Extending MonoRail ViewComponent

leave a comment »

Quick note before I leave my desk for a meeting

Always apply ViewComponentDetailsAttribute on your custom ViewComponent like this

[ViewComponentDetails(string name, string sections, 
    Type CacheKeyFactory, ViewComponentCache Cache)]

This will prevent your custom view component name clash with base component name.
Okay ! got to go

This would be a continue part from my previous post, what I tried to do is find out how to use ActiveRecord “NHiberate to be accurate” in my reporting scenario (not a CRUD) after a quick search, It came up with a few blog posts

It will take another post for me to wrap up how I come up with …. stay tune.

Edit: I shouldn’t have missed, exploring test case

Ubuntu "Dock It Mac Way"

leave a comment »

It almost 2 months since my busy schedule started, I was unable to find sometime to spend with my beloved Gutsy until today * I am no expert in Ubuntu * in the exploration process I decided to upgrade a few packages to it latest version and well I come across one cool package:

Avant Window Navigator (Awn) is a dock-like bar which sits at the bottom of the screen. It has support for launchers, task lists, and third party applets.The Awn project is the development of the ‘dock’, avant-window-navigator, and its corresponding shared library ‘libawn’, which is used to develop applets.

For more detail instruction read it @ or direct link Avant Window Navigator enjoy fun ;)

Visual Studio 2008 stink without ReSharper

with one comment

Oh ! man I though VS2008 will give developer more productivity I was wrong.
Without ReSharper I feel like I take my time writing stupid code that do nothing.

VS2008 Refactoring tool is suck !

However the ReSharper 4.0 for Visual Studio 2008 is not yet release, but I can install the 3.1 with the following command

msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.3.1.Full.VS80.msi VSVERSION=9.0

And here we go all the goodness command are come back to me.
If you don’t believe me watch demo video feature highlight.

This is how a GIANT learn to copy files

leave a comment »

Vista SP1 Notable Change – most notable change is MS is still learning how perform file operation (Copy/Move/Delete) the right way.

  • Improves performance over Windows Vista’s current performance across the following scenarios1:
    • 25% faster when copying files locally on the same disk on the same machine
    • 45% faster when copying files from a remote non-Windows Vista system to a SP1 system
    • 50% faster when copying files from a remote SP1 system to a local SP1 system

Oh and here is the funny part:

Improves the copy progress estimation when copying files within Windows Explorer to about two seconds.

What so exciting improvement to be expect in the list :D Well, it sound like we have to wait for SP1+ before purchasing product release by MS.
I wonder does SP1+ = version 3.0 :)) anyway enjoy reading detail here.
