Barcode and Databases

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Can anyone point me to a resource for how to build barcode reading into an ASP.net app? I need to scan a card and have it enter in the database that a person was present at a program that day.

Toolbox: Analyze HTTP Traffic, Synchronize Databases, and More


Debugging Web applications can be a difficult process due to the logical, physical, and temporal differences between the mishmash of technologies that comprise such an application. For bugs that arise from the HTML and script received by the browser or in the transfer or request of a page's markup, developers often adopt archaic debugging techniques, such as using View Source and Notepad to scrutinize the contents received by the browser.

Linq with two databases (oracle and sql server)


i have a problem to bring the data from the oracle (external database) and the sql server together (with similar data). The linq entities are linked to each other. The structure is like different countries with different cities and so on. To display these "non original linq objects" i need to put them into entities (linked to each other). Now i add some of them to my sql database. But for every entity i must check the connection to the other objects i don't want to add and delete them (otherwise linq will add all the connected objects, even those I don't want to add). If this goes wrong the whole input-method crashes. Is there any other possibility, except from checking every single entity and removing unwanted connections, to handle this procedure?
Thanks a lot, preg

How to stop blurring of barcode images

I have a custom DLL that has a function that takes a string and returns a raster image(PNG) of a Code 128 barcode. That works fine, no problem. The barcode rendered does *not* use a font, it physically renders rectangles with precise pixel widths to generate the barcode. This is necessary because the laser expects a discrete stop of a "bar" and beginning of a "space". -- Image properties->Size is set to "Original Size" So I look at the report viewer, and I see barcodes. Cool. HOWEVER ... when I zoom in at about 400% I start to see blurring at the edges of the bars. It also prints this way. This is unacceptable. So then, within report viewer, (this is the same report!) I export the report to PDF. No blurring, not at 500%, not at 2000% not at any zoom level. In the PDF, there is a sharp, precise, quantum drop from black to white with *no* blurring whatsoever. On pixel is 0x000000 and the next is 0xFFFFFF. The PDF also prints this way. This is correct behavior. I cannot have the user export the report to PDF before printing it. This is a production shop, and I can't have folks taking twice as long to do a task. MY QUESTION: How do I instruct, how do I force SSRS to simply render the image as I have presented it and not tinker with it? This is a bit annoying. If my function returns a 200x50 image, SSRS may trust that that is what is t

(SQL Server 2008) Exporting entire databases to SQL CREATE/INSERT statements

Hi All, I'm looking for a way to export SQL Server 2008 (Express or otherwise) databases to CREATE/INSERT statements.  I've seen a million threads (give or take) with instructions for creating large (often illegible) TSQL scripts for the task.  However, I'm hoping that this isn't the only way by which to do it.  I have need to regularly back up the data from existing MS SQL Server DBs (which are used by some of our standard apps) to various other MySQL and PostgreSQL databases (which are used by PHP and Rails web front ends).  I need to export them from MS SQL Server 2008 to a general format (i.e. INSERT statements) and perform regex edits on the file as necessary. FYI, I've written a few applications that connect to the various DBs over ODBC, etc. and transfer the data row by row.  You can image how painful this process is... I realize that there are many tools that do this.  However, most of them approach the issue from the standpoint of migration, and not that of regularly scheduled backups.  Also, this tool will need to eventually be distributed so having to purchase a license for the migration app for each person/group simply isn't feasible. Anyway, if you guys have a quality, straightforward solution to this issue, it would certainly be appreciated. Best.
