Rasterizing EMF files with .Net / C#
I can almost hear you think: “Why on earth would anyone use EMF?” Well… I don’t… but MS Office does! Thumbnails that are saved in MS Word documents are in the EMF format. As I struggled to do something with one, I realized that I had to convert it first to a more “easy to handle” format: PNG. Easier said than done.
Strongly Typed Events 0.2.0 – now with Simple Events
A while ago I started a GitHub project for Strongly Typed Events in TypeScript. I’ve uploaded the second version (0.2) with support for ISimpleEvent
A BlockHasher helper class
There are a few instances in which you’ll need to hash a combination of data. You might resort to creating one big string and hashing that. It has a clear disadvantage from a memory and processing point of few. It might even be impractical when files or streams are involved. That’s why I created a BlockHasher utility class that helps to generate these types of hashes.
An evaluator for simple script evaluation
In a previous blog I explored how to create a dynamic compiler. In this blog I’ll explore how to create an evaluator that aids in the compilation of classes. It will take care of the ceremony needed to wrap the code into a class, compile it and retrieve the result.
How to add dynamic compilation to your C# projects?
Dynamic compilation is an awesome feature to add to your projects. Especially frameworks will benefit from the compilation of dynamic expressions and scripts. There are two main ways of doing it: the Code DOM Compiler or the Roslyn project. In this blog I will show how to implement them both.
Adding named events to your TypeScript classes (Part 4)
Need to add named event support to your class? Implement the IEventHandling interface or extend from the abstract EventHandlingBase class. In this tutorial I explore how you can give your class named events.
Strongly Typed Events in TypeScript using an event list (Part 3)
In this tutorial I explore how an event list can be used to support scenarios with classes with a multitude of events. There is a way to decrease the number of private backing variables using an EventList
Using strongly typed events in TypeScript with interfaces (Part 2)
In a previous tutorial I explained how events can be implemented as properties on a class using Strongly Typed Events for TypeScript. Let’s explore how these work on interfaces. Interfaces work a little different, because they don’t have getters and setters on them (at least nog in TypeScript 1.8). Let’s explore how these work on interfaces.
Strongly typed event handlers in TypeScript (Part 1)
As a C# programming I have a lot of interest in the TypeScript project. Lately I’ve been playing around with it to look what it can do. I found myself in need of some event handling, so I decided to build something that looks like the event handling .Net gives you.
Auto fill settings objects with .config values
Lately I’ve been playing around with some API’s. Most of them need a bunch of settings that I’m storing them in my config files. I found myself doing the same work over and over again: creating a settings class, filling the class with information and using it. So I came up with a way to leverage reflection to fill my setting classes with .config values.
