    Very tidy clean code Tom, cascading deletes, love those, keeps it all clean. It looks very good, I will try it out in the next few days. One comment - would use nvarchar in case somebody wants to react in Japanese or something

    Um, my name is in your readme file - which I am flattered and glad to see that
    IN NO EVENT SHALL MARK BRACEWELL BE LIABLE

    Ha ha Lol!! ;-)

    You're cool.

    Lex,

    It's not that hard to convert the code to VB.NET. Just a matter of syntax...

    It only takes time to convert it. If you search for C# to VB.NET convertors in your favorite search site, you'll definetly find some convertors.

    Maybe I will convert it to VB.NET in a few days. Can't promise you when dough.

    Greetz,

    He Tom,

    That would be great of course. Momentarily I am still busy with the links Mark gave me concerning RSS.

    I am fighting at many (ASP) fronts at the same time, but being new at all facets almost the simplest of things (in the eyes of guys that can really shift some code, like you and Mark) ) are a hugh challenge to me.

    Nevertheless I am enjoying it very much and occasionally get something right too.

    Best regards,

    Lex

    Hi guys,

    Thank you both,

    It works like a charm. One of these days i'll try to convert the Poll_view page to VB so I can show the Poll in Default.aspx.

    Also I am looking forward to the proposed alterations. I think they make sense.

    RSS basically works (see other thread) Lots of cosmetic changes and improvements to be made still.

     

    You guys rock,

    Lex

    Hi,

    Ok, so i got a bit enthousiastic and tried to convert Poll_View from C# to VB.

    The first section gives an enigmatic (for me anyhow) response: Tried a few Convertors, but gave the same error. (probably the same Convertor......) 

    The rest it seems to translate fine (no obvious errors, but then again could'nt test it yet. Is this something you guys can easily solve?

    Thanks in advance,

    Lex

    Original code: public partial class Poll_View : System.Web.UI.Page

    Converter output:

    Class Poll_View
       Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    I sincerely apologize for being an ass,

    The whole exercise of converting Poll_Vies.aspx to VB was not necessary at all.

    Just pasted the Control  <Club:PollControl ID="PollControl1" runat="server" /> at another spot and now it works fine, must have picked an awkward spot earlier.

    Good work dude !

    I couldn't help noticing it runs blaaaazing fast !

    Kinda much faster than even on my local DEV http://localhost

    Did U do any special tune-ups, or heavy page-caching or something?

    You don't need to pass the memberid parameter in the update because you want to store the member who has created the poll.

    Tom,

    Thanks.  I have implemented your classes and aspx pages on my site.  I am having one problem with IE7.  IE7 throws this error when I click on the green rollover, Manage Polls button, on my default page when logged on as admin:

    Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

    I get this error on my local server and remote server when rendering with IE7.  Firefox does not throw this error.  I read through the forum for a fix, but mostly found the workaround of adding

    "
    <pages validateRequest="false" enableEventValidation="false" viewStateEncryptionMode ="Never" />",

    to the web config.  I have looked at a few other sites, but all recommend the same, or recommend using the same <machine> key on each server, but I am not utilizing a web farm or multitple server configuration.

    Any ideas on why I would be throwing this error?  Hope this feedback helps and thanks ahead of time for any insight you can provide, or to anyone else who may come across this thread that may of had the same error and can lend some insight.

    Hi Lex,

    That's a copy/paste error. Sorry about that. You can just change it to the following:


            if (e.NewValues["Rank"] == null)
            {
                e.NewValues["Rank"] = 10;
            }

    Just the same as in the DetailsView1_ItemInserting event handler.

    This looks nice Tom,

     

    Tried to convert the code of Pollcontrol.cs to Pollcontrol.vb but converter could not do the job.

    One of the problems:  rlb.Click += New EventHandler(SubmitButton_Click)

     

    Compilation Error

    Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

    Hi Lex,

    Sorry, I forgot to convert it to VB.NET [:S]

    But the problem here is the syntax. You need to use toe AddHandler keyword:

    AddHandler rlb.Click, AddressOf SubmitButton_Click

    I'll try to convert it to VB.NET this weekend. However it's a nice practice, if you did it yourself ;-)

    Hey Tom,

     

    Just downloaded the Poll Control and am up to step 7 of the install.  Being new to this, I am having some difficulty understanding where this goes on the page.  It seems no matter where I put it I get the following error.  Any thoughts?

    Server Error in '/prccdevsite' Application.

