## Evaluating Mathematical Expression In A String?

Jul 7, 2011

Is there a method that allows me to evaluate a mathematical expression in a string? Example (Not actual Code):

Input = "2+2"
Output = SomeMethod(Input)
Output = 4

Update: Nevermind, I found a way around it by using DataTable.Compute.

## How To Make A Program In Which The User Can Input A Mathematical Function

Mar 29, 2009

i want to make a program in which the user can input a mathematical function so the program can then work with it. So the user would input something like x^4+x+2 and then an x and the program would calculate f(x). What i don't know is how to let the user input the function.

## What Data Type Will Allow The User To Input 0 And Allow The Mathematical Functions To Work Properly

Mar 29, 2011

I am currently using double data types. The problem I am encountering is that sometimes the user will have to input a value of 0 in the required text box and this creates an error. My question is what data type will allow the user to input 0 and allow the mathematical functions to work properly. Decimals maybe?

## VS 2008 CodeDom - Create A Procedure Which Will Evaluate A String Expression As If It Were A Line Of Code

Oct 12, 2009

I am trying to create a procedure which will evaluate a string expression as if it were a line of code...Kind of like what a graphing calculator does when you enter a formula. Does anyone have any experience with this in VB? I have an example of C++ code which uses CodeDom, but I am a bit rusty with my C++!

## Asp.net - Unable To Evaluate Expression

Apr 24, 2012

I am using a class to check for certain words in my application to prevent SQL Injection. In the class, there is a for loop that tries to match a specific word with the words from a blacklist. If there is a match, I must redirect to the system's error page. However, when a match is found and I try to redirect, I keep getting the error "Unable to evaluate expression."

## Can't Parse - Unable To Evaluate Expression

Feb 10, 2009

I have this line in some

Integer.TryParse(ThisRow.Item("DatumID").ToString, n)

ThisRow is a datarow. The "DatumID" in this case happens to be an empty string, but is not Null. When I break on this line, and try to evaluate it by highlighting it and pressing Shift+F9, I get the message "Unable to evaluate expression". Interestingly, it is actually evaluating correctly (since the item holds an empty string, TryParse returns False).

I have tested this in every way I could think of (mostly I thought I had left out a parenthesis in my expression, but that wasn't true). So why won't that expression evaluate when tested, even though it is actually working correctly?

## In What Circumstances Will The Following Boolean Expression Evaluate To True

## VS 2010 Unable To Evaluate Expression/variables?

Oct 24, 2011

I have one test class which having few variables declared in the header of the class where it will be accessed for all the subroutines and functions in the class. Here's the sample of my declaration:

Private m_dblMaxPwrLimit As Double
Private m_dblMaxPower As Double
Private m_intHalfPwrIndex As Short
Private m_intMaxPwrIndex As Short

After that, I have one Private Function which need to access some of the variables declare in above. Part of my function is show as below:

Private Function GetPmaxIndex(ByVal Serial As Short) As Boolean
Dim i As Short
Dim Total As Short

[code]....

The problem is when I step into the line of m_dblMaxPower and m_intMaxPwrIndex, I can't see the value of these variables which is suppose I can see it as in VB6. Additionally, when I put Add Watch for these variables, it showed 'unable to evaluate expression'. I guess it is not being used and I think something is wrong with my declaration but I do not how should I declare it corretly because as for VB6, we can declare all the variables in the header of the class and we can use it for all the subroutine/function within the class.

## Cannot Evaluate Expression Because Code Of Current Method Is Optimized

Oct 15, 2008

In debug mode I get into a line that evaluates to false because the expression cannot be evaluated because of "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of the current method is optimized." Program does not assert or error out. If Item.Length then . . . (Here when I hover the mouse it displays "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of the current method is optimized"). What interesting is that it only occurs in one of .vb files.BTW, I'm programming in Compact Framework.

## Building A String With User Input Across 4 Forms?

But it's not working?

