Databinding is late!

The controls in my form are bounded to a datasource, including textboxes,
comboboxes, etc...
Something lame happens: In runtime, the last focused control before clicking
on my save button, doesn't have its datasource bounded value refreshed with
the new data inputed. I think the control's LostFocus event it's not properly
fired when I click a ToolStrip button, and the databinding is not updated.

I came with the following piece of code on the Save function to solve this
problem:

if (this.ActiveCon trol != null && (this.ActiveCon trol is TextBox ||
this.ActiveCont rol is ComboBox || this.ActiveCont rol is MaskedTextBox))
this.ActiveCont rol.DataBinding s[0].WriteValue();

It works fine. I just wonder if there's a better and cleaner way to solve my
problem; a property or something.

Thanks and happy chrtistmas.

We had the same problem with our application... Our solution was to call
Form.SelectNext Control as it applies a value when leaves the control

I know, not a clean one but i didn't find anything better. Unfortunately
..NET's binding mechanism sucks badly :(

By the way, in my app i came across another stupid issue with bindings -
if you have a bound text box and it's active control on the form, and
you activate another form, then go back to the first form and type
something in that active text box, it looses binding, i.e. whaterver you
type in it will no longer go to the dataset.

The workaround i found was to reactivate the text control when form
becomes active again:

void form_Activate(. ..)
{
form.ActiveCont rol = null;
form.ActiveCont rol = textBox1;
}

For example, say I have an object named ObjectName. In the code behind, I can use this fine, but the following will cause the error I...

Hi, I have a UserControl containing some controls of which one is a ComboBox. All the InternalControls are Private and some are allowed to be accessed through Public Methods.

Hello to all, I want to know if DataBinding in asp.net 2,0 is better than to fill up the values of the controls of the following form: this.miControlTextBox.Text = valorParaControlTextbox; Performance with databinding is good in asp.net 2.0 ? Would you prefer: databinding or set value to Text property of control ?

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,...
