When I click on "Save" I need to loop through the gridview rows one by one and gather the following info:

RepairBidID
RepairBidSID
Status

status

I've not done this in a while.  I need some help.  What does this typically look like?


Here is the markup for the gridview portion:

 <cc1:GridviewFormattedNoAlt ID="gvPendingRepairBids" runat="server" AllowSorting="true"
                    AllowPaging="true" AutoGenerateColumns="false" Width="600px" 
        onpageindexchanging="gvPendingRepairBids_PageIndexChanging">
                    <Columns>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Contractor Name:" SortExpression="BidCompany">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblBidCompany" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("BidCompany") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Estimated Completion Days:" SortExpression="RprEstCompletionDays">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblEstimatedCompletionDays" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("RprEstCompletionDays") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid Total:" SortExpression="sumofamt">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblBidTotal" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("sumofamt") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid Document:" SortExpression="BidDocID">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server" href='<%# "~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=" + Eval("BidDocID") + "-" + Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>
                                    PDF</a>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid Details:" SortExpression="BidDocID">
                            <ItemTemplate>                                
                                <a id="linkViewDocumentFAKE" runat="server" href='<%# "~/Main.aspx?MenuId=537&AssetTaskID=" + Eval("AssetTaskID")  + "-" + Eval("AssetTaskSID") %>'>View</a>
                                
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                         <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid Status:" SortExpression="StatusID">
                            <ItemTemplate>                                
                                <cc1:DdlLookup runat="server" AllowUnassigned="true" HeaderCode="PresBidSta" DataTextField="Description" AllowAll="true" DataValueField="StatusID"></cc1:DdlLookup>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                    </Columns>
                </cc1:GridviewFormattedNoAlt>

Open in new window



Here is how the grid view is FILLED initially:

    using (MarketingDataContext dc2 = new MarketingDataContext())
            {
                _pendingRepairBids = dc2.Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_Get(atid, atsid).ToList<Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_GetResult>();
                this.gvPendingRepairBids.DataSource = _pendingRepairBids;
                this.gvPendingRepairBids.DataBind();
            }

Open in new window




I was beginning to write the UPDATE part  ( which is what I am asking about )

Here is as far as I got:

//Update RepairBidStatus
            using(MarketingDataContext mdc = new MarketingDataContext)
            {
                int repairBidID;
                int repairBidSID;
                int statusID;
                mdc.Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_UpdateStatus(repairBidID, repairBidSID, statusID);
            }

Open in new window



Do I need to loop through the rows of the grid view?

Or is there some special LINQ way to do this?





[[EDIT]]


This compiles okay, but I don't want to hard-code the column indexes!

    //Update RepairBidStatus
     using(MarketingDataContext mdc = new MarketingDataContext())
            {
                int repairBidID = 0;
                int repairBidSID = 0;
                int statusID = 0;
                foreach(GridViewRow gvr in gvPendingRepairBids.Rows)
                {
                    repairBidID = Convert.ToInt32(gvr.Cells[7].Text);
                    repairBidSID = Convert.ToInt32(gvr.Cells[8].Text);
                    statusID = Convert.ToInt32(gvr.Cells[9].Text);
                    mdc.Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_UpdateStatus(repairBidID, repairBidSID, statusID);
                }

I don't think there's a better way to do it other than the indexes unless you have something like this

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid ID:" SortExpression="repairBidID">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="lblBidID" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("repairBidID") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>

Open in new window


Then you could use

foreach(GridViewRow gvr in gvPendingRepairBids.Rows)
                {
                    repairBidID = Convert.ToInt32(((Label)gvr.FindControl("lblBidID"))).Text);
                 }

Thank you for your reply on this.


This is what I ended-up doing:

  //Update RepairBidStatus
            using(MarketingDataContext mdc = new MarketingDataContext())
            {
                int repairBidID = 0;
                int repairBidSID = 0;
                int? statusID = 0;

                foreach(GridViewRow gvr in gvPendingRepairBids.Rows)
                {

                    repairBidID = Convert.ToInt32(((Label)gvr.FindControl("lblRepairBidID")).Text);
                    repairBidSID = Convert.ToInt32(((Label)gvr.FindControl("lblRepairBidSID")).Text);
                    var s = ((Framework.UIControls.DdlLookup)gvr.FindControl("ddlStatus")).LookupID;
                    statusID = Convert.ToInt32(s);

                    if (statusID != 0)
                    {
                        mdc.Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_UpdateStatus(repairBidID, repairBidSID, statusID);
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        mdc.Marketing_Plan_PendingRepairBids_UpdateStatus(repairBidID, repairBidSID, null);
                    }
                }
            }
