For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
Unable to see traces and Service in Jaeger UI on host server, used C# client (tracer) for Jaeger but able see traces in local environment using "jaeger-all-in-one --collector.zipkin.http-port=9411"
I have tried below code and Referred link as
public static class JaegerTracingServiceCollectionExtensions
public static IServiceCollection AddJaegerTracing(
this IServiceCollection services,
Action<jaegertracingoptions> setupAction = null)
if (setupAction != null) services.ConfigureJaegerTracing(setupAction);
var options = cli.GetService<ioptions<jaegertracingoptions>>().Value;
var senderConfig = new Jaeger.Configuration.SenderConfiguration(options.LoggerFactory)
var reporter = new RemoteReporter.Builder()
var sampler = new GuaranteedThroughputSampler(options.SamplingRate, options.LowerBound);
var tracer = new Tracer.Builder(options.ServiceName)
// Allows code that can't use dependency injection to have access to the tracer.
I am beginner in C# and I am building an application to create a workbook (Book1.xlsx) then copy a specific sheet from another workbook ( Book2.xlsx ).
I created Book1 but I am trying to copy Sheet1 from Book2 but I could not.
before copying [Sheet1 from Book2 ] I am dong a kind of check to collect names for all opened workbooks so I could not be able to get names of workbooks which opened by Visual Studio c# by the below piece of code but If will open the same workbooks by myself I found the below code can get the name of opened workbooks without problem.
I`m working on a graphics editor. I was trying to implement a gui in DirectX but I realised that`s not the right approach. I`m used to C# Forms so I was asking myself if I can stitch C# GUI (Forms) and C++ DirectX together. Any help is welcome.
WinForms is also not the right approach. Use WPF instead.

I need a usable license plate recognition program for my thesis. I would like to use it for entry access control. I wrote my program in C# language and the recogniser should be detect plate from images. I really appreciate any help or suggestion.
I want to detect europen plates, especially Hungarian and area.
Something you need to consider when you put strings in place using syntax like string s1 = "1,2"; or myClass.CallMethod("3,4");; these strings are interned in the string pool. In other words, the string is not garbage collected until the tests finish and the AppDomain is unloaded.
In terms of memory management they are the same. When you inline a string it still creates a string object which is stored in memory, the only difference is that it isn't assigned to a variable. Same with the int. In terms of performance, if you are in debug mode then you could argue the first version will perform worse due to the variable allocations, but we're talking single cpu cycles of difference. In release mode both of those code samples will effectively compile to the same code as the optimiser will inline the variables for you.
As for when they are deallocated, a test method is no different from any other method so the variables will be handled like normal.
the .NET String class is a reference type, correct?
Why then must I add the ref keyword to a string argument if I want its value to be updated in the called function?
No other reference type behaves this way, correct?
UPDATE: I just realized what's going on. Strings are immutable so when you pass a string with the ref keyword, it's the original reference to the string that is being updated with the new string. Without the ref keyword, the called function gets its own reference to the string, and if changes are made, then it's the function's reference that is updated, not the original reference.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
I look at 'string as a chimera: a reference type (heap allocated , a class, no fixed allocation size, can be 'null) with value type semantics (immutability). Adding to the inter-species flavor is that == will compare content, not references. Under the hood a Char.
 Eric Lippert's blogs illuminate the complexity of strings and memory allocation in .NET:
"It is simply false that the choice of whether to use the stack or the heap has anything fundamentally to do with the type of the thing being stored. The truth is: the choice of allocation mechanism has to do only with the known required lifetime of the storage."
i like to confuse my students by asking them: if a Point is a ValueType (immutable), why can you set its X/Y properties directly without creating a new copy. To (maybe) get across the idea that immutable and passed by value are not necessarily synonymous.

No, it's a value type. Even though strings are heap-based, .net does smoke-and-mirrors behind the scenes to ensure strings behave like value types. Probably to make the language easier to use as strings are very common. The downside is that it can lead to poor performance if you're not aware of the caveats.
No, it's an immutable reference type. There's not much in the way of smoke-and-mirrors involved; you can easily create your own immutable reference type to get the same behaviour.
If string was really a value type, you wouldn't sensibly be able to have a value type with a string member. The entire string would be stored "in-line" within that struct, and you'd end up with stack overflow exceptions everywhere.
It's probably better to say that in some circumstances it's easier to think of string as a value type, even though it isn't.
