RE: Advice on Switching from PHP to ASP.NET

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


I've searched this forum and didn't really find the answer I am looking for. I am a bit overwhelmed with all the information in the getting started section. I don't feel I am confused, just wondering if I am on the right track.

I come from a PHP background and making the switch to ASP.NET (at least trying to). I've started doing the MVC music store tutorial and it makes sense. It's just a lot different than PHP. A lot is done for me and don't always get WHY its done the way it is (maybe because I am new to the framework) I just want to know where to start AND where to go. Webforms? MVC? Other?

And are there any books that you guys recommend to get me up to speed. I looked at some beginner books but I find they spend way too much time on HOW to program, the language (C#) and other web dev concepts. I would like a book that explains only ASP.NET and related concepts or atleast for the most part.

New off line application working with sdf file. Need advice


Hey Folks

I am working on a project currently where I need to get data out of a 3rd party vendor's software that uses a .sdf file I looked this up and its a SQL CE file. I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's



VS2010: Switching tabs in wpf designer

Hi, I have a problem with the WPF designer in VS 2010. I have a WPF UserControl which contains a TabControl with several Tabs (TabItems).  It was always possible to switch the tabs in the designer to see the content of the individual tabs.

Seeking Advice for Implementing Document Library Functionality

I have an assignment to implement a mechanism in WSS 3.0 to deliver files from a document library as PDF when the user selects a particular file.  I have a third party tool for PDF conversion which I can use to do the conversion, and I have put together some C# code for the API that does what I need as far as that goes. Where I am having trouble is deciding how to implement this in Sharepoint.  The multiple steps involved in kicking off a workflow would confuse many users, especially those not used to Sharepoint.  I would like to find a solution that would involve a single click on the chosen document. I know my way around ASP.NET, but Sharepoint is less familiar.  I am not afraid to jump in, and am not asking anyone to write code for me, but I am trying to get traction on the Sharepoint road.  I would appreciate any thoughts others have as to a direction I might take. Thanks.

Advice needed on backup strategy and implementation

This is my plan: Full database backup is performed at 5AM every day. Then log backups are taken every 30 minutes starting from 5:30AM till 11:30PM What I want to achieve is to have all backups for the same day to be contained in the same file on the disk. That is on Feb 18 2010 file c:\db_backup_02_18_10.BAK will be created at 5AM with full database backup. All backup logs that occur on Feb 18 will be appended to the same file. Next day c:\db_backup_02_19_10.BAK will be created at 5AM. Is this "correct" approach? The reason I like it is that everything needed to restore to any point in time for specific day is contained in one file and can be copied easily to a different computer. I tried to achieve this result via Maintenance Plan wizard by creating one task for full backup (scheduled once a day at 5AM) and another task for log backup (scheduled every 30 minutes starting from 5:30AM till 11:30PM) (both tasks are in the same maintenance plan). This, however, saves result from each job in a separate file called $DBNAME_backup_YYYY_MM_DD_HHMMSS_NNNNNNN.trn (for transaction log backup; will probably have extension .BAK for full backup) Can this even be done via Maintenance plan? I think I can achieve desired result via SSIS where I can generate file name programmatically and pass it as a parameter to "BACKUP DATABASE ..." or "BACKUP LOG ..." stat

need advice on a schema

I've inherited an ancient Access database that I've migrated to MS SQL. Have a question about how to improve a particular table.The table contains records for lodging establishments. Each row represents a particular establishment, and there are dozens and dozens of columns. Among these columns are over a dozen that name various activities available in the area where the establishment is located. Each activity has its own separate column, and the values are set to true or false. I sense there is a better way to handle this.The table will be queried with a web form, and among the form components will be checkboxes for each of these activities. What would be the best schema for the table? Should I create another table for activities (each activity being a row), and join it to the original table?Or is there a smarter way to handle this? I have not been asked to make any changes but this seems like a good opportunity to improve the database (and learn some things myself about how to design a relational database properly). Here's the schema of the existing table (I've imported it from Access into SQL 2005 but haven't altered anything yet): USE [maineinns_staging] GO /****** Object: Table [dbo].[MaineInnMembers] Script Date: 08/25/2010 14:31:45 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MaineInnMembers]( [ID] [int] NOT NULL,

