Auto-Start ASP.NET Applications

Scott Guthrie has an article up on his website discussing the new auto-start feature of web applications that will be available in IIS7.5 with ASP.NET 4.0.  I just learned about this last week at the Southern Fried Road Show.

Membership, Roles and Profiles

Recently i’ve been researching the default providers in .NET for Membership, Roles and Profiles and came across this code which provides a custom implementation of the above with simple db structures behind them. http://altairiswebsecurity.codeplex.com/

JQuery.UI Dialog with ASP.NET empty post values

Ran into an issue using a jQuery.UI.Dialog control on an asp.net web form today.  When defining a dialog jQuery.UI takes the dialog and appends it right before the closing </body> tag.  This is outside of the <form> tag causing any values you wanted from the form to be empty in your code-behind.

Here is the fix that worked for me:

$('#dialog').parent().appendTo('/html/body/form[0]');


This works great and the dialog now displays as expected, capturing the results in the code behind except for I originally wanted the dialog wrapped in a UpdatePanel. In order to fix this issue, I created an empty div and appended the dialog content there:

$('#dialog').parent().appendTo('#dialog_target');


Not the results i expected. When the content refreshes the dialog is messed up. The answer was to move the content panel inside of the dialog with the user control doing all the work!!!

<div id="dialog" class="ui-widget-content ui-corner-all" title="Add New Client"></div>
