Release Notes - Layer2 Business Data List Connector
V7.0.4 (11/2015)



  • When editing the End Time (EndDate) field in an event, BDLC ran into an error ("Bad parameter passed to Web Server Extensions.  Check the information you entered and try again.")
  • Some error messages now display more user friendly content.
  • Using edit forms based on InfoPath (customized by SharePoint Designer) lead to handle local dates as UTC.
  • When using the BDLC API from within a web service, the write back throws errors and the update was errored out. The API now provides a method to register your webservice to BDLC. Best is to register the asmx address of your service.
     Code snippet:
      BusinessDataListConnectorLogic logic = new BusinessDataListConnectorLogic();

      SPList list = web.Lists[listid];
      logic.Init(web, list);
      logic.RegisterCustomUrl("BdlcService.asmx"); // <= this is an example!
      result = logic.UpdateList();
