Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files. Overview This image illustrates the difference between bitmap and vector images. SVG has been in development since 1999 by a group of companies within the W3C after the competing standards Precision Graphics Markup Language (PGML, developed from Adobe's PostScript) and Vector Markup Language (VML, developed from Microsoft's RTF) were submitted to W3C in 1998. Since 2001, the SVG specification has been updated to version 1.1. Work is currently in progress on SVG 2, which incorporates several new features in addition to those of SVG 1.1 and SVG Tiny 1.2. Printing Scripting and animation SVG drawings can be dynamic and interactive. Compression Development history

List of United States Navy ratingsFrom left to right: a Special Warfare Operator 1st Class and a Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class. Ratings should not be confused with rates, which describe the Navy's enlisted pay-grades and ratings. Enlisted sailors are referred to by their rating and pay-grade. History After more than 200 years of evolution, today’s Navy enlisted rating structure still plays a key role in career development, serves as a basis for training, detailing, advancement, and simply keeping tabs on several hundred thousand Navy Personnel. Rating structure Rear Admiral Terry McCreary presenting a rating insignia of a Mass Communication Specialist First Class (MC1). The pay grades E-4 (Petty Officer Third Class) through E-9 (Master Chief Petty Officer) fall within the rating structure. The word "rate" is used in two ways within the structure.

Comparison of layout engines (Scalable Vector Graphics)The following tables compare SVG compatibility and support for a number of layout engines. Please see the individual products' articles for further information. Unless otherwise specified in footnotes, comparisons are based on the stable versions without any add-ons, extensions or external programs. Explanation of the tables Engine nomenclature Rather than the names of web browsers, the names of the underlying engines are used. Values Values indicate the level of support in the most recent version of the layout engine, or (if a version number is given) in the specified version. This table shows support status of different ways of embedding SVG into HTML, for different layout engines. Comparison of various Scalable Vector Graphics element support.
IDictionary Options - Performance Test - SortedList vs. SortedDictionary vs. Dictionary vs. HashtablePlease note that the advantage of Hashtable over generic Dictionary for insert and search operations demonstrated here is actually because the tests are based on NON generic IDictionary interface, so each insert or search action is accompanied with check for the key type. For more information see the Sean's comment below. (Thanks Sean!) Without that Dictionary seem to perform better than the Hashtable. The rest of the test conclusions will not be affected. This is a sequence of tests comparing the performance results for four different implementations of IDictionary and in particular generic Dictionary, generic SortedDictionary, the old non-generic Hashtable and generic SortedList. I performed several tests, comparing the following parameters: memory used in bytes, time for the insertion in ticks, time for the item search in ticks, and the time for looping with foreach in ticks. Performance Coefficient for value x = min(value 1, value 2, … value n) / value x These is the raw data.

Gecko is free and open-source software subject to the terms of the Mozilla Public License version 2. It is designed to support open Internet standards, and is used by different applications to display web pages and, in some cases, an application's user interface itself (by rendering XUL). Gecko offers a rich programming API that makes it suitable for a wide variety of roles in Internet-enabled applications, such as web browsers, content presentation, and client/server. Development of the layout engine now known as Gecko began at Netscape in 1997, following the company's purchase of DigitalStyle. As Gecko development continued, other applications and embedders began to make use of it.
WPF Command-Pattern AppliedDownload source - 79.5 KB Introduction WPF Commanding offers the base for integration of the GoF Command pattern into an application. This article describes an approach with the following goals: Program Architecture Creation of functional units in hierarchies Reduction of complexity in large applications Automated testing Reusability of the pattern and the commands Command Description Description of a command should be neutral to the GUI in use Commands should be easy to localize Command Runtime Behaviour Static parameter (per command instance) Context sensitive runtime data Source provided runtime parameters (ICommandSource.CommandParameter) UI Integration Images and ToolTips with Gestures for existing command sources (Button and MenuItem) Visualization of a Disabled state for Button controls Selectable binding via XAML or Code-Behind Integration of existing WPF commands as for example the System.Windows.Documents.EditingCommands Command Repository Command Command Runtime Behaviour Usage
