Split string in Sql Server

Today I found very good solution, to split the string in Sql Server:
//Sql Function

@String NVARCHAR(4000),
@Delimiter NCHAR(1)
WITH Split(stpos,endpos)
SELECT 0 AS stpos, CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,@String) AS endpos
SELECT endpos+1, CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,@String,endpos+1)
FROM Split
WHERE endpos > 0
'Data' = SUBSTRING(@String,stpos,COALESCE(NULLIF(endpos,0),LEN(@String)+1)-stpos)
FROM Split

//How to uses
DECLARE @DelimitedString NVARCHAR(128)
SET @DelimitedString = 'Duckman,Cornfed,Ajax,Charles,Mambo'
SELECT * FROM Split(@DelimitedString, ',')

 var vmm = new vm();


        range: true,
        min: vm.minFare(),

Umbraco 5 Surface Controller

In Umbraco5, Surface Controller is very interesting topic that everyone should know about this. Today I was digging with Umbraco 5.2 Beta version and successfully created my first surface controller which handle the contact form.
Surface controller is important because who one is move from Umbraco 4.7 to Umbraco 5.x then surely they looking for User Control macro stuff.

Surface Controller perform majorly 3 task:

1) Work with View-Model OR Data
2) If you want to render a partial view using View-Model
3) If you wan to submit any form

Find below steps, how to create a Contact Form using Surface Controller in Umbraco 5

Step-1 : First Create a Contact View-Model class

using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;
namespace Site.Extensions.ViewModel
public class ContactViewModel
[Required(ErrorMessage = “Please enter your name”)]
public string Name { get; set; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = “Email address required”)]
[RegularExpression(@”[a-zA-Z0-9!#$%&’*+/=?^_`{|}~-]+(?:\.[a-zA-Z0-9!#$%&’*+/=?^_`{|}~-]+)*@(?:[a-zA-Z0-9](?:[a-zA-Z0-9-]*[a-zA-Z0-9])?\.)+[a-zA-Z0-9](?:[a-zA-Z0-9-]*[a-zA-Z0-9])?”, ErrorMessage = “Please enter a valid e-mail address”)]
public string Email { get; set; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = “Please enter your phone number”)]
public string PhoneNo { get; set; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = “Please enter a subject”)]
public string Subject { get; set; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = “Please enter a message”)]
public string Message { get; set; }

public bool SubmitHandled { get; set; }

Step-2 Create Surface Controller class which handle contact form and render the contact form
//Note: First take reference of Umbraco.Cms.Web dll which is present under Umbraco Bin folder

using Umbraco.Cms.Web.Context;
using Umbraco.Cms.Web.Surface;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using Site.Extensions.ViewModel;
using Umbraco.Web.Classes;

namespace Umbraco.Web.Controllers
//Note: All surface controller class should be inherited with “SurfaceController” class
// and should be postfix with “SurfaceController” other wise when you will create child action macro then this
// class will not able to populate under drop downlist

public class ContactFormSurfaceController : SurfaceController
private readonly IUmbracoApplicationContext context;
private const string FormSentKey = “ContactFormSent”;

public ContactFormSurfaceController(IUmbracoApplicationContext context)
//If you want to access current page data then you can use this object
//but in that can case you have to pass Hive id from partial view using “Model.Id”
context = context;

//ChildActionOnly annotation is required for rendering the view and return type be PartialViewResult

public PartialViewResult RenderContactForm()
//Create your model view class as created above
var model = new ContactViewModel();

//This code block is basically used to show the confirmation message on page that email send successfully

var formSent = TempData[FormSentKey];
if (formSent != null && bool.Parse(formSent.ToString()))
model.SubmitHandled = true;

return PartialView(“contactFormRender”, model);
//PartialView takes two parameters first one is your partial view name and second one is your model class

//HttpPost annotation is required for handling your contact form submit.

public ActionResult SendContactForm(ContactViewModel model)
//Check if submitted form is valid
if (!ModelState.IsValid)
return CurrentUmbracoPage(); //If any error occurred then stick with current form

//Send email

//This flag value used in RenderContactForm method to show the confirmation message
TempData[FormSentKey] = true;

return RedirectToCurrentUmbracoPage(); //Redirect to current form. Note: You redirect to other page too

