  • Data Templates in XAML

    @rogreen: I can't remember what it was right now. If I get time I'll watch it again.

    It's just one of those unfortunate things that happen, really.

  • Data Templates in XAML

    @rogreen:yeah that's it.

    It doesn't entirely ruin the video but sometimes Billy was answering a question you asked, and I couldn't hear the question so the answer lacked context, that kind of thing. It's still worth persevering watching the whole video, though.

    I figured it probably wasn't fixable other than re-recording the whole thing.

  • Data Templates in XAML

    It's a shame the audio issues spoiled the video somewhat because I find this stuff interesting.

  • Defrag Tools #94 - Sysinternals Strings, FindStr, !pde.ssz

    @olexiy:Also, the "Customize notification icons" screen Andrew was on has a "Turn system icons on or off" link at the bottom which also takes you to the same place.

  • Inside .NET Native

    @apardoe:Yeah I think the desktop is going to be around for a while. I missed that desktop wasn't currently supported, but I'm glad you're thinking about it.

    I gotta say, "the convenience of C# with the performance of C++" is one heck of a selling technique! :) 

  • Inside .NET Native

    So would this enable you to run .NET code without the .NET framework?

    I'm mainly thinking about C# code being used by installers, where a dependency on the .NET framework is less than desirable.

  • SideWaffle

    This is pretty cool. I didn't realise it was more than just web templates, or that the template builder existed, so I'd ignored it all until now.

    I can see us using templates to capture certain patterns, but as you guys mentioned the zipping and unzipping and tweaking and re-zipping every time you want to update a template has meant it's not really worth it. This 

    The UI's not too bad, you just have to remember to do a couple of things to get things working. I guess that could be made a little more streamlined and automated.

  • Defrag Tools: #80 - App-V

    FYI, Scintilla is the editor component that Notepad++ uses. It's quite a popular open source editor control.


  • Auto History Extension

    Glad I could help :)

    I'll continue to play with the extension and will post back if I feel I have something more you might find useful.


  • Auto History Extension

    Actually, Mark, I realised I didn't 100% answer your question. The above comment describes how I use Visual Studio's ability to dock tool windows (which answers part of your question - whether I'd want it always visible) but the other part (whether a side-docked approach works) wasn't answered.

    To answer that, yes I think a side-docked arrangement does work, but you have to be very careful about using horizontal space because you're effectively in a thin vertical strip down the side, and currently I think it uses more horizontal space than is strictly necessary (meaning that I have to allow that strip to be wider than I'd like).

    I understand that this is still WIP, and the UI isn't final :), but I thought it was worth giving the feedback anyway.
