Datagrid > DataList problem - Any clues?

P: n/a
Thanks in advance... (you can see a screenshot of what my form looks
like currently at http://www.juggernautical.com/DataGrid.jpg - the
Datalist is super-imposed in 'design view' but the DataGrid is the
actual running of the page) I've almost got this working (?) but need
a little help. I have an .aspx page that has a DataGrid listing
employees with a "Select" button that is to be used to populate the
DataList to the right of the DataGrid with additional employee
information. I'm basing this off the model found at
http://www.aspnet101.com/aspnet101/a...px?code=choose
.. this is a very good example of what I'm trying to do. I can populate
the DataGrid with no problem, but the "Select" button will not
populate the DataList. BTW, I'm using framework 1.1 and Code behind
(all listed below), in addition I'm using Broker DLL's to get my data.
Any clues?

Hi,

the code in Page_Load should be wrapped inside If Not Page.IsPostBack check
so that it's not databound on every request. Second is that I cannot see
ShowDetails method being wired to handle anything anywhere, and as you have
specified this in the grid:

<asp:LinkButton id="Select" Text="Details"
CommandName="ShowDetails" runat="server" />

I assume you want to populate DataList when this Button is clicked. Either
wire the ShowDetails method to Command event of datagrid
(OnCommand="ShowDetails)" when it is called when Button is clicked (and you
can check the CommandName if it macthes the expected one) or write
declaratively a click event handler of the Button directly.
