Installed Visual Studio 2008 yesterday and it so far it seems to reach my expectations. Im looking forward to playing with all these new things; LINQ, anonymous types etc. However I got really dazzled to why my imported .NET 2.0 projects from Visual Studio 2005 behaved REALLY slow in 2008. I could hardly edit any code and loading the designer took forever. ......

The TreeView control in ASP.NET 2.0 is one of my favourite controls for building easy-to-use navigation. But it has some limitations, or at least they appear to me as limitiations. The problem is to maintain the state of the nodes when jumping around pages, especially in an masterpage based UI. So this is the task. I am using the Treeview to present ......

With the upcoming release of Microsoft Surface the term surface computing is getting really hot. I just saw this demo from a NYU spinoff called Perceptive Pixel, they demonstrate their technology that pretty much resembles Microsoft Surface Good resources about Surface Computing, i.e awesome demos ;-): Go to the productsite for Microsoft Surface and ......

Connection pooling is a great feature in the native SqlClient connector. For you who have not heard about it here's an introduction. Which you can obviously skip if you've heard about it ;-): SQL Connections are an expensive resourceBased on your connection string SqlClient will connect to a given Microsoft SQL Server using sockets, named pipes or whatever. ......

So, I was working on this method for detecting overlapping time periods for approx 11 hours. The objective was at first simple: take two timeranges and compare them. If they overlap then shout out loud, if not swallow and get on with your miserable life. I must say that this was MUCH more complex than I first thought. You cannot simply check if (dtmOrigEnd ......

Tonight we are shipping the new RSBC (the national operations center) for the Swedish Customs Service, which is a BIG system.I have developed, amongst other stuff on the system, mainly the Intranet and GPS localization systems. My first really huge deliverysince I started here…so Im a BIT nervous right now. Hope everything will work out though. Not ......

Firstly I must note that this could mess things up pretty bad in your code so keep that in mind before getting all to excited.I am talking about custom operators for classes and structures, that if done with grace can help you a lot. I will begin with introducing the concept of operators first for those of you who might have forgotten about it and then ......

Yesterday the Discovery crew launched the Science Festival in Gothenburg, mainly because Christer Fuglesang is a national hero here in Sweden. So the majority of the crew is travelling around Sweden for various seminars and interviews, I can't help myself wondering what the rest of the crew is thinking about the trip: P. For us Swedes he is a hero, ......

Today Microsoft announced that WPF/E will be named Silverlight in the future. Honestly Windows Presentation Foundation / Everywhere is much cooler as a name, not that it really matters. I think Silverlight actually will be a strong competitor to Adobe Flash. It has some neater features unlike Flash, like native 3D support most of the WPF features that's ......

I have learned something new today (good god ;-)). I have always thought that mainframes were dying dinosaurs on its way out off the market; sure you have supercomputers (but are that really the same thing?). What's cool is that IBM is still manufacturing mainframes (like the Z System) and the demand is increasing incredibly especially in banking and ......

I hate the tax agencies, all of my life I have always owed them money (before my employment at my current employer I had my own company…if you're a swede you know that that means being in constant struggle with the authorities ;-)). But now the table has turned and I actually enjoy finding ways of getting more money back. The way things work normally ......

I found this cool Mozilla CSS modifier that allows you to change the style of textselection in a page ( hard to explain in English for a swede…but ya know when you left-click and select text :P…is there a real verb for it? :P). *::-moz-selection { background-color:#FF3C00; color:white; } Don't know if there is an equivalent for Internet Explorer, but ......

As I've mentioned in an earlier post; one of my aims with this blog is NOT to talk about really advanced topics but instead I will try and reach out to all you beginners. Surely I will write about advanced stuff as I go along but now it is MY blog so I will write whatever the heck I want to :D. So, referencetypes is the meal for the night.The concept ......

As I was reading yet another chapter in Code Complete Second Edition by Steve McConnell I started to think about the VB operator '=' versus the C equivalent '=='. Even though im a big VB fan I must say the C style is much better. In VB we use the same operator for two purposes, in one place we use it for ASSIGNING data and in another we use it for COMPARING ......
