How to set property of an object created using Reflection?

The VB.NET to C#.NET converter tool from Developer Fusion is awesome! It convert code from VB to C# or vice versa and primarily used by enthusiasts to learn the other language syntax. The tool does a great deal of work in trans-coding. However, not every thing is translated appropriately and you may have to clean up a little bit. Here is an example of issues I faced while using Reflection. Continue reading

Class is ambiguous in the namespace – Fixed

Last night, I slept early 10.45 PM, however wokeup @ 5.45 AM after having my regular # of sleep hours. I have tried my best to sleep for next couple of hours, as there is yet another long work day is awaiting me.

I stopped by work 8 AM this morning and started to work on my issues with code getting work on Visual Studio 2005 IDE. The following errors from yesterday’s port pissed me off.

  • Compiler Error Message: BC30456: ‘InitializeCulture’ is not a member of ‘ASP.login_aspx’.
  • ASPNET: Make sure that the class defined in this code file matches the ‘inherits’ attribute, and that it extends the correct base class (e.g. Page or UserControl).
  • Login is ambiguous in the namespace MyNameSpace.MyApplication

I had a source code with .aspx file containing

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" 
          Inherits="MyNamespace.MyApplication.Login" %>

So, for some reason I changed CodeFile to CodeBehind and voila all the above problems fixed. Now, I need to figure out how in the hell I had CodeFile instead of CodeBehind and whatz the difference between them.

ICICI Bank Sucks! Chant goes on all over.

ICICI Bank – are their services worth? Definitely not, ICICI Bank Sucks. I was under presumption that I was the only guy got screwed up with ICICI bank services. Recently, I have come across other ICICI customers, who got pissed of what ICICI is offering. So, I have decided to compile list of posts and -ve reviews about ICICI so as to spread the message, ‘ICICI Bank sucks’, to everyone.

Do you have worse experience with ICICI too? Should you think that your experience with ICICI helps other refrain from their services, please let me know.

Which browser is faster?

Which browser is faster?

The other day while I was browsing through fatwallet, I came across a posting that gave information about Free Opera 8.02 version download.

As usual I have gone through the forum and started download the software. To my surprise, I came to know that Opera has comeup with many feature that are now being developed as add-ons for my favoirte web browser, Fire fox. I have installed and registered the Opera 8.02 browser for free. It has all nice features like multi tabs, authors view of page and many other user’s preference views, etc. The browser itself is pretty fast. Opera could not handle the style sheets as good as IE, Fire fox. What I have noticed with Fire fox is that it takes lot of time to switch / startup the application itself. Other than that I like everything about it. I also made a quick search on web to know the top browsers available till date. Some of the sofwares are completely differnt package and some work over internet explorer.

When have bunch of browsers available more or less with same features, I thought of conducting a small test on the some of highly rated browsers available from This test is about how fast a browser can render, how much memory it takes up and how soon it will free the memory. Continue reading
