If you use Microsoft Skydrive application on your Windows machine, you know that besides syncing local dedicated Skydrive folder to the cloud it allows accessing your PC files directly (without uploading them to the cloud) from remote location. Unfortunately this feature is available for desktops only, mobile apps are “by design” missing it.
But what prevents you from logging into Skydrive Website directly from a mobile Web browser?
After authorizing yourself with security code you’re in! Albeit this is not as convenient as a native app would be, but until “design” changes this approach allows you to access your PC’s files without installing any additional software on the PC and without downloading any additional app to the device.
This is a solution for specific (and maybe somewhat obscure, but it helped me, so perhaps it will be helpful to someone else) scenario for Infragistics’ WebHierarchicalDataGrid error “Async request failed“.
It could be accompanied by inner errors
Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request

Infragistics WebDataMenu comes with variety of styles and lets you specify your own. At a very basic it allows you to specify styles for normal menu items and hovered menu items:
<ig:WebDataMenu ID="xwdmMyMenu" runat="server">
<ItemSettings CssClass="MenuItem" HoverCssClass="MenuItemHover"/>
This markup can correspond to CSS classes, for example:
" (quote) --> "
' (apostrophe) --> '
< (less sign) --> <
> (greater sign) --> >
& (ampersand) --> &
And the error will disappear.
Infragistics WebTab control is very versatile and offers rich server- and client-side model. Among client-side events are
SelectedIndexChanged – fires after user has changed the tab to provide ways to interact with newly selected tab
SelectedIndexChanging – fires before user has changed the tab to provide ways to interact with currently selected tab and to give user a chance to cancel change.
Both work fine if user manually changes tabs by clicking on tab headers, but call to client-side
set_selectedIndex() function (which changes tabs programmaticaly) only fires
SelectedIndexChanging altogether. But there’s a way to make it work.
