SelectorField control not available on ASPX page?

May 11, 2008 at 12:35 AM
I'm trying to use the SelectorField in an .aspx page and can't figure out how to implement it in my gridview's TemplateField column. After registering the assembly, I can see most of the MetaBuilders.WebControls in IntelliSense on the aspx page, but I can't see any of the controls that are inherited from System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlField (like SelectorField, BooleanField and LookupField). (I am able to instantiate a SelectorField within my code-behind file but I would really like to be able to use SelectorField in the .aspx page. )

Here is my code:

          <add tagPrefix="mb" namespace="MetaBuilders.WebControls" assembly="MetaBuilders.WebControls"/>

(aspx page)
    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" >
            <asp:BoundField DataField="BlacklistUrlId" HeaderText="Id" SortExpression="Id"></asp:BoundField>
                    <mb:SelectorField SelectionMode="Multiple" AutoPostBack="false" Visible="true"/>

Can anyone please tell me if there is something I'm missing about how to use this control? An example page would be extremely helpful!

Many thanks,

finally figured it out - SelectorField belongs at the column level, not within a TemplateField like most of the other MetaBuilder.WebControls...
