Setting the Pipename - Converting integer to string to LPCSTR

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

I am trying to create a pipename - \\.\pipe\CC-("PID in hex")... I get a PID once I create the process and it is stored in po.dwProcessID.

 

How do I create the LPCSTR such that it has \\.\pipe\CC-12A2 if 12A2 is the PID in hex.

Cleanest way of setting max string length for text in GridView cells?

  
I want to make sure that each row in the table is the height of one line of text only.  I know you can set RowStyle-Wrap="false", but I also don't want any really wide rows.  I know I can go through each cell on RowDataBound or something and cut it to a particular length and then append an ellipsis on the end, but is there a neater way of doing the same thing?

And within the BLL is where I am trying to convert it before it gets inserted into the database.

converting a rdr object to a string

  

I inherited some code and I need to change a line so that instead of testing to see if the value in a table column is not null, it also tests to see if the value is not empty.

The existing line is:

if (rdr["InnLinkURL"] != null)


"InnLinkURL" is the name of the column being tested.

I thought a solution could be something like:

if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(InnLinkURL) == true)

Not sure how to convert the object to a string, though.

public static string ToString(
 object value
);


If someone could show me the proper syntax I'd be grateful.

As an alternative, I tried this also but it doesn't seem to work (no errors, just doesn't return true)

if ((rdr["InnLinkURL"] != null) && (rdr["InnLinkURL"] != ""));




SQL error: Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

  
I hope someone can advise on the issue I'm having.

This SQL worked beautiful until I added in @startdt and @enddt and this section >> AND [Selldate] BETWEEN ' + @startdt + ' AND ' + @enddt + '

By adding in this condition, I now get the following error:

Msg 241, Level 16, State 1, Line 8
Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

I have tried changed variables to type = date and various iterations of date formatting, casting with no success. The date in the table is clean as a whistle.

(The CONVERT function is being used in setup for a PIVOT SQL which needs  VARCHAR for column headers)

Thanks in advance for your help, 
JR

converting a hex string to an IP address

  

i have no idea which forum to post this to, thought i would start here.  i have exported log files from TMG firewall and brought them into sql2008r2.  i have a view that shows me the logtime, ClientIP, and username fields.  So far so good.  The problem is that the IP address field looks like this:  0A370D16 - which, if adjusted, would be 0a.37.0d.16 = 10.55.13.22.  The field is a string - how can i manipulate the select statement to make it look like an ip address (select blahblah as SourceIP from...)?

 

thanks


Setting Membership/Profile/Role provider's connection string at runtime...?

  

How can I set the connection string for the built-in membership, profile and role providers at runtime?

Since each site in our multi-site application uses a separate API to retrieve its specific connection string (via key, for security purposes), I cannot set the connection string to my providers in the web.config file. I need to be able to set the connection strings programmatically at runtime, but I cannot find how to implement this.

I thought many people must have run into this problem, but I can't seem to find anything regarding this.Can anyone here help me with this problem?

 

Sebastian
