Confession time… I kind of love the concept of a “third party,” and have enjoyed seeing what is possible when you combine the power of the standard library with the enormous set of features and features in the.NET framework and third-party libraries. However, this exercise is just not that fun when you have to write the code yourself, as you can’t just see the types and methods available at your fingertips – you have to code them and embed the assemblies in your project.
I’ve been using this project for several months now and it’s been fun to get familiar with the project, but I’ve also found it to be a bit of a chore to develop, so rather than continue on like this, I’ve changed the direction of my blog post to relate this project in a slightly different way. To make the code a little more accessible for people unfamiliar with the.NET Framework and RIA Services, and to avoid the need to remember the current location of the necessary assemblies.
In this post I’ve included a new article called “Embedding the Silverlight RIA Service Quotas in a Managed Code Silverlight Application” where I not only walk through the code to embed the RIA Service Quotas in the project, but I also explain how you can use the assembly names to determine which of the RIA Services assemblies to embed in your project. You can download the code and explore it for yourself by right-clicking on this link to the download page: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/EmbeddingTheSilverlightRIAServiceQuotasInASilverlightManagedCodeApplication.aspx
In this post I’m going to go through the code and explain how it works. If you’re familiar with the code, you should be able to follow along. The code is available here on my personal website.Q:
C Programming - Why did the compiler allow me to assign a double to a char?
I'm a beginner in programming and I saw the following code in one of the book I'm reading. I couldn't understand why it allowed to assign one of the variables with double type to a char type.
