Link to online resource which covers most of the aspect of passing this exam can be found at the following URL.

The following points will help you remember some of the important aspect of passing the 70-536 exam.[Application Development Foundation]

  1. The StringBuilder[System.Text namespace] class is used for optimized string concatenation. For more detailed information follow the below url
  2. PrincipalPermission is used to gain insight into user's credential. For more info refere the following URL.
  3. The SmtpClient class should be used to send e-mail by using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol[System.Net.Mail].
  4. Attachment content can be a String, Stream, or file name. You can specify the content in an attachment by using any of the Attachment constructors. For more details refer the following content
  5. The FileInfo class of System.IO namespace contains the following methods
    Delete(), Move() and Copy(). This does not contain the Rename method.
  6. Using Code access security you can use the OleDbPermission to grant permission to use any OLE DB data sources.
    For more info check out the following url
  7. The XmlSerializer serializes and deserializes objects into and from XML documents. The XmlSerializer also enables you to control how objects are encoded into XML. For more info check out the following url
  8. TextWriterTraceListener listens to all messages generated by both the Debug and Trace classes. When you add a listener to the Trace.Lsiteners collection, it will listen to messages generated both by Trace and Debug classes
    To add a trace listerner use the following syntax
    Trace.Listeners.Add(new TextWriterTraceListener("trace.txt"))
  9. The IDisposable interface defines a method to release allocated unmanaged resources.

JavaScript Function Spaghetti Code

In this post we will have a look at the spaghetti code created by functions and how to avoid them. First lets quickly go through why this is a cause of concern.

Problems with Function Spaghetti Code

Variables/ functions are added to the global scope
The code is not modular
There's potential for duplicate function names
Difficult to maintain
No namespace sense.
Let's take for example the following set of functions and check whats the issue with them.
// file1.js
function saveState(obj) {     // write code here to saveState of some object     alert('file1 saveState'); }
// file2.js (remote team or some third party scripts) function saveState(obj, obj2) {      // further code...     alert('file2 saveState"); }
Now the problem here is if your application is using saveState() then the execution of saveState() which one to call is determined by the script loading.  The later script overrides same functions already defined by earlier script.
For e.g.

If this script is refer…

JavaScript - The this keyword

"this" is one of the most misunderstood construct in JavaScript.  To understand this first lets go through how to create a construction function in JavaScript.  A constructor function is a function which is used to create instances of objects in JavaScript.

You define a constructor function using the same notation that you use to define a normal JavaScript function.  The convention to follow is to capitalize the first letter of the function name.

This requirement is not enforced by the JavaScript language but it is a generally accepted practice and there are many benefits which we will shortly discuss.

Let's define a constructor function to hold our menu information.

function Menu() { }
So, in the above snippet you have a constructor function named Menu defined. At present this function doesn't do anything good.

Let's see how to invoke this function

var menu = new Menu();
Let's add some public properties to this function.
function Menu() { this.menuName = &q…
