Windows 8: Error on video playing

Pentru aplicatiile Metro in Windows 8, adaugarea de video la un view se face destul de simplu, utilizand componente precum MediaPlayer .
<MediaPlayer x:Name="VideoMediaPlayer" AutoPlay="False" Loaded="VideoMediaPlayer_Loaded"/>
private void VideoMediaPlayer_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
MediaPlayer player = (MediaPlayer)sender;
IRandomAccessStream videoStream = GetVideoStream();
player.SetSource(videoStream, "video/mp4");
Binding-ul la source se poate face in diferite moduri. Nu are importanta cum il faceti. In schimb pe versiunea curenta de Windows 8 ( Consumer Preview) aplicatia voastra o sa crape uneori cand userul face play/stop sau schimba pagina curenta.
Eroarea care se arunca are forme asemanatoare cu aceasta:
Exception from HRESULT: 0xC00D3E85
Call to UIASendMessageTimeout failed
Nu incercati sa faceti FIX la aceasta problema in codul vostru. Problema este un bug pe care Windows 8 CP il are si care o sa fie fix-uit in urmatoarea versiune.
Tot din aceasta cauza uneori poate as apara e eroare de genul:
Error loading from server.
in bare unde se face play/pauze la un video.
Speram ca in urmatorul release aceste probleme se rezolva.

How to check in AngularJS if a service was register or not

There are cases when you need to check in a service or a controller was register in AngularJS.
For example a valid use case is when you have the same implementation running on multiple application. In this case, you may want to intercept the HTTP provider and add a custom step there. This step don’t needs to run on all the application, only in the one where the service exist and register.
A solution for this case would be to have a flag in the configuration that specify this. In the core you would have an IF that would check the value of this flag.
Another solution is to check if a specific service was register in AngularJS or not. If the service was register that you would execute your own logic.
To check if a service was register or not in AngularJS container you need to call the ‘has’ method of ‘inhector’. It will return TRUE if the service was register.
if ($injector.has('httpInterceptorService')) { $httpProvider.interceptors.push('httpInterceptorService&#…

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 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…
