How to show firstname & lastname in GridView

Hi expert,

I have a girdview and I have a boundfield, how I can show firstname and lastname together in one column, they  are fields in database table,  when user click on name, it should sort by lastname.

<asp:BoundField DataField=lastname" HeaderText="Name" SortExpression=lastname" />

I didn't use sqldatasource control.

Thanks in advance.

you could put them in a template field
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="lname" SortExpression="lname">
                    <EditItemTemplate>
                        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("fname") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("lname") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                    </EditItemTemplate>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("fname") %> '></asp:Label> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("lname") %>'></asp:Label>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>

can I just put one lable? why it doesn't work. I like "," between first and last name, I don't need edit them.

<ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("lname")%>,<%# Bind("fname")%>'></asp:Label>
 </ItemTemplate>

if you don't want to use multiple labels then you could use this below, or you could just place a comma between the labels.
<ItemTemplate>
                    <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lname")%>, <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "fname")%>
                    </ItemTemplate>

thanks, it works, but when I click on Name and try to sort, it said

"The GridView 'gvCustomers' fired event Sorting which wasn't handled"


 <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Name" SortExpression="lname">
                     <ItemTemplate>
                                <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lname")%>, <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "fname")%>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>

I didn't use sqldatasoure control, I used datatable to bind gridview, it looks like I can not use autosort, I found code online and I copied them, it works now, thanks.

Protected Sub gvCustomers_Sorting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewSortEventArgs)

            Dim DataTable As DataTable
            DataTable = gvCustomers.DataSource

            If Not IsDBNull(DataTable) Then

                Dim DataView As DataView
                DataView = New DataView(DataTable)
                DataView.Sort = e.SortExpression & " " & ConvertSortDirectionToSql(e.SortDirection)

                gvCustomers.DataSource = DataView
                gvCustomers.DataBind()

            End If
        End Sub
        Private Function ConvertSortDirectionToSql(ByVal SortDirection As SortDirection)

            Dim newSortDirection As String = ""

            Select Case SortDirection

                Case SortDirection.Ascending
                    newSortDirection = "ASC"
                Case SortDirection.Descending
                    newSortDirection = "DESC"

            End Select

            Return newSortDirection
        End Function

hmm, honestly i don't program manual sorting much, and I can't seem to reproduce your problem, you may want to post that issue as a new question.
