Hi ,

I need to create a page that has databound controls . eg.

Say i have a row with the following columns
1. TrackKey VARCHAR(50)
2. State VARCHAR(50)
3. Reason VARCHAR(50)
4. DateChanged DATETIME

------------------------------------------------------------

Now for each row in the table, the controls should be like this
1. TrackKey - Label
2. State - dropdownlist
3. Reason textbox
4. DateChanged - 3 dropdownlists [years, months , days]

---------------------------------------------------------------

I am able to dynamically load these controls, but due to postback i cannot save the information that changed.

can anyone give me some advice on how to change this ?

here is my code for loading:

void GenerateList()
        {
            // This method will generate a table for editing states

            // Dataset for storing values
            DataSet setGetTrackings = new DataSet();

            // In the grid - the controls
            Label TrackKey = new Label();
            DropDownList SetState = new DropDownList();
            TextBox reason = new TextBox();
            DropDownList Days = new DropDownList();
            DropDownList Months = new DropDownList();
            DropDownList Years = new DropDownList();
            HtmlTableCell htmlCell = null;
            HtmlTableRow htmlRow = null;

            HandleStates entry = new HandleStates();

            // finally we will count the rows for inserting
            int rowcount = 2;

            int IndexCount = 0;

            //Set the tables.
            if (setGetTrackings != null && setGetTrackings.Tables.Count > 0)
            {
                foreach (DataRow row in setGetTrackings.Tables[0].Rows)
                {
                    // Create the controls.
                    TrackKey = new Label();
                    SetState = new DropDownList();
                    htmlCell = null;
                    htmlRow = null;
                    reason = new TextBox();
                    Days = new DropDownList();
                    Months = new DropDownList();
                    Years = new DropDownList();

                    #region Populate Controls
                    // Set the values
                    TrackKey.Text = row[0].ToString();
                    SetState.Items.Add(row[7].ToString());
                    reason.TextMode = TextBoxMode.MultiLine;

                    // Add more Items To The DropDown
                    SetState.Items.Add("--New State--");
                    SetState.Items.Add("Visiting x Branch");
                    SetState.Items.Add("Visiting y Branch");
                    SetState.Items.Add("Received");

Are you creating the controls on the postback? If you don't then you won't see the updated data.

my friend u are creating controls on the fly..

i think you should save the data cumming frm database to an object..

and updating the data update the object...and load them again..

i think using session u can figure out the situation..
