Cum sa utilizam optiunea de Pinned Site pe IE9 impreuna cu Windows 7

A fost lansat IE9. Ca de obicei, uni sunt pro, alti sunt contra. Ce m-a facut sa instalez IE9 a fost opțiunea de pinned site. Daca pana acuma doar pe o aplicatie puteai sa faci pin/unpin, IE9 ne ofera aceasta posibilitate si pentru siturile care suporta acest lucru. Chrome are aceasta opțiune de ceva vreme, dar va spun sincer ca nu am remarcato pana acuma( FF fan here).
De ce meta date avem nevoie ca sa putem face ca o pagina web sa poata fi pinned:
  • application-name: numele la pagina. Daca acesta nu este setat se folosește titlul la pagina;
  • msapplication-tooltip: textul care se afiseaza cand esti cu mouseul peste shortcut;
  • msapplication-starturl: URL spre care duce pagina pe care a fost făcuta pinned( de exemplu daca folosti un master page, puteti face orice pinned sa duca spre prima pagina;
  • msapplication-navbutton-color: culoarea la fundal si la text;
  • msapplication-window: dimensiunile default la browser cand se da click pe shortcut;
Toate acestea sunt opționale, ajunge doar sa apelam metoda JS pe care am descriso la sfîrșitul postului. Exemplu:
<meta name="application-name" content="Sample Site Mode Application"/>
<meta name="msapplication-tooltip" content="Programing issues"/>
<meta name="msapplication-starturl" content="http://vunvulearadu.blogspot.com/"/>
<meta name="msapplication-window" content="width=1024;height=800"/>
<meta name="msapplication-navbutton-color" content="white"/>

In cazul in care doriti sa specificati si o anumita icoana puteti sa folosti:
<LINK rel="shortcut icon" type=image/x-icon href="[locatia_de_pe_server_unde_este_icoana]">
<LINK rel=icon type=image/ico href="[locatie_icoana]">


Atentie: Trebuie sa specificați in primul tag locatie web unde se poate gasi fisierul, iar in al doilea tag se specifica calea relativa. Exemplu:
<LINK rel="shortcut icon" type=image/x-icon href="http://vunvulearadu.blogspot.com/raduIco.ico">
<LINK rel=icon type=image/ico href="./raduIco.ico">


In cazul in care acesta icoana nu este specificata se va folosi cea default a IE9. Userul poate sa personalizeze fiecare site pinned.
Pentru fiecare site pinned putem sa definim anumite taskuri in lista de "jump list tasks". Aceata lista se va afisa cand userul o sa dea click dreapta pe "pin"( nu am gasit o traducere care sa sune bine la pin- ac, bolt, cui, tinta? Suna prea ciudat). Pentru acest lucru putem sa ne folosim de meta data denumita msapplication-task. Prin acest mecanism putem sa oferim un meniu utilizatorului care sa il duca pe acesta la paginile principale( pagina de news, setari cont, status comenzi etc).
<META name="msapplication-task" content="name=Pagina logare;action-uri=http://cluj.ro/logare.html;icon-uri=http://cluj.ro/logareIcon.ico"/>
<META name="msapplication-task" content="name=Stiri;action-uri=http://cluj.ro/news.html;icon-uri=http://host/newsIcon.ico"/>


Pentru a se putea face pin la un site ajunge ca intr-o ancora sa apelasi metoda msAddSiteMode().
<a onclick="window.external.msAddSiteMode();" href="#">Pin Me</a><br />

Pentru a verifica daca pagina curenta a fost sau nu lansata ca si un pinned site puteti folosi window.external.msIsSiteMode().

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded. Make sure that the assembly-qualified name is used and that the assembly is available to the running application. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 for more information. at System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DependencyResolution.ProviderServicesFactory.GetInstance(String providerTypeName, String providerInvariantName) This error happened only on the Continuous Integration machine. On the devs machines, everything has fine. The classic problem – on my machine it’s working. The CI has the following configuration:

Entity Framework (EF) TransactionScope vs Database.BeginTransaction

In today blog post we will talk a little about a new feature that is available on EF6+ related to Transactions.
Until now, when we had to use transaction we used ‘TransactionScope’. It works great and I would say that is something that is now in our blood.
using (var scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required)) { using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("...")) { conn.Open(); SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.Connection = conn; sqlCommand.CommandText = ... sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery(); ... } scope.Complete(); } Starting with EF6.0 we have a new way to work with transactions. The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
In the followi…

GET call of REST API that contains '/'-slash character in the value of a parameter

Let’s assume that we have the following scenario: I have a public HTTP endpoint and I need to post some content using GET command. One of the parameters contains special characters like “\” and “/”. If the endpoint is an ApiController than you may have problems if you encode the parameter using the http encoder.
using (var httpClient = new HttpClient()) { httpClient.BaseAddress = baseUrl; Task<HttpResponseMessage> response = httpClient.GetAsync(string.Format("api/foo/{0}", "qwert/qwerqwer"))); response.Wait(); response.Result.EnsureSuccessStatusCode(); } One possible solution would be to encode the query parameter using UrlTokenEncode method of HttpServerUtility class and GetBytes method ofUTF8. In this way you would get the array of bytes of the parameter and encode them as a url token.
The following code show to you how you could write the encode and decode methods.
