Mapped variables and MapValues

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I've been searching for days for detailed information about what mapped variables are and how they are related to the MapValues method in PersistenceParticipant, but all I can find is information about how to use them, rather than what they are for or when to use them. If I had to guess, I would say that mapped variables are added as write-only values at some point between the CollectValues and MapValues stage, but at what point do we restore these mapped variables? The PurchaseProcess sample application is quite confusing, as it stores the requestForProposal mapped variable in the instance store as well as in the external XML store, but the requestForProposal is reloaded from the instance store without consulting the external XML store, despite being marked as write-only during the save process. What is the correct way to load mapped variables? I imagine that the SQL Server instance store does respect the write-only modifier, yet in the HiringRequestProcess sample, I can't see where the workflow loads the hiringRequestInfo variable from.  I suppose my actual question is this: I have a bunch of business entities which are persisted in a database elsewhere. I would prefer that the workflow not persist its own copy (especially if it ends up trying to persist the whole object graph) but instead reload the entities from the database as necessary. I don't thin

Temporary tables in SQL Server vs. table variables

When writing T-SQL code, you often need a table in which to store data temporarily when it comes time to execute that code. You have four table options: normal tables, local temporary tables, global temporary tables and table variables. I'll discuss the differences between using temporary tables in SQL Server versus table variables.

Word save file on SharePoint via mapped drive


Hi, I have a Document Library mapped to a drive letter. I am able to browse the drive through Windows Explorer. However when I try to save a document to the drive Word returns, 'Unable to connect to the Web server.' .  I have been unable to find any information regarding this error message. If I try to create a document in the Document Library through Windows Explorer and the mapped drive, I get a different error message: 'Unable to create the file 'New Microsoft Office Word Document.docx' There is no user session key for the specified logon session.' After I click OKand refresh the directory, a 0 KB New Microsoft Word Document.docx file has been created. When that file is opened, it is in Read-Only mode.

Defining session variables...



This is a pretty basic question.

I have some code where I need to define a session variable  however it's coming back as Nothing when the code is executed. Here's the code:

' Default Currency

REQCURR = Request.Querystring("p_DCURR")
'If not explicitly specified, try to get it from session

If (REQCURR = "") Then

     If (Session("REQCURR") <> "") Then
          REQCURR = Session("REQCURR")

          'Here is the session variable I'm trying to define:
          Session("REQCAD") = 0
          REQCURR = ""
     End If

End If


So, for some reason that Session("REQCAD") = 0 has no value instead of having a value of 0.

Any thoughts?

Enumerating Variables & Arguments in Rehosted Designer

I'm trying to enumerate the variables and arguments of a workflow after I load it into my rehosted designer.  I see that I can use ActivityMetadata.GetArgumentsWithReflection() and ActivityMetadata.GetVariablesWithReflection() but those require that I have ActivityMetadata to start with.  So the real question is, how do I get the ActivityMetadata once I've done MyWorkflowDesigner.Load(XamlPath);?Thanks in advance.ChuckChuck Berg | Consulting Engineer | Corporate IT - Station Casinos, Inc.

regasm 4.0 generates error for DLL on a mapped network drive

Calling regasm from .NET Framework 4.0 generates an error for a DLL that is on a mapped network share.  This occurs during our debug builds on developer machines (we actually call a utility that wraps around regasm to perform COM-based registration).  The error is: RegAsm : error RA0000 : Could not load file or assembly 'file:///m:\<file being regasmed>' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515) I can work around this issue by modifying regasm.exe.config to include the loadFromRemoteSources element.  This seems like an annoying change for something that seems like a fairly common task. Is there some better way to enable this? Thanks, -Kevin

How to use variables in WCF as return in WCF GET properties?

Hi everyone,   I'm currently working on a project wherein i need to call a WCF web service. The web service has get_<method name> properties. those properties are working fine if the property has assigned a value within them. for example:   public String Description { get { return "Hello from SVC!!"; } }   ^ above will work fine when i call it on my client app.   but if i use a variable value as a return. it will not return the value of the variable (empty/blank). for example:   public class MYSVC : IMYSVC { private String varDescription; public void SetValue(String Description) { varDescription = "Test"; } public String Description { get { return varDescription; } }   ^above will not work. it will only return none.   Did i miss something? also just in case here's how a call those properties in the interface (fyi):       String Description    {        [OperationContract]        get;    }

Global Variables and data types

Hi, I have a small issue with the datatype problems. This is what my scenario is. I have a global variable "Qtr" declared as "Int32" datatype. Next, i have a ActiveXscript with VBScript Language. With the below piece of code. All it does, it will calculate and assign the calculated value to the global variable "Qtr". But due to some datatype conversion problem it is not displaying the Calculated value. It is showing null. But the value in the local variable is getting displayed. Can anyone figure out what the problem is all about. I have the option of taking the String datatype for the global variable but in the next step in the workflow , we have an stored procedure call i.e. an execute sql task where we will be call a stored procedure EXEC sp ? where the parameter datatype is an INT in the database. That is why i am finding problem.  I have used the work around i.e. using SSIS advanced expressions and avoided the parameter mapping and all. Function Main() 'msgbox("test") Dim Qtr Dim currentYear 'Constants qYears = 3 Qtr= (currentYear - qYears) * 10 + 4 msgbox(Qtr) msgbox("Assigning the value to the variable") DTSGlobalVariables("Qstart").Value =  Cint(Qtr) msgbox("Display Value in the variable") MsgBox(DTSGlobalVariables("Qtr").Value)      End Function Can a
