  • Blog Post: Debugging JavaScript with the IE Developer Tools

    An interesting question was posted on one of the distribution lists today. “The client wanted to look into this MSDN drag and drop typed left navigation bar to work on Sharepoint 2010, does anyone make this work or have idea about this?” Click the control that is circled, and the menu is expanded or...
  • Blog Post: Enable JavaScript Intellisense for SharePoint Development

    One of my favorite new additions to SharePoint 2010 is the client side object model . You can easily reference it using an assembly for Silverlight or managed code development, which means you get all the Intellisense goodness. However, there is no Intellisense displayed for client side object model...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint as a Composite Application Platform

    I had the pleasure of speaking at the SharePoint TechFest 2010 event today in Dallas, Texas.  Over 650 people at this event, holy smokes it was a great time.  I had the first time slot of the day, and when I first started the talk the room wasn’t even 1/4 full (maybe about 30 people). ...

  • Blog Post: Getting XML Data From a SharePoint List – The Easy Way

    Steve Pietrek has a great link blog ( Steve Pietrek - Everything SharePoint and Office ) that aggregates blog postings on SharePoint and Office.  If you are at all interested in seeing what’s possible with SharePoint, I highly recommend you subscribe to this great resource.  In his April 30th...
  • Blog Post: Consuming SharePoint Lists via AJAX

    I’ve done a bit of work with customers interested in consuming SharePoint data without using the SharePoint web services.  A common request asks how to consume the data from JavaScript. Turns out the answer is easy when you develop a custom feature. I created a companion screencast on Channel9 that...
  • Blog Post: Virtual Earth Now Supports Pin Clustering

    Very cool... Virtual Earth now supports pin clustering . You can see a sample that shows pin clustering . You can control clustering with a VEClusteringOptions class, which contains properties for the Icon and callback method. This is a lot easier that the kludge code that I wrote for a customer awhile...
  • Blog Post: Windows Server 2008 - The only web server you'll ever need.

    I just learned about a new site that we have put together, Microsoft.com/web .  This is a very cool site that lists a bunch of great information about why to use Windows Server as your web server.  It's a great collection of resources that point to events, downloads, and further information...
  • Blog Post: Using ASP.NET Dynamic Data with the Windows Workflow Foundation Rules Engine

    In this post, I will show how to use the Windows Workflow Foundation rules engine to provide business logic for a Dynamic Data Entites Web Application. We will show how to change business rules without modifying code, drive the application based on a logical entity model, and map the entity model to...
  • Blog Post: Made My Blog Go Live

    I was surfing around awhile today, and came across David Chou's blog . He has some widgets on his blog that I thought were interesting, including a Live Messenger window that lets you ping him if he's online. That caught my attention, but what I thought was even cooler was a drop-down list that allows...
  • Blog Post: The Impact of Enterprise 2.0 on the Enterprise

    When I think of the impact of Enterprise 2.0 in the next 5 years, I can't help but imagine there's a war brewing. Web 2.0 was the big love fest, can't we all just share data and get along with standards? Enterprise 2.0, by contrast, doesn't share that same vision. Today's view is, "Can't we all just...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft and Web 2.0 Resources

    Thanks to the folks at Lexis Nexis who attended my talk on "Microsoft and Web 2.0" today.  I went through quite a bit of material around Windows Live, the Live Platform, Silverlight, and newer technologies like DeepZoom, PhotoSynth, Live Mesh, SQL Server Data Services, and BizTalk Services...
  • Blog Post: Thanks to Lexis Nexis!

