Detailed documentation for toolbox objects

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have been developing application in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express using ASP.Net and Visual Basic.  My problem is finding documentation for each of the various toolbox "Standard" objects and the "properties" for these objects.   I have manuals that cover some of the more commonly objects  but I am hoping that somewhere there is a manual or website(s) that would provide detailed information on all (or most all) of these objects.   Does anyone know of a manual or website that provides this information.

C# and XML Source Code Documentation

Through many years of enterprise level software development and consulting, I became critically aware of the importance of good source code documentation, and several years ago when I began working with the first release of Visual Studio .NET beta 1 and found C# provided built-in support for inline XML code documentation, I was thrilled.

Need help with objects and arrays


I have an objuct that I declared like this:

    Class DailyStats
        Dim _day As String
        Dim _hour As String
        Dim _impressions As String
        Dim _clicks As String
        Property Day() As String
                Return _day
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As String)
                _day = value
            End Set
        End Property
        Property Hour() As String
                Return _hour

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Html.PageLink not resolving ... any documentation?


Downloaded the code from here:


The Register.cshtml is having commented code which enables sending email to users for email verification.

This is the link not getting resolved properly in the email:

var confirmationLink = Html.PageLink("~\\Account\\Confirm", "click to Ccnfirm your Account.", new {token = token});

Mail.Send(email, "Confirm Your Security Demo Account", confirmationLink.ToString());

It is opening something like this: http://confirm/?token=tR9nWxnBPN34Kag

Note: I get the email but the link is not resolved properly.

Just for workaround and testing I did this and it worked:

var confirmationLink = "<a href='http://localhost:50620/Account/Confirm.cshtml?token=" + token.ToString() +"'> Please Confirm Your Account </a>";

If anyone can share some light on this Html.PageLink method and why is it not working?<

Class which contains an array of objects of type "Class2"



1  Partial Class _Default
2  Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

3 Public Function Ohjoy(ByVal X As Integer) As Integer
4 Dim theClass As New Class1 '= New Class1()
5    theClass.ReSize(0)
6    theClass.myBaby(0).GetName(0) = "Hello" 'Property Chars is read only'
7    Return 1
8 End Function
I have a first class named "Class1". I have a second class named "Class2" Class2, is a member of class 1,
and is implemented as an array of objects of type Class 2.

If I try and call the Accessor GetName() my hard coded value "Hello" in my accessor is not returned? Only
an alpha character like "T"

Also if I try and assigne a value using the setter GetName() it does not work, and the compiler gives me
an error message "property Chars is ReadOnly? Does anyone know what is wrong in my code? Line 6 above


Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
End Sub
End Class

Public Class Class1
    Dim bs As Integer
    Public myBaby() As Class2
    Public myB As Class2
    Public Function ReSize(By
