Dynamic directory location for "Flat File Source"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I am using a "Flat File Source" to read from a source file. Now I want the directory location to be dynamic because it will change during migration from development to UAT to Production.

Can anyone help me here on this. Ofcourse my intention is not to open and modify the package after migrating into a different environment. Actually I want to store the directory location in a table and want the "Flat File Source" to read the location form that table duing runtime. But not sure whether can I achieve this or not. If yes then how?

creating dynamic mini representation of the Active directory tree.

First of all I would like to thank Dunnry for the great output he has provided to almost any post in this forum. I see he has helped almost all of. Also the link with the vb.net web resources he has provided in some of his posts is great. Now I know how to pretty much do anything I need for my project, except one last thing.

In my web interface with active directory I would like to create a represantation of the active directory tree. I would like a user to be able to click on one OU and then get all the child OU listed under that OU and (etc). At the end he/she would be able to create a user in the final OU. I first thought that would not be such a big deal I could use a bunch of nested datagrids or datarepeaters and the result would look like somewhat real structure of active directory. I already built an array and then populated with the names and bounded to a datagrid, just to see if it works, it does. I spent hours online looking for some information or ideas, but I could not find anything. All I found is one javascript, I have not had time to look at the code, but I doubt it that it is server based. I could use the datagrids and repeaters, but the problem is that our tree is huge and different containers have different number of children. It sounds insane to have for example five nested datagrids I don't even want to think about all the code I woul

securing an entire directory with location element


Hi all,

got a folder named profile with about 4 pages in it. 

i used this tag to protect the directory but it only works if i go www.mysite.com/profile.   if i specifically try to go to a page like www.mysite.com/profile/mypage.aspx it lets me in and doesn't block my access or drive me to the login page as it's supposed to - am i missing something here?

 <location path="profile">

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

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.

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.

Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM) Methodology

The Dynamic Systems Development Model was developed in the U.K. in the mid-1990s. It is the evolution of rapid application development (RAD) practices. DSDM boasts the best-supported training and documentation of any of the agile software development techniques, at least in Europe. DSDM favors the philosophy that nothing is built perfectly the first time and looks to software development as an exploratory endeavor.

Adding Dynamic Rows in GridView with TextBoxes

What is the difference between "dynamic" and "object" keywords?

Let's take a quick look at the object keyword first. I'm not going to talk a lot about it because it's been around since C# 1.0. This keyword is nothing more than a shortcut for System.Object, which is the root type in the C# class hierarchy. (However, as Eric Lippert pointed out in his blog post, not everything in C# derives from object.) This is a powerful mechanism, since you can assign almost any value to instances of this type.

Dynamic in C# 4.0: Introducing the ExpandoObject

You have probably already heard about the new dynamic feature in C# 4.0 and how it is used to support COM interop. If you haven't, I strongly recommend reading the following MSDN articles: Using Type dynamic and How to: Access Office Interop Objects by Using Visual C# 2010 Features.



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.

Dynamic page customization in WebForms



I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki

Need help regarding C# / AJAX Dynamic Controls creation

i have this code which works... 

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

But when I use the following code inside the BtnSelectClick event...

Problem with Dynamic Button


Hi friends,

I am trying to make a page inspired from http://login.qlikview.com/help.aspx

here I have made a dropdownlist and on clicking I am able to dynamically add the textboxes and radio buttons using placeholders. My problem is I am not able to use a dynamic number of submit buttons. In the page (link above) I need to make the submit button available for two choices and invisible for one.  But the option dynamicbutton is not available alike dynamicTextboxes etc. What could I do? Is there any other way I could figure out to implement this.

Thanking you in advance,
