The OP has two different fields that they want to check against Cust_Name and CustID so your IN methodology won't work
Reiss 20-Dec-13 4:10am View
I am assuming that the reg object is not set, which means that it hasn't found the key at the path you have specified.
Reiss 2-May-12 7:07am View
You appear to be affectively spoofing a primary key - any reason why a standard PK won't solve your issue?
Reiss 19-Jan-12 11:30am View
Why not store the exe on file system and hold a reference to its location in the database?
Reiss 17-Jan-12 6:36am View
You can't add a second element directly to an xml docuemnt, it would need to be nested inside a single root element - I have modified my example to show you how this can be done
Reiss 17-Jan-12 4:50am View
This works for ints - the OP mentioned numbers although code shows he is trying to do it with ints, so may need to use the Double.TryParse method
Reiss 10-Jan-12 3:53am View
What platform are you using wpf,, winform etc?
Reiss 4-Jan-12 3:17am View
Do you need to account for multiple instances of either C or M, e.g. CdddMCssMMC

What is your target app written in, what automation framework are you using? - Use the Improve question widget to add some details to what you are trying to achieve.
Reiss 14-Dec-11 4:15am View
Just wondered why you are using vars when you know explicitly what type you are getting?
Reiss 7-Dec-11 3:26am View
The only thing I can suggest is that you update your question (using the improve question widget) to post the code for the method GetInsertDealSheetCommand() as that must be causing the issue
Reiss 6-Dec-11 4:50am View
Are you getting any error messages - if so update the question to add the details.
Reiss 2-Dec-11 4:02am View
What are the values in the cells before you try and parse/convert them?

Are you sure your top level control c is what you think it is, when using master pages, user controls etc the control collections get messy.

Also the formatting on your else if blocks is really nasty - put the if on the same line as the else
Reiss 29-Nov-11 10:52am View
I am with GG on this, for any site that involves transactions (not just finacial ones), testing on live is really really dangerous - you would have to reverse out, or stub out the endpoints - which kind of makes the testing obsolete

works, just not elegant

Good article btw, now voted

What are you struggling with? Getting a list of file names or the data binding or something else?

Your title is misleading - your tip only illustrates how to read and write to the registry - which your app may not have privileges to do in any case

Repost of a repost
Reiss 23-Nov-11 5:06am View
I would suggest it is because you are not calling your binddata() sub on the post back event
Reiss 23-Nov-11 4:10am View
Please don't repost your questions.
Reiss 23-Nov-11 3:40am View
The question wasn't about converting a string to an int but requiring that only numeric characters and a possible initial + sign be entered in the field, so there is no possible out-of-range exception that can be thrown by using a regex to validate the field. The method signature for int.TryParse also requires an out parameter of type int too, so it is
<pre lang="c#">
int t = 0;
bool valid = int.TryParse(myTextBox.value, out t);

whilst this would satisfy the rules required by the OP it would also falsely pass a negative value.

UK phone numbers couldn't be stored as an int as they start with a zero, which would be trimmed off automatically, and internationally they are too big to be stored as an int anyway e.g. +441234123456
Reiss 22-Nov-11 5:25am View
Have you checked that the query is working when run directly against the database via management studio? (Use the improve question widget if you need to amend the question to add extra info) [edit]Missed that bit
Reiss 21-Nov-11 5:59am View
What is the code in the receiving application? Use the Improve question widget to edit your question to add this detail.
Reiss 21-Nov-11 4:29am View
Given that you have got the code that retrieves the data captured by the ECG, then surely your question is how can I write a web application - all you are doing is putting a different UI on a business tier.
Reiss 21-Nov-11 3:56am View
In future please don't repost your question - if you first doesn't have enough detail, use the improve question widget to edit the question and add more details.
Reiss 18-Nov-11 9:02am View
What have you tried and what is the issue you are facing?
Reiss 18-Nov-11 4:47am View
True, but why make two calls to the database when you can do it in one - to me the title suggests that this is what the user is doing
Reiss 17-Nov-11 9:16am View
That takes me back - statistical mechanics was the pet subject of one of my lecturers at uni
Reiss 17-Nov-11 7:24am View
We don't do homework - it is set for a reason, there is also a reasonable chance that your tutor is a member of this site too!

that's the only bit I understood
Reiss 16-Nov-11 11:31am View
I'm sorry but I don't have a clue what you are asking - please use the improve question to explain your issue.
Reiss 16-Nov-11 9:57am View
Thanks missed that bit - always fun guessing what environment the user is working in ;)
Reiss 16-Nov-11 8:26am View
People aren't going to do your work for you - if you get stuck on a particular issue which you can't fix, then posting what you are doing and how it is not working (citing relevant formatted code and error messages) will mean that your question will more likely be looked at and help forthcoming - also don't mark your question as urgent - it is not urgent for the people who help out.
Reiss 16-Nov-11 5:57am View
This is really for the OP - but as it not a solution I have tagged it to yours. Just to give you some idea how big a task it is, I created a fully functional DAG in a win form application and it took about a month in total
Reiss 16-Nov-11 5:35am View
Are you after a directed acyclic graph?

