GridVew Alternative

Hi Everyone,

I am just getting in ASP.net having come from a PHP background in terms of web dev. One thing I did alot of in PHP was creating a table which was a list of Request i.e The Table consisted of a Name, Email and Edit Column. The information was pulled from the database and populated. The edit column was a link field which appended the Row ID to the URL and posted the user to this url.

At this URL i.e. www.mydomain.com?uid=134 the code would go away and look for entry 134 in the db (Using PK). And return the data so that it could be edited in a form.

I have been toying with the GridView, but I seem to have to break it to make it work basically, so I wondered if someone could suggest a solution, or point me to a tutorial which may do similar to what I want. I am not overly keen on the Databound stuff as most of the information is pulled directly from Classes. But I am open to having my mind changed if I can see advantages.

Any help / advice would be great.

Kind Regards

James Proctor

Hi,

a few questions first:

In wich framework are you working in?

Do you know how to use the DOM in ASP.net and create your web controls from the server side?

There is an easy solution, that I personnaly use to do what you intend to do.

For a class that is the "recit" class, I have a collection of this strongly typed object, called Listerecits, that inherits from ArrayList.

and with a foreach loop, I create the elements of my table from the server side.

I even add a button, and on the click event of that button, I add an:
 new EventHandler(btnSelectioner_Click)
And because each buttons are unique, they get the ID (PK), of the table they come from, I can work further, and do, what I want on my button click event.

Here, I call, a function, that select, the selected element.
But,
you could do, an update, or delete all the same.

Hope this'll help!
Don't hesitate, if you have other questions!
//server side from here in C#:    
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        }
 
 
 
        foreach (Recit recit in VarSession.varlisterecit)
        {

Thanks for that, just what I was looking for, and a bit of re-asurance that not everyone used databound stuff.
