    Hey Gunther,

    I found this to be a pretty cool presentation. I have soem feedback for future posts which I hope will be helpful.

    You fisrt explained what the application was supposed to do at the 5 minute mark. I think a brief overview of the capabilities sought at the begining would be more likely to get people staying through the end.

    You might even consider showing the finished product at the begining just so people know what you are trying to accomplish. Secondly, you might jump direct to the code that matters such as the form and programing the jumplist. Third for those who are interested, you could do the house keeping parts like the using and variable setup. For me this would have made the presentation more impactful.

    Thanks for showing of the features of the API.

    Jeff,

    thanks for the ver good suggestions.... I will definetly incorporate them in my next screencasts Smiley. For this series I really wanted to keep it short, and show all the steps (which might be overkill indeed, as you correctly pointed out Smiley but I was hoping it would be useful for people not aware of the Vista Bridge and the Windows API Code Pack ....). Therefore, I didn't include a walkthrough of the application at the beginning.

    In addition, as a compromise I added a description of what I want to accomplish in teh descriptions part of the screencast series. This should help to set the context. Unfortunately, I was not able to add screenshots of the application to the description, otherwise I would have added them to show the results, but they are on my blog. They show the result of the application we are writing.

    Again thanks for hints on how I can improve the next screencasts, I will include them in my next screencasts  Smiley
