How to overcome the CLR fusion limitation

יום שני, ינואר 10, 2011

There are cases where you would be interested to load an assembly from a different directory then the root dir of your .net application. When you’ll try to do so you will face with the limitation of the fusion process (assembly loading process) – this limitation limits you to load assemblies from underneath the root dir of your application in order to guard your app from dll hell. In order to overcome this limitation you can use the old plain Unix trick… create a symbolic link to the file… there is a small utility called mklink which lets...

What's new in Visual C# 4.0 ? – Part 2 – Names Parameters

This is the second post of what’s new in Visual Studio C# 4.0. At the former post we reviewed the feature of optional parameters at this post we will concentrate on Named Parameters. Named Parameters Lets assume you are writing the following procedure : public static void SaySomething(string name, string msg)         {             Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Hi {0} !\n{1}", name,msg));         } When you want to call it from your code you are using something like: Code Snippet static void Main(string args)         {             SaySomething("Ohad","What's up?");             Console.ReadLine();         } What’s the problem ? Although you will have intellisense while you are coding it for the reader of the code its unclear what is the first parameter and what is the second...

What's new in Visual C# 4.0 ? – Part 1 – Optional parameters

This is the first blog from a series of blog post which I'm planning to do on whet’s new in Visual C# 4.0 Optional parameters Optional parameters is a new feature in C# 4.0 which will let you set a default value for an argument of a method. In case that the collie of the method will omit the argument the default value will take its place. So instead of writing the following code: class Program     {         static void Main(string args)         {             SaySomething();             SaySomething("Ohad");             Console.ReadLine();         }         public static void SaySomething()         {             Console.WriteLine("Hi !");         }         public static void SaySomething(string name)         {             Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Hi {0}!",name));         }     } You will only have to write: class Program     {         static void Main(string args)         {             SaySomething();             SaySomething("Ohad");             Console.ReadLine();         }         public static void SaySomething(string name = "")         {             Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Hi...
