The Datagrid is a new control added to DynamicForm 4 . It is handy to design a set of controls dynamically, for example, you can reuse the same set of controls to collect automobile information for a user if the user has more than one vechile.
You can view the result or email the result without any difficulty. However, if you want the dataset in a relational manner, you need to know some basic query skill to convert XML data into relational table columns.
Here is the code snippet which may be helpful if you come to this page:
with mycte as
n.l.value(‘td’,’VARCHAR(200)’) AS td1,
n.l.value(‘td’,’VARCHAR(200)’) AS td2,
n.l.value(‘td’,’VARCHAR(200)’) AS td3
CROSS APPLY MyDGControlName.nodes(‘//tr’) n(l)
select * from mycte
DECLARE @fromDate DATETIME DECLARE @toDate DATETIME SET @fromDate='2/2/2012' SET @toDate='4/2/2012'; WITH mycte AS (SELECT @fromDate AS DateValue UNION ALL SELECT DateValue + 1 FROM mycte WHERE DateValue + 1 <= @toDate), mycte2 AS (SELECT DateValue, Dateadd(mm, Datediff(mm, 0, DateValue), 0) as myMonth, Count(*) OVER(Partition BY Dateadd(mm, Datediff(mm, 0, DateValue), 0)) AS TotalDays FROM mycte) SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), Min(DateValue), 101) fromDate, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), Max(DateValue), 101) ToDate, Max(TotalDays) AS TotalDays FROM mycte2 GROUP BY myMonth OPTION (MAXRECURSION 0)
Today, I came across an article at cnn.com : “Permanent beta: Why your career is a work in progress”, which is an specially adapted excerpt of the book titled ” The Start-Up of You”, by Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha. Here is the link to the article:
After reading this article online, I bought a copy for myself and put it on my next week’s reading list. I really recommend to anyone who comes to this blog to read this book too.
