I made a survey tool with a rad rotator for an Ipad website, I am filling the rotator with RadioButtonlists and RadRating item dynamicly and the last part I add a button to say save survey. I loop though all the controls and I can not find any of the dynamic controls I even tried to use page.findcontrol and I can not find them, can anyone help out with this?

thanks!

Here is my code:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Collections;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using Telerik.Web.UI;
using OSweb.Admin.DataTypes;
  
namespace OSweb.Controls
{
    public partial class DisplayQuestions : System.Web.UI.UserControl
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            {
                RadRotator1.ItemTemplate = new RadRotatorTemplate();
                RadRotator1.DataSource = CreateRotatorData(Convert.ToInt32(Session["DealerId"].ToString()), Convert.ToInt32(Session["GroupId"].ToString()));
                RadRotator1.DataBind();
            }
            else
            {
                Button bt = (Button)Page.FindControl("ButtonSubmitSurvey");
                LabelTest.Text = bt.Text;
            }
        }
  
        private List<Questions> CreateRotatorData(Int32 DealerId, int GroupId)
        {
            List<Questions> lq = new List<Questions>();
            using (OSWEB_GenericRemittanceEntities OSWEBe = new OSWEB_GenericRemittanceEntities())
            {
                var qg = (from l in OSWEBe.QuestionGroups where (l.GroupID == GroupId) && (l.DealerId == DealerId) select l.GroupID).FirstOrDefault();
                if (qg != null)
                {
                    var q = (from l in OSWEBe.GroupOfQuestions where (l.GroupID == GroupId) select l);
                    foreach (GroupOfQuestion goq in q)
                    {

Hi Tim,

I have used a part of the provided code and prepared a demo which shows the exact steps in order to achieve the desired result. The main change is that I use the RadRotator's OnItemClick event instead of the Button.Click one. In this case you can find the controls inside the clicked Rotator's item by using this approach:
protected void RadRotator1_ItemClick(object sender, RadRotatorEventArgs e)
{
    RadRating rating = e.Item.FindControl("RadRating1") as RadRating;
    decimal val = rating.Value;
    RadioButtonList radioButtons = e.Item.FindControl("RadioButtonList1") as RadioButtonList;
    Button button = e.Item.FindControl("ButtonSubmitSurvey") as Button;
}

The source code of the demo is attached to this mail.

I hope this helps.


Best wishes,
