Javascript Debugging In Visual Web Developer "Orcas"

Up until now, we've never had a great set of JavaScript debugging tools, but "Orcas", the next version of Visual Studio will have some great new JavaScript debugging tools. While Visual Web Developer "Orcas" hasn't shipped yet, there is a CTP available that you can download and install. The VWD team (and my old team) has posted on their blog a couple of blog posts about how to do JS debugging in VWD Orcas. It's worth checking out.

Web Client Software Factory Fix for Add View with Presenter Recipe

The team was finally able to find a fix for this sporadic issue: occasionally the Add View with Presenter recipe would throw a ValueProviderException. This was apparently due to having two versions of the same DLLs loaded in memory at the same time. The Recipes were built with a signed version of the DLL, but the projects were loaded with an unsigned, source version of the DLL. There is a full explanation of the issue , and also a fix on our known issues page . Read More...

New "Orcas" Language Feature: Extension Methods

Last week I started the first in a series of blog posts I'll be making that cover some of the new VB and C# language features that are coming as part of the Visual Studio and .NET Framework "Orcas" release later this year. My last blog post covered the new Automatic Properties, Object Initializer and Collection Initializer features . If you haven't read my previous post yet, please read it here . Today's blog post covers a much more significant new feature that is available with both VB and C#: Extension Methods . What are Extension Methods? Extension methods allow developers to add new methods to the public contract of an existing CLR type, without having to sub-class it or recompile the original type. Extension Methods help blend the flexibility...

A new job for me, better products for you

And hopefully some more time to blog :) This week we re-organized our team so that we could better serve the needs of our internal and external partners and customers. I won't bore you with the details but it has a pretty major impact on what I do and the kinds of information I want; so I figured this was a great opportunity to share. My new job is focused on Developer Division (which includes designers) Platform Strategy. My new team is 100% focused on making sure we build the best possible products for the market place. We get to understand the trends, the big picture, the little picture, customer needs, partner needs, and partner deeply with the engineering teams run by Scott Guthrie (NDP) and Eric Zocher (Designer) to help ensure that the...

IE6 VPC (An Update)

Just a quick update to let you know the work for the IE6 VPC has been mostly completed. We're down to the last few steps, and I hope to have it out by the end of the week. Before we release it, I'll be testing it on the PC, and I also want to test it on VPC for the Mac, as I heard a few people say it wouldn't work there. It'll be pretty much the same as last time, though I had to create a new image, I did manage to get it a hair smaller. It'll have about a 4 month time bomb on it again, and the same EULA. Feel free to make any other requests and I'll see what I can do, but no promises! Read More...

Installing Ubuntu 6.10 in a Virtual PC

I’ve never benn a big fan of virtualization, Id rather just have twice as much hardware But since I’ll be spending most of the time between now and July on the road, I thought I’d revisit VirtualPC again, especially now that the 2007 version is out and there is a free desktop version. Since I’m working on some interop demos, I started with trying to install Ubuntu. WHile LInux installer hardware detection generally sucks, for native installations I’ve found Ubuntu’s HD logic to be very good. My first try installing Ubuntu 6.10 on VPC 2007 wasn’t so good. There ius a problem that has to do with the boot splash and 16 pixel vs 24 pixel I found this workaround in a Ubuntu blog and it works like a charm: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/freitasm/2184 Step...

After a weekend with Vista

Vista was driving me nuts and I posted some of my frustrations at the end of last week. The response was interesting. There were a couple ignorant slashdotters who chimed in with the used sore looser crap. Mostly though, I got reminded how smart my blog readers. There were answers or explanations to all my frustrations. My problem with the AJAX Control Toolkit download was simple. I just need to unblock the downloaded file before decompression or installation. Not too bad. The problem with access my pictures folders was an interesting. He link I was clicking on was a symbolic link to help with backward compatibility so that when a program expects the link which allays existed on Windows XP, things will work. Those links are hidden, but as a...
