How to do the concatenation for the reference

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :WPF

In a web test I use the data source.  Then to specify the reference to the table of the data source, I use the following expression {{SomeData.number5_OtherSomeData#csv.Code}}.

However, when the number is changed for some reason, I should change the reference. But if I use the context parameter, then it will be easier to change, just change the information in the context parameter. But the context parameter of the data source include only that part “SomeData.number5_OtherSomeData#csv” because I have several expressions.

So, how can I concatenate the “SomeData.number5_OtherSomeData#csv” with “.Code”?

A better way to reference your wizard steps using named steps

Note: this article uses the plain vanilla but the concepts apply equally well to its popular counterpart .

By far the most common way that I see wizard steps reference in code snippets is by their index.

reference from menubuttons to text parts in article on the same page


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.

Registering controls of current assembly object reference NOT set error


Hi There,

I have created a simple ASP.net Web Application (2.0) and have added a web user control.

Now in my page I have added this control but I have registered like this,

<%@ Register Assembly="WebApplication1" Namespace="WebApplication1" TagPrefix="Custom" %>

Which means I want to access all the controls in my current Web Application project

Then I have added my user control like this,

<Custom:MyUserControl ID="MyUserControl1" runat="server" PublicProperty="Hello" />

Every thing is fine but when I execute the project, NO control on my user control gets "instantiated" and thus I receive error "Object Reference Not Set"

Note that My Control has,

1) Public property PublicProperty as String

2) 1 Label control

In Load Event Handler I am setting Text property of Label Control to PublicProperty. Here object reference NOT set error occurs (which means Label control is NOT initialized).

I don't want to register my control using Src, TagPrefix etc. Any ideas?

LINQ Sorting After Goup w/ Table Reference


Having a little trouble here.  I am taking a table (Articles) and grouping all the results by the key that references another table (ArticleSectionCategories).  I then want to sort these results by the OrderBy field of the referenced table (ArticleSectionCategory.OrderBy).  This is what I am using right now but it is not working.  Any thoughts?


                var GroupedArticles = from A in DC.Articles
                                     where A.PackagesId == packageId
                                     group A by A.ArticleSectionCategoriesId into G
                                     select G.OrderBy(C => C.ArticleSectionCategory.OrderBy);


Custom tool error: Failed to generate code for the service reference 'CompanyService'. Please che


A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

iTextSharp - Multiple Document Concatenation



I have built a routine which takes a byte() array and passes it to iTextSharp for rendering as a PDF.  This is working just fine.

However, in my application, users want to be able to select multiple documents and have the program render them as a single, combined PDF.

For the purpose of this discussion, let's say they chose two documents.  I form the byte() array containing the data of the first document and then, I increase the size of that byte() array and load the second document's data into one.  The result is that I have a single combined byte() array which I now want to render.

However, when the PDF viewer opens (in runtime), it's only showing me the first document (as if there is no more data in the byte() array to render).
My thinking is that perhaps it's picking up the End Of File (EOF) marker and therefore not rendering the data past that point in the byte() array.

Any thoughts on this?  Here's my code.

Prior to the For/Next construct, I have a dataset already containing a list of documentId's from a database that works with my EDM package.
A webservice call returns the byte() array for each document in my dataset into mb() and I use mbbnew() to build the combined byte() array for the documents requested by the user.

Just to be clear,

FileUpload error: Object reference error


I have a FormView with a FileUpload to upload an image in a database.

I keep getting an object reference error.(view code)

I am using this same script to upload the image to the database, but when I try to update the file upload I get the error.    

string strFilePath=Server.MapPath("\\images\\"+fupdImage.FileName);

        Byte[] image=null;
        HttpPostedFile imgVid=FileUpload.PostedFile;

        image=new Byte[imgVid.ContentLength];//Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

        if(FileUpload.HasFile) {
        string imageFile=FileUpload.PostedFile.FileName;
        int index=imageFile.LastIndexOf(".");
        string fileFormat=imageFile.Substring(index+1);


How to reference a listbox from a procedure


I have a listbox that gets loaded from a couple of different places on my web form.

I would like to put the code to load the listbox in one place, rather than have two copies of it.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to reference the listbox control successfully from within a procedure.

Would anyone know how to do this?

My code looks like this:

private static bool LoadSubscriptionListBox(System.Web.UI.Page Page)
        bool bReturn = false;

        // Clear the listbox

        // Load the listbox



Cannot access Label inside Repeater - "Object reference not set..."


I have a button on a page with a Repeater and an ObjectDataSource. To give credit where credit is due, the Repeater's paging functionality is courtesy of ScottGu. (However, I'm using ASP.NET 4.0 and SQL Server 2008, as opposed to ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005.)

Anyway, in the button's click event, I need to access the Text property of a Label that's inside the Repeater because it's used as an input parameter in a stored procedure. I'm getting a NullReferenceException when trying to access the Label's Text property. I have researched this error and have tried a few different solutions (involving FindControl and the Repeater's ItemDataBound event), but I haven't been able to get it to work. Any suggestions, in VB or C#, would be greatly appreciated. The code is below.


<asp:Repeater ID="rptText" runat="server" DataSourceID="tbsDataSource">
<table width="100%" cellspacing="1">
<%-- some rows removed for brevity --%>

VS2010 Silverlight 4 - Getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when loading a

In Visual Studio 2010 I'm trying to use the Blacklight Controls (http://blacklight.codeplex.com/releases/view/37652) in my own project (and actually included the Blacklight.Controls project in my solution so that I could debug what was going on) and... after making all the XAML changes needed to incorporate the Blacklight navigation menu with my stuff in the innermost grid... everything compiled ok when doing a Build.  When I run it there's a reference to a resource dictionary in the XAML that fails with the object reference error above.  The XAML is as follows:       <UserControl.Resources>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager x:Key="ResourceDictionaryManager">       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager.ResourceDictionaries>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryCollection>       <controls:ResourceDictionary Path="/Blacklight.Showcase;component/ResourceDictionaries/DavesGlossyControls.xaml">       <controls:ResourceDictionary.ResourceKeys>       <controls:ResourceKeyCollection>       <controls:ResourceKey ResourceName="GlossyBlackScrollViewer" />       </controls:ResourceKeyCollection>     &

The type 'DataGrid' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that

Hi; I'm new to WPF and I was going through the ExpenseIt tutorial on MSDN's website. The tutorial was working fine until I added DataGrid. I got the error message: "The type 'DataGrid' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that all referenced assemblies have been built."     I could not find a clear answer online of which assembly references to fix and how to fix them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!     Note: I'm running the following: Windows Vista 32-bit operating system Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Version 9.0.30729.1 SP Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.5 SP1
