Extending System.Data.Linq.DataContext

By : Kezzer
Source: Stackoverflow.com

I have a class reflecting my dbml file which extends DataContext, but for some strange reason it's telling me

System.Data.Linq.DataContext' does not contain a constructor that takes '0' arguments"

I've followed various tutorials on this and haven't encountered this problem, and VS doesn't seem to able to fix it.

Here's my implementation

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.Linq;
using System.Data.Linq.Mapping;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Text;
using IntranetMvcAreas.Areas.Accounts.Models;

namespace IntranetMvcAreas
  partial class ContractsControlDataContext : DataContext
    public IMultipleResults procCC_Contract_Select(
        [Parameter(Name = "ContractID", DbType = "Int")] System.Nullable<int> ContractID,
        [Parameter(Name = "ResponsibilityKey", DbType = "Int")] System.Nullable<int> ResponsibilityKey,
        [Parameter(Name = "ExpenseType", DbType = "Char")] System.Nullable<char> ExpenseType,
        [Parameter(Name = "SupplierID", DbType = "Int")] System.Nullable<int> SupplierID)

      IExecuteResult result = this.ExecuteMethodCall(this, (MethodInfo)(MethodInfo.GetCurrentMethod()), ContractID, ResponsibilityKey, ExpenseType, SupplierID);
      return (IMultipleResults)result.ReturnValue;

And it's ContractsControlDataContext that's pointed at as the problem

(btw, this has no relation to a very recent post I made, it's just I'm working on the same thing)


It's probably worth clarifying this, so please read very carefully.

If you do not extend DataContext in the partial class, then ExecuteMethodCall isn't accessible.

'Intranet.ContractsControlDataContext' does not contain a definition for 'ExecuteMethodCall' and no extension method 'ExecuteMethodCall' accepting a first argument of type 'Intranet.ContractsControlDataContext' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Maybe I'm missing something incredibly stupid?


I think perhaps Visual Studio struggled here, but I've relied entirely on auto-generated code. When right clicking on the database modeling language design view and hitting "View Code" it automagically creates a partial class for you within a specific namespace, however, this namespace was wrong. If someone could clarify this for me I would be most appreciative.

The .designer.cs file sits in namespace Intranet.Areas.Accounts.Models, however the .cs file (partial class generated for the .designer.cs file by Visual Studio) was in namespace Intranet. Easy to spot for someone more experienced in this area than me.

The real problem now is, who's answer do I mark as correct? Because many of you contributed to finding this issue.
