Windows API Wait Functions: DynWaitList: ID-Based Windows Event Multiplexing

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Event signals are identified by indexes into an array of object handles, which is problematic with dynamic arrays where events are added or removed from the middle of the list. Here's a container class to solve the problem.

Windows Forms: Give Your .NET-based Application a Fast and Responsive UI with Multiple Threads


If your application performs any non-UI processing on the thread that controls the user interface, it may make the app seem slow and sluggish, frustrating users. But writing multithreaded apps for Windows has long been restricted to C++ developers. Now with the .NET Framework, you can take advantage of multiple threads in C# to control the flow of instructions in your programs and isolate the UI thread for a fast and snappy user interface. This article shows you how. Also, it discusses the pitfalls of multiple threads and presents a framework for safe concurrent thread execution.

WinInet: Enable HTTP Communication in Windows-Based Client Applications


The Internet provides the infrastructure for applications to communicate, and that can include non-UI communication between Win32-based applications. If you think beyond the standard browser usage of HTTP, you can use this protocol to retrieve information from Win32-based applications and save it to a Web server. After explaining how HTTP can be used in this way, this article shows how to use Microsoft SQL Server, ASP, IIS, WinInet, and Visual Basic to implement two examples. The first reports usage data-how often an application is used and by whom. The second monitors application errors and reports error details for use by helpdesk staff or engineers in the debugging process.

Windows 2000: Asynchronous Method Calls Eliminate the Wait for COM Clients and Servers


Windows 2000 is the first version of COM to support asynchronous method calls, which permit clients to make nonblocking calls to COM objects and objects to process incoming calls without blocking the calling threads. COM clients benefit from asynchronous method calls because they can continue working while waiting for outbound calls to return. Objects benefit because they can queue incoming calls and service them from a thread pool. Our SieveClient and SieveServer sample apps demonstrate how to create and use asynchronous clients and servers in COM-based distributed applications.

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this? 

Windows SharePoint Services 3 Search Event ID 2424


This error started on 29 April and I cannot get rid of it...  My search works fine, both site and people.  AD profile import works fine.  Full and incremantal crawls work as scheduled.  Just that this error keeps showing up every five minutes in one of two WFE's.  The other WFE does not receive this error


I have verified all Security Configuration/Service Accounts, verified all Services on Server/Search accounts, Stopped/Restarted all search, and verified SSP accounts.  The last thing I did was verify there was an indexer attached to the SSP...

I set the diagnostic logging to verbose and the only thing that stood out around the time of the error was

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.

SqlError: 'Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.'    Source: '.Net SqlClient Data Provider' Number: 208 State: 1 Class: 16 Procedure: 'proc_ar_GetCacheInvalidationCountersWithCount' LineNumber: 3 Server: 'SERVER'


Any suggestions?

Getting AppDomain.UnhandledException event to work in a Windows Service

Nearly every forum thread I have found on "catching unhandled exceptions in a service" seems to end up where I am.  The supposed solution is the use of the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException event.  But it doesn't work for someone, who then asks why and gets no answer.  Same for me; I can't get the event to happen.  It's as if I need the ServiceProcess version of Application.SetUnhandledExceptionMode(), which doesn't exist. For diagnosing this, I start a timer in a child object of the service and then throw an exception in the timer event handler.  Simple enough to simulate the real situation.  I have tried subscribing to the UnhandledException event in at least a half dozen locations throughout the service, from the Program that runs ServiceBase.Run() to the constructor of the object that owns the Timer, but it never catches this exception. The VS debugger recognizes that the forced exception is unhandled and takes me to the place where is thrown, letting me know it is an unhandled exception. Why doesn't my handler catch it?  Running without the debugger, the exception throws, the timer thread crashes, the service continues merrily along, and nothing gets logged anywhere.  That is NOT the result I need.  What are the people for whom this works doing that I am not doing? How can I at least get the offe

OK button click on Windows dialogue form not triggering click event

I have created an Add-In for Outlook 2003 in Visual Studio 2005. When a new message is sent and a toggle button is selected, a form that I have created will be displayed as a dialogue box, where further information can be entered. Once this information has been entered you can click the OK button and the message is sent. If you were to click the OK button with invalid data in the form, there would be a message box with an error message. This all works perfectly on my development machine but when I have packaged the Add-In and installed it on other machines it does not work. Clicking on the OK button does nothing, there is not even an error message. All the prerequsits are successfully installed and this is the only part of the Add-In that does not work. All help greatly appreciated. Thanks Nick

Sharepoint and IIS/Windows Event Logs in a single view

Hi - I'm coinsidering addng sharepoint log reading capabilities into an application I've built for reading windows and IIS logs (for more info http://logenvy.com). I know there are quite a few applications capable of reading sharepoint logs (a number are listed here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/781179/sharepoint-2007-log-viewer). Does anyone think the capability to analyse windows and IIS logs alongside sharepoint logs would be useful, or have any logging requirements not well met by the current set of tools? I'm especially keen to explore useful/interesting data visualizations on top of data logs.

Windows Keyup event is routed to next form even if the current form is closed

In a form (say FormA) i have 2 events "Keyup" for the form and button_click event for the button. I call FormA from the main form with a showDialog, after this i call another form (say FormB), it also has the 2 events. In both the form the button_click event has the logic to close the form (this.close()). Now when the FormA is opened the focus is on button, if the user presses "enter" button the button_click event is called which closes the form, the logic returns to the main form and the next line i.e. to open the FormB is executed. Now here is the wierd part, in FormB because there is a KeyUp event handler; just after instantiation of the form directly this event handler is called. I guess this is being routed from FormA. Shouldnt the FormA's keyup event be closed as soon as the form is closed?
