searching a directory for a file, and if it doesn't find that file to search again for a similar file and notify the user that a image does exist but for a different revision.
Dim photostr As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr2 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr3 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr4 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
This code snippet is used in a program called SyteLine, so some of it may be unfamiliar, but its .net based. The item and revision are fed through from the form, so when the string gets built it might look something like this "R:itemphotosp_22554_B_01.jpg" with "22554" being the item, "B" being the revision, and "01" being the image number. So what I want is if it cannot find a file name with revision B in it, to search for a filename with any revision it it "R:itemphotosp_22554_*_01.jpg", if it finds one to display a message that a non-current photo exists, and if it can't find that, to display a message saying there is no photo.
I want a string search/compare with wildcard. I'm trying to create a "crypto crossword" application and got most of the code working but the wildcard thing was harder than I thought.
Basically I want the program to compare if "H**LO" is equal to "HELLO" (true). But "HE*" is NOT equal to "HELLO". I tried with regex but the number of wildcard is different each time and in different places so I never managed to make it work.
I am having difficulty with searching on a Dataridview. I want the user to be able to enter a characters into a textbox and as they enter them the Datagridview will reduce down base on the name that is being typed in.So for example the user types: Smthis will show all the Smith and all the Smarts etc.So to do this user the Textbox change event. This I think works ok. The problem I have is getting it to filter on that data.
I have a dataset: HTML SELECT CompanyID, CompanyName, Address1, Address2, Address3, Town, County, Country,
I have an application that has a list of string that needs to be search in a database table field to select rows with the same name and retrive the values of one particular fields that contains the file name with extention for that string. With this new generated text file, I pass the filename with the extension and search the folders that are listed in a txt file. All of this works fine.
Now I need a more simple version of this application, without using the database to get the filename with extension. Instead, read the text file with input strings, search in the folders listed in another text file(to know the location of the folders to search for the string). If any file that matches with the string in the text file, I need to copy those files to another folder.
Quick query...I'm trying to scan a long string and return any values that occur between the tags <FileName> and </FileName> I've got a bit of code here to use regular expressions to return the position of the occurunces of both substrings..Just wanted to find out if there is any way to scan for both substrings within one loop (as im currently doing 2, one for the first substring and one for the 2nd) so I can use something along these lines:
How would I do that? Sample code is below that demonstrated that the file I opened contained the full path and file name.
I want to extract just the path and serialize that to the user.config file as a UserSetting value. Then next time the user opens the dialog box, it uses that saved path string to go immediately to the location previously used.
If openFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then Properties.Settings.Default.persistConnectionType = openFileDialog1.FileName Properties.Settings.Default.Save();
I have a Listview on my form with different files. I can selet a file en open it with the proces start method. To open the file i use the OpenFileDialog method and select the filename. This work very good. With the code below.
My question is if there is a method to get the selected file without using the OpenFileDialog Box. So when i dubbelclick the selected file the proces will start with open the selected file. Something like:
proc.StartInfo.FileName = Me.SelectedCell.FileName instead of proc.StartInfo.FileName = Me.OpenFileDialog1.FileName
PS) May be i can preduce the Filename using the OpenFileDialog method on the background.
Private Sub ListView1_MouseDoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ListView1.MouseDoubleClick If Me.OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
I've been having problems extracting the value of a Regex in a String. I have a string with several regex expressions and I need to get the value of each expression's match. The thing is though, it's not returning the last match correctly. For example:
Regex Pattern: I play (S+.*?) and (S+.*?)
String: I play the guitar and the bass The program is returning the value of the first expression as "the guitar" but it's returning the value of the second expression as "the" instead of "the bass".
I'm trying to use the bindingsource.find method to match a datarow column with a user entered text. I know that using BindingSource1.find("columnName", searchString) will work when the user enters the exact string. What I would like to know is how to find a row that is close to the string using a wildcard search... a good example I guess is:dim searchString as string = textbox1.text 'lets say the user enter "se"dim index as integer = myBindingSource.find("columnName", searchString) 'I would like to find the firs record that starts with "se"I can achieve the idea using the bindingsource.filter method but this will interfere with other parts of my application if the bindingsource is changed.
