Putting a text box in typeover mode.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

  I am using VB ASP.NET in Visual Studio 2008.  I would like to put some textboxes in typeover mode so that the user will not have to erase what is there before typing in the new text.

  Is there a way to do this?  If so, please direct me to the code examples or give me the code that can do this.

  Thank you for your time.

How to put a TreeNode into Edit mode and make the text unselected

I have a c# app in which I would like to allow the user to enter new nodes in a TreeView control without having to use the mouse. I am able to intercept keystrokes in OnKeyDown, and the following code is working successfully: TreeNode newNode = new TreeNode( e.KeyData.ToString() ); Nodes.Add(newNode); LabelEdit = true; newNode.BeginEdit(); The problem is that the first letter in the node being edited is selected, which causes the following keystroke to replace the selected character.  Typing "HELLO" results in "ELLO", unless the user first presses the right-arrow key to deselect the selected first character. I tried setting e.Node.IsSelected = false in OnBeforeLabelEdit, but cannot because the IsSelected property is read-only. How can I programatically deselect the first character and position the edit cursor after the first character?

Applying changes to a text box within a form (edit mode)



I'm using the free text editor (http://freetextbox.com) and set a property (DesignModeCSS) to the text box based on the theme being used at the time. The following code works just fine:

TextBox_Home.DesignModeCss = "App_Themes/" + GetCurrentTheme() + "/BackOfficeTextStyles.css"; 

What I've since done is to add the text box control into a FormView (edit mode), and I'm now not sure how to access the text control to apply the code above.

Any help is much appreciated.


Edit as Text mode


We have a company who is hosting and managing a SQL Server Report Builder Server 3.0. There are times we have to choose the button Edit As Text so we can place an OR statement in the code instead of using an AND statement on the filters, and possibly other minor changes. (Thats the only way I know of doing this). After we deselect the Edit As Text button we get an error "Switching to Visual Designer will discard your manual changes." Is this a problem with Microsoft report builder by design or is it something our provider may have setup improperly.  This has made it difficult if we start to write the query and want to test results and then later decide we did something wrong and needed to add another field or make a change. Once we have Edited in text mode it seems we are stuck and if we don't know SQL that well we are in trouble. Any ideas of what our provider needs to do to fix? If it is a MS limitation, is there a work around that will allow us to bring over our work that was changed in the Edit Text mode back to where we can continue working in design mode?

AutoCompleteStringCollection for text box in DataGridView 2.0

I have been searching for a way to have autocomplete in a DataGridTextBox
object. There does not appear to be an obvious way to do this like you would
for a TextBox outside of a grid using the AutoCompleteCustomSource. Any
thoughts on how I can add this collection? :)

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

Hi, I'm searching now for hours but couldn't find it.Cry

In my menu i have several buttons which (by a <a href..) should go the a part of an article that is in the same form.

Menu button : What is a database should go to the page default.aspx and in there is an article published.
A part of this article is having a piece of text about "what is a database"

Menu button: how to make a query should go to this same article in the same page but then to the part that is have the piece about the query. The next could be an example of what i'm doing:

    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a database</a></li>
    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a query</a></li>

Where my question marks are, there should be a connection to that particular piece of text.
In each article part there is an ID="text1" and the second part id="text2"

How shoudl i do that, Should i use a question mark.
Please give me some guidance how to structure the <li> statement or a pointer where I can read about it.


text editor


 I format lines in a .aspx file (source view) the way I can use them, and if I switch to design view or view in browser or debug, the many lines get reformatted to flow all onto one line.

I can't seem to find the correct setting to keep this from happening.

Any suggestions?


Unique text value in databse column


Hi Everyone!

I know this is probably a very basic question but how do I keep a column's text values unique in SQL server (ie for a unique username)?  The column is not an integer it's varchar(50), and it's not the primary key but I could make it the primary key if recommended.

The front end could handle it;  where the user would enter text, it's validated, then a query is done to see if that username is available.  If so, then user can decide to choose it and an insert is done, if not they pick a new username and process repeats.  With this approach, the responsibility of keeping the value unique solely rests on the front end, nothing on the database side.

Is this the correct way to handle this? 

Thank you!
