Convert a collection of items to a string

Sunt cazuri cand avem liste pe care dorim sa le convertim intr-un string folosind un anumit delimitator.
List<string> lista=new List<string>(){ "A" , "B" , "C" };
//Output: A, B, C,
LINQ nu contine o solutie directa, putem incerca sa interam cu un foreach toate elementele din lista si sa le adaugam la un StringBuilder
StringBuilder sb=new StringBuilder();
string format = "{0}, ";
lista.ForEach(item => sb.AppendFormat(format, item));
Dar din pacate codul scris mai sus este echivalent cu un foreach clasic, doar ca iteram folosind LINQ. O solutie este sa folosim metoda String.Join, care primeste doi parametrii:
-delimitatorul;
-un array care contine lista de string-uri;
Aceasta metoda functioneaza fara probleme, singura problema care o are este ca nu functioneaza pe obiecte generice de tip IEnumerable. Pentru a rezolva acest neajuns este sa apelam la extension method si sa ne scriem propria noastra metoda pentru IEnumerable.
 /// <summary>
/// For generic IEnumerable.
/// </summary>
/// <typeparam name="T">The generic type of IEnumerable.</typeparam>
/// <param name="source">The IEnumerable object.</param>
/// <param name="separator">The string separator.</param>
/// <returns>The string formed from the of each item of list.</returns>
public static string ToString<T>(this IEnumerable<T> source, string separator)
{
if (separator == null)
{
throw new ArgumentNullException("Parameter separator can not be null.");
}

return string.Join(
separator,
source
.Where(item => item != null)
.Select(item => item.ToString())
.ToArray());
}

/// <summary>
/// For generic IEnumerable.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="source">The IEnumerable object.</param>
/// <param name="separator">The string separator.</param>
/// <returns>The string formed from the of each item of list.</returns>
public static string ToString(this IEnumerable source, string separator)
{
if (separator == null)
{
throw new ArgumentNullException("Parameter separator can not be null.");
}

string[] array = source.Cast<object>().Where(n => n != null).Select(n => n.ToString()).ToArray();

return string.Join(
separator,
source
.Cast<object>()
.Where(item => item != null)
.Select(item => item.ToString())
.ToArray());
}

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 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…
