Extreme ASP.NET: Control Adapters

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

Control adapters let you provide alternate renderings of controls for mobile devices. But they can also be used to completely change the rendering of a con¬trol based on browser type, which can be useful in a number of situations.

are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" being used in ASP.NET 3.5 and above?

  

I am a long time ASP.NET developer, but have just encountered the issue of CSS vs Tables in a deep manner (so far I have just used the built-in controls or just created my own controls).

I bought a great book on this issue, but the book is reffering the ASP.NET 2.0 via VS2005.

I am using ASP.NET 3.5 and above via VS2008/2010.

My first question is: are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" still alive in 2010 or maybe there are a new techniques being used?

My second question is:  are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" being used in ASP.NET 3.5 and above via VS2008/VS2010?

I will appreciate your help and advise.

Regards

Cant find vsi file for CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

Hi guys

This is driving me crazy... I cant find the .vsi file for installing the CSS Friendly Control Adapters Project. Does anyone know where I can get this?

The following link: http://www.asp.net/cssadapters/ only leads to the CodePlex wiki where I can download the dll and a partial solution. Essentially, I'm looking for the source code to implement the Menu adapter.

Any help is much appreciated!


Need help using control adapters at the machine level

  
Hi guys!

Let me explain our situation. I do web development at a university at which we have to meet strict accessibility guidelines. I've specially modified the adapters (as well as extended CompositeDataBoundControlAdapter to include GridView) for use on our site and to use with our global stylesheets as well as compiled the control adapters into a DLL.

The control adapters now all reside in the WebServices.CssFriendlyAdapters DLL.  (For example, WebServices.CssFriendlyAdapters.GridViewAdapter).

Currently, when someone drops an App_Browsers folder in to their site with the adapters specified, the adapters work. However, we'd like to be able to specify this in the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\(version number)\CONFIG\Browsers directory so that the adapters work automatically without anyone having to move anything into App_Browsers for every site. To ensure that someone can still use the "old way" or will not be confused by their controls being adapted, I've written in code that uses the base rendering methods unless xhtmlConformance is set to "Strict" in the site's web.config file.

Anyway, on to the problem. When trying to compile the controlAdapters into the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\(version number)\CONFIG\Browsers directory using aspnet_regbrowsers.exe (see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229858.a

Addressing a specific node with CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

Hello everybody,


I like the concept of the friendly control adapters, but I'm not sure if I can use them for my purpose.
My whole menu basically consist of one image, which itself contains the images for each menu item (is that understandable?).

Each menu item then displays only a certain part of the image.
I do this by shifting the background-position.

#navigation li#home a{
background-position:0px 0px;
}


/* Registration */
#navigation li#registration a:link, li#registration a:visited {
background-position:-106px -34px;
}

#navigation li#registration a:hover, li#registration a:focus {
background-position:-106px 0px;
}

/* Administration */
#navigation li#administration a:link, li#administration a:visited{
background-position:-212px -34px;
}

#navigation li#administration a:hover, li#administration a:focus{
background-position:-212px 0px;

}

I would like to do the same now with CSS Friendly, but I don't see how I can address each individual menu item node.
In static HTML I can give each link an ID (i.e. #administration), but I don't see how to do this with the asp:Menu control and CSS Friendly.

Can someone help me?

Thanks a lot,
Thorsten



Newbie needs help to compile CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

I use VB.NET and create Website Projects (not Web Application Projects). Up to now, I have had little need to understand much about the compilation processes in VS2010.

However, to make use of the CSS Friendly Control Adapters it would appear that I have to compile the source code into a CSSFriendly.dll file. I would appreciate some detailed guidance on how to achieve this.

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

  
In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

  
how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

In-Depth look at the GridView Control

  
In the last article we looked at few of the new controls available in Asp.net 2.0. We also talked about Grid View Control which has replaced the Asp.net 1.1 DataGrid control for good. In this article we will examine more features of the Grid View control. In this article we will see some of the common operations that can be performed using the GridView control. Apart from these operations there are many more functions that can be performed on the control and which we will see in the later articles

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

  
even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

  
A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Using TemplateFields in the GridView Control

  
The GridView is composed of a set of fields that indicate what properties from the DataSource are to be included in the rendered output along with how the data will be displayed. The simplest field type is the BoundField, which displays a data value as text. Other field types display the data using alternate HTML elements. The CheckBoxField, for example, renders as a checkbox whose checked state depends on the value of a specified data field; the ImageField renders an image whose image source is based upon a specified data field. Hyperlinks and buttons whose state depends on an underlying data field value can be rendered using the HyperLinkField and ButtonField field types.
