ScottGu – VS2008 Code editor features

Posted in Asp.Net, C#, Software Development, Web Development on August 7, 2007 by Shaun

I’ve obviously been neglecting to read Scott’s blog for a while.  He’s got a fantastic entry detailing just a couple of the nice features in Visual studio 2008’s code editor.  One nice feature I like the look of is the ability to make the intellisense window transparent so you can see what’s under it.  I’ve often been caught blank minded when coding and had to cancel the intellisense window just to see what the hell it was I was about to do.  the coders version of walking into a room and then forgetting why the hell you went there in the first place I suppose.  Yeh i know I’m weired ;0)

Anyhoo.  Check out the blog entry for more details.

Download the Creating controls with the ASP.Net control toolkit webcast.

Posted in Ajax Links, Asp.Net, Atlas on April 5, 2007 by Shaun

I fully intended to watch the entire webcast last night but unforseen technical issues with my home office pc meant I dropped out shortly after it started. Thankfully the webcast is available for download. The Public sector developer weblog has the links available. Note: I was asked for registration details again whenI downloaded it this morning so be prepared to use your live login or register to download.

More free reference material. – ASP.Net Ajax cheat sheets

ASP.Net Ajax 1.0 RTM

Posted in Ajax Links, Asp.Net, Atlas on January 24, 2007 by Shaun

January 2007 is fast going down as the month of key releases.

Today is no different as we see the RTM (final) version of Microsoft ASP.Net Ajax 1.0. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that I have been using the CTP’s and Beta’s since last April and I have seen many improvements. The 1.0 final release promises to be a fundamental release that will see many ASP.Net applications update to include more AJAX capabilities as development departments realize just how easy it is with ASP.Net Ajax.

I’m still not convinced that the bugs are all out, but I do think that you should invest some of your time downloading and using this if only for the ease of hooking up Web services and server-side code to your client-side scripts etc…
ASp.Net Ajax 1.0 allows you to use your existing investment in Visual Studio 2005 to build richer more client friendly ASP.Net applications with less effort. And if that wasn’t enough then make note: it’s from Microsoft and it’s free…

There is also a control toolkit containing over 30 controls for you to make use of including Accordion, AutoComplete, Masked Edit, Tabs. This part is a community shared-source project and there is plenty of documentation, samples and an SDK so you can create your own controls, why not have a go and submit them for inclusion in the toolkit’s future releases.

Then if you are still feeling adventurous you could download the ASP.Net Ajax Futures January CTP which extends the Core ASp.Net Ajax 1.0 platform with extra stuff not yet in the released version. If you used the CTP versions of ASP.Net Ajax then you will possibly need this as some stuff didn’t make it into the release version for one reason or another and you may find your projects break without it.
