MVC Move Data Between Views

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am trying to move data, in the project I am working on a ViewModel containing two Data Contract Classes, from one view to another.

This is to facilitate a form process with multiple steps.  Similar to filling out a survey.

The issue is that I have been asked not to use session (due to multi tab issues), not to use cache and not to use Cookies.

What is the best way to move this data?

The only example I have been able to find revolves around creating hidden fields for all of the fields of the ViewModel and its associated classes.

Here is an example of the Hidden fields. Once the form is submitted the controller's method is given a full ViewModel object with the details from all of the hidden fields.
<form runat="server">
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.Reference)%>
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.FirstName)%>
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.LastName)%>
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.Things)%>
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.surveyData.Title)%>
        <%: Html.HiddenFor(m => m.surveyData.Q1)%>

ASP. NET 1. x introduced some powerful and useful data-bound controls. However, none were designed specifically to manage the view of a single record. When you build master/detail views, you need to display the contents of a single record.

Problem using SSIS to move DB2 data to Oracle



I will need your advice on a SSIS package which moves IBM DB2 (for z/OS V7) data to Oracle (AIX 10g). Thank you in advance.

Basically, this is a very simple SSIS package (created by SSIS import / export wizard) and just maps column by column. I used IBM OLEDB provider for DB2 to connect the source and Oracle Provider for OLEDB to connect to the destination.

The problem I ran into was that if the DB2 source value contains special (or invisible) characters then this value will be converted to a SPACE (' ') value on Oracle. To be more detailed, take the following example:

On DB2, value  000002D0000002D7 (EBCDIC HEX codes). This is actually a value of a column defined on DB2 as CHAR(8). Please note HEX '00' in EBCDIC stands for NULL and HEX 'D0' stands for character 'K';

On Oracle, this value will be stored as a SPACE (or a string of SPACEs) after data move.

On both DB2 and Oracle this column was defined as CHAR(8).

I guessed this was related to a code page issue, so I tried a few different code page to set for the source property (by setting the DefaultCodePage of the DataFlow source property), I used code page 37, 500, etc... All resulted in the same Oracle value.

The character set on DB2 is EBCDIC and the one on Oracle is ALT32UTF8. I guess it was the source provid

need some help parsing data views

not sure how to ask this, but, I've got an internal customer who has to grab a lot of data from a SCCM view. Specifically the v_R_User view. All of the columns are generated in the DB by AD attributes, one of them being the Manager field. We're using SQL Reporting and when the data from the column is displayed it's displayed exactly as it is in the column. thus the column data reads as the distinguished name and I'd like it to be displayed in the report as just the manager's name.  Not a SQL guru, so not sure how ot go about doing this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Unable to view data on list views

I have two lists. A List item in one list will be inserted to the other list based on the actions. This is easily achieved on the event receiver by adding the list item to the target list. Though I adds the list item to the target list; i am only able to view those data when i click on "Modify View" and simply click on "OK" button. Basically its a view refresh / commit. Has anyone came across such issue?

passing data between views


I have a view, which contains data from a Model class.  In this view I have a <form> section and submit button, and using that to pass data to a controller works fine.  What I'm struggling with is using a link that I also have on this view which passes data to a different view if the user clicks on it.  I'm using HTML.ActionLink, and including a message, name of the view, and as the third parameter, the Model.  However, when I get to the called View, the Model is null.  Anyone know what's going on?

Using Transact SQL Queries in Data Source Views


Afternoon all,

Can someone explain how I would use a view defined in SQL in my data source view creation and what the advantages of doing so would be. I've been assigned to a project where I need to build a DSV, but the database has a view that appears to create what I need too.

I've read in some MS literature that a view can be used in lieu of referencing the actual tables.

Can anyone explain how this would work?
