PHP and the FastCGI Module for IIS 7.0

I've blogged several times in the past about how cool IIS 7.0 is. Many of my posts have highlighted some of the rich new ASP.NET and .NET developer opportunities it brings (integrated pipeline, unified web.config configuration, integrated admin tool experience, etc). It is really going to open up huge developer opportunities and provide an immensely customizable web-server for people to use. In addition to focusing on .NET developer features, we are also working hard to enable non-.NET development stacks to easily integrate with the web server. Earlier today Bill Staples (who runs the IIS team) demoed a great new FastCGI module for IIS7 at the ZendCon PHP Conference being held this week: We've been working closely with Zend this past fall on...

ComponentArt on migrating to ASP.NET AJAX Beta 1

Miljan over at ComponentArt wrote his first post explaining how their migration to Beta 1 went (i.e. great, the whole thing was done in four days). He has some very nice things to say about the platform, which we're all very flattered about: "After getting over the initial hump, we found ASP.NET AJAX Beta 1 to be remarkably well functioning and stable." If you don't know ComponentArt , they are the publishers of one of the best component libraries for ASP.NET , and they're now building it for ASP.NET AJAX . Check it out. http://blogs.componentart.com/miljan/archive/2006/10/31/ASP.NET-AJAX-Beta-1-and-ComponentArt-Web.UI.aspx Share this post: Email it! | bookmark it! | digg it! | reddit! Read More...

Bringing new life to your VB6 apps

I just saw a cool screen cast on the Microsoft Interop Forms Toolkit 1.0…. Great stuff! It enables you to incrementally enhance your VB6 applications with the power of the .NET Framework…. It has been a while sense I have really wanted to install VB6, but this makes me want to just to see what I can do. I think this is a great solution for anyone supporting an existing VB6 app that wants to be able to leverage all the great stuff in the .NET Framework. The screen cast shows advanced databinding support, but there is much, much more power available in the .NET Framework. Has anyone tried this? What do you think? Read More...

What is the deal with UpdatePanel

The developer for UpdatePanel recently posted a couple of good articles about the changes we made in the most recent Beta… Enjoy! What's up with UpdatePanels and how come nothing works? This is a higher level piece that explains how UpdatePanel changed from being automatic (and broken) in the CTP to the new functionality in the beta. HOWTO: Write controls compatible with UpdatePanel without linking to the ASP.NET AJAX DLL This article goes in depth on how to use the new registration APIs on ScriptManager, but without linking to the Atlas assembly Read More...

Tip/Trick: Handling Errors with the UpdatePanel control using ASP.NET AJAX

Luis Abreu is an ASP.NET MVP who has a great blog on the http://msmvps.com blog site. Earlier today he posted a great tutorial post that describes how to use some of the new features in the ASP.NET AJAX Beta1 release to add more robust error handling into your application. I highly recommend reading and bookmarking it for future use. Error handling in an AJAX world can often be tricky -- especially when AJAX call-backs are taking place and a mixture of client and server code is running within an application. In its most recent release, the <asp:updatepanel> control that comes with ASP.NET AJAX now has much more robust error handling and reporting features for you to use. Specifically: 1) You can now handle the "OnAsyncPostBackError" event...

Useful Web Design Links: Submitting to search engines, and picking colors/colours

I just finished teaching "From Prints To Online: Creating Your Own Website" class at PCNW and we found a couple of useful links that I though I would share. Getting listed on the major search engines: Google: http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl Search.MSN.Com: http://search.msn.com/docs/submit.aspx Yahoo: http://search.yahoo.com/free/mobile/request We were also searching for custom colours to use on your website, and when we searched for colors, we came across the Web Color Wheel . It's a pretty neat little site that lets you move the mouse until you find a colour you like, then it gives you the appropriate HTML color codes that you can use to pick the colors. Read More...

CSS Control Adapters Update (Beta3)

I've blogged in the past about the great CSS Control Adapters that Russ and Heidi have been working on. These adapters use a new built-in extensibility mechanism in ASP.NET 2.0 called "control adapters" that allow you to plug-in into any ASP.NET server control and override, modify and/or tweak the rendering output logic of that control. The control adapters that Russ and Heidi built provide a pure CSS based rendering (no tables) for all of the ASP.NET Data (GridView, DataList, DetailsView, FormView, etc), Navigation (Menu, TreeView), and Login (Login, CreateUserWizard, ChangePassword, PasswordRecovery, LoginStatus) controls. You can learn more about them and how to use them with your projects from my past tutorial blog post here . Beta3 CSS...

Search autocomplete with ASP.NET AJAX Extensions

I am working on a rich content app for one of my talks at TechEd Europe and I thought it would be a good idea to implement a search box with an autocomplete of the past search quires. The intuition here is that the changes are someone else has searched for the same thing you are searching for, so past queries is an interesting set of options to offer. Not to mention it is fun to look at what other people are searching for ;-) What I think is cool about this is I was able to implement it with less than 10 lines of code and absolutely no database specific logic. I did this with a combination of the ASP.NET 2.0 profile store and the ASP.NET AJAX AutoCompleteExtender… Here is an example screenshot and all the code\markup required… I'd love to hear...
