In the article The 80/20 Rule for Web Application Security, there is one security solution proposed to protect sensitive cookies: adding the httpOnly flag. This attribute prevents cookies from being accessed through client-side script, thus mitigating the risk of cross-site scripting.

All you have to do in ASP.NET 2.0 to take advantage of this security feature is to add the httpCookies element with the httpOnlyCookies attribute set to true to web.config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
    <system.web>
        <httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

That's it - but you are still free to override this on a per-cookie basis.

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.
