Searching A Set Of Data With Multiple Terms Using Linq?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm in the process of moving from ADO.NET to Linq. The application is a directory search program to look people up. The users are allowed to type the search criteria into a single textbox. They can separate each term with a space, or wrap a phrase in quotes such as "park place" to indicate that it is one term.

Behind the scenes the data comes from a XML file that has about 90,000 records in it and is about 65 megs. I load the data into a DataTable and then use the .Select method with a SQL query to perform the searches. The query I pass is built from the search terms the user passed. I split the string from the textbox into an array using a regular expression that will split everything into a separate element that has a space in it. However if there are quotes around a phrase, that becomes it's own element in the array. I then end up with a single dimension array with x number of elements, which I iterate over to build a long query.

I then build the search expression below:

query = query & _
"((userid LIKE '" & tempstr & "%') OR " & _
"(nickname LIKE '" & tempstr & "%') OR " & _

.net - LINQ To SQL: Using Multiple Data Contexts Easily With An Interface

Feb 17, 2012

I have a program that is accessing many similar tables using a linq to sql datacontext. Do linq to sql tables implement a common interface? I would like to write methods that could work with any of the similar tables, so it would be great to do something like

Dim myTable as ILinqDataTable
If switch = "TableA" then myTable=myDataContext.TableA Else myTable=myDataContext.TableB

Searching Multiple Files In Multiple Sub-folders

Mar 30, 2010

I'm developing an application to help law enforcement retrieve and analyze logs and other files left by the use of Pidgin (a multi-protocol messenger client). Right now I'm nearly done, but I want to add the ability to search chat logs for user-defined words or phrases and I don't even know where to begin.

Chat logs are stored as html documents in a folder/sub-folder/sub-folder/sub-folder fashion, where each sub-folder can have dozens of sub-folders inside of it, and the final sub-folder can have dozens if not hundreds of chat logs. If anybody could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

(Also, this is the first program I've written since about 2005, and I'm essentially teaching myself VB as I go. If you'd like to see what I've cobbled together so far, you can find the program here.)

String Searching In Linq To Entity Framework?

Mar 2, 2010

I am wanting to create a Where statement within my Linq statement, but have hit a bit of a stumbling block.I would like to split a string value, and then search using each array item in the Where clause.In my normal Sql statement I would simply loop through the string array, and build up there Where clause then either pass this to a stored procedure, or just execute the sql string. But am not sure how to do this with Linq to Entity? ( From o In db.TableName Where o.Field LIKE Stringvalue Select o ).ToList()

Code Searching - No Control Over Multiple Uses

Mar 25, 2009

Though I know your site ask for some effort on my part im not exactly sure where to start.. I know how to code some decent things and such but recently I wanted to make a serial code system.. What Im looking for is to have a list of Serials on my website (possibly through MySQL? Or something simpler Not sure on this either) I know about the obvious

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
If TextBox1.Text = "BLAH123" Then
MsgBox("Valid Registration key. Thank you")


But I do not like this system as I have no control over multiple uses. I want to pull the keys from my website (hell through a notepad if its easier) therefore allowing me to delete and add serial keys as needed..

I do not know if it is possible to implement this problem in VBA or it must be done with VB. Net using Visual Studio.

Problem: Excel has its search function and it is a pain if there many value available or you must find a value that far away from column A.

I would like to have something like this

Searching Data In An Access Database?

Apr 28, 2011

I know how to search for one specific number from a single line in an access database using a query, but now I have to search through a whole database and display each instance. Ex) I search the number "1" in column "1" of the database and it has "2" instances. So now I have to take the corresponding data in the rows next to it in order to display them in the label.

search: "1", both results are ID = "1"

dates amount
10/13/2009 $43.00
12/25/2009 $86.00

I know how to put the results for "1" line of a database into the .item field, but im confused on how to search multiple lines of a database and store multiple items. Heres what I have so far...

VS 2005 : Searching Data Table?

Nov 3, 2009

I am having to create a data adapter to pull data into a dataset, then loop through that dataset in order to add information into a new column from a separate data source. My first data source is access. My second data source is oracle. Here is the code I have to do this, which works well when I show it in a grid.

Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT tblSummary.WorkOrderNumber, tblLabor.Crew, tblLabor.NumberOfMechanics, tblLabor.NumberOfHoursPerMechanic, tblTasks.TaskNumber, tblTasks.TaskDescription FROM (tblLabor tblLabor INNER JOIN tblTasks tblTasks ON tblLabor.TaskID=tblTasks.TaskID) INNER JOIN tblSummary tblSummary ON tblTasks.JobPlanNumber=tblSummary.JobPlanNumber WHERE


how I can search through this data table. For instance, I want to see only rows that are in this data table that have "Replace" somewhere in the "Description" field, which is the field I added from my second data source. How do I do this? Is there an easier way to do all this instead of filling my dataset from the first source and then adding columns from the second source by looping?

Develop A Program Structure In Very Broad Terms

Jan 22, 2009

I'm trying to develop a program structure in very broad terms. At this point, the Forms used do nothing but call other Forms and allow for their closure. After startup and initialization activities, I want the user to set up options and run the program. The program can be run again (click one button) and again with the same options, or (click another), the options can be changed for the next and subsequent runs. Clicking a third button will cause shutdown activities to be performed.

Sounds pretty simple. However, I get the options form the first time, but subsequent ShowDialog calls cause the form to pop up (I detected a Load and an Activated call) for an instant, then disappear, and the program rolls on without permitting option selection, even though the key variable NewSetup is definitely True.

Public Class RunMain
<STAThread()> _

Distance Between Two Points On An Image In Terms Of Pixels?

Jun 1, 2012

I'm using Visual Basic 2006 and i'm a newbie so excuse me if my question is not complete. I basically have a picturebox, in which i am displaying an image from a webcam. Now the user clicks on two points on the image and i need to get the distance between the two points in terms of the number of pixels. I did think of and try the pythagorean theorem, but i'm confused as to what units the answer turns out in. Is it in terms of inches? or pixels? Do i need to set the Scale Mode propety to pixels to get it in pixels? And if so, is there a way to get the number of pixels per inch? Sorry for asking so many questions but i've been reading other forums and i'm confused!
