How to pad spaces in a character field with zeroes.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hello,

I have a field in my table that is 14 characters long and may have digits in random positions within the field.  I need to select the field and have zeroes replace all of the blank spaces

e.g

Original field                     Padded with spaces

  1  2  3                            00100200300000

    3   1                             00030010000000

 

Can somebody please help with developing a query to satisfy the requirement.

 

Thanks.

Binding list to form not working with '&' character in list field data

  
Hi, I have a SharePoint list with a field called Title. I have a form based on this list with the field bound to the form as a label (for workflow to access). Here is the code for the form field. <asp:Label runat="server" id="ff2{$Pos}" text="{@Title}" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff2',$Pos),'Text','','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@Title')}" /> I have a workflow that runs through a form action button which take ff2 (title) and  does other stuff. The problem I have is with records where the value of 'title' contains the '&' character (example ab&cd). Blank is pulled in by the workflow when I get the value of ff2. I am guessing it has to do with the data binding and/or escape (special) characters coming through but I don't know how to fix it. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Reformatting variable character date field in custom table

  

I have a custom table with a variable character field storing a date. It is currently in the format YYYY/DD/MM plus a time stamp. I want it in the format MM/DD/YYYY without a time stamp.

I've tried a few CONVERT and UPDATE statements, with no change. The syntax is okay, and in some cases the statement has an effect (such as cutting off all but one character of the time stamp), but does not reformat the date. I've also tried resetting the fields as DATE fields or SMALLDATETIME fields in the custom table, and I receive errors after doing that.

Unable to get all the values from a field

then in write to a DataTable as follows

 DataTable dtResult1 = dsSearch.Tables["RESULTSET"];

Individual field - MySQL

  

Hi


I was wondering how to recieve an individual field from my MySQL database.

I have been able to get a row, but what I am trying to do is get a name from my database and set it into the HeaderText in my DataGrid.

The way I am trying to do it at the moment is

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
            {
                con.Open();
                formDataGrid.Columns[0].HeaderText = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |
                    CommandBehavior.SingleResult).GetValue(0);
            }

This doesn't seem to get a value from the GetValue, but if use

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
            {
                con.Open();
                formDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |
                    CommandBehavior.SingleResult);
                formDataGrid.DataBind();
            }


it will bind my data into the grid.

I just want to be able to change the HeaderText in the first coulmn of the DataGrid from one table and have the DataGrid be filled from another table.

I can fill the DataGrid its just changing the HeaderText that I am having trouble with.

Any help?

DirectX 8.0: Enhancing Real-Time Character Animation with Matrix Palette Skinning and Vertex Shaders

  

DirectX 8.0 allows the creation of smooth and realistic character movements that are more life-like than simple articulated structure animations. This is made possible by its improved support for vertex tweening and blended vertex deformations, also known as soft-skinning. After a brief history of the use of these techniques in DirectX, soft-skinning using the fixed function pipeline is discussed. This is followed by the use of matrix palettes from within vertex shaders to create a customized soft-skinning solution that takes advantage of the benefits of vertex shaders, such as hardware acceleration and custom lighting algorithms without the limitations of fixed-function solutions.
