I have a panel bar with 3 items.

In each item I have different templates, I want to databind different datasources to these items but I can't figure it out.

PanelBar.FindItemByValue(

"Offices").DataItem = Office

That is what I'm trying at the moment in a for loop but it doesn't add all the offices, only the last one.

How can I do this? I can't use .Item.Add because I need to use the template.

Cheers

Hi Jonathan,

Actually, there's an easy way in which you can achieve your goal - use UserControl for the templated controls. Here's a sample code snippet that shows the needed approach.

ASPX:
<form id="form1" runat="server">     
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="scrMgr" runat="server">     
    </asp:ScriptManager>    
    <div>    
        <telerik:RadPanelBar ID="thePanelBar" runat="server" Skin="Office2007" Width="500">     
        </telerik:RadPanelBar>    
    </div>    
    <asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="Save Users' Data" />    
</form>    
 

Code-behind;
using System.Data;  
using System.Data.SqlClient;  
using Telerik.Web.UI;  
 
partial class test2 : System.Web.UI.Page  
{  
 
    private DataTable data {  
        get {  
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();  
            dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ID"typeof(string)));  
            dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ParentID"typeof(string)));  
            dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("NAME"typeof(string)));  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem1"null"Sakis"});  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem2"null"Makis"});  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem3"null"Lakis"});  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem4""pitem1"null});  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem5""pitem2"null});  
            dt.Rows.Add(new string[] {"pitem6""pitem3"null});  
            return dt;  
        }  
    }  
 
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)  
    {  
        if (!IsPostBack)  
        {  
            thePanelBar.DataTextField = "NAME";  
            thePanelBar.DataFieldID = "ID";  
            thePanelBar.DataFieldParentID = "ParentID";  
            thePanelBar.DataSource = data;  
            thePanelBar.DataBind();  
        }  
 
        foreach (RadPanelItem myPanelItem in thePanelBar.Items)  
        {  
            myPanelItem.Items(0).Controls.Add(LoadControl("~/WebUserControl.ascx"));  
        }  
    }  
 
    protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)  
    {  
        foreach (RadPanelItem p in thePanelBar.Items)  
        {  
            Response.Write(p.Items(0).Controls.Count + "<br />");  
        }  
    }  
}  
 



All the best,

I'm not sure that will work in this case because I need to update other panel bars depending on what is selected. i.e. if I select two offices in the panelbar then I need the staff option to update with staff from that office

office>
    list of offices (OfficeName CheckBox)
staff>
    list of staff from selected offices above

Hope that makes sense

Hello Jonathan,

Unfortunately, the provided information does not help us much in reproducing the error. I'm afraid we could not be of much help unless we reproduce the issue on our side. It will be best if you can open a support ticket and send us a simple running project (incl. your custom skin, CSS, images, DB backup if needed and so on) demonstrating the problem (and step-by-step instructions on doing so). In that way we can reproduce and pinpoint the problems you're facing on our side, understand the logic of your application and provide a solution.

Sincerely yours,
Paul
