How to expose an enum type to a client via WCF if it isn't used as a param type in any service oper

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
Hi,   I want to 'expose' an enum type from my server via WCF so that my client can access it. This happens automagically if I use the enum as a parameter type within a service operation, however, what if the particular enum isn't part of any service operation?   In other words, I've defined serveral enums within my Server that are quite useful to my client (even though they don't appear in any of my paramter declarations for the service operations).   The only way I can get this to work is simply create dummy service operations that contains these enum's as arguments. The MEX page then exposes these types for my client to use, but this seems a bit naff.   Thanks   Paul.

Expose data contract used in two services as a single type on client side?


I have a .dll that contains my data contracts and I reference this dll in two different services.

Now, on the client side I don't want to add this dll because I need both WPF-clients and Silverlight clients. So, what I want is to be able to use a single data contract on the client side and not with different namespaces for the different services. As I understand this should be possible but I don't know how.

Can someone explain how I can generate a single data contract on client side that can be used for calls to both services?

Thanks for help!

Cannot register a service type without attaching the source assembly to the host process

I'm wondering if there is any way I can register a service type without attaching the source assembly to the host process. When I register the service type, the source assembly (which has the type) cannot be written.   I appreciate your attention.. 

Error Build: Type or namespace could not be found, when referencing a web service

Hello, I'm new in writing C# application in Visual Studio 2008. I'm currently writing a web application for CRM 4.0 Reporting Service rendering. I reference my web application to our Reporting Service web service http://reportservername /ReportServer/ReportExecution2005.asmx and name it 'RSWebReference'. Then I want to reference it in my code: Using RSWebReference; Not sure why, but I cannot build my solution, saying "The type or namespace name 'RSWebReference' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)". I read this thread in http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/74f70e30-83e8-4817-b5e0-7729450730a1 that the website probably is using .net 1.1, and I should change it to .net 2.0. However, I think the website is already using 2.0. Is it probably because I'm using VS 2008? How can I tell and change if the website is using 1.1 or 2.0? Or could I be doing something wrong? Thanks in advanced for your help! -Elizabeth K.

Determining client type (Word/SharePoint UI)

Hi, When a user edits a document using word or SharePoint UI, I need to determine type of a client: Word or SharePoint UI. In my event handler, I need to take a specific action if he is updating a document using Word. The specific action to take is to email the user if his update violates our business rules. Currently we are not able to display the error message if he is using Word (see related thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/b322dc52-0158-40ef-90f0-dc6cac13fc10) Is there a way to do this? I could not find any member of SPItemEventProperties class which gives me a clue about it. There is a Context member I could not use anyway.

How To "Upload a new document template" to Content Type via Web Service

I hope someone can help me. Let me begin by saying that I'm not a programmer; so I 'may' not get the terminology exactly right, but hopefully someone will know what I mean. I am using SharePoint 2010 along with a 3rd party application that I'm using for creating, managing and executing workflows.  The workflow application I'm using is Nintex Workflow 2010.  As such, I can only use functions, services, commands...etc...that are offered to me by that application. Anyway, what I am trying to do is simply replace a document template that is being used for a particular content type with another document template. For this I believe I need to use the Webs.UpdateContentTypeXmlDocument Method.  More information is provided here (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/websvcwebs.webs.updatecontenttypexmldocument.aspx). The Webs.UpdateContentTypeXmlDocument method requires two parameters..."contentTypeId" and "newDocument". "contentTypeId" - I have got the Content Type ID by clicking on the content type and viewing the URL shown in my browser.  So, I am confident that my content type id is correct and is "0x010100C392CF11DE923A4E8AB9018B0A42119303". "newDocument" - The MSDN article states...'A string that represents the XML document to replace the existing XML document.".  To be honest, I'm not 100%

Analysis Service Oracle Number inconsistent Data Type for TABLE or Named Query

Dear Gurus, I'd VERY OLD PROBLEM. And I believe it addressed since 2006. When I design DataSource Views from Oracle Data Source. I found it return different oracle number data type for TABLE or NAMED QUERY   Provider Data Type Column Data Type Data Source View Data Type Oracle OLE DB Provider (OraOLEDB.Oracle.1) Table Number System.Int64   View Number System.Decimal   Named Querey Number System.Decimal Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (MSDAORA.1) Table Number System.Double   View Number System.Double   Named Query   1 System.Int64   Named Query   1.1234 System.Int64 Althought I know I can fix IT via MANUALLY EDIT DATASOURCE VIEW XML SOURCE. But I don't think this is a better solution. Is anybody have ideas ?  Wilson

Web Service ParserError Could not create type

Getting error message with our web service: Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately. Parser Error Message: Could not create type 'ATGIntegration.B2CBlueprintOMSIntegrationWSBinding'. Source Error: Line 1: <%@ WebService Language="vb" CodeBehind="Service.asmx.vb" Class="ATGIntegration.B2CBlueprintOMSIntegrationWSBinding" %>   Two versions of this web service installed on a server (one for development) with the only difference being the web.config file. Web service worked without error for over a year. Recently made some changes to the code, compiled and copy and pasted bin files to the bin folder for the development web service. Then this error appeared. Then I put back the original bin files but same error. At this time the live web service was still working. Later I copied bin folder from live to dev and that broke live. I can fix this error by rebooting the machine, accessing the web service in error, making any change to the web.config file and finally accessing the web service again. The problem is that this error re-appears after a random period of time for no obvious reason. I follow the process again to fix. I have done this process 8 times now. Both dev

How to use return JSON object from web service as a declared Type?

Hi, I just hit the following issue: I am calling a web service that returns a serialized JSON object let's say: __type, FirstName, LastName (.net object Person with properties FirstName and LastName). __type's value is Test.Person I have created a JS object using Type.registerNameSpace/registerClass called Demo.Person and it is registered on the page using the ScriptManager. Everything is working fine; I am able to get data from the server on the call back. Is it possible to make the returned object from the web service be an instance of the declared JavaScript Demo.Person class? The idea would be to call a method like result.getFullName() on the client side without having to copy all the properties. This is just a simple scenario for more complex objects.   Thanks,   Teo

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

Hi all,   I have a strange behavior with my forms. The infopath template is defined as Content Type for my Form library, in the advanced settings I have checked "Display as a Web page" for the "Opening browser-enabled documents" setting. Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?

How to insert SQL2008 date data type using ADODB.Recordset and Native Client?



I am working with a classic ASP application that we are trying to keep hobbling along while it gets rewritten.  The underlying database has been upgraded many times and is currently running on SQL Server 2008.

Recently a column of table was updated from a smalldatetime (with a check constraint to ensure it didn't have any time values) to simply the date type, but the code now does not work.  I was originally using SQLOLEDB, and was confident that treating the date as a string would be find with our client.  Unfortunately it does not, nor does it work using the SQLNCLI10 client.

This is the stripped down code:

Set adoConnection = aspServer.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
adoConnection.Open "Provider=SQLNCLI10"  ' Details Removed
Set adoRS = aspServer.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
adoRS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
adoRS.Open "SELECT * FROM TestTable WHERE id = 0", adoConnection, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText
adoRS("datecolumn") = "09/20/2010"

On the update line, I get the following error:

Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0 error '80040e07'

Cannot create unknown type when loading WF Service from loose Xaml with ActivityXamlServices


I am trying to host a WF4 (RC) Service dynamically. I have a test solution with two projects. The first is a declarative workflow service library with one root Flowchart activity in it, and a simple custom code activity. The workflow service library does not depend on any other custom assemblies or references. The second is my host app, which in my test solution is just a console application.

In my host app, I am attempting to the use ActivityXamlServices to load the Xaml for the workflow service into an activity, and then use the WorkflowServiceHost to fire up a workflow instance using that activity.

As soon as I try to new up the WorkflowServiceHost object, I get this exception...

Cannot create unknown type '{clr-namespace:DeclarativeServiceLibrary1}CodeActivity1'.

If I remove CodeActivity1 from my Flowchart designer, everything runs fine. If I add a direct reference to the workflow service project from my host project and then create a WorkflowServiceHost using an instance of my Flowchart activity instead of the activity created from the Xaml, it also works fine.

It seems to not like using my CodeActivity for some reason when loaded dynamically.

Parser Error Message: Could not create type 'Service'.

I don't know how to fix this.

svcutil /metadata - how to export metadata for service contract that has generic type



I am using svcutil /metadata to get metadata for a WCF service project assembly, the service class implements the IChildServiceContract below, and the IChildServiceContract interface implements a base interface which accept a generic type.

public interface IChildServiceContract : IServiceBaseContract<string>

I can generate metadata for IChildServiceContract , I am curious and also want to try generate meta data for base interface, an error come up which seems have problem with the generic based contract:

There was an error exporting the contract loaded from the type: xxx.xxx.xxx.IServiceBaseContract`1

Is it possible to generate metadata in this situation?


Thanks in advanced
