Hello Experts!
If I disable a gridview in my code behind...how can I re-enable it using Javascript?

Thanks,

Most likely if this does not work. you should hide the gridview on the client side then redisplay it on the client side. Most of the time on the server side it removes the grid entirely.

You can get the grid element with the $find(“gridId”) method and from there you have access to the get_GridView and other methods native to the grid. For example:

 

function BtnClick() {

            var grid = $find("WebHierarchicalDataGrid1");

            var activeRow = grid.get_gridView().get_behaviors().get_activation().get_activeCell().get_row();

       

        }

This is my code behind:
        GV_ContactList.Enabled = False

This is my javascript that does NOT work:
    var contact_list = document.getElementById('<%=GV_ContactList.ClientID %>');
    if (null!=contact_list)
    {
        contact_list.disabled=false;
    }

Let me try to explain what I'm trying to do...I have a Tab Container with a gridview and a check box list.  If the user does a search for a contact it fills the check box list to select a contact they searched for and I disable the gridview with the entire list...once they select one from the list of and click OK it re-enables the Gridview in the Code Behind...however if they click on another tab I want to clear the search results and enable the gridview again...everything works except the re-enable of the Gridview.
