Forms Data Controls :: Store Format Or Format Output Of Text Field Into Datalist

Mar 29, 2011

I have a text field that users enter information into a database (SQL Server). They are entering as little as a few sentances to multiple paragraphs. I can successfully display the data on my webpage, but the text field is not formatted very nicely. The output is all smashed together like one big paragraph. Ironically, when I also display the text as a tool tip it outputs as multiple paragraphs like it was entered. How can I format the output in the datalist to create a more readable text field? My datalist field is as follows:

<asp:Label id="WebDescriptionLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("WebDescription") %>' ForeColor="Brown" />

DataSource Controls :: Can Store Text Format Information In Sql

Jan 8, 2010

I need to enter text in sql in nvarchar(max) .. the text contains titles and paragraphs.

I was using a separate table called paragraphs to enter paragraph title and paragraph content. These get a 'article ID' so I can read them out of SQL. On my page I format title and content differently.

Now I was wondering if I can enter Title format information into sql (as the <br/>) tags, so that i can enter all article information into 1 table column.

Forms Data Controls :: Datalist Item Template Format?

Feb 15, 2011

I have the following line to display a piece of data and I want to know how I can format the output.

Text='<%# Eval("DOH") %>'

The data list displays the correct data, but I want to format it. The output I want is just a small date format instead of date and time. I have tried every combination of a format function I can think of, but can't seem to make it work. Am I stuck with the raw format provided by the database? I wouldn't think so, but maybe that is the case.

expected output should be 02/15/2011 instead of 02/15/2011 09:45:

Forms Data Controls :: Sort Date (in A Datalist) Which Is In String Format?

Feb 18, 2011

I have created a class file which gets me the state codes,license numbers and the expiration dates for the same.

I fetch the expiration dates in string format.

Each customer can have many licenses.

I have changed the format of the date (initially appearing as YYYY/MM/DD 00:00:00 when retrieved from database) to MM/DD/YYYY.

After retrieving all the licenses pertaining to a single customer, I bind them to a datalist.

Now the requirement is that for each customer, I need to sort the licenses according to the latest expiration date and then display the same.

How can this be achieved ?

Forms Data Controls :: Format Integer Field In Gridview?

Dec 23, 2010

I have a GridView that records can be added to.There are only 2 fields in the table that the records come from which are date field and an integer field.The date field is fine "as is".The problem is that you can't format the integer field.I have tried every way that I can think off.The last 2 ways that I have tried have used String.Format because I am using EVal and with Eval you can supply anoptional second parameter to specify a format for the returned string.I have tried in both html and code behind , html gives an error message but the code behind (code behindthe RowDataBound method) doesn't give an error message:In the html looks like:

<%# Eval(("inFrmDate").ToString(), String.Format("{G}")) %>

AJAX :: How To Format Text In C# Into Proper JSON Format

Nov 30, 2010

I'm using jquery autocomplete to call a .aspx page which returns some matching words.

The jQuery stuff relies on a JSON feed to work. Currently, in my C# I'm formatting the output as a string, which ouputs something like this:

{ query:'aa','aardvark','aardvarks']}

I was hoping that because the string is formatted in the JSON format, that would be good enough for the Javascript to process but it appears not.

how to format this text in C# into proper JSON format which JavaScript can deal with properly?

Output The Date In The Correct Format?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a date that is entered into the database in dd/MM/yyyy format via a form.

It is then outputted on another page in a sort of calendar style, ie MMM and dd.

When this form is filled in in the UK, and the date is for example the 3rd April, everything is ok. However if filled out in the US, when outputted the date shows as 4th March.

So my question is how do I ensure, when outputting the date, it's read as dd/MM/yyyy and not MM/dd/yyyy ?

Is it a problem that should be addressed when the data is added, or when it is printed?

For reference:

When the date is added:


And when it is printed:

<span class="month">@row.EntryDate.ToString("MMM")</span>
<span class="day">@row.EntryDate.ToString("dd")</span>

VS 2008 Submitting Data Field In Different Format Using SQLDataSource

On my web pages I display the data as mm/dd/yyyy and that is how the user will enter the dates as well. But when I pass the textbox control that has the date in it as a parameter to the SQLDataSource control, I need it to be sent in the YYYY-MM-DD format for the AS400. Is there a way it can be changed in between?
