  • MVC4 App opens with directory listing and gives a 404 for any direct URL's entered in the browser

    - by ProfK
    I've just deployed a previously (on my local IIS) working MVC4 app to IIS 7.5 on the dev server. After tweaking this and that - one knows how these things get forgotten - the app finally launches, but shows a directory listing of the app root. Clicking on most links there works, opening the directory listing of the sub-directory. Elmah logs no errors and /elmah.asd also gives a 404. The site has an appropriate localhost binding in the hosts file. I can find nothing wrong. MVC is installed on the server, as another MCV app works fine.

  • Advice on SCRUM for the solitary developer [closed]

    - by ProfK
    Possible Duplicate: Agile for the Solo Developer I am looking for advice on the SCRUM process for a solitary developer. Most SCRUM resources I see focus on its use in a team environment, hence my question here. I'd like some guidance on structuring and managing my projects for SCRUM, with me as a solitary developer and business owner, but still occasionally including my clients for input and feedback. Areas I'm not clear on include resolving my backlog into 'sprintable' project areas and stories, defining user stories properly with a view to being digested by developer level users, defining feasible sprints for a single developer etc. Essentially I'm looking for advice on moving from using scrum in a team/office environment, with colleagues and project manager, and using chaos/cowboy-coding on my own, to assuming the role of PM myself and adopting scrum for work on my own. Any advice is welcome.

  • Inheritance versus Composition in a business application

    - by ProfK
    I have a training management and tracking system, with a high level structure as follows: We have a Role1, e.g. Manager, Shift-boss, miner, etc. and a Candidate, training for that Role. The role has a list of courses and their subjects the candidate needs to complete to qualify for the role. Candidate has a TrainingHistory attribute, containing the courses and subjects they have completed, their results, and the date completed. Now I see it as a TrainingHistoryCourse is-a Course, extended to add DateCompleted etc. but something is nagging at me to rather use something like a TrainingHistoryRecord that has-a Course. How can I further analyse this to determine which pattern to use? Then, a Role has a list of RoleTask definitions that the Candidate must be observed practising, and a Candidate has a history of RoleTaskObservation objects recording their performance at these tasks. This is very similar to the course/subject requirement and history pattern for the candidate, except for one less hierarchical level, but, a RoleTaskObservation clearly does not have an is-a relationship with RoleTask, unless I block my nose and rather use ObservedRoleTask. I would prefer to use the same pattern for both subject/course and task/observation structures, but I think that would force me to adopt a composition pattern for TrainingHistoryCourse. What is the wisdom here? Always inherit where possible and validated by a solid is-a association, or always favour composition wherever possible? 1 Client specified this to be called JobTitle, but he isn't writing the app, and a JobTitle is only one attribute of a Role. Authorization roles are handled by the DevExpress framework and its customization hooks, so there would be very little little confusion between a business Role in my domain objects and an authorization role in lower level, framework code.

  • How do I handle a user story that I complete, but with compromise and need to revisit?

    - by ProfK
    I have just fulfilled (is that a good term?) two user stories out of a new project backlog I have just built. These are user registration and password reset, both requiring mail. I need to implement a substitute mail component because my initial choice, and a normally reliable one, wasn't working. Because I was focused on delivering the user stories, not debugging the mail component, I swapped it out to deliver working code at sprint end. Do I now log a new support issue for the mailer, or 're-insert' these stories into the backlog? If I do the latter, am I not introducing too much tech detail into user stories?

