  • Conditional compilation in C# - explaining System.Diagnostics.ConditionalAttribute

  • Build a sandcastle today - download the CTP

    Sometimes codenames are just funny. Sandcastle seems to be one of these. So what's in a name? You know both C# (since version 1.0) and VB.NET (since version 8.0 == 2005) support XML comments to document (the public parts of) your code. That's a great thing, but what you end up with is a just a big chunk...

  • MD5 and SHA1 File Checksum Calculcator

    So here's a new tool for my personal toolbox: a simple MD5 checksum calculator for files, written in .NET 2.0. The little "open Visual Studio 2005 trigger" story: A friend of mine reported a problem with his Vista Beta 2 installation which reported corruption, so the obvious first check was to calculate...

  • Some hot releases

    Rather calm on my blog lately due to a high workload. So, let's give a little overview of some recent hot releases that are worth to check out in case of some spare free time. This summer, I'll try to put some more serious posts on the web over here. Here we go: First of all, there's of course Windows...

  • Custom MSBuild tasks

    Introduction I guess most of my blog readers are familiar with the new build system in .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. In the past, project files were only consumable by Visual Studio .NET. Today, project files (which are XML-based) are VS-independent and can be used to build the project using MSBuild...

  • Oh My ... - Musings on the Visual Basic 2005 My namespace and bringing it to C#

    Introduction Although I'm primarily a C# guy, often I have to look at other languages in the .NET universe as well. Actually I come from a big Visual Basic background in the past (in the pre-.NET era which started for me in early 2001) having written several applications in Visual Basic. Currently I...

  • The anatomy of v2.0.50727.42

    A couple of days ago I posted the final build number of .NET Framework v2.0 and VS2005 (starts with 8. instead of 2. but for the rest it's exactly the same). Unfortunately, a pretty heavy spam cleaning script on my database deleted some of my latest posts. Luckily SQL Server's backup functionality saved...
