The InfoPath 2013 Preview doesn't really have many new features. But this one little one made me smile.
In InfoPath 2013, the Clip Art ribbon is replaced with Online Pictures.
For those of you wondering what was there before, in InfoPath 2010 it looked like this. Yes it's that little button that we never used. This dialog appears when you click it.
Searching for a victim
A few things would make this even more awesome: Add my commonly used Clip Arts to my skydrive, and link it up. This probably works already, except my Office 2013 Preview isn't hooked up to my normal Microsoft Account. Allow additional websites, I find iconfinder.com
to be extremely good. Or allow URL to be used directly in the dialog. ...(Read whole news on source site)
The ASP.NET MVC 4 Internet template adds some new, very useful features which are built on top of SimpleMembership. These changes add some great features, like a much simpler and extensible membership API and support for OAuth. However, the new account management features require SimpleMembership and won't work against existing ASP.NET Membership Providers. I'll start with a summary of top things you need to know, then dig into a lot more detail. Summary: SimpleMembership has been designed as a replacement for traditional the previous ASP.NET Role and Membership provider system SimpleMembership
solves common problems people ran into with the Membership provider system and was designed for modern user / membership / storage needs SimpleMembership integrates with the previous membership system, but you can't use a MembershipProvider with SimpleMembership The new ASP.NET MVC 4 Internet application template AccountController requires SimpleMembership and is not compatible with previous MembershipProviders You can continue to use existing ASP.NET Role and Membership providers in ASP.NET 4.5 and ASP.NET MVC 4 - just not with the ASP.NET MVC 4 AccountController The existing...(Read whole news on source site)

This is part of a series of posts about NHibernate Pitfalls. See the entire collection here
. NHibernate supports the declaration of properties of user-defined types, that is, not entities, collections or primitive types. These are used for mapping a database columns, of any type, into a different type, which may not even be an entity; think, for example, of a custom user type that converts a BLOB
column into an Image
. User types must implement interface NHibernate.UserTypes.IUserType
. This interface specifies an Equals
method that is used for comparing two instances of the user type. If
this method returns false
, the entity is marked as dirty, and, when the session is flushed, will trigger an UPDATE
. So, in your custom user type, you must implement this carefully so that it is not mistakenly considered changed. For example, you can cache the original column value inside of it, and compare it with the one in the other instance. Let’s see an example implementation of a custom user type that converts a Byte
from a BLOB column into an Image
