    If you follow the example described here:

    http://lightswitchhelpwebsite.com/B...yment.aspx


    Everything will work just fone for about 5 minutes. then you will find that users cannot log into the DotNetNuke website anymore.

    The reason is that when they log in, the DotNetNuke core stored procedure, UpdateUser, gets stuck in a loop until it times out.

    When I reproduce this on my test machine, I can go into SQL Enterprise Manager and the following query will run until you stop it:

    exec dbo.UpdateUser @UserID=2,@PortalID=0,@FirstName=N'Administrator',@LastName=N'Account',@Email=N'Webmaster@ADefwebserver.com',@DisplayName=N'Administrator Account',@UpdatePassword=0,@Authorised=1,@RefreshRoles=0,@LastIPAddress=N'::1',@IsDeleted=0,@LastModifiedByUserID=-1

    The question of course is why? I can only suspsct it is that perhaps something odd is happening because the MachineKey was copied into the remote site and some bad parameters are now being passed to the stored procedure?

    I am trying to investigate this, but any ideas are appreciated!

    First update. It's not the paramteters passed to the stored procedure. I have another DotNetNuke website where I am the Admin Account and User 2. When I log in, the "UpdateUser" stored procedure in that site is run with the exact same parameters and it runs fine.



    Now I am looking "inside" the stored procedure...



    ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[UpdateUser]

    @UserID int,

    @PortalID int,

    @FirstName nvarchar(50),

    @LastName nvarchar(50),

    @Email nvarchar(256),

    @DisplayName nvarchar(100),

    @UpdatePassword bit,

    @Authorised bit,

    @RefreshRoles bit,

    @LastIPAddress nvarchar(50),

    @IsDeleted bit,

    @LastModifiedByUserID int

    AS

    UPDATE dbo.Users

    SET

    FirstName = @FirstName,

    LastName = @LastName,

    Email = @Email,

    DisplayName = @DisplayName,

    UpdatePassword = @UpdatePassword,

    LastIPAddress = @LastIPAddress,

    LastModifiedByUserID = @LastModifiedByUserID,

    LastModifiedOnDate = getdate()

    WHERE UserId = @UserID



    IF @PortalID IS NULL

    BEGIN

    UPDATE dbo.Users

    SET

    IsDeleted = @IsDeleted

    WHERE UserId = @UserID

    END

    ELSE

    BEGIN

    UPDATE dbo.UserPortals

    SET

    Authorised = @Authorised,

    RefreshRoles = @RefreshRoles,

    IsDeleted = @IsDeleted

    WHERE UserId = @UserID

    AND PortalId = @PortalID

    END

    This query (this is the first part of the "UpdateUser" stored procedure) simply will not complete when I try to run it in SQL Enterprise manager:

    DECLARE @RC int
    DECLARE @UserID int
    DECLARE @PortalID int
    DECLARE @FirstName nvarchar(50)
    DECLARE @LastName nvarchar(50)
    DECLARE @Email nvarchar(256)
    DECLARE @DisplayName nvarchar(100)
    DECLARE @UpdatePassword bit
    DECLARE @Authorised bit
    DECLARE @RefreshRoles bit
    DECLARE @LastIPAddress nvarchar(50)
    DECLARE @IsDeleted bit
    DECLARE @LastModifiedByUserID int

    -- TODO: Set parameter values here.
    Set @UserID=2
    Set @PortalID=0
    Set @FirstName=N'Administrator'
    Set @LastName=N'Account'
    Set @Email=N'Webmaster@ADefwebserver.com'
    Set @DisplayName=N'Administrator Account'
    Set @UpdatePassword=0
    Set @Authorised=1
    Set @RefreshRoles=0
    Set @LastIPAddress=N'::1'
    Set @IsDeleted=0
    Set @LastModifiedByUserID=-1

    UPDATE dbo.Users
    SET
    FirstName = @FirstName,
    LastName = @LastName,
    Email = @Email,
    DisplayName = @DisplayName,
    UpdatePassword = @UpdatePassword,
    LastIPAddress = @LastIPAddress,
    LastModifiedByUserID = @LastModifiedByUserID,
    LastModifiedOnDate = getdate()
    WHERE UserId = @UserID


    What could cause this? I have to stop and re-start SQL Server to get everything back to normal

    Ok the Users table is simply locked when this happens. It is nothing special about the "UpdateUser" stored procedure. Also it is only the "Admin" record in the User table. I can edit any other row but that one.

    So the question is now, what is locking that row in the users table?

    Ok it appears I have tracked this down.

    I needed to determine if the current user is an Administrator or not in my external LightSwitch application. the problem is LightSwitch places locks on tables when you connect to external data sources.

    So when I connected to the DotNetNuke Users table, LightSwitch locks the rows it is using. Locking the DotNetNuke Users table is a no no. The thing that sucks is I also get this even if I am using a View (like vw_UserRoles)

    I can use others methods such as a web service to get the information I need.

    The good news is that this is only related to connecting to DotNetNuke as an external datasource NOT related to running LightSwitch in an IFrame with DotNetNuke.

    A final note on this. The answer is to use a WCF RIA Dataservice. This is what I am using in the Things For Sale example at: http://lightswitchhelpwebsite.com/D...rSale.aspx

    One question I had is...how do you get your site to run so fast with DNN?  Is there any special configuration/hosting that you use?

    Latest Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Forum Threads That Have Answers

    following this code from this link: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/479cbc96-6ec2-4d9f-b2f8-a2b43a09111e/html-client-dynamically-count-records-in-a-collection-on-browse-screen?forum=lightswitch I have got my screen to count how many rows are present when the screen first loads. In my scenario I have a add button located on the bottom navigation bar. this opens up a dialog window where the user can add the relevant information. However when the user hits save, and is navigated back to the browse screen, the count still displays the previous value. If i was to refresh the page it updates but this is not what i am after, when i navigate back i want the value to add by one, am i missing something in this code?             screen.ExpanderLines.addChangeListener("state", function() {                     screen.countExp = screen.ExpanderLines.data.length;

    I have a browse screen to display query results in a table. This for a large table and there are 50+ query parameters that the user can enter.  The query parameters are all on a separate screen. 1.  I need a button on the separate screen that when clicked will clear (set null or undefined??) all of the parameters, to allow the user to reset the search.  The screen properties that are the parameters are of all different types (bool, string, details picker/entity, date).  Is there a way to get them all without having to do setPropertyName() for each one manually? 2. Related to question 1, is there a way to iterate through the properties and get a reference based on the type of property? I'm going to take a look at the contentItem properties and methods and try to get this working but was wondering if anyone knows any tricks before I spend hours digging around. Thanks!

    already an open datareader

    I get this error in Azure but not on my dev computer: there is already an open datareader associated with this command. When debugging Azure the error happens in a WCF RIA projet at this line (in a recursive method): if (!channel.ChannelCollection.IsLoaded) channel.ChannelCollection.Load(); Have you an idea to resolve this exception?

    I think this has been asked before, but darn I can't find it. I working with VS2013 on a Lightswitch desktop app. If I add a row to a SQL Server table via Lightswitch and the table has an Identity column, how do I find the value of the Identity column for the row I just added? I want to both tell it to the user and be able to retrieve the row later. Thanks in advance.
