WPF: P2P Chess - CodeProject

Introduction to article

The .NET Framework provides developers with a rich set class libraries that enable creation of visually compelling applications that can effectively communicate with each other. The two technologies that afford us this luxury are WPF and WCF. WPF provides the eye-candy while WCF enables communication. Some Windows (Win 7 and Vista) features also enable discovery and ad-hoc collaboration making it easier to find peers and send invitations for collaboration.
People Near Me (PNM), Windows Contacts, and Invitations are the Windows features that enable discovery and ad-hoc collaboration.
It is with all this in mind that I decided to develop an application that would make use of the previously mentioned technologies, and what better application than a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) chess game. P2P Chess specifically makes use of WPF, WCF, and PNM.

Silverlight Drag and Drop for Business Applications - CodeProject

Introduction to article

In the development of business websites, we have encountered some hurdles in the use of Silverlight, in particular using the drag and drop functionality that was not easily solved by a quick search of the internet. There are many examples of using Silverlight drag and drop with file system utilities, but how does it work if you want to have drag and drop in your business application where the objects come from your database instead of a file system? All the examples we found ignore the need for a business application to know exactly what moved and from where and the need to update the database with the information that changed.
This article presents the solution we came up with to solve the problem of knowing which object was moved and details about that object. Due to the extensive functionality of Silverlight, there are probably other ways to solve this problem.

A Video Converter in Visual Basic .NET - CodeProject

Use of FFmpegImage via WikipediaIntroduction to Article

This is a simple video converter developed with .NET while playing with ffmpeg.
Ffmpeg is an open source command line audio / video converter. ffmpeg uses command line arguments for its conversion and this is what we are going to do with our .NET application. We will execute ffmpeg from our application and send these parameters to ffmpeg without displaying the command line window.
Download the source code here to see how it works.

Parsing XML file in VB.NET using DOM - CodeProject

A graphical depiction of a very simple xml doc...Image via WikipediaIntroduction to Article

There are many versions of XML parsers/readers on the Internet and on CodeProject (including my own in C/C++). This one was written several years ago in VB 6.0 and is based on DOM (Document Object Model). I almost forgot about it until I recently decided to upgrade (or to see if it is possible without much hassle) VB 6.0 projects to VB 2008 (VB 2010 does not recognize VB 6.0 project’s files). I already had a very time consuming experience upgrading a project with many drawing and database related functions and arrays, because it requires you to manually rewrite the old code.
XML parser does not have any drawing functions or VB6-arrays and was upgraded to VB.NET automatically, though generating warnings related mostly to default property of the object. I removed these lines from code but for anyone interested, I left the _UpgradeReport.htm in the project.
