Hi Sweety,

I am a little confused with your question. Do you mean create an editor that runs within VS 2008, or create an editor using VS 2008? If you are wanting to create an editor that runs under VS 2008, then I would suggest you ask your question in the Professional Visual Studio Extensibility forum (http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=389). The book associated with that forum, Professional Visual Studio Extensibility, is the best resource available on the topic of coding add-ins, macros, and extensions for Visual Studio.

By far the best technology for drawing and transforming shapes under .NET is Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). There is a chapter in Professional Visual Studio 2008 that explains how to get started with WPF using VS 2008.

Best Regards,
David Gardner

Thanks for your reply David...

I don't want to create an editor which runs under VS 2008.....
But I want to create it using VS2008 and should be portable.If possible so....

As I am a newbie and don't know anything than CORE JAVA I am finding a technology that suits perfect for my project....

By using editor user should be able to create "Road Maps" such that
1.user should be able to draw the lines..
2.user should be able to perform basic transformations on it like extend it, shrink it etc..
3.user should be able to give names to the start and end points
4.user should be able to give distance between those points

Any advice would be beneficial for me...

Thanks & Regards

Sweety

Thanks for clarifying your requirements. As I mentioned earlier, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is by far the best technology under .NET to perform exactly the type of drawing and transformation tasks that you describe.

We have a chapter in our book that introduces WPF, but it is only an introductory overview/getting started guide that focuses on teaching you how to use Visual Studio and Expression Blend to create WPF applications. Unfortunately this wouldn't provide enough information for you to code this solution.

The good news is that there is a huge amount of information freely available online about WPF - in various different forms. The official Microsoft Getting Started documentation on WPF is a good starting point and can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms742119.aspx. Once you've come up to speed on the basics of WPF, you might want to check out the comprehensive list of WPF samples at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms771633.aspx.

There are also the WPF Hands-On-Labs at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netf.../aa663316.aspx. While these were written for VS 2005, they should still work fine if you are using VS 2008. I haven't gone through these personally so I can't vouch for their usefulness, however I have gone through a number of other Hands-On-Labs on different technologies and always found them to be of high-quality.

Finally if you prefer learning via video instruction you should do a search for WPF on the Microsoft On-Demand Webcast site at http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/Se...ontrol=yes;s=1. At the end of most titles in the search results you will see a level (e.g. Level 100, Level 200, etc). These levels correspond to how basic or advanced the video is. Level 100 is an introduction, whereas Level 300 is an advanced topic that generally assumes a great deal of prior knowledge.

Good luck!

hi im not sure if im in the correct forum, but pls guys n gals i really help..

im struggling over the net to get dirrefnt replies in various forums, and till nw im still stucked.



(Using visual studio.net 2003)
I have the following question:



The purpose of this assignment is to produce a piece of software that would:
• Store on sequential file(s) digital images with associated text.
• Provide a means to maintain these file(s).
• Provide a means for retrieving the information from these file(s) in such a way to enable the
display a selected image with its associated text.
• Provide a means to navigate through previously selected images with their associated text.
• Provide a means to navigate sequentially images with their associated text.

To achieve the implementation of this software you will be expected to utilise appropriate Object Oriented techniques, User-Defined Data Types. Sequential File facilities including StreamWriter and streamReader.

The user interface is the software to be designed and implemented as a Multiple Document
Interface (MDI).

Task 1
Design a suitable record structure(s) for storing, as sequential file(s), the data required for each
image including its associated text. Each image should be given a unique sequential reference
number.

Design suitable User-Defined Data type(s) for processing the record structure(s).

many thx (pls help me how to start with)
