How to Programatically Configure WCF tracing?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

Ok, this question has been asked before, but there's not really a good answer to it that I can find. I want to enable/configure WCF tracing completely through code. I don't want to programatically generate a config file and load the section or some such thing. I want to use the System.Diagnostics and Service Model API's to configure tracing; is this possible? One older post indicates that something like this is possible only from the context of another app domain; another shows an example of how to do it by loading a configuration section. Is there some guidance on this topic somewhere? This shouldn't be too hard. Why I want to do this is irrelevant; I have a perfectly valid use case. Can it be done?

Programatically configure calendar overlays in My Site ?



I am trying to figure out if there is a way to configure calendar overlays through code.

I have a global calendar in my Team site.  I want to show the details from the global calendar onto the calender of user's My Site.  Hence user should be able to see all the events together.

I have not yet found a way to do this programatically.  Do we have any class in SharePoint library that represents the calendar overlay settings.

Any pointers ?

How to configure IIS 7.0 for ASP.NET Web Pages Razor


I'm working on a blog framework using ASP.NET Web Pages with Razor Syntax and I'm having some trouble with URL rewrites. My server is a Windows Server 2008, which runs IIS 7.0. WebMatrix is already installed on the server and .cshtml pages runs without problems, as long as they are named "index.cshtml" I don't have to supply the extension.

What does not work, is when I have URLs that does not correspond to physical files, e.g. website/post/why where the only physical file I have is post.cshtml. With IIS Express, the post.cshtml file is execute but on IIS 7.0 I get a 404 error.

Should I install the URL Rewrite for IIS 7.0? What configuration changes is required?

Visual Basic .NET: Tracing, Logging, and Threading Made Easy with .NET


Visual Basic has always been a language of innovation, but at the same time it's left its proponents wanting certain high-level features. With the upcoming version, Visual Basic .NET, the language takes advantage of the Microsoft .NET Framework to provide several new features that will be vital to developers. This article begins by discussing tracing and error logging in Visual Basic .NET. Next, you'll see how to write a Windows service without third-party help. Monitoring the file system, a previously daunting task, is also covered. Finally, the author ties these concepts together with a sample application that waits for XML files to be deposited in a directory and then imports them into SQL Server database.
