How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Add an empty line in Gridview on specific dayofweek


Hey all,

Havin quite a bit of trouble with this one.  I have a bunch of days that I worked in my database...mostly monday-friday and some saturdays.  What I want the gridview to do is add an empty line between each sunday and monday so that it seperates out my work weeks and makes it easier to read in the gridview.  I got some help here a few days ago on how to clone the db etc and I have all that working properly but I can't seem to wrap my head around how to do add these empty lines in the proper spots.  Here is my code so far:

private DataTable AddEmptyRow()
        DataTable originalDataTable = GetItems();
        DataTable newDataTable = originalDataTable.Clone();
        DateTime testdate = Convert.ToDateTime("7/20/2010");

            for (int i = 0; i < originalDataTable.Rows.Count; i++)
                DayOfWeek day = testdate.DayOfWeek;

                if (day == DayOfWeek.Sunday)
                    DataRow newDataRow = newDataTable.NewRow();



Empty Website Data Source windown


Hi all,

I am Visual Web Developer user and facing a problem when I am creating a local report (.rdlc) file.

I am using Business objects as the Data Source for this report. It was working perfectly until all the items in the Website Data Source window suddenly "disappeared". The "Add New Data Source" button on this window is also disabled. Now the window is just like a blank box only. And I can't continue working with the report file like this...

I have tried undoing what I did before but it does not help at all...

Any reason for this to happen? There is no sign or something at least indicating what is wrong.

Please help.

Dropdown menu - Null or empty string??


I have drop dowm menu as follow.

<asp:ListItem Value="">none</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="STO">Stock</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="ORD">Order</asp:ListItem>

If I chose none, it stores data as "Null"

If I Query the data as below, I don't get the data has value of "Null"

SELECT tabale From type Where type <> STO or type <> ORD

I get data that has empty string but not Null.

Here is my question.

1, How do I write dropdown menu value in oder to get empty string instead of Null?
I did <asp:ListItem Value="">none</asp:ListItem> but this stores Null.

2, Why this Query won't pick up Null?
SELECT mytabale FROM type WHERE type <> STO or type <> ORD

Thank you for your help.

dropdownlist bound to sqldatasource adds items instead of replacing on change



I have a series of dropdownlists on webform in ASP 4.0. The first drop down is filled upon load, and then when a user selects a value from that list, it populates the second dropdown. To accomplish this, I have a SQLdatasource with a parametersource of the first drop-down list control. This works great, except when a user changes their selection from the first drop down. It performs the query, but then adds the list of items to the ones that were already there from the previous selection, instead of replacing it with the new data. Here is the code:

 <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMajor" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="majortext" 
      DataValueField="majorkey" AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
         <asp:ListItem Value="0">Select Major</asp:ListItem>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlReq" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataTextField="req" DataValueField="admreqkey" 
            AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
                <asp:ListItem Value="0">Sel

VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string


Anyone have any experience with this?

We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.


Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.


Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?






Get Dates from Sunday thru Saturday


I'm using the date picker and I need to know how (or if it's even possible), to select a date, and based on the date, have the actual query use the week the date was in and return all the records from that week (Sunday through Saturday)

Like - if I pick 8/24/2010 - it returns a date range of 8/22 through 8/28
I'd also like to display the date range in the report, somehow

Any ideas on how I do this?

Values in user control fields empty when AutoEventWireup=true ?

As a BizTalk developer I'm trying to build a ASP.NET website so some obvious things might be new to me (so please be gentle). I have a web form and I have a user control on it. This user control contains a panel with some user properties that are to be stored in a database. So far nothing fancy. The user control itself contains a panel and is working fine (all code to retrieve and store the values is working). I used the default settings of creating a user control and one of them was AutoEventWireup=true. This works fine because I also have some dropdown boxes (and other fields) that need to be filled with values from the database and that happens in the Page_load event. The panel specifies the 'DefaultButton' which calls a method when clicked to save the values after the user has changed them. On this click the code of the method is called, I confirmed that, but I found out that the values of my controls on the user control (for example the Textbox control) are empty. As a non-ASP.NET developer I couldn't figure out why. So I changed some settings like AutoEventWireup to false. Off course this resulted in my dropdown boxes no longer to be initially filled, but my surprise was big to find out my controls actually contained the values the user typed in. Logically I need both the values and th
