Programming with FASM – Calendar Control.

I have not done a tutorial about the assembler programming language for a while, so today I had a good reason to write this tutorial.
The tutorial focuses on using Calendar Control (MSAA UI Element Reference).

The source code of the window made in fasm is used into this tutorial.
I added the window class name for a month calendar which is defined as SysMonthCal32.
The file if.inc is used for message selection.
When we close the program, a closing dialog is displayed.
To run the Go to today click is displayed but I did not implement execution code.
The IDD_DLG parameter is random and I put the year of my birth to be more fun.
The program contains comments to understand the source code.
For execution, you need to add it to the FASM editor and run it with the F9 key.
You also have the executable version in the Downloads section of the main page menu.

Network and Windows – firefox browser and socks.

This tutorial will explain to you how it works the SOCKS and Firefox browser.
Open one firefox tab with about:config to see the network.proxy.socks_remote_dns value.
If you wan to route your DNS requests through the SOCKS, you’ll need to turn it on.
But because you don’t need to use that then you need to keep to false.
This two result of values will be:

This value controls whether DNS lookups for SOCKS v5 clients happen on the client or on the proxy server.
You can read more about the SOCKS here.
NOTE: Because this use proxy term then you need to know also this about proxy:
– the SOCKS server is a general purpose proxy server that establishes a TCP connection to another server on behalf of a client;
– HTTP proxy is similar, and may be used for the same purpose when clients are behind a firewall and are prevented from making outgoing TCP connections to servers outside the firewall;

– send one message to release the current DHCP configuration and discard the IP address configuration for either all adapters:

– resets the contents of the DNS client resolver cache, with:

– show us the the contents of the DNS client resolver cache (example: clients.l.Google.com is Google in Mountain View, California, United States.)

NOTES:

Windows 10 – replace cmd with powershell.

1. Why PowerShell?
– since Windows 7 we have a new command-line environment in Windows named PowerShell;
– is a much more powerful command-line shell;
– the scripting language is more good than the Command Prompt;
– is more complicated than the traditional Command Prompt;
– uses different commands, known as cmdlets in PowerShell;
– allows you to create your own commands and scripts using the C# programming language;
2. How to replace cmd with powershell.
Right click with the mouse on taskbar from bottom of your Windows screen.
Then select the tab named Navigation and select option with: “Replace the …”. Press then Ok button.
Right click with the mouse on the Start icon and will see the replacement of Command Prompt.
