When Silverlight databinding evaluates a binding expression, it does one of two things. If the object it is bound to inherits from FrameworkElement and there is a DependencyProperty matching the binding expression, it uses FrameworkElement.GetValue to retrieve the value [simplified]. If not a FrameworkElement and not a DependencyProperty, Silverlight ......

A business partner using Visual Studio 2005 developing workflow components emailed me through here, so I figured I'd post the answer. Problem:When you use one of the iMotion project item templates in Visual Studio 2005, it will product the wrong language code. A C# project will create VB.NET code and vice versa. Cause:There is a bug in the installer ......

Since I originally posted this in July, I've gotten absolutely nowhere with Microsoft. I have, however, had a couple hundred google searches for things like “IE7 beta process.start error“. Since then my bug was closed, someone else reopened it, and I've found another similar bug where the IE7 beta and RC take over shell execute and deny ......

Just recently Symbol bought Matrics. Now Motorola has decided to get heavy into RFID and bought Symbol. http://www.motorola.com/med... This could lead to some really interesting product ideas. It could also lead to Symbol going stagnant for a while during yet another corporate restructuring ......

UPDATE (9/7/2006):Microsoft closed my bug without really looking at it. I got “not an IE problem“. Luckily, someone else has picked up the cause and resubmitted with a bit more information for me. If you are having this problem and want it fixed (because ShellExecute=false may not work for you), then go here and vote/validate the bug:https://connect.microso... ......

Well, my first reporting of a bug to Microsoft (via the phone, through product support services) has finally resulted in a KB article. http://support.microsoft.co... I submitted this bug to Microsoft on November of 2005 and it finally made a public KB article on June 1 of 2006. At least this was a relatively minor issue ......

A link between event controls in the iMotion Edgeware Platform represents the flow of data in the form of an event and delivered through a method invocation and is the primary way for event controls to “talk” to each other. This in-band communication may not always be the most appropriate way for one event control to execute another event control and an out-of-band method of communication may be more appropriate. ...

I can't even remotely explain how important I feel the "hit by a bus and now we don't have any who knows [x]" behavior in companies is (or rather, the lack of said behavior). I think it's just a common behavior when you have a single person work from start to finish on a given section of a software application: you have the guy who wrote the interface, ......

The behavior expressed through the ALE..

Scott Guthrie is posting that they're developing a new project type for ASP.NET projects in Visual Studio 2005. I still have no idea why that crackpot (note, "crackpot" is meant to be funny) thought that removing the concept of a project from ASP.NET would sit well with people who had been creating ASP.NET applications for four or more years (with another ......
