Asynchronous RUle Not Marking Property Idle (Not Busy) After Completion

Asynchronous RUle Not Marking Property Idle (Not Busy) After Completion

I've got the following Async business rule:

    Private Class ServerFileNameExistsRule
        Inherits Csla.Rules.BusinessRule

        Public Shared CurrentP2FFileKeyProperty As Csla.Core.IPropertyInfo

        Public Sub New(ByVal primarypropertyServerFileName As Csla.Core.IPropertyInfo, ByVal propertyCurrentP2FFileKey As Csla.Core.IPropertyInfo)
            IsAsync = (ApplicationContext.ExecutionLocation <> ExecutionLocations.Server)
            Priority = 1

            CurrentP2FFileKeyProperty = propertyCurrentP2FFileKey

            InputProperties = New List(Of Csla.Core.IPropertyInfo)
        End Sub

        Protected Overrides Sub Execute(ByVal context As Csla.Rules.RuleContext)
            MyBase.Execute(context)  'Not sure this is necessary

            Dim command As New cmdP2FFileServerFileNameExists(context.InputPropertyValues(PrimaryProperty))
            Dim dp As DataPortal(Of cmdP2FFileServerFileNameExists) = New DataPortal(Of cmdP2FFileServerFileNameExists)()
            AddHandler dp.ExecuteCompleted, AddressOf ServerFileNameExistsCompleted
            dp.BeginExecute(command, context)

        End Sub

        Private Shared Sub ServerFileNameExistsCompleted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataPortalResult(Of cmdP2FFileServerFileNameExists))
            Dim context As Csla.Rules.RuleContext = CType(e.UserState, Csla.Rules.RuleContext)
            If e.Error IsNot Nothing Then
                context.AddErrorResult("Error checking for duplicate ServerFileName" & e.Error.ToString())
                If e.Object.ExistsKey > 0 And context.InputPropertyValues(CurrentP2FFileKeyProperty) <> e.Object.ExistsKey Then
                    context.AddErrorResult("This ServerFileName is already in use!")
                End If
            End If
        End Sub
    End Class

Once the rule completes the ServerFileName property is still flagged as Busy and I am unable to save the business object. Note that context.Complete is called ...

Anyone else encountering this issue?

Hi Greg,

Your rule only does async validation!!

The Execute method MUST test for IsAsync and implement both sync and async handling.

IE: Serverside must make a sync dataportal call and client side do an async.

That said, it doesn't explain why the property is still busy.

Did you debug and make sure that the callback is actually called. You may get unexpected
handling on Exceptions that are not serializable from the serverside like IO Exceptions.
That is assuming that your platform is .NET.
