Filtering a GridView With Dropdowns

I am building an inventory dashboard to simplify having many different inventory reports. I have a gridview and four dropdown windows. I have it set to load the full query on page load, and then filter the list with the four dropdowns. The page loads great. But the first time I choose any dropdown, I get the message: "Maximum request length exceeded."

This is set in web.config:       <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="1000000" />

This query returns approximately 20,000 rows and actually runs fairly quickly. But filtering it down causes the above error.

This is my pageload event:
            VerifyRenderingInServerForm(form1);
            GridView1.GridLines = GridLines.Both;
            SqlInventory.FilterExpression = "[WAREHOUSE] LIKE '{0}' AND [BIN_LOCATION] LIKE '{1}' AND [PART_CODE] LIKE '{2}' AND [IC_LOT_NUMBER] LIKE '{3}'";
            GridView1.DataBind();

Open in new window

My SQL datasource:
        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlInventory" runat="server" 
            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:fin_pilotConnectionString %>" 
            SelectCommand="SELECT WAREHOUSE, BIN_LOCATION, PART_CODE, PART_DESC_1, IC_STATUS_CODE, IC_LOT_NUMBER, UNIT_OF_MEASURE, STANDARD_COST, IC_QTY_AVAILABLE, CURR_VALUE  FROM [VW_CURRENT_INVENTORY_ALL] ORDER BY [WAREHOUSE], [BIN_LOCATION], [PART_CODE]">
            <FilterParameters>
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="ddlWarehouse" Name="WAREHOUSE" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="ddlBin" Name="BIN_LOCATION" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="ddlPartCode" Name="PART_CODE" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />
                <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="ddlLotNbr" Name="IC_LOT_NUMBER" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />
                </FilterParameters>
        </asp:SqlDataSource>

My dropdowns:

My goal is to load the entire inventory and then let the users filter it by any combination of the four dropdowns. How do I get around the error?

If you are hitting the database every time, then why are you not including the filter condition in the query?

If your version of iis is iis7 or later, then add this to your web.config file:

 <system.webServer>
   <security>
      <requestFiltering>
         <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="1073741824" />
      </requestFiltering>
   </security>
 </system.webServer

Maybe I'm misunderstanding how the filter by gridview works using the FilterExpression. I thought it would just filter the data that is already IN the gridview. I was hoping to not have to hit the database everytime. That is why I had it load the full current inventory when the page opens. All warehouse, all bins, all parts, etc. Then I wanted them to be able to use the drop downs to view only the data they want to see.

Hmm, I don't understand this.

As well know,  .NET limits the maximum data sent in each request to 4096 KB (4MB) by default.

So, to resolve the issue, what you tried and what I sent should have done the trick.

Ok try this:

 <configuration>
   <system.web>
   <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="51200"
   enable = "True"
   executionTimeout="45"/>
   </system.web>
 </configuration>

You can increase the length to your original size but try this first.

That one did the trick. It's doing exactly what I'd hoped it would do now and is very fast.
