Suggestions for handling toolbar and menus (Prism v4)

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery


I’ve been wondering for a long time how to solve this problem with toolbars and menus for my Prism based application. This will be a very large application with lots of different functionality which is why it is important to get this right.

I need a menu with common items such as Exit (File) and Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, Redo (Edit), etc. The same goes for the toolbar, where there’s a main toolbar with buttons for the same functionality.
For example the Save command has to be specific for the current active view, and only that. How would you handle this?

Now depending on the module, I need buttons that have common functionality for all views in that module. So when a view in a module gets requested, these buttons are added to the main toolbar, and when no more views from that module are active, the buttons are removed. Note that this is still the main toolbar – not a new toolbar in the same tray. How can I handle this adding and removing of buttons to the main toolbar? This main toolbar is defined in the Shell (with the buttons mentioned above).

Buttons that a very view-specific will be shown in their own toolbar so they should not be a problem.

I really hope that someone can help me see the solutions to these problems as they are a very important feature in our application.

Thank you very much!

Every self-respected programmer should include exception handling techniques. Sometimes your application will generate an error. Regardless of who was responsible for this error, the programmer or the user, it is up to the first to include the necessary exception handling techniques to keep his/her program from crashing. The .Net environment provides useful techniques for avoiding disastrous errors such as try-catch statements and user-defined exceptions.

This article uses the C# type shorthands throughout - int for Int32 etc. I hope this makes it easier for C# developers to read, and won't impede any other developers too much. It also only talks about the C# ways of declaring variables to be volatile and locking monitors. Developers using other languages can find the equivalents in their own preferred environment, I'm sure.

SQL Server 2005 Try and Catch Exception Handling

I'm pretty excited to see that there is some real error handling for T-SQL code in SQL Server 2005. It's pretty painful to have your wonderfully architected .NET solution tainted by less-than-VBScript error handling for stored procedures in the database. The big difference being the addition of TRY..CATCH blocks. Let's take a look:

Handling external C++ exceptions


Hi. I'm working in a application that uses an external .Dll developed in C++ language. According the business rule, the .Dll can throws one exception if it found a error. My question is if it's possible handle or catch a exception throwed by the C++ dll? The try/catch doesn't works. Bellow there's the code I'm using to call the C++ dll.

        public extern static IntPtr LoadLibrary(string lpLibFileName);

        [DllImport("kernel32", CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
        public extern static IntPtr GetProcAddress(IntPtr hLibModule, string procName);

        public extern static bool FreeLibrary(IntPtr hLibModule);

        private delegate void DllMethodCallBack(string param1, string param2);

        public void CallDllMethod(string param1, string param2)

Data Points: Handling Data Concurrency Using ADO.NET, Part 2


Enterprise development has been moving towards a discon-nected model in recent years and ADO. NET development is no exception. While the disconnected model of the ADO. NET DataSet offers great flexibility, that adaptability also means looser control over data updates than you get with a connected data access model.

Data Points: Handling Data Concurrency Using ADO.NET


One of the key features of the ADO. NET DataSet is that it can be a self-contained and disconnected data store. It can contain the schema and data from several rowsets in DataTable objects as well as information about how to relate the DataTable objects-all in memory.
