Perfect Full Page Background Image By Chris Coyier On This post was originally published on August 21, 2009 and is now updated as it has been entirely revised. Both original methods are removed and now replaced by four new methods. The goal here is a background image on a website that covers the entire browser window at all times. Let's put some specifics on it: Fills entire page with image, no white spaceScales image as neededRetains image proportions (aspect ratio)Image is centered on pageDoes not cause scrollbarsAs cross-browser compatible as possibleIsn't some fancy shenanigans like Flash

Chapter 28: Designing SharePoint LOB Applications For more details of the topics covered in this guide, see Contents of the Guide. In this chapter, you will learn about the architecture for a typical SharePoint line-of-business (LOB) application, and the components it contains. You will see the key scenarios and the important design considerations for SharePoint LOB applications. You will also learn about deployment, key patterns, and the technology considerations for designing SharePoint LOB applications. Microsoft Windows Server® is the core operating system on which SharePoint LOB applications run. SharePoint integrates tightly with the broader Microsoft platform, using Internet Information Services (IIS) as a front-end Web server to host Web sites, and SQL Server as the networked store for site definitions, content type definitions, published content, and configuration data.

HTML 5 Reference It is useful to make a distinction between the vocabulary of an HTML document—the elements and attributes, and their meanings—and the syntax in which it is written. HTML has a defined set of elements and attributes which can be used in a document; each designed for a specific purpose with their own meaning. Consider this set of elements to be analogous to the list of words in a dictionary. This includes elements for headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, links, form controls and many other features. Introduction to CSS3 Animations <title>Introduction to CSS3 Animations</title> pre { white-space: pre-wrap; Developer's Guide to Microsoft Prism patterns & practices Developer Center February 2012 Prism provides guidance designed to help you more easily design and build rich, flexible, and easily maintained Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) desktop applications, Silverlight Rich Internet Applications (RIAs), and Windows Phone 7 applications. Using design patterns that embody important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling, Prism helps you to design and build applications using loosely coupled components that can evolve independently but which can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the overall application. These types of applications are known as composite applications. Prism is intended for software developers building WPF or Silverlight applications that typically feature multiple screens, rich user interaction and data visualization, and that embody significant presentation and business logic.

Parallel Programming in the .NET Framework Many personal computers and workstations have two or four cores (that is, CPUs) that enable multiple threads to be executed simultaneously. Computers in the near future are expected to have significantly more cores. To take advantage of the hardware of today and tomorrow, you can parallelize your code to distribute work across multiple processors. In the past, parallelization required low-level manipulation of threads and locks. Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4 enhance support for parallel programming by providing a new runtime, new class library types, and new diagnostic tools. These features simplify parallel development so that you can write efficient, fine-grained, and scalable parallel code in a natural idiom without having to work directly with threads or the thread pool.

CSS Tucked Corner Effect body { margin: 0; padding: 0; WPF Hands-On Lab: Get Started with the Prism Library In this lab, you will learn the basic concepts of the Composite Application Guidance for WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) and apply them to create a Composite Application Library solution that you can use as the starting point for building a composite WPF application. After completing this lab, you will be able to do the following: You will understand the basic concepts of the Composite Application Guidance for WPF. You will create a new solution based on the Composite Application Library. You will create a module and load it statically. You will create a view and show it in the Shell window.
