Dec 2nd Links: ASP.NET, ASP.NET Dynamic Data, ASP.NET AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Visual Studio, Silverlight/WPF

I'm flying out later today on a pretty intense business trip (22,000 miles, 5 countries, 3 continents, 1 week, no sleep... :-), so my blog activity over the next week and a half will be pretty light.  To keep you busy till I return, here is the latest in my link-listing series.  Also check out my ASP.NET Tips, Tricks and Tutorials page and Silverlight Tutorials page for links to popular articles I've done myself in the past.

ASP.NET

  • Geolocation/Geotargeting Reverse IP Lookup Code: Scott Hanselman has a cool sample that demonstrates how to perform IP address lookups on users visiting your site to determine where they are located on the globe (down to the latitude and longitude).  Pretty cool stuff.

  • Tracking User Activity: Scott Mitchell has a nice article that discusses how to track end-user activity when visiting an ASP.NET web site.

  • iTunes Data Grid Skin: Matt Berseth continues his cool series showing off cool new skins you can apply to ASP.NET controls (especially the GridView and DetailsView controls).  This post shows off a pretty sweet iTunes like skin.

ASP.NET Dynamic Data

  • ASP.NET Dynamic Data Videos: Joe Stagner has 6 nice ASP.NET Dynamic Data "How Do I?" videos posted on www.asp.net that you can check out to learn about the new ASP.NET Dynamic Data feature in .NET 3.5 SP1.

  • ASP.NET Dynamic Data Routing: Rachel Appel has a nice post that talks about how to use the new ASP.NET routing features with ASP.NET Dynamic Data to enable customized URLs.

ASP.NET AJAX

ASP.NET MVC

  • How to Setup ASP.NET MVC on IIS6: Phil Haack has a great post that walks-through how to enable ASP.NET MVC on IIS6 servers (including how to enable it on a hosting server that you can't install anything on).

  • Fluent Route Testing in ASP.NET MVC: Ben Scheirman has a nice post where he blogs about new helper methods he is creating that make it easier to unit test ASP.NET MVC routes using a fluent API.

Visual Studio

WPF / Silverlight

  • XAML Power Toys - Instant Form Creation: Karl Shifflett has a great video that shows off his XAML Power Toys tool that integrates into Visual Studio and enables rapid forms creation for WPF and Silverlight.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Nice to have a lot of links using jQuery. I read recently (not sure where) that Microsoft will be switching to jQuery for their Ajax stuff which would be cool but seems a bit far fetched. Is there any truth to this?

We aren't switching to jQuery, but we are support jQuery going forward (and then adding additional feature through ASP.NET AJAX).  I'd recommend reading my blog posts here: weblogs.asp.net/.../jquery-and-microsoft.aspx and here: weblogs.asp.net/.../jquery-intellisense-in-vs-2008.aspx for more details.

Hope this helps,

Great Thanks.  Now could you explain why, if I disable a ASP.NET button, the onclick attribute doesn't get rendered?  I mean I realize that obviously no one would ever send a disabled control to the client with code that might just enable it now would they?

Kinda off track, but why oh why is there no "Attach to Process" in the Visual Web Dev 2008 Express sp1 ?

My google searches drive me often to archives of this site. Infortunately, the code examples are images, and their links do not function anymore once archived. Seeing answers to my problems - except for missing code - is a great frustration.

Would it be possible to have code in HTML, or to archive the code images ?

Thank you.

<base href="http://yoursite/" />
