I have been learning ASP.NET my self and is about to dive into the nitty gritty by creating a club website for a club.
It will be basically pretty simple. It will have around 4-6 pages consisting of:
5. Calendar for events
My question is should I use MVC to develop such website? As I am totally a noob in MVC development, but if it is better then I would need to learn MVC first, otherwise I'll just do it the standard way.What should I use for the calendar of events?
Used jQuery enough to "enhance" my views (client side validations, modal popups, etc) but for nothing serious.Working on a app that's pretty much what one could call whatever you would call something like Google Mail.So while I'm jumping into some chapters on Asp.Net MVC with Ajax, I thought I'd ask here for some links to good resources on the topic.
One big question is if one will still be able to "post" strongly typed viewmodels? I saw some of the existing code today where the form values (there are multiple "forms" on each view, though I won't call it forms....they are not wrapped in forms!) where the values of the input controls get collected and passed on to an action method with jQuery. Did not make sense to me sending of the individual values seperately into an action method taking like 10 input parameters.
I have a web application and on that application i update a sql database what i want is that when i update the database from the web application a notification will be sent to any one openening my application or a pop up appears to them on their desktop informing them that the database is updated to check all this will be in an intranet. I'm using ASP.Net and I'm the admin for all the PCs in the network and the server.
How would I go about creating a desktop application that would be capable of generating an ASP.NET master page, perhaps using drag and drop for the different allowed elements (image, text, video). I would take the co-ordinates and generate a master page that can be used later.
I need to develop a project that needs to have a Ticker and an AdRotator, apart from some button controls and a banner.I have two options - ASP.NET and Windows Forms.With Windows Forms, I've been able to develop the Ticker, but I don't know how to develop the AdRotator.With ASP.NET, I'll have to develop Ticker using AJAX, whereas the AdRotator is already present.
The software is to be used as a standalone. I'm thinking of using Windows Forms for the development so that the requirements for the end-user is only the .NET Framework and not ths IIS plus the deployment would be easier. What should I use for the development?If you suggest Windows Forms, please throw some light for the development of AdRotator.Note: I don't have any knowledge on AJAX and I don't have much time for the development. Is it possible to develop the Ticker using some other technology other than AJAX ?
I got 3 "user role specific" Areas and 1 Public Area.Also, I have a "Shared" directory for controllers that's shared among the Areas.
On the Shared views, I have a "Return to [whereucomefrom]" link, that will depend on ..well, where you come from. If it was only the previous url I needed, I could just figure the referer and make that the url. But I also need the link text.
Say for instance "New Message" in Shared can be called from the "Customer" Area. If so, the return link would be "Return to my Orders", opposed to say "Return to Messages" for another area.So I want to pass on a return url and return url text from the link in an area view, so the shared view can display that link. I am not allowed to use Session and want to keep my URL's clean (sth like /Messages returnurl=customer/orders&linktext=Return to Orders" will not do).
I'm working on a URL Helper extension method as we speak, but I know in advance that is going to create an ugly url....
Within an existing ASP.NET page I've created the following layout, which is a tabbed header and content area. When the tabs are clicked (using JQuery) I show the relevant content, and hide all the other content for that respective tab, like so...
I'd like to expand this functionality to make it into a User Control, so that I could re-use the code more easily. Once the control is created, I'd like to be able to use it like this:[Code]....
where I can start learning how to do this, or offer direct help on the code? I've read many tutorials for creating controls using existing controls (e.g. custom labels etc) but they are all too simple. With the above, do I need to create a ContentArea control first, then work onto the TabbedControl? How do I get ASP.NET to render out the contents of my ContentArea (including ASP.NET controls that are contained within it)?
the process to get multiple word suggesions for a text box in asp.net using Ajax? Actually I got a solution for that, [URL] But it used Atlas. When I am running with this code in my application, it is conflicting with Script Manager that is already there in Masterpage. How can I overcome that problem. Is there any built-in solution in latest versions of Ajax?
I'm starting to plan an architecture for a big web application, and I wanted to get suggestions and/or recommendations on where to begin and which technologies and/or frameworks to use. The application will be an Intranet-based web site using Windows authentication, running on IIS and using SQL Server and ASP.NET. It'll need to be structured as a main/shell application with sub-applications that are "pluggable" based on some configuration settings.
The main or shell application is to provide the overall user interface structure - header/footer, dynamically built tabs for each available sub-app, and a content area in which the sub-application will be loaded when the user clicks on the sub-application's tab. So, on start-up of the main/shell application, configuration information will be queried from a database, and, based on the user and which of the sub-apps are available, the main or shell app would dynamically build tabs (or buttons or something) as a way to access each individual application. On start-up, the content area will be populated with the "home" sub-app. But, clicking on an sub-app tab will cause the content area to be populated with the sub-app corresponding to the tab.
