Moving from Client Server to Dynamic Data

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am a Visual Basic 6 Client- Server's applications developer. I have followed the first steps to create a scaffolded site. It was easy and it works fine, roughly. Dynamic data seems very powerful but it just makes me believe that it could be an excellent tool for supporting development only. Any real experience deployed with it? I understand that ASP.Net is of the disconnected type but I feel a little lost when variables are not there? How do you manage state? D.D.

Push data from Server to Client?

TCP Client/Server communication: NetworkStream.Write() send partial data unless close() method is re

Hi to all,
I wrote a simple client-server application that comunicate through NetworkStream class. The problems comes when stream.close() and client.close() methods are called. It look like only the first 10415 bytes are sent once those methods are called. So, if the data to send is more than this size, it is automatically truncated.

If I  remove both stream/client close() methods from the code, the data is fully received whatever the size is. I tried various alternative solutions (the ones marked as comments in the sample code), but none of them works.
The only thing that seems to work is adding a manual delay before the close() methods execute with something like that:

For Counter as integer = 0 to 10

The problem is that after delay I still don't know if all the data has been transfered or not. In addition to that, I will have to wait 10 seconds before sending another request, even if the response is just a few bytes of data. I could change at runtime the number of seconds to wait according to the size of the data to send, but I still think that delay is not a solution and will cause adverse effects.

So, for now the only working solution is to remove both Stream/Client Close() methods from

newbie to SSIS - moving data from excel files with dynamic name



I am a new to SSIS but not new to SQL server.  I have been used to programming stored procedures and such to get data in to SQL.  I need to daily import processes of excel files.  However, the name of the excel files change every day.  Is there anyway to dynamically handle this?



Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Accessing SharePoint 2010 Data with Server-Side APIs

Accessing SharePoint data in server-side solutions is one of the most common tasks that you will perform as a SharePoint developer. SharePoint 2010 provides powerful server-side APIs that enable you to retrieve, add, edit, and delete SharePoint data programmatically. SharePoint 2010 also includes the new LINQ to SharePoint technology that enables you to work with SharePoint data efficiently and easily.

Sorting Data in a GridView Web Server Control

The GridView control provides built-in sorting functionality without requiring any coding. You can further customize the sort functionality of the GridView control by using custom SortExpression property values for columns as well as by using the Sorting and Sorted events

Frequently Asked Questions - SQL Server Data Types

This is good and precise introduction and Frequently Asked Questions - SQL Server Data Types



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.

Routing in dynamic data applications


Im using ASP.Net 4. I tried to modified the code according to following video tutorial. http://www.asp.net/aspnet-in-net-35-sp1/videos/how-to-enable-table-specific-routing-in-dynamic-data-applications

But Product page directs only to ListDetails.aspx page.

This is my code :

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Routing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.DynamicData" %>

<script RunAt="server">
    private static MetaModel s_defaultModel = new MetaModel();
    public static MetaModel DefaultModel {
        get {
            return s_defaultModel;

    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes) {

        DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(NorthwindDataContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });


About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D

How to sell Dynamic Data to the bosses


I have a project which has gone from Excel report to a SharePoint Custom List and now they have tried to make it an application growing legs with additional list hinging off it and no real way to clean up data from one when it deleted from another etc..(unless we add handlers etc which we don't want to do).

It was envisiaged as a simple one page list to generate some reports off of but it more a data driven application they want now.

I am looking into a way after stating this to my boss and am intrested in the quickest most flexible way to achieve this and to sell it to him.

I am more a .net person but also know plsql and most of the team I work with are Oracle specialists.

We currently have at are disposile .net, php and oracle products (portal, plsql, forms and oracle application express.)

We are at a transition stage trying to move away from Oracle Forms and I believe that .net is a better fit that php for production and readability of code.

So I am considering placing Dynamic data on the table for this project as it all data driven with data being inputed and manipulated and then reports being generated (either via code or we could hitch in a reporting tool like mssql or discover.)  The main issue will be the data will be in Oracle so if Dynamic data can handle this then it be perfect as