In SQL 2008 didn't they change it that if the account you are using doesn't have permission to the sproc you now get the can't find error rather than the oiriginal you don't have permission error - or am I am getting mixed up with something else?
Reiss 16-Nov-11 5:03am View
use the Improve Question widget to provide more details about what you are asking as it is not clear. Also don't reuqest urgent responses - it is rude and you are much less likely to get help.
Reiss 15-Nov-11 10:53am View
In my opinion when ever I find that the solution to a problem is a dynamic enum I know I have got my design wrong -
<blockquote class="FQ"><div class="FQA">MSDN says:</div>
Robust Programming

Assigning additional values new versions of enums, or changing the values of the enum members in a new version, can cause problems for dependant source code. It is often the case that enum values are used in switch statements, and if additional elements have been added to the enum type, the test for default values can return true unexpectedly.

If other developers will be using your code, it is important to provide guidelines on how their code should react if new elements are added to any enum types.
From enums[^]

Dynamic enums pretty much fall down against these precepts.
Reiss 15-Nov-11 7:12am View
+5 Pretty much the approach I use when working with tabs
Reiss 11-Nov-11 8:18am View
Make sure you have a full back up of your project before you do the migration - just in case you have a client who can't move to the newer framework and you need to support it.

Did you miss the bit about searching the internet before posting a question

A few simple rules when posting your question.

Have you searched or Googled for a solution?
Reiss 8-Nov-11 1:57am View
Sorry it is AddRange for a List
Reiss 3-Nov-11 4:47am View
My comment was not that what you have written for storing the file doesn't work (hence the OT - Off Topic), rather that it doesn't scale.

If person A uploads a file called MyFile.txt and then person B then uploads a a file also called MyFile.txt, the first file on the server will be over-written and you will have two database records pointing to the same physical file.

Depending on your actual requirements you should implement some logic that ensures the filenames on the server are unique or that a second record isn't created
Reiss 31-Oct-11 9:56am View
The same in reverse
Cursor currentCursor = _parent.Cursor
Reiss 28-Oct-11 4:05am View
This isn't a question - please use improve question widget to update your post with the relevant details.

Can you rephrase your question (using the improve question widget), giving more information about what you are trying to achieve please
Reiss 27-Oct-11 3:37am View
Please don't repost your question, if you have changes you want to make to your original one use the Improve question widget provided
Reiss 25-Oct-11 9:47am View
In your code you have a While True loop - may I suggest that you alter it so that you define a meaningful boolean variable instead, so you code becomes

Private Sub ReadSocket()
Dim loopForever as Boolean = True

While loopForever
'Do stuff
End While
End Sub

I find this more readable and more obvious when you come back to look at the code at a later date
Reiss 25-Oct-11 9:36am View

+5, I did think about going down the extension route, but I can't think of a scenario whereby I need to check if any function key has been pressed.
Reiss 19-Oct-11 6:29am View
There are 24 Function keys available

Reiss 13-Oct-11 10:33am View
Is 'notepad' a flat file?
Reiss 13-Oct-11 10:26am View
Just to clarify
1) You have production data in a database (Database_Prod) in table Customer
2) You have archived data in a database (Database_Archive) in table Customer
Reiss 13-Oct-11 10:00am View
+5 Correct anwser as this is the only way to do it - by using regex's it is possible to verify that the email address is valid, but not that it exists

I am trying to ascertain whether the querystring entity should be a single string or not as the syntax supplied is incorrect
Reiss 12-Oct-11 6:22am View
Your supplied code won't compile as is because the value you have tried to assign to querystring is not valid c# syntax
Reiss 12-Oct-11 6:07am View
string queryString = {"id": "1234", "name": "ABC XYZ", "given_name": "ABC", "family_name": "XYZ", "link": "", "gender": "male", "locale": "en-GB"};

have my 5 - your tip works and is explained well - that's all that should matter
Reiss 7-Oct-11 3:51am View
IMO down voting should be used when something it wrong or can be done better, not just because it is common knowledge - how does stuff that is common knowledge get onto the interweb in the first place, if people don't write tips and articles in the first place?

Reiss 23-Sep-11 8:24am View
Not sure why you have been down voted so much - this is pretty much what needs to be done - have +4 from me as just a bit light on the details
Reiss 22-Sep-11 10:35am View
Why bother to understand anything - you can always post your problem requirements in QA and wait for someone else to do it for you ;)

Joking aside good tip +5

have my +5 to counter the 'tard
Reiss 21-Sep-11 3:30am View
Hi Doc, regardless of which constructor you call in your implementing code, the final constructor always gets called, so DoStuff() is always executed
Reiss 21-Sep-11 3:02am View
Hi Robert, in this scenario you are correct, but sometimes you may still need overloaded constructors and so using defaults like you have may not always work, or you have to duplicate the default value in multiple places which introduces human error if you have to change the default value.
Reiss 20-Sep-11 8:01am View
You have tagged your question as both MS-SQL and MySQL, which one is it as thiscould impact the answer
Reiss 20-Sep-11 4:02am View
Apart from the fact that a quick google would have lead to the answer this is a genuine question - most software used in corporations is paid for and requires a license key of some sort, however nearly all corps use some sort of silent deployment tool to deliver the software - indeed it is pretty much the only way to deliver software to a large number of users in disparate locations
Reiss 16-Sep-11 8:20am View
Can you only post the relevant sections of code - people arn't going to trawl through your code dump attempting to guess which part is causing you the issue and can you clarify whay you mean by my checkbox is not working

