Code to pass textbox values to gridview in

P: 18

I am having 3 textboxes and 1 gridview.

I want to pass (reflect) the values from textboxes to gridview.
I am not using the database here.
I want to save the data directly from textboxes into the gridview.

The asp code for the gridview goes like this:

<asp:GridView ID="GVWriteDR" runat="server" AllowSorting ="True" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" CssClass

GridLines="None" AllowPaging="True" align="center" Width="1%" PageSize ="5"

OnRowDeleting="GVWriteDR_RowDeleting" OnRowEditing="GVWriteDR_RowEditing"

OnSelectedIndexChanged="GVWriteDR_SelectedIndexCha nged" OnRowDataBound="GVWriteDR_RowDataBound"

<FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold ="True" ForeColor="White" />
<RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
<EditRowStyle BackColor ="#2461BF" />
<SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
<PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
<HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
<asp:ButtonField Text="Edit" />
<asp:ButtonField Text="Delete" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="EName" HeaderText="EName" />
<asp:BoundField DataField ="Dept" HeaderText ="Dept" />
<asp:BoundField DataField =SlNo." Headertext="SlNo." />

The Code behind for this goes like this:

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Data.OleDb;
using System.Text;

namespace ACMS.aspx_Pages
public partial class TestMail : System.Web.UI.Page
public string WDRConString = "";
public static DataTable dt;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
WDRConString = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ConnectionString"];
GVWriteDR.Visible = true;
dt = new DataTable();

protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
GVWriteDR.DataSource = dt;
DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
dr["EName"] = txtName.Text.ToString();
dr["Dept"] = txtDept.Text.ToString();
dr["SlNo."] = txtSlNo.Text.ToString();

GVWriteDR.DataSource = dt;

I am getting the runtime error,

System.ArgumentException: Column 'EName' does not belong to table .

at dr["EName"] = txtName.Text.ToString();

Please help me in solving this problem.

Thanks in Advance,

you need to add the columns to the table before you can add rows...
sample code
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DataTable dt = new DataTable();
  2.         DataColumn dc = new DataColumn("name");
  3.         dt.Columns.Add(dc);
  4.         dc = new DataColumn("field");
  5.         dt.Columns.Add(dc);
  6. //Now your table has defined columns
  7. // you can add rows...
  9.         DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
  10.         dr["Name"] = TextBox1.Text;
  11.         dr["field"] = TextBox2.Text;
  13.         GridView1.DataSource = dt;
  14.         GridView1.DataBind();

Thank you very much for the reply,its working now. :)

Now i want to insert the multiple row values into the gridview.
How to code for that so that i retain the previous values in the gridview itself and insert the new value into

the grid.

For Eg:

If I have 3 column, with column headers as - Name and Department.
I want my gridview to look as below before inserting into the database.

Name| Department
------ |-----------
ABC | Finance
AAA | Software

I want to insert a row value into the grid at teh click of a button, by restoring the previous row values.

Thanks in advance,

Cache the datatable.. when inserting new row.. just copy the cached datatable to your datatable and add a new row.. see to it that the cached datatable is not null..
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if (Cache["myTable"] != null)
  2.         {
  3.             dt == Cache["myTable"] as DataTable;
  4.         }
  5. else
  6. {
  7. //update the datatable from database 
  8. }
  10.         DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
  11.         dr["Name"] = TextBox1.Text;
  12.         dr["field"] = TextBox2.Text;
  14.         Cache["myTable"] = dt;
  16.         GridView1.DataSource = dt;
  17.         GridView1.DataBind();
If the datatable is null then get values from the database ....

I think that you should use the ViewState collection in situations like above instead Cache because the ViewState is only for each page and the Cache object is for an application.
