.mdb and C# form question for a Rich Text Box

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Ok heres my question. I have a program that i am writing that uses a .mdb database file. All the fields are set to Memo in the database for the size. My problem is i have a Rich Text Box that is used to gather info before it gets saved to the .mdb file. I narrowed it down to a maximum size problem with the RTB. Is there any way to increase the maximum data size of the RTB so that saving more then 3 sentences won't crash the program and will actually save the 3 sentences +. ?  Or is there some trick to get around that that i am not getting at the moment? So to restate my problem. I can't save anything over roughly 3 sentences from my C# form to a .mdb file without the program kicking out an exception, And the .mdb fields are already set to Memo. Thanks for any help/input in advance. This has been bugging me for a while and i haven't found anything online yet but i will keep searching.

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

  var theInpu

Javascript error on Rich Text Editor of CEWP

Hi all,

I have a problem that is really bugging and I wasn't able to find any workaround all day. I'll try to give as many details as possible:

I'm maintaining several site collections on a single server and this problem occurs only on one of the site collections. However it occurs on all subsites of this collection, it occurs on old pages and newly created pages, even on pages containing only one empty CEWP.

When I'm pressing the button for Rich Text Editor of CEWP I get the following error:

Message: Invalid argument.
Line: 5740
Char: 2
Code: 0
URI: http://www.dyrlaegeankenaevn.dk/_layouts/1030/HtmlEditor.js

I've tracked down the error with IE developer tools and I found that the error pops up in HtmlEditor.js at

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Text Search Strategy Question for the SSIS Gurus...

BACKGROUND: As I have mentioned in some of my other posts I am using SSIS 2005 to replace an existing MS Access 2003 / VBA based ETL engine which I developed some years back.   Part of my existing Access-based ETL performs a text search of the source records and I am now attempting to replicate that functionality in SSIS (replicate in terms of the end-result and not necessarily the methods used to get to that end result).  I have an idea of how I plan to go about this but since am relatively new to SSIS so would greatly appreciate the feedback of those more experienced... DETAILED DESCRIPTION: In the source (Sybase ASE15) database, there is an "object" table (not the actual table name but for illustrative purposes it will suffice).  Within the object table there is a "description" column which is a char(60) datatype.  The description column simply represents a description of the object as defined by the source system end-user. For my ETL solution I allow the ETL administrator to define one or many (1...n) key words or phrases which represent search criteria.  These search criteria are stored in a reference table in my target SQL Server 2005 database (the same database to which my ETL will transform results and store them).  My objective, is as follows:  For each of the 1...n search criteria defined, try and find th

Rich text field showing html code

Query Sharepoint list, rich text columns returning HTML tags

Hi! So I have an issue that maybe someone of you have encountered as well. I am querying a Sharepoint list and creating a report from the data collected from this list. This all works fine except that one of the columns in this list is of the type "Multiple lines of text" and also supports "rich text" with different fonts, sizes and so on. This has the effect that the text returned from this column is wrapped in HTML tags that specifies how the text should be formatted. Naturally I do not want this HTML code to appear in my report so for now I have used custom code to do a string.replace and replaced for example <div></div> and <br> with "". However, this column also has url references to documents and these links shows up like this "/servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx">http://servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx There is some sort of double reference to the document that I guess like the HTML tags are embedded in the answer from the rich text column and this is not so easy to do a string replace on because the url varies with the different document and document names. My question really is if anyone of you have done a similar report that I am doing, and have encountered this fenomen with this sharepoint column and how you did to solve this? I have tried to creat

Rich Text in list forms & date picker

Hi, I was hoping that someone could help me on a few issues. I have created a custom list form in sharepoint designer to display the contents of my list in a nice format. I have also customised the edit form for the list. I am having a problem with special characters now showing up when they are being entered (the HTML does not seem to be parsed on the output). I would like to make a description field in my list edit form a rich text box, is this possible? This is the code I am using at the moment for the text box: <asp:TextBox runat="server" id="ff5{$Pos}" text="{@status}" textmode="multiline" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff5',$Pos),'Text','TextChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@status')}" Width="600px" Height="100px" /> And this is the code that I am using on the display side of the list to show the status update: <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="ddwrt:AutoNewLine(string(@status))" /> Is there code that I can use on the data entry side that will show a rich text box? Also then I will need to change the tag on the display end so it parses the HTML? In addition to this, is there specific code for a 'date picker' ? At the moment my date entry box is just a standard text box, is there code I can u
