Screen Capture in SIlverlight 4.0

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Recently I have been doing a very sophisticated Silverlight project. In this project there was a need to capture the screen and to save the image in a data base. The known way to capture a screen is to use a WriteableBitmap class instance (See Jeff Prosise blog about this feature that was added in SL 3.0). To capture the screen we use the code from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1139200/using-fjcore-to-encode-silverlight-writeablebitmap  The following code is a service that captures the screen image:       public classSnapshotService : ISnapshotService     {        ...

IMDB, Weather, Hard Disks Failure – A Developer War Story

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

We are continuing to create contents that help to explain the new features of Windows 7 to the developers' community. This time we record set of short screen casts that include a presentation and one or two demos. To create those screen casts we have distributed the work between different people at Sela. Each person creates the presentation and the demos. This goes to Redmond for feedbacks. When they approve the content Sasha does the actual recording. So, last Wednesday I had to build the material for the Federated-Search screen cast. I wanted to have a new demo, not...

Sela Developer Practice

Monday, November 2, 2009

We are going to the PDC. And when I say we, I mean 17 experts and 3 managers from Sela. This year we are going to be in all sessions and meet many key professionals from Microsoft and other companies. We will also have a booth. Why do I tell you that? Not just to tell you that it is fun to work at Sela (It is, but it is also very demanding) and that we are investing in our people, but to announce that we are going to talk about all current and new technologies that will...

PDC-2008 Managed Development on Windows Server Core 2008 R2

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Windows Server Core is a subset of Windows Server 2008 dedicated to a specific mission. If you want to setup a DNS Server, a File Server, or a Media Server you don't need to full blown Windows Server machine. You don't need the Windows Shell, You don't need sound capabilities, you don't need ... you have got the idea. Using a subset of Windows Server 2008 results a smaller memory footprint, faster server and smaller attack service. For example comparing to the full Windows Server 2008, only 40 percents of the patches were needed for the Server Core....

Teched Eilat – Summary & Thoughts

Thursday, April 10, 2008

TechEd Eilat is over. I am sitting at the train station at Ben-Gurion Airport, there is a wireless connection and not less important an electricity outlet (those who know me, know that my laptop needs a power plant). I have many good things to tell about the TechEd and some not so good. It was fun as always, as opposed to Tamir, I know that most of the lecturers invested so much time in their preparations. I am happy that all the lecturers from Sela did a great job and that the feedbacks that we get from people...
