Display Binary PDf in HTML/Text

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am saving user uploaded PDF files in SQL server using varbinary datatype. There is totally no problem in saving in binary and retrieving in PDF. But due to one specific requirement (which i cant change) i to need to fetch binary PDF and display in HTML or atleast get in string form.

Is it possible? If yes how.

Rite now i m opening PDF files like code written below. But it opens a PDF reader in browser. I want to display the data of PDF in plain text instead in PDF reader.

bytedata = (byte[])dsPrograms.Tables[0].Rows[0]["PDFFile"];
                PdfReader pdfReader = new PdfReader(bytedata);
                Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
                PdfStamper pdfStamper = new PdfStamper(pdfReader, Response.OutputStream, '\0', true);
                AcroFields pdfFormFields = pdfStamper.AcroFields;
                AcroFields docFields = pdfStamper.AcroFields;
                pdfStamper.FormFlattening = false;

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

I have created a dropdown control and a text box control in my infopath form. I am binding some values to the dropdown control from a sql database with "value" field as "@ID" and "Display name" as "@Name"

Now, when the user select the dropdown the display name should be auto-populated in the textbox I created, not the "@ID" value.

Hello I hope I am not asking simple one.  SUPPORT SERVICES<     Computing Service    Library or Data Engineering    Civil Engineering    Electrical Engineering  I have the data to display in a DropDownList control shown as above. There is a distinct category Type(example Support Services) and Category Name i.e., Computing Services. I do not want to hard code the values into DropDownList control. I like to get the data from database to display as shown in above Table. Note that Category Type should be displayed in Bold and Category Name in normal Text. Question: In order to achieve the above, 1. How many database Tables and relationships between them  2. Query the data to display in the above format in drop down 3. how should be the code behind i.e, DataTextValue and DataValueField for DropDownList.

Problem importing text files with binary zeros (0x00) via SSIS(SQL2005). It is all fine when using D

Hi.   There is a "text" file generated by mainframe and it has to be uploaded to SQL Server. I've reproduced the situation with smaller sample. Let the file look like following: A17     123.17  first row          BB29    493.19  second             ZZ3     18947.1 third row is longer And in hex format: 00:  41 31 37 20 20 20 20 20 ? 31 32 33 2E 31 37 20 20  A17     123.17  10:  66 69 72 73 74 20 72 6F ? 77 0D 0A 42 42 32 39 20  first row??BB29 20:  20 00 20 34 39 33 2E 31 ? 39 20 20 73 65 63 6F 6E     493.19  secon30:  64 0D 0A 5A 5A 33 20 20 ? 20 20 20 31 38 39 34 37  d??ZZ3     1894740:  2E 31 20 74 68 69 72 64 ? 20 72 6F 77 00 69 73 20  .1 third row is 50:  6C 6F 6E 67 65 72       ?                          longer          I wrote "text" in quotes because sctrictly it is not pure text file - non-text binary zeros (0x00) happen sometimes instead of spaces (0x20).   The table is: CREATE TABLE eng ( src varchar (512) )   When i upload this file into SQL2000 using DTS or Import wizard, the table contains: select src, substring(src,9,8), len(src) from eng <               src                ><substr>             <len> A17     123.17  first row           123.17                  25BB29                                493.19                  22ZZ3     18947.1 third row           18947.1                 35   As one can see, everything was importe

Showing highlighted text (HTML) in calculated field?

Greetings all,   We're porting our 2007 list to 2010. In Sharepoint 2007, we used the following Calculated Column code to display a highlight over items that had different statuses:   =IF(Date="","<DIV style='background-color:#ff6666'>Not <b>Yet</b> Set</DIV>", IF(Finalized=TRUE,"<DIV style='background-color:#66ff66'>Finalized</DIV>", "<DIV style='background-color:#fffa91'>Tentative</DIV>"))   When we use this in Sharepoint 2010, it doesn't seem to apply the DIV structure. Any ideas of how we can change our code to make this work? Thanks! --Dave   No matter -- I need to add a code snipped ( http://marijnsomers.blogspot.com/2010/01/write-html-code-in-sharepoint-via.html ) to the page... thanks!

Rich text field showing html code

I am an end user of Sharepoint. This issue only happens from my computer, not from any other within our organization.

Query Sharepoint list, rich text columns returning HTML tags

Hi! So I have an issue that maybe someone of you have encountered as well. I am querying a Sharepoint list and creating a report from the data collected from this list. This all works fine except that one of the columns in this list is of the type "Multiple lines of text" and also supports "rich text" with different fonts, sizes and so on. This has the effect that the text returned from this column is wrapped in HTML tags that specifies how the text should be formatted. Naturally I do not want this HTML code to appear in my report so for now I have used custom code to do a string.replace and replaced for example <div></div> and <br> with "". However, this column also has url references to documents and these links shows up like this "/servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx">http://servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx There is some sort of double reference to the document that I guess like the HTML tags are embedded in the answer from the rich text column and this is not so easy to do a string replace on because the url varies with the different document and document names. My question really is if anyone of you have done a similar report that I am doing, and have encountered this fenomen with this sharepoint column and how you did to solve this? I have tried to creat
