID %>

where "formelement" is the ID that I give an <asp:textbox />, I get the
error message no matter what I do. I cannot retrieve the client-side ID
of a form element once it is within a DataGrid, and I am stumped.

Since I have run into that problem, I have looked at over 500+ web pages
trying to discover why calling the client ID of a form element that is
within a DataGrid does not work for me. Simply put, I have tried my best
to do my homework ahead of time. To this date, I have not found an
answer. I tried to get an answer from this group by posting a stylized
chunk of code that *might* have saved me from having to post ~300 lines
of code, but instead I get a very condescending answer from you that
makes me feel like I'm a total idiot for having even THOUGHT about
posting to this ng (your reply, translated: "Go back to nursery school,
you can't even read yet!").

Since you treated me like I had just fallen off the turnip truck, like
some wet-behind-the-ears brat that needed to be treated with kid gloves
and spoon-fed the basics, I simply decided to hold up a mirror to show
you how it felt. Not a nice feeling, is it?

Next time, try not to assume the worst, ok? I tend to be like Clark Kent
- without the impressive alter ego - (insults don't affect me much), but
when you automatically assumed that I didn't even know the basics
(without even bothering to check my actual skill level or ask for my
source), I became just a wee bit pissed off. If I wasn't even getting my
DataGrid correct, I highly doubt that finding the ClientID of a form
element would even be on my radar. Hell, the asp.net parser would have
thrown errors for the DataGrid long before it would have complained
about my attempts to find the ClientID of a form element. As an MVP, you
should have known this.

Cheers.

I saw no parts in the help from Juan were I could add something, therefore I

This message is meant to help you.

It wasn't so much *what* he said, Cor. It was *how* he said it.

He:
• Automatically assumed that I knew NOTHING, based on an intentionally
short snippet (~6 lines) of code
• Didn't even ask for my full source, to see if his assumption was
correct or not
• Pointed me toward docs that I would have *had* to master long before I
got to this stage ("you're an idiot, go back to the basics!")

Yes, there are a lot of newbies in these ng's, but I am asking a very
specific question that requires being able to do a whole bunch of things
correctly first (including correctly creating a DataGrid). If I wasn't
doing my DataGrid's correctly, the ASP.NET parser would complain about
*that* long before it complained about my attempts to retrieve the
ClientID of a form element.

Perhaps I got a little rough with him, but he could have handled things
a lot differently as well. I'm not an idiot, and I've tried my best to
do my homework (15+ Google searches and 500+ web pages) before I turned
to these ng's. I might not be an MVP, but that's no reason to treat me
like a simpleton.

You already started this thread by claiming that you had

So, this is the *second* time in this thread that you are unfair to MVPs.

You have some sort of "MVPness envy" and lashed out angrily

I just realized you are trying to use an asp.net datagrid control, but
are using html <datagrid...> syntax.

You can't insert a textbox inside a datagrid unless you declare it in
code as an ItemTemplate.

That's why you're getting the "Name 'name' is not declared." error.

Try this, if it suits you.

<form runat="server">
<asp:datagrid id="dg" runat="server">
</asp:DataGrid>
<asp:TextBox id="name" runat="Server" />
<br/>
<%=name.ClientID %>
</form>
If you want a textbox inserted inside a datagrid,
you'd do well to study Scott Mitchell's excellent datagrid tutorial :
http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/040502-1.aspx
The 9th part of the tutorial explains how to do what you want to do:

Then I, too, will try to keep it short.

Whatever. I had posted a *symbolic representation* of what I was trying
to do (~6 lines of hyper-simplified pseudo-code), and from that he
assumed I was a noob, a total newbie. He didn't ask for my source,
didn't confirm if what I posted was a cut-and-paste from my source
(which it wasn't).

Hell, my original question never even got answered. I should have just
posted my full source in the beginning (all ~300 lines, just to *prove*
that I am "doing the basics" correctly), and none of this would have
ever happened. Mea Culpa. I learn something new every day.

I'm going to post my last comment on this thread.

re:
(When you want to know what I did not like. You are in my opinion feeding in that an
anti MVP behaviour. There is in my opinion no need for that).
Cor,

Look at his very first post to this thread :

---000---
"About 25+ web sites I visited recommend..."

"why did the other 25+ MVP's (who recommended this method)
also get it wrong?"

As a hint, here are a few URL's where it gives the exact method that
fails for me:
http://www.syncfusion.com/FAQ/aspnet/WEB_c5c.aspx (#28.10, link doesn't
work)
http://www.startvbdotnet.com/aspsite...s/default.aspx
http://www.thecodeproject.com/aspnet...in_asp_net.asp
http://youngpup.net/2004/distro (second scrollbox)
http://www.ondotnet.com/pub/a/dotnet...t&x-order=date
---000---

That is, clearly, an attempt to smear MVPs by
claiming that the advice we give is "wrong".

Now, check to see exactly how many of the sites he posted
links to are run by MVPs. I'll save you the trouble : exactly none!

His response to that ? "Okay, so I exaggerate a little."

Then, his next comment is : "As an MVP, you should have known this.",
trying -again- to smear MVPs in the worst possible way by implying
that I, an MVP, should have known about code problems in code that
he had not posted yet.

