Visual Rx – Part 3


Visual Rx – Part 3

this post is part of the Visual Rx series and it will focus on how to start working with Visual Rx.

you can see this series TOC in here.

as I was mention in previous posts Visual Rx is divided into 2 parts:

  • SDK – which is the code side on which you define the VisualRxSetting and use Monitor extension method.
  • Viewer – which is listening to the SDK communication channel and visualize the Rx stream.

both parts available at the download page of Visual Rx on CodePlex.

the SDK is also available at NuGet.
the NuGet package include the Rx dlls and the the Visual Rx dlls.

you can get it either directly from the NuGet site:

Rx, Visual Rx, Monitor, Monitoring, Trace, Viewer

or from visual studio add reference (after you will install the NuGet Visual Studio extension which will add "Manage NuGet Packages"):

Rx, Visual Rx, Monitor, Monitoring, Trace, Viewer

Rx, Visual Rx, Monitor, Monitoring, Trace, Viewer


the Viewer is also available in 2 flavor:

  • XCopy – which is a zip that contain the viewer exe + dependencies.
  • MSI – a setup file which will install the viewer on your machine.
  • in the future it may be also available though clickonce.
Where can I get sample code?

you can download the source code from CodePlex and
run the MS-Tests under the System.Reactive.Contrib.Monitoring.UnitTests project (most test is under the Demo folder).

Rx, Visual Rx, Monitor, Monitoring, Trace, Viewer


finally you can vote for feature at the CodePlex site under the Issue Tracker tab.


I hope that you find the Visual Rx useful.
please vote for feature so I will know what does the community value most.

on later post will discuss more advance scenarios.
