Those following the Visual Studio 2013 launch may have noticed that we've taken your UserVoice feedback seriously and brought more Productivity Power Tools into the core Visual Studio experience. We selected the all-time favorites: Enhanced Scrollbar, Move-line and Brace Completion; polished and improved them for prime-time. Once we wrapped up work on Power Tools 2013, we started discussing what we'd like to deliver in the next round of Productivity Power Tools.
One theme you've seen us pursue over the last two releases is the idea of 'Information at your fingertips'. We’d like to help you stay focused
on your code, by letting you take common actions without having to shift your attention to other tool or document windows to get the job done. Four new features that demonstrate this theme are Solution Explorer Errors, Structure Visualizer, Peek Help, and Ctrl+Click To Peek. Solution Explorer Errors Solution Explorer now visualizes what you see in the error list by placing error indications directly on the Solution hierarchy. Creating an error while you code will quickly surface it on Solution Explorer, giving you an early warning system, even if the error list window isn't open. This feature is powerful not only because it surfaces...(Read whole news on source site)

1.What is SSIS? SSIS stands for SQL Server Integration Services also named as ETL and it stands as
Tà TRANSFORM Là LOAD ETL Stands for Extract the data from multiple Sources transform into one form And load into one destination
It is the new data transformation standard for SQL Server 2005 and has replaced the old SQL Server Data Transformation Services. Integration Services has been literally re-written from the ground up, so it is not the same thing as DTS for SQL Server 2000 and earlier. Please be aware of that when you post
DTS packages from SQL Server 2000 can be used with SQL Server 2005, however a seperate tool must be installed to encompass that functionality. Also, in the SQL Server Management Studio, any DTS related information can be found in the Object Browser under Management -> Legacy.
The two main differences you need to be aware of with SSIS is that ActiveX has been re-written and Dynamic Properties is no longer supported. If you do a direct upgrade of your DTS package from SQL Server 2000, any Dynamic Properties tasks will be ported over as stubs (non-working programs) and your ActiveX scripts will not work and need to...(Read whole news on source site)
Today in this blog post we will discuss about Compass APIs available in Windows Phone SDK. After reading this post, you will be able to use your Windows Phone’s device sensors and build some apps and/or games for your targeted users. Before using the compass in your game, make sure to check whether the device supports it or not. The SDK provides APIs to check that too. Let’s start discussing about it. The sealed class “Compass” is available in “Microsoft.Devices.Sensors” namespace and inherits the base class “SensorBase” of type CompassReading. It exposes static property named “IsSupported”, which will let
you know whether the device on which the application is running supports the compass sensor. The base class methods Start() and Stop() starts and stops the acquisition of data from the sensor. To use the compass sensor in your application, make sure to include ID_CAP_SENSORS capabilities in your WMAppManifest.xml file, failing which you will get a AccessViolationException. In the next step, you have to add the DLL Reference of Microsoft.Devices.Sensors.dll into your project. To do this, right click on your Windows Phone project and click “Add Reference”. This will pop up the below “Reference Manager” dialog window where you will find the...(Read whole news on source site)
