Technology Related Links – Post #1

I’m going to try to put together a list of links I grab and post them to intermittent blog posts. I’d like to do a post like this once a day or at the very least once a week, but let’s see where things go. 🙂 Anyway, here’s the first batch of links summarized by technology. Some of these may be a couple of weeks old, so please bare with me as the first list is quite lengthy. I’ll also add in recently released books, software releases and updates, and upcoming technology events. If you are looking to follow this … Continue reading Technology Related Links – Post #1

Telerik Controls and Demo Application Support ASP.NET MVC

I received Telerik’s monthly newsletter this morning and noticed that they’ve added support for ASP.NET MVC to their AjaxControls. Now they’ve taken it a step further to produce an MVC forums application using their control suite. If you are a Telerik subscriber, you can download their demo application from their website.

2 Great ASP.NET Podcasts

I’ve been quite busy working on a side project in which I’ll post more details very soon. However, I came across the two latest ASP.NET Podcasts in which I thought I’d share: Caching with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 ASP.NET AJAX with JQuery

ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 (Formerly "ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions") Released

ASP.NET 3.5 Service Pack 1, which was formerly called the ASP.NET 3.5 extensions, has been released. The NetFX update was available as part of the SQL Server 2008 download available on Friday. Now it is available as a separate download. There are quite a few enhancements in 3.5 including Dynamic Data, the Entity Framework, the AJAX History control, better Silverlight support and more! Be sure to download it today at http://www.asp.net/downloads/3.5-sp1/.

Known Postback Issue with AJAX Controls

I came across a postback issue while using the CascadingDropDown AJAX control. I had a web page with 3 DropDownList controls. The data for these controls was populated from the CascadingDropDown which would bind the data at runtime. The issue with this is that when data is being bound at runtime, it cannot be validated during postback unless each value is registered with the page.  In most cases, this wouldn’t make sense. So, we have to fall back to turning off EventValidation at an application level in the web.config (attribute is found on the pages element) or at the page … Continue reading Known Postback Issue with AJAX Controls

Getting Started with the AjaxDataControls in Visual Studio 2005

Sonu Kapoor just posted about getting started with the AjaxDataControls in Visual Studio 2005. The AjaxDataControls can be found on CodePlex at http://www.codeplex.com/AjaxDataControls/. Included in the controls are a JavaScript version of the Repeater, DataList, and DataGrid. If you’d like to have AJAX functionality over your data with minimal coding, I’d definitely check this out.

AJAX Tip: Don’t forget about the Async Web Service Calls!

FireFox. Internet Explorer 8. Both have great JavaScript debugging tools. Thanks to those tools, I only spent 5 minutes on an issue that could have taken hours to figure out. It was one of those moments when you know its something simple but you can’t figure out what it is. I had a page that loaded web service data into an AjaxDataControl Repeater. After the web service call, I entered some JavaScript to grab a page parameter and choose the item on the page that was selected. When I ran the page, I received an error that the object was … Continue reading AJAX Tip: Don’t forget about the Async Web Service Calls!
