double spin text in richtextbox

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
i want to implement this feature : if i have a following sentence : {my name is james vick and iam a {member|user|visitor} on this {forum|website|site} and iam loving it | iam admin and iam a {supervisor|admin|moderator} on this {forum|website|site} and iam loving it} on a click of button i want to generate this : my name is james vick and iam a member on this site and iam loving it or iam admin and iam a admin on this forum and iam loving it The basic need is to randomly choose words between {|} braces I have been able to do this for inner nest i.e. for {member|user|visitor}. But how to include the outer nest of sentences also i.e. {something blah blah {blah1|blah2} and | something else} ? code for inner nest : Private Sub SimpleButton3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SimpleButton3.Click Dim stringWithTextIn As String = RichTextBox1.Text Dim regex As New Regex("{(.*?)}") Dim r As String = regex.Replace(stringWithTextIn, New MatchEvaluator(AddressOf ReplaceMatch)) RichTextBox2.Text = r End Sub Private Function ReplaceMatch(ByVal m As Match) As String Dim parts = m.Groups(1).Value.Split("|"c) Return parts(r.Next(0, parts.Length)) End Function i know i just have to change the regex but what do i add in it to include outer braces?

How to save WPF RichTextBox content (text + image) to the database



I want to save (and after that also to retrieve) the content of an WPF RichTextBox (text + image) to/from the database.

I found this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wpf/thread/750a654e-b002-4742-8f46-609e93f6ec81 but like the author said, the solution seams not to work for text with image - the image is ignored/removed and only the formatted text is saved and after that retrieved to/from database.

Know someone a solution about this issue?

Best regards,





ODBC text driver doesn't read columns containing double quotes



I'm having some trouble with importing some information from a delimited text file into an SQL database. I made a DSN for the file using the  Microsoft ODBC driver. It reads most of the data fine. I can get most of it into the database, or using Excel I can display it in a table.

This is a regular text file, the delimiter is a "|" character. Some of the data has double quotes embedded in it. Every time it hits one of these double quotes, the rest of the information on that line are ignored.Then it will move on to the next line in the file.

Is there a way to set up the driver to read these quotes somehow, or to just ignore them?

Wrapping Text (and not words) with the RichTextBox Control


Hi all,


What I am trying to do is create a RichTextBox control on my form. I want the RichTextBox control to only be able to contain 32 characters per line. I am using Courier New font, which is a fixed width font. I can set the width of the control so its long enough to show 32 characters, which works. The problem I am having is that after 32 characters, if I set the WordWrap property to true, it will wrap the last word. I do not want the last word to wrap. I simply want it to go to the next line. I do not want any carriage returns added to the code. I just, visually, want the control to jump to the next line, without wrapping any words. If I set WordWrap to false, then it doesn't wrap at all. it simply keeps going past 32 characters.


Does anyone know a way to make this control wrap text at 32 characters?

AutoCompleteStringCollection for text box in DataGridView 2.0

I have been searching for a way to have autocomplete in a DataGridTextBox

for a TextBox outside of a grid using the AutoCompleteCustomSource. Any
thoughts on how I can add this collection? :)

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

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.


text editor


 I format lines in a .aspx file (source view) the way I can use them, and if I switch to design view or view in browser or debug, the many lines get reformatted to flow all onto one line.

I can't seem to find the correct setting to keep this from happening.

Any suggestions?


Unique text value in databse column


Hi Everyone!

I know this is probably a very basic question but how do I keep a column's text values unique in SQL server (ie for a unique username)?  The column is not an integer it's varchar(50), and it's not the primary key but I could make it the primary key if recommended.

The front end could handle it;  where the user would enter text, it's validated, then a query is done to see if that username is available.  If so, then user can decide to choose it and an insert is done, if not they pick a new username and process repeats.  With this approach, the responsibility of keeping the value unique solely rests on the front end, nothing on the database side.

Is this the correct way to handle this? 

Thank you!
