Hi,

I'm using ASP.NET 2005 with SQL Server.  I need to create an array to store 2 values which are StartDate and EndDate.  The dates will be used as stored procedure parameters to pass to SQL Server. I need to store the StartDate and EndDate into the array.  I created an ArrayList, but was not sure how to go about getting the EndDate value. Do I concatenate the StartDate and EndDate and then retrieve the values?  Could someone show me an example of creating the ArrayList and then retrieving both values using an iteration because I could have more than one StartDate and EndDate values? My code so far is as follows:

‘Assumption:  The ArrayList gets its data by an ADO.NET DataTable.

Dim DateRange As String
DateRange = rdrStartDate + " " + rdrEndDate
                        arrList.Add(DateRange)

Thanks,
Denise

you can create a structure that way:

        Private Structure dates
            Dim StartDate As DateTime
            Dim EndDate As DateTime
        End Structure

Dim DateRange As dates
DateRange.StartDate = rdrStartDate
DateRange.EndDate = rdrEndDate
arrList.Add(DateRange)

An arraylist stores an object. That Object could be anything - including another array or paired object.


                  ArrayList lst = new ArrayList();

                  lst.Add(new string[]{"Start1","End1"});
                  lst.Add(new string[]{"Start2","End2"});
                  lst.Add(new string[]{"Start3","End3"});

                  string[] str;
                  for (int i=0;i<lst.Count;i++)
                  {
                        str = (string[])lst[i];
                        Console.WriteLine("Start Date is: {0}", str[0]);
                        Console.WriteLine("End Date is: {0}", str[1]);
                  }

Hi lem2802:

Thanks for your code.  How do I create the iteration loop to retrieve the values?  I tried the following with no success.

Private Sub TestArrayList()
        Dim pStartDate As dates
        Dim pEndDate As dates
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To arrList.Count - 1
            pStartDate = arrList.Item(0)
            pEndDate = arrList.Item(1)
        Next
    End Sub

Thanks,
Denise

Hi TAD:

Thanks for your code.  How to I get the values?  I tried the following with no success:

Private Sub TestArrayList2()

        Dim paramStartDate As String
        Dim paramEndDate As String

        Dim i As Integer = 0
        Do While (i < lst.Count)
            paramStartDate = lst(0)
            paramEndDate = lst(1)
            i = (i + 1)
        Loop

            p.StartDate = ctype(arrList.Item(i), dates).StartDate
            p.EndDate = ctype(arrList.Item(i), dates).EndDate
         Next
