.Sort a List problem

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


I have a little problem with sorting a List<String>.

I have put 4 elements like this and now are trying sort them correct. My example below shows the problem. I am not sure of how sort the names so they comes in this order: "Folder1, Folder2, Folder10, Foler11"  ?

List<String> GetNames = new List<String>();

GetNames .Add("Folder1");
GetNames .Add("Folder10");
GetNames .Add("Folder2");
GetNames .Add("Folder11");

GetNames.Sort(); //Sort the list

The sort comes in this order now which is wrong:

How to sort the list to have this order: ?

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

Cascade Drop Down List Problem


I have 4 "cascade drop down linked" each other. The first one is "AccesoryFor", the second "TypeOfAccesory", the third "MarkOfAccesory" and the fourth "ModelOfAccesory".

The problem is that sometimes is possible in the web page I'm programming that a "Session Variable" could have a value that must be selected in one of that ddls. But not only that, the "ddl" or the entire "row" where the ddl is located ,must disappear. The problem is that, when the page does the rendering process, the others "cascade drop down" don't find its "control parents", so they stay disable and without data.

So, what I do in the Load Method:

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            Session["AccesoryFor"] = "cellphone";

 public void loadValuesToUI()
    if (Session["consultarRecursos_AccesorioDe"] != null)
            rowAccesoryFor.Visible = false;

As the row where the first DLL is located dissapears, and error occurs saying that "Control-Parents" are not found. There's no way to "Disable" or make dissapear the ddl in the web-service because

Problem with list controls and update progress template



I have an update panel that surrounds a wizard control which I use in conjunction with a update progress control. Now my update progress control works perfectly, with my animated gif and div tag that lays over my wizard control when the user goes from step to step. However, there is a problem that I am struggling to solve. A number of my steps use controls like list boxes, and when the update progress control fires, the list control is not laying underneath my div an animated gif no matter how high a make my css z-index on the div.

Does anyone have a way of solving this?


Problem with SharePoint Designer 2007 and Custom List Forms


I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms.  I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields.  When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.

Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.

I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.

Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

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; } } }

Interactive Sort - problem when toggling

I have created a matrix with a toggle option on one of the rows (when the report is initially run this row is hidden).  This row when toggled produces 10 or more rows with data.  In the column headings I have given the user the option to interactively sort through the data that is stored in this row.  The problem that I am having is that when I choose to sort the data after I have toggled to see the data, the report re-renders and the goes back to the un-toggled view.  So I have to re-toggle to see what my sorted data. I want to be able to view my sorted data without having to toggle back out. I believe the solution lies in Row visibility "show or hide based on expression".  I just don’t know what expression to use... or if the solution is more complex. Help please.

Order list by string value

Hi, I need to order a list of items, by a string value...e.g. 635, 955, 5820, 1010 should appear as 635,955,1010,5820, however it shows up as 1010, 5820, 635, 955 because it's a string and not an integer.I cannot convert to integer, it must eb a string value. Any suggestions as to how this can be done simply using a string value?