    We are about to start a great day showing technologies like .NET 3.5, Visual Studio 2008, and SharePoint technologies. I thought I'd be proactive and post the materials beforehand. Make sure to check out Rob Cameron's blog for additional information. Just about everything shown today came from the VS2008...
  • Blog Post: What You Need To Know: WCF, WCF, ADO.NET SyncServices, and ClickOnce

    I had a great time visiting with a great team at Verizon this week. I was able to present on a number of technologies, including ADO.NET Sync Services, WCF, WF, and ClickOnce. I was going to send this in an email, then I realized that there are some great bits in here that would appeal to a broader audience...
  • Blog Post: Using the Virtual Earth Control in SharePoint

    I have been using the Virtual Earth control a lot lately for various demos, mostly by putting customized maps into SharePoint Content Editor web part. It's a cool effect, and can be an incredibly useful tool for your company's intranet. For instance, I am planning an event at Qwest in Denver, Colorado...
  • Blog Post: Calling Web Services via AJAX - Part 2

    Looks like this is an interesting topic to a lot of people since part 1 of this series made it to the front page of Digg today. Good thing that I was already working on part 2 :) In Calling Web Services via AJAX - Part 1 , I highlighted how easy it is to use client-side script to call an ASP.NET web...
  • Blog Post: Calling WebServices via AJAX Part 1

    Several months ago, one of my customers asked me a fairly pointed question: how do you call web services from JavaScript? At least, that's what they asked me, but not really what they meant (I'll explain what their real question was in a subsequent post). Consuming Server-Side Data Using JavaScript...
  • Blog Post: Digital Asset Management and IMM

    My wife says I have the humor of a 13-year old at times. Maybe she's right. I was able to interview Mark Kashman, Product Manager for Interactive Media Manager, on IMM as a Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution . I can't help but picture Beavis and Butthead, "Huh huh huh... he said DAM." Jokes aside...
  • Blog Post: JavaScript Intellisense for Virtual Earth

    One of my favorite things about Visual Studio 2008 is the JavaScript support, getting debugging and Intellisense support in the IDE. Scott Guthrie wrote an excellent blog post highlighting the JavaScript Intellisense support in VS2008 . One of the first things I thought when I saw this was, "wouldn't...
  • Blog Post: Creating a Silverlight Carousel and Gel Buttons Through Live Search

    One of my coworkers, Rob Wilson, did a fantastic interview with me that will be appearing on our new Channel9 show, "Communicating" , as soon as I can get it edited, encoded, and uploaded. In exchange, he asked for some Silverlight help. I learned a few hard lessons along the way and thought I would...
  • Blog Post: Using Silverlight and AOL's Video Search

    I had the pleasure of writing a series of articles for The AOL Developer Network, dev.aol.com . The first two articles of the series are now posted. Part 1 walks through some basics of using JavaScript with Silverlight and using the AJAX API for Truveo video search. This is a great way to start from...
  • Blog Post: Architecture Webcast Series - Architecting the Customer Experience With WCF and Silverlight

    Thought I would let everyone know about a webcast that I am putting on this Wednesday! I am going to show off Silverlight and WCF together, showing how to use things like JSON encoding from services and using that within a Silverlight 1.0 application. Architecting the Customer Experience With WCF...
  • Blog Post: Highlighting Activities in the AJAX Workflow Monitor Example

    In my last post, I showed how you can use Jon Flanders's AJAX Workflow Monitor example with Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 . After I got it working, I was so giddy that I kept on tinkering for most of the day. If you have seen the DinnerNow scenario , you have probably seen the WF designer control hosted...
  • Blog Post: Using the AJAX Workflow Monitor With .NET 3.5 Beta 2

    Awhile back, Jon Flanders posted an excellent example of creating an AJAX enabled Workflow Monitor using ASP.NET AJAX 1.0. What's really cool is that you can very easily upgrade this sample to use with .NET 3.5 Beta 2 and use it without downloading the ASP.NET AJAX libraries since all of the ASP.NET...
  • Blog Post: Using SyndicationFeed to Access a Secure Feed

    Prasad asks how to use the SyndicationFeed type in .NET 3.5 to access a secure feed . I have to say, it depends on what you mean by "secure feed." RSS and Atom are typically delivered through HTTP GET with text/xml as the content-type. I have to assume that you are securing that HTTP GET endpoint...
