Solved! "exePath must be specified when not running inside a stand alone exe" Embedding Mono

Currently i'm Embedding Mono in XChat, but it was giving me errors trying to get values from Configuration File System.ArgumentException: exePath must be specified when not running inside a stand alone exe. at System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfigurationInternal (ConfigurationUserLevel userLevel, System.Reflection.Assembly calling_assembly, System.String exePath) [0x00000] at System.Configuration.ClientConfigurationSystem.System.Configuration.Internal.IInternalConfigSystem.GetSection (System.String configKey) [0x00000] at System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.GetSection (System.String sectionName) [0x00000] The Solution is simple: pass the assembly path to mono exec in the first argument for the function mono_jit_exec. char * boot_assembly = "myAssembly.exe" ... MonoDomain * dom = mono_jit_init(boot_assembly); MonoAssembly * masm = mono_domain_assembly_open(dom,boot_assembly); char *argv [1]; [0] = boot_assembly; [1] = NULL; mono_jit_exec (dom, masm, 1,argv);

How to MD5 in .NET & Mono

Simple code: using System.Security.Cryptography; //... private readonly static MD5CryptoServiceProvider md5 = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider(); public static string CreatePasswordMD5(string password) { MD5CryptoServiceProvider md5 = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider(); byte[] bs = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(password); bs = md5.ComputeHash(bs); System.Text.StringBuilder s = new System.Text.StringBuilder(); foreach (byte b in bs) { s.Append(b.ToString("x2").ToLower()); } return s.ToString(); } // Usage: Console.WriteLine(CreatePasswordMD5("p@ssw0rk!"));

MonoDevelop 0.14 Short Demo

He comenzado a crear unos videos demos de MonoDevelop 0.14 y este es el primero. Aun estoy investigando como agregarle mas resolucion a los videos se ven bastante borrosos.

Ejemplo de Evolution#

Para quien necesite agregar un contacto a Evolution con Evolution#, el codigo es el siguiente. using System; using Evolution; namespace myEvolutionAutomation { class MainClass { public static void Main(string[] args) { Evolution.Book b = new Book(); Contact contact = new Contact(); contact.BlogUrl = ""; contact.FullName = "ThePumpkin"; contact.Title = "Mr"; Console.WriteLine("Can Open Book?= {0}",b.Open(true)); Console.WriteLine("Can Add contact ={0}",b.AddContact(contact)); b.CommitContact(contact); } } }
