Threading in C# - Free E-book Threading in C# Joseph Albahari Last updated: 2011-4-27 Translations: Chinese | Czech | Persian | Russian | Japanese Download PDF Part 1: Getting Started C# supports parallel execution of code through multithreading. A C# client program (Console, WPF, or Windows Forms) starts in a single thread created automatically by the CLR and operating system (the “main” thread), and is made multithreaded by creating additional threads. All examples assume the following namespaces are imported: using System; using System.Threading; class ThreadTest{ static void Main() { Thread t = new Thread (WriteY); t.Start(); for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++) Console.Write ("x"); } static void WriteY() { for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++) Console.Write ("y"); }} The main thread creates a new thread t on which it runs a method that repeatedly prints the character “y”. Once started, a thread’s IsAlive property returns true, until the point where the thread ends. Done static void Go(){ if (! Done Done (usually!) Join and Sleep

NuGet Package Manager extension Sign in to write a review Sort by: One time trial use and having it installed would frequently cause visual studio 2012 to crash with random error messages recording the NuGet package manager as the cause in an App log Xml file. Its abilities and or features from what was described would cut out a great deal of the manual work I perform but I need to figure out why it is not behaving in a more stable manor before re-installing it back into VS2012 for now it does not bother me to handle manually plus it keep me sharp on what is being added into my projects. by JayG | February 24 2014 This product is really bad it consistently locks up Visual Studio with no way to recover. This fails with "cannot access file because it is in use by another process." When will this be fixed ? IE9 is reporting a virus on this version (2.7.41101.299) I also have NOD32 installed. Essential tool for other tools. when will command-line 2.7.1 be included since package restore is better supported in that version?

PhoneGap mobile HTML5 framework adding support for Windows Phone Mango We’re very excited to join Nitobi to announce availability of a PhoneGap beta supporting Windows Phone Mango. This new option to build applications targeting Windows Phone gives more choices to developers. In particular, Web developers will be able to easily leverage their HTML5 skills to target Windows Phone. The beta version of the PhoneGap libraries can be downloaded from: In case you’ve been so busy writing code for months and you’ve never heard about PhoneGap, it’s an open source mobile framework that enables developers to build applications targeting multiple platforms, by using standard web technologies (HTML5, CSS and JavaScript). On Windows Phone Mango PhoneGap leverages the new HTML5 support provided by IE9. We have been in touch with André Charland and Brian Leroux (Co-Founders of Nitobi the creator of PhoneGap), who are seeing a growing interest from the PhoneGap developer community to target Windows Phone.

patterns & practices Each patterns & practices offering contains a combination of written documentation and re-usable source code. Many also include a reference implementation. As the guidance is being developed it is reviewed and approved by internal Microsoft product teams and by external customers and partners. Many patterns & practices offerings illustrate how to incorporate multiple Microsoft products and technologies into an overall solution. By using patterns & practices offerings, you can accelerate the design and development of your custom applications, reduce project technical risk, and position yourself to take advantage of future Microsoft technologies. patterns & practices offerings are organized in the MSDN Library into the following categories: In addition, a collection of Retired Content is available. To view the future release plan, see the patterns & practices Roadmap. The patterns & practices group provides escalation support through Microsoft product support.

Html Agility Pack OMA DM Provisioning Files OMA DM commands are transmitted between the server and the client device in messages. A message can contain one or more commands. For a list of commands supported in Windows Mobile 6.5, see OMA DM Protocol Command Elements. A DM message is an XML document. The structure and content of the document is defined in the OMA DM Representation Protocol (OMA-SyncML-DevInfo-DTD-V1_1_2-20030505-D.dtd) available from the OMA Web site. Each message is composed of a header, specified by the SyncHdr element, and a message body, specified by the SyncBody element. The following table shows the OMA DM versions that are supported in Windows Mobile: The following example shows the general structure of the XML document, using OMA DM version 1.2 for demonstration purposes only. For more information about the header and body, see SyncHdr and SyncBody.

Tx (LINQ to Logs and Traces) - Home OMA Client Provisioning Files One provisioning XML file typically contains configuration information for multiple Configuration Service Providers. The root node of the provisioning XML is a wap-provisioningdoc node. The following table shows the format of this node. The structure of the nodes within each version is the same: The Configuration Service Provider is identified, as are the settings to be queried or changed. Typically, an OMA Client Provisioning file holds configuration instructions for multiple Configuration Service Providers. The Microsoft MSPROV document type definition (DTD) describes the configuration document. Each Configuration Service Provider lists the Microsoft custom elements that it supports. The following example shows the general format of a provisioning document for OMA Client Provisioning. The first-level characteristic elements indicate which Configuration Service Providers are used to set and retrieve individual settings. Each characteristic element may contain the following:

Managing Windows Mobile Devices Managing a device involves configuring the device after the initial operating system (OS) is put in ROM. The initial image placed in ROM is the bootstrap image. You can then manage the device from a remote location through continuous provisioning by using a device management (DM) server. The mobile operator, corporation, or user can perform the following tasks, depending on the security policy set by the device manufacturer: Configure the device to change functionality. The following table shows the two major ways in which you can manage devices. Best Practices in Managing Devices Lists general best practices for device management. Understanding Provisioning Describes the concepts of provisioning a device, including the architecture, protocols, and available services. Understanding OTA Firmware Update Describes how Windows Mobile handles OTA firmware update at the various component levels, and contains scenarios and FUMO result codes.

Creating an Installer for Windows Mobile Applications When deploying your Windows Mobile application, you may want to create an installer that runs on the user's desktop and invokes the Application Manager to install your application on the user's device. The creation of an installer with Visual Studio is simple, requires little coding, and can be done within the existing Visual Studio Solution for your application. Make sure that Solution Explorer for your project is visible. On the File menu, point to Add, and then click New Project. Make sure that Solution Explorer for your project is visible.

Mobile PractiCEs: How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer This time I'm going back to a basic topic: How to create a windows mobile installer for our mobile (Pocket PC / Smartphone)application. I've already blogged before about how to build a .cab which registers the assemblies on the .Net CF GAC. But this time I'm focusing on the .cab installer itself. A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. Traditionally, the process to create a .cab file was tedious and totally unfriendly. The easiest way to build a .cab file is using Visual Studio. Walkthrough: How to create a Smart Device CAB Project Assume we have the following solution: First of all, we need to add a new Smart Device CAB Project to the solution: Right click on the solution, Add - New Project... Call it DeviceCoolAppInstaller and press OK. Now, I recommend we change the project properties to get a *nice* product installation. Congrats! Well, work is done.
