Integrating postgresqldirect.net in visual web developer express 2005

Postby cosmo0 » Fri 28 Apr 2006 16:35

Hello :)

I'm pretty new to visual studio so this may sound stupid, but I can't figure it out.

I use visual web developer express 2005 to build an ASP.NET 2 site.
I wanted to try using PostgreSQL with this tool, but I can't make a new connexion.
If I go to data browser (sorry my soft is not in english and I don't remember the english name, where there are connexions to databases), and I want to create a new connexion, in data source, there are Oracle, SQL server and so on, but there isn't postgresql anywhere... is this normal, or am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks ! :)

Unfortunately, i can't figure out what is meant by data browser, but you can make a connexion by dropping SqlDataSource component onto the form and configuring it.

The database explorer ! (yay I found it ! :P )

I can't make a new SQL database connection in the database explorer.
Plus, when I open a webform, I can't access the PGSQL toolbox (the items are greyed out)...

I think "database explorer" is called "Server explorer" in fact.
Concerning PostgreSQLDirect toolbox: in VWD you can only use the components in runtime.
Concerning making a connection in the Server explorer: do you have professional version? Standard one doesn't support this.

ok thanks
I don't know what the "in runtime" part is referring to (I told you, i'm new to .net development)
I have the demo version, and I sure won't buy the professional version if I can't test the functionnality that I'm looking for :o

thanks anyway :)

If you use trial version this functionality should be supported.
"in run-time" means that you can declare any component in your code, "design-time" means that you may drop any component onto your form and configure it before running the application.
