The Top 5 Mistakes AngularJS Developers Make Part 2: Abusing $watch

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is the second part in a five-part series that covers common AngularJS mistakes. To recap, the top five mistakes I see people make are: Heavy reliance on $scope (not using controller as)  Abusing $watch Overusing $broadcast and $emit Hacking the DOM Failing to Test When I posted the first article, one comment suggested that using controller as is fine for smaller controllers but large, complex controllers with dependencies might not work out as well. I disagree, and you’ll see why later in this series. I’ll get more into dependencies in the next post,
but for now I’d like to take the concept of $scope one step further to discuss the second mistake. Abusing $watch There are plenty of reasons why you want to watch for changes to certain properties and respond. It is quite common on a complex form to render information or process an algorithm based on a selection. To keep the example simple I created a contrived scenario, but bear with me because I think you’ll see how it extrapolates to common, real world examples.

Style recommendation for writing CAML in C#

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
  I came across some sample CAML code a while back, and have been following their way of defining CAML in C# Today a colleague commented on my code and I thought, hey, I should write this down.   Use string.concat   var query = new SPQuery()
    Query = string.Concat(
                                    "", id, "",
var items = list.GetItems(query);   Benefits   You don't have to bury the CAML in one crazy line or block of text. I can arbitrarily indent my XML elements and the code doesn't see it at all.  You almost always...(Read whole news on source site)
