DataSource Controls :: Incorrect String / Format The QueryBuilder String Correctly In Code?

Jul 7, 2010

I'm concatenating a string in codebehind to use in a sql select statement.

in aspx

<asp:Label ID="LabelHidden" runat="server" Visible="False"></asp:Label>
SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Data] WHERE [ActivityName] IN (@ActivityName) AND ([ID] = @ID)"
<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="DropDownList_Employees" Name="ID"
PropertyName="SelectedValue" Type="Int32" />
<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="LabelHidden" Name="ActivityName"
Type="String" />
in codebehind
foreach (ListItem li in ListBox_Activities.Items)
if (li.Selected)
queryBuilder += li + "', ";
queryBuilder = queryBuilder.Substring(0, queryBuilder.Length - 1);
LabelHidden.Text = queryBuilder;

When i run the code it comes up blank. I did a query trace and it seems to be running as

exec sp_executesql N'SELECT * FROM [Data] WHERE [ActivityName] IN (@ActivityName) AND ([ID] = @ID)',N'@EmployeeID int,@ActivityName nvarchar(50)',@EmployeeID=4,@ActivityName=N'Production Technical Support'', Tools Development'','

with exta "'s

How can i format the queryBuilder string correctly in my code?

C# - Input String Was In Incorrect Format Error When Saving To Database

Feb 7, 2011

In SQL Server I have a db column named AppZip with type int. I have a textbox with a 5 digit zip code. When i try to save I get an error "Input string was in incorrect format." I'm confused. I'm converting the string representation of "12345" to int type, how is it the wrong format for the database? Here's my code.

q.AppZip =Convert.ToInt32(txtAppZip.Text);

(I'm using linq to sql...)

EDIT: It was because I didn't stop the method that populates the field on page load from executing on post back.

DataSource Controls :: SQLDatasource FilterExpression Error - Input String Was Not A Correct Format

Nov 25, 2010

I get the Erorr: Input String was NOT a correct format.

The first three controlparameters are STRINGS and they work fine.

However the last two populate the controlparameter from text boxes that can only accept numbers and decimal point.

First the text boxes for {3} and {4} string parameters in the SQL filterexpression:

And then the SQLDatasource control parameters[Code]....

The last two control parameters are the ones is question as they feed {3} and {4} parameters in the filter expression, NOTICE how I set the type="double".The data input is expected to be like 152.25 or 3.6 or 4 etc,So why am I getting this error: [Code]....

C# - Using String.Format To Build Regular Expressions: "Input String Was Not In A Correct Format"

Mar 7, 2011

I'm bulding document-from-template engine. At certain points I need to match on Reg Exp groups and replace template text with content from a db.

I 'hardcoded' my RegExp initially, doing something like: Regex r = new Regex(@"{DocSectionToggle::(?<ColumnName>w+)::(?<ResponseValue>.+)}[[(?<SectionContent>.+)]]", RegexOptions.Multiline);

it does group capture, so the syntax isn't the prettiest.

Just to make things neater and because I want' to keep the patterns in web.config or elsewhere, I've 'evolved' algorithm to something like:


But I'm getting an error: 'Input string was not in correct format'.

Is this a limitation of string.Format(...)?

<ks:DatePicker ID="txtMinDate" runat="server" Width="65px"></ks:DatePicker>

txtJobName.Text, txtOperator.Text, System.Convert.ToInt32(txtShift.Text));

when i run this code it says Input String not in correct format, if i pass null values for all the parameters , I am using Linq to sql and If i execute the stored proc with null values in the database it works fine, it does not let me pass null values from the C sharp page.

DataSource Controls :: Code Behind Fail SQL String?

Mar 16, 2010

ive an access database with a table, in this table there is only one data column and one counter column (id, pet) i want to draw random a record. Reading on the web i came with this SQL solution: "SELECT TOP 1 FROM tab_pets ORDER BY Rnd(id)" and it works perfectly.

The problem is while using this statement in my code behind (in a class) as it draw always the same record, hence generates the same random each time. I though that the access Rnd() function would be handled by the access driver and not by my application, how can i resolve this?

JavaScript - Format A String Using A String Pattern?

Sep 23, 2010

I have a displayFormat pattern "$###,###,###;-$###,###,###;#"( it can be different too) and I want to reformat the value in the AspxTextbox after deleting the ',' on GotFocus and LostFocus events by calling the following JavaScript function :


I have tried to use ASPxFormatter but it is an internal class that is not indented to be used in a user project.Using String.Format('{0:' + displayFormat + '}', parseInt(value))); didn't work too , it threw an exception since String.format doesn't accept this format of pattern,Can you provide a way to reformat my string to any pattern I want not only the one I recite since ?

DataSource Controls :: Connecting To SQL Server In Visual Studio 2008 Using Code - Error: 25 - Connection String Is Not Valid

Feb 2, 2010

Background: I use SQL server 2005 developer edition and visual studio 2008. Visual studio 2008 is running on a local machine with Vista business edition. SQL server is running on a remote server using Windows server 2003. Both computers are within the same domain.

Problem: First, I used the server explorer to connect to the SQL server. Everything works as desired. Then I write code to do the same thing. I keep getting the following error message:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 25 - Connection string is not valid)

However, I used the exactly identical connection string as the one used in the server explorer. So connection string should not be the problem. In addition, I tried the test code in MSDN, which tells whether my domainusername can flow the network. It turns out the user name is fine. I also went to the SQL server management studio and found the login for my computer is NVCWeihao while my computer login name is NVCweihao. I am wondering if this uppercase letter really affects the connection.

Web Forms :: Incorrect String After Url Rewrite?

Mar 12, 2011

I'm having a bit of trouble with some strings I am using after rewriting my Url.

My url is here: [URL]

In the above example, Warwickshire is the county and Warwick is the town. I'm referring to these in my query string and am assigning the relevant town/ county to strings in my code behind in order for me to populate labels in page text.

The problem I'm having is that the labels in my page aren't being updated like 'Warwickshire' or 'Warwick, but as 'Warwickshire-Magician' or 'Magician-Warwick'. You can see in the above example that this is making my text not make sense at all. I want to get rid of the 'Magician-' text so I am just left with the town/ county name.

My code behind is as follows:

How To Make String With Arabic Chars Display Correctly On Web Page

Jul 14, 2010

on my page i have a time range printed in the format of 12:00 AM - 12:00 PM i have to display this appropriately for whatever culture the browser supplies. i'm having an issue with arabic (ar-ae): the am/pm indicator seems to change the text ordering for part of the string. the string has the right characters in the right places in memory, but shows them in a different order.

so for my start and end times, i have strings like 03:00 ص and 11:00 مand then i put them together like
string dummytext = t1string + " - " + t2string; when the page is written, the range is displayed as 03:00 ص - 11:00 م i've tried putting each piece in a Label control and wrapping everything in a div with dir="ltr" and haven't made any progress. this is happening in a table cell if it makes any difference.
