            byte[] todecode_byte = Convert.FromBase64String(sData);
            int charCount = utf8Decode.GetCharCount(todecode_byte, 0, todecode_byte.Length);
            char[] decoded_char = new char[charCount];

How to Pass higher Length of Byte Array to the remoting method

Dear all,I am using a windows application and the businness logic is present in the remote server.Once particular method takes bytearray as input parameter...Whenever the method call is made the function returns value .This is limited for the particular bytearray length. (4109228 bytes).If the length of bytearray crosses 4109228 bytes.I am getting an error that "input stream is not valid binary format".How to Pass higher Length of Byte Array to the remoting method... Greater than 4 MB?I believe something is missing in web.config or app.config...?What could be the issue...? Any sugesstions are welcome....ThanksRavikumar

fixed length array in CodeTypeReference?

I am trying to generate a fixed length array: e.g.: private object[5] _values;   I can generate member fine without the size but would prefer to have the length set at generation time.

What would make array.length return an incorrect number?


[sub-titled: array.length is working correctly, but Nick has almost certainly done something stupid.] 

This is probably obvious, but has got me mystified.  I have an array which is being created like this:

var TempPoints = $get('<%=PointList.ClientID%>').value;
PointsList = eval(TempPoints);

The field coming in from the server is formatted like this:

[[1,2], [3,4], [5,6], ......... [99, 100]]

So, after the eval has done its work, PointsList is an array of objects, each of which is an array containing two numbers.  If I then do a PointsList.length, I would expect to see the number of elements in the array.  I then of course need to remember that the array is zero based and that the last element is (PointsList.length - 1).  Well, so I would have thought!

In fact, the length seems to be reporting one more than it should, so the last element is actually (PointsList.length - 2).

That is borne out by what I can see in the Visual Studio debugger:

Visual Studio Screenshot

As you can see there, the array has elements 0 through 138 - but the length is reported as 140.

What am I missing?

Hey there.. i am trying to make an Encrypt and Decrypt method...

            ICryptoTransform cryptoTransform = tdesProvider.CreateEncryptor(symKey, IVKey);
            MemoryStream encryptedStream = new MemoryStream();
            CryptoStream cryptStream = new CryptoStream(encryptedStream, cryptoTransform, CryptoStreamMode.Write);

            cryptStream.Write(inputInBytes, 0, inputInBytes.Length);
            encryptedStream.Position = 0;
            byte[] result = new byte[encryptedStream.Length];
            encryptedStream.Read(result, 0, (int)encryptedStream.Length);

Invalid length parameter passed to the SUBSTRING function


Hi all,

I am having a weird issue after we upgraded our DB server to SQL 2005.

I have a SP used to extract exchange rate, and a job calls this SP daily. This job worked fine on SQL 2000, and works very well in Management studio if I call this SP seperately, but failed in sql job in 2005.

The error statement pointed to:

select left(@row, charindex(',', @row)-1),  REVERSE(left(@reversedrow, charindex(',', @reversedrow)-1))

The error message is:

Invalid length parameter passed to the SUBSTRING function.

Anyone knows what's the difference for LEFT function between sql 2000 and 2005?

Coding / Programming Tips for C#

Using proper guidelines and a template-framed style of coding will really helps developer to enjoy the coding with more understandable, reliable code and application development.

The void is invariant

while back I described a kind of variance that we've supported since C# 2.0. When assigning a method group to a delegate type, such that both the selected method and the delegate target agree that their return type is a reference type, then the conversion is allowed to be covariant. That is, you can say:
