Data in a web method block

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
[System.Web.Services.WebMethodAttribute(), System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptMethodAttribute()]   public static string[] GetCompletionList(string prefixText, int count, string contextKey) {       // Create array of movies       string[] movies = {"Star Wars", "Star Trek", "Superman", "Memento", "Shrek", "Shrek II"};          // Return matching movies       return (from m in movies where m.StartsWith(prefixText,StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) select m).Take(count).ToArray();   }  Disclaimer: I'm totally new to all this.Problem: The above code works great for me in getting the Autocomplete AJAX control to work. However, what I need is to define the string[] variable outside of the above block. What I'm looking for is the way to define such a variable as a global, or whatever the technical term in asp.net is for a variable that is persistent and recognized wherever it is used in the code-behind.Is this possible, without massive amounts of technical wizardry?

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET


Hi all,

I was rummaging the internet learning aspx and came across the concept of: Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET

It seems great of course. The articles are all early 2003-5 such as


So the question is - is this tech still relevant and should I be using it?



Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 3


E nterprise applications can have a wide variety of data update requirements. Sometimes you need to save multiple rows of changes at once within a single transaction. Other times, the user must be allowed to enter multiple rows of data, send them to the database in a batch; and if a row or two fails, only the rows that succeeded should be committed and remain committed.

A solid data access later (DAL) can benefit an application by hiding redundant tasks, helping handle exceptions more gracefully, helping clean up resources more efficiently, and providing a layer of abstraction from the database.

Sys.Data.DataContext.saveChanges method doesn't send update to server after DataServiceException ex

Hello,I have a page with a simple form that updates a single record in a table in my database.The database is accessed via WCF Data Services. To load and save data from/to the server, I usethe Sys.Data.DataContext object provided by the ASP.NET AJAX library. When the "save" button on theform is clicked, I use the saveChanges method of the Sys.Data.DataContext object to send all changes to the server.Also, at the server side, I use an interceptor that checks the "Price" fields of the record, and throws a DataServiceException exception when the contents of the field is a negative number.Both the JavaScript and the interceptor (in C#) are copied below.Here is the interesting thing:When I enter a negative price in the form, the interceptor throws the exception and my form shows an error message. Good.However, if I then make one of the other fields in the form a bit shorter (for example from "abcd" to "abc"),the saveChanges method doesn't send the data to the server. But it does call the success callback that I passed in to saveChanges, creating the impressionthat the data has been saved. This happens while the Price field is still negative. I used Fiddler to make sure thatno message is sent to the server. Also, the interceptor doesn't get executed.The weird thing is that if I make one of the fields a bit longer instead (for example &q

Different number of data in Report after using Render method.

Calling a method with a class object as parameter data type.

   [WebMethod]    public string GetInfo(Customer inCust)    {        // Code in here    } I have a web service that resides on a remote server. I want to call a public method of theweb service named  "GetInfo". The method is shown above. The web service method expects a class object oftype "Customer". What I did to create a Customer object was to define in my asp.net project my own class named "Customer" which is exactlythe same as the class that belongs to the web service project on the remote server. I then created an instance of Customerand tried to call the web service passing in an object of type customer : my.Service ws = new my.Service(); // Get web service connectionCustomer aCustomer = new Customer();aCustomer.Initialize();ws.GetInfo(aCustomer) // call web service passing in a Customer object The problem is that the compiler gives me the following error: Value of type '_Default.Customer' cannot be converted to 'ws.Class1'. Here Default is refering to my Default.aspx.cs code. Why is this? Do I need to Cast my "aCustomer" class object to a type ofws.Customer ? How do I do that?

jQuery & WCF Data Service - PUT Update - Rejected with 405 Method Not Allowed

I am writing a sample jQuery/WCF Data Service app to utilize OData, however I am getting a status code 405 - Method not allowed when I attempt to update an entity with a PUT Http method. I have configured my WCF Data Service as follows: public static void InitializeService(DataServiceConfiguration config) { config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("jCredentials_PINs", EntitySetRights.All); config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("jCredentials_PINTree", EntitySetRights.All); //config.SetServiceOperationAccessRule("MyServiceOperation", ServiceOperationRights.All); config.DataServiceBehavior.MaxProtocolVersion = DataServiceProtocolVersion.V2; } I am attempting to update the jCredentials_PINs table.

Best method for hiding a tablix when no data exists

Hello, I am using SSRS 2008. We currently have a number of reports which often have several tables stacked one above the other. In many cases the data supplying one or more of these individual tables returns no rows. Rather than inform the user of this using the no rows message options we simply hide the table since there is no reason for displaying the column and field labels with empty data as this is a waste of space depending on the report in question. In our SSRS2005 reports we often checked the primary key of the tables dataset by comparing it to NOTHING, example: Visability: Hidden = IIF(primary_key = NOTHING, True, False) But when we converted these reports from 2005 to 2008 this became unstable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. What I am hoping to find out is the most stable, if not Microsoft-recommended, method for hiding a tablix(table, matrix or rectangle) if there is no data? I have seen the use of the rowcount option, but I would like to determine if this is the preferred practice before implementing it accross the board on our reports. All help is appreciated. Thanks.

Best Data Access Method


I am going to making asp.net 4.0 for first time. I was making my all application in asp.net 2.0 where I was using DAL and BLL method. In that DAL I was making Table Adapter.

I also appreciate if some tutorial for the same.

Kindly advice on which you have own experience.  

TCP Client/Server communication: NetworkStream.Write() send partial data unless close() method is re

Hi to all,
I wrote a simple client-server application that comunicate through NetworkStream class. The problems comes when stream.close() and client.close() methods are called. It look like only the first 10415 bytes are sent once those methods are called. So, if the data to send is more than this size, it is automatically truncated.

If I  remove both stream/client close() methods from the code, the data is fully received whatever the size is. I tried various alternative solutions (the ones marked as comments in the sample code), but none of them works.
The only thing that seems to work is adding a manual delay before the close() methods execute with something like that:

For Counter as integer = 0 to 10

The problem is that after delay I still don't know if all the data has been transfered or not. In addition to that, I will have to wait 10 seconds before sending another request, even if the response is just a few bytes of data. I could change at runtime the number of seconds to wait according to the size of the data to send, but I still think that delay is not a solution and will cause adverse effects.

So, for now the only working solution is to remove both Stream/Client Close() methods from
