Few weeks ago I was having problems reading a timestamp value from the SafeDataReader. Luckily, I was able to figure it out soon enough. Now I am having a tough time getting the new timestamp value from an OUTPUT Command parameter.
From the SafeDataReader I was able to do this:
byte _lastmodif = new byte[ 8 ];
dr.GetBytes("lastmodif", 0, _lastmodif, 0, 8);
The .GetBytes appears to do the trick.
With the Command (OUTPUT) parameter I have tried this - among many other:
_lastmodif = (byte)(cm.Parameters["@NewLastModif"].Value);
But I keep getting runtime errors.
In VB I was always able to do this:
mlastmodif = CType(cm.Parameters("@NewLastModif").Value, Byte())
Would appreciate a hint or two. Needless to say, I have gone through almost every Csla demo and the Videos and the Csla C# book, but cannot find an example that shows Command Output parameter.
I do it this way...
private byte _tStamp;
SqlParameter parmTStamp = new SqlParameter("@NewTStamp", SqlDbType.Timestamp);
parmTStamp.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
_tStamp = (byte)parmTStamp.Value;
You are absolutely correct. I was not creating my OUTPUT parameter for the timestamp field correctly. Since my VB code in a previous App was working fine, I went back to see what the difference was. And there I was creating my OUTPUT parameter exactly as you have given. So everything is back on track now. Thanks.
