DHTML and .NET: Host Secure, Lightweight Client-Side Controls in Microsoft Internet Explorer


In the past, Web developers often used ActiveX controls if they wanted customized client-side functionality incorporated into their Web applications. Now, they can build objects supported by the Microsoft .NET Framework which are more compact, lightweight, secure, and seamlessly integrated. By hosting .NET Windows Forms controls in Internet Explorer, developers can realize many of their client-side Web development goals. This article adapts ActiveX concepts for use with Windows Forms, and builds a multifile upload application that demonstrates these techniques.

C# and the Web: Writing a Web Client Application with Managed Code in the Microsoft .NET Framework


When the author wanted to build a middleware Web client to connect to other applications over the Internet, he realized that the XMLHttpRequest COM object was not sufficient for his purposes. In order to build a Web client using managed code, the author had to use the HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes provided by the Microsoft .NET framework. These classes are used in the sample project as a substitute for the less powerful XMLHttpRequest COM object, allowing the author to build a full-featured Web client. They also take advantage of all the benefits that the CLR and managed code have to offer.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile

I changed from Vista to Windows 7.  Every time I start my computer it says I need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0  When I do that, the installation says it's already in my computer. I have looked and what's installed is Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.  What should I do?  Also, my bluetooth has stopped working. Is this why?

Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.OpenBinaryDirect - returns a 404 error if the file being requested

Hopefully someone can help with this. I'm using Sharepoint 2010. On the server I have manually created a folder in the "Shared Documents" folder called "bin" and uploaded a file into this folder If I attempt to access the files in this folder using the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.OpenBinaryDirect function,  I receive the following error: A first chance exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll: System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.    at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()    at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SPWebRequestExecutor.Execute()    at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.OpenBinaryDirect(ClientContext context, String serverRelativeUrl). Any other files in any other folders under the shared documents folder are accessible. Here is my example code: ClientContext clientCTX = new ClientContext(SPURL);             //Pass the credentials to the client context             clientCTX.Credentials = credentials;             List DeployFilesList = clientCTX.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Shared Documents");             CamlQuery caml

Looking for Microsoft Ajax 4 Client Templates reference/documentation/help


 I inherited the application that uses Microsoft Ajax 4 client templates. Syntax like {binding x, source=y, <another attribute>=z...}, special variables like: $id, $element, $itemdata, and Sys.UI.DataView components are all over. I don't understand the syntax and the usage.

I've been looking on the Web for any help, and all I find are some blogs that use those syntaxes, but no documentation. This site (asp.net) might had them in the past but now all they have is jQuery and Control Toolkit.

Can you please provide me some links where I can learn about MS client templates, syntax, Sys.UI.DataView, and how to use them.

[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Shared Memory Provider: Timeout error [258]


Hello All,

I am using MS SQL SERVER 2008. Im making an application which queries trillion of records. Im using PHP as scripting language. For those functions , which query database and 200 (approximately) rows of DB are returned, everything works fine. But if I query database and a large recordset should be returned, the following error is thrown:

Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => 08S01 [SQLSTATE] => 08S01 [1] => 258

=> 258 [2] => [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Shared Memory Provider: Timeout error [258]. [message] => [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Shared Memory Provider: Timeout error [258]. ) [1] => Array ( [0] => 08S01 [SQLSTATE] => 08S01 [1] => 258

Does, "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile (Web Installer)" = "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Web


I have the 1st of the two programs (above), and wondered if I should have it (the, "Client Profile" version); or instead, should uninstall it, and download the 2nd (above), the one (without, the words "Client Profile")?  OR, are they essentially the same?  I'm an intermediate computer user but don't have alot of experience with deciphering between the types of .NET Frameworks (like the 2 above).  Anyone familiar with this area, please advise.  (P.S.:  I never actually went to the download center and downloaded the (1st) item (above).  I just noticed it is installed (under, installed programs).

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, 32-bit, PC desktop, cable modem, Dell Inspiron 531s.  Installed RAM= 2 GB.  Total disk (C:) space = 218 GB. (About 1/2 of this is free, and 1/2 is used).



Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile installation error: (0x800B010B), "Generic trust failure "


I'm currently using a window 7 64 bit operating system fujitsu laptop and I've been trying to install a update: 'Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2160841)'. However, upon many tries of installing the update, i still couldn't get it install. The error details for the update is Code 66A.

Therefore, after searching on Windows forum for solution for that error, i've tried to repair the Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile by following these steps:

A. Click on Start and click on Control panel.

B. Go to Program and Features.

C. Scroll down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile, right click it.

D. It will give you a choice of Uninstall/Change, click it.

E. Then, it will give a choice to repair.

After following the above steps, the repair did not succeed because: Generic trust failure.

Microsoft AJAX CDN

Content delivery networks (CDNs) are composed of "edge cache" servers that are strategically placed around the world at key Internet network points. These "edge cache" servers can be used to cache and deliver all types of content - including images, videos, CSS and JavaScript files.

Using a CDN can significantly improve a website's end-user performance, since it enables browsers to more quickly retrieve and download content. For example, instead of having a browser request for an image traverse all the way across the Internet to your web server to download, a CDN can instead serve the request directly from a nearby "edge cache" server that might only be a single network hop away from your customer (making it return much faster - which makes your pages load quicker).

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

Use jQuery and ASP.NET AJAX to build a client side Repeater

By sending only data to the client, you can profoundly reduce the size of what you send and see a substantial increase in performance. You also allow yourself the ability to easily add features like light-weight sorting and paging on the client. This can not only improve your users' experience, but reduce server load and bandwidth requirements.

To that end, I'm going to walk you through these four steps to effectively implementing a client side Repeater, using ASP.NET AJAX and jQuery:

CLR Integration With Microsoft SQL Server

Transact-SQL provides as much flexibility as possible but, because it is not a real programming language, it has some shortcomings about many issues (memory management, exception handling, debugging, file processing (or streaming), object-orientation (classes), or thread management). Transact-SQL also lacks features of normal libraries (arrays, collections, serialization, expressions, or string manipulations, etc).
