Textbox Value

Hello:

I am trying to show a value in a textbox that I got from a database table. I know the data is pulling the values correctly. Here is my textbox:

<asp:TextBox ID="NameText" Text="<%# adjName %>" runat="server" Width="200px" />

Unfortunately, that is not enough markup to go on. We would need to see what container you are using (e.g. Repeater, GridView, etc.) in order to give you proper syntax to databind with. Can you elaborate?

If adjName is a server side variable with the value you want to assign, then it must be declared public in your server code in order to acces it with <%# adjName %> in aspx page.

        public string adjName;

OK hereis my whole aspx:

 <ajaxToolkit:TabContainer ID="ProfileContainer" TabStripPlacement="Top" runat="server" Width="650" BorderColor="Black" ActiveTabIndex="0">
<ajaxToolkit:TabPanel runat="server" HeaderText="Header1" ID="Tab1">
        <ContentTemplate>
            <table cellpadding="3" style="width: 558px">
            <tr>
            <td><asp:Label runat="server" CssClass="RequiredLabelClass" Text="Name:" ID="NameLabel" /></td>
            <td><<asp:TextBox ID="NameText" Text="<%# adjName %>" runat="server" Width="200px" /></td>
            </tr>

            </table>
        </ContentTemplate>

        </ajaxToolkit:TabPanel>
       
        <ajaxToolkit:TabPanel runat="server" HeaderText="Header2" ID="Tab2">
           
        </ajaxToolkit:TabPanel>
   
    </ajaxToolkit:TabContainer>

Respone.Write sytnax ( <%= ... %> ) does not work within properties of server controls (AFAIK). Data-binding syntax ( <%# ... %> ) would be the proper way of making a property bound to some backing data store.

Please let us know where the data is coming from. I don't see where you have connected your ajaxToolkit:TabContainer to a data source.

Assuming it's a publicly declared server variable, it would have to be done using javascript.

<body>
    <form runat="server" id="form1">
         <asp:TextBox ID="NameText" runat="server" Width="200px" />
    </form>
    <script type="text/javascript">        
         document.getElementById("NameText").value = "<%= adjName %>";
    </script>
</body>

What about code-behind?  ; )

You're right, it would be kind of pointless.

Hello:

The tab container itself is not connected to a datasource. I have a form in the tab container that I want to get values from a database. The values are pulling from he database because I tested it with asp:label and the values show. I can't get the values to show in the textbox.

Try like this
TextBox nameTxt = (TextBox) ProfileContainer.FindControl("Tab1").FindControl("NameText");
nameTxt.text = "value from database";

Open in new window

Hope this helps!

I figured it out. This works:

<asp:TextBox ID="NameText" runat="server" Width="200px" />

NameText.Text = Convert.ToString(reader["UserName"]);
