Localizing implicit type validation messages

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm having trouble with the implicit type validation for model properties. The validation/error messages (for numeric fields explicitly) are printed in English (I want them to be printed in Swedish). Does anyone know how to override those messages? Or can I turn of implicit type validation?

The error message I'd like to translate/localize is "The field {0} must be a number."

Implicit-type lambda expression: is it possible?

Hi all, i was plaing around with LINQ and lambda expressions. I was trying to find duplicated files in my system. After a while a realized that duplicated could mean: - same name - same size and extension - ....   So i wrote this code: DirectoryInfo rootDirectory = ....; var groupFiles = selector => rootDirectory.EnumerateFiles("*", SearchOption.AllDirectories).GroupBy(selector).Select(g => new { g.Key, Info = g, Count = g.Count() }).Where(g => g.Count > 1); var groupsByName = groupFiles(f => f.Name); var groupsBySize = groupFiles(f => new { f.Length, f.Extension}); But i get the following error: Error 1 Cannot assign lambda expression to an implicitly-typed local variable So i tryed to make the type explicit and i realized that is not so easy. So what i'm missing?! IMPORTANT. 'm not tying to have the code working. I can solve the issue by duplicating code (even if i hate to do that) I'm rtying to improve my skills with LINQ and Lambda Expressions. Thanks all!!  

SSIS User Defined Data Type (Alias Data Types) and OLE DB Command validation

Hello everyone, I've been having an issue with trying to run my SSIS package on a server, and it seems to be failing on the OLE DB Command step.  What we have in our SQL 2005 DB, is a User-Defined Data Type (base type char(7)) and the OLE DB Command is supposed to call a proc that passes in a value of this data type. ie:  CREATE PROCEDURE myProcedure ( @passedInFromSSIS MY_DATATYPE ) AS .... In my SSIS package, I have the type defined as DT_STR with a length of 7.  Now, when I run the package locally (via Visual Studio), the process runs with success.  However, once the package is deployed on a server and run from an application (note: it is run under a different user), the process fails on a validation step with a "Invalid Parameter Number" error. Now, if I change the input parameter in my proc to the base type of the user-defined data type, the process works again. Has anybody run into a similar issue or know what may be causing this issue?  I first suspected perhaps I needed to grant permissions on the user-defined data type (since I was able to run it under my security context, but not under the application's), however noticed that there isn't security tied to the types.  Any other thoughts?  Please let me know if you need further explanation.  Thanks!

how to set up different validation summary for different type of validators


Hi guys,

what i want to do is to  set up different validation summary for different type of validators. for example, for required field validators, if user leaves some required field blank, it shows that "You have to fill in mandantory information, indicated with a star"

and if some format is wrong, it shows that "format is invalid"

right now, i set all requied field validators' text to be a star, and leave error message to be blank. so that the validation summart will only display the header message. that is what i need. what i dont know is how to separate regular expression into another summary.

i think the validation group property requires multiple buttons. however, i only want one submit button, and this is where i got stuck.


any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance.


Implicit conversion from data type sql_variant to varbinary is not allowed


Here are my codes:

string strToday = DateTime.Today.ToShortDateString();
string strTime = DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();
DateTime dtmDate = Convert.ToDateTime(strToday + " " + strTime);

e.Values["insertDate"] = dtmDate;
e.Values["modDate"] = dtmDate;

And here's the error I got:

Implicit conversion from data type sql_variant to varbinary is not allowed. Use the CONVERT function to run this query.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Implementing localization(Multilingual) for Validation Messages



We are using the OOB validation options in infopath, and would like to implement localization for the error messages displayed. We are using resource files to provide multilingual functionality for all the controls such as labels...etc, but are not able to use the same for Validation Messages.

Could someone provide us an option for implementing Multilingual for Validation Messages in Infopath 2010.


Validation on data type



I am trying to realize valition on datatype. I have used DataAnnotations, but for data type it's not showing customized message

 for example when I' am trying enter string data into int typed field. How I can customize messages in this case?

