I have blogged about ASP.NET "Futures" and Dynamic Data Controls in my earlier post. You could create a Data Driven Website very quickly using the "Dynamic Data Website" template that shipped with the ASP.NET "Futures" July 2007 CTP. However, the ASP.NET Extensions 3.5 shipped in December 2007 bundles a bunch of Dynamic Data Controls that are more powerful and offer more extensibility than the ones shipped with the ASP.NET "Futures" July 2007 CTP. Let me clarify a few things here on the releases:- ...
Both the .NET 3.0 and .NET 3.5 are built on top of .NET 2.0. .NET 3.0 adds four frameworks namely Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Card Space to .NET 2.0 and Microsoft named the resulting framework as .NET 3.0 (a marketing tactic). Similarly .NET 3.5 adds Language Integrated Query (LINQ), Representational State Transfer (REST) and AJAX functionality to .NET 3.0 and named the resulting framework as .NET 3.5. I will ...
Few hours ago, Michael Schwarz, the creator of AJAX.NET Professional (A.KA. AJAXPro), the most successful AJAX framework for ASP.NET after Microsoft's ASP.NET AJAX Framework (A.K.A., ATLAS) has stated that he'll no longer be working on the project. Furthermore, he even recommended users to move to Microsoft's AJAX Framework instead!! The reasons Michael mentioned why he will stop the project used by 13.3% of ASP.NET developers doing AJAX work include the fact that ASP.NET AJAX is part of ASP.NET ...
This may be old news for some, but Firefox v2.0 does not support the display style "inline-block". I've read several blogs and articles on the subject, most of them suggesting using "-moz-inline-block" or "-moz-inline-stack" or "-moz-inline-box", none of which worked (and also managed to break IE support, subsequently). Since I tend to fix my own problems (and quickly forget the solution when it creeps up again), I usually post a blog about it to remind myself in the future. In the event this blog ...

I was trying to install a feature in MOSS 2007 which has got some Telerik controls (RadGrid, RadWindow, RadComboBox, RadUpload and RadAjax) in it. But after activating the feature which has some pages which use the SonOfSmartPart to host user controls which contain the Telerik controls, I got this error because of RadGrid: [Exception: The control must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.] Actually I got this error when I started working in MOSS, but I debugged it for some time, then I took ...
I did this from home early this morning (probably at the same time that I messed up Daniel Vaughan's name in my Silverlight Cream post). By the time I got everything fired up here, the blog post I used had rolled off my blog roll, but I found it again here from Tom Mertens. The implication is that you can get all 3 eBooks, but what I actually got was selected chapters of the ASP.NET Ajax book and the Silverlight book, but was able to download the LINQ book complete, and I figure that's great! If ...

2008 is going to be a bumper year for a number of reasons not least the launch of Longhorn - sorry Server 2008!

With .Net 3.5 now live and BizTalk in its 2006 R2 version coupled with MOSS 2007, AJAX and Silverlight things look great...

So lets hope all our hopes are realised!

I must admit that ASP.NET is a bit outside my realm; I did Win32 and Mobile development in C# .NET for nearly 4 years before taking a position as a Web App Developer. Therefore, I am more code-minded than web-minded, if that makes sense. I have the programming ability to do a lot of things, but making things aesthetically pleasing is where I lack most. Luckily, for me and my company, we have web designers who get paid to make things look pretty. In light of this, I’ve basically abandoned my quest ...

ASP.NET AJAX Original Roadmap When Microsoft released ASP.NET AJAX Extensions (formerly codename ATLAS), their roadmap for the core extensions was to release ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 for ASP.NET 2.0 (AKA, .NET Framework 2.0) as separate installation, and have that to integrate greatly with Visual Studio 2005, and then integrate that with ASP.NET 3.5 to be part of it, enabling you to have the same experience (better experience actually) with Visual Studio 2008. Of course that's all while having the "futures" ...

The much-talked about MVC Framework that Microsoft is working on was released last week as part of the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions. It also has some other pretty cool stuff, including Dynamic Data controls, Ajax history support, ADO.NET Data Services, updated support for Silverlight and the ADO.NET Entity Framework. Once you download it, here are some great resources to check out: Scott Guthrie's 4 part tutorial on building an MVC based application Phil Haack (the PM for the MVC Framework) Rob Conery ...
I have this book, and it's the one that kicked me past the point of wanting to use AJAX and actually doing so... good stuff, a good read, and on-topic. I haven't read it all. I took potshots where I looked for information to get the job done, and even reading that way, it worked! So go over to Encosia, and follow the instructions to try to win one of the 3 copies Dave is giving away. The 'first comment' is undoubtedly gone by now, but there's two others up for grabs... trust me, you won't be disappointed ...
Today is the primary day of Muslim's ADHA (Sacrifice) feast. I'm enjoying it with family activities in my grandmother's house and few hours later my uncle's house. Thanks God both have wireless Internet connectivity. This how I could still check my Google Reader items (see shared items), while showing my profile pictures to my uncle's little daughter and other kids from the family! Then I noticed that the feast has a great gift, coming from Microsoft this time. I found that Microsoft has opened 3 ...

Validating user input is a very common task that we perform during web page development, and in the ASP.NET world we have a handful amount of choices to perform validation. ASP.NET Validation Controls ASP.NET ships with a handful amount ASP.NET Validation controls such as RequiredFieldValidator, CompareValidator, RangeValidator, RegularExpressionValidator, CustomValidator and ValidationSummary. These controls are very easy to hook up with other ASP.NET controls, and if properly configured they check ...

