I'm in the process of re-writing an existing survey application that is currently using nested repeater controls to display questions and answers. The application was not designed with future enhancements in mind and its a pain any time a new question has to be added to the application. The repeaters currently contain questions, answers, and controls(texbox, radiobuttonlist,etc.)
Is the repeater the correct control to use for this type of application? What is the best way to design this type of application and table structure? Are there any new controls or features in VS2010? How to design this application the correct way and make it more flexible?
how to make my source code to display on one line instead of multiple in source view. The display drives me batty when I'm trying to find something and I would prefer to display across the page instead of multiple lines down the page.
Web service error response (code/message etc) would you store it in a database? or would you keep the error response in a method.By the time I'm done with this, there will be hundreds of error response, maybe in the future, thousands? (I dont know yet, depends how large this web service grows).EDIT: error response is the response returned back to the application via the web service, (not to be confused with error logging).
Out of all the projects that contribute to MVC, I've added only the System.Web.Mvc project to my solution and I'm having trouble with the compilation of the aspx files. Firstly the page compiler complained that ViewResult<T> (which my View inherits from) was specified in two assemblies - the copy in the source code and the one in the GAC. I fixed this by changing my copy of the source code to a higher version and referencing the different verison within the 'compilation' tag in web.config. (In fact you can just delete the assembley reference altogether and it automatically uses the one in the solution.) Then it complained that Html helper methods couldn't find classes such as 'Controller'. Now I think this is because the official MVC assemblies in the GAC are looking for the correct version of 'System.Web.Mvc' (i.e. the one with the right public key) but my app is no longer referencing it.
I thought I'd fixed this with an assembley redirect to my version of the code but now the View templates are complaining about inheriting from classes that are in an assembley with the wrong public key.So is what I'm doing possible or do I need to be recompiling all of the MVC source code?
We have some problem in develepment server so we didnt recover the our project source code (asp.net 1.x with C#). now i have downloaded the files from the production server but the production server doesnt have the C# source code. its contain only the .dll file (singe dll file for all the aspx.cs and .cs classes) and design files. we need to update some functionalities in my project,so can i get .aspx.cs and .cs clasess from the project .dll? or how can i modify the clacess without source(.cs,.aspx.cs)?
If I deploy my ASP.NET project to a shared server web hosting, then is there a way to secure my source files so that the provider will not be able to access the source?. For example, the provider of my web hosting may download my files and then he will be able to get access to all my source.
I'm looking for a free shopping cart source code to start creating customized chart.MSC Musicstore sample code is too simple. NOPCommerce requires adding link into it in every page.Where so find such source code ?
In the Java world for instance, there are some very sophisticated tools to manage the quality of the source code, and that cover more than one dimension, such as :
Coding Rules Comments Complexity Unit testing Code coverage etc.
These tools are very useful to manage the technical debt. They connect to a repository of source code and scan it. They can be triggered automatically just by the fact of committing the source code.We have a large number of ASP.NET applications to maintain and evolve, and have continuous flow of demands for new ones to be created. We know that we have a technical debt, but we are facing some challenges of identifying it and having it under control.
there are some tools to manage the source code quality in ASP.NET applications like those mentioned above.
In the SQLMembershipProvider source for ASP.NET membership, there is a custom exception, MembershipPasswordException.
The definition of it is not part of the source, but when I do a goto definition on it, it opens the definition, which indicates: [from metatdata] and the file it came from is a dll, system.web.dll from a temporary directory.How did that get there or was it part of the msi install that the toolkit provider came with?
we have an application in production and the code is in Pre-Compiled form. The developer who developed that application left the company and we don't have any backup of source code. the only access we have is Pre Compiled code in the server. We need to fix the issues in the application now.Is there any way to Decompile (extract to actual source code) the PreCompiled code ?
The things I need to change are in my default.aspx file. First, at the bottom of my pages it has the name of the company that created the site for us. I want that taken off our site. I know it is a matter of going into the default.aspx file and removing the wording, but I cannot figure out how to go into it and change it.
Also in our default.aspx file, on line 167 and 168 there is a reference to the slideshow that is on our front page. There is a string missing that should point to our last two images, but again, I am unable to get into the default.aspx to edit it.
Evidently when our site was created, the developers used the precompilation tool so now I am unable to edit any of the files when I try to upload them into visual studio. Whenever I try to uplaod them I get the error "This is a marker file generated by the precompilation tool, and should not be deleted!"
I do have all of the original source files for the site, but as you know there are alot of them and I am not sure where to find the original default.aspx file or even what it would be named so I can make the changes to it. Also, once the changes are made will I have to precompile the entire site again, or can I just do the default.aspx and uplaod it to the server?
i know MVC is the future but for some of us still stuck in the good old webform land, i'm trying to learn how to do TDD and introduce better testing for our current application...
