Check out the latest news on the VB Dev Center. I'm finally headlining myself ;-)
I'm in the October issue of MSDN Magazine. I've been managing the content for the Basic Instincts column for a little over a year now where we rotate writers from the VB Team. This month is my birthday month so I decided to take this one on personally. :-)
PingBack from http://www.easycoded.com/msdn-magazine-dynamic-data-entry-with-xml-literals/
Since I don't know what day your birthday is, I'm going to send you birthday wishes everyday till the end of the month :-P just kidding!!!
Although, because I don't know what day your birthday is, I WILL say happy birthday now and I hope you have a good one and many more to come.
Oh yeah, and congrats of the article, can't wait to read it
Happy Birthday Beth and thank you for being so dedicated...your tutorials really helped me in my development process with MS stuff...
thanks a zillion :-)
Happy Birthday Beth!
I watched your How-do-I videos series on reportviewer. I like it very much but am missing something.
I have a parent children relationship Table where the parent table has a look up table and the children table also has a look up, I created a dataset with a datatable with the look up tables when i drag the parent field to the report it will show but the parent look up fields and the children are not visible on the report when i run it.
Please Help! am lost.
Note: When i create the dataset without the look up table everything is alright.
Thanks in Advance
Lookman, does the database table to which the dataset it linked contain any data?
Didn't understand much of what was going on in the magazine article, but I found it incredibly interesting nonetheless. Well done.
I bet when I get to that level when I do know what you're doing, I'll have no problems doing it thanks to you.
Thanks, I figured it out. the report datasource was set to the wrong bindingsource by VS.
I am watching you wpf videos series now, its cool.
Thanks everyone! My B-Day is on the 20th :-)
Great article. It was one of the first ones I read when I got my copy. I do have a quick (I hope) question. I was wondering if there was a way to implement this feature without XML Literals, specifically, loading the XML from, say a database. The case I'm thinking of is in customizable applications, where all of the elements are in the database, and I could pick and pull the needed elements based on the screen configuration. Or is something like that not really feasable?
I haven't tried it but you should be able to load the XAML from a database. The same rules should apply. The XAML is compiled when the XAMLReader loads the XAML so you can't refer to the code-behind (i.e. you can't handle events in the XAML that require code) but rendering UI should work fine.
