For this reason I decided to begin work on an ASP.NET application that could be used to easily connect to a SQL Server, query the different system objects on the server, as well as the database schema. By querying the database schema we can easily store and retrieve the table, column, stored procedure, etc descriptions directly within the schema of the database. http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/Dynamic-Data-Dictionary.aspx Anastasia Arteyeva http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/Dynamic-Data-Dictionary.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=0e3944c8-561e-4b5d-a384-7dd676a5c7c0 Mon, 04 May 2009 16:42:21 -0400 SQL Server ASP.NET/AJAX Anastasia Arteyeva http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/pingback.axd http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=0e3944c8-561e-4b5d-a384-7dd676a5c7c0 0 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/trackback.axd?id=0e3944c8-561e-4b5d-a384-7dd676a5c7c0 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/Dynamic-Data-Dictionary.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/syndication.axd?post=0e3944c8-561e-4b5d-a384-7dd676a5c7c0 ASP.NET 3.5 AJAX Pocket Guide Source Code In this post I want to discuss the accompanying source code and how I can better fit the book into your personal and professional needs... http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Source-Code.aspx Matthew Ellis http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Source-Code.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=1577a67e-a437-47ed-ac36-e5cc6d3c0075 Sat, 03 May 2008 03:45:37 -0400 Books Matthew Ellis http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/pingback.axd http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=1577a67e-a437-47ed-ac36-e5cc6d3c0075 0 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/trackback.axd?id=1577a67e-a437-47ed-ac36-e5cc6d3c0075 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Source-Code.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/syndication.axd?post=1577a67e-a437-47ed-ac36-e5cc6d3c0075 ASP.NET 3.5 AJAX Pocket Guide Released I'm extremely excited to announce that my latest publication, ASP.NET 3.5 AJAX Pocket Guide has been released and is available from the Magma Interactive online store, as well your favorite online retailers. http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Released.aspx Matthew Ellis http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Released.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=9899317c-b0f4-426e-8faa-6a1e0e0d4073 Thu, 01 May 2008 06:03:31 -0400 Books Matthew Ellis http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/pingback.axd http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post.aspx?id=9899317c-b0f4-426e-8faa-6a1e0e0d4073 0 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/trackback.axd?id=9899317c-b0f4-426e-8faa-6a1e0e0d4073 http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/post/ASPNET-35-AJAX-Pocket-Guide-Released.aspx#comment http://magmainteractive.net/weblogs/syndication.axd?post=9899317c-b0f4-426e-8faa-6a1e0e0d4073 Handling Errors During a Partial-page Postback What if you make heavy use of the UpdatePanel control to perform asynchronous postbacks and an exception is encountered while processing the server-side code?
