The 'DataType' attribute is not declared bug of MS SQL RS still here

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Greetings. I am getting repeated bugs with reporting services that is described here https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=405739&wa=wsignin1.0 In short words, BIDS is saving the report in the wrong format, adding attributes to the tags that dont belong to the schema, and you can no longer open the report with BIDS, you have to carve those attributes out with Notepad, only to find out that next time you're working on it, they come back! This is getting seriously annoying as i virually cannot close my BIDS anymore, each time i want to reopen my project i have to edit it in the notepad!  Threre are words about "microsoft knows about this issue and changed it to "Fixed (External)" but noone knows how to install the fix... Help please.

SQLColumns and SQLColAttributes return different attribute for TIME datatype using SQLNCLI10 driver


Hello everyone,

I am using SQL Server 2008 native driver. When I query the attributes of a TIME column in SQL Server 2008, I see that using SQLColumns() API, I get length as 10 whereas with SQLColAttributes() I get the length as 12.

My application stores the column attributes got from SQLColums() call and use that length during a SQLBindCol(). Since SQLColumns() give me 10 as length, when I bind a buffer of 10 bytes, I get a "numeric overflow" error.

Please let me know if there is some setting that I might do so that attributes returned from SQLColums() and SQLColAttributes() are same.

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

ReadOnly DateTime attribute stores correct date but only retrieves DateTime.MinValue on Delete


Hey everyone,

I have a dynamic data site that stores Event data using LINQ-to-SQL. When someone requests an event, it is first stored as a PendingEvent (which is a child of Event) with a column/attribute called receivedAt, which is [ReadOnly(true)] and which is assigned in InsertEvent as shown.

        partial void InsertEvent(Event instance)
            instance.requestedAt = DateTime.Now;




This works fine. The event displays with the correct receivedAt date, and it's correct in my database. It shows up just fine on my Display, Edit, and List pages. However, if I try to delete, the receivedAt in the instance (retrieved with my debugger) in my delete function is 01/01/0001 12:00am, also known as DateTime.MinValue. My other dates appear correct.

If I remove "ReadOnly(true)" from the received at, everything works fine. Why won't "ReadOnly" allow me to have a time?
Thanks in advance,



I forgot to mention why I care. I can't submit the instance to be deleted because DateTime.MinValue is outside SQL's available datetime, so I get a SQL error. The delete also takes place in a custom dele

what are the possible values for the UIHint attribute in DynamicData


All --

Please help.

I need to know-- what are the possible values for the UIHint attribute in DynamicData?

I am using DotNet 3.5 and VisualStudio 2008.

I know that I can use the name of each *.cs file in the "DynamicData\FieldTemplates\" folder BUT what other names are available?

For instance, in DynamicData Futures, I have seen UIHint[("IntegerSlider")] which I think comes from Ajax BUT there is no such FieldTemplate so where is it getting that resolution?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Store Attribute to string

Hello,I have been trying to store an xml attribute value to a string and I cannot seem to get it to work.  I start off pulling an XML node from a SharePoint web service. XmlNode user = usergrpService.GetUserInfo("domain\\user"); This seems to work because if I assign user.InnerXml to a text box then I can see the contents of the user.  So then I try to get the value.I have tried a combination of the following with /'s, @'s, User/ID, User@ID, /User/ID, /User@ID, etc.  String userID = user.Attributes["ID"].Value; String userID = user.SelectSingleNode("ID").Value; Each time I get an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error.  If I can read the InnerXml then why can I not get a single attribute?-Eric
