There seems to be a fair number of similar goals from a lot of folks. Perhaps if there was a forum where you could post code that is used to tackle a particular task, it might be of value. I realize there is a 3rd party section, but that's pretty formal, and only for polished stuff. I'm talking about people posting ideas on things like:

How you manage your lookup table content
How you populate sample data
Logging
Auditing
Manager architecture
UI generation

There are a few potential benefits here I think
a) 1 place for best of breed ideas will hopefully encourage group projects/code reviews. Perhaps yielding some code solid enough to make it an official 3rd party download
b) It would reduce the number of certain types of redundant support questions you have to deal with. It can be difficult to search for some topics given the breadth of the current forums.

You mean: you can attach a code snippet as an attachment to a forumpost?

The plan is to have that feature in the near future. It can indeed then be a good place to have people exchange small code snippets/ideas. (which is one of the reasons why small attachments should be available in the forum system).

That would be a nice piece of added functionality, but along with it, a seperate forum category just for sharing/collaborating on code components might encourage people to browse more and interact with others wrestling with the same questions. (I can see a case for putting this in the architecture forum, but the non-code threads would probably overwhelm the code-specific ones.)

The forum may not be the ideal way to manage the code itself, but I figure if the forum is successful enough that a repository is needed at some point, that it could be added later using sourceforge or something

I dunno. Obviously up to you, but thought it might help the community interact easier and maybe simultaneously reduce your support load. Regular Smiley

Repositories are harder to manage as you have to make sure no-one modifies code so others who trust the code is good will run into problems.

We're working hard to get tinyforum 2.0 done (phase 1 is teh port to .net 2.0, which is well underway, phase 2 is adding new features). When it's done, we'll migrate over and new features will be added, like this one Regular Smiley

It would be great to have a big repository of LLBLGen code snippets.

LLBLGen is one of the bigget time-saving tools I've used, but the learning curve on it was astronomical.

Often I still don't know the best way to get the results I want with LLBLGen. Sometimes I don't even have a clue how to re-create a specific, complicated SQL query using LLBLGen's predicate system.

Working code snippets from people who have already walked these paths would be great.

I'm also someone (like many) who learns better by example, not by manuals.

We tried to bundle a lot of snippets in a couple of ways.
1) in 'best practises -> How Do I' we have now compiled a long list of examples in the manual. THe manual has a lot of small snippets and with this list you can find them back easily.
2) in a couple of examples. For example the sourcecode of this forum (HnD http://www.llblgen.com/hnd ), and other examples on our website
3) in the UI templates we have in beta.

That's always a struggle and will always be a struggle I think, simply because you can do so much wicked things in some SQL dialects, it's sometimes hard to convert these to C#/VB.NET code.

Most of the time, the # of queries you run into with this isn't very high, so if you really can't find the solution, just post the question here. We can't really provide a large set of all possible SQL to LLBLGen Pro conversions simply because the # of SQL statements which can be complex is astronomically high.
