FORMAL REQUEST TO THE MICROSOFT DYNAMIC DATA TEAM

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT? HOW CAN I IMPLEMENT THE SAME LOGIC AMONG THE CONTROLS OF MY DETAILS PAGE? BUT I DO WANT TO HAVE ACCESS AND PASS DATA FOR SPECIFIC CONTROLS:DROPDOWNLISTS (mostly).

I have found my solution but

Why I won't be using Dynamic Data any more - please read this Microsoft!

  

Well, having spent a few weeks banging my head against a brick wall trying to learn Dynamic Data, I'm giving up. It looks like a great idea, but is fundamentally flawed in at least two respects...

1) The documentation and code samples are pitiful. As has been discussed several times before in this forum, it's almost impossible to learn the technology when the few resources that exist are woefully out of date, and hopelessly inadequate. Sure, you can get a basic DD site up and running quickly, but once you want to start cusotmising - which is essental if you're going to use this for real - you run into problems that just aren't covered anywhere.

I know someone is going to point me to the DD pages on MSDN, but to be blunt, they're no use for learnign anything more than the very basics. MSDN is a great reference resource, but that's only good when you know what you're looking for. It's no use for learning from the ground up. The videos on the www.asp.net site give you a start, but as soon as you want to do anything yourself, you run into problems that just aren't covered in the videos. Some things, like custom filters, just aren't mentioned at all, so how you're supposed to find out how to write your own is beyond me.

The only resource for help is this forum, but as there only seem to be two people here who act

Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

  
At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

  
The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

  
I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Routing in dynamic data applications

  

Im using ASP.Net 4. I tried to modified the code according to following video tutorial. http://www.asp.net/aspnet-in-net-35-sp1/videos/how-to-enable-table-specific-routing-in-dynamic-data-applications

But Product page directs only to ListDetails.aspx page.


This is my code :

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Routing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.DynamicData" %>

<script RunAt="server">
    private static MetaModel s_defaultModel = new MetaModel();
    public static MetaModel DefaultModel {
        get {
            return s_defaultModel;
        }
    }

    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes) {
      


        DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(NorthwindDataContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });

       

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4

  

Ref.http://aspnet.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Dynamic%20Data&referringTitle=Home&ProjectName=aspnet

Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :

 

  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D

How to sell Dynamic Data to the bosses

  

I have a project which has gone from Excel report to a SharePoint Custom List and now they have tried to make it an application growing legs with additional list hinging off it and no real way to clean up data from one when it deleted from another etc..(unless we add handlers etc which we don't want to do).


It was envisiaged as a simple one page list to generate some reports off of but it more a data driven application they want now.


I am looking into a way after stating this to my boss and am intrested in the quickest most flexible way to achieve this and to sell it to him.

I am more a .net person but also know plsql and most of the team I work with are Oracle specialists.

We currently have at are disposile .net, php and oracle products (portal, plsql, forms and oracle application express.)

We are at a transition stage trying to move away from Oracle Forms and I believe that .net is a better fit that php for production and readability of code.


So I am considering placing Dynamic data on the table for this project as it all data driven with data being inputed and manipulated and then reports being generated (either via code or we could hitch in a reporting tool like mssql or discover.)  The main issue will be the data will be in Oracle so if Dynamic data can handle this then it be perfect as

Dynamic Data, Domain datasource, Poco and lookups

  

Mr. Edward,

Excuse my question but: it is necessary to involve in our projects something more than just Dynamic Data or should we make use of all other features available in VS2010 (which will make assume taht they had been left out of the Dynamic Data framework) like: wef, poco, azure, wcf, cloud, mvc, silverllight, ajax, odata, agile, workflow, etc.?

Sorry my ignorance, I'm just transcribing names as they come to my mind and of which I don't know anything about

Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET

  

Hi all,

I was rummaging the internet learning aspx and came across the concept of: Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET

It seems great of course. The articles are all early 2003-5 such as

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/MS_Application_Blocks.aspx

So the question is - is this tech still relevant and should I be using it?

Thanks,

Mat

Microsoft Office 2000: Create Dynamic Digital Dashboards Using Office, OLAP, and DHTML

  

Digital Dashboards provide users with one single interface through which they can view information from a variety of sources that have been chosen specifically for that user. In addition, dashboards allow a user to view the information offline, adding portability to the mix. This article discusses options for building a dashboard based on the Microsoft Outlook folder home pages feature. It covers culling the data from disparate sources and storing it using the MSDE. It then discusses the creation of nugget definitions for structuring the data, and providing a synchronization mechanism to update to the data stores.

Collaboration Data Objects: Send Microsoft Exchange Appointment Reminders to Your Pager Using CDO

  

Besides your typical e-mail services, Microsoft Exchange also provides the service infrastructure you need to build extensible knowledge and workflow management systems. Understanding Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) is the key to accessing these Exchange services for your own programs. With CDO you can automate tedious tasks and integrate information such as e-mail, calendars, and contacts with almost any application. This article explains how CDO enables you to access Exchange services, then walks you through a sample application that reads calendar events from an Exchange server and sends pager reminders to your users.
