Stored Procedure Creation

To create stored procedures requires straight text processing. To make the process simpler, I used a StringBuilder. Stored procedure parameters are created by looping through the columns of a table, using the column name directly. So if a column is dbo.tblEvents.EventID, it will be used directly and the parameter name will be @EventID. Column names work the same way; they use only the name of the column, so the "@" sign does not need appended to the beginning.

Below is the generation of a selection procedure. GetShortTableName gets the name of the table without the schema prefix, and RenderColumnList renders a vertical list of columns, with or without the "@" and with or without the data type.

Listing 10

private void GenerateSelectProc(TreeViewItem item)
{
      string tableName = item.Header.ToString();
      StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
 
      builder.AppendLine(string.Format("create procedure dbo.Select{0}", 
       this.GetShortTableName(tableName)));
      builder.AppendLine();
      builder.AppendLine("as");
      builder.AppendLine();
 
      builder.Append("select");
      this.RenderColumnList(builder, item, falsefalse);
      builder.AppendLine(string.Format("from\t{0}", tableName));
 
      this.SelectProcedure.Text = builder.ToString();
}

The table_name is the field returned; in VB 6, you have to use ADO recordset to loop through the rows and get the table_name field, to get the list of the tables.

This presents a good start toward creating Stored Procs; however, I can see several limitations in it. Perhaps the most glaring limitation is the fact that it appears to only facilitate the creation of very basic SP's and, while that is useful, I am assisting C#/ASP.Net developers in the creation of much more complex SP's.

This is interesting and I can see a very good use for this type of programming in my current project. One reservation I have though is the use of the WPF. Specifically the Presentation part of WPF.
