Difference between WinRT and Windows RT - Confused?

Though both these seems similar and confusing, but actually they aren't.

WinRT or Windows Runtime

As I posted earlier, it is a new set of API's built on Windows8 kernel to develop Metro style applications.

WinRT, not yet another abstraction over Win32!

Not just an abstraction over Win32 API.

Move grid rows up and down using Javascript

Since my initial programming days, I remember moving rows up and down in a grid required a tedious javascript to be written. And one has to be a rocket scientist to write that. In one of my latest project, I required to maintain the sequence of the item to be displayed in the grid.

How Sql Joins Works

To make this article, I have taken Table A and Table B as reference tables for explaining.

Path Combine: Leading Slash in relative path

Error : Unable to connect to the remote server

I got "Unable to connect to the remote server error" when I tried to call a webservice that is hosted on some remote machine outside my firewall. I am using a proxy server, and figured it that my application is not aware of the proxy server.

There are several situation, where we need to query against the row number.(we can't query against a serial number)
