Unable to enter the product key in the Convert License Type page (textbox is read-only)

We installed both WSS and MOSS SP2 and had planned to follow the manual fix for the known issue that the patch unexpectedly activates a trial expiration.  However, the textbox to enter the product key is read-only.  We have tried accessing this page using the normal administrator credentials as well as the farm account; no success.The SP2 issue and manual fix is detailed here, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/971620We were able to experience this problem on a farm running the Feb 2007 cummulative patch (version so it's not related to the SP.  But running the SP increasing the need to find the fix.Any help is appreciated,J.

Conversion from type 'TextBox' to type 'String' is not valid

I have a FormView that allows a user to register for a company event. I want to do a couple of things with this form. 1. I need to write this data to a MS SQL database 2. I need to send an email confirmation of their registration to their email. I know how to do both of these things, but i am having trouble doing both at the same time. It would be nice if I could do it in one click, but I coded it into two pages to try to help simplify it. The first page allows the user to input their information into a formview and when they click the submit button, it places those answers into session variables:Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Session("FirstName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("FirstName") Session("LastName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("LastName")  <li> <label> First Name</label> <asp:TextBox ID="FirstName" runat="server" class="text-box" Text='<%# Bind("FirstName") %>' /> </li> </ul> </div>

Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc.,

Hello, I have a method that is passed in a FrameworkElement Ctrl.  When I use Ctrl.GetType().ToString() I get "System.Window.Controls.TextBox" or another string if a different type of control is passed in.  All I am interested in is the text after the last dot/period.  In my searching I thought I came across something that just returned the portion I'm looking for, but now can't find it. Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc., without its parents? Regards, Robert

In Textbox, type in one letter and show words starting with that letter


Hi everyone,

I think this is a little tricky problem, but I need to solve it somehow. 

I have a texbox in my asp.net page.

I want to show all names when a user types in a letter in that textbox, whatever names starting with that letter.

the names are from a list generated by other function, pulled out from active directory.

So for example:

User types in "a" in a textbox then automactically names "aron" "asron" "amanda" in the list shows, and user can select one of those names.

How can I do this?

Thank you for advance :)


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.

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Highlighting Rows with TextBox OnFocus

In another article I explained that how you can make the rows of the GridView control clickable and highlight them when they are clicked. In this article I will explain that how you can highlight the GridView rows when you focus on the TextBox which is contained inside the GridView control.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key

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
