Troubleshooting pkgdef Files - The Visual Studio Blog For those using the Visual Studio 2010 SDK to create extensions for Visual Studio, you should find the creation and use of .pkgdef files to be mostly automatic (see What's a PkgDef and Why? ). However, like anything involving computers and software, there are occasions that require manual intervention because they aren’t covered by the automatic settings or things can go wrong. This article illustrates some possible issues with .pkgdef files and provides techniques for discovering what’s wrong and correcting them.

Decorate Your Code with Astonishing Attributes hen I first saw attributes in Visual Studio .NET, I thought they were some sort of oddity Microsoft had dragged in from Java, C++, or perhaps the Delta Quadrant. They clearly aren't Visual Basic code. To someone who uses angle brackets only for comparing two numbers, this Property statement, <XmlIgnore(True)> Public Property Salary() As Decimal , looks like it's been infected by the Borg! In fact, attributes don't look like code because they aren't code. They're really code "decorations" that supply extra information related to the code to anyone or any process that cares.

In most applications certain user interface areas are shared among various modules. Examples are all kinds of menus, tool bars, status bars, Outlook style sidebars and others. What is common for all of them is that they serve as containers for collections items (menu items, toolbar buttons, etc.) that user can activate to trigger some actions in the application.

Enterprise Library : Configuration Part 1.1.3 - ConfigurationContext - Being Scott Densmore Last week I did a podcast (why do we call it that when we use the WMA format?) with Ron Jacobs on the ConfigurationContext. I know that the talk was abstract and probably a little hard to follow and I hope to clear that up today with another explanation and samples. I want to start off by saying that we intentionally did not document this “feature” because: a) we ran out of time , b) we knew it was a hard concept to cover, and c) I didn’t think people would be that interested (see what you get when you assume things).

Modifying the Guidance Package With the Windows Installer of the Smart Client Software Factory, you can choose to install the source code for the guidance package, install the guidance package and register it, or you can choose to both install the source code and register the guidance package. When you choose to register the guidance package, the installer copies the guidance package contents and assemblies to your computer. When you install the source code, you can compile the guidance package to create the assemblies. The guidance package you can register with Windows Installer and the guidance package you can install as source code are identical with the exception of their identifiers. This means you can customize the guidance package source code, register it, and use it side by side with the guidance package that is registered by Windows Installer. You can modify the existing guidance package, or create new guidance packages, to customize the Smart Client Software Factory.
