Change Sqldatasource or LINQ to SQL into a DataSet? [C#]

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi Everyone,I've saw a couple of threads on here and on different sites around this area but none I've tried have seemed to work.What I'm struggling to achieve is, I want to take a set of results attained by either a SqlDataSource or a LINQ to SQL Method and feed them into a DataSet. Why? This is because I have downloaded an example of a repeater which has paging programmed on it, but in the example it uses the DataSet.ReadXML method to read a pre-defined set of results in an XML file. As my results are constantly changing I thought it would be a good idea for the DataSet to attain them from the previous mentioned ways.I've lost count at the number of ways I've tried it, from setting up SQLConnection method seperately and the QS set as a 'string' then passing that through etc. to simply trying Dataset Items = PartialClass.GetAll(); - Which throws back Generic<List> cannot be converted to DataSet - or something close to that.I'm working from an example and incorporating it into my own project.Below is the code I'm trying to get working:C#:protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { // Call the ItemsGet method to populate control, // passing in the sample data. ItemsGet(); } public void ItemsGet() { // Read sample item info from XML document into a DataSet DataSe

LINQ to DataSet in .NET 4.0 - an unwelcome change


This worked in .NET 3.5 but it does not compile in 4.0

var allergies =  from allergy in typedDataset.allergy
where allergy != string.Empty

In 4.0, I had to cast the typed dataset to IEnumerable<> using the extension method Cast<>

var allergies = from allergy in typedDataset.allergy.Rows.Cast<TypedDataSet.allergyRow>()
  where allergy.drug != string.Empty
  select allergy;

What motivated this change?  It's much less elegant now.  The compiler should take care of the messy stuff.  Will this be fixed?

SqlDataSource how to change the stored procedures at run time



Is it possible to change the select, insert and update stored procedure of an SqlDataSource at run time. I don't mean to change the definition of the stored procedure, but I mean to change the assignment, i.e. To change the select stored procedure from "selectSP1" to "selectSP2" at run time. Is it possible?

dropdownlist bound to sqldatasource adds items instead of replacing on change



I have a series of dropdownlists on webform in ASP 4.0. The first drop down is filled upon load, and then when a user selects a value from that list, it populates the second dropdown. To accomplish this, I have a SQLdatasource with a parametersource of the first drop-down list control. This works great, except when a user changes their selection from the first drop down. It performs the query, but then adds the list of items to the ones that were already there from the previous selection, instead of replacing it with the new data. Here is the code:

 <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMajor" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="majortext" 
      DataValueField="majorkey" AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
         <asp:ListItem Value="0">Select Major</asp:ListItem>
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlReq" runat="server" DataMember="DefaultView" 
      DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataTextField="req" DataValueField="admreqkey" 
            AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True">
                <asp:ListItem Value="0">Sel

Need to Change a Query String in a DataSet

I need help in pointing me in the right direction...   I have a microsoft Report (ViewDelete.rdlc) that is feeding from a DataSet(ViewDeleteDataSet.xsd). A Web Form has been created with 3 Textboxes: -Search by VehicleNr -Search By VIN -Search By TagNr The Same Web Form as Microsoft ReportViewer loading the above mentioned report.   What Needs to Happen: 1. User entered search information into one of the textboxes and clicks Search 2. Query string for the Report is updated to list only the information the user is wanting to see and reloads the report based on this query.   I have been searching for about 4 hours with no luck on how to do this.  I maybe way off on how this should work, can someone help get me going?

Change connection string of Linq to Sql entities

Hi all.I have a solution which uses Linq to SQL Data Classes to acced the db. I have a project for my domain objects in my solution, which is a class library and has the dbml file. When I set up the dmbl using the wizard, Visual Studio created an app.config file on that project with the connection string. It also creatting a settings file with the same info. I've noticed that if I change the connection string in the settings file, the app.config gets updated, which is the expected behaviour.However, I'm having a problem when I deploy my web site to the production server. I already set the app.config file's Build Action to "Content", and also set Copy to ouput directory to "Always". Nevertheless, when I install the web site and change the connection string in the app.config file, it still takes the old connection string, so obviously I get an error. I've found that it only works if I change it with in Visual Studio and then compile, but of course that's not an optimal solution, because any change in the production db server would mean I have to change my project's assembly, thus generating a new version.Any thing I'm missing? What do I have to configure so that the assembly takes the connection string form my app.config file directly after I deploy?Thanks a lot.

Create dataset from LINQ query of DataView


Is there a straightforward way to create a dataset after querying a dataview?  The query itself returns DataRowView objects, which I cannot get to work with CopyToDataTable().

The query looks like:

detailTableQuery = From rowView As DataRowView In dvQueryView _

Order By sSortOrder _

Select rowView _

Skip nQuerySkipRow _

Take nQueryCountRows


I only want a small s

Selecting radio buttons in a gridview with dataset from Linq Query


Hi Everyone!

I've got a gridview that will allow clients to edit options they've already entered on another page.  The gridview has three radio buttons in it each with a value of 1,2,3.  The option value in the dataset is 1,2 or 3 respectively.  I would like to have the radiobutton with the corresponding value selected in the gridview so they can see what they previously chose and will then be able to edit, if they wish.

How do I do this? 

Here's my code so far:

Dim clientOption = (From c In dc.ClientOptions _
                                 Where c.clientID = userClientID _
                                 Select New With {c.clientOptionID, _
                                                  c.optionWording, _

            'Now Populate Gridview 1 with set options
            If clientOption Is Nothing Then
                Label1.Text = "There are currently no set options to edit."

                GridView1.DataSource = clientOption
                Label1.Text = "Edit set options."
            End If
