hi all,,,

help me

how to reverse header column and data column in detailsview ??


Try adding dir="rtl" either to the GridView (if possible) or to a containing div. I can't try it out right now. If that is not what you wanted to do, please add some information.

Well if you can't get the direction inversion to work, you can define all your Columns as TemplateFields and implement the reverse direction yourself. The use of templatefields is described here[^]. You just add two
constructs per templatefield and you are done.

i saw your upddated solution
i define my columns as TemplateFields but i can't implement the reverse direction in TemplateFields

your link not helpful
So what is your problem? Just do it like this in the template field:
<td><label text="HeaderText1" /></td>
<td><label text="<%=Eval("fieldname")%>" /></td>

That is what you mean by reverse direction right?

but i don't want to do it by converting to template field ..i convert direction of table to rtl but direction of columns of detailsview not reversed
what solution??

Why not convert it to a template field? It is a good solution. Maybe the direction thing does not work, it would be a hack anyways, and I feel this is not actually documented, so who knows when it will break. Visual studio helps you convert all your bound fields into templates fields. Do that and you win a lot of control. I end up having 80% template fields in my applications.

If you really want to do the direction thing, google for it, I am sure somebody out there figured it out, I have no expience with it.
According to this discussion in the forums on[^] the dir="rtl" needs to be set in the table element.

Crazy ;) So the TS needs to wrap the GV into a table and set dir="rtl" in it...
