CSV to XML Conversion using LINQ

on C#, if we want to Convert CSV to XML then you can use Language Integrated Query (LINQ) can be used to convert a CSV file to XML. Here is the sample CSV file that needs to be converted

below example code reads the CSV file to an array. LINQ is used to loop through the array and the contents are written as XML using XElement (System.XML.Linq).

public void ConvCSVToXML()


String[] FileContent = File.ReadAllLines(@"D:\Proj\jquery.csv");

String XMLNS = "";

XElement Inv = new XElement("type", from

items in FileContent

let fields = items.Split(',')

select new XElement("fadein",

new XElement("Tab", fields[0]),

new XElement("ProgressBar", fields[1]),

new XElement("ToolTip", fields[2]),

new XElement("Menu", fields[3]),


File.WriteAllText(@"D:\Proj\jquery.xml", XMLNS + Inv.ToString() );

using this you can convert your CSV file xml using C# and C# Convert CSV To XML, .NET CSV To XML

How to get the Upper Bound of an Array in C#

hi, if you'r using asp, vbscript and all then you have option call UBound
which will return a UpperBound value of Array. but on C#, you dont have that option call Ubound ,for that you can use GetUpperBound() option - Gets the upper bound of the specified dimension in the Array.

here is an Example which can show how to use GetUpperBound()

For i = MyArray.GetLowerBound(0) To MyArray.GetUpperBound(0)

Next i

like this way you can use both option call GetLowerBound & GetUpperBound ,
GetLowerBound will return lower bound you have to pass (int value)
0 - 1st arrayvalue, 1- 2ndarrayvalue like that,

thank you.

Download data using FTP or HTTP with C#

If you want to download data via FTP or HTTP then you can use this solution. you can Use the System.Net.WebClient to achieve this. The URI determines whether a file (file://) , FTP (FTP://) or HTTP (HTTP:// or HTTPS://) scheme is to be used.

On .Net2.0 there is an Async Version get added which will allows you download data asynchronously as a background task using its own thread from the thread pool. WebClient object can handle one async download at a time. its not useful for downloading many files concurrently , but if you want to do this then you can use multiple WebClient objects. if you want to Cancel the current download using CancelAsync.

There are Several Methods:

1. OpenRead - returns a System.IO.Stream
OpenReadAsync - async downloading use the handler OpenReadCompleted

2. DownloadData - returns a ByteArray
DownloadDataAsync - use handler DownloadDataCompleted

3. DownloadFile - Saves to a local file
DownloadFileAsync - use handler DownloadFileCompleted

4. DownloadString - returns a String ( introduced in .net 2.0)
DownloadStringAsync - use handler DownloadStringCompleted

Here is Sample code:

using System.IO;
using System.Net;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

string remoteUri = "";
WebClient client = new WebClient();
string str = client.DownloadString(remoteUri);

** if you are using proxy then you need extra code to code around it.
on my next post i will tell you how you can download data using Proxy.
Downloading data over FTP, Downloading data over HTTP, FTP, HTTP, Net.WebClient

SQL : Count String Occurrence

in SQl server, we dont have any function which can return the number of words in a perticular string .but from small tricks we can do that . now Consider here we can separating the character on space basis

example :

declare @Str VARCHAR(2000)
SET @Str = 'Hi this is Test line which count no of spaces.'
select LEN(@Str) - LEN(Replace(@Str,' ', '')) + 1

Above query will return value 10 , but if the words are separate by more than one space then it will aslo count that space. but its wrong as per the answer.
in that case Create one function which can keep multiple spaces as a single space and return proper result

Below is a Function which can remove white space and all and retrun peoper result.

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[WordCount] ( @inStr VARCHAR(4000) )


SET @Index = 1
SET @WordCount = 0

WHILE @Index <= LEN(@InStr)
SET @Char = SUBSTRING(@InStr, @Index, 1)
SET @PrevChar = CASE WHEN @Index = 1 THEN ' '
ELSE SUBSTRING(@InStr, @Index - 1, 1)

IF @PrevChar = ' ' AND @Char != ' '
SET @WordCount = @WordCount + 1

SET @Index = @Index + 1

RETURN @WordCount

now you can use that WordCount Function

SET @String = 'Hi this is Test line which count no of spaces.'
SELECT [dbo].[WordCount] ( @String )

Above Query will return Result 10 not any other,
hope you like this ,

SQL : how to sort ip Address.

ip address, is one of the key point to identify the user. now if your storing ip address on your database with the VARCHAR datatype with length of 25. guess you have 1 lakh's of records of different ip address and you want to sort that.

Then your sorting query will be

select [ipadd] as IpAddress from ip order by [ipadd]

now in this case it will return a result something like this


something like that but actually its not your answer , it get sorted on first no. so becasue of that your result get warry.on actual basic the result should come in this format


now how to achieve this use some technique here

select [IPAdd] from ip
order by CAST(PARSENAME([IPAdd], 4) AS INT),

now check this you get above result
thank you.

publish multiple websites using one solution.

on Visual Studio you can publish only one website at a time otherwise there is a clash between one website with multiple website.if you want to do that means on startup of one website other website also publish . for that you need to do some setting on Solutional Level.

follow the steps :

About XmlPreloadedResolver

when using Silverlight then XmlPreloadedResolver meaning is very useful, its a new type which can be useful when your working with XML . on XmlPreloadedResolver it has the Ability to load the DTD without call to network. This type manually maintain the DTD cache and all other with xml streams. XmlPreloadedResolver includes RSS1.0 and XHTML1.0 Defination of DTD.

sample code on how to work with XmlPreloadedResolver

String strDtd = "";
XmlPreloadedResolver resolver = new XmlPreloadedResolver();
resolver.Add(resolver.ResolveUri(null, "nameofDTD.dtd"), strDtd);
XmlReaderSettings rs = new XmlReaderSettings();
rs.XmlResolver = resolver;
rs.DtdProcessing = DtdProcessing.Parse;
XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("samplexml.xml", rs);

now you can also set the DTD sets Enable using XmlKnownDtds enumeration.
XmlKnownDtds is used with the XmlPreloadedResolver to identify the well-known DTD

the following example shos preloading Xhtml1.0 DTd into the XmlReaderSettings object
here there is no need of network call to parse the Xhtml will done automatically.

XmlReaderSettings settings = new XmlReaderSettings();
//define the Setting object to parsing DTD
settings.DtdProcessing = DtdProcessing.Parse;
// Define preloading Xhtml10 DTD
settings.XmlResolver = new XmlPreloadedResolver(XmlKnownDtds.Xhtml10);
//suppose read the sample.html file using XmlReader
XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("sample.html", settings);
// and load using XDocument object
XDocument document = XDocument.Load(reader);
