Linq getting data from field on record

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


   I would assume this is possiable but I cannot seem to find it anywhere. I just one the contents of a single field, I don't see why I have to return the how

record to get get that information, here is my current code, how can I make this better without returning the entire record, for just getting contents of one field.

var patternrecord = storedb.Patterns_Table.Single(a => a.Pattern_GUID == id);
PMEDIA.Pattern_Key = patternrecord.Pattern_Key;

Linq - add data to database then email user the details


Hi all

I'm not sure how to structure the code for this but what I want to do is be able to add data to a database, and once this has completed successfully, then email the user to say the details have been added successfully to the database.

I need to:

1. Check that the relevant data has been added into the database then

2. Email the details of the relevant data when completed. 


Thanks in advance for your help,




The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must



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?

Data Points: LINQ Projection Queries and Alternatives in WCF Services


LINQ's ability to project randomly shaped data into anonymous types can be a blessing and a source of frustration, says Julie Lerman. It's great when you just need to grab a special view of your data, but it can be problematic in certain circumstances. She explains what the limitations are and how to get around them.

Data Points: Precompiling LINQ Queries


Did you know that by precompiling LINQ queries you might actually be degrading your app's performance if you're not careful? Julie Lerman explains how to ensure you're not re-precompiling queries each time and losing the expected performance benefits across post-backs, short-lived service operations and other code where critical instances are going out of scope.

Automatically set a property value for a new record in a Dynamic Data application.


I have a SalesOrderItem table, and it has a UnitPrice column in case the salesperson wishes to override the unit price of the Product for that order item.

In an ASP.NET Dynamic Data application, what would be the best way to set that UnitPrice property on a new SalesOrderItem based on the standard UnitPrice for the product? In other words, when the user clicks New on the 'Items' screen for a sales order, the UnitPrice field should already be filled in with the normal unit price for the product.

This was originally asked by myself on StackOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3538234/automatically-set-a-property-value-for-a-new-record-in-a-dynamic-data-application

Cast error when inserting record with Linq (to Sql)



I'm getting  the following error message: 

Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.Linq.DataQuery`1[Username]' to type 'Username'.

I've been searching but can't find a solution.  This particular table has 4 columns. The first column is the int indentifier.  Column 2 is "username" (varchar50) and is the primary key.  Column3 is "userID" (uniqueidentifier) and column 4 is "active" (varchar5) .

            Dim dc As New DataClassesDataContext
            Dim c3 As New Username With {.userID = userGuid, _
                                    .username = userCustomName, _
                                    .active = "False"}

[newbie] How to return a data record from a webservice (wsdl)?



vs2010, .NET 4.0

I have a webmethod which I want to return a data record (for example: name, surename, address, age, zip etc)

I wonder how to accomplish this. I think the solution is about creating an object which contains all the records serialized. And then the webmethod returns this serialized object. I'm not 100% sure how to accomplish this, if some of you good provide me with some tips, tutorial or link to an article explaining it, that would be great

Combining data from 2 lists, then summing a field


I have 2 lists, one is a contact list (client, client title, address, etc.), the other is a list of meetings with these clients (client name, type of meeting, date, etc.).  The 2nd list has multiple entries for the same client.  I am trying to create a report that combines the data in these lists and displays them like this:

Client--Client Title--MeetingType1--MeetingType2




In addition to combining the list data, I also need to break up the Type of Meeting field and sum the number of different types of meetings for each client.  I added the 2 lists to a linked source, then inserted the data into a DVWP adding data from the 2nd list as a joined subview.


I tried this: xsl:value-of select="count(/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[@TypeOfMeeting = 'MeetingType1'])" but it just returns 0.  I'm not sure if that's the correct method though as I think it will return a count of ALL the rows, not the current row.  Any ideas would be appreciated!
