LINQ to SQL (Part 7 - Updating our Database using Stored Procedures)

Over the last few weeks I've been writing a series of blog posts that cover LINQ to SQL. LINQ to SQL is a built-in O/RM (object relational mapper) that ships in the .NET Framework 3.5 release, and which enables you to model relational databases using .NET classes. You can use LINQ expressions to query the database with them, as well as update/insert/delete data. Below are the first six parts in this series: Part 1: Introduction to LINQ to SQL Part 2: Defining our Data Model Classes Part 3: Querying our Database Part 4: Updating our Database Part 5: Binding UI using the ASP:LinqDataSource Control Part 6: Retrieving Data Using Stored Procedures In part 6 I demonstrated how you can optionally use database stored procedures (SPROCs) and user defined...

Migrating from Classic ASP to ASP.NET

A few links for migrating from Classic ASP to ASP.NET came through my inbox and I though some folks might find them usefull. 1. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/aa336573.aspx 2. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Aa479019.aspx 3. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms973813.aspx 4. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/aa336623.aspx Read More...

DNRTV Screencast - ASP.NET Debugging and Tracing Part 2

Last week Carl and I did another episode of DNRTV. We picked up exactly where we left off last time on ASP.NET Debugging and Tracing . So, I guess this ASP.NET Debugging and Tracing Part 2 . As with all my DNRTV episodes rather than planning Carl and I just start talking and see what happens. It seems more genuine that way, to me. We screw around with Symbols and Process Explorer in this episode. We also look around the ASP.NET Temporary files and take a look at the assemblies that are generated from your ASPX files, then we add a few string literals and see where in the generated code (and control tree) they show up. All in all, I thought it was a pretty decent show. It's 36 minutes long with a 3 minute advertisement in the middle. I hope you...

Public Hotfix Patch Available for VS 2005 F5 Debugging Performance Issue with ASP.NET

Over the last year we've seen several people report having performance problems when using F5 to run/debug ASP.NET 2.0 applications using Visual Studio 2005. The problem in theses cases typically wasn't with building the project, but rather that it sometimes took the debugger a really long time to hit the first breakpoint once it attached to the application (45+ seconds and longer sometimes). We recently posted a public hotfix patch that you can download and apply to fix this issue. You can download the hotfix immediately here . You can read more about it in this KB article here . Background on the Issue The particular bug fixed in this hotfix was surprisingly difficult to track down. The slowdown issue occurred when breakpoints were set in...

Using ASP.NET AJAX Control Extenders in VS 2008

Over the last few weeks I've blogged about the new VS 2008 JavaScript Intellisense and VS 2008 JavaScript Debugging features in Beta 2. I've also posted about how both ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 and ASP.NET AJAX 3.5 are supported with VS 2008 , as well as how you can get Silverlight 1.0 JavaScript Intellisense with VS 2008. One of the other small, but very useful, AJAX features you can now take advantage of in VS 2008 is its improved designer support for ASP.NET AJAX Control Extenders. What are ASP.NET Control Extenders? ASP.NET Control Extenders are controls that derive from the System.Web.UI.ExtenderControl base class, and which can be used to add additional functionality (usually AJAX or JavaScript support) to existing controls already declared on...
