assigning database roles with smo (C#)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi All,

I'm using VS C# express with SQL 2005 express.

I have the following problem:

I would like to assign database roles in a given database for a login by using smo. Let's say:

I have a Login, created with smo named MyLogin and a database name MyDatabase.

How can I map MyLogin to MyDatabase and give for example db_datawriter database role membership for it, using SMO?

I do not find the way, propably I miss something...

Any help is highly appreciated, I would be thanksfull if one could give a code example to solve this.

How to stop the repeated database queries for roles


Hello, friends,

We have a web application using VS 2008, c#. We try to filter siteMap nodes based on security roles. We have our customized the mether GetRolesForUser() in RoleProvider class to determine a user's role. In this method, roles will be returned by querying an SQL Server database.

However, we found that each time a page was loaded/refershed, this  GetRolesForUser() was called, and the database would be queried. This is too MUCH and expensive.

We thought the roles should be queried only once when a user logs in. After that, role info should be stored somewhere for this user, rather than query DB all the time.

Any ideas, reference paper, snipet,...,?

Thanks a lot!

Assigning values from a Database to a Label



I want to select all the values from a table in my database and then put each value in order into labels that are on the asp page.

I can Select all the values from that database fine but I am rather stuck as how to put the values into the individual labels? Here is the code I have connecting to my database.

  Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
            Dim myConnection As New SqlConnection("Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\Alerts.mdf;User Instance=true")

            cmd.Connection = myConnection
            cmd.CommandText = "SELECT DateTime, Description FROM EmailTemplateLoad"


        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try

How can I put the DateTime value into Label1 and the Decription into Label2??

I have had a nose about but can't seem to find the information I need.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

A little bug with WebMatrix Sql ce Database , WebSecurity and Roles ?


Hi , i'm reviewing heavily the api provided with webpages which is really cool , it reminds me the api zend provides for php.

But i add some issues with WebSecurity and the Roles object.

I think you should not be able to insert multiple times the same role to the same user with the Roles.AddUserToRole(user, role) command cause it makes the database editor bug big time. I could not edit the webpages_UsersInRoles table manually anymore because of identical rows in the Data editor. i had to do a SQL DELETE to be able to edit the table again. So maybe there should be some kind of check if the association exists before inserting another user/role relationship.

I wasn't able to use some methods of simpleroleprovider either. Is it fully implemented?

Anyway , i cant wait for the official stable release.


Replication and database roles


Hi all!

We have replication set up between 2 servers (SQL 2005) and among tables and views we also replicate procedures. Because roles can't get replicated, we have roles with procedure execute permissions set up on Subscriber server. It works fine until we add procedure at Distrubutor server and reinitialize the subscription. Then database roles get "reset" i.e. all procedure entries are removed. Table entries are left intact in DB role.

Can someone tell me if this is functioning as designed or is something misconfigured. If database role can't get replicated, then it would be nice if they could at least not be replicated.

I would appreciate any help or to be pointed in right direction.

Kind regards, Max

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel. You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

SQL Server Database Transaction

A transaction is a group of SQL commands executed together as a single component of work to be accomplished. If all of these commands succeed, then a transaction is committed - the changes to the data are made final. If any of the commands within a transaction fail, then the entire transaction is cancelled, or in SQL Server terms, the transaction will be rolled back.

Transactions are one of the things that keep your data safe, but they're not necessarily easy to understand. Here's some help:

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink
