Web Development

I have recently been working on a MVC / Bootstrap project, which is UK only. Despite adding the following code to web.config, filling out a form with a DateTime in it still failed on a parsing error.

I had to set a custom model binder, because by default MVC doesn’t look at the current […]

Summary A recent application I worked on had a large form that consisted of over 10 tabs worth of information – over 100 fields in total. This information came from another source (a tablet), and needed to be fully validated before being processed further. I searched around on the web looking for an example of […]

Just over a year ago I blogged about the problems I was having installing Umbraco via Visual Studio. At the time, I couldn’t get Visual Studio 2013 to install correctly, and Visual Studio 2012 only worked correctly when Resharper was turned off. I created quite a few sites in this manner. The original problem was […]

I have recently been working on an Umbraco project, and have evaluated Courier in order to deploy changes from an internal test site to live.

Umbraco is built on the idea of document types and templates. The document type defines the data that is to appear on a page, the template shows how that data will appear, so when you create content, it is based on a document type and a choice of templates that you are allowed to use […]

I had a problem with a C# Winforms application recently that uses EF and some ADO.NET code to access SQL/Server. The customer wanted to use Active Directory to set up the users for this system. There are two ways of doing this: Define the AD users in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), assigning these to […]

I have recently been working on an Umbraco 7 based site. Umbraco is a little strange to get used to for a developer due to the fact that it overrides some the MVC defaults, and has different types of controllers such as Surface controllers (which are used to render content) and Custom Controllers (that can […]

I am working with a Umbraco site that has labels that look like this for required fields:

The problem is the standard @Html.LabelFor does not cater for this. I had a look round the web and couldn’t find the exact code I wanted, as I really wanted to detect if the required data annotation […]
