Using Filters with SyncComm

Feb 3, 2010 at 5:36 PM

I've successfully implemented SyncComm within my project. The server side is hosted in a Windows Forms application and the client side is running on a WM6 device. Currently the device is syncing all rows in the tables from the host database. I would like to filter the data so the device passes up a filter ID to the host and only receives certain records. I've surfed for quite a while and don't see any straightforward or simple implementations of this. Can anyone out there assist?


Thanks, Donta

Thanks for the reply!! I have some working code to post in case someone else out there has the question...

On the server

 SqlParameter filterParameter = new SqlParameter("@driverID", SqlDbType.Int);
 string deliveryFilterClause = "driverID=@driverID";
var builder = new SqlSyncAdapterBuilder
   ChangeTrackingType = ChangeTrackingType.SqlServerChangeTracking,
   Connection = this.Connection as SqlConnection,
   SyncDirection = SyncDirection.Bidirectional,
   TableName = "Deliveries",
   FilterClause = deliveryFilterClause


On the client


new SyncParameter("@driverID", Settings.DriverID));
