Hi there!

I am trying to store some user information using the CreateUserWizard in addition to the information which is otherwise stored in the membershipdb ASPNETDB.mdf (First name, last name, address etc.). This information will be stored in another MSSQL2005-database.

The strategy is to gather the information from a number of textboxes in a CreateUserWizard and add the information to a table.

The code below shows what I've got. Unfortunately I get the following error messages

The type or namespace name 'SqlConnection' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

The type or namespace name 'SqlConnection' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

The name 'ConnectionString' does not exist in the current context.

Can anyone explain this (and give a sollution)?

protected void CreateUserWizard1_CreatingUser(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(ConnectionString);

       
        string Q_ADD_USER = @"INSERT INTO Users(UserName, FirstName, LastName) VALUES (@UserName, @FirstName, @LastName)";

        SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(Q_ADD_USER, myConnection);


        string userName = CreateUserWizard1.UserName;

        string firstName = ((TextBox)CreateUserWizard1.CreateUserStep.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("txtFirstName")).Text;
        string lastName = ((TextBox)CreateUserWizard1.CreateUserStep.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("txtLastName")).Text;

        myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@UserName", userName);
        myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@FirstName", firstName);
        myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@LastName", lastName);
        myConnection.Open();
        myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
        myConnection.Close();
       
    }

ooops!

The second error message goes like this:

The type or namespace name 'SqlCommand' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Sound like you are missing the "using" directive for the System.Data.SqlClient namespace. Add the following at the top of your code file:

     using System.Data.SqlClient;

Or, fully-qualify your object types in code:

      System.Data.SqlConnection myConnection = new System.Data.SqlConnection(ConnectionString);

Great start. Seams like I still have a lot to learn...

For some reason I can't get the compiler to accept the "using" anywhere in the code, because it is an "invalid token"... I can still use the fully-qualify your object types though.

Anyway, I still have a problem with the connection string. It says "The name 'ConnectionString' does not exist in the current context.". How can I access the correct context?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Presumably you have ConnectionString defineds as a variable somewhere. Where is it in relation to the code you posted ?

Also:

    using System.Data.SqlClient;

needs to go at the very top of the code file, outside of any classes/methods, etc.

The connectionstring is defined in the web.config file - and I am trying to access it from my code which is executed when a CreateUserWizard1_CreatingUser occurs in a web page.

In that case you need to use:

        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["YourConnectionStringName"].ConnectionString);
