bind databox to table field programmatically

Hello,
I have a user control built  using Visual Studio 2005 on VB.NET and a SQL 2008 backend.
In this user contron, i have a sub coded to check to verify promo codes.  Upon promo code verification, i would like to add a discount to an event ticket price.

Below, please find my sub code:
------------
 Protected Sub btnVerifyPromos_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        ' Protected Sub btnVerifyPromos_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs)
       
        'Handles CVPromoCode.ServerValidate
               
        ' Creates myConnection as a new sqlconnection and sets it equal to DSN_PROD
        Dim myConnection As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("DSN_PROD").ConnectionString)
     
        myConnection.Open()

        ' Build a sql statement string    
        Dim query1 As String = "Select PromoCode, DiscountValue FROM tblPromoCodes WHERE PromoCode = @PromoCode"

        ' Initialize the sqlCommand with the new sql string.  
        Dim Command1 As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(query1, myConnection)
       
        ' Declare txtPromoCode As TextBox and find in the form.
        Dim txtPromoCode As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtPromoCode"), TextBox)
        Dim lbl_Discount As Label = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("lbl_Discount"), Label)
        Dim txtDiscountValue As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtDiscountValue"), TextBox)
       
        Command1.Parameters.AddWithValue("@PromoCode", txtPromoCode.Text)
        ' Command1.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DiscountValue", lbl_Discount.Text)
        Command1.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DiscountValue", txtDiscountValue.Text)
       

        Dim PromoCode As String = "'"
        Dim DiscountValue As Int16 = "0"

        'Create new parameters for the sqlCommand object and initialize them to the input values.    

        'Execute the command
        PromoCode = Command1.ExecuteScalar
       
        ' Display whether the page passed validation.
        Dim lbl_message As Label = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("lbl_message"), Label)
       
       
        If String.IsNullOrEmpty(PromoCode) Then
         
            lbl_message.Text = "Promo Code Accepted."
            'Response.Write("--" + PromoCode.ToString() + "Accepted")
            lbl_Discount.Text = "Discount Applied."
            txtDiscountValue.Text = txtPromoCode.Text
           
           
        Else
            lbl_message.Text = "Promo Code Invalid."
            'Response.Write("-- Not Accepted")
            lbl_Discount.Text = "Discount Not Applied."
            txtDiscountValue.Text = txtPromoCode.Text
           
        End If

        ' args.IsValid = False
       
        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(PromoCode) Then
         
            lbl_message.Text = "Promo Code Accepted."
            ' Response.Write("--" + PromoCode.ToString() + "Accepted")
            lbl_Discount.Text = "Discount Applied."
            txtDiscountValue.Text = txtPromoCode.Text
 
           
        Else
            lbl_message.Text = "Promo Code Invalid."
            'Response.Write("-- Not Accepted")
            lbl_Discount.Text = "Discount Not Applied."
            txtDiscountValue.Text = txtPromoCode.Text

        End If

         
        '******* Calculate the event price if PromoCode isValid *********          
        myConnection.Close()
                'Dim txtNumberofTickets As TextBox = RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtNumberofTickets")
        'txtNumberofTickets.Focus()
               
    End Sub
----------

The call to this sub comes from t his button:
-------
<tr>
  <td style="text-align: right; white-space: nowrap; height: 25px; background-color:#ededed">
<asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Promo Code:"></asp:Label>&nbsp;</td>
     
<td style="text-align: left; white-space: nowrap; height: 25px;">
    <asp:TextBox ID="txtPromoCode" Width="150px" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>  
 </td>    
 <td style="text-align: left; white-space: nowrap; height: 25px;">&nbsp; </td>
 <td style="text-align: left; white-space: nowrap; height: 25px;">
<asp:Button ID="btnVerifyPromos" runat="server" OnClick="btnVerifyPromos_Click" Text="Verify"  />
     <asp:Label ID="lbl_message" runat="server" Text="" ></asp:Label>
 </td>      
  </tr>
-----------
What I'm trying to do is to have the textbox called "txtDiscountValue" display the discounted amount and the discounted total price of the ticket.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Following changes are required:

1: No need for this statement
  'Command1.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DiscountValue", txtDiscountValue.Text)

2: Change ExecutedScalar to ExecuteReader  

        'Execute the command
       Dim reader As SqlDataReader = Command1.ExecuteReader
       
       If reader IsNot Nothind AndAlso eader.HasRows
          reader.Read()
          PromoCode = reader.GetString(0)
          DiscountValue = reader.GetInt16(1)

what is the type of DiscountValue in your table tblPromoCodes ?
0
 
Codeaddict7423Author Commented:
guru_sami
the table data types are like this:
---------
ID = int
PromoCode = nvarchar(100)
DiscountVaue = int
DiscountType  = nvarchar(50)
PriceRetail = int
PriceDiscounted = int
PriceTotal = int
StartTime = datetime
EndTime = datetime
CreationDate = datetime
CreatedBy = nvarchar(50)
Active = tinyint

guru_samiCommented:
Change these two lines:

''Dim DiscountValue As Int16 = "0"
Dim DiscountValue As Integer =0


  DiscountValue = reader.GetInt32(1)
0

guru_sami,
IT WORKED!!!. now i see that the "amount discounted" displays the amount of the discount relative to the PromoCode.

