The trick to force Webmatrix to create the MySQL database install scripts on my local box?


 Here is why I ask:

I've found a Webmatrix help article that says MS Webmatrix "publishes the (SQL Server or MySQL) database by creating scripts that run in a database that has been created for you by your hosting provider." That is wonderful, except I can't get it to work when I'm trying to publish a MySQL database (backing wordpress) through FTP (my hosting provider does not support 'web deploy'). Again, no problem, since it is already documented that " FTP protocols cannot be used to publish MySQL database. "

But this does not excuse Webmatrix from generating MySQL database install scripts for me. During the publishing step, no database install script is generated - at least that I can tell - and there is no manual option to create a database export / backup / install script.

In short, as Webmatrix goes, I'm dead in the water trying to get my database uploaded to my hosting provider. Does anyone know the trick to force Webmatrix to create the MySQL database install scripts on my local box? Once created, I can take-over the upload and install process.

DatabaseHelper for WebMatrix


After some initial trouble with database editor in the beta version of Microsoft WebMatrix, I decided it would be better to create SQL scripts and run them at startup of my web-app. Perhaps the Microsoft.Data.Database helper can be extend to support similar scenarios?

Here is the code: http://www.forkcan.com/viewcode/231/DatabaseHelper-for-WebMatrix

Keyboard shortcuts stops working in WebMatrix


I'm often experiencing that keyboard shortcuts stops working in WebMatrix. This is very annoying as CTRL-S, CTRL-C, CTRL-V, etc. stops working, all of which are heavily used when programming. It's obviously hard to explain how to reproduce this, but I was wondering if someone knows a quick-fix?

WebMatrix shorthand coding?


Will there be support for shorthand statements?


@if(1==1) @: works
@else @: doesn't work

as apposed to;

    <text>doesn't work</text>

Or perhaps ternary opperators? PHP like stuff ...

WebMatrix conversion failed when converting from a character string to uniqueidentifier?


I am trying to retrieve xml from a small function in my .cshtml page. Its throwing me an error. This however, runs fine in a console/form environment.

Any plans on releasing the source code for WebMatrix itself?


I tried reflecting into WebMatrix.exe but was unable.  I'm interested on how you integrated the WPF Ribbon & the Office-style sidebar.

Connecting to MS SQL Server database using webmatrix.



I am novice  user to raizor syntax using webmatrix and i am trying to connect MS Sql server database (instead of using .sdf file i am using .mdf file) using the tool webmatrix for startersite.

The connection string that i setup as follows.

<?xml version="1.0"?>


        <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.0" />
    <add name="OESConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLServer2005;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\OES_Data.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />


And i am using websecurity helper as well and the setup is as follows.

WebSecurity.InitializeDatabaseConnection("Data Source=INLTE5556\\SQLServer2005;Initial Catalog=OES;Integrated Security=True", "System.Data.SqlClient", "UserProfile", "UserId", "Email", true);

When i am trying to insert the user details into database i am getting the below error.

Individual field - MySQL



I was wondering how to recieve an individual field from my MySQL database.

I have been able to get a row, but what I am trying to do is get a name from my database and set it into the HeaderText in my DataGrid.

The way I am trying to do it at the moment is

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.Columns[0].HeaderText = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

This doesn't seem to get a value from the GetValue, but if use

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

it will bind my data into the grid.

I just want to be able to change the HeaderText in the first coulmn of the DataGrid from one table and have the DataGrid be filled from another table.

I can fill the DataGrid its just changing the HeaderText that I am having trouble with.

Last night most of the DotNetnuke team and I traveled into Burnaby, to the BCIT campus where I gave a real quick (1 hour) presentation on the WebMatrix Beta, and Razor Syntax.

I was happy to see that we had over 60 people attend.  It was awesome to see the turn out on a hot summer evening.
