I have a main page that is an ascx user control and also has two sections that are user controls.  I need to be able to hide/show controls in one user control section based on the radio button choice of another user control section.  

The main page code is below it contains 2 user controls.

<%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WCNewClaim.ascx.cs" 
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="WCHeaderInfo" Src="../Controls/WCHeaderInfo.ascx" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="WCEmployeeOccupation" Src="../Controls/WCEmployeeOccupation.ascx" %>

<TABLE id="Table1" cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="0" border="0">
	<TR>
		<TD><uc1:wcheaderinfo id="WCHeaderInfo1" runat="server"></uc1:wcheaderinfo></TD>
	</TR>
	
	<TR>
		<TD><uc1:wcemployeeoccupation id="WCEmployeeOccupation1" runat="server"></uc1:wcemployeeoccupation></TD>
	</TR>
</TABLE>

Open in new window


The user control sections are below.  RadiobuttonList.  When they click GL radio button I need to be able to hide or show textboxes in section two.
radiobutton user control
<%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WCHeaderInfo.ascx.cs" Inherits=
<%@ Register TagPrefix="cc2" Namespace="RTI.WebControls.Safety.RadioButtonList" Assembly="RTIWebControlsSafety" %>


<cc2:safetywctype id="rdlCaseType" runat="server"></cc2:safetywctype>

Open in new window


textbox user control
 <%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WCEmployeeOccupation.ascx.cs" Inherits="
 <%@ Register TagPrefix="cc7" Namespace="RTI.WebControls.Driver.TextBox" Assembly="RTIWebControlsDriver" %>
 
 
 <cc7:SocialSecurityTextBox id="txtSSN" runat="server"></cc7:SocialSecurityTextBox>

Open in new window


I am not sure how to send values between two user controls hosted on a page that just so happens to be another user control.  My first thought was to use jquery to show or hide controls or perhaps there is another way I am just not sure.

If I need to provide more information to arrive at a solution I can.

So far im able to trap the click at least.

But havent got the value showing in the alert.

  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       

        $('#<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.ClientID %>').change(function () {
           var radioListID = ('<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.SelectedValue %>');
            alert($(radioListID));
            //alert("hi");
           
        });
    </script>

For example this doesnt even show an alert box.  Im just trying to trap the selection from the radio button list.  And then hide or show a text box elsewhere based on that choice.
But if I replace the alert below with just a simple alert("hi"); it works.
<div runat="server">
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       
        $('#<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.ClientID %>').click(function () {

            var selectedValue = $('#<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.SelectedValue%>');
           
            alert(selectedValue);
          
           
        });
    </script>
 </div>

Open in new window


Here is the result.

I think I got it now.

<div runat="server">
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       
        $('#<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.ClientID %>').click(function () {
            
            
            var selectedValue = $('#<%= WCHeaderInfo1.rdlCaseType.ClientID %> input:radio:checked').val();

          
            alert(selectedValue);
          
           
        });
    </script>
 </div>

Hi,

1. You can use a server-side event on the custom control with the radio buttons (this resulting in a trip to the server for every radio change)
2. You can use jQuery to hide the controls after you get the value just as you did in the previous posts
3. You can use a client side javascript framework like Knockout, AngularJS, etc..


Regards,
Mishu
