Default ch02 - Binding to a Simple XML Document

Last example of the chapter, artists.xml and datacontrol2.aspx. Have followed the code in the book and even copied the code from the examples but to no avail. Error message reads:

I am not seeing what the problem is, any ideas?

Thanks

Is the '@' symbol required?

The '@' symbol is how it is in the book, whether it is required, I'm not sure.

Sorry, the '@' is required.

Here is how the book has it.

<%@ Page language="c#" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.Xml" %>

<script language="c#" runat="server">
void Page_Load()
{
    string xmlFilename = @"C:\BegASPNET\ch02\artists.xml";
    DataSet newDataSet = new DataSet();
    newDataSet.ReadXml(xmlFilename);
    DataGrid1.DataSource = newDataSet;
    DataGrid1.DataBind();
}
</script>

<html>
<head>
    <title>Data Grid Control example</title>
</head>
<body>
    <asp:DataGrid id="DataGrid1" runat="server" />
</body>
</html>

Note the path in red. Also, did you make it a virtual directory?

We are getting this same error on our page.

What we are doing is running a DTS job in SQL Server that recreates the XML file every five minutes so that a list of news items is "refreshed."

Unfortunately, our users are sometimes hitting that page on our site at the exact same time the XML file is getting re-generated, so they temporarily get the same error you're describing.

Kind of drag but I guess the answer is: don't have the XML file physically open while you're also trying to load it via your code.

What I did was to put it in Inetpub under wwwroot. The line that comes up red for me as an error is: newDataSet.ReadXml(xmlFilename);

Check whether the following syntax of the path is working or not, because the syntax for the path in c# is different

"C:\\inetpub\\wwwroot\\begASPNET_C\\ch02\\artists. xml"

or use the server.mappath option to detect the artists.xml...

Thanks and Regards,

Senthil Kumar M.
