Documentation for CR in VS2008

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I'm pulling my hair out trying to implement reports in my asp.net application.  Why is there no decent books out there on the subject?  I've been trolling the internet for days now can't find anything with substance.  Is there a "Bible" to using cr in vs2008 that I missed?  Even websites with good examples might be helpful.  Please, someone help!  - thanx!

C# and XML Source Code Documentation

Through many years of enterprise level software development and consulting, I became critically aware of the importance of good source code documentation, and several years ago when I began working with the first release of Visual Studio .NET beta 1 and found C# provided built-in support for inline XML code documentation, I was thrilled.

Html.PageLink not resolving ... any documentation?


Downloaded the code from here:


The Register.cshtml is having commented code which enables sending email to users for email verification.

This is the link not getting resolved properly in the email:

var confirmationLink = Html.PageLink("~\\Account\\Confirm", "click to Ccnfirm your Account.", new {token = token});

Mail.Send(email, "Confirm Your Security Demo Account", confirmationLink.ToString());

It is opening something like this: http://confirm/?token=tR9nWxnBPN34Kag

Note: I get the email but the link is not resolved properly.

Just for workaround and testing I did this and it worked:

var confirmationLink = "<a href='http://localhost:50620/Account/Confirm.cshtml?token=" + token.ToString() +"'> Please Confirm Your Account </a>";

If anyone can share some light on this Html.PageLink method and why is it not working?<

web deployment project (WS_deploy) on VS2008


I am building a asp.net webservice in VS2008 and the web service compiles and debug fine. The project should be using : Net 3,5

 I have

  1. VS2005 and VS208 installed
  2. .Net 1.1 - 3.5
  3. WebDeploymentSetup for VS2008 (and most likely a version for VS2005 as well)

But when I add a web deployment project the fun stops. The .WS_deploy project will not compile and I cannot find any precompiled output.

C#: XML Comments Let You Build Documentation Directly From Your Visual Studio .NET Source Files


C# allows developers to embed XML comments into their source files-a useful facility, especially when more than one programmer is working on the same code. The C# parser can expand these XML tags to provide additional information and export them to an external document for further processing. This article shows how to use XML comments and explains the relevant tags. The author demonstrates how to set up your project to export your XML comments into convenient documentation for the benefit of other developers. He also shows how to use comments to generate help files.

Detailed documentation for toolbox objects


I have been developing application in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express using ASP.Net and Visual Basic.  My problem is finding documentation for each of the various toolbox "Standard" objects and the "properties" for these objects.   I have manuals that cover some of the more commonly objects  but I am hoping that somewhere there is a manual or website(s) that would provide detailed information on all (or most all) of these objects.   Does anyone know of a manual or website that provides this information.




[VS2008] Designer's display problem

Hello, I created a solution with multi-project and i've recently added some resources files to lacalized my application and of course my XAML files too. I used the "How To:" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/dd882554(v=VS.95).asp I inserted the class LocalizedString in one off my project that I use as library for common actions. But since, my designer is not loading properly because it can't find this class while I precised the good assembly and that the application is running properly with resources applied. It's then not handy to develop an HMI... If anybody has an idea about this trouble... Of course I tried dozens of times to clear the projects and regenerate without success. Thank you for your help !

VS2010: Upgrading projects from VS2008

I just upgraded my VS2008 solution to VS2010 and have run into a problem. I have a .NET C# application that references a managed C++ DLL, which in turn links to a native static library. All this works just fine. However, whenever I attempt to run the C# application, Visual Studio claims that the native static library is out of date and must be recompiled. It does that even after I've just compiled the native library. When allowing VS2010 to build the native project, the only thing it does is this: 1>  LibraryName.vcxproj -> C:\Bleh\Blah\LibraryName.lib Is there a way I can figure out what's causing VS2010 to think the project is out of date?

VS2008 BIDS Report export to Excel not grouping the same as VS2005

I have a report that I created in VS2005 BIDS and got it to export to Excel to group/subtotal the same way it does in the BIDS report window.  Now I have copied the .rdl files to a VS2008 project, open it in VS2008 BIDS, made NO changes to the report format and the exported Excel file is combining what should be the 2nd and 3rd groups into 1 group.  In the BIDS window, the grouping is working correctly.  Does anyone have any ideas what has changed between 2005 & 2008 that may cause this problem?  Thanks in advance.
