One of the top reported Microsoft Connect issues with VS 2010 has been an issue where context menus scroll even when there is sufficient screen real estate to show the menu in its entirely (with no scrolling required).

The VS and WPF teams issued public hotfixes today that you can download to fix this issue. You can learn more and download them here.

You can review my previous posts about other public VS 2010 hotfixes that are available below:

Earlier this week I blogged about the availability of a patch on the Microsoft Download Center to fix the recent ASP.NET Security Vulnerability.

Today we also made it possible to update systems through Windows Update (WU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).  This enables administrators to more easily streamline patch installs, and enables you to take advantage of the WU/WSUS infrastructure to detect which patches you should install based on what versions of .NET are on your system.

Please make sure to install these updates as soon as possible on your servers.  This will prevent attackers from using the vulnerability to attack your systems.

Using Windows Update

If you run Windows Update on your system you’ll see the security updates listed if you haven’t already installed them on your computer.  Note that you’ll see a separate update available for each version of .NET you have installed on your system:

Please make sure all of the “Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework” updates are selected and then apply them to keep your system secure.

During the Tech•Ed 2010 conference in June, Microsoft announced the availability of the free Bing Map App SDK, which enables developers to write map-centric applications on top of the Bing Maps explore site located at bing.com/maps/explore/.

This presents ample opportunities for organizations, businesses or hobbyists to create their own mapping experiences within Bing Maps. Businesses can write apps to advertise their products or to complement their online services. For example, bestparking.com developed a “Parking finder” app, which helps you find all parking facilities in your city using their database.

Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) has a rich data-binding system. In addition to being a key enabler for loose coupling of the UI definition from the supporting logic and data through the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern, the data-binding system has powerful and flexible support for business data-validation scenarios. The data-binding mechanisms in WPF include several options for evaluating the validity of input data when you create an editable view. Plus, WPF templating and styling capabilities for controls give you the ability to easily customize the way you indicate validation errors to the user.

To support complex rules and to display validation errors to the user, you generally need to employ a combination of the available validation mechanisms. Even a seemingly simple data input form can present validation challenges when the business rules get complex. Common scenarios involve both simple rules at an individual property level, and cross-coupled properties where the validity of one property depends on the value of another property. However, the validation support in WPF data binding makes it easy to address these challenges.

If you are a Florida .NET Developer and live anywhere near Orlando, Florida and Miami, Florida, you might want to attend the Visual Studio 2010 Launch Events in Florida.

  • Miami, Florida – April 20, 2010 ( Small Launch )
  • Orlando, Florida – April 22, 2010 ( Big Launch )

Rumor has it that you probably won’t see any free licenses for Visual Studio 2010 at these events, but you can still check out the Visual Studio 2010 Presentations and Demos. The launch event presentations are more flash and marketing, but you still get a survey of new development features and technologies in Visual Studio 2010.
