Trouble With Team Foundation Server/Visual Studio 2010

Hi At work we are 2 guys on the same project. We both program in visual studio 2010. The other guy complains that he don't see my changes. I know this dude have already executed "Get Latest Version", despite that he don't get my changes. Some more information that may be relevant:Each time I've done some changes to the source code on my local computer, when I run the code breakpoints are not triggered. I get a message saying something about mismatch between different version of the source (or something like that, weeks sinece I saw that message). It's a while since I saw that message becasue I've found a work-around: Each time I've done changes tothe source code I do this:- Clean Solution- Rebuild (Release)- Rebuild (Debug) When I've done that I can see my own changes.. But the other guy have trouble with seeing my changes. I'm not sure how to fix it so that he see my changes. I checkin regulary so my changes should be available on the Team Foundation Server. Any help on this would be very helpful

Problem installing SQL 2008 Tools with Visual Studio 2008 Team System Suite

I'm setting-up my development environment on a new laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I installed Visual Studio Team System (MSDN disk 4405)  and then VS 2008 SP1. These installed without error.

Next I installed SQL Express 2008, but had a problem with running the standard install from www.microsoft.com/express/sql/download - message stating that SQL 2008 with Tools was incompatable with SQL 2005 (which was installed as part of the VSTS 2008 install - instance SQLEXPRESS). Therefore, I used the custom install link on this webpage to install SQL Express 2008 with SP1 - X64. I selected the 'New Standalone Instal or Add Features' and it completed without error - instance MSSQLSERVER2008. I selected the install with SP1 because this seemed to be required for a PC with VS 2008 installed (see other threads), hoping that it would be possible to install the tools later. However, when I came to install the SQL Express 2008 Tools (custom install page install SQL Express 2008 with Tools) I hit the following problems:

1. I got message stating that there was a compatability issue which required me to run SQL 2008 SP1 after the install - funny, I had just installed SQL 2008 SP1!

Ignoring the message, I proceeded with the install sel

SQL Compact Edition 3.5 and Visual Studio 2005, CE 2003 se, Windows Mobil 5.0




my big question is :

Is it possible to use SQL Compact Edition 3.5 with Visual Studio 2005 ?


We have one big .Net CF application which need to run on CE 2003 SE and Windows Mobil 5.0. It would be great if we only need one Package (CAB) for both types of devices.

Any hacks to get SQL Compact Edition 3.5 working with Visual Studio 2005 are welcome.







Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.


I have found my

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