Declaration of validation.

public partial class GPS_Mark { } 

public class MarkValidation { 
 [DataType(DataType.Currency, ErrorMessage = "This field should be numeric")] 
 public int MarkE{ get; set; }

It's my view

<div class="editor-label">
 <div class="editor-field">
   @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.MarkE)

When user would enter into this field somethihg like: adsf

He would see: "The field MarkE must be a number", not my "This field should be numeric". The mean the same but I need show costumized



[Range(-15, 15, ErrorMessage = "Enter digit")] 

also not helped


Strange behavior when validation type of rule is applied in Infopath


I've designed InfoPath 2010 form which is browser enabled and 2007 compatible.

In one numeric text box, a Validation rule is written such that if user enters anything outside 0-100 range, it'll display an error message.


1. User opens the form and starts filling the controls.

2. User enters a number in this numeric text box and comes out of the textbox.

3. When focus is lost, validation rule gets triggered.

4. Infopath screen flickers (kind of), reposition itself to the original state.

Question 1: Why does it happen like this? This behavior does not happen in case of "Formatting" type of rule, but happens in "Validation" type of rule.

Question 2: Is validation rule a server-side? What about Formatting rule?

Question 3: This is not related to validation rule. When a textbox value is made right-aligned, we do not see the cursor inside textbox while entering the value. Is it the normal behavior? Is there any way to get rid of this?


TreeSelector : playing with generics and type inference

create a generic way to define a selection starting from a tree of objects, the most simpler way as possible.

Let's start with the beginning...
Here is a very simple little interface defining a node of the tree, basically, a value and the references to the child nodes.

UnTyped DataSets and Strongly Type DataSets

We all are use datasets as a means of carrier of data from one layer to another. Most of the time we are using weakly typed datasets. In this article I will explain the differences between weakly typed datasets and strongly type datasets

Localizing Windows Forms

The Visual Studio project system provides considerable support for localizing Windows Forms applications. There are two ways to generate resource files using the Visual Studio development environment: one is to have the project system generate the resource files for localizable UI elements such as text and images on the form. The resource files are then built into satellite assemblies. The second way is to add a resource file template and then edit the template with the XML Designer. A reason for doing the latter is to make localizable strings that appear in dialog boxes and error messages. You must then write code to access these resources.

This walkthrough topic demonstrates both processes in a single Windows Application project.

You can also convert a text file to a resource file; for more information, see Resources in Text File Format and Resource File Generator (Resgen.exe).


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.

Public Sub CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs) Handles CustomValidator1.ServerValidate

' Get file name

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

        Dim UploadFileName As String = uploadAvatar.PostedFile.FileName

        If UploadFileName = "" Then
            ' There is no file selected
            args.IsValid = False
            Dim Extension As String = UploadFileName.Substring(UploadFileName.L

Localizing RequiredAttribute ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1



Has anyone got the Localization working for the RequiredAttribute? 

The below DisplayAttribute is localized properly but the RequiredAttribute is not. Any ideas?

[Display(Name = "UserName", ResourceType = typeof(Account))]
public string UserName { getset; }

VS 2010 HTML validation "in CSS" option - where the hell is it?


In VS 2008 there is a very useful feature of background HTML validation - it checks if CSS class name is valid i.e. it exists in one of the linked css files. But VS 2010 Express does not do that any more. And the relevant setting in Options->Text Editor->HTML->Validation->in CSS is not there. Ok, maybe they made it paid for option? VS 2010 Professional? Not there. Or maybe VS 2010 Ultimate? Not a trace.

1. am I blind?

2. they decided it is too convenient to use and removed it?

3. they will "introduce" it in SP1?

What is going on? That one thing made me move back to VS 2008 web developer.


Type or namespace error.


A couple of days ago I started getting an unusual behavior when compiling Website projects. I have referenced class libraries added to my bin folder that are also correctely referenced in using statements in my aspx.cs code behind. When I compile, I get the 

Error 4 The type or namespace name 'CommonClassLibrary' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\Dev\Fiscal_Portal\Implementation\FMS Portal Site_new\App_Code\BLL\DataTables.cs 1 7 C:\...\FMS Portal Site_new\

error message that would typically be received when the dll has not been added as a reference or added in a using statement.

I can eliminate the error by adding an


Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext


Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.
