  • Atlas to AJAX - Intellisense Bug on Content Pages

    Tags: ASP.net AJAX

    I'm sure there are many that have had headaches over this - you spent hours doing "find and replace" jobs throughout your project only to find that despite an errorless build you have the red squigglies all over the place...and I'm sure you have also found that the solution is to change the tag prefix in the web.config from asp to something like Ajax.

    Well the bug is official! read more about it here on Scott Gu's blog.

    Basically he suggests to do the above with the tag prefix or (as the bug only rears its head on content pages of a master page) have the master page open at all times.

    Personally I think I'll be sticking with changing the tag prefix....I think it makes the markup easier to read and navigate anyway.

  • Web Developer Helper with ASP.NET AJAX support

    Tags: ASP.net AJAX

    This is an awesome little tool; "Web Development Helper is an Internet Explorer plugin that provides a set of useful tools to both Ajax/JavaScript developers as well as asp.net page and control developers."

    You can download it here, for those who are unaware the guy who wrote it Nikhil Kothari is an architect on the asp.net team, he has a few projects you can see here.  One (Script#) is a C# compiler that outputs JavaScript!! How cool is that!

  • .NET 3.0 = Confusion

    Maybe not total confusion but just a little!  Perhaps I don't read enough about the subject but I could certainly do with some feedback to clear this up!

    .net 3.0 released the other day as was a WorkFlow tools for Visual Studio 2005 but WCF and WPD tools are still in CTP?!? What's all that about?! We have the runtime but not the tools? :-)

    Then there's LINQ and all it derivatives....where's that fit it? I thought that was going to be in .net 3?

    Dying to get my hands on LINQ!!!!

     

    Thoughts?? :)

  • ASP.net AJAX: I have a host who is installing it in the GAC

    Well we all now know that ASP.net AJAX is only supported from MS as a GAC installation, and we all know what a complete pain that is....mainly due to hosting companies just wont install it. Well I have one and yes I am going to share...!!

    DHosting, they are a top company.  Always looking to improve their equipment, service etc.  UK based, the owner Chris is always on MSN and more than willing to help. Plus SQL 2005 with connection from client Management Studio/Win app's etc....

    Enjoy!
