DynamicInvoke for CF 2.0


March 22nd, 2009 at 22:14 Ryan Rogers This solution only works for .Net CF prior to 3.5 as the Target and Method properites did not exist before that. Any ideas how to “fake” DynamicInvoke for CF 2.0? I am using extension methods through the ExtensionAttribute trick.Delegatedynamicinvoke-for-net-compact-framework Hello Ryan, The problem is that the .NET compact framework 2.0 is lacking some really important functionality. What we can get by using ugly reflection code is the target object where...

Dynamically create delegates


Recently I was facing a problem regarding delegates. I needed to dynamically create a delegate which “points to” a dynamically reflected method which is not static on a given type. The problem was, that at the time of the “inspection” of the type I had no instance of that type available. Normally delegates “pointing to” instances are said to be closed on a given  instance therefore you need to have a concrete instance of the type available which the delegate can be bound to. An example of a...

Part II: Mimic SynchronizationContext behaviour on .NET CF


Not long ago I posted the first part of this article under: Part I: Mimic SynchronizationContext behaviour on .NET CF The article was intended to give the reader a better feeling of the purpose of the SynchronizationContext and the importance of the class on behalf of synchronization between different apartment threads. Unfortunately the SynchronizationContext is not available on the .NET compact framework which is especially annoying when you want to port existing code which uses the...

Part I: Mimic SynchronizationContext behaviour on .NET CF


Before I got into the details of the problem I want to briefly describe what the SynchronizationContext class really does and what it’s main purpose really is in the first part of the article. From that perspective I’m going to show how the basic functionality of the SynchronizationContext class can be implemented for the .NET compact framework in the second part of the article..

Delegate.DynamicInvoke for .NET Compact Framework


As you might already know I’m a certified windows mobile application developer. My speciality is hybrid application development for applications which target both the full .NET framework platform and also the mobile platform. Of course nobody wants to write the same code for each platform again so you have to come up with some tricks and solutions to overcome some limitations on the compact framework.