With the recent announcement of WSS/MOSS SP1 and AJAX support, I decided to relook at the Visual Studio 2008 integration again. Sure enough I was surprised to find that Jan Tielens has been working on making it easy once again to develop web parts using templates. Smart Templates has been put up on CodePlex in order to create more SharePoint project types than are currently available. This includes only Web Parts at the current time. The web part template allows you to do the following: Create web ...
So, I came across a requirement where the users do not want to wade through a potential 100's of items in a combobox, but are stuck on using a combo box. Our team has already built a generic server control which inherits from TableRow allowing us to add various controls as TableRows within an ASP:Table. Essentially we get something like this: <ASP:Table ID="Table1" runat="server"> <Chadster:DropDownListFi... ID="DropDownListField" Title="Pick an Item" Description="Please Choose an ...

Technorati Tags: video,help,learning,AJAX So I'm trying to learn the new AJAX stuff in .net 3.5. I've done quite a bit of web development, but the AJAX toolkit kinda skipped me. So I browse out to the getting started section of ASP.NET, hoping to find some documentation with examples on how to use this stuff, and all I find are stupid videos! I hate this trend, and it seems to be increasing. I read very quickly, and can skim documents to find what it is that I want. Skimming a video is next to impossible--you ...
Instead of trying to come up with my own text (yes, I'm that lazy sometimes!) I'll just "borrow" the text about this event from Chris Love's blog. Before I do though I'll add that I too will be presenting at this event. I haven't decided exactly what yet but I know it'll be VB 2008 centric. Ok, here's the text from Chris's blog post: "Next week, December 12th, the Triangle .NET User Group will be holding an Installfest for Visual Studio 2008. Each Registered attendee, and I stressed registered attendee, ...
Still working on some Spec# posts right now, but in the mean time, here's something I meant to send out a while ago. Throughout my career, many people have asked which tools I take from project to project. There have been plenty of tools that seemed cool, worked for a little bit then I moved onto something else. Being in the ALT.NET mindset, I have a wide array of tools that I will bring whether they be from Microsoft or the developer community as a whole. I'll categorize each set of tools per type. ...
For those of you who read the previous post you will have noticed some of my questions were answered by helpful commenters. The first thing that was mentioned is that you can install as many of the express versions as you wish. What you really give up here is the ability to have just one Visual Studio environment that looks the same for all of your projects. For the moment I can live with that. So I installed the Web Edition and found a couple of surprising items. The toolbox actually included AJAX ...
Well, I blogged about Visual Studio 2008 and have just started a series on Whats new in Visual Studio 2008 for Web Developers. However, I also wanted to write on ASP.NET 3.5 which is released along with .NET 3.5. ASP.NET 3.5 has the following key features Built-in ASP.NET AJAX - System.Web.Extensions has the version 3.5.0.0 and yes it can happily co-exist with ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 with System.Web.Exntesions version 1.0.61025.0 which works well with ASP.NET 2.0 List View Server Control a Databound control ...

The recent release of Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Fx 3.5 is causing some confusion. Microsoft released these two technologies together for good reason. The wonderful new LinQ technologies introduced in .Net 3.5 rely on explicit compiler-level support, and therefore require LinQ aware compilers in Visual Studio. The new version of visual Studio provides these compilers, allowing developers to take advantage of the new monadic syntax. In addition, Visual Studio has several new features designed to ...
Now that Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 have officially shipped, it's time to start looking at the additional products and tools that build on top of that foundation. Scott Guthrie has an excellent post that details the roadmap for the Web related products. The biggest announcement is that the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions will have it's first public preview available sometime next week. If you don't know what the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions are, here is the list (taken from Scott's post): ASP.NET MVC: This ...

I recently was working on a project in .NET 1.1 and needed an Ajax solution and .NET 2.0 or beyond was out of the question due to hardware and environment constraints. I found a solution I wanted to share. Maybe you have found a better one out there, but I was quite pleased with what I found. I found http://www.ajaxpro.info/. It was written by Michael Schwarz in Germany. I don't know the fellow and haven't tried to contact him, but he wrote a heck of a solution. I really enjoy the flexibility. One ...
Yeah, finally the long awaited preview of ASP.NET MVC Framework will be available, Yeah, I'm tired like you all of seeing so many sample codes without a way to touch them or try other things out. Also Silverlight 1.1 will keep on evolving and now has the versionning it deserves, Silverlight 2.0, which is not just a name of course, but comes with broader support of WPF and rich controls and many other features. These are only few of many super interesting announcements that Scott Guthrie [MSFT] posted ...

Last month, Scott Guthrie announced the ASP.NET MVC framework which allows for built-in support for the Model View Controller based architecture. Since that time there has been a flurry of activity from Microsoft to demo the technology to the world and make demos readily available. In case you missed it, here are some of the features: Clean separation of concerns. All core contracts of the MVC framework are testable and mockable Highly pluggable to use NHibernate, Spring.NET, Windsor, and other great ...
I've just finished reading asp.net Ajax in action by Alessandro Gallo, David Barkol and Rama Krishna Vavilala. ISBN-10: 1933988142 My philosophy about javascript can be summed up in one word "yuk!" I keep hoping that the need to learn javascript will pass as the tools catch up and extend the .net dev environment to the browser client. This is happening with much better tools for debugging and deploying javascript in vs 2008. Still i'm a curious person and am embarrased to admit how little javascript ...
Spent the weekend so far using the new release of Visual Studio 2008 and ASP.NET AJAX. More specifically, I have been using the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit. Adding the new controls to your VS2008 toolbox is a straight-forward process, but when I added them - at first everything was fine - but after a few hours they seemed to magically disappear. Trying to add them again didn't seem to do anything at all as nothing changed. Right-clicking on the VS2008 toolbox and selecting Show All actually did ...