Advice on Data from Data - SQL VB.NET

Could on I get some advice on how to properly write / retrieve, in VB.NET / ASP.NET Page,  from SQL. It's not so much the 'writing' part for SQL that I am worried about.  I'm having some trouble retrieving data properly. I have a routine that runs each time the page is loaded, or an insert is performed (2 button, virtually the same process), post back occurs. When the page loads getTheSavedData - could be empty (recordSet) display 1 Record (recordSet) - that is based upon the getTheSavedData or lack there of   My difficulty is that, my second recordSet isnt getting the parameters expressed from the first recordset.  The saved information has an impact on the 2nd recordset / query. It can more or less be summarized in this Procedure. (excuse the clutter, I've been working with a few things, trying to display it on screen for myself)Private Sub a1TrialData() Dim a1IDCBDsaved As Integer = 0 Dim a1IDPBDsaved As Integer = 0 Dim a1IDCBDremaining As Integer Dim a1IDPBDremaining As Integer Dim SQLCount As String = "SELECT * FROM MER_ASS_QA WHERE U_ID = " & _ Merit3.passVariables.AUIDp & " AND A_Priority = " & _ Merit3.passVariables.aPriorityP & "AND TRIAL_NUM = " & _ Merit3.passVariables.aTrialNumP Dim strSQL

advice needed on implementing a re-usable class (c#)

Hi guys,Im trying to create a function for my website that allows the re-sizing of images for different purposes. I want the function to use variables for image height and image width, and obviously for the file itself. I have working test code for re-sizing a selected image that is hard-coded into the function. I have created it in a separate class in my App_Code folder, and have tried calling it on web pages and it works until I try and pass a filename as a variable, encountering a variety of errors. Should I be using a server control/user control to do this? or do I need something else?RegardsPooleo

Multiple customer architecture advice

Hi I am setting up a SharePoint application that will be run from a data center for multiple customers. Each customer will be provided with a core set of SSRS reports managed by our organisation along with some document libraries containing pre-formatted web part pages. There will be a relatively small amount of other SharePoint content primarily associated with product documentation. Each customers application needs to be partitioned to use a separate database and security. The security will be implemented with forms authentication. As a prototype I have created a master site (port 80) with sub-sites for each customer. My assumption was that this would make it easy to manage shared content. I am however concerned about how to secure each customer to their own sub-site and prevent them from having access to the master site (it is there in the breadcrumb links on many pages). Is a multiple site approach the right way to go about this job or should I be looking at other architectures?Andrew Wiles - www.it-workplace.com - MDX made simple

Advice on collecting data in a time series

Hi everyone,  I just wanted to get some ideas of what you would think be the best way to collect data/numbers that are part of a time series?  Let's say I'm collecting monthly data from the users, related to some product and I'd like to be able to provide them a simple and efficient way of entering these numbers based on some month end period.  So for instance on 6/30/2009, they could enter some numbers for a set of data points that pertain to that product.  Would one of the data controls (such as GridView or DetailsView) be sufficient to do this?  I know the GridView isn't so much able to save data but I believe the DetailsView has some functionality for that. In the end, I'd really like to provide a seemless way to do show this and ability to enter and save this.  Any ideas would be appreciated.Thanks

Need advice on preformance (web service returns list items on 20000 rows list)

Greetings I need to write a web service that will return sharepoint list items (default web services of sharepoint are no use to me since they just suck when the site is not in english).  Since we have lists with 20k+ items, the return xml might get large. Query web service did manage to do it, yet it took some time to output the xml with those 20k rows.  I am affraid that my custom made web service will preform poorly since it wont be "native" to sharepoint. I am asking for your judgement, did i fell into common pitfalls or something or is there any way to improve preformance of my code? My own web service code looks like this:   [WebMethod] public XmlDocument GetListItems(string siteurl, string listguid,string querytext,string rowlimit) { InitSchemaExporter(siteurl); SPQuery query = new SPQuery(); query.RowLimit = rowlimit.Length==0?10:Convert.ToUInt32(rowlimit); query.Query=querytext; return SchemaExporter.GetListItems(listguid, query); } public void InitSchemaExporter(string siteurl) { SchemaExporter.SetSite(siteurl); SchemaExporter.IgnoreField = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["IgnoreField"].Split(new string[1] { "\r\n" }, System.StringSplitOptions.None).ToList<string>(); ; SchemaExporter.IgnoreList = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["IgnoreList"].Split(new string[
