Accessing an array through a WSDL

Part of this is working.  I can get the MyID to show and FirstName, but do I return an ArrayOfPizzaSales value for FacName based on strMyID?

viviendo.ResidentService RS= new viviendo.ResidentService();
viviendo.CustomerResult RSA = new Viviendo.CustomerResult();
vividendo.PizzaSales PS = new viviendo.PizzaSales();

strMyID = tbMyID.Text;
try
{

RSA = RS.getCustomer(strMyID);

litMyID.Text = RSA.MyID;
litFirstName.Text = RSA.FirstName;

litFacType.Text = PS.FacName; //not working.
}

Thanks!

How did you generate the ResidentService, CustomerResult, and PizzaSales classes?

I'm trying to access the web serviced share with me.  I didn't actually create this WSDL or classes in the WSDL.

When I debug, add a toggle point to RSA = RS.getCustomer(strMyID); in VS I can see the field and records being returned that I want when I mouse over and drill down.    So I thought I could just use litFacType.Text = PS.FacName but I am getting a NULL value.

Well, this line:

vividendo.PizzaSales PS = new viviendo.PizzaSales();

Open in new window


...just creates a new instance of a class within your program. It's not actually talking to the webservice. Talking to the web service occurs in this line:

RSA = RS.getCustomer(strMyID);

Open in new window


When you call the functions on the proxy object, you are actually making calls out to the webservice. Any data classes (e.g. PizzaSales) just hold data; they don't actually communicate with the webservice itself.

So the reason you are getting the null error is because the class doesn't actually have any data in it. You need to populate it by calling one of the service's functions.

Thanks for helping me think that one out.  I was able to call a service function and populate it.  I appreciate it!
