Increment for SQL value RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    This might be a rather noob question but i'm still very new to the language.

    This is the situation...I have connected to my Oracle database and grabbed an INT number i wanted and display into my form textbox.No prob thus far...But i want it to +1 or increment and at lost of how to do so.

                        OracleCommand cmdOracle = new OracleCommand(localSQL, localConnection);  
                        cmdOracle.CommandType = CommandType.Text;  
                        OracleDataReader drOracle = cmdOracle.ExecuteReader();  
                            if (drOracle.Read())  
                            {addlocaidBox.Text = drOracle.GetOracleValue(0).ToString();} 

    my code look like this i've tried addlocaidBox.Text = drOracle.GetOracleValue(0).ToString()+1; which only adds a 1 after the number...

  • Never used the Oracle way of doing things as I tend to use SQLClient but what you're doing there is concatenating a string togather. If you want to simply add 1 to the number then you must convert it into an int like:

    System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToInt32(drOracle.GetOracleValue(0) + 1).ToString());

    Replace the messagebox with your textbox control. What were doing here is converting the value to an int32 and then incrementing it by 1 followed by stringing it as it will cause an error saying unable to convert int to string. This will be shown depending on how strict your compiler settings are.

  •  Like you guessed OnamC bumped into errors...

    addlocaidBox.Text =(Convert.ToInt32(drOracle.GetOracleValue(0) + 1).ToString()); 
    It prompts...
    System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'Oracle.DataAccess.Types.OracleDecimal' to type 'System.|Convertible'.
    at System.Convert.ToInt32(Oject value)

    addlocaidBox.Text = (drOracle.GetOracleValue(0) + 1).ToString(); 

    The underlined section got a compilation error of
    Operator '+' cannot be applied to operands of type 'object' and 'int'

    addlocaidBox.Text = (drOracle.GetOracleValue(0) )+1.ToString(); 

    But resulted in the number with a 1 behind it...

  • I've got it working by using this...
    addlocaidBox.Text = OracleDecimal.Add(drOracle.GetOracleDecimal(0),1).ToString();

    Thanks OnamC for u're suggestions.
