A new property has been added to the TextBox control you already know: the AutoCompleteType property. What does it do? It let's you specify the field of a user's vCard to automatically populate the TextBox. Take a look at the following form:

autocompletetype_img1.png

The user must type in the name every time she is on the form. Tedious. No longer if you assign the DisplayName vCard attribute to the TextBox:

autocompletetype_img2.png

Now, if you had typed in your display name in a different form already, it will automatically pop up as a choice when filling in the form:

autocompletetype_img3.png

The screenshot already implies that this is a cross-browser feature, the generated HTML source code does indeed confirm this assumption:

<input name="txtName" type="text" vcard_name="vCard.DisplayName" id="txtName" />

Yet another nice feature of ASP.NET 2.0 to look forward to.

Christian commented (though I'm inclined to say complained) on my post Currently downloading: Exploring ASP.NET 2.0 Using Visual C# 2005 that he cannot open the image. Well, I have to admit I didn't try one of the tools he mentioned, I stick with the #1 when it comes to ISO images: DAEMON Tools. Oh, btw, it is free.

Once again working on my backlog... interested in ASP.NET 2.0? Then watch the videos on this page. Jeff Prosise talks about Web Forms, State Management, Security, Master Pages and Site Navigation, Data Access as well as Application Infrastructure.

The BCL Team has an interesting blog post for all those of you who want to solve every string matching problem using a regular expression. Kit George reflects on when not to use RegEx to match strings.

CodeHTMLer is a Web application for creating nicely formatted (and colored) HTML from your source code (C#, VB.NET, et cetera). Aside from the functionality, the newsworthy bit is that it comes with (C#) source code, which is BSD-licensed as far as I can tell from the wording.

New in the Download Center: an ISO image of Exploring ASP.NET 2.0 Using Visual C# 2005 (CD1), a training course provided by AppDev. CD Contents include:

  • AppDev user interface
  • Video demonstrations
  • Testing
  • Full courseware on PDF covering the content on the CD

As stated in the title, I am currently downloading. So I can't yet tell what is all in there.

In my spare time (ok, some might argue about my definition of "spare time") I run the German ASP and .NET mailing lists, and my official title there is Bastard Listmaster from Hell (BLfH for short; me and my assistant have a German-language blog too).

That's not quite the point though. Both the assistant and himself are also tester on the #develop project, which led to the usual team Ts. Those were available for quite some time, but the shop language was German - but now Spreadshirt enabled us to switch to English, and the BLfH shop is now open for international business. Next task: add a cool T-shirt for .NET Golf. Oh, btw, a new hole starts today at 4pm CET, German-speaking programmers welcome!

If you ever need to explain .NET to the powers that be, download the .NET Core Brochure. This is what I call management-compatible, a developer wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

The past three days I attended the ASP / vs2005 conferences in Munich as a speaker (not including today of course, which was spent in sunshine on the slopes of the ski resort Dachstein West, gorgeous powder included after the snowfalls of last week). As advertised, my talks were about (near) future technologies: ASP.NET 2.0 Master Pages & Themes, ASP.NET 2.0 Membership & Security as well as a crash dive of VSTS Team Developer, with demo focus on Unit Testing, TDD, Code Coverage as well as Profiling.

I brought back a couple of fotos, the first two are (of course) self promotion - myself in talk #1 and #2.

Thursday evening the speakers were invited to a "VIP Dinner", and I couldn't resist to test my SPV C500 camera in low-light conditions. It did fare fairly well if subjects did not move.

The 80/20 Rule for Web Application Security is an article by Jeremiah Grossman, focused on increasing the security without touching the source code. The article identifies the "vital few" security solutions essential to protecting a website:

  • Default server error messages
  • Remove or protect hidden files and directories
  • Web server security add-ons
  • Add httpOnly flag to sensitive cookies
