Selecting and Highlighting Multiple Rows in a DataGrid

P: n/a
I am looking for an example that shows how to select and highlight
multiple rows in a DataGrid.

My DataGrid is part of a Web User Control which is contained in an ASPX
page.

I haven't been able to find any examples which demonstrate how to do
this.

My Code:

The ASPX Page

<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.cs"
AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="TestMultiSelect.WebForm1" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="WebUserControl1"
Src="WebUserControl1.ascx" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>WebForm1</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual
Studio .NET 7.1">
<meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
<meta name="vs_defaultClientScript"
content="JavaScript">
<meta name="vs_targetSchema"
content="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5">
</HEAD>
<body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
<uc1:WebUserControl1 id="WebUserControl11"
runat="server"></uc1:WebUserControl1>
</form>
</body>
</HTML>

Code Behind for ASPX page

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

namespace TestMultiSelect
{
/// <summary>
/// Summary description for WebForm1.
/// </summary>
public class WebForm1 : System.Web.UI.Page
{
private void Page_Load(object sender,
System.EventArgs e)
// Put user code to initialize the page here
}

#region Web Form Designer generated code
override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
//
// CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web
// Form
// Designer.
InitializeComponent();
base.OnInit(e);
}

/// <summary>
/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
/// </summary>
private void InitializeComponent()
{
this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);

}
#endregion
}
}

Web User Control

<%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false"
Codebehind="WebUserControl1.ascx.cs"
Inherits="TestMultiSelect.WebUserControl1"
TargetSchema="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5"%>
<TABLE id="Table1" cellSpacing="1" cellPadding="1" width="300"
border="1">
<TR>
<TD colSpan="3">
<div style="OVERFLOW: auto; WIDTH: 100%; HEIGHT:
200px"><asp:datagrid id="DataGrid1" style="Z-
INDEX: 102;
LEFT: 24px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 32px"
Height="120px"
runat="server"></asp:datagrid></div>
</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD></TD>
<TD align="center">
<asp:Button ID="CloseButton" runat="server"
Width="99px"
Text="Close"></asp:Button>
</TD>
<TD></TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>

Web User Control - Code Behind

namespace TestMultiSelect
{
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

/// <summary>
/// Summary description for WebUserControl1.
/// </summary>
public class WebUserControl1 : System.Web.UI.UserControl
{
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid
DataGrid1;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button
CloseButton;
SqlConnection myConnection;

private void Page_Load(object sender,
System.EventArgs e)
{
myConnection = new SqlConnection
("Server=localhost;uid=sa;pwd=preview;database=pub s");

if(!IsPostBack)
BindGrid();
}

public void BindGrid()
{
SqlDataAdapter dAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter
("SELECT au_id,
au_fname, au_lname FROM authors ",
myConnection);
DataSet dSet= new DataSet();
dAdapter.Fill(dSet, "authors");

DataGrid1.DataSource = dSet.Tables
["authors"].DefaultView;
DataGrid1.DataBind();

}

#region Web Form Designer generated code
override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
//
// CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET
// Web Form
// Designer.
InitializeComponent();
base.OnInit(e);
}

/// <summary>
/// Required method for Designer support - do not
/// modify
/// the contents of this method with the code
/// editor.
/// </summary>
private void InitializeComponent()
{
this.Load += new System.EventHandler
(this.Page_Load);

}
#endregion
}
}
I want to select the au_fname and au_lname fields (which I am going to
concatenate). The Web User Control has a Button which, when clicked,
should pass the selections to the calling page (a simple HTML page).
Clicking the button should also close the .ASPX page, and refresh the
calling page.

Is what I am trying to do reasonable, or is there a better approach? I
am a bit out of my depth here, and would really appreciate any kind of
help, especially code snippets.

Thanks!
