Computer Programming : How to change data without postback in ASP.NET

News From Computer Programming: In ASP.NET you can't change the data without post-back, if you want to change data without post back, you can use AJAX technology. In previous article we have already learned more about AJAX like, How to install AJAX control Toolkit to the Toolbox or many more. Today we will learn How to update your GridView data in every seconds, for this you can use Timer control.
The Timer control is used for updating contents of the UpdatePanel control at predefined intervals. Single Timer control can refresh  more than one UpdatePanel control simultaneously. The Timer control  has an Interval property for defining the timer limit after which the content gets refreshed. When this interval limit gets over, the Tick event is raised . You can handle this event for updating the content values defined in the UpdatePanel control. The Timer control can be used either inside the UpdatePanel control or outside the UpdatePanel control. Now, let's try to understand the UpdatePanel control in both ways.

Timer control Inside the UpdatePanel Control

To use the Timer control inside the UpdatePanel control, drag and drop from the Toolbox as a sub-element of the <ContentTemplate>tag and follow the following steps:
1. Set the interval property of the Timer control as 1000 that equal to 1 second as it takes value in milliseconds.
2.Now, double-click the Timer control in design mode. It will generate event handler function in the code-behind file to handle the Tick event.

Timer Control Outside the UpdatePanel Control

You can use the Timer control outside the UpdatePanel control. This approach is appropriate when there are more than one UpatePanel control in the same Web page and you need to use same Timer control for all or some of them. To do so, you need to perform some changes in your application. However, these changes will not affect the output of your application. First, drag-and-drop the Timer control from the toolbox. Drop it after the ScriptManager control and before the UpdatePanel control; and configure its properties in the following way:
The ScriptManager Tag:
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">

The Timer control outside the UpdatePanel control and after the ScriptManager Tag:
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>

        <asp:Timer ID="Timer1" runat="server" Interval ="1000" OnTick ="Timer1_Tick"></asp:Timer>
Configure the UpdatePanel Control's <Triggers> Element for referencing the timer control in the following way:

   <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
                <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID ="Timer1" EventName ="Tick" />
Lets take a simple example to update GridView Data:
Step-1 : Add ScriptManager and UpdatePanel control after Form tag
Step-2 : Add Content template inside UpdatePanel Control.  
Step-3 : Add Timer control inside ContentTemplate with Tick event and Interval property.
Step-4 : Also add GridView control inside the Content Template.
Step-5 : Bind GridView Control in Tick event.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
