load page controls with recent added item

I would like to request for help.

I am able to Edit, and Delete items from a combination of drop down list (driver)
details view (parent), list view (children)

What I need help with is when an new item gets inserted at the parent level.

I would like to re-run the code that loads the drop down list using the newly added item, thus being this one the one that is displayed in the details view, list view (children rows are optional right now)

I am attaching a copy of my vb.net code so far. and aspx

PLease let me know if this is enough information
vb.net.txt
aspx-code.txt

Can you show the code that does this?

it is using the details view default insert event.

i just added
Private Sub dvRecipeItem_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs) Handles dvRecipeItem.ItemInserted
    ddRecipeItemNumber.DataBind()
End Sub

so that the drop down gets reloaded with the new value in the list, but i need to have the new value as the selected value after it gets inserted from the details view.

When a user adds an item to the list, store that item in a session variable...
     Session("NewListItem") = strNewListItem
...then, when you rebuild the list, set the list's SelectedItem to the value of the session variable...
    ddlList.SelectedItem = Session("NewListItem")

This is only pseudocode, but it should get you started.

I have a question, the key field is Id, and that field is hidden when the details view is on edit mode. When the record is added to the database, the Id value is auto-generated. Only then I will have access to the value, otherwise it does not exist on the form/ page/ detailsview

Seems to me that what I have to do is, after the record gets added, pull its Id, the assign this value to a variable like you said:
    Session("NewListItem") = strNewListItem
and then use the variable to do the part:
    ddlList.SelectedItem = Session("NewListItem")

Due to my lack of expertise, I am unsure under which event will I be able to pull the new id for the new record? so that I can later use it as described above

I hope this makes sense, if not, please let me know. I can post more bits of the code.

Is DisplayName (which you are using as DataTextField for dropdown) unique? If it is, you can get this value for newly inserted record in the ItemInserted event and then use it to select the item in drop down list.

Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
Yes, if the new item is going into a database, and that database is being re-queried to populate the list, you could perform an extra step, get the id of the item when you add it to the database, then select the id in the list instead of the name.  This would be better if you have/may have multiple items with the same name.

yes, there will be only one display name per  item (ideally) haven't debug the app enough to make sure that duplicates aren't being inserted.

I tried this

Private Sub dvRecipeItem_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As DetailsViewInsertedEventArgs) Handles dvRecipeItem.ItemInserted

    Dim Id As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.Values("Id"))
    lblMessage.Text = Id.ToString    
End Sub

Open in new window


But I get zero.

When I checked the database, I see that the new record id is actually 46.

I think I got it

    Protected Sub dvArticulos_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As EntityDataSourceChangedEventArgs) Handles EntityDataSource_RecipeItemDetail.Inserted
        Dim last_Id As Long = DirectCast(e.Entity, RefineRecipe).Id
        'Session("Articulo") = last_Id
        lblMessage.Text = last_Id.ToString
    End Sub

I would like to ask for help, now that I am able to access the last id inserted, to learn how to reload the drop down with the new id selected.


if helps to get your assistance, here is the aspx code of the drop down list:
                        <asp:DropDownList 
                            ID="ddRecipeItemNumber" 
                            runat="server" 
                            width="600px" 
                            DataSourceID="EntityDataSource_RecipeItemNumber" 
                            DataTextField="DisplayName" 
                            DataValueField="Id" 
                            AutoPostBack="True"
                            OnDataBinding="Page_Load"
                            CssClass="cssRecipeItemNumber">
                        </asp:DropDownList>
                        <asp:EntityDataSource 
                            ID="EntityDataSource_RecipeItemNumber" 
                            runat="server" 
                            ConnectionString="name=OLTPEntities" 
                            DefaultContainerName="OLTPEntities" 
                            EnableFlattening="False" 
                            EntitySetName="vStd_RefineRecipe" 
                            EnableDelete="True" 
                            EnableInsert="True" 
                            EnableUpdate="True" 
                            EntityTypeFilter="vStd_RefineRecipe" 
                            Where="It.Id > 0"
                            OrderBy="It.ItemNumber">

perhaps this:

    Protected Sub dvRecipeItem_ItemInserted(sender As Object, e As EntityDataSourceChangedEventArgs) Handles EntityDataSource_RecipeItemDetail.Inserted
        Dim last_Serie As Long = DirectCast(e.Entity, RefineRecipe).Id
        lblMessage.Text = last_Serie.ToString
        ddRecipeItemNumber.DataBind()
        ddRecipeItemNumber.SelectedValue = last_Serie.ToString
    End Sub

Yes that should reload the drop down list. Does that work?

I have a question. After I insert the new record, and if I refresh the page (browser refresh button) then the record gets inserted again.

How can I stop this from happening?

Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
On postback, clear the data that does the insert, once the insert has been completed.

metropiaAuthor Commented:
Paul,

"clear the data that does the insert"


Would that be?

EntityDataSource_RecipeItemDetail

This is the code that worked for me in the end.
