GridView bug?


P

I have a data source that returns an array of objects casted as an interface
type. The interface type is all I have, I do not have the implementing class
to cast as.

Below this is what GridView gives me in response.

What is it doing invoking Activator.CreateInstance? I can see where you
would want data copied to edit and perform validation when editing, but
that's what MemberwiseClone and Serialize/Deserialze is for. And I'm not
editing, this error is thrown on DataBind.

Also, the actual class that implements the interface *does* have a
parameterless constructor.

Is this a bug?

Hi,

From this stack i would say that Your problem is around Your datasource.
When You use ObjectDataSource it will try to create an instance of You
datasource class to be able to call the select method on it(unless the
select method is static). For this reason it expects to find a parameterless
constructor on the datasource. If You don't have/want to make any You can
handle the ObjectCreating (
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...controls.objectdatasource.objectcreating.aspx )
event to create an object as You wish.

Hope this helps.

Ahh good eye.

It was a static method but I'm just going to dump using the designer.

Problem solved!

Thanks,
