Weird "string;#" in combobox

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Ok, while I am digging and digging myself into the world that's called Sharepoint I come to the next challenge.


I have two lists Projects List and Project Issues. They both have an id field (which is not the ID field of the record) and a title. I created two calculated fields for both of the tables which combines the title and the number for displaying in other pages.



Projects List:

ProjectID: 2008-001

Project Name: First Project in 2008

Display Name (which is the calculated field): 2008-001 First Project in 2008


The calculated field formula is: =[ProjectID]&" "&[Project Name]

The field returns a string.


I also have a Worksheet list where my workers have to fill in their working hours. In this list I have two lookup fields. O

ComboBox Display list does not update if a datasource is a boxed string

I have a combo box databound to a BindingSource bound to a List<Holder> it has Holder.Name as its display value. I also have a text box bound to Holder.Name but if I change the text in the text box it will not change what is displayed in the combo box. Changing selected items and changing back will show the updated text in the text box but will still have the old value displayed in the combo box. How do I make the item in the combo box update? namespace Sandbox_Form { public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); lstBroken = new List<Holder>(); lstBroken.Add(new Holder("test1")); lstBroken.Add(new Holder("test2")); bsBroken = new BindingSource(lstBroken, null); cmbBroken.DataSource = bsBroken; cmbBroken.DisplayMember = "Name"; txtBroken.DataBindings.Add("Text", bsBroken, "Name"); lstWorks = new List<string>(); lstWorks.Add("test3"); lstWorks.Add("test4"); bsWorks = new BindingSource(lstWorks, null); cmbWorks.DataSource = bsWorks; txtWorks.DataBindings.Add("Text", bsWorks, null); } } public class Holder { public Holder(string name) { Name = name; } public string Name { get; set; } } }

Weird Issue with the MOSS Search : FileExtension metadata object type instead of string

Hello, We 've got a strange issue with the search and especially with the FileExtension metadata. when we make a query on the search engine, we receive for the FileExtension metadata an unexcpected result. here is a printscreen showing the issue. http://cid-53eee937847a625e.photos.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Untitled.jpg as you can see the Type of the FileExtension is object and it should be string and I checked the type of the object and it's System.String[] the element at the index 0 contains the value! what's wrong ? thx in advance

Built-in Functions - String Functions

String functions let you extract various portions of character strings, change the case of strings, concatenate and reverse strings and perform many other types of manipulations. All built-in string functions are deterministic with the exception of CHARINDEX and PATINDEX

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Membership Provider Conn String


Hello. I've bee successfully using the Asp.Net Membership Provider in my VB.Net 3.5/SQL 2005 web app for a year now (Site A). However, I've added 2 new sites (B and C) (both with their own DB) and now I see a problem. It looks like users that get created for sites B and C also get created in site A. Roles that I create for B and C only get created in A. I think it is a conn string problem.

When I created A, I adde the conn string to my machine.config (not sure why I did this or if it is even needed)...


         <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=VS689\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=SiteA;USER ID=sa;PASSWORD=123456"/>

Search for a string in my datasource dynamically


I am displaying an Rssfeed on my page by using XmlDataSource and Datalist controls.

I want the user to be able to limit the information that is returned to my datalist.  To do this I have a textbox on the form that allows the user to enter their search criteria.

I need to be able to dynamically create a query string utilizing the information that the user entered in the textbox.  I am also using a drop down list and allowing the user to select whether they want to search in the title, description, or all parts of the xml file.

I am having trouble figuring out how to reference the data contained in my textbox in my query string.  Where the query string says 'asp', I want to replace 'asp' with the content from my sSearch variable.  Can anyone tell me how to reference my variable in the query string???

string sSearch = txtSearch.Text;
        string SQuery = "";

        if (DropDownList2.SelectedIndex == 0)
            SQuery = "[contains(title), 'asp')]";

Problem Cleaning Illegal Characters out of an XML String



I'm trying to strip illegal characters out of an XML string before I send it off to a public web service.  The xml will look something like this:

<field name="first_name">George</field>
<field name="last_name">Harrison</field>
<field name="notes">This is a note.  Any character could appear here</field>

I need to pull out any ampercand (&) charachters in the any of the fields, as well as any < or > characters, which would make the XML unreadable.

I've tried it like this:

Private Shared Function cleanQuery(ByVal queryNode As String) As String 
    Dim root As XElement = XElement.Parse(queryNode) 
    For Each x As XElement In root.Elements 
        x.Value = x.Value.Replace("&", "&").Replace("<", "<").Replace(">", ">") 
    Return root.ToString() 
End Function


That doesn't work so well.  I get the error stating:

     There are multiple root elements. Line 1, position 15.

I tried wrapping the XML in a single root element, like this:

Private Shared Function cleanQuery2(ByVal q

How to send an email with information in query string


First I will say I googled (Binged to make Bill happy) for this but could not find anything, perhaps I am not stating what I need correctly;

I have a website that a customer creates orders (for a printing company) and after the order, I would like to email the customer a link to view the status of their order;

I need to send the CustomerID in the link so on the returning page if a CustomerID is detected in the querystring, I "auto login" the client and open the "Dashboard" for the order page for that customer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to send the link and how to parse the querystring to get the values from the link;

Thank you if you can point me in the right direction.
