ASP.NET newbie - any good open source control packs?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

As an ASP.NET newbie I'm trying to get an initial project going without laying out huge sums for advanced visual components. Can anybody recommend any good open source control libraries for ASP.NET?   Something that includes a table, tree, calendar, and the usual mix of input/display controls.

How to install the Css Friendly Control Adapter Source Code


Hi guys really new to ASP.NET I was trying to install the CSS Friendly control adapter but for some reason the instructions on the website seems outdated. I downloaded all the files (Source Code, DLL, Browser) I believe I need to add the DLL file to my website's Bin folder and the Browser file to the APP_Browsers folder is this correct? After I place this files how to I get it working? what do I have to do?

Also if I want to create a new DLL file from the Source code how do I do these? I opened the web-site with Visual Studio 2008 and I can see all the files in the solution explorer? But how do I compile this to a DLL file? I tried doing a build solution but all I get is an .sln file???

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

Best Practices for extending an Open Source project

I am beginning an implementation and customization of an open source e-commerce application (nopCommerce).  I'm looking for any for any suggestions and / or recommendations to annotate or document any source code changes I would make in order to allow for the easiest integration of new versions of the application that are released. I do have TFS 2010 implemented but I do not have much experience with the product.  I tried to merge the source of a new release but ran into some difficulty, especially when files were deleted from the project. For much of the project I can copy existing user controls and create custom versions for my use, but there will be some modification of the actual source code required. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Using sproc as data source (newbie).

I've succesfully displayed data from my legacy database using a sproc to implement all the business rules behind the query. Some of the data, though, is based on subqueries and is not in the base table displayed in the default list of tables. For example, order totals, address logic, etc. When I go to edit or display details from a selected record, I receive Invalid Column name errors on the generated fields. Any quick solutions or pointers to examples on how to handle this scenario? Thanks. 

Is RDL an Open Source

Is RDL (the XML representation of Report Structure) an Open Source. Could it be used in a custom reporting software?  Actually we are developing a custom reporting tool right from the scratch using .net. But I would like to borrow the RDL technique used by SSRS as it is flexible. Could it be done without getting into any copyright issues?

How to open XML file from ASP Hyperlink control


How can I open a XML file from the location mentioned in the web.config file using Hyperlink control?

I have an aspx page with hyperlink control and in code behind I do the following:

hypLink.Text = "Transformed XML";
hypLink.NavigateUrl = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["OutputXML"];

Web.config file looks like:

<add key="OutputXML" value="C:\Working\MyTest\XMLTransform\App_Data\Transformed.xml"/>

This code is not working. In IE, it doesn't do anything but in FF, it throws a error box with message that the "FF doesn't know how to open this address..."
