Storing Equal Signs (=) In XML Documents?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm facing a problem that Google couldn't solve yet!I'm trying to store URLs in an XML file. Problem is that these URLs contain Equal Signs (=) in them. And that generates an error.Here is my code: (**token is a variable that contains the URL)

Dim child As String = vbCrLf & "<Link URL='" & token & "'></Link>"
Dim fragment As XmlDocumentFragment = doc.CreateDocumentFragment
fragment.InnerXml = child

The error message: (Error line and position are meaningless here) '=' is an unexpected token. The expected token is ';'. Line 2, position 133.I've replaced all '&' symbols with '&' in case they were the ones causing the error, but no luck so far.

Sql - Pound Signs () Disappearing From Strings?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm usually a LAMP developer, but some .NET work has arrived on my plate and I'm a bit stumped.

If I run the following code:

<% poundsign = "" %>
<% Response.Write poundsign %>
<% Response.Write "" %>

... nothing is displayed. However, outside of the <% %> tags (ie in the HTML) displays correctly.

I have no trouble displaying the usual alphanumerics, it's just the sign that is proving problematic. The underlying file is in Windows 1252 encoding, and I need to serve it as such. If I save the file as UTF-8, I get mojibake instead of a .

what I can do to make this work, or any settings that might be preventing it from working (other than saving the file in a different format)?

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework - Allow Dollar Signs For Decimal Types?

Sep 5, 2010

Using ASP .Net 4.0,Entity Framework and EntityDataSource.

I have some currency fields that are defined as Decimal. I would like to allow the user to enter a (leading) dollar sign in these (TextBox form fields). Although, when the EntityDataSource goes to save the changes to the datbase, it throws:

Error while setting property 'QuotedMaterial': 'Cannot convert the value of parameter 'QuotedMaterial' to the type 'System.Decimal'.'.

Does anyone know how I can "tell" the EF to allow dollar signs and convert (drop) them accordingly? I am trying to avoid creating my own Data or Business Logic layer for this particular application. I would like to stick with the EntityDataSource and other
"built in" controls to minimize the C# code behind as much as possible.

I guess my only alternative is to deny $ (Dollar Signs) (and commas too for that mater, it doesn't like them either). The problem is I am porting a legacy application and I would like to keep it as close to the original as possible (and they are currently
allowed to enter dollar signs in this application). You see, they use copy/paste for data entry quote often on this particular form and it just so happens that the source data (they are copy/pasting from) always has a $ in it...

Security :: Remove The Cache Of A Page After The User Signs Out

Jan 21, 2011

I have an ASP.NET website in which the user has the Login/Logout functionality. There are some pages which are viewable only if the user is logged in. Now, after the user signs out, I noticed that the user is still able to see this restricted page on pressing the back button. I want to create the functionality such that once the user signs out, the page should not be viewable. How can that be done?

P.S I am not using built in Login controls in ASP.NET

Web Forms :: HTML Page Scraping - Picks Up The Values Between The Tag But Not The Signs In Front Of It?

Jul 29, 2010

I seem to be having some challenges with the data I am retriveing from a Webpage using the Webclient class. The code works fine, however I observe that the regular expression is not picking up the negative or positive sign in the Daily_Movement data. For example, a daily movement can be -0.31 or +0.31 but the code is not picking the sign in front of the decimal values.Here is my code


I think where the problem lies is the part of the code Regex r1 = new Regex("<span class="quoteData">.*</span>"); It picks up the values between the tag quite well, but not the signs in front of it. [Code]....

C# - When Are Two Datetime Variables Equal

Dec 27, 2010

I try to compare Datetime.Now with a Datetime variable I set, using the Datetime.CompareTo() method. I use a timer to compare these every second and display the result, but as the current time approaches the time I set, the result changes from 1 to -1, but never 0, which means these two are never equal. I'm suspecting the Datetime structure contains milliseconds?

Why Object Is Not Evaluating To Be Equal To True

Jun 23, 2010

I have a simple method which takes an Object and return string "No" or "Yes". Basically I want to display "Yes" or "No" when a bool value of 0 or 1 is there

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox3" runat="server" MaxLength="50" Width="150px" Text='<%# Checkvalue(Eval("AustResident")) %>' />

But everytime there is a 1 passed to the CheckValue which in the debug shows as true, It never evaluates being equal to "true" what am I doing wrong? My Checkvalue is always returning "No" no matter what I pass.

protected string Checkvalue(object obj)
if (obj != null)
if (obj.Equals("true"))
return "Yes";
return "No";
return "No";

C# - PeterBlum SelectedIndexCondition Not Equal Functionality?

Oct 21, 2010

we are using the PeterBlum SelectedIndexCondition to control whether or not some controls are displayed using the following snippet:

PeterBlum.DES.MultiFieldStateController fsc = new PeterBlum.DES.MultiFieldStateController();
PeterBlum.DES.SelectedIndexCondition cnd2 = new PeterBlum.DES.SelectedIndexCondition();
cnd2.Index = desiredIndex
cnd2.ControlToEvaluate = ControlToEvaluate//ListBox, dropdown, etc
fsc.Condition = cnd2;

I'd like to be able to achieve this same functionality except to fire when the desired index IS NOT set. I cannot simply create a bunch of Conditions for each index other than the one I specify due to the way this is dynamically being done in my application.

Split C# Collection Into Equal Parts?

Oct 8, 2010

I am trying to split a collection into multiple collections while maintaining a sort I have on the collection. I have tried using the following extension method, but it breaks them incorrectly. Basically, if I was to look at the items in the collection, the order should be the same when compared to the broken up collections joined. Here is the code I am using that doesn't work:

public static IEnumerable<IEnumerable<T>> Split<T>(this IEnumerable<T> list, int parts)
int i = 0;
var splits = from name in list
group name by i++ % parts into part
select part.AsEnumerable();
return splits;
int parts = number of sub enumerables

Textbox - Validate Text Box Contains Integer Greater Than Equal To Zero?

Mar 29, 2010

If I want to validate that a text box contains an integer greater than or equal to zero. Do I need to use TWO asp:CompareValidator controls: one with a DataTypeCheck operator and one with a GreaterThanEqual operator?

Or is the datatype operator redundant? Can I just use a single validator with the GreaterThanEqual operator (and the type set to Integer)?

Data Types Text And Varchar Are Incompatible In The Equal To Operator?

Here is the code:


Dim intusercount As Integer = 0
