I have an ASP.NET DataList, with a footer defined thus:
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlStatusList" runat="server">
<input id="txtNotes" type="text" placeholder="Notes" />
<asp:Button runat="server" type="button" Text="Add" ID="btnAdd"></asp:Button>
What I'm looking to do, is, on click of btnAdd, get the values from txtNotes and ddlStatusList, but I can't work out how to access the controls, let alone the values.
I can't follow something like this because I won't be able to check if my button has been clicked (as is possible with a checkbox), and even then, I'm not sure if I'll be able to use findControl as demonstrated. (Does a DataList's footer behave differently to an item?)
I can't use the Button's commandName & commandValue attributes because, when databound, the text inputted won't exist and therefore I can't set the CommandValue.
I have tried using a LinkButton rather than a normal .NET Button, but come accross the same issue, whereby I cannot work out how to get the values from the TextBox/DropDownList
