Using LINQ concatenate unique items of two List and Sort them.

In this post I’ll show how you can combine unique items of two List<string> and then Sort them with the help of LINQ.

Let’s take two List<string> contains employee names:

List<string> empNameList1 = new List<string>()
{
    "Sandeep",
    "Ashwani",
    "Ashish" ,
    "Saurav"
};

List<string> empNameList2 = new List<string>()
{
    "Rahul",
    "Sachin",
    "Sandeep",
    "Yuvraj"
};

As you can see one name is common in both employee lists, so let’s write LINQ statement (using the Enumerable.Concat method) to get unique names and then sort them and finally print all the sorted unique names by looping through it.

// Concatenate Unique Names of two List<string> and then sort.
var finalNameList = empNameList1.Concat(empNameList2).Distinct().OrderBy(e => e);

//Print sorted unique names.
foreach (var name in finalNameList)
    Console.WriteLine(name);

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"
