Preparing for ASP.NET 2

Posted by: Imar Spaanjaars at Wednesday, October 13, 2004 9:35:57 PM in: Imar's Blogs

There has been a lot of buzz going on lately about the upcoming ASP.NET 2 release. Together with Visual Studio 2005 this will be a large milestone in the development of dynamic and database driven Web sites.

The betas of Visual Studio 2005 have made quite an impression so far. Both the Express versions as the full version of Visual Studio 2005 (available to MSDN subscribers only) have been around for some time. But what to do with them? It's fun to give the tool a little test drive, read about the new controls, master pages, the skins and themes engine, the cool membership and role management modules, personalization, better integration with Microsoft SQL Server and other cool new features.

How Do I Make a Full Table Row Clickable?

Posted by: Imar Spaanjaars at Sunday, July 11, 2004 4:45:22 PM in: JavaScript

Update 7/28/2010: I just wrote a new version of this article using jQuery. You can find the new article here.
