Filter GridView with UserID

Hi there

Pretty new to working in ASP.NET (VB) and have what I think is a simple question here but I have a GridView that I wish to apply a filter against the logged in UserID but I can't seem to get this for some reason.

Anyone able to offer any assistance on how I go about obtaining the UserID from the standard AspNet.Identity package which is what I'm using?

Driving me insane atm lol.

Any help appreciated as always guys.

Thanx

You should filter the data before it reaches the GridView.  So, perhaps if you have a DataTable, you can do

Dim dv as New DataView(myDataTable)
dv.RowFilter = String.Format("ColumnToFilter = {0}", User.Identity.GetUserId().ToString)
myGridView.DataSource = dv.ToTable
myGridView.DataBind()

Open in new window

This is what I ended up doing:

            <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" OnSelecting="SqlDataSource1_Selecting" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:aspnet-WebSite1-13bb7ef4-4736-49de-9eb7-9b2d7393640dConnectionString1 %>" 
                SelectCommand="SELECT [Id], [OAS_ID], [CRM_VolGUID], [CRM_BusinessGUID], [CRM_BusinessName] FROM [YBSCRM_VolData] WHERE ([OAS_ID] = @NewUserID)">
                <SelectParameters>
                    <asp:Parameter Name="NewUserID" Type="String" />
                </SelectParameters>
            </asp:SqlDataSource>

Open in new window

and the code behind was:

Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Selecting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs)
        e.Command.Parameters("@NewUserID").Value = User.Identity.GetUserId()
    End Sub

Open in new window

So you're comments about filtering the data proved very useful as this was my stumbling block.
