How is TransactionInformation.LocalIdentifier generated?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework


How is the TransactionInformation.LocalIdentifier is generated? When you look at the id it seems that it is a guid + init. ? If I want to see if 2 transactions are same which part of the ID i should check?

e.g. if I get 66fee110-2cb4-47bd-8432-673b7824b734:2 and 66fee110-2cb4-47bd-8432-673b7824b734:3, are these 2 same transaction or 2 different transactions?

Charset Problem with dynamically generated Word Document


in my asp.net web application i am dynamically generating a word documnet out of a sql data. I have set the char set UTF-8 during the doument creation in code but still when i open the generated document and check it char set .. it is always windows-1252 not the one that i have set. My sql data in the document have special characters whihc can only be understandable using the UTF-8 charset otherwise its always ?T written in place of an apostrophy . Pasting my code here..

         HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/msword";
         HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding = System.Text.UnicodeEncoding.UTF8;

Generated controls - skipping focus event - C# + JS


Ok, here is my senario.

A random (6-15) amount of textboxes are generated. Each textbox represents only one character. From those textboxes, three of them (at a random position) are enabled and the rest disabled.


When I put a character in any enabled textbox, it must put the focus on the next enabled textbox.


Textbox IDs go from 'char0' to 'char15' OR 'char0' to 'char12' OR ...

All the textboxes are generated so I can't set up specific focus events for each textbox because the designated control is unknown at design time.

Here is my attempt:


<script type="text/javascript">
    function abc(nextfocus)


for (int i = 0; i < focusableControls.Length-1; i++)
focusableControls[i].ClientSideEvents.KeyDown = "abc(" + focusableControls[i + 1].ID + ")";


focusableControls is an array with all the textboxes in that can get focus. It is also in the right order.

Things I want to find out:

How will I send the textbox out of focus

Errors when interacting with WorkFlow generated tasks through ISA Server


I have a MOSs environment that I have published through ISA Server 2006 and i am getting really strange behavior whentrying to interact with WorkLFow generated tasks when I have connected through ISA. This also seems to affect InfoPath Forms Services. I was wondering if anyone out there is seeing any problems when using ISA Server to interact wih Forms or WorkFlows?


The error I get simply states:

the form cannot be submitted to the web server either because your computer is offline or because the host server is currently unavailable.


Any help would be appreciated.





Selecting the correct auto-generated ID associated with a given customer

I have the following two tables (among many) in an OLTP database: TABLE NAME: BusinessEntity TABLE FIELDS: BusinessEntityID, int, IDENTITY(1,1), NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY BusinessEntityType, nvarchar(10), NULL TABLE NAME: Person TABLE FIELDS: BusinessEntityID, int, NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY to BusinessEntity.BusinessEntityID FirstName, nvarchar(30), NULL LastName, nvarchar(30), NULL There is a 1-to-1 Identifying Relationship between the BusinessEntity and Person tables. When a new customer needs to be added to the database, I execute the following T-SQL statement: INSERT INTO BusinessEntity (BusinessEntityType) VALUES (‘Customer’); What I don’t know how to do is retrieve the value of BusinessEntity.BusinessEntityID that was automatically assigned to the new customer so I can then append it to Person.BusinessEntityID. While I know I can execute: SELECT MAX (BusinessEntityID) FROM BusinessEntity; there is no guarantee that the BusinessEntityID will be the one associated with the new customer I just added because it is possible that other new customers can be added to the BusinessEntity table by other users during the interim period between the time I execute the previously mentioned INSERT command and then SELECT command. Any help/guidance in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

SQL Agent Jobstep output file contains automatically generated header

Hi,   I've created a stored procedure that creates a script to create a number of objects within the database (based on what existing objects are in the database).  From Management Studio, this works fine, and the output is exactly as I want it.   I'm now trying to create a job that will execute this stored procedure, and deposit the results into a file somewhere on the server.  When the job runs, the script is created in the correct place and is essentially ok.   However, there are a couple of questions I'd like to ask.   Why does SQL Server Agent put a header at the top of the output file?  I was hoping to be able to use that output file 'as is' and execute it automatically to recreate my objects when required.  (Obviously, I can manually remove the header, but this is an inconvenience in this situation).  How do I stop it?   Also, when executed from SSMS, the output is correctly line-spaced.  But, the output from the scheduled job adds an extra line between each line of text, which is, again, inconvenient.  Why does it do this, and how can I prevent this (again, without manually editting the output)?   Any thoughts and help greatly appreciated.   Cheers Simon

Encryptipn Decryption from a Java generated key

I have a Triple DES Key generated by java code from a third party vendor. It is a 3 part key. We need to use this key in our VB.NET application.  When I try to combine this key and use it in my app 'Dim desTransform As ICryptoTransform = desCrypto.CreateEncryptor(EncryptKey(Key), EncryptIV(IV))' gives me an error ' Specified key is not a valid size for this algorithm) I am new to cryptography and do not understand the algorithms well. How can I use the java generated key in our app for encrypt/decrypt.   Any help will be appreciated.  

