Where can I find theme & skin libraries

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 Hi I'm in the process of building a webforms site. In the grand tradition of programmers, I have been looking for collections of skins/themes/css for asp.net controls to avoid the work of building them myself. Especially since I'm graphically challenged. I've found numerous sites with templates for drupal, DNN, etc but the only places I've found asp.net control themes/skin/css collections is within commercial component libs that cost more than i'm able to afford. The absence of these collections is also making me question how I'm building the site since I assume the "theme" sites would be providing these collections if there was a demand. Can anyone point me to where I can find inexpensive or free asp.net theme/skin collections or give me some pointers about how to build a site without requiring a bunch of work to create them from scratch. Thanks in advance!

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

SharePoint Tutorial - Libraries

A library is a feature in SharePoint that stores files (documents). Think of a library as a folder on your file system. For example, a library can be created to store resumes in the human resources team site. A library is usually created for a specific type of file. Libraries can contain metadata to describe the particular file in more detail and to make it easier to find.

Using loginName to find ADInfo from an outside class



I wrote a class to pull adinfo and for the life of me I can't seem to figure

out why it says "Invalid Login Name" no matter what I type in. If I leave

it blank it seems to work properly but it doesn't seem to be actually searching

the AD. I'll drop the whole class here, it's being initiated by a button click

on an outside form.

LDAP - Can't find server


Hey people,

I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.

I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)

I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...

If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.

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=
