aspdotnet_website_programming thread: Just Got the asp vb.net book


Message #1 by "Simo Sentissi" <simo.sentissi@F...> on Wed, 22 Jan 2003 09:27:09 -0700
 

 

 

Hello 

 

I just got the book (the vb.net version) and I installed the source code
to have a look at the general looks and feel.

I faced a first problem: the assembly files -of every module- had a
hardcoded path to the snk files in some D:\damien\smthin,,,,,, I went
ahead and changed the path in every one of them.

The second problem is: I am compiling now and I get an error saying that


 

 

Access to the path "C:\wrox\ThePhileVB\Config\Polls.Config" is denied.

 

On the default page.

 

I think the code is beautiful and very elegant but can smbody tell me
what I am missing -I actually put a password on every connection string
around- but all I wanna do is just see the example working first.

 

 

Thanks

A couple of points that might help.

This type of development assumes understanding of various things like
how communication works over HTTP, how paths work and how to use
VStudio.  If you're not sure of the pre-requisites be ready to learn.

I found it most appropriate to build up the solution bit by bit.  This
way I only tested the pieces I was interested in.  One way to do that is
build your own default.aspx which emulates the design in the book.  Add
pieces when you have the foundations working.  (With this approach it
can go very smoothly!)

For the experienced this may take a few hours or a few days depending on
your knowledge and familiarity with Visual Studio.  Slow is better, as
it allows you to understand more completely.  (I expect this work can
save you months if you tackle it right.)

As you build you are likely to want your own design.  The methodical
approach allows you to redesign.

Check the archives of this list.  There is good material in there.

Hope that helps.
