Consider using XmlTextReader over XmlDocument

Do you know XmlDocument or XPathDocument creates an in memory representation of the entire XML document. And this typically consume memory equivalent to three or four times of the size of the XML document on disk.

On the other hand XmlTextReader, loads only 4KB (kilobyte) buffer into memory and give better performance and scalability.

Asp.Net Performance: Use explicit cast instead of using Eval
I have come through lots of examples in the web using DataBinder.Eval but if we go and see whats happening under the hood, we will find Eval uses reflection to evaluate argument passed. <ItemTemplate><div... DataBinder.Eval(Container.D... %></div></ItemT... But explicit casting can reduce the cost of reflection. Imagine if there is 30 rows and each row has 6 Eval calls. So there will be calls to Eval 180 times. And we should take this pretty seriously. ......

Asynchronous Calls in asp.net2.0
.Net Framework 2.0 makes life so easy with asynchronous calls from pages. I remember in asp.net1.x we had to do so much to achieve the same behaviour, but we are lucky that in asp.net2.0 its very easy. Again there are more than one ways to implement asynchronous calls in asp.net2.0 and you may be asking which pattern to use. The first way is to use the AddOnPreRenderCompleteAsync... ( new BeginEventHandler(BeginAsyn... new EndEventHandler (EndAsyncMethod) );The second ......

Using Reflection to Get and Set values of Properties
The assembly that is generated for .Net Framework has metadata that describes the structure of the assembly and its classes. By using reflection we can investigate the structure of classes and the data that assembly holds dynamically at runtime. Couple of days back in this project that I am working I had to dynamically get/set values from/to properties of object. The following code will give you a flavor of what I did. To Get value=============== foreach (PropertyInfo info in myObject.GetType().GetPrope... ......

Visual Studio 2005 File > Export Template
Custom templates are sometimes very handy. For example if your pages are inherited from a custom base page. Normally you would have to tweak your pages to fit your framework. Sometimes its even boaring to go and change the new pages added to the project again and again. Say your framework require all pages to inherit from <YourProject.BaseClassNa... Then you have to change the codebehind of the new pages that you add to your project to something like this public partial class _Default1 : YourProject.BaseClassName ......

Cache Invalidation for Dynamic pages in 2.0 2.0 supports database cache dependencies. So changes in the Tables data can be notified and cache can expire. This is a very handy feature. Here is how we can do this <@ outputcache duration= "7200" varybyparam="CustomerID" sqldependency="DatabaseName... %> this means the cached page expires in 2 hours but also depends on database table. Any changes on the database table data will also invalidate the cache. Borrowed the following code from this link: Link to Improved Caching ......

Batch Compilation Asp.Net
We are aware that the complition process of Asp.Net 1.x Web page has two phases. 1. Code Behind files and other supporting classes compiled into an assembly.2. And Individual ASPX files are compiled at runtime in to temporary assemblies. This happens during the page request has been performed.So firstime when the user requests a page its slow. I have seen suggested approach like writing a precompile.aspx page which goes and fires requests [ (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebR... ] to individual ......

Deleting duplicate rows when there is no primary key
Deleting duplicate rows when there is no primary key ProblemEvery once in awhile a table gets created without a primary key and duplicate records get entered. The problem gets even worse when you have two identical rows in the table and there is no way to distinguish between the two rows. So how do you delete the duplicate record? SolutionOne option that SQL Server gives you is the ability to set ROWCOUNT which limits the numbers of records affected by a command. The default value is 0 which means ......
