Microsoft Atlas - Authentication Services

If you looking at MS Atlas's support for Authentication, you really need to check out this page over at

Microsoft Atlas Client-side Javascript Enumerations in the March CTP
It looks like enumerations have changed in the March CTP of Atlas.  To create an enumeration, you now call the Type.createEnum() method like below.  In this example, the EnumGBI is created.

    Type.createEnum("EnumGBI", "Good", 0, "Bad", 1, "Indifferent", 2);
    for (var strItems in EnumGBI.getValues())
        strOut += strItems + strReturn;

Microsoft Atlas - Updating Validators to the March CTP (targetElement -> id)

I'm in the process of updating my Atlas code to use the March CTP of Atlas.  I just went through the validators.  It looks like you need to modify the xml-script to use the "id" attribute of the control to validate as oppossed to using the "targetElement" attribute for this.  I pulled some of my hair out over this, but its working now.  :-)

It looks like we got preliminary approval for out IIS7 book.  This is good.  The book will be a mix of content for admins (mostly) and developers.  I'm looking forward to doing the developer oriented content.
