2010 Collection class syntax/property problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I converted a project from 2008 to 2010 to be able to use the TPL.

I've updated the compile target to .NET 4. Everything seems good, including the .NET 4 specific TPL stuff...except that:

Parallel.ForEach(MyClassCollection.Cast(Of MyClass), (Sub(ANYTHING As MYClass) ANYTHING.MySubRoutine()))

Gives the following as a syntax error:

Error 2 'Cast' is not a member of 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.Collection'. C:\Users\jeff\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\MyProject\MyProject\RunLoop.vb 229 34 MyProject

Any ideas?

Problem retrieving bit colum with sqldatareader for vb class property


 I have a vb class that reads a single row of data from an SQL view. I want to add a property to it that will expose the value of a new bit field. But whatever I do my class always returns the value "false".

What am I doing wrong?

       Public ReadOnly Property IsPublished() As Boolean
                Return valPublished
            End Get
        End Property

Here's the relevant line from my datareader:
        Me.valPublished = Convert.ToBoolean(theObjectReader("Authorised"))Authorised is my bit field. I have tried it with and without the "ConvertToBoolean" statement.
When I response write the value of the property for rows where this field is true, it always shows false.

Any ideas?

Hi friend,

you can use this thread to solving problem and solutions.

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

Strange Problem - SSIS Fails with "Syntax error, permission violation, or other nonspecific error".

Hello, I have a strange issue while I am deploying a package to one of the environment server. I have 2 XML Source, in the DataFlow, and one will extracted based on a value of variable that is passed from run time (package is executed from a Job) and other will be extracted all time. The next Step I have is a Execute SQL Task in ControlFlow wihich will execute after DataFlow. This has 2 input parameters and some SQL query that uses the param. Now this one fail on the target environment with below error: failed with the following error: "Syntax error, permission violation, or other nonspecific error". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly. I got the error when I did a SSIS Text File Log. Note: If I run the package in BIDS with the same XML files it work. Also when I deploy the package to my Dev Server it works. When I compare the Dev DB with the target environment DB - Both are same. The Service Acount has permission - as I can see the DataFlow task completed. Another Point: The XML Load Data Flow that executes based on the Variable Value does not execute on target environment, even if the value is passed as "True" (It is Boolean Type) But this variable is NOT an input for the Execute SQL task that fails.
