Guidelines for Setting SQL Permissions on Mount Point Folders

MSDN Blogs - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 05:16
Introduction You can use Windows Disk Management to assign a mount-point folder path (rather than a drive letter) to a volume. In this manner you can access a new volume via a child folder path of a different volume’s drive letter. For example, say you have three 100GB volumes Vol1 , Vol2 , Vol3 . We can initially mount Vol1 using a drive letter, such as D. We can then mount the other two drives as child folders of the D: drive: D:  -- this is Vol1, max size=100GB D:\FolderForVol2  ...(read more)

Flashcards Pro for revision

MSDN Blogs - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 00:30

This is a guest post from Hélène Fyffe, an undergraduate starting her final year at Edinburgh Napier University, having spent a year on placement with Microsoft UK Education as part of her course.

Exam time

It's come to that time of year when students at school, college and universities are faced with the looming wrath of exams. Whether it’s studying for prelims, mid-terms or university module finals, exams are challenging for most students regardless of their age or academic stage, due to the fear of the unknown and to the unnerving prospect of not remembering the key facts.

Today I'm going to show how the Windows 8.1 app 'Flashcards Pro' can make the revision experience a lot less linear and help students to internalise the facts they wish to bash out in their exams.

With research showing that many learners learn more effectively with visual and interactive aids, Flashcards Pro provides a visually and audibly stimulating environment to get to grips with all the facts.

Browse

Students will be delighted to hear that millions of flash cards have already been designed for varying subject categories which means that they can simply browse them on quizlet.com or cram.com via the app. Students will be able to find sets of flashcards which they can then download for free onto Flashcards Pro to use to study. When browsing through the websites, I was impressed to see that even the most specific topics such as Brand Equity which I'm currently learning about have sets of flash cards created to download onto Flashcards Pro.

However, for students who can't find ready-made sets for their topic or who would prefer to create their own sets of flashcards, this can be carried out on the Flashcards Pro app.

Create

A great way of actually remembering content would be creating flashcards which would involve students analysing their notes, figuring out the essential themes and then transposing these to flashcards. Essentially what I'm expressing is that creating flash cards is a fun way of students summarising content, which can be a very effective method for understanding and recalling information. There are several nifty features that Flashcards Pro have architected to help students to make and remember their facts:

Visual aids

With exams comes remembering facts. Students are forced to remember all sorts of content from theories, processes, dates, facts, quotes, policies and references to complex equations. It's tough to remember facts when they're transcribed as screeds of lines of words on a page, so by having a clear image to accompany text, students can break it down into more edible chunks. It is recognised in education that when images are used to learn, students often find it easier to remember content as the facts are associated to a visual print which is more fun and engaging than screeds of words.

Audio aids

I was really impressed to learn that not only can learners insert images to their flashcards to help them remember, but they can even integrate audio playback in 19 different languages. This feature will be great for memorising grammar. To illustrate, learners can choose two different languages for the front and back of the card to learn and test themselves. So if they wanted to learn the verb conjugation for 'he or she admits/agrees' in Spanish, the front of the card would read and spell this out in Spanish, giving the learner time to anticipate what the translation is, and then once the card is flipped, would articulate how the translation 'conviene' sounds and appears in English. This would also be an effective tool for practicing how to pronounce and articulate foreign languages outside of the classroom!

Access

Finally, the app makes it really simple for students to group their flashcards into subject categories and sub-sets so that when they're on their tablets preparing to revise, they can seamlessly access the flashcards they need.

Download

Your learning groups can download Flashcards Pro for free using this link and use the app on their Windows Phones or on Windows 8.1 devices.

Make your HTML Application Location Aware using GeoLocation API and Bing Maps API

MSDN Blogs - Mon, 12/08/2014 - 22:35

This blog will show you how to make your HTML Application Location Aware using use the GeoLocation API with the Bing Maps AJAX Control.

Before we start you will need to obtain a Bing Maps Key.Please visit http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff428642.aspx to get a Bing Maps Key.

To begin, create an ASP.NET Empty Web Application as shown below.

Add a HTML Page to the project. You can right click on the ExampleGeoLocationBing project in Solution Explorer, click on Add and then click HTML Page as shown below.

Name the page default when requested to “Specify the Name for the Item” as shown below. Click on OK.

You should now see the default.html file created as shown below.

In the HTML document, add the onLoad attribute to the body element which will invoke the initializeGeoLocation function when the web page loads in the browser. In the body element, create a div element with an id “map”. The HTML code can be seen below.

 

Now add a script element in the head element of the HTML document for the Bing Maps AJAX Control.

<script src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=7.0"></script>

Add a folder called Scripts to the ExampleGeoLocationBing project.

 

Right click the Scripts folder and add a JavaScript file as shown below.

 

Name the file GeoLocation when requested to Specify the Name for the Item. Click on OK. You should now see the GeoLocation.js file in the Scripts folder as shown below.


Open the GeoLocation.js file by double clicking on it. Add the code below for the GeoLocation API and the Bing Map API as shown below.


 

In the above code the initializeGeoLocation function creates the geolocation object by utilizing the navigator.geolocation variable. The geolocation object calls the getCurrentPosition method which determines the current position of the user. To this method we pass in the getPosition function. The getPosition function is passed the position object which contains the coords property. The coords property gets the coordinates object which has the latitude and longitude properties. The latitude and longitude properties get the latitude and longitude in decimal degrees.

The getPosition function also initializes a new instance of the Map class. We pass in the container element (which is the div element with map as its id) and the Bing Map Key as arguments. We initialize a new instance of the Location class, which takes the latitude and longitude as arguments. We then initialize a new instance of the Pushpin class which adds a pushpin on the map. We add the Pushpin to the entities property of the map. This will add a pushpin to the current latitude and longitude coordinates of the user returned by the Location class.

Next, we set the map view using the specified coordinates as the center and the zoom level.

Now, return to the default.html page and add a script element for the GeoLocation.js file to the head element. The code for the HTML page should look as shown below.

 

Set the default.html page as the start page. To do so, right click on the default.html file and select “Set As Start Page”.

Now press F5 to launch the application in a browser. You should see results similar to the one shown below.

 

If you wish to add some styling to the HTML content, add a new folder called Styles to the project ExampleGeoLocationBing. Right Click on the ExampleGeoLocationBing project in Solution Explorer, click on Add and then click on New Folder as shown below. Name the folder Styles.


Add a new Style Sheet to the Styles folder called default.css. Right Click on the Styles folder, Click on Add and then select Style Sheet as shown below.


Name the Style Sheet default when requested to “Specify the Name for the Item”. You should now see the default.css Style Sheet in the Styles folder as shown below.

 

 

Open the default.css Style Sheet and add the following code to it to center the body of the HTML and set the position, width and height of the div element with id map.


 

Now press F5 to launch the application in a browser. You should see results similar to the one shown below.
