|Well, I am still working on the Windows 7 version of my Rich Text Editor project, and still have a lot more work to do.
I am completely redesigning the API, and adding a lot of new functionality, such as the ability for AddIns to add new toolbar themes.
The Windows 7 Task Dialogs and Open/Save file dialogs have been implemented with some difficultly, explained in my 'The Windows API Code Pack' message below.
As this is mostly a straight port from the original VB version into C#, I was using some online code converters to cut down on the amount of typing. All of the converters I have tried use NRefactory, and it seems that NRefactory cannot handle inline functions in VB. All I could get is an 'Invalid Expression' error.
EDIT: NRefactory cannot convert the following class (Where in bold):
Public Class DefaultOptionPanelDescriptor
Private _id As String = String.Empty
Private _optionPanelDescriptors As List(Of IOptionPanelDescriptor) = Nothing
Private _optionPanel As IOptionPanel = Nothing
Public ReadOnly Property ID As String Implements IOptionPanelDescriptor.ID
Public Property Label As String Implements IOptionPanelDescriptor.Label
Public ReadOnly Property ChildOptionPanelDescriptors As IEnumerable(Of IOptionPanelDescriptor) Implements IOptionPanelDescriptor.ChildOptionPanelDescriptors
Private _addIn As AddIn
Private _owner As Object
Private _optionPanelPath As String
Public ReadOnly Property OptionPanel As IOptionPanel Implements IOptionPanelDescriptor.OptionPanel
If _optionPanelPath <> Nothing Then
If _optionPanel Is Nothing Then
_optionPanel = CType(_addIn.CreateObject(_optionPanelPath), IOptionPanel)
If _optionPanel IsNot Nothing Then
_optionPanel.Owner = _owner
_optionPanelPath = Nothing
_addIn = Nothing
Public ReadOnly Property HasOptionPanel As Boolean Implements IOptionPanelDescriptor.HasOptionPanel
Return _optionPanelPath <> Nothing
Public Sub New(ByVal id As String, ByVal label As String)
_id = id
Me.Label = label
Public Sub New(ByVal id As String, ByVal label As String, ByVal dialogPanelDescriptors As List(Of IOptionPanelDescriptor))
Me._optionPanelDescriptors = dialogPanelDescriptors
Public Sub New(ByVal id As String, ByVal label As String, ByVal addIn As AddIn, ByVal owner As Object, ByVal optionPanelPath As String)
_addIn = addIn
_owner = owner
_optionPanelPath = optionPanelPath
NRefactory Said:CONVERSION ERROR: Code could not be converted. Details:
-- line 16 col 12: "Get" expected
Please check for any errors in the original code and try again.
So it wants
Public Get ReadOnly.....
EDIT2: The error occurred because of the Auto-Implemented property above the error line.
Stupid error message.
I think it will be faster to rewrite it by hand!
On a side note, it seems Visual Studio 2012 tries to run code after importing it from another project. I found this out when I imported a control from one project that used a static property from another class to create a full path, and VS gave me a 'Path Cannot Be Null' error on that line, and crashed the designer. When I switched that line to use another property that gave the same path (the first property was initialized with the value of the second [the first property is in a port of the ICSharpCode.Core PropertyService class]), the designer worked fine. VS2010 did the same thing, so I think it is a goof in the Intellisense parser system.
