How Do I Get the Atlas Control Toolkit to Show Up On My Visual Studio.NET 2005 Toolbox?
One of the Questions I was asked on my Article on Atlas @ Code Project at was How do you make the Atlas Controls Appear on your Visual Studio toolbox once you download them. The official documentation from Microsoft states these steps: Create a new web site from the "Atlas" web site template by opening the "File" menu, clicking "New", "Web Site...", and picking ""Atlas" Web Site" under "My Templates" Right-click on the Toolbox and select "Add Tab", and ......

Office 2007, The New Interface - Ahh! So That's what they've Been Hiding!
“Huh!?” – that’s how I reacted when I first started a Word 2007 instance early this week. Now, as you can see (from the image below) the reaction was a combination of both surprise and… more surprise. Here are some surprises (All Pleasant ones) Where did my Menu’s go? That's Gone! Yadda! Zip! Choo! Gone! Just Like That! At least in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. The Ribbon (which is like a really cool tabbed menu) is a pleasant experience to work with. Outlook ......

Dynamically Calling a Web Service Without Setting Web Reference
This Approach is particularly helpful when one needs to implement loosely coupled integration using Web Services from a Multi Tangent (Application Service Provider Model) type of front end. If each client needs to invoke a different web service and the application needs to pick the Web Service URL dynamically during runtime (depending on the client), it may not be possible to set Visual Studio.NET 2005 Web References to each and every client URL. Just finished writing an article on this @ Code Project. ......

As much as I would like to take the credit for this post, it was actually the author of this post that figured it out! If you've been trying desperately to get your hands on IE 7.0 Beta but couldn't because you were on Windows 2003 - here's how you can make the Beta work on Windows 2003 even though it's not supposed to, by design. The Procedure is pretty simple and direct. Get the beta Download Executable. Unzip the Executable using WinRAR. Navigate to the Update Folder. Backup the Update\Update.inf ......

Pushing a Geneic List of <T> to View state
Working on a DotNetNuke Project we had a requirement which was pretty .NET'ish and had nothing to do with DotNetNuke. All we wanted to do was to store a Generic list of <T> in the view state - where <T> was a XXX_Info class we usually write for DNN module. For Any information to be retained in the view state it was obviously implied that it had to be serialized. If you're looking for some fairly complicated code to manually serialize Generic Classes you probably want to go here: ......

Where did the freaking DotNetNuke Core Module Source Code go!!!???
I was in denial when this happened!!! I am going to rattle a little - if you googled to this place in search for a specifc answer (and don't want to waste time) you're probably looking for stuff way towards the end of the rattle (this post) under the head: Moral of the story. The story so far: We're using (and enhancing) DotNetNuke to develop a very complex Application Framework.
