Using SData from a Separate .NET 2.0 DLL in SalesLogix Web

Question: I would like to click a link button in a GridView, have that bring up the SalesLogix Web contact portal page, and have the contact in the details view.  Is it possible to use SData from a separate .NET 2.0 DLL?

Answer: You can certainly do this, see below:

WebClient client = new WebClient();

client.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(“SLXUser”, “SLXPassword”);

client.Headers.Add(HttpRequestHeader.ContentType, “application/atom+xml”);

string result = client.DownloadString(http://server:port/sdata/slx/dynamic/contacts(contactid);

if (result[0] == (Char)65279)
result = result.Substring(1);

XElement contact = XDocument.Load(new StringReader(result)).Descendants(ATOM + “entry”).First();

In the ‘contact’ variable you have all the data from the sdata portal.
