Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Threading issues

    Posted 25 Mar 2015

    Microsoft don't recommend you use the Thread class unless you need to specifically control the thread. Use a Task instead.

    One easy way is to simply do this:

    Task DrawTask;
    
    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        DrawTask = Task.Run(() => Draw());
    }
    
    
  2. In Topic: Creating a simple "joke" program

    Posted 24 Mar 2015

    Code's not bad, but in C# we start method names with capital letters. Otherwise it looks like filthy Javascript.

    Unfortunately I can't consider this piece of software complete unless it asks if you've ever drunk Bailey's out of a shoe. :D
  3. In Topic: Creating an Easy Data Access Layer using Entity Framework

    Posted 18 Mar 2015

    The EF link is no longer working, but I can't seem to edit! It's at https://www.nuget.or...EntityFramework for those currently looking for it.
  4. In Topic: Sams Teach Yourself WPF...Database?

    Thanks !

    You know, when learning something like this, I spend about 30% of the time reading the source material, 20% trying it out, 20% re-reading the source material, then 30% thinking about it while running or in the shower, then I feel like it's there in my head. Everybody has a different approach to learning, and you'll find a way that suits you. But even when you feel like you're never going to get something, it finally clicks into place and soon you're wondering why you struggled to understand it.

    I actually just open sourced my MVVM framework. There's an introductory article at Code Project and you can get it from GitHub. Who knows, it might help?
