string formatting

Hi,

While iterating through a loop and building a string is it possible to
format certain string value? the completed string eventually gets passed to
a rich TextBox.

for example:

------------------
string thing = "";
foreach (Dataset.Row row in rows)
{
if ( row.name == "whatever" )
{
thing += row.name; //somehow format the
row.name to bold before it goes into the string
}
thing += row.name;
}
-----------------

Possible?

The string itself isn't bold or anything similar - you need to work out
how to make it bold in the RichTextBox, i.e. applying rich text
formatting.

I would also suggest using a StringBuilder rather than string
concatenation like the above.

I've developed a string-class that holds the string in an array which is a member-variable of the class and that has maximum-size which is con- figurable through a template-parameter. If any operation would grow the string beyond its maximum size, an exeception would be thrown. This kind of string obviously has superior performance over a std::string because there's never any additional memory-allocation. But before I'm going to re-invent...

Having fits transforming an XML string using an XSL file. In the 1.1 version of the framework, I see that the XmlResolver is heavily used in the XslTransform class. However, that looks like I am only supposed to use that only when you have an xml ~file~... not an XML string (my XML is coming from a database field). Is there a cut & dry example out there on how to transform a simple XML string using XSL? -AC

Hi all, I store phone numbers in the database as 123447775665554(input mask is used for input, and some numbers have extensions), and I also know from db if the number is Canadian, US, or some other country.

Potentially I'd have other countries added as well which might have...

Ok, this is driving me nuts... I am using VS.NET 2003 and trying to take an item out of a row in a loosely-typed dataset and place it in a label as a currency. As it is now, I am getting my unformatted data values (as decimals) just fine, so I know there's not a problem with the data retrieval, just the formatting. I have read that this would work: lblPrice.Text = prodRow.ToString("C");
