For those using Telerik’s RadScheduler control, I explained about the options that the scheduler uses to recur by:  http://dotnetslackers.com/articles/aspnet/Understanding-Teleriks-Scheduler-Recurrence.aspx  I don’t know if the latest release has changed some of these settings, but this article was up to date as of the previous 2008.3 release.  The scheduler uses a unique convention to identify recurring appointments […]

I’ll probably come back and update this post, but I wanted to post some excellent addons or tools that can be used with Firefox/Firebug, available here: 10 Firefox Add-Ons for Web Designers: http://www.10voltmedia.com/blog/2009/05/10-firefox-add-ons-for-web-designers/ 10 Firefox Extensions for Web Analytics: http://www.thomsonchemmanoor.com/10-firefox-extensions-for-web-analytics.html FireAtlas, an ASP.NET AJAX utility: http://fireatlas.chesnaistechnologies.com/

I needed to be able to compress my JavaScript files, and I like to use the YUI compressor to do this.  Found an even easier way to do this using Visual Studio, by creating an external tool as mentioned in this blog:  http://blog.lavablast.com/post/2009/05/YUI-Compressor-for-Visual-Studio.aspx Also, there is an option for an MS build task: http://www.coderjournal.com/2008/05/how-to-create-a-yui-compressor-msbuild-task/ Really […]

I found something out with the RadNumericTextBox control: for the GroupSeparator, it will accept an empty string, but not for the DecimalSeparator property.  This is important, as the RadNumericTextBox behaves in a certain way.  If you try to set: <tel:RadNumericTextBox ..>    <NumberFormat DecimalDigits=”0″ DecimalSeparator=”” /></tel:RadNumericTextBox> An exception is thrown for this, but <tel:RadNumericTextBox ..>    <NumberFormat […]

There are quite a bit of books on the market about ASP.NET and AJAX.  The book “Professional ASP.NET AJAX” from Wrox is a good overview of the AJAX framework.  The authors of the book cover a wide array of subjects that you don’t find in every AJAX book.  The book covers topics like localization and […]

SlickEdit has a nice backup tool that captures backups of files on a regular basis.  Whenever you need to restore a backup of a file, simply go to the backup explorer tool window (on the same side as the solution explorer) and select one of the backups to compare your file against its.  This editor […]

Attached to this blog post is an image of the product Resharper, a refactoring tool for the .NET 3.5 framework and Visual Studio 2008 (not including the backward compatibility).  The image labels three sections that illustrate some of the highlighting.  The first section I’ll discuss is the “Field Highlighting” section.  Notice the green squigglies underneath […]

The point of this article is not to point out how hard it is to use JQuery or anything like that; rather, JQuery is very easy and efficient to use.  However, as with any third-party JS library (I happen to be using JQuery at the moment), using this library with third-party .NET controls is difficult.  […]

The goal of the book “Practical JavaScript, DOM Scripting, and AJAX projects” illustrates what it takes to create an application solely in JavaScript.  This book discusses projects in different genres: using mashups to pull external data, creating a calculator, creating and playing a game, creating widgets, setting up a custom validation scheme, setting up a […]
