    In an earlier article I demonstrated how to generate SalesLogix IDs in SQL using the CLR. The method I described still does work but I have found a few issues with it since it has been in production. We'll take a look at these and how to solve them in this follow-up article.

    Generating Table IDs in T-SQL
    Generating SalesLogix IDs outside of SalesLogix can be a challenging concept. Third party applications go through the SalesLogix OLEDB provider and call the "slx_dbids" function to generate an ID for the specified table. The problem with this approach is that I don’t want to go through a third party application to insert records into my SalesLogix database. This article will look at how to generate SalesLogix table ID values using the .NET CLR in a SQL Function and call via T-SQL.

    Creating a Crystal Reports Custom Function Library
    You don't always have to massage your data with complex formulas to report on it. Complex calculations in a report can be difficult at times. Not only that, but can cause your report to run unbearably slow. Custom function libraries allow you to pull the complex calculations & functions out of the report and in to an environment where you can better control their output.

Geek speak only allowed here.

    Technical Information About the Site

    This site was developed in C# using a custom portal framework developed by Ryan Farley. The site is all managed without ever touching a page or a line of HTML. Pages are built dynamically at runtime and cached based on configuration data stored in a database for each page. New pages are added to the site by simply adding a page record in a database, along with specifying the elements (Modules) that make up the page and defining the data it is linked to, via custom web and windows applications used for site administration. UserControls (called Modules) that make up the page content are assigned to a page (and section within the page) in a manner similar to SharePoint, DotNetNuke, and other common portals. All custom Modules are complied assemblies that all inherit from the same base class to provide integration to the site framework and then wired up to their skin (a custom ascx file to provide the visual front end for the Module) at runtime when loaded on to pages.

    Articles are added to the site through a custom application which automagically formats the article text to maintain a standard look throughout the site as well as formats any contained source code samples to maintain color syntax highlighting.

    Everything used in the construction of this site is custom built. That goes for the forums as well as the applications used behind the scenes for site administration, adding and formatting articles, generating newsletters, article comment and forum notifications, and even for analysis of traffic and site statistics.
