Failed to find or load the registered .net framework data provider for sqlite

While using “sqlite” one can encounter error “failed to find or load the registered .net framework data provider.”

We can solve the issue by taking care of following things:

Fix your DbProviderFactories entry in the config file (i.e. web.config or app.config) to reference the full (version and public key information) assembly name instead of the partial assembly name. A full reference allows .NET to search the GAC for SQLite.
Here's a "full" reference example:

<DbProviderFactories>
  <add name="SQLite Data Provider" invariant="System.Data.SQLite"
       description=".Net Framework Data Provider for SQLite"
       type="System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteFactory, System.Data.SQLite, Version=1.0.27.1, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=db937bc2d44ff139"/>
</DbProviderFactories>

However, if you're deploying to a production machine without access to the machine's GAC or the ability to register a provider on the GAC on the destination machine, then add reference of SQLite dll in your application as:

Right-click on "bin" -> select "Add Existing item", then browse for System.Data.SQLite.DLL and add it. Now you can leave the partial reference in the config file like you had it before, and SQLite's DLL gets copied out to the webserver when you deploy.

Note: If you want to install SQLite package on your local system for testing, download and install from here. Setup is available for all .Net Framework versions and includes all necessary dlls.

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"

Difference between Web API, WCF and Web Service

So now we have got the basic idea about Web API, now let’s do some comparison of Web API with WCF and web services.
Web Service WCF Web API Web services created as file with .asmx extension. WCF create with .svc extension Web API are simple class file with .cs(for C#) extension. Web API is inherited from “ApiController” and class name must end with “Controller”. It is SOAP based service and return data in XML form. It is also based on SOAP and return data in XML form. Web API is HTTP based service and by default it return data in JSON or XML form. It supports only HTTP protocol. It supports various protocols like TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, Named Pipes, and MSMQ. It supports HTTP protocol. It can be hosted only on IIS. It can be hosted with in the application or on IIS or using window service. It can be hosted with in the application or on IIS. It is not open source but can be consumed by any client that understands xml. It is not open source but can be consumed by any client t…
