"Type ASP.x is not defined" error for dynamic user control when publishing updateable


I have a user control (ContainerCtrl) which programmatically instantiates another user control (SimpleCtrl) in OnLoad. It builds and runs fine, but when I publish it I get the error "error BC30002: Type 'ASP.SimpleCtrl' is not defined." (If I publish without the "updateable" option there's no error, but I need the site to be updateable.)

I assume this has to do with the particulars of how the assembly(ies) are built for the different compiler options. My question is, how can I get it to work properly for "updateable" publishing?

VS 2008 / .NET 3.5 sp1

The code follows (web.config is the default from Visual Studio).

Many thanks, Dave


<%@ Control Language="VB" ClassName="SimpleCtrl" CodeFile="SimpleCtrl.ascx.vb" Inherits="_SimpleCtrl" %>

    Simple control


Partial Class _SimpleCtrl
    Inherits UserControl

    'Nothing to see here.

End Class

Creating a table-valued function on a user defined type in SQL Server CLR

We would like to be able to create a table-valued function on a user defined type.  We would like the syntax in SQL to look like it works for the XML nodes function:   DECLARE @myXml XML = '<a><b>1</b><b>2</b><b>3</b></a>' ; SELECT  node.query('text()') FROM    @myXml.nodes('a/b') nodes (node) ;   In other words, in the FROM clause, we can access the "nodes" method of the xml variable and it returns a rowset. Thanks!

SSIS User Defined Data Type (Alias Data Types) and OLE DB Command validation

Hello everyone, I've been having an issue with trying to run my SSIS package on a server, and it seems to be failing on the OLE DB Command step.  What we have in our SQL 2005 DB, is a User-Defined Data Type (base type char(7)) and the OLE DB Command is supposed to call a proc that passes in a value of this data type. ie:  CREATE PROCEDURE myProcedure ( @passedInFromSSIS MY_DATATYPE ) AS .... In my SSIS package, I have the type defined as DT_STR with a length of 7.  Now, when I run the package locally (via Visual Studio), the process runs with success.  However, once the package is deployed on a server and run from an application (note: it is run under a different user), the process fails on a validation step with a "Invalid Parameter Number" error. Now, if I change the input parameter in my proc to the base type of the user-defined data type, the process works again. Has anybody run into a similar issue or know what may be causing this issue?  I first suspected perhaps I needed to grant permissions on the user-defined data type (since I was able to run it under my security context, but not under the application's), however noticed that there isn't security tied to the types.  Any other thoughts?  Please let me know if you need further explanation.  Thanks!

user defined return type



For a assignment I have to implement a Service and a Client which communicate of WCF.

The problem is, that the Service has as return value a user defined type (or better class). I can open the Server and send everything, but the Client breaks up when it receive the type.

Could somebody help me pls.

Here ist my code:

Server Side

using System;
using System.ServiceModel;

 public interface IService
   IStock getPrice(String symbol);

using System;

namespace Stest
 public interface IStock
   String toString();

using System;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;

 public class Stock : IStock
  string symbol;
  float price;
  float change;
  long lastUpdated;

  public Stock(string symbol, float price, float change, long lastUpdated)
   this.symbol = symbol;
   this.price = price;
   this.change = change;
   this.lastUpdated = lastUpdated;
 public String toString()
  return "Symbol: " + symbol + "\nPrice: " + price +  "\nChange: " + change + "\nLast Update: " + lastUpdated;

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?


Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

Passing Primary Key to User Control to Display Record Detail


I'm building a user control to display detail information on a parent record. The user control will be displayed via an Ajax Modal Popup. The user control works and is displayed when expected. The problem that I'm having is that I'm not able to pass in the primary key for the parent. The control is displayed via the _ItemCommand event of a Repeater. In the markup for the user control, I explicity set the ContactId to 0 to avoid an error when the control loads (its still underdevelopment, eventually that I'll check if the value is valid).

I was assuming that I could change the property in the _ItemCommand event, but obviously its not working.

In the Page_Load event this code successfully sets the ContactId property of the control. The _ItemCommand event appears to set the value. However when I set a test label on the user control to the Me.ContactId, its showing '0' as if it was never passed in.

        UserControlContactDetail.ContactId = "1462"
        test.Text = UserControlContactDetail.ContactId

    Protected Sub RepeaterDirectory_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs) Handles RepeaterDirectory.ItemCommand

User Control and DataSourceID Property


I created a user control (.ascx) that contains a paging-user-control, a repeater and some other controls.
I want to use the property DataSourceID. How should I get the data from the datasource and when?
What is the recommended way?

I did it this way:
- Create a method to get the data by reflection, like:

private void PerformSelect()
	if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(this.DataSourceID))
		Control control = Page.FindControl(this.DataSourceID);
		if (control == null)
			control = Parent.FindControl(this.DataSourceID);

		MethodInfo method = control.GetType().GetMethod("Select");
		IEnumerable data = (IEnumerable)method.Invoke(control, new object[0]);

		this.DataSource = data;
 - Call this method
In PageLoad when no postback
Changing the current page (paging-user-control)
Changing the current tab (tab-user-control)
Switching Visibility to true

I think that way is not the optimum, is there any better way?
Do you have any suggestions or links?

Thanks for your help, Andreas

User Control as Composite Control Property


I have a composite control (Called Dialog) which has a property "ContentControl"

At design time, I'd like this property to bind to a user control that is on the page.

When I add the items in the designer, the designer loads as expected.

However, when I try to run the web page, I get the following error:

Parser Error Message: Cannot create an object of type 'System.Web.UI.UserControl' from its string representation 'EditTerm1' for the 'ContentControl' property.

Please let me know if there is another way to bind a user control as a property of a composite control.


Designer Code:


	<cc1:Dialog ID="Dialog1" runat="server" Buttons="SaveCancel" 
Title="Edit Term" ContentControl="EditTerm1" />

The type specified in the TypeName property of ObjectDataSource 'ObjectDataSource1' could not be f
