Offline/Online

P: n/a
Hi

I need to write a vb2005/sql server2005 app running over a LAN. Some users
who use laptop need to have the app to have an offline mode for when they
are away. I am new to net and would like to know what will be the
differences in the online-only and online/offline versions of the app? As
not all users need it, is it possible to configure the app so it knows when
it is in desktop (online-only) or laptop modes?

Thanks

Regards

Take a look at the Smart Client Offline Application Block from the MSDN
Patterns & Practices. If you want your application to have online and
offline capability, then this will do the trick:
