Did you know… How to change the build order for your solution? – #333 – Sara Ford’s Weblog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/08

Boy I wish I had known this earlier. Like years ago…

In the Solution Explorer:

  1. Right Click Project
  2. Project Build Oder.
  3. Use the dialog to change the build order

It is next to the “Project Dependencies” in this image from Sara Ford:

Sara Ford: change

Sara Ford: change “Project Build Order”

In the resulting dialog, you can change the build order within your solution.

This can be very useful when – for various reasons – you cannot have Project Level dependencies for an assembly, but have to have Assembly Reference dependencies for individual assemblies.

At a client I bumped into this, and this dialog was a life saver for us.

Others have used it because some Visual Studio versions miscalculate the dependencies.

You should not delete the folder C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/03

Do NOT delete the folder "C:\ProgramData\Package Cache".

But you can move it to another storage and link to it so when you change/update/remove Visual Studio 2012, you still have access to it.

More details at windows – Can I delete the the folder C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\? – Super User.

Visual Studio 2013+: printing with syntax highlighting has moved to the “Productivity Power Tools”

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/04

Back in the Visual Studio 2010 days there was a request for Printing source code with syntax coloring.

Then, the Visual Studio team released an extension that did just that: Color Printing Extension Now Available! – The Visual Studio Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.

It got updated for Visual Studio 2012 in the gallery Color Printing extension, but that does not mention it has moved to the Productivity Power Tools 2013 extension.

Both tools are from the Visual Studio IDE team, and mentioned on their blog.

winforms – Where is the Tab Order Assignment dialog in Visual Studio 2012+? – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/27

Duh: same for VS2013

It is still available, you just need to add it back to the View menu. Tools + Customize, Commands tab, Menu bar = View. Select the menu item in Controls where you want to insert it, say the bottom one. Then Add Command, Category = View, Commands = Tab Order.

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!

Don’t forget to read these as well: Jon Skeet: Multi-threading in .NET: Introduction and suggestions (printable) Multi-threading in .NET: Introduction and suggestions (browseable)
