ASP.net VB.net error loading GridView

Hi

I get the following error when trying to run the following VB.net code on the ASP.net GridView further on

 Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.UI.LiteralControl' to type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image'.

    Private Sub GridView_Questions_RowDataBound(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView_Questions.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            '((Image)e.Row.Controls[ColumnIndex].Controls[ImageControlIndex]).Height = 50;  as we can't assign ID to <asp:ImageField
            ' Use e.Row.DataItem to Grab the Height and Width value
            DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(0).Controls(0), Image).Height = 50

            DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(0).Controls(0), Image).Width = 100
        End If
    End Sub

Hi murbro,

You cann't directly assign height/width values to web control. First you need to declare those control with variable and then assign them with control location.

e.g.  DropDownList mddl = GridView.Rows[2].FindControl("myDropDown1");

Hope this helps.

The problem is with the following line of code which is :
DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(0).Controls(0), Image).Height = 50
DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(0).Controls(0), Image).Width = 100

Open in new window


You need to understand line of code rather then just using it.

//DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(ColumnIndexInWhichYourImageIs).Controls(ControlIndexLevelAtWhichImageIS), Image).Height = 50
DirectCast(e.Row.Controls(7).Controls(0), Image).Height = 50

Open in new window


Hope this will work!
