Localization of Dates in C#

To store current date as UTC in sql server, sql GETUTCDATE() function can be used( in your storedproc).
Note that GETUTCDATE() returns the current datetime in UTC.
In your codebehind you can use the C# ToLocalTime function method to restore a local date and time value that was converted to UTC
example:
DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2011, 4, 13, 2, 30, 0, DateTimeKind.Local);
DateTime utcDate1 = date1.ToUniversalTime();
DateTime date2 = utcDate1.ToLocalTime();

WPF - Checking Cap Lock Status in WPF

Checking Cap Lock status will be useful in Logon page where we can provide warning to user <Caps Lock is on. Having Caps Lock on may cause you to enter password incorrectly.>

Following sample uses the Control class that is a standard class within the System.Windows.Forms namespace. The DLL containing this namespace is automatically included in Windows Forms applications. The class includes a method named IsKeyLocked, which allows you to determine whether keys such as Caps Lock are switched on or off. To check the status of the Caps Lock key, you can use the method in the following manner:

Example:
privatevoid KeyDownEventHanlder(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
if (Console.CapsLock == true)
{
lblError.Foreground = Brushes.Red;
lblError.Content = "Caps Lock is on.";// Having Caps Lock on may cause you to enter password incorrectly.";

}

else

{
if (lblError.Foreground == Brushes.Red)lblError.Foreground = Brushes.Transparent;
}

}
