Auto reload application config in .NET

Reflect config file changes in application in a runtime

In .NET working with configuration is really easy and there are bunch of .NET classes that rely on config values so you do not have to specify values in their constructors. For me it a common practice to instantiate database connections of WCF client by only creating an instance with parameterless constructor while keeping values in config file. In case you have to use these kind of classes in a long running process, like windows service on which other processes are depending on...read more

This article is base don the article I wrote in September last year. Basically I wrote this piece of code because I needed something really lite for one way binding.

By default object instances in .NET are never "trully" clonned. Instead .NET is doing shallow copy of instances which means if you have one variable which is object instance and you assign that variable to other variable, both of them will point the same instance of that object. Basically you created two pointers of the same object instance. ...read more

HTML is a markup language same as XML, but still there are differences which make dealing with them a bit different. Basically HTML is a strict structure in terms of node sets and attribute sets, but in general more documents online are not exactly following the proper structure since browsers usually manage to deal with rendering out the document in UI. However, this makes it more difficult to read them in case you want to from website itself as you cannot apply all XML rules since structure is not strictly followed. ...read more
