listview - Partha Mandayam replied to pravin kumar S on 15-Sep-08 09:56 AM

Here's an article showing how to bind a listview to a database. This will automatically update all values in the database

ListViewDataItem item2 = this.CreateDataItem(displayIndex + dataSource.StartRowIndex, displayIndex);
if (dataBinding)
item2.DataItem = obj2;
this.OnItemCreated(new ListViewItemEventArgs(item2));
if (dataBinding)
this.OnItemDataBound(new ListViewItemEventArgs(item2));
item2.DataItem = null; // <- See this?

After the call to DataBind(), the item's DataItem is set to null. This means that when calling InnerView's DataBind() on your handler, the ListView's container (the ListViewDataItem object) no longer has a valid DataItem, thus the <%# $> expressions can't be evaluated and the framework's event handler will throw an exception. Since the DataSource object in the inner ListView is still valid from the previous DataBind() call (before the ItemEditing event was fired), you can use reflection to remove the framework's handler before calling DataBind() (see bellow).  So, this means you can't call DataBind() on the inner ListView while having expressions relating to the container's DataItem on your .aspx file evaluated, and you can't call DataBind() on the outer ListView since that will obviously create and render a new inner ListView.

What remains is data bind externally. You can handle the outer ListView's ItemCreated event and do something like: 

protected void ItemCreated(object sender, ListViewItemEventArgs e)
var lvInner = (ListView)e.Item.FindControl("InnerListView");
lvInner.DataSource = DataBinder.GetPropertyValue(((ListViewDataItem)e.Item).DataItem, "propToEval");
Using reflection is way cooler (and lets you keep the <%# %> tags), but may have side effects since you'll be removing all handlers associated with the DataBinding event:  

protected void ItemEditing(object sender, ListViewEditEventArgs e)
var innerListView = (ListView)sender;
innerListView.EditIndex = e.NewEditIndex;

var pInfo = innerListView.GetType().GetProperty("Events", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance);
var fInfo = typeof(Control).GetField("EventDataBinding", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Static);

var handlerList = (EventHandlerList)pInfo.GetValue(innerListView, null);
var key = fInfo.GetValue(innerListView);

var handler = handlerList[key];
handlerList.RemoveHandler(key, handler);



with checkboxes - Perry replied to pravin kumar S on 15-Sep-08 10:24 AM

If you are planning to add checkboxes then set Auto PostBack property of your check box to true; Double cclick that checkbox.In server side code,OnCheckChanged event,write your db update code.
