Allow language selection (C#, VB, C++, etc) for examples in low-bandwidth mode RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The low bandwidth version of MSDN should allow to filter languages like the regular version.
    Some pages make you scroll several pages down just to look at the desired example.

    This wouldn't affect the performance at all.

  • If it can be done without affecting performance, I agree this would be useful.

    I suspect, however, that the feature on the regular view involves Javascript, given how it immediately shows/hides the relevant code as you change the setting.

    For low-bandwidth, perhaps the setting could simply affect what text is actually served by the MSDN web server, rather than having the exact behavior the regular view has.  This would have the added benefit of further reducing the actual bandwidth used.

  • Can I vote here? With language filters in the 'low bandwidth' version I would never switch to 'full blown' again.

  • We are definately looking into this. We will be coming out with a light-weight design that has the best of loband and current classic (deep tree TOC) view.
