changing the class item template in VS2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — andreakn @ 03:53

It’s been bugging me for too long, every bloody time I go new -> class in VS2008,
I get a class that is not set to public. I usually don’t realize until I try to use the class at some later time.

Today I finally snapped and fixed it.

To change the template that is used to create new empty classes in VS2008,
– Go to 
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Code\1033
– unzip the
– change the class.cs file
– zip it back up and replace the original .zip file.

In yo face VS2008 default settings!!

useful sorting of Lists

Filed under: Uncategorized — andreakn @ 14:45

slightly in love with ruby/rails sorting
some_list.sort_by{|person| person.age}

I went ahead and made a sort function that only takes a Generic Func as input
here goes:

public static class ListExtender
 public static void Sort<T>(this List<T> list, Func<T,IComparable> func)
 list.Sort((a, b) => func(a).CompareTo(func(b)));

So I can now sort for instance cards like this:

Cards.Sort(card => card.Value )