The last piece of the puzzle is to deduct the promo discount amount from the total price.
Right now, the total price is calculated by a JavaScript as follows:
---------
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

function RegTotal()
{
form = document.forms[0];
counter = 0;
form = document.forms[0];
            counter = 0;
            if ((form.txtNumberofTickets.value != "") || (form.txtNumberofTickets.value.length != 0)) {      
                  counter = form.txtNumberofTickets.value
            }
            
            form.Regcount.value = counter;
      
        form.Total.value = parseFloat(counter*25);
       
       


var obj = document.getElementById(hdnTotalId);

obj.value = form.Total.value;

//var obj1 = document.getElementById(Attendee_FNameId);

//obj.value below this line is what drives the second caculated total

//obj1.value = form.Attendee_FName.value;


            var obj = document.getElementById("ctl00_ctl00_cphPage_cphContent_SpecialControl_RSVPForm1_hdnTotal");
        //var obj1 = document.getElementById("ctl00_ctl00_cphPage_cphContent_SpecialControl_RSVPForm1_Attendee_FName");

            
            //obj.value = form.Total.value;
            //obj1.value = form.Attendee_FName.value;
            
            

//var p = calcTotal(obj);
//alert("Total Price = " + p);            
            

function calcTotal(obj) {
var discount = 0;

var price = obj.value;
var savings = obj.value * discount;
var total = price - savings;
return form.Total.value;

}
}

This might affect your javascript code....but if you want to do in code-behind you will have to change your Total textbox to asp.net textbox

 <input type="text" name="Total" size="23" value="" style="background-color:#FFFFCC;font-weight:bold;color:#FF0000;" readonly="readonly" disabled="disabled"/>  

Then may be give it ID="txtTotal"

Then Find your txtNumberofTickets and txtTotal in code-behind like:

     Dim txtTotal As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtTotal"), TextBox)
     Dim txtNumberofTickets As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtNumberofTickets"), TextBox)

Then calculate your total = price - discount

If Not String.IsEmptyOrNull(txtNumberofTickets.Text) Then

Dim nt as Integer = Convert.ToInt32((txtNumberofTickets.Text)
Dim price as Integer = nt*25
Dim total As Decimal =  price - (price * DiscountValue /100)
txtTotal .Text = total.ToString()

Else
txtTotal .Text = "0"
End If

and the above code goes in code where you have  '******* Calculate the event price if PromoCode isValid *********

guru_sami,
Thank you for the quick reply.
Indeed, I want to handle the cost calculation in the sub and do away with the JavaScript code. If possible, I would like to have be able to set the ticket price at RSVPForm1_Load and perform the calculations in the sub, transfer the calcuated ticket price (whether there is a discount or not) to the variable hdnTotal so the form can process the charge.

I will start implementing your code suggestions.

guru_sami,
I implemented the code changes you suggested and VS is indicating the following:
-----
  '******* Calculate the event price if PromoCode isValid *********
        Dim txtTotal As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtTotal"), TextBox)
        Dim txtNumberofTickets As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtNumberofTickets"), TextBox)


        If Not String.IsEmptyOrNull(txtNumberofTickets.Text) Then

            Dim nt As Integer = Convert.ToInt32((txtNumberofTickets.Text))
            Dim price As Integer = nt * 25
            Dim total As Decimal = price - (price * DiscountValue / 100)
            txtTotal.Text = total.ToString()

        Else
            txtTotal.Text = "0"
        End If
        -------

At line "If Not String.IsEmptyOrNull(txtNumberofTickets.Text) Then"
VS indicates "IsEmptyOrNull" is not a member of "sting"

Ok you have to change your txtNumberofTickets box to asp.net textbox and give it ID="txtNumberofTickets"

make sure you set your Total text box something similar as well.

guru_sami,
it's calculating the % discount.  This is great, if I wanted to have a hard-dollar discount, how can I change?

Also, I just tested with fake registration, and the txtTotal did display and send the amt of 22.5 (a discount of 10% off) from $25.00
in order to have the amt processed by the cc script, hdnTotal has to equal txtTotal.
Can you please help?

-->if I wanted to have a hard-dollar discount, how can I change?
This is the formula :  price - (price * DiscountValue / 100)
Change it as per your need,,,,it shouldn't be hard, it's basic maths.

-->in order to have the amt processed by the cc script, hdnTotal has to equal txtTotal.
Find the hdnTotal as you find txtTotal and set's it's Text value similar to txtTotal.

guru_sami,

I edited the following to make txtTotal = hdnTotal
------
If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtNumberofTickets.Text) Then

            Dim nt As Integer = Convert.ToInt32((txtNumberofTickets.Text))
            Dim price As Integer = nt * 25
            Dim total As Decimal = price - (price * DiscountValue / 100)
            txtTotal.Text = total.ToString()
           
            Dim hdnTotal As TextBox = RSVPForm1.FindControl("hdnTotal")
            txtTotal.Text = hdnTotal.Text
        Else
            txtTotal.Text = "0"
        End If
------
can you please review?

guru_sami,
I made a slight edit to the previous code. Below, please find my change:
------
 '******* Calculate the event price if PromoCode isValid *********
        Dim txtTotal As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtTotal"), TextBox)
        Dim txtNumberofTickets As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("txtNumberofTickets"), TextBox)
        Dim hdnTotal As TextBox = DirectCast(RSVPForm1.FindControl("hdnTotal"), TextBox)


        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtNumberofTickets.Text) Then

            Dim nt As Integer = Convert.ToInt32((txtNumberofTickets.Text))
            Dim price As Integer = nt * 25
            Dim total As Decimal = price - (price * DiscountValue / 100)
            txtTotal.Text = total.ToString()
                       
            txtTotal.Text = hdnTotal.Text
           

        Else
            txtTotal.Text = "0"
        End If
--------

I am still not getting a calculated total.  
Can you please review?

guru_sami,
YOU ARE A GENIUS .... hdnTotal populates to the database table.
I have a little cleanup to do and tweak the response email to carry the new hdnTotal , but the form works.

I can't thank you enough.
