Object DataSource With Paramaters

Prefix the Business Logic Layer method that accepts parameters with the following. otherwise the object DataSource will not identify this method that accepts parameters:



    public static DataTable GetInvestorFilingDataTable(InvestorDataFeedType feedType)

        List<InvestorFilingData> entireList = new List<InvestorFilingData>();
        entireList = DAL.GetInvestorFilingData(feedType);

        DataTable datatable = ListToDataTable(entireList);

        return datatable;


Then to pass params to this method within your datasource specify SelectParameter’s:

<asp:ObjectDataSource ID="DataSourceFilingsDT" runat="server" SelectMethod="GetInvestorFilingDataTable"
    TypeName="BLL" OnSelected="DataSourceFilingsDT_Selected" 
        <asp:Parameter Name="feedType" Type="Object" />

To pass values to the method within the DataSource:

 protected void DataSourceFilingsDT_Selecting(object sender, ObjectDataSourceSelectingEventArgs e)
        // Change the Parameter of feedType within GetInvestorFilingDataTable
        e.InputParameters["feedType"] = DataToDisplay;
