Hello All,

I am trying to create a Web part that allows a user to enter a keyword query into a textbox, and display the query results in a grid..

My code below is deploys but when I run it I get the following error:

   
 
The "CustomSearchWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Unable to correctly render SPGridView when it has no client ID. Ensure that the control has a parent.  Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings.

Your code lacks assigning ID to the SPGridViewControl. In CreateChildControls method (line 57 or so) add a line:

customGridView.ID = "gridView"

Open in new window


This should help.

Hi TheInnovator,

I did check it again and I am sure about the reason. I have made your webpart as simply as posiible and here without assigning ID - it throws an error.

public class WebPart : Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart
{
	SPGridView gridView;
	protected override void CreateChildControls()
	{
		gridView = new SPGridView();
		gridView.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
		gridView.ID = "id"; // Without this line does not work
		//this.Controls.Add(gridView); // alternate method that assigns ID
	}

	protected override void Render(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer)
	{
		writer.Write("<div style='padding: 5px'>");
		this.gridView.RenderControl(writer);
		writer.Write("</div>");
	}
}

Open in new window


In fact, you have other problems with the code:

- you are not adding SPGridView to control collection (add: this.Controls.Add(customGridView) in the CreateChildControls)

- I suppose that gridview does not work without adding columns to it
