How To Bind Form Collection Back To Custom Model Object That Uses 2 Custom Objects

Mar 23, 2010

What I'm trying to do is rather basic, but I might have my facts mixed up. I have a details page that has a custom class as it's Model. The custom class uses 2 custom objects with yet another custom object a property of one of the 2. The details page outputs a fair amount of information, but allows the user to post a comment. When the user clicks the post button, the page gets posted to a Details action that looks something like this:

public ActionResult Details(VideoDetailModel vidAndComment) { ....}

The only fields on the form that is posted are CommentText and VideoId. Here is what the VideoDetailModel looks like.

public class VideoDetailModel
public VideoDetailModel()
I suppose if I added more form fields for the properties I need, they would get posted, but I only need 1 form entry field for the CommentText. If I could get the same Model objects value that were sent to the page to post with the page, it looks like the solution is rather simple. I think using the RenderPartial in the middle of a form is problematic somehow to how the form gets written in html. I can't really put my finger on why things went bonkers, but if I do my RenderPartials before my form and then begin my form with the text entry field and the hidden VideoId, the default ModelBinder works just fine. I was beginning the form, writing the hidden VideoId, rendering several partial views, create my CommentText field, and then closed the form out. The CommentText field would get bound just fine. The hidden VideoId would not. Maybe I missed a rule somewhere about using RenderPartial.

For completeness, the partial view I was rendering took a Comment object and just wrote out it's CommentText data. Several of these objects would exist for a single Video object. All of this data was in a custom type and passed into the View (the main view) as it's Model. This partial view did not have a form and did not have any data entry fields.

ADO.NET :: Create Collection Of Custom Data Access Objects?

Dec 30, 2010

I am using to retrieve data from a Lotus notes DB using OLEDB connection. I use a ADOrecordset to read the values.

MVC :: Custom Model Validation Against Collection Of Instances?

Jul 22, 2010

i am creating a MVC2 application for pubs and bars. I have a model 'Opening_Time' with the following properties:

int Day,time OpeningTimetime ClosingTimeWhen adding/editing an Opening_Time, I want to validate an Opening_Time, to check the user isn't adding one for an existing Day (ie they can't have two entries for the same day).

How To Expose Custom Object (with Sub Objects) In Web Service

Feb 11, 2010

I'm kinda new to web services and want to make sure I am doing things correctly.

I have a custom object which has sub objects as well. (let's say Company object, sub object is collection of Employee objects)

I want the web service to return a collection of Company objects. Do I make the service return a Dataset and custom generate a dataset with datatables representing the different objects?

What is the best way to do this? I tried to just serialize it, but that doesn't seem to work either.

I tried this dll


But the output XML doesn't seem to include the sub object.

How To Bind A GridView To A Custom Object

Apr 1, 2011

If I have the following ASP.NET code (it's not complete - obviously there's a lot missing, but none of it matters):

My Label: <asp:Label />
My Text Box: <asp:TextBox />

And if I have something like this in the CodeBehind:

Private MyListOfObjects As List(Of MyObject)
Public Class MyObject
Public MyTextBoxString as String
Public MyLabelString as String
End Class

How can I bind the GridView so that one row is equivalent to one item in my MyListOfObjects list, and so that the data will populate and persist across page loads or postbacks? I've never done custom databinding like this before. All the tutorials I've come across so far only talk about using GridViews directly with Database query results, and that's not what I need.

MVC :: How To Update A Collection Of Objects In A View Model

Sep 14, 2010

I have been trying to design a form, which uses a view model that contains an object array. I want to set up this form so that when the submit button is clicked, all the members of the array are updated. Here is my code:

The class definition of the array element:


The problem is that when I clicked the submit button, none of the luSubject objects in the array Subjects got updated. But if I set up some initial values for the members of the luSubject objects, for instance, set the Name field to be "Maths" in the constructor of luSubject class, then it got displayed on the text box when the form page was loaded. This suggests that this form could display the data in the array, but cannot update it.

C# - Dispose Of Custom Object From Within Custom Membership Provider?

