Filed under: ASP.NET,C#,VB.NET @ 11:34 am

I just wanted to set focus to a TextBox on a modal dialog created using the ModalPopupExtender. How hard can it be?

ASP.NET: Gradients

Filed under: ASP.NET,C#,VB.NET @ 12:47 pm

My first Xaml/Silverlight post was on gradients, it seems only right that my first ASP.NET post should cover the same topic.

Filed under: C#,Silverlight,VB.NET @ 8:08 pm

When last we saw our Silverlight ComboBox in this prior post, it was correctly populating, but as we paged through the records in our DataForm, the SelectedItem was not set correctly.   In XAML: <ComboBox ItemsSource=     “{Binding Data, Source={StaticResource CustomerTypeSource}}”      DisplayMemberPath=”CodeText”      SelectedItem=”{Binding CustomerTypeId, Mode=TwoWay}”/> Regardless of the customer type for a Customer, […]
