Cognos SDK Guide -- Step-by-step

We will start off by doing an overview of the Cognos SDK Guide components and then we'll do a step-by-step discussion about how to build up the code in your ASP.NET pages.

Our first detailed discussion will involve building up the code for the following ASP.NET pages that will call your Cognos SDK C# class files.

a. Default.aspx
b. Reports.aspx
c. PromptPage.aspx
d. Output.aspx

This will allow us to naturally progress into discussing the CognosSDK.cs and ExHanlder.cs class files. The CognosSDKHelper.js will be discussed in detail when we have developed our Cognos SDK solution to the point where it is ready to execute a report.

New C8 SDK Utility --- Cognos 8 Modification Check

The BI Centre C8 Modification Check provides a Cognos SDK developer with a workable C# solution that will allow you to:

· Search the Content Store for items that have been modified after a selected date value

For example, if you were looking for all reports that were modified on June 3rd, 2008 then you would select the date June 2nd, 2008. The code will search for all items that have been modified after the selected date value from the date control.

The results of the search are then rendered to a text box control.
