Data changed notification? RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have got this function returning data from a database to a treelist.datasource.

    List<Table> GetAllTables()
        var tables = from table in db.Tables
        orderby table.table_name
        select table;
        return tables.ToList();


    treelist.datasource = GetAllTables();

    But I would like the treelist to get updated automaticley when data was changed in the database.

    How do I do that?

  • Look into using ObservableCollection<T> Class to see if it works for you.

  • If you are wanting data to be updated if the data on the server changes, independent of your application, you will need to monitor the database server's events or have your own objects poll the server.

  • Hi Michael,

    How you got an exampel on how to monitor the database server's events?
    And maby an exampel on how to make an object that polls the server for changes?

    You can also build your own objects that track certain tables.

  • Hi Michael,

    I don't think that I can use the links that you provided.
    They seam to monitor changes to the sql server.

    What I want is to retrive data from the database. But if the data that I have retrived from the database gets change I would want to get notified.

    Maby it is easyer to create a object that execute the linq query each 10-20 second.
