How do I profile methods for speed?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm trying to improve the speed of a custom assembly in asp.net...

Is there a tool which will tell me how fast each method is executing?  It's someone elses code I'm inheriting and it's a HUGE mess...not sure where to really focus my attention really...

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

The Decorator Pattern & Extension Methods

The decorator pattern provides a formal way to add new functionality to an existing type, without sub-classing. First question: What is wrong with classical inheritance? In and of itself, nothing is wrong with the good old Is-A relationship. It is very common to derive a new class from an existing base class in order to override a few virtual members, and add a pinch of new functionality.

The Decorator Pattern & Extension Methods

Numerous design patterns exist in the software world today, and ultimately nothing is preventing you from making your own (if people buy into it or not is another question). Furthermore, there is no 'master list' of patterns that all developers agree upon. While this is true, if you pick up any book on the subject, you will find a set of very common patterns most programmers agree are very useful. Many of these patterns were first formalized in the seminal book on the subject, Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software (aka, the Gang of Four [GOF] book; not to be confused with the UK punk band of the same name).

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

Xml File Methods and Properties

Method and Properties of XmlTextWriter class:
The XmlWriter class is a base class that outputs an XML data structure. It has methods to sequentially write XML elements in a proper hierarchy to create an XML file or other types of output streams. The System.Xml namespace provides support for the XmlWriter. It must be imported to the ASP.NET page with the directive

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>

The XmlTextWriter

XmlWriter is an abstract class that is implemented as an extended XMLTextWriter class. The XmlTextWriter writes a sequence of XML nodes one element at a time. Output can be written to an XML file, although other streams of output data can be produced. It can create a new file or overwrite an existing file. Its non-cached writing techniques provides very fast generation of an output stream.

Profile not being save after redirect.



I am trying to save values into a Profile on Page1, then redirect to Page2 and access those values.  However, after the page redirects the profile values are blank as if they were never saved.   When stepping through the code I can see that they are being save on Page 1.

I suppose I could use session variables to store the information but I don't understand why saving the profile doesn't work.

private void PayWithPayPal()
        ProfileCommon profile = this.Profile;

        if (Global.CurrentUserName.Length > 0)
            profile = this.Profile.GetProfile(Global.CurrentUserName);
        profile.FirstName = uxFirstNameShipping.Text;
        profile.LastName = uxLastNameBilling.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineOne = uxAddressLineOneShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineTwo = uxAddressLineTwoShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.City = uxCityShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.State = uxStateShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.ZipCode = uxPostalCodeShipping.Text;

        Response.Redirect("~/expresspayment.aspx", false);

Page Methods and Yahoo UI


Hello people,
I'm constructing an application with Page Methods and YAHOO UI.
I'm Not using Update Panels because Page Methods are faster than Update Panel.

Thanks a lot.

Facebook like Profile URL with HttpModule


I am trying to make URLs for users profile pages like Facebooks e.g. http://site.com/username. I had a code snippett from a book for how to do this but when it runs it says its processing a request that will never finish. Im new with HttpModules/handlers but Ive looked over like 100 pages trying to figure this out. My code is below. Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated..

public class URLRouter : IHttpModule
/// <summary>
/// You will need to configure this module in the web.config file of your
/// web and register it with IIS before being able to use it. For more information
/// see the following link: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=8101007
/// </summary>
#region IHttpModule Members
private IUserRepository _userRepository;

public URLRouter()
_userRepository = ObjectFactory.GetInstance<IUserRepository>();

public void Dispose()
//clean-up code here.

public void Init(HttpApplication context)
context.PostResolveRequestCache += (new EventHandler(this.Application_OnAfterProcess));

Multiple web methods in one transaction


Hi everyone

Sorry I am kinda new in web services, so it may sound a bit newbish question.

We have a web service that comunicates with the database and exposes web methods that enables the application to access the database. Each method does only one operation (Insert, Update or Delete). What I need to do is create a transaction that will be consisted of multiple calls to the database, meaning multiple calls of more then one web methods. Can I do that? (I read that if the web method does not throw exception - or ContextUtil.SetAbort() is not called - the transaction will be commited automatically when the web method finishes executing, which I don't want to happen because I want to call another web method in the same transaction, and then manually commit the transaction)

Thank you in advance.
