How to write the connection string and place it on to web.config file

Hai Friends,
Today I was thinking that many times, we are having doubt in writing the connection string in the web.config file. Whether the connection string is correct or not? Is it case sensitive? Is the User Id or userid is correct? Can we write pwd in place of password or Password?
As we can't check it in compile time, so all the error we get at the run time and then we try to replace the attributes of confile file by making the cap-locks to small or vice versa.
So I though to write an article which will be useful for we all who are working in Microsoft Technologies with the database.
As it will help to create all type of connection strings for their respective providers, so we need not to worry that it is applicable only to SQL Server.
You can go through the below link for the details with the screenshots where i have explained that how you can create and test your connection string before putting in the configuration file.
Hope it will help to all the members...
Cheers!!!

Creating Code Snippet with the Shortcut in Visual Studio 2010

Hai friends,
Today i was thinking that lot many times we gets fed-up with writing lot of duplicate code so can't we create such type of shortcut so that no need to write the whole code and we can do it with a small shortcut. Then I created a Code snippet for the header of the files which will write the below stuff for me by just writing a small shortcut FHC and there are few place holders which we need to write it and its done:
/==================================================
//                       CTSInvoiceBO.cs
//
//       This file is the code for Business Objects of CTS invoice.
//------------------------------------------------------------------------
//
//               Modification Control Log
//
// Date           By  Version  Description
// 03/18/2012  PA  1.0       Business Objects of CTS invoice
//
//
//==================================================
Then i created a snippet file and added to my visual studio IDE and now i don't need to write all this code manually. There are few place holders which we need to update and rest all code and other format will be done automatically.
Guys you can follow the below link where you can get the detailed description of how we can create this Code snippet and how can we attach it with our Visual Studio IDE and also how to create the shortcut's for it.


Hope it will be helpful for most of the programmer who work in the maintenance projects where they need to define such kind of header for the file..
Cheers!!!
