Bug report: This control doesn't work in a FormView

Jun 26, 2010 at 12:02 AM

I can put this control inside a Formview, but then all I get is a nice blue bar at the bottom of the area with no controls.


Anyone have a workaround?

I do not beleve i have used this control within a formview. If you post or send me a code sample of your issue I can take a look at it.

As I have never heard anything again, I will assume this control does not work in a Form View.

Dear Medmerd - I got the FreeTextBox working instead. However, I thought I'd mention I think this has to do with your naming situation. If I have an editbox called "emailtext" instead of a FormView called FormView1, it needs to be referenced as "FormView1_emailtext". Just FYI... -- John

For those contacting me about this:

I gave up and went to FreeTextBox instead.  Works great.