  • Formalizing a requirements spec written in narrative English

    - by ProfK
    I have a fairly technical functionality requirements spec, expressed in English prose, produced by my project manager. It is structured as a collection of UI tabs, where the requirements for each tab are expressed as a lit of UI fields and a list of business rules for the tab. Most business rules are for UI fields on a tab, e.g: a) Must be alphanumeric, max length 20. b) Must be a dropdown, with values from table x. c) Is mandatory. d) Is mandatory under certain conditions, e.g. another field is just populated, or has a specific value. Then other business rules get a little more complex. The spec is for a job application, so the central business object (table) is the Applicant, and we have several other tables with one-to-many relationships with applicant, such as Degree, HighSchool, PreviousEmployer, Diploma, etc. e) One such complex rule says a status field can only be assigned a certain value if a many-side record exists in at least one of the many-side tables. E.g. the Applicant has at least one HighSchool or at least one Diploma record. I am looking for advice on how to codify these requirements into a more structured specification defined in terms of tables, fields, and relationships, especially for the conditional rules for fields and for the presence of related records. Any suggestions and advice will be most welcome, but I would be overjoyed if i could find an already defined system or structure for expressing things like this.

  • Extra blank page when converting HTML to PDF using abcPDF.

    - by ProfK
    I have an HTML report, with each print page contained by a <div class="page">. The page class is defined as width: 180mm; height: 250mm; page-break-after: always; background-position: centre top; background-image: url(Images/MainBanner.png); background-repeat: no-repeat; padding-top: 30mm; After making a few changes to my report content, when I call abcPDF to convert the report to PDF, suddenly I'm getting a blank page inserted after every real report page. I don't want to roll back the changes I've just made to remove this problem, so I'm hoping someone may know why the extra pages are being inserted.

  • How do I open a FolderBrowserDialog at the selected folder?

    - by ProfK
    I have a FolderBrowserDialog, displayed with code shown below. However, it keeps opening with 'Computer', i.e. the root of the folder tree, selected. How do I get it to open on the selected folder? var folderBrowser = new FolderBrowserDialog(); folderBrowser.Description = "Select Chase 6 Installation Folder"; folderBrowser.RootFolder = Environment.SpecialFolder.MyComputer; folderBrowser.ShowNewFolderButton = false; if (Directory.Exists(Properties.Settings.Default.defaultChasePath)) { string x = Properties.Settings.Default.defaultChasePath; folderBrowser.SelectedPath = x; } if (folderBrowser.ShowDialog(this) == DialogResult.OK) { chasePathtext.Text = folderBrowser.SelectedPath; }

  • Error handling in VS/C# build events.

    - by ProfK
    I have just written a small utility to be used in a pre-build event. The utilty works fine when run as standalone, but does nothing when used in the build event. Is there a standard way of noticing and dealing with error conditions in build events, or is that the domain of more advanced build control?

  • RadComboBox Just Freezes

    - by ProfK
    I have two examples now, my first two, where a place a RadComboBox on a web form, and populate it, but it won't drop down. I first picked this up on a big web application project, and then on a simple little web site project, for investigating this. In my sample project, it is the only control on the page besides the ScriptManager, and there are rows in the data source, and it does display the first row, but it just doesn't drop down. Any ideas on this? BTW, this is theh first time I've restored this project onto a new XP machine, where I previously was working on a Vista machine that died.

  • jQuery not loading on Master Page when the Content Page is in a child folder.

    - by ProfK
    I have a site where I am trying to implement a jQuery UI based MessageBox in my master page. Content pages are arranged accoring to business area folders, i.e. '~/Branding/Contracts.aspx'. I find that when I load such a content page, jQuery, which is referenced in the master page as below, does not load. I assume that this is because the browser is requesting 'Branding/Scripts/jQuery '. What can I do about this? I don't have the 'root' operator in a plain 'script' tag. <script src="/Scripts/jquery-1.3.2.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="Scripts/jquery-1.3.2.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="Scripts/jquery-ui-1.7.2.custom.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

  • Compile error with Nested Classes

    - by ProfK
    I have metadata classes nested within entity classes, as I have always done, but suddenly, when I deploy to my target web site, and try and view a page, I get e.g. the following compile error: CS0102: The type 'PvmmsModel.ActivationResource' already contains a definition for 'ActivationResourceMetadata' My code for this type looks like below. There is only one definition of ActivationResourceMetadata: namespace PvmmsModel { [DisplayName("Activation Resources")] [DisplayColumn("Name")] [MetadataType(typeof(ActivationResourceMetadata))] public partial class ActivationResource { public class ActivationResourceMetadata { [ScaffoldColumn(false)] public object ResourceId { get; set; } [DisplayName("Cell Phone")] public object CellPhone { get; set; } [DisplayName("Shifts Worked or Planned")] public object ActivationShifts { get; set; } } } } This is on an ASP.NET WebSite project.

