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.

Indian Independence Day Parade at Edison

Hope you all saw wonderful Independence Day either live or on T.V. On Sunday (08/14/2005), even I was at Independence parade in Edison, N.J. For a moment, I thought it should be on 15th, however, realized that no one will show up on 15th as its Monday. The acting governor and some other white and black chicks have shown up as honor of guests. The weather being 94% humid and ‘Feel like Temp’ 106F (sorry don’t know in C.) even black chicks turned red.

There were some trucks pulling the display sets, over which some school girls are dancing, and old nannies are waving their hands for no reason. Most importantly, ABCD – DJ’s, with French beard, spiked up hair yells – “All the lady’s put your hands up in the air.” as if he were in Dance club, of course, playing desi song – Doom title song rather than ’50 cent’

We went there to eat south Indian thali and came across the Parade. Overall it was okay not bad. But, I am afraid that over years it may turn up good or as worse as a night club party.

Hope you enjoyed the update about the celebration of the Indian Independence Day at Edison. Next year I will be at NYC parade.
