MiloszKrajewski/LibZ: the alternative to ILMerge (Resolve instead of merge assemblies)

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/30

ILMerge has all sorts of drawbacks with things like XAML, WPF, NHibernate, dynamically loaded assemblies and reflection.

Jeffrey Richter: Excerpt #2 from CLR via C#, Third Edition | Microsoft Press blog has an interesting approach based on adding a callback to the AppDomain’s ResolveAssembly event with some steps so you can embed assemblies as resources which you then – unlike ILmerge- dynamically resolve.

Those steps require a bit of manual labour which is taken away by MiloszKrajewski/LibZ: LibZ, the alternative to ILMerge.

The repository on github even compresses your assembly resources.

How to secure memory? – Medo’s Home Page

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/15

Sometime you might want to protect your data in memory – the greatest example is when dealing with anything related to passwords. It is simply not smart to keep that data around in a plain-text. In .NET there are multiple methods you can use for this purpose, starting with SecureString, ProtectedMemory, and my favorite ProtectedData.…

Windows 10 – language neutral batch file to start Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/22

A while ago, I bitched that Microsoft moved away the Windows Update out of the Control panel into a language depended place (in Windows 10 1511 update broke the Hyper-V networking – Fix network connection issues).

Since then I had to maintain too many locales running Windows 10. So here is the batch file:

for /f "delims=" %%A in ('PowerShell -Command "(Get-Culture).Name"') do explorer "%LocalAppData%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\%%A\AAA_SystemSettings_MusUpdate_UpdateActionButton.settingcontent-ms"

It uses these tricks:

  1. Set output of a command as a variable (in this case a for loop variable)
  2. Execute PowerShell script in a .bat file
  3. PowerShell Get-Culture (which gets a .NET CultureInfo instance)
  4. CultureInfo.Name property (which has the nl-NL, en-US, etc codes in it)

It replaced this simple batch-file which has worked for like 10 years:

%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe url.dll,FileProtocolHandler wuapp.exe

Unity IoC container: tips, tricks and dirty hacks

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/03

The #Fellows | Unity IoC container: tips, tricks and dirty hacks post is a very readable and to-the-point introduction to Unity IoC focussing on Dependency Injection. Implementation details of various IoC/DI frameworks differ, so some keywords:

  • Container
  • InjectionConstructor
  • InjectionProperty
  • Inversion of Control
  • Named registration (or keyed registration)
  • PerResolveLifetimeManager
  • Register
  • RegisterType
  • Resolve
  • ResolvedParameter
