VS 2008 - Server Text Field To Text Box

Apr 11, 2014

I have an old database that still contains depreciated Text fields. I need to pull from these fields and display the results. You would think this should be easy... First my select statement caused a problem:

SELECT DISTINCT ..., CustomerInstructions, ... FROM Orders
where CustomerInstructions is a Text field.

The error I get: "The text data type cannot be selected as DISTINCT because it is not comparable." A quick search shows I can cast the text field as a varchar(max).

SELECT DISTINCT ..., CAST(CustomerInstructions AS VARCHAR(MAX)), ... FROM Orders

Now I get an error while trying to load the instructions into a text box: "Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. Parameter name: index"

Not sure what the problem is here. I have text and a text box. What's with the "out of range" crap?

VS 2008 DataFormatString For Text Field?

May 11, 2010

I have an asp gridview that I am exporting to Excel. The data exports perfectly except for fields that are text fields with leading zeros. I have a field in the data grid for job number that has leading zeros. When that data is exported to Excel 000564 gets exported as only 564.Is there DataFormatString expression that I can use that will force that column to be exported to Excel as text.I have also thought about changing the SQL statement to so the job number is definitely a string by concatenating using ĎJí + jobnumber as JobNumber but my users donít want a ĎJí in front of the job number.Is there a DataFormatString expression for a text string?

C# - Save A Binary File In SQL Server As BLOB And Text (or Get The Text From Full-Text Index)?

Mar 26, 2010

Currently we are saving files (PDF, DOC) into the database as BLOB fields. I would like to be able to retrieve the raw text of the file to be able to manipulate it for hit-highlighting and other functions.Does anyone know of a simple way to either parse out the files and save the raw text on save, either via SQL or .net code. I have found that Adobe has a filtdump utility that will convert the PDF to text. Filtdump seems to be a command line tool, and i don't see a way to use a file stream. And what would the extractor be for Office documents and other file types?-or-Is there a way to pull out the raw text from the SQL Full text index, without using 3rd party filters?Note i am trying to build a .net & MSSql solution without having to use a third party tool such as Lucene

VS 2008 - Reading Contents Of A Text File Into Text Box On Form

Jul 13, 2011

I'm trying to read the contents of a text file into a text box on my form. When I run the following code, nothing happens.

VB.NET Code:
Protected Sub lbLogs_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles lbLogs.SelectedIndexChanged       
For Each li As ListItem In lbLogs.Items           
If li.Selected Then                Using sw As New StreamReader(li.Value)                   
txtLog.Text = sw.ReadToEnd                     sw.Close()                End Using            End If        Next    End Sub

I populate the ListBox with ListItems and each ListItem's Value property holds the full path to the file. But, I removed all of that and just put txtLog.Text = "test" inside of the "is selected" block.

SQL Server :: Full - Text Feature On SQL Server 2008 RC2 Stops Working

Dec 19, 2010

I'm using the full-text feature on SQL Server 2008 RC2. Everything had been working well until today. I wanted to change the language for word breakers from Neutral to Slovakia. After I did that, I can't perform full-text search anymore. It simply give me no rows. I even deleted the old full-text catalog and created a new one and populated it, but it still gave no solutions. I tried to query dm_fts_index_keywords_by_document on my table and get only 1 row with a display term END OF FILE.

DataSource Controls :: SQL SERVER 2008: Full Text Search Can't Find Prefixes Correctly?

May 9, 2010

I'm implementing an AJAX autocomplete feature where the user types into a textbox and the webpage generates suggestions (pretty much like how Google's search box works). I got the AJAX part to work right, but for some reason, my database query does not.Let's say I want to find "Chicago". Using the following query does not find it.SELECT TOP 10 citynames FROM city WHERE CONTAINS(citynames, 'chi*')But using this query does.SELECT TOP 10 citynames FROM city WHERE CONTAINS(citynames, 'chicago')By the way, "citynames" is an ntext type field and I'm using SQL SERVER 2008.Does anyone know why my first query can't find "Chicago"? I've been staring at that query for hours, yet can't find anything wrong with it. Something wrong with the database maybe?