    The source code that generated this unhandled exception can only be shown when compiled in debug mode. To enable this, please follow one of the below steps, then request the URL:

    1. Add a "Debug=true" directive at the top of the file that generated the error. Example:

      <%@ Page Language="C#" Debug="true" %>

    </configuration>

    Note that this second technique will cause all files within a given application to be compiled in debug mode. The first technique will cause only that particular file to be compiled in debug mode.

    Important: Running applications in debug mode does incur a memory/performance overhead. You should make sure that an application has debugging disabled before deploying into production scenario.

    Hi,

    Just do what the exception is telling you:

    1. Add a "Debug=true" directive at the top of the file that generated the error. Example:
      <%@ Page Language="C#" Debug="true" %>

    or:

    2) Add the following section to the configuration file of your application:
    <configuration>
       <system.web>
           <compilation debug="true"/>
       </system.web>
    </configuration>

    Then you got more detailed information about the exception.

    I love the Poll Control.  It's awesome!!!

    I have placed this on the default.aspx page and it works great.  I would however, like to restrict it so that only people in a role = "Homeowner" can vote on the poll.  Any thoughts on the best way to do this?  Right now, as long as they are registered they can participate in the poll.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi all

    The Poll control looks great, but I am stuck at step 6 in the readme!

    6. Run the sql script
    clubPoll.sql

    I am a newbie, how do I do this?
    Where do I put the sql?
    I ran it but it put the tables in to a master.mdf located C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data

    Doing something wrong - but no clue...

    Can Anyone help?

    Make sure you connect to your clubsite database. Probably Club.mdf

     Greetz,

    Alright!  Thanks Tom for pointing me in the right direction.

    For all U others out there that are new to this, to get this to run on your PC, I did the following:
    opened up SQL Server Management Studio Express
    Connected up to my local Service
    In the right side, clicked on databases
    Right click on white area - select attach add
    find the club.mdf table and then this part is done.
    Close the app

    In explorer, find the clubPoll.sql
    double click on it - SQL Server Management Studio Express should open - connect in, and the sql should be there.
    U will see "master" in the toolbar, change this to the "club MDF" that U just added in the first step.
    hit execute and the sql will run and install Tom's tables.

    Hi, Most likely the Question object is null. But I'm sure you figured that out yourself. You said that it worked well locally. Strange because the only thing that's different probably is your connectionstring to another database. Normally, the pollcontrol works just fine when there are no questions (polls) yet... You can try to change your connectionstring to the host's database and debug it locally. Greetz, Tom

    Just include the following code in your default.aspx (html view) <!-- start of PollControl -->
    <Club:PollControl ID="PollControl1" runat="server" />
    Piece of cake! Greetz Tom http://blogs.jpworks.be/Tom

    Any ideas on securing this so that only people in a specific "Role" can vote?  Right now all they have to do is be registered.  I have the rest of the site secured so that I place people in a "HomeOwner" role before they can actually do anything on the site.  As implemented right now people can vote immediately after they register.  I'd like to keep it a little more secured to a role, but still be able to show the poll on the default.aspx page.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi all,

    I have installed the poll on my site but I have got two problems. I am using VB.Net and SQL Server 2005. Poll works fine apart from the Poll_view doesnt show the reactions and Poll_View doesnt show the list of polls? i know there is no data sorce on these pages? I think I may have to add these but tried that and think my SQL statements are incorrect.

     
    Any ideas? is it because Im using VB.NET. I can manage polls as administrator okay and vote in polls etc?

    Hello all. I just attempted to install the PollControl and ran into this error off right away:

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Line 114:            questionLabel.Style.Add(HtmlTextWriterStyle.FontWeight, "bold")
    Line 115:            Me.Controls.Add(questionLabel)
     

    Source File: d:\hosting\rhhanson63\App_Code\PollControl.vb    Line: 113

     I downloaded the control 1-10-07

    I didn't see any finally to this so I hope I can proivde a solution.
    This problem only occurs in the versions 1.0.4 when "PollControl.vb" is being used. I conpared the cs and vb files and found that the VB code is a little off.

     

    TO FIX THIS, do the following

    Around Line 104 you should find an "End If" statement, this is right after an "Else" statement

    Cut the "End if" statement

    Paste the "End If" statement above the "End Sub" around line 204

    IT should look like 

       "              adminLinkButton.Text = "Manage Polls"
                   
     Me.Controls.Add(adminLinkButton)
             
    End If"

          End if <!-- This is the newly pasted End if -->

    End Sub

    Thats it, It should work fine. The code was trying to load the Question when none was available.

    I will attempt to email Tom so he can update his downloadables.
