I'm trying to ensure that all characters which are not numeric, or alphabetic are converted to HTML code when submitted to my database.
This successfully converts anything to HTML, but now I need to put some condition in there so it only does it where I need it to. ie; on any character which will either screw up my database entry, or screw up formatting when returned back to the screen as HTML (this database content is for product data for a website).
So for simplicity, I guess I want to convert only charcters which are not A-Z alphabetic or 1-0 numeric.
I could use isNumeric, but not sure how to detect alphabetic characters.
I've been Googling and found something which looked like it would work, but the logic/filtering was wrong.
Whats the best way to include the Currency Symbol, without affecting arithmetic operations for example. Lets say I have a Listview which has one column named "Cost" where ill be a Currency Value which needs to carry the symbol for example "BsF. 22,34" or "$. 22,34". Lets say I need to apply aritmetics with those values after whats the best way to store em or at least ignore the symbol when using arithmetic on them?
My chemistry calculations program, written in Visual Studio 2008, VB.Net (Win XP), gives completely wrong results when a Comma is used as Decimal Symbol.The calculations are only correct with a Dot (.) as Decimal Symbol.How can I make the calculation results independent of the Decimal Symbol? (Dot or Comma)?(For example Excel calculates correctly with a Dot or Comma as Decimal Symbol)I have found an old thread adressing the same problem, but no simple and easy solution was given.
I have a string of text being sent through a serial port to a text box (Text1.Text). The string has some symbols in in which I am assuming are Hex values. The hex values are Hex(1), Hex(4), Hex(12), and Hex(17). What I need to do is find the position of these hex symbols in the string of text so that I can split or grab the data after the specific hex symbol. I am not able to use substring or indexof or instr ... or at least I am not using it correctly to find the appropriate symbol.I was thinking if I need to iterate through the string character by character and grab each symbol or text and get their value??? If it is one of the hex symbols, then get the index number (or position).
Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click Dim Response As Integer ' Displays a message box with the yes and no options.

I have lines of text that contain "degree symbols" (ASCII(248)). I want to replace those symbols with an alphabet character (Z).I am changing the line of text into a charArray,iterating through one character at a time. How do I define the ASCII(248) in code to replace each occurence with a Z? Something like string.Replace(ASCII(248), "Z") would be nice, but that doesn't seem to work too well.
I have taken over support of an application at the company I work for. All of a sudden, the customer wants to be able to enter a registered trademark in a name field. The symbol, using ALT+0174, is being saved correctly, but the app is not encoding it properly. Essentially this is what I'm doing:
Private Sub btnSave_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click Dim ms As New MemoryStream
Everything is fine, except the "??" after "Smith" should be "«". What is the best way, if any, to display the symbol correctly?
I am trying to export some data from a SQL Express table to Access using VB.net. The data is correctly displayed in SQL as, for example, temperature with the small degree object and the letters F or C for Farenhiet or Celsius. The character is of course represented by ░ = "°" in html code, which is what appears in my access tables.
How can I get the insert statements to correctly pass this symbol? I have thousands of records and this applies to maybe a hundred or so in each of a few hundred DB's I am running this conversion on.I read the data from a Gridview an .aspx .net web page and then use an insert query with an Access OLEDB connection.
I have a .net application running on a symbol mc75 (motorola) using the scanner. I am now trying to add functionality for the camera and I am running into issues.
To find the 'devices' you are supposed to use the library's 'available devices' function.
With the barcode it is symbol.barcode.devices.availabledevices and it returns two items (you can scan from the scanner or using the camera device) However, when I do the camera library it does not find any devices - symbol.imaging.devices.availabledevices returns 0
I can take a picture using the software on the mc75, so I know the functionality is there, I just can't figure out how to get to it programmatically..

Need to get this done: To have just ONE cell that is defined in a dropdown list with several (various) countries´┐Ż currencies, and each time when I choose a currency on this dropdown, EVERY cell in my worksheet which has a figure formatted with CURRENCY will automatically turn into that currency selected only in that dropdown cell. I have imagined whether if there was a solution, that the monetary cells do not necessarily have to be first in CURRENCY format, or do they have to? Anyway, I do nt know how to accomplish this, Without the solution, I have still at this time just set all the cells with monetary amounts in simple NUMBER format, ie. no CURRENCY SYMBOL at all, till I find a solution ..
I'm trying to display the square root symbol on a button in a windows form. I'm using the unicode U+221A which on windows character map is the root sign. When i enter this in visual basic ensure the font is the same as that in the character map (wasn't sure if that made a difference to the unicode) my button displays the eta sign instead. Any help greatly received.
This is the code i'm using to set my unicode the the buttons text property.
I want to disallow changes to two comboboxes unless the user first clicks a LOCK symbol on the screen. I pop a Y or N into the tag of the picture box when they click it...I've got this - combobox is called LanguageTo
Private Sub LanguageTo_Enter(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles LanguageTo.Enter If Me.languageLock.Tag.ToString = "Y" Then MessageBox.Show("Click LOCK symbol to allow changes to the Language Pair!", "Language is Locked!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation)
How do I "cancel" the attempt to change that combobox?I don't want to ENABLE=FALSE the combobox - as I don't want it's image to visually change. I want to allow them to attempt the change and then abort it if they didn't unlock first.

Hi, I'm just beginning to teach myself how to do OOP in VB 2008 Express. I have a quick question after seeing a video online.Is a VB variable the equivalent of an 'instance' in Flash and a VB object like a 'symbol' in Flash? Is this what it means by a variable being a reference or pointer to an object and not the object itself?
