Peter Vogel returns to encrypting web.config files in subfolders and encrypting non-standard sections. Sort of everything you wanted to know about encrypting the web.config file but were afraid someone would tell you.
With the new year upon us, Peter Vogel looks back at some of the big changes and advancements in ASP.NET in 2010.
If you're trying to decide whether to use Crystal Reports or SQL Server Reporting Services with ASP.NET, you can rest assured that there is no bad choice.
Peter moves beyond the basics of setting up a ListView to add databound controls, control headers and footers and turn on updating.
The ListView is the most powerful of the DataView controls and the hardest to work with. Here's how to minimize the pain while getting all the benefits.
Peter completes his series on integrating AJAX and a client-side control by implementing it in ASP.NET MVC. And he draws some conclusions on client-side development in ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, and in the world at large.
Peter Vogel abandons ASP.NET (mostly) to discuss how to better debug programs.
Microsoft and the jQuery team's announcements about the new data-driven plugins for jQuery have Peter all excited. He describes the plugins and what he's going to be doing with them in upcoming columns.
Peter returns to last week's topic to go beyond the basics of how to add controls to a page to fully integrate it into your Page's lifecycle.
There are, at least, six ways to have controls magically appear on a page at runtime. Just don't add it directly to the Page.
Microsoft has another solution for managing your Web.config file as you move your site to production. And, no matter what the name of this feature suggests, you don't have to learn XSLT to use it.
Peter Vogel raises some interesting questions that address one of the major benefits of ASP.NET MVC: Test Driven Development.
