In Visual Studio And The Mushroom Arguments, we finally got Visual Studio up and running and learned how to build and run our first application in it. Now it’s time to explore the fancy editor in this IDE and see a bit more of what it can do.
In this pumpkin we’re going to take a look at the importance of curly braces and semi-colons in C# code and understand how the editor helps us get those right. We’re also going to play a bit with the windows in the IDE and learn how to recover them in case we mess them up.
First though, let’s just recap what an IDE is all about.
It took a few tries until I got this minimally acceptable. I found it is crucial to get the guiding circle and rulers (which are removed after inking) absolutely correct for the picture to look good. I also wanted to colour it, like the original version in the book, but I found I neither have the appropriate pens nor the appropriate software to do it – for now. Well, all in due time. :D
