How to Sleep/Delay within a "for" loop in C# ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I would like to have a code for an image slide show. Images should be displayed for a give time, e.g. 5 sec. "Thred.Sleep()" seems not working for this purpose. What is the best way ?

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

for each loop



Need help in for each loop. i'm poor in for each loop. i wanna create a for each loop that can give me 2 value in each rows.

i create a for loop.. but is a mulitple rows. Anyone can help ?

here is my code.

Dim x As Integer, y As Double, x1 As Integer

        Dim d As Date, prevD As Date
        Dim d1 As TimeSpan

        temp_sec = ac.getTempTime(ddl_date.SelectedValue, ddl_id.SelectedValue)

        For I As Int32 = 0 To temp_sec.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
            If I Mod 1 = 0 Then
                ' To prevent list out of bounds
                If I + 1 < temp_sec.Tables(0).Rows.Count Then
                    d = temp_sec.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(0)
                    prevD = temp_sec.Tables(0).Rows(I + 1).Item(0)
                    d1 = prevD - d
                    x = d1.TotalSeconds
                    x = x1 + x
                    y = temp_sec.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(1)
                    list.Add(x, y)
                    x1 = x
                End If
            End If

Loop for every record


Hi guys.

I've got a simple table with an ID, a NAME and an ARCHIVE booleen.

I want to write piece of code that goes through each record and...

If ARCHIVE is false and a folder hasn't been created for it, it will create it and go to the next record.

If ARCHIVE is false and a folder has been created for it, it will do nothing and go to the next record.

If ARCHIVE is true the whole folder will be moved to another folder and go to the next record.

When all records have been checked, the code will end.

I was thinking of using a SQL count to find out how many records there were and making a loop that starts at record one. runs the folder checking/creating/archiving code then +1 until the loop ends but I couldn't work out how to assign the query results to an integer...

I'm not asking for anyone to write the code. I think I probably already know 80% of the theory behind doing this I just can't glue it all together. I know you can do the folder stuff with the System.IO Directory Class...

Anyway, all input is welcome. Cheers guys!

Loop with DataReader


Hi.  I am having a really hard time with this code trying to loop through a datareader, and then enter the data into another table.  The logic is that I get 2 columns path and document_no from an Oracle Database.  I then need to check if the file in the path column is a valid path.  If it is not valid, it should be inserted into a SQL Server 2005 database.  My code is below, can anyone help?  I'm getting a headache from it.  If any further info is needed just let me know.  Thanks. 

Do While oraReader.Read()
                path1 = oraReader("Path")
                docno = oraReader("Document_No")
                If (System.IO.File.Exists(path1)) Then                    
                    sqlCmd = New SqlCommand("INSERT INTO CHECKLINKS1 (DOCUMENT_NO) VALUES (@doc)", conn)
                    sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@doc", docno)
                End If

I'm currently experiencing a spinloop wait type with command of Unknown Token. The issue occured when I copied DB filed from another server and attempted to attach it -using the SSMS wizard - to the affected DB. The attach failed due to an OS permission error but the database engine - for no clear reason - mounted the DB in a Recovery/Read Only mode; the transaction did not rollback. This rogue DB cannot be altered, dropped, detached, etc and KILL command fails against the culprit SPID. In the DB log there is a stack dump at Location:  "logmgr.cpp":5527, * Expression:  !(minLSN.m_fSeqNo < lfcb->lfcb_fSeqNo). And the errors: Error: 17066, Severity: 16, State: 1; Error: 3624, Severity: 20, State: 1.

How to delay the close() in client

HI,        I'm writing a WCF using wsDualHttpBinding as binding property, in my client side i specified the closeTimeout as 00:00:00, it throws the timout exception, when i closed the channel, using close() in client side code.   However, if i specify the closeTimeout  as 00:00:01, it will finish the close of channel, within 1 second. But for 0.01, 0.1 second it cannot able to close, now i want to specify a 30 second closeTimeout, and in the code behind i want to make the close to take more time to finish closing the channel. How can i make the close() to wait,   any idea,

Endless update loop after return of customDataSet in UpdateHandler

I have created a custom conflict handler for merge replication that responds to Inserts and Updates from both the Publisher and the Subscriber.  This is a prototype so the tables involved are limited. Unfortuntely, I get into an endless loop of updates back and forth. I respond to the Inserts and Updates because the SiteIndex of sites in the tblSites table are different on the two replication databases but their SiteID is the same.  When transferring records from the tblGroups table, I need to look up the SiteIndex and translate it to the right value for the target (Publisher vs. Subscriber).  Here’s the code for the Update:   public override ActionOnDataChange UpdateHandler( SourceIdentifier updateSource, DataSet updatedDataSet, ref DataSet customDataSet, ref int historyLogLevel, ref string historyLogMessage ) { int siteIndex = (int)updatedDataSet.Tables[0].Rows[0]["SiteIndex"]; int translatedSiteIndex = 0; if ( updateSource == SourceIdentifier.SourceIsPublisher ) { translatedSiteIndex = TranslateSiteIndex( PublisherSites, SubscriberSites, siteIndex ); } else if ( updateSource == SourceIdentifier.SourceIsSubscriber ) { translatedSiteIndex = TranslateSiteIndex( SubscriberSites, PublisherSites, siteIndex ); } if ( translatedSiteIndex != 0 ) { customDataSet = updatedDataSet.Copy(); customData

Strange for loop problem

Hi, I have this problem with moving a number of documents stored in a SharePoint Document Libray progamatically.The Document library is called "CR" which stores Change Management word documents.  Within this document library there may or may not be a folder which stores attachments (other documents, pictures etc) associated with the CR Document. When a button is pressed this code should see if the CR document has a corresponding folder, and then iterate through each file in that folder and move it to another archive folder.The code I have is as follows:SPList crlist = CR.Web.Lists["CR"]; for (int i = 0; i < crlist.Folders.Count; i++) { if (crlist.Folders[i].Folder.Name == "CR " + CR["CR Number"]) { for (int ii = 0; ii < crlist.Folders[i].Folder.Files.Count; ii++) { crlist.Folders[i].Folder.Files[ii].MoveTo(folderlist.RootFolder.ServerRelativeUrl + "/" + year.ToString() + "/" + WorkflowItem.Title + "/" + crlist.Folders[i].Folder.Files[ii].Name); } } }CR is list item (codument) which this code is working on at the time.crList is the sharepoint docu
