visual studio code – Does the “editorWhitespace.foreground” workbench.colorCustomizations setting in VSCode actually work? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/16

[WayBack] visual studio code – Does the “editorWhitespace.foreground” workbench.colorCustomizations setting in VSCode actually work? – Stack Overflow

Yes, it does. But after reading [WayBack] vscode-docs/theme-color-reference.md at master · Microsoft/vscode-docs · GitHub: Editor Colors or [WayBack] Visual Studio Code Theme Color Reference you might want to put it in the config straight like this:

see the editor white spaces, enable Toggle Render Whitespace.

  • editorWhitespace.foreground: Color of whitespace characters in the editor.

However, you need to embed it like this:

"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    "editorWhitespace.foreground": "#333",
    "editorIndentGuide.background": "#333"
  }

The embedding makes it work.

Mad With PowerShell: FileInfo and DirectoryInfo objects are not populated upon creation in PowerShell

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/16

[WayBack] Mad With PowerShell: FileInfo and DirectoryInfo objects are not populated upon creation in PowerShell.

TL;DR:

  • Apart from the FullName property, the other poprerties of FileInfo and DirectoryInfo are populated later than their instance creation
  • A call to their Refresh method populates or re-populates them
  • That method is implicitly called when you request other properties than FullName

Example: see the [Archive.is]fileinfo.cs: Length property
