How to disable Cut, Copy and Paste for textbox using jQuery or JavaScript

While working sometimes we need to restrict users to cut copy and paste contents from TextBox. It’s quite easy to do this using either JavaScript or jQuery.

·         For JavaScript we can disable by adding attribute to TextBox.
·         For jQuery we need is to bind cut, copy and paste function to Textbox and stop the current action with the ‘preventDefault‘ method.

Code to disable cut/copy/paste:

//Disable using JavaScript:

<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" oncopy="return false" onpaste="return false" oncut="return false"></asp:TextBox>

//Disable with the help of bind method
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#txtName').bind("cut copy paste", function (e) {
        e.preventDefault();
    });
});

Sometime there may be issue with bind method, in such cases user can go for live method:

//Disable with the help of live method
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#txtName').live("cut copy paste", function (e) {
        e.preventDefault();
    });
});

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

Read and parse a CSV file into an array of rows and columns in C#

The following PopulateCsvIntoArraymethod used to read the CSV file into a two-dimensional array of strings.
I have included explanation of method lines, wherever needed. ///<summary> /// Populate the CSV file into an array, /// We assume that every line has the same number of fields and there may be blank lines. ///</summary> ///<returns></returns> privatestring[,] PopulateCsvIntoArray() { // Get path of CSV file. var path = Server.MapPath("~/Folder_Name/testfile.csv"); // Get the file's text using ReadAllText method. string fileData = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(path);
// Split CSV data into lines.     fileData = fileData.Replace('\n', '\r'); string[] lines = fileData.Split(newchar[] { '\r' }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
// Get rows and columns counts. int totalRows = lines.Length;

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"
