Some notes on adding and removing migrations in Entity Framework core.
EF Code First approach (Create class/es first)
Entity Framework, in Code First Manner, can auto-generate the scaffolding for accessing a database from an app from an app’s model class. In a previous blog I covered some issues wrt using Entity Framework Core with a Universal Windows (Platform) app with a Sqlite backend database. The entities are specified as classes in in a .Net Core class project separate to the app project (within the same solution). The issue addressed in that blog was a problem referencing the class library from the UWP project. This blog revisits the same topic with an emphasis upon the steps required to implement an EF Core backed UWP app.
Issue: Can pair a Windows 10 device with an Arduino device and communicate over RFCOMM. But although can pair two Windows 10 devices over Bluetooth Serial, I can’t serially transmit between them: No serial port for OutGoing end.
This article covers using a Raspberry Pi running a RS4 version of IoT Core as the SurfPad, withe an Arduino devices as the Remote app. Connectivity for this is via Bluetooth..
Turn your old Surface into into a large touchpad. As part 2, specify the buttons and app config via a Json Configuration file. This reworks a previous GitHub project.
Turn your old Surface into into a large touchpad:
Have you got an old RT Surface 1 or 2 gathering dust and don't know what to do with it?
- Create a UWP app to run on a Surface (ARM or x86), or any touchscreen Windows laptop. Could even recycle an Windows Mobile (8.1/10) phone.
- Uses rounded boxes a touch keys.
- Can remotely act as the UI for an app running on any system that supports Serial, Bluetooth(serial) or has network connectivity. Azure IoT Hub is also envisaged as a communication medium.
We are looking a short-cutting getting started with Xamarin Forms for cross platform app development, if you are already a UWP app developer. This article discusses the rudiments of an Xamarin Forms app project from the perspective of a UWP app developer.
So we have seen the need to use Xamarin. So lets get started. This article covers installation in Visual Studio on a Windows device
The Windows 10 UWP app CleanupVS is now in The Store. Its a free app for cleaning up Visual Studio workspaces by recursively deleting bin and obj folders from Visual Studio project folders. This article covers some of the code techniques used in he app.
Including, quick folder count, app metadata, using the Feedback Hub and populating a RichTextbox.
As I discussed in a previous blog article, the Raspberry PI3 Bluetooth driver for Windows 10-IoT-Core becomes errant and misses updates when the update rate is high. This is a known issue with the RPI. This problem does not exist other Windows 10 systems including the Dragonboard running IOT-Core. This article again discusses the problem and presents a workaround that does work. Includes how to disable/enable a driver using devcon.
