But my app is WinForms. Is there any way to still use it? I have same issue with Media API.

@paul1956 You need to set <UseWPF>true</UseWPF> in your project file along with <UseWindowsForms>true</UseWindowsForms> if you want to access WPF assemblies.

Thanks no idea you could specify both.

I'm pretty sure it's a bit off topic here, but: We're having difficulties with our linux build agent. suddenly it cannot download tasks. timeouts occur after 20 minutes. Anyone experienceing this?

I just installed VS 16.9 Preview 4 and it can't find 5.0.100-alpha1-015536 SDK. when I look in C:\Program Files (x86)\dotnet\sdk it only has Rollback. Where can I download the SDK?
dotnet --list-sdks list none

The one I want to use is 5.0.200-preview.21079.7
When I run dotnet --list-sdks I get below
5.0.103 [C:\Program Files (x86)\dotnet\sdk]

Does anyone know of any good docs on writing custom LINQ implementations. It's really hard to search for because everyone's asking about IEnumerables when talking about LINQ. There's definitely some magic there that I've been prodding away at, and would really benefit from a proper understanding of. The only thing I've found which mentioned this was like "see an example of this in the AsEnumerable docs". The AsEnumerable() docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.linq.enumerable.asenumerable?view=net-5.0

If you want a good explanation of how Linq works, look up Jon Skeet's Edulinq series of blog posts.

I cannot believe that this use-case is unsupported: https://dotnetfiddle.net/elSDwz (System.Text.Json + Record Types)
Michał Zegan
@webczat
seems to be the reference handler limitation, not actual not supporting of records
and probably generally affects things with parameterized constructors.pretty sure non positional records would work.

What do I need to do to try .Net 6 preview I am running Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019 Preview
Version 16.10.0 Preview 1.0 and don't see any option for .Net 6.

You can create a net5.0 project, then having installed net6.0 preview, update the project file to "net6.0-windows"

I'm waiting for preview3 to drop before playing around with it (:
p3 has a new API that I've been dying to use

When I try .Net6 it does not like below, ApplyHighDpiModeEventArgs and ApplyHighDpiMode are not found

Private Sub MyApplication_ApplyHighDpiMode(sender As Object, e As My.ApplyHighDpiModeEventArgs) Handles Me.ApplyHighDpiMode
e.HighDpiMode = HighDpiMode.PerMonitorV2
End Sub

I don't see anything about WinForms in the what's new or any breaking changes

i use this regex AA$$(.+?)$$ to get the text inside the parenthesis after AA in AA(text)-AB(text2)-
however if I have this AA()-AB(text2) then the regex matches the whole string and i get )-AB(text2 extracted out. how can i get an empty result if there is no text in the parenthesis after AA?

@masonwheeler
Some people, when faced with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions!" Now they have two problems.
It's an old joke, but it's a joke that exists for a reason.
Joseph Musser
@jnm2
I used regex today, feels like it ended with zero problems.
Igor Velikorossov
@RussKie
You need to use non-greedy search
Joseph Musser
@jnm2
If possible, use [^)] rather than .. Regex is not good at handling distinctions in level of nesting though IIRC.
So e.g. AA$$[^)]*$$
@RussKie It looks like they are already using non-greedy search because of the .+?
@alealpha2000 Is maybe part of the problem if you want to match a zero length that you are using + instead of *?
alealpha2000
@alealpha2000

So e.g. AA$$[^)]*$$

that seems to work. thanks!

@stephentoub : is new guid really not cryptographically secure in .net core?
Guid is not cryptographically secure afaict
It may be on some platforms, but i don't believe there is any guarantee of that
masonwheeler
@masonwheeler
Guid's intent is right there in its name: it's meant to be globally unique, not cryptographically anything.

@isobel-cullen - If they're not, you have a pretty dangerous race condition.

ValueTask is mutable, more or less, but callers aren't supposed to muck with it (and are supposed to ignore it after successfully awaiting it, so don't have to deal with other modifications anyways).

Isobel Cullen
@isobel-cullen
yes that was my thoughts, but just wanted to confirm before I accidentally introduced weird race conditions into the code
Isobel Cullen
@isobel-cullen
I wasn't planning on using it, small number of tasks in Blazor, just need to share the results for simultaneous requests to the same resource

Is there a chart component for .Net Core for Winforms? I need to dray a line graph I see one for framework.

@RussKie thanks
Will the framework controls not be ported?
Igor Velikorossov
@RussKie
Can you rephrase the quesiton?
Paul M Cohen
@paul1956
Will the framework data visualization controls be included in .net 6?
