Hi,

Can I check please, if my code below is the correct way to retrieve values from grid controls to use a parameter values in a SQL UPDATE query - as the values do not seem to be getting picked up:

 

 

Private Sub RDHauls_UpdateCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs) Handles RDHauls.UpdateCommand

 

 

 

Try

 

 

 

' List of parameter values that need to be passed into the UPDATE SQL query

 

TripCode = RTrim(

 

CStr(ddlTripCode.SelectedItem.Value))

 

 

 

Dim VesselCode As String = CType(e.Item.FindControl("VessReg"), TextBox).Text

 

 

 

Dim HaulNumber As Integer = CType(e.Item.FindControl("HaulNumber"), TextBox).Text

 

 

 

Dim RigNumber As Integer = CType(e.Item.FindControl("RigNumber"), TextBox).Text

Thank you, Ida

Hi Ida,

Please try the following code snippet to access the controls in UpdateCommand.If this doesn't help,please provide your full code snippet.

VB:
Dim edit As GridEditableItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
'Access a BoundColumn
Dim id As String = TryCast(edit("ID").Controls(0), TextBox).Text
'Access a TemplateColumn dropdownlist
Dim DropDownList1 As DropDownList = TryCast(edit.FindControl("DropDownList1"), DropDownList)
Dim strTemp As String = DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text

Thanks,
Princy

Hi,

The RadGrid textboxes are getting picked up ok. Though just noticed that the dropdown selected values do not seem to be identified.

Here is the code below that I am using to pick out a dropdown selected value:

Dim

 

 

dropdownTechnique As RadComboBox = TryCast(edit.FindControl("Technique"), RadComboBox)

 

 

 

Dim selectedTechnique As Integer = CInt(dropdownTechnique.SelectedValue)

I get an error:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object

So I am guessing that the selected value is not getting assigned to the selectedTechnique variable.

Any advice please?

Thanks, Ida

Hi Ida,

Below is the sample code snippet that i tried,it works fine at my end.Bind the RadComboBox in the ItemDatabound Event during the edit mode.

ASPX:
<radG:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="ShipCity" DataField="ShipCity" HeaderText="ShipCity">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ShipCity")%>
    </ItemTemplate>
    <EditItemTemplate>
        <radG:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="radComboCity"  />
    </EditItemTemplate>
</radG:GridTemplateColumn>

VB:
Protected Sub grdParkingLocations_UpdateCommand(sender As Object, e As GridCommandEventArgs)
    Try
        Dim edit As GridEditableItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
        Dim OrderID As String = edit.GetDataKeyValue("ID").ToString()
        Dim combo As RadComboBox = DirectCast(edit.FindControl("radComboCity"), RadComboBox)
            'code to update        
        Dim val As String = combo.SelectedValue
            'Error message 
    Catch ex As Exception
    End Try
End Sub

Thanks,
Princy

Thanks Princy - I am wondering if I am setting up my dropdown incorrectly

ASPX:

<telerik:GridDropDownColumn DataField="Technique" HeaderText="Technique" ListTextField="Name" ListValueField="Code" UniqueName="Technique" ColumnEditorID="Technique" Visible="false" DropDownControlType="DropDownList"></telerik:GridDropDownColumn>


VB.NET:

Private Sub RDHauls_UpdateCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs) Handles RDHauls.UpdateCommand
 

                Dim edit As GridEditableItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)

               Dim dropdownTechnique As RadComboBox = TryCast(edit.FindControl("Technique"), RadComboBox)
                Dim selectedTechnique As Integer = dropdownTechnique.SelectedValue


The selected value is not being found. Should I change my dropdown set-up?

Thanks, Ida

Princy,

I set up my dropdown to match your sample code:

<telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="Technique" DataField="Technique" HeaderText="Technique">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Technique")%>
    </ItemTemplate>
    <EditItemTemplate>
        <telerik:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="Technique" />
    </EditItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

But the databinding VB.NET code would not work:

Protected Sub RDHauls_ItemDataBound(sender As Object, e As GridItemEventArgs)

          

            If TypeOf e.Item Is GridEditableItem AndAlso e.Item.IsInEditMode Then

             

                Dim editItemTechnique As GridEditableItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
                Dim editManagerTechnique As GridEditManager = editItemTechnique.EditManager
                Dim editorTechnique As GridDropDownListColumnEditor = DirectCast(editManagerTechnique.GetColumnEditor("Technique"), GridDropDownListColumnEditor)
                Dim dsTechnique As New DSHaulsTableAdapters.DisGetTechniquesForGearsTableAdapter
                editorTechnique.DataSource = dsTechnique.GetDisGetTechniquesForGears(TripCode)
                Dim selectedTechnique As Integer = DataBinder.Eval(editItemTechnique.DataItem, "Technique")
                Dim rComboBoxTechnique As DropDownList = editorTechnique.DropDownListControl
                rComboBoxTechnique.DataTextField = "Name"
                rComboBoxTechnique.DataValueField = "Code"
                rComboBoxTechnique.DataBind()
                rComboBoxTechnique.SelectedValue = selectedTechnique



I get the following error message:
Unable to cast object of type 'Telerik.Web.UI.GridTemplateColumnEditor' to type 'Telerik.Web.UI.GridDropDownListColumnEditor'

Got it sorted, by using the VB.NET code:

Dim

 

 

dropdownTechnique As DropDownList = TryCast(edit("Technique").Controls(0), DropDownList)

 


instead of

Dim dropdownTechnique As RadComboBox = TryCast(edit.FindControl("Technique"), RadComboBox)


Thanks for your help!
