Working on a script a while back, there was a need to sort a list of servers by the average response time. Being able to sort servers by their response times gives you the ability to ensure you are connecting to the best server based on your location and avoid servers that are down. Within the script, there are two functions: a custom ping function designed to work with XP and 2000, and the ServersByPingTime function which takes a list of servers and returns an array based on the best average re...

If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents.

Prior to the advent of .NET, DCOM was the underlying technology for remote communications between Windows-based applications. But DCOM is quirky to set up and configure and not as interoperable as it should be. In .NET, XML Web Services and .NET Remoting are a seamless and effective answer to the demand for tools to build distributed applications....

Powerful Instrumentation Options in .NET Let You Build Manageable Apps with Confidence  Version: 0.00     Price: $0.00

Instrumentation allows you to determine the running state of a system once it has been deployed. This is crucially important today since the people supporting systems are unlikely to be the same people who developed them. Like good error handling, instrumentation is best done at development time. A sound instrumentation policy must be established at the beginning of the development process to determine what should be instrumented, why, where, and how....

Programming with Lambda Expressions in VB9

Read Reviews | Write Review |  Your Rating: 

Lambda expressions are little bits of code that are very powerful. My personal theory on the human mind is that we have to keep putting greater and greater meaning into smaller and smaller packages. For example, Love is a very complex concept captured in four letters. A car is a very useful invention captured in three letters but there are all kinds of physics—combustion, inertia, fluid dynamics—and emotional concepts captured by the word car....

Establishing a remote WMI connection involves several issues, varying from communication ports to authorization.

This article started with a quest. I wanted a way to store my passwords in an encrypted file because I have a couple of dozen passwords and my memory is not what it once was. I know there are commercial tools to do this, but it looked like a useful exercise for learning a new technique in .NET. I ended up with a simple but complete program in Visual Basic® .NET for encrypting and decrypting a file, and I learned a lot along the way. Since encryption is an important topic for several kinds of dev...

When I checked out one of Microsoft's Web sites Starter Kits, I noticed that they had a bunch of gibberish sample text and wondered what poor soul had to write all of that out. I then thought, "They must have a tool to generate that gibberish text" and so as a fun project I decided to write my own.

Gibberish can take a bunch of text and swap out every alpha-numeric character in the text with a different random character. Or it can split the text up into an array of words and replace the t...

I have always disliked the standard Inviso-Drag and Drop cursor. I had hoped it would have been updated in .NET, but we all know the answer to that. I had continued to relying on the old workarounds like painting an image on the control or by having a Label, PictureBox, or combination follow the cursor around the screen. Of course this had flicker and boundary clipping problems that I never liked. Then I saw the xCursor[^] article by Elkay and saw new hope. I soon became obsessed with trying to ...
