Is it ok to make my own element attributes?

I want to make up some new attributes for elements like <div> and <a>. Those new attributes will be used to store data to be used by click handler jquery code.  Is that ok to do?  Is it supported by older browsers?   Testing on IE8 and Chrome, I am able to use jquery to store and recall in these made up attributes of a <DIV>element. ( I tried to use expression web super preview to test the code.  But apparantly, super preview does not run javascript. )thanks, <div id="div1" MadeUpAttr="abc"></div>     <script type="text/javascript">      $(document).ready(function ()      {        var s1 = $('#div1').attr('MadeUpAttr');        alert('MadeUpAttr: ' + s1);         $('#div1').attr('MadeUpAttr', 'efg');        var s2 = $('#div1').attr('MadeUpAttr');        alert('MadeUpAttr: ' + s2);      });    </script>

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

Beginner: this doesn't make sense to me


Do you need and "empty" script tag in the head to run scripts that are in the body?  Also, can you run JQuery scripts if they're in the <head> tag?  The first sample only works if the JQuery script is in the form (and body) tag, not in the head - even if I add $(document).ready(function() { });

This works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<a href="">Here is a link</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('a').click(function () {
alert("you clicked me!");


This doesn't work.  Notice I removed the second <script> tag from the head

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="serve

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Need Syntax To Make Results of LINQ Union Return Non-Generic Type



I have the below SQL which works just fine:

SELECT     Message, CreateDate, AccountId, AlertTypeId
FROM       dbo.Alerts
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT Status, CreateDate, AccountId,
                          (SELECT     10 AS Expr1) AS AlertTypeId
FROM         dbo.StatusUpdates
WHERE AccountId = PassedInParameter

I have been going about trying to convert the above into a LINQ method and am having problems with return types.
As the above SQL illustrates, I am querying two distinct LINQ tables - Alerts and StatusUpdates -
and then attempting to perform a Union on them. In order to do the union in LINQ, I have to have agreeing types. So, I
am using "var" to make the results of "alerts" and "updates" generic before the union.  

public IList GetStatusUpdatesAsAlertsByAccountId<T>(Int32 accountId)
            using (WorkbookDataContext dc = _conn.GetCont

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

The code behind is extending this HomePage class, which is in turn an extenstion of another class University.Framework.UI.Page, which extends the System.Web.UI.Page class.

'element.className' is null or not an object



I just downloaded the project, compiled it and ran it right out of the box and when I put the mouse pointer over or remove the mouse pointer from either MenuItem in the menu demo, I generate this error:

'element.className' is null or not an object

It points to this javascript method:

updateClassName: function(operation, element, name, value) {
        this[operation + 'String'](
                function() {
                    return element.className;
                function(newValue) {
                    element.className = newValue;

Modify Menu adapter to show selected


Hey, I need some help modifying the menu adapter code to give child <ul> elements a class value indicating that the parent is selected. It should render like this:


< ul class="AspNet-Menu">
	< li class="AspNet-Menu-WithChildren  AspNet-Menu-ChildSelected">
		< a href="/rockit/admin/Default.aspx" class="AspNet-Menu-Link  AspNet-Menu-ChildSelected">
		< span>Mypage< /span>< /a>
			< ul class="AspNet-Sub AspNet-Sub-Selected">
				< li class="AspNet-Menu-Leaf  AspNet-Menu-Selected">
					< a href="/rockit/admin/Default2.aspx" class="AspNet-Menu-Link  AspNet-Menu-Selected">
					< span>Test< /span>< /a>
				< /li>
				< li class="AspNet-Menu-Leaf">
					< a href="/rockit/Default3.aspx" class="AspN

Empty template support for GridView


Just add the following to support the empty text in the GridView.


protected override void RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter writer)
	if (Extender.AdapterEnabled)
		GridView gridView = Control as GridView;
		if (gridView != null)
			if ((gridView.Rows.Count == 0) && !String.IsNullOrEmpty(gridView.EmptyDataText))
				writer.WriteAttribute("class", "AspNet-GridView-Empty");
