Create validation formating

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I want to create a sort of validation formatting (like regex).  It doesn't have to actual validate; just make it easier for the user to enter the correct number of character needed.  I want something like domain: [xxx].[xxx].[xxx] (so it only allows 9 numbers, 2 periods).

So for instance when the user moves to the field they would be presented with one field with ability to enter 3 numbers.3 numbers.3 numbers

Any Ideas?  Thanks,

XmlReader.Create(textReader, XmlReaderSettings) Validation Issue

For the most part, when I perform an XmlReader.Read() I am catching validation errors based on my schemas.  This, however, is a large group of schemas with several imports and includes.  My question is why I'm having validation errors in two places that seem to be defined in the schema.   Here's an example:   Schema 1 (you can see that IdentificationType has sub-elements for IdentificationID and IdentificationCode):   <xsd:complexType name="IdentificationType">                 <xsd:annotation>                         <xsd:documentation>A data type for a representation of an identity.</xsd:documentation>                         <xsd:appinfo>                                 <i:Base i:namespace="http://niem.gov/niem/structures/2.0" i:name="Object"/>               &nb

How to create HTML from XSLT with actual formating

Hi, I am creating HTML script using XSLT using an XML file. I am creating that input XML file from the database values. The database values are contains the data with some html formatting tags like <b>values</b> etc. for Ex:I have the table.EmployeeID CommentsEMP101   Some normal comment with <b>Value with bol</b> I required to create XML file with the fomatted comment, but when I create XML it contains &gt;&lt; etc., like <Employees><Emp id="EMP101"> <Comments>Some normal comment with &lt;b&gt;Value with bol&lt;/b&gt;<Comments></Emp></Employees> When I create HTML using XSLT, the values again contains the &gt;&lt; characters instead of the actual formating what the database stores. Please let me know how to solve this issue. I required the output HTML will be inthe same format what the database stored. Many Thanks,Kelvin.

Easier way to programiclly create validation controls.


I know you can create validation controls in C# code

        RequiredFieldValidator Name = new RequiredFieldValidator();
        Name.ControlToValidate = "ControlName";

        RegularExpressionValidator name = new RegularExpressionValidator();
        name.ControlToValidate = "ControlName";
        name.ValidationExpression = "xx/xx/xxxx";

but is there a way to do it in a single line? In a recent post I had I learned a one line method to make textboxes and drop down lists

        Label lblReleaseDate = DynamicControlCreator.Label("lblReleaseDate" + i, " Release Date (MM/DD/YYYY): ");
        TextBox tbReleaseDate = DynamicControlCreator.TextBox("tbReleaseDate" + i);
        Label lblRegion = DynamicControlCreator.Label("lblRegion" + i, " Region: ");
        DropDownList ddlRegion = DynamicControlCreator.DropDownList("ddlRegion" + i, Region);

So,  is there a oneliner I can use for the validators?

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Create an API (aspx vs mvc)


Hi everybody!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, so, sorry if it's not. I have to create a web application. I can handle that. But, it has a requirement I've never done before. I need to create an API for that application, so other apps can get or set information from/to my webapp.

I've been searching a lot and still don't have a starting point. Seems that MVC is really good to do that, but I'm not familiar with MVC, so I would need a starting point. I was thinking to do it in aspx (Framework 4), but do not know how to do that with aspx either.

Can anyone help me to get started with this?

Thanks in advance

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.
