Are non-static objects thread-safe in a static-method?

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

I am using javascript and ajax to call server side mothod.  The pagemethod can only be static function in teh server side.  But i know static methods are not thread safe across simultaneous sessions.  However, what if the static method is modifying a non-static object?

for example:

public partial class default : system.web.ui.page

Hero Superman; // create an object called superman of class hero for all user sessions independently

public static int(newpowers)


Superman.powers = newpowers;  // Is this thread safe?  Will each user not accidentally get written by another user's power values?

Default Application "does not contain a static 'Main' method suitable for an entry point"

Hi, When I create a brand new WPF application project in Visual Studio 2010 and immediately try to run it, I get the error WpfApplication1.exe does not contain a static 'Main' method suitable for an entry point. App.xaml's build action is set to ApplicationDefinition. I think it's not generating App.g.cs. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Static Method System.Convert.ToDateTime() throws a FormatException on Windows7

Hello, There is a strange bug with the method System.Convert.ToDateTime(). Trying this simple statement Convert.ToDateTime("10/9/2010 17.39"); on a windows vista/xp works and the conversion is done. If you try that on a windows 7 than you get a format exception. Anybody has this problem? https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/597405/static-method-system-convert-todatetime-throws-a-formatexception-on-windows7#details Best regards. Thank you.

Cannot access a non-static method



For my WPF-application (using c#), i created a static method (public static void refreshGUI(string component, int getal)) in my "MainWindow.xaml.cs".
But i can't access members or non-static methods...?!

So i wrote this code to access everything in my namespace:

public static DomoticaApplicatie.MainWindow da = new DomoticaApplicatie.MainWindow();

 But when I use it, it give me an error

'The invocation of the constructor on type 'DomoticaApplicatie.MainWindow' that matches the specified binding constraints threw an exception.' Line number '10' and line position '172'.

Can someone help me?

Static Class for Beginners

In general, the members of a class can be accessed by instance of that class when they are in public, but there comes a situation to access or call members of a class without an instance and this can be achieved by declaring them as static

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

NUnit and public static readonly


I have an app that I am testing with NUNit.  The project im testing has several helper classes that are created as public static readonly.  When I run the NUnit tests, they all fail with the same error

Basic Instincts: Static Event Binding Using WithEvents


This month's Basic Instincts column builds upon my last three columns in which I introduced and explained the fundamental concepts and syntax associated with delegates and events. Last month I showed you how to design and write a simple class that defines and raises events.

.NET Column: Safe Thread Synchronization


By far, the most common use of thread synchronization is to ensure mutually exclusive access to a shared resource by multiple threads. In the Win32® API, the CRITICAL_SECTION structure and associated functions offers the fastest and most efficient way to synchronize threads for mutually exclusive access when the threads are all running in a single process.

How best to deal with a static C Library which is currently 32-bit?

My application is a mix of a number of different executables and DLL's that are both managed and unmanaged code.  One thing everything has in common is the licensing library which is written in C as a static library.  The managed code is gaining access to this static C library via a C++ CLI assembly which links in the library.  I would like to start offering the managed code as a 64-bit app, but I don't know exactly how to overcome the issue with the static C library and the C++ CLI assembly that consumes it...Assuming I port the static C library over so that there is also a 64-bit version, is there any way I can keep the C++ CLI code bit agnostic and link in both the 32-bit and 64-bit, allowing the Windows loader to use the correct one based on the machine it is running on?  If not, how does one go about telling the C++ CLI code to use the 32-bit library when compiling the C++ CLI to target a 32-bit process and 64-bit library when targetting a 64-bit process?Sam

Report with Static Layout (Restrict Rectangle Growth/Static Tablix size)

How do you stop a Tablix or the rectangle that is a Tablix is contained in from growing.  I have been designing a report that must have a very specific layout due to government and commericial policies.  In this report is a header on top, a footer, some other reporting data above and below a rectangle that contains a tablix region.  I need this tablix and/or rectange to stay a constant size, if there are more rows, it should start another page in the report.  Instead, it grows and pushes all the datafields below it, down and off the page.    I have also tried this with a frame.  The table must show within the frame on form only.  The frame can contain maximum of 10 rows, but the table will grow outside the frame and the items below are pushed down and off the page.  I cannot see how I can setup a page break on every 10th row on a table. Does anyone know how setup a constant size Tablix/Table in a rectangle or frame so that it will not grow beyond the specified size (so the data fields below it will not be moved) and will instead create a new page?  This is crucial to our application and we may have to switch reporting solutions if we can get this figured out. Thanks for you help!  

Cache vs Static Class

Hi All, I am sure this question has been posted many times, but have not got time to wade through. Apologies in advance! I am working on a new web application which has extremely high volumes of traffic, the application uses two large(ish) data tables (approx 15,000 rows/records each - both fairly 'wide' tables....) which are each the result of various JOINS and other intensive operations. The post query operations are unavoidable and the data structure has been optimised wherever possible. I am debating on using the Cache and CacheDependancy classes to store these tables, but fear the 'eviction' process due to the demand in traffic and server resources generally. I can certainly afford to build these tables once, on the first request (near Application Start), but should memory become scarce, do not want the cached data to be recreated during the application lifecycle and have concerns about how ASP.NET will manage demands on this data in such a crisis. For example, if during a period of time, available memory is at an all time low, I would anticipate that the CacheDependancy would keep recreating the tables for each request. (I don't know...) Note: The Cache API is not used elsewhere and the Application and Session scopes are hardly used. At present, I am using just a static class to store the two tables which works a
