You gotta love SeeWindowsVista

Have you checked out http://www.seewindowsvista.com/ ??? It is a very cool way to see some amazing things that developers are doing with Vista and .NET Framework 3.0. The site is clearly focused at end-users, but as a developer you might want to know what technology bets it took to make those apps.. I did a little poking around and here is what I was able to find out.... If there is some specific showcase you’d like to find more about please let me know. Accruent : WPF Allscripts Healthcare : WPF AMG-Mercedes : WPF British Library : WPF HVC: WPF North Face: WPF Otto Group : WPF, WCF, InfoCard, ClickOnce Scripps : WPF 90 Degree Software : WPF and WCF Areva : WPF iBloks : WPF Sourcecode (K2.NET) : WF, WCF, WPF Mike talks a bit more about these...

Even more on .NET Framework 3.0...

I wanted to respond to a few comments.. Keeron asked about what .NET Framework includes exactly. JasonZ does a good job with this one.. The Linq support for C# (and VB for that mater) is scheduled for Orcas... We have not locked on a final version number, my hunch will be “.NET Framework 3.5” We do actually have a merged Windows SDK that includes all of the content as of .NET Framework 3.0\Vista... George asks about SP1 of the .NET Framework 2.0... Again the details have not been 100% worked out, so don’t take this as an official statement, but I expect SP1 of the .NET Framework 2.0 to be at the same time as Orcas .NET Framework ships. For servicing releases we generally do not change the assembly version number at all (this makes it an in place...

Toward .NET Framework 3.0...

Wow – I am really happy about all the feedback we have received on Soma’s blog about the name change from WinFX to .NET Framework 3.0! I feel very lucky to work on a product that people care so passionately about. As you might guess, this decision was one we discussed at great length in internally... I wanted to share some of the discussion from my point of view... For me, this debate started years ago, before .NET Framework 2.0 (aka “Whidbey”) even shipped. I was working on pulling together the developer platform story for Longhorn (which would later be named Vista) and it was clear at the time that what we wanted to do was to make a compelling, coherent developer platform that was logically the successor to the .NET Framework 2.0. While much...

Using Forms Authentication for All Types of Content

One of my all time favorite IIS7 demos is using Forms authentication for all types of content. Forms authentication is not new. Back when I built web apps, we used to hand craft login forms, user databases, and all of the script and SQL code in between to custom authenticate users to the web application. Forms authentication has come a long way with IIS7 and ASP.NET. One of the reasons it is so fun to use, is that it demonstrates several of the overarching goals we set out to deliver with IIS7, including: integrated pipeline . with this demo you are using the existing asp.net forms authentication module for non-asp.net content. cool dude unifed config system . in this demo you are storing IIS and ASP.NET configuration settings in the same web...

Testing the Toolkit

When we first started working on the Toolkit, we evaluated several different testing methods. First, we looked at the testing features built intoVSTS specifically for ASP.NET but they mostly just watch page round trips, and therefore wouldn't work for our stuff that's modifying the DOM at runtime. We also looked at some of the Javascript testing frameworks out there like JUnit, as well as something that the Atlas team had put together. Each of these had short comings as well, for example they don't deal well with post-backs. Of course, with AJAX you want to minimize postbacks, but we've designed the Toolkit to work well with traditional ASP.NET server-side programming as well, so thre are scenarios where they make sense. Plus we needed to make...

Got a cool customized Starter Kit site? Show it off on edream.org

Sue Googe left a comment on my blog today about her own customized Personal Web Site called edream . It is an awesome example of how someone can take our Starter Kits and really customize them to get their own unique experience. My favorite feature of the site is the ability to list your cool customized Starter Kit site right on her list. If you have your own site, you should definitely add it to the list, there are already almost 50 listed, lets get that list up to 500 or 1000 ASAP. I'll have to go add my (terrible) site today :) -- but definiltey check it out. Read More...

CSS Class Selectors and ID Selectors

EDIT: the blogging engine may be eating my style content, so if you don't see colors, bolds, and such in the below text, check out the same entry as an HTML file on my web site at http://www.nocommonground.com/blogSamples/selectors.htm Classes vs IDs Classes and IDs both allow you to define how a control will look on a page, though they have different uses, and shouldn't be used interchangeable. The first and biggest difference, is that with ID's, you can only have a single instance of an ID on a page. For example, if you have a DIV on your page with the ID as "myDiv" you cannot have another control (of any type) with the same ID. Thus, if you create a selector, you can only use it once. With classes, you can use it as many times as you want...
