Hi there,

on row data bound  I want to display an ajaax calendar with the textbox if the a template field contains the value date.

for example
if (isDate == "Date")
            {
               
                AjaxControlToolkit.CalendarExtender CalBolton = new AjaxControlToolkit.CalendarExtender();
                CalBolton.ID = "calBolton" + i;
                CalBolton.Format = "dd/MM/yyyy";
                CalBolton.TargetControlID = txtBoltonCCG.ID;
                grdStandsrds.Controls.Add(CalBolton);
                i = i + 1;
            }

It's not completely clear what your question is. However, I will do what I can to answer this the best I can.

First off, you are going to do this in the GridView RowDataBound event, right?

Secondly, you are going to work with RowData such that in the event, e:

e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow, right?

Third, you are going to grab the the cells in this fashion:

TableCell myCell = e.Row.Cells[0];

Each cell will be indexed 0...whatever being the number of columns you have in the row. Therefore, Column 0 would be e.Row.Cells[0] and Column 1 would be e.Row.Cells[1], etc.

You'd need to find the column for your calendar: e.Rows.Cells9x] where x is the column for the textbox with the date in it.

Then, you'd build your calendar control, like you already are doing. Then, you's simply add it to the column:

e.Row.Cells[x].Controls.Add(myCalendarControl);

Or, if you do like I do, first:

TableCell startDateCell = e.Row.Cells[x];
startDateCell.Controls.Add(myCalendarControl);

works too.

You do this within the RowDataBound event for each and every column.
