Return Text Input Element using Html.TextBox() handler: MVC

Html.TextBox() handler used to return text input element on the page at run time. It supports some types of parameters discussed and also have some more options to returning text inputs on the page. Mostly it is of two types listed below with their specification and uses.

@Html.TextBox(Parameter collection...)

This html handler is used to return text input element to be input some values by user like name, age, address and more. As this element is used like a method in Asp.Net MVC, this may have some parameters to be passed with it. This handler returns only an input field in the form of

<input type="text" name="name" id="id" />

Following is list of parameters this handler may used:
  • Name: used to specify name of form field (can be used to find control on page) and this parameter is of string type.
  • Value: this parameter is of type object and used to specify value of text input element. If this value is null then this element will get the value from viewdata dictionary otherwise model data dictionary.
  • Format: used to format the input value in prescribed format string. To format the text input in date form, programmer may use "{0:d}"
  • Html Attributes: the object contains html attributes to set for the element like class, font size and many more attributes.
    @Html.TextBox("txtName", "Student Name", "{0:d}", new { @class = "txtClass" })

@Html.TextBoxFor(Parameter collection...)

The main difference between @Html.TextBox() and @Html.TextBoxFor() is this handler use prediction to resolve the value to be shown. All the remaining parameters are same in both the handlers.

This method is used when programmer binds this page through a model class (having some properties). Programmer can specify more html attributes within the related section.

For example the following line of code will fix the max length of textbox
@Html.TextBoxFor(m=>m.Name, new { maxlength = "20" })

To disabled the textbox just specify the disabled attribute like written below:
@Html.TextBoxFor(m=>m.Name, new { disabled = "disabled" })

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 …
