XCData converted to XText when using WCF

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
I am sending a XElement with WCF from a server to a client. In the Server my XElement contains a child of the type XCData. On the client side I receive a XElement that contains a child of the type XText. The value of the XText is still the same as the value I had in the XCData element but the type changed from XCData to XText. So somehow the XCData gets converted to a XText when I send the data to the client using WCF. Did anyone experience the same problem? What can I do that I receive a XCData object as I had on the server side and not a XText.

Got a problem with CGI - can it be converted to asp.net?


Ok, what I want to do is take input from a simple web post that used to be in CGI format and post it into my database. I am figuring using .net would be cleaner and easier to maintain. However, I have no clue how to convert this to .net. I could use some help please...thanks :)  The script below doesn't error out but it also doesn't insert either... The script reads like this:

use strict; 
use warnings; 
use CGI qw(:standard); 
use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser); 
use DBI qw(:sql_types); 
my $title = 'Reading List'; 
my $start = 40; 
print header(), start_html($title),
h1({-style=>"font-size:1.2em"}, $title);
my $value = param("value");
print "'value' param = $value"; 
my $dbName = "DATABASE"; 
my $dbHost = ""; 
my $dbUser = "user"; 
my $dbPass = "pass"; 
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$dbName:$dbHost", $dbUser, $dbPass, { RaiseError => 1 }) or die "Die: $DBI::errstr\n";
my @fields = param();
my @values = param(my $variable);

Sorting a ListBox or ComboBox on a Converted Value

Is it possible to apply a Converter to the SortDescription of a CollectionViewSource?  My ViewModel contains a List<> of a class that contains an enum and a Boolean.  My XAML displays a multi-select ListBox, showing the localized names of the enum values using a Converter in the View, and binds each ListBoxItem's IsSelected to the Boolean in the members of the bound List<>.  That's working.  Now I want to sort the ListBox items by those localized enum names, without reordering the List<> in the ViewModel.  Is this possible, and if so, how can it be done?

Converted reports don't work anymore in VS2010

Hi, I have an web application which in converted from vs2008 to vs2010. This app. has one simple reports, which is also converted. Now I have a few problems.The converted report doesn't render anymore. Somehow the dataset I used is not visible to the report anymore. So I decided to delete this datasource and create a new one, using the new interface in VS 2010. The annoying with this is that the new dataset, which is created when I follow the wizard, in the root of the application. As soon as I move this dataset to a folder (in my case the DataSet-folder), the reports doesn't see the fields anymore. So I copied the dataset back to the root, to solve this problem.However, when I render the report, i got an error message saying "A data source instance has not been supplied for the data source 'name-of-the-dataset'"I tried to search the inet, but I cannot find any possible solution.Does anyone of you know how to solve this issue? Or provide me with some links showing good examples.Sorry, but I was able to find the datasource problem myself. What I still would like to know if it is possible to change the location of the DataSet. I don't like the dataset to be in the root of my application.TIA

how do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion

How do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion? Via the SDK I have been able to code a c# workflow that converts word files in a Sharepoint 2010 Document Library (docx,dox, word.xml) to PDF successfully but want to pass in an xml+xsl file to this engine if possible. Actually I have xml, xsl, and if needed xsl-fo files to deal with but would be happy if I could figure out how to make the Document Conversion engine do the xml+xsl transform and then send that to a doc file in Sharepoint.    

Object of type Sys.UI._Time' cannot be converted to type Sys.UI._Timer

I have a main page with several menu choices, one of which launches an ajax enabled window.  The following pattern occurs: If I: 1) Launch site 2) Select menu choice listed on master page that is not ajax enabled 3) Select menu choice that launches ajax enabled popup. 4) close pages All is OK. If I repeat the steps, but in step 2 I select an ajax enabled page and them launch popup, I get the following error: Message: Sys.ArgumentTypeException: Object of type 'Sys.UI._Timer' cannot be converted to type 'Sys.UI._Timer'. I have spent days on this and have been unable to solve it.  If I remove the ajax ToolkitScriptManager and update panels from any of the pages and launch the popup, it works. Can anyone offer some guidance? that are not ajax enabled and then selethat includes an ajax enabled popup window.  T

Web Service Response Question: < and > getting converted to > and >


Hi there,

I created a asmx web service which returns a string as response. The return response is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
 <string xmlns="https://xyz.com"> <result>Success</result></string> 
 But when the client is doing http post they are getting the following response on their side:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
 <string xmlns="https://xyz.com"> &lt;result&gt;Success&lt;/result&gt;</string> 
What should i be doing so that the client sees < and > instead of &lt; and &gt; ?

SharePoint add converted document as new version on original file



I am implementing a custom SharePoint Document Converter. What I want is the Document Converter Framework to add the converted document as a new version of the original document.

In other words: I want to convert "test.doc" into "test.pdf" and "test.pdf" must not be added as a new file (listitem), but as a new version of "test.doc".

How can I accomplish this?

Value of type 'Integer' cannot be converted to 'System.IntPtr'


I am receiving an error with a line of code I have learnt from a tutorials site (after converting it from C# to VB):

Dim thumb As System.Drawing.Image = image.GetThumbnailImage(CInt(Math.Truncate(imgWidth)), CInt(Math.Truncate(imgHeight)), Function() False, DirectCast(0, IntPtr))

The error relates to the "IntPtr" part, and reads:

"Value of type 'Integer' cannot be converted to 'System.IntPtr'"

Strangely, when this code was contained in a different class, there was no issue with it! I have imported the following:

Imports System.Collections
Imports System.Collections.Specialized
Imports System.Configuration
Imports System.Text
Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions
Imports System.Web
Imports System.Web.Caching
Imports System.Web.SessionState
Imports System.Web.Security
Imports System.Web.Profile
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts
Imports System.Web.UI.HtmlControls

Any ideas?
