Geeks With Blogs
Jonas Bush February 2006 Entries
After struggling with Atlas for awhile, we finally released our latest feature on The new “Preview“ functionality uses the Atlas UpdatePanel to display the 5 latest entries for any blog you enter. It will by default show only a summary of the item, but you can click on the “expand“ link to show the full HTML content for the entry. The UpdatePanel is surrounding a standard ASP.Net repeater control, which contains some LinkButtons. The UpdatePanel responds ......

Atlas, Viewstate, IE and FF.
In my inaugural post, I described a problem I had with a WebMethod erroring out instantly on the client, accompanied by a puzzling message in the Event Log, regarding viewstate. On a whim, on that site, I decided to “publish” the website from within VS 2005 to a separate directory. I set up another virtual directory within IIS to point to that directory, loaded up the site and IE, and all my WebMethod calls were working! From IE6, that is. From FireFox, none of the calls work on the published ......

Putting the hair back in.
In this post, I mentioned tearing my hear out because I couldn't get a gridview to work right with the update panel. Today I decided to just start on a fresh web form and everything seems to be working fine. I did learn that an updatepanel without any triggers will consume any server-side event that fires inside of it (ie, to get paging and sorting working you don't need to explicitly specify triggers to handle those events).

I have a gridview on a page, that looks like this: <asp:gridview id="gvTest" runat="server" allowpaging="true" allowsorting="true" autogeneratecolumns="false" pagesize="5" onpageindexchanging="gvTest... onrowcommand="gvTest_RowCom... onsorting="gvTest_Sorting" enablesortingandpagingcallb... <columns> <asp:boundfield datafield="Id" headertext="Id" sortexpression="Id" ......

Atlas - Jan CTP issues
I've been playing around with Atlas since the Jan CTP dropped a couple days ago. It's got some impressive functionality, as well as some (seemingly) glaring oversights. One of the things I'm trying to do is incorporate an UpdatePanel inside of a UserControl. I need the UpdatePanel to have a trigger that's on the containing page, but I can't get it to work. I've tried the following (on the containing page):protected override void OnPreInit(EventArgs e){ ControlEventTrigger t = new ControlEventTrigger(); ......
