Variables inside SqlDataSource.SelectCommand

26 Feb

This way of working with sqlDatasource is very versatile a let you create a lot of handy stuff.


My Example:

I need to let the users select from two calendars control the ranges of dates they want to get from database.

Protected Sub Calendar1_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Calendar1.SelectionChanged
Dim begin_date As String = “”
begin_date = Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToString
TextBox3.Text = begin_date
End Sub

Protected Sub Calendar2_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Calendar2.SelectionChanged
Dim end_date As String = “”
end_date = Calendar2.SelectedDate.ToString
TextBox4.Text = end_date
End Sub

Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim sqlString As String = “Select [id],[x],[y], [cat_name], [zone_id], [name], [addr], [town], [phone], [webpage], [description], [town], [image_1], [fecha] From [ptg_events] where fecha between ‘” & TextBox3.Text & “‘ and ‘” & TextBox4.Text & “‘”
SqlDataSource1.SelectCommand = sqlString
SqlDataSource1.SelectCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.Text


End Sub

SqlDataSource1.SelectCommand = sqlString

Detecting a Client’s screen resolution in ASP.NET

23 Feb


Default.aspx Code:

public void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e){

if (Session[“ScreenResolution”] == null) {
// Session variable is not set
// Redirect to the screen resolution detection script
} else {
// Session variable is set
// Display it on the page
screenresolution.Text = Session[“ScreenResolution”].ToString();

detectScreen.aspx Code:

<script runat=”server” language=”C#”>

public void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e){

if (Request.QueryString[“action”] != null) {
// store the screen resolution in Session[“ScreenResolution”]
// and redirect back to default.aspx
Session[“ScreenResolution”] = Request.QueryString[“res”].ToString();
// JavaScript code below will determine the user screen resolution
// and redirect to itself with action=set QueryString parameter

<script language=”javascript”>
res = “&res=”+screen.width+”x”+screen.height+”&d=”+screen.colorDepth
