Debugging Tool: Build a Logging and Event Viewing Library to Help Debug Your .NET Framework-based Ap

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Building a basic, reusable application framework can make development quicker and easier. This allows you to focus more on the problems at hand and less on the repetitive tasks involved in building any application. In this article, the author presents a framework that provides facilities to access the registry and an extensible framework for logging messages to a console window or the Event Viewer. This reusable framework can be included as a library in your projects, allowing you to display an enhanced, color-coded message log and dynamically change logging levels.

Bug Tracker: Build a Configurable Web-Based Bug Management Tool Using ADO.NET, XML, and XSLT


One of the most significant features of ADO.NET is its integration with XML. Developers can either use an ADO-like API to access the data or work directly with an XML representation of the data. This article demonstrates how both of these techniques can be used together to create Web applications that take advantage of XML standards such as XSLT. The example presented here is a bug tracking application built using C# and the.NET Framework. The development of the application covers several topics including data access using ADO.NET, the presentation of data using XSLT stylesheets, and the integration of ADO.NET with the .NET XML Framework.

Using the ConsoleTraceListener with the Enterprise Library 3.1 Logging Block


I'm new to using the Logging application block.  I think I have a pretty good handle on how things work.  However, I'm running into a problem.  I'm using the RollingFlatFileListener and I have formatted the logging template to be more like the logging we are replacing.  However, in our console apps when the ConsoleTraceListener is added it still logs it out in the default text template format.  Is there any way to get around this?  Currently it looks like I will have to create a new TraceListener called FormattedConsoleListener that allows a text formatter to be associated with it.  Is this the only way?

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc


Hi ,

I'm using Enterprise Library Logging  feature for logging. The issue i am facing is when the Logging message is too large(more than 65534 chars) ,complete data  is not logged in the Formatted Mesage column which is  of data Type nText .

I am able insert complete data if i try inserting from Sql insert Query from sql management studio. Do i need to add any attributes to data base listener or do i need to change the sp.

 Is there any way to increase the WriteLog stored proc param size in EnterpriseLibrary.Logging config file ? . Please let me know.


Thanks In Advance.

Parallel Debugging: Debugging Task-Based Parallel Applications in Visual Studio 2010


In Visual C++ 10 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Microsoft is introducing new libraries and runtimes to significantly ease the process of expressing parallelism in your code base, together with new tool support for performance analysis and debugging of parallel applications. In this article, you will learn about debugging support in Visual Studio 2010, much of which is focused on task-based programming models.

Timers: Comparing the Timer Classes in the .NET Framework Class Library


Timers often play an important role in both client applications and server-based components (including Windows services). Writing effective timer-driven managed code requires a clear understanding of program flow and the subtleties of the .NET threading model. The .NET Framework Class Library provides three different timer classes: System.Windows.Forms.Timer, System.Timers.Timer, and System.Threading.Timer. Each of these classes has been designed and optimized for use in different situations. This article examines the three timer classes and helps you gain an understanding of how and when each class should be used.

Vector Graphics: Build Flexible, Lightweight XML-Based Images for ASP.NET Using Scalable Vector Grap


Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), a W3C graphics standard built around XML, is one of several vector graphics technologies that allows fast, lightweight drawings such as charts and graphs to be rendered on the fly in an appropriate viewer. There are many advantages to such vector graphics, including conservation of bandwidth and storage media, and flexibility. This article explains these benefits and shows you how to easily add powerful, dynamic, interactive visual elements to your Web applications.

RPC and C++: Build a Template Library for Distributed Objects Containing Multiple Interfaces


Building a C++ template library for developing distributed object-oriented applications using Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) allows the programmer to design RPC applications that are composed of components that implement multiple interfaces. This article demonstrates the use of techniques such as assembly-level thunks to build machine code on the fly, and C++ features such as templates, conversion operators, virtual destructors and virtual function tables. Along the way, familiar C++ interfaces and classes are transformed into a distributed application. The benefits of using distributed objects rather than raw remote procedures, which include writing fewer lines of code, is explained.

Enterprise Library 3.1 database logging


Im new in using Microsoft Enterprise Library 3.1. Im trying to run database Logging.
I added the required configuration to the web config as mentioned in MSDN library. then I ran the script to generate logging tables and stored procedures.

I changed the formatter template to keep needed data. below is sample of my code

Dim ologEntry As LogEntry = New LogEntry()
        With ologEntry
            .Severity = Diagnostics.TraceEventType.Error
            .Title = "MSEntLib3.1"
            .AppDomainName = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
            .ProcessName = "TestFunction()"
            .Message = "Informational message"
        End With


I faced an error that there are missing paramters then I modified writeLog stored Procedure to recieve the listed above paramaters, I test it on sql server its working fine, in my web page it doesnt rais an error and not inserting any data to the log table.

How to display breakpoint and debug visual cues with custom activity designer based on WorkflowViewE

Hi,   I am developing custom activity designers based on "WorkflowViewElement" instead of "ActivityDesigner" in my xaml. It allows me to have greater control of the look and feel of the designer. However I noticed that with this approach, the breakpoint visual cue (Dark red solid circle that appears on the left side of the designer when you set breakpoint on the designer) is not visible. It works fine when you write your designed based on "ActivityDesigner". The same behavior happens to the debug visual cue when you debugging the WF. It appears as bright yellow rectangle surrounding the activity designer if you are based on "ActivityDesigner", but it is not available when your designer is based on"WorkflowViewElement". Any help is highly appreciated. Li
