ToolTip on specific DropdownList item in c#

Today i am talking about tooltip, First of all i introduce you , what is tooltip? When our mouse cursor move over the object then appear a rectangle shape with text this things known as tooltip. When we work with particular item then easy set the tooltip on it. But when we work on collection then we put some ideas on it. Like first to access each item from the collection then apply tooltip on each accessed item. Today, i want to give a simple example on it. I have a database table with three columns, see below:

Database table(country table)

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[country] (
    [CountryId]    INT            IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL,
    [CountryName]  NVARCHAR (MAX) NULL,
    [Countryimage] NVARCHAR (MAX) NULL,

First to add some item in the table after then you have to access items. If you want to add items in the table by the help visual studio server explorer then do the following.

Right click on your table name --> Select show table data

Source Code
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default9.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default9" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server"  Height="26px" OnDataBound="DropDownList1_DataBound" Width="142px" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="CountryName" DataValueField="CountryId"></asp:DropDownList>
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [country]"></asp:SqlDataSource>

How to design above mentioned code. The answer is :Bind the DropdownList with the SqlDataSource also SqlDataSource Control connect with database table. The above mentioned code automatically generated by the visual studio.

Code Behind Code

protected void DropDownList1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
        DropDownList ddl = sender as DropDownList;
        if (ddl != null)
            foreach (ListItem li in ddl.Items)
                li.Attributes["title"] = li.Text;


After bind the Dropdownlist you have to access each item from the list by using DataBound event. Use foreach loop to access all item one by one from the list also apply tooltip on each item by the help of Attribute property.

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 …
