Add Image in between Rows of a GridView using C#

again i come up with some new tips on Gridview , there are lots many things are there in Gridview . now my this article is describe you how to add the image on Gridivew, you can say after perticular records then you can use " OnRowDataBound " Property or " onRowCreated " like first 5 records then some distinguished between next 5 records like that.
here are the stpes how you can do that.

1. Create one Application
2. Add the Gridview control on a page ,also add the data source for same ,and just simply link it with some sample table
3. consider below is your Gridview code

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AllowPaging="True"
AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="CustomerID"
runat="server" OnRowDataBound="GridView1_RowDataBound" AllowSorting="True">
<asp:BoundField DataField="ID" HeaderText="ID" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" />

4. now suppose if i want to add new row which is background , then i have to add Gridview_RowDataBound event , this will enable you to provide the Event-Handling method which will perform the Custom routine option. that can be like modiffy the row, add the new record into the row and so for that we are adding page level varible call pSize which will hold the Row position where we want to add that image column, with same also add that image to your Gridview
below code will help you .

static int pSize;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
pSize = 0;

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)

TableCell TabCell = new TableCell();
Image img = new Image();
img.ImageUrl = "Photo.gif";

GridView gView = (GridView)sender;
int colSpan = gView.Columns.Count;
TabCell.Attributes["ColSpan"] = colSpan.ToString();

GridViewRow gRow = new GridViewRow(-1, -1, DataControlRowType.DataRow, DataControlRowState.Normal);

gRow.Cells.Add(TabCell); // add the cells to the gridviewrow

Table newtbl = (Table)e.Row.Parent;

if(pgSize == 0)
pgSize = GridView1.PageCount / 2;

if (Convert.ToDouble(e.Row.DataItemIndex + 1) / Convert.ToDouble(pgSize) == 1.0)
newtbl.Controls.AddAt(gView.Controls[0].Controls.Count, gRow);
// add 10 to the pgsize so that the image can be displayed
// at rows 5, 15, 25 and so on..
pgSize = pgSize + 10;

here you can see how its look like:

hope this example will helps you .

youtube search api using C#

hi , i have allready specify how you can use youtube api in your .net application, here is my next post on same topic , you can add Youtube Search widget on your web site using API SEARCH method ,XmlDataSource control can be used in ASP.Net to bind the Youtube API RSS response to display the Youtube videos.

if you are using .Net then Repeater Control is one of the best option to display result . at first you need to create api method url to retrive the result from youtube in terms of RSS Feed. you can also Use of XmlNamespaceManager to read that Rss feed having media namespace that provides the syndication content about Youtube videos

- Google Code for Youtube API and Tools

Steps to add simple YouTube search page to your ASP.NET web site

  • first get a free Developer Key:

  • now you need to construct uri like this

    string uri = "";
    uri += "method=youtube.videos.list_by_tag";
    uri += "&dev_id=" + developerKey;
    uri += "&tag=" + txtSearch.Text;
    uri += "&page=1&per_page=50"; //

  • now you can get the returned result in an XML document,now load the XML into a DataSet using its ReadXml method.

now create one page and in that create one text box and one submit button
put this code on codebehind

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string developerKey = "" // put your key here;
if (developerKey.Length == 0)
Response.Write("You need to get a YouTube

developer key
// Call the YouTube api to list all videos for a tag
string uri = "";
uri += "method=youtube.videos.list_by_tag";
uri += "&dev_id=" + developerKey;
uri += "&tag=" + txtSearch.Text;
uri += "&page=1&per_page=50"; // you can add custom paging if desired
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
DataTable dt = ds.Tables[2];
this.DataList1.DataSource = dt;

and here is your datalist code

<asp:Datalist id="DataList1" runat="server" CellPadding="2" CellSpacing ="2" BorderStyle="None">
<FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" ForeColor="Black"></FooterStyle>
<tr > <td colspan="2" align=center> <b> <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.title") %> </b> </td> </tr>
<td style="width:100px;Height:20px;">
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("url") %>' >
<asp:Image ID="Img" ImageUrl='<%#Eval("thumbnail_url") %>' runat="Server" />
<td style="width:450px;Height:20px;"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.description") %></td>
