SQL Server :: Controlling Length Of Text Fields?

Mar 11, 2011

I was wondering if people out there test the length of their text values before inserting them into an SQL INSERT or UPDATE command? I got lazy and stopped doing it lately but I do restrict the length of some of my character fields so that I have a NCHAR(50) field but don't test the length of the string when inserting or updating and just rely on the server to fire back any problems.Am I being 'efficient' or 'lazy' or even 'dangerous'?I appreciate the opinion of you as just about anyone has more experience with SQL Server than I do.

Web Forms :: TextBox: OnTextChanging / User Is Clearing The Text, If The Length Of Text Becomes Zero?

Jul 20, 2010

I have a page with a text box, a button and a GridView. Enter an account number in the text box, press the check button and the result will show in the GridView.

Now user wants that if the text box is clear, the GridView disappear.

I can only find TextBox1_OnTextChanged. But I want to have that while the user is clearing the text, if the length of text becomes zero, the GridView is clear out. So I am looking for OnTextChanging(). Well of course this function does not exist. How to achieve the same purpose?

Web Forms :: Controlling The Amount Of Text Displayed?

May 28, 2010

I'm sure you've seen sites that display a portion of the available text in a limited space followed by an ellipsis or a [more] link. That's what I need to do. The text is in a database field, and includes carriage returns and line feeds. I can't just count the number of characters. How can I only display the text that will fit in a defined space? I've tried using a panel control with the height defined. I've also tried a div with the height defined. Neither has worked. How is this done?

C# - Encrypting Text Fields At Client - Side And Decrypting Them At Server - Side

Feb 5, 2011

I have a content-sensitive firewall between my clients and my server. If we exclude SSL solution (it's not available in my case) then I was thinking of a javascript library which encrypts custom fields at client-side and a .NET class decrypts them at server-side. Is there any solution out of the box (maybe a server control) ?

Web Forms :: How To Validate The Length Of The Text Present In The Textboxes Of A Gridview Using Javascript

Apr 6, 2010

Can any one let me know "How to validate the length of the text present in the textboxes of a Gridview using javascript".

For Example: In a page I am displaying a Gridview with textboxes inside it and a button on the page. The user need to input some text in the textboxes of the gridview and click on "Submit" button. When the user clicks on Submit Button, we need to validate the length of the text present in the textboxes of the gridview. If the length of the text inside the textbox of the gridview is less than 10 , we need to throw an error message. In the same way we need to do validation for each and every textbox inside the gridview.

C# - Dynamically Growing Text Fields?

Jan 25, 2011

What's the best way to approach the following situation in asp.net mvc2 (c#):I have a form where a user can add more fields ... for example I ask user the details of personal computing devices that they have. For simplicity sake let's say I ask for the brand and type (dropdown list of Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Other) and they can provide unlimited devices. I will start with a pair of text boxes:

<input type="text" />
<input type="button" value="Add more device" />

And then as user click the "Add more device" button I will display another pair of Brand and Type text boxes ... and so on.My question is how should I use HTML helper for this, how I construct the viewModel, etc.I am from PHP background and I used to use the following in PHP:

<input type="text" name="brand[]" />

which on the back end will give me an array of brands ... not sure if that's doable in asp.net environment. I would appreciate any input.[I added the following lines to make my question clearer]
I think I have not been very clear with my question.Suppose I have the following viewmodel:

public class UserRegisterViewModel
public string DeviceBrand { get; set; }

State Management :: SessionID Length Differs Between .NET And SQL Server?

Jul 21, 2010

I have my Web site set up to use SQL Server session state. This works fine. When a session starts, a row is created in ASPStateTempSessions.

When the user logs off the application, I am trying to call the stored procedure TempRemoveStateItem to clean up after myself (not sure if this is the right way to do it or not).

What I noticed is that the SQL table's SessionID column contains 32 characters whereas the .NET Session.SessionID value only contains 24 characters (which match the first 24 characters of the 32 characters stored in the SQL table). Because the values do not match, the stored procedure always fails.

Why would the SessionID value differ between .NET and SQL?

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
