Windows CE 5.0 Project Dynamic Web Service Url problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-372819865 posted


    I'm working on a mobile project. I have a web service which has static url. I want to make it dynamic.

    It's possible to change it from the properties but it does not change reference.cs file.

    Static url stays there without any change.

    If I do same thing in a class library project reference.cs automatically changes  ...

    Even System.Configuration does not have ConfiguationSettings or ConfigurationManager... 

    So what is wrong with Mobile project ?
    How can I configure web service url from config file without any compilation in  mobile project?

    Hi UBGandalf, 

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to make your web reference proxy URL dynamic in Visual Studio. Hope this article helps:

    Hi Zhao,

    That article was my starting point.  

    As I mentioned earlier  I don't have the System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings under  the System.Configuration.

    My web service reference is under a Mobile Project. This could be the reason.

     So the article's solution does not work for me.

     Thank you

    Thanks for the reply florim,

     I tried your solution, it compiled but I got an error on runtime.

    Something like :  Could not load type 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationException' from assembly 'System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969DB8053D3322AC'.

    I'm really not comfortable with getting System.Configuration.dll from Framework\v2.0.50727 folder.

     Why a mobile project's System.Configuration  does not have ConfigurationManager  or ConfigurationSettings ?

     Getting a value from a config file is an unwanted issue ?

     Why why why [:)] ?
