  • <asp:​EntityData​Source not working in VS2015 Visual Web Part

    What is the targeting .NET framework version of your project?

    If you upgraded the project from targeting 3.5 to 4.X, be sure to also update the "Reference" of "System.Web.Entity" from .NET v3.5 to 4.0 too. (By removing it and do "Add Reference" to the correct version again.

  • Are there Channel 9 scripts available anywhere?

    Some of the videos have transcript provided by the guest (e.g.: this one)

    And then some other videos have option "CC" available that can be searched in the C9 search box with option "Has Captions" checked,

    Say if the page for video is located at:https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2016/B887

    The caption can be downloaded from:

    Feel free to write code to remove the time information yourself if you want.


  • SpamSpamSpam

    Since seems the old SpamSpamSpam thread is gone, will start a new one here.


  • AD DR Drill

    If you click the "Advanced..." button from the TCP/IPv4 Properties and go to the DNS tab, you can specify as many DNS servers as you want.

    I'd prefer setting it via DHCP options so need not go to each PC and set it one by one, but whatever.

  • Xamarin - hopes and fears

    , Ian2 wrote


    I though the point of Xamarin was to bring C# / MS.Net  to other platforms? 

    I don't believe it should try to become a panacea.

    Most companies who want iOS/Android App have already done so. So to increase the use of Xamarin would mean to persuade people with existing Apps to move to Xamarin.

    That's why people said it's relavent. (I read it from a website linked from a recent post in TDWTF and that's not my opinion)

    That page also suggest Xamarin support iOS API level up to iOS 7 only as why he won't move to Xamarin at that time, but I checked and it apparently already added iOS 9.X API support.

  • Xamarin - hopes and fears

    Actually, the support for iOS does not go well too.

    Seems currently Xamarin does not compile code to Swift. For companies which had started moving their code to Swift already, using Xamarin would mean "a step backward".

  • Microsoft Edge browser problem fixed

    @ScottWelker: On the other hand, a web game that uses WebGL keep crashing on Chrome when clicking around the third button, but have no such problem in Edge/Firefox/Safari.

    Talking about browser that fails, I dropped my phone on floor yesterday and wanted to find out repair information on Microsoft Store. Their webpage for mobile support becomes flat white page on IE11 but can be opened on Chrome (not tried on Edge as my working machine is still Win7), WTF?

  • Google.com unsafe ?

    "Some pages on google.com contain deceptive content right now."

    Thanks (and no thanks) to malware sites that use keyword to trick Google to place them to higher rank and Google cannot completely eliminate them from the result, the status describes the status reflecting reality. The bottom of the page actually included some of the links that users reported to contain those contents - since Google displays result in form with redirecter link that originates from google.com ( google.com/url?... ), those malicious contents are counted against "google.com".

    On the other hand, Bing shows result URL directly so does not suffer from this problem.

    And there are "dangerous sites" that sends people to google.com, including Blogspot one that I presume is using Google search functionality to replace it's internal search function.

  • Date stored as an int in SQL Server

    @AndyC: That needs some adjustment as 735572 clearly is not a value with counting start on '1900-01-01', when the expected answer is '2014-12-05'.

    Replace INVHEAD.Invoice_Date in the provided SQL select clause with 735572 to see the expected result.

  • Date stored as an int in SQL Server

    In MSSQL, int 0 is '1900-01-01' in datetime. So you need some adjustment

    SELECT CONVERT(datetime, 735572 - 693596)

    693596 is the integer value for '3799-01-01' in SQL
