jctree documentation

jcTree Documentation In this post I will show you how to use jcTree.exe to create a Javascript enabled tree from your command line. First up lets check out the command help as shown below [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c60cb0509491227/] Download this Utility from this URL http://jaspreetchahal.org/jctree-a-c-tool-to-create-jquery-javascript-enabled-folder-or-directory-tree-and-output-to-html-file/ I am not going to explain what each switch does but I am going to narrate couple of use cases Create a tree from Directory structure and save it to index.html under a given target folder Create a tree from Directory structure and save it to index.html under a given target folder with TXT files only and apply classic jsTree theme to it with verbose mode. Test Directory Structure C:\cutils\JCRSBackup.exe C:\cutils\License.txt C:\cutils\print.txt C:\cutils\Readme.txt C:\cutils\RackSpaceWindowsClient C:\cutils\RackSpaceWindowsClient\License.txt Scenario 1 Assuming the above directory structure exists lets create a tree for above directory structure and store it in c:\demo folder. One good thing about this Util is that if the target folder does not exist it will create it automatically The command [crayon-587f217c60cc4006721773/] [crayon-587f217c60ccb500698249/] When you run the above command "demo" folder will be created with index.html inside it. Notice that jsTree will also be copied to the destination folder. This is a requirement. Without it your tree will only be a unordered HTML list. Lets check out the browser output So we get nice tree and each node is a link to the file itself. From here on you can do whatever you like with your newly created file. Scenario 2 Assuming the directory structure is the same as in Scenario 1 use the command below The command [crayon-587f217c60cd1553087891/] [crayon-587f217c60cd7279693232/] When you run the above command "demo" folder will … [Read more...]

c# how to create XML without XML tag using XMLDocument and XMLWriter

[sam_ad id="48" codes="true"]Hi Guys, I had this problem where I just wanted to create a XML file without a XML tag. Frankly I was just creating a HTML snippet which I needed to embed in some other file. I am not going to show you all that code but instead I will show you the important bits. Below is the code that you should be looking for to create a XML file without XML tag. So we are using XMLDocument class to create a XML document. I am just using file name to include .html because that fit my scenario. Feel free to change it to any other extension. [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c627c6311176255/] Above code will produce the output file with contents below [crayon-587f217c627d3913081446/] [crayon-587f217c627d9464981516/] Important thing in the above code is utilizing XmlWriterSettings class and putting OmitXmlDeclaration property to false. Make sure that you also set ConformanceLevel to Fragment, by default it is set to Document and when XMLWriter is outputting a document it always will include XML tag. Lets omit XmlWriterSettings from the above code to make it equivalent to the code below [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c627df257739784/]   Above code will now output file called somefile.html with following contents [crayon-587f217c627e5449174940/] [crayon-587f217c627eb465894346/] I hope this helps … [Read more...]

c# How to copy directory and subdirectories files to new location programmatically

c# Get all files from Directory and sub directories

Hi Guys, Today I will show you how you can utilize .NET's inbuilt API function to get list of all files under a directory and all its subdirectories. First lets get files from a given Directory Lets assume that the target directory structure is one show below. C:\cutils\License.txt C:\cutils\print.exe C:\cutils\Readme.txt C:\cutils\RackSpaceWindowsClient C:\cutils\RackSpaceWindowsClient\License.txt If you want to get all files under c:\cutils you can do so using the code below [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c647ec591926117/] What if you want to get files in the subdirectories of c:\utils Get files from a given Directory and its subdirectories [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c647f7481595464/]   In above code passing SearchOption.AllDirectories as third param to Directory.GetFiles()  is the key. Lets talk about second param where I passes "*.*" Second param is a search pattern which will be applied as a filter. Ok lets say if you want to print files that has extension txt you can do so by passing in *.txt as a second param value. Code below shows that [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c647fe316579193/] As you see the above result does not include c:\cutils\print.exe I hope this post helped you.

c# check if path a Directory or File [solved]

G'Day Fellas, I had this problem where I had to check whether the supplied path is a Path to File or it is a Directory. There are few ways of doing this. e.g. using File.Exists() Directory.Exists() functions.   But then I thought there would definitely something else that could improve the code. There is nothing wrong with the above approach but I then found out that File Class comes with a method called GetAttributes Here is how we use it [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ]   [crayon-587f217c6539b186232435/] You can put it in any of your Util class function to re-use above code.

c# how to place caret/cursor position at start or end of textbox

This question has been addressed by many but I will give you an insight on this too Say you textbox is named: txtCaret Now to move the Caret position to the end of text in txtCaret simple use the code below [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c66076232815157/] And If you like the Caret position at the beginning of the text Box use the following code [crayon-587f217c66088692006774/] If you would like to select all text with txtCaret use the code below [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c66093197947997/] So you can do pretty much select any given string in a textbox if you really know what your selection will be.

c# replace a keystroke character with other key

How do you replace a character with other while "say" you are typing in a textbox or text area. There are couple of ways to do it. Lets consider an example. So say While I am typing a browser URL I always want people to enter '/' instead of '\' I will create an Event for Keydown for your textbox or textarea So lets say your textbox' ID is txtText [Geshi] [crayon-587f217c6691f459288562/] [/Geshi] In the sample above most important bit is to Suppress the Key press thus we are using e.SuppressKeyPress = true Other way is pretty much the same but you will see a little flicker when replacement occurs so I prefer the above technique always but its worth to show you any way because the technique below will actually replace all source replaceable characters with the new one [geshi lang="csharp" nums="1" target="_self" ] [crayon-587f217c66930704036354/] So this is how you can manipulate Keystokes and do whatever with them. Even though I consider it as not so user friendly but there can be many other use cases where this is acceptable, say for example only allow numerics in a text field etc I hope this helps … [Read more...]
