How to use syntax highlighter with open live writer

Microsoft has open sourced windows live writer as “Open Live Writer” and is now part of .NET Foundation, It was a great move but as a part of modernizing the windows live writer they have started removing the functionality and adding some new functionality. Eventually, they are going to add the plugins but right now there is no support for that. I have been using windows live writer for more than 5 years now and I was using syntax highlighter for highlighting code on this blog. If you are not familiar with syntax highlighter you can find more information on the following link.

It is a fully functional self-contained code syntax highlighter developed in  JavaScript. As now Open writer does not support plugin for the time being, I have to find another solution to write the blog post and do some syntax highlighting. So, I have found a way to do this and I would like to share this with you. In this blog post, we are going to learn how we can use syntax highlighter other way.

I was using preCode syntax highlighter plugin. It’s an open source plugin and provides a great plugin for syntax highlighter.

But as Open Live Writer does not support plugin, There is no way to directly Integrate that plugin, But fortunately, precode syntax highlighter plugin comes with a desktop application was so now you can run that desktop application via finding it on windows 10 like below.


Once you run the preCode Code manager desktop app, It will run the application like following.


Here you can put your code make settings as per your choice on the right side like below.


Then just click on the copy to clipboard and close. It will copy syntax highlighter code in the memory.  Now click on source tab at the bottom on the open live writer like below.


Then paste that code like below.


And now publish your post and it will look like below.
function helloWorld{
    alert("hello world");
That's it. It is very easy to use precode code manager with the open live writer. Hope you liked it. Stay tuned for more!.

Launching DotNetJalps Communities

Everyday I got lots of emails asking about technical things and Every time I am trying to give proper answer to them. But due to lack of time it was always not possible to reply all the emails as I have professional commitments also. So that’s why I decided to launch DotNetJalps community where people can ask questions and If I am not there then also another people can answer the question. Another benefit of communities will be the solution given in that particular answer will be visible to all the users of community.
So I have created Google+ community for that. Following is a link for that.

I request to ask your questions there instead of sending me emails and I would also encourage you participate in discussion. I am also going to share all my blog post there. You guys can also share your links and discuss various technology related things.

But please make sure there should technology related things only. So please join my community ask question and give answer to people.

Stay tuned for more!!

Why multitasking does not work any more

Still lots of people thinks that multitasking is good. If you can do multitask then you are more productive.. Every employer loves this.. But wait are you sure you are more productive when you do multitasking nope I don’t think so.. Here are few reasons multitasking does not work any more..


Have you ever checked quality of your work when you are doing multiple work. Have you ever carefully read your emails when you talk on phone or do other things while you are writing email. I have tried this many times and I have done many mistakes. When I tried to write emails while I am doing other things most I have made mistake like incorrect spelling,incorrect  grammar,forgot attachment etc. I am sure you all gone through this dilemma. From my experience whenever I have done multitasking I have loose quality of work. In today’s word quality is everything. Let’s take example of doctor they have to deal with patient’s life and disease and if they do not have quality then imagine what will be side effect of that on your body. So quality is everything and if you do two task or project at same time I am 100% sure you can not complete your work with 100% quality.


When you do multitasking you are shifting your focus from one task to another task and you can not 100% involve your self with one task because your brain will  think about another task also. And if you loose your focus then it will automatically decrease your productivity.

It’s slowing you down:

Lots of people believe that multitasking is going to save your time but that is not true. Multitasking will slow you down..don’t believe yes it is right. Try a exercise write a business email while talking to your loved one and then measure time taken for writing this email and then think if you are writing email without concentrating on any other thing or phone how much time it will take I am sure you will feel that you can take much smaller amount time then writing email while talking on phone. So it will take longer then you expected because you are switching between phone and emails and your concentration also jumping from one thing to another thing.


It will give you lots of stress when you do multiple things at single time because your focus is keep jumping from one thing to another thing and vice-versa. Your mind constantly remind you that you also need to concentrate on another thing also and you can not do efficient work on a single thing.


Take an exercise.. Talk on a phone while watching TV.. then once you conclude try to remember thing that you watched on TV. I’m sure you are going to miss lots of important details. Because you are interrupting one task to suddenly focus on another task and ultimately you are going to loose important details and your memory will be poor.

There many more reasons why multitasking does not work but this are top five reason why multitasking is not going to work for human beings. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more..
