ASP.NET Web Forms Model Binding – My Favorite ASP.NET 4.5 Feature by Mitchel Sellers
I have been working on this blog posting for over 2-3 weeks, by far one of the longest writes of any posting that I’ve done in the past. The reason for this is that I’m writing about a concept that you should already be aware of which is the inclusion of Model Binding Support for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.5. You can find a number of resources out there that talk about this, including this amazing tutorial series. So why do I feel the need to spend so much of my time writing about this feature? Well read on to find out!
Southern Fried DNN 2013 Presentation Materials by Mitchel Sellers
Last week I was a trainer and a speaker at the Southern Fried DotNetNuke event that was held in Charlotte, NC. This event was fantastic with a day of optional training on Friday and a series of sessions on Saturday in the format of a regular Code Camp event. As I promised the attendees of my sessions I would be posting information and assets from these presentations here on this blog. This posting is an overall aggregate with information on the two sessions and trainings, future blog postings will expand on the information contained within.
Simplifying DotNetNuke Module MSBuild Packaging With Auto Set Package Name by Mitchel Sellers
DotNetNuke module development became a lot easier when it became easy to use MSBuild to simply build your project and get a nice install-able module package in the end. I've been using this process for a number of years now, but there have always been those little things with the default templates that many have been distributing that just don't meet my needs 100%. For example a few years back I blogged about a fix for Auto Packaging Multiple Modules. This post shows a fix for one of my other biggest pet-peeves when it comes to the auto-package process and that comes from the determination of the 'PackageName' that is used to name the destination file.
