I use Visual Web Developer 2008 Express.
I have Label1 in a DataList ItemTemplate. I wish to use a button to get the text from that label and add it to text in TextBox1 which is elsewhere on the page.
I know how to do this from a standard label on a ASP.NET web page but cannot work out how to get the text from a label inside a DataList ItemTemplate.
This is what I thought I should do:-
Protected Sub submit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles submit.Click TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text & " " & DataList1.ItemTemplates.ItemTemplate.Label2.Text End Sub
I thought that because “ DataList1.ItemTemplates.ItemTemplate.Label2 - System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label “ - is what is written in the properties window header when I select the label in the DataList template.
When I try that, I get a Blue Squiggle under "DataList1.ItemTemplates" and if I hover over the squiggle the error box comes up saying " 'ItemTemplates' is not a member of 'System.Web.UI.WeControls.DataList'
Thanks for any help on offer
