Compile code at runtime

Sometimes it is necessary to compile code explicitly at runtime. For example you can create a small user defined shell. Today I will show you how this can be done. At first we need the following: MemoryStream, StreamWriter and namespaces System.Reflection and System.CodeDom.Compiler. This works as follows: Define a source code that will be compiled […]

Sometimes we have to know what happens inside other objects like a collection where new entries are added or removed. So we have to make use of a nice feature called Events. In this post I will give you a first insight in Events with a snippet for an observable collection called WatchedList. Observable collections […]


Introducing Extension Methods for Arrays

With Extension methods you can extend the existing funtionality of objects and types. In this case we will extend the functionality of an Array. So we need to create two extensions. One for changing the size and one for appending a new element. What do we need for this? At first we need a static […]
