The common language runtime (CLR) sits at the very heart of managed code. Indeed, it is the heart of managed code, so to understand managed code you need to understand the CLR.

Just about everyone who uses Microsoft .NET uses the Base Class Libraries (BCL).When we make the BCL better, almost every managed developer benefits. This column will focus on the new additions to the BCL in .NET 4 beta 1.

I hope this is the right place to ask this question.
I'm trying to make a control class library. I want to have a GenericHandler as a WebResource so I could call it from the web project that will use that control.
I need this handler will get parameters from the query string and return JSON data acourding to what it get in the QS.
I know how to create JS and images WebResources, so I tried the same on a generic handler I added to the class library project but all it does is return the source of the handler file and not the result.
Is what I'm trying to do possible? If so, what should I do?
Out-of-the-box, the only way of coding RS232 serial communications applications in the .NET environment is to import the outdated and somewhat limited MSComm ActiveX control. This article describes the development of a lean, multithreaded, and modern RS232 base class library in C# managed code. The library uses Platform Invocation Services to interact with the Win32 API directly. Application programmers can use the library from any .NET language through inheritance; the article explores examples written in C# and Visual Basic .NET.

There are many tricks to getting the most out of COM+, and this article offers the author's top 10. The tips cover the importance of transaction processing, the use of the COM+ catalog, and the design of three-tier distributed systems. Writing components using the correct threading model, knowing when to use compensating transactions, and the importance of stress testing early in the process also make the list. Other indespensible suggestions emphasize the importance of recognizing where an object's state is located, choosing appropriate authentication levels for COM+ applications, using Queued Components correctly, and implementing object pooling.

There's already a BCL FAQ on MSDN,
This document is a supplement to the FAQ.
1.ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ How do I compare two DateTime objects?
I've tried setting the <pages pageBaseType="DynamicWebPage" /> value in web.config, but when I response.write out the page type, I'm still getting Microsoft.WebPages.WebPage.
I'm simply trying to sub-class WebPage and add some additional functionality such as a dynamic PageData dictionary similar to Phil Haack's dynamic ViewData dictionary.
using EF3.5sp1 for a project, and I've been working around many of its
problems... as such, my entity partial classes have a lot of logic in
them for change-tracking and whatnot. Obviously, I'd like to factor
this logic out into a common base class,
but of course all my objects must derive from EntityObject. Is it
possible to tell them to derive from some class of my own invention
(which would actually likely derive from EntityObject themselves)?
I'd rather avoid editing the EDMX file unless the changes will be
safe on entity-model-update, since I'm still making changes to the
database schema in this early state of my project.
Also, is there any good workaround for the fact that the change isn't tracked when you change EntityReference.EntityKey?
I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.
I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using
MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1
This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.
I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way
When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.
Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried
