How do I set a string in a textbox to unicode?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have a report requirement to embed the fonts when the report is exported to PDF. The report server is  SSRS 2005 SP3 and upgrading to SSRS2008 is not an option. I have validated that all requirements have been met to ensure embedding have been met except one -  "The characters in the string that has the Font property set are Unicode, not ANSI. No font embedding occurs for ANSI characters." I referenced this article for requirements -  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159713.aspx . My data is in a dataset field that was populated by a stored procedure. When I examine the rdl the it has a type name of System.String (<rd:TypeName>System.String</rd:TypeName>) How can I ensure that any strings in the report are recognized as unicode? The SSRS PDF renderer must be interpreting the strings as ANSI because that's how they are being rendered in the PDF file preventing embedding. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Conversion from type 'TextBox' to type 'String' is not valid

I have a FormView that allows a user to register for a company event. I want to do a couple of things with this form. 1. I need to write this data to a MS SQL database 2. I need to send an email confirmation of their registration to their email. I know how to do both of these things, but i am having trouble doing both at the same time. It would be nice if I could do it in one click, but I coded it into two pages to try to help simplify it. The first page allows the user to input their information into a formview and when they click the submit button, it places those answers into session variables:Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Session("FirstName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("FirstName") Session("LastName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("LastName")  <li> <label> First Name</label> <asp:TextBox ID="FirstName" runat="server" class="text-box" Text='<%# Bind("FirstName") %>' /> </li> </ul> </div>

Column Name - cannot convert between unicode & nonunicode string data types



Im using the OLEDB Source to connect the source columns. But its throwing an error msg Column Name - cannot convert between unicode & nonunicode string data types. Could you please provide me the oracle code so that I can use with the select statement. For some of the schemas I have chaged the data types using the derived column before the OLEDB destination.

Actually, one of my team member suggested me to use the Oracle char(2) in the select statement. Can any one help me with the code so that I can use it for the rest of the columns.

Eg source(External Column) - CreatedBYID - DT_wstr(18)

Source - Output cloumn - CreatedById - DTStr(18)

Append string values to an asp.net textbox.


I created a number pad using imagebuttons.  We have touch screen monitors and I was appending the string value of the button on the server side, but it was flashing every time you pressed a button.  So I want it when the press the ImageButton that says 1 on it to append 1 to the contects of the textbox.

This is the HTML code for the asp.net imageButton.

<asp:ImageButton ID="imgNumberPadButton1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/App_Themes/Images/NumberPadButtons/Button1.png" onclientclick="PressNumber1();return false;"/>

Here is my Javascript.

<script type="text/javascript">
        function PressNumber1()
            var currentText = document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText;
            var newText = currentText + '1';
            document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText = newText;
I also tried this.
document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText += '1';

It just keeps displaying 1 in the textbox.  I need to continue to append numbers into the aspNet textBox and then submit the contents to the server when a different imageButton is

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key
