  • Most Common VS IDE mistake

    I think the most common mistake that I always encounter with VS is on adding new projects. I have all the VS family installed (VB.NET, C#, etc.) and I sometimes use VB.NET just for trying some things out.

    When you just want to watch for the result of a particular operation, like (this.Right - this.Left)/2 you don't need to copy and paste it in the Immediate Window or launch QuickWatch with the expression selected. You just have to select the said expression and point the mouse over it.

  • Visual Studio Tip #3 - Class View

    Besides Solution Explorer and Property Grid on my right hand side of my VS IDE, I always have the Class View opened. As I was learning C# using Troelsen’s book, I’ve read his example on how to create classes and class members using the Class View and Wizards. Since I hate wizards especially in programming...
