ASP.NET Personal Web Site Starter Kit - Ajax Enabled with .NET Framework 3.5 and VS2008

I recently grabbed the ASP.NET Personal Web Site Starter Kit that we wrote for VS2005\.NET Framework 2.0 and opened it up in VS2008 to see how the new tool and platform could help. It was fun and painless to Ajax Enable the site with the new features in ASP.NET 3.5 and VS2008. Here is a run down of a improvements I have made. Download the full source code for this project VS2008 Can Target .NET Framework 2.0 First, I opened up the project in VS2008, but did not upgrade to .NET Framework 3.5. This is a HUGE feature for VS2008... It means that you can move to the latest and greats dev tool WITHOUT requiring the whole team to move or change all your servers over. In VS2005, I spent most of my time in markup view... while I love the full control...

Dates and JSON

JSON is a great data format and it's taken the Internet by storm for a number of good reasons. But because of a strange oversight in the EcmaScript specs , there is no standard way of describing dates in JSON . There's been a lot of discussion on this topic and it still remains a problem today. In the Microsoft Ajax Library , we've tried a number of different approaches before we converged to the solution we're using today. The first thing we tried was to inject Date constructors in the JSON string. This is a (very) bad idea for a number of reasons. First, it simply does not conform to the JSON specs . Second, any JSON parser that validates its input before parsing it will cough on such a thing. Finally, it establishes a precedent: why would...

Get namespaces from an XML Document with XPathDocument and LINQ to XML

A fellow emailed me earlier asking how to get the namespaces from an XML document, but he was having trouble because the XML had some XML declarations like <?foo?>. A System.Xml Way XPathDocument has two cool methods, GetNamespace(localName) and GetNamespaceInScope, but they need a currentNode to work with. string s = @"<?mso-infoPathSolution blah=""blah""?> <?mso-application progid=""InfoPath.Document"" versionProgid=""InfoPath.Document.2""?> <my:ICS203 xml:lang=""en-US"" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"            xmlns:my=""http://schemas.microsoft...

Tips & Tricks: Web Server Settings for Web Application Projects now can be stored per user as well as per project

Web server settings, which are accessible inside Web Application Projects (WAPs) property pages (Web section)  allow you to specify settings associated to to Visual Studio Development Server or IIS.  Many a times in a team development environment it is preferred that these settings are shared across the teams providing consistency; at the same time many other teams prefer that these settings be developer specific. To support both of these scenarios in Visual Studio 2008 the web server settings now has an additional checkbox as highlighted below:   By default this check box comes checked and it implies that these settings will be stored in the project file (i.e. .csproj or .vbproj) and when opened in an XML editor will look as...

.NET Framework Library Source Code available for viewing

It's live and you can give it a try now! Ten minutes ago Shawn and Scott released the hounds. If you'd like to step through .NET Framework Source code, here's what you need to do. Install this QFE .

Go into Tools|Options|Debugging|General and turn off "Enable Just My Code" and turn on "Enable Source Server." Go to Symbols and add this URL http://referencesource.microsoft.com/symbols and a local cache path. Make sure "search only when symbols are loaded manually" is checked. > That's it. Crazy.
