GetView not working for me using C# client


Morning All,

New to the forum and looking fwd to sharing my cb experience and wonderment.

i’m working on a couchbase app here as a proof-of-concept for some projects i would like to do.
So far things have gone quite well but there was a bit of learning curve for me regarding memcache%.

i’ve populated a cache with about 3 mm objects and i’m trying to query the data by indexing one of the fields (not querying key). Objects were serialized from anonymous types (?could be my problem depending on how they deserialize from view when i only select certain fields?).
So i’ve read that views are the answer as you can predefine them, gen indexes and specify what is returned.

when i exec GetView and try to traverse the enumerable i get this error:

Cannot deserialize the current JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) into type ‘Couchbase.IViewRow’ because the type requires a JSON object (e.g. {“name”:“value”}) to deserialize correctly

i’m hoping this has happened to someone else but, below are the details of my use case, with instrument as key for the view:

my json object

**this is my C# client code
var results = CouchbaseManager.Instance.GetView(“dev_test”, “ticker”);

foreach (var row in results)
Console.WriteLine("Row ID: " + row.ItemId);
Console.WriteLine("Row Key: " + row.ViewKey[0]);
Console.WriteLine("Row Value: " + row.Info[“value”]);

i greatly appreciate any help provided




Try using GetView and the dynamic keyword as the T type:

var results = CouchbaseManager.Instance.GetView("dev_test", "ticker"); foreach (var row in results) { Console.WriteLine(row); }



thanks for responding John.
yes that worked, it created a simple array[], which it’s supposed to but i was hoping to get a list back with the metadata.
i’m trying to bind to a grid (fat client) and execute some queries for large data sets.

this is my C# call
var results = CouchbaseManager.Instance.GetView(“dev_test”, “ticker”).Key(“BPSW10 CMPN Curncy”).Limit(1000).Select(b=>b);




Amaix14 -

I see…what happens when you the following overload of GetView(key, value, urlEncode):

var result = Client.GetView("breeds", "all_dogs", true); foreach (var dog in result) { Console.WriteLine(dog.Info.First().Value); }

There is an existing bug, that may be causing the problem. You can read more about it here:

The fix will be in the May 2014 release.



that worked!

ok understood. always good to confirm i’m looking at/using this product the right way.

thanks Jeff.
