Sending a Tweet from VB.NET to Twitter

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Well, it used to be pretty simple to send a Tweet to twitter from within my vb.net website. Now they have changed the rules using OAuth! I can't seem to find a simple solution to send tweets. All I am really sending are announcements as to what is going on. I need to be able to do it all behind the scenes whenever a new event is entered by the web site user. I Have the consumerKey and the consumerSecret, how do I get the PIN and the  OAuthToken, and the OAuthTokenSecret? Can anyone give me a valid VB Example that I can modify to work on my web site? No dll's just good, simple code. Thanks.

Can animation extender be used to replicate Twitter's smooth-scrolling, latest-tweet control?

I'm not going for the exact same control, but if I can find a smart way to automatically/smoothly scroll through text from the database on Timer Tick intervals of 5 seconds... then I can use that as a template. My main idea would be to just dynamically create panels with the text inside of them, then dispose of them when they come towards the bottom of the list... but 3 things stop me 1) it would be a lot of work, 2) when the last panel cycles to the bottom of the display area then how do I make it smoothly disappear? 3) What would I use for the display spot?- a Panel won't work because if its contents exceed the set height, it either just expands to fit it or adds scroll bars. I basically want it to have slideshow functionallity how the images smoothly scroll every few seconds (without the scroll bar), and instead of images I want to use text. Any ideas?

Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

Following this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/9-adding-email-to-your-website

Under "Sending a File Using Email" section what exactly is the code trying to do.

1: The SendFile.cshtml does not have any option to select file.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.

DIME: Sending Files, Attachments, and SOAP Messages Via Direct Internet Message Encapsulation


Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a new specification for sending and receiving SOAP messages along with additional attachments, like binary files, XML fragments, and even other SOAP messages, using standard transport protocols like HTTP. In this article, the author explains what DIME is and how it differs from MIME encapsulation. A detailed description of the message format and how it is parsed, as well as working with SOAP and extending it with WSDL, is also included.

Where can I find the code of the Twitter or Facebook or WebGrid helpers?


Just in general, where can I find the code to take a look at and learn from them? Or at least look at the functions available to me as I do get the feeling that the insufficient documentation at the moment reveals all.
