  • The new .NET Reference Source experience

    In the last weeks Microsoft has made a series of announcements that will benefit a lot to .NET developers. The first one is the new .NET Reference Source experience . While the http://referencesource.microsoft.com/ site has existed for a while, now it provides new tools to navigate the code like you are used to in Visual Studio (Go To Definition, Find References, etc.). This means that for some scenarios (navigating the code of the .NET Framework assemblies) you don't need tools such as Reflector

  • Debugging .NET Framework now working

    Apart from the new .NET Reference Source experience , another thing that Microsoft has improved (well, has made actually work) is the Debugging .NET Framework feature of Visual Studio, which until recently was basically broken . Now, that feature doesn't break with changes in the .NET Framework binaries due to security patches or hotfixes. Although Microsoft's post mentions that it works with Microsoft .NET 4.5.1, it actually works with Microsoft .NET 4.0 and Microsoft .NET 4.5, at least

  • Roslyn (.NET compilers as services) now open source

    The greatest announcement for developers of Visual Studio extensions in the past days has been about Roslyn , the .NET compiler platform that will allow you to use the compilers as services, and that will be open source . Even in closed form Roslyn would be great, because the current automation code model (EnvDTE.Project.CodeModel, EnvDTE.ProjectItem.FileCodeModel), apart from being entirely missing for some .NET languages such as F# : It is very limited, either to get information or to emit code

  • Syncfusion 28 free e-books

    Syncfusion (a well known company that provides enterprise-class software components and tools for the Microsoft .NET platform) has published on its Technology Resource Portal a collection of 28 free e-books about several technologies, languages and frameworks. All of them include the "Succinctly" term in the title, which called my attention because it means that they are larger that an article or blog post, but smaller than the typical book of 400-500 pages. Interestingly enough, one of

  • MZ-Tools Articles Series: HOWTO: Get the icons of files in the Solution Explorer

    After explaining how to navigate the files of the Solution Explorer using the IVsHierarchy interface (which can be done from a package or from an add-in), as I stated I am going to show how to get the icons of the Solution Explorer items (solution, projects, files, folders, etc.): HOWTO: Get the icons of files in the Solution Explorer http://www.mztools.com/articles/2014/MZ2014010.aspx I have done it with a package rather than with an add-in, but once you understand the technique you can adapt it

  • Calling Marshall.ReleaseComObject

    If you ever develop COM add-ins for the VBA editor (or for some Office application), you may find that sometimes you need to call Marshall.ReleaseComObject ( when you get strange errors that disappear when calling Marshall.ReleaseComObject ) and most of the time (by default) you don't have to (when you get an InvalidComObjectException). The issue is a bit tricky because of a number of factors, such as: - The RCWs are reused and cached per-AppDomain - An AppDomain can contain more than one .NET

  • The strange case of VS 2010 Macros stop working after February 2014 Windows Update

    I have noticed today that VS 2010 macros stopped working. Fortunately the cause is known (a security patch of Windows Update) and there is a workaround. See: Visual Studio 2010 Macros Stop Working after February 2014 Windows Update http://visualstudioextensions.vlasovstudio.com/2014/02/13/visual-studio-2010-macros-stop-working-after-february-2014-windows-update/ and http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/590abd1d-2faa-4a35-9b9c-fe404406d6cd/what-the-visual-studio-2010-macros-not-working

  • MZ-Tools Articles Series: HOWTO: Create a project item from a Visual Studio add-in

    A question in the MSDN VSX forum has reminded me that I had pending to write this article about how to add new project items (files) to a project or folder, either from a template or existing (and in turn copied or linked): HOWTO: Create a project item from a Visual Studio add-in http://www.mztools.com/articles/2014/MZ2014009.aspx This article completes a series about using the automation model (EnvDTE) to create solutions, projects, projects inside folders, folders, project items and issues and

  • The strange case of VBA editor prompting to repair Visual Studio (again)

    On one of my computers I have started to suffer again the strange case of a prompt to repair Visual Studio 2010 when launching the VBA editor of any Office application. I already posted about this back in 2012 when I learned that a cause for that issue was having an external hard drive connected to the computer while you installed Visual Studio. When the drive was disconnected, the issue appeared. Since I did use an external hard drive as source for the setups of Visual Studio, that was certainly

  • MZ-Tools Articles Series: BUG: DTE.ActiveWindow.ProjectItem.Document null for files in Solution Items folder.

    This is a small bug in the automation model (EnvDTE) that I discovered yesterday when a customer of my MZ-Tools add-in reported a NullReferenceException when sorting code elements in a file outside a project: BUG: DTE.ActiveWindow.ProjectItem.Document null for files in Solution Items folder. http://www.mztools.com/articles/2014/MZ2014008.aspx And here it is the bug report that I have opened at Microsoft Connect: DTE.ActiveWindow.ProjectItem.Document null for files in Solution Items folder https:
