Managed Addin Framework UI Issues

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Problem #1: An add-in UI cannot be rotated, scaled, skewed because of which the UI from addin is not getting contained in the container because of which it is blocking the controls.

Problem #2: When focus shifts between controls in an add-in UI, the GotFocus and LostFocus events are neither received nor raised by the host application because of which addin UI sometimes seen on top of other CONTROLS and get refreshed on Mousemove.

Managed AddIn FrameWork Folder Removal



 I have a below scenario...

                   My application will create an AddIntoken and will host the addin in seperate process.My code looks like...

MyHostView businessProcess = aiToken.Activate<MyHostView>(aiProcess, AddInSecurityLevel.Host);

The application will keep the above hostview object returned in aninternal dictionary for calling addin methods later...

Issue : After AddInProcess shutdown, I am not able to delete the addin folder completely...I can see that there will be 2 dlls left( HostSideAdapters.dll and contracts.dll ), and both are locked by my application. 


Can anybody tell me why my application still holds lock on the above dlls even after I shutdown my addin and killed addinprocess?

DirectX 9.0: Introducing the New Managed Direct3D Graphics API in the .NET Framework


DirectX 9.0 is the latest evolution of the Microsoft 3D graphics technology for Windows. Direct3D, a major component of the DirectX Graphics subsystem, has evolved so rapidly in the last few years that the underlying programming paradigm has changed quite a bit from its origin. This article introduces the fundamental concepts of the unmanaged Direct3D architecture and illustrates how the managed Direct3D layer abstracts the unmanaged layer. Also, the author describes the Geometry, Texture, Device, and other classes and uses code from the Samples SDK.

C# and the Web: Writing a Web Client Application with Managed Code in the Microsoft .NET Framework


When the author wanted to build a middleware Web client to connect to other applications over the Internet, he realized that the XMLHttpRequest COM object was not sufficient for his purposes. In order to build a Web client using managed code, the author had to use the HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes provided by the Microsoft .NET framework. These classes are used in the sample project as a substitute for the less powerful XMLHttpRequest COM object, allowing the author to build a full-featured Web client. They also take advantage of all the benefits that the CLR and managed code have to offer.

Framework.net 3.5 and connected issues

Hello, I was toying around with some private servers, and then removed them and some software. After that, framework.net 3.5 was messed up. I uninstalled it, and then tried to reinstall it. It said I can't reinstall it without turning some things off in windows features. When I try to, it says its unable to turn them off. Dell datasafe is also having problems since then. Have done a system restore, and it won't fix it. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated!

The .NET Framework 4 is not supported on this operating system. For more information, see the <A HREF="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=164156">Readme file</A>.

Datetime issues in Entity Framework in subqueries


I'm bonking my head against the wall trying to resolve this.

I've got three tables - Widgets, Users, and Subscriptions. I have a one-to-many reference set up between Users and Subscriptions since users can have multiple subscription, and a many-to-one between Widgets and Users.

What I'm trying to do is populate a gridview of widgets. Widgets have (only) one user, and those users may or may not have a subscription that's in the same category as that widget. So I've got

Widgets has a category_ID and user_ID (the owner)

Users have a user_ID and a name

Subscriptions have an expiration date, category_ID, and user_ID

Now before in LINQ to SQL I was doing something like

from c in dataContext.Widgets
let sub_days_left = (from d in dataContext.subscriptions
  where d.category == c.category
  && d.user_table.user_ID == c.user_table.user_ID
  select d.expiration_date).Single()
select new
  days_left = sub_days_left == null ? 0.0 : (sub_days_left - DateTime.Now).TotalDays

So I'm converting this all to Entity Framework and obviously TotalDays can't be used. So I'm trying to figure out how to accomplish this. I don't want to do an .AsEnumberable or .ToList() so that I can use Linq

Trying to use use Managed Extensibility Framework to inject dispatcher into ViewModel



I found this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2354438/mvvm-best-practice-to-pass-dispatcher-to-the-viewmodel

And wanted to try, not surprisingly I did not get it to work.

Here is my code:


 public partial class MainWindow : Window, IContext
 public MainWindow()
 #region IContext Members
 bool IContext.CheckAccess()
  return this.Dispatcher.CheckAccess();
 public bool IsSynchronized
  get { return this.IsSynchronized; }
 public void Invoke(Action action)

Visio Addin - issues with install and looking for additional information


Hi Folks

I tried to install the Visio Data mining addin to view DM models.  However,  I can't find it in menus or list of addin and I am struggling to find any information on the addin in general (beyond the basic install information).  It doesn't appear that the addin has been disabled (see screenshot ), but then again I can't actually see the add in the list of addins). I am assuming, if active, it would appear in the excel ribbon like the "Datamining" or "Analyze" menus items. Any suggestions on what may have gone wrong or  links to articles would be appreciated.



Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.
