“Index DOT Html“ a great reference site for cross browser programmers.
We are currently working on the Visual WebGui support for non IE browsers and we were striving for a good site that will help us summarize it all up. I came across this great site named “Index DOT Html“. Which is definitely the most productive comparison there is on the web. Supplying a very smart navigation system you get what you need quickly and accurately. Two thumbs up for Brian Wilson which created this site.http://www.blooberry.c... ......

ASP.NET and Visual WebGui sharing the same application context.
Visual WebGui is actually based on the core objects of ASP.NET but implementing a different pipe line. This means that a Visual WebGui application project is actually an extended ASP.NET application project to support the new pipe line. ASP.NET entities can be created the same way they are created on a regular ASP.NET application project. This also means that the Visual WebGui entities and the ASP.NET entities are sharing the same application context. When you use the Visual WebGui Context.Session ......

LINQ, totally blowed my mind
I have just read ScottGu's post about how to use LINQ and it totally blowed my mind. LINQ actually enables you to query your structures creating collections that comply to your conditions. I love the concept that you can query code/XML etc. I love the concepts that you can create collections on the fly using the new query language. Two thumbs up ......

The Visual WebGui Server capturing feature
The new Visual WebGui 1.0 (build release contains a new feature that enables capturing and replaying a Visual WebGui application. This feature can serve both as a demo application to use in sales presentations and for QA for the presentation layer. Replaying the captured application does not need the server side code base of the project and can be zipped up and sent to be checked. In order to use this feature you should add <Directory Code="Capture" Path="Resources\Capture" /> ......

Customizing the Visual WebGui design templates
Visual WebGui is fully xsl driven, which means that every component has an xsl that renders its presentation on the browser. The Visual WebGui developer uses the SDK abstraction layer defining controls and their relations, where as the rendering is done through a set of dedicated xsl templates that render the components. This means that you can take an existing application and use different xsl templates to create a different look and fell. There are a couple of ways you could change the default ......

Design differences between Visual WebGui and WinForms
The main difference between a WinForms application and a Visual WebGui application is the execution context. Visual WebGui being a platform for building web applications, is a multi-threaded environment that needs to serve many users. While a WinForms application serves a single user on a dedicated machine. A major built in difference between WinForms and Visual WebGui is the ShowModal method of the form object which in WinForms halts the execution of the code until the window is closed. In Visual ......

Visual WebGui as an abstraction layer.
I have received an email from a Visual WebGui user how wrote me the following question: “how can you say that you should not use DHTML, while Visual WebGui does not support FireFox?”. Well it is true Visual WebGui currently does not support FireFox. We are currently in the process of making it working over FireFox. The great thing about programming applications over Visual WebGui, is that you are actually using an abstraction layer. This means, that when Visual WebGui will support FireFox, ......
