Replace user id with user name


I'm sure this has to be simple but so far I'm having problems finding a solution. I have two data tables:

T_Users (id, lname, fname, etc...)

T_EventDetails (id, user1, user2, user3, date, etc)

These tables are not associated with each other (pk, fk, etc) and are part of a larger system. The "user" fields in T_EventDetails are populated with the "id" data for the various users from a set of DDLs on the main page. The DDLs get their data from the T_Users table (DataValueField="id") and each row in T_EventDetails will have four user-related entries. This all works fine and I can output the data in a datagrid, etc. Problem is, I need to display the user names (fname lname) and not the user id values.

In the past (ASP 3.0) I have used a replace function to change this data but not sure how to do this in ASP.NET. Any ideas, examples, etc would be appreciated....thanks in advance.

You could use this SQL to get the names:

	user1_name = (SELECT fname + ' ' + lname FROM T_Users WHERE id = user1),
	user2_name = (SELECT fname + ' ' + lname FROM T_Users WHERE id = user2),
	user3_name = (SELECT fname + ' ' + lname FROM T_Users WHERE id = user3)
FROM 	T_EventDetails

Thanks for your quick reply. Tried the code as sent (changed values of course) in a code-behind and got this error:

 DataBinding: 'System.Data.Common.DataRecordInternal' does not contain a property with the name 'ID'.

 I know the T_Users table has an ID field so I am at a bit of a loss - any thoughts?


Thanks again...

Never mind - I figured it out - mssing the ID field in the overall SQL statement, not in the sub-queries.

 Thanks again, works great!! Big Smile

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.

Added prefix to form control id/name when in user control
I have noticed when including user controls that have form elements in a page, those form elements' IDs/Names are prefixed with the user control's ID and an underscore (_) or colon (:). For example, let's say you have a page that contains a user control with the ID "ctlControl". That control contains a textbox with the ID "txtSomething". The rendered HTML presents you with the textbox, but the name is now "ctlControl:txtSomething" (and sometimes it comes up as "ctlControl_txtSomething" -- I haven't figured out why it isn't consistent...but that is...