Programmatically Generated Reports (RDLC) ASP.NET C#

Good Day,   I been looking for a day now and I couldn't find a good source of information. I have a one of a kind report wherein the RDLC file including all controls are programmatically generated (system generated)  by one of my asp.net page. All fields and its values to be displayed on the RDLC file are coming a stored procedure. On my stored procedure I'm using a temp table for example #MyTable and its columns can adjust programmatically/automatically base on date range. BTW I'm using C# code to generate the RDLC file and preview it on the report viewer of a page. Sample: Date Range: 01/01/2008  to 12/31/2009  My temp table may look like below AssetCode, Description, Class,  Jan2008, Feb2008, Mar2008 --> until column reach Dec2009 AAAA00001, AAAAAAA,FF, 0.00, 0.00,1,00.00 --> some month#### column may not or may contain value base on my formula. AAAA00002, BBBBBBB,FF, 0.00, 1.00,1,00.00 --> some month#### column may not or may contain value base on my formula. AAAA00003, CCCCCCC,CE, 1.00, 1.00,1,00.00 --> some month#### column may not or may contain value base on my formula. I have no problem in retrieving all data on SQL Server using temp table and showing it on a system generated rdlc file even if I'm using

UserControl content generated from XML?

I am trying to generate items in wrappanel defined in XML. I am missing something here. I got to the point where I can generate content from xml but it is duplicated. With the code below, I am getting 3 stackpanels with the same content. How to pass the the other two Person nodes from XML? Thank you in advance.

Stack Dump generated on the db and SQL tipped over DBCC CHECKDB came out clean

We have Profile db for sharepoint 2010 and the SQL tipped over just before which it generated the below dump. The DBCC CHECKDB on the database came out clean. The SQL Server is SQL 2008 SP1 CU5 and the memory on the server is 32GB with max. for SQL Server being 26 GB.  What could have caused this?

Update with unique random generated values.

Hi there, I have an issue with an update of a column with unique random generated values, using SQL 2005. What I want to achieve is to create unique username for a list of let's say 1000 rows. My approach, which may be wrong, is as follows: to create a view to retrieve a random generated number of 7 digits; to use a function that retrieves the number from the view and checks if it is unique in the table or not (if it is, the number is returned, if it is not, a new one will be generated and so on); to update the table using that random generated number. The problem is that it does not work. It does not generate unique numbers, not all the times (you have to test by running the code few times). I suspect it is something with the update, but not sure how to solve it. Here are the steps to reproduce the problem. Create the table: CREATE TABLE [dbo].[TB_Temp]( [ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL, [ADM_USERNAME] [nvarchar](7) COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AS NULL, ) ON [PRIMARY] Add some test rows: DECLARE @i INT SET @i = 0 WHILE @i <= 1000 BEGIN INSERT INTO TB_TEMP (ADM_USERNAME) VALUES ('') SET @i = @i +1 END Create the view to random generate 7 digits numbers: CREATE VIEW vw_RandNumberForAdminUserName AS SELECT ROUND((9999999 - 1000000 - 1) * RAND() + 1000000, 0) AS RandNumber Create the function to retrieve the unique 7 digits number: CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[fn

Cannot retrieve values of dynamically generated controls

Hi All, I am creating a user control which contains checkboxes and labels that needs to be created on fly. The dynamic generation of these controls depend on the values retreived from a SPlist. I have several panels that display items queried from the list on the basis of a selection criteria. On a button click event I need to capture all the selected values from the controls that were generated dynamically.  When I traverse each dynamic control that I added to the panel, I dont see their values. I tried using recursive retrieval of the control from the page as well but it just behaves crazy, it treats a radio button as a checkbox and returns a value that I am not looking for. I am not using the the page_load() or any other event, I use the button handler on my custom method. I was thinking for ViewState, ControlsState or SessionState. I assume ViewState may not work on this as the dynamically generated controls need to be in the page_load event. Please guide as this getting way more complicated than what I had ever thought of it to be.

Generated WSDL - Remove prefix

SQL generated by LINQ for logging

Hi all. Plz help.I have this query and its result implements IEnumerable. RoutesEntities routesModel = new RoutesEntities(); LocalesEntities localesModel = new LocalesEntities(); var routesQuery = from rs in routesModel.Routes.ToList() join ls in localesModel.Locales.ToList() on rs.LocaleID equals ls.LocaleID select new { LocaleID = rs.LocaleID, RouteName = rs.RouteName }; **Question** : How to get generated SQL from this query, or how to convert its type to ObjectQuery to use routesQuery.ToTraceString(). Is it possible?**Reason** : I want to log all SQL queries to DB, though I don't want to create new object for joined contexts (tables)**Important** : I can't use ObjectQuery initially because after all I use     ListView.DataSource = routesQuery;    ListView.DataBind() And it can cause an error of using to different contexts (DB tables) for one datasource.So what should I do get generated SQL query?Thanks in advance.

SvcUtil-generated code or shared interface/data contract assembly?

If you control both service and client is there any benefit in using svcutil.exe to generate client proxies? Or is it better to share interface/data contract assembly between client and service?

Saving a generated text file

 I have an application that collects data and puts it in a text file.  When the data collection is complete the UI offers the user the opportunity to save or open the text file with a dialog box using this code: Response.Clear(); Response.ClearHeaders(); Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + outputFilename + ";"); Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.Private); Response.ContentType = "text/plain"; Response.WriteFile(outputFilePath + outputFilename); Response.End(); Response.Flush(); The problem is this.  The starting interface allows the user to select a large number of data gathering points.  If all are selected the program will run for about 90 minutes.  Sometimes it will present the dialog box, sometimes not.  Sometimes it will present the dialog box, but regardless of whether the user selects save or open, the dialog box simply disappears, and the data text file is neither displayed nor saved to the client system. When fewer data gather points are selected, and the program runs for 15 minutes or less, there is no problem.  The resulting data can be saved or displayed. The actual data text file is initially stored in the temporary path directory on the web server.  On at least one occasion, where the dialog box disappeared, I was able to
