VS 2008 Reading Bytes (Little Endian/Big Endian)?

Apr 14, 2010

I need to be able to read bytes in Little Endian and in Big Endian as well. Is this possible to do in VB? I know that VB reads in Little Endian by default, but I also need to read in Big Endian.

I have tried this:

Dim i1 as Long
Dim fs As New IO.FileStream(filename, IO.FileMode.Open)
Dim br As New IO.BinaryReader(fs, System.Text.Encoding.BigEndianUnicode)

[code]....

This return the value "1616183296" when it is supposed to return "21856". I've opened the file up in Hex Workshop, and looking at it in Little Endian, I do get the value of "1616183296" and in Big Endian, I get the value of "21856".

Converting An Int To Little-endian Byte Array?

Oct 26, 2009

I'm converting a stream of bytes from a network packet into a specific struct, and vice versa. For example, when converting a short back and forth, my method looks like this:

myShort = buf(0) + (buf(1) * 256)
or the other direction:
buf(0) = myShort mod 256
buf(1) = myShort 256

When it comes to a 4 byte integer, after some experimentation I found that converting from the byte array to integer is done this way:

myInt = buf(0) + (buf(1) * 256) + buf(2) + (buf(3) * 256)

Basically adding two shorts together. I'm not quite sure to do the reverse of that, to fill the 4 bytes from myInt.

Big Endian Values Into And Outfrom System.DateTime

Jul 26, 2011

I'm working on a project that's going to be deployed via .NET on Windows and via Mono on Linux; the same data needs to be exchangeable between the platforms, including where platform A is Little-Endian and platform B is Big-Endian.Where text is concerned, I know ASCII/Unicode is natively Big-Endian, so there's no problem with that.Where numbers are concerned, I know that byte arrays have to be reversed on Big-Endian platforms to store the data in Little-Endian format.But what exactly is the 64 bit value output from System. Date Time.ToBinary?Is this a number representing the number of seconds elapsed since Jan 1 1970, is this some kind of serialized attribute that outputs some DotNET-recognizable value, or what?Does this byte array need to be handled differently in Big and Little Endian environments?It never hurts to try. In a worst case scenario, you'll learn from it.

VS 2010 Reading Bytes From File Endian?

So i have one file, that has one header that tells me if the bytes are in little or big endian format.The content of the file after the file is something like this, one byte that indicates a new "section", then several bytes until the other "section". This bytes each one represent the number of the bytes that i need to read in the second section.

Swapping Values In A Combobox?

Nov 6, 2009

I display some values in a combobox that come from an array.By default the selected index of the combobox should be the first item.

If cboAtt.Items.Count = 0 Then
For i = 0 To nums(att)
cboAtt.Items.Add(cat(att)(i))
Next

[code]....

This works perfectly, but now I want the combobox to display the new (initial) value that is swapped, except than when I do that the cboAtt_SelectedIndexChanged event is triggered which results to an infinite loop --> crash.

VS 2005 Swapping Collection Members' Positions?

This I'm almost certain is an easy problem for those with more experience than me. I just need a routine that trades the places of 2 members of a collection class.

For example: If there are 5 objects stored in a CList of() collection class, I want to swap item # 3 and #5 (or any pair of indexes), what would be the code?

This simple problem has my head spinning because once you remove a member all the indexes change.

Swapping User Controls - Closing Main Menu Screen?

Feb 19, 2010

I have a project (Written in Visual Basic, using Visual Studio 2005) which has several user controls. I have had no problem setting it up where you click a button and it load a user control, but I cannot get it to remove the control that is currently open. For example The program opens on a starts screen, which has the choices, Control1, Control2, and exit. When you click Control1 button it should open up a screen to display an inventory. It does this just fine, but it does not close the main menu screen.

Asp.net - Swapping A Connection String To Access A Test Database For Unit Testing?

Jun 22, 2009

I've set up a test database to begin unit-testing an app that I've recently been added to. It is a 3-tier design (presentation layer, BOL and DAL) and this is my first time writing unit tests. I've decided to start at the BOL and I figure the best way is to swap out the ConnectionString (which has been passed along as a Shared String) with one that points to my new test database. However, I don't wish to change any production code. I simply wish to somehow redirect the app to the test database during unit tests.

Change Byte() To Structs For Readability And Convert Struct To Byte Stream For Socket Send()

Dec 8, 2009

I just converted the following code from c# to vb.net. It is functional and works correctly with my company's firmware/devices. My next challenge.  Previous serialport code used much more readable structs which where then converted (after building a packet) into byte() automatically as part of the serialport encoding.  (this is my understanding)How could I

2.    convert into byte array for Socket.BeginSend(byte(),.....)  to stream out to remote devices?

Truncating Data Types From Int To Byte, Transferring 8 LSBs To The Byte?

May 16, 2011

Is it possible in VB to truncate a larger data type ( an int with a value greater than 255) to a smaller one, say a Byte (which only goes up to 255) in a way such that the 8LSBs of the integer are copied to the newly created byte. I have tried this using CType with the following code, however it does not work.

Dim TestByte As Byte = CType(Test, Byte)
Where the variable "Test" is an integer with a value of 419. This code always results in the Overflow exception.

Command Line Program To End Before Moving Onto The Next Command In Loop?

Feb 4, 2011

I am using a CheckedListBox that is populated with Filenames (full path, i.e. C:TestTest.jpg)When I have the files that I want in the CheckedListBox I wish to click a Start Button which will process the list one at a time using an exe program that runs on the Command Line. There are arguments that need to pass to the command line as well as the file location in order for the program to process.I currently have it working but the issue is the loop finishes quickly and it is left up to the CMD.exe to finish the process. What I would like is for the LOOP to wait until each file completes processing before passing the command for the next file in the CheckedListBox.There some reasons I wish for it to work this way.

1) I would like to have a button that can Pause/Restart the Loop.

2) I would like to have a button that can Stop the Loop so the whole process can end.

3) I would like to have the Loop remove each file one by one from the CheckedListBox after it has been processed.

4) I would like to display a Message once all the files have been processed.

5) And if it were possible I would like to report the status either by text or a progress bar showing where it is at in the process.

6) And the ability to add some error handling if possible.

Since the Loop finishes so quickly as it just passes the command to the command line using the & as a seperator it is the command line that is handling the rest of the process. Because of this there is not control over it in the GUI.The code I am using allows the Command Line text to display in the Form so it won't open up a seperate window to run CMD.exe. This is the desired affect as I would like everything to appear to run from within the Form itself.

a insert command to insert user selection data into the temporary table. What happened now is when i run the program exe, first run of the report is work fined, but not the second and the following times of execution. It will return null or blank report. The weird thing is when i execute it from development environment, it seem like the report is able to pick up user selection parameter and run the report for the first times and the subsequent execution.
