Retreiving User Details


I am using the following web method to retreive users details:-

public class Person


public string user_id, username, password, email, avatar, date_added, real_name, location, website, occupation, interests, forum_posts;


[WebMethod(Description = "This web method will display the profile of specific users.")]public Person User_Details(int id)


Person user = new Person();

const string connStr = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0; " + "Data Source=|DataDirectory|forum.mdb;";

OleDbConnection dbConn = new OleDbConnection(connStr);

string sqlStr = "SELECT [user_id], [username], [password_test], [avatar], [date_added], Email, [real_name] " +"[location], [website], [occupation], [interests], [forum_posts] FROM members WHERE user_id = '" + id + "'";


OleDbCommand dbCommand = new OleDbCommand(sqlStr, dbConn);

OleDbDataReader dbReader = dbCommand.ExecuteReader();while (dbReader.Read())


user.user_id = dbReader["user_id"].ToString();

user.username = dbReader["username"].ToString(); = dbReader["email"].ToString();

user.avatar = dbReader["avatar"].ToString();

user.date_added = dbReader["date_added"].ToString();

user.real_name = dbReader["real_name"].ToString();

user.location = dbReader["location"].ToString(); = dbReader["website"].ToString();

user.occupation = dbReader["occupation"].ToString();

user.interests = dbReader["interests"].ToString();user.forum_posts = dbReader["forum_posts"].ToString();



return user;


the website i am creating is a forum. Here users can click on other users names and view their profile.. What i need to do is consume this web service so that i can do this.. but i dont know how exactly to do it?

I did try with the following code..

localhost.Service myws = new localhost.Service();

localhost.Person member = new localhost.Person();

member.user_id = Request.QueryString["ID"];

Label1.Text = member.username;

Label2.Text = member.date_added;

But it does not work, the querystring holds the user_id of the user so i thought from this it would be easy to pull out everything else..

Any help would be much appreciated.

It looks like you need to call the web service:

Person member = myws.User_Details(userid);