Apr 16, 2010

I have created my custom MembershipProvider. I have used an instance of the class DBConnect within this provider to handle database functions. Please look at the code below:

public class SGIMembershipProvider : MembershipProvider
#region "[ Property Variables ]"
private int newPasswordLength = 8;
private string connectionString;
private string applicationName;
private bool enablePasswordReset;
private bool enablePasswordRetrieval;
private bool requiresQuestionAndAnswer;
private bool requiresUniqueEmail;
private int maxInvalidPasswordAttempts;
private int passwordAttemptWindow;
private MembershipPasswordFormat passwordFormat;
private int minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters;
private int minRequiredPasswordLength;
private string passwordStrengthRegularExpression;
private MachineKeySection machineKey;
**private DBConnect dbConn;**
public override bool ChangePassword(string username, string oldPassword, string newPassword)
if (!ValidateUser(username, oldPassword))
return false;
ValidatePasswordEventArgs args = new ValidatePasswordEventArgs(username, newPassword, true);
if (args.Cancel)
if (args.FailureInformation != null)
throw args.FailureInformation;
throw new Exception("Change password canceled due to new password validation failure.");
SqlParameter[] p = new SqlParameter[3];
p[0] = new SqlParameter("@applicationName", applicationName);
p[1] = new SqlParameter("@username", username);
p[2] = new SqlParameter("@password", EncodePassword(newPassword));
bool retval = **dbConn.ExecuteSP("User_ChangePassword", p);**
return retval;
} //ChangePassword
public override void Initialize(string name, NameValueCollection config)
if (config == null)
throw new ArgumentNullException("config");
ConnectionStringSettings ConnectionStringSettings = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[config["connectionStringName"]];
if ((ConnectionStringSettings == null) || (ConnectionStringSettings.ConnectionString.Trim() == String.Empty))
throw new ProviderException("Connection string cannot be blank.");
connectionString = ConnectionStringSettings.ConnectionString;
**dbConn = new DBConnect(connectionString);
} //Initialize
} // SGIMembershipProvider

I have instantiated dbConn object within Initialize() event. My problem is that how could i dispose off this object when object of SGIMembershipProvider is disposed off. I know the GC will do this all for me, but I need to explicitly dispose off that object. Even I tried to override Finalize() but there is no such overridable method. I have also tried to create destructor for SGIMembershipProvider.

Custom Server Controls :: Custom Control's Constructor / User To Set That variable In The Properties Window After They Drag The Control Onto A Form?

Mar 4, 2010

I have a custom control which inherit from the Table class and in the constructor, it takes a an integer as an argument. There is no empty constructor.

Is there a way for the user to set that variable in the properties window after they drag the control onto a form.

I know some .NET controls, you can set the source for the parameter to different things like another control's property, QueryString using just the properties window.

Right now, I have to create the control dynamically. I read the query string and then created the object.

Creating Custom Objects For Wcf?

Oct 2, 2010

I have an existing web application that uses EF and POCO objects. I want to improve the client experience by exposing some of my objects through WCF(JSON). I have this working fine but where I am unsure is how to handle derived objects(not sure if that is the correct term) or IEnumerable anonymous objects if you will.

Let's say I have 3 tables structured like so:







This is obviously a one-to-many type relationship. I have my navigation properties setup correctly and getting strongly typed object properties works great. However, how do I send serialized anonymous type object(s) over the wire. Like an object that sends all instances that are equal to groupid=1 and include the names of the template and the object.Am I missing something or do I have to create another class object for WCF that would look like this:

WCF Object


I guess I could alter my tables to account for this but that seems wrong too. I know that IEnumerable objects can't be serialized and I know that throw away objects are probably not the way to go either. I want to do this the right way but I am not sure how to go about it.

Should I use hidden values? This is not possible if the List contains items of interface type, for example List<ICustomer> where ICustomer is an interface. Is there any other way to "save" the values on each postback? For example I may want to view validation error messages when the user submits the form and then the properties of the customer object must still be there..

WCF / ASMX :: Webservice Custom Objects As Input Parameters?

Nov 9, 2010

I have a fundamental question to ask about web services. I'm currently writing a service that has custom classes (lots of them). Let's say a car is one example. For some reason I was thinking that the service should expose these objects. However once I created a site to consume the service, it looks as though the classes are not meant to be exposed. It looks like the best practice is to take in a string which may be xml or not and convert that string into the object in the service code.(especially for error handling or input validation)

For example, if I had the web method:

public car getCar(int carId)
//code here to return car object

This will take a car ID and return a car object. It also shows all the elements in the SOAP request and response objects (as well as the WSDL) which can be to external developers. However, when trying to consume the service from a website (or reference it in my code), I then need access to the Car class (which implies i need to expose it through the services as well?).
