PSTip : Open file and open folder dialog

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Did you had issues whenever the users were expected to provide the full path for the file or folder to work on with a script?
Well, instead of asking them to type the path, you can use the Winforms API to choose the file/ folder. I have create couple of methods to add into my PS modules for using in this scenario.

FunctionOpen-File
{
      param
      (
            [String] $Title = "Choose the file",
            [String] $Filter = "*.*",
            [String] $InitialDirectory = "C:\"
      )

      [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms") | Out-Null
      $dialog= New-ObjectSystem.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog
      $dialog.Title = $Title
      $dialog.Filter= $Filter
      $dialog.InitialDirectory = $InitialDirectory
      $result= $dialog.ShowDialog()
      if($result-eq [System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult]::OK)
      {
            $dialog.FileName
      }
     
else
      {
            [String]::Empty
      }
}

FunctionOpen-Folder
{
      [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms") | Out-Null
      $dialog = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserDialog
      $dialog.RootFolder = "Desktop"
      $dialog.ShowNewFolderButton = $true
      $result= $dialog.ShowDialog()

      if($result-eq [System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult]::OK)
      {
            $dialog.SelectedPath

Custom View Engine in ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6 with Dynamic View Location

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
          Introduction:                    Long time ago, I have written a blog post about how to create a custom view engine in ASP.NET MVC. I thought to write the same for ASP.NET 6 and MVC 6. In this article, I will show you how to create a custom view engine in ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6. (Note that ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6 is still in beta, so things might change in future)           Description:                       Assuming that you have created an ASP.NET 5 web application
(note that I am using beta3 at the time of writing). Let's say, you have Theme1 and Theme2 folders inside Views folder and you want to show views from Theme1 or Theme2 folder randomly. Let's implement this by adding MyRazorViewEngine class which inherits from RazorViewEngine class,   public class MyRazorViewEngine : RazorViewEngine { public MyRazorViewEngine(IRazorPageFactory pageFactory, IRazorViewFactory viewFactory, IViewLocationExpanderProvider viewLocationExpanderProvider, ...(Read whole news on source site)

Initial thoughts on Raspberry Pi 2

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
When the Raspberry Pi first came out a few years back, it seemed like a very interesting idea in theory. A tiny computer for $35, completely self-contained, with built-in Ethernet, HDMI and a couple of USB ports. It peaked my interest briefly, but I never got around to trying it out. Fast forward to 2015 […]

Management Bullshit

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
A lot of the advice you see about management is bullshit. For example, I recently read some post, probably on some pretentious site like medium.com, about how you shouldn't send emails late as night if you're a manager because it sends the wrong message to your people. It creates the impression that your people should be working all the time and destroys the idea of work-life balance. Don't get me wrong, I get where there coming from. The 1990s. For some reason, this piece of management advice made me angry. Let me describe my team. I have one person in San Francisco,
two in Canada, one in Sweden, one in Copenhagen, a couple in Ohio, one in Australia, and I live in Washington. So pray tell me, when exactly can I send an email that won't be received by someone out of "normal" working hours? I believe the advice is well meaning, but it's severely out of date with how distributed modern teams work today. I also think it mythologizes managers. It creates this mindset that managers wield some magical power in the actions they take. True, there's an implicit power structure at work between managers and those they manage. But healthy organizations understand...(Read whole news on source site)