Step-3 : Login in Umbraco back office and go to Setting section. Under Partial folder, create a partial page


@model Site.Extensions.ViewModel.ContactViewModel
//Note: BeginUmbracoForm first two parameter is very important:
// First one: give the Surface Controller httppost handler name. In our case is "SendContactForm"
// Second one: Surface Controller name
// see controller class

@using (Html.BeginUmbracoForm(“SendContactForm”, “ContactFormSurface”, null, new Dictionary { { “class”, “validate-form” } }))

Contact Form

@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Name)
@Html.EditorFor(model => model.Name) @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Name)
@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Email)
@Html.EditorFor(model => model.Email) @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Email)
@Html.LabelFor(model => model.PhoneNo)
@Html.EditorFor(model => model.PhoneNo) @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.PhoneNo)
@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Subject)
@Html.EditorFor(model => model.Subject) @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Subject)
@Html.LabelFor(model => model.Message)
@Html.TextAreaFor(model => model.Message) @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Message)

input type=”submit” value=”Send Email”

@if (Model.SubmitHandled)

Thanks, we’ll get back to you soon.


Note: after above steps, please build the project so you will get Surface Controller class under the macro.

Step-4 : Go to Developer section in umbraco back office then under macro node create a macro as

You done all steps and your form will start working.

Please let me know if found any issue.

Export MS Chart to PDF using Itextsharp in Asp.Net

Export MS Chart to PDF in Asp.Net

Using itextsharp, export ms chart into pdf file
I am rendering a chart using chart control in asp.Net 4.0. Now we want to export that chart image into pdf file. Interesting point is, I am not using template file here, I used Memory Mapped file feature though we can read/write file in memory.

Used tools and technology: .Net4.0,, c#, itextshartp, ms chart control

using (MemoryMappedFile mMappedFile = MemoryMappedFile.CreateNew("test.pdf", 1000000))
iTextSharp.text.Document doc =
new iTextSharp.text.Document(PageSize.A4, 72, 72, 172, 72);
using (MemoryMappedViewStream stream = mMappedFile.CreateViewStream())
// associate the document to the stream. PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, stream);
//Save chart as image
 using (var chartimage = new MemoryStream())
  //here Chart1 is chart control which rendered chart
  Chart1.SaveImage(chartimage, ChartImageFormat.Png);
  iTextSharp.text.Image img = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(chartim age.GetBuffer());
  doc.Add(new Paragraph(String.Format("Chart Title")));
  doc.Add(img); doc.Close();
//read the data from the file and send it to the response stream
byte[] bytes;
using (MemoryMappedViewStream stream = mMappedFile.CreateViewStream())
  BinaryReader rdr = new BinaryReader(stream);
  bytes = new byte[mMappedFile.CreateViewStream().Length];
  rdr.Read(bytes, 0, (int)mMappedFile.CreateViewStream().Length);

Response.Clear();Response.ContentType = "Application/pdf";

Bar Chart random color in asp.Net

Display bars in random colors:

IDictionary<string, int> list= new Dictionary<string, int>();
list.Add(“Val 1”, 90);
list.Add(“Val  2”, 89);
list.Add(“Val 3”, 50);
list.Add(“Val 5”, 87);

chrtBar2.Series[“Categories”].XValueMember = “key”;
chrtBar2.Series[“Categories”].YValueMembers = “value”;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisX.MajorGrid.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisX.MajorTickMark.Enabled = true;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisX.MinorGrid.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisX.MinorTickMark.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisY.MajorGrid.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisY.MajorTickMark.Enabled = true;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisY.MinorGrid.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.ChartAreas[“MainChartArea”].AxisY.MinorTickMark.Enabled = false;
chrtBar2.Series[“Categories”][“PointWidth”] = “1.0”;
chrtBar2.Series[“Categories”].BorderWidth = 1;
chrtBar2 .Series[“Categories”].BorderColor = Color.White;
chrtBar2.DataSource = list;

//Set random color
Random random = new Random();foreach (var item in chrtBar2.Series[“Categories”].Points)

Color c = Color.FromArgb(random.Next(0, 255), random.Next(0, 255), random.Next(0, 255));
item.Color = c;

Each time will change the bar colors  when page will refreshed.
