This one kicked me in the butt for a few minutes this morning. We have a custom address label which was making ampersands in names access keys.
Per the sdk:
"Note You may want to display ampersands in a label control, rather than use them to create access keys. This may occur if you bind a label control to a field in a recordset where the data includes ampersands. To display ampersands in a label control, set the UseMnemonic property to false. If you wish to display ampersands and also have an access key, set the UseMnemonic property to true and indicate the access key with one ampersand (&) and the ampersand to display with two ampersands."
We are lining up our guest speakers for 2004. If you plan to be in the Richmond, VA or surrounding areas (DC, Maryland, North Carolina) and would like to be a guest speaker, please let me know.
I have been configuring code groups with the Configuration Wizard. Today, I finally got around to coding this up to run with our MSI. In our code, we needed two code groups on each client workstation, one for Intranet and one of Internet access. The below code demonstrates how simple this can be. So, no I do not have to do this manually on all client workstations.
DimmachinePolicyLevel As PolicyLevel = Nothing
Dim ph As IEnumerator = SecurityManager.PolicyHierarchy
Do While ph.MoveNext
Dim p1 As PolicyLevel = CType(ph.Current, PolicyLevel)
If p1.Label = "Machine" Then
machinePolicyLevel = p1
If machinePolicyLevel Is Nothing Then Return
Dim permissionSet As PermissionSet = New NamedPermissionSet("FullTrust")
Dim membership As IMembershipCondition = New UrlMembershipCondition("http://<some ip address>/<some directory>/*")
Dim policy As PolicyStatement = New PolicyStatement(permissionSet)
Dim codeGroup As CodeGroup = New UnionCodeGroup(membership, policy)
codeGroup.Description = "FullTrust permissions for http://<some ip address>/<some directory>/"
codeGroup.Name = "AM.NET Intranet FullTrust"
Dim permissionSet2 As PermissionSet = New NamedPermissionSet("FullTrust")
Dim membership2 As IMembershipCondition = New UrlMembershipCondition("http://<some ip address>/<some directory>/*")
Dim policy2 As PolicyStatement = New PolicyStatement(permissionSet2)
Dim codeGroup2 As CodeGroup = New UnionCodeGroup(membership2, policy2)
codeGroup2.Description = "FullTrust permissions for http://<some ip address>/<some directory>/"
codeGroup2.Name = "AM.NET Internet FullTrust"
Anybody interested in starting a .NET one here?
These 2 methods have confused me for a while. I assumed under the covers calls to AddNew created a new DataRow, marked as Detached, just like a call to NewRow does.
A control does not work directly with a DataTable . When you bind a control, a DataView is created and the controls interacts with the datatable through that view.
So, calls to AddNew are interacting with the DataView, not the DataTable. AddNew creates a new DataRowView
Public Overridable Function AddNew() As DataRowView
So, you will be working with a DataRowView, not a DataRow, on calls to AddNew.
Well, we had over 45 folks attend our first Richmond, VA .NET Users Group meeting. Many thanks to Fahrenheit Technology (http://www.hottechnology.com) for providing pizza, drinks and a home for the first meeting. We have an awesome group. Tons and tons of talent and enthusiasm. Mike and I are working on a guest speakers for next year. I you are interested in speaking, let us know.
Ted Pattison's latest:
Building Applications and Components with Visual Basic .NET
If the content is as good as his COM+ book, I want to pick it up. Otherwise, I have too many unread .NET books on the shelf.
Ted Pattison teaching Smart Clients? Wow, too cool, we are there.
