These are the slides from a Demo I gave on 3/14/2013 at UNC Charlotte on MVC.

MVC Music Demo (modified): http://sdrv.ms/152x3mO



Recently we upgraded one of our solutions from Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2010. After checking in our code to our 2008 Team Foundation Server, the CI build unexpectedly failed. We were getting errors like: c:\build\MyApplication\MyAp... error MSB4019: The imported project "C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\Vis... ......

For those who said they were praying for Amy, and little more detail is in order. Amy has a mild form of narcolepsy. Officially she is diagnosed as “Idiopathic Sleepiness”, however it amounts to the same thing. Ever since she was pregnant, she has not been able to take stimulants to help her stay awake. As a result, she is much more tired than usual, ......

Before working with MVC, I would claim to be somewhat intimidated by JavaScript development. Not that I did not know how to use it, however I found that is was much more bug prone and harder to develop against. Having the .Net compiler was a nice safety net-I did not have to worry about variable name mismatch, typos, not to mention the .Net framework ......

Sometimes it seems implementing functionality in ‘standard’ asp.net takes several times longer than with MVC. In my case, I wanted to do the following when changing a checkbox on a form page (page uses partial page update). Note that I needed to use both client side and server side functionality, and the page updates only part of the page. On checkbox ......

At a high level, this is how I understand the different MVC tiers: Model: Data libraries such as entities, Linq to SQL classes, or any other data library. View: The .aspx/.ascx pages. The classic ASP style code goes here. I have heard this layer referred to as a ‘report’ where you have as little logic as possible, and only that related to the display ......

Someone asked me the other day, between Standard ASP.Net and ASP.Net MVC, which do I prefer and why. Although I have long been an ASP.Net developer, I have to say that I easily would choose MVC over standard ASP.net any day (and twice on Sunday). I feel this for the following reasons: Separation of interests: The three sections of MVC are logically ......

I have often attempted to find TFS build properties that can be used in build scripts. This seems to be difficult to find via Google, so I am documenting this here. 1. Aaron Hallberg has an entry listing the Team Build 2008 properties. 2. MSDN lists a few TFS Build properties, a few of which are not listed in above. Customizable Team Foundation Build ......

One of the things I enjoy about a subscription to MSDN is access to all of the latest versions software. So when Installing Office 2007 some time ago, I installed OneNote as well. I did not get the point of this application at first, however I have found OneNote to be a useful tool for keeping track of my To Do items, as well creating a detailed list ......

Update: This can be accomplished with the MsBuild Extension Pack using the MsBuild.ExtensionPack.TFS.D... Team Build is great for building Projects applications such as Windows or Web apps. However it is not able to build Install packages. Because of this you have to use the Visual Studio build command line option, and copy the .msi and setup.exe ......

If you have ever used Beyond Compare from Scooter software, I don't have to tell you this is a great directory/file comparison tool, especially for the price (Single licenses are listed at $30). If you don't use this tool, I highly recommend you take the time to download a copy and kick the tires for the 30 day trial. As I recall with version 2, the ......

The other night at our local development group, the Charlotte based Enterprise Developers Guild, Brian Hitney from Microsoft gave and Overview of Microsoft ASP.NET MVC. This is my first time seeing the MVC pattern from Microsoft. This is the take away Items from this talk which may be helpful to those that are new to the MVC concept. Routing Before ......

Recently I needed to create a CustomValidator inside a GridView. In the end this was relatively straight forward, however I had some problems in my main application. As I could not find any examples of this on the Internet, I am documenting this here. As a proof of concept I created a web page with an UpdatePanel containing a ValidationSummary, a simple ......

One thing about the Visual Studio interface has often bothered me: There is not a very good way to bookmark code - by that I mean the "bookmark" feature does not work very well. Although I am able to set and clear bookmarks using the bookmarks toolbar in code, it does not highlight code in editor like Breakpoints do. For that reason, I usually use breakpoints ......

Recently I attempted to setup an editor to connect to GWB. Until this post I used MS Word 2007 to post to GWB, as I was unable to get Windows Live Writer to install. WLW consistently gave the following error when installing: There was a problem with this installation. Windows Live Suite was not installed. Code: 0x800070643. I tried a number of steps ......
