FTP Publishing with the new Windows Azure Release
There is a good chance you might have stumbled upon the new Windows Azure Release that we made on June 6th. Scott Guthrie’s Post quite summarizes the overall new features. One of my favorite features is the Windows Azure Websites and the ability to do publish files to Azure using your FTP Client. Windows Azure Websites offers low cost (free upto 10 websites) web hosting where you can deploy any website that can run on IIS 7.0, quickly. The earlier releases of Azure SDKs and the Azure platform support ......

ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender, AutoCompleteExtender and UpdatePanel – mashing it up all
(this is a repost since the initial post had a few issues that couldn’t be corrected) I am playing with the ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender released as a part of the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1. It provides endless opportunities for working with data without writing much code and when you combine it with a few Ajax features, gives a truly great user experience with very less effort. To begin with you need the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1. You can install both from ......

ASP.NET MVC 4 Developer Preview announced at BUILD
Yesterday I wrote this post but forgot to mention about something that is very close to my heart ASP.NET MVC. ASP.NET MVC has been evolving rapidly and within 2 years, we already have had 4 major releases (MVC 1, MVC 2, MVC 3 & MVC 3 Reloaded ) So, it doesn’t go as a surprise that MVC 4 is on the cards and the developer preview was unveiled at BUILD Conference. What does MVC 4 offer for web developers? Enhanced Default Project Template If you are bored with the vanilla blue template that comes ......

Using HTML5 Local Storage in ASP.NET Applications
I recently delivered a Zeollar session on Using HTML5 Local Storage in ASP.NET Applications Following it up with a blog post on the contents, since a few mentioned that the code was not better aligned/readable. Local Storage and Offline Web Applications are 2 promising features of HTML5 going around the web apart from the (already tired of?) Videos. Local Storage (persistent storage) is not entirely new since we had cookies ever since sliced bread (or seems to be so). But, the limitation of 4KB on ......

AJAX Control Toolkit, NuGet Package Manager Console and the new HTMLEditorExtender Control
Its been a while since I played with Web forms, AJAX stuff. I was curious in checking out, particularly how the AJAX Control Toolkit which used to be my favorite in the past is evolving. There is a new release of AJAX Control Toolkit, just hot off the oven. You can download the binaries from http://ajaxcontroltoolkit.c... Now, while the regular way we have downloaded and used AJAX Control Toolkit is by visiting the above codeplex page and download the latest version, there is also a newer ......

Using the ASP.NET Membership API with SQL Server / SQL Azure: The new “System.Web.Providers” namespace
The Membership API came in .NET 2.0 and was a huge enhancement in building web applications with users, managing roles, permissions etc., The Membership API by default uses SQL Express and until Visual Studio 2008, it was available only through the ASP.NET Configuration manager screen (Website – ASP.NET Configuration) or (Project – ASP.NET Configuration) and for every application, one has to manually visit this place to start using the Security and other settings. Upon doing that the default SQL ......

Cascading Dropdownlist in ASP.NET MVC 3 using jQuery
MVC 3 is becoming hugely popular thanks to Razor and the Helpers that make building web applications much easier. One of the common requirements in web development, both with web forms as well as MVC based development, is the cascading dropdownlist. Now, for Web Forms, we can use a variety of options viz. server side programming, jQuery or using the AJAX Control Toolkit’s cascading dropdownlist control for accomplishing this. I saw a few samples on the internet that used the erstwhile Microsoft AJAX ......

Web Role Instances recreated, repaired while deploying MVC 3 Applications on Windows Azure
Recently, I was deploying an MVC 3 Application on Windows Azure. The deployment took longer than expected and the Roles were just restarting/repairing and it couldn’t just start the role instances. Only thing that seemed to have worked was uploading the Packages. Post that, the Roles were simply unable to start and be ready. I deleted the deployment, re-created the package and deployed. Still no avail. It would successfully upload the package but post that the roles would never be able to start. ......
