Silverlight and ASP.NET : XAML
XAML stands for eXtensible Application Markup Language. XAML is a dialect of XML invented primarily for constructing object graphs declaratively.
Silverlight and ASP.NET : Creating a Silverlight Application
Silverlight is Microsoft's foray into the RIA arena. The idea of the RIA has been gaining ground. More and more features closely associated with desktop applications have been moving into browser-hosted applications implemented through client-side scripting, AJAX, or browser plug-ins. Silverlight enables rich, client-style features for PC clients running the Windows operating system and Internet Explorer and Firefox, and Macintosh clients using Safari.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Developing a Web Part
You have the choice of either rendering HTML or composing a Web Part from other ASP.NET controls. The WebPart includes considerable functionality for integrating with the Web Part architecture.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : The Web Parts Architecture
The Web Parts architecture serves multiple purposes. Given that the job of Web Parts is to behave as a bigger UI lever, the functional components have been broken down into overall page management and zone management
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Handlers and Session State & Generic Handlers (ASHX Files)
Generic handlers have an extension of ASHX. They're equivalent to custom handlers written in C# or Visual Basic in that they contain classes that fully implement IHttpHandler.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : HTTP Handlers - Handlers and IHttpHandler
Implementing IHttpHandler is simple—at least from the architectural standpoint. The ProcessRequest method takes a single parameter—the current HttpContext.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : HTTP Handlers - The Built-in Handlers
Remember that ASP.NET's configuration is very malleable and that you can choose to let clients see your source code by one of two means. You can remove the source code extension to ASP.NET mappings in IIS.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : ASP.NET Request Handlers
Although you haven't come across Web services yet, the WebService class implements the details required to interpret HTTP requests as method calls. Clients call Web services by packaging method calls in an XML format formalized as SOAP.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : HttpModules (part 2) - Seeing Active Modules & Storing State in Modules
HTTP modules are also very handy places to store global state for your application. The following example shows how to track the average request duration, which requires storing the duration of each request as part of application state.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : HttpModules (part 1) - Existing Modules & Implementing a Module
HTTP modules serve very much the same purpose that Internet Server Application Programming Interface (ISAPI) filters served for classic ASP—as a place to insert functionality in the request processing
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : The HttpApplication Class and HTTP Modules - Overriding HttpApplication
Overriding the HttpApplication to include your own state and event handling is a matter of adding a global application object to your site.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Diagnostics and Debugging - Error Pages
. ASP.NET now handles many facilities previously handled exclusively by IIS (although IIS brings many ASP.NET features under its auspices with version 7.0 running in Integrated mode)
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Diagnostics and Debugging - Debugging with Visual Studio
Microsoft Visual Studio provides excellent debugging support through the environment, and you can use it to watch your code execute and to step through the code one line at a time.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Diagnostics and Debugging - Application Tracing
Application tracing shows you exactly the same details as page tracing, except they're held in memory and made available rendered as a different page and through a special HTTP handler that ASP.NET provides.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Diagnostics and Debugging - Page Tracing
Turning on tracing is easy. Simply set the Trace property of the page to true. You can turn on tracing either by modifying the ASPX code directly or by setting the Trace property using the Properties window in the Visual Studio Designer.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Caching and State Management - The Wizard Control: An Alternative to Session State
One of the most common uses for session state is to keep track of information coming from a user even though the information is posted back through several pages. For example, scenarios such as collecting mailing addresses, applying for security credentials, or purchasing something on a Web site introduce this issue.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Caching and State Management - Tracking Session State
When an application needs to use session state, the runtime needs a way of tracking the origin of the requests it receives so that it can associate data with a particular client. ASP.NET offers three options for tracking the session ID—by cookies, the URL, or device profiles.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Caching and State Management - Configuring Session State
ASP.NET gives you several choices for managing session state. You can turn it off completely, you can run session state in the ASP.NET worker process, you can run it on a separate state server, or you can run it from a SQL Server database
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Caching and State Management - Session State and More Complex Data
The ASP.NET Session object can store any object running in the CLR. That goes for larger data—not just small strings or other scalar types. One of the most common uses for the Session object is for implementing features such as shopping carts or any other data that has to go with a particular client.
Microsoft ASP.NET 4 : Caching and State Management - Introduction to Session State
To understand how session state works, this exercise involves creating a Web site with a page that stores a value as a member variable and as an element of session state.
