jquery jstree and dynatree parent node don't get selected(asp.net mvc)


I have used jquery jstree and dynatree persistance example using check boxes and found the same logic The thing is that the if for example there is a parent and 4 child. a) i select all the 4 child (parent get auto selected) the 4 child and the parent node id get posted to the controller. b) But if i select less then 4 children (parent get auto selected) only child node ids get posted to the controller. Is there any way even if i select less then 4 children all my selected nodes included the parent get posted to the controller?

Trouble with codedom serialization for CollectionEditor of UserControl or Parent type.



I'm developing a simple user conrol named Taskbar. It contains a property of TabArray type which inherits ArrayList. This property has an attached attribute DesignerSerializationVisibility which forces the VS to serialize this property as a Content. I also provide a special Editor for this TabArray.


If the Tab class is a simple class then all is Ok. But if it is a subclass of UserControl or Panel then the VS serializes it wrong for some reason. What do I mean exactly is missing line this.taskbar1.Tabs.Add(this.tab1). So the instance of Tab is not added to the Tabs collection.


1. What is the reason of this behavior?

2. How can I solve this problem?


Thanks in advance. And sorry for my broken English.

GridView Parent Child View with JQuery Effects

I was just checked how to add some more cool effects to the GridView control using JQuery. In this post I will display parent-child data in the GridView control with some help of the wonderful JQuery library.

Let's first populate the GridView control.

Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control. But now I have issue with ViewState of inner controls of my control. The following samle illustrates the issue: I defined two asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" and ID="ddl2" One of them is inside of my control and other is outside. When posback is occurred asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1 loses state and becomes empty. How to say ASP.net to store state of inner controls defined by this way?


<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="MyControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="DynamicControls.Controls.MyControl" %>

<div class="box">
    <div class="Header-Left">
        <div class="Header-Right">
            My Control
    <div class="Content">
        <asp:PlaceHolder ID="contentPlace" runat="Server" />

Display homepage node along with child nodes


If the first Sitemap node is your homepage/default and all other nodes are supposed to be children / grandchildren of the first sitemap node in a web.sitemap, how do I set up my web.sitemap to enable me to display my cssFriendlyMenu with the homepage node along with the nodes that are 1 level down from it at the same time as in :

Home   Products   Services   About us


...or is it not possible to have the first sitemap node displayed along with the nodes that are 1 level down from it?  Do I need to have a different starting node rather than my homepage node?

How to keep the hover for Parent menu and set the selected menu item css for child menu item?



I'm using cssfriendly control adapter for menu. My asp.net menu control's datasource is a sitemap file I'm using which contains all the urls.

I have the following questions:

  1. Is there a way to keep the parent menu item hovered while hovering over the respective child menu items?
  2. Is there a way to keep the child menu item selected? I am able to set the css for the parent menu, however I was wondering if the same is possible with the child items.

Please help! Smile

Class To Contract: Enrich Your XML Serialization With Schema Providers In The .NET Framework


The Microsoft .NET Framework 1.x provided minimal options for mapping classes to schemas and serializing objects to XML documents, making this sort of mapping quite a challenge. The .NET Framework 2.0 changes all this with Schema providers and the IXmlSerializable interface.

Advanced Serialization: Format Your Way to Success with the .NET Framework Versions 1.1 and 2.0


While .NET offers adequate support for the simple serialization cases, issues arise when you're attempting to support delegates and subscribers, versioning, and class hierarchies. . In addition, the introduction of generics in The .NET Framework breaks new ground in the complexity of the serialization task and the power of serialization tools. This article discusses these issues and related pitfalls, suggests techniques and workarounds that address them, and recommends when and how to best use the new serialization abilities.

Cutting Edge: Binary Serialization of DataSets


The ADO. NET DataSet object plays an essential role in most of today's distributed, multitiered applications. Instances of the DataSet class are used to move data across the tiers and to exchange data with external services.

Cutting Edge: Binary Serialization of ADO.NET Objects


One of the key elements that makes ADO. NET superior to ADO is the level of integration with XML. In ADO, XML is just an I/O format. In addition, the ADO XML format is totally inflexible and doesn't allow any type of customization.

.NET Column: Run-time Serialization, Part 3


This is the third part of my three-part series on serialization. In part one, I showed how to serialize and deserialize objects. I also showed how to define types that allow instances of themselves to be serialized.
