Hello there,

I am in need of major help. I am trying to convert my ASP classic website to ASP.net. Now my problem is with reading and controlling of the data found in my SQL Server DB. I have managed to connecting to the database and read the records there and display them in a grid but I dont want that. Because of the design, my website requires me to place every field in its position and also use the Id of the record as a link to display more information of that record. In other words, I need to control each field of each record freely and place them at a position inside my default.aspx page as I please (meaning not by on Page Load or on click). I used to do this in classic ASP via recordset and Loop and then use it whereever I want and while calling on each field via the recordset. How can I do this in ASP.NET. For example convert the below code exactly as it is to ASP.net so that I can use freely. I have found many solution none of which works for me (gridview, dataadapter, etc.). The code is:

Function SetLanguage() 

Dim Sql,rs,langStr,lId,lLanguage,RqstSession 

RqstSession = Session("lngID")  'THIS COULD BE A VARIABLE SET AS FIXED OR PASSED ON TO THE SUB



langStr = "<select name="lang">"

set rs=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset") 

Sql="SELECT * FROM tblSystemLang WHERE lVisible = 1 AND lLimitations NOT LIKE '%<" & DeCrypt(Session("ClientId")) & ">%' ORDER BY lId ASC" 

rs.Open Sql,Connection_Variable,3,1 

while not rs.eof 

lId =rs("lId") 

lLanguage =rs("lLanguage") 

if Cint(RqstSession) = Cint(lId) then 

          langStr = langStr & "<option value=""" & lId & """ SELECTED>" & lLanguage & "</option>" & VbCrlf 

else 

          langStr = langStr & "<option value=""" & lId & """>" & lLanguage & "</option>" & VbCrlf 

end if 

rs.movenext 

wend 

 

rs.Close 

set rs=nothing 

set Sql=nothing 



langStr = langStr & "</select>"

SetLanguage = langStr 

 

End Function

Thanks

Thank you so much for responding back. After using your code and since I am using VB in my ASP.NET project, I get all errors from { to string to everything. I am deep need of this. I will sum up what I need. A small function that loop through an SQL statment and from there I can control any field in the table of the database so I can place it (position and design) as I please inside my ASP.NET page. Thanks Awny

You are right I can use the dropdownlist but then I cannot control which option is chosen as it all depends on the request.querystring() from previous pages. In ASP classic it was very to control anything from database to request.querystring in ASP.net I am having a hard time.

Hi this is the vb form of code

Public Function SetLanguage() As String
        Dim RqstSession As String, langStr As String, lId As String, lLanguage As String
        Dim Conn As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("UR COnnection String").ToString())
        Dim reader As SqlDataReader = Nothing
        RqstSession = Session("lngID").ToString()
        langStr = "<select name='lang'>"
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM tblSystemLang WHERE lVisible = 1 AND lLimitations NOT LIKE '" & Session("ClientId") & "' ORDER BY lId ASC", Conn)
        Try
            Conn.Open()
            reader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
            While reader.Read()
                lId = reader("lId").ToString()
                lLanguage = reader("lLanguage").ToString()
                If Integer.Parse(RqstSession) = Integer.Parse(lId) Then
                    langStr += ("<option value='" & lId & "' SELECTED>") + lLanguage & "</option>"
                Else
                    langStr += ("<option value='" & lId & "'>") + lLanguage & "</option>"
                End If
            End While
        Catch
        Finally
            reader.Close()
            Conn.Close()
        End Try
        Return langStr
    End Function

Try this and let me know......

Hello and thank you for your response. When I use the code I get an error of not using the propery

New

. I get an error for the connection string and then again for closing of the

reader.Close() Conn.Close()

. The error is this

System.NullReferenceException

. I have encountered this error many time and we must close any connection or instance we open. How can I resolve the above 2 problems including the connection string?

Thanks

If no means add it under conectionstrings tag.

No I haven't. Since it is a xml file, could you show me how? Thanks, Awny

Hello,

I have tried using the string and every time I run the code the explorer shuts down. I guess there is something wrong. Can you provide me with a piece of code please to figure this out as this is the last piece that is left hopefully.

Also, could you please tell in the web.config file how to use the below tags as listed in Microsoft (add is listed up in the file code I provided but the clear and remove I dont think they are to be used inside the web file but rather in the vb file just how? by setting the connection to nothing and close or is there anything else?):

<connectionStrings > 
   <add />
   <clear />
   <remove />
</connectionStrings>

Thanks so much and I know I have troubled you so much.
