Writing a basic web service and it works fine for a single row result, but if I wanted multiple results to be outputted, how do I change the response into an array? Or is that not how I would return multiple responses?


<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="webServices" %>

using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

[WebService(Namespace = "http://dev.domain.com/")]
[WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]

public class webServices  : System.Web.Services.WebService {
    public struct logResponse
    {
        public string Valid;
        public string Response;
    }
        
    [WebMethod]
    public logResponse lookupCustomer(string username, string password, string customernumber, string customername, string zipcode, string phonenumber, string emailaddress, string ordernumber, string invoicenumber) {
        logResponse cdResult;		
	string cString = System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["db"].ConnectionString;
        SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(cString);
        SqlCommand comm = new SqlCommand();
        SqlDataReader dr;
        int company = 0;
        cdResult.Valid = "";
        cdResult.Response = "";
        try
        {
            conn.Open();
            comm.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            comm.CommandText = "lookupCustomer";
            comm.Connection = conn;
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@username", username);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@password", password);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@customernumber", customernumber);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@customername", customername);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@zipcode", zipcode);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@phonenumber", phonenumber);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@emailaddress", emailaddress);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ordernumber", ordernumber);
            comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@invoicenumber", invoicenumber);
            dr = comm.ExecuteReader(System.Data.CommandBehavior.Default);
            comm.Parameters.Clear();
            
            while (dr.Read()) {
            	cdResult.Response = (string)dr["cm_name"];
            }
            
            return cdResult;
        }
        finally {
        }
    }
}

Dale ... I get the error ...

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

on the line ....

List<logResponse> TempResults = new List<logResponse>();


Thanks for your help on this

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.

   public struct logResponse
    {
        public string Valid;
        public string Response;

        public logResponse (string Valid, Response)
        {
          this.Valid = Valid;
          this.Response = Response;
        }
    }
