IE 8 partially cut of my JSON data return from WCF service

  
Hi All, I am not so sure here is the right place to post my issue. I am using ExtJS treepanel and ajax call to wcf webservice and return JSON array. My service return array. If array count is less than 2, then IE partially cut of my JSON data return from WCF service. But FireFox is working fine with same JSON format string. Very interesting thing is that I try to debug with Fildder. so I have to put "." dot in my url "http://localhost{.}:1234/ then It is working fine.   I am testing with IE8. Here is the JSON format return from FF and FireBug. {"result":[{"href":"..\/EMP\/EmployeeSearch.aspx","iconCls":"","id":"8c362443-7bb3-427e-910c-87b391c6abf5","leaf":true,"text":"Employees"}]} Here is the corrupted JSON string retrun from IE using developer tool. {"result":[{"href":"..\/EMP\/E" [OperationContract] [WebInvoke(Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "GetSiteMap", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Wrapped, RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)] [return: MessageParameter(Name = "result")] List<TreeView> GetSiteMap(string node);

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

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

  

Hi.

I have the below SQL which works just fine:

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

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

Can anyone give me a how-to on the JSON part?  I.e., what is different than normal XML outut?


Thanks.

 


Windows Services: New Base Classes in .NET Make Writing a Windows Service Easy

  

Windows services are applications that run outside of any particular user context in Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP. The creation of services used to require expert coding skills and generally required C or C++. Visual Studio .NET now makes it easy for you to create a Windows service, whether you're writing code in C++, C#, or Visual Basic. You can also write a Windows service in any other language that targets the common language runtime. This article walks you through the creation of a useful Windows service, then demonstrates how to install, test, and debug the service.

unable to use wcf service with json in asp.net

  

Hi,

I have developed a wcf service for asp.net ajax client. It includes the following steps.

(1) Created WCF sevice contract with the operation "DoWork()" which will take string as input and retun string as output.

(2)Implemented the above operation contract(attributed the implementation class with aspnetcompatibility requirement as enabled).

(3)Added the webscriptenabled to endpoint in web.config file.

(4)Hosted the wcf servie. 

(5)Downloaded the javascript file from the service.(e.g.,http://localhost/service1.svc/js)

Client

(1)Opend new asp.net webapplication.

(2)Added the downloaded .js file.

(3)Given the scripts path for ajaxscript manager as both .js file and service url.

e.g

<asp:ScriptManager ID="id1"

make json call to send an email

  

the aspx:

<div class="contactSubmit">
                <asp:ImageButton ID="ibSubmit" runat="server" ValidationGroup="vgContact" /></div>


 

the jquery :

$(document).ready(function () {
            // Add the page method call as an onclick handler for the div.
            $(".contactSubmit").click(function () {
                $.ajax({
                    type: "POST",
                    url: "Home.aspx/GetDate",
                    data: "{}",
                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                    dataType: "json",
                    success: function (msg) {
                        // Replace the div's content with the page method's return.
                        $(".contactSubmit").text(msg.d);
                    }
                });
            });
        });


The problem is that I need to use the text in a text box in my webmethod, and I can't because it's static, this results in a compilation error:

[WebMethod]
    public static string SendContactForm()
    {
        Mail.SendMailMessage(NameTextBox.Text);
    }

How to config a SendActivity make it consumes a WCF service?

  
In a ASP.net web project, I have a WCF service and Workflow service and my workflow service want to use the wcf service, so I use the SendActivity to consume the WCF service. I do this in the follow step: 1.Using Add the service reference dialog add the WCF service reference to my project 2.Add a SendActivity to the workflow and config it like this: EndpointConfigurationName:BasicHttpBinding_ISimpleService ServiceContractName:SimpleServices.ISimpleService OperationName:DoWork and set correct parameters.   All this config value I am copyed from the config file. But when I run this project it's always throw exception says "ContractFilter mismatch at the EndpointDispatcher" . But if I directly call the WCF service in code, it's all ok. For demo, I create a very simply WCF service and Workflow service for testing how to config, so I paste all the code here: namespace WFCallService.Services { // NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the interface name "ISimpleService" in both code and config file together. [ServiceContract] public interface ISimpleService { [OperationContract] void DoWork(string workName); } } namespace WFCallService.Services { // NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the class name "Sim

How to make my WCF client send JSON?

  
Hi, I have a WCF Service that accepts and sends JSON objects, defined like the following: [OperationContract] [WebInvoke(Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "/booking/", RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Wrapped)] Int32 booking(order o); now I have used SvcUtil.exe to create a client class and using that, I am trying to access my service - but even though I use "webHttpBinding" with "webHttp" behavior, it always sends it's messages in xml. What do I have to do make my client speak JSON?  