This sounds like homework - we don't do your homework for you, it also appears that you haven't tried to do anything yourself - people are happy to help out with problems, not write your code for you
Reiss 14-Sep-11 5:24am View
+5 - I use this all the time.
Reiss 13-Sep-11 8:48am View
I can see a few issues, but I really need the 3 table schemas as I suspect that most of the performance issues are going to be around the indexes you (don't) have - also when you run it with the execution plan option turned on where is the main bottle neck?
Reiss 13-Sep-11 7:23am View
If you are using int.tryParse to validate the value you may want to consider renaming your tip, as not all numerics are int's
Reiss 12-Sep-11 6:27am View

Also don't use all caps in your messages (see responses below) - it is considered shouting and therefore rude.

Please don't use all caps - it is considered shouting.

Reiss 6-Sep-11 5:54am View
I can't stress this enough, but make sure your that all indexes and stored procedures are properly maintained otherwise your db perfromance will suffer.

As a minimum always recompile your sp's if you change any of the indexes/statistics for pre SQL 2008
Reiss 6-Sep-11 3:25am View

My vote of 5
A very simple and elegant idea
Reiss 31-Aug-11 11:10am View
Agreed that the database should handle this - if this is the requirement then the userID column should have a unique constraint on it in the database, that way you can just try and insert the record and handle the error if it exists - this has the advantage of getting past any race conditions
Reiss 31-Aug-11 10:10am View
How are the images stored in the database?
Reiss 31-Aug-11 7:32am View
Absolute nonsense solution, the syntax of the try is correct - see

Reiss 17-Aug-11 7:05am View
Good explanation.
Reiss 17-Aug-11 6:54am View
If you are going to do that, I would rather it went in a finally block - less chance of missing it during a refactoring exercise.
Reiss 17-Aug-11 5:13am View
Whilst this is a useful tip in itself, isn't there a greater risk that you can accidentally ship the wrong code (I understand that there is a risk regardless of how you chose to comment/uncomment code)

When I had to do my doctoral thesis, part of the viva was explaining why you selected that topic - you will probably have to defend your choice of topic, so you need to think long and hard about it.

I agree that you have more flexability in your approach, as you can make it non-inclusive if you wish.

This article ( suggests that the execution plan is the same (I haven't tested this), so performance shouldn't be an issue either way

Better solution than mine - completely forgot about DATEDIFF
Reiss 27-Jul-11 11:42am View
I like that suggestion - maybe create a directory with the date as the name and then add files using a pure GUID.
Reiss 27-Jul-11 4:32am View
Good link - leading people to find their own solution and therefore increasing their understanding is better than just spoon feeding them the answer.

change this
else if(ddlEmployeeID.SelectedValue==".:Select Employee:.")

And we have no idea either, not unless you can add some details - what is the Message, where is coming from, how it is received etc

Have you started the Timer - this is different to just enabling it?
If yes, have you stepped through the trTick_Tick method?

SQL injection will be a threat if you allow direct text sql execution against your database

On top of this I would suggest that you read this article on creating triggers to audit changes made to the data.

can you treat your html pages as xhtml and use the same solution you use for xml files (I assume some sort of XPATH)

This will stop the form from closing in all cases and the CloseReason will only tell you UserClosing and not give any details about the whether it was invoked via the ALT-F4 key stroke combination.

A datagrid with 300,000 rows (I don't know how many columns) - even if paged for display on the screen, you would need to fetch it all for the download - this is going to take a very long time.

What do you want to do with the data once it has been exported - is it going to be fed into another system or viwed by a user?

Tagging you question will help get it answered

Please note that not everyone will understand the Indian numbering system. 3lakh is three hundred thousand.

What version of excel are you exporting to, as older versions can only contain 65,536 rows.

Should the user be able to type into the command prompt, or should only system generated commands be allowed?

This is a sql question and not a VB.NET one (The error is being thrown by the database) - you might have more success if you re-tag it.

You may want to write it as an extension method and put in your framework library.

just beat me to it ;-)

If you are going to publish code on a public forum, make sure you alter url's, connection strings etc.

I have had to use this before, as the installer had been deleted and so I couldn't uninstall the service ready for the next release.

I think what you are after is

timer_fired_event method

private void call_method_with_other_logic()
//this may or may not write to open log file
// this may or may not throw an exception
// you may want to catch some exceptions here and handle them if appropriate or let them bubble up the call stack

Glad you got it working, also kudos for working it out yourself ;-)

I would definitely recommend a full re-write as just "porting" the code would probably miss out on many of the new features/paradigms that are about now (regardless of langauge) - indeed there are probably hacks (sorry workarounds) in the original code to handle stuff like this.