  • jqModal dialog always under overlay.

    I have the following code, and am at my wit's end because the dialog always appears under the overlay. Any advice will be most appreciated: <head runat="server"> <title></title> <link href="../Styles/jqModal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> <style type="text/css"> #shift-edit-popup { display: none; } </style> <script src="../Scripts/jquery-1.4.2.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../Scripts/jqModal.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $(function () { $("#shift-edit-popup").jqm({ toTop: true }).jqmAddTrigger("#show-button"); }); </script> </head> <body> <form id="form" runat="server"> <input id="show-button" type="button" value="Show" /> <div id="shift-edit-popup"> <div> <asp:Label ID="resourceLabel" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="resourceList">Resource:</asp:Label> <asp:DropDownList ID="resourceList" runat="server" DataTextField="Name" DataValueField="ResourceId" Width="120px"> </asp:DropDownList> </div> </div> </body>

  • How do I achieve a 'select or insert' task using LINQ to EF?

    - by ProfK
    I have an import process with regions, locations, and shifts, where a Shift object has a Location property, and a Location object has a Region property. If a region name does not exist, I create the region, and like wise a location. I thought I could neatly encapsulate the 'Select if exists, or create' logic into helper classes for Region and Location, but if I use local data contexts in these classes I run into attach and detach overheads that become unpleasent. If I include a data context dependency in these classes, my encapsulation feels broken. What is the ideal method for achieving this, or where is the ideal place to place this functionality? In my example I have leaned heavily on the foreign key crutch provided with .NET 4.0, and simply avoided using entities in favour of direct foreign key values, but this is starting to smell. Example: public partial class ActivationLocation { public static int GetOrCreate(int regionId, string name) { using (var ents = new PvmmsEntities()) { var loc = ents.ActivationLocations.FirstOrDefault(x => x.RegionId == regionId && x.Name == name); if (loc == null) { loc = new ActivationLocation {RegionId = regionId, Name = name}; ents.AddToActivationLocations(loc); ents.SaveChanges(SaveOptions.AcceptAllChangesAfterSave); } return loc.LocationId; } } }

  • Select parameter not working on SqlDataSource.

    I am using the stored procedure below for the select command of a SqlDataSource, and I'm trying to pass a query string parameter, but I get this error: Procedure or function 'ActivationCampaignGetById' expects parameter '@campaignId', which was not supplied.

  • RegisterClientScriptBlock code not executing.

    - by ProfK
    I'm using the following code in an attempt to show a dialog with a list of errors on the client: if (rollout.ImportErrors.Count > 0) { ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(GetType(), "showErrors", "showErrors();", true); } The error count is non-zero and the following script block is emitted, but the script isn't executing. <script type="text/javascript"> //<![CDATA[ $("#error-report").dialog("open")//]]> </script> If I call the function directly from a Firebug console window, the dialog shows properly, so I know the dialog and my code are working. What am I doing wrong? BTW, this code is in a content page, using a content placeholder that 'injects' code into the element of the rendered page.

  • Report group headings not repeating on every page.

    - by ProfK
    I have an RDLC report with three tables and associated data sets. In my second table, I cannot get the two 'header' rows to repeat on each printed page. When viewed interactively, each table is on its own page and this isn't a problem. When I switch to print layout, e.g. my second table now spans two pages, and the second page gets no header rows. Am I missing a setting or something? ADDED: I do have the 'Repeat Header columns on each page' checked.

