Web Forms :: Display Only Limited Length Characters Of A Text String From Database In Label Control
Apr 19, 2013
I want label to display limited text say 20 char even the data it retrieve from database may be more than 20 char.. like in gmail,we see message body limited when we click it display whole message..how is that possible...?
I'm making a simple mvc site containing a database over the movies we have at home. When i display my movies i'd like to display "the short version" of the plot, leaving the rest to be read when you actually click on the movie to see more details about it. How can I do this? Do i write some sort of limitation in the string on the index page?
I have a label control in datalist. When thw word is long, the text of label corrupts the design. Label hasn't a multiline property.I tried different ways . I tried to use textbox like a label but this time I can't give a link to textbox.I tried to use MeasureString() method for the label. But I couldn't do it.
I am trying to build a site that will display a word ("Synset" in my code) from a "function call", (ultimately the word will come from another database but I'm ignoring that part for now). The user will click one of 4 radio buttons deciding if the word is "positive", "negative", "neutral", or "can not be determined". Then the user clicks "Save" the word is saved a MS SQL database, the function is called displaying a new word and the process is repeated.
So far I have been able to get this to mostly work by using the code below. The problem is that the function is called and the correct word displayed when the page loads the first time, when I click a radio button and then the "Submit" button, the word and value from the radio button are saved to the database but then no new word is displayed. The text just disappears. The new word is created, as I can see that new words are saved to the database when i click submit.
I'm thinking the issue might be because I'm binding the text attribute of the label I'm using to display the word to the sqldatasource, because it's probably trying to display the text from the database?
I've tried putting the code that gets and displays the new word in FormView1_PageIndexChanging() and submitButton_Click() and neither work.
I've tried to just call Response.Redirect("Default.aspx") in submitButton_Click() and this displays the word but nothing is saved to the database.
I have a table that contains the location for a .txt file for each item. Within that text file is formatted text specific to the row in the table. I have these text files in a folder at location ../tipstext/*.txt on my web host. The code to find the location is:
It seems that it is finding the location okay but then I get this page" Security Exception Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.
Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission, mscorlib, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. How can I make it read the text from the file specified and then write it in the Label control?
Is it possible to show only few characters in gridview column. Lets say there are 5 columns in the gridview and one of the field is the description field. assume description field is too long. So What i want is to show that description field value to 50 character limit.
I am trying to insert "Date" and "Time" in database table (both are separate columns) using below code:
string query = "Insert into tempTable(List_Id, Date, Time) VALUES('" + lblId.Text + "', @Date, @Time)"; SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, connection); connection.Open(); TimeSpan time = new TimeSpan(); time.ToString(); cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Date", Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString())); cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Time", Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.Now.ToString("HH:mm:ss"))); cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); connection.Close();
Above record is inserted in DB like below:In Date column: 12/29/2014 12:00:00 AMIn Time column:12/29/2014 5:30:46 PMDatatype for "Date" and "Time" column is "datetime"I want that: as I save the Date and Time in DB table, it should display same date and same time what is saved in DB table not current date and time.I tried below code to fetch saved records from table, after inserting Date and Time in DB:
string query2 = "Select Date, Time where Id='" + itemId + "'"; SqlCommand cmd2 = new SqlCommand(query2, connection); connection.Open(); SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(query2, connection); DataTable dt = new DataTable(); da.Fill(dt); lblDate.Text = DateTime.Parse(dt.Rows.ToString()).ToString("dd-MM-yyyy"); lblTime.Text = DateTime.Parse(dt.Rows.ToString()).ToString("HH:MM tt");
But currently it is giving me below output : Date:29-12-2014Time:18:04 PM (current time)..
Why its showing current date time in place of saved record ??
I have a label contol and text box on my page. I want the label control to display the text(that will come from the text box control) as soon as user type in text box control. I know that would include script manager control and update panel control. But really donno how to achieve in using code.
I am using mySQL. I have separate tables for several languages. When I display the Greek statements I seem to be limited to between 192 and 201 characters. That is not the problem with English, Danish, Dutch, Russian, or Farsi. I am using the same code for each with the only change being which table is opened. (In fact I just took the Dutch code and changed only the name of the table I'm opening to the Greek table and had the same problem.)The problem is that I've also double checked the statements in the table and they are complete, e.g., some have up to 255 characters.

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?
