יום שלישי, אוגוסט 12, 2008

VS 2008 SP1: Add Reference to ADO.Net Data Service Not a log time ago, when Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta was released, I updated my ADO.Net Data Services series to the SP1 bits.

In SP1 of Visual Studio 2008, things are a bit easier, with the Add Service Reference improvements that now supports ADO.Net Data Service references. So, after you have created a simple...

יום רביעי, יולי 30, 2008

Close the Current File in Visual Studio I spend many hours a day working with Visual Studio 2008 and the Office Product.
