Cann't read the status from ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest

Hi. guys.


I download the ARB simple code on C# and modified it to fit my website.


The only problem is I cann't get the subscription status.  the program always return a "active" status even the subcription is canceled.


I guess the problem is cause by the code marked by red. 


I cann't use " string SubStatus = theResponse.Status;" as ARB simple code to get the status. theResponse only has status option, there isn't a "Status".


So I modify the code to" string SubStatus = theResponse.status.ToString();" and then, subStatus always show "active".



Please help me to figure out where is problem?


Here is my code.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using MySql.Data.MySqlClient;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Serialization;
using System.Net;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using AuthorizeNet;
using AuthorizeNet.Helpers;
using AuthorizeNet.APICore;

private static bool GetStatusSubscription()
        bool bResult = true;

        //Console.WriteLine("\r\nGet subscription status");

        // This is the API interface object
        ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest statusSubscriptionRequest = new ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest();

        // Populate the subscription request with test data

        // The response type will normally be ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest.
        // However, in the case of an error such as an XML parsing error, the response
        //   type will be ErrorResponse.

        object response = null;
        XmlDocument xmldoc = null;
        bResult = PostRequest(statusSubscriptionRequest, out xmldoc);

        if (bResult) bResult = ProcessXmlResponse(xmldoc, out response);

        if (bResult) ProcessResponse(response);
        ARBGetSubscriptionStatusResponse theResponse = (ARBGetSubscriptionStatusResponse)response;

        SubStatus = theResponse.status.ToString();

        if (!bResult)
            int x = 90;//Console.WriteLine("An unexpected error occurred processing this request.");

        return bResult;

Re: Can't read the status from ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest

I was having the same problem, but I was using PHP and not C#. What fixed my solution was that I was looking for the status as well, but "status" is case sensitive. Instead of "status" it should be "Status". That worked for me.

Re: Can't read the status from ARBGetSubscriptionStatusRequest



In C#, function "status" will come out automatic. I can't set to "Status" manually, it will generate a compile error.


ARBSubscriptionStatusEnum ST = theResponse.status;  it should be "theResponse.Status", but it isn't on the way.


I wonder it is a bug from" using AuthorizeNet.APICore".

Hey guys,


The SDK needs to be updated to look for "Status" not "status." I've sent this on to our developers. Thanks for the heads up!
