Cannot rebind GridView nested in DataList

Posts: n/a
Hello everybody

I'm stuck for a long time with the following problem, so I will be
really gratefull if you could help me a bit:

I have a GridView nested in DataList (it's located in DataList's Item
Template together with it's data source).

In OnRowUpdated event of child GridView I'm calling DataBind() on
parent DataList, since I want it to reflect the changes (maybe there's
better way to refresh the datalist?)

I get the following error:

"The ObjectDataSource control 'odsGridViewObjectDataSource' does not
have a naming container. Ensure that the control is added to the page
before calling DataBind. "

It happens when during rebinding of datalist, rebinding of child
gridview is called ( on ItemDataBound event), more precisly when
FindControl is called:

protected void DataList1_ItemDataBound(Object sender,
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListItemEventArgs e) {
odsGridViewObjectDataSource =
(ObjectDataSource)(e.Item.FindControl("odsGridView ObjectDataSource"));


= DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "CostID").ToString();


thank you a LOT

I've solved the problem.

I guess calling DataBind() on parent control on OnRowUpdated() was to
early, so what I did was to set

ViewState["updatingRow"] = true;

in OnROwUpdated

and start DataBind in the latest phase of page life cycle -
onPreRender, when nested control was already bound programmatically to

protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)

if ((bool)ViewState["updatingRow"])
ViewState["updatingRow"] = false;