How can I use wildcard/s for the attachment filename. Part of the filename changes but the characters 8 and 9 (counting from the left to right) always present and always either LK or KL. Currently files are PDF type, thus with extension PDF but might be different in the future (this is not important now).
Here it is: Dim oAttch As Net.Mail.Attachment = New Net.Mail.Attachment("C: est102309LKO.pdf")
As you can see in the picture I send my wildcard parameters to my query if the "textbox" does'nt have any content. But when the query require INT, and not STRING, I don't really know what to do.Is there another kind of wildcard when it's INT?
I'm trying to query a Datable. I can do this just fine: [code] gives me an error: "Error in Like operator: the string pattern 'a*e' is invalid.". Why can't I have the wildcard in the middle? I want to find values that start with something specific & end with something specific & I dont care what's in between.
New user here. I've been searching high and low for what I would think is a relatively simple task. I want to rename a file with a wildcard (i.e. FileNamexxx.xls) within a Visual Basic Script. I'll be running this script within Visual Studio.
I will only have 1 file in this folder, so I do not believe a loop is necessary. Actual FileName is "CellModelHistory1251234.xls"

I'm importing a .csv file into my SQL Server (2005) using SSIS on a schedule, after its imported I would like to change the name of the file. The name of the imported file is always different as its coming from an external source.Is there anyway of changing the table name?
I've looked at using the stored procedure sp_rename, i.e.
Code: USE TESTDATABASE1 GO EXEC sp_rename 'dbo.SalesTerr5673A1889', 'Values'; GO
I am making a project for school with visual basic and its a mcdonalds ordering system.There are 50+ buttons which you can press to remove an item and my code works fine. only problem is it is waaaaayyyy to long and can be shortened with a wildcard. Does anyone know what a good way to put a wildcard in the following code would be:
Private Sub btnsmallfries_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnsmallfries.Click If Label2.Text = "Buy Mode" Then
I have created a Web Setup project using VS 2008. I have created a custom action to programatically add a wildcard scriptmap for my virtual directory. The app installs fine, but, during custom action, fails to add scriptmap. I've tried this on Win 2003 server with IIS 6.0 and WinXP with IIS 5.1.[code]....
I am working on an application in vb.net to move files back and forth between a client and a ftp server. We will be creating, deleting, and renaming temporary files during our update process.I want to check for the existence of a temp file before I begin an upload process to keep different users from trying to update the same file at the same time. I have a method (below) to check if the FTP file exists (using ContentLength), but I want to be able to pass in a string with a wildcard such as:
FileServer.FtpFileExists("MyTestFile.*.txt") Can I use a wild card with a FtpWebRequest object? What about a regular expression? Or should I pull down the directory(between 200-500 files) and iterate through that list on the client side trying to match with a regex/widcard? 'Find if File exists from FTP Server for File specified Private Function FtpFileExists(ByVal RemotePath
I have a form which takes input from the user in a TextBox to display ("contains") record/data on a grid. However, I am unable to achieve the input data thing. I have been trying to solve this for a while now. Dtatbase is MS Access.
Here is my code: I don't get any values in the form grid whatsoever for this query.
Im working on a project that includes a TableAdapter for filling data. I usually use parameters for queries I create, but what would be the best way to create a query that may have a wildcard without creating a bunch of queries?
In VB6 I could use an asterisk as a wildcard when searching the object browser. For instance, searching on "c*Report" would find "cFooReport" and "cReport". I can't seem to do the same in VS2008, am I just missing something obvious?
In my setup and deployment project, I have made all the directories I needed. The problem I have is: With the registry keys, how do I enter the value field with a wildcard for the location to the new installation. People don't always use the default location, so I need my key to dynamically set the registry to the correct place. So what do I do? [ProgramLocation] or something?
