  • WinForms ComboBox -> DevExpress ComboBoxEdit (migration)

    I found a couple of solutions on the DevExpress website for how to use the ComboBoxEdit component the way I wanted, however, none of them seemed to provide a smooth transition from the WinForms databound ComboBox to the DevExpress counterpart.  So using some fo the examples that I found, reading through the help and reflecting ...

  • San Diego ASP.NET SIG - May 19th, 6pm

    I'll be at the San Diego ASP.NET SIG on May 19th doing my LINQ in the Real World discussion.  For anyone that has been at my previous "presentations", you'll know that I prefer to have more of a discussion surrounding the topic than a lecture.  So if you're in the area and would like to help spark conversation, feel ...

    Oh yeah, by the way, I'm now an INETA speaker. ;-) What does this really mean?  Well, if you'd like to get me to come out to your user group, all you need to do is put in a request to www.INETA.org and they'll help with the travel/hotel expenses and even pay for the pizza!  So here's a chance that you and I can meet face ...

  • Fort Worth .NET Users Group - January 20th

    If you're in the area, don't miss my presentation: What's New in .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1. Additionally, I've decided to extend Microsoft's extreme generosity by giving away a copy of MSDN Premium **WITH** Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite!!!!!!  Yes, you read that correctly!  It's the edition ...

  • Linq - Episode 1

    Linq is very, very, very cool.  I can easily envision looking three years from now and wonder "how did we write software without Linq?".  Several recent language editions have helped to reduce code needed and thus made my development life easier.  However, I have to say that Linq is something that seems to hit a home run ...

  • Console Event Handling

    Someone sent me an IM asking if I knew of a way to handle the pressing of the close button on a console application.  After a bit of research, I found a way (and some limitations).  This required stepping outside of the Microsoft .NET Framework utilizing P/Invoke.  This allowed me to capture the application close event (which ...

  • Console Event Handling

    IntroductionAt one point or another, most software developers have written a console application.  It might have been while you were learning how to write software or, even more recently, as a way to create a simple tool that doesn't require the extra effort involved in creating a robust user interface.  At Tech-Ed 2007, I actually ...

  • Presenting tonight at the North Dallas .NET User Group

    If your in the Dallas area (or more specifically, the North Dallas area), swing by NDDNUG tonight for my presentation on developing for Windows Vista using Visual Studio 2005.  (Of course discussing VS'08 can't be avoided and everything I'm speaking on works in VS'08).  Meeting starts at 6:00pm, so I'll need to head ...

  • Technology Avalanche

    I have to admit that lately I've been feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of new technology that I need to grok in order to stay ahead of the curve.  In a relatively short window of time, we've had Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Expression Blend, ...

  • Why Oh Why Microsoft Why Why Why

    OK, this is ridiculous!  Why wasn't this information funneled out to the VB MVP's (and other VB'ites like myself)?  How is it that the first word of this is stated in public by none other than Miguel de Icaza (yes, the mono project guy)? What am I talking about here?  Well according to Miguel, he discovered that the ...
