In Windows Phone
7, 8 and 8.1 Silverlight apps this is very easy: you just set the Opacity of the Application bar to any value less than 1 as described here
, and the app does not reserve space for the app bar – it just displays the bar on top of the main UI like this:
The problem is, if you set the opacity of what is now called the CommandBar in Windows Phone 8.1 Store apps, the Application bar is translucent indeed - which you can see if you open it - but
the apps still reserves space for it in it’s closed state:
The fix for this is surprisingly easy, but also pretty hard to find if you don’t know what you are looking for. In the end I got a tip by mail from my famous fellow MVP Rudy Huyn
. You just add the following, not very obvious line of code to your app. I added it to my App.Xaml.cs, just before the line “Window.Current.Activate();” ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView().SetDesiredBoundsMode(
Right. And then you get what you want (as is displayed in the first image). And once you enter...(Read whole news on source site)

The Error If you copy Workflow or Workflow Custom Activity objects between your SharePoint VSNET projects, sometimes you would see these errors: Project file must include the .NET Framework assembly 'WindowsBase, PresentationCore' in the reference list. Project file must include the .NET Framework assembly 'WindowsBase' in the reference list. Why This is actually a result of VSNET getting quite confused. It thinks your workflow.xaml files are WPF XAML files.
The Build Action "Page" is special and tells VSNET that this is a WPF Page object. Which then
triggers the compiler requirement that the necessary libraries are not included in the project. This can happen when you copy Workflow or Workflow Custom Activity files from one project to another, then use VSNET to "Include in Project"
The Fix Is to tell VSNET the correct Build Action for an Workflow XAML file:
The correct Build Action for Workflow XAML objects is XamlAppDef Go through your project and check every XAML file. Result

2008 Here I will present how can we get next available node to be planed with HierarchyID data type function. Let's first create hierarchy data structure with script. -- Create a database and table
CREATE DATABASE HierarchyDB
IF ( Object_id('HierarchyTab') > 0 )
DROP TABLE HierarchyTab
CREATE TABLE HierarchyTab
NodeId INT IDENTITY(1, 1)
,NodeDepth VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL
,NodePath HIERARCHYID NOT NULL
-- Creating constraint on hierarchy data type.
ALTER TABLE HierarchyTab ADD CONSTRAINT U_NodePath UNIQUE CLUSTERED (NodePath)
-- Inserting data in above creatd table.
INSERT INTO HierarchyTab(NodeDepth,NodePath,NodeDesc)
Hierarchy data structure as imaged as below.

I had no excuse for not attending DDDNorth
this year, as it was held at Leeds University, a relatively short drive from home. Not that I'd be looking for an excuse - these free events are always superbly organised and provide a valuable opportunity to see sessions from a wide range of speakers without having to take time off work. It's no wonder the tickets are always snapped up so quickly.
As a contractor, I also appreciate the opportunity that DDDNorth affords me to catch up with so many friends and colleagues that I've worked with over the years, and
it was great to see so many familiar faces.
With five slots during the day each offering five concurrent sessions there were plenty of difficult choices to be made. In general, I tried to attend sessions offering information I didn't think I would be able to get from books, blogs or PluralSight - stories from the trenches and architectural concepts rather than deep dives on specific technologies.
The first session I attended was "So You Want To Be A Tech Lead - 10 Things You Need To Do To Succeed
" by Joel Hammond-Turner
