Recapping my work signalR ....




Working with signalR is really straigth forward, all you need to do is create your "Hub".

Lets go configure your MVC project with the following command :-




Next, lets get some concepts out the door. In signalR what we write eventually gets 'callable' by clients. One way of thinking about it is, public methods here is what client call.

Whenever you call  this.Client.CLIENT_METHOD_TO_INVOKE (normally in hubs) you are invoking client side javascript function.



Create a hub, as such and you're ready to test your SignalR apps.

Step 1 :-



At this point you would like to test out your code, by going to http://localhost:YOUR_PORT/SignalR/hubs and you will see javascripts rendered on your browser and your method is reflected here also.



Somehow i have added some server side calls but it is not reflected here. :)


Step 2 :-

Modify your index.html and you're ready to go.




So we start our hub (subscribe to a specific hub if you will) and then directly under it, we have javascript code that send message to server perfHub.server.send and invokes client's side function with perfHub.client.subscribeMessage .

We can easily differentiate between calls to either server and client as it is stated clearly in the method call.


For a more advance example, please take a look at the following source.

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
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> <item android:state_pressed="true" > <shape> <solid android:color="#449def" /> <stroke android:width="1dp" android:color="#2f6699" /> <corners android:radius="3dp" /> <padding android:left="10dp" android:top="10dp" android:right="10dp" android:bottom="10dp" /> </shape> </item> <item> <shape> <gradient android:startColor="#449def" a…

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 …

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.
