    In my recent article, "Is Visual Studio LightSwitch the New Access?", I looked at the suitability of LightSwitch as a replacement tool for departmental applications developed in Microsoft Access. LightSwitch is being positioned as a tool for the power user to develop Microsoft .NET Framework applications without having to face the substantial learning curve of the full .NET technology stack. I described each of the six extension types available to add the functionality to LightSwitch that an experienced .NET developer might want to use to make development in LightSwitch easier, or that a designer may want to use to build a visually appealing application.

    I have a table for project meetings (PRJ_MTGS) and I want to get the value of the meeting agenda field (MTG_AGNDA). So in this case, I just need the string value of PRJ_MTG.MTG_AGNDA not the queryable record set. I do not know how to call the method to return the value. The use case is to create a Outlook object which is working fine. But the email body needs the agenda which is a html string. I pass some data points, like the recipient, when I call the handler, but the html string would be too long for this method. myapp.ViewTSA_PRJ_MTG.CreateInvite_execute = function (screen) { window.open("../Web/MeetingInvites.ashx?recip=" + recips ); }; Consider the LINQ query in my c# class handler (.ashx.cs): namespace LightSwitchApplication.Web { /// <summary> /// Summary description for MeetingInvites /// </summary> public class MeetingInvites : IHttpHandler { public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext

    Hi, I have a LightSwitch HTML app that is using an external SQL server as the data source. Because of this all of the Validation properties are greyed out, such as Maximum and Minimum on number fields. So I tried to use Custom Validation:

    partial void MYAmount_Validate(EntityValidationResultsBuilder results)

            {

    Hi All, I have my first major LightSwitch HTML app built and am going through and cleaning up some of the minor stuff that has been irritating me. The biggest of those is that if I click on a new row in a table by clicking on an editable Text Box, that Text Box gets focus but then loses it. this is forcing my users to have to click twice to enter data into a text box. Did some reading and possibly what is going on is that the first click selects the new row and the second click actually makes that Text Box editable. Is there a way to give the Text Box back it's focus after the new row has been selected? Or just automatically give the associated Text Box focus anytime a row is selected? I did not see any events that looked like "row selected" or "on click" or anything like that. Thanks, Jeremy

    Hello, i have build a LightSwitch HTML App and want other employees in my company to be able to work with the data. So i thought it would be great if they can "export" the data to excel or csv. I found many options for that, but i am not a developer so i have issues in programming. I know it is possible to easily use power query from excel itself and consume the data over odata feed. So my question is if it is possible and when how, to export the data from lightswitch automatically to excel with a button or something like that? So that the employees not have to open excel and import the data them self? Or are there better possibilities you know that can export the data to the users desktop over a button? Thanks for your help in advance and kind regards, AHLEONIT

    New to Azure. I am trying to publish an existing web app to a virtual directory on Azure. I went to Azure portal - Application Settings, scrolled down and typed in the following virtual directory and location: Funding      site\wwwroot\funding Application is checked. I publish from VS 2103 the same as when I was on my IIS server.  I get an HTTP 500 error first.  If I hit back several times I get the following: Server cannot access application directory 'D:\home\site\wwwroot\funding\'. The directory does not exist or is not accessible because of security settings The directory \funding is not being created.  My publish looks like this: I tried changing the output path of the HTML client to \funding but that did not work either. How do I create the physical path in VS 2013 so the virtual directory will work? Thank you for your time.
