hi all,

I have CLR function written in following code,

ASP.NET XML Writer Encoding Problem


Hi everybody,

I'm working on an ASP.NET application which writes xml sitemap to xml file. while I'm generating the loc element, I found that the writer converts the "&" in dynamic URLs to "&amp;" which I think it's not acceptable by Google. is there any way to get out of this?

Part of my code is as follow:

                writer.WriteString("/english/pages/pages.aspx?sid=" + drSections("SectionID").ToString + "&pageid=" + drPages("PageID").ToString + "")

and my output comes like :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

Problem with passing an Image as binary through web service



I have a web service that is accessed by a windows forms application and receives updates like facility name, address, image etc. Everything works fine except the image data is not being passed to the windows app. I am saving the images in database on both sides, so when I pull it from the server I use the following code

if (!reader.IsDBNull(floorPlanOrdinal))

facility.FloorPlan = (byte[])reader["FloorPlan"];

I can see the facility.FloorPlan Dimentions as 103840 when I debug this method which means that the data is pulled from the database fine.

On the forms side though the dimentions become 0, all other values pass fine except this. Here is the facility property in the web service on server side.

Problem importing text files with binary zeros (0x00) via SSIS(SQL2005). It is all fine when using D

Hi.   There is a "text" file generated by mainframe and it has to be uploaded to SQL Server. I've reproduced the situation with smaller sample. Let the file look like following: A17     123.17  first row          BB29    493.19  second             ZZ3     18947.1 third row is longer And in hex format: 00:  41 31 37 20 20 20 20 20 ? 31 32 33 2E 31 37 20 20  A17     123.17  10:  66 69 72 73 74 20 72 6F ? 77 0D 0A 42 42 32 39 20  first row??BB29 20:  20 00 20 34 39 33 2E 31 ? 39 20 20 73 65 63 6F 6E     493.19  secon30:  64 0D 0A 5A 5A 33 20 20 ? 20 20 20 31 38 39 34 37  d??ZZ3     1894740:  2E 31 20 74 68 69 72 64 ? 20 72 6F 77 00 69 73 20  .1 third row is 50:  6C 6F 6E 67 65 72       ?                          longer          I wrote "text" in quotes because sctrictly it is not pure text file - non-text binary zeros (0x00) happen sometimes instead of spaces (0x20).   The table is: CREATE TABLE eng ( src varchar (512) )   When i upload this file into SQL2000 using DTS or Import wizard, the table contains: select src, substring(src,9,8), len(src) from eng <               src                ><substr>             <len> A17     123.17  first row           123.17                  25BB29                                493.19                  22ZZ3     18947.1 third row           18947.1                 35   As one can see, everything was importe

Soap cs code from WSDL encoding response problem


I have created a client proxy from a WSDL file with WSDL.exe

i can both send and recieve data fine.

The xmlfile i recieve contains Nordic char data (i see that in fiddler).

ex: <mydata>øæå</mydata>

The problem occurs when the data goes into my client proxy. It looks like they are in utf-8 format (and that will not work with nordic chars).

so the nordic chars are just scrambled.

any way to override this ?

 return (string)(response[0]);




Problem when doing a binary serialization from COM



I am trying to serialize an object using binary and I'm running into an error "Unable to load assembly". I tried creating a new SerializationBinder which loads the correct assembly however it returns an error "The object with ID 7 was referenced in a fixup but does not exist" (I also received the same error but with ID 6).

My code runs in the following way:

A COM visible dll is launched from a VB6 application. This DLL has a reference to a .NET dll which contains the data objects and performs the serialization.

However, If add a new Windows Forms application to the solution, and call the same methods using the same data objects deserialization works without any issues, and no need to reset the binding.

Thank you

Problem to group radio button across gridview rows

In general no one can easily group or make a single selection from radio button list inside gridview rows. There are a lot of way to make a single or unique selection from list. Here i want to share how i can address this problem in the most easiest way. Googling the problem most of the cases i saw the grouping in horizontal way. Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:

ASP.Net Caching problem ??


I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user. 

This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible?

Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

RaiseEvent problem


I have a parent page ProdView.aspx and two static UserControls, UC1 and UC2. Each UC is in an Ajax accordion pane and the accordion inside an updatepanel.

UC1 has a Gridview footer with couple of textboxes and a link button that fires an Add Row insert procedure. I want to Raise an event that will rebind the UC2 after the row insert in UC1.

First I created the sub delegate and event in UC1:

  • Public Delegate Sub MyRefresh(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
  • Public Event Refresh_UC1 As MyRefresh

In the same UC1 the Insert procedure that fires the insert and RaiseEvent:

Sub PricingGrid_Insert(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
       Dim myConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("LocalSqlServer").ConnectionString)
       Dim myCom As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("AddRow", myConn)
       myCom.CommandText = "AddRow"
       myCom.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure


Gridview Enable Selection Problem



I have a gridview with Enable selection and Enable Paging equals to TRUE.

I also set the PageSize of my gridview to 4 so that I only displays 4 rows per page.

The problem is when I click the pager in the bottom of my gridview, my gridview is disappearing and no records appear.

Here is code behind of my gridview:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                e.Row.Attributes("style") = "cursor:pointer"

                e.Row.Cells(2).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(3).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(4).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(5).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(6).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
