Free 30 minute consultation

by Administrator Monday, January 08, 2007 2:31 PM

We have just completed our first 30 minute free consultation with Yanming Fei, Librarian at the Alberta Securities Commission in Calgary. In the brief Webex and phone session we were able to show Yanming how to determine which forms were being used to display data in her web-based catalogue textbase and then how to modify several lines in the full display form. Now she can do any new modifications herself.

This offer was extended to our clients in our 2006 Christmas mail out. We have several other clients lining up to take advantage of this and to get the most out of their Inmagic software. We encourage others to do the same. Please contact us via email or phone 1-866-266-2525 local 1 or 604-269-2525 to arrange a mutually convenient time. This offer expires January 31, 2007.


ASP.NET 2.0 Profile with Web Application Project Gotcha

When using Web Application Project with Visual Studio 2005 instead of Website Project, the profile personalization feature new to ASP.NET 2.0 doesn't "just work" the way all the articles describing Membership and Profile say it does. The strongly-typed ProfileCommon class is not auto-generated and Intellisense tells you it has no idea what you're talking about when you attempt to access HttpContext.Profile from code.

ScottGu reveals (full article):

VS 2005 Web Application Projects don't automatically support generating a strongly-typed Profile class proxy. However, you can use this free download to automatically keep your own proxy class in sync with the profile configuration.

I got quite frustrated, enough to bang the desk, but fortunately not enough to emit a Primal Yodel. As usual, Super Ted came to the rescue and pointed me to the above download.

UPDATE June 25, 2007 - The gotdotnet site in the "free download" link above has shut its doors, possibly forever, so here is a copy of the Web Profile Generator for your downloading pleasure: Web Profile Generator download.

UPDATE II from Ted, July 4, 2007 - As of yesterday, the Web Profile Generator lives again on CodePlex:
