This post is an example of how to write a WCF Service using a class. The example uses Visual Studio 2010, written in C#, SQL Server 2008 and hosted in IIS. So lets have at it.

Just too bright
Like a lot of folks I am using SSMS and VS pretty much all day. But staring at the text on the stark white background can be a bit much for my eyes after a while. I have seen quite a few different “themes” for these apps which change all the colors around to make it easier on your eyes. Some of them are pretty cool but all I really wanted was to dim the background a little not radically change the way everything looked. Since the stock colors for comments, breakpoints, keywords and the like are so ......

Debugging Windows
After installing VS 2008 on a new PC I noticed that the Autos and Locals windows did not show up when debugging. So I went to the logical place to find them View/Other Windows. No luck they were not there. I use VS every day but like a lot of folks I only need to install it every few years, usually with a new PC. So I forgot where they were. Finding them is easy, just start debugging a project and go to Debug/Windows. The Autos and Locals windows along with the others will be there. And I will probably ......

Publishing Error (Old items just don’t go away)
I inherited an app to make some updates. It was an older 1.1 ASP.Net application that was already upgraded to 2.0. All the new files I wrote worked fine and it built error free.

I would get an error after the build completed and the publish started. The error was: Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position1. When I clicked on the error line in VS it ......

XP Extension or Extinction?
I might as well put in my two cents on saving Windows XP from extinction. I’ve tinkered around with Vista a little bit and the interface is pretty cool as long as you have the hardware to run it. Overall it looks good and does have more, albeit annoying, security features. Minor gripes would include changing items in the control panel that have been the same for years. My major gripe would be directly related to work and I’m sure other developers have already voiced this as well. The gripe would ......

Design View Error
I’ve been using Visual Studio 2008 for a few weeks now and came across a small issue. Of course it was with a new feature I wanted to use. When I would try and view the Design or Split (like I’m used to seeing in Dreamweaver) view in an ASP.Net page of a content page that points back to a master page I would get the following error: Luckily the fix was really simple although I do need to do it every time I load the project. Click on View/Refresh when viewing the Design or Split mode and the page ......
