Use a generic type parameter with a GetBody<>

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
I have a generic messaging system which can pass any type of message around.  I have put the type of object in the Message Header so that I know when I receive it what type I need.  Is there any way to take the string that contains the name of the type and use that in the MessageReceived.GetBody<>. It would be nnice to be able to do that instead of a messy if else checking the string to know message types and then hard coding the Type in the GetBody.   Thanks in advance    needbrew

How can I access a Type with generic parameter in XAML

Need Syntax To Make Results of LINQ Union Return Non-Generic Type



I have the below SQL which works just fine:

SELECT     Message, CreateDate, AccountId, AlertTypeId
FROM       dbo.Alerts
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT Status, CreateDate, AccountId,
                          (SELECT     10 AS Expr1) AS AlertTypeId
FROM         dbo.StatusUpdates
WHERE AccountId = PassedInParameter

I have been going about trying to convert the above into a LINQ method and am having problems with return types.
As the above SQL illustrates, I am querying two distinct LINQ tables - Alerts and StatusUpdates -
and then attempting to perform a Union on them. In order to do the union in LINQ, I have to have agreeing types. So, I
am using "var" to make the results of "alerts" and "updates" generic before the union.  

public IList GetStatusUpdatesAsAlertsByAccountId<T>(Int32 accountId)
            using (WorkbookDataContext dc = _conn.GetCont

type object parameter



I have a problem I can't figure out.

I've been trying to add a listbox with multi select enabled as a parameter to my select statement in sqldatasource.

So i created a function like this :

string strItemTypes = "";
foreach (ListItem li in lbItemType.Items)
   if (li.Selected)
      strItemTypes += "," + li.Value;
strItemTypes = strItemTypes.Substring(1);

which gives me the selected items like this for example : "1,2,3"...
Then I've been trying to add it to my sql select statement :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name, tblStockItems.Description, tblStockItemTypes.TypeItem, tblStockItems.Notes FROM tblOfficesItems INNER JOIN tblStockItems ON tblOfficesItems.fkItem = tblStockItems.idItem INNER JOIN tblStockItemTypes ON tblStockItems.fkTypeItem = tblStockItemTypes.idTypeItem WHERE tblStockItems.fkTypeItem IN ( @fkTypeItems )

using a hiddenfield with a controlparameter of type=object
but it just don't seem to work, seems like the data just won't bind or something and I don't get any errors so I'm confused!!

then i tried this :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name

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?

Is it possible to pass an array of values, or a custom type as a parameter?


I am using a web service as a datasource.  When I create my report I would like to pass

Reflection: Type.GetMethod using int for enum parameter



we are using a "device system" here which is using reflection to invoke methods.

Consider this class:

public class Test
  public void SetDayOfWeek(DayOfWeek day)


MethodInfo m =
    BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.Public,
    new Type[] { typeof(int) }, null);

m is null - probably because I am passing an int as the enum parameter DayOfWeek.

Is there any way to have an int be accepted as enum parameter in such a lookup?

Service Reference: return type converted to a "ref" parameter



I created a WCF service using Message Contracts. One of the operations in the service takes in an entity (embedded in a message contract) and returns an updated version of the entity:

[MessageContract(WrapperName = "SaveCustomers")]
public partial class SaveCustomersRequestMessage
 public EWADemo.DataContracts.Customers Customers

[MessageContract(WrapperName = "SaveCustomersResponse")]
public partial class SaveCustomersResponseMessage
 public EWADemo.DataContracts.Customers Customers

Specifying a parameter in a matrix filter - the data type automatically changes to 'text' when it



When specifying a parameter in a matrix filter (Report Builder 2) the data type automatically reverts to 'text' when it should be 'date/time'.  Removing the parameter and re-adding it displays it correctly as 'date/time' but this isn't saved when clicking 'OK'. 

The problem only becomes apparent when the parameter is set to 'allow multiple values'.  Once this is selected the report throws up the following error:

"An error has occured during report processing. The processing of FilterExpression for the tablix 'Tablix1' cannot be performed.  Cannot compare data types System.String and System.Object[]. Please check the data type returned by the FilterExpression."

Is this a bug with Report Builder 2 or is there something wrong with my report model?

Any help/guidance greatly appreciated.

C# why class cannot derive from type parameter?


Unlike C++, why template class can not be derived from type parameter in C#

public class FeatureObject <Interface> : FeatureBase, Interface


it give compiler error: cannot derive from 'Interface' because it is a type parameter.

Any reason?




Convert string value to type and pass as type parameter.



In the below code... i am getting all filenames from a directory.  parsing out the directory names & the .vb extension. . . then converting those filesnames to classes.  Every file in the LPCriteria direcotry is its own class with a "Evaluate" function.

The problem comes in here:

Dim boolFlagged As Boolean = CType(MyInstance, objType).Evalua

Because the "objType" comes up as "type 'objType' is not defined".   the parameter requested is "Object as Type".  But i dont know the type, as it is really the name of the file...       any ideas how i get this parameter passed in?   Thanks! :)

Dim strPath As String = System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory()
Dim files As String() = System.IO.Directory. _
     GetFiles(strPath & "App_Code\GeneralClasses\LPCriteria\", "*")
