I have a User object, with an Organisation property. A few super users are authorised to alter a User's Organisation. Therefore I would like to control the enabled property of my Organisation UI Control (a DropDownList) by binding to my User objects IsOrganisationAdministrator property.
In reality the IsOrganisationAdministrator property looks at a custom Identity Object to find out the CURRENT logged on user's authorisation level.
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Organisation" SortExpression="Organisation">
<asp:DropDownList ID="OrganisationDropDownList" runat="Server" Width="100%"
DataSourceID="OrganisationListDataSource" DataTextField="Value" DataValueField="Key"
enabled='<%# Bind("IsOrganisationAdmin") %>'
SelectedValue='<%# Bind("OrganisationID") %>' />
I tried controlling the enabled status in page load, but it seems to get overriden somewhere else.
Plowking replied on Friday, February 08, 2008I'm sorry this is working now. I had tried adding the IsOrganisationAdmin property to my PropertiesToIgnore list in my datasource_InsertObject and Update_Object event handlers, and it didnt work first time round, but now it's playing ball...
Csla.Data.DataMapper.Map(e.Values, obj, PropertiesToIgnore.ToArray)
It's nice that it works :)
