The .NET Platform

Microsoft .NET platform defines a standard around which a system can be developed. Microsoft .NET platform provides countless opportunities for different services and systems to interact, allowing programmers to develop powerful solutions for the internet. A major theme of Microsoft .NET platform is the idea of Web services, allowing software to communicate directly with other software using Internet technologies. The .NET Framework and Visual Studio.NET, two more core aspects of this initiative, provide a multi-language environment in which developers can create Web services and other kinds of applications.

Using Regular Expressions Metacharacters with .net – POSIX Character Classes

The POSIX or "Portable Operating System Interface for Unix" is the collective name of a family of related standards specified by the IEEE to define the application programming interface (API), along with shell and utilities interfaces for software compatible with variants of the Unix operating system, although the standard can apply to any operating system. Originally, the name stood for IEEE Std 1003.1-1988, which, as the name suggests, was released in 1988. The family of POSIX standards is formally designated as IEEE 1003 and the international standard name is ISO/IEC 9945. The standards emerged from a project that began circa 1985. Formerly known as IEEE-IX, the term POSIX was suggested by Richard Stallman in response to an IEEE request for a memorable name.

Caution..??
JavaScript does not support the use of POSIX character classes in regular expressions. All 12 POSIX classes enumerated here are generally supported in any implementation that supports POSIX. However, there may be subtle variances from the preceding descriptions.

How can I register (install) a .dll on windows?

How can I register (install) a .dll on windows?

To register (install) a .dll on windows Microsoft provided a command-line tool ‘Regsvr32.exe’. Regsvr32 registers .dll files as command components in the windows registry.

When you use Regsvr32.exe, it attempts to load the component and call its DLLSelfRegister function. If this attempt is successful, Regsvr32.exe displays a dialog indicating success. To register dll go to start > Run

Tip..!!
You can also register a dll by creating a .bat file. Now we see example to register dll ‘RTF_to_HTM.dll’. Open Notepad.exe and put text ‘regsvr32 RTF_to_HTM.dll’ and save it.
File Name – registerDLL.bat
Save as Type – All Files

Importance of Coding Standards for .NET Development

Importance of Coding Standards for .NET Development

While coding, is necessary to follows guideline or criterion of coding standard? We have a problem and we are going to write code for that. We are getting what we want then what is the need of terms like coding standard? Are they really useful? In this article we are going to find out answers of our questions…

Coding Standard…?

A coding standard is a set of guidelines, rules and regulations on how to write code which will help programmers/developer quickly read and understand source code conforming to the style as well as helping to avoid introducing faults and misunderstanding.

Coding standards are important because they provide greater consistency and uniformity in writing code between programmers. This ultimately leads to the code that is easier to understand and maintain which reduces the overall cost of the project.
