The Week or Two That Was
DAVID JONES V1.1
Some of the issues I have been looking at over the last week or so.
It was simple enough to get access to a Microsoft SQL Server from a Web Service when all were running on the same machine. You use Windows Authentication. But when the services are both running locally, with the user running a Windows 10 Universal app that calls the web service, they won’t be logged in an so the web service needs credential for the SQL service.
I’m creating a Windows 10 Universal Phone App that talks to a Web Service to post an entity (object) in Microsoft SQL Server running on the same machine as the Web Service. Initially did all including the app on my laptop using localhost as the network target. Solved the SQL Server credentials .. OK. But when I switch to using the laptop’s system name or its IP address (all still running on same machine) got Network Access Required error.
In my previous blog Windows 10 (including IoT) USB HID device identification was covered in detail. This included an app that takes the relevant IDs for an HID device and checks whether it is present on the system. Two of the IDs could be looked up via a menu as they come an HID Usage table. The menu data was loaded from a JSON (text) file and translated using Linq to a list that is the Xaml data source binding for the menu. This blog demonstrates the mechanism for loading JSON data from a text file into an Xaml ComboBox.
Human Interface Devices (HID) are supported in the “headful/headed” (viz. headless) version of Windows 10 IoT. Anything that takes users input for an app is an HID device, and can include devices such as screens that provide feedback to the user. Traditional HID devices are the mouse and keyboard, whereas gaming devices such as joystick, XBox controller and steering wheel are also HID devices. A barcode scanner or credit scanner are also be HID devices, A system with just a few push buttons to control it has those pushbuttons as a trivial HID. Technically the HID protocol was developed as a protocol for the USB-HID class such that devices that conform to that class do not need a specific driver.
