XmlReaderSettings validating XML returns strange message

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I'm fairly new to XML Schema validation. We have XML being imported that must validate against the following schema:


<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
xmlns="http://www.temp.com/ContactsImport" elementFormDefault="qualified">
<xs:element name="Contacts">
<xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" name="Contact" minOccurs="1">

sp_help_job returns strange last_run_time value

Sometimes the store procedure sp_help_job last_run_time value is '9500'. Normally it returns values like 1150 which I thought indicate time of day, but what does '9500' indicate then?

Data binding - strange error message

Hi, I am getting an inexplicable error message on attempting to run a simple WPF data binding application based on an example with video downloaded from MSDN. VB / VS 2008 Pro / .NET 3.5 SP1 / XP SP3 The error (ex.Message) is "The specified registry key does not exist" in response to an attempt to define the data context to populate a listbox, but no explicit registry operation is involved at all. The code is: Private taTable1 As New D1DataSetTableAdapters.Table1TableAdapter Private D1Data As New D1DataSet . . . Try     Me.taTable1.Fill(Me.D1Data.Table1)     Me.DataContext = Me.D1Data.Table1        ' this statement generates the exception Catch ex As Exception The error message is giving no obvious clue.  What is going on? P.S. The MSDN sample application uses the following code to sort the listbox items: Me.DataContext = From p In Me.dsProduct.Product Order By p.Name This construct does not work when I try to use it - VS 2008 reports that "'Name' is not a member of 'System.Data.DataRow'".  How may this error be avoided? JPL

show a "no results" message if a db query returns nothing

I inherited some C# code behind that queries a database table and need to add something that displays a "No results" message (using a Label web control, perhaps) if the query doesn't return any records. I'm just learning C# but am coming up short on how to do this. Would anyone be kind enough to point me to an example, or demonstrate? Thanks a lot. Here's the code I inherited (the programmer who wrote this is no longer available). This is the code behind from the search results page:using System; using System.Text; using System.Data; using System.Data.Common; using System.Data.SqlClient; using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Web; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; namespace Maine_Innkeeper_Site_2010 { public partial class lodging_search_output : System.Web.UI.Page { protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { string sql = Session["logdingSearchSql"].ToString(); SqlCommand cmd = common.openDatabase(); cmd.CommandText = sql; string PreviousTown = ""; try { StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader(); sb.Append("<ul class=lodging-search-initial-results>"); while (rdr.Read()) {

Display a message if query returns no data


I added a text box to my report reading: "No Data Matches Search Criteria".  I tried to add a visibility expression: =iif((Rownumber("SalesCube")=0),1,0)

I get "The Hidden expression usied...returned a data type that is not valid"

What am I doing wrong???


Opening file causes strange message


when I save the file that is returned by Handler and try to open it I get the following message:"The file you trying to open, 'Users.xls', is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupt and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

How to fix this?

Here the code of the handler:

using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.IO;
using System.Data;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Text;

namespace WebApplication1
    public class Handler2 : IHttpHandler
        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
            string query = "SELECT FirstName, LastName, Email, Phone FROM tblUser WHERE IsSubscribed = 1";
            // As QueryDataSql = New QueryDataSql(query)

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            GridView gv = new GridView();


            DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();

SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() returns -1 when doing Insert / Update / Delete

Sometimes you end up with a return value of -1 when using the SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery method.

Why is that?

Well, the ExecuteNonQuery method is there for statements for changing data, ie. DELETE / UPDATE /INSERT, and the returned value are the number of rows affected by that statement.

When checking the documentation we can see that there are some conditions that return -1.

For UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements, the return value is the number of rows affected by the command.

When a trigger exists on a table being inserted or updated, the return value includes the number of rows affected by both the insert or update operation and the number of

rows affected by the trigger or triggers. For all other types of statements, the return value is -1. If a rollback occurs, the return value is also -1.

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!




LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out. 



    protected void enterBTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //make new data context

        SHCDataContext insNewAll = new SHCDataContext();
        //LINQ to check if customer exists in database
        var checkExisting = from c in insNewAll.Customers
                            where c.custLastName.Contains(custLastNameTB.Text.ToString())
                            select c.custLastName;
        //make list to store values

Any idea on how to perform this?
