  • General discussion

  • The following link is a link to an .arc file which has a muli-project solution in VB for learning WPF within VB.

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aQwjEfM0-khNOA5W0nf6EDOc0SLs-_DW

    Anyone that is interested please download the file and decompress it  to a folder.  Please execute the MainApp.exe before loading it into Visual Studio.  I would appreciate if in this discussion you can let me know how the process went.  After trying the MainApp you can load it into Visual Studio.  It has been test there in Vs 2015 and VS 2019

  • Hi

    Managed to get the download after a bit of a hissy fit by the google site, but found it to be a .rar file - why not a standard .zip? I don't need to download an unrar utility just forone file.

    Hi

    OK, thanks for the .zip - have downloaded and decompressed.

    Have loaded MainApp into VS and run (debug). Got MainWindow with various buttons - so far CollectionControls seems to be running fine. Will try more in depth later.

  • Hello Lloyd,

    If the files are for learning you might consider using GitHub repositories are they are free and easy to view and or open directly in Visual Studio.

  • Really don't know how to use GitHub other than to use it to get items.  Just posted on the drives to let people get it and let me know if what is there works correctly.  Is there a page that shows how to load the solution into GitHub?

  • If you want to follow the code behind (VB) in the general solution you should make the project that you wish to view the startup project or things like breakpoints will not be actioned as the solution will execute the exe rather than the sub project.

  • One more thing to get is Snoop.  This is a debugging app for the XAML of a project.  It will show you the visual tree and the best part is when a binding goes wrong it will show the property as a red line in the list of properties.  A right click will show the menu item to show the binding error.  This is invaluable when developing using WPF.

    In Visual Studio click "Add to Source Control", select GitHub, enter repository name from

    • Sign into GitHub
    • Go to repository page
    • Click the add new respository
    • Enter a name and finish.
    • Copy the name into the text box from going to "Add to Source control"

  • I have added the Git extension to VS 2019 but I get nothing like you describe.

    Before I installed the above I would at least get a red button in the bottom right corner asking if I wanted to use Source Control.  After the install nothing.

    At present I have no idea how to use Git for this or in fact anything.

    This is what shows for a project not yet added to GitHub.

    This is what I see for my personal account (code samples for online articles)
