    Integrating your Windows Phone unit tests with MSBuild #1: Introduction

    December 13, 2010 Share
    When we started preparing our development infrastructure for the RadControls for Windows Phone 7 suite one of the interesting challenges that we faced was the automation of the unit tests execution. Of course, each developer could run the tests on their local machine manually, but this approach is rather cumbersome, especially when the amount of unit tests grows as the project evolves. Therefore we decided to take some time and research the possibilities for running our unit tests on the Windows Phone emulator automatically by integrating them with our MSBuild projects. The idea we came up with is quite simple in...

    Disabling Full Row Selection in Vista Explorer

    July 22, 2008 Share
    One of the things that irritates me the most in Vista is the enabled by default Full Row Selection in Explorer. To see what I'm talking about open an Explorer window in Details View and try to select files with dragging a rectangle. I googled a bit and found that there is a solution for the problem: Under the key:  [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]   Create a new REG_DWORD value named FullRowSelect. Leave it's data as 0x0 and you are set.   After some more digging, I found several scripts which will automatically set and unset this key for you: Keith Miller' Windows Stuff   I hope this helps....
