Created another blog

I want to blog my technical journey now.....

Some good articles in .Net for .net programmer

I have just read/surf few articles with some source code. I found it somewhat interesting and helpful to common .Net developer.

These articles I have composed in messages which I have posted on AhmedabadUserGroup.

Composition of those articles,

1- How to online validate e-mail id

This link have a solution with source code for 3 type of mail verification and validation
1. Mail syntax checking
2. Validating via SMTP Network Connection
3. Validating via SMTP Handshakes

I think it will solve your all problem regarding mail validation/verification by all means
2- Common 10 Datagrid-mistakes

A good link on common datagrid mistakes on MSDN

Scenarios covered by this article are,
1. Creating Tabular Data by Not Using the Datagrid When You Could Be

2. Forgetting to Check for IsPostBack in the Page_Load Event

3. Sticking with Auto-Generated Columns When Your Circumstances Require More Flexibility

4. Trying to Refer to a Control Inside a Datagrid Item by its ID Alone

5. Not Using Paging when You Could (or Should!)

6. Forgetting to Perform a .DataBind() Call on each Datagrid Event that Causes a Postback

7. Dynamically Creating Datagrid Controls or Columns within a Datagrid at Runtime when it isn't Necessary

8. Enduring an Over-sized ViewState

9. When Using the ItemDataBound or ItemCreated Events, Forgetting to Check for the Appropriate ListItemType

10. Overusing the Datagrid, when You Need More Control Over the Resulting HTML, a Repeater may be a Better Choice
