Well just here to let everyone know a couple things.
If any of you are going to the Atlanta code camp (www.atlantacodecamp.com) or TechEd in Orlando, give me a ring. I love to get together with like minded people.
I have also written up a short article on using NativeWindow Class (Thinks Mick/Jacob). This is a wonderful class; you wouldn’t believe the hell I was going though before they brought it to my attention. Here is a link: http://aspadvice.com/blogs/jfuentes/articles/3341.aspx
I also want to rant a little, WTF is MS thinking now a days? Ok, version 2.0 of .NET is going to be out this year (we all hope) and yet another year goes by where we don’t have a decent built in reporter designer. Yea we have Crystal reports, but hey that has a license limit and after that people need to buy the license for more users (worthless). Then there is Reporting services (which in 2005 is already installed (instead of like a plugin in 2003)) but that’s a single database and not everyone has SQL server installed. So the rest of us poor saps have to use the god awful printdocument and printpreview/printsetup components (which BTW hasn’t changed one bit in 2005 (so far)). What’s the deal here? I’m writing up my own report designer for the IDE I built but it would have been nice to be able to have some better tools. End of rant LOL.
Hope everyone is doing well and I’m glad that this weekend looks to be dry (raining so much).
Also we have a local MSDN event (for any of you that might read my blogs that are local to Tallahassee, FL) got to our groups site at www.tlhdotnet.net for more information.
