Refresh contents of User Control on MasterPage

Posted on 2009-05-11

Greetings all

I have a user control, on an Ajax PopUp control, on a MasterPage, providing an email facility (user clicks an icon and a form is displayed, etc). The user control reads a d/b table and populates a dropdown with names /email addresses (done on PageLoad)

When the user creates a new person, I would like their details to be added to the user control's dropdown list, ie, when the user clicks the "email" icon, and the "Email" form is popped up, the dropdoown will contain the recentl;y added address.

Where do I need to put the loading of the dropdown, in order for this to work?


In advance, thanks!!!

if you're creating a new person and loading the dropdown list during a single postback, then you can populate the dropdownlist on user control's page_prerender event. Or alternatively you may create a public method on user control that will update the dropdownlist content. Then you could call this method for example on button click event.

I hope I undesrtood your problem correctly!

Like this?

protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
    {
        base.OnPreRender(e);

        emailList = BusinessLogic.Business.GetEmailAddress();
        Session["mailList"] = emailList;
        ddlAddresses.DataSource = emailList;
        ddlAddresses.DataTextField = "Name";
        ddlAddresses.DataValueField = "Email";
        ddlAddresses.DataBind();
        ddlAddresses.SelectedIndex = 0;

        pnlMail.Enabled = ddlAddresses.Items.Count > 0;
       
    }

you can use the following as ASP.NET automatically bind events to methods that follows naming conventions Page_EventName
        protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            emailList = BusinessLogic.Business.GetEmailAddress();
            Session["mailList"] = emailList;
            ddlAddresses.DataSource = emailList;
            ddlAddresses.DataTextField = "Name";
            ddlAddresses.DataValueField = "Email";
            ddlAddresses.DataBind();
            ddlAddresses.SelectedIndex = 0;
 
            pnlMail.Enabled = ddlAddresses.Items.Count > 0;
        }
