ASP.NET unit testing – ASP.NET Bundle by Typemock

by nmgomes

Unit Testing ASP.NET? ASP.NET unit testing has never been this easy.

Typemock is launching a new product for ASP.NET developers – the ASP.NET Bundle - and for the launch will be giving out FREE licenses to bloggers and their readers.

The ASP.NET Bundle is the ultimate ASP.NET unit testing solution, and offers both Typemock Isolator, a unit test tool and Ivonna, the Isolator add-on for ASP.NET unit testing, for a bargain price.

Typemock Isolator is a leading .NET unit testing tool (C# and VB.NET) for many ‘hard to test’ technologies such as SharePoint, ASP.NET, MVC, WCF, WPF, Silverlight and more. Note that for unit testing Silverlight there is an open source Isolator add-on called SilverUnit.

The first 60 bloggers who will blog this text in their blog and tell us about it, will get a Free Isolator ASP.NET Bundle license (Typemock Isolator + Ivonna). If you post this in an ASP.NET dedicated blog, you'll get a license automatically (even if more than 60 submit) during the first week of this announcement.

Also 8 bloggers will get an additional 2 licenses (each) to give away to their readers / friends.

Go ahead, click the following link for more information on how to get your free license.

Visual Studio Add-in - RockScroll

by nmgomes

A few months ago Scott Hanselman bring to all community fellows a new Visual Studio add-in called RockScroll.

RockScroll was an internal tool from Microsoft but Scott convinced Microsoft to allow him to make it available to community as a "Works on my machine" tool. This means that RockScroll is released with exactly zero warranty or support.

But what does this tool anyway? Simply replace the default vertical scrollbar  with an improved one where the background is the thumbnail of the current code file.

Well, better take a look.


As you can see this add-in let you know where you are editing in a more accurate way and, beside this, you can also easily locate comment lines, breakpoints and changed lines.

The only point I dislike is related to regions. Since the thumbnail is generated based on the file content, if you have collapsed regions you will find difficult to scroll exactly where you want.

You can use it in both in Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008. The Visual Studio 2010 will be shipped with a similar scrollbar(probably an improved version of RockScroll).

I've been using it in VS 2005 since was made available and I can say I didn't notice any related problem or performance hit.

You can get it here. Go try it now.

I made this post draft in September and forgot to publish it. Since then I redirect all colleagues and friends that notice I was using this add-in to this blog. Only a few days ago I notice the post wasn't there so, to them, my apologies.
