.NET Reflection: Dynamically Bind Your Data Layer to Stored Procedures and SQL Commands Using .NET M


One major inconvenience of using SQL stored procedures from code is having to match type information. You have to write long wrapper functions around the procedures just to expose the data types. In the .NET Framework, however, the reflection services of the System.Reflection namespace allow you to query rich metadata that describe data types. This article explains how to use reflection in .NET to end your stored procedure nightmares. The author creates four custom classes, including one that generates a SQLCommand object based on the metadata of a method. Using this library, you'll be on your way to automating the generation of stored procedures.

For instance Server1 and Table1 has the most recent data for the past 3 months and Server2 and Table1 has the archived data, so if a user is issuing the startdate & enddate within the recent 3 months it has to use the datasource1 else datasource2 based on the date parameters. How do we do this in SSRS?

Dynamically Centering a Windows Forms Label Control

I'm working on an athletic workout journal application that will include an Interval / Countdown Timer. I plan to build several versions of this application in different technologies (WPF, Web, Phone) but I'm building the first version in Windows Forms. I want the user to be able to dynamically set the size of the "Stopwatch" display font, then resize the form and have the text re-center in the form, taking into consideration the new font size. Stuff like this is easy in HTML, but not so much in Windows Forms. Though I'm still in the early stages I thought I'd share the bit of math that I've come up with and invite any suggestions you might have.

C# data bound combobox: display selected item text in separate label.content


I am new to C# but I'm resisting the urge to run screaming back to VB.NET. I'm working with a WPF application using C# code-behind and a lot of binding to a SQL 2005 database backend.

GOAL: I have a comboBox bound to a tbl_Systems entity which provides a list of systems for user selection. When the User selects a system from the comboBox I want to display the selection's text in a separate Label. The big picture is that several comboBox selections will be used to build a query string that will populate a listbox. So, I want to display these selected values in the Label so the user can see the query string they have dictated.

PROBLEM: When I set the Label content property to the comboBox SelectedItem property the entity tbl_System is displayed in the Label not the comboBox selection text.

SUSPICION: From reading similar examples in VB I suspect that the comboBox SelectedItem is actually a "datarowview" or the C# equivalent. But I don't know how to translate this explanation to C#.

The UI XAML comboBox properties are set as such:
