  • 1st Place for EventFilter!

    The winners of the programming contest over at the German website have been announced – my entry EventFilter was chosen by a jury from almost 100 entries to be the winner.

    EventFilter is a generic helper class for dealing with events that may be raised multiple times in rapid succession, when only the last event of a “burst” is of interest.

    You find the English version in this blog post I published recently.

  • GhostDoc 2.1.3 Released

    GhostDoc is a free add-in for Visual Studio that automatically generates XML
    documentation comments for C#. Either by using existing documentation inherited
    from base classes or implemented interfaces, or by deducing comments from
    name and type of e.g. methods, properties or parameters.

    20080106_GhostDocQuick Facts

    • Version 2.1.3 is a minor bugfix release, fixing problem with documentation for specific operators and import/export of partial configurations.
    • Download on the GhostDoc Website
    • Users of earlier versions: Please read the ReadMe on upgrading!

    What’s New in GhostDoc 2.1.3:

    • Fixed: No documentation was generated for the operators "&", "<" and ">".
    • Fixed: Rules for classes, events, interfaces and structs were not shown in the export dialog, making it impossible to exclude them from an export.
    • Changed: Tags for empty rule collections in config files are now removed (cosmetic change, does not break compatibility of the file format).
    • Added: Some "of the" triggers and prefixes, "no the" words and acronyms.

    Note that VB.Net support is turned off by default and has to be turned on in the configuration dialog.
