Validation Using Regular Expressions?

Jun 24, 2011

I'm trying to do is some password validation. It needs to have at least 1 lower case character, 1 uppercase character, 1 number and at least 6 characters in length. I figured I could do this using "RegularExpressions" however I can't figure out how to determine the "at least one occurance" of each. For example I thought the following would work but it only validates that what is input is a lower case, uppser case or numeric character, not that the input has at least one of each. The user should be able to enter any characters but at least one of lower case, upper case and numeric characters.

I was just wondering if there are any examples around the internet on how to develop a simple CAD program.

Input / Output Methods And Validation (for Secure Coding) - Read/Write DB Encryption ?

May 16, 2011

I've been trolling for a long time now and have decided to register as I finally have some time to start jumping into VB. The last time I coded VB, the current version was VB 4. I've been out of programming for a good while now and considered myself a beginner (tutorial example coder haha).

My question is: Where is a good place to start learning VB.NET?

I know it's an often asked and answered question - but let me give you a bit more information so more specialized replies might be given.

I'm in INFOSEC/COMSEC and would like to (eventually) develop a program that contains a DB of information that is read by the application and saves input information into a DB (encrypted) as well. The program will be a 800-53 C&A control assessment program; used for tracking system compliance for federal information systems. I would like to be able to develop such a tool to make my life easier at work instead of using Excel spreadsheets to track everything.

I would like to learn:
- Input / Output methods and validation (for secure coding)
- Read/Write DB Encryption (RSA or other 128-bit) for user input information
- Ability to generate PDF reports from the primary keys and data sets from the above DB

My goal is to create a program that allows a user to install the program, setup a 'master' account that a serial/key has been generated for - that master account is then allowed to create new projects (progress saved in DB). A project asks the user certain questions pertaining to information systems and takes the input and saves it into the DB (encrypted). When the assessment is completed, I would like the program to be able to generate a PDF report from the DB (from a layout template I created).

Write A Simple Expression-like Class In .NET 2.0?

Jul 7, 2010

I'm currently working in .NET 2.0 Visual Basic. The current project is an Active Directory Wrapper class library within which I have a Searcher(Of T) generic class that I wish to use to search the underlying directory for objects.


In short, I want to offer some kind of Expression feature to my users, unless it is too much work, as this project is not the most important one and I don't have like 2 years to develop it. I think that the better thing I should do is to write something like CustomExpression that could be passed in parameters to some functions or subs.

Simple Read/Write App.config Configuration File

Feb 6, 2010

I have a program with various settings, all stored in the app.config file. Often, I have a need to edit the connection string setting. I cannot do so using the My.Settings.myConnectionStringVariable method, as this is read-only. What I would like to do is have a big text box, and simply load the entire app.config file into it. The user could modify whatever they wanted, click save, and the program would save the new edits to the app.config file, and restart the program. I don't have a huge need to only pull out the connection string, as getting the text for the entire config file would suffice. However, if it is easier to pull out just the connection string from the config file, that would work too.

Write A Simple Game On Which The Player Has To Pursuit Some Figures On The Screen?

Oct 16, 2009

I'm currently trying to write a really simple game on which the player has to pursuit some figures on the screen. Since i'm just writing the prototype version i'm using a Panel wich i redraw 1000 times per second. Now, i want that every level is similar but not the same as past level, so i created a Level Class that contains the game objetcs of Player Class and the Figure Class, wich are the ones that have all the movement subrutines. So, with a Timer, 1000 times per second, i get the input from a joystick, pass it to the player objetc and update the position of the figure object. All this stuff is reported to an internal Panel that every level object has, wich i refresh and then pass it ByVal to the panel that the player actually sees. The problem i have is that after the first level ends, when the second level starts running, i can see the last frame of the fisrt level flashing behind the figures and it makes the game run a bit slower after every level. I tried keeping a copy of the inicial state of exterior panel and use it to clean the one i'm using on the levels but it didn't work...

C# - Use Or Not Lambda Expressions?

Nov 11, 2009

I see lambda expressions have become a very useful tool at some points in the language. I've been using them a lot and most of the time they fit really nice and make the code shorter and perhaps clearer.

Now.. I've seen some , I would say excessive use of them. Some people like them so much that try to use them everywhere they can.. Some times the C# code looks like a functional language. Other factors against are the cost using reflection by lambda and that not friendly to debugging.I would like to hear opinions about how good and how code clear it is to use more or less the lambda expressions. (this is not the better example, but let's say it was the trigger)I was writing the following code. The use of the delegate { return null; } helps me avoid having to ask if the event is null or not every time I have to use it.

public delegate ContactCellInfo.Guest AddGuest();
public event AddGuest GuestRequest = delegate { return null;}

Im using resharper and the wise resharper( even it some times literaly eats the memory) made me the following suggestion

public delegate ContactCellInfo.Guest AddGuest();
public event AddGuest GuestRequest = () => null;

At my point of view the code using the delegate looks clearer. I am not against the Lamdba expression just would like to hear some advices on how and when to use them.

Lambda Expressions In C# Vs. .net?

Jan 20, 2010

Functionally, is there any difference (apart from syntax onbviously) between lambda expressions in C# and VB.Net?EDIT: following up on CraigTP's answer: any references to the situation in .Net 4?EDIT: I'm asking because I'm used to C#, but for a next project the customer asks VB.Net. We're not a priori against that. We realize that most language constructs are supported in both languages. However, we're particularly fond of the way C# implements lambda expressions. We would like to have an overview of the differences with VB.Net

EDIT: accepted CraigTP's answer for pointing out what I currently consider the most important difference.

So to summarize: VB.Net 9 does not support multiline statements in a lambda expression, and a lambda must always return a value. Both of these issues are addressed in VB.Net 10

C# - .NET Async Lambda-expressions?

Apr 20, 2012

Async Sub like this: Dim f As Func(Of Task) = Async Sub() End Sub Produces compiler error: error BC36670: Nested sub does not have a signature that is compatible with delegate 'System.Func(Of System.Threading.Tasks.Task)'.Equivalent C# code compiles fine:

Func<Task> f = async () => { };Rewriting Async Sub into Async Function make code works.

Why does Async Sub() is not convertible to delegate types with return value of type Task?

Execute A Statement Only If Both Expressions Are Met?

Feb 13, 2011

I am new to VisualBasic and trying to learn it online. For my first assignment I have to make a program that allows someone to input a time in AM/PM and select the time zone and automatically output a picture and three other time zones. I think I have it for the most part but I am having an issue with one part in particular. Since the time is input using AM or PM if the original time is 11:00 AM and I add an hour it should switch to PM. But I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. I basically need to say If the time is equal to 12 and the meridiem is equal to am then it should switch to pm but I keep getting errors inidicating they are trying to switch to a boolean value.
