I have a date(string) in the form of 4/6/2018 I need to change it to 040618.

Output is: Tue Jan 18 00:20:00 CST 5

I was able to make it work by placing an "/" at the end of the 'from' and 'to' paths.

The follow code only copies the directories but not the directory content.

Example of console output:

[4/3/18 7:09:47:548 CDT] 00000085 SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: file://gvsvr03/Drawings/Release PDF/VendorPrintsSpecsTestReports/AMSAFE/HISTORY/1027
[4/3/18 7:09:47:548 CDT] 00000085 SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: smb://corp.zodiac.lan;srv.drawchg6zsus:Webabc6!@sgai-fs02/qmsattachments$/SupplierDocuments/AM-SAFE INC/HISTORY/1027

So each time round the loop, for each file in the directory, it is simply printing the directory (smbToFile) name and not the file in the directory (smbFile).

Thanks so much for pointing this out. This solved my issue, for now anyway(lol).

There are 368 sub directories in the parent folder do I get 368 of the following:

[3/22/18 10:11:02:136 CDT] 0000009d SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: drawings_PATH: file://gvsvr03/Drawings/Release PDF/VendorPrintsSpecsTestReports/
[3/22/18 10:11:02:363 CDT] 0000009d SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: Directory Name: VendorPrintsSpecsTestReports/
[3/22/18 10:11:02:364 CDT] 0000009d SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: Directory Name: VendorPrintsSpecsTestReports/
[3/22/18 10:11:02:364 CDT] 0000009d SystemOut     O SupplierDrawingList: Directory Name: VendorPrintsSpecsTestReports/
[3 ....

For example, if you have System.out.println(smbToFile) what does it print? If smbFile is a directory with some files/directories in it what gets printed on lines 6, 10 in the above code.

The following will only display the coded directory and not the sub directories.

It is in the WebContent folder of my project. I have tried to place it out side of this folder and then not even the dialog screen will appear.

Bear Bibeault wrote:Does that file, indeed, exist in your web app?

Thanks for your response. Yes it is in the file structure of the JavaScriptSpellCheck folder.
In my web app I need to use a spell checker on a jqGrid input prompt(before the Submit fires).

I have downloaded the JavaScriptSpellCheck files. Copied unzipped folder into the WebContent folder of my web app.

Added the following into the index.jsp:

Added this code in the beforeSubmit function of my jsp file:

When I run the code the SpellCheck dialog box pops up with no words included and the following error appears in console. /JavaScriptSpellCheck/core/Default.ashx

To hold a range of int's you need to track a min and a max and when you go to output the optimized string, if min == max, just output min, else output min-max.

Thanks for all the help.

Here is the code I came up with:

This is my output:

No, the parent is a list of individual Serial#'s.

This is my code for getting the Serial#'s, my code so far:

If the next Serial# is not sequential then use comma as separator and start new block(123-124)

Am looking for ideas and or direction. These are Serial#'s that will go on a report.

If not then it isn't available.
I don't think there's any requirement at all to send it.

How can I view the header content?
Is there a reliable way to get the computer name of the client when a request is made using a web application.

The following always returns the IP address and not the name.
