String.equals() And Apostrophe - Execution Code ?

Oct 27, 2010

I just ran into what I consider a very strange issue in the execution of some code that I thought I had completely well-understood.

Basically, I was using this kind of notation:

If strOne.equals(strTwo) Then

rather than

If strOne = strTwo Then

I came from a c and java background, and using the '=' operator for comparison has always made me cringe, so I've used the .equals() comparison function thinking that it was equivalent. But just now some of my code broke. It encountered a string containing "Eagle's Nest: Dawn Patrol", used the .equals() to compare it to "Eagle's Nest: Dawn Patrol" and declared them not equal. I changed the code to use '=' rather than '.equals()' and it declared them equal. I also did this:

If strOne.Replace("'", "").Equals(strTwo.Replace("'", "")) Then

And again, it declared them equal.

This has me a little rattled because my code is filled with the use of .equals(), and I've used it assuming that it was no different than writing strOne = strTwo. I've scanned the interweb looking for information about this. I have not found any information about odd interactions between the apostrophe (or other) character(s) and .equals(). Microsoft's documentation does not hint at any subtle differences. how .equals() differs from '='

Change This Checksum Function To Accept An Integer Input Instead Of A String?

Dec 31, 2009

This function doesn't work if I change the input argument 'pdu' from a string to an int.Would someone please help me figure out what to do here so that the checksum does not add the ascii value of the int argument but rather the actual integer value?I took out a few lines of the actual function but it adds the input argument to a packet sent out via TCP protocol.This function shows the integer value just fine in the string that gets encoded as a byte array.  the checksum is wrong.!

''Public Function buildpacket(pdu As Integer) is what I want.
Public Function buildpacket(pdu As String)
Dim packet As String

Get The Snippet To Accept My Entries And Unsnippetize Itself Into Inserted Code?

Been using C# and code snippets and fill 'em in and hit "Enter" and POOF there you go, all done.

So how the heck do I do this in VB?  Example: "property" TAB TAB brings up the snippet. I fill it in just fine .. NOW WHAT?  Hitting enter just give me a new line. ESC doesn't do anything.  CTLR-K CTRLX doesn't either.

What's the secret? How do I get the snippet to accept my entries and unsnippetize itself into inserted code?

Setup DataTableAdapters To Allow For Easy Code Change When Change Server Names?

Feb 20, 2012

I'm getting familiar now with using the Dataset Designer and how it makes for quick and easy updates and query of tables. I use to use the OleDB commands and leave the Connection String as a Global Constant so I can easily change it if the server name changes, or if we have to re-direct the .NET  to another instance of the database. 

But now that I use the Dataset designer I'm concerned that I maintain flexibility and support in the long run. how the Dataset designer works and where it stores it's connection string info? And how difficult that would be to update. It looks like I modify the App.config file, but I'm unfamiliar with this.

What am I getting myself into? It looks like a standard XML file. Is that it?

Javascript - Encoding String For Apostrophe In

Sep 20, 2011

I am having a problem trying to resolve an apostrophe related issue. I have searched SO,

My clientside javascript code is: var strUserText = uSettings.replace(/'/g, "&apos;")

after the above line is executed, the form does a submit

document.form1.submit(); in code behind, a class retreives those values:

sUserSettings = request.form("strUserSettings ") the result is a semi-truncated string.Given the above code process flow, how can I save "John O'Brady's ASP Blog" in to a database?

I thought I was saving "John O'Brady's ASP Blog" but that isn't working.

SelectedIndex On The Cmbactiveproj Is Blank When An Apostrophe Is Used ?

Aug 16, 2010

I have a form which has a combobox (cmbactiveproj) and a textbox (txtProjnameupdt). By selecting any value on the combobox the textbox changes accordingly. The user has an option to change the txtProjnameupdt.text and save.

Note: the text stored in txtProjnameupdt is part of the value in the combobox.Then I refresh the combobox by calling the datasource;


This reflects and changes that have been made i.e., the combobox gets refreshed.and the change made can be seen on the combobox, and selected by the code below.

cmbactiveproj.SelectedIndex = cmbactiveproj.FindStringExact(txtprojnameupdt.Text)

But when the user inserts an 'apostrophe' in the txtprojnameupdt.Text and save. It all works fine... But the selectedindex on the cmbactiveproj is BLANK.It ONLY happens when an apostrophe is used if I dont use an apostrophe it works fine..

VS 2010 - Apostrophe In Database String

Feb 6, 2012

Am just wondering if I'm doing something the long way round, so I thought I'd bounce it off the forum for opinion. I'm using the following code to write the contents of three text boxes into a table in an access database. [Code]

During testing I noticed that when an ' (apostrophe in words like can't) was used in the text boxes it would cause the app to halt. Figured that it was due to the ' being interpreted as a command so I could replace all of the ' in the text with a "unique" character before writing it to the database, so then when it is read back I could re-replace the "unique" character with the ' so the user sees what they have entered.

My question: is there a more efficient way of handling this ?

Ilter Fields In A Table That Contain Percent (%) And Apostrophe (') Characters

Feb 11, 2009

I am trying to filter fields in a table that contain percent (%) and apostrophe (') characters. I kow that to filter an apostrophe you need to add another apostrophe (''). However, when a text contains the percent (%) character in combination with an apostrophe (') character, an exception is thrown. Also, when using the % character in a filter string, it will be function as an "*" (fields starting or ending with). I need the % to be considered as a character whenever the % makes part of a string in the field. How can I address these issues? [code]

Sql - Unable To Escape Apostrophe/special Characters In Parametrized Query

Nov 30, 2011

The data was being read from a Gridview which had the html encoding. The solution was the following...

Dim Sht_Text As String = HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(row.Cells.Item(0).Text)

I am trying to prevent from having to escape apostrophes and other special characters in my string variables by using a parameterized query with an OleDbConnection. I have all of the parameters in the same order, the insert is working, it just does not maintain the characters. I keep getting those pesky html codes. I am trying to insert into an Access db from a web pages. As I mentioned, its working, just not the special characters.

Here's the code:

Dim pConn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection pConn = New OleDbConnection(cb.ConnectionString)
Dim SqlString As String = "INSERT INTO Strings (Mlt_String_ID, Lng_ID, Strg_Name, Sht_Text, Lng_Text, Alt_Text) Values (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)"


jp and en records already existed, the insert of fr record pushes the html codes for the small circle which represents the degree symbol. Happens for all other special characters as well.
