Thursday Linkorama

I've had a load of tabs open in my browser for the last week, all of which are useful and interesting, but none of which justify a full post. Here they are:

Scott Guthrie talking about the asp:Listiew Control which is coming in ASP.NET 3.5 - I've been working with GridViews and Repeaters over the past couple of weeks, and doing so is making me really look forward to the ListView! As welcome as the control will be, you have to think that it's been a loooong time in coming (thanks for the link Doug, even if I did forget you mentioning it!).

Sticking with the GridView theme, I found a couple of nice GridView related articles on Matt Berseth's site. Improved GridView clientside sorting is exactly what it sounds like, as is Gridview resizable column headers.

Microsoft Operation's team lists of the top 10 changes in IIS7 here, aka, 10 thing IIS geeks are looking forward to in 7.0

Silverlight HTML Text block is another link which is exactly what it sounds like. Silverlight's primary text display object (aptly named "TextBlock") does not natively have a way to display HTML - HTML Text Block on the other hand, does (are you surprised?). 

AJAX: Client Side Actions Before and After PostBack is another useful article for people working with UpdatePanels (which despite all their evils are sometimes too tempting to resist). The article covers triggering events before and after an UpdatePanel's events using PageRequestManager. I'm still looking for a decent approach to triggering code conditionally after an UpdatePanel has refreshed, without needing to resort to hidden fields, but that's another story.

My name is Ross Hawkins and I'm a developer, consultant, business owner and writer based in Auckland, New Zealand (pictured below!). My current work revolves around ASP.NET, C#, jQuery, Ajax, SQL Server, and a mix of other Microsoft development technologies.

I also have about 15 years of experience with IBM Lotus Notes/Domino and associated technologies. While Notes/Domino is no longer my primary focus I still like to dabble and keep my skills up to date.

I own and run 2 businesses - Hawkins Consulting Services, and Ignition Development.

Useful IIS Rewrite Rules

The IIS Rewrite Module is easy to use, however for some rules it can take a bit of trial and error to get your syntax correct. After using it for many projects across multiple customers, I thought it might be useful to put up a post containing a small collection of the useful rules I’ve come across, for your copying and pasting pleasure.

Microsoft AJAX Extensions: Sys.Debug is null or not an object

One of the breaking changes which was made with the 1.0 release of the Microsoft Ajax Extensions was the renaming of the 'Debug' class to 'Sys.Debug' for reasons of compatiability with other frameworks. Breaking changes like this can often be a source of frustration..

Simple ASP.NET Character Counter

A textbox character counter is a pretty simple piece of functionality, and there's a lot of different ways to apply one to your application.
