I’m using Entities with VistaDB (embeded database from gibraltar sw), in Asp.Net Application.

My code is like:

var clientList = model.Clients.Select(x => new GymClient { LastName = x.LastName }).ToList();
dataGridView1.DataSource = clientList;

If I use next connection string, app throws error after set datasource in datagridview. Local database is in bin folder

static string ConnectionString => $”Data Source=\”{HttpRuntime.BinDirectory}\\{DatabaseFile}\”;Open Mode=NonExclusiveReadWrite;Password=\”{SensistiveEncriptionKey}\”;Pooling=true”;

Stacktrace:

NullReferenceException

Next connection string works ok, but you need create App_Data folder in project, and put local database there. This way no error throws, if it is useful for you.

static string ConnectionString => $”Data Source=\”|DataDirectory|\\{DatabaseFile}\”;Open Mode=NonExclusiveReadWrite;Password=\”{SensistiveEncriptionKey}\””;

Hi Ser,

the problem in your code is HttpRuntime.BinDirectory which is null in Wisej.

You can find ways to determine the right PATH in this discussion:

Hope that helps.

Best regards
Frank