C# - How To See Text From One Text Field In Another Text Field

Sep 6, 2010

clarify: i am using a virtual keyboard that has to work on deferent text fields, and deferent pages, every time i click on a text field it sould pop up and every key i press i need to show on the text field....the problem, as every one knows, is to bind a deferent text field to the virtual keyboard, And as i said, also, to use it on deferent pages without rewriting the keyboard code for every page again and again, some thing that will not do... still can not give any code as there is no code to give, so there is no code...

i don't have code to show becouse i am trying to figure out how to do this and not showing a problem...

Background: I have an aspx file that holds a keyboard div and a hidden TextArea or an Input type=hidden (not decided yet). This page is a user control so it cen be used in all the pages that needs it...

What i am tring to do: Using JQuery bind('focus',...) method to bind any field in a certian aspx page (not the keyboard UC itself) to the hidden text field, i want that every thing i click on the keyboard will show in the text field that is on focus....

Can i relate in JS/JQuery to a field that is in a different page, will it recognise it? how can i do the bind, how can i transfer text from one field to another? if there a better way to do this, i will be happy to hear about it...

Can someone tell me what goes in the text box? And if I have the variable set right?

How To Make A Text Field

Mar 1, 2010

I know that this is easy for those that know but alas this is not me ;)

I have a multi part form that is going to write to a dB.

As a point of reference I can offer [URL](i.e., the quote process) as a model for my project.

I need to write a record on the first page and then use the auto number generated from this to populate the child records with the parent's key field.

What I was hoping to do is write the record and then send the data from the dB to the second form. Iwill then need to repeat this process for the children of the child

I am only moderately familiar with ASP.net

one thing to add is that i am not forcing the user to create an account in order to maje the initial inquiry, only if they wish to reaccess theinformation at a later date.

C# - ListBox - Value Being Set To Text Field?

Mar 3, 2011

When adding list item the Value field is being set to the Text field. Initially I though the problem was related to the input parameter for the primary key ( group_type_id ) as it is configured as OUTPUT variable.

Interesting enough, when I Watch all of the values, everything is correct.
So for example, I'll watch these:

ddr["group_type_name"] comes out as "Dept"
ddr["grouptypeid"] comes out as 4

When the item is created however,

itms.TEXT = "Dept"
itms.Value = "Dept" <-- THIS IS THE PROBLEM

I'm at a loss why the listbox values are being set to the text values when I can clearly see the data reader values are correct. ?

Optimizing A Table With A Huge Text-field?

Mar 4, 2011

I have a project which generates snapshots of a database, converts it to XML and then stores the XML inside a separate database. Unfortunately, these snapshots are becoming huge files, and are now about 10 megabytes each. Fortunately, I only have to store them for about a month before they can be discarded again but still, a month of snapshots turn out to become real bad for it's performance...I think there is a way to improve performance a lot. No, not by storing the XML in a separate folder somewhere, because I don't have write access to any location on that server. The XML must stay within the database. But somehow, the field [Content] might be optimized somehow so things will speed up...I won't need any full-text search options on this field. I will never do any searching based on this field. So perhaps by disabling this field for search instructions or whatever?The table has no references to other tables, but the structure is fixed. I cannot rename things, or change the field types. So I wonder if optimizations is still possible.Well, is it?The structure, as generated by SQL Server:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Snapshots](
[Identity] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[Header] [varchar](64) NOT NULL,[code]....

Performance isn't just slow when selecting data from this table but also when selecting or inserting data in one of the other tables in this database! When I delete all records from this table, the whole system is fast. When I start adding snapshots, performance starts to decrease. After about 30 snapshots, performance becomes bad and the risk of connection timeouts increase.Maybe the problem isn't in the database itself, although it's still slow when used through the management tool. (Fast when Snapshots is empty.) I mainly use ASP.NET 3.5 and the Entity Framework to connect to this database and then read the multiple tables. Maybe some performance can be gained here, although that wouldn't explain why the database is also slow from the management tools and when used through other applications with a direct connection...
