ASP.NET websites do not allow you to use multiple programming languages such as C# and Visual Basic in the App_Code folder of the website project. If you are creating a C# web site and you have copied a Visual Basic source file in App_Code folder, you won’t be able to compile your ASP.NET website. Off course, if it is a small source file, then you can convert it into C# source code either yourself or by using any code converter but it is time wasting practice if you have a large file or you want to use multiple source files. In this tutorial, I will show you how you can use multiple programming languages source files in a single website project by just doing some simple modifications in the configuration settings of the website.

Creating Custom Configuration Sections in ASP.NET

Almost all ASP.NET Web Applications require some sort of configuration settings to be stored in the web.config files. These settings can be application settings, database connection strings, user authentication settings, page specific settings and so on. ASP.NET also provides very powerful Configuration API to work with configuration settings defined in web.config files. The Configuration API not only allows us to read/write settings in configuration files with ease but also allow us to define our own custom configuration sections in web.config. These custom sections are very useful in large web applications where you have a lot of application settings to store in the configuration file. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create and use custom configuration sections in ASP.NET.

Audio looping seems like a basic feature that you’ve probably come to expect from your favorite media player. Web Audio API is an API designed to manipulate and play audio assets on a Web page or application. It is an amazing foundation for games, synthesizers, audio players, trackers and more. All within the comfort of your browser. Support is excellent with Chrome, Opera, Safari and Firefox* all on board.

It probably took more JavaScript than you thought to make simple loops but with just a bit more work you can really kick things up a notch. Visualizers, volume control, special effects and so much more.

Web Services play an important role in data transport and communication between the client the server. Web services reside on the server and wait to be called by any client and most of the time these clients are written in server side technologies such as ASP.NET, PHP or JSP etc. ASP.NET AJAX provides web developers ability to call web services from the client side language such as JavaScript asynchronously to improve the user experience and to avoid full page refresh and postback. In this tutorial, I will show you how you can call an ASP.NET web service with the help of ASP.NET AJAX.

Responsive Elements makes it possible for any element to adapt and respond to the area they occupy. It’s a tiny javascript library that you can drop into your projects today. The element is aware of it’s own width. It responds and adapts to increasing or decreasing amounts of space. You can easily explicitly declare which elements you want to be responsive using a data-respond attribute.

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework designed for software and web developers who want to develop distributed service-oriented applications. WCF allows developers to create, host, consume and secure services using Microsoft platform in a most productive way so that developers can focus on their implementation rather than communication protocols and low level messaging details. In this tutorial, I will cover the basic concepts needed to work with WCF services. You will be able to create and consume services using the most commonly used features of WCF technology.

Capture Keyboard Input with Keypress JS Library

Keypress is a robust Javascript library for capturing keyboard input. It’s an input capture library with some very special features, it is easy to pick up and use, has a reasonable footprint (~9kb), and has no dependencies.

Some keys have unreliable support and should mostly be avoided. Print, Scroll Lock, Pause/Break, and Insert have unreliable keyup or keydown firing in Windows or OS X, so I suggest avoiding them, although Keypress does still allow them.

JQuery is truly a fantastic technology introduced for web developers in last few years. If you have been using it in your ASP.NET projects for some time, you may have already been playing many cool tricks on your web pages by combining it with powerful ASP.NET server side controls. It’s fairly straight forward to use JQuery with controls such as buttons, textboxes etc.. However, some of the ASP.NET controls make life very difficult due to the HTML they render on the page. One such control is ASP.NET CheckBoxList control and in this tutorial I will show you how you can use JQuery to get the selected checkbox item's labels as well as their values.
