Threading in C# – Free E-book

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/18

Still a great book. I love the chapter Threading in C# – Free E-book which you also can get as a PDF download.

It’s a chapter from C# 56/5/… in a Nutshell by Joseph Albahari. Great book!

c# – TFS Code Reviews – Show updated files in response to comments – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/10

Nice steps here: c# – TFS Code Reviews – Show updated files in response to comments – Stack Overflow.

What’s missing here is that you now loose your history within the shelve-set.

That makes it harder for the reviewer to view the changes being re-reviewed.

Visual Studio: Zoom Out when ReSharper has captured Ctrl+Shift+,

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/30

ReSharper has a whole set of nice keyboard shortcuts, which includes Ctrl + Shift + , for View Recent Edits.

This overwrites the Zoom Out half of the default Visual Studio zoom keyboard shortcuts (thanks Carlos Muñoz):

Ctrl + Shift + . to zoom in and Ctrl + Shift + , to zoom out.

They don’t keep an alternative for Zoom Out, and unlike most tools I know that allow for zooming, there is no keyboard accessible menu entry for Zoom Out in Visual Studio.

So you have to use your mouse to go in the lower left of your editor window in order to Zoom Out (thanks ashteele for putting that in an SO question):

Zoom percentage in the lower left of your Visual Studio editor Window

Or you can reconfigure the old shortcut (thanks Aaron Ransley):

through Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard and map “View.ZoomIn” and “View.ZoomOut

As of Visual Studio 2012, the option “Find Shelveset” is hard to find – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/28

Shelving work into a shelveset is easy in Visual Studio. Until Visual Studio 2010 it was easy to find the shelveset.

As of Visual Studio 2012 this is much more difficult. To get the shelveset back in Visual Studio 2012 and up:

  1. Go to the “Team Explorer” pane
  2. Click the “Home” icon
  3. Choose “Pending Changes”
  4. Click the topmost “Actions” item
  5. In the pop-up menu, click “Find Shelvesets”
  6. Type a search phrase

Batch file: Finds the location of xsd.exe by running the vsvars32.bat of the youngest installed Visual Studio

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/12

Boy, Microsoft made it hard to find the location of xsd.exe!

It is actually located like here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.1A\bin\NETFX 4.5.1 Tools\xsd.exe

But that is nowhere on the default path, nor in the registry.

What happens during installation of Visual Studio and/or the Microsoft SDK, is that the vsvars32.bat file of Visual Studio is updated so it can add the location of many tools (including xsd.exe) to the PATH.

So the trick is to find the youngest Visual Studio first, then run the according vsvars32.bat, and then xsd.exe is on the path.
