SQLSessionState, SharePoint & Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
All right I admit, that's a very abstract title for a blog post, and its not eye catchy or snazzy as something like “What to do when you get a “Object reference not set to an instance of an object. exception on a SharePoint farm that uses SQLSessionState. “ But hey its supposed to grab your attention if you are having this problem. Ok so the error is Server Error in '/' Application. Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution ......

Find the NetBios Name of a domain in AD
Its been quite a bit of struggle for me to find an accurate way of finding the netbios name of a domain from AD using System.DirectoryServices. In case you are in the same jam here how you do it. Connect to AD using the following ldap url: LDAP://CN=Partitions,CN=Con... When querying AD using the Directory Searcher object uses the following filter: netbiosname=* This should give you a record from AD containing the netbios name of the domain as the ......

Today I was looking for a tool that would generate wrappers for existing resx files (if you are wondering, yes VS 2005 has corrupted me). I did a bit of googling around and found ResxWrap on SourceForge. Actually I found Codify templates first, but that was a bit too beefy for my requirement. ResxWrap is a simple console app that will parse your resx file and generate a c-sharp wrapper. The downside is that it creates ‘string’ properties for all your resource values no matter what type ......

The MetaBlog API (Creating and Editing Posts)
I was writing an extension for my blog that uses the MetaWeblog API, so here is what I have learnt about it. It uses XML RPC for communication.

Did you know: Did you know that VWD 2008 can load class libraries as well.
Did you know that Visual Web Developer 2008 can load class libraries as well. It can with SP1 installed, and it seems a bit hidden to expose this functionality. The trick is to enable "Show Solution" in the solution pane. here is the tip on the official blog. Once you have the solution showing on Solution Explorer, you can your class library projects. Please note this requires VWD 2008 SP1 ......

No VSE WSS for VS 2008 Until Summer
Dated: March/2008 Yes as saddening that sounds, it seems it is true. Having a bit of slack time and not being able to give VS2008 a whirl earlier due to project pressures, I broke it out today all eager to gauge what elegance this IDE brings, specially since I had the need to write a test WebPart. Out of instinct I went File -> New Project -> *hold up where is the SharePoint Category. So then me thinks ah! its not built in to the product, maybe another extension for Visual Studio. So googled ......

I went through this big list of vendors providing Outlook style navigation bars. Out of the list, 3 stand out in terms of quality of their products. Telerik's r.a.d. panel DevExpress's ASPxNavigation and ComponentArt's NavBar My ultimate goal was to use the control in a webpart, hence I was using the control entirely through code (no utilization of a designer/SmartPart capabilities) Out of the 3 above, the telerik product is just exceptional in terms of ease of programability. Its a very good product, ......
