Gridview looping through records in aaspx page...

Hi,

On my aspx page I'm binding datasource to a datagrid and set the AutoGenerateColumns="false" so I could construct the column as i wish. This what I done:

<Columns>
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Exam Sit" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                 <asp:CheckBox  ID="chkExamsit" runat="server" Text="" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
             </asp:TemplateField>
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Exam Code" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblExamCode" runat="server" Text='<%# ((ExamsDisplay)Container.DataItem).ExamCode %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
             </asp:TemplateField>
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Description" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblDescription" runat="server" Text='<%# ((ExamsDisplay)Container.DataItem).Description %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
   
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Duration" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblDuration" runat="server" Text='<%# ((ExamsDisplay)Container.DataItem).Duration %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
           
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Requested Date" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlRequestedDate" DataSourceID="xmlExamLevelDates" DataMember="ExamLevelDate" DataTextField="Date"  Width="100" runat="server" > </asp:DropDownList>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
           
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Requested Venue" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlRequestedVenue" Width="100" runat="server" > </asp:DropDownList>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
         
           
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Exam Result" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="txtExamResult" runat="server" Width="75" Text='<%# ((ExamsDisplay)Container.DataItem).Result %>'></asp:TextBox>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
   
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Confirmed Date" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="txtConfirmedDate" runat="server" CssClass="datepicker" Text='<%# ((ExamsDisplay)Container.DataItem).ConfirmedExamDate %>'></asp:TextBox>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
   
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Confirmed Venue" runat="server">
                             <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlConfirmedVenue" Width="100" runat="server" > </asp:DropDownList>
                            </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>

Now I want this data to be sent it to a data store for storage. How do I loop through the records in a gridview control that has template column rather than bound column.

Can someone help me do this plaese.

Thanks!

hi

each time you have to change the data type for each coloum

for example:
    Dim chkExamsit As CheckBox = CType(GridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).FindControl("chkExamsit"), CheckBox)
    Dim lblExamCodeAs label= CType(GridView1.Rows(i).Cells(1).FindControl("lblExamCode"), label)
.
.....



make a for statement and search each record
Ex:
  For i As Integer = 0 To GridView1.Rows.Count - 1
                Dim chkDelete As CheckBox = CType(GridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).FindControl("chkContractor"), CheckBox)
                If Not chkDelete Is Nothing Then
                    If chkDelete.Checked Then

                     

                       ' do what u want

                           

                        End If
                    End If
                End If
            Next

Hi,

  Dim chkDelete As CheckBox = CType(GridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).FindControl

What is Cells(0) represent here? I believe, the position of the column in the row?
0
