Need help on a simple design approach

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi All,

I have the following problem: I need to draw a cube on a webform, using asp.net 4.0, similar to a rubik's cube in appearance only. The cube needs to be 3 dimensional, and if the user clicks on a certain part of the cube (quadrant) it needs to be able to change color and redirect to another webform - that is all, no solving or rotating of the cube is included. As you know, the rubik's cube has 9 squares/quadrants/ on each side, 3 sides for a 3 D objects making up for 27 squares...

So my question is do you have to go down to basic math and use coordinates to draw each of the 27 quadrants of the cube, change the backcolor and add an onclick event to each one to redirect or is there a more polished solution via webforms or silverlight or other technology out there? Please share if you have had a similar problem.

best approach to a simple problem.

let me preface this with saying, i dont really know css or javascript or even xml really. i know enough to do what i need to, i dont know best practices, i can just get it done, so im aksing this to make sure the way i plan on doing this is a good way. just need to be pushed in the right direction. so im looking to make a simple webpage (client side only) that allows a user to pick colors for a IDE (think Visual Studio) so what i want to do is show a segment of code that shows something of all color types.. so think of a code segment like this response.write "hello world" there could be 4 different colors in this... the object, response, the period (it has a name, i forget it), the member, write, and a type, string.. so what im thinking is that there is some text on the page and a drop down that lets you pick the type to color, and then the color... so im thinking to use div tags to identify each type <div id=object>response</div><div id=period>.</div> etc etc and then do an on change for the color drop down to update the colors.. so i can do that, but the question is, im wanting to use CSS/XML so that way, if i get a couple of themes, i can then add a theme drop down to show some premade setups... default.xml <options> <object>red</object> <period>black</object>

Simple question but very new to Replication - Design question


Hi All,


I have a requirement of desiging a good system.


I have 5-6 servers. and i want to keep 2 servers up to date.

Server List

1) Read

2) Write

3) Backup

4) Staging


Read connects to Application.

Application is getting data from Read Server,. but Writing data to Write server.

Write server is being written by Application and it writes and keep the Read Server upto date.


Backup server takes backup of Read, Write Servers.

Also, from Staging server, everything should be written to write Server. and then write server makes Read Server upto date.


SQL Server 2008 will be used in this design.


Please help. I'm very very new to admin advanced side.


Thanks in Advance.

odd approach to dynamicdata and poor page/code design


I have a gridview (that sits above a goup of formview usercontrols on a page) whose datasource returns a list of table names (10 or so, datakeys are id and tablename) and some other values from a table and populates the gridview with a select column and a few other details. 
The formview usercontrol has a property that sets the datasourceid and these are done on the apsx. On select in the gridview, the page posts back and tells the appropriate formview usercontrol, based on a giant switch statement, to databind and turn visible.

In the page_init, all formview usercontrols have their formviews enabledynamicdata for the appropriate table name.

All formviews start in edit mode (per client).  The switch will also takes the id from the gridview select and loads a small list of links ot the right of the visible formview that point to other tables with details about the table displayed in the formview.  These links pass a querystring paramater of another table name to a popup that runs a switch on page init, using the table name to dictate the datasource for a single formview (with 10 or so LinqDataSources on the aspx), binds and opens in edit mode.  Seting this on init allows the formview to properly edit, etc.

Here is how a user sees it.  Homepage, choose an "area"  This takes you to a page that loads a gridv

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

SDLC Approach or Software Development Life Cycle

SDLC process stats from conception to completion of any software project. According to this approach the software development team is responsible for the whole project development life cycle. After doing SRS and requirements analysis; developers follow different models of Software development Life Cycle (SDLC) available, while the most common model is SDLC waterfall model. They divide project in different stages & phases and the output of each stage or phase becomes the input for next stage.

Solidify Your C# Application Architecture with Design Patterns

design pattern can solve many problems by providing a framework for building an application. Design patterns, which make the design process cleaner and more efficient, are especially well-suited for use in C# development because it is an object-oriented language. Existing design patterns make good templates for your objects, allowing you to build software faster. This article describes several popular design patterns you can use in your own applications, including the singleton, the decorator, the composite, and the state classes, which can improve the extensibility of your applications and the reuse of your objects.

What Are Design Patterns and Do I Need Them?

Software professionals may be familiar with the term "Design Patterns," but many have no idea of where they come from and what they truly are. Consequently, some do not see the value and benefits design patterns bring to the software development process, especially in the areas of maintenance and code reuse.

Design Patterns for .NET

It is not the intent of the Design Pattern Series to focus on providing a theoretical knowledge dump of all there is to know about design patterns. There are many books that do that already. Instead, this series will focus on providing lots of practical examples. However, there will be some theory to help address important points concerning design patterns. I use the theory of design patterns mostly as a guide and instead make references to good design pattern books for more detail explanation.

Singleton Design Pattern in Asp.net using C#

When we want to make a only one instance of a class and also making sure that there is a global access point to that object then the design pattern we user is called Singleton. The pattern ensures that the class is instantiated only once and that all requests are directed to that one and only object.
