SQL Developer Don’ts
I have been assigned in my copious free time to create best practices guides for the developers here. I decided to start with SQL because I have recently been looking at the other developers code and seen some really ugly things. I attended Doug Seven's session at Tech 2004 on this issue so I already have that information. I am looking to have something more robust. These guides will most likely turn into policies and procedures here. So if you have anything that can help let me know. Thanks ......

Visual Studio 2005 Windows Forms Controls
So I found ToolStrip Control Overview on MSDN under Controls You Can Use on Windows Forms . The only problem that I have found is that if you have two different toolstrips, if you try to put the second one in front of the first one it will not let you. Anyone else having this problem? I have also found overviews and classes for: WebBrowser Control which is a managed wrapper for the WebBrowser ActiveX control (about time) DataGridView Control which is a datagrid but more powerful SplitContainer Control ......
