Default A very basic content tool for a web site

Hi there,

I have been programming Content Management Systems for web sites in Classic ASP, using a SQL Server 2005 Express database.

I need to move away from Classic ASP and create these tools using ASP.NET. Basically, I need to write a web page form that will take user input (simple text and uploaded graphics) and write the the text to the database and upload the graphics to the server. If I can achieve those two things, I will be on my way.

I am a total beginner in .NET. I imagine that this sort of simple application has been written hundreds of times. I would like to know where I can get the source code for this (preferable in VB.NET or C#.NET), to get me up and running. I can then use this as a basis for learning, and for developing further.

Please can you tell me the fastest route to seeing the source code that will do the above. If any of you have code you can send me, I would be grateful.

Many thanks.

Steve

Hi there,

You may want to take a look at my book ASP.NET 2.0 Instant Results (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...471749516.html) with the Wrox CMS chapter in particular. It shows you exactly how do to this...

Thanks, Imar.

As I am new to .NET, please can you tell me if following this book (for 2.0) will mean I am using stuff that is superceded by 3.5? Or is it fully compatible with the latest release of .NET?

In general, please can you give me a quick sumary of the kinds of things that change in the framework between 2.0 and 3.5... do these changes amount to very much from a programming point of view?

Thanks,

Steve

Everything in the 2.0 book will work as-is in .NET 3.5. You should be able to open any application in Visual Studio / Visual Web Developer 2008 and everything should work.

Obviously, the applications are not using the latest technologies introduced in .NET 3.5 / VWD 2008, like LINQ to SQL, LINQ in general, integrated AJAX and more but you can easily upgrade the applications to make use of these new technologies. In case you're interested in learning more about ASP.NET 3.5 / VWD 2008 check out my book Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 in C# and VB: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...47018759X.html

Cheers,

Imar
