CheckBox Changed Event Not Firing in DataGrid

Posts: n/a
Hey group:

I am adding an event to a checkbox in a TemplateColumn inside a grid, but cant seem to fire the event, or maybe I am not capturing the value of the checkbox. This is how the code is currently:

The default page loads a control in the body, that contains a DropDownList. User selects a value and DataGrid is populated. The Grid is created at design time and so are the checkboxes:

<div style="OVERFLOW: auto; WIDTH: 100%; HEIGHT: 250px"><asp:datagrid id="DataGrid1" runat="server" CssClass="BodyText" ShowHeader="False" Width="100%"
<HeaderStyle Font-Size="Smaller" Font-Names="Arial" HorizontalAlign="Center" BackColor="Gray"></HeaderStyle>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="c_Category" SortExpression="Category" HeaderText="Category">
<HeaderStyle Width="10%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="10%"></ItemStyle>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="c_Sub_Category" SortExpression="SubCategory" HeaderText="Sub Category">
<HeaderStyle Width="10%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="10%"></ItemStyle>
<asp:BoundColumn Visible="False" DataField="c_WebNum">
<HeaderStyle Width="10%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="20%"></ItemStyle>
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Task">
<HeaderStyle Width="30%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="30%"></ItemStyle>
<asp:Label runat="server" ID="Label5" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.c_Task") %>'>
<asp:TextBox runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.c_Task") %>' >
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="*TC">
<HeaderStyle Width="25%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="25%"></ItemStyle>
<asp:CheckBox id="CheckBox1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True"></asp:CheckBox><BR>
<aspropDownList id=ComplianceList runat="server" CssClass="BodyText" DataSource="<%# GetCompliance() %>" DataTextField="c_Desc" DataValueField="i_ColVal">
<asp:TextBox id="Textbox5" runat="server" EnableViewState="False" Text=""></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="*DO">
<HeaderStyle Width="25%"></HeaderStyle>
<ItemStyle Width="25%"></ItemStyle>
<INPUT id="shiv2" type="checkbox" runat="server"><BR>
<asp:Label id="Label6" Runat="server">If not compliant,enter directions:</asp:Label><BR>
<asp:TextBox id="Tbox1" runat="server" CssClass="BodyText" EnableViewState="False" Text="Compliant by 8/19/2004">Compliant by 8/19/2004</asp:TextBox><BR>
<asp:BoundColumn Visible="False"></asp:BoundColumn>
<PagerStyle VerticalAlign="Bottom" PageButtonCount="15" Mode="NumericPages"></PagerStyle>

In the codebehind, this is how I BindData() and add the event:

-The page load method:


private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

BindData method:
private void BindData()
SqlCommand cm;
SqlConnection cn;
cn = new SqlConnection("..;");

cm = new SqlCommand("dbo.GetAudit",cn);

//Add the parameters to be passed

//Assign values to the parameters to be input

//Execute the stored procedure

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cm);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
DataGrid1.DataSource = ds;
lblShow.Text = "Showing Tasks for " + CityList.SelectedItem.Text + " office.";

-Adding the event upon ItemCreated:

private void grid_ItemCreated( object sender,
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)
ListItemType elemType = e.Item.ItemType;
if ((elemType == ListItemType.Item)||(elemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem))
// find the checkbox inside the Grid
CheckBox CheckBox1 = (CheckBox) e.Item.Cells[5].FindControl("CheckBox1");
// register event in the check box
CheckBox1.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(this.OnChangeHandler);

protected void OnChangeHandler(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

CheckBox CheckBox1 = (CheckBox)sender;
DataGridItem GridItem = (DataGridItem)CheckBox1.Parent.Parent;
///if (CheckBox1.Checked == true)

Label2.Text = CheckBox1.Checked.ToString();



-Init component:
this.Button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.Button1_Click);
this.DataGrid1.ItemCreated += new System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventHandler (this.grid_ItemCreated);
this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);

Now the grid renders just fine when i click on the submit button after selecting from the dropdown. But as soon as I click on the Checkbox, the label doesnt get updated and the grid disappears. And here is the output as redered:

<div style="OVERFLOW: auto; WIDTH: 100%; HEIGHT: 250px"><table class="BodyText" cellspacing="0" rules="all" border="1" id="_ctl5_DataGrid1" style="width:100%;border-collapse:collapse;">
<td style="width:10%;">General Office Procedures</td><td style="width:10%;">Office Maintenance</td><td style="width:30%;">
<span id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_Label5">Ensure Regulatory and HR Compliance in the Field Office</span><br>
</td><td style="width:25%;">
<input id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_CheckBox1" type="checkbox" name="_ctl5ataGrid1:_ctl2:CheckBox1" onclick="__doPostBack('_ctl5$DataGrid1$_ctl2$Check Box1','')" language="javascript" /><BR>
<select name="_ctl5ataGrid1:_ctl2:ComplianceList" id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_ComplianceList" class="BodyText">
<option value="1">Procedures are not followed</option>
<option value="2">Wrong person is performing the task</option>
<option value="3">Task is performed at the wrong frequency</option>
<option value="4">Not applicable - please provide details</option>
<option value="5">Other - please provide details</option>

<input name="_ctl5ataGrid1:_ctl2:Textbox5" type="text" id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_Textbox5" />
</td><td style="width:25%;">
<input name="_ctl5ataGrid1:_ctl2:shiv2" id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_shiv2" type="checkbox" /><BR>
<span id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_Label6">If not compliant,enter directions:</span><BR>
<input name="_ctl5ataGrid1:_ctl2:Tbox1" type="text" value="Compliant by 8/19/2004" id="_ctl5_DataGrid1__ctl2_Tbox1" class="BodyText" /><BR>
