  • Blog Post: New year, new article

    Well, I *think* yesterday was an official MSFT holiday (I wasn't here, anyway), so today was really the first day of the new year for new headlines and articles. So, we start the year with an article by someone named "Kent Sharkey". He's a (relatively) new author for MSDN, so I hope you give him some...
  • Blog Post: The InfoPath less travelled

    It seems like Darren & I had the same ideas over the last few days of 2004 -- learn/play with InfoPath. I have to say, I didn't really *get* InfoPath for a while (perhaps I still don't get it). However, I've now used it for 1.75 items, and so it's time to document my experience. First up was a Quick...
  • Blog Post: ASP.NET Member Management Component Prototype now available

    The Microsoft ASP.NET v1.1 Membership Management Component Prototype contains classes that allow a developer to more easily authenticate users, authorize users, and store per-user property data in a user profile. The authentication feature validates and stores user credentials which a developer can use...
  • Blog Post: YABRT: Yet Another Blog Ranking Tool

    While browsing my Bloglines subscriptions, I see that there is yet another tool available for monitoring the "importance" of blogs -- PubSub . From their site: LinkRanks are a measure of how many pages link to each particular site, with more weight given to fresher links and to links from a wider variety...
  • Blog Post: ClickOnce from the RDs

    Sorry, this actually went live on the 1st, but I'm a little behind. The latest article from the Microsoft Regional Directors (in this case Mauro Sant'Anna of Brazil) has been posted: Deploying Windows Forms Applications with ClickOnce
  • Blog Post: NOAA Way -- the Web Service

    Looking at my news items this morning, and what do I see? NOAA (the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency, aka, the Weather Guys) now has a Web Service available (sadly RPC/Encoded) to get the weather. Details here . WSDL here . Party on your desktop.
  • Blog Post: We have many questions...

    Scott Mitchell 's latest playpen is something I've been looking to find for a while -- a FAQ system built on ASP.NET. Multicategory, pumps out RSS feeds, what else could you want (besides a download) So far, it looks pretty r0xx0r (sorry, I've been spending too much time around l33t forums lately). Looking...
  • Blog Post: MSDN += new RssFeeds() ';

    Duncan has been working on our new RSS generation system . The new one he's created should be more flexible, accurate and up-to-date. He's looking for feedback on the new format as well. There are two changes we're really interested in feedback. First, he added category support. This is added in two...
  • Blog Post: Dino visits Bedrock...

    Dino brings you his latest -- an excellent article discussing using inheritance to add features to common ASP.NET classes, like the Page class. He shows how you can add page refresh, long process handing and more to *all* your pages in one fell swoop. TTFN - Kent
  • Blog Post: Hunting grounds

    In my ongoing attempt to fix my “work/life” balance [1], I decided to start playing City of Heroes [2]. Like many MMORPGs (non-RPG geeks: stay tuned, there will be a code reference later) there are 'hunting grounds' in CoH. Hunting grounds are places rich in relatively easy to acquire experience...
  • Blog Post: Forget Babelfish, now there's BabelCode!

    Neat link from the good folk @ Borland -- an experimental C# to Delphi Convertor , done as a Web Service (and ASP.NET page ). Had to try it, so I grabbed a little C# from the C# FAQ (I'm not on my dev box right now). End result: type Test = class strict private class procedure Main;static;...
  • Blog Post: Firefox & Netscape 7.1

    One of the support questions I got this week was around my favourite browser (and the latest Netscape one) and ASP.NET. ASP.NET 1.1 doesn't recognize Firefox by default. It therefore doesn't set the Browser[“css2“] property appropriately, meaning that sometimes stylesheet info isn't sent...
  • Blog Post: Don't you just love it when code works?

    Result of this afternoon was strangely satisfying: private void button2_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { RssClient c = new RssClient(); c.LoadOpmlFile(http://weblogs.asp.net/opml.aspx); this.textBox1.Text = c.GetRss(); } That took a little while (two songs or so), but it worked...
  • Blog Post: That's cool -- we need that

    It's Saturday night -- what do losers like Kent do? Poke around, trying to learn PHP. I just came across something that is probably old news -- PEAR (the PHP Extension and Application Repository). It's an application, a database, and more. 5 minutes after saving a web page to my machine, I now had a...
  • Blog Post: not Dr. Gui, but Dr. Ex

    Old news (he/she/it already has 4 posts), but if you have Visual Studio Extensibility questions, ask the Doctor ... TTFN - Kent
  • Blog Post: Come and get it!

    Sorry for the delay. The ASP.NET Resource Kit is NOW AVAILABLE. Details at http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/asprk/ . For those who downloaded it last week, don't bother, it hasn't changed. Spread the news far & wide! Let's see if you can break our Download servers! TTFN - Kent UPDATE: The...
  • Blog Post: More ASP.NET controls

    Scott Hanselman writes about some controls I have to take a look at by Peter Blum . http://www.hanselman.com/blog/PermaLink.aspx?guid=5291897b-8f7f-4289-b1d7-6ba6c381892b I trust Scott's opinion on this (actually, I'd trust his opinion on just about everything -- except possibly dessert ). Time...
  • Blog Post: Web Wizards, without the mess

    via William Bartholomew : Fritz Onion has posted an interesting article about how to write ASP.NET projects without using Web Projects and the associated bindings to IIS etc. http://staff.develop.com/onion/Samples/aspdotnet_without_web_projects.htm TTFN - Kent
  • Blog Post: Where'd it go? (was ASP.NET Resource Kit)

    A few people noticed an interesting download appear (and now disappear) from the MSDN downloads center. We crave your patience. It will return soon, we just need to get some pages up first. I'll let you know once it's back and available. In the meantime, please don't post it elsewhere. Thank you!...
  • Blog Post: What's new in ASP.NET Whidbey?

    Just sent up a new article from the fine Stephen Walther on some more of the new features in ASP.NET Whidbey. This one in particular blew my little mind: Rich XML Data Binding The ASP.NET ”Whidbey” data controls support a variety of rich data binding scenarios. By taking advantage of the...
  • Blog Post: C1PayPal control

    I was playing with ComponentOne 's Paypal ASP.NET control this night, and it's quite cool! It lets you easily add AddtoCart and Checkout functionality to a website. BTW - the control is part of the *free* [sorry, had to] Visual Basic Resource Kit , and even comes with C# samples for those who may...
  • Blog Post: User Agent strings

    A nice survey of many of the available User Agent strings that may hit your sites. (OK, 90% of them may be one of them, but please, please don't forget the others) http://www.zytrax.com/tech/web/browser_ids.htm TTFN - Kent
  • Blog Post: Gee with the VeeBee

    I was looking at some of the fine ASP.NET Hands-on Labs that will be waiting for people at some conference upcoming (and hopefully shortly thereafter on a dev center I've heard about). As I went through, this caught my eye: public class BusinessObject { public List < Employee > GetEmployeeList...
  • Blog Post: ASP to ASP.NET

    Not on MSDN yet (it's on the [great] other place ), but there is now an Alpha of an ASP to ASP.NET Migration Assistant: The ASP to ASP.NET Migration Assistant is designed to help you convert ASP pages and applications to ASP.NET. It does not make the conversion process completely automatic, but it...
  • Blog Post: RssView.ascx

    OK, Duncan has overly promoted a chunk of junk piece of code I wrote. So, I feel obliged to share, and embarrass myself again. Before I start, the requirements: The code was intended to run on the upcoming Longhorn Developer Center The idea was to have code that could run without dependencies...
