Steve Jobs to Open Apple’s Developer Conference on June 7

Posted on Updated on

It’s official: Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will start on Monday, June 7 at 10:00 a.m with a keynote address by Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs.

Although Apple has lately leaked far more information than usual, most notoriously with the double leak of the next iPhone prototype and an iPod Touch with a camera, the anticipation levels for this year’s WWDC are as big as ever.

Besides the next iPhone, big sales figures for the iPad and some jabs at Android, we can probably expect a surprise or two. When asked by a concerned fan whether Apple has some good announcements prepared for the WWDC, Steve Jobs promised him he “won’t be disappointed.” That’s all we ask, really.

The conference runs from June 7 to June 11, providing advanced content for developers across five key technology tracks: Application Frameworks, Internet & Web, Graphics & Media, Developer Tools and Core OS. Apple engineers will deliver more than 100 solutions-oriented technical sessions and labs to developers in attendance.

C# Color Names And Codes

Posted on Updated on

Last night i was working on a project of C# and required some color schemes for row color of a grid, and first time i got familiarity with System.Drawing namespace.  Its simply amazing …. really solved my many problems in just playing mode. First i use its colors and thought should share with you people. Some others features will discuss some other time..

Hear are the color codes are taken from the HTML specifications, whose names correspond to the names given for the .KnownColor attributes. For example, to get one of these color schemes, you would write

Color c = Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.colorname)

where colorname is from the table below. The values are also supplied; so you could use the FromArgb method to create the color. The following two lines produce the same color:

Color c1 = Color.FromArgb(32,178,170);
Color c2 = Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.LightSeaGreen);

In the table, I have assigned the exact color values given. The rendering you actually see will depend upon whether or not your browser honors 24-bit color requests (some browsers will map colors to the “nearest Web palette color”), the adjustments to your monitor, and the corrections your video card applies.
