Wednesday, April 9, 2014 1:45 PM

Entity Framework

I managed to generate this error twice within a few days while working with the Entity Framework and SQL Server 2012. I had to resort to searching for a resolution on both occasions so I'm posting about it to sear the cause and solution into my brain.

Migrating Classic ASP To ASP.NET Razor Web Pages Part Two- Data Access

Monday, March 3, 2014 1:26 PM

Classic ASP VB.Net ASP.NET Web Pages WebMatrix

The first article in this series explored the differences (and similarities) between classic ASP inline syntax and Razor syntax, the templating technology behind ASP.NET Razor Web Pages. The work required so far to port intermixed HTML and simple conditional and selection statements across from classic ASP to Razor didn't require a lot of effort. That is about to change in this article as I look at data access.

Creating Reusable Components For ASP.NET Razor Web Pages

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 7:39 PM

ASP.NET Web Pages WebMatrix

There are a number of ways that you can maximise code re-use within a Razor Web Pages site: Layout pages, helpers, functions and so on. As you build more sites, you soon find that you are repeating code between them. You might have a collection of custom utility functions and extension methods, for example that you find yourself copying and pasting across sites. Over time, this will become a maintenance nightmare as different versions of the methods live in different sites. This article shows how to solve that problem easily by creating a library that can be shared across multiple sites.
