Hello, i have a solution with a windows forms app and some additional class library projects..

i want to know if there is anyway to make a method on one of the class library to execute the moment the main application starts without having to manually make the call in the main application..

(so that it wont matter where the class library is referenced it will always execute a method when the main app starts)

is it possible ?

>>is it possible ?

As you describe it I don't think so.  The method would need to be called explicitly somewhere, I haven't heard of an 'autostart' method specifier.

Or - this might not be suitable: Just use the class via a singleton wrapper class, you can then call this method the very first time the 'real' class is to be used because it is going via this singleton class you have coded.

Why don't you just call each of the methods in the classes from your main class at application start?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

since some of those classes will be in different applications, i would like that they would get called automaticly, instead of having to manually call them at every application..

but i guess its not possible =/

i ll leave this open for now..maybe someone else has an answer

this type of question often means that what you really need is some refactoring to use a Dependency Injection framework.  see http://visualstudiomagazine.com/Articles/2010/08/01/Inversion-of-Control-Patterns-for-the-Microsoft-NET-Framework.aspx for a good primer on DI

I don't think it's possible. Even static members are initialized just before access..
No way to execute code from class libraries at application start before accessing them..
