Gold Coast

Over the years, this blog has been about many different things related to software development with Microsoft technologies. Since my current role focuses on Dynamics CRM / XRM, that's what it's primarily about right now.

  • Blog Post: Referencing JavaScript files from a CDN in a CRM 2011 form

    UPDATE: I’ve changed the approach in this post because the original code has some side effects where it doesn’t always load correctly, plus I discovered RequireJS . I’m a big fan of referencing JavaScript files from a Content Delivery Network (CDN) when it makes sense.  Why?  I think the Microsoft...

  • Blog Post: OQuery – A fluent API to build OData url queries sans LINQ

  • Blog Post: Does jQuery ship with SharePoint 2010? (and why you should be using an Ajax CDN)

    jQuery is one of the most popular javascript libraries used by ASP.NET developers.  In fact, jQuery ships with Visual Studio 2010.  It is in the “Scripts” folder of a new “ASP.NET Web Application” or “ASP.NET MVC 2 Web Application” project template. Does jQuery ship with SharePoint 2010? ...
  • Blog Post: SCREENCAST: Managing Browser History Using Client Script Without ScriptManager

    ASP.NET Ajax has a great feature that helps make it easy to enable back/forward button and bookmarking support in your Ajax applications.  However, most people think you need ASP.NET WebForms and the ScriptManager control to take advantage of this feature.  Furthermore, most people think you...
  • Blog Post: Love jQuery = Love ASP.NET Ajax Library

    I’ve been covering ASP.NET AJAX and what used to be called the “Microsoft Ajax Library” ever since the first “Atlas” code drops.  ASP.NET AJAX has always offered Web Forms developers a relatively simple way of Ajax enabling their applications without forcing them to change how they write them through...

  • Blog Post: jQuery & MicrosoftAjax “happy together”

    I’ve been using jQuery quite a bit lately.  I’ve grown very fond of it.  At the same time, I have been digging into ASP.NET AJAX 4.0.  I just read a post from Bertand Le Roy that made me smile.  In his post, he shows how you can do the following: < ul class ="dv" >...

  • Blog Post: Building Virtual Earth applications just keeps getting easier

    I've given a number of presentations on Virtual Earth development over the last couple years.  The first thing ASP.NET WebForms developers say to me is how bummed they are that they have to write JavaScript.  That's understandable.  ASP.NET WebForms developers have come to expect server...
