XPInstantFeedbackView.DismissSession Event

Occurs when the XPInstantFeedbackView no longer needs the Session it used to retrieve objects from the data store.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v21.1.dll


public event EventHandler<ResolveSessionEventArgs> DismissSession

Event Data

The DismissSession event's data class is ResolveSessionEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Session Specifies the session to be used to load and save persistent objects.


Handle this event to dispose of a Session if the session was created manually in the ResolveSession event handler. If you used the ResolveSession event handler to assign an object to the Tag field, you can use the DismissSession event to access the object. If you did not handle the ResolveSession event, in most scenarios you do not need to handle the DismissSession event.


This example demonstrates how to initialize an XPInstantFeedbackView to retrieve data from a “Person.Contact” data table (included in the AdventureWorks database shipped with MS SQL Server). The Person_Contact persistent class is declared and mapped to the “Person.Contact” data table, using the PersistentAttribute attribute. Then, this class is used as a parameter in the XPInstantFeedbackView constructor.

using DevExpress.Xpo;
using DevExpress.Xpo.DB;
using DevExpress.Data.Filtering;

// The persistent class describing the "Person.Contact" table 
// from the AdventureWorks SQL database
public class Person_Contact : XPLiteObject {        
    public System.Int32 ContactID {
        get { return fContactID; }
        set { SetPropertyValue(nameof(ContactID), ref fContactID, value); }
    System.Int32 fContactID;

    public string FirstName {
        get { return fFirstName; }
        set { SetPropertyValue(nameof(FirstName), ref fFirstName, value); }
    string fFirstName;

    public string LastName {
        get { return fLastName; }
        set { SetPropertyValue(nameof(LastName), ref fLastName, value); }
    string fLastName;

public partial class Form1 : Form {
    public Form1() {
        // ...
        // Create a filter that selects records where last names start with 'A'     
        CriteriaOperator criteria = CriteriaOperator.Parse("[LastName] LIKE ?", "A%");
        // Specify the properties that will be available for binding
        ServerViewProperty[] displayableProperties = new ServerViewProperty[]{
            new ServerViewProperty("FirstName", SortDirection.Ascending, CriteriaOperator.Parse("[FirstName]")),
            new ServerViewProperty("LastName", SortDirection.None, CriteriaOperator.Parse("[LastName]"))
        // Initialize an XPInstantFeedbackView data source 
        // supplying data from the Person.Contact data table     
        XPInstantFeedbackView instantDS = new XPInstantFeedbackView(
            typeof(Person_Contact), displayableProperties, criteria);
        // Handle the ResolveSession event, 
        // to provide a Session to the XPInstantFeedbackView
        instantDS.ResolveSession += instantDS_ResolveSession;
        // Handle the DismissSession event, to dispose of the Session
        instantDS.DismissSession += instantDS_DismissSession;
    void instantDS_ResolveSession(object sender, ResolveSessionEventArgs e) {
        Session session = new Session();
        session.ConnectionString = @"Integrated Security=SSPI;Pooling=false;
            Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=MyDatabase";
        e.Session = session;
    void instantDS_DismissSession(object sender, ResolveSessionEventArgs e) {
        IDisposable session = e.Session as IDisposable;
        if(session != null) {
