How to debug process with visual studio 2005 + aspnet_wp.exe

Some time while you are testing you need to debug some things in your asp.net application. Suppose you have run the application with ctrl + f5 and now you want to debug some things, then there are two things either you close the browser and press f5 and start debuging but if your application is heavy that will waste lots of time for your application, second way is some thing tricky but you can debug things.

We have aspnet_wp.exe(asp.net worker process) running on machine where iis and application is installed. Now suppose at present you are browsing default.aspx page and you want to debug it without pressing f5 . Then go to the your visual studio IDE -> Debug menu-> Attach Process. Select the aspnet_wp.exe process and click 'attach to process'. Now your application instance will bind with code. You can set the debug point as you do with normal debugging and it will work just as normal debugging.

So you can start debugging without wasting so much time.

Happy Programming...

What is diffrenece between string.compare and string.compareordinal

String.Compare can be or not be case-sensitive, and can incorporate anynumber of comparison options, including culture-sensitivity and sortingrules. That is, it is not comparing the exact strings necessarily, but canbe configured to do various sorts of comparisons. String.CompareOrdinalcompares the numeric values of the individual Unicode characters of thestrings. In other words, it is always case-sensitive, and neverculture-sensitive.

String.CompareOrdinal is faster (more efficient) when you don't need to do aculture-sensitive comparison, and you do want to do a case-sensitivecomparison.String.CompareTo is case-sensitive, using an Ordinal comparison, andculture-sensitive, but always uses the current culture. It is faster thanString.Compare, but less efficient than String.CompareOrdinal.

What is the diffrence between abstract(must inherit) class and inteface

Following are the main difference between abstract class and interface.

1. Abstract class can contain abstract method while interface does not.
2. Abstract class can contain method body while interface does not.
3. Methods in abstract class can contain any valid access specifier while in interface public access specifier is only allowed.
4. Abstract class can contain methods with body while interface can contain only method signature.

For VB.NET abtract class is must inherit class.

Overriding static member in child class with C#.NET,VB.NET

Static member are accessible without creating the objects of the class so you don't need to create a object for that class.

Micorosft CLR does not permit the static methods to be override in child class. But off course you can hide the static method of parent method with new keyword in child class. Here is the example of that.


public class A
{
public static virtual void Test()

}

public class B : A

How to insert a item in databound dropdownlist at nth position

Hello guys,

Sorry for not posting anything for long time. Actually i was busy about changing my job.

We have use the dropdownlist with millians of time some developer still does not know that how to insert the listitem at particular level.

Suppose your dropdownlist is having 5 items and it isbound with some datasource and you want to insert "--Select---" on the top of the order. You can do it easily with following code.

DropDownList1.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select---", "0"));

So "--Select--" will be added at the top of the dropdownlist box. You can add it at any index as you want via specifing index as first argument.

If you are using the asp.net 2.0 then it is having one property
AppendDataBoundItems set it to true and write directly a new list item in html code. It will work.

Happy Programing...

Sunday=1,
Monday=2,
Tuesday=3,
Wednesday=4,
Thursday=5,
Friday=6,
Saturday=7
}

In VB.NET...

public enum weekdays
Sunday=1,
Monday=2,
Tuesday=3,
Wednesday=4,
Thursday=5,
Friday=6,
Saturday=7,
end enum
here is the code that we can use in VB.NET

Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Diagnostics
Dim enumWeekday As weekdays
Dim i As Integer
i=2
enumWeekDay=Ctype(i,weekdays)
debug.writeline(enumWeekdays.ToString())

Same way we can write in C#.NET

using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Diagnostics;

Weekdays enumWeekDays;
int i;
i=2;
enumWeekday=(Weekdays) i;
debug.writeline(enumWeekdays.ToString());



So you can see the it greatly increase readability also saves time to write code with switch case and if else

SQL Server Joins

Sql server joins are used to combine result data from two or more tables. Often we need to display data from two tables. Where sql server joins are very useful.

There are three types of sql server joins.

1) Inner Join
2) Outer Join
3) Cross Join


1. Inner Join:
Inner join will display data based on common columns of two tables. It will find
the data from both tables based on join condition.This join take every records of left table and looks in right table based on join conditions.

2. Outer Joins:

There are there types of outer joins.

2.1 Left Outer Join
2.2 Right Outer Join
2.3 Full Outer Join

2.1 Left Outer Join:

Left outer join will display all the rows from left table of join and display data from right table based on join condition. First it will display every row of left table and looks into the right table to display data based on join condition. If matching records are found then it will display data of right table with left table data otherwise put a null values instead of right table data.


2.2 Right Outer Join:

Right outer join will display all the rows from right table of join and display data from left table based on join condition. First It will display every row of right table and looks into the left table to display data based on join condition. If matching records are found then it will display data of left table with right table data otherwise put a null value instead of left table data.


