Default Flixon Site Generator

Hi all,

I mentioned a few months back about a project that i had minor involvement with (the above site generator). Well, version 1 has now hit the shelves and is available for download. I suggest that all you guys (if you're as lazy as me), get your butts over to:

http://www.flixon.com/?page_id=4

and grab a copy. the beauty being that the tool generates all the specific DAL/BLL classes in an identical fashion to the BeerHouse. I've been using it for the past 8-10 weeks and can 'swear' by it's simplicity (which hides the real complexity) in getting the job done.

I'd appreciate any feedback that you may have in using the tool so that we can enhance (and hopefully further simplify) it's scope and use.

ok -don't all rush :)

James-

Hey. Just tried the Flixon site generator.
Am getting this message after attempting to configure the database in the first screen:

"Database entry now saved.
Restart application to use this new entry.
You will not need to do this again unless you change the database name and/or detach the database."

The app then exits. Upon restart, the original settings are still there. Obviously, I'm stuck. Any ideas?

crab - the 1st thing to do is to check that you can 'see' your database in sql server management studio (under the databases treeview eg. maybe your database is called 'myDatabase'. you'd look for that name in both the flixon app AND verify that it's in the sql mgt studio express (SMSE) as the same name). if you DO see the entry in SMSE, then just use that name in the flixon app as the database name. then just click thro' the 'next' buttons to the end to see if you get the tables listed in the very last step.

let me know how you get on. any other users who've had this issue could perhaps describe how they fixed it as it isn't something i've experienced yet.

all the best

Jimi-

Ok. I got it.

1. When i used Flixon at work, a database server I'm not familiar with showed up in the Database Server textbox. I thought this was perhaps a default you had set up in a .config file, because the name was not familiar. I may not be familiar with it because we're on a large network, and maybe it just puts the first db instance it finds in the textboxes, because when I installed Flixon at home last night, it showed my SQLEXPRESS instance just fine in the box.

2. If you click the db Path button, when you return you get the "Database entry now saved " message and the screen exits. Maybe you don't need to exit at that point? And if the entry could be displayed in the text box the next time you start Flixon, because it 's not clear what db it's planning on using. I dunno...

Anyway, I see that I was confused by the response from the UI. If you simply type into the server and dbname boxes rather than clicking the db path button, everything works fine.

Fantastic utility, by the way. Thanks so much. :)
