Draft – .NET Glossary Diagram – Scott Hanselman

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/10

By now this should be out of [WayBackDraft – .NET Glossary Diagram – Scott Hanselman: a list of common terms to describe various parts of the .NET ecosystem.

He has a nice list of sentences where each term is used.

I’ll try to use them myself as well, so I gave it a start at paulcbetts/refit: The automatic type-safe REST library for Xamarin and .NET.

from a WSDL import: empty “Reference.cs” – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/10

A search for empty “Reference.cs” – Google Search seems to indicate this happens with referenced types that – despite turning off that option – from the Visual Studio 2017 IDE sometimes results in an empty Reference.cs.

My solution: import in an empty project, then move the reference to the existing project and add it.

Creating a full off-line installation directory for Visual Studio 2017 Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/01

Steps:

  1. mkdir C:\Installs\VS2017Community\VS2017CommunityLayout
  2. pushd C:\Installs\VS2017Community
  3. bitsadmin.exe /transfer "VS2017CommunityBootstrap" https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vs_community.exe C:\Installs\VS2017Community\vs_community.exe
  4. vs_community.exe --lang en-US --layout C:\Installs\VS2017Community\VS2017CommunityLayout
  5. VS2017CommunityLayout\vs_community.exe

Step 3 needs a full path to the destination file.

Step 4 can take a relative path.

Step 4 takes considerable time (for 15.2 about 90 minutes on a 100 Mibit/s fiber connection with an ~8 millisecond ping time to download.visualstudio.microsoft.com; for 15.8 with 80 Mibit/s and a ~4 millisecond ping about 120 minutes) resulting in ~40 gigabyte download.

After download, run the vs_setup.exe in theVS2017CommunityLayout directory.

Note that upgrading to a newer version of Visual Studio 2017 will require downloads! See [WayBack] Offline Install Modify always goes to the WEB – Developer Community.

Note that after installation, Visual Studio 2017 needs considerable disk space as found via visual studio 2017 disk size – Google Search:

[WayBack] Visual Studio 2017 System Requirements | Microsoft Docs:

Find the minimum system requirements, supported hardware, and languages for the Visual Studio 2017 product family.

Hardware
  • 1.8 GHz or faster processor. Dual-core or better recommended
  • 2 GB of RAM; 4 GB of RAM recommended (2.5 GB minimum if running on a virtual machine)
  • Hard disk space: up to 130 GB of available space, depending on features installed; typical installations require 20-50 GB of free space.
  • Hard disk speed: to improve performance, install Windows and Visual Studio on a solid state drive (SSD).
  • Video card that supports a minimum display resolution of 720p (1280 by 720); Visual Studio will work best at a resolution of WXGA (1366 by 768) or higher.

For instance, the choices below require about 22 gigabyte of space, while adding mobile .NET development adds another 13 gigabyte.

When Google Search returns one link twice in the results, thinking it was published on two different dates.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/13

I laughed when https://www.google.com/#q=visual%20studio%20code%20indent%20settings%20per%20file%20type got me the first link twice (see below screenshot).

But I was glad that that link to [WayBack] visual studio code – How to set per-filetype tab size? – Stack Overflow.

This one:

In addition, it taught me how to configure the settings.json with md specific settings, which – despite the IDE indicating the JSON is invalid – just works: markdown indentation is now 2 character positions.

    "[md]": {
      "editor.tabSize": 2
    }

The search result:

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/28

Since I always forget that you can add a service reference by hand-pasting the full path to a local WSDL file, then hit Go: [WayBack] .net – How to generate service reference with only physical wsdl file – Stack Overflow
