As of today, the official release of Lightswitch is now available. Visit: http://www.microsoft.com/vi... or you can download from your MSDN subscription. What is Lightswitch? It is basically a simple to use application generator that can be used to build applications within minutes in many cases. If you have an existing, well structured (primary keys, relationships) SQL Server database you are just a few clicks away from an administration tool and well on the way to a full ......

Ok, honestly, I’m posting this so I can find it when I need it but Visual Studio 2010 uses a new report viewer that is compatible with .net 4.0. http://www.microsoft.com/do... Bill McCarthy has some complaints (and a work around): http://msmvps.com/blogs/bil... ......

This week Scott Cate came to South Florida and gave a great talk on his Visual Studio shortcuts and how he uses them. You can find a collection of short video’s he has done at: http://scottcate.com/tricks/ Also you might want to check out Sara Ford’s blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/saraf... she started doing a tip a day but has many more now. Scott covers many of these in the videos. And.. as with past releases, the languages team has provided PDF’s with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, this ......

I just got done reading "Effective REST Services via .NET" by Kenn Scribner and Scott Seely. ISBN-13: 978-0-321-6125-7 I've been hearing a lot about restful services and have absorbed the basics by osmosis but always like to read a book to cement the ideas more clearly. This book does a good job of that but goes a few steps further. A few things I particularly liked were: - Review of http and how the internet works, things I don't pay much attention to any more! - While presenting "pure" restful ......

Long past due is a review of Julie’s book, Programming Entity Framework, ISBN 978-0-596-52028-1 Julie adopted Entity Framework early on, from before it was even available to most MVP’s. This book is a reflection of that involvement with the product and the product teams over the past few years. This 23 chapter, 750+ page book covers a lot of ground and provides a great reference book for almost everything entity framework related. The first few chapters introduce the framework and will give you a ......

We had the first online version of the Ft Lauderdale developer group meeting tonight. Eighteen people were online but i was the only one with a web camera… I hope more start getting the video cranked up! The topic was Introduction to MVC and was suppose to be given by Jim Zimmerman out of Tampa but he called at 5:30 (for the 6:30 meeting) reporting that his laptop power brick was toast and he was out of juice. He had tried to get another one but at this point he was dead in the water because his ......

This is going to be one of my favorite features of Visual Studio! I've been working with the new "Database Projects" and have been very impressed. You can import a schema and it will script all aspects of the database so it can be used to compare against. More importanttly it can be checked into source safe (or other source control system) as it is just a bunch of SQL scripts. There are menu items for "Schema Compare" and "Data Compare" which is what I will use the most. It is very quick and easy ......

I have used this technique before... use the item template for the edit controls and scrape the values by looping through the rows using events other than edit command. But I got lost for a bit, this article helped me get back on track: http://www.dotnetjohn.com/a... I'm using a gridview control and calling my "ReverseBind" from both page changes and also when the user clicks on a button that takes the final results and transfers the data to other places in the database. I loop ......
