» How To Validate ASP.NET Pages
by Manjushree Das | Published 10/17/2006 |  | Rating:

Validation is pretty much necessary in almost all kind of applications. The simple fact is that humans are prone to make mistakes while entering data. In order to build a fully fledged application which is free from errors and not susceptable to crashes we should pay attention to input validation. Input validation is the process of making sure that the user provides the accurate type of data because “prevention is better than cure”. If an application requires certain specific data and we feed another type of data then definitely the result is an error. So care must be taken to enter data in a particular format. This can be better explained with the help of an example.

» ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming
by David Jeavons | Published 08/02/2006 |  | Rating:

If you want to get up to speed with the majority of the new features offered by ASP.NET 2.0 then this is definitely one of the books that should be sitting on your bookshelf.

This book is aimed at those developers who already have a working knowledge of ASP.NET 1.x but does not require the developer to have knowledge of ASP.NET 2.0. The main goal of the book is to introduce the new features of ASP.NET 2.0, but unlike a standard reference book that will simply discuss each new control and all of its properties and methods the author has taken a different approach and has instead decided to introduce these new controls by building a fully functional website for a fictitious Pub. The website is called "TheBeerHouse" and incorporates such features as Newsletters, Opinion Polls, Forums and even an E-Commerce section among many other cool features. The website for this book can be viewed here.

The full title of this book is "ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming, Problem - Design - Solution" and each chapter is laid out in three parts. The first part outlines the problem that will be overcome in the chapter, the second part discusses the design that will be implemented to overcome the problem and the third part implements the code discussed in the design section. I found that this format works really well, especially if you are relatively new to website programming as the author takes you through every detail that he himself faced when designing the website.   So, rather than simply saying which design he will implement, he discusses all of the possible designs that he may have implemented and goes through the pros and cons of each one before then detailing the reasons for choosing a particular design. This actually gives you a good understanding of the different options that you have available to you for various problems and the reasons why you may choose one over the other based on the scenario you face at the time.

» Using ASP.NET DataGrid Web Server Control
by Misha Zhutov | Published 11/03/2005 |  | Rating:

It would be hard to find a web developer who doesn’t need to use a DataGrid. This control is ideal for data presentation. Besides the visualization, it provides a powerful set of possibilities to edit, delete, add and update data. ASP.NET includes a well designed, powerful DataGrid Web Server Control which makes the life of web developers easier. I remember the time when we had to implement the grid's functionallity manually in classic ASP. And, although, a lot of time has passed since first ASP.NET was released and a lot of information exists on the  web, still there are a quite a bit of questions asked on forums about DataGrid features. In this article I will demonstrate some DataGrid features such as editing, updating, deleting, sorting, paging, etc. which are quite often used by many web developers.

» The Low Down on ASP.NET DropDownList Control
by Guest Author | Published 01/10/2003 |  | Rating:
Whenever I see a DropDownList control, my brain says "Yes! That is a ComboBox!" That's because I've been programming in Visual Basic 6.0 for too long. VB6 has something called a ComboBox. It was given that name because it could be used in different ways. That was way cool but whenever I had to write a help file or explain an application to a customer, I couldn't use the term "ComboBox" without them wrinkling their brow and frowning at me. The "combo" aspect of the control never made sense to users, only programmers. So I started calling it a drop-down list. That made more sense to the customer. No more wrinkled brows. No more frowns. (But sometimes in the middle of the night I would quietly whisper ... "ComboBox! ComboBox!"). [read article...]
