WebPart - UserControl Loaded Multiple Times and GridView Event not Triggerd

Creating user control declaratively in your WebPart won't give your alot of problem. But when you try to load pro grammatically a user control (ascx) into your webparts using something like this:-

Your WebPartPage

Control uc = this.LoadControl(@"webparts\CompanyNews.ascx");
uc.ID = "webPartyMan";
GenericWebPart wp2 = wp.CreateWebPart(uc);
wp.AddWebPart(wp2, LeftZone, 1);

You found that you loaded it multiple times and somethings GridView events are not triggered.
What the trick?

You only load your ascx once (you won't load it ever again) and right after you dynamically load it call SetPersonalizationDirty(); This is done using your custom WebPartManager;

This is a very simplified version of your custom webPartManager (loadPersonalizationBlob and savePersonalizationBlob)

namespace CoreWebPart
public class myWebPartManager : WebPartManager

public void SetDirty()

} ///// end namespace

Then your webpart page would look something like this:-

CoreWebPart .myWebPartManager wp = (CoreWebPart .wingTipManager) CoreWebPart .myWebPartManager .GetCurrentWebPartManager(this.Page);

//// create control code to load this only once /////

Control uc = this.LoadControl(@"webparts\CompanyNews.ascx");
uc.ID = "webPartyMan";
GenericWebPart wp2 = wp.CreateWebPart(uc);
wp.AddWebPart(wp2, LeftZone, 1);

//// create control code to load this only once /////

Please make sure you use myWebPartManager as oppose to the standard WebPartManager in your ASPX page.

Android Programmatically apply style to your view

Applying style to your view (button in this case) dynamically is pretty easy. All you have to do is place the following in your layout folder (res/layout)
Let's call this file : buttonstyle.xml

DataTable does not have AsEnumerable

I have problem locating my AsEnumerable extension method in my DataTabe (System.Data). Thank god for this post by Angel

I was able to find this method once i have added reference to the following assembly.

C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5\System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll

Try to do a dummy Build and you should be able to get it.

OpenCover code coverage for .Net Core

I know there are many post out there getting code coverage for .dotnetcore. I'm using opencover to address this needs.

In case, you do no want to use opencover and wanted to stick with vs2015 code coverage, you can try to copy Microsoft.VisualStudio.CodeCoverage.Shim.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Team Tools\Dynamic Code Coverage Tools\coreclr\ and drop it into your project "bin\Debug\netcoreapp1.0" folder.  Please note : you need to be on VS2015 Enterprise to do this. 

To get started, I guess we need to add OpenCover and ReportGenerator for our test projects, as shown in diagram below :-

When nuget packge gets restored, we will have some binaries downloaded to our machine and we going to use this to generate some statistics. I think the biggest issue is to getting those command lines work.

In dotnetcore, we run test project using "dotnet test" (assuming you are in the test project folder - if not please go there)  So we add this …
