WebMatrix conversion failed when converting from a character string to uniqueidentifier?

Count words in the ascx file



I have 163 .resx files. I want to count the words in these files, because my want to translate the sentences (my task is the localisation).

Now I'm opening each file in Ms Visual Studio and I count words manually. How can I count words in all files? And the second question: can I use a program what grab strings from .resx into an editor where I can translate them and save bacn into .resx files? Or must open the files one by one and edit the text fields manually?

Thanks for helping, unfortunately I'm not a programmer.

Problems converting VS 2003 project to VS 2008



I'm having problems converting a VS 2003 project to VS 2008 (tried 2005 as well, same problem). There are several problems;
a) I don't have VS 2003 installed.
b) The project is a web service, however I'm not sure what type of VS project it was created as.
c) The general knowledge about the project setup is..slim.

I get a error message using the conversion wizard, however, I'm not familiar with the tool and I cannot quite find any good information on Google for it, so I am left with a error message I do not understand.

Conversion Issues - myProject.csproj:
Unable to open the Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj'. The Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj' does not exist.

The web service is not intended to run on the dev machine, it is copied to a test or a prod server. However, I do not know how this was done previously. I'm thinking that in order to convert, it has to access the server on which it should run (which is set somehow in a config maybe). But that doesn't actually make any sence..

If anyone could shed light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

Converting from PHP to ASP


Dear all friends

 Hi to you all. I am now looking for not only your help but als your advices and suggestions to my situation.

here is the url of my current running PHP server http://www.yarnxchange.com/index.php

FIrst things I wish to know is which asp controls can replace the current PHP ones to act the same way

1.  In the top of the page the Latest news (News Ticker).

2. Under the banner logo the black line has a streamer that read data from database and view them in sme way like marquee and when roll over it stops and when click i can go to the details page.

3. In the bottom page The Yarn offers section . it shows data from mutiple tables but in the same place when click each item it displays the rows of its table in the right section . I think that there is a way or a data controller that can act the same way I wish your advice.

For sure after that I wish to know your ideas , recommendations and advices to make the full conversion in the best way

C# to VB: Converting to Boolean


I am converting some C# code to VB, the following code is part of a function

if (bool.Parse(v["Parent"].ToString()))
e.Row.CssClass = "Parent";

V is System.Data.DataRowView When I convert this to.

If Boolean.Parse(v("Parent").ToString()) Then
	e.Row.CssClass = "Parent"
End If

The code throws an error "String was not recognized as a valid Boolean" But if I use this code

If CBool(v("Parent").ToString) = True Then
e.Row.CssClass = "Parent"
End If

It works fine, which is great, I am just curious why?

Converting Crystal Report 2005 to 2008 - Please Tell Me I'm Stupid :)


Hello peeps,

  I have a series of Crystal Reports that I can view/edit using Visual Studio 2005 with no issues.  The method I'm using is to simply click on the *.rpt file and it opens in the VS crystal editor with no issues.  The problem I'm having is that we are upgrading to Visual Studio 2008, and when I open the *.rpt file in 2008 it opens as a binary file.  I guess I'm used to everything else in Visual Studio prompting me to convert the older version to the newer version, so I'm not sure what to do in this case.

  Is this normal?  Is there an easy conversion method that I'm simply overlooking?  Am I screwed?  Who invented liquid soap, and why?

Answers to any of these questions would be greatly appreciated...

SharePoint Workflow E-mail Hyperlink has the Spaces Between Two Words Are Removed

I have a very simple Workflow, that includes href link to Infopath form.
If the form name includes spaces, the URL redirects to a The Form has been Closed message, indicating that it cant find that form.
In our scenario, the file name of the document/form in SharePoint when saved is called "Travel Request - <submit date>"  as noted with spaces.
The Hyperlink URL in the email generated by the workflow appears to encode all values in the name after the first two words (after Request).  See below.  after the word Request the spaces are encoded properly.     its replacing the first space with it appears %0d%0a (CR LF)
The URL below is what is displayed when right clicking, and selecting Edit Hyperlink in the email

I can reproduce this in development and production.  Any ideas on how this can be resolved?
