Using SqlDependency without providing an options value Error

Using SqlDependency without providing an options value Error.
When using SqlDependency without providing an options value, SqlDependency.Start() must be called prior to execution of a command added to the SqlDependency instance.
Using SqlDependency without providing an options value Exception.

SqlDependency is awesome.  It truly is.  Problem is it has a lot of unexpected behaviors to an SqlDependency noob. 

I got this error: "When using SqlDependency without providing an options value, SqlDependency.Start() must be called prior to execution of a command added to the SqlDependency instance" couple of hours ago and I decided to share.

This error occurs if you didn't started your SqlDependency or it got closed for some reason.  I usually start it this way in the Global.asax:
 protected void Application_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e)
   var sConn = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
   // Cache systemwide data in the application object.

You must pay attention to errors though.  Since it might fall while running, always have a check on the exception type at the Application_Error, so you'll know to restart the SqlDependency in case it stops.

Hope it helped,

    and with the priority focused firmly on income instead of on

    since the pay day loan lender isn't connected with any form of credit assessment that's
    one number a borrower won't have to concern yourself with.

  3. The only thing you have to do is to utilize this laser leveler tool which will project a visible laser-cross on the walls by
    simultaneously, displaying accurate horizontal and vertical lines within seconds.

    In case fire or explosion does occur, immediately smother the fire with
    a thick blanket or non-flammable material to remove oxygen since
    fire cannot be sustained in the absence of this element. Reaching
    the perfect horizontal or vertical line is not that easy with the traditional accessories such as bubble leveler.
