Parallel for loop in C# 4.0

Now days we are getting our computer equipped with more and more power even now we are getting quad core processor is also at lower price. Since we have multicore processors are now so we can take advantages of multicore processor with parallel execution in C# 4.0. There are some time consuming task for the computer for example a long for loop or similar kind of things. This kind of task can be done parallel with parallel class in C# 4.0.

Now in C# 4.0 you have the Parallel static class with the help of this you can perform task parallel very easily. In this post I am going to explain Parallel for loop. Let’s take a very simple example. First lets create a example with simple for loop. Following is code for that.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace Parallel
{
class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i <=100000; i++)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
       
    }
}
}

In the above its a normal loop which increments I and then print the that number into the console screen and Here is the output.

Ouput1

Here in the output you can see its sequentially process one by one now lets change this code to parallel for loop like following.

using System;

namespace Parallel
{
class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        System.Threading.Tasks.Parallel.For(0, 100000, i =>
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
        );
        Console.ReadLine();
    }
}
}

Here in the above code you can see that I have used parallel for which also prints the Incremented integer in console application. Now let’s run that code and see the output as following.

Output2

If you see the output very carefully then you can see that its not processing sequentially one by one but its processing it parallel and its will be much faster if you have multicore processor in your computer. But beware if you are going to run in simple processor computer its going to take more time then normal computer. That’s it. Hope you liked it.. Stay tuned for more.. Till that happy programming..

How to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0

Recently Microsoft has released ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2, I am getting lots of request from readers that about creating Web API. So I thought it will be a good idea to write a blog post about how to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0.

So let’s get started via creating an ASP.NET Core 1.0 Web Application like following.



Once you click on ASP.NET Web Application, It will ask whether you need to create Web Application or Web API application. We are going to Web API so I am going to select Web API Application like following. Please note that in ASP.NET Core 1.0 there is no separate libraries or DLLs required for creating web APIs. This is just a project template.



Now once you click on OK It will create a Web API application with default values controller and program.cs.  As you know Program.cs is now starting point for the ASP.NET Core 1.0 application so It contains all the required configuration and startup items. Following is a code for that.
using System.IO; using Microsoft.Asp…

How to use migration with Entity Framework Core

Entity framework core is  the lightweight, extensible and cross-platform version of Entity Framework. Before some time, Microsoft has Released a new version of Entity Framework RC2. I have written a couple of blog post about Entity framework code first migration earlier for Entity framework 6.0. So there was a couple of request coming for writing a blog post about Entity Framework Core RC2 migration. So I thought it will be a good idea to give an overview how database migration works in Entity Framework Core RC2. This post will cover a basic scenario where we are going to create the database with existing ASP.NET Identity migration and then we are going to create a new model and have that migration applied in the database.

How to use Entity Framework Migrations: Let’s get started, To demonstrate entity framework core migrations, I am going to create a sample asp.net core web application like following.



Once we select asp.net core application it will appear the following dialog.

Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC and RazorPDF

Update: I have written a new blog post about better approach to create a PDF with asp.net mvc- You can find that following location.- A Better Solution to create PDF with Rotativa and ASP.NET MVC
In this post we are going to learn how we can easily create PDF from ASP.Net application with the help of Razor PDF NuGet package.

About Razor PDF:
This NuGet package is created by Al Nyveldt It internally uses ITextSharp an open source PDF convertor library. RazorPDF uses Razor View engine to create iTextXML which is in tern used to produce PDF file. You can get more information about that at below link.

https://www.nuget.org/packages/RazorPDF

Example(Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC):
So what we are we waiting for ? Let’s create a simple example. To create example first thing we need to a create and ASP.Net MVC application.