## How To Avoid "Unable To Evaluate Expression"

May 22, 2012

Dim MyString as String = "Various very long strings, 1000 of lines. Here \n \n \n to <TR> here."
Dim MyMatch As MatchCollection
MyMatch = Regex.Matches(MyString, "Here((.|\n|\r)*?)<\/TR>", RegexOptions.Multiline)
Dim MyArray(MyMatch.Count - 1)

This code stalls. I was trying to find out why my app stalls, and never breaks, or reports an error. I found out, that it stalls in the last line of code, where Count in MyMatch sometimes is not numeric. It has various error values, such as: "Unable to evaluate expression", "Evaluation of expression or statement timed out", and similar.I was trying to find solution, searching the internet, but no success. On MSDN site, there are 2 simple advice: a.) Verify that the entered code is correct. b.) Simplify your expression so that it takes less time to execute.My code is correct. It works on some strings, and stalls on other. I couldn't simplify it more, because strings to test with matches are different every time. They differ in length, and also in content

## DataColumn.Expression: How To Use A User Defined Function In Expression

## Text Box For User Input And Allow To Separate Conditions To Dictate Whether Literal Is Added To String

Jun 22, 2010

My app has text boxes to accept input from user to questions shown on labels. When the user input is valid, a literal is added to a string incorporating the user input. If the user doesn't input anything or if user inputs "no" or "None" I want the literal and the user input to not add to my string. Make any sense? See my code below:

## Using String Properties/methods To Evaluate A Number?

May 4, 2012

I have one text box that the user enters an integer into. I use a select case to determine what the length of the number is. (along w/ string.length, etc)based on how long it is, I can determine if the number is 1-9, 10-99, 100-999, etc. What I want to do next is, evaluate the number and display a roman numeral that matches.

intMyNumber.substring(1,?) ' 1 would return the leftmost number
if intMyNumber.substring(1,?) = 1 then
if intMyNumber.substring(2,?) = 1 then 'etc

## Unit Testing - Use Assert.AreEqual To Evaluate If String Is Greater Than A Certain Length

Feb 1, 2011

I'm wondering how to evaluate an expression using the assert object. The idea is to check if a string is longer then what is minimally acceptable. For example, Assert.AreEqual(stringName.length, >5). I know this method doesn't work but the concept is what I'm trying to get across. Is there a way to test this?

## Backslash Character In String Causes String To Evaluate As "nothing" In WCF?

May 24, 2011

I have a WCF application, written in VB.NET that takes a generic Dictionary(Of String, String) as one of the parameters.When I pass in a Key/Value pair that has a backslash as one of the characters in the value, the client automatically changes the entire value to Nothing or in the XML it shows this:

<Value i:nil="true />

Is there some special way to escape backslashes when passing them in a string to a WCF service? As far as I know the backslash isn't a reserved character in XML.

I cannot figure out how to incorporate the number of days into the input box then get it to loop and count the number of times the User inputs in the number of days. Then I have to incorporate it into the equation to get the total distance D = MPH * Hours. What I have right now wil not count up the number of days and locks up after I input one number and will not add anything to the listbox. Because I also have to make sure that they cant add nonnumaric values and the number of hours per day cannot exceed 20. I have put things in and taken them out but it has been 2 days and I am lost now

I am creating a form for work where managers can report when they find a customer's personal information laying around on a desk (we work at a call center where agents answer calls for a wireless cell phone provider, so we take personal information security very seriously). Anyway, I am wondering if there is a way to have a text box autofill with that manager's windows username (since they will need to be logged into their own profile to use the form).

## User Input - Tje User Can Type In Data To Such A Parts QTY Cost

Mar 11, 2010

I need something tje user can type in data to such a parts QTY cost etc. There are no predefined parts list so the user can enter any part name/Number and there is no limit to amount of parts that can be entered.

Does anyone have any idea what might be useful. It was thinks of a listview bu i can't see that you can type into that. I cant use comboboxs because there are no predefined list and i know there is some way to generate text at runtime (i think) but i don't know how to do it and i would prefer a clearer approach.

## Application Settings - Regular Expression - Customizable By The User

Oct 11, 2010

I have a little question about application settings. I have a regular expression in my code which should be customizable by the user so I made an application setting for it.  The regular expression is used in a class in the project and has the following value

Dim email_regularex As String

So now I made a new Settings file in my project and gave the following value for this string in the settings file: ^([w-]+(?:.[w-]+)*)@((?:[w-]+.)*w[w-]{0,66}).([a-z]{2,6}(?:.[a-z]{2})?)\$ [URL]

So when i do this in Visual Studio 2008, Visual Studio automatically creates a app.config xml file with the right settings in it. But when I start my application and use the regular expression like this:

Dim

myMatch As

Match = Regex.Match(email, email_regularex)
