If you are developing a business application using ASP.NET MVC, and need to produce some kind of dashboard-style reporting, the Chart Controls from Microsoft are a good place to start. Having a summary in some form of document, say a PDF is also a common requirement. This article introduces you to satisfying both needs.

There are a number of jQuery star rating plugins to choose from. All have their pros and cons. For this site, I decided to implement the one from FyneWorks because it allows for split stars. Here's how I did it.

I, and many other contributors to the forums at www.asp.net find examples of code posted on a daily basis that are vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. We continue to exhort beginners (and some more experienced programmers) to code against them. This article examines just how serious a flaw vulnerable coding can be, and what you should do about it.

There's always a splurge of new books that come out around the RTM of any new ASP.NET related technology. Authors all over the place are burning the midnight oil, cursing the changes from one CTP to the next, through to Betas and hoping against hope that the Release Candidates and final RTMs aren't stuffed with "breaking changes" which inevitably mean total rewrites of whole sections or chapters in their draft. And then the race between the publishers is on, as each tries to get their offer to market before the others. Here, I look at three of the titles that were published around the time that ASP.NET MVC was launched, and give my judgement on how they fare in covering not only the core Framework but the key features that ASP.NET MVC is designed to offer:

For the majority of personal web sites, two uses of XML are commonplace: creating an RSS feed and a Google Sitemap. Here, I look at how to create both of those using LINQ to XML for an ASP.NET MVC web site.

Building on my previous article, which looked at adding data with one-to-many and many-to-many relationships via the Entity Framework, here's a look at how to modify that data within an ASP.NET MVC application.

Taking on two new technologies - ASP.NET MVC and the Entity Framework - at the same time was bound to provide some "interesting" moments. Getting data out via EF has so far been pretty straightforward. But when it got to building the back end of my site, I had some fun trying to manage INSERTS with One-To-Many and Many-To-Many relationships.

According to Google's Webmaster tools, there are about 15,000 incoming links to my site. 13,000 of those reference a .ASPX file on disk. When I convert to MVC, with new Search Engine Friendly urls, all those links will break unless I do something about it. Presenting users with a 404 - file not found is not an option. I need to show them the content they were expecting, and update Search Engines with the news that things have changed. Here's how I will be managing those Legacy URLs.

A Tag Cloud is a visual depiction of Tags or categories on a web site. CSS is used to set the variable font size of each Tag to illustrate its relative frequency or popularity within the site. As part of the migration of my site to ASP.NET MVC, I am introducing one to replace the Categories navigation that appears on the left hand side of each page, which contains a count of items within each category.

I'm in the process of rewriting mikesdotnetting.com using the ASP.NET MVC framework. It's an interesting experience, in that this is my first exposure to MVC. The first stumbling block I encountered was how to pass data in a satisfactory way to Partial Views which only represent part of the data that is to be displayed in the View. Since I struggled to find clear guidance on this, I thought I would share a way to do it.

I've recently done a series of articles that feature calling databases via AJAX using jQuery. In pretty much all of the articles, I have used Web Services as my data access mechanism. Judging from the comments that some of the articles have attracted, this has caused a little confusion. But Web Services is just one mechanism. Page Methods and simple ASPX files are two more. And finally, as pointed out by a commenter, Benny Halperin, ASHX files are yet another option. In this article, I shall review each of these approaches.

IP addresses can reveal a lot about your web visitors. For an ecommerce site, the owner or registrant of the visitor's IP address can be very useful information. You could paste each visitor IP address into one of the many free IP Lookup sites available, but that can be time-consuming and tedious. Or you could build your own lookup. This article shows how this can be done pretty quickly.

This article looks at efficient use of jQuery tabs when displaying data. Specifically, it covers how to lazy-load data, so that it is only accessed and displayed if the tab is clicked.

It was bound to happen - you knock up an article on jQuery draggables one day, and the next, someone like Jim ;-) comes along and asks about persisting the position of the dragged item across Postbacks, or even sessions. I suppose it's my fault - I mentioned using draggables in a previous life in the context of saving the position, so it's only fair I share how that's done.
