page life cycle events and dynamic content in gridview

9 New Member

I have a gridview that is filled with a datasource & template fields dynamically.
( that has to be done because i ask the user for a datasource)

anyway, i started out creating a static but empty grid. and added the template controls and datasource & activated grid.DataBind() in the page_load event.

that gave me all the info when the page loaded on screen.

now i have an edit and update buttons on each row and pressing the edit button starts the page cycle and recreated the grid including databind and then goes on to the grid_onedit event.

here i changed the grids editindex, and here i also save the grid row to session so i would have to old_row saved.

when the page loads i change some data and press the update button.

as it should, page_load starts and the grid is created and grid.DataBind() is activated and now the the grid_onupdate starts and i update the datasource and then do another grid.DataBind() (i do this so that changes are done to the grid)

well, it seems alright but it's not.

i don't like to do 2 databind events on the grid each postback and moreover, i dont think the way to save the old_row data should be via the session.
i'm sure microsoft or someone thought of a better idea.

the problem is that if i remove the first DataBind the old_row data is still not created when the onedit event is started and i have no data to take.

and worse still is that the update event isn't firing when i do this becuase the row that i pressed the update button have not been created yet.

so, i am asking some one who is expirienced with asp.net and dynamic gridview. what's the way to go here?

when is the appropriate event to do databind and how do i get the old and new record in the update event as i should.

I believe that you are stuck with this situation unless you use a disconnected database.

Hi all: I developed a web site, it passed various testing internally. When I put this site in production, I receive some error reports from this site saying "the viewstate is invalid for this page and might be corrupted". I am wandering what kind of client side problem may cause this error? Is it possible that user uses a browser which has local cache turned on all the time? Thanks for any suggestion.

When I navigate to the next page using Response.Rediect("MyNextPage.aspx") current page Page_Load event is called. What I may wrongly understood is that post back will happen whenever there is any server side event happens, resulting in Page_load event. Page_Load is also happening when I navigate to the next page. That means Page_load will always happen when I navigate to the next page. Please correct me If I have totally misunderstood...

Hi I have a GridView which includes the ability to delete rows. This works fine accept for when a naughty user decides to refresh the browser thereby posting the same delete command instruction. The problem with this is that the refresh will either delete another record or generate an exception, something like this: An error has occurred because a control with id 'ctl00$Main$UserGrid$ctl11$ctl00' could not be located

I want to build a set of compiled user controls to incorporate into a web site. The majority of user controls will be placed on specific web page and these controls would share a common interface. The interface would expect some sort of "end user identitifier" argument, perhaps a GUID.

hi, i would like to display a discreet message on all my pages indicating how long the server took to render the page. full tracing is not an option because it would freak out my non-technical users! i've looked around online and can find nothing to do this, or in the SDK docs. i thought .Net 2.0 would have something more out-of-the-box for this type of performance measuring but i can't find any. i was thinking about running a timer...

Hi there The problem of dynamically created controls vs viewstate is widely known one. To access values of controls they have to be recreated on Page_Load. Unfortunately it causes many problems in the following (rather common, I guess) scenario: The controls are created dynamically. Their number and contents

I have a page that inherits from a base page that is currently overriding all of the On* events. For the most part I'm accomplishing everything I set out to do with the inheritance, but I wanted to get a little more information to lock down what I think I know and also to answer a couple little questions. Given a base page, and the page inheriting it, as I understand it, the page lifecycle flows like this: 1) Page is requested

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...
