Generic.xaml and Resources stored in App.xaml

Hi, I store things like ValueConverters or Brushes in the App.xaml, custom controls are stored in the generic.xaml. Now I'd like to get access  to those resources in the App.xaml from my custom controls in generic.xaml, but if I try to access them with {StaticResource TestConverter}, my programm seems to not find them. How can I achieve this? With ComponentResourceKeys?   Tobi  

Referencing image file stored in project resources through XAML



I'm sure this is super simple but I can't seem to figure this out.  Here is my scenario:

I have a bunch of .jpg image files that are included in a resources folder inside my project.  I want to reference them in XAML as follows:

<Image Name="SobeysImage" Stretch="Fill" ToolTip="Sobeys Image" FlowDirection="LeftToRight" Grid.Column="1" Source="Resources/sobeys1.jpg">

I get the following error message when I try to run the application:

Error 2 The file Resources\Sobeys1.jpg is not part of the project or its 'Build Action' property is not set to 'Resource'. C:\_Development\PhotoTool\PhotoTool\Window1.xaml 10 117 PhotoTool


I made sure that I set the build action of the image to Resource.


What am I missing???

How to detect and avoid memory and resources leaks in .NET application

Despite what a lot of people believe, it's easy to introduce memory and resources leaks in .NET applications. The Garbage Collector, or GC for close friends, is not a magician who would completely relieve you from taking care of your memory and resources consumption.

I'll explain in this article why memory leaks exist in .NET and how to avoid them. Don't worry, I won't focus here on the inner workings of the garbage collector and other advanced characteristics of memory and resources management in .NET.

Resources for soup-to-nuts of website development lifecycle



 I'm looking for a website, or book, or some resource that can lead me down the path from website design to implementation/deployment. I know that covers a ton of material, but I am really looking for the bullet points, or high-lights, to make sure that I think of everything. I am mostly fuzzy on security measures and deployment since I haven't been involved in those aspects before.

Background:  I have been a programmer for many years, and with a little over 3 years' experience coding websites in vb.net/asp.net with sql server. Due to recent restructuring/layoffs at our firm, I find myself in the position of lead IT person - I'm feeling a bit underqualified but I feel this is my chance to work hard and step up to it. I'm very good at vb.net, master pages, css, asp.net, sql server. I'm worried that the person who was the lead before was doing a bunch of stuff that I'm not aware of...so I need to start learning more than just the code. I don't need lessons on how to code anything...I need to learn how it all gets put together - the next step up.

thanks for any suggestions!

Code refactoring is defined as the act of changing code without changing what it does. The actual work involved in refactoring-extracting methods from oversized modules, tidying up and unifying variable names, identifying unhandled exceptions, and all the other cleanup, simplification, and standardization chores-can be daunting, indeed, and risky too.
