Today we are going to take a look into Foursquare and, more specifically, we’re going to check out how to use it for events and conferences and uncover some of the answers to the questions that aren’t as easily avilable through the Foursquare site.

Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) has a rich data-binding system. In addition to being a key enabler for loose coupling of the UI definition from the supporting logic and data through the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern, the data-binding system has powerful and flexible support for business data-validation scenarios. The data-binding mechanisms in WPF include several options for evaluating the validity of input data when you create an editable view. Plus, WPF templating and styling capabilities for controls give you the ability to easily customize the way you indicate validation errors to the user.

To support complex rules and to display validation errors to the user, you generally need to employ a combination of the available validation mechanisms. Even a seemingly simple data input form can present validation challenges when the business rules get complex.

How to use Oracle (and other non Microsoft) SP in SqlDataSource Select command

Introduction

Using Oracle Stored Procedures in SqlDataSource Select command is not straightforward. When you return recordset from Oracle SP, you have to declare out parameter of sys_refcursor type, which is not possible without handling Selecting event on the data source.

Background

To do that, I’ll demonstrate two ways, one with simple code behind handler of the Selecting event, and the other with developing custom Parameter control, and sub classing SqlDataSource control. The latter is more complicated, but it gives you the ability to use stored procedures not only from Oracle, but from all databases which return cursors from their stored procedures.
