Searching with codebehind and object datasource
Posted on 2006-06-30
I am binding a datalist control to an object datasource...
However, users need to be able to filter their search once the page loads.
I have 7 fields of data they can use to file, four dropdown lists, two checkboxes and a textfield....
Once they have selected all their filter search criteria (which could be one all or anything in between), I need to perform the search and rebing the new result to the datalist control.
1. How do I go about doing this?
2. Is this at all possible to do whilst untilisng an object datasource...
3.If so, how do I go about it
4. do i use the form field criteria of the object datasource and if so, how does that work, baring in mind that am using a datalist control
