right now I have a asp:gridview in my html code and the datsource also in the html code.
the gridview calls the datasource and the grid shows up when the page loads.
but I need to fill the gridview with only a particular information connected with a textbox that has a soc. sec. number.  So the connection string would have to be in the on_click of a submit button.
example: web page opens with instructions to type in your soc. sec. number
                  click the submit button and the gridview will pop up with every day of the month for entering hours worked.
so if the gridview is a html tag how do I get it to delay till the textbox has been successfully filled?

thanks

attached is my code
gridview  no longer shows up on load.

added a parameter to the asp:datasource----not sure it is right

table is filled with the correct info, but the grid does not show up.
when I click the fill table button it goes to the databind statement at the bottom of filltable function but no table.

datasource is at the bottom of html code.

It is like even though there is data in table I'm not calling the right query info.

thanks

I didnt check your full code. though, my suggestion is:

to pass ID parameter to SqlDatasource2, you have to do that in SQDatasource_Selecting event, just like
Protected Sub SqlDataSource2_Selecting(sender As Object, e As SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs)
    e.Command.Parameters("@IDs").Value = HERE GIVE YOUR IDs 
End Sub

Open in new window

AND, in your button click, just call CustomersGridView.DataBind()
no need for this line: CustomersGridView.DataSource = SqlDataSource2

first I abandoned the connection to sql that I made through the studio and created my own.  This code fills the gridview.

I have never liked letting the studio connect to a database.  Your comments lead to some thought about how this works.

thanks
