A lap around UG Meet

Event started few minutes before the scheduled time as more than expected number of attendees gathered at the venue.
Sidharth Sehgal delivered a session on Windows Phone 7 Application Development and has covered overview of mobile appication development and a couple of demos for newbies.
After this, Praveen Saxena gave a session on ASP.NET MVC. He covered with the topics – MVC Architecture, advantages of using MVC with ASP.NET, where to use it and the best practices.
Had good time with Phani, Harish and Abhijit.
Met a lot of developer acquaintances. Community events are good for getting in touch with people having same thoughts and ideas. Its really nice to meet people with same itch 😉

Hope HUG conducts such ‘quality’ sessions in the future too!

Changing the default language in Visual Studio

You might have came across a situation where you set the default version of Visual Studio to some language mistakenly or you want to change it because of some reason. Here is the solution for it.

It might be looking silly. But for those who are in need. It mean a lot, I suppose.

There are two ways of doing this.

First:

  1. Choose Tools -> Import and Export Settings…
  2. Select Reset All Settings and click Next
  3. Select whether you would like to save the current settings (I would say not here) and click Next
  4. Select the settings you want to use(change the language to C#) and click Finish

But, this is not advisable if there are any environmental settings that are set in the VS. In this case, you can use the following approach.

Second:

Modifying CurrentSettings.vssettings file. This file can be found in My Documents\Visual Studio x\Settings\ directory.

Open CurrentSettings.vssettings in a text or XML editor, and search for DefaultProjectLanguage.

You can then change the value accordingly. Here are the two options for VB or C#.

<PropertyValuename="DefaultProjectLanguage">VB</PropertyValue>

<PropertyValuename="DefaultProjectLanguage">CSharp</PropertyValue>

Save the file, and once you open Visual Studio, you’re set.

Hope this helps!

Articles: Customizing the Office Ribbon

Just came across the series of articles on Customizing Office Fluent Ribbons for Developers which covers all the customizing options that are available for Developers. Here are their links.

Hope this helps!

Troubleshooting Error: Loader Lock was detected

While working with Redemption library, we usually get the following error while debugging the project.

Attempting managed execution inside OS Loader lock. Do not attempt to run
managed code inside a DllMain or image initialization function since doing so
can cause the application to hang.

As per Dmitry Streblechenko (Redemption Team), this exception is raised when .NET thinks that a dll that it is loading is doing something that can potentially lock the loader (like circularly loading dlls etc). Redemption does load the MAPI libraries at the startup, but that is about it. That warning can be safely ignored.

 

Work-Around:

We can skip this error by clearing the LoaderLock checkbox in Debug -> Exceptions -> Managed Debud Assistants.

Debug | Exceptions | Managed Debug Assistants > LoaderLock (Uncheck this!)

Redemption Library is really wonderful creation. It helps the developers a lot in handling and accessing some attributes of Outlook Items which cannot be accessed using the API given by Microsoft.
