This is my first article on Windows Phone 7. This article is going to explain how to fetch data from SQL database using WCF service and show on a page in a Windows Phone 7 application.

Getting Started

Creating a Silverlight Application:

  • Open Visual Studio 2010.
  • Go to File => New => Project.
  • Select Silverlight Windows Phone from the Installed templates and choose the Windows Phone Application.
  • Enter the Name and choose the location.
  • Click OK.

Before proceeding further now make a new WCF Service Application like image 2.

Now let's start work on service part.

IService1.cs

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Web;
using System.Text;

namespace RajService
{
// NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the interface name "IService1" in both code and config file together.
    [ServiceContract]
publicinterfaceIService1
    {
        [OperationContract]
List<tbl_Rep_Profile> FindModelByModelId(int modelid);
 
        [OperationContract]
List<tbl_Rep_Profile> GetAllModels();
    }
}


Service1.svc

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Web;
using System.Text;

namespace RajService
{
// NOTE: You can use the "Rename" command on the "Refactor" menu to change the class name "Service1" in code, svc and config file together.
publicclassService1 : IService1
    {
publicList<tbl_Rep_Profile> FindModelByModelId(int modelid)
        {
DataClasses1DataContext context = newDataClasses1DataContext();
var res = from r in context.tbl_Rep_Profiles where r.UserId == modelid select r;
return res.ToList();
        }

publicList<tbl_Rep_Profile> GetAllModels()
        {
DataClasses1DataContext context = newDataClasses1DataContext();
var res = from r in context.tbl_Rep_Profiles
select r;
return res.Take(5).ToList();
        }
    }
}


Click on View in Browser to see WCF service is working fine or not.

We are done with service work here; now to do the pages work.

MainPage.xaml

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="Transparent">
<
Grid.RowDefinitions>
<
RowDefinition Height="*"/>
</
Grid.RowDefinitions>
<!--ContentPanel - place additional content here-->
<Grid x:Name="ContentPanel" Grid.Row="1" Margin="12,0,12,0">
<
ListBox Height="650" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="11,17,0,0" Name="listBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="434" >
<
ListBox.ItemTemplate>
<
DataTemplate>
<
StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
<
Image Source="{Binding Rep_Img_Name}" Width="150" Stretch="Uniform" HorizontalAlignment="Center" />
<
TextBlock Text="{Binding UserId}"/>
<
TextBlock Text="{Binding Rep_Title}"/>
<
TextBlock Text="{Binding Rep_FirstName}"/>
<
TextBlock Text="{Binding Rep_Email}"/>
</
StackPanel>
</
DataTemplate>
</
ListBox.ItemTemplate>
</
ListBox>

</Grid>
</
Grid>

MainPage.xaml.cs

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;
using Microsoft.Phone.Controls;
using WindowsPhoneApplication1.ServiceReference1;

namespace WindowsPhoneApplication1
{
publicpartialclassPage2 : PhoneApplicationPage
    {
public Page2()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

Service1Client svc = newService1Client();
            svc.GetAllModelsCompleted += newEventHandler<GetAllModelsCompletedEventArgs>(svc_GetAllModelsCompleted);
            svc.GetAllModelsAsync();
        }

void svc_GetAllModelsCompleted(object sender, GetAllModelsCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            listBox1.ItemsSource = e.Result;
        }
    }
}
