Excentrics World - Website Maintenance

January 26, 2007 09:57 by matthaw

My hosting company installed Microsoft AJAX 1.0 RTM this evening and broke my website temporarily. I've since then rebuild my website against the RTM bits myself, however have noticed in certain areas you may need to delete your cache (or do a shift+refresh) to get the download form to work. Sorry for any inconvenience this caused, but it was out of my hands!

Released: Excentrics World Server Controls v2.0.6

January 23, 2007 23:54 by matthaw

Version 2.0.6 of Excentrics World Server Controls has just been released targeting Microsoft AJAX Extensions, RTM (didn't know it was released, visit ScottGu's blog post announcing it!) to ensure continued full compatibility as well as a few bug fixes. It should be noted with this release, the control set's compatibility layer will no longer be compatible with any prior versions of Microsoft AJAX Extensions. A breaking change from 2.0.5 to 2.0.6 is that the compatibility layer no longer includes validation controls, following suit with Microsoft AJAX.

The items that were fixed are:

  • Fixed issue where the culture, if not set, was pulling from CurrentUICulture instead of CurrentCulture for the CalendarPopup and TimePicker.
  • Fixed issue where if the culture set for the CalendarPopup or TimePicker was a neutral culture, that it would attempt to resolve a specific culture for parsing of the date & time.
  • Fixed an issue where pasting into the NumericBox in IE with valid text that had whitespace surrounding it would fail.

The updated version can be downloaded by visiting http://www.eworldui.net/Download.aspx. The official build number for this release is

I've been keeping this under wraps for about 6 months now, but since the book has been finally published & I just received my copy, I'm happy to promote the book Windows Developer Power Tools.I was asked by James Avery and Jim Holmes to be a contributor writing about Unleash It. Check out the book as it has a ton of awesome free & open source tools, and read my section (12.8) starting on page 650. Yay!
