Uninstalling (and Installing) ... Posted by Christian in ASP.NET (English) at 22:31
I just wanted to try out the new IE7 Beta 2, so I first wanted to uninstall Beta 1. It took me some time to find it, but after a while I found out how: In Add/Remove Software, just click on Show Updates, and IE7 Beta 1 is an update for Windows XP ... weird.
After ignoring a frightening warning message ...
... I uninstalled the whole thing and rebooted. This worked nicely, however when I was back in the system, I got in an endless loop of popups asking me to send an error report to Microsoft.
Luckily, each of them led me some very constructive advice of what to change on my machine.
I then installed Beta 2, booted again, ignored a warning about my registry being replaced by a backup copy, et voilà, IE7 Beta 2 is up and running. The interface is a bit different from before and it will certainly take some time to get used to it. Looking forward to playing around with it and do some compatibility tests.
Update: Albert knows how to use IE7 without installing it (German only; synopsis: extract IE7 archive, create empty iexplore.exe.local file, run iexplore.exe)
Update: Jon Galloway's standalone launch script is now updated for IE7 and seems to solve the problems people were facing when using IE7 without installation.
Update 2: Installed beta 2 today, the same endless loop has gone (well, the error reporting assistant only comes up three times *sigh*)

More Consultants, More Injection: ... Posted by Christian in Security at 18:29
I have blogged about a SQL Injection posting on The Daily WTF before, but this posting beats it all. Never has SQL Injection been used in such a clever way

WinFX January 2006 CTP Posted by Christian in ASP.NET (English) at 09:02
For those who haven't seen this yet: Microsoft has released the January 2006 CTP of WinFX. You can download the Runtime components and the optional SDK from Microsoft downloads. There are even language packs for German and Japanese.
In related news, there is also a new preview version of the WinFX Development Tools that will be parts of Orcas.
One caveat, though. At least on my test system (Win XP English), the WinFX uninstall tool also removed Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition that I installed as part of Visual Studio 2005. Doh.

Preventing Form Submission with ... Posted by Christian in ASP.NET (English) at 13:56
Atlas' validation controls are quite nice, however — unlike ASP.NET validation controls — they do not integrate in the form submission mechanism. Therefore, even though some validation controls complain, a form can still be submitted.
However there is a rather simple workaround. First, update the

One of the most anticipated new features of the Atlas December CTP is the
So I sat down and played around with it and found out how this feature works. See the extended entry for a full example. Continue reading "The Atlas AutoCompleteExtender"

The trick is to manually set the type for the parameters you are sending to the server. So after creating a parameter:
Then, you load the correct type; in this case, I am using
Finally, you link the type to the parameter:
And that's it! The rest is business as usual: Instantiate the
By the way: When using the Atlas framework, you do not need this browser-specific code any more; calling .NET Web Services works in a browser-agnostic fashion here.

Express Editions als ISO Posted by Christian in ASP.NET (deutsch) at 00:41
Gerade eingetrudelt: Die deutschen Versionen Express Editions gibt es nicht nur als Web-Installer bei Microsoft, sondern seit Kurzem auch bei Codezone als ISO-Datei. Gut, zugegeben, die ISOs liegen auch bei Microsoft, aber Codezone hatte diese Info offensichtlich als erstes.
(In other news: Den WMF-Patch gibt es seit Kurzem auf Windows/Microsoft Update.)

Der Suchdienst Neomo, an dem unser guter Kollege Stefan Fischerländer beteiligt ist, wurde (mit einiger Verzögerung) auch von den Standardmedien entdeckt. Heute steht es in der Financial Times Deutschland (Vorabmeldung gestern), und SPIEGEL, BÖRSE ONLINE, impulse und andere haben die Meldung gleich mit übernommen. Herzlichen Glückwunsch!
