Hello,

I am trying the code below in the Textboxes' Textchanged event to filter the data displayed on a Grid based on the text entered in a Textbox. However the code is not working with the dataset (ds) in the filter satement. can you please help me fix this error. The code also doesn't trigger in the Textchange event is their a way to execute the code everytime the user enters a text?

       Dim ds As New DataSet
        ds.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/Country.xml"))
        GridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        GridView1.DataBind()
        Dim SearchCriteria As String
        SearchCriteria = " Country IN (" & TextBox1.Text & " )"
        Dim FilteredDT As DataTable
        Dim DV As New DataView(ds, SearchCriteria, Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows) ***Error with ds in statement above
        FilteredDT = DV.ToTable
        GridView1.DataSource = FilteredDT

Hi,

I just tried the approach below but received the following error:
"Filter expression 'country' does not evaluate to a Boolean term."
How do I fix this error?

Cide:
 Dim ds As New DataSet
        ds.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/Country.xml"))
        Dim dv As New DataView(ds.Tables(0))
        dv.RowFilter = String.Format("country", TextBox1.Text)
        GridView1.DataSource = dv
        GridView1.DataBind()

Thanks,

Victor

Hi,

I read the section you referred me to, tried modifying my code but it still doesn't work:

 Dim ds As New DataSet
        ds.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/Country.xml"))
        GridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        GridView1.DataBind()
        Dim SearchCriteria As String
        SearchCriteria = " Country IN (" & TextBox1.Text & " )"
        Dim FilteredDT As DataTable
        '  Dim DV As New DataView(ds, SearchCriteria, Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
        GridView1.DataSource = FilteredDT.Select("Country IN (" & TextBox1.Text & " )")

Thanks, for some reason eventhough the code is the the Textboxe's textchanged event, the code doesn't work. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I need to filter the data in the grid for every charater the user enters in the textbox.
