Asynchronous method calling using events and delegates - CodeProject®

Introduction to Article

In this article, we’ll elaborate how to call methods asynchronously. As we all know, delegates are used to call methods asynchronously, but here we’ll combine asynchronous function calling and the event handling concept for achieving Asynchronous Processing. To avoid confusion, let’s define what we are going to do in this example shortly.

We’ll develop a Task class that contains an IterateFile() method and three events – StatusEvent, Complete, ProgressChanged. StatusEvent will keep track of the file status during file processing. The Complete event is raised when file processing completes. The ProgressChanged event is raised when the iteration completes.
We’ll also develop the FileProcessing class that contains the Processing() method and StatusEvent. StatusEvent is raised when file processing status changes.
We’ll have a Windows Form that displays all this information.

WPF: Webcam Control - CodeProject®

Introduction to article by 

I have on several occasions scoured the net for a simple to use WPF webcam control and either my search queries were awful or I just wasn't comfortable with whatever I found. This webcam interest was recently increased when I read an article, here on CodeProject, that referred to an application that made use of a webcam. It was a Silverlight article and the ease with which one could utilize a webcam in Silverlight made me envious of WPF's little brother (or is it sister?). The VideoBrush in Silverlight is especially a nice touch.
It is with this pain and envy in mind that I decided to try my hand at creating a WPF control that could;
  1. Display webcam video with little coding effort
  2. Allow saving of webcam video to harddisk, with little coding effort
  3. Save the webcam video in a variety of video formats

Animated GIFs

There were a couple of great articles on animated GIFs this weekend.

GIFs are one of the oldest image formats used on the web. Throughout their history, they have served a huge variety of purposes, from functional to entertainment. Now, 25 years after the first GIF was created, they are experiencing an explosion of interest and innovation that is pushing them into the terrain of art. In this episode of Off Book, we chart their history, explore the hotbed of GIF creativity on Tumblr, and talk to two teams of GIF artists who are evolving the form into powerful new visual experiences.
