PartnerService partnerService = new PartnerService();
            EMSystems_HaveBed.com.emsystem.test.getUpdate requestArguement = new EMSystems_HaveBed.com.emsystem.test.getUpdate();
            EMSystems_HaveBed.com.emsystem.test.getUpdateResponse updateResponse = default(EMSystems_HaveBed.com.emsystem.test.getUpdateResponse);

            partnerService.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("user", "password");
            partnerService.PreAuthenticate = true;

            try
            {
                requestArguement.String_1 = "<?xml version='1.0'?><requestDefinition actionName='getHAvBEDStatus' systemName='EMResource' divisionName='1821'></requestDefinition>";
                updateResponse = partnerService.getUpdate(requestArguement);

                txtResult.Text = updateResponse.result.ToString();
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {

I would think that you could use an XmlDataSource, which would be configured to load the XML, and then bind to the GridView with the DataSourceID property.

The XmlDataSource.Data property is used to load a string into the data source:

I have been looking over the last sample, and have a couple questions.

-There is a reference to a database, but the database doesn't exist. Do I need to create a database for the sample to work?

-On line 33 of the default.aspx.cs
      byte[] buf = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(neNode.OuterXml);

Open in new window


when i run the code, I get an error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"


- I am trying to figure out how I can take the output of the web service call, and apply it using the sample. I understand how they bind the xml document to the grid view, but I'm not seeing how to take the web service response and do the same.

Cheers,
Brendan

Thank you for all of your help. I have realized that it is a bit more complicated than just binding directly to the web service. I am going to do some more research, and then give this another try.
