This article is about checking new mail arrival in your Exchange inbox. It is not intended as a "how-to", as the code is not very well designed. You can rather think of it as my contribution to this very good web site. It provides an example of code re-using, and a ready-to-use application for checking mail.

GUI speaks French. You can easily turn it into your language of choice, by editing dialog, menu and strings resources....

Giving Computers a Voice

Most of us talk to our computers all the time. You wouldn't believe the things my wife says to her poor machine when something goes wrong. This article demonstrates how easy it is to enable managed applications to finally talk back using Microsoft's Speech API (SAPI). But don't worry: since you control what the application says, you can ensure it uses nicer language than my wife....

The TileEditor control edits a grid of tiles. It can be used to quickly create fast editors of tile based games. It supports 2D grids with multiple layers, and can paint relatively fast using GDI. The current version supports editing of small and medium maps, mutliple selections of tiles, copy and pasting of tiles and multiple undo and redo actions. Frequently, I have needed a Tile Editing control so I can quickly make editors to edit maps for Tile Based games. None were around at the time, so I...

This article describes the development of a small, but extensible bridge design game. It presents the user with a series of design challenges that require them to build increasingly larger bridges that span longer distances under a tight budget. The designer must create the bridge out of small structural components such as beams, cables, and pins. The bridge must span a gap using a limited number of support points. To provide a hint to the user and make it more visually pleasing, a background pi...

Interacting visually with the Windows Desktop from code is fun, so I decided to see what it would take to change the appearance. It turns out that wallpaper is not directly accessible from managed code, but working with Win32 API’s is no problem in this case. Developing this application allowed me to work with methods imported from system DLL’s, the registry, the file open dialog, a custom enumerated type, and use datasource binding to that enumerated type....

Ianier has a cool job; he writes code for DJs, allowing them to do professional digital signal processing (DSP) work using consumer software like Microsoft® Windows Media® Player. Very neat work, and lucky for us, he is digging into the world of managed code and managed Microsoft® DirectX®. In this article, Ianier has built a demo (see Figure 1) that will have you pounding your very own bass beats out of your little computer speakers in minutes. It's a managed drum machine that lets you configur...

Style Inspector is a simple tool tailored to current needs of people working in teams to develop web pages or HTML based documentation, teams within which brilliant people use daily their native talent and knowledge to achieve the tasks. Frequently, documents make use of "in-line" style sheets while plenty of style sheets are referenced by a bunch of multiple pages. All of a sudden, a team member decides to use some style elements on individual items within the page he is working on. "At the end...

NB: I removed comments and some details from the code for this article for brevity. To see the full code with comments download the sample project.

In .NET, Microsoft had introduced so-called asynchronous design pattern.

Suppose we have a method named LingeringCall that might execute for rather long time. "Rather long" usually means that the end user notices the interface of the program freezes during that call. Of course, you, as the author of the program, may execute this method ...

Looking for a component or a trick to build fairly simple bar charts, I found a function on provided by Jason Borovoy. While Jason's function could have done my job, I decided to make my own. Jason's functions created the graphs vertically, mine does them horizontally....

There are many screen capture programs available, but I was not happy with most of them. So I made a screen capture program myself. This program will not offer you the facility to take the picture of drop down menu and this feature is intentionally excluded. If you would like to implement IT yourself; you will find enough information on the internet. Also, it involves another module as a DLL, where I wanted to keep it simple....

This sample client-side C# .NET program is a specialized front-end for Google's Image Search™. Google ordinarily returns search results as a set of pages, each with a 4-column by 5-row grid of thumbnails. Thumbsuck instead presents the search results as a tiny slide show, one thumbnail at a time. The client provides two views: the main app, which presents a series of floating images with optional captioning, and a "Search and Settings" view. The latter, typically hidden when not needed, combines...

Behind the scenes: I like C# and I like ASCII art. So I asked myself if somebody has written some image to ASCII application in C#. I Googled but found nothing. I did image manipulation stuff for my company and so I decided to build a basic image-to-ASCII conversion library in C#....

Have you ever seen a C# application that converts a given image to a text-based ASCII Art image like the ones shown above? Well, a few months ago, I stumbled across an article4 on Code Project by Daniel Fisher which talks about creating an application that does just this. According to Daniel, he was not able to find any C# application on the web that does image-to-ASCII conversions, so he decided to write his own, and hence his article. This is yet another article on the same topic, but with a s...

While I have been coding some AI application I heard some mellow strains of a childish songstress coming from upstairs of the neighbours which they played repeatedly. It was sometimes hardly audible to catch the verses, but I managed to distinguish several characteristic phrases to have a look over some great web search engine (I like it, since it puts some of my codeproject code articles to first 1-2 pages of the search results). The only significant phrase from the song I submitted to the engi...
