datetime conversions (en-GB) (en-US) giving errors using calendar extended textbox


I have a site which is in en-GB culture (cannot be changed) and provides dates via a textbox with a calendar extender in this format  DD/MM/YYYY. This then populates an sqlparameter

The db server is in en-US and expects dates in this format:  YYYY-MM-DD 00:00:00.000

I have tried many many different methods to get this converted, ready to submit to db but am being presented with errors. Please can you show me the necessary syntax?



get the handle of System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox



I am trying to make a textbox re-size to fit the text provided. I found a solution in C#:

Graphics g = Graphics.FromHwnd(textBox1.Handle);
SizeF f = g.MeasureString("String to fit", textBox1.Font);
textBox1.Width = (int)(f.Width);
// textBox1.Height = (int)(f.Height); // if required...
textBox1.Text = "String to fit";

I'm using VB.net and the Textbox1.handle is not present in VB.net. The project is running on .NET Framework 1.1

Is there another way to get the handle of the TextBox?

Thanks in advance!



Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Highlighting Rows with TextBox OnFocus

In another article I explained that how you can make the rows of the GridView control clickable and highlight them when they are clicked. In this article I will explain that how you can highlight the GridView rows when you focus on the TextBox which is contained inside the GridView control.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key
