Editing and adding categories and subjects

Now you can’t really have a FAQ system without the ability to do a little bit of setup. The primary purpose of which is for you to be able to find your stuff later on of course.

Behind the scenes

These tabs work in generally the same way the others due. To get a good overview I would add break points into the DO_HANDLE_EVENT routines so you can follow how the code works. I would also recommend the use of a HTTP sniffer (see my Fun Friday, What’s in your bag?) that way you can get a better idea of how the ID’s for each of the elements change when inside of the MVC concept.

OK back to the code, the RSS Link page, currently I have it set as SDN RSS Link, but with some slight modifications you could easily adapt it for other RSS feeds, could you not? Let’s debug the code and see what it’s dong and see what we can do to change it.

The line we are looking for is 67, let’s set an external breakpoint (see this How to de-bug BSPs?). Now launch the program again (faq.do – F8) and go and add in a RSS feed.

Now jump over to the SDN Weblogs tab and select your newly added link, the debugger should start up and we should be able to check the contents of the entry to see where we might be able to make some adjustments.

So I will leave that to you to play around with, and if you still have trouble you can look for more from me on this topic after the Walldorf meet April 19-20, 2005.

To date I’ve only shown this application using the standard TableView sort and filter methods, but building a nice little search method might be fun? Any takers?
