Get the first record in SQL Compact 3.5 SP2

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I am developing a database application for smart devices using VS2005 and SQL Compact 3.5 Compact SP2

I am tring to get the first record in a table named Customer2 and I tried many techniques for that

I tried to use FIRST() function, TOP, and MIN() function and failed to get it

Here is my query using MIN:

SELECT     [Customer Name], [Account Reference], House, [Meter No.], [Plate No.], Address
FROM         Customer2
WHERE     ([Customer ID] =
                          (SELECT     MIN([Customer ID]) AS EXPR1
                             FROM         Customer2 Customer2_1))

I hope expertise correct me if I missed something

Thank you very much

Summary: Learn how to make your applications use bar code scanners in a generic way-ndependent of the specific bar code scanners that are used on different devices. Using the design patterns Façade and Factory, the implementation not only supports multiple bar code scanners, but it also makes it easy to add support for other bar code scanners.

Gridview Edit on Searching of Record


using Asp.net c#

sql server

i am searching a record from my database and displaying it in gridview now i want the comments should be updated as per the record which is being searched

For E.g if record No.3 is searched then only i can update record no.3 and i don't want rest of data to be shown

now what is happening when i click on edit my whole table is being displayed

this is bcuz i made one method gridfill() which i m calling everytime if i m doing grid row editing,row cancelling and row updating

how i can resolve this thing

my code

 protected void GridView2_RowEditing(object sender, GridViewEditEventArgs e)
        GridView2.EditIndex = e.NewEditIndex;


 protected void GridView2_RowUpdating(object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
        string id = GridView2.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[0].Text;
        TextBox t;
        t = (TextBox)GridView2.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[2].Controls[0];
        string query = "update user1 set comments=@comments where id=@id";
        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connstr);
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, con);

Does this look correct for saving a file/ new record to a database


So thank you for all your help so far, So I think i got this right,
but would like for you all to look it over to see if there is any
areas I might run into trouble with:

//using asp.net mvc 2
the table (sql server 2005, using entities framework)
table fields
"Pattern_Media_GUID  uniqueid 
"Pattern_GUID  uniqueid
"Media varbinary(max)  
"height int
"Width int
"Media_Type String (50)

the form:
<h2> Add Media to this pattern</h2>
<% Html.EnableClientValidation(); %>
<% Html.BeginForm("AddMedia", "Pattern", new { id= Model.Pattern_Guid} , FormMethod.Post, new {enctype = "multipart/form-data"}); %>
    <%: Html.Label("height") %>
    <%: Html.TextBox("height") %>

    <%: Html.Label("width") %>
    <%: Html.TextBox("width") %>

    <%: Html.Label("Media") %>
    <input type="file" id="Media" name="Media" />
    <input type="submit" name=

Why show only one record?



// Update these variables to values whatever you are storing in your table
        // If you are storing as CARD NUMBER, update this Card Number Attribute Name to CARD NUMBER
        string strCardNumberAttributeName = "Credit card number";
       // string strCardTypeAttributeName = "1";
        string strExpiryDateAttributeName = "Expiry date";
        DataTable dtPaymentDetails = new DataTable();

        string queryString = "SELECT tbl_Payments.PaymentId, tbl_PaymentDetails.AttributeName, tbl_PaymentDetails.Value, tbl_Payments.PaymentType FROM tbl_Payments INNER JOIN tbl_PaymentDetails ON tbl_Payments.ID = tbl_PaymentDetails.PaymentId WHERE ATTRIBUTENAME IN ('" + strCardNumberAttributeName +
                                   "','" + strExpiryDateAttributeName + "') ORDER BY PaymentId";

        string connectionString = "data source=.\\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;" +
                                           "AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\\BurnbetDatabase.mdf;User Instance=true";
        using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
            SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand(queryString, connection);
            SqlDataReader reader = command.ExecuteR

Can this code be setup to run against the whole database instead of just 1 record at a time?


We have made some changes to this code to start capturing 1 new field of data and updating it as new records are added. But there is currently about 120,000 records more or less.. those records of course dont have the new field populated with anything..

We would like to run this logic that already in place and run it against the tables to update the fields 1 time. I think to make it easier, if it can be setup to expect the "valueTwo" variable, so that we can run it againt the individual codes instead of doing all the records at one time.. there are codes that only have a few records, so it would be best to test initially against the small code group.


            strSqual = "insert into trans (trans_type_name, trans_date,sys_id,mod_user_id,show_ind, remoteCode, techName) values('" & valueTwo & "','" & TransDate & "',"&strSystemID&", 1,'T', '" & dbQuote(strUser) & "', '" & strTechName & "')"        
            'get the new transaction_id out for just inserted alarm   
            strSqual = "select max(transaction_id) as transaction_id from trans"  
            set rst = getStaticRecordSet(strSqual)

Need Help in LINQ query for group By with chunks of record


I am assigning and unique id [strShipperIdSequence] on my List on bases of some properties which are grouped together uniquely.
Now what i needed is that my group should be further break down to some maximum amount of chunks.[Let say 10]
that mean's even i am having Same value in 12 records i should get 2 groups[I of 10 items and other of 2 items]

var uniqueGroups = objMdbContentInfoList.GroupBy(p => new
}).Select(g => g.First()).ToList();
foreach (var objUnique in uniqueGroups)
string strShipperIdSequence = APIGlobalMethods.GetShipperRequestID();
foreach (MdbContentInfo obj in objMdbContentInfoList.FindAll(h => (h.CON_ENTRY_POINT == objUnique.CON_ENTRY_POINT &&
h.APPTType == objUnique.APPTType &&

Mobility: Optimize Your Pocket PC Development with the .NET Compact Framework


The .NET Compact Framework can be used to write great code and great applications. As long as you take a few things into consideration and are willing to bend a rule or two, you can have your performance cake and eat it too. In this article the authors present some neat tricks to make life as a programmer easier when using the .NET Compact Framework. Later they discuss techniques to increase performance, and decrease both load time and memory footprints. Sample code is provided.

Mobility: Add Keyboard Support to Compact Framework Apps by Trapping Windows Messages


The Compact Framework Control class doesn't provide direct access to Windows messages. However, with P/Invoke, a few lines of native code, and the Compact Framework MessageWindow class, it's still possible to access underlying Windows messages. This can be used to work around any .NET Framework features, including keyboard support, that are not included in the Compact Framework.
