PageMethods - Type checking for your ASP.NET urls

Friday, 9 December 2005

Here's an interesting idea - setting up special methods in your ASP.NET page class to assist in generating URLS to that page. Versions for Visual Studio.NET 2003 and 2005.

PageMethods takes care of your URLs. It proposes a solution to define structured URLs for each of your pages, as well as a clean and simple way to call them.

The idea is based on strict page inputs and declarative parameter binding. With PageMethods, each page exposes a set of methods that represent the different ways to call the page. All you have to do to start benefiting from sharp URLs is to add methods to your pages, and mark these methods with attributes provided by PageMethods.

Nice device

Wednesday, 7 December 2005

During my recent visit to Sydney, I got a chance to have a look and play with my Father-in-law's new mobile phone. He bought an i-Mate JAM device.

I was quite impressed, as it is only slightly smaller than my HP iPAQ, yet it has the mobile phone functions. What I liked was that the screen size is larger than on a regular mobile phone, so you can see a bit more too. It even has a camera as well.

I think when my LG phone gives up the ghost, I might see if I can somehow get an i-Mate or something like it!
