Hello,

I need help.
I'm a begginer, a student, and still learning asp.net with vb.net. I have stucked at filtering gridview with ComboBoxList as multiple checkboxes, if selected more then 2.
I have add a gridview with all columns from database (id, firstname, secondname), and assigned Comboboxlist control to gridview. It is working, but only if one checkbox is selected. But I want to retrieve, also rows if second, or third checkbox is selected.

SELECT * FROM [main] WHERE ([FirstName] = ?)

Open in new window


Thank you in advance for help to anyone.

In the checkboxlist, add AutoPostBack="true" then in the code-behind create the OnItemChecked event.  There, you can do a For Each to check if each list item is checked or not, and add it to the Where clause"


Dim valueList as String = ""
Dim li As ListItem
For Each li in CheckBoxList1.Items
   If li.Selected Then
      valueList += li.Text & ", "
   End If
Next

Dim valueListLength as Integer = Len(valueList)
If valueListLength > 1 Then
valueList = LEFT(valueList, valueListLength - 2)      '(removes the ", " from the last one)
End If

SqlDataSource.SelectCommand = "SELECT * FROM NameTable WHERE Name IN(" & valueList & ")"
GridView1.DataBind()

A code like below will work for you in case of multiple items selected.

CODE EXAMPLE
==============
Dim mySqlQuery as String = "SELECT * FROM [main] WHERE [FirstName] IN "

Dim strchklist As String = ""
     Dim li As ListItem
     For Each li In CheckBoxList1.Items
          If li.Selected Then
               strchklist += li.Text + " "
          End If
     Next

     If strchklist = "" Then
          Response.Write("No item Selected")
     Else
          mySqlQuery = mySqlQuery + " (" + strchklist + ")"
          ' EXECUTE YOUR QUERY HERE.
     End If


Hope this helps.

Change the code like below in Default.aspx.vb
It would work.

Protected Sub CheckBoxList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles CheckBoxList1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim csvOfSelectedItems As String = ""
        Dim li As ListItem
        For Each li In CheckBoxList1.Items
            If li.Selected Then
                csvOfSelectedItems += "'" + li.Text + "',"
            End If
        Next

        If csvOfSelectedItems = "" Then
            Response.Write("No item Selected")
        Else
            ' Trim the last comma char
            csvOfSelectedItems = csvOfSelectedItems.Substring(0, csvOfSelectedItems.Length - 1)

            ' Prepare Query string
            Dim sqlQuery As String = "SELECT * FROM [main] WHERE [FirstName] IN (" + csvOfSelectedItems + ")"

            ' EXECUTE sqlQuery HERE and use the results.
            PersonSqlDataSource.SelectCommand = sqlQuery
        End If
    End Sub
