I think the OP meant
6x - (y^2 - 1)/y
Pesky parenthesis and minus signs.

Still don't know what he wants to do, though. Parse the expression and simplify or what.
George Jonsson 25-Nov-17 11:14am View
Do you open the connection once in the beginning of the code and then keep sending requests without closing the connection?
Databases usually have a timeout that will prevent a connection to be kept open for too long.
A better approach is to
1. Connect
2. Get data
3. Close
4. Repeat

Can you elaborate a little bit more about the problem you are trying to solve, as it is not crystal clear.
Shouldn't it be "3+7+6+9=25", if you want the highest score in each row?
George Jonsson 7-Aug-16 23:59pm View
Thanks a million. The change has to be made in hpptd.conf or .htaccess, but otherwise you were spot on.
I had to add the following lines inside the block <ifmodule mime_module="">
AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm
Then it worked like a charm.

You should submit this as an answer, so other people can benefit from it.

This is not a question, but a code dump.
What kind of problem do you have and what kind of help do you need?
George Jonsson 5-Aug-16 23:19pm View
What kind of type is the variable da?
And what is not working? No data shown in the grid view?

You are welcome.
You can probably cut that time too if you do some optimizations of the code.

Another "programmer" trying to be clever.
This question is from Contest Page | CodeChef[^], so the little cheater wants someone to solve the problem for him.
And this is the second time the OP is doing this.
Why not start learning how to write code yourself?
George Jonsson 14-Jun-16 1:59am View
Not really clear what it is you want to do.
Do you have a database already? Mentioning an .mdf file indicates you are using SQL server in some way.
And why do you need a database per year for a small amount of data?
George Jonsson 14-Jun-16 1:51am View
See my updated answer. The article I have linked to might be of help.
George Jonsson 13-Jun-16 7:48am View
Sorry, my bad. I accidentally wrote Col2 instead of col2 inside the regular expression.
C# is a bit case sensitive.
See the updated solution.
George Jonsson 13-Jun-16 3:55am View
You mean error, I suppose.
Well, it is not easy to give any more help.
Have you tried to remove the code inside the constructor of class A?
Like this
Because you create some new pointers there from unknown classes.

How did you compile your unmanaged DLL? As StdCall or Cdecl?
Just as an experiment set CallingConvention = CallingConvention.StdCall in your DllImport attribute.

Of course it is not working. Where do you set the variable k?

Now it is time for you to start to think a bit on your own.
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 20:47pm View
According to your previous question (How can I write a C program find the number of the winner?[^]) you need to find the max for both red and blue votes and then combine them into a number, like
Blue: 1 6 2 5 3 3 Max = 6
Red : 2 1 7 3 1 2 Max = 7
And the answer should be 67.
Or have I misunderstood completely?
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 19:55pm View
From your previous question, my understanding was that you wanted to find the maximum in a one dimensional array, not a two dimensional.
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 19:53pm View
After your change in the code it will not compile, because all paths doesn't have a return value.
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 18:58pm View
Very subtle :)
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 18:52pm View
printf returns the number of characters written, so this line will be confusing for you.
return(printf("No unique max."));

This is a very old question, and this answer doesn't add anything new or brilliant.
Better remove this answer before you get too many down votes.
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 18:40pm View
Posting another question is the right thing to do.
Or better yet. Sit down and think about how you would find the maximum value in an array. And if you hit the same value twice, just use a counter.
George Jonsson 12-Jun-16 18:29pm View
Does the code work?
Learn to use memset instead of a loop to set memory to a value.
Remove the 'else continue' thingys. In the second place it changes the functionality.

Well, next time be sure to explain what your real problem is. Your question and your code doesn't really match.
(And I usually don't read the code because it is too messy)
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 21:36pm View
Not sure why you think a 2D array would be easier, but if you really want to have it that way just replace
int redVotes[9];
int blueVotes[9];
votes[9][9]; // But use your defined N instead of the hard coded numbers

You still need to find the maximum for each "column" in the matrix.
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 20:46pm View
You are probably right.
Too many factors that can effect the RSSI value. If the tag is on the front or back on a box, for example.
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 11:02am View
How do you call this method?
Can you show that piece of code?