For example, we're going to have a reports application, a display application, and probably a couple other distinct applications. On startup of the main/shell application, after determining who the user is, the main app will query the database to determine which sub-apps the user can use and build out the UI. Then the user can navigate between available sub-apps and do their work in each. Finally, the entire app and all sub-apps need to be a layered design with presentation, service, business, and data access layers, as well as cross-cutting objects for things such as logging, exception handling, etc.
Anyway, my questions revolve around where to begin to plan something like this application. What technologies/frameworks would work best in developing a solution for this application? MVC? MVP? WCSF? EF? NHibernate? Enterprise Library? Repository Pattern? Others? I know all these technologies/frameworks are not used for the same purpose, but knowing which ones to focus on is a little overwhelming. Which ones would be the best choice(s) for a solution? Which ones work well together for an end-to-end design? How would one structure the VS project for something like this?
Im using the ajax autocomplete extender I would like to know how can I get the word Im typing in the textbox to highlight in the suggestions box example im typing in 'Mo' in the text box autocomplete starts. How do I get this 'Mo' styled in the suggestion box?
have a test project for testing methods in the Business/Models tier of my application. For methods that do calculations or have return types this works great.What would some suggested ways to perform (any is this even necessary) testing on methods that would normally have no return type, such as a 'Delete' method?Example:
How do you stop the auto suggest feature from dropping down suggestions while using jquery autocomplete. The auto suggest is dropping down over the autocomplete selections. Its terribly annoying. I've tried z-index. Nothing seems to stop it.
I have searched and have found master detail tutorials.found other sites with links to controls you have to buy but i thought some time back i saw a great tutorial on building this setup and it was somewhat pretty simple and detailed in steps.
Here is what im trying to do and maybe someone can point me in the right direction to links or suggestion on controls to use that may already exist that are free,We have a search page that i have setup to handle a number of different searches as well as differnet result views..we have 1 search that returns/needs to return alot of details.to much for a gridview layout.Currently i have it setup to return to a formview and paging each record.BUT at the moment,in our test server we have over 400 records.so no one is going to page thru 400 records.so the 2 methods used are not going to work for us.so after meeting and discussing it.we want to see if the following can be accomplished in a practical way.
We want to setup the results to be returned initially in a gridview.. ( just a few key columns,kinda high level view ).then if you want to view details about any specific record,you can click on it or select it and the row is expanded to display the rest of the details.this will allow us to display all 400 records.25 or so per page of the gridview and allow them to chose what they want to see in more details.
Like i said i found a few examples online already,but not all of them are really detailed in the steps.so can anyone suggest a good source for accomplishing something like this.what would be cool.if possible is to open the formview that is already built under the selected record.kinda like CollapsiblePanelExtender that is within ajax
I'm a little stuck here, with my first server control. I'll just post the whole thing, as I'm sure I've done plenty of mistakes. The main thing for me to find out is if there's a more elegang way to write this.
What I'm trying to accomplish here is to write a panel with custom HTML inside it. Inside the custom HTML, I need to put some server controls I can actually reach. My attempt at finding the span in the code failed, so there's obviously something wrong.
Obviously, I've only just begun, but I'd really value some feedback before I dig myself in too deep ;)
I have a page that I am adding user controls to the bottom of the controls each postback. The User Control has a textbox in it and the focus needs to be on this newly created control textbox each time. It all works almost perfectly however when there are too many controls to fit on the page, because I set the focus to the textbox the bottom of the page is set to the textbox that has focus not the very bottom of the page. I have a submit button below this which ends up below the page limit. How can I set focus to a textbox but still scroll to the every bottom of the page to show the submit button.
When the users presses submit, I get the below error and for the life of me cannot figure out why! I have tried GET as well, byt that just seems to post to itself and just puts the form vairables in the URL rather than going to formprocess.aspx.page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access.Please try the following:Contact the Web site administrator if you believe that this request should be allowed.Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.HTTP Error 405 - The HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.Internet Information Services (IIS)
I'm using a form to POST credentials to a page. I'm able to POST my credentials to a page, but I'm stuck on trying to load that page that I POSTed my credentials to. In other words, the POST works, but the page doesn't then reload...here's a code snippet of what I'm running. I suspect I'm missing something and my knowledge of classes is limited so maybe it's a particular class I need to use.
I have the following HTML content. When i click the button, the page doesn't post to URL provided in action tag. The corresponding application is running, but still the page load of the CrossPage.aspx was not invoked.
