Create a Google Site Map with ASP.NET

ASP.NET 3.5 ASP.NET Web Forms

Over Christmas, I had a bit of spare time, so I decided to add some functionality to this site. One of the things that I added was the ability for people to post comments about specific articles, and you will see that a form has been added at the end of this article. The other thing I have been meaning to get round to is to add a Google Site Map. I believe I have created my site to be as friendly to Google's bots as possible, but there is no harm in submitting a site map to guarantee that Google knows about all the pages I want indexed.

A DataBound Javascript News Ticker for ASP.NET

Javascript ASP.NET 3.5

It's funny how requirements come along like buses in the ASP.NET forums - you suddenly get the same thing asked for by two or more people in quick succession. Recently, a couple of people asked for help creating a Javascript ticker, like the one at the top of the BBC News site, which displays a selected number of headlines drawn from a database. I had adapted the code from the BBC site to create a similar widget that displayed the most recent threads in a message board on an old Classic ASP site some time ago. It's about time I dusted it off and updated it for use in an ASP.NET application.

Delegates, Anonymous Methods and Lambda Expressions in C#

07 December 2008 19:33

C# ASP.NET 3.5

Delegates in C# cause a fair amount of confusion, but with the introduction of LINQ to SQL and the profilic use of the Lambda Expression operator (=>) that it has foisted on an unprepared batch of beginners, an understanding of how these two items are related, together with Anonymous Methods becomes more important. Most definitions of Delegates that you find start off with comparing them to "function pointers in C or C++", which is great if you ever worked with those languages and understood them, but not helpful to new programmers. Here's my attempt at simplifying the various concepts.
