How to compile .NET Core Console Application as .exe File?

When you compile .NET Core Console Application it will generate DLL file instead of exe file for the build project.

NET Core 3.0+ projects will now include an executable file for the platform you build on by default. This is just an executable and your main logic is still inside a .dll file.

But .NET Core 3.0 also introduced single-file deployments so deploying with

dotnet publish -r win-x64 -p:PublishSingleFile=True --self-contained false

will create a single .exe file containing all your dependencies. You can change --self-contained to true to also include the .NET Core Runtime as well so .NET Core does not need to be installed globally on the target machine.

You can also do this from Visual Studio Publish

.NET Core Publish

How to Add space and increase width of Morris.Js Bar?

There are two properties of Morris.Js bar we can use to achieve this
1) barGap
2) barSizeRatio

barGap is an integer that sets the space between bars in a single bar group.
Default is 3.
Increase this value to space them further, decrease it to bring them closer.

barSizeRatio is the proportion of the width of the entire graph given to bars. Defaults to 0.75.
Increase the number closer to 1 to make the bars wider, if its =1 the bars will take up the entire graph, if its > 1 bars will overlap.

Here is an example of code

element: ‘bar-chart’,
data: [
{ y: ‘Apr’, a: 75, b: 60, c: 5, d: 50 },
{ y: ‘May’, a: 180, b: 220, c: 140, d: 160 },
{ y: ‘June’, a: 420, b: 340, c: 350, d: 270 }
xkey: ‘y’,
ykeys: [‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, ‘d’],
labels: [‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’],
barColors: [‘#0B62A4′,’#f75b68′,’#4DA74D’,’#646464′],
