An interesting question came up recently on the ASP.NET forums. In it, the questioner was attempting to use my Chop() extension method to limit the number of characters in a WebGrid column but it wouldn't work. At first, I was a little stumped, so I tried it myself and got an error message:

Following on from the recent spate of extensions methods I've posted, here's another I use to convert URLs and email addresses into links within HTML.

If you want to find which CheckBoxes were selected in a multiple record DataBound control, the way that you you do it depends on the type of control you use. These examples demonstrate a CheckBox control being added to a GridView, Repeater and a DataList. For simplicity, I have placed all three controls on the same page, and used the Access version of theNorthwind database. One AccessDataSource control is used to bind the results of "SELECT [CategoryID], [Description], [CategoryName] FROM [Categories]" to all three controls.

The contents of an RSS feed only change when items that appear in it are added or amended, so the feed created in the previous article (Create an RSS Feed In ASP.NET 2.0 C#) is rather inefficient, in that the output is generated everytime the feed is requested. Here's an improvement.
