fireside reading

I'm working on learning

I'd like to use C# although I could settle for if i have to.

My problem is all the books I find assume the reader already knows or C#. I don't.

I've got in a nutshell, programming, essential with examples in C#. essential is good if you know c# but it doesn't explain the c# code or the syntax.

C# books assume i'm going to be writing desktop apps. I'm not.

Is there a good book that also teaches C# or alongside

thanks. We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.

Postback Invalid   (335 Views)
Hi ,Hope is well! I have a problem displaying the tree view on Pocket Internet Explorer. The tree displays and works fine using desktop browser, and expands nodes perfectly. The first time i load it up on Pocket Internet Explorer it displays fine, but then when i click a node i get the following error.Invalid postback or callback argument. Event validation is enabled using in configuration or in a page. For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them. If the data is valid .... blah blah blah.Now if i change the enableEventValidation property, then the error doesnt occur, but the tree node doesnt expand.Does anyone know how to fix this Is it something to do with Pocket Internet ExplorerThe code for my page is below :Can anyone get it to work I am using Windows Mobile 5 Emulator through Visual Studio title
share session data contents between two aplications   (362 Views)
There are two apps running on differnet servers, both of them in local intranet.Both use the same model for something, making use of Session["variable"] to store some stuff.What I want is to enable keeping the same session data between two apps, e.g. I browse app1, session variables change and if I go to app2 from app1, session data is taken from app1's session.Is there any way to do that apart from passing the variables in query string in the links between apps, etc I wonder if there's some pre-made framework to achieve that or something..
