How to return datatable from a typed dataset using WCF service and Jun CTP ?

How to return datatable from a typed dataset using WCF service/



       In one of my application I am using the Typed Dataset that contains many tables. I want to return a particular Datatable form the dataset as following.


Case 1. The following code is working, but the problem is I can not use .EnforceConstraints = false property as this property only available with Dataset.  (I want to use this property because I want to return only selected fields from the table and rest of the fields may have not null columns)

Introducing ADO.NET and the Typed DataSet

In reviewing the applications it seemed everything they were doing involved database reads, writes, and manipulation. The development staff had been reviewing the articles and code samples for ADO.NET. They had spent many years refining their existing ADO based infrastructure and perfecting their use of ADO

Create and Use a Typed DataSet by Using Visual C# .NET

This article shows you how to create and use a typed DataSet in a small Web application. Typed DataSets, which inherit from the DataSet class, create first-class members of a DataSet's DataTables and DataColumns, yielding the many benefits that come with the use of strong typing.

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot

using CompositeCollection in ListBox for merging two Typed DataTable

Hi i have a Typed DataSet contining two DataTable : Table1 , Table2 i want to merge the two Tables in a ListBox by using "CompositeCollection " , but this doesn't work <ListBox.ItemsSource> <CompositeCollection> <CollectionContainer Collection="{Binding Path = Table1}"/> <CollectionContainer Collection="{Binding Path =Table2}"/> </CompositeCollection> </ListBox.ItemsSource> i put also : public partial class Window1 : Window { public Window1() { InitializeComponent(); this.FillDataset(); this.DataContext = ds; //this.Resources.Add("mytable1", DataSet1.Table1); }   i want to confess i don't have a clear idea about referencing an object as a Typed DataTable. also if a want to Template my ListBox lique this :    <ListBox.ItemTemplate> <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type myprog:DataSet1+Table1 }"> <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=ProductName}" Background="AliceBlue"/> </StackPanel> </DataTemplate> <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type myprog:DataSet1+Table2 }"> <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=ProductName}&quo

Expose DataTable from WCF service, all Generic lists convert to arrays

I added a method to a .Net 3.5 WCF web service that returns a DataTable.  Other methods in the web service return Generic lists and/or take Generic lists as parameters.  When I update my reference to the altered web service from my client application all generic lists used as parameters or return types from all methods in the web service are converted to arrays.  In my service reference settings I have selected "System.Collections.Generic.List."  Apparently this setting has no effect when a web service returns a DataTable? Is there any way to prevent this from occuring? Steps to reproduce: Create a web service with methods that return Generic lists and/or take Generic lists as parameters. In a client application reference the web service and select "System.Collections.Generic.List" as the collection type.  Verify that return types/parameter types are generic lists. Add a method to the web service that returns a DataTable.  In a client application update the service reference. Note that all Generic lists (either as return types or method parameters) have changed to arrays.  This occurs even though the collection type service reference setting remains as "System.Collections.Generic.List".  Tom Regan

Strongly Typed DataSet Cleanup

Hey all, I've looked around and I can't seem to find a good answer on this. Is there any cleanup needed on a strongly typed dataSet? I'm using DataSets as my DAL but I don't really have a BLL. I'm handling this in my code behind like this: Private PunchAdapter As New PunchDSTableAdapters.PUNCHIMPORTTableAdapter Dim LastPunch As String = PunchAdapter.GetLastPunch(PersonNUM) PunchAdapter.InsertPunch(PunchID, ReqCode, PersonNUM, txtDate.Text, txtTime.Text) I'm assuming it handles the opening and closing of the connetion? The adapter has a dispose method. Should I be using this? Is there any cleanup necessary or does the partial class (that inherits system.data.dataset) handle all of this? Thanks!

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);

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; }

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

Returning DataSet/Datatable from Webmethod to Javascript

I have a simple web method written in the code-behind (not a separate asmx) of a test aspx page. All it does is return a DataTable(or DataSet) both are failing, gives a blank 500 error saying "There was an error processing the request" If I switch the return variable type to String, it works fine I think my issue has to do with the version of the System.Web.Extensions, is that the assembly that actually contains the JSON communication implementation? I've read all kinds of tutorials about how it should be possible to return the DataTable to javascript and then read the properties with javascript syntax. For some reason it isn't working for me. My web extensions is imported through my web.config with the following version <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>

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:

    [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;
