Windows Runtime (WinRT)

September 16th, 2011 No comments

Windows Runtime, or shortly WinRT, is a new runtime (siting on top of the Windows kernel) that allows developers to write Metro style applications for Windows 8, using a variety of languages including C/C++, C#, VB.NET or JavaScript/HTML5.

WinRT is a native layer (written in C++ and being COM-based) that is intended as a replacement, or alternative, to Win32, and enables development of “immersive” applications, using the Metro style. Its API is object oriented and can be consumed both from native or managed languages, as well as JavaScript. At the same time the old Win32 applications will continue to run just as before and you can still (and most certainly will) develop Win32 applications.

Microsoft has created a new language called C++ Component Extension, or simply C++/CX. While the syntax is very similar to C++/CLI, the language is not managed, it’s still native. WinRT components built in C++/CX do not compile to managed code, but to 100% native code. A good news for C++ developers is that they can use XAML now to build the UI for immersive applications. However, this is not available for classical, Win32 applications.

Using .NET Classes/Modules from native C++

September 17th, 2009 No comments

The goal of this article is to describe a more or less generic way to access .NET managed object from a native C++ application.

Introduction

The goal of this article is to describe a more or less generic way to access .NET managed object from a native C++ application. I will present a dynamic link library (dll) which can be used, for example, to augment legacy C++ applications with the power of managed code. The library is written in C++/CLI which is the only .NET language which can be used to accomplish such a task.
All code was written with Visual C++ 2008, it’s also possible to do this with previous versions of the Microsoft C++ compilers, but Microsoft has done a lot of changes to C++/CLI for VS 2008, so it’s now much easier to use than in older version.
The “more” generic in the first sentence means that the library can be used to call any function (with an unlimited amount of parameters) of any managed class. The “less” means that the parameter types are limited to the native C++ types and a few user defined types (string, date/time, …). It’s easy to provide support for your own types, but therefore the code for the dll has to be extended by yourself.

ILNumerics.Net

January 6th, 2009 No comments

ILNumerics.Net is a class library for .NET software developers. It greatly simplifies the implementation of all kinds of numerical algorithms. Generic, n-dimensional arrays, complex numbers, linear algebra, sorting, cells- and logical arrays as well as 2D and 3D plotting controls help developing perfomant algorithms on every platform supporting .NET.
