MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

XmlReader.Create(textReader, XmlReaderSettings) Validation Issue

For the most part, when I perform an XmlReader.Read() I am catching validation errors based on my schemas.  This, however, is a large group of schemas with several imports and includes.  My question is why I'm having validation errors in two places that seem to be defined in the schema.   Here's an example:   Schema 1 (you can see that IdentificationType has sub-elements for IdentificationID and IdentificationCode):   <xsd:complexType name="IdentificationType">                 <xsd:annotation>                         <xsd:documentation>A data type for a representation of an identity.</xsd:documentation>                         <xsd:appinfo>                                 <i:Base i:namespace="http://niem.gov/niem/structures/2.0" i:name="Object"/>               &nb

Issue accessing textbox controls nested within a DetailsView within an UpdatePanel

I have a couple of textboxes nested with a detailsview, within an updatepanel.  When I try and access them from the code behind, it returns a null value as if they don't exist.  Can't figure out why that would be.ASPX code is: <asp:UpdatePanel ID="upSpecificShout" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional" ChildrenAsTriggers="true" > <ContentTemplate> <asp:DetailsView ID="dvSingleShout" DataSourceID="sdsSingleShout" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="false" OnDataBound="SetDVIcons" HeaderStyle-CssClass="noDisplay" > <EmptyDataTemplate> <p class="Watermark"> The panel on the left shows a list of everything you've shouted. (Your replies to other shouts are highlighted in blue/green.) </p> <p class="Watermark"> This right hand panel will show specific shouts with a list of replies etc.. Just do a little click on a shout title to display more detail here. </p> <p class="Watermark">

Report Builder 3.0 issue - can view existing rdl files but cannot create new reports

I have Report Builder 3.0 deployed on my local machine pointing to a remote SQL Server 2008 R2 instance outside of my local domain.  Within this local Report Builder 3.0 instance I am able to open up previously created rdl files from the remote SQL Server 2008 R2 instance that I am connecting to.  However, if I try to create a new report on my local instance of Report Builder 3.0 and attempt to use the same data source as was used to create these existing rdl files, I receive the error: "Unable to connect to data source. The user credentials provided in the connection string do not have permission to connect to Reporting Services."  So why can I open existing rdl files from this remote SQL Server 2008 R2 instance, but not create new ones even though I'm using the same data source as the existing rdl files?  Thanks, Mark

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.
