Is it possible to allow Integer fields to start with zero?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

This seems simple enough, yet problematic.

I have a text-integer field that I need to display values that begin with zero when they are entered as such.  I am able to get the the form template to do so by setting the format to "None (display XML value)" rather than "Number" but when the file is saved to the SharePoint library it displays the value with the zero removed.

How can I force this field to display the value as entered when it starts with a zero?

Map the start and end datetime fields of an historical dimension to the time dimension and the fact



I have a dimension with some historical attributes and I use start and end datetime fields to save the outdated records. I assume that when the cube is processed, each record in the fact tables is mapped to the matching record in the dimension by using the combination of the key attribute with the start and end datetime fields. My question is how to configure the mechanism so that it will know which field is the datetime field and use it to do the comparisons with the start and end fields?

How to cast integer values as an array of enum values?


Hello all!

I'm working with VS2010 Beta2, ASP.NET and Dynamic Data. I'm using VB but will certainly be happy to receive a C# example if necessary. Laughing

I used a few of Steve's examples (Writing Attributes and Extension Methods for Dynamic Data and Dynamic Data - Hiding Columns in selected PageTemplates) to create a custom property attribute to be applied to a dynamic data column and want it to accept an array of enum values (each value will represent a dynamic data page template where this column should not be displayed).  My new attribute works fine when I hardcode it like this, meaning the HideColumnIn attribute is properly populated with the array of enum values:

<HideColumnIn(PageTemplate.List, PageTemplate.Edit)> _
Public Property My_DD_Column As Object


However, I want to store the values to be used for the HideColumnIn in the DB as integer values that correspond to the

Create ID (uniqueid?) from two fields when data is entered


I need to create an ID from two fields when they are entered into the db for the first time.  I thought Uniqueidentifer would do this, but it looks like uniqueidentifier is random and i have no control of the process. 

My user will enter 4 letters into a column called INIT and 4 numbers into a column called NUMB.  What I would like to do is create an id by combining those fields.

How can I do this?

Introducing the issue, Howard Dierking points out that you can't simply parallelize your code blindly if you expect to truly reap the benefits that parallelism promises.
