Can I make member selection filters dynamic?

Question regarding member selection filters in Dashboard Designer (PPS 2010): When selecting the filter members, is there any way to make them dynamic? I.e. when a new member is added (e.g. a new year when we enter one), can it be included without having to manually add them in the filter? Thanks.

passing data from a DropDownListFor to Action method in MVC3 (Razor)


I have two questions regarding passing the selection of a dropdownlist to an action method in an MVC controller:


1. What are the options for actually passing the selection back to the action method as a parameter?  The only thing I've been able to get to work is to name the parameter and the select list the same.  For example, my action method looks like:

        public ActionResult Example(int? FeatureId)

// do something with FeatureId
            return View(someobject);

and the static HTML list looks like:


<select name="featureId1">

2.  How can I use an extension method to name the select list appropriately?  I've been trying to do it with the htmlAttributes method but I find that this only works on the id, not the name.  E.g.:



@Html.DropDownListFor(x => x.objects, new SelectList(Model.objects, "FeatureId", "FeatureName"), new { @id = "FeatureId", @name = "FeatureId" })

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

and the runti

Beginner: this doesn't make sense to me


Do you need and "empty" script tag in the head to run scripts that are in the body?  Also, can you run JQuery scripts if they're in the <head> tag?  The first sample only works if the JQuery script is in the form (and body) tag, not in the head - even if I add $(document).ready(function() { });

This works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<a href="">Here is a link</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('a').click(function () {
alert("you clicked me!");


This doesn't work.  Notice I removed the second <script> tag from the head

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="serve

Customizing the UI around the Filters


I have started working on a new project and thought it would be a great idea to dig into the latest version of the Dynamic Data framework that shipped with VS2010.  For the most part, I am impressed, it seems to be pretty easy to extend and create a rich and flexibile UI -- at least that is what I thought until I got to working on a better layout for the filters.

The situation is this:

I have a table with 25 columns and I need to display around 10 different filters (basically and interactive report) -- the filters are of various types.

The problem:

How in the world do I custom the UI layout of the filters.  It seems that with the latest QueryFilterRepeater control we have been left with almost nothing to work with (outside of turning filters on/off and setting the FilterUIHint).  What if I wanted to wrap all of the filters in an expand/collapse region and then inside of that have then sitting in a table of no more than 4 columns (so with 10 filters I wold have 3 rows). 

I have tried extending the QueryFilterRepeater but it seems like there is nothing in that class that we can work with (the data binding events are not even used).

Am I missing something, or am I just out of luck right now?

Customising filters in .NET 4


I have a .NET 3.5 Dynamic Data site that I am now overhauling to make it work under .NET 4.  I have managed most of it now (painfully!) but am struggling to get my old custom filters to work.

Under .NET 3.5, the default filter mark-up looked like this:

<asp:FilterRepeater ID="FilterRepeater" runat="server">
        <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DisplayName") %>' AssociatedControlID="DynamicFilter$DropDownList1" />
        <asp:DynamicFilter runat="server" ID="DynamicFilter" OnSelectedIndexChanged="OnFilterSelectedIndexChanged" />
    <FooterTemplate><br /><br /></FooterTemplate>
This code shows all possible filters above the table; i.e., every column in the table containing a foreign key to another table.  I didn't want to see them all, just the one I was interested in, so previously I had this mark-up in my ListDetails.aspx file:

<asp:Label runat="server" Text="Panel" AssociatedControlID="DynamicFilterPanel$DropDownList1" style="padding-left: 20px;" />
<asp:DynamicFilter runat="server" ID="

Need Syntax To Make Results of LINQ Union Return Non-Generic Type



I have the below SQL which works just fine:

SELECT     Message, CreateDate, AccountId, AlertTypeId
FROM       dbo.Alerts
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT Status, CreateDate, AccountId,
                          (SELECT     10 AS Expr1) AS AlertTypeId
FROM         dbo.StatusUpdates
WHERE AccountId = PassedInParameter

I have been going about trying to convert the above into a LINQ method and am having problems with return types.
As the above SQL illustrates, I am querying two distinct LINQ tables - Alerts and StatusUpdates -
and then attempting to perform a Union on them. In order to do the union in LINQ, I have to have agreeing types. So, I
am using "var" to make the results of "alerts" and "updates" generic before the union.  

public IList GetStatusUpdatesAsAlertsByAccountId<T>(Int32 accountId)
            using (WorkbookDataContext dc = _conn.GetCont
