Store Attribute to string

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hello,I have been trying to store an xml attribute value to a string and I cannot seem to get it to work.  I start off pulling an XML node from a SharePoint web service. XmlNode user = usergrpService.GetUserInfo("domain\\user"); This seems to work because if I assign user.InnerXml to a text box then I can see the contents of the user.  So then I try to get the value.I have tried a combination of the following with /'s, @'s, User/ID, User@ID, /User/ID, /User@ID, etc.  String userID = user.Attributes["ID"].Value; String userID = user.SelectSingleNode("ID").Value; Each time I get an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error.  If I can read the InnerXml then why can I not get a single attribute?-Eric

How to store NULL instead of empty string in LinqToSQL scenario


Technology used : VS2008, VB.NET, LinqToSQL, BindingSource

I used LinqToSQL to create a detailsform. So I have a Textbox bound to a Varchar column in the dababase. When I created a record with the form it stores some columns as NULL values which is perfect. When I change the value of the textbox to something and do a db.SubmitChanges() the value is stored. 

However, when I make the textbox empty and save, the value in the database is an empty string. I want it to be NULL. How can i achieve this?

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

How to store more than 4k bytes of data in SQL CE 4?


I need to store more than 4k of bytes in my SQLCE 4 database. How can I do that with the ASP.NET Web Pages 1.0?

1: The Microsoft.Data provider fails when I try to populate a parameter with more than 4k bytes.
2: Referencing SqlServerCe assembly and using SqlCeConnection/SqlCeCommand/SqlCeParameter throws exception:  SQL Server Compact is not intended for ASP.NET development.

How can I somehow map the generic DbType, which does not have NText as an option, to the ntext column in my database? (SqlCeParameter supports DbSqlType, which has ntext, but see problem #2)

connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Membership Provider Conn String


Hello. I've bee successfully using the Asp.Net Membership Provider in my VB.Net 3.5/SQL 2005 web app for a year now (Site A). However, I've added 2 new sites (B and C) (both with their own DB) and now I see a problem. It looks like users that get created for sites B and C also get created in site A. Roles that I create for B and C only get created in A. I think it is a conn string problem.

When I created A, I adde the conn string to my machine.config (not sure why I did this or if it is even needed)...
