.NET threading: native and managed thread IDs do not per se correlate

Next time I run into .NET and native threading issues:

Main UI threads often have a correlation between managed and native thread IDs.

But for other threads, you cannot be really sure.

Some background articles on this:

IlMerge is on NuGet.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/19

IlMerge is a great way to merge multiple .NET assemblies into one, and I use it most often to combine assemblies with console applications so I end up with one executable..

However getting the latest version always was a hassle as the ilmerge download link was unclear about the version number.

Until I found out that IlMerge is on NuGet.

To get started with NuGet, either download the NuGet GUI or command-line version, then use either of these entry points to work with NuGet packages:

There is much more to the Package Manager Console and the Package Manager Dialog.

WPF Tutorial | Dependency Properties

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/17

Thanks to the answers for .net – What is a dependency property? – Stack Overflow, I came across this really nice WPF Tutorial | Dependency Properties.

It has one of the best explanations on Dependency Properties I’ve ever seen, and it is available online for free (:

And yes, this post is also tagged Delphi, as DSharp provides

So Dependency Properties are not just .NET any more (:

Interesting presentation at EKON 16: MSBuild Inside the Microsoft Build Engine from Sebastian Gingter

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/11

I missed EKON 16 as both they and we moved outside the regular conference season.

So I missed this session: EKON 16: MSBuild // Speaker Deck that has these GitHub source examples: gingters/EKON16_MSBuild.

Thanks Sebastian Gingter for pointing me at this!

msbuild is used by both Visual Studio and Delphi for building projects, and this session gave me some good ideas to improve the Continuous Integration projects I already had into place.

Visual Studio: Find unused code? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/04

Interesting answers to Visual Studio: Find unused code? – Stack Overflow.

  • Using Visual Studio 2008+ to remove unused using statements
  • Using the [Obsolete] attribute of code you suspect is not used.
  • Using ReSharper
  • Using NDepend
  • Using FxCop
