VS2008 - please fix automatic quote inserting finally

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I quickly searched Connect and didn't find any related complaints or bug reports but for me, it is a real pain to edit HTML code by hand inside Visual Studio. The main reason is that the source editor almost always inserts (or omits) quotes when they should be omitted (or inserted). Here is how it usually goes: head down, typing <p class="red">, head up - the editor is displaying <p class=""red"">! Fix it. Head down, typing.... it did it again! So I turn off "Insert attribute value quotes when typing", type in runat=, press Enter to select server from IntelliSense's drop-down and oops - the quotes are not there! I know that I can learn what to expect when this setting is on or off but there are plenty of editors (mostly from Java world) that "just work". Take Eclipse, for example: I type in <p class= and the editor inserts two quotes automatically. If I start writing some letters, it will be just fine but if I press quote because my head is down and I didn't notice that the IDE was too clever, Eclipse will simply ignore my key stroke. Then, when my cursor is here: <p class="myClass|" and I type quote, again, it will have the same effect as pressing right arrow on my keyboard because Eclipse recognizes that the quote is already there. Very simple but very helpful. Please implement this f

Inserting new row in GridView in ASP.NET 2.0

The GridView was not designed to insert new rows, but there is a way to accomplish this with very little code. This article shows how to do that. The GridView was not designed to insert new rows, but there is a way to accomplish this with very little code.

Automatic vs Explicit Properties

If the reason that motivated the change from automatically implemented property to explicitly implemented property was to change the semantics of the property then you should evaluate whether the desired semantics when accessing the property from within the class are identical to or different from the desired semantics when accessing the property from outside the class.

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

Inserting rows via stored procedure and under certain conditions


I'm using Dynamic Data with Entity Framework in VS2010.

Let's say my table has these fields:

PersonID (FK)
LocationID (FK)

Hypothetical scenario (it's easier for me to explain this way, so just bear with me for now)... But let's say each row in the table represents "how many items were sold by such-and-such employee at such-and-such location," where location and person are foreign keys which are referencing other tables.  Basically, there should be no more than a ONE row which has a particular combination of Person and Location.  Makes sense?

So, when inserting new rows using my Dynamic Data app, the insert form displays editable fields for Person (dropdown), Location (dropdown), and Items Sold (textbox).  How do I prevent users from inserting another row into the table containing an already-existing combination of Person and Location?   How do I displaying useful feedback to them in the event that they DO attempt to do this?

I have several thoughts about this, but since I'm new to Dynamic Data, I'm not sure which way to go.  For example:

Option 1:  Use "cascading dropdowns" approach in the insert form and only pull in the "allowed" combinations of the two dropd

LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out. 



    protected void enterBTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //make new data context

        SHCDataContext insNewAll = new SHCDataContext();
        //LINQ to check if customer exists in database
        var checkExisting = from c in insNewAll.Customers
                            where c.custLastName.Contains(custLastNameTB.Text.ToString())
                            select c.custLastName;
        //make list to store values

inserting from gridview footer


I have been following the tutorials from Scott Mitchell on this site.  I am trying to insert a new record from the gridview footer.  I have my BLL set up as a .cs class in the App Code folder.  When I fill in the fields and click add, nothing happens.  The page refreshes and the text boxes empty, but nothing is added to the database.  The edit and delete functions work fine.  Have I put something in the wrong spot?


I have the rowcommand and the datasource_inserting on the code page as below.

protected void Oems_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    // Insert data if the CommandName == "Insert" 
    // and the validation controls indicate valid data...
    if (e.CommandName == "Insert" && Page.IsValid)
        // TODO: Insert new record...

protected void OemsDataSource1_Inserting
(object sender, ObjectDataSourceMethodEventArgs e)
    // Programmatically reference Web controls in the inserting interface...
    TextBox txtOem = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txtOem");
    TextBox txtOemStreet = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txtOemStreet");
    TextBox txtOemCity = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txtOemCity");

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.

Garbage Collection-Part 2: Automatic Memory Management in the Microsoft .NET Framework


The first part of this two-part article explained how the garbage collection algorithm works, how resources can clean up properly when the garbage collector decides to free a resource's memory, and how to force an object to clean up when it is freed. The conclusion of this series explains strong and weak object references that help to manage memory for large objects, as well as object generations and how they improve performance. In addition, the use of methods and properties for controlling garbage collection, resources for monitoring collection performance, and garbage collection for multithreaded applications are covered.

Garbage Collection: Automatic Memory Management in the Microsoft .NET Framework


Garbage collection in the Microsoft .NET common language runtime environment completely absolves the developer from tracking memory usage and knowing when to free memory. However, you'll want to understand how it works. Part 1 of this two-part article on .NET garbage collection explains how resources are allocated and managed, then gives a detailed step-by-step description of how the garbage collection algorithm works. Also discussed are the way resources can clean up properly when the garbage collector decides to free a resource's memory and how to force an object to clean up when it is freed.
