Assuming I do not have recursion or an infinite loop (I have checked), what should I be looking for as a possible cause of a stackoverflow exception in this line of the attached code..

SQLCeAdapter.UpdateCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

Open in new window


Public Function UpdateSQLwithVars(ByVal strsql As String, ByVal vars As ArrayList, ByRef lex As LastException) As Boolean


        Dim SQLCeAdapter As System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeDataAdapter = Nothing
        Dim sparm As SqlServerCe.SqlCeParameter
        Dim retval As Boolean = True
        Dim sqlcomm As New SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand
        sqlcomm.Connection = _conobj
        sqlcomm.CommandText = strsql

        Try
            SQLCeAdapter = New System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeDataAdapter(strsql, _conobj)
            SQLCeAdapter.UpdateCommand = sqlcomm
            For Each sparm In vars
                SQLCeAdapter.UpdateCommand.Parameters.Add(sparm)
            Next
            SQLCeAdapter.UpdateCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

        Catch ex As Exception
            retval = False
            lex.ErrorMessage = ex.Message
            If Not ex.InnerException Is Nothing Then
                lex.ErrorMessage = lex.ErrorMessage & vbCrLf & ex.InnerException.Message
            End If

        Finally
            If Not SQLCeAdapter Is Nothing Then
                SQLCeAdapter.Dispose()
            End If

        End Try

        Return retval

    End Function

does the strsql is a simple query? does it call a stored procedure which might cause this?

"UPDATE CommandCodes SET VerbalCommand = @xVerbalCommand Where CommandNo = @xCommandNo"

sqlvars(1) = New System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeParameter
sqlvars(1).ParameterName = "@xVerbalCommand"
sqlvars(1).SqlDbType = System.Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar
 sqlvars(1).Value = vc.VerbalCommand    (= "Start your engine.")


sqlvars(10) = New System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeParameter
sqlvars(10).ParameterName = "@xCommandNo"
sqlvars(10).SqlDbType = System.Data.SqlDbType.Int
sqlvars(10).Value = vc.CommandNo    (= 5)

vars = New ArrayList
vars.Add(sqlvars(1))
vars.Add(sqlvars(10))

CommandCodes Table:
-------------------------------------
CommandNo Int(4)
VerbalCommand nvarchar(300)

Stack overflow means endless circular execution. Do you have OnUpdate triggers?

It was not really the answer, but with what I gave you to work with, it was a good attempt.  ( I stated that I had checked for a circular execution in the code, but I did not check closely enough!)
