Creating A Find Button To Search A List Box?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been trying to figure out how to get my code to work. (It was a homework assignment which has already been turned in but I am determined to get this code to work.)I have a text box titled txtSearch and btnClick.I need to search a list box for a city name and then have it displayed in a message box. If there is not a match then I need to display an alternative message box stating there is no match. City is in the list box starting at 16.The text needs to be case insensitive.I am only getting the message "That is not a valid city." for any entry that I type into my txtSearch even though I know it should be a match.

Here is what I have for code

Private Sub btnFind_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnFind.Click
' Declare variables to find text on txtSearch when button clicked
Dim length As Integer = txtSearch.TextLength
Dim value As String = txtSearch.Text.ToUpper

Hotel Booking System Programme - When Booking Button Is Clicked It Can Search A Database And Find The Best Suited Room

Jun 22, 2010

I have created a hotel booking system programme. However, I am puzzled as to how when the booking button is clicked it can search a database and find the best suited room (RoomType) and make sure that it is available (Date of Departure <

This data is held in two tables (Access):
BookingID (Primary Key)
CustomerID (Foreign Key, Table:Customer)
Date of Arrival (Date)
Date of Departure (Date)
RoomID (Foreign Key,Table:Room) Room:
RoomID (Primary Key)
RoomType (Text)
RoomPrice (Currency)
Floor (Number)

This has all got to be done within a single button click. Any ideas as to how I can place this into my vb code?

I have a rough query for picking a room that is best suited:

FROM Room INNER JOIN Booking ON Room.RoomID = Booking.RoomID
WHERE Room.[Room Type] LIKE '" & Room_TypeTextbox.Text & "'"
AND Booking.[Date of Departure] < Now()

I have been trying for a while to get it to select a single matching record as there is a high chance that this query will return multiple records but im unsure on how to deal with that.

Here is my code.

Creating A Depth Search By Date?

May 7, 2010

Lets say a search engine is doing a search by date range. If we want to further expand the search by decreasing the date range by looping with date range one month close to end date how would you change the parameters?

For example if these are the date parameters:

start date = 05 / 07/ 2009
end date = 05 / 07/ 2010
050709 - 050710

Thats my set range; so now I want to change the range by month like this

050809 - 050710
050909 - 050710
051009 - 050710
051109 - 050710
051209 - 050710
050110 - 050710

How can I use a loop to set this up? the year has to change accordingly when month hits 12.

Creating A Search Control Where Searches Can Be Compounded?

Aug 25, 2009

I'm creating a search control where searches can be compounded. So, for instance, I could create a search for Orders where OrderID = 1232 or OrderID = 2343 and OrderID <> 23435

So I have a button that users can click to compound. Obviously its a complicated problem to do well, but in any case, on my path to trying to find the best way to do it, I wanted to create a variable that could be either '=' or '<>' depending on the value of some other variable set elsewhere.Is there a way to do that? Or do I have to switch to Expressions?

Where's Docked Find Search Box In VS2005

I am in the process of switching from Visual Studio 2003 to 2005. I have been unable to figure out if there is a way to replicate the "docked" Find search box like in Visual Studio 2003 which I have uploaded as an attachment or you can view it at the following link: url...It looks like in VS 2005 you always need to launch the Find dialog: url...I don't really like having to launch the Find dialog whenever I want to search for some text. Does anyone know if there is a way to mimic the docked search box?

I am able to get it to do both but when I add an item to the list, convert to a range and then convert back to a list it leaves off the last items I entered.I tried to work in a code to select all cells but I must not be putting it in the right place.This is what I have so far:

ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(xlSrcRange, Range("$A$3:$AE$7"), , xlYes).Name = _

I realize the problem is the $AE$7 (the $A$3 is correct)

Search / Find And Replace Function - NumericUpDown

Apr 6, 2011

I am writing a program and I have the Read Function all written out. I need to have the write function. I think is I copied and pasted from the Read function I wrote.

I was able to Mass edit This:
Reader.Position = (&H)
NumericUpDown281.Value = Reader.ReadInt16()
Reader.Position = (&H)
NumericUpDown280.Value = Reader.ReadInt16()
Reader.Position = (&H)
[Code] .....

And there is at least 370 NumericUpDown's. Is there any way to search/find/replace all in one instead of typing:
Find what: NumericUpDown320.Value = writer.WriteInt16()
Replace with: writer.WriteInt16(NumericUpDown320.Value)
Each individually?

The write function will only write properly this way:
writer.Position = (&H)

And not this way:
writer.Position = (&H)
NumericUpDown319.Value = writer.WriteInt16()

Im currently working in VB2005 so it seems like this was harder to do in that release.

I have a class for a point

Public Class cPoint
Public Speed As Integer
Public Alt As Integer


But that doesn't work in VB2005 much less work with more than 1 filter. I just cant seem to find a good example that works in VB2005. I could iterate through the list but its kind of big and not very efficient.

Creating A 'smartform' - Click On A Search Feature In The Top Cell And Input An Employee ID #

May 17, 2010

I created 2 forms in Access 2003 (Form1 & Form2) for the purpose of creating a 'smartform' of sorts for my company. In essence they can click on a search feature in the top cell and input an employee ID # which automatically fills in about 10 to 15 fields.

- There is only 1 table attached to the forms.

- The group I created this for is uncomfortable using Access.

What I would like to do with

- I thought I would create an internal webpage using so they wouldn't need to log into Access [the DB would be stored on a separate server.]

- I would need a clean & simple interface that has 2 buttons, one for each form.

-When the form is called up I would need a search feature "EMPLID _________" which would connect to the Access DB table and retrieve the correct information.

-Id also need to have the form printable & have the ability to search again or return to the front page.
