Help needed with methode

Hi,
In my methode CustomColumnDisplayText I tried to call
for the function checktype. The purpose of this function
is to check if a string contains a comma (,) or a (.) if so then
false otherwise true. But I don't know how to call for this
function in the customcolumndisplay-event. And the declaration
in the customcolumndisplay-event to devide and multilpy the
value isn't correct either.

 private void gridView1_CustomColumnDisplayText(object sender, DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base.CustomColumnDisplayTextEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Column.FieldName == "Value")
            {
                if ((Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL == false) || (CheckType = true))
                {
                    e.DisplayText = (e.Value / 18).ToString();
                }
                else if ((Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL == true) || (CheckType = false))
                {
                    e.DisplayText = (e.Value * 18).ToString();
                }
            }

        }
        //*-------------------------------------------------------------*//
        static bool CheckType(string value)
        {
            return value.Contains(",") || value.Contains(".");
        }
        //*-------------------------------------------------------------*//

Open in new window

     

ERRORS:

1. Cannot assign to 'CheckType' because it is a 'method group'
2. Operator '/' cannot be applied to operands of type 'object' and 'int'      
3. Cannot assign to 'CheckType' because it is a 'method group'
4. Operator '*' cannot be applied to operands of type 'object' and 'int'      


Who can help me?

Part 1

I'm guessing that 'CheckType' used to be a procedural scope boolean value and then got moved to a function?

The answer is simpler than it looks and is a common mistake (that I see and make in C#)

if ((Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL == false) || (CheckType = true))
                {
                    e.DisplayText = (e.Value / 18).ToString();
                }

Checktype is a Method with parameters but you are calling it as a non-invokable member(property). Also you are using an assignment equals, not a comparison equals.

probably should say something like

if ((Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL == false) || (CheckType (SOMESTRINGVALUE) == true))
                {
                 //see part 2
                }



Part 2

                {
                    e.DisplayText = (e.Value / 18).ToString();
                }
 
I am not familiar with the DevExpress control set but I am presume that e.Value is of type object - you cant mulitply an object by an integer, you have to type cast it first.

Something like this should do it..

                {
                 int eValue = Convert.ToInt(e.Value ); // I think you know what this should actually say!
                    e.DisplayText = (eValue / 18).ToString();
                }


Hows that?

You are welcome Peter.

Gotta love that stupid "Cannot assign to 'CheckType' because it is a 'method group'" error.

Why they can't just say 'you forgot the brackets, dummy' is beyond me ;-)

Have a good day.
