  1. In Topic: Using a DateTime field from a SQL Database

    Posted 30 Oct 2014

    Yes, there is a significantly neater (and safer) way to do that. Read this tutorial:


    To boil it down, your update statement would look like this:

    UPDATE PayrollRuns SET IsProcessed = 'True' WHERE Date_Time_Triggered = @timeTriggered

    The idea is that you replace your actual values with "parameters". These act like SQL variables. You would then add a parameter to the command object, and provide the DateTime itself, not a string representation of the DateTime.

    Read through the tutorial and let me know if you still need help.

    P.S.: If you ever need a string representation of a date in a particular format, you can give a format string to the .ToString method. Try this out:

    var str = dateTimeTriggered.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff");

    Then if you print str, you'll see the date in the correct format. Here's a link with all the formatting options:

    In the future, you can click the "Report" button located at the bottom left of any post. Include details about your request, and if it's within the rules, we'll do what we can to help.
  3. In Topic: Using a DateTime field from a SQL Database

    Posted 30 Oct 2014

    Well, I'm not sure what mechanism you're using for database access, but assuming that your databaseRow is a DataReader, getting something by index always returns an object, which you must cast to the correct type.

    Try this:

    DateTime date_Time_Triggered = (DateTime)databasesRow["Date_Time_Triggered"];

    That should work, if your column in the database is actually a DateTime column. If it's a varchar/nvarchar/char/nchar field, this simply will not work; you'd have to parse the date as a DateTime.

    But I'm assuming that it actually is a DateTime,because of your observed behavior. The default format of a DateTime's ToString does not include milliseconds. So even if you did get the date correctly, if you just look at it's ToString results, it will be missing the milliseconds part.

    If you want to see how to query databases more correctly (using parameters rather than string concatenation) check out the link in my signature. If you're unfamiliar with SQL Parameters, this is worth your time.
  4. In Topic: Adding The Value Of A Columns Digits To Get A Total With A ListView

    Posted 28 Oct 2014've already got a loop. You've already got the code that pulls the "number" field. This line of code here is what I'm assuming pulls the number:

    string NumberVariable = node_of_node["Number"].InnerText;

    So, knowing that you can get each number, that's where you should be doing your summation. Outside the inner loop, you can create an int variable that will hold the sum. Set it to 0.

    Inside the loop, after you've grabbed your "NumberVariable" you can use the int.Parse method to convert that string to an integer. Add the result to your sum variable.

    Once you exit the inner loop, the sum variable will hold the total. Assign it to the label.

  5. In Topic: Adding The Value Of A Columns Digits To Get A Total With A ListView

    Posted 28 Oct 2014

    We already have, several times. Don't try to go back into your ListView's items to calculate. You have to be adding these items to the ListView somehow. Use that data to calculate what the sum should be, then set the label value to that. You haven't shown us the code you use to add the items to the ListView, so it's hard to be more specific than that.
