I have a problem with objContext.setComplete

Posted on 2001-06-20
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
Dear Friends,

     I have a problem when i complete my transaction and execute objContext.setComplete. It gives an error message object variable with block variable not set. I am using COM+ in my business services and data services. I have written the sample code which i follow in my procedures.

Public Function ValidateUser(passingArgs)as RetArgs
On Error Goto ErrHandler
   Dim objContext as COMSVCSLib.ObjectContext
   Set objContext = GetObjectContext()
   'Few Code Here
   objContext.SetComplete '->> This Generates an Error

   'After Successful completion of code when
   'i use SetComplete it shows an Error Message that
   'object variable with block variable not set.

   Exit Function

End Function

Waiting for your Answer.

Thanks in Advance

you should be able to call GetObjectContext.SetComplete
direct without a variable (in fact this is a more suitable solution)

Have you implemented the Object Control interface?

you'll need to add the lines:

Implements ObjectControl

Private Sub ObjectControl_Activate()

End Sub

Private Function ObjectControl_CanBePooled() As Boolean
    ObjectControl_CanBePooled = True
End Function

Private Sub ObjectControl_Deactivate()

End Sub


BTW has the object got its transaction mode property set to anything other than 0 - NotAnMTSObject?

I got the same error in the vbide.

Microsoft claims that SP2 for windows 2000 should fix that error.
I can?t upgrade to windows 2000, so I am using the following:  

If IsIDE = False Then
End If

Private Function IsIDE() As Boolean
  On Error Resume Next
  Debug.Assert 1 / 0
  If Err.Number = 0 Then
    IsIDE = False
    IsIDE = True
  End If
End Function

for nt4.0 you need to create a key : [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Transaction Server\Debug\RunWithoutContext]

you don't need to inplement Object Control interface or use Set objContext = GetObjectContext().

for debuging under windows 2000 you need to set
MTSTransactionMode to (NoTransactions or RequiresTransaction or UsesTransaction or RequiresNewTransaction)
by default you have : NotAnMTSObject :))
