  • *sigh* :'(

    To clarify I do understand the technologies. I understand the "purpose" of putting ASP ontop of the .NET framework....

    I guess I just never took the time to wrap my head around it and stop asking "Why". I've tried to learn it before and it was *meh*, I'll just go with another technology...but now I'm kinda being shoved into it.

  • *sigh* :'(

    It's not acceptable because that's not the way the paying world works. They want the <asp:TextBox>, and the <form> to wrap around an entire page.

    (isPost), what is that? Why can't I just do an async call and handle my callback?

    Seriously it's depressing to get an interview for a Senior Developer position, and when they ask "What happens on page postback?", and I say "Unfortunately I don't write in that manner" and I hear "Oh, um, hmm, well that's how you do it in .NET"

    I feel like I'm losing my mind, I KNOW I'm Senior/Lead material, I just don't use it the "legacy", way (before jQuery came along and made everyone's life easier)?

    That's what I do now. Kinda not acceptable, that's why I'm in this place.

    OK, so, I'm Developer.

    Web - No problem, Server - No Problem, HTTP - No problem, most positions no problem. As a developer I've gotten WinForms work done, Web work done, etc.

    ASP.NET is killing me. I have no idea what my break in thinking is....

    I understand that <? ?> is pretty much equal to <% %> and etc....however as I'm trying to go  back and learn things...Microsoft is introducing Razor, etc. So I'm going from trying to learn to wrap things in <form> and <asp:TextBox> to normal <input type="text" />. In other words I need to break what I know, to learn what I need, to learn that I need to use what I've been.

    Mentally I'm exhausted and I don't know what to do.

  • Windows Phone 8 on Win 7

    Um. I'm kinda looking for a different answer, or am I to believe that Microsoft is taking the "do it our way" approach? I'm not knocking it, just seems a little outlandish that there's no shim until adoption rate of Windows 8 goes higher.

    If you needed Vista to develop for Windows Phone not one company would have written anything.

  • Windows Phone 8 on Win 7

    So, short story is...

    My company isn't ready to move to Windows 8, but we want to develop for Windows Phone.

    wut do?

  • Simple Question ASP.NET mvc3 (Razor)

    Well, I took the better option of removing the spaces (Apparently I have more control over the data then I previously had thought). However I'm having an issue trying to parameterize the data...

          Dim qfilter = Request.Form("qfilter").ToString
          Dim q = Request.Form("q").ToString
          Dim db = Database.Open("myConnectionString")
          Dim selectQuery = "SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE @0 = @1"
          For Each row in db.Query(selectQuery,qfilter,q)
              'Code to show results

    However I'm not getting any results back....when I output the variables I'm getting the @0 and @1 the way they should be (Payroll and 7748 respectively), however inside the page nothing else is happening.


  • Simple Question ASP.NET mvc3 (Razor)

    At night I'm working in MySQL and days now my job is to convert Access to SQL Server and build some webapps around them, so please forgive me for the simpleness of this.

    I have a connection to a remote server that has a table with some data (all imported). However the column names have spaces in them. So when I perform my query...

    @For Each row in db.Query(QueryString)


    I'm trying to create a row in a table using @:<tr><td>@row.x</td></tr>, however it's failing when x has a space in it. Additionally I tried @row.[x] and it still fails. Any ideas? Or a article/page that can point me in the right direction?


  • NFC with .NET

    I'm looking for any documentation/API/Videos on using NFC Technology with VB.NET or C#.NET. I'm seeing pretty low level articles, but nothing higher.... any ideas?

  • How to: ASP.NET user controls?

    I'm trying to move my team from using regular ASP.NET controls over to using HTML5 related controls however (for some reason), they're in love with actually using the toolbox controls.

    Is there any idiots guide to writing toolbox controls (user controls)? From within VB? If needed I'll write the HTML5 elements as controls for my team... thanks.
