checking stock levels before passing an order for payment

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am building an ecommerce site and I struggle to find a way to check the stock levels for each order. I have created an "in house" procedure that  involves the administrator having to push a "check stock" button for each item on the order but it doesn't look too elegant. I really don't know how this works in a real life scenario.


Any ideas?


Many thanks

How can I use ORDER BY by passing different columns and sort orders?


Hi all

Here is what I am trying to do:

declare @dateBegin as datetime, @dateEnd as datetime
declare @column as varchar(30), @order as varchar(4)
set @dateBegin = null
set @dateEnd  = null
set @column  = 'created'
set @order   = 'DESC'

	(@dateBegin is null or startTime >= @dateBegin) and (@dateEnd is null or endTime <= @dateEnd)

Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?


How to turn off optimistic concurrency checking?


I have run into a problem with optimistic concurrency in my dynamic data application (where all relevant settings are at their default values); when I try to update or delete one of my tables, I see the following error:

 Exception type: ChangeConflictException
 Exception message: Row not found or changed.

I am the only user of my database at the moment, so I can guarantee that the data both exists and has not been changed outside the application!

Various forums have suggested that the way to deal with this is to set the column attributes so that the concurrency checking is disabled; i.e.

[global::System.Data.Linq.Mapping.ColumnAttribute(Storage="_PropSurname", DbType="NVarChar(255)", UpdateCheck=UpdateCheck.Never)]

However, to do this manually through the Visual Studio designer will take me hours (I have a lot of tables) and if I then change the schema of one of the tables in the DB, won't I then have to do it all again?  I've tried editing the .designer.cs file directly but my changes are subsequently overwritten (as expected).

All suggestions gratefully received!

Is it possible with SQL sorted in descending order according to the word?
In Table I shrajeno Mastercard, Visa, Diners etc ...

All Visa are the first in the order, another Mastercard, etc. ...

Something does not work: ORDER BY PaymentType = 'Visa';

I would not want to work in one field PaymentId (111,222,33, etc. ..) and then use the ORDER BY.

Is this possible in such a way?

Linq qry with order by basic questions


I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.

I try to convert this sql statement to its linq counterpart :

SELECT COUNT(tb_Mailer_Smses.Id) AS [cnt], tb_Mailer_mailing.Id As [Id]
,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1
GROUP BY tb_Mailer_mailing.Id

Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?

Passing Data to a Cell in Excel



I have a webpage that is created in Visual Studio 2008 and programmed in C#.

I have a web form that prompts the user to enter a value into a text box.  For now, I do not have any validation on that field (I will be adding that later).

I need to pass the value that the user has entered to cell C1 of the excel spreadsheet (user_info.xls).

I understand that using excel is not ideal, but unforutnately need to try to make this work with the excel spreadsheet.

I do not have any code for this yet, because I honestly do not know how to begin.

The action of poulating the excel spreadsheet will be intialized from the On Click event of a Submit button.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,


Passing HTML values from asp.net to asp


 We have a part of our website which is coded in classic asp. This takes the values of a login page (asp.net)  which uses 

<input type="text" /> to hold the values and then submit them to the asp page using the following line of code -

<input type="submit" value="Login" onClick="this.form.action='<%= SubmitURL() %>/login/login_user.asp?Type=Login&amp;this.form.encoding='application/x-www-form-urlencoded'; this.form.submit();" />

The asp page then retrieves the values using the code -

Value1 = Request.Form("Val1")

We now have a requirement to pre-populate the login values to provide an automated login process but don't want to change the older asp code. When we try to assign values to the input text in the asp.net page by assigning the value runat="server" the login fails as it does not seem to carry over when the page is submitted.

Is there a way where we can pre-populate the html textbox without making it unavailable to the asp page?