2.3 Full Outer Join:

This joins are combination of both left outer join and right outer join. First it will put data like left outer join and it will put data like right outer join. If respective records are found in opposite table then it will display data otherwise it will display null values.


3 Cross Join:

Cross join is slightly different then full outer join. It does not have join condition it is not required in cross join. It will display data like Cartesian product of the tables. For example if table 1 have 3 rows and table 2 have 7 rows. Then it will display 21 rows from both tables.

First it will select first row of table 1 and first row of table 2
then it will select first row of table 1 and second row of table 2
then it will select first row of table 1 and third row of table 2


so on it will display data.

Diffrenece Between Function and Procedure in SQL Server

Following are the main differences between sql server stored procedure and sql server user defined function.

Stored procedure does not return values but it returns a integer value indicates that stored procedure executed successfully. While user defined function in sql server must return a single value. You can not return more than one value in user defined function.

You can call user defined function in stored procedure while you can not call extended stored procedure in user defined function in sql server.

Advantages of inheritance in C#.NET,VB.NET

Following are some advantages of inheritance.

1. No need to write code from scratch. You can start coding with existing classes.
2. Through inheritance you can very easily convert small system into large systems
3. You can lots of classes with the same root but have different implementations of classes.
4. Code reusablity through inheritance increased.
5. Good at representing the objects
6. Inheritance provide a clear model structure which is easy to understand without much
complexity.
7. code are easy to manage and divided into parent and child classes.

Sealed class and abstract class in C#.NET and VB.NET

Sealed Class:

A sealed class is a class the does not allow inheritance . Means you can not inherit the sealed class . In VB.NET sealed class is represented as Non Inheritable class.

Abstract class:

Abstraction is process of identifying common patterns that have semantic variations . An abstraction represents the common patterns and provide means of variations you can use.

Abstract class methods does not have implementation. It just contain a structure.

Abstract class is equivalent to must inherit class in vb.net

Build SQL Server Stored Procedure with C#.NET

Traditionally from many year we have build sql server stored procedure with the transact sql. Microsoft framework 2.0 and sql server 2005 allows us to write stored procedure with other languages like C#.NET,VB.NET etc.

Microsoft sql server 2005 provide integrated support with .net common language run time so we can create stored procedure in C#.NET,VB.NET also. It has several advantages over using transact sql like compiled execution,security and type safety.

I have found a great articles that describes all the way to develop stored procedure with c#.net.

ASP.NET 2.0 Folders

ASP.NET 2.0 allows us to create some folders via right clicking project. But lots of people are don't know why we need to create that folder.

Here are the description for the each folder in asp.net 2.0 that we have to create for diffrent purpose.

App_Code:

App_code folder contains the code files for the classes, structures,enums etc. It also contains .wsdl files for web services. Typed data set files are also reside in this folder.Any of this item automatically available to whole application.

App_Themes

ASP.NET supports themes to enable visual styles on web page. This folder contains the themes skin and .css(Cascading Style Sheet) files.

App_Data

App_Data contains the database for a application and other data files like .mdf,xml,text and .csv files used in web application.This folder are used to stored data related entities.

App_GlobalResources

ASP.NET allows us to create resource files. There are two types of resources files one is global and another one is local. The global resources files are available to whole application. While local resouces files are available to specific page only. This folder store global resource files with .resx extensions.

App_LocalResources

This folder stored local resources files.

App_WebReferences

This folder store web reference of web service from a asp.net 2.0 application. You can web reference via right click project in solutions explorer and then click add web reference.

App_Browsers

The App_Browsers folder holds browser files, which are XML files used to describe characteristics and capabilities of these browsers

Bin

This folder contains assembly files for controls and web pages.Assembly files are basically a .dll files. Any .dll files found this folder automatically links to whole application.

This folder structure are basically supported by asp.net 2.0. You can also create your own folder structure by right click project name in solution explorer. and add new folder.

Except operator SQL Server 2005 -Find Duplicate values in multiple tables.

I have found a great way to find duplicate values with two tables in sql server. Suppose we have two tables t1 and t2 both have same fields like id,name.

And both table have following data.

T1 Data:
ID NAME
1 abc
2 xyz
3 pqr

T2 Data:
ID NAME
2 xyz

We need to find rows from table t1 which is not there in table t2.

Here is the simple way to do it.

select * from t1
except
select * from t2

Except operator return result by comparing two queries. It returns row of left query which are not in right query. So result for above queries will be as following

ID NAME
1 abc
3 pqr




NOTE:
The basic rules for combining the result sets of two queries that use EXCEPT are the following:
The number and the order of the columns must be the same in all queries.
The data types must be compatible.
