Static shared data connection provider?

P: n/a
I like the drag-and-drop accessibility of dragging a table to a Web Forms
designer and seeing a SqlDataAdapter automatically created for me.. being
able to create a DataSet from that is fun and exciting, because now with
this schema based data outline Visual Studio provides me with a typed class
for managing data complete with Intellisense menus exposing my own field
names as C# object properties ... cool ..

Anyway, I have a problem. I am building this site for a client who hosts
their own database, so my database is a test database. I have a different
database connection string in my web.config file than my client's connection
string in their web.config file. That file is the only file I want to differ
between my development environment and the deployment environment.

So now how do I get this cool functionality? I don't want to test and debug
using live data. I'm stuck now because the connection string in the created
connection object when dragging and dropping data adapters is hard-coded,
and worse it is hard-coded into the specific web forms I'm dragging to.

So I suppose I could change the connection string at runtime, but I would
really rather not have to do this for every web form that uses it. Is there
a way I can clean this up and consolidate my connection string while using
this functionality?

Hi Jon,

Our solution is to detect the servername at runtime using code:

Dim strSERVER_NAME as string
strSERVER_NAME = Replace(Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME"), ".", "_")
strDataBaseServer = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings(strSERVER_NAME &
"_DataSource")

and store the appropriate value for its database in the web.config file.

<add key="localhost_DataSource" value="sqlserverdev" />
<add key="www_mysite_com_DataSource" value="sqlserverproduction" />

The application automatically finds its data wherever it is run.
Does this help?

Thank you, Ken, for effectively wasting my time under the guise of help.
Actually, I do thank you (sincerely) for trying to help, but it would be
more helpful if you actually read what I asked.

I already said that I store the connection string in the web.config file and
could refer to it at runtime.

My question is regarding the use of the IDE's designer (in VS.Net) for the
OleDbAdapter. How do I cause it to refer to the web.config connection string
rather than have it hard-code a connection object, in an inaccessible
fashion being as it is in the "DO NOT MODIFY" section, for every INSERT,
SELECT, UPDATE, and DELETE it may want to do?

I've decided to throw out the use of the IDE's Data toolbox drag-and-drop
abilities, unless someone can give me a solution. What a tragic loss of
productivity though.

I've discussed this with the VS.NET developers. I think it would be an
important feature to add for VS.NET 2005. I'll bring it up again.

*sigh* Basically what I want is the ability to generate an OleDbDataAdapter on the fly, complete with its Update and Delete and Insert and Select commands readily available for automatic updates with DataSets, but while having full web.config control of the connection object.

Well, I've written up a temporary workaround. Note that this is NOT thoroughly tested, and is probably very buggy. It's a prototype, and it works good enough for me for now ... I think ...

[code follows]

public static OleDbDataAdapter GenerateTableDataAdapter(string tableName, string[] keyFields, string whereConditional) {
OleDbConnection dbConn = DbConnection;
OleDbDataReader dr = Db.ExecQueryCmd("SELECT * FROM " + tableName);
ArrayList fieldsAR = new ArrayList();
for (int f=0; f<dr.FieldCount; f++) {
fieldsAR.Add(dr.GetName(f));
}
string[] fields = (string[])fieldsAR.ToArray(typeof(string));
ArrayList al = new ArrayList();
foreach (string field in fields) {
al.Add(new System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping(field, field));
}

new System.Data.Common.DataTableMapping("Table", "Users", mappings)});

string sSQL = "SELECT ";
foreach (string field in fields) {
sSQL += field + ", ";
}

sSQL += " FROM " + tableName;
if (whereConditional != null && whereConditional != "")

OleDbCommand selectCmd = new OleDbCommand(sSQL, dbConn);

Hm no doesn't work .. no way to debug this thing :`(

Tells me "invalid syntax near ',' " but there's no way to see the ACTUAL sql used in the update query with the ?'s. I'm confused .. and tired ..

Hm no doesn't work .. no way to debug this thing :`(

Tells me "invalid syntax near ',' " but there's no way to see the ACTUAL sql used in the update query with the ?'s. I'm confused .. and tired ..

da.Update(dsUsers);

*sigh* Basically what I want is the ability to generate an OleDbDataAdapter on the fly, complete with its Update and Delete and Insert and Select commands readily available for automatic updates with DataSets, but while having full web.config control of the connection object.

Well, I've written up a temporary workaround. Note that this is NOT thoroughly tested, and is probably very buggy. It's a prototype, and it works good enough for me for now ... I think ...

[code follows]

public static OleDbDataAdapter GenerateTableDataAdapter(string tableName, string[] keyFields, string whereConditional) {
OleDbConnection dbConn = DbConnection;
OleDbDataReader dr = Db.ExecQueryCmd("SELECT * FROM " + tableName);
ArrayList fieldsAR = new ArrayList();
for (int f=0; f<dr.FieldCount; f++) {
fieldsAR.Add(dr.GetName(f));
}
string[] fields = (string[])fieldsAR.ToArray(typeof(string));
ArrayList al = new ArrayList();
foreach (string field in fields) {
al.Add(new System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping(field, field));
}
OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM " + tableName, dbConn);
System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping[] mappings = (System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping[])al.ToArray(typeof(System.Data.Common.DataColumnMa pping));
da.TableMappings.AddRange(new System.Data.Common.DataTableMapping[] {
new System.Data.Common.DataTableMapping("Table", "Users", mappings)});

string sSQL = "SELECT ";
foreach (string field in fields) {
sSQL += field + ", ";
}
if (sSQL.EndsWith(", ")) sSQL = sSQL.Substring(0, sSQL.Length - 2);
sSQL += " FROM " + tableName;
if (whereConditional != null && whereConditional != "")
sSQL += " WHERE " + whereConditional;
OleDbCommand selectCmd = new OleDbCommand(sSQL, dbConn);
da.SelectCommand = selectCmd;
sSQL = "INSERT INTO " + tableName + " (";
foreach (string field in fields) {
sSQL += field + ", ";
}
