Isolated Shell - hardcoded string "Visual Studio" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Environment: VS2010 Isolated Shell application

    Found a string that has "Visual Studio" hardcoded rather than picking up my shell's name (like is typical).

    Location:  Tools - Options - Environment - General tab

    "Visual Studio is currently using hardware-accelerated rendering."

    As you'd expect, I am expecting the name of my product (as most places have).

    Regards,

  • Hi Reed,

    Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about that setting using the hardcoded value.  There are a few options in Tools | Options that don't honor the application's name and have a hardcoded "Visual Studio."

    If having those options not use your application's name is a blocking issue, the only real solution for you would be to hide the General options tab and reimplement your own options tab page for the relevant options that you care about.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Reed,

    As far as I know, you can't change this kind of hardcoded resource. It's saved in related Package. If you want to modify it, you need to remove Options Pages component in .pkgundef file, and then use your custom Option Page instead.

    For your reference, please see: Standard Features of the Isolated Shell .

  • I basically wanted to inform you guys so in the first SP the hardcoded string can be replaced with a "soft" string that takes the proper shell name.

    I figure this is just a string that was overlooked.  I did not want to burn one of my bug reports on something like this.
