find a particular column is bound column or template column no to find that particular column

please excuse me if iam wrong.

i found that bount columns values are directly renders to a <td>  where template columns create some controls inside the cell.

so you can check whether that cells[1].controls.count > 0 then it may be a template field.


correct me if iam wrong

Its never good to rely on undocumented details. If we decide to change an implementation detail in the next version then you app will break. What are you really trying to do?

When is a column not a column?
I have several extremely similar datawindows that I have to maintain that go against the same table. Recently, I had to add a column to that table, and also add the column to ALL of these datawindows that go against this table. I added the column to the first datawindow, set up the edit control style, etc. I then did a copy/paste of the columns edit control to the remaining dw's (of course remembering to first add the column in SQL). Everything (update props, column specs, column props) seems to indicate that the pasted column is linked to the column I selected, HOWEVER, when I...

Issue with Template Columns & Bound Columns while updating the data in a GridView control
Hi, I'm facing the below problem (In general, ObjectDataSource is driving me crazy ! ) I have a simple gridview control and an ObjectDataSource is used to populate the grid. I'm trying to update a row and the corresponding tableadapter methods & stored procedure are in place. Each row has 2 checkboxes and 2 textboxes in edit mode. When the change the values in edit mode and hit update, the checkbox values changed are saved into the Database properly, whereas the textbox values are not being saved. If the textbox column is a bound column then the column is updated with <NULL> in...

Bound columns and template columns in Gridview
Hello Everyone, In my gridview, I changed some of the bound columns to template columns, I noticed that the template column is not recognized inside the RowDataBound event method. The reason I changed the bound columns to template columns so that I can add the total column in the footer. I guess I cannot do that with bound columns. If I do e.Row.Cells[5].Text then  5th column is not recognixed inside the Rowdatabound event, but If i do e.Row.Cells[4].Text then  it is recognized. Please let me know what am I doing wrong. <asp:GridView ID="dgAgentActivity" runat="server" AutoGen...

remove a gridview column dynamically, removes controls in template columns
I have a interface with a treeview and a gridview. The gridview has two templatefields that handles insert/update/deletes. The gridview is handling editing of different tables so I create the other columns in the gridview dynamically as boundfields. The user selects the table to edit in the treeview. The problem I am having happens when the user selects a table to edit the second time. The code that executes removes all bound fields, (dynamically added when user selected the first table in the treeview), but not the two template fields, and then adds boundfields specifi...

Dynamic change the 'Read Only' in datagrid(template column/Bound column)
I create few template column and bound column in datagrid. One of the template column contain the StudentMark. I want to know how to change that column to (Read only) or "Not" (Read only) when click the edit button. It is based on a dropdownlist to determine to read only or not. I think i must use the template column, since i need to do the validation to the StudentMark. (For example, If select value '1' in dropdownlist, the "StudentMark" is become 'Read only' and select '2' become vice versa. I was success to bind the datagrid and "StudentMark" become a textbox...

Writing a column after column
Hi all, I need to consolidate columns of data available across different directories into a single excel csv file. Usually we write to a file row after row but for the current task I have, it would be convenient to write the file column after column. Is there a file writing mode for this? If not, I guess, I will have to write the matrix row by row and then take a transpose. Let me know what you guys think and if you could share some skeleton of code for something like this would be great. Thanks. -vijay vijay wrote: > I need to consolidate columns of data available acro...
