Unable to drag data source to control to bind

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I have a simple test application following the directions from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd465159.aspx .  When I attempt to drag the data source onto the design surface I get the following error:

Cannot add the control to the design surface or bind to the control because the type TestApp.AdventureWorksEntities cannot be resolved.  Please try to build the project or add necessary assembly references.

The project as been built and the data source is in the same namespace.  I did a search for this error and the only hit I found was here, and mentioned Tools->Options->Extension Manager, 'Load per use extensions...'.  This option is checked.  I've tried unchecking and restarted with the same behavior.

Any ideas?

Data Flow Task failing to drag-and-drop onto SSIS Control Flow

This morning, I started having problems with Visual Studio 2005 on XP when I tried to create an SSIS project; I was getting an error message about the failure to create an SSIS runtime object, with the reference "Unable to cast COM of type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.DTS.Runtime.Wrapper.PackageNeutralClass' to interface type". Digging here and elsewhere on the Net, I used regsvr32 to re-register msxml3.dll, msxml6.dll, and dts.dll. This allowed me to create a new SSIS project, but I was unable to add a data flow task to the Control Flow pane -- when I dragged the control onto the pane, nothing happened, and when opened the Data Flow pane and clicked on the 'No data flow task has been defined. Click here to create a data flow task" link, I got a 'Failed to create the task. The designer could not be initialized." error. Searching here and on the Net, I uninstalled and reinstalled the SQL Server 2005 workstation tools.

After doing this, I am still unable to create a data flow task by dragging the task out of the toolbox; the pointer assumes the right form for the drag-and-drop, as it does for other tasks, but when I release the mouse button, nothing happens. However, when I go to the Data Flow pane and click on the 'click here to create a new data flow task', it creates the task, and I am able to use copy-and-paste to make copies of the data flow task

Binding a DVDropDown control to a XML data source


I'm having a heck of time figuring how to get my DVDropDown control to display items from the SoapDataSource (SOAP web service) or XmlDataSource (REST).


If I create a data view for the same data sources, I can see the data just fine, but when I go to Data Fields dialog, I can select the data source in the dropdown but in all cases, the two other dropdown to pick the value and display text are blank and there's nothing for me to select though I know there should be columns available for selection.


I've also tried manually coding those parameters, accounting for the possibility that I may need fully qualified XPath to get to the column itself but that causes an error.


What could I be missing?

Cannot drag an Entity Framework Data Source (created in a separate solution) onto WPF Design Surface


I receive the error Cannot add the control to the design surface or bind to the contol because the type Pec.CustomerEntity.Carrier, Pec.CustomerEntity,Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null cannot be resolved.  Please try to build the project or add necessary assembly references  (I have rebuilt and it still doesn't work)   -  when I try to drag the data source onto the window. 

If I create an entity framework project within the wpf application solution and create a data source and reference to it, it works fine when I drag the data source onto the window.  I only get the error when I create a reference to an EF project .dll created outside of the wpf project.  I am using Visual Basic 2010.    I have also tried adding the project to the wpf solution and it still gives me the error. 

LINQ data source control and db connection string


I have designed a few pages which use LINQ datasources and Gridviews to maintain data.

I have built a data layer which happily uses System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("myConnectionString").ConnectionString

However, the LINQ data source controls use Settings.designer.vb MySettings class definition which is auto generated and doesn't except the above Connection string.

Any ideas?

Provider selection gray, unable to change it in Data Source Creation


I am trying to create an Ad Hoc report project using SSRS2005.  We are using Oracle 10G and I have Visual Studio2005.

I have the Oracle client installed and I am an administrator.

I create a new "Report Model Project " and attempt to create a new data source, but with "Create a data source based on an existing or new connection " selected, I click on "new " where I should be able to specify the database, but the Provider shows "SqlClient Data Provider " and is grayed out so I can't change it.

How do I tell it I want to point to Oracle data?  I have no trouble normally doing this with an SSRS report but this is the first time I have tried an Ad Hoc report so I don't know what the problem is.

"The data source control failed to execute the insert command." when inserting to sql table with tri



I have a data view web part that inserts a new record into a sql table. This works fine.

I have now needed to add a trigger to the sql table that sends an email when a new record is inserted (the code for which works fine) but now my insert fails with 'The data source control failed to execute the insert command.'.

If I disable the trigger the form works fine again.

Any ideas what could be causing this?


DataReader Source Data Flow control not in the Toolbox of BIDS ???


I find this advice in the SSIS forum . . . but I can't find the DataReader Source in the Data Flow source items . . . nor do I seem to be able to 'Add Item' that time.

Advice appears to be I should use DataReader Source when pulling data from Oracle using ODBC e.g.:

"ODBC is supported in the data flow by the Data Reader source adapter. I think the original problem may have been that you were trying to use the Data Reader source with an ODBC connection manager.

To extract data from an ODBC source, try the following:

  • Add an ADO.Net Connection Manager.
  • Edit the Connection Manager editor and select the ODBC Data Provider
  • Configure the Connection Manager to use your DSN or connection string
  • Add a Data Flow Task to your package.
  • Add a Data Reader Source adapter to your data flow"

Any help getting the DataReader Source to appear in the BIDS toolbox appreciated.

Thank you and a Happy time with family tomorrow,
