How To Generate A Dynamic Connection String In Entity Framework 4

Sep 27, 2010

Is it possible to choose a specific database that will be used with the entity framework? At this time, I use the connection string in the Web.Config as database authentication.

I have twelve databases, each of them has the same structure and the same stored procedure.

There is one database for each client. When a client wants to login into the system, he needs to choose his database name from a listbox.

I would like to create a dynamic connection string which will include the database name chosen by the client.

Provider Connection String Of Entity Framework Be Substituted With A DB Connection String Already Defined In Web.config?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a db connection string 'ApplicationServices' defined in the connectionString section of web.config and 3 Entity Framework connection strings which have the provider connection string attribute with the same connection string as the one in 'ApplicationServices'. Is there a way to reference connectionString in 'ApplicationServices' for the provider connection string attribute of the EF connection string in the web.config, rather than providing the connection string all over again?

Getting Entity Framework Connection String From Alternate Location?

Mar 7, 2011

How can I retrieve the Entity Framework 4 connection string from a custom config file, not web.config?

Edit: Is it reasonable to delete the default constructor generated code and recreate it in a partial class to use the pulled in connection string?

I would really like to avoid changing all references to the EF context with an overloaded method including the connection string.

@BrokenGlass: This is what we ended up with:

C# - Entity Framework Connection String From The Online Database?

Mar 3, 2011

I'm working on an application that is connected to the online MSSQL database and everything is working fine.The model I'm using is entity model.The problem is that I have to change the connection string from the online database to the local one,but I don't know how.Creating new model isn't an option.I tried changing the connection string in web.config,but errors are the only thing I get.

This is what I have in web.config:

<add name="PravosudnaAkademijaEntities" connectionString="metadata=res://*
PrakModel.csdl|res://*/PrakModel.ssdl|res://*/PrakModel.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string='Data Source=HRVOJE-PC;Initial Catalog=pak_baza;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />

C# - How To Include Ampersand In Connection String Password After Using Entity Framework

Sep 29, 2010

I'm using Entity Framework 4 for a simple app and would like to bake my connection credentials into the following connection string:

<add name="MyEntities"
connectionString="metadata=res://*/MyDataModel.csdl|res://*/MyDataModel.ssdl|res://*/MyDataModel.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string="Data Source=localhostDEV;Initial Catalog=MyDB;UserId=myUser;Password=jack&jill;MultipleActiveResultSets=True""
providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />

However, the password (which I cannot change) contains an ampersand. ASP.NET throws:
Configuration Error: An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line XX, position YYY.

If I replace the ampersand in the password with &, I get a SqlException: Login failed for user 'myUser'. Usually this trick works, but I'm guessing that something is failing because this is technically a connection string inside a connection string.

What should I do here? Most of my classes include code like:

using (var context = new MyEntities()) {
// do work

Update: It turns out that the credentials I am using are a domain account, so what I really need is Integrated Security=True in the connection string rather than a password.

Encoding the ampersand as indicated in the accepted answer should work fine, though I haven't tested it.

ADO.NET :: VS 2010 - No Entity Framework Or LINQ Support For SQL Server 2000 SQLOLEDB Connection?

Sep 1, 2010

I'm working with Visual Studio 2010 and for Data Connections am connecting to a SQL Server 2000 production database. When I try to drag a table to a .dbml file, the Object Relational Designer says, "The selected object(s) use an unsupported data provider." If I try to create an .edmx file via Generate from database, then the alert is, "This server version is not supported. You must have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or later."

So VS 2010 has no support for the Data Entity Framework or LINQ when connecting to a SQL Server 2000 database? If that is the case, what is the best data access strategy for this scenario?

Entity Framework - RADs - Dynamic Data Alternatives

Mar 25, 2010

We have a set of tables and views that merely store some config data for embedded devices. this schema is change-prone and do not really required lots of logic, beyond some validation rules. so we considered using a RAD tool for maintaining these CRUDS. In first stage: Dynamic Data But the community size, books absence and the last modification dates of the MSDN articles (~July 2008) makes me want to hear your experiences. (actually DynamicData comes as a part of the ASP.Net MVC2 project) What has been your experience with Dynamic Data? What is your favorite ASP.Net RAD alternative? Why?

Entity Framework - Dynamic Data IS Showing Primary Keys For Every Table When Using Entities

Feb 4, 2010

Using a very run-of-the-mill database, with identity int for primary keys, a Dynamic Data Entities Project (EntityFramework) displays the primary key for view and edit. When using Linq to Sql, the primary key fields are not displayed.

I would like to hide the primary keys and use Entity Framework (VS 2008, .Net 3.5 sp1).

Is there a way to export a EF 4.0 Data Model to EF 3.5?

I looked around and found that we are not able to access EF 4.0 from a ASP.Net 3.5 project here: [URL]

Our project is the 1st to go to .Net 4.0 using Entity Framework and we (the team) were wondering if there was a way for the other projects that "might" need to access our data that are still using the .Net 3.5 framework.

Dynamic Connection String For Strongly Typed Dataset

Jan 20, 2010

I have an nTier application. The data access layer is a strongly typed DataSet consisting of multiple DataTables with DataAdapters. When the user logs in, they choose which database to connect to (from a table in the membership database). I need to pass the selected connection string into the DataSet object which will remain the same for that users until they log in again. I'm thinking that the answer might be to create a partial class of the DataSet object where I can pass the connection string into the constructor. Im not sure how to go about this though.
