    Great, timely, practical examples any dev will need

    Book review: 'ASP.NET 1.1 Solutions Toolkit' APress has done it again. I really enjoyed the theme and focus of this book, as it deals directly with custom control development and function-centric tools built with ASP.NET. The utilities presented are practical, timely, and those that any modern-day web programmer will need or has considered at some point. I'm didn't find the title to properly connote the content within, but it's certainly a great read. My favorite examples are the RSS Reader, Globalizable Page, and Reviewing Control, being new, up-to-date features most web sites need these days. And the Chart, Straw Poll and Search Engine examples show new takes on old standards. Many of the examples deal with pattern-based programming, which is helpful. The only two major detractions I think the book exhibits are the tight-knit binding to Visual Basic .NET for code examples and marriage to Visual Studio .NET. All in all, this is a great read that even experience ASP.NET devs should go through.

    useful components for many ASP websites

    The many authors have gathered a potentially useful array of components, designed for ASP.NET 1.1. The uses are manifold. If you are still new to ASP, the coding of the components gives many extended examples for you to learn from. More to the point, you might already be writing in ASP for your website. Thus you might want to see if any of these prebuilt components might save you some development time. The authors have tried to make components that will likely often be required in a website. Like a file uploader or RSS reader. The only component I wonder about is the Chart. It lets you add pie charts and histograms of data from a SQL Server onto a webpage. Well coded. But surely there is by now a proprietary or free package for ASP that does this charting and far more elaborate graphics. It seems such an obvious need and the .NET platform is important enough that some company would have built such a package. Then again, your graphics needs may be straightforward enough to use Chart, or a simple modification thereof
