Web is supposed to be the platform of preference, and the latest version is supposed to be updated to current requirements, but I still have to jump through hoops to get basic things like number formatting and handling... I don't get it
Maybe I shouldn't expect things like localisation to work, even though it works in XAML with virtually no effort.
I bind a decimal value to a read only field, when I want to parse it back to a decimal it fails because I have a . instead of a , - ARGH

I have a cafe with internet connection for customers.
And I have a PHP signin page.
I want to know how can I make the connection for internet enabled when the user signin with given PIN, otherwise he'll just get my signin screen just like the hotspots available in some cafes and hotels?
I'm a web application developer, and i've been doing it for ten years using c#, the .NET framework, visual studio express and MS SQL Express on an IIS server.
Now, i've been asked to program a complex CRUDS web application using a XML native database and only free tools.
As i understand it, there is very little possibility to use the .NET framework or even IIS to build web apps with that kind of database, so i looked for other technologies.
The most well known and well documented free XML native database seems to be eXist-db, which apparently comes bundled with a web app development tool called BetterForm (based on the XForms technology if i'm not mistaken).
It also seems that, apart from XForms, the most widely used technology to build web apps with a XML native database, is java with servlets.
I have zero experience in XForms; i know some java (i'm probably a bis rusty since i've not written any java code for the last 8 years, but it's quite similar to c#), but have no experience or skill with servlets and java web apps (i just know it has to use some kind of web server with a servlet container like Tomcat - says volumes about the extent of my ignorance). I also know some php, but am not aware of the possibilities it offers to work with an XML native db.
Given that i very much like the easiness and quickness of use of the GUI and data tools of the .NET Framework and their integration in Visual Studio Express, and that i want to write as few HTML as possible, which technology and tools (emphasis on IDE - wysiwyg à la Visual Studio would be ideal) would you suggest i use.
If you make a plain html template, put a div in the body with the class mentioned, and use your class attributes like above in a style element in the header it does just what I think you want: a box with a border around it ( I did add a width and height to the div so I could see it ). First thought is that maybe a subsequent css file called for in the html file is overriding your class settings? Try placing your css file with this class above as last in your style element section of your html file and see if that changes anything.
I am creating an HTA to perform a custom backup. I would like to use an HTML readonly textarea control as a space that will receive logging output. Whenever I need to log an activity, I'd like to write a new line to the textarea which means you will see multiple lines and you should be able to scroll through them.
If I use the line below, I see it displayed, no problem.
txtLog.value = "Input has been determined to be valid - continuing"
When I try to write another line, the first one disappears and the new line is visible. I have tried to use vbCr, vbLf, and vbCrLf. If I use the line shown below, the cursor moves to the next line but the first line is erased.
txtLog.value = vbCrLf & "Output: Line2"
How do I write multiple lines to the textarea during runtime, have no lines erased and allow for a scrollbar? I do see a scrollbar grayed out so I am assuming that it will appear when the number of rows specified in the textarea tag have been exceeded.
I have done some searching but haven't found an answer so far. I'm hoping someone in this forum may be familiar with how to do this.
If you have VB and VB.NET experience then the simple answer would be to build a web application using ASP.NET. The next question would be on whether you should build it using web forms or MVC. For simple applications then web forms is ideal. For more complex applications then you could consider MVC.
It really depends on what the needs of the application are, and finding the right balance between those and your skill set.
Well, if you already know VB.NET
Then you can use it for your web development.
Of course, this implies that you have access to Windows Server that is able to run IIS.
Using VB.NET + ASP.NET to create a website, is I think the shortest way for you to have a working website
Otherwise, as you said that you are learning PHP...maybe you could use this language to build your website. The interest, is that finding inexpensive hosting opportunities running PHP is easier than for IIS/.NET.
