Disconneted dataset example
I have a web application (Asp.net) and now I need to make a dotnet win client so people can view/modify and add new records to the application on local not conneted computer. Later when conneted they can hit some button to add all their changes back to the database and also to get newer version of the data in the database.
I would start by reading/learing ADO.NET. For a little insite I will explain that all datasets are disconnected, it's how they work. All data management in ADO.NET is disconnected.
I hate to say it but you need to learn to read.
Don't know if you will ever see this answer but one way you could do it is use the DataSet WriteXML, WriteXMLSchema methods which basically writesout the entire Dataset (data and schema) to some XML files.
One problem the XML files, I would think, is that you have to manually determine the state. Thus you would have to go record by record and see which ones need to be updated to the database (inserts/deletes?) or brute force each one.
