AddThis Social Bookmark Button
The first thing that we will do with RavenDB and the NuGet data is to issue the same logical query as the one used to populate the packages page. As a reminder, here is how it looks: SELECT TOP (30) -- ton of fields removed for brevity FROM ( SELECT Filtered.Id
, Filtered.PackageRegistrationKey , Filtered.Version , Filtered.DownloadCount , row_number() OVER (ORDER BY Filtered.DownloadCount DESC, Filtered.Id ASC) AS [row_number] ...(Read whole news on source site)

InfoPath 2013 uses new Online Pictures instead of Clip Art

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
  The InfoPath 2013 Preview doesn't really have many new features.  But this one little one made me smile. In InfoPath 2013, the Clip Art ribbon is replaced with Online Pictures. For those of you wondering what was there before, in InfoPath 2010 it looked like this.  Yes it's that little button that we never used. This dialog appears when you click it.   Searching for a victim's face...  
  A few things would make this even more awesome: Add my commonly used Clip Arts to my skydrive, and link it up.  This probably works already, except my Office 2013 Preview isn't hooked up to my normal Microsoft Account. Allow additional websites, I find to be extremely good. Or allow URL to be used directly in the dialog. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Build Single Page Apps - Part 9 - Navigation, Transitions, Storage, and Messaging

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I like demo apps that show how to deal with real scenarios like navigation, animation, client storage, and event messaging. A SPA generally has multiple views of related data and uses navigation so it only makes sense that my new Pluralsight course “Single Page Apps with HTML5, ASP.NET Web API, Knockout, and jQuery” demonstrates navigation. And frankly, the rest of the topics like animations and storage were just too cool to leave out. 48 Hours Only: Today my latest course Single Page Apps with HTML5, ASP.NET Web API, Knockout and jQuery became available at
Pluralsight and it happens to be the 300th course released by Pluralsight! To celebrate, they are offering my course for free for 48 hours (see web site for exact terms and details). You can catch up on the previous posts in this series here: Part 1 - The Story Begins (What is the Code Camper SPA?) Part 2 - Client Technologies Part 3 - Server Technologies (the Data Layer) Part 4 – Serving JSON with ASP.NET Web API Part 5 - HTML 5 and ASP.NET Web Optimization Part 6 - JavaScript Modules...(Read whole news on source site)

SimpleMembership, Membership Providers, Universal Providers and the new ASP.NET 4.5 Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC 4 templates

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
The ASP.NET MVC 4 Internet template adds some new, very useful features which are built on top of SimpleMembership. These changes add some great features, like a much simpler and extensible membership API and support for OAuth. However, the new account management features require SimpleMembership and won't work against existing ASP.NET Membership Providers. I'll start with a summary of top things you need to know, then dig into a lot more detail. Summary: SimpleMembership has been designed as a replacement for traditional the previous ASP.NET Role and Membership provider system SimpleMembership
solves common problems people ran into with the Membership provider system and was designed for modern user / membership / storage needs SimpleMembership integrates with the previous membership system, but you can't use a MembershipProvider with SimpleMembership The new ASP.NET MVC 4 Internet application template AccountController requires SimpleMembership and is not compatible with previous MembershipProviders You can continue to use existing ASP.NET Role and Membership providers in ASP.NET 4.5 and ASP.NET MVC 4 - just not with the ASP.NET MVC 4 AccountController The existing...(Read whole news on source site)
