Our Little One Shows Up

I’ve been offline a lot lately preparing the arrival of our little one. Arianna Theresa was born on April 20th at 4:54pm. She was 8lbs 5oz and 21 1/2 inches long. Both mom and baby are doing just fine. I’ll be offline for the remainder of the week but figured I’d post a quick picture at http://www.jasongaylord.com/photos/Details.aspx?AlbumID=185&Page=0.

We leaned towards SQL intrusion because this database has been in use for quite some time. However, that was not the case. A new Stored Procedure that touched this table was added recently. In quick review, it didn’t appear that anything was wrong. Here it is:

Debugging ASP.NET Pages that use the AJAX UpdatePanel

I ran into an issue earlier today where I had a web control inside of an UpdatePanel that was causing some errors. So, I began looking for ways to circumvent removing the UpdatePanel and reading it at a later time. I posted a message out on the ASPAdvice.com lists and received 2 great responses. One was from Mike Campbell who pointed me to the “official” debugging page on AJAX (http://ajax.asp.net/docs/overview/ASPNETAJAXDebuggingAndTracingOverview.aspx). The other was from Wally McClure who pointed out that since the issue was server side, I had two options. First, I could have attached VS.NET to the IIS process on the remote machine (although the machine would have needed Visual Studio Remote Debugging enabled). Or, I could modify the script manager on my site. I opted for the second option. I created a Page\_Init event on my master page which is where the script manager is located. I then set the SupportsPartialRendering property to False. This allowed me to see the server side error messages.
