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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
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

How to make a published infopath form static when created from the doc library?


I have an infopath form that I published to a SharePoint Document Library. The fields in the infopath form pull from a Sharepoint list. When i create a new version of this form it pulls all the current data. And the columns in the document library reflect the correct information and I save to the Doc Library.

I then edit the information in the SharePoint List. When I look back at the Document Library the columns associated with my form i just created remain the same(referencing the information from when the form was created) But when I open the form it re querys the list and shows newly updated information. The columns seem to be static, but is there anyway to make the form static when it is saved? This way I can look at a form dated a week ago and see the info from last week, Open a new form and see the current info.



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

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

A flexible charting library for .NET

ZedGraph is a class library, Windows Forms UserControl, and ASP web-accessible control for creating 2D line, bar, and pie graphs of arbitrary datasets. The classes provide a high degree of flexibility - almost every aspect of the graph can be user-modified. At the same time, usage of the classes is kept simple by providing default values for all of the graph attributes. The classes include code for choosing appropriate scale ranges and step sizes based on the range of data values being plotted. Moreover, ZedGraph is compatible with .NET 2.0, and VS .NET 2005.

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

SetUp : System.TypeInitializationException : The type initializer for 'Systems.Utils.ConstantHelpers' threw an exception.
  ----> System.NullReferenceException : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

MVC + Enterprise Library


Not a MVC specific question, but as that's what I'm doing I thought I'll post here.

While looking into the source code of an existing application, I stumbled upon MS Enterprise Library, and as I only heard about these "application block" stuff decided to look into it.

From the theory it sounds like a pretty usefull thing and it made me wonder if other's are using it succesfully along with MVC projects (I know they are not really related!)?

Pro's and Con's? 

I like the database block, as I did not get to any real database development the last 1.5 years, for instance. (Bad excuse I know).  Having an IoC thrown in there (Unity) sounds like I can pretty much stop using 3rd party libraries like I do now all over the place.

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.

Using Enterprise Library for first time



I wan to use the enterprise library for the first time. Is there any samples, quick start guide or ebook is available for a quick start and learn the basics.

I have vs2008, so which version of EL should I use?

And if somebody can just brief about Enterprise Library. Because as per my understanding, is this a mixture of design patterns and some pre-made blocks of source code.

Using a GenericHandler as a WebResource inside a Class Library



I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I'm trying to make a control class library. I want to have a GenericHandler as a WebResource so I could call it from the web project that will use that control.

I need this handler will get parameters from the query string and return JSON data acourding to what it get in the QS.

I know how to create JS and images WebResources, so I tried the same on a generic handler I added to the class library project but all it does is return the source of the handler file and not the result.


Is what I'm trying to do possible? If so, what should I do?


Thank :-)

Localization not working in class library (composite control)



I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.

I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using

MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1

This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.

I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way

When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.

Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried

  • changing the Build Action on the resource file to Content and Custom tool to GlobalResourceProxyGenerator
  • Creating a resourceManager but to no avail