  • Error creating System.Type from string "System.Int32"

    - by ProfK
    On a web site I published (pre-compiled) last night, I get the following error. Before pre-compiling it, I was getting a compiler error that a User Control was not found. After compiling on another machine, and running, I get the following Parser error: "Cannot create an object of type 'System.Type' from its srting representation 'System.Int32' for the 'DataType' property" was the, now runtime, parser error I got. The offending tag is telerik:RadNumericTextBox .... DataType="System.Int32"... I emphasise again that this error only occurs on XP SP2, not on Vista and Win7. I'm off to do some Googling and issue logging at Telerik.

  • PRINT statement in T-SQL

    - by ProfK
    Why does the PRINT statement in T-SQL seem to only sometimes work? What are the constraints on using it? It seems sometimes if a result set is generated, it becomes a null function, I assumed to prevent corrupting the resultset, but could it's output not go out in another result set, such as the row count?

  • False Duplicate Key Error in Entity Framework Application

    I have an ASP.NET application using an entity framework model. In an import routine, with the code below, I get a "Cannot insert duplicate key" exception for AccountNum on the SaveChanges call, but when execution stops for the exception, I can query the database for the apparently duplicated field, and no prior record exists. using (var ents = new PvmmsEntities()) { foreach (DataRow row in importedResources.Rows) { var empCode = row["EmployeeCode"].ToString(); try { var resource = ents.ActivationResources.FirstOrDefault(rs => rs.EmployeeCode == empCode); if (resource == null) { resource = new ActivationResources(); resource.EmployeeCode = empCode; ents.AddToActivationResources(resource); } resource.AccountNum = row["AccountNum"].ToString(); ents.SaveChanges(true); } catch(Exception ex) { } } }

  • A good web 'desktop' JavaScript, CSS, or both, library that likes ASP.NET Web Forms

    - by ProfK
    I've come across, in passing, several suites of functions, widgets, frameworks, etc. that seek to produce a desktop like experience on the web. Most are JavaScript and CSS tools that handle web content on an emulation of the desktop-paradigmed UI, e.g. TreeView + Content == Explorer. Is there such a library nicely compatible with ASP.NET Forms without weeks of grief? I'll also settle for something similar, but instead of native ASP.NET, a library for any of the open source CMS products for ASP.NET. (Umbraco is at the top of my list, followed by mojoPortal. I aspire to the level of coding their creators easily demonstrate in the product. [PS, I don't want a 'desktop' ux per se, just light and simple dynamic layout for drag 'n drop, dock windows, a dock bar?.. and other fancy magic.

  • Background-color puzzle on CSS for heading/title div.

    - by ProfK
    I have the following title div setup, but when only the leftmost div has content, the red background for the title is not applied. Why is this, as the 'title' div has content, and its background should be red. Head stuff: <title>Into the Breech</title> <link href="Styles/Reset.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> <style type="text/css"> body { font-family: Arial, Sans-Serif, System; } #title { background-color: #F71831; font-weight: bold; } .title-segment-left { float: left; } </style> Body stuff: <div id="title"> <div id="menu-title" class="title-segment-left" style="width: 200px;"> Menu </div> <div id="main-title" class="title-segment-left" style="width: auto;"> Home Page </div> <div id="right-title" style="float: right;"> Provantage Media Management System </div> </div>

  • SQL Query problem: How to merge two lists.

    - by ProfK
    I have a base table of Participants and Answers, with the following structure: ParticipantId, BusUnitId, QuestionNum, Answer. In this table, QuestionNum ranges, say, from 1 to 6. I also have two other tables that sort of link QuestionNum to the actual question table, BusUnitQuestions, and ParticipantQuestions. For each QuestionNum, I must get the actual question text, based on QuestionId. BusUnitId, QuestionId ParticipantId, QuestionId Now assuming records with QuestionNum from 1 to 6. BusUnitQuestions has 3 records, so QuestionNum 1 to 3 must join to Question on the QuestionId's from BusUnitQuestions, and QuestionNum 4 to 6 must join to Question on the QuestionId's from ParticipantQuestions. I assume I need to use ROW_NUMBER() in the subquery from BusUnitQuestions to join to my answer table, but I'm lost after that. If anyone at all understands me, do you have any suggestions?
