If you are looking for a component to enhance your calendar or date/time selection web page, has released a new component called RichDatePicker. It provides a point-and-click popup calendar window that allows you to select a variety of date and time appearances. This feature will resolve any issues end users might have with date/time formats and will also improverepparttar accuracy ofrepparttar 133385 dates entered into your online forms.

I couldn't keep this example any more simpler to show you how easy it is to use this component. First either copyrepparttar 133386 RichDatePicker.dll file to your application's bin folder or intorepparttar 133387 GAC. Then addrepparttar 133388 following line torepparttar 133389 top of your ASPX file.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="DP" Assembly="RichDatePicker" Namespace="RicherComponents.DatePickerControl" %>

Withinrepparttar 133390 body of your HTML addrepparttar 133391 RichDatePicker Tag as shown below. I have also addedrepparttar 133392 built in .NET calendar tag for this example.

ISAPI Rewrite

Written by Pam Dean

Have you ever wanted to manage multiple domain names under a single account in IIS (Internet Information Services)? A common way to do this is to handle it from code. There are some disadvantages when handling this directly from code. Static pages aren't redirected, non-developers will need to purchase or dust off their programming books, and evidence remains that a redirection was done.

Along came ISAPI Rewrite to solve this issue. Running atrepparttar ISAPI level in IIS, this is done before any page or code is accessed so it works equally well on static and dynamic content. It overcomes allrepparttar 133384 objections mentioned above.

With common redirection code,repparttar 133385 user would see something like this:

Withrepparttar 133386 ISAPI Rewrite component,repparttar 133387 user will see this:

Even though behindrepparttar 133388 scenesrepparttar 133389 sites can be in completely different sub-folders,repparttar 133390 person visitingrepparttar 133391 website won't have any concept of this. They will simply seerepparttar 133392 clean domain names.

ISAPI Rewrite will rewrite (kind of like a redirect)repparttar 133393 user to a sub-folder even thoughrepparttar 133394 web browser doesn't realize this.

This is done very fast and efficiently and managed by a file called httpd.ini which should be placed inrepparttar 133395 root ofrepparttar 133396 site. It controls which domain names are handled by which sub-folder by utilizing different regular expression rules.

Some tips to remember when creatingrepparttar 133397 rules.
