Everybody knows that reflection is slow but I wanted something more measurable than slow so I did some performance tests for the basic things I do with reflection.

Somehow I ended up designing the layout for a book

This completes the emulation of Trivial Pursuit (Spanish).

There are some screenshots of the game.

In the past weeks I've been posting some detailed information about how the ObjectDataSource works in ASP.NET 2.0.

In those posts I pointed out some limitations or problems with the ObjectDataSource control. The only real solution here its to code your own data source control but it isn't an easy task.

As I was very unhappy with the ObjectDataSource I coded my own data source control based on the ObjectDataSource but with a lot of improvements.

Take a look at it here:

Trivial Pursuit (Spanish) is not a simple rom swap. There are 40320 possible combinations to map the program ROMs.

With some patience I have reduced the number of combinations to 120.

There are some screenshots of the current progress. I'll finish emulating this next week.

Finally a PCB for Trivial Pursuit Spanish has been found. This was a MAME Most Wanted board and will be emulated soon...

Al fin se ha encontrado una placa del Trivial Pursuit en español, que era uno de los juegos más buscados del MAME. Pronto estará emulado...

This is the last part in the ObjectDataSource tutorial. It explains the importance of setting AffectedRows, optimistic concurrency, parameter merging in detail, caching and design time attributes.

There's an example where most of the ObjectDataSource capabilities are used.

I was "playing" with the ObjectDataSource's example from Part 2 when I realized I didn't enabled client callbacks for paging and sorting. I set GridView's EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks to true and tried it. To my surprise, it didn't work! I was confused because I had tried it that in the past and it worked without any problems so it made no sense that it wasn't working now.

Of course the first thing that comes to my head in those situations is: "There's a bug in GridView's implementation". The reality is that 95% of the time it's my own fault but one never finds himself guilty until proven wrong!
