Retrieving out parameter/arguments from MethodInfo.Invoke

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hi everybody.For example, I have a method like this:public int DoSomething(int x, out int z){   z = x + 1;   return x + 2;}Then I invoke this method using MethodInfo.Invoke via reflection:MethodInfo myMethod = this.GetType().GetMethod("DoSomething");int result = myMethod.Invoke(this, new object[] { 5, 0 });The code working fine, I got the result = 7 (which is from x + 2).But how I can get the z ? (which is x + 1) ?Please advise,Thanks,Lok_Tan

How to pass double pointers for COM Interop via MethodInfo.Invoke ?

Hello, I need to make COM IntetrOp at runtime using reflections. My native COM Object's exposed methods have some parameters as pointers (DWORD*) and some double pointers (DWORD**) and some are user defined types(e.g SomeUDTType objSmeUDTType) and its pointer to pointer(i.e. SomeUDTType **pSomeUDTType). I need to pass pointers to pointers. For now how can I be able to populate "object" array as pointers to pointers of SomeUDTType. Working Example:      STDMETHODIMP MyCallableMethod(DWORD *value_1,BSTR *bstrName,WESContext **a_wesContext tlbImp.exe generated output:      DTINIDLLib.RuntimeCallingClass.MyCallableMethod(ref uint, ref string, System.IntrPtr) Regards UsmanMutlithreading

Argument Not Specified For Parameter, too many arguments


I'm working with visual studio 2008 and a sql server express database. I've written some VB code behind and a stored procedure to retrieve data from the DB with multiple selections from a Listbox. I'm getting the following error which appears to be a problem passing 'myString' the list of selected items from the listbox, to the SP. The process works the first time I execute, but when I go back to the list box and select additional records, I get this error...

Procedure or function usp_itemReport has too many arguments specified.


Code Behind:

        Dim numItems As Integer
        Dim numSelected As Array

        Dim myString As String
        myString = ""

        numSelected = ListBox1.GetSelectedIndices()    ' Index of items selected in box
        numItems = ListBox1.Items.Count                      ' Number of items in List box

        Dim li As ListItem

        For Each li In ListBox1.Items
            If li.Selected = True Then
                If myString = "" Then
                    myString = li.Value
                    myString = myString & ", " & li.Value
                End If
            End If

Retrieving JQuery Ajax Parameter in ASHX (Handlers) files

MethodInfo.Invoke performance



I'm using heavily reflection in our business code since we relay on database structures to manage workflows and validations. Methods that I'm invoking usually have known parameters and known return types. Invoke method is slow so I'm wondering does .NET 3.5 offers anything else that is faster. Most called methods are instance methods.

To further clarify my question: I read from my database an ordered sequence of methods that needs to be called. This methods have the same signature and they have to be called in order. This operation is executed many times when the user is active. Since we deploy our solution onto a terminal server every bit of a performance gain is at least 20-50 times multiplied.

How would I transfer the variable from the search page to the profile page, and when I work on the profile page, how can I access that variable?


Use a column as parameter for a sds in another column; gridview


Hola, I have a gridview which is bound to a sds which returns 7 columns and I added two columns from the GUI.  What I want is to fill up the 9th column with DDLs and these  DDLS will get their data from a different sds which is using a stored procedure with a single parameter.  I created the 9th row, used template field, made the sds for 9th row, the stored_procedure, threw a DDL in Item template and all  I need now is to pass a parameter in the first column to the sds in the 9th column.  I can code this but i'm getting tired of aspx.cs :) and would like to do it from the GUI.

Sort by gridview SortExpression parameter via Stored Procedure


I have a gridview that calls data via a stored procedure.  I am unable to enable the gridview columns to be sortable. I need to set the parameter in the Stored Procedure, can someone help me with this?

Here is my gridview:

<asp:GridView ID="AllUsersGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="UserName"
                        GridLines="Vertical" Width="900px" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AllowSorting="True"
                        SelectedRowStyle-Height="30px" CellPadding="4" BackColor="White">

                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="User Name" DataField="UserName" />

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

.NET Column: P/Invoke Revisited


In the July 2003 installment of the . NET column I covered the basics of Win32® interoperation with the Microsoft® . NET Framework (P/Invoke). Based on reader feedback, this topic is worthy of further coverage, so I have decided to revisit P/Invoke in this column.
