Visual C++ .NET: Tips and Tricks to Bolster Your Managed C++ Code in Visual Studio .NET

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Developers using the Managed Extensions for C++ have more options than those using other languages because C++ is a lower-level language. However, this means an increase in code complexity. This article discusses a few of the more complex issues facing developers, such as operator overloading, managed types and unmanaged code, and boxing. Also covered are the is operator, the using statement, and string conversions. The author points out the flexibility of Managed Extensions for C++ and outlines the additional effort that is required for you to take advantage of its increased power and flexibility.

Search and Navigation Tips/Tricks with Visual Studio


This is the twenty-seventh in a series of blog posts I'm doing on the VS 2010 and .NET 4 release.

Today's blog post continues on from the Debugging Tips post I did last week, and covers some useful searching and navigation tips/tricks you can take advantage of within Visual Studio.  These tips were ones that my friend Scott Cate (who has blogged dozens of great VS tips and tricks here) recently recommended to me as good tips that most developers using Visual Studio don't seem to know about (even though most have been in the product for awhile). 

Hopefully this post will help you discover them if you aren't already taking advantage of them.  They are all easy to learn, and can help save you a bunch of time.

Ctrl + i - Incremental Search

Most developers using Visual Studio are familiar with the "Find dialog" that you can launch by pressing the "Ctrl + F" key within the IDE.  A surprisingly large number of developers, though, aren't familiar with the "Incremental Search"

When Visual Studio 2005 ships, it will include a major upgrade to the Visual C++ Libraries that was the result of a complete security review of the functions contained in the C Runtime Library, Standard C++ Library, ATL, and MFC. From that extensive review came the Safe C and C++ Libraries, which can improve the security and robustness of your apps.

Visual Studio .NET: Managed Extensions Bring .NET CLR Support to C++


If you're a longtime C++ programmer, the thought of migrating to Visual Studio .NET might make you wary at first. However, a new feature of Visual C++, the managed extensions for C++, allows you to build apps with the .NET Framework. When you use managed C++, your code is handled by the common language runtime (CLR). This provides advanced features like garbage collection, interoperability, and more. This article explains why you'd want to use the managed extensions, how to use them, how to mix managed and unmanaged code, and how your managed code can interoperate with programs written in other languages.

Debugging Tips with Visual Studio 2010

This is the twenty-sixth in a series of blog posts I'm doing on the VS 2010 and .NET 4 release.

The Weekly Source Code 56 - Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Training Kit - Code Contracts, P

Do you like a big pile of source code? Well, there is an imperial buttload of source in the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Training Kit . It's actually a 178 meg download, which is insane. Perhaps start your download now and get it in the morning when you get up. It's extremely well put together and I say Kudos to the folks that did it. They are better people than I. I like to explore it while watching TV myself and found myself looking through tonight. I checked my blog and while I thought I'd shared this with you before, Dear Reader, I hadn't. My bad, because it's pure gold . With C# and VB, natch. Here's an outline of what's inside. I've heard of folks setting up lunch-time study groups and going through...(read more)

Accessing code in InfoPath 2003 forms from Visual Studio 2005

Can vbscript code contained in an InfoPath 2003 form be accessed from VS2005 on a machine running Office 2010? We are testing Office 2010 our our PC's and the custom task pane code that works just fine on PC's running Office/InfoPath 2007 does not run on the test PC's. I've been reading that the vbscript code in the form can't be edited directly when opening the form in InfoPath 2010, but that's not what I'm trying to do. I want to access the vbscript code through the .Extension property of the XDocument object from client side javascript code on an .aspx page like we have done for years. The existing code, which runs perfectly on PC's with Office/InfoPath 2007,  looks like this ... var xDoc = window.external.Window.XDocument; xDoc.Extension.UserLookupDone (userid); When run on PC's with Office/InfoPath 2010 the code throws error "Class doesn't support Automation". Are we trying something that is no longer possible? Any help is appreciated.

Create DLL from C code using Visual Studio 2005

I have a commercial application (ZEMAX) that uses DLLs to describe problem geometry.  They provided source code in C for one of their DLLs.  I would like to modify that source code and generate a modified DLL.  Can I do that with Visual Studio 2005 (how?) or do I need a different IDE?

Error code -2068578304 When Installing Express SP1 x64 as a Part of Visual Studio 2010 Installation

Howdy! I was installing the VS 2010 on my server running Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 and all of a sudden the setup finished with " Setup completed, however, there were failures reported installing optional components. " The final status is success. The left-hand pane of the finish page reads as: The following component failed to install: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Service Pack 1 (x64).   Leaving alone the fact why setup executed the custom action that tried to install SQL Server Express Edition and Compact Edition when I just asked it to install SQL components (which presumably should be SQL SMO and DMO libraries), I would like to understand what had happed to Express install.   Inspecting the .\Logs\dd_error_vs_vstdcore_100.txt file gives the following record:   [09/16/10,16:06:51] Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Service Pack 1 (x64): [2] Error code -2068578304 for this component is not recognized.
