The .NET Framework provides a surprising new way to quickly and easily create user interface test automation. By using objects in the System.Reflection and System.Threading namespaces, you can write automated tests in minutes instead of hours. This article walks you through the building of a typical Windows-based application that will be used as the test subject. The author then runs through the creation of a C#-based test tool that simulates clicking the test app's UI controls and checks the application's state. After the tool is built, the author explains in detail how it works so you can modify and extend it for your own use.

C# allows developers to embed XML comments into their source files-a useful facility, especially when more than one programmer is working on the same code. The C# parser can expand these XML tags to provide additional information and export them to an external document for further processing. This article shows how to use XML comments and explains the relevant tags. The author demonstrates how to set up your project to export your XML comments into convenient documentation for the benefit of other developers. He also shows how to use comments to generate help files.

When I create a new file system based web application in Visual Studio 2010, for example, named as "MyWebSite", two folders were created by the studio: MyWebSite and MyWebSite(2). The second folder only contains a solution file while the first folder has the solution file as well. Is this a new feature? Where is the setting that can avoid the second folder? Thanks,
I have several excel spreadsheet fils, each of them contains multiple work sheets that may storing images or data.

I have three databases named XDW, XOLTP, XOLTPSchema. All of these are for only one application. In the application, user should do backup/restore using GUI.
1. How I should do backup/restore in one transaction? i.e. all of three actions should be success elsewhere all of them should fail.
2. Is it possible to backup them into only one file e.g. X.bak?
3. Or, What is the standard solution in this condition?
Thanks in advance.
