  • A General Generics Question -- Don't Fight The Compiler

    I've got a pretty firm grasp on generics such as when to use them, why they are useful, etc. I'm with the rest of the .Net camp when I echo how extremely useful they are. I've also learned that if you're fighting the compiler on generics for more than a few minutes, there is a reason...

  • ApplicationSettingsBase.[Insert Event Name Here] Discrepancy

    Microsoft has done a good job when it comes to event naming within the BCL by following a common naming pattern: the gerund form of the verb is used during the act of doing something (i.e. Form.Closing), whereas the past tense is used after the act has completed (ala Form.Closed).

  • C# Coalesce Operator -- Underlying Type Not Tested For Null?

    I recently came across an irk with the new C# coalesce operator (??) which, if done by design, doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me. I couldn't find any documentation either confirming or denying that this is by design...if it's by design I'm sure there is a good reason for doing so, if not...

  • XNA Studio Express -- Requires C# Express?

    While I don't plan on being the next John Carmack , I was pretty stoked to see that XNA Studio Express went RTM recently. Except for one small problem...XNA will only run on machines with C# Express installed; the full blown non-express SKU's (Professional, VSTS, etc) aren't compatible. I do realize...

  • Microsoft, I'm Pleading With You

    I've mentioned this before, but I'm going to mention it again: Microsoft is absolutely killing me with their version mismatching versioning scheme as of late. A list of complaints: The .Net Framework v3.0 is anything but a major release...hell, it's barely even a point release. It should be called .Net...

  • So That's Why My Orcas CTP Wasn't Mounting

    I recently downloaded the September CTP VPC image of Orcas (aka Visual Studio vNext) only to find that the image I downloaded refused to mount in Virtual PC. Thankfully I just stumbled across Jon Galloway's post about just this issue here . In a nutshell, there are two VPC images I needed to download;...
