DateTime.ToString("h") not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a situation in which I want to get the hour component of a DateTime,
but I want the 12-hour value that would go with an AM/PM. The only way I
could find to do this was to use a date format string. Since h is the format
character used for this, I figured I would use the method:


However, this would give me an error. But when I used it with a space and
trimmed it:

..ToString("h ").Trim()

It would work fine. Why am I not allowed to use "h" as a format string?

CompareTo not working for DateTime

Hi,I have a bit of an odd problem. I have a grid that i must load some data to and sort it by date. I implemented CompareTo but it doesn't seem to work at all.The objects in the grid seem to be put there at random. I tried to implement compareto in 3 ways. None of them worked. I do  the sorting before i bind to the grid.The code for the compareto method is this:public int CompareTo(Issue to) { if (this.LastStatusDate.Year > to.LastStatusDate.Year) return 1; else return 0; if ((this.LastStatusDate.Year == to.LastStatusDate.Year) && (this.LastStatusDate.Month > to.LastStatusDate.Month)) return 1; else return 0; if ((this.LastStatusDate.Year == to.LastStatusDate.Year) && (this.LastStatusDate.Month == to.LastStatusDate.Month) && (this.LastStatusDate.Day > to.LastStatusDate.Day)) return 1; else return 0; if ((this.LastStatusDate.Year == to.LastStatusDate.Year) && (this.LastStatusDate.Month == to.LastStatusDate.Month) && (this.LastStatusDate.Day == to.LastStatusDate.Day) && (this.LastStatusDate.Hour > to.LastStatusDate.Hour)) return 1; else return 0; }The other 2 versions i tried were:public int CompareTo(Issue to) {

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Server side validation of Fileupload control not working



I've tried this method in my code behind to try and validate that the Fileupload control has a file or not. I get the error message the the event "Server Validate" cannot be found. Can anyone tell why? Thanks.

' Get file name

        Dim uploadAvatar As FileUpload = DirectCast(AdvertisementForm.FindControl("uploadAvatar"), FileUpload)

        Dim UploadFileName As String = uploadAvatar.PostedFile.FileName

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?

I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's

URL Rewriter.net - not working



I have a website that uses Querystrings to determine what content to show on a page. I would like to be able rewrite these URL's to become Search Engine Friendly URLs. So for example I would like to change http://www.website.co.uk/Company/Company/Conference.aspx?WebPage=ImportantDates to http://www.website.co.uk/Company/Company/Conference.aspx/ImportantDates.

I have been reading the following article by Scott Gu - http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/26/tip-trick-url-rewriting-with-asp-net.aspx - who suggested using a HTTPModule such as URL Rewriter.net (http://urlrewriter.net/).

So I have done this and added the URLRewriter.dll file in my bin directory and altered the web.config (following Scott Gu's approach #2). However my URL's are not changing and I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have added the following in the web.config to try and change the URL's.


    <rewrite url="~/UKAIS/ConferenceWebPage.aspx?WebPage=(.+)$" to="~/UKAIS/ConferenceWebPage.aspx/$1" />

However my webpage URL remains with the ?WebPage querystring.

I am really stuck and any help would be very much appreciated.
