C# Questions and Answers

What are namespaces?

Namespaces are heavily used in C# programming in two ways. First, the .NET Framework uses namespaces to organize its many classes. Second, declaring your own namespaces can help you control the scope of class and method names in larger programming projects. Use the namespace keyword to declare a namespace

Namespaces have the following properties:
  • They organize large code projects.
  • They are delimited by using the . operator.
  • The using directive obviates the requirement to specify the name of the namespace for every class.
  • The global namespace is the "root" namespace: global::System will always refer to the .NET Framework namespace System.

Namespaces are a way of grouping type names and reducing the chance of name collisions. A namespace provides a fundamental unit of logical code grouping.

What is the GAC?

GAC stands for global assembly cache. It is a machine-wide common language runtime code cache. The global assembly cache stores assemblies specifically designated to be shared by several applications on the computer.

What is a class?

A class is a construct that enables you to create your own custom types by grouping together variables of other types, methods and events. A class is like a blueprint. It defines the data and behavior of a type.

ASP.NET Questions and Answers - Part 2

How can we prevent browser from caching an ASPX page?  Use the SetNoStore method of the HttpCachePolicy class to direct the client not to store the responses in its history. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.httpcachepolicy.setnostore.aspx In which event are the controls fully loaded? On Load event. ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.page(v=vs.100).aspx )  The Page object calls the OnLoad method on the Page object, and then recursively does the same for each child control until the page and all controls are loaded. The Load event of individual controls occurs after the Load event of the page. Use the OnLoad event method to set properties in controls and to establish database connections. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178472(v=vs.100).aspx ) How we can force all the validation controls to run? Using Page.Validate() method to instructs any validation controls included on the page to validate their assigned information. Read more at h