Then, he erupts with : "I hope you don't mind putting
your big mouth where your (probably even bigger) ego"

To finalize, he spits this : "I might not be an MVP,
but that's no reason to treat me like a simpleton."

Those quotes reveal a tendency to smear MVPs, and while I've seen
comments like those come and go, these were the last straw for me.

Cor, *nobody* has treated him like a simpleton. I certainly didn't.

I offered an explanation. If he felt it was too simple an explanation,
pointing that out would have sufficed, without the need to repeatedly
smear neither me nor my fellow MVPs.

So, that's it. This is my last comment.

I'm off to try to mend my nice summer sunday.
It's such a beautiful sunny day, too !

level of* an MVP..."

I have nothing against MVP's. My first mention was that I had gone to
many, many sites, a number of whom had articles from MVP's. Probably a
badly worded statement, mea culpa. The second mention was to point out
that I am not close your skill level yet, but I'm also nowhere near a
beginner's level. I know the basics well enough.

I would also like to make a partial apology. While I don't believe I
overreacted, I do believe that my reply was a bit too much of a personal
attack. To use a metaphor, I lunged when I should have parried. For
that, I apologise about the "big mouth" and "ego" statements.

Juan does not know you. He tried to help you. I really don't know what
that has to do with that he is awarded as MVP or the way you find that
he threats you.

You need an answer and in the way you write now, you will probably
never get it from a newsgroup.

This is the last time I give you this advice any reply on this will
not be answered by me.


I dont think I posted this to this thread yet, if I did I apologize for the duplication. But I feel its very
appropriate:

Apology accepted.

It takes a good man to recognize a mistake and amend it.

I hope that others don't continue to post to this thread,
and that it dies peacefully, except for a possible answer
to your code problem.

Now, I'm *really* off to enjoy the last of today's sunshine.

Please keep that out of this discussion.

You already started this thread by claiming that you had
checked "25+ MVP sites" when -actually- *none* of the
sites you linked to are MVP sites.

So, this is the *second* time in this thread that you are unfair to MVPs.

You have some sort of "MVPness envy" and lashed out angrily
at me imagining an attitude that only exists in your mind as a
way to compensate for your having a hard time with some code.

If you remember my reply I was under the impression that you were a beginner
too (which you are not).
The only thing Juan did was point you to a tutorial cause he thought also
you didn't grasp the basics.
And there is no need to post +300 lines of code so we can repro. Only the
minimum code that shows the problem is what we want.

I read in another answer that we have to keep the discussions just technical.
Quit true. But if someone starts to get personal he has the right to defend
himself/react.
I do this actualy in place of Juan who better keeps out of this IMO. You
probably wont agree but I think an apology is in order.

Cheers,

Then I, too, will try to keep it short.

He:
. Automatically assumed that I knew NOTHING, based on an *intenti
onally*
short snippet (~6 lines) of code (to save having to post ~300 lines)
. Didn't even ask for my full source, to see if his assumption wa
s
correct or not
. Pointed me toward docs that I would have *had* to master long b
efore I
got to this stage ("you're an idiot, go back to the basics!")
It wasn't so much *what* he said as *how* he said it.
Go and spread your negative energy somewhere else.

Whatever. I had posted a *symbolic representation* of what I was
trying to do (~6 lines of hyper-simplified pseudo-code), and from that
he assumed I was a noob, a total newbie. He didn't ask for my source,
didn't confirm if what I posted was a cut-and-paste from my source
(which it wasn't).

Hell, my original question never even got answered. I should have just
posted my full source in the beginning (all ~300 lines, just to
*prove* that I am "doing the basics" correctly), and none of this
would have ever happened. Mea Culpa. I learn something new every day.

If you haven't solved the problem than I can try to run your code. The code
you posted has lots of dependancies (user controls,database,...)
Can you strip out these so we can repro the problem?

Let me know if you have any more questions..

Cheers,

This works:

<form>
<asp:TextBox id="name" />
<%= name.ClientID %>
</form>
But this DOES NOT work:

<form>
<datagrid id="dg">
<asp:TextBox id="name" />
<%= name.ClientID %>
</datagrid>
</form>
and throws an error of:
Compilation Error
Compiler Error Message: BC30451: Name 'name' is not declared.
Any ida why???

TIA

The code, <%= name.ClientID %>, won't work since TextBox.name is a child of a
some DataGrid child. It will not have the "name" id but the "ClientID".
However, I tried he following:

....
<%= (dg.FindControl("name") as TextBox).ClientID %>
....

This compiled and ran successfully. However, the ClientID did not appear in
the TextBox!

Perhaps, you can not get the ClientID inside of the DataGrid! I was able to
get the ClientiD after the DataGrid code but not inside of the the DataGrid
with the code:

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
<asp:DataGrid id=DataGrid1 style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 80px; POSITION:
absolute; TOP: 80px" runat="server" DataSource="<%# dataSet11 %>"
DataMember="users" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
<Columns>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="name" SortExpression="name"
HeaderText="Name"></asp:BoundColumn>
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="ClientId">
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server"><%=
(DataGrid1.Items[0].FindControl("TextBox1") as TextBox).ClientID
%></asp:TextBox>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>
</Columns>
</asp:DataGrid>
</form>
<div><%= (DataGrid1.Items[0].FindControl("TextBox1") as TextBox).ClientID
%></div>
