How To Set a Date Format In GridView Using ASP.NET 2.0

A very common desire is to set a column of a gridview to display just the month, day and year of a DateTime type. The problem is the by default, the HtmlEncode property of the boundfield attribute (

How to format and update GridView and DataGrid rows using JQuery

The behavior described in this question is as expected. When you set text of a cell in grid, it directly affects HTML that is going to be rendered. When you set text value of a cell, it means that you are setting innerText of the cell. The column that GridView creates for command fields (Edit, Delete and Select) are a (anchor) or button elements. So you can see what will happen if you set text value in that cell. It will wipe out those link or button controls and replace them with simple text string.

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?


Format Generic List Bound to Gridview


I have a generic list of a custom type. The custom type has a string and double.

I'm binding the list to a gridview and it outputs everything fine.

I'm trying to format the double column into a currency format. It is in a template field as I'm calculating a running total. I pass the value to a function that returns a double and adds the current value to a running total which I will show in the footer.

The format is not changing to currency as expected when using String.Format("{0:c}", GetTotal(Convert.ToDouble(Eval("Amount"))))

Any ideas on what might be going on and how to fix this?

ReportViewer :: Failed to enable constraints. But my statement is valid!!

  • A
  • n error has occurred during report processing.
      • Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.
        • Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints.

    Why do I keep getting this error, even when not using any data on the report. When I run the query in SQL server I get a resultset. However when I try to render the report I get this error.


    Whats wrong with this statement


    Im trying to updated some old ASP pages with some new .net pages and cant seem to get this update statement to work. I need to update the current ASP code below and then once thats working im going to use that same statement in a procedure for all our new .Net pages..

    So can anyone see what im doing wrong by inserting the 2nd column to the update statement?

    strSqual = "update tas set date_completed='" & TransDate & ", trans_id=" & InsertedTransID & "' where date_completed is null and sercontract_id="& strContractID & " and DATEDIFF(dd,task_due_date,'" & strProcDate & "')<=14"


    I am trying to add an extra column to the update, but not sure if the syntax is correct.

    If Statement Issue



    This is very strange to me. I have spent 2hrs looking into this inside out , but dont seem to get it

    I have an if statement that inserts data into the database. But i check to make sure the name is not entered twice. Now when the name is already in the db, then it should insert else put out a message saying its already in the db

    My code works fine except that  when its not in the db, its inserts but still puts out the message that says "Name is already in use" Not sure if am not seeing something. But thought i did bring it to the forum. Here is my code...Pretty simple

    Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click

            Dim objConnection As SqlConnection
            Dim objCommand As SqlCommand
            Dim strSQLQuery1 As String


            ' If there's nothing to Add for then don't search
            ' o/w build our SQL Query and execute it.
            If String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtAdd.Text) Or Leadbank.SelectedValue = "000" Then


    statement cannot appear outside of a method body
