Finding controls in datagrid in user control

Hi, here's the scenario. I had a datagrid in a page, worked fine. I've moved the datagrid to a user control, and the update code I had does not work anymore.


In the datagrid, I have:



In the class for the user control, I have:


Protected Sub update_user(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridCommandEventArgs)


then later, as part of a loop that cycles through the field names - data_field(x):


Dim drop_down As DropDownList = CType(e.Item.FindControl(data_field(x)), DropDownList)
sql_comm.parameters.add("@" & data_field(x), drop_down.SelectedItem.Value)


This produces the irritating error on the line beginning with sql_comm:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

This is probably related to the datagrid control being placed in the user control, but I don't see why.


If you need more info I'd be happy to oblige!

Please disregard my post. (Is there a way to cancel posts?)

Seems that I've been solving my own questions before they're even approved for the forum!

The problem was NOT with the datagrid being placed in a user control. It works fine.

The issue instead was part of a case selection scheme I had setup without accounting for a particular case, so the control was simply not there.

My debugging had led me to believe the data_field(x) contained a particular value when in fact it contained something else. Manual debugging through error trapping brought out the problem and it's been resolved.

Thanks to anyone who considered the problem!

How do you control the placement of controls in a user define control
I have a user define control.  I put the control on the (C# Visual Studio 2008) page where I want them. When I run the program, the controls are all over the page.  How do I place them where they do not move form where I put them? You'll need to study the HTML output and see what it's producing, then start to look at how to do an HTML layout. hi, there are absolute and Relative position in html. I guess you must use relative position. For example, at design-time, you place a TextBox below an Image, at run-time, no matter what size is the image, the TextBox is alway bel...

User Control in a User Control
I have a first user control that contain a second user control. If I cahe the first user control can I still dynamically control the second one or it is cached with the first one therefore can not control it anymore? Thanks When your first control is cached, its rendered out and its output is stored in the cache. On every request to the page containing your control that can satisfy it from cache, the output will just simply be inserted - your first control will never be instantiated or run in that case, so the second one wont be either. Hope this helps,Mike VolodarskyProgram Manager...

controlling user controls
I'm starting an app. I'm using a usercontrol for a template. In my "template" I have a usercontrol that at times displays a login form. In this usercontrol is a link to the register page. Currently, my register page works by just calling my register user control in the main content area of the template. I'd like to cut out the register.aspx so that the link simply tells the other area on my page to display the register.ascx. So that I don't have several pages... just one default.aspx. How do I do this? I'm thinking the template.ascx will have a placeholder in the main...
