Forms Data Controls :: Simple Search Function On Records In Sql Database?

Aug 2, 2010

Is there an easy way to search all the columns in the database?

I was the user to input a search word in a textbox and then search all of my database. I then want an array full of the primary keys of all of the records that had the search word contained somewhere in the record (i.e in any of the record fields).

This sounds really simple to me but I can't figure out how to do this and can't find examples online.

Web Forms :: How To Create C# Search Function And Add Friend Function

Jan 1, 2010

I need to create something which is like an Add friend function in my website which works like this:

1) User types in name of the person he wants to search in the search field and clicks enter

2) on the same page, the search result will come out with an "add friend" button beside every name

3) when the user clicks the "add friend" button, he will be brought to another page (or pop up with a message box?) with a text message field to send to the friend, and a submit button to submit the friend request.

4) over at the Friend's page, he will be able to view the add friend request and decide whether to accept or deny the friend request.

How To Implement A Simple Search Mechanism On Webpage

I want to display records based on the Prod ID entered by the user in the text box. Where can I find a tutorial to do that?

I can't find a simple one. I am completely new to .NET, and hardly know anything about grid view, SQL connections and stuff.

I need a step-by-step tutorial that explains how to do it. I want to learn about all of this.

Oh, BTW, I did establish an SQL connection and was successful in displaying my table on the web page. I want to learn how to search from that table and display records.

JQuery :: Simple Return Value From WebMethod From Ajax Function

Sep 22, 2010

I have an Ajax function called from JQuery that goes to a webservice to return a value. I need a SIMPLE example on how I can do this. I've been going nuts with serializing and every other aspect of this topic. I need to return either an ArrayList with ONE string field or a DataTable of some kind. Either way, I'm populating it into a DropDownList. I'm willing to consider alternatives to this idea. (Background info - I get a value from a textbox and I need to run it through a DB to get an associated value or set of values). I'm being really general so that someone can show a simple example.

ADO.NET :: Simple Databinding With LINQ Causing Object Reference Not Set?

Aug 15, 2010

I have a user control with a datalist. I just want to do some simple binding but keep getting an object reference not set to an instance of an object error. The following is the code, I am sure I am just missing something simple:

Dim dc As Forms.DataClassesDataContext = New Forms.DataClassesDataContext
Dim formQuery = From fq In dc.v_form_questions _
Where fq.FormTypeID = FormTypeID _


When I debug, I see values for the formQuery; I am also able to loop through the formQuery and response.write a field out, however every time I try to bind it to a databound control, I get the Object reference not set to an instance of an object error.I initally was using a simple LinqDataSource object, but needed to set the where parameter to the FormTypeID property of this usercontrol. I had a Where condition defined on Page Init, but started getting the object reference error.

ADO.NET :: Linq Search On Integer And Name?

Mar 18, 2011

I have a query which need to search on account table where search criteria looks at either partial name(string column) or partial accountid (integer column).

Linq doesn't allow tostring on integer column to find partial search. The example would be search account number which begins with 124. There might be account numbers like: 1247, 1249 etc which need to be returned. On the name side, searching for string that begins with joh would return john, johk, johp etc.

FYI: The query should return Account table records not annonymous types.

Architecture :: MVC Linq To Sql Repository And Search

Apr 15, 2010

I need some guidance for an application I am working on. I have searched the web and the forum and found parts that answer my questions but I want to do this correctly. My solution uses LINQ to SQL to model the db and I have a repository that is querying my db everytime a controller needs to get some data for the view. I am initially anticipating a maximum of only about a few hundreds hits per day (if that). The website is a directory, with listings and requires a search functionality.

1. What options should I consider to avoid having my repository query the db everytime

2. The site contains a 'search' option, how can I implement this against my repository?

I guess I'm really looking for someone to point me in the right direction. So far I've looked at 'caching' the LINQ to SQL model and Lucene.NET but both seem overkill or am I missing the point?
