    • 0 Comments
    Curtis Frye’s Microsoft Excel 2010 Step by Step is now available! You can find the book’s Table of Contents and very detailed Introduction describing the book’s coverage here . Today we’d like to share an extended excerpt from the book. By the way, via our ongoing anonymous customer survey we received many comments saying that accessing the practice files on the companion disc that came along with Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Step by Step was difficult. So we’ve moved the practice files to the Web. Simply click the “Practice Files” link in the left margin at the book’s catalog page . OK, on to our excerpt. Each chapter in our Step by Step series begins with a graphical snapshot of the chapter’s most important topics: ...

    Windows PowerShell Community Extension project

    • 0 Comments
    I ran across the PowerShell Community Extension (PSCX) project several years ago when working with Windows PowerShell 1.0. It is a collection of cmdlets that are written for WIndows PowerShell by people in the community. Some of the people who work on the project are professional developers, others are not – they are people who like to write code for fun, and who enjoy contributing to the community. That is the beauty of the PSCX project it is community driven. The first set of cmdlets were great additions to Windows PowerShell and provide needed functionality, as well as some things that were just fun to use. The newest release works with Windows PowerShell 2.0. For today’s Hey Scripting Guy! article , I asked Keith Hill to write an article describing the newest version of PSCX. Check it out...

    Changing Display Resolution on the fly …

    • 0 Comments
    Back when I was traveling all around the world and teaching scripting workshops to customers, I was constantly changing the display resolution on my laptop. Generally, when connecting to the overhead projector (or beamer as it was called in Germany) you need to select a lower resolution than the laptop is designed to run at. This ensures the fonts will be viewable from the back of the room. While a low resolution (such as 800x600) looks good from the back of the room, it does not look good up close on the laptop. In fact, many Windows applications are unusable at such a low resolution due to the size of the dialog boxes and problems with navigating around the screen. I always wanted a script I could run when I started the day, and a script to run at the end of the day … or during lunch if I...

    Dino Esposito: “ASP.NET MVC: Your Option and Your Peril”

    • 6 Comments
    Dino here. Imagine you spent the last three years in a dark cave hidden in the intricate labyrinth of some rainforest. And imagine you had no connectivity for all that time. Now you’re back and you can’t wait to put your hands on the freshly released version of Visual Studio. You used to be a Web developer and you knew quite a bit of Web Forms programming—let’s say you were a loyal reader of my past books. (Thank you!) You open up Visual Studio 2010 and choose to create your first new Web project after three years—big surprise! You have now two options: ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC. It’s like getting a double (and largely unexpected) visit from the stork. You were waiting for one, and you get two. And, worse yet, you don’t know why two. Nor...

    One of the great things about TechEd …

    • 1 Comments
    One of the great things about Microsoft’s TechEd conference is the ability to meet different people. Before I began working for Microsoft, I was a consultant and the people I met at TechEd became invaluable sources of expert information. Now that I work for Microsoft, the people I meet at TechEd become invaluable sources of information about what our customers want and need. A case in point is this weeks Hey Scripting Guy! articles . I heard from several people that they wanted to be able to use Windows PowerShell to write scripts, but that they did not want to learn an entirely new way of doing things. They had VBScripts that worked, but they would like to convert them to Windows PowerShell so they would only have a single scripting environment. Well, you can certainly do that … it is possible...

    Jeffrey Richter: On exception handling and state management

    • 0 Comments
    Jeffrey here. In the third edition of my CLR via C# book (Microsoft Press, 2010; 896 pages), I rewrote the “Exception Handling” chapter. In fact, I even changed the title of this chapter to “Exceptions and State Management” to reflect that a large part of having an exception-handling strategy is really all about handling errors while still ensuring that none of your application’s state is corrupt after the error occurs. This is very important, of course, because an application accessing corrupted state causes the amount of corrupted state to increase, resulting in bugs and security holes. So, a good approach to take in your application is to allow any unexpected exceptions to terminate your application. Windows automatically destroys all state used by a terminating application, and this is...
