Hi.

have been looking at some solutions on here but wasn't able to work out how to do what i need.

I have an online area where customers can view their invoices i post for them. The details are put into a database and the datagrid pulls it through to display it to the customer.

I have a field called InvoiceStatus.

If InvoiceStatus is showing UNPAID then i want an extra column with a button that says 'PAY NOW'. When the button is pressed the user is sent to pay.aspx?number={0}

If the InvoiceStatus is showing PAID then i dont want the button to appear.

This will be for an online C# .net website.

Can anyone help?

Hi,

First you have to add a template column to your grid like this


                <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="False">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CausesValidation="False"
                            CommandName="GoAndPaid" Text='PAY'
                            CommandArgument='<%# Eval("InvoiceNumber") %>'
                            Visible = '<%# ButtonVisible(Eval("InvoiceStatus").ToString()) %>' onclick="LinkButton1_Click"
                            ></asp:LinkButton>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>



And in your codebehind add this



    protected void LinkButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        LinkButton paidButton = (LinkButton)sender;
        Response.Redirect("pay.aspx?number=" + paidButton.CommandArgument);
    }

Hope that helps

Ok, sorry, my bad, you have to add this to your codebehind as well


    public bool ButtonVisible(String invoicestatus) {
        return (invoicestatus == "UNPAID");  
    }
