Grouping Data in ASP.NET Gridview Control

In my previous post, I explained how to group HTML table rows with jQuery. This post explains How to do same thing using ASP.NET Gridview control on server side. The logic is same to check row by row. If data is same in next row’s cell, hide next row’s cell and increase rowspan of current row’s cell.

HTML Table Row Grouping with jQuery

It’s easy to group data in SQL statement, but if you have to display it using HTML table, It’s not drag and drop as in reporting environment. One way to group on server side and draw tr td accordingly. But If it is already created with tons of functionality attached, It’s risky to change. Don’t worry, you can do it easily with jQuery.

Display File Download Count in WordPress

In some posts, I’ve attached source code and files allowing user to download. Now I’m interested to check how many times file downloaded and how to display it with download link as in other sites. I found different WordPress plugins like WP-DownloadManager, Downloads Manager, WordPress Download Monitor, WordPress Download Counter..etc. All are doing file management perfectly, But I like WordPress Download Monitor the most. It allows you to upload files, store it on your server and share it with your readers. You can install and activate it easily as normal plugin.

Month Range Picker using jQuery UI Datepicker

In this article, we’ll implement month range selection feature in which user can select start and end months to get monthly data and we don’t want to add one more external library for this if jQuery UI is already being used in the project. We’ll use jQuery UI date-picker to show month and year only to select month range.

Dynamically Enable or Disable ASP.NET Validator and Page.IsValid

In my post, I discussed different client side APIs and Methods of asp.net validator Controls. Now suppose if you have customized validation on client side, what’ll happen on server side? We need to do same on server side. Let’s understand this step by step by taking same example. Suppose you have to disable password’s requiredfieldvalidator when ‘Allow me‘ checkbox is true. You have disabled validator on checkbox click using ValidatorEnable javascript method. Now on server side button click, if you validate and check for isValid, it is always false and you will see error message in validationsummary even if checkbox is checked. Client side bypasses validation but on server side it’s stucked and our object is defeated.
