Writing a Telephone Book / Corporate Phone Directory...

Hey everyone, I'm attempting to write one aspx page (vb.net back end) that pulls the following using an LDAP query from my active directory and dumps it into either a datagrid or a gridview control.  The fields I want to show from Active directory are;  1. Last Name 2. First Name 3. Office 4. Email 5. Telephone number (primary) 6. Mobile  7. Title 8. Department 9. Company ---- I only want to show the "active" users and then again, dump the results in a dataset and populate a datagrid / gridview control.  Does anyone have any sample code of this or can walk me through on how to do this - thanks in advance... Best regards, Ryan  

Book review: Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture

   Lately I finished reading the famous patterns book by Martin Fowler - Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. This book introduces and describes design patterns you will usually see when building enterprise applications. There are also examples for patterns and although they are simple and primitive they give you the idea how to implement or use specific patterns. If you are working on enterprise applications every day you will find this book very useful and I'm sure you will use it as manual. Yes, you can read this book as any other book and you can also use it as manual. In the end of this review you can find table of patterns with links to short introduction for each pattern. Are these patterns platform specific somehow? No, they are not. It doesn't matter what platform or language you are using. Of course, you must know your platform well because some of problems solved in this book maybe also already solved on platform you are working on. Don't try to push all available patterns to your application - use patterns of this book when you face problems that your tools doesn't solve or that your tools solve poorly. Of course, you can consult with this book if you are not sure how to implement one or another pattern in your application. My suggestion is to read this book with two other books (of course, there are more recommended books but le

101 question - New to VS 2010, create connection string to perform test with Oreilly txt book

Hello, I have installed VS 2010 Ultimate and it came with SQL 2008.  I am trying to figure out what version it is and also how to create a connection in place to keep using the Oreilly examples to hopefully learn how to develop in C#.  I have been learning but it is getting more difficult.   I try to follow the steps but it just does not make sense.  If anyone could provide some easy steps to check version and connection method to sql using 2010, I would be grateful. I did see a post for sql management(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b&displaylang=en).  I am going to download to hopefully be able to view the database.  We have sql server 2008 at work and I have used the studio management for sql to run queries and would like to do the same with the version that was installed with the installation of 2010 ultimate.Hopefully I can get the connection to the database so I can start learning how to build a dictionary and list for some queries.  My goal is to create a aspx file that will show entries in a database we have at work.  Trying to take baby steps.Thanks for the help.

NerdDinner mvc2 EDMX doesnt generate like Hanselman's book (vb.net)


i was following the nerd dinner book for mvc2 and i cant seem to see how Hanselman got linqs to show up... when i run the ado.net data model, it doesnt look remote ly close to what handelman is producing... is he using a special script to generate this? or does entity model not really work as well with vb.net?

I dont seem to get anything with InsertOrSubmit, DeleteAllOnSubmit, DeleteOnSubmit... This is what i end up getting.

Silverlight book


I’m new to silverlight, but I would like to learn how to make very nice looking charts. Including zoom functionality, real-time updates, multiple indicators / pricing within in chart, 2d, 3d, multi layer (if I click in something in the chart, I want to open another chart either within the chart or as a replacement of the charts) etc. etc. What book can you recommend me? I took a look at Pro silverlight 4 in c# (http://www.apress.com/book/view/1430229799), but I got the impression that it was more meant to be for browser functionality and I want silverlight within my c# application.