Also, why not use DateTime as parameters?
public DataSet Getindividualsales(DateTime date1, DateTime date2)
makes your method neater.
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 10:51am View
It just looks a bit odd to suggest using regex and then the code presented has nothing to do with that.
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 10:36am View
Where do you use regex in your solution?
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 10:04am View
Understood, but to help you, you need to specify the column names and the data types for the DataTable you will do the actual LINQ query against.
George Jonsson 11-Jun-16 9:45am View
Do you mean that the RSSI value changes even if the tag is at a constant distance?
How much does the RSSI value vary? (In, for example, percent)

Sorry about the mixup, but as I wrote in the answer, the code was written directly in the editor here and never tested, so no guarantees.

The obvious answer would be that you should post your question in the Comments and Discussions section of the article. However, it doesn't seem like the the author has been active recently.
You should try it there anyway, chances are slim that anyone here wants to debug the code for you.
Or you could debug the code yourself. Looks like there is a link for downloading the source code.

So how do you want the values for Physical and Exposure to be presented? As comma separated lists?
You have one Strategy element and many Physical and Exposure elements, so you cannot get them as one value.

Thanks Sergey.
It is just one way to do it and it is pretty straightforward and simple.
George Jonsson 3-Jun-16 9:10am View
That's weird. It works for me with that string, 2 word and 6 characters.
What kind of animal is txtStringName.Value?
Is it s string or an object?
Maybe you have to write txtStringName.Value.ToString()

Nah, that shouldn't matter. Forget that

If you use the debugger, what is the string value of txtStringName.Value?
George Jonsson 3-Jun-16 9:09am View
Not sure exactly what output you want, but I have changed the code so it gives you all sub-elements.

So what does the JSON string look like AFTER it has passed the C# code?
I'm not going to execute the code. That is your job.

So you don't have any support channel to the back office??? That's kind of weird.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 10:48am View
So the Postman tool and your back office system doesn't agree on the correct JSON format?
Then you have to adapt to the format the back office system requires.
As far as I know, double quotes surrounding a variable name are required.
See JSON Syntax[^]
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 10:19am View
If you read your own question, do you think there is enough information for anyone to answer your question?
What hardware?
Where is the code you have tried?
And what is it you really want to do?
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 10:15am View
So what is the difference between the JSON data from the Postman tool and the JSON data you create in your code?
And don't tell me there is no difference if one way works and the other doesn't.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 10:07am View
Why not use a data grid?
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 10:06am View
We are definitely not on the same page.
My point is that if you extract the JSON data as a string, using the debugger or saving it to a file, and then send it as a mail to the administrator of the receiving system, they could tell you if your JSON data is valid or not.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 5:40am View
Maybe you should start to explain your end goal.Maybe there is a better way to do this.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 5:20am View
You got it a bit backwards. Of course you cannot do DateTime nowdate = DateTime.Now.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy h:mm tt"); DateTime is one type and string is another type.
If you want to compare two dates and your input date is a string, then first convert the string to a date.
Use DateTime.Parse() or DateTime.ParseExact()
Now really look at the given solution and try it out.

And we cannot know how to use it in your program, because you don't present any code.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 5:19am View
Use DateTime.Parse() or DateTime.ParseExact instead. It gives you better control of the conversion.
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 2:53am View
You need to explain a little bit more.
How do you select the date? With a date time picker?
And what is the field? A text box, a cell in a grid or what?
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 2:18am View
Where is the code you have tried?
George Jonsson 2-Jun-16 1:37am View
If you are so sure your JSON format is correct, you better talk to the guys at back office.
Send the JSON string in a mail and ask why it is not accepted.
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 23:42pm View
You seriously want that look of your UI?
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 22:14pm View
ANTLR4 could be a good choice, it as free without any licensing as far as I know.

I think, but that is a guess, that oCompanyBO.SelectedSupplierIDs is a variable.
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 11:38am View
It is difficult to understand what you are trying to say, but I repeat:
XSD is defined in an XML format so there is no need to do any conversion.
Just tell the receiver that it is a schema and not content that you are sending.
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 10:46am View
Well, that is not easy to know for anyone but you.
You say you get an error sending your JSON data, and the JSON structure you show is not in a valid format, so what am I supposed to think?
Have you tried to validate the true JSON output in the online tool I linked?
Just convert the data to a string or save to a file and then paste it into the validator. If you do that you might find the problem.
And why don't you ask the back office guys what is wrong with the format?

