OneSearch at the Saskatoon Public Library

by Administrator Monday, October 22, 2007 11:21 PM
The Saskatoon Public Library has been a long time user of Inmagic software. They use Inmagic's WebPublisher PRO to publish a whole myriad of databases for the reading and curious public. From the Saskatoon Obituary Index and Saskatchewan Art Exhibition Catalogues to the Saskatoon Directory of Community Information, there is something for everybody! The main library catalogue is managed by a much larger system, but these smaller databases, which would get lost in a bigger system or not fit at all, have found a home with Inmagic's powerful searching capabilities.

The Saskatoon Public Library In-House Databases, as this eclectic mix of disparate data is called, can be searched individually or all at the same time with Andornot's OneSearch add-on. The likelihood that you would search all 19 databases all at the same time is a bit slim, but if, for example, you were researching the "prairie" you would find, results in the Government Publications, Canadian Young Adult Literature, Local History Room Collections, Novels in Sequence, Sheet Music at the Library, and University and College Calendars and others. Then you could read all the titles in the Anne of the Prairie Series, while humming Bury Me Not on the Loan Prairie, as you consider attending Grande Prairie Regional College.

Test out SPL's OneSearch and think about your OneSearch possibilities. Do you have multiple databases? Would they lend themselves to being searched all at once? Contact Andornot for pricing.

Helpful Visual Studio tip: automatically insert attribute values when typing

by Ted Jardine Monday, October 15, 2007 3:13 PM

In Visual Studio 2005, the default is to not automatically insert attribute value quotes when typing in the HTML editor. I don't like that. If you're like me, change this default behaviour by going to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> HTML -> Format. Then check off "Insert attribute value quotes when typing."

Insert attribute value quotes when typing. 

On another note, you'll notice the "Insert attribute value quotes when formatting" checkbox right below. This is on by default; I find it very useful in that one of my favourite shortcut key chords (ctrl-K, ctrl-F) not only formats the selected text, but also then automatically enters any missing attribute value quotes.

ASP.NET AJAX Funky Exceptions Part II

by Ted Jardine Friday, October 05, 2007 12:40 PM

Back in the summer I described an issue with ASP.NET AJAX. The session solution dealt with things well enough (and note the update to simply disable session in a page-by-page basis for all but the pages requiring reading or writing to the session), but I'm still getting the occasional SystemWeb.HttpException where there's a problem with the RoleManager module:

Server cannot modify cookies after HTTP headers have been sent.

Stack trace: at System.Web.HttpCookieCollection.Add(HttpCookie cookie) at System.Web.Security.RoleManagerModule.OnLeave(Object source, EventArgs eventArgs)

Of course, because the user doesn't get what's going on (the user just gets the javascript alert box mentioned previously as I haven't intercepted the ASP.NET AJAX thrown error in this application - for this reason, I will be in all future applications), this exception is usually thrown multiple times until the user navigates to another page and then returns to try again. Some users are quite persistent (I recall one being close to 10 times) which would be humorous if it wasn't just so cruel and bad.

It turns out I've had to disable role caching as per the article I mentioned in the last post until either the ASP.NET Role Manager is fixed or I decide to write/find a custom role module. What's interesting is that the roles are not ever being changed in the pages throwing the exception! Harumph. Back to looking at jQuery from here on in.

Has anyone come up with a solution for this so that the roles data store is not being hit on every page load?

UPDATE: As per the comments below, apparently this has been fixed in ASP.NET 3.5, but there are no plans to back port the fix to 2.0.
