Please help with a asp.net/vb.net answer.  I have a datagrid that on page load the dataset is loaded.  I have added a textbox(html) inside of the templateColumn/itemTemplate.  It will load every amount due but I need to capture a total of it in a textbox else where on the page.  I have never done this before and the only answers that I am find on the web are either c# or written for those that are dynamically filling data to the datagrid.

Is there a solution for this if your datagrid is load directly with the dataset, so I can call that column or the textbox and do a count?

Here is a snippet of the test code:

        Me.dgTest.DataSource = MyDS.Tables(0)
        Me.dgTest.DataBind()

        Me.txtSum.Text = Me.dgTest.Columns(3).Count.ToString

you would just loop through the rows summing column 3 ... then put the value in your text box ...

dim tmp as integer = 0
for each dr as datarow in MyDs.Tables(0)
    tmp += dr(3)
next
'tmp contains your total

for you are using paging then exclude the unseen rows.

you could also do this in the DataBinding event to catch only visible rows.

Hi,

Why don't you use the Compute function of the DataTable class.

oDataTable.Compute("SUM(ORDERED_QTY)","CUSTOMER_ID='Wallmart'")

Yelle,

I can't get the .Compute to come up on my page as an option.  What do I have to inherit or import?

Hi,

Strange I see the problem. But it seems to be an hidden property when you access the table using the dataset.


The following code works.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Dim oDataSet As Data.DataSet
        Dim oDataTable As Data.DataTable
        Dim oDataRow As Data.DataRow

        oDataTable = New Data.DataTable
        With oDataTable
            .TableName = "ORDER_LINE"
            .Columns.Add("CUSTOMER_ID")
            .Columns.Add("ORDERED_QTY", GetType(Integer))
        End With
        oDataRow = oDataTable.NewRow
        oDataRow("CUSTOMER_ID") = "El Cheapo"
        oDataRow("ORDERED_QTY") = 14
        oDataTable.Rows.Add(oDataRow)
        oDataRow = oDataTable.NewRow
        oDataRow("CUSTOMER_ID") = "El Cheapo"
        oDataRow("ORDERED_QTY") = 20
        oDataTable.Rows.Add(oDataRow)
        oDataRow = oDataTable.NewRow
        oDataRow("CUSTOMER_ID") = "Wallmart"
        oDataRow("ORDERED_QTY") = 8
        oDataTable.Rows.Add(oDataRow)
        oDataRow = oDataTable.NewRow
        oDataRow("CUSTOMER_ID") = "Wallmart"
        oDataRow("ORDERED_QTY") = 9
        oDataTable.Rows.Add(oDataRow)

        oDataSet = New Data.DataSet
        oDataSet.Tables.Add(oDataTable)
        MsgBox(oDataSet.Tables("ORDER_LINE").Compute("SUM(ORDERED_QTY)", "CUSTOMER_ID='Wallmart'"))