Passing return value from a Web Service to a label in a Form View

  
I am using JavaScript to call a web service. The JS is correctly receiving and passing the web service information. At the moment, the web service returns a country name as a string to a JavaScript alert pop up box as follows:ret = CountryRegionsWebService.GetTranslatedCountryShortName(ddl1_value, ddl2_value, OnComplete, OnTimeOut, OnError);function OnComplete(args) { alert(args); } I want to change this so that web service returns the country name to a label inside an insert item template of a form view. Is there a way to pass in the label variable to the OnComplete function signature and still account for the variable args?, such as: Server Side Declaration of JavaScript ddl2.Attributes.Add("onChange", "JavaScript:OnComplete('" + lab5.ClientID + "', '" + "args" + "');"); Client Side JavaScript function OnComplete(lab5_id, args) { var lab5 = document.getElementById(lab5_id); lab5.innerHTML = args; }  

JSON and 2.0 Web Service

  
Just ramping up on JSON and JQuery and returning data to a ASP.NET web page from a web service using Ajax.  The JQuery part is pretty straight-forward.  However, when trying to return JSON formatted data instead of XML from a 2.0 web service, I'm stuck.  The web service does have the System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService attribute, so I can hit it via JavaScript; however, the web service always...always...returns data in XML format, no matter if I explicitly say I want JSON as the datatype in my JQuery code.  So I don't know if this is an issue with the web service or the JQuery code.  I posted this here, but realize that the category could be incorrect depending on where the issue is.  Is there no way to return JSON data from a 2.0 web service?  It's a production web service, so I can't change the code unfortunately.    

Web Service and JSON input data

  
Hy, I'm try to build a web service who can get in input a JSON string. My web method is: [WebMethod(Description = "Edit Entity")][System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptMethod(ResponseFormat = System.Web.Script.Services.ResponseFormat.Json)]public string ManageEntity(string _DataIn){ // System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(_DataIn);            return "{\"Result\":\"OK\"}";} When I try posting some data to the webservice I get the error "No parameterless constructor defined for type of 'System.String'". Why the system try to deserialize my JSON string? Is possible to simple retrieve the string? Thanks Lorenzo SonciniLorenzo Soncini

wcf returning a list from wcf service - I have lots of locations and I want to return the locations

  

How is it possible to return some kind of list from a wcf serivce, this the method in my wcf service 
my interface:

[OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = "GET",
        ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
        BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Wrapped,
        UriTemplate = "Locations")]
    IList<Location> GetLocations();



 public IList<Location> GetLocations()
    {
        Pazar.Data.Repositories.LocationRepository locRepository = new Pazar.Data.Repositories.LocationRepository();
        return locRepository.GetRootLocations().ToList<Location>();
    }


and this how my GetRootLocations looks like, It returns IQueryable, I wounder if I can maybee return Iqueryable from my svc-service?

public IQueryable<Location> GetRootLocations()
    {
        IQueryable<Location> locations = GetAll().Where(p => !p.ID_Parent.HasValue).OrderBy(p => p.Sequence);
        return locations;
    }




How WCF 4 REST Service Support Form Post As Well As XML and JSON?

  

Using the rest 4 template.  I have a POST method defined, with an object as a parameter.  REST 4 does a great job of automatically mapping both xml and json posts to the method.  I tested this using an HttpClient test application to build and post xml content and then json content. 

I want to also support a standard form post to the method but am having problems!  

I'd like the same method already accepting and converting both xml and json to also work correctly for a form post.  I am testing this by creating an HttpUrlEncoded form in the test client, adding form name/value pairs that match what the method is expecting, and trying to post it.

However I get a 400 Bad Request.  Here's some example code that is returning a 400 bad request:

            var client = new HttpClient();

            HttpUrlEncodedForm form = new HttpUrlEncodedForm();
            form.Add("Id", "99");
            form.Add("Message", "Message test with 'special' chars #!#");
            form.Add("IpAddress", "192.168.1.1");

            var response = client.Post("<valid-uri-here>", form.CreateHttpContent());
            response.EnsureStatusIsSuccessful();

            client.Disp

WCF hosted in a Windows Service, how to make calls to the WCF service from within the service host

  

I have a Windows service that I converted to a WCF service that I want to host in a Windows Service.  I need to do some specific tasks in the OnStart() and OnStop() just like I did when it was just a Windows service.  My original Windows service OnStart() is where I create the main worker thread.  So how do I make a call into my WCF service from within the hosting service? For example in the hosting service's OnStart() I do a host.Open() then I need to call a method in my WCF service but how?
