Did you know? – Sharepoint Extensions for VS 2008 can be installed in XP

Did you know that “You can install Sharepoint Extensions for VS 2008 in Windows XP?”

Solution: In registry under

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions

Create a key called 12.0 and add a string value called “Sharepoint” with a value of “Installed” in it.

How can it be helpful: This is a hack which enables the sharepoint extension for VS 2008Ā to get installed in XP.

I got this hack from Janne Mattila’s blog. Thanks a bunch šŸ™‚

Hope this helps.

Happy Programming!!!

Did You Know?

I was just wondering how it would be to have a “Did You Know” section in our blog. The objective of this section would be to have a max of 4 lines of text where in the first line would be the Title (duh), second line would beĀ  Solution, third line would be how it could be useful and finally a simple example. Let me know what you think.

Let me start of by giving the DYK series # 1

Did You Know that “It is possible to have default Binding in WPF?”

SolutionĀ : Just specify the FallbackValue

How can it be helpful: Helps designers to see some value before the control gets bound.

Example :

<TextBox Margin="4" Text="{Binding Path=FirstName, FallbackValue=First name goes here}" FontStyle="Italic" Grid.Column="1"/>

Hope this helps.

Happy Programming!!!