As you don't show the true JSON data it is difficult to give more help. This is weird though.
MsgRequest: "{
Header: {
What is the quotation mark doing there?
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 5:39am View
Do you mean serialize a C# object to JSON?
Your statements are confusing because the error code you have shown in the question is because of the lack of quotation marks (") and the JSON code you show is without them.
George Jonsson 1-Jun-16 0:22am View
For one question no, but to filter out half a dozen of your answers, by opening a page, downvote if you answered, open next, downvote, etc. seems to be a bit of work to do for no benefit.
Oh well, if it is done manually it should getting tiresome after a while.

You don't specify the structure of the data table returned by getProductsonBarcode() and you don't specify what structure you want to present in the grid view, so it is not easy to give more specific advice.

Create a new data table then, with a static structure that can be shown in the grid and use that as a data source.

I was born in a free country and as far as I know I can basically debate any subject I choose to debate.

The rules maybe explicit but the implementation of the rules are not always so strict. Different compilers have different implementations.

In this case it doesn't matter, however, as the result of c - '0' will be implicitly type casted to an int if the receiving variable is an int.

The code
char c = '5';
int i = c - '0';
compiles without any warnings, at least in Visual Studio with warning level 4.
You can do the same thing in C# as well, and the result will be the expected i = 5.
Don't know what kind of compiler you have, though, it might give a different result.
I'm not saying if it is good practice to do this or not, but the the compilers I have used will not complain about it.

It is probably a good idea to check if the value of c is a digit, if you want the desired result.

So you see I can argue it, and you are free to argue back if you so wish.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 18:10pm View
sor = c - '0';
This is a perfectly valid line in C, as char is an integer type and is normally signed by default, hence it can contain the values between -128 and 127.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 10:10am View
I am not going to setup your whole system and debug it for you, so I cannot send you the complete code.
You get the exception [FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.], most likely because the value of phtxt.Text is not a number, like 12345467, but contains some non-numerical characters or is empty.
Use the debugger and set a breakpoint and inspect the value, or at least look in your form what value you enter in that text box.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 9:59am View
The value of phtxt.Text, not the name of the text box.
If the value really is 'phtext' then of course the conversion from a string to a number will fail.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 8:59am View
What is the value in the text box?
George Jonsson 29-May-16 8:55am View
Then check the value of phtxt.Text in the debugger.
Is it really an integer value?
George Jonsson 29-May-16 8:37am View
Sorry, not tonight. I will have a look again tomorrow.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 8:34am View
Seems I was wrong with this line
command.Parameters.Add("@phonenumber", SqlDbType.BigInt).Value = long.Parse(phtxt.Text);
change back to
command.Parameters.Add("@phonenumber", SqlDbType.BigInt).Value = phtxt.Text;
The conversion is done automatically, if I understood the documentation correctly.

I am just saying that you should not post code in the comment section.

It was a mess before ppolymorphe fixed it.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 6:38am View
Use Improve question and either add new code or replace existing.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 6:29am View
Why do you post your code here in the comment section?
George Jonsson 29-May-16 6:07am View
But not formatted with the correct language. It makes reading the code so much easier, and your job is to make it easy to help you.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 5:59am View
I tried to format the code, but the first part is a mess. You have to paste it again, I think.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 5:43am View
Please, please use Improve question and insert your code there.
And formatted properly too.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 5:22am View
Please show us the code you have written so far explain where you are stuck.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 5:18am View
True. Many questions are about "How can I store the value 00001, the zeroes disappear in my data table"
George Jonsson 29-May-16 4:13am View
Don't post your code in the comment section. (No one is going to read it like this)
Use the Improve question button instead. And don't forget to format the code properly.
Also clearly indicate where in the code you think the problem is.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 4:10am View
Elegant solution, but maybe not so readable for a newbie.
George Jonsson 29-May-16 1:37am View
You are probably right.
George Jonsson 28-May-16 21:53pm View
That's a bad tool, teaching bad habits, as one of the most common problems in C++ is memory leaks.

