SignalR performing the same call multiple times. RRS feed

  • Question

  • User228832095 posted


    I'm having issues getting signalr to simply just update my notifications once, when a change is made. Currently if I make a database call that changes a table signalR initiates the same call an extra 3 or 4 times and the more times I refresh the page the more times the calls are made when a data change occurs. I'm not sure if it is initiating additional on change events or what it is doing. Im using signalR 1 with MVC 5. Please see the code I have so far below: 

          readonly string _connString =
            private SqlDependency dependency;
            public async Task<List<NotificationsModel>> GetAllMessages(Int64 userId)
                var messages = new List<NotificationsModel>();
                using (var connection = new SqlConnection(_connString))
                    using (var command = new SqlCommand(@"SELECT ([NotificationID_PK]) as 'NotificationID' FROM [dbo].[Notifications] where [DateTime] >=" + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString(), connection))
                        command.Notification = null;
                        dependency = new SqlDependency(command);
                        dependency.OnChange += new OnChangeEventHandler(dependency_OnChange);
                        if (connection.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
                        var reader = await command.ExecuteReaderAsync();
                return messages;
            private void dependency_OnChange(object sender, SqlNotificationEventArgs e)
                if (e.Type == SqlNotificationType.Change)
                dependency = sender as SqlDependency;
                dependency.OnChange -= new OnChangeEventHandler(dependency_OnChange);

    Javascript Function to initiate connection:

    $(function () {
    // Declare a proxy to reference the hub.
    var notifications = $.connection.messagesHub;

    // Create a function that the hub can call to broadcast messages.
    notifications.client.updateMessages = function () {

    // Start the connection.
    $.connection.hub.start().done(function () {
    }).fail(function (e) {

    Hi Frijx,

    Please share the implementation of you hub method SendMessages and javascript function getAllMessages().

    Besides, please set breakpoint in SqlDependency OnChange method and check the execution of your code.
