Extending the Windows shell with namespace extensions allows you to create some custom functionality for Windows Explorer. One common use is to enable Explorer to present a list of items that do not exist in one real folder, but actually reside in a number of places. The view on the folder makes it look like these items are in one place, so managing them becomes easier. This article illustrates the process of creating custom shell namespace extensions using C# and the .NET Framework. The author dispels some myths about the difficulty of writing such extensions, and shows that it is easier than it was before .NET. Along the way he outlines undocumented interfaces and describes advanced techniques for consuming them in .NET.

Developers have myriad options when it comes to creating solutions for mobile devices. One of the greatest challenges facing mobile developers is finding a compact yet robust local storage solution. SQL Server CE 2.0 promises to deliver on both fronts. This new release represents a tremendous leap in terms of features and performance over its predecessor. This article will review some of the platform and tools choices developers have today. The authors will compare and contrast the significant new features in SQL Server CE 2.0 with the previous release. Following that, they will build a sample app for illustration.

Knowledge workers can understand data more effectively when raw numbers are presented in a graphical format. This is especially true when displaying database information on a Web page, where a simple chart can make the difference between a dry presentation and a vivid data source. In the past, creating dynamic, data-based charts on the fly in ASP required purchasing a third-party, image-generating COM component. Now with ASP.NET, developers can access the .NET Framework's drawing classes directly with C# to create dynamic images and charts.

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is based on an industry-wide standard for notifications used to manage objects and devices across a network. By receiving WMI events, an application can be notified of changes to data in WMI itself. This allows the developer to notify the consuming application that certain system configuration data has changed, without the application having to poll WMI continuously for this data. The author presents an explanation of the different types of events in WMI, then goes on to develop an event provider.

Microsoft .NET introduces a new suite of XML APIs built on industry standards such as DOM, XPath, XSD, and XSLT. The .NET Framework XML classes also include innovations that offer convenience, better performance, and a more familiar programming model, tightly coupled with the new .NET data access APIs-ADO.NET. XmlWriter, XmlReader, and XmlNavigator classes and classes that derive from them, including XMLTextReader and XMLTextWriter, encapsulate a number of functionalities that previously had to be accomplished manually. A discussion of the XMLDOM-Document is also included.

I'm trying to unit test a very simple html helper but keep getting the following exception:
System.EntryPointNotFoundException: Entry point was not found.
public static string AdditionalUsersDropDownList( this HtmlHelper helper, int additionalUsers )
Dictionary<int, string> items = new Dictionary<int, string>( );
items.Add( 0, "None" );
for ( int i = 1; i <= 30; i++ )
items.Add( i, i.ToString( ) );
SelectList list = new SelectList( items, "Key", "Value", additionalUsers );
return helper.DropDownList( "AdditionalUsers", list );
First I am newbie using EF - so sorry on this basic question
I have a Project Table that relate to Company Table
When I Map with EF I Do not have property of CompanyId in the Project Object
But I have related Company Object
Project p = new Project();
p.CompanyId ÃÂ¨ does not exist!
When I try addingit myself I get this error:
If I need just the Company id, and I don't want get it like
p.Company.CompanyId - because than the application try connect again to the DB and I don't want this, because I need just the CompanyId.
What the best regular way to get it?
