Advocate for C# .NET + 100% XSLT Processing
Hey Mark, Thats great to hear that there are others striving for a similar approach. I know that David Peterson is (did you follow the below link?). Your points are well valid, I can relate to each of them. Yes, the calendar control is a quick and easy way to display a calendar, but how easy is it to extend, scale (up or down), and style? I have been coding this way HEAVY for about 3 years now, of course it is just recently that I have switched to C# and .NET. Previously it was the marriage of ASP and XSLT. By the way, here is a rant: I can not stand the XML I am forced to work with as delivered from a DataSet in ADO.NET. It is almost useless! Give me the traditional persisted XML from the ADO recordset please. (Hello Microsoft?) This site: www.meetscoresonline.com Models: ASP + XSLT Start here (and enjoy!): www.meetscoresonline.com/documents/default_t.xsl I am an XSLT junky.. I get it. I also get C# and .NET, and I too was a EXTREMELY heavy ASP developer ( Ref: http://www.biglist.com/lists/xsl-list/archives/200309/msg00227.html ) This is mostly a shout out, and feel free to shout back. Is there such sites dedicated to this approach? Oh, I should mention that, to qualify as a C# + 100% XSLT Processing member, you must vow to never NEVER use the .NET design UI. Strip it out! Lose the page wrapped in a FORM tag! Say goodbye to the calendar control! Besides you can write a better one with XSLT!
