Concurrent Affairs: Build a Richer Thread Synchronization Lock


In my last column, I showed the various thread synchronization mechanisms employed by the Microsoft® . NET Framework (see Concurrent Affairs: Performance-Conscious Thread Synchronization). I then examined the performance characteristics of all these mechanisms and determined that the Interlocked methods performed the best because the calling thread never has to transition to kernel mode.

Web-Aware Apps: Build Hyperlinks into Your Client App with the Windows Forms LinkLabel Control


LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the author covers the large number of properties that allow you to customize your controls and accurately place them. Their built-in behaviors are also discussed, along with their use in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

Test: Build Quick and Easy UI Test Automation Suites with Visual Studio .NET


The .NET Framework provides a surprising new way to quickly and easily create user interface test automation. By using objects in the System.Reflection and System.Threading namespaces, you can write automated tests in minutes instead of hours. This article walks you through the building of a typical Windows-based application that will be used as the test subject. The author then runs through the creation of a C#-based test tool that simulates clicking the test app's UI controls and checks the application's state. After the tool is built, the author explains in detail how it works so you can modify and extend it for your own use.

SQL Server: Build Apps that Provide Real-Time Information and Customized Content Using SQL Server No


The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Expressions (with Where clause?) to Build Calculated Column


Hi All-  I thought perhaps what I wanted to do was simple, but I can't figure it out, so I'm hoping someone will give me some tips.  I have a dataset coming in with multiple years of data for employment figures.  I have the year and the geography set as parameters.  the user chooses the year and the state (or multiple years and states) and can see some statistical data.  One of the columns displayed is Employment (or # of Jobs).  What I am attempting to do is add a calculated column that will show me the 1 year pct change in Jobs.  If the user selects 2009, then the report would dynamically create the change.  I thought perhaps I could create an expression for that column that looks something like below

=(sum(Fields!empl.Value) where Fields!year.Value = @year - sum(Fields!empl.Value) where Fields!year.Value = @year - 1) / sum(Fields!empl.Value) where Fields!year.Value = @year - 1

I am relatively new to SSRS - so I apologize in advance if I haven't given you the appropriate information that will allow you to help with this inquiry, but any advice that you can give me would be GREATLY appreciated.  This type of calculation is something that we want to do often.  I know that I can add a 1 year % change to my dataset and pull it through - however, I want the change to be dynami

Build great Windows Phone applications the easy way!

Introducing AgFx One of the things we’ve spent a fair amount of time on is working with various application writers, helping them build great Windows Phone 7 applications. Many of the top applications that you’ll find on Windows Phone 7 devices today spent some time in a debugger on my desktop, or Jeff’s , or another one of the folks around here. In doing this process, we saw a lot of common trouble spots for developers looking to write Windows Phone 7 applications and as I started to think more about the problem. I thought the same thing I always think: “hmmmm, how can I build a framework that will make these things easy for the developer so they can worry about other stuff!” And so it was born, and I’m currently...(read more)