Anyway, I think this is the problem in your first attempt.
sor = c - '0'; Here you assume the the number of rows are always a single digit.
What if there are 11 rows? Will the code work then?
George Jonsson 28-May-16 20:56pm View
Actually, both variants should be rejected.
You allocate memory with calloc(), but you never release it with free().

What is the purpose of the program? What is the expected output?
George Jonsson 28-May-16 20:44pm View
You need to explain more what it is you want to do.
The answer of what variable?
George Jonsson 28-May-16 5:34am View
How do you mean?

Always use the Reply button if you want to make sure to notify the person are replying to.

So what is the unexpected result and what is the result you expect.
And where in the code does it happen.

You do realize that we cannot see your screen, read your hard disk or read your mind.
We cannot test run your code either without setting up a system similar to yours, so provide as much relevant information as you can.
George Jonsson 28-May-16 4:42am View
So what is the problem?
You have described what you are doing, but not if you get any errors or if you get an unexpected result.
George Jonsson 28-May-16 3:12am View
Thanks, Sergey.
George Jonsson 28-May-16 3:01am View
What is the code are you using to convert a long to a struct successfully.
It would be very interesting to see.

XSD is an XML format.
Do you want to transfer the XSD schema or the XML file that is based on the schema?
George Jonsson 27-May-16 9:55am View
Lazyness, I guess.
To use an enum is a better idea, I just didn't think about it in all of the commotion. :)
George Jonsson 27-May-16 9:17am View
I tend to agree. I can't remember how many times I have fixed bugs caused by a one character buffer overrun, where the null character was forgotten.
What made things even worse was that in debug mode it usually worked, due to some extra byte allocation by Visual Studio, if I remember correctly.
George Jonsson 27-May-16 8:11am View
Have you included the correct header file in your code?
George Jonsson 27-May-16 7:35am View
It seems more than likely, but with the number of weird questions that pops up here at CP, who knows.

Never liked to do string operations in C, so I avoid it if possible.

+5 Very good point with the manger app.
Gives only one entrance point into the database.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 18:57pm View
A bit confusing.
You say you want to find 2605, but in the code snippet you look for 2036.
Maybe it is a typo, but it also COULD be why your code doesn't work.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 18:53pm View
Why do this in the first place? It is not the most user-friendly way to present your data.
Maybe if you explain a bit more, there might be a better solution for what you want to achieve.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 18:45pm View
Very true.

Is it a Windows Form project?
Are you showing the data in the data table in a DataGridView?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 18:31pm View
Do you need an asynchronous client for this?
At least it might be easier to start with a synchronous client for finding out how to handle the exceptions.
Basically you need to close the port when you get an exception and then check the connection status before sending a request. If it is not Open, then you need to fix that.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 18:13pm View
OK. Didn't know.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 9:25am View
Have you tried any of the articles form the link I provided.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 7:49am View
And the problem is?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 7:45am View
And the error is?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 6:30am View
1- Please don't dump your code in the comment section. Improve your original question instead. No one will take the time to read the code like this.
2. Also point out the line where the exception occurs.
George Jonsson 26-May-16 6:26am View
Do you mean on that line? I doubt that dt.Merge(dtnew); throws that kind of exception.
Have measured the time taken for the operation?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 3:33am View
In which code line does the error happen?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 2:21am View
And what is this?
port = new System.IO.Ports.SerialPort(comPort);
You have that in your original post.
And where does Port.writeln write to?
George Jonsson 26-May-16 0:17am View
You can only have one instance of SerialPort for the same COM port at a time.
You seem to have two, port and serial. Why?

Maybe a bit off topic.
This is more of a programming question forum.

So what was done to the server that stopped working?
And don't say nothing, because something changed.
Maybe a reboot, installation of new software or something like that.
Or was the client software changed in some way?

You need to analyze what was changed and that can take time sometimes if you don't have full control of the servers or client software.

What version of Windows are you using?

When using streams it is good practice to do
using (Stream s = new Stream())
} // Stream closes here
If you also create the output stream, make sure to close it.
