Here is something new for the ASNA Newletter, a video article. This 20-minute video shows you how to create and then use a class library, a DLL, with AVR. This video is aimed at AVR coders with little or no class library experience. It shows the basics of creating a class library and then how to use it.

ASP.NET’s GridView is one of the workhorse controls in AVR browser-based apps. It generally serves as the primary replacement for a subfile; used for navigating to a row and then selecting something to do with that row. This article shows how to fix a nagging problem with the GridView: how to make multiple columns clickable and associate actions with those columns for the corresponding row.
There is an interesting type of tool that the .NET framework makes possible because of the way it compiles and executes code. These tools are called decompilers and/or assembly browsers. When .NET source code is compiled, the compiler output isn’t directly executable machine instructions. Rather an intermediate “assembly” is produced that at runtime works with .NET’s Common Language Runtime to produce the actual executable machine instructions. Assembly decompilers/browsers let you dig into the internals of an assembly to get a closer look at what it offers. This article takes a closer look at these free tools.
Aimed at beginner-to-intermediate developers, ASNA’s Visual RPG Web class teaches how to use ASNA Visual RPG to create browser-based applications for deployment to the Internet or your local intranet. This class assumes that students know RPG, but otherwise the class teaches browser-based development from the ground up. ASNA’s Tim Daniels is the instructor for these courses.
Ever hear the phrase, “Don’t reinvent the wheel?” That little phrase is one of several principles that guide writing good code. Given the vast richness of the .NET Framework, I’ve learned this lesson many times over. I can’t even count how many times I’ve written what I thought was great piece of code only to show it to someone and then be told, “You know the .NET Framework provides that already, right?” Doh.
Visual Studio 2012 is available now and Windows 8 will be on October 26th. ASNA Visual RPG for .NET version 11.0, which works with Visual Studio 2012 is right around the corner!
