                {
                    TextBox txtPrice = (TextBox)grdBuy.Rows[i].FindControl("txtPrice");
                    Label lblTypeOfPrice = (Label)grdBuy.Rows[i].FindControl("lblTypeOfPrice");


                    if (lblTypeOfPrice.Text == "POA")
                    {
                        txtPrice.Visible = false;
                                            }
                    else
                    {
                        txtPrice.Visible = true;
                    }

                }

Open in new window



It displays everything fine no problem, but my problem is with the IF statement I want to check if the Labels text is POA then visible=false for that box for that row.

My problem is that set visible to false for all text boxes for all rows

please help

Thanks,

use RowDataBound event of the grid. and do the condition there.
protected void grdBuy_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
	if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
	{
		Label lblTypeOfPrice = ((Label)e.Row.FindControl("lblTypeOfPrice"));
		TextBox txtPrice = ((TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("txtPrice"));

		if (lblTypeOfPrice.Text == "POA")
		{
			txtPrice.Visible = false;
		}
		else
		{
			txtPrice.Visible = true;
		}
		
	}
}

do it on client (jquery):

 $("#lblTypeOfPrice").each(function(){
      if($(this).text() == "POA"){
        $(this).parent().find("#txtPrice").hide();
      }else{
$(this).parent().find("#txtPrice").show();
}
    });

@R8VI

did u debug your code?

try first show/hide all txtPrice controls just to see your code is running:

if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                TextBox txtPrice = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("txtPrice");
                Label lblTypeOfPrice = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("lblTypeOfPrice");

//run it once then change it to false and see if all txtPrice are hidden
txtPrice.Visible=true;
            }

if the first run txtPrice controls are all displayed and in the 2nd time they are all hidden then check if the IF statement is correct.
