hello hello!

I am trying to create a table which will have dynmic additions to rows, the cells in the row will have textboxes as well.
Then the user clicks on "Add new Row" the row gets added to exisitng table. The key is that the information typed in previous rows should not disappear.
There is  "SAVE" button in the form as well. when the user clicks on this button the data in each row should be inserted in the database  one by one. Thus the Row should accessed programitically.


I have the below code called at LinkButton Click and
    Protected Overrides Sub LoadViewState(ByVal earlierState As Object)
        MyBase.LoadViewState(earlierState)
        'If Not ViewState("TableRow") Is Nothing Then
        If ViewState("TableRow") = True Then
            createTable()
        End If
Public Sub createMyTable()
        Dim rowCtr As Integer
        Dim cellCtr As Integer
        Dim t As TextBox
        Dim rowCnt As Integer = tblDashboard.Rows.Count
        If rowCnt < Session("NewCntRow") Then
            rowCnt = Session("NewCntRow")
        End If
 
        For rowCtr = 1 To rowCnt
            Dim tRow As New TableRow
            tRow.Height = 50
            Me.tblDashboard.Rows.Add(tRow)
            Session("NewCntRow") = tblDashboard.Rows.Count
            For cellCtr = 0 To tblDashboard.Rows(0).Cells.Count - 1
                t = New TextBox
                't.EnableViewState = True
                't.ID = "txt" & cellCtr
                Dim tCell As New TableCell
                tRow.Cells.Add(tCell)
                tRow.Cells.Item(cellCtr).Controls.Add(t)
            Next
            ViewState("TableRow") = True
        Next
 
    End Sub

   Protected Overrides Sub LoadViewState(ByVal earlierState As Object)
        MyBase.LoadViewState(earlierState)

        If ViewState("vwPlanRow") = True Then
            createPlan()
            'ViewState("vwDashRow") = False
        End If

        If ViewState("vwDashRow") = True Then
            createDash()
            'MyBase.LoadViewState(earlierState)
            'ViewState("vwPlanRow") = False
        End If

    End Sub


Then CreatePlan and CreateDash sub creates table row straightforward stuff.

Linkbutton events
    Protected Sub lnkPlan_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        If Not ViewState("vwPlanRow") = True Then
            createPlan()
        End If

    End Sub

    Protected Sub lnkDash_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lnkDash.Click
        If Not ViewState("vwDashRow") = True Then
            createDash()
        End If
    End Sub

Why you have repeated code of creating Dash & Plan in LoadViewState function. When you are creating the tables on button click.

Protected Overrides Sub LoadViewState(ByVal earlierState As Object)
        MyBase.LoadViewState(earlierState)

        If ViewState("vwPlanRow") = True Then
            createPlan()
            'ViewState("vwDashRow") = False
        End If

        If ViewState("vwDashRow") = True Then
            createDash()
            'MyBase.LoadViewState(earlierState)
            'ViewState("vwPlanRow") = False
        End If

    End Sub


In the above function you are calling same methods createPlan & createDash, rest of the code is commented, how you are loading the old state in this?

I feel this will create both the tables. To retain the original values you can try doing the viewstate of tblDashboard as true & comment all code in LoadViewState().

there are two tables that why i had to use this otherwise it only creates one table and clears teh second table.

Is there any other way to achieve this., i needt o two table either datagrid,gridview, table who care
the user should be able to add the data one by one (dynamic row generation) and than click on SAVE button to save complete data on the form
