CSLA 4 version 4.5.12 beta released

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
First: CSLA .NET has moved to GitHub and has a new home page: Second, the most recent beta version 4.5.12, is now available for download and through nuget. There are a couple bug fixes, and some server-side data portal enhancements to better support the use of IoC containers for creating business objects when using the encapsulated data portal model. In summary, you can create an implementation of Csla.Server.IDataPortalInterceptor where you can implement code that runs at the very start and very end of every single data portal call. Then you can create an implementation of Csla.Server.IDataPortalActivator where you can assume responsibility for creating an instance of
the requested business type, and for initializing the object instance (thus supporting property injection). Along with this, the data portal now allows you to use interfaces instead of concrete types (assuming you've supplied an IDataPortalActivator of course): var obj = Csla.DataPortal.FetchAsync(); In this example, the 'obj' reference might be any type that implements IPersonEdit, and the actual concrete type is determined by your IDataPortalActivator implementation. The default implementation is to create an instance of the supplied type, so the supplied type must be a concrete type. As a result, no existing code is affected by this change. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Use an ASP.NET Image Slider Control to show a Hero Graphic (aka banner image)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Have you noticed that many popular sites like,,, and others are now using a big banner image in the center of their front page?    That large banner image in the middle is called a “Hero graphic”. And it’s very useful to present to your website visitors important information: The hero graphic is often the first visual a visitor encounters on the site and its purpose
is to present an overview of the site's most important content. A hero graphic often consists of image and text, can be static or dynamic (e.g. a rotating list of images and/or topics). The content presented varies with the purpose of the site: it can be relevant news about the site, specific site-links, or - in the case of e-commerce - the best-selling or strategically placed products or services. –Wikipedia Video: DevExpress ASP.NET Image Slider I introduced you to the DevExpress ASP.NET Image Slider control in December 2012 release.

Adding a custom data source to Aggregated Business Calendar

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
With Feature Pack 1 for Duet Enterprise 1.0 and Duet Enterprise 2.0, you can add a custom data source to your Aggregated Business Calendar Web Part along with the other types of data sources. In this post, we walk you through the steps to create a SQL Server-based data source and configure the Aggregated Business Calendar Web Part to display the data from this data source. If Feature Pack 1 for Duet Enterprise 1.0 or Duet Enterprise 2.0 is installed on your server, you will have the OBA.Server.Extensions.dll assembly in the global assembly cache (GAC). You will need this
assembly for the development of the SQL Server data source. Create a data source First, we need to create a data source accessor, which will work as a back end and provide the data in the correct format when the aggregate calendar requests it. Here’s how you do this: 1. Open Visual Studio, and create a new class library project—for example, Project1. 2. Now add a reference to OBA.Server.Extensions.dll in your project, and use the OBA.Server.Extensions namespace. 3. Now your DataSourceAccessor class must implement the ICalendarAccessor interface. So create a class in your project—for...(Read whole news on source site)
