Fluent Assertions

Fluentassertions : Fluent Assertions is a set of .NET extension methods that allow you to more naturally specify the expected outcome of a TDD or BDD-style test. We currently use it in all our internal and client projects, and it is used in many open-source projects. It runs on .NET 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 (Desktop and Windows Store), Silverlight 4 and 5 and Windows Phone 7.5. And it supports the unit test frameworks NUnit, XUnit, MBUnit, Gallio and MSpec.

ide – Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 – C# navigation bar drop down menus not working – Stack Overflow

The dropdown menus in the code editor stopped working in Visual Studio 2013 for me.
The problem is a bug when using multiple monitors and a “leftmost” monitor that is not the “main” display…

The solution is quite simple for now: make your leftmost monitor the main monitor.
A bugfix is coming, included in next Visual Studio update.

Simple validation of properties in EPiServer 6 using DataAnnotations with PageTypeBuilder

In EPiServer 7 you can easily add validation to pagetype properties with DataAnnotations attribute, like this:

In EPiServer 6 you can create a custom property (involves creating some classes and messing up the db sometimes), or hook up onto global page save validation event and check if property x is valid and return e.message. (http://blog.bigfinger.se/2010/4/26/simple-validation-of-propertyvalues-in-episerver-cms-6.aspx)

Or, you can combine the usage of hooking up onto global pagedata validation with DataAnnotaions support, then you in fact
have something similar to the EPiServer 7 way with DataAnnotations support. Just go here: Validating page data with Data Annotations.
Thank you Stefan Forsberg.

the GlobalPageValidation_Validators event can be hooked onto through Global.asax.cs like this:

Also added an <br /> in case of several errors.
Validation Error message looks like this in EPiServer edit mode:

Its a bit on the simple side; remember to include which field its connected to in the errortext, no indication is shown next to the particular field.

Now you can just use DataAnnotations validation attributes, like these:


Inherit System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations  and override IsValid to do something more complicated with your validations.
