Debug Silverlight application - breakpoint not hit

In cazul in care lucrati cu o aplicatie Silverlight si vreti sa faceti debug s-ar putea sa va treziti nici un brake point nu este atins. Cele mai comune cauze la aceasta probleme sunt:
  • proiectul web care contine XAP nu este setat sa permita debug si la Silverlight. Acest lucru se poate activa in felul urmator: click dreapta pe proiectul web care contine xap-ul. Sub tabul Web in zona de Debuggers, verificati sa fie selectat si Silverlight
  • puteti incerca tot din Properties de pe proiectul web din tab-ul Silverlight Applications sa stergeti link-ul spre proiectul Silverlight si sa il adaugati din nou( in cazul in care nu aveti proiectul adaugat ca si link, checkboxul de la punctul precedent nu o sa fie vizibil
  • verificati ca in browser rulati un url care contine http// si nu file//. Debugul spre linkuri spre local file system este dezactivat
  • nu sunteti atasati la procesul care trebuie( aceasta este o problema a Visual Studio care nu se ataseaza la procesul care trebuie). Pentru a va atasa la proces, cand sunteti in debug este nevoie sa selectati Debug->Attach to Process. Acolo trebuie sa selectati procesul care ruleaza aplicatia voastra( iexplorer.exe, firefox.exe etc)

Daca nici o solutie nu a functionat, atunci puteti incerca sa instalati din nou tool-urile pentru Silverlight, in unele cazuri chiar merge.

In cazul in care vreti sa folosti Firefox, este necesar sa faceti urmatori pasi:

  • Load FireFox
  • Type "about:config" into FF's address bar
  • Accept the warning (if applicable)
  • Search for the entry "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled"
  • Change its value from "true" to "false" (double-click)
  • Restart the browser

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…

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.
