ASP.NET MVC 5 & Bootstrap 3 Validation Usage

25 Aug

There have been many posts out there that show various solutions to use ASP.NET MVC 5 with Bootstrap 3 style input validation.  Some of the solutions are far better than others, and others looked perfectly elegant, yet they didn't necessarily result in changes working the way that one would expect.   After trying multiple solutions I found that I was able to take one of the more elegant solutions and it was working for "success" but wasn't working for error states, so I decided to dive in an fix it for my situation.

Determining Database & Table Sizes in SQL Azure

11 Aug

As the popularity of Microsoft's Azure platform continues to rise, I find myself constantly adding new scripts to my library.  As technology continues to evolve we need to find different solutions to meet technology needs.  SQL Azure has introduced a number of changes to processes and protocols as it relates to development & support.  One of the most viewed topics on this blog is my Determining SQL Server Table Size, a quick post from 2007 after helping a co-worker solve a problem.  Fast forward 8 years and this post still sees more than 1,000 views in a month.  However, try to run that on SQL Azure and you will have an issue.  SP_SpaceUsed is not available to us on that platform!  In this post I will provide a few helpful queries to get around this limitation.
