About Shrivardhan:-
I will say Shrivardhan has got most clean and developed beach in all kokan beaches we visited so far. It has been developed with seating arrangements and provision of lights on the beach. It is great experience seating at beach in the night. You will also get typical rides that you can expect at other beach like Camel ride, Horse ride, Ghoda gadi, beach bike ride. You get couple of water sports options as well - Boat ride, banana ride.

Image
TechEd is an event every developer, especially those working on Microsoft Technologies would look for. This year TechEd is on 23rd to 25th March at Banglore. With so many new products from Microsoft since last TechEd, I am looking forward for really cool stuff this year.

I expect sessions on hot cake technologies like Windows Phone, Azure. Introduction of these technologies have also resulted new architectural patterns. It would be nice to get introduced to these patterns. I expect a Azure trial period offer announcement for developers in India, as in US.

Some hands on and tips for Windows 7, Office 2010. Microsoft Certifications have been restructured in recent past. Several new certification focussing on new technologies have been added. It will be nice to have overview of that. I expect certification offers for recently introduced technologies.

A lot has been said on HTML5 and Silverlight. It will be great to hear about Silverlight focus from Microsoft guys. Silverlight team gives…
Incorrect syntax near '.' Recently I came across an issue in Sql Server 2005, while running CROSS APPLY. The error says that Incorrect syntax near '.'. I tried to figure out all syntax that I could apply but it did not resolve the issue. Actually we need to set sp_dbcmptlevel level to 90. There are good blog posts for this here and here, which can save your valuable time.

Asp.Net Save File on client machine

Recently I had a task to save file on client machine. We usually save file on server and in ASP.NET the more familiar task to save on client side was to export gridview results to excel file. This time the task was to save an image on client machine. Following is the code that I followed.<pre name="code" class="html">byte[] fileBytes = File.ReadAllBytes("D:\\Projects\\TestClientDownload\\images\\banner_ad_1.jpg");        Response.ClearContent();
       Response.ClearHeaders();
       Response.ContentType = "text/plain";
       Response.AppendHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + "banner_ad_1.jpg");
       Response.AppendHeader("content-length", fileBytes.Length.ToString());
       Response.BinaryWrite(fileBytes);
       Response.Flush();
       Response.End();</pre>

Apply CSS Class based on Browser

Do you need to modify couple of CSS class attributes depending on browser? There are various ways to achieve it. But I found this very simple approach for working on this issue.There are modifications needed at 2 places in the code. One is in the HTML body / ASPX page and other is in CSS file. Suppose there is DIV in your mark up and you want to apply different CSS class attributes if browse is IE6 / IE7/ IE8. Then just add a container div with id IE7 to this div. It can be added as this on ASPX page (Note- you can add this in Master page / specific page if you are not using Master Pages): - <!--[if IE 7]><div id="ie7"><![endif]--> <div class=”category”> This is div of interest where ie7 specific rendering should be done. </div> <!--[if lte IE 7]></div><![endif]--> The second change is in CSS file. All classes which should be handled specifically by IE7 css should be defined as #ie7. <classname>. Fo…
