Need function to format numeric information

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am working with ASP.NET with Visual Basic.  I have a field called "Amount" that contains numeric information (15000.000).  When I display this information in a field called "Sales",  I want it to appear as 15,000.00

What is the name of the function that I should use?

'No information was found about this pixel format error' on image binding

I've read all the posts I could find on this error but I'm still stumped.

I have a user control with a dependency property named Image.

In the user control I have a stack panel that contains an image and I set the binding in the xaml

<Image HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="3,0,0,0" Width="85" Height="75" Source="{Binding ElementName=UserControl, Path=Image}"/>

In a code behind I try to set the image for an instance of this control named WeatherNB

                BitmapImage bi1 = new BitmapImage();
                bi1.UriSource = new Uri(currentImage, UriKind.Relative);
                this.WeatherNB.Image = bi1;

but I get the following error

Unhandled Exception: System.NotSupportedException: No information was found about this pixel format.

Problem converting varchar values to numeric format for comparison


I've got an SQL-2008 database containing our network inventory (it's from LanSweeper - a low-end and very recommendable network management tool). In a table are all logins with the IP-address of that moment, where the IP-address is defined as VARCHAR(15).

I need to compare IP addresses with those in the table defining the IP segments, where the segment addresses are also defined as VARCHAR(15).

In order to be able to compare reliably, I need to convert the addresses to numeric format. I cooked up the following SELECT statement for that:

SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT Ipaddress, (
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000000000 +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000000) +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000 +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1) + 1, 3) AS DEC) AS IP, Computername, logontime, Username, ADsite,
FROM dbo.tblCPlogoninfo

Is there no built in function in C# that determines if a variable is numeric or not?

There is one in VB.  That seems like such a basic thing,  I can't beleive there is no funtion (or method) for that.

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.

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"))))

Information about sessions


Some questions about sessions:

I know sessions information is stored in the form of cookie and you can use qurystring for that if you set cookieless session in web.config. But I don't exactly understand the scope of a session.

What I believe is when you login to a website, a session cookie is created and the scope of that session is within that page only. If you close the browser that session gets killed and when you open the browser again and go to that site then a new session is created ie a new session is created on every request. Is this correct?

But I have seen in many websites, even if you close the browser and open it again the session is not killed, how does that happen?

Can anyone clear out and explain the scope/lifetime of sessions

ERROR [HY000] [Informix .NET provider][Informix]Database locale information mismatch

The web server where the web application hosted is running IBM Informix Connect 2.81. There is no such error before the upgrade is done.

As a developer, i have IBM Informix Client-SDK 2.90 installed on my local pc and debug the page where the read is needed from infimacs but no such error found.

The error come out only when it is hosted on the web server where IBM Informix Connect 2.81 is installed.

I have gone through many articles and it suggest me to set the environement  variable in the server :  DB_LOCALE=en_us.819.

I haven't try this solution but i think that this might not be the best solution.

Is it possible to to to have this settin
