WPF anti-pattern: Docking panels
Developers love docking panels (especially Windows developers), they love the ability to 'dock' a panel to the left, top, right bottom of the window, and repeat this with windows inside windows inside windows ad infinitum... Shown below is the docking abili...

UI freezing when CPU hits 100% constantly
I've been working with a team where I've been putting a WPF UI over a set of implementations of a custom interface. Each implementation is a long running process which is handled in standard manner by creating an asynchronous Task<T> and displaying the resu...

Managing themes in WPF
Having just published Simple.Wpf.Terminal as a nuget package I wanted the ability to skin the user control - the more flexibility in the way it looks the more likely it will be used by other devs :) Before getting into the detail, lets look at the solution ...

UI freezing when CPU hits 100% constantly - follow up
I was wondering if my previous post was re-written to remove the use of TPL and just use the standard threading classes in the framework. So the previous post was using the following code: When the limited concurrency scheduler is initialised with a number ...

Modelling units of measure
I've been looking at writing an exercise app, and this would require some kind of units of measure for distance (as well as time). I could use an enum to represent the different types of units - metres, kilometres, yards, miles etc. But this seems to be lac...

Had a couple of wheels built after an accident in Oct 2013, a spoke broke on the way to work in Jan 2014 (spoke breaking not the issue this happens periodically). Took it to a bike near work (large chain) and they explained both wheels had been built incorrectly, they showed this by comparing to other examples in the shop. This cost another £80 to sort out, and I had no choice as I need it fixed to get home. Haven't bothered to contact London Fields Cycles for a refund or explanation because I can't trust this shop - they do not have the expertise to build wheels, which is a requirement for a good mechanic. Avoid at all costs.
