Kentico’s Universal Viewer with Custom Query

By Dustin Christians on September 22, 2016

The Universal Viewer with Custom Query comes in handy when I need to display hierarchical data from custom tables or when I need more control over the data being displayed.  You may be able to use other web parts instead of the more complicated Universal Viewer, but ultimately using this web part will make your website faster and easier to...

By Chris Hamm on August 04, 2016

Working on an international site presents unique challenges: often, sites have completely different content from one country or region to another. Sometimes that even goes beyond content to site appearance.

We have a number of clients whose websites have an international reach. That often means making sure the client is able to present a unified brand image regardless of the language the site is being viewed.

The Easy Way to Use SvcUtil.exe with a Large Xml Schema

By Cory VandenBout on February 24, 2016

If you’ve ever used SvcUtil.exe to generate even a slightly complicated WCF Service, you know how annoying it is to gather up all your imported Xsd’s and list them after the command. I have no idea why, but SvcUtil.exe is too stupid to be able to figure out relative links on your local filesystem. Take heart however, there are a few...

Kentico Modules: Adding a custom button to a Form using UIForm Extenders

By Mark Schmidt on February 13, 2016

Kentico’s Modules are very powerful. They are very extendable, and they simply make customizing Kentico a joy. Kentico also provides great documentation on how to extend the main element of a module, the UniGrid. This means you can add your own buttons, your own actions and more to the grid component.

Quick Tip: Using large SQL databases with Kentico

By Tim Stauffer on February 04, 2016

From time to time you may need to change the name of a column in your Kentico application.

Sometimes there can be small differences in the environment that result in the need for different code.

By Dustin Christians on November 10, 2015

Every time I start a new .NET web application I forget a few of the steps involved in connecting to the database and inserting my first record and I usually end up searching for the information online.
