    Hi,

    I very much like what I've seen so far, but I'm a bit unsure about how exactly to specify and track certain features in my VB app.

    I'm not overly fond of the Rad control styles and would prefer to continue using the standard VS system styles. I had hoped to track the frequency with which certain buttons were pressed, but that now seems unlikely. Can I instead monitor how often a certain section of code is executed?

    I'm a total newbie here and would appreciate it if you could provide a VB code sample of how I might do this.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Actually, I've figured out how to do it myself. You actually just name and use the feature at run-time:

    myMonitor.TrackFeature("feature_name")

    Then in the Analytics it will automatically add the feature. If you want to add a category, simply use a "." delimiter, such as this:

    myMonitor.TrackFeature("category_name.feature_name")

    Would be great if you guys made this a bit clearer in the help, but otherwise, keep up the awesome work!

    Hello Chris,

    Thanks for following up with the solution. We'll try to find to make this more visible in the documentation.

    Hi Serge,

    Just one final one, do I need to purchase DevTools in order to then purchase an Analytics licence, or are they totally separate?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Hello, 

    You don't need a license for DevTools in order to buy Analytics. Follow this link. However keep in mind that Analytics is also part of the Platform bundle and you can opt for that purchase. 

    I hope this helps.
