Textbox - how to intercept special characters ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 

I need to handle keypress Ctrl-1..9 and Alt1..9 when the focus is in a TextBox.

I have tried PreviewKeyDown on both the form and the derived TextBox class, but neither get called in the case of special characters.

I see one solution is to create and attach a routed command per key, but I'm wondering if there is any other way to do this?

Problems Rendering Special Characters

  

Good afternoon ASP programmers,

I am creating an application that creates math problems for students.  I wish to use a special character for negation to differentiate it from the minus sign.  I am using the Unicode character U02c9. 

Negation

This is a composite screen shot of two problems. The top one is rendered in Fire Fox and the bottom one in IE.  I'd like to know how to change my JavaScript so that IE is rendered like Fire Fox.  I have created variables that I use for my special characters.

var symMul= "×";
var symDiv= "÷";
var symNeg= "?";

Both IE & Fire Fox correctly render the symDiv and symMul symbols. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.



 

 

 


DropDownList FindByText with Special Characters...?

  

I have a dropdownlist which I dynamically select a list item using findbytext as long as there are no special characters.  One entry in the list starts with a percent symbol which I have been unable to dyncamically select.  I have confirmed that there are no spaces in the list item and have hard coded the query with the string to try to find the problem.  FindByText("% Increase")    I believe it has something to do with the special character but have been unable to identify a method to work around this.  Any help would be appreciated.

VB

If Not ddlColumns1.Items.FindByText(strDefault) Is Nothing Then 
    ddlColumns1.Items.FindByText(strDefault).Selected =
True
End If


MySqlDataReader - Reading special column characters

  

Hi.

I have a MySQL database, which contains columns with danish characters like ø æ and å.

When the MySqlDataReader tries to read this column name:

for (int i = 0; i < MysqlReader.FieldCount; i++)
{
       string Key = MysqlReader.GetName(i);

}


The result is not the expected character, but some kind of ASCII value of it. For an example, 'å' gets interpreted as 'Ã¥'.

What to do?


Thanks alot for your help :)

How do you specify special characters as flat file delimiters?

  
I have a flat file that has fields delimited by tilde {~} and rows delimited by {CR}{LF}.  The problem is, my source is spitting out the {NULL} (&H00) at the end of the row. The data displays correctly in the pre-viewer (with a non-print symbol at the end of the last field), but gives an error when I try to run the package. Example: "data"~"data"~"data"{NULL}{CR}{LF} I can process the row in c# using: "\0\r\n" as the row delimiter.   What is the equivalent notation for SSIS?   Thanks,

Drag drop functinality not working on Explore View control for file containing special characters in

  
We have created a control which uses explorer view control for file drag and drop. This functinality works fine for a file having filename without special characters but it gives an error if we drag and drop a file having special characters in the file name. The reason for this is Sharepoint uses WebDAV protocol for file transfer to the Sharepoint document library and WebDAV protocol has limitation that it does'nt accept file with special characters. Please let me know the way how I can accomplish drag and drop of file with special characters in file name, onto Explorer View control with WebDAV.

GridView crashes when user enters html open "<" or close ">" characters in a textbox

  
My GridView is bound to a sql data source and allows editing of fields. Coding is in C# and JavaScript. Using Visual Studio 2008 in test mode, if I enter a less-than "<" or greater-than ">" character in a GridView textbox an error is immediately thrown upon pressing enter: "Microsoft Visual StudioMirosoft JScript runtime error:Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: An unknown erroroccurred while processing the request on the server. The status dode returnedfrom the server was: 500"When the < or > is entered in production, the page aborts and loads the application start page. I need to be able to catch and replace those characters BEFORE the error is thrown. I've tried hooking OnTextChange code to the textboxes, but the error is thrown as soon as I press enter...the OnTextChange code never runs. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Limit characters in multiline textbox on formview

  

Hello,

I have this working perfectly on a normal webform without a master page or formview.

Label1 is counting the values in TextBox2 and limiting them to 10.

I need this to work in a formview with a master page but I just can't get it to work. Can someone please advise how I use this with the controls being in a formview or even a detailsview.

Thanks for any help.

    <script>
    function checkLength(con)
{

if(con.value.length >= 10)
{

return false;
}

else

{

document.getElementById('Label1').innerHTML = (9 - con.value.length) + ' Chraracters Remaining';return true;
}

}

function setRemaining()
{

document.getElementById('Label1').innerHTML = (10 - document.getElementById('TextBox2').value.length) + ' Chraracters Remaining';

if (document.getElementById('TextBox2').value.length > 10)
{

document.getElementById('TextBox2').value = document.getElementById('TextBox2').value.substring(0,10);
}

}

</script>

special characters ofr queries

  

Hello everyone

I'm doing some queries with input values coming from textboxes.

So what might happen is that some one might write something like this:

' DROP tbl_users;

or use any characters (such as " ) that can generate MySQL errors leadingo to system breakdown;

What I need is a class that gets the input text and then parses the characters to an escape sequence, so that if an attempt of breaking down the system occurs like the previous the input parameter will appear like:

\'DROP tbl_users;

 

The reason I'm asking for help is because I'm using a method tha executes a query: something like this

        strquery = "CALL sp_insere_hist(" + Id_rec_hist + ", " + Id_serv_hist + ", " + Id_dp + ", " + Dt_entrada_hist + "," + Despacho + ", " + _nfunc.Text + ")";
        m.executasql(strquery);


Appreciate all your insites on the subject

Cheers

Francis
