JQuery: How to get the current Page URL in JQuery/JavaScript?

Every now and then we need current page URL, it’s very easy to get current page URL at server side(C#), but people found it’s tricky while we need to get current page URL on client side, but it’s not so tricky.

We can get current page URL with both jQuery and JavaScript as:

$(document).ready(function () {
    //with jquery location object
    var path = $(location).attr('href');

    //with javascript code
    var path = window.location.href;
});

In jQuery we can use “location” object to get the more details of current page like host, hash, protocol, pathname, etc.

Same way we can use “window.location” in JavaScript to get all details of current page URL.

Let’s understand this with one example URL:

URL: http://www.testserver.com:8080/test.aspx#tab

JQuery
JavaScript
Result
$(location).attr('href');
window.location.href
http://www.testserver.com
:8080/test.aspx#tab
$(location).attr('host');
window.location.host

www.testserver.com:8080
$(location).attr('hostname');
window.location.hostname

www.testserver.com
$(location).attr('port');
window.location.port

8080
$(location).attr('protocol');
window.location.protocol

http
$(location).attr('pathname');
window.location.pathname

test.aspx
$(location).attr('hash');
window.location.hash

#tab

C#: Merging Excel cells with NPOI HSSFWorkbook

In this post we’ll see how to merge the two or more cell with each other while creating the excel sheet using NPOI.
Mentioned below is code to merge multiple cells, in this example we are merging first cell to fifth cell of first row (you can adjust row or cell range by passing particular parameters in CellRangeAddress).
//Created new Workbook var hwb = new NPOI.HSSF.UserModel.HSSFWorkbook(); //Create worksheet with name. var sheet = hwb.CreateSheet("new sheet"); //Create row and cell. var row = sheet.CreateRow(0); var cell = row.CreateCell(0); ; //Set text inside cell cell.SetCellValue("This is Merged cell"); cell.CellStyle.WrapText = true; //define cell range address // parameters: -> first row to last and first cell to last cell var cra = new NPOI.SS.Util.CellRangeAddress(0, 0, 0, 4); //Add merged region to sheet. sheet.AddMergedRegion(cra);
Hope this solution helps you J

Calculate Sum and average of two or more Textbox values using JQuery

We can calculate sum and average of values entered in textboxes with the help of small piece of jQuery code.
First of all let’s create a HTML form where we’ll ask user to enter marks in each subject, under body section add following HTML:
<tableclass="demo-table"> <trclass="label"> <tdcolspan="2">Please enter marks(0-99):</td> </tr> <tr> <td>English</td> <td> <inputtype="text"class="txtMarks"name="txtMarks"
