CodeSeeker Just another developer trying to do the right thing
The requirement is to show a Find dialog to the user along with a Find button so that the user must perform a search for a record before they are allowed to enter a new one. Once the user clicks the Find button, an "Add New" button is made visible. Upon clicking the "Add New" button, the Find dialog is hidden altogether and an Add dialog is displayed. ......

I am currently working on a web application where the user steps (forward or back) through a series of pages with "Next" and "Previous" buttons, entering data until they reach a page with the "Finish" button. Until finished, all data is stored in Session state, then sent to the mainframe database via web services at the end of the process. Some of the ......

When exporting a Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008 report in Excel, HTML, or PDF/RTF/Word format, you can specify formatting options for the export using an ExcelFormatOptions, HTMLFormatOptions, or PdfRtfWordFormatOptions object, respectively. Each FormatOptions object has 3 properties that can be set: UsePageRange, FirstPageNumber, and ......

The DropDownList control's SelectedIndexChanged event relies not only on the selected Index changing, but also on the Value of the new item being different than the previously-selected one. The bottom line is that all Values in a DropDownList should be unique if you are using its SelectedIndexChanged event.



Right off the bat I'll tell you I am a beginner when it comes to CodeSmith. Basically, the tech lead set up the templates and I know how to run them and that's about it. That being said, we figured out how to get around some strange behavior with CodeSmith today that I thought I'd write a brief note about. I was going through a legacy project to convert ......

I have been using Agent Ransack for a few years and find it to be a really useful tool for not only finding files quickly but seeing the line in the file that contains the text you were searching for in the first place (assuming you're searching for files based on text contained in those files). Agent Ransack added itself to the folder context menu ......

If you just need a quick and dirty DropDownList of, let's say, Month values, you can simply build an ArrayList to populate it with, then bind the DropDownList to the ArrayList. This is simple and examples are easy to find on the 'net, but here's the trick: when creating ListItems for your ArrayList, give the ListItems both a Text and Value. Then set ......

I recently wrote an internal memo identifying accessibility problems with Telerik RadWindows for the website I'm currently working on. I post the items here hoping that they might be useful for some of you out there. Some of this is specific to our environment (IE6) and design standards but may be helpful for you too. Some apply to other modal window ......

When using TFS within Visual Studio, if you undo pending changes on an ASPX file by right-clicking on that file in Solution Explorer and selecting "Undo Pending Changes", pay close attention to the dialog box about what files are going to have their changes undone. TFS will not only undo changes on the ASPX file you selected, but will also undo changes ......

In the last couple of shops I've worked that actually have documentation, what I have tried to accomplish with the developer documentation for the code was to be able to reproduce the code from the documentation. The documentation should give an overview of the page, contain all of the requirements and business rules in the Analyst documentation, and ......
